Raspberry Ribbons

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Family loved this new addition to the cookie tray and these are probably the easiest as well. I always use parchment paper for baking and I did use wax paper between layers when storing. I also used half and half for the frosting. My husband has sugar issues so I tried using splenda blend for sugar and half canola oil instead of all butter. I also used low sugar spread for the jam. Someone else posted that the low sugar didn't do much for the flavor so I did stir in a bit more splenda into the preserves before I put them on the cookies. It really wasn't that bad, certainly not as good as originally written but not bad if you need to watch the sugar. Low sugar spread tend to "leak" off the loaves also so keep that in mind when applying the spread to the loaves. I also made a few like thumbprints instead of the loaf and they were great also. I will make these again both as written and with changes for my husband.

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
I have looked this recipe over several times and I finally decided to try it. I have been modifying all of the choc. chip recipes so that my diabetic husband can eat them and until now couldn't find one he REALLY liked. This worked perfectly and will be my new go to recipe. I changed quite a bit but it all worked. One stick of margarine, and a bit less than a 1/2 cup of canola oil, for the flour I used 2.5 C a/p flour and 1 C of oats (oats ground up in food processor to equal one cup after grinding), one real egg and 1/4 cup egg substitute, 3/4 C splenda brown sugar blend and 1/4 C + 3 T of the white splenda blend, 2 t. vanilla all else the same. I did add toasted walnuts as well. Baked as directed with a smaller portion I use a medium cookie scoop bake on parchement paper. Perfection! They are correct in saying to watch as they don't brown much but a GREAT cookie in the end! Thanks for this great recipe.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
These really are great! I made half the recipe and put in an 8 x 8, I wish I had made the entire recipe because they are going fast. I did sub splenda baking sugar for the sugar and half applesauce half oil for the oil. In the frosing I used half splenda baking sugar and half powdered sugar. I sprinkled the nuts on the frosting instead of putting in the brownies. Mine were very brownie like I did not think they were cakey.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
This turned out great! I don't usually make a lot of changes but recently my husband found out he has diabetes so I made a number of changes so that he could enjoy this. First I used liquid unsweetened chocolate, 3/4 C of canola oil ( I would have tried half applesauce but I was out of it--next time) 3/4 C fake eggs, splenda sugars 3/4 white and 1/4 brown; you only use half of the sugar needed when using spelnda baking sugar. I also mixed in a banana. This was really good and I will make it again. I did flour the chips and I added pecans to the flour before adding to the batter. I used pam/w flour for the pans and had no problems getting loaves out. This was a huge hit and actually I may even use less sugar next time it was a bit sweet.

Pink Ladies

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
I made 3 different cookies for Valentine's day trays and this by far was the most liked, many people asked for the recipe. I used the 8x8 but I lined it with parchment paper and it worked perfectly. I followed all of the other directions with two excpetions, the first I used about 1/3 cup of white choc chips in place of all choc. and lastly I added about 1/3 of a cup of chopped candied cherries to the frosting. Quick, easy and delicious!

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
This was GREAT and I will make again. Followed advice of others and lightly coated the crust with ranch then added the chicken and topped with about 4 oz of mozzarella. I used more franks hot sauce than called for probably doubled that but it was GREAT. I made a very popular crust from this site in the bread machine and it made for an easy meal, THANKS!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
This was very good. Followed the advice of some others and did this in the bread machine, could not have been easier. I did proof the yeast as directed, then added the other ingredients. I only did half the recipe but used closer to 2 cups of flour. This dough was very easy to work with. I did prebake for 7 min on a preheated stone. I used this to make the buffalo chicken pizza and it too was great. While the crust didn't get too brown the taste and texture were very good.

Ultimate Cranberry Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
I really wanted to LOVE this recipe, as I have tasted the steamed cranberry pudding and LOVED IT. The ingredients are similar but cooking methods must make the difference. This was ok, but I probably won't make it again. I did follow directions and it looks wonderful but the taste was just ok. Extremely heavy/dense cake. Guess I need to break down and buy a cake mold/steamer and try that.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
WOW this was really great! It really tasted exactly like poppers. I pretty much followed directions, however; I could not find canned diced jalapenos, I bought a 7 oz can of pickled jalapenos, diced them and added. I did not feel it was hot at all so I added 5 fresh diced jalapenos, still really no heat so next time I will add some of the seeds. I used the green chilies, 1/2 c miracle whip and 1/2 c sour cream. Added half the grated cheese to the mix and the other half to the top with the panko bread crumbs sprayed with pam (for bit of browning) and popped in the oven at 350 for 20-30 min. Served with toasted bread and ritz.

