Robbi's M&M Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
These were great, just what I was looking for in an M&M cookie. I used half butter and half margarine, and they came out a little flat, but still chewy and tasty.

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
This is incredibly delicious! I made it for Christmas brunch, following the recipe exactly, and it came out great. I flipped the bread just before pouring over the syrup and baking, and left it alone while baking. The only change I made was to bake it a bit longer than recommended, so that it was drier. My mom would have loved to have it more like bread pudding, and my sister thought it was too wet, but they both thought it was good. You just have to watch it in the oven and let it bake to your desired consistency- without burning!. I made it again and this time decreased the half and half to one cup, with no noticable change in taste, but it was a bit drier. It's a huge recipe for two people, and very filling, so I'd save it for company. Now I'm looking for excuses to have people over for brunch!

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
This was delicious. Following other reviewers suggestions, I used half all-purpose flour (bleached) and half bread machine flour. The first time I decreased the salt to 1 tsp, but I also made it with the 1&1/2 tsp the recipe called for and it wasn't salty at all. My only caution is read up on how to "shape loaves" if you've never made bread without the bread machine before. My first attempts were kind of ugly- but still delicious- because I didn't know a thing about that step. I'll use this recipe again and again, thanks!

Luscious Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
This is exactly the basic, simple, delicious vanilla frosting I remembered from my childhood and had trouble re-creating. Very sweet, goes well with chocolate cake and sugar cookies.

Pride Of Iowa Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
These cookies may look plain (no chips or chunks) but they are delicious! The coconut and walnut work well together, and the oatmeal makes them chewy and yummy. (I only baked mine until they were just turning golden, not the full time.) A new favorite! Thanks for the recipe.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
I'm a box mix kinda gal- I actually prefer them to home-made cakes which I think are always either dry or too heavy. Not this cake!! It is DELICIOUS, perfectly moist, and really not too hard to make, as long as you're careful not to let it fall. Especially yummy with buttercream icing. I will be making this again and again.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
Delicious, quick and easy with the breadmaker. And I'm glad I finally found a bread-maker bread recipe that doesn't need to have dry milk powder added. Who keeps that on hand?

Gingerbread Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
This recipe was ok- not the best. I also had to add a lot more flour to get a dough that wouldn't stick to everything it touched- and then it was still difficult to roll them out without having the shapes stretch in every direction when moved from the table to the cookie sheet. The spices were adequate, but I wish they would have been sweeter. Icing helps a bit. They would probably make a great gingerbread house, however, because the finished product was very solid and smooth.

White Chocolate, Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
Amazing! I am completely done with trying to make those stupid chocolate crinkle (rock) cookies. These are so much easier and better tasting. I only baked them for eight minutes (4 top, 4 bottom rack) and they came out chewy and weren't too flat. For a festive touch, I used Nestle's red and green swirl white chocolate chips. I'll be adding these to my list of Christmas cookies to bake every year- and frequently in between! Thanks so much for the recipe.

Holiday Cranberry-Pomegranate Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
I made this for Thanksgiving dinner, and I'm sorry to say it wasn't very well received. The basic cranberry sauce is great, but the spices were too much. My husband and I tasted it right after cooking, and it was fine, so perhaps I left the cinnamon sticks in too long? (It was about 24 hours total to serving time.) But the next day it was definitely different, and it tasted like the cloves were too strong. I wanted to try using pomegranates in a cranberry sauce, and this was the only recipe I found, but they didn't add much in the end because the cranberry/clove taste was too strong. (Plus everyone that ate it said "Oh no, what is so crunchy in here? Are you supposed to eat that?" but that's not the recipe's fault they don't know what a pomegranate is.) My suggestiong would be to skip the poms all together and cut back the spices, and you've got a great sauce that I might try again.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
I am eating this right now and it is sweet, moist, and delicious! (Even though I only had a 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg left. Adding a tiny bit of extra cinnamon isn't the same, but it's not bad.) For a two-loaf recipe I used a whole cup of chocolate chips instead of the 1/3 cup called for. Yummy.

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
This was my first attempt at a vegetable soup/stew, and it turned out great! I did modify the recipe a bit, by using beef broth, (~5-6 cups) omitting the sugar, and tossing everything in the crock pot on high, which made it super easy. I also only used about a pound of cut-up stew meat, tossed with flour, and that was plenty. I went out Christmas shopping, and five hours later, dinner was ready! It was delicious with a loaf of honey oat bread from Panera. The only problem is there's only two of us, and it made a whole crock pot full, so we had plenty of leftovers.
