Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
The ingredients are the same as the old microwave brittle recipe I'd lost. I'm glad I found it again! One big caveat, though--if you put the peanuts in at the beginning, you will very likely burn the nuts. I (and others, too, I see) recommend cooking the sugar/syrup/salt mixture for about five minutes before adding the peanuts. Let the whole thing cook about another 3-5 minutes before putting in the vanilla and butter. Also, I like to use sea salt or, at the least, kosher salt. Other than that, I think this is an excellent recipe.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
This will be my go-to bread pudding recipe from now on. It's easy, it's consistent, and it's heavenly, both in flavor and texture. I always use raisins because I love them (golden raisins are my favorites). My tweaks are very minor: I use large-ish cubes of sourdough baguette with the crusts cut off, and more bread than the recipe calls for (I eyeball it); I use half-and-half if I have it instead of milk; I double the cinnamon and vanilla because I like the intensity they bring; finally, and most importantly, I let the liquid soak into the bread for an hour or so before I bake it, and I cover it for the first 20 minutes or so. This is all me, but the recipe as is is just delightful.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
This is a perfect recipe, with a couple of notes: (1) just say no to margarine-use butter, please; and (2) be sure to flatten these a bit more than slightly (recipe doesn't stress that enough). Also, pay attention to what the recipe says and do store them in an air-tight container--that is, if you have any left. They are superb.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
This is the easiest, best whole wheat bread recipe I've ever tried. The texture is perfect, and it tastes great. It slices beautifully. I've recently stopped buying whole wheat bread from the supermarket because most brands contain high fructose corn syrup. With this recipe, I now have an easy, healthy replacement. THANK YOU so much for this great recipe!

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
I tried this recipe last night. I'd mentioned to my housemate that it was a five-star recipe. It couldn't be easier to prepare (I added about 1/2 tsp vanilla and reduced the water accordingly, btw). When they were ready, I let my housemate be my guinea pig. His assessment: five stars. My assessment: five stars. I'd give it ten stars if I could. This is a FABULOUS recipe--thanks!
