Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2014
Wonderful crust, a regular favorite of ours that is very simple and fast to make and comes out great with regular flour.

Banana Bread V

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
This really is the best banana bread I've ever had. I also used half brown sugar as suggested (I mix my own with white sugar + molasses), and I used half butter, half virgin coconut oil. It was even great without nuts, though I would've enjoyed some walnuts and/or pecans in this if I had them! What a great way to use up those bananas that keep getting old before I eat 'em. :)

Happy Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
Chicken came out somewhat tough and took a lot longer to cook than stated. It took probably 2 hours or so to get the proper 180 degree reading. I'm wondering if over stuffing it with lemons and garlic prohibited it from cooking faster. I think I'd rather put that stuff around the chicken next time. The other recipe I made on this site with butter basting the chicken came out much better.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
This came out pretty good with the butter basting, as I wanted to make just the basic chicken without the vegetables in the roasting pan this time. I needed to increase the cooking time to 1.5 hours though, which seems more standard to me than the 1 hour 15 minutes it stated. My thermometer read 170 degrees at 1 hour 15 minutes. I would also add to the instructions to baste one more time just before serving because the meat did get a little dry sitting out for the 30 minutes to rest, but then tasted really good when i put some pan drippings on it later. I didn't use celery because I didn't have any, and I used half a stick of butter which would be about 1/4 cup instead of the 1/2, which made adequate juice and browning. I also basted mine a few times during cooking because cooking without a cover can dry it out.

Easy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I was looking for an easier version of oatmeal cookies and found this recipe. No butter to cream or mixer/beater to use (although I did have to use the chopper for walnuts). I was pleased with the results, but since I omitted the raisins/water mixture, I found I needed to add maybe 1/4 cup or less of water because the batter was a bit crumbly to make drop cookies.

Cinnamon Sugar Butter Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
I had high hopes for these, but mine came out flat and greasy. This happened with my last butter cookie recipe. The only thing I can think of is to chill the dough next time and the cookie sheets. I did this with a plain butter cookie recipe some time ago, and these came out thick (and smaller in diameter), though more hard. But they reminded more of shortbread. The dough for these cookies was very droopy when rolling them into balls. They puffed in the oven, but then soon deflated.

Chili I

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
This chili was very easy to make over the stove in 30 minutes. I did not have fresh onions, so I omitted this ingredient, but I did use Mrs. Dash and there are also onions in the Ragu sauce that I used instead of the canned tomatoes. I added Indian meat masala instead of chili powder. Used ground turkey. Served it with white rice. This came out great and I was very pleased!

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
I liked the ingredients for this recipe, but unfortunately they don't taste good after they've cooled down because they are not soft anymore, and eating them warm tastes better, more like banana bread.

Cake Mix Cookies VII

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
I like that these were so easy to make. No mixer required, which has given me a break from creaming butter and sugar. However, they do have a bit of a weird taste being they are from cake mix. By weird I mean something along the lines of playdough comes to mind. I used yellow cake mix, so perhaps a different flavor might taste better.

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
I like that these came out crispy and chewy, but they are a little too greasy with two sticks of butter. When you bite into these chewy cookies, all the greasy butter comes out. It seems a lot of cookies need this amount of butter though. I think I'll go back to regular butter cookies since I like the texture of those better if I have to use all that butter.

Frozen Banana Treats

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
I used a box of baker's semisweet chocolate squares (6), which I melted in the microwave. I didn't have popsicle sticks, so I used some skinny chopsticks I had on hand :) Just remember to cut the ends of the banana first, or it will split, and I definitely was not trying to make banana splits :) (Anyway, I ate this mistake with the leftover chocolate, hehe). Also, I dipped mine in finely chopped pecans instead of the cereal. For freezing, I placed them on a cookie sheet that had a sheet of parchment paper.
