Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
We added 1/2 medium chopped onion about a clove of minced garlic and some crushed rosemary in addition to the ingredients in the printed recipe. This recipe was suprisingly delicious and will be added to our regular rotation. The only downside is that it takes an hour in the oven so it's not a quick side dish.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
These cookies were delicious! This recipe is a keeper. I got 2 Silpat mats for Christmas and I've been dying to use them. They worked wonderfully! I changed a few things that made the cookies that much better: I too used half butter/half shortening and half brown/half white sugar like I saw in someone's review. It made the cookies thick and very moist. I used a heaping melon ball scooper and got 4 dozen cookies. We added 1/2 cup of dried cranberries to half of the batter and the cranberries just put these cookies over the top for me! My fiance prefers the ones without cranberries but he liked both and he usually won't eat cranberries. 8 minutes left the cookies a little too moist. Just shy of 10 minutes seems to be right with my oven. I added a teaspoon of butter flavoring to enhance the shortening and a teaspoon of chocolate flavoring since I was a little short on cocoa powder. We will make these again soon!

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
When I've used Royal Icing in the past it can take up to 2 days to set and as I was decorating the cookies for the next morning I had to have something that set overnight. This did set overnight, held sprinkles fabulously, was easy to pipe and kept its shape. I didn't think it was too sweet, I added half almond half vanilla flavoring. The reason I gave it 3 stars is that it separated... I added rose petal pink wilton gel coloring and mixed well and the color separated. It looked almost marbled (although not as pretty). I know that shortening can cause this sometimes but I was using all vegetable shortening and all my ingredients were fresh. It was even a new pot of gel color, I had to remove the foil seal. In reading the other reviews noone else mentioned this so I'm not sure what I did wrong.

Bordelaise Sauce with Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
This tasted really good! But I guess I cooked it a little too long as it didn't make much. I even added more water to it and it still only came out like maybe a cup and a half. If you're making this recpie for more than 2 people, double it. Also, I had everything on hand except the shallots so I used regular sweet onion instead and it still tasted great. I used Shiraz as the red wine. Overall a really good recipe!

Corn Casserole I

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
Good recipe but mine needs tweaking... I didn't have a can of creamed corn or chilis so I used two cans of whole kernel instead and left the chilis out all together. I added a little milk to make up for the moisture lost from not having the creamed corn but I didn't add enough and as a result it turned out dry. My boyfriend, however, loved it. I think the next time I make it I'll make sure I have the correct ingredients on hand and I'm sure it will be better. My boyfriend also said it reminded him of quiche. While I'm not sure about it tasting like quiche it was good even though it was dry.
