Double Fudge Kahlua Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
These are fabulous by simply following the recipe! They are rich, but not too chocolatey gooey brownie. Be very careful not to overbake--mine were ready right at 25 minutes. The only thing I had to change was to decrease the amount of powdered sugar in the frosting--2 c. would have made a VERY thick (probably unspreadable) frosting. I started out with about a cup and that ended up being the right amount. These could definitely handle a larger dose of Kahlua if you want to taste it.

Ghirardelli® Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Delicious and very chocolatey. They were terrific even after freezing the log of dough for 3 weeks--just a tad bit drier than original. DO NOT overcook or they get dry and crumbly (still delicious, though!)

Jim's Cheddar Onion Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
Was good, needs less onions or to use green onions. Used sharp cheddar cheese and that was really good. Needs to cook about 33 min on convection 325F. Is ok but not fasntastic, although its a good bread.

Waffle Cookies II

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
I gave it 5 stars with a few modifications. Substituted 1/4 cup more of cocoa for flour, added 1 tsp of cinnamon, and 1/4 cup of mini cinnamon chips. The 1.5 minute cooking time is right on if you set your waffle iron to medium heat.

Poppy Seed and Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I usually love bran muffins, but these were just dense and not very flavorful. I even added vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg to some of them and that didn't make them much better. These just aren't that great.

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Very dark chocolate--made with M&M's and semisweet chips and were SO decadent. Would also be good with chopped nuts either in the batter or on top.

Were perfect when made in jumbo muffin cups and with added cinnamon and doubled the syrup topping. Also subbed applesauce for oil. Were absolutely fantastic little cakes! Made about 14 jumbo muffins with 1 recipe. Nutrition: 355 cals per jumbo muffin.

Black Forest Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Not that great, especially considering how much time and effort it took. The kirch definitely gets stronger the longer you store it so be aware of that. I don't know how anyone would eat more than a bite or two of this at a time--it is SO rich!!

Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
I usually love muffins like this, but these were really not good at all. They looked and smelled wonderful, but they were pretty dense and tasted like straight wheat flour. I was quite disappointed.

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
Fantastic. Cut the sugar in brownies to 1/4 c and added vanilla as it seemed to be missing something when I tasted the batter. That did it! I also put slightly fewer choc chips in the cream cheese filling than called for (maybe 3/4 c?) but it was still plenty. These were just as delicious when made with splenda and reduced fat cream cheese!
