Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
Seriously...resist the temptation to bake these to golden! They will be crispy through and through instead of crispy out and chewy inside. If you roll the dough into balls and roll them in sugar (which I did, and highly recommend!), you can bake as-is, unflattened, until the cookies look puffy and are done according to a toothpick. Pull them out, and as they cool, they'll deflate and have those beautiful cracks that magically appear. Magnificent looking, great tasting, just watch that bake time!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
I always like to increase the spices in this, just adding whatever I happen to have on hand - I'm a big fan of nutmeg. Anyways, pretty straightforward, roll into a ball, roll ball in sugar, and bake. Don't flatten; bake until done, but still puffy (use toothpick to check). The cookies will deflate as they cool and look amazing!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
Make sure not to make these the day ahead, or the chocolate shell will start falling off. Also, dry the strawberries before trying to dip. These were made for a party, and looked great dipped in semisweet chocolate with white chocolate drizzled over top.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
These cookies are great! I've used many variations, such as chocolate pudding and white chocolate chips, and vanilla pudding with white chocolate chips and Craisins. Anything and everything goes! Note: when they're fresh out of the oven, they're really soft. Let sit for a few minutes so they don't fall apart as you try to pick them up. EDIT: these taste GREAT, but to make them look beautiful as well, first refrigerate the dough to make it easier to handle. Roll however much dough you want your cookie to be into a perfect ball, then use the heel of your hand to squash it to about the thickness you want the final cookie to be. Beautiful AND delicious!

Rosemary Mashed Potatoes and Yams with Garlic and Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
these were AMAZING. what i actually did was cut the tops of those small, red potatoes off, and hollowed them out. i baked them a bit, then piped the mashed potatoes and yams into the small potatoes. when people saw them, the orange yams, green rosemary, and red potatoes just left them speechless (not to mention the flavor)!

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
i made two batches and it still wasn't enough to keep a party of 20 satisfied! it also works well if you don't have time to freeze the punch. the only thing might be that it's a bit too sweet; i added a little bit of ginger ale to dilute it.

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
this was excellent, even though i had no potatoes handy, i just used a bit more corn. the only thing was the pepper-y taste, which was a bit much for my tastes.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
oh my goodness i could've died and gone to heaven right then and there. i used pasta shells instead of the long noodles, basically because they were handy, and it turned out even greater than i expected. definitely a keeper!

Cornbread Muffins I

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
about 15 min in, i checked them and they looked a bit too crunchy on the outside, so i covered them with foil and put them back in for another 10-15 min. the result-crusty outside and moist inside! absolutely delicious!

Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007

Warm Apple Buttermilk Custard Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2007
This was a pretty good pie, but don't make it the day before and reheat it. I used 1 cup of sugar for the filling, and 1/2 cup of both granulated and brown sugar for the topping. I only regret that I had to leave it until the next day.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2007
This is an amazing cake. Admittedly, when you make it, it doesn't quite look like the picture. The frosting's a bit yellower and the chocolate curls aren't going to come out as well, but it tastes great. I've taken it to quite a few parties, and each time, it's disappeared instantly!

Ham 'N' Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
this was an amazing quiche. it also happened to be the first time i've ever tried a quiche. it was nice and easy. i will say that i accidentally used a pie crust, but it still turned out fine. the ham made it slightly salty, so this isn't for a low-salt dieter. but otherwise, it was amazing and i can't wait to make it again!
