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.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
1 word: AWESOME. I don't have a bread machine so I made these guys by hand using some of the tips from the other reviewers. These things rose up big, and were very tasty. I ommitted the cream cheese for the icing---definitely double-up on the icing! I'll be making these again sometime and altering the recipe a bit...maybe add some chopped nuts of some sort to the filling in the middle.

Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
Authentic shortbread taste. Sooo much better than what you find in stores. I made mine entirely by hand (no mixers here), and didn't have a rolling pin or anything, so I let the dough sit in the fridge for about 15 minutes, then rolled it into balls, flattened them with my palm, and did the fork punches. Cooked them for about 18 minutes and the outcome? Super tasty. If a college guy like me can do it, anyone can. Inexpensive and easy recipe. I highly recommend it!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
Easy and tasty! I added a bit more vanilla than the recipe called for and they came out great at 375 for 10 minutes. I tried leaving them in for 8 minutes, as suggested by some reviewers, and they were still doughy in the middle. Just make sure you keep an eye on them is all I can really offer! ***UPDATE*** Decided to make these again and they came out great. Prior to baking I rolled mine in a combo of 2 tbsp. sugar to 1 tsp. cinnamon and they came out awesome. Definitely a keeper recipe now.

Colleen's Potato Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
Very tasty and versatile recipe! Very easy for a newbie to pull off too. I didn't let the dough rest as long as was suggested (8 hours or more), but it came out great all the same. Just be aware that the recipe makes a LOT of these rolls, so make sure you have plenty of friends or family over to help eat them.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
I've never made any type of bread before, and though I did it all by hand, I found it incredibly easy. I needed a bit more water than the recipe called for (the dough was too dry otherwise), and I let it rise for 40 minutes instead of 20. I also proofed the yeast before adding it in. Came out great, but a bit dry and lacking in flavor. I'll try adding in some other goodies next time. ***UPDATE**** Gave this recipe another star. I decided to try it out again. I didn't use a bread machine and used butter instead of olive oil (and plan on using melted butter instead of vegetable oil when I make it again). Brushed the top with melted butter and minced garlic (fresh). Came out a bit flat, but it made some AWESOME breadsticks for dipping. So...another star it is.
