Herb Quick Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
After reading all of the reviews, I expected to be disappointed with this bread, but I was not at all. It was moist and dense and held its shape well. I did make a few minor changes, but none that would cause major changes in the bread's consistency. Instead of the herbs listed, I used what I had in my garden; thyme, sage, oregano, and basil, plus some dry rosemary. I did add a pinch more of salt after tasting the dough. I also substituted one cup of the flour for whole wheat flour and grated parmesan cheese on the top. I used the bread as a substitute for corn bread or rice with my chili. Everyone enjoyed it, and I will probably make it again.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
This was the best roll out cookie recipe I have ever used! I will never use store bought dough after making these. One batch made over 6 dozen cookies plus about 2 dozen mini cookies. I could feel the difference in the dough the moment I started to roll it out-- it rolled out smoothly with no crumbling or separating. The cookies did not spread in the oven, ruining the shape of the cutouts. I am extremely impressed!

Mocha Coffee

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
I made this for my husband. I don't really like coffee much, but he does and needed some extra energy for long shifts he was working. This recipe was nice because I could make it easily for him instead of spending money on a Starbucks Frappaccino or something. I started with the recipe as is, but he thought it needed more sugar and less cocoa. The second time I made it I tripled the recipe, but added less cocoa, more of everything else, and some vanilla. I also added a pinch of salt. As someone who doesn't like coffee AT ALL, I actually sat down and ENJOYED drinking a hot cup of this. My husband liked it too, but he added ice to his. I'm still looking for something more to make it perfect for him, but I thought this was really good.

Indian Chai Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I actually had just tried making something similar to this about 5 minutes before I read this recipe. I used a Lipton Spiced Chai tea bag, Swiss Miss Pick Me Up Hot Chocolate mix (has extra caffeine) and then added some ginger and freshly grated nutmeg then stirred it with a cinnamon stick. Delicious.

Easy Cheesy Beer Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
I really enjoyed this soup, but my husband didn't. I substituted bacon with sausage and next time I make it I will add potatoes- it really needed potatoes.
