Perfect Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2013
This is a great GF cookie recipe. I love that they dont spread out thin like other GF cookies. I can even press them with a fork and they dont get too thin. I used regular butter instead of margarine (i can't have soybean oil which is in alot of margarine) and I substituted 1 1/2 cups Trader Joe's GF baking mix (because I can't have soy flour). Everyone loves them. Also great with chocolate chunks from Enjoy Life mixed in!

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
Fabulous! I have made these 3 times. Always good and so yummy. I use butter because I dont have lard. Doesn't seem to matter. Mix the dough and knead it with your hands. You dont need any fancy equipment. Be sure to roll them *paper thin* with a rolling pin. As thin as you can get them. Cook them on a flat skillet/iron gridle until they are bubbly and browning a bit. I flip them once. Then stack them on a plate as you cook them and keep them covered with tinfoil. The steam will keep them moist and take the crunchy texture away. I have used them to make enchiladas and they are very pliable and turn out great! For me, this recipe makes 10 very large tortillas (burrito size).

Pizza Sauce and Dough

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
The best tasting pizza crust! I already have a sauce I like, but was still hunting for the best crust recipe. This is it! The others I have tried were ok, but sort of bready/bland. The beer MUST be the key! Dont substitute another liquid. Be sure to cook on a preheated pizza stone at around 500 degrees for a good crust. Crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. YUM!

Zucchini Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
I have made this cobbler 4 times and every time I LOVE it. I follow the recipe exactly, worried that I might not "mask" the zucchini enough if I cut back, and then every time its done I realize I should have either 1) cut back on the crumb topping, or 2) added much more zucchini (because they do cook down quite a bit when you are cooking them in the lemon juice). ***For me, this a perfect way to use up the HUGE zucchinis I find too late under my zucchini plant. (the larger ones are more dry and have a less pronounced flavor). For example, I made this recipe yesterday using just ONE GIANT zucchini! You must peel and then seed/core the zucchini, then slice thin with a mandolin. Preparing the zucchini this way will make them very hard to distinguish from apples.*** Also, I like to add a cup of rolled oats for texture. And dont be afraid to overcook them like apples, they are better that way, particularly the larger ones need to be cooked longer to break down the tough texture.

Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles II

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
These cookies are fantastic! I was looking for a snicker doodle recipe and was frustrated that most seemed to use cream of tartar, which I did not have. I was so happy to find this recipe! Also because I usually cook with whole wheat pastry flour-bonus! I made this recipe exactly as written (which I don't always do) and would not change it. I did runout of cinnamon sugar so had to make an extra half batch of that-no biggie. I wanted lots of cinnamon flavor. I made them a little bigger, 9 cookies per sheet and it made 25 gorgeous, perfect, tasty cookies. Crispy on the outside/edges and soft on the inside.

Grandma Bellows' Lemony Shrimp Macaroni Salad with Herbs

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
i really like this recipe and will for sure make it again, but next time will use only half the lemon juice. i know "lemony" is in the name of the recipe, but it was still too lemony for me, personally. i also used half mayo and half greek yogurt, just to make it a little healthier.

Rocky Road

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
only three stars because, while it was very quick and easy for me to make with my 4 year old, it was not nearly as awesome as some of the other reviews led me to believe. (it was pretty much exactly as you would think melted choc chips and peanut butter would taste together with marshmallows thrown in - good, but nothing spectacular). also, my chocolate/peanut butter mixture started to become quite hard as i was stirring/melting it and at the end i had a really hard time mixing in the marshmallows. i am assuming i cooked it too long. so it would be helpful if the recipe were to state "only cook just until melted".

Grandma's Eggless, Butterless, Milkless Cake

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
This is a really great recipe! We are trying to cut way back on dairy in our family and so I was searching for dinner recipes and stumbled across this. Since my son's bday is next week, I thought I would try it out. We all loved it! Much better than a store bought or box cake mix. We dont even have food allergies, and I would still choose this cake recipe. I read all the previous reviews and like others suggested, I added 1 tsp salt and subbed 1/2 brown sugar. (I also like my chocolate cake pretty rich, so I threw in a handful of choc chips). One person suggested substituting juice for the water and so I tried that out too (subbed 1/2 apple grape juice for water) and I personally thought it made it slightly too flavorful/sweet. I will only use water next time. My cake wasn't done in the suggested cook time, though. It took 30 minutes. This cake has a great texture and is really moist. Doesn't need any icing. Powdered sugar on top is perfect. And it was such a simple recipe and I already had all the ingredients. I will definitely make it for the party (and future parties!). Thanks!

Glazed Salmon Fillet

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
This was a good recipe, but a little too sweet. Could probably use a touch more lemon. I scaled the recipe back to serve 2 and it still called for over a 1/4 cup sugar. Next time I will use less. Also, the scaled back recipe called for over a 1/4 cup dill, which was just too much. I only used half that amount and that was perfect. I really liked the addition of the cayenne!

Ranger Cookies I

Reviewed: May 2, 2005
This is one of my favorite cookies! Definitely too much flour in this recipe, though. I agree with another reviewer to reduce by one cup. I also like to add chocolate chips!

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
This was fantastic! By far one of my favorite recipes from this site, and one of the only ones I've never "tweaked". Per another member's suggestion, the first time I made it I used Mahi Mahi, which was wonderful. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly as written. The fresh lime really made all the difference. And although somewhat time consuming, it wasn't so difficult that I won't make it again and again. The beer batter recipe was a great one and even if you don't want to make tacos, it's great for just making fish and chips, too. I made this again, trying to be healthy and just used grilled fish, nonfat yogurt and light mayo, and instead of cabbage I used "broccoli slaw" which looks like coleslaw and comes already cut up and pre-packaged. Even this way, it was GREAT! I don't think you can go wrong with this sauce no matter how you make your tacos.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2001
Don't skimp on the seasonings! Sour cream is really good on these, too.
