Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
5 stars for how easy it is. I recommend chilling before cutting. I made mine in two pans for super thin bars, i'm glad i did because it's really rich.

Eggnog Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
Really good. They have a nice soft texture, the cookie itself doesn't have much flavor so the frosting is key. They spread more than i expected, next time i'll chill the dough before baking, and maybe add some nutmeg to dough for a little extra flavor. **UPDATE** For people having trouble w/ the cookie flattening: the second time i made these i added 1/4Cup extra flour, and put the baking sheet in the fridge after rolling and pressing the thumbprint. Handling the dough may melt your butter, and melted butter = flat cookie. Extra flour and chilling is key!

Danish Kringle

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
This dough is as close as you'll get to puff pastry/danish dough without all the work that goes into those. It really does need the full 8hrs, i tried to work with it at 7 1/2 and it was still gooey. I made one with nuts(pecans), and one with cream cheese(sweetened) and blackberry jam. The blackberry jam one leaked alot. It can't handle alot of moisture. Next time i want to use apple pie filling, but i'll definitely fish out the apple chunks w/ a fork so there isn't too much saucy-ness to leak out. I also folded it more like a burrito, then made slits on top w/ a knife.

Peanut Butter Brownies II

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
Thick and rich. Next time i'll use a bigger pan to thin these out a little. I had a hard time getting the temp/time right. They started to burn on top but were still undercooked inside, so i lowered the temp and left them in 15 more minutes. I added almost a full cup of peanutbutter, and used mini chips in BOTH batters. It's a really good, easy recipe. Next time, i'll just need to bake them at a lower temp for longer.**Update** These are 10X better the next few days!!

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
This turned out GREAT, but i changed it, so... I used 3 1/2 Cups WW flour, and dusted with Barley flour during kneading because it was sticky. I used a tablespoon of honey instead of sugar, and loaded it with dried basil, garlic, and onion powder. It was the best WW crust ever.

Pastry for Single-Crust Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Really good crust. I added herbs for a savory dish. I wrapped it up and chilled for a few minutes, and when i started to roll it out, i thought it was too crumbly, but it just needed to be warmed/worked a little by hand. It rolled out fine after that. This is my new go to crust!

Cheese Garlic Biscuits I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Wow, these are great. I didn't have milk so i watered down heavy cream, and added more cheese than called for. I "folded" the mixture together to avoid over working and toughening them up. They came out perfect!

Double Chocolate Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
I left out the white chocolate and added chopped almonds and a splash of almond extract instead. They were delicious. After i got the basic shape formed, i sprayed a rubber spatula w/ nonstick spray and smoothed the loafs out. It worked like a charm! I did have trouble cutting them though, a few fell apart, but it may have been my knifes fault. Use a super sharp knife!

Cajun Spicy Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
These were really good! The egg technique is what caught my eye, and it worked great for keeping the spices on the potatoes and crisping up nicely. The spices were good, not too hot, i increased the chili powder and added cayenne. Great technique to play around with, add whatever spices you like.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I'm thrilled to find this recipe! My husband and i are vegetarian, and most store bought puddings/mixes contain gelatin. Now we can have chocolate pudding again! I used vanilla soymilk instead of milk, and a splash of dark rum instead of vanilla. After the first 3 minutes, i stirred it, put it in for another minute, and it was done. So easy. **UPDATE** This makes AWESOME puddin' pops!

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I chopped and toasted the hazelnuts, used 100% whole wheat flour, almond extract, and added a handful of chocolate chips. Shaped and baked on parchment paper. By far the easiest biscotti dough i've EVER worked with! It was like clay, a dream! Maybe the the whole wheat flour made the difference, but since no reviewers are complaining about "sticky dough" or any other of the usual biscotti issues, i'm guessing it's just a great recipe no matter how you change it. Thank you for this recipe!!!

Oatmeal Whole Wheat Quick Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
This is SO easy and pretty healthy. I made the whole thing in the food processor (less bowls to clean). I ground up the oatmeal, then added the rest of the dry ingredients (i added 2Tblspn ground flax seeds to boost the nutrition, some pumpkin seeds, and a little extra salt.) Then i mixed up all the wet ingredients as directed (used soy milk instead of milk, and a little extra honey), added that to the food processor, and whirled it until is formed a dough. I used an ungreased non stick loaf pan. Turned out yummy. Next time i might add an egg to the wet, i think it might do good things for the texture.

Onion Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
This is a great basic quiche ratio. I chopped and roasted a red onion with a little spinach and poultry seasoning. I used 1/2 cup shredded cheddar, and crumbled some goat cheese on top.
