Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
Wow! I didn't have any shortening on hand, so I used margarine as one other reviewer suggested, and they still turned out great! I made the first four plain and topped them with fresh strawberries and cream, then made the second four (the second four came out really big and could've easily been six) with chocolate chips for my son, who adores them. So much better than Bisquick. Thanks!

Wow! Not the twin, but definitely blood related.

Apple Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
Wow. I won't need to look for anymore apple pie recipes. Added some cinnamon and vanilla, used granny smiths instead of macs, and did everything else as directions suggest (all this was personal preference, though), and it came out superb. Hubby and I downed it in two days. My two-year-old didn't like it, but he doesn't like fruit, so he doesn't count. The pie didn't hold together when I served it, but who cares? Didn't affect the taste at all. :) Nice recipe!

Country White Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
I halved the recipe and still got my first real success with yeast bread, so top marks for simplicity. It also tasted really good. The only problem I've had with it (and I've made it twice now) is that it's really dry by day two. I've tried keeping it in tupperware (whole, not sliced) and in plastic wrap, but it just dries out so fast. I'll keep using this one, though, until I find a better-keeping bread that I can make. ;)

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
These were really easy to make, they looked nice, and they made my house smell fantastic, but both times I've made them I haven't been able to *taste* them. After all the great reviews I was expecting them to taste fabulous, but even after adding a ton of butter to the baked rolls, I couldn't get them to have any flavor. I don't want to add cheese or spices, as I wanted a plain, but not plain-tasting, dinner roll. I've never made a bread that didn't even taste like flour before. If anyone knows how to give it a "bread" taste, please let me know! I may use this recipe in the future when I want to make garlic cheese bread, but I don't care for them as-is. I hate giving bad reviews, and I'm sorry. I'll give them one more try, and if they turn out, I'll edit my review. Thanks anyway.

Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
This was really good. If you're making this on the fly, you don't have to chill overnight--just be aware that your rice will come out a little "mushy" and the texture won't be quite as authentic. It'll still taste great though!

Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
These cookies are amazing as is, though I keep tweaking it to get a chewier cookie (they're soft, yes, chewie, no). I guess I've made them about half a dozen times since I found the recipe about a month ago. I've tripled the amount of peanut butter and added a little more brown sugar (about quarter cup), and also I like to add peanut butter chips. I replace 1/2 cup of the creamy peanut butter for extra crunchy, because it adds the little peanut pieces, which is awesome. Thanks for the recipe! Oh, and if you only have bread flour on hand (ahem, oops), use about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups instead of 1 3/4.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
Okay, I had to make these twice. The first time I made them they were too sticky to contemplate, but after taking the advice of other reviewers the second time and cutting the milk considerably, they came out pretty good. That and the fact that they didn't produce the promised gargantuan-sized biscuits are the reasons these only get four stars. Still, I will continue to use this recipe. Thanks J.P., for the biscuits and the tip about the juice glass--worked great!

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I really wanted to like this cookie. Although time-consuming, they were easy enough to make, and the presentation was terrific. Mine came out looking just like the ones in the main photo. I just didn't like the cookie. I might try the concept again with maybe a sugar cookie. I'll keep working with this recipe.
