Powdered Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
I made these on Valentine's Day, for the kids. They were very good. They tasted even better the next day! The only substitution I made was vinegar in place of the cream of tarter, because I didn't have any. I also used home made butter to make these (I was out of butter, too, so I whipped cream until it was butter.) I cut the recipe in half and made the cookies a little smaller and I got 60 of them! The cookies were nice and soft and yummy!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I got the kids to eat zucchini! These were very moist, and the kids had no idea that there was zucchini in them! I tasted it a little bit, but it may have been just because I knew it was there. I used a fine grater and grated the zucchini by hand, and that worked well. The frosting was like fudge! It was very good! But, (I don't believe I'm saying this) the brownies were a little too sweet with all that frosting. I will make both again, but I don't think I will be using them together. (Don't let this stop you from trying it!)*****

Seven Grain Bread II

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I really wanted to make this bread, especially since it was recommended to me by another Allrecipes user! I left out the egg like another reviewer suggested, but only because I had already started making the bread before I realized that I needed one, and I was out. (Mental note to self: read the complete recipe before making!) Anyway, I also used 10 grain cereal and a little milk (because of the no egg thing). I brushed it with melted butter before baking. And after it was finished, I let it cool for a few minutes, then put it in a plastic food storage bag to keep the crust soft. This is a wonderful bread! I can't wait to make it again! (With the egg, of course.) And, I will surely make it again and again! It is much better than store bought!

Hearty Raisin Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
This is Soooo Good! It's not too sweet like the kind you get from the store. I mixed the dough in my bread machine, and baked it in the oven. It turned out great! Watch it, as the recipe suggests, I needed to drape foil over it for the last 15 minutes. I got two beautiful loaves, and the wonderful smell of fresh raisin bread fills the house! Mmmmmmmm!

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
This cake is surprisingly good! I made it with my 8 year old son (and help from my 3 year old daughter) as a science and math experiment. We only made 1/2 the recipe- which my son figured the conversions. It was fun teaching the reaction of the baking soda and vinegar, too! We were out of vanilla extract, so we subbed mint extract. The end result was great! The kids all loved it! I KNOW we will be making this one again!

Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
These pretzels are very good! I, too, brush them with butter instead of the egg before baking. The recipe makes a lot, so I usually freeze half. To do this, shape the dough, then freeze the unbaked pretzels on a cookie sheet. Once they are frozen, you can transfer them to a freezer bag. When you want to make them, just take them out of the freezer and put them on a lightly oiled cookie sheet and cover them loosely with lightly oiled plastic wrap, and leave them to thaw and rise. You can also thaw them slowly in the refrigerator the night before you plan to bake them.

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
This bread is very good! Mine turned out just like the picture posted by Minibug Mama. It is incredibly easy to make, and so fast! I used non-alcohol beer- Kaliber, and the flavor is wonderful! As others have posted, it is a tad bit sweet, so next time I will reduce the brown sugar to 1/4 cup. I also put melted butter on it before and after it baked, and wrapped it in plastic after taking it out of the oven. (Thanks Lori66). I will be making this again and again!

Tortellini Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
This soup is very flavorful! I added extra broth extra zucchini, and extra tortellini, and it came out more of a stew because of it, but that was a good thing, as it was my main dish. It was so yummy! I will surely be making it again and again, as a stew AND a soup!

Fairy Food

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
This recipe didn't turn out at all for me. I followed all of the directions, and used a candy thermometer, and it still burned! That being said, and since it could have still been my mistake, and the fact that it makes a great science experiment for the kids to watch, I give it 3 1/2 stars. Who knows, I may even try it again sometime. Next time I will also make sure the baking soda is SIFTED. (Have you ever bit into a bit of unsifted baking soda? I would not recommend it.) Overall: Good concept, cool food science, fun to watch, worth a try just for that.
