Delicious Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
Wow! I found this recipe after reviewing grandmas apple dumplings with my changes and found this recipe followed my way almost exactly! Grandmas used 2 sticks butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar which I lowered to 1 stick butter and 1 cup sugar! Perfect! I used ginger ale as that was on hand, but will do the Dew next! Use less butter too! (and way more cinnamon!) Thanks!

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
If I had made this as written I'd have given 2 stars. It really sounded too sweet and rich for how I like dessert. I winged it by using 4 big apples in 1/4 pieces, 1 stick of butter, and only 1 cup of sugar-1/2 brown and 1/2 white, and the whole 12 oz of ginger ale (what I had). I added lemon juice and cinnamon to the apple pieces. I worried about screwing it up, and did stir back in the thick sugar coating on the top of the dumplings into the sauce, but it was absolutely perfect! The crescent triangles (used low fat) didn't cover the apple quarters but was just the right amount of dough. It wasn't syrupy, but a good covering of sweet sticky sauce. I also wouldn't call it "gummy" or soggy as did others. They were quite reminiscent of my grandmothers homemade dumplings, which were whole cored apples in pie dough. I'm sure this recipe is great made as it was, it simply would have been to rich and calories laden for me to make again. With the proportions listed I'll make it often! Thank you!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2013
This is the basic recipe for pizza dough! When I first tried it I felt duped. This is foccacia bread I said! Well, yeah. Same recipe! The second time I left it rise, then used a bigger sheet pan, and it was--the typical chewy somewhat strechy pizza dough you'd call hand tossed. That's what great about this recipe. You can make it in the time it takes to chop up the veggies, or wait for the rise time. Either way it's the recipe I'll always use. Better homemade pizza than take out anyday! And yes, like every bread recipe the amount of flour is going to vary. Add herbs and garlic if you feel it's too "bland", like, pizza dough is!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
I used sweetened vanilla almond milk, and they came out great! I used to add some sugar when I used dairy milk in biscuits, and sweetened soymilk or almond makes them just right. I'd use plain soymilk, or add a teaspoon of lemon to sub for buttermilk, if wanting a savory one. Dismiss all the bad reviews. This is the basic recipe-just look compare to all the others. The only difference would be in the amount of milk, and as this recipe states "Gradually stir in milk until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl." That means you don't have to use it all. Amounts for liquid will vary. Just don't over work the dough, stir till just combined. If you let it set for a while, as others have mentioned, the baking powder will have longer to rise.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
Perfect! Now I need more apples to make this again- I'd love to preserve these! I found I had no cinnamon, but I used 1/4 teaspoon each of cloves, nutmeg, and 1/2 teaspoon of ginger and allspice, which I like even better! I'll just add cinnamon to those when I get some! So much better than pie, great on pancakes.

Vegan Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
These really are worth 5 stars for pancakes in general. To ElizzleM-about 50% of processed sugar in America is processed through bone char-look up brands that aren't-such as Pioneer. I do like to use soymilk for water adding about 1 teaspoon lemon or vinegar to it to give it a "buttermilk" quality.

Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
You need to mix all ingrediants in the pan before you start heating it to prevent lumps. This goes with all cornstarch pudding. No need to mix cornstarch with water first- I didn't even add the water, just wisk everything with the cold soymilk. I used chocolate soymilk, and 2T. cocoa, and agave nectar instead of sugar.

Yummy Vegan Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
Egg replacer is just another starch-usually potato. You could just use 5 T. cornstarch total, instead. You wouldn't put a starch in hot liquid, thats why it's coming out lumpy-wisk the starch in cold milk or creamer. I used chocolate soy milk, and 3 T. cocoa, and agave syrup instead of sugar.

Vegan Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
This is not as complecated as it seems! Read it through, it's very well written> My family really loved this. One reviewer complained about the potatoes- they're just mashed potatoes with 1 T. miso added. If you don't like miso, don't use it! I did use soymilk instead of water. I also used Better than Boullion no chicken base for where it called for gravy, or boullion, and left out bbq sauce (my preference). You could use all kinds of different veggies. I used a frozen mix of peas, carrots and corn, chopped spinach, onion, and peppers.

Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
This was great! Not only for popcorn-I had a big bag of puffed spelt, like puffed wheat, I tried it with. I didn't do the bag, just poured it over the spelt in a big glass bowl, then micro'd again 1 min., stirred, and another min. Poured out on wax paper to dry. very good, I'd do this with other plain cereals too.

Vickie's Beer Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
I'm not a beer drinker, but finding a lone bottle from the holidays made me think of trying this. Unbelievable Good! The beer was an apple cider ale, I can't imagine what reg. beer would be like, but this one was soooo good. I used about 6 T sugar, should've used a bit of cinnamon too! For the reviews about it being bland- they picked out the beer! Definitly will be buying beer now. I imagine Blue Moon--I think orangy-would be good. Super easy. P.S. It does rise a good bit, remember that with the butter top, mine started about 1 inch from the top of pan and just barely missed having the butter go over.

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
Nope. The difference in this and my recipe is 1/2 cup more flour, mine bakes at 350, and the offensive baking powder. I've stuck to my recipe for so long I got sucked in by the title. The baking powder changed the texture to a thick, cake-like, non chewy, just "okay" cookie. The low heat needed to bake for about 20 minutes, and still just done. My cookies are even better the next day, in a ziploc with bread-these were drier, and tasted blander.

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
If you use canned garbanzos you should check if salt is added. I prefer to cook the dryed ones. I agree on adding the lemon (everything really) slowly and tasting- I prefer less, but it's all taste. I probably added 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin. Good recipe.

Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
Sooooo good!! I had devils food mix and vanilla instant pudding. I think chocolate pudding might have put it over the edge (for me). I used one cup of semi-sweet choc. chips, I think I'll leave them out next time-or use a grated high quality chocolate. There will definitly be a next time! Can't wait to try other combinations of pudding/cake mix. I almost went with a similiar recipe from this site that calls for one cup oil. I'm glad I chose this one. Very moist, easy, delicious!
