Apple Cinnamon White Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2014
The lack of flavor is so disappointing. Plus, mine baked for 1 hr and 10 minutes (at 30 it was still jiggly). Might be better suited to a 9x9 pan than a loaf pan.

Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Very, very wet pancakes...could be because I sift my flour, but I ended up adding more than the recipe called for, and the pancakes were still gooey in the center of many of them. Could be because I also oven-cooked my sweet potatoes and not in the microwave, so they had more moisture?

Greek Yogurt Coleslaw

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
I made this with freshly grated cabbage and carrot mix and it was really good. I did approximate measurements it and make 1/4 of the recipe. It was still pretty 'wet' and I prefer my cole slaw with not so much dressing, but the flavor was really good. As a bonus, you don't use as much mayo. An excellent side to go with BBQ chicken.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
The only substition I made was using butter for the canola oil, as I did not have any oil other than some strong tasting olive oil. These waffles had an OK flavor, but were not crisp, nor light. They were heavy and very moist/dense. Not a fan. I gave them three stars as it may have been my fault for using butter, but I've **never** had an issue with it before and I cook an awful lot. Made these again, this time soaking the flour the night before (with a tbsp of ACV for acidity), and while this time they cam out light, they were still very moist and soggy, did not crisp up at all. Maybe it's my waffle maker? They do however, taste better when the flour is soaked.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
I made these exactly as written with the exception that I used butter, not margarine (just didn't have any). These were just lovely. I pressed them down pretty flat as suggested by other reviews, and they were slightly crispy on the edges, soft and chewy in the middle. A perfect light flavor. My kids DEVOURED these and I sent a few dozen into work with my hubby. Those were gone in minutes. A truly GREAT recipe.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
Perfect, don't change a thing! Mine came out all sorts of wonky shaped because I can't roll a circle, and they still puffed up quite nicely (about 8 out of 10). I'm very impressed with myself!! Good bread taste too, perfect background for fillings!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Excellent cookie!!! Since I don't use shortening or margarine, I used one stick of butter and 1/4 cup of olive oil plus 1/4 cup of applesauce. I also did not have quick oats, and used regular rolled oats with no problem. From previous suggestions, I upped the oats to 1.5 cups as well, plus added in some chocolate chips. My kids went crazy for these cookies. Next time I'm adding flax.

Oatmeal and Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
These are very, very good. Have a very nice apples with cinnamon flavor. I added 3 tbsp of ground flax (I add it to everything) and they came out wonderful. I did add an extra tsp of baking powder, but I like mine fluffy :) I plan on trying to sub in other veggies/fruits for the applesauce as this recipe seems very easy to switch around. I love these and my kids did too!! They also freeze well.

Honey Oatmeal Bread II

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
This bread is awesome. I made it tonight and ended up using almost 6 cups of flour!!! However, itmade two perfect loaves, so I'm not complaining. I am going to try adding in some ground flax, and maybe subbing in WW flour for the white (I used all purpose, not bread flour). Plus, I baked it for almost an hour (internal temp of 190 via a thermometer, rose to 202 deg. after removing). This is great, just needs a little rewriting :)

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
This is a very good pancake, albeit somewhat plain. I made this according to the original recipe the first time. The second time I subbed in 1/2 c oat flour and added 3 tbs of ground flax, and it had more chewiness and a pleasant oaty flavor to it. I did not give it 5 stars as I think it was somewhat plain. This is a perfect recipe for experimenting on with additions and substitutions though!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
Very easy and turns out very good. Even with variations, like adding ground flax or subbing in some whole grain flour it still turns out great.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
Not only is the perfect muffin recipe, it is very well suited to countless additions and substitutions. I caution everyone: DO NOT OVERMIX!! My variation includes adding 1.2 cup of ground flax, subbing in 1/2 c of oat flour, decreasing white sugar to 1/2 c and omitting the blueberries. This makes it taste almost exactly like Drakes Coffee Cakes, oddly enough. Oh, and these are better the next day too!!!

Restaurant-Style Prime Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
Like most of the time I use allrecipes, I use a variety of techniques from several recipes. Some parts of this recipe are crucial to making an excellent, fool proof prime rib. First is letting the meat come to room temperature (although I personally would not let it sit for 3 horus). Second is using the flour and spice mixture after patting it dry. Third is searing the roast in a very hot oven (I did 500 degrees for 15 minutes). I then turned my heat down to 350 for 15-20 minutes a lb. I did a 7 lb roast that turned out perfectly. There was barely any juice in the pan, which means it all stayed in the roast. A very helpful recipe, which is why I gave it 5 stars although I did not follow it to the letter.

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
This is seriously the best and easiest whole recipe EVER!!! First attempt fell short, I realize (like many)it was becuase my machine overcooked the loaf PLUS it does require a bit more rising time. Last 2 loaves I proofed yeast in a cup and added to the dry ingredients and kneaded it in the machine. I let it rise in a warm bowl, punch/kneaded and let rise again. baked at 375 for about 40 min and it was perfection. I used 4.5 tbs of ground flax instead of the shortening, decreased honey t0 1/4 cup and added 4 tsp. of vital wheat gluten. Unreal how good this is. If your loaf did not turn out well try the above suggestions and you will NOT be disappointed.
