Merenges

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
I was looking for a meringue recipe that i could use to make meringue nests. (I served them with lemon yogurt and raspberries.) This one worked great. However, I tried them plain and they were much too sweet for my taste and I had already reduced the sugar to 1 cup. I didn't have cream of tartar so I used 1/2 tsp of lemon juice and worked fine. This recipe has been added to my box, thank you!

Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
maybe it's just me - but i thought it came out like gruel. i followed the directions and it came out like paste - and i do not like that texture. the flavor was also lacking. i may play with it and see if setting on warm rather than low would help to not over cook it - any suggestions?

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
I followed the recipe and tried the modified versions of other reviews. My family prefers the cakey original version - I even put it all in one 9x13 pan. I do add more spice to suit our taste. But we love it and make it every fall.

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
I like this recipe but will make some minor alterations. First I did cut the sugars to 3/4 c each and it is still a very sweet cookie. I think that I will also cut back on the salt and even the flour maybe to 2 1/2 c as they were quite dense. Also, I used a cookie scoop and the cookies stayed very high - not sure why. Any ideas?

Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
I followed the advice of others and used 1/4 c sugar, less baking powder and some vanilla and I really liked how it turned out. It is a traditional shortcake recipe (biscuit style)which I prefer not a fluffly sponge cake. So if you're looking for angel food cake this isn't for you. I also found that it will serve about 12 rather than 9 just because it is more dense and filling. The dough is supposed to be thick so don't worry when you see it. Also, I used a square pan rather than a round one as it makes for easier slicing and serving.
