Chinese Steamed Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
these were good and not too difficult (just time consuming). I think they're slightly less sweet then what you get at dim sum...next time i'm adding a bit more sugar and substituting milk for water. also, you can bake these instead of steaming if you like baked bao better - just remember to brush the top with egg yolk!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
fantastic! my boyfriend loved it, and it was EASY... like others, i added spices (allspice, cinnamon) and i brushed the top with a brown-sugar/water finish to give it an extra sweet crunch.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
wows these are good. light, fluffy, flavorful...and versatile! they taste good with savory and with sweet. also, i used oil instead of shortening (replace 1:1) and they were still rich and amazing.

Vinegar Based BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
Pretty good - tangy, spicy, and once it's on the meat it's the perfect strength. I used this in the place of ketchup for sloppy joes, and it was good but needed some thickening.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
omg amazing. seriously. i've tried a lot of oatmeal cookie recipes and this is the best i've ever tasted. i used nutmeg and cinnamon in this, and added a mix of craisins, raisins, and golden raisins (you can buy a mix in a bag at the grocery store), which really made these a treat!

Spinach Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
I was afraid of making bland lentil soup - this recipe is anything but that! If you want a real soup though, add more water; this came out like more of a stew/porridge for me. Also, I added celery and used healthier brown rice instead of white rice. Serve in a bowl with an over-easy egg on top for a great, protein-packed breakfast!

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
My boyfriend and I enjoyed these, but they're a bit sweet. We ate them with white rice to mellow out the acidic sweetness of the apples.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Yummy! And easy! My only suggestion is to make a cream-cheese based frosting to top it all off ---

BAKER'S® ONE BOWL Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Unbelievably delicious! I brought these to a party and they disappeared. Although perfect as they are, these also taste great with candied ginger - dice and mix right in the batter.
