Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2004
2/19/2006: I made these as written, and also with alterations. They were moist & delicious either way. When I altered them, I used 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 cup melted butter, baked for 23 minutes. I will absolutely make these again, probably with the addition of pecans. UPDATE: 5/26/2006 Made them again, adding a cup of Reese's Peanut Butter Chips.

Pumpkin Rolls I

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
Delicious, soft, and such a pretty colour! I used kabocha pumpkin/squash that I baked and mashed a couple days ago. You cannot taste the pumpkin - which is a plus, as my husband likely wouldn't eat them otherwise. They're more of a conversation piece ;) I made 1/2 of the recipe, so I could use my bread machine to make the dough. The rolls were huge! Next time I would make 24 rolls from a 1/2 recipe, rather than 16. I will make these again, but as round pan rolls, rather than crescents.

Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2004
Made these several times now, raves everytime. Personally, I find the chocolate overwhelming (even with 1/2 cup chopped pecans added!), but they never fail to disappear first & people seek me out for the recipe!! I also cook them for 8 minutes: just until set. Usually along with the pecans, I use 1 cup chocolate chips and a cup of chocolate covered caramel baking pieces and call them Turtle Cookies!

Albondigas Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2002
I really liked this. The first time I made it as is. The second time I used 1 tsp cumin powder, no seeds, 3 cups chopped cabbage, rather than wedges and added a 1/2 cup frozen corn. It's a very pretty, tasty, spicy soup. Absolutely will make it again. It's perfect for the -20C temperatures were having here!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2002
Very good spice cookie. I didn't have a problem with the dough being too soft. (It's cold & dry around here today, maybe that's why.) I made 3 dozen 2-1/2 inch soft, spicy, hard to resist cookies from this recipe.

Gingerbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2004
Excellent soft gingerbread cookies. I have received many compliments!! I must have been using potent powdered ginger: unlike other reviewers, I found my cookies to have a hot ginger taste. As suggested by others, I doubled the cinnamon & added 1/2 tsp allspice. Next time I would leave the cinnamon at 1 tsp, to keep the ginger dominant. I used 1/2 cup shortening (all I had on hand) and 1/2 cup margarine. I did not notice a 'molasses taste'. I recommend rolling the dough out between 2 pieces of plastic wrap, rather than using a floured surface, to reduce the risk of dry cookies. Bake only until the cookies don't look wet. They will be sturdy but still soft when cool.

Oatmeal Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2005
Very nice rolls. Dense, but by no means heavy. I did have to add 1 and 1/2 cups more flour. The dough was still soft. (It's a dry day, too.) My husband loved them. The recipe made 56 ounces of dough, so next time I might half it to make in the bread machine. I'll make again.