Jambalaya Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This was quite good! I only made a third of the recipe and it was plenty of rice, next time I will probably add more sausage. I actually softened the onion , green pepper and celery in the 6T of butter then added the rice and chicken broth (low sodium) then all the other items in the saute pan, then put it in the oven for 50 min in my papmered chef covered baker. I did add a teaspoon of cajun seasoning and 2 to 3 times as much worchestershire and franks red hot sauce. I did not add additional salt, I used red and white onion as well as some green. I did not use parsley or browning liquid and I did use a can of diced tomatoes.

Pumpkin Cookies V

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
These are wonderful! I just made half a batch because I was trying to use up a half can of pumpkin and I wish I had made a full batch. These really are great and the frosting YUM. I did use more powdered sugar in the frosting to thicken it,margarine instead of shortening, but other than that made the recipe as writen. I did flatten the dough slightly before baking and as always I use parchment paper. GREAT RECIPE!

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
I have been using the same old same old chili recipe forever and I wanted to try something new; boy this was a GREAT choice! I had all intentions of using turkey but the store was out of ground turkey so I used ground beef. I did only make half of this recipe but I did use the entire can of beans and tomato sauce. They also had no habanero peppers so I subbed 2 jalapeno pepppers leaving the seeds in one of them. The only thing I am not so sure I really liked was the liquid smoke so I may leave it out next time so I can compare.**REVISED** 10-31-08 Ate this as leftovers and didn't mind the liquid smoke nearly as much. I think in the future I will make this a day ahead of time.

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
Not as hard as it would appear! I was looking to use up some pumpkin pie spice and that is why I chose this recipe. I pretty much followed the recipe except for a couple of minor things, one I used an 11 x 15 pan lined with parchment paper; be sure to spread the batter pretty evenly, it does not rise like a cake from a box it comes out pretty much like it goes in. Two, I sprinkled the powdered sugar directly on the cake and put the damp towel over it and flipped it out; rolled it up as stated to cool, spread the filling on, added chopped walnuts to half the filling and rolled it up. The final rolling was my only hang up and at first it was because I was trying to roll it too tightly, just lift the towel and let it roll like that, it is perfect. I too wrapped in plastic wrap and then in foil to refrigerate. This really was very easy and quick as well.

Pig Pickin' Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
This is always a family favorite, I have been making this for years but last night I decided to make it a bit "healthier" and it really turned out GREAT. I used fake eggs, sugar-free pudding, low sugar cake mix, fat free cool whip, 1/2 canola oil 1/2 applesauce. I also used 2 - 8 x 8 pans and froze one for later, put 1/2 the topping in the frig for later as well.

Best Chocolate Chippers

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
These are very good and I even baked them a bit too long. I like softer, cakey choc chip cookies, but my husband does not and these are very good. I used 1/2 shortening and 1/2 margarine, cut down on the oil to 2/3 C., added 2T of 1/2 and 1/2 and used a combo of semi and milk choc chips. There is a bit of a taste from the cream of tartar in them so I may try using a bit less next time, but I will make these again. If you like a crispier cookie definitely try these!

White Chocolate Gorp

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
This for us was just so so, and after spending in upwords of $15 to make it, I probably won't attempt it again. As it is I am going to give most of this away. I did use the suggestion of wal mart white choc chips, so in all fairness I may try it again using almond bark.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
Sorry to say I didn't really care for this cookie. Followed directions and while they were okay, I have an old stand-by scotch cookie that I prefer much more than this one. The tastes are similar but the texture of this cookie was very cakey.

Urban Legend Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
Haven't made these in years and they were just as good as I remember. I think I prefer the toll house recipe with a bit of extra flour but this was food for a change. I used semi sweet and milk choc mini chips instead of the bar. I may have added too much flour because I am used to adding extra to the toll house recipe but these were still very good.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

This pie looked beautiful right out of the oven, but the taste was just okay. I have a traditional recipe that I will continue to use.

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
This was a first for me and SO EASY! I followed the directions as written and I only had to microwave for 2 minutes. I probably could have gone one more but as I said this was my first time for lemon curd. It is a bit tangy, I might add more sugar next time but over all this was GREAT and SIMPLE. I did not need to temper the mixture I only strained it to remove the zest, as I knew my family would complain. This is very versatile I used it on angel food cake but the possiblities are endless. Thanks!
