Honey-Oat Pan Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
Delicious, soft and moist and just slightly sweet. Nice hearty texture. I made the dough in the bread machine and then baked as directed and they came out beautifully. I got not quite 2 lbs of finished dough, and used it to make 12 approximately 2.5-oz rolls.

Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
I was a bit disappointed with this recipe. It ended up with a grainy texture and tasted vaguely of scrambled eggs. Perhaps that is because my slow cooker only has high and low, and I used high.

Polish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
Like many other users, I referenced the recipe primarily for the dumplings, and I have to say I was pleased. I did other things with my recipe that made the dumplings cook longer, but even after that (and sitting on the stove waiting for my husband) they never got water-logged or fell apart like most more "biscuit"-type dumplings. They were delightful in a recipe like this, and I look forward to trying them in other soups and stews.

Banana Nut Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
As I was making the batter, i didn't realize my oven had died! I ended up microwaving the brownies for about 10 minutes on high. It was very moist and cakey, I actually think it was slightly underdone. The flavor was really nice, though. I had used 1/4 cup of cocoa, and it was a great chocolate/banana combination.

Easy Garam Masala

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
Thank you! My husband keeps urging me go try cooking Indian food at home, but I didn't want to have to buy a whole bottle of spice I might or might not end up liking. All other recipes were for toasting and grinding whole spices, which I rarely have on hand. This recipe hit the spot perfectly!

Campbell's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
I followed the ingredient list to a tee, but made it on the stovetop instead. Delicious and easy, thank you.

EAGLE BRAND® Chocolate Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
Absolutely awesome. I used 6 oz. Dove dark chocolate because that's what I had on hand. It turned out wonderfully and was delicious with strawberries and angel food cake for Valentine's Day. It also makes a fabulous fudge sauce for ice cream sundaes!

Monkey Bread II

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I wanted to like this, I really did, but I just couldn't. I found the sauce to be the major problem- the recipe makes too much, and with so much butter it ends up far too rich and cloyingly sweet. Not wanting to waste any, I poured some directly into the pan both before and after dunking all the dough balls. While it makes for a beautiful presentation, there's just so much it's overpowering. Also, the bread the recipe makes seems to be too delicate to stand up to such a heavy sauce. I'm sorry but I will not be using this recipe again.

Sour Cream Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
Dense little suckers, they were, but as I'm not an experienced biscuit maker, that might be my technique more than the recipe. They managed to stay moist enough to be palatable, so I will try them a few more times to see if I can get it right.

Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
Yum! I subbed the raspberry jam with strawberry preserves, but it still came out delicious.

Beef Tips

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
A delightfully basic, yet delicious recipe. I omitted the extra salt (figuring correctly that there would be plenty in the soy and worc sauce) and instead of the dry gravy mix, I simply added 3T cornstarch in a slurry with about an ounce of water. Thickened beautifully and tasted great.

Double Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
A bit more dense than a traditional risen roll, but that's to be expected. Still came out warm and soft, and tasted delightful with butter. For the ease and speed of the recipe, I could not possibly ask for more.

Light Fruit and Nut Granola

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
I didn't have any applesauce, so I used a 1/4 c (total) of canola oil- and I'm pretty sure that's why it didn't come out as sweet as I would have expected. It also burned slightly, but that was my oven's fault. :) I will try again with the applesauce, but as it was it was just okay.

Basic Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
These are not quite as sweet as the cornbread I'm used to, but they came out very nicely and made nice individual portions.

Lasagna Toss

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
A fabulous and quick alternative to longer-rising recipes. The kicker is to make sure that the dough is left in a warm place to rise- I usually put it near the stove while it's preheating. Otherwise followed the recipe just as written and it rose nicely and baked up beautifully.

Oatmeal Waffles

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Entirely excellent. I subbed in 1/2 c whole wheat flour for part of the AP, otherwise followed to a t. They came out fluffy and delicious.
