Chocolate Babka

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Wow...this bread tastes amazing! I really thought it wasn't going to turn out because of multiple mishaps on my part. I was also a bit concerned because the recipe calls for just dry active yeast, not fast acting, and the directions don't tell you to proof the yeast. My bread actually didn't rise that much, let alone double in size before punching it down, but I decided to follow through with the recipe anyway, and I'm glad I did!

Jif® Peanut Butter Granola

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
This is delicious! I love being able to make my own granola without any preservatives. I love the peanut butter/honey combo. The recipe does, indeed, need 4 cups of oats and not 1. I halved the recipe, and it still yielded about 3 1/2 cups.

Fabulous Oatmeal-Bran Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
I would really give this 4.5 stars if I could...It's super moist but just too sweet for me. That's an easy fix, though, so I will probably make these again. I added a chopped up pear to the batter, and made muffins.

Italian Pinwheel Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
These are excellent. The outside is a little crispy, while the inside is soft and tender. Even without the herb/butter mixture, this dough would make great rolls!

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
I love this recipe!! I actually threw everything for the filling into my slow cooker for 8 hours. The flavor is great! I will definitely make this again and again.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
Wow...This is easily the best whole wheat bread I've ever made. Usually, when I attempt a whole wheat recipe, the bread inevitably comes out really dense, and well, not good. This bread, however, is really light and soft with a slightly crispy crust. The flavor is a bit sweet, though, a lot like Roman Meal brand, but that can be adjusted.

Fresh Pear Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
I'm giving this four stars because I found the batter to be way too thick. It was more like cookie dough. That being said, I added about 1/2 cup milk, which did the trick. The cake baked beautifully and tasted great.

German Chocolate Cake Frosting II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
This tasted great, but I felt the directions are a bit unclear...how thick is thick? I removed the mixture from the heat as soon as it got thick, but then it never completely set up. It was definitely runny, even after letting it cool completely. I'm wondering if I had kept it on the stove a little bit longer if it would have gotten thicker...I'm not sure. I poured it on the cake, anyway but had to keep it refrigerated.

Chocolate Mint Candies Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I'm not a huge mint chocolate fan, but these are really great. The cookie is soft with just the right amount of chocolate. These cookies also freeze really well.

Pork Chop Suey

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
This was pretty good! I think I may add just a little salt the next time I make it. I also added about a tablespoon of honey for that salty/sweet combo.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
I've always been intimidated to make scones, but this recipe is surprisingly easy! The flavor isn't bad as-is, but there's definitely room to improvise. The texture, however, was a little too moist for my liking.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This is really good! I used ground turkey and added some worcestershire sauce. I didn't think it needed salt...also, I found it wasn't really necessary to simmer the mixture for 30 minutes.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
These are good...they're not the best pumpkin muffins I've had because they're a little bland, but they're still worth making because it's a really fast and easy recipe to throw together. They are moist, though, and I'm sure the flavor would be pretty easy to spruce up.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
I was nervous to make these because a) I don't have a bread machine and b) I always have a terrible time with yeast breads....these, however, turned out great, much to my surprise! I mixed everthing in my Kitchenaid with a dough hook for about 8 minutes, and I used fast-acting yeast, so there was no need for me to proof. I wasn't too sure about how long I should let the dough rise, so I let it rest for about an hour, and it pretty much tripled in size (I have a warm kitchen, though). After that, I followed the directions as stated. I will definitely be making these again!

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
This is a really great recipe...I love the flavors. I boiled my orzo in chicken broth to give it a little extra flavor, and I also squirted some lemon juice over it.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
I was debating whether I should make this because I wasn't sure if I would like the flavor combo. I made it, and I'm so glad I did. The cinnamon/beef flavor is unique, but it somehow goes together really well.

Angel Food Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I was kind of nervous about making this because I've never made candy before, but it really was quite simple! And, it's delicious! It tastes a lot like Crunchies, a favorite of mine. I took other reviewers advice and sifted the baking soda, and i think it really is important to be patient when it comes to the candy reaching 300 degrees.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
I really wanted to love this because of the other reviews, but honestly, I've had better pies. I love what the brown sugar/butter mixture did to the top of my pie, but pouring it on top, through the lattice was kind of awkward. And, I felt like the pie would definitely benefit from some spices. Also, I think using all Granny Smith apples wasn't such a great idea because even once baked, they're still pretty firm. I would recommend using a variety of apples.
