White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
If I had more than 2 thumbs, I would put up about 10! Only added salt and vanilla. Also put some Craisins in 1/2 the batch. Perfect.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
We all know that apple crisp is just an excuse to eat that yummy sweet, oat, and buttery topping! 5 stars just for that! :)

Norwegian Lefse

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
Cont: Though we ALWAYS drove down to Decorah, Iowa, for their annual Nordic Fest, and the highlight was watching the ladies dressed in traditional Norwegian clothing (of course during the hottest weekend of the year!) making lefse for purchase. There's nothing like fresh, warm, slightly crispy on the edges lefse, toppings or none! The homemade scent of lefse that filled our condo this week brought back so many great family memories! It didn't matter the holiday, there was never enough lefse to go around. We'd end up getting one each, and the rest we'd have to split with all my cousins and aunts and uncles! What a treat!

My husband made this fudge a few weeks ago...we got some more ingredients to make more, but we fear eating it all again!!! SO good. Great texture!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
Made these last night. Baked them at 375 degrees as suggested. I like chewy, my husband likes crunchy, so to compromise I let half the batch bake a couple minutes longer than ther other. (I never go by recipe times because my oven is weird. I just have to "babysit".) These cookies are mainly for our church cookie social and to give as gifts, but the baker and spouse always have to "test" them. And the one I tried was chewy goodness, but just a little flaky around the edges. Not my favorite TYPE of cookie (I'm more of a chocolate or molasses fan), but I would definitely make these again. Husband said they are good for "dipping". :)

Sweet-as-Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
For some reason, the oil makes the chewiness of these cookies! This is my sugar cookie staple because they are NOT cakey, and plus, I don't have the patience for the roll & cut out procedure. Maybe when I have kids! :) But this is the tastiest drop sugar cookie recipe I have found so far.

Cookie Jar Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
This is my mom's recipe! But I add more spices like nutmeg and allspice. Just made some to give away as gifts for Christmas!

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
No, try this on an ENGLISH MUFFIN. I am serious, I eat this EVERY morning for breakfast. I also drizzle a little honey over the peanut butter, and then slice the bananas over that. Just enough for breakfast, and a great source of protein to get me through the morning! There is NOTHING like melted peanut butter over a toasted english muffin... I buy the $1 six pack and they are even better than the brand name. Try it. You'll be hooked! (Oh yeah, and let the bananas ripen a little more...SO good that way!)

Molasses Crinkles

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Yep, these are the best! I was actually looking for a molasses/ginger cookie recipe that I thought might taste like my mom's recipe, and this is the one I thought I'd try. Later I found a copy of my mom's version on a recipe card, and it is almost identical! I like both crunchy and chewy spice cookies, but I like chewy best, and these ARE chewy! I don't care how bad it is for you, it's the shortening that gives the chewiness! One tip: use an air bake sheet or stone for best results. I used air bake for one batch, and an older cookie sheet for the other, and the air bake ones were super chewy! I'll post a pic of them later. Because of course, they are gone!MMMMMMMMM!!!!!

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
OH YEAH!!! Made this recently, and when my husband took some to work, the container was gone in half an hour! VERY moist. The butterscotch chips are optional, but I found they added a lot without being overpowering. Also, I used a yellow cake made with Splenda, since there was already plenty of brown sugar in the crumb mixture. Also, I substituted 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce for 3/4 cup of the oil, adding only 1/4 cup oil. Didn't affect flavor at all; probably made it better, and definitely more healthy. Also, there was already 1 cup of pudding in the cake mix, so I omitted the pkg. of vanilla pudding. You could probably also use other flavors of pudding, whatever is on hand. I HIGHLY recommend you try this one! SO easy!

Better Than Sex Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
I've made this several times before. Yes it's rich, but eaten in moderation (which is difficult with this one!) it more than satisfies the sweet tooth. Have made this for a group and just for fun, varying it just a little each time. You can't beat sweetened condensed milk. (Especially since the cook gets to scrape the can!)

Chunky Chicken Veggie Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
My sister-in-law made this soup for us thsi past weekend, and it was excellent! I don't normally like spice, but everything was so fresh, and the spice added so much flavor! I also don't like cooked tomatoes, but my husband gladly ate up the ones in my bowl! :) The zucchini and carrots tasted great with the chicken. She left out the creole seasoning because she doesn't have any, but there was already so much flavor so we couldn't tell the difference. And we didn't even add crackers! :)

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
I would like to try this recipe. One question though...why soak the raisens? And keep the eggs in room temp for an hour? Is that healthy? I don't like raisens plump and juicy. I like them on the harder, chewy side. With that preference in mind, should I still soak the raisens? Or just toss them in the batter? Thanks! :)
