Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
WOW! I used 1 1/4 c. real pumpkin and 1 c. raw sugar + 1/2 c. brown sugar to get a richer flavor. Did not need the icing, though I am sure that's delicious. Would love to try these with pecans or walnuts! I will DEFINITELY make again!!!

Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
Didn't have any eggs on hand, so this recipe saved the day. Made *exactly* as directed, but they turned out rather oily. Taste was okay but noticably not your "usual" brownie. I probably won't repeat these--unless I find myself eggless again:)

Strawberry Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
DELICIOUS. Hopped online to find a good way to use my farmer's market strawberries for breakfast. Glad I looked no further! I can't help but fiddle... so I subbed half whole wheat flour, used Lactaid instead of buttermilk, sprinkled in some cinnamon + nutmeg and added chopped walnuts. Baked 20 mins= turned out scrumptious. Think I'll go grab one now...

Peanut Butter Heaven

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
It pains me to say it, but this wasn't the slice of Heaven I had hoped for. I should've heeded other reviewers' suggestions to cut the cookie base ingredients in half--as written, the base winds up about 3 inches thick! Be prepared to add AT LEAST 10 minutes extra to cooking time. There are some other peanutty recipes I'm looking forward to trying from this site- I won't be making this again.

Spring Lime Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
Wish I could give this 5+ stars! Made recipe exactly as instructed, and I was surprised by the super-soft, airy texture of these citrusy delights. One suggestion: be sure to chill dough before baking! I was intially skeptical of the white-sugar dissolving in the lime juice, but it gels together in a nice sticky glaze. To prevent sticking together, I topped them off with powdered sugar. Next time I will probably add a wee bit more lime juice as I love extra tang. These are DEFINITELY keepers!

Thai Banana Salsa with King Prawns

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
I was looking for something outside the usual meat'n taters. This was an unexpected spicy/tangy taste kaleidoscope! Didn't have any fish sauce so I used soy instead-- worked great! Also subbed the red pepper with red pepper flakes, as it's what I had on hand. And finally, subbed with queen-sized shrip instead of king prawns. One thing I wasn't sure about was whether the dish should be served warm or cold. Guess I'll have to taste test both! I will definitely make this interesting dish again. (Gave it a 4 since I didn't follow the exact directions.)

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2008
Just made these, and I've already eaten two before they had the chance to cool! Mmm! Made the recipe as directed, except for subbing 1/2 whole wheat flour and adding parsley for color. (I love recipes where I get to use my bread machine- such a time saver!) Since the "oven or stovetop" question seems unresolved, I baked four and cooked the other four (no oil) in a nonstick pan. The verdict: more puffed up using the bake method, BUT the pan method makes a more aethetically pleasing pita. I even tossed the baked ones into the frying pan for a few seconds just to give them some nice dark brown spots. Next time I will add a pinch more salt and maybe some onion powder, as they're sort of bland. Definitely a keeper, though!

Cinnamon Sweet Potato Chips

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
Had some leftover uncooked sweet potatoes and wanted to try something new with them. Sliced them extra thin as other reviewers have suggested-- worked great! I would just make sure they're all evenly thin. I didn't brush on the toppings, just sprinkled them over the top, and that worked fine. So easy to make and smelled tantalicious while baking! Highly recommended:)

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
This recipe doesn't need another rave review, but I wanted to add to how great it was. As mornings are pretty busy, I completed the recipe up until the second rise. Instead of baking right away, I covered it and stuck it in the fridge overnight. Next day, I let the rolls rise to size then stuck them in the oven to bake. Topped with the delicious icing = AMAZING! edit: After having made these several times since my last review, I wanted to add what others have mentioned. The cinn/brown sugar mixture works best when first blended with the butter, THEN spread over the rolled-out dough with a spatula or spoon. This provides for a much more evenly dispersed filling.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
Delicious! These have turned out great every time-- a real hit with my German co-workers, who had never eaten anything like this before. They were all asking for the recipe!

Best Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Easy, basic peanut sauce! Added a dash of ginger, garlic powder and chili powder... and of course, the essential cilantro. DELICIOUS! Thank you!

Cream Of Ginger Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Despite this recipe's bad reviews, I wanted to try it for myself as I've been looking for a delicious carrot-ginger soup. Alas, the soup ended up having a cake batter texture and taste. I thought it might taste better as a chilled soup, but I was wrong: the ingredients just don't mesh well together. I had to throw it away.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
EXCELLENT! There's no canned pumpkin here in Germany so I boiled down a real pumpkin to get the necessary amount of pumpking, then split the batter between a large bread pan and bundt cake pan. Both turned out great, though cooking time was about half an hour longer than the original recipe. Since pumpkin isn't generally associated with "sweets" here, my co-workers gathered around all skeptical-- but once they got a taste of the cream-cheese-drizzled treat, even THEY were asking for the recipe!
