Cowboy Cookies III

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
These cookies are great! Exactly what I was looking for: right in between a typical chocolate chip cookie and an oatmeal chip cookie. I followed the reviewers suggestions and the cookies came out thick and chewy and stayed that way for days (they were gone after that). Here is what I did: I reduced the butter and both sugars to 3/4 cup each. Make sure you cream them well! Also be sure to whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together before adding to the rest of the ingredients. I used 2 cups of chocolate (I'm a chocoholic). Once the ingredients were combined, I refrigerated the dough for 1 hour. I used parchment paper instead of butter on the pan, and the bottoms hardly even browned (and I often burn the bottom of my cookies!). Oven temp of 375 was perfect and I left them in for 9 min. Result: chewy gooey goodness!

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
Why does everyone say double the sauce? I think the amount in the recipe is perfect (after all, you still want to taste the meat!). I reduced the brown sugar in the sauce by half, I personally don't like the glaze to be too sweet.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
I bought a deep dish crust, however, I still had way too much filling (about 1 cup extra). My whole family seemed to like the pie. It was not what I expected though. It was much lighter and creamier in texture than the store bought variety and it was also a bit less sweet. Although not quite what I expected, the taste was excellent. I would make it again.

Banana Rum Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Tasted fine, but nothing special. Probably won't make it again. I would recommend increasing the rum.

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
While easy to prepare, this recipe is missing something. I prefer serving it with parmesan cheese instead of feta.

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
It is a simple recipe, and you can definitely tell it is smothered in salsa. However, it came out VERY juicy, and I did not bother pounding the chicken as some other viewers suggested. A very healthy recipe as well! Will make again.

Popularity Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
These were good but I found the toffee layer to be a little too thick. They tasted much better the next day. Also good with graham crackers.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
All I could smell and taste was browned butter. I ate one fresh out of the oven. Thankfully the smell and taste softened overnight in the fridge since I had to serve it to guests the next day. Ppl ate it at dinner, so that is the only reason I am giving it one star. Will not try this again.

Banana Muffins I

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
My husband enjoyed them but admitted he could tell they were low fat. I could hardly tell. My only complaint: they are too small!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
This sauce wasn't bad, but I have had far better. First of all, it was a little too garlicy (and I like garlic!). Second of all, as with all Asain dishes, balance of flavour is key. This dish did not balance, since it lacked the tang that stir-fry dishes need. Tip: for greater complexity of flavour, use fresh ginger.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
This is a wonderful recipe! I gave it four stars because I felt I had to add a little more flavour. 1st of all, I used ground beef to save time (skipped the hour of simmering). Second, I skipped the oil and used a non-stick pot. Next, instead of using sour cream I used plain yoghurt (a lot healthier and trust me, it still tastes really good!). I added a little extra wine because I love the flavour it gives, and instead of adding salt, I simply added soy sauce so that the colour looks even more appetizing. YUM!!!!!!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
This recipe always comes out perfect. Honestly, I've had professionally baked carrot cakes and this one is still better. I tend to find icing too sweet, so I cut the icig sugar in half-just my thing :) Thanks for the post!

Beef Stew VI

Great recipe. However, more cornstarch is necessary and the meat should be browned with some seasoning on it.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
a little bit cakey (and yes, I measure my flour properly), but still very good. They stay nice and tall after coming out of the oven.
