Resurrection Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
I wanted to try this recipe as soon as I saw it... The taste to these is great, but they are not as easy to make as you'd think- Every single one of my "tombs" spilled out and stuck everywhere. So a warning to those just trying this- you may think that you sealed them tightly, but that doesn't make it safe! If I try this again, I will do as another reviewer suggested and wrap each marshmallow with two rolls.

Christmas Stollen

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
This recipe barely rose at all, but my husband (who is dutch and grew up eating stollen) decided to throw it into the oven away. It rose a bit more, but it still came out like a brick. The taste is not bad, but it is also not the same as the stollen he grew up with. I doubt we will try this recipe again.

London Broil II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
I cut meat for a living and just thought I should mention here that flank steak is not the same thing as a london broil. There is a top round london broil and a shoulder cut london broil, both of which are very thick cuts (almost like roasts).... A flank steak is entirely different and very thin cut (as the muscle is naturally thin and small).

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
This was only my second cheesecake, so I am no expert. However, this came out wonderfully. I made my own crust from gingersnap dough, prebaked it, and let it cool while I prepared the filling. For the filling, I made 1.5 times the amount as I have a 10" pan and other reviews said it was a bit skimpy. I also added more spices, including 1t ginger and 1/2t cloves. For marbling, I poured in half of the plain, then the pumpkin, then the plain again and have a beautiful pattern on top. I did not do a waterbath, but put a pan of water on the lower rack. The cake did not crack until after I ran a knife along the edge, but it is very minor. I gave it 4 stars only because of the adjustments I have made.

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
These cookies are just great; they have excellent flavor, perfect crispy-chewy texture, and are easy to make. My only suggestions are to refridgerate the dough before rolling, as it is quite sticky. Also, the first time I made these, I forgot the salt- don't do that! lol

Egg Free Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
I have never made pumpkin cookies before, but these are excellent. I did use half applesauce and half margarine for the shortening and used mostly wheat flour, but I doubt this made a huge difference. Very tasty- will make again!

Addictive Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
I absolutely love these muffins. Admittedly, I do use some adjustments, but they are not major. Instead of all-purpose, I use mostly wheat with some oats and all-purpose mixed in. I also put in raisins and maybe some chocolate chips instead of the nuts. However, these are very tender and have excellent pumpkin flavor; I will now be making these very often!

Ribboned Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
Just tried this recipe, and it tastes delicious. However, the cream cheese mixture did not separate from the rest of the cake, and even though the pan was greased and floured, the top of the cake stuck to the pan. Any suggestions?

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
I'm not sure if 3 stars is fair, as this is a good cookie... but it's not what I was looking for. This cookie doesn't have a very strong peanut butter flavor, and it is too cake-like and fluffy for my liking. I think increasing the amount of peanut butter and oats would improve this recipe.

Quick Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
I tried this recipe as an easier variation to chocolate chip coconut cookies, and it is good! This cake has a nice, chewy texture, good flavor, and is simple to make. My only issue was that I had to bake it a bit longer than the listed time; I only hope I can try to make the recipe a little healthier, too.

Peach Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
I have made this recipe multiple times now, and it is great! As another reviewer said, it is very moist and almost like coffee-cake. In fact, I put one batch into a cake-pan and added a crumb topping- delicious!

Old Time Soft Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
This is over all a very good and easy cookie. They are not too sweet, and would work well with most additions (such as frosting, glaze, etc). They are a bit too cake-like for my preference, but that is a small issue.
