White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
Was Ok but not a keeper. All I tasted was butter...

Crispy Catfish

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
Tried the recipe as-is (but doubled) and it came out great! Will try it with other types of mild white-flesh fish.

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
Tried this one out to frost the cupcakes I made (Simple White Cake recipe on the site). Was disappointed. The recipe, as is, came out nice in texture, but way too sweet. So I added milk...which ruined the original texture. It still didn't help the sweetness. Eventually I had a semi-runny mess that still wasn't that great in flavor. Maybe I did something wrong? Or maybe hand mixing just won't work for this one.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
Followed the recipe exactly and was pretty disappointed. The texture was that of a corn muffin, and the flavor just wasn't all that great to me. My mate was put off by the texture/look. Sadly, I think this is one recipe that won't be revisited.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
I didn't follow the recipe precisely (No celery or onion, so I eyeballed some celery salt and added garlic powder). I'm not really even a big ham fan, but this was pretty tasty! Good base...I think I'll try it with chicken and corn. Thanks!

Italian Herb Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
Made this in my new bread machine. Wasn't really all that impressed with the flavor. Nothing spectacular. Probably good with some spaghetti though, or dipped in some herb infused EVOO.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Followed the recipe exactly aside from mixing it in the same pan and such (I don't have a cast iron skillet or anything). The flavor is EXCELLENT, but the texture was a bit off for mine. Not sure what happened there...it didn't come out looking like the photos others have shared. Maybe I did something wrong? Maybe I shouldn't have used extra large eggs (all I had)?

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
Nice and easy to make. I didn't adhere to the recipe 100% (because I didn't have all the ingredients), but it was a hit all the same. Next time I'll make sure to get everything I need.

Oatmeal Soda Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
Followed a halved recipe exactly. Rather dry, dense, and bran-like in flavor. Won't be making this again.

Honey Of An Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
*UPDATE* This bread is awesome. I've made it several times in both a breadmaker, and by hand. Each time I make it, it comes out great. My mate loves it. I do substitute the water with skim or 2% milk (whichever I have on hand)...it enhances the flavor and makes the loaf more dense. Definitely a keeper recipe. I use it at least once a week. Thanks!

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
Simple and easy, though you need a bit more than a pinch of salt (I did anyway).

Paula's Bread Sticks

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
Not great, just OK. They're kind of flavorless (so I recommend dumping some herbs into the dough) and definitely not as tasty after a day or so. Great right out of the oven though. Mine stayed soft all over. Made them twice, both times I got the same result. Not going to save this one. Sorry!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
Easy to make...Mine didn't rise that big, but I think it's because I flattened the dough out too much (I got 9 biscuits instead of 6). Flavor is OK. I think I'll try another suggestion and use cutter shortening or even chilled margarine one day.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
It's still chilling, but so far it looks like it's turning out great. I followed the advice of several other reviewers and did the whole 2 cups of brown sugar, 3 cups of powdered sugar, and 1 cup of PB. Since I don't have a mixer I did it all by hand (I don't recommend it...). Took about 5 minutes of vigorous mixing to get all the clumps of powdered sugar mixed in and for it to become smooth. Tasted great off the spoon. ;) **UPDATE** Tasted great and was a hit! A bit sweet, but tasty! The PB flavor was not overpowering at all and it came out just like regular fudge. Thanks for the great recipe! I know what I'll be making this holiday seasoning for the gift baskets.

Scrumptious Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
Pretty good recipe. I liked it, but my mate thought the shortcake was too savory and a bit like a scone. The shortcake WAS a bit biscuit like, but very tasty all the same to me. Since I didn't purchase enough strawberries and whipcream, I just saved the shortcakes and had them with some eggs the next morning. Tasty!

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
So simple, yet soooo tasty! I use frozen green beans instead of the canned ones (they're healthier). It's a great accompaniment to roasted or fried chicken...not so much with fish. Or they make a great meal themselves if frozen or canned green beans is all you have laying around.

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
Quick and easy. Tastes great. Don't try and substitute shredded parm (all I had)...it won't be as salty. I added a bit of red pepper powder into my breadcrumb mix and a bit of garlic powder. Great recipe.
