Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
This recipe was easy, and very yummy. I used butter flavored vege. shortening, instead of the butter. I cut the salt to 1/2 teaspoon, upped the chocolate chips to 1 1/2 cups, and added 1/4 teaspoon baking powder. I mixed the dough by traditional bowl and spoon method (not in a mixer) and let the dough chill for the time it took to preheat the oven (about 10 minutes). I baked them on ungreased fiberglass baking mats.I had no problem with the cookies spreading. I'll make these again.

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
First off, DO NOT substitute margarine for the butter! The water content in most margarines will not work in this recipe. Also, I had to microwave for about 3 minutes after I added the sugar to get it fully combined with the butter. I also used 40 crackers and had plenty of topping. (They were also salted because it's what I had.) This candy is the bomb! It was easy and so yummy I can't stay out of it.

BAKER'S® ONE BOWL Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
These could not be easier to make or more delicious to eat. They keep extremely well in a plastic bag. Sometimes, when I'm feeling fancy, I dunk the bottoms in melted chocolate and cool on waxed paper. They are elegant enough to serve at a dinner party.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
Great when you want something chocolate and fast. I added a dash of salt before cooking to help bring out flavors. I also added 1 T butter along with the vanilla after it was cooked to make it a little fuller tasting. Super easy.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This is the cookie I've been looking for all of my life! Crispy, chewy, chocolatey goodness. I added the 1/2 tsp of cream of tarter and they did crackle on top perfectly, but I've not made it without that addition so I can't say as if it made a difference. I make a ton of cookies and my family was simply blown away by these. You really are missing out if you haven't tried these.

Rainbow Clown Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
Very simple to make. I used the Wilton gel colors in the small jars and got the vivid colors I wanted. I didn't swirl the colors, but plopped them in one spoonful at a time as stated in the recipe. I really don't know why this wouldn't work just following the directions on the cake package and not taking the time to whip the egg whites and just leaving in the yolks.

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Our's came out a little thick but I think adding a bit more lemon juice would have done the trick. It could not have been easier to make!

Traditional Gyro Meat

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
This was easy to make and also tastes very close to what I get at the restaurant. I upped the salt to a teaspoon, though, as I thought 1/4 tsp would have left the meat bland. Mine took longer to cook than the directions stated. I found that a paper towel was an excellent way to squeeze the water from the onions. The onions came right out and did not stick to the paper towel and then I only had to throw the paper towel away for easy clean-up. The next time I make this meat, I'll save the juice that bakes off and cover the meat with it in the fridge to keep it moist. Live and learn!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
I can't get enough of this soup! I tweaked it by leaving out the bacon and using kale instead of spinach (the famous restaurant uses kale). I also added 1 teaspoon of fennel as I think that it is crucial to the flavor of the soup. My Italian sausage was hot enough without the added red pepper, also. Still, I think this recipe is pretty forgiving and you can add or subtract to your taste. This was just what I was looking for to start me on my way to my new favorite soup. I also loved how quickly everything cooked.

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
Couldn't believe how well this worked and how fabulous it tasted! I used Splenda and it came out perfect. I made the strawberry and even my kids (who don't like strawberry ice cream) gobbled it up.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
I didn't have any butter so I substituted butter-flavor shortening and had to really whisk it, as it does not melt as fast as chocolate...but it turned out great! I also made this in the microwave as others suggested. This glaze set up perfectly...not too hard, not too soft. You have to work pretty fast because it will set up quickly, however. I made a chocolate peanut butter cake and I got tons of compliments on the glaze itself. The color of your glaze will be the color of the chocolate that you use. I did "work" the glaze onto the cake and so it was not super-shiny but it was still beautiful. This recipe is a winner and a great substitute when you haven't any whipping cream to make a ganache.

Good recipe. I have made this with the granola and then also made it subbing oats for the granola when I was out and it was good either way.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
If I could give it more stars, I would. This was so easy and also so fabulous! I served it on toasted wheat rolls with monterey jack cheese and put the pepperoncinis on the sandwich as well. My hubby gave it two thumbs way up and my kids loved this as well. Would make a great/easy dish to serve to guests at a casual get together.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
This recipe gets 5 stars because it really is easy. They are also quite yummy. I didn't have almonds so I used pecans and I also added a half of a cup of bran to up the fiber a bit. They are super chocolatey. I took someone's suggestion and put my can of milk in a bowl of hot water while I assembled the rest of the ingredients. It was much easier to pour and incorporate. I will make these again!

April's Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I needed something last minute to take to a party. I had everything this called for so I mixed it all in the food processor. I did alter it a tiny bit. Since the recipe didn't specify what size of a jar for the roasted red peppers, I used about 1/2 cup. One of my blocks of cheese was 1/3 less fat. Also, I left out the worcestershire because I was in too big of a hurry to find it in my cubbard. I also threw in a teaspoon of dried parsley (more for look than flavor). The consistency of mine came out to be a very spreadable cheese that wouldn't hold shape so I just served it in a pretty dish. Everyone loved it! I will definitely make this again. It was delicious.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
This has the consistency and flavor that cream cheese frosting should have. I make this for my awesome carrot cake and it is enough to frost 3 layers, top, and sides, as well as adding a bit of decoration. Simply the best recipe out there!
