Hot Spiced Cranberry Cider

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
Absolutely delicious! We had dark rum on hand, and added this (after the fact) so that both adults and kids, alike, could enjoy this very Fall beverage!

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
These were tasty. I thought they got a little tough after a stay in the fridge and baking, and a little less buttery than I like, but they were still delicious.

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
We couldn't stop eating these! We followed others' suggestions and used equal parts confectioner's sugar, white sugar, and brown sugar. After a day, these cookies were perfection: melt in your mouth peanut buttery, and decadent. We didn't use flour as we wanted them to be gluten-free. Awesome cookie!!!

Bavarian Mints

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
Absolutely delicious! I beat once, and followed others' suggestions to use more peppermint (2 tsp instead of 1). These were creamy and delectable!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
Beautiful, shiny, and easy to apply. I followed everyone's suggestion to add light corn syrup when it dried up. I also added vanilla instead of almond extract since I prefer that. It was delicious!

Cannellini Bean with Flat Leaf Kale

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
Delicious! I followed other reviewers' suggestions and used chicken stock (low sodium). I also sauteed the onions until they were soft, and I used vegetarian kielbasa since I don't eat pork or red meat. It was truly delicious!!!

Butternut Squash Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
Absolutely delicious!!! As other reviewers suggested, I added a sprinkle of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of ground sage, and only 3 cups of low sodium chicken stock. This was absolutely divine!!! It was my first time making Risotto, and a perfect way to begin it, since it turned out perfectly! I feel inspired!

Black Friday Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
This was delicious!!! We followed other reviewers' suggestions to flip the mashed potatoes and the stuffing -- we put the mashed potatoes on top and the stuffing on the bottom, which formed a delicious crust! -- and then we skipped the green beans (didn't have any), and added the rest: pieces of turkey and gravy. We also added our cranberry sauce (as per another reviewer's suggestion), and mashed sweet potatoes. It was fantastic!!! We will definitely be making this again. It was the best use of leftovers I've ever had, and also one of the best dishes I've eaten, period. :)

Ghirardelli® Ultimate Chocolate Fondue

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
We used Ghirardelli bittersweet and milk chocolate chips rather than bars, as they melt quicker. Ghirardelli melts smoother than Baker's chocolate (which tends to be more grainy) and the taste is richer, so I would opt for Ghirardelli for sure. We skipped the chocolate liquor as we couldn't find it in our grocery store. Nonetheless, everyone loved the smooth, rich taste (served with pound cake bites and fresh fruit). This recipe was the hit of our party! Scrumptious!!!

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
We used unsweetened apple sauce, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and dried cranberries instead of raisins. They were thick, chewy, and really delicious! Next time, we're trying 1/2 cup of shredded coconut!

Simple Malaysian Fried Chicken

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
So delicious and tender! We marinated the chicken for an hour and a half, baked it at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour in a basted pan (with canola oil), and broiled it for 5 minutes, turning it once so it would brown evening. You gotta watch the broiling -- it really cooks fast! That said, this chicken was everything and more we thought it would be! It was like tandoori and curry together, with crisp skin. It will definitely become a staple in our house. Thanks, Saadiah! It's amazing.

Hot Fudge Sauce II

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Amazing!!! Better than any hot fudge we've ever tasted!!! We served it over homemade coconut ice cream (also found on All Recipes), and it's like a mounds bar ice cream! Wow. This recipe is a keeper!

Coconut Ice Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
We made this as dessert for a Thai dinner. Like others suggested, we blended the shredded coconut and then added the heavy cream. It was so easy to make! We served the ice cream with almond toffee brittle, and it was wonderfully, refreshing, light and flavorful.

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Really tender and fabulous. As per another reviewer, I steamed rather than boiled the carrots, which took 7 minutes (rather than 20-30). This keeps the flavor as well as the nutrients in. Then, since we were out of brown sugar, I used 1/4 cup of maple syrup with the butter and put that on med-high heat, and cooked the mixture down until it became a syrup, surrounding the carrots (about 7 minutes). They were perfect! Tender, flavorful, and almost like dessert. A great way to eat your veggies!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
Really delicious and very easy! Yes, they took exactly 90 minutes! Amazing. I would definitely make them with the cream cheese frosting; it adds a nice complement of flavors (sweet and tangy).

Cornbread Muffins I

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
Amazingly moist and delicious! We used 1 can of corn (rather than frozen), as suggested by other reviewers. We also used 1/3 cup of honey, and only 1/3 cup of white sugar; the muffins had a wonderful taste of honey (normally, we make honey butter, but they didn't need anything). We also used 1% milk, which worked fabulously! And, 1/3 cup of chopped green chilis -- a great balance with the honey taste. They were done in 15 minutes and were moist, tender, and truly fabulous!

Never Fail Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Buttery, chewy and delicious. We added 1 and 1/2 cups Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup sweetened, dried cranberries, and baked them exactly 10 minutes. They're very good.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
Melt-in-your-mouth AMAZING! Thank you, Angie! These were incredible, and, so easy to make! We beat by hand (rather than with a beater) the chocolate mixture, which we felt would keep the texture chewy and crumbly (rather than tough). And, we didn't make the frosting. These brownies were the perfect mixture of sweet, rich, (but not too rich), and crumbly (while holding together). We made them in minutes, with minimal ingredients (but, used very good unsweetened chocolate: Ghirardelli's), and couldn't stop eating them! 10 Stars!
