The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
These are actually really good, and take all of 5 minutes to put together! Bakes up wonderfully into a soft, light cookie.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
an excellent pie! i left out the celery, added two boiled potatoes and a can of button mushrooms. and i would double up on the seasoning next time as it was a tad bland for me.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
This cake came out really moist and soft! One of the better light chocolate cake recipes around. Be sure to get rid of any lumps in the batter before baking.

Jumbo Fluffy Walnut Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
I didn't have any apples so I replaced them with 2 bananas, used margarine instead of butter, and cut the sugar to 1 cup. I didn't make the topping and it still came out great, it was actually fluffy and light. I didn't grease my non-stick muffin tin and the muffins came out easily.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
THESE ARE DELICIOUS! however the dough is not the easiest to handle. the dough thaws fast, even after chilling overnight, and becomes soft and slightly sticky. these cookies taste great on their own, but do reduce the sugar if you're icing them, otherwise they become too sweet.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
shelling and peeling the pistachios was almost a torture! i will make this again only if i can get my hands on ready-shelled pistachios. looks very pretty for Christmas.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
delicious! be sure to use ripe avocados (purplish- black and slightly soft), just slice and twist it in half to pit, and scoop out the flesh. i dump everything into the blender and pulse until i get the consistency i want. great with tortilla chips or bread.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
these are delicious! loved the spices. it keeps getting more moist as it sits though. i prefer a crispier cookie. nevertheless, with it's wonderful flavor, this is easily a five star cookie.

Holiday Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
Wonderful flavor- but the buttery taste was a bit too much for me as I'm not a huge fan of butter. I will add more flour next time. I sprinkled more sugar on top before baking to make it sweeter and prettier. Tip: Bake the shortbread for 5 min, then take out to prick the holes with a fork. The butter would have melted and held the dough together, making pricking the dough much easier. I found it impossible to prick the shortbread before baking without it crumbling to pieces.

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
SO DELICIOUS! Hands down the best pie I have ever made/ tasted! My only qualm is that the crumble topping does not stay crisp, after a few hours it absorbs moisture and becomes more chewy. Changes: 1)used half white/ half brown sugar 2)added 2 tbsp flour and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to apple-coating mixture. I used a 9.5" pie dish, so I had to increase the crumble topping by half. Baked for 50 min. and left it in the turned-off oven for a while as I had gone out of the house while it baked. Came out beautiful and lightly browned on top. I used Basic Flaky Pie Crust for the bottom crust, added 1 tbsp white sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla to the recipe. Thank you, Penny! This recipe is gold!

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
Very good recipe for satisfying tiramisu cravings. If you are using the substitute for mascarpone cheese, be sure to whip/ blend/ strain mixture and get a very smooth consistency, it won't be good to have gritty bits of curdled eggs or milk in your tiramisu. Brew the coffee very strong and spoon mixture generously over the ladyfingers. I used vanilla wafers instead of lady fingers and they worked just as well. Serve it in individual wine glasses, looks very pretty, and less messy too.

Angel Food Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
This cake has way too much cream of tartar in it. It made the cake taste sour and masked its sweetness. Also stuck to the pan really badly and I had to take it out in pieces and frost the pieces in a bowl.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
WOW! this bread is sooo delicious and moist! and I don't even like pumpkin!! My 7x3 loaf was done in 60 min. Changes made: I doubled the spices, added 2 tsp of vanilla, subbed 1/4 of the oil for applesauce, sifted the flour (habit), used only 2 cups of sugar, added 1 cup raisins, 1 cup walnuts and a handful of choc chips. I hesitated before adding the choc. chips as I couldn't imagine how choc. chips could go into pumpkin bread. But after reading so many reviews that stated adding the chips, I decided to go ahead and add them. AND BOY AM I GLAD I DID!! the choc chips go sooo well with the pumpkin bread, it beats the walnuts and raisins!! DO TRY adding choc. chips, you're missing out if you don't!!

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
I used margarine because i ran out of butter, and doubled the ginger because i like a spicier cookie. The cookie was very light, and crispy at the edge, but soft, almost cakelike inside. Mine didn't have a crackled top.. might have been the margarine. I was looking for a gingersnap that is crunchy all over.. but this recipe gets five stars still for it's wonderful flavour and texture. *I tried flattening and baking the cookies for a further 5 mins, and they became crispy all the way through. Just what I was looking for! The crispier the cookie, the less strong the ginger flavor, though.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
This cookie was so soft for an oatmeal cookie, it really surprised me! It just crumbles in your mouth. I followed the recipe, but used instant oats instead of quick cooking. I didn't chill the dough, just let it sit for 15 mins and it'll be easy to handle. I didn't grease my cookie sheets either, and the cookies slid off easily still. ADDING RAISINS IS A MUST! The sweetness and juiciness of raisins complement this cookie perfectly!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
these were scrumptious! i tripled the cinnamon sugar coating, and used margarine because i didn't have any butter or shortening. i baked the first batch at 375F for 10 min, they came out with a very light, cake like texture. the 2nd batch i baked at 400F for 8 min, the edges were crisper and centers were a little denser than cakelike, more chewy than fluffy. bake them at 400F for 10 min and they come out more crisp and less chewy. :) alter the baking temp/ time to your liking!
