Cream Cheese Snowball Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
These were SO GOOD! I used all butter (no shortening) and they came out great; the cream cheese flavor isn't too strong but definitely gives the cookies a nice flavor and texture. I would recommend letting them cool about 4-5 minutes before rolling in the powdered sugar or they get sticky. I stored mine in a big ziploc bag with the remaining powdered sugar and they kept very well.

Cranberry Fruit Punch

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
Really good; I made some ice cubes out of both the pineapple and cranberry juices. I can't give it 5 stars because I felt like the ginger ale made it taste just slightly off; I will probably use seltzer next time or maybe lemon-lime soda.

Dessertlover's Classic Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
Delicious! I let it cook for about 12-13 minutes in the initial cooking process (sugar, water, butter); it wasn't quite as dark as I expected but I didn't want to burn it. Also, when it cooked in the second round I cooked it the full 10 minutes, and it did seem quite thin, which I had read in some reviews. However, after letting it cool and set in the fridge it thickened up just fine. As I mentioned, it was a little pale, but it tasted amazing so I don't think I'd change a thing!

Green Beans Amandine

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This was so good! It was quick and easy, and everyone ate it, even people who swear they don't like green beans.

Play Dough Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
The taste was a little bland, but they looked great and were easy to work with. Next time I may add some different extracts to the dough for more flavor.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
I made this in three 9" round cake pans; it took about 25 minutes to bake. It was moist, flavorful and just dense enough to hold up to the cream cheese frosting. We will definitely be making this again!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
The dough was very easy to work with after 12 hours in the fridge. I didn't think the taste was amazing, but sugar cookies are generally pretty plain; my main reason for not rating 5 stars was that they were a little too puffy and didn't hold detail very well. Next time I will roll them thinner, which will hopefully help with the puffiness.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
It was OK, I will probably make it again with a few adjustments. I tend to like a little more heat, so I will add some dry pepper flakes.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
Very easy and pretty good. I didn't give 5 stars because I think the recipe didn't make enough sauce, I had to double it.

Coconut Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
The cake tasted great, which is why I gave it a high score even though the outside burned before the inside was cooked. I'm not sure how that happened, but I scrapped off the burned stuff and it was good.

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Very easy and turned out amazing! I used marshmallow creme as suggested by another member and it was so incredible I will be using again. I would suggest that people use gel food coloring though, as I had a hard time with my liquid food coloring squirting out when I was kneading it in.

Braided Easter Egg Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
I rarely rate a recipe this low but I can't think of anything about it that turned out right except that the eggs looked pretty. I've made breads before and I followed the recipe exactly, and the dough was incredibly sticky, the braid was very difficult to make and looked like a big circle not a twist. If it had at least tasted good I would've been OK with the way it looked, but it was horrible. Not sure what went wrong.

Mini Cheesecakes II

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I found that the nilla wafers weren't big enough to cover the bottom of the cupcake liner, and also the cheesecake was a little too cakey. If I try these again I will probably make a graham cracker crumb crust and add some sour cream to the cheesecake batter.

Scented Applesauce-Cinnamon Ornaments

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Overall very easy and great-smelling. I had a little trouble rolling it out in the beginning, but the more I worked with it the easier it was. I think next time I will add some glue as others have suggested to make them a little less brittle (the only reason I didn't give 5 stars).

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I hate to do this, especially to a recipe that so many other people enjoyed, but mine didn't turn out well. I made it for Thaknsgiving and it was hardly touched. The crust burned, the filling had an unusual texture, and there were too many apples so they didn't cook through. I followed the recipe exactly, so I'm not sure what the problem was. I've made lots of cheesecakes and I was a little unsure about the ingredients for the filling, they seemed lacking, but I trusted the recipe. I'm sorry but I was really disappointed and will not be making this again or recommending it.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
The taste and texture were great. The only problem I had was that it rose quite a bit while cooking, which I wasn't expecting, so I ended up with a thick crust. Not really a bad thing, but I usually prefer a thinner crust so next time I will split the dough in half to make two thin crust pizzas.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Pretty good; the topping made these better than they would have been on their own.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
So quick, easy and fool-proof! All of my other attempts at pizza crust have produced dough that is too elastic or rises too much during baking, I had no problems with this dough. BTW, I used unbleached flour and canola oil and it still turned out great.
