Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
I must admit, the recipe is a bit wonky for some reason. I measure everything very precise and I too had crumbly dough. I added another 1/4 of butter which fixed it. My butter was completely soft, so that wasn't the problem. My egg was on the small side so that could have been part of the trouble. But after adding the extra butter, the dough was soft and easy to work with. We rolled them into 1" balls and cooked them for 10 minutes. Turned out great. Excellent flavor! They are cooling right now, we will be frosting them soon!

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
This is my second loaf of bread in my new breadmaker. The first was a recipe from the manual that came out bland, tough and dense. This recipe makes an amazing white bread! I too added an extra 1/2 tsp salt and an extra tbsp of sugar. It rose within a half inch of the top of the breadmaker. The kids love it! Tastes like the homemade white bread I remember eating as a kid. I am going to try some substitutions such as applesauce in place of oil as one other reviewer did to cut down on calories. I think I will also try using honey instead of sugar too since it is better for you, and probably adding in some ww flour in place of half of the bread flour. But don't get me wrong, the recipe is awesome as it is. I just try to use healthier substitutions when I can. Thanks for posting!!

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
This is the best recipe for pumpkin pie. I have been using it for years. I always get asked what is in it, and it is the sweetened condensed milk that makes it so good. Can't go wrong with it. Better than the Libby's recipe ;)

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
This is incredible bread (more like coffee cake really)! I made mine in a bundt pan and it turned out amazing. I only had to cook it for about 30 minutes. I subbed the applesauce for the oil and was surprised how light and airy the texture was. Many times when using applesauce the texture gets rubbery, even when I am careful not to overstir. But not this time! My kids love it! I used turbinado (sugar in the raw) for the swirl mixture. I also used 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 turbinado sugar for the bread. (I very rarely use white sugar for anything). We ate ours about 10 minutes after it was out of the oven. This recipe is definitely a keeper!! I may try to sub in some splenda next time to cut down on the sugar and calories.
