Snickerdoodles III

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
This recipe needs help. I'm not understanding why it has many good reviews. I followed the recipe exactly and the dough was way too dry. I ended up adding an extra 1/4c of butter and the dough came together better. The cookies looked good coming out of the oven but the texture is just too dry. Also, you need to press these cookies down otherwise they will remain in ball shape because they don't spread. I won't be using this recipe again.

Popovers

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Followed this recipe to the T. They didn't pop and were dense, not eggy and light. They turned out like corn muffins minus the cornmeal. I would never try this recipe again.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
This pie was very watery and I followed the recipe to a T. I don't feel 3Tb flour is nearly enough. It's very sweet too. I'll not be using this recipe again.

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
Agreed. This is a great recipe. But you have add a few more ingredients to make them "THE BEST". I used the currents, but added ~1/2c raw almond slivers (that I then crunched in the palm of my hand), 1tsp Vanilla, 1/2tsp cinnamon, and I added about 3 more Tb sugar to the recipe. hey turned out fabulous, and when compared side by side to the original recipe, the taste is far better. They came out looking beautiful because of the egg/milk wash. Really, just barely mixing the flour & cream mixture is important. I only takes a few turns with a spoon. I gently formed them into balls and pressed them down as indicated, but next time I will form them into a thicker shape because the pressing made them turn out thinner than i wanted. GREAT RECIPE.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
1st, this recipe is AMAZING! I've used this recipe twice now. I made a bundt cake with it for Father's day and it was out of this world (home made fresh cherry topping drizzled over). I've never tasted a cake so moist! It kills me to have to use a boxed cake mix with it, but honestly it's the best chocolate cake I've ever had. I substituted a little milk & Hershey's chocolate syrup for the coffee. For this photo I submitted, I did a rectangular cake (white cavity cake on the bottom, dark chocolate on top),a layer of whipped cream frosting with fresh Raspberries, and a layer of homemade raspberry compote. I finished it off with a dark chocolate ganache, chopped hazlenuts, dark chocolate shavings, and a dusting of powdered sugar. I think the birthday girl will enjoy it!

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
These turned out fabulous. I actually prefer these to mashed potatoes for the holiday. I followed the recipe, and kinda of basted the potatoes with the vinegar. Excellent recipe.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
Excellent! These really puffed up just like bakery/store muffins. I substituted lightly mashed apricots for the banana, and added walnuts. These we're great but I do plan on further experimentation with this recipe. The crumb topping is a nice touch, but not necessary. Especially with chunks of fresh fruit.

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
So it tasted okay, the flavor was there. But the texture was poor. I made a sponge with the yeast, added it to the flour mixture (half whole-wheat, half bread flour), with the honey and salt. Hand kneaded for 15mins until gluten developed. It rose perfectly and doubled in 1.5hrs. I tossed to stretch and placed it in the pan. It stretched perfectly, nice and thin, great gluten strands. It rose again for 45mins, then I topped and placed it in the oven. Once baked no more rising occurred, dough was slightly dense and chewy. I will try a different recipe next time.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

I used half Whole Wheat Flour/ Half All-purpose, Whole multi-grain oatmeal, organic currants, and that organic peanut butter that you grind yourself at the store. These turned out fantastic, thanks for the fabulous recipe!

Sfincione Siciliano Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
Amazing,Amazing,Amazing! Best Recipe I've ever tried for Pizza. This is a great recipe for those who like a thick, soft, spongy dough. I followed the recipe for the dough (refridgerated 24hrs though), and then made my own variety of pizza (pesto, tomato and red onion). I spread a little olive oil in a cast iron skillet, laid the dough in and pressed it to make big crusts. Baked at 500 for 10 minutes.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Great Biscuits and easy to make with ingredients you probably have in the cupboard. Light and fluffy, but make big hearty biscuits. Similar to biquick biscuits, but less dense and minus all the additives,preservatives, and excess salt.

Stuffed Flank Steak

Just like my Daddy makes! We always called it "turtle". You wouldn't believe how many people think it's actually turtlemeat!

Bland, with a hint of eggnog flavor. Kinda like a spiced sugar cookie. Be sure to grease the cookie sheet!

Chess Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
Nice pie, everything turned out perfectly. However, it was very sweet. Perhaps, I was looking for more of a custard type of pie.

Potato and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
Pretty good. It was a big hit at the potluck. I added red onion and worchester sauce for a kick. *Be sure and melt the sour cream with the butter. If you just add melted butter to the s. cream you'll get a very puffy topping that wont sink down into the dish much.

Old-Time Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
Good Recipe, tasted just like crackerjacks. Only I had a hard time getting the balls to stay as balls. They kept fallng apart. So, I threw in a carmal squares (meltedw/ mixture) and some mixed nuts and they stuck very well. The darker ones in the photo are the ones with caramel.
