Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie V

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
I'll say three and a half stars. It tastes fine but just isn't that special. Not really worth the calories! I will give it props for being super fast to prepare, though. Good for a quick fix.

Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies II

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
These cookies are WONDERFUL. The dough is so sturdy and easy to handle: pops right out of the cookie cutters. I subbed nutmeg for the mace and the result almost had a flavor reminiscent of eggnog. My cookies were cut small and I baked for SIX minutes - was perfect.

Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
Disappointing as these were kind of bland. The cream cheese portion does not stand out. There are much tastier ways to use a brownie mix and I won't make this again.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
This is so delicious - best potato soup I've ever had. I tripled the recipe but used 9 potatos; I supposed my soup was pretty chunky but we love it like that. I did not increase the broth, however, from it's original indications, and just used water to make up the difference. Tasted great and saved money. Baking the potatoes rather than boiling as with traditional potato soups really adds flavor!

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
Definitely spring for a good chocolate for a truly gourmet result. I used generic chips and got a generic result; nothing to write home about (but it WAS cream cheese and sugar so I couldn't really go too wrong!) These do offer opportunity for creativity and the result is pleasing to the eye: I rolled mine in cocoa powder, powdered sugar, almonds and hazelnuts.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
The thing I don't like about this recipe is that it's very difficult to make healthy. Typically I would use applesauce rather than fat, all egg whites, and honey or agave rather than sugar. This recipe just doesn't really accommodate those substitutions. But, if you're looking for all the delicious calories, these cookies work tastily. DOES need more spice, though (nutmeg, ginger, double cinnamon.)

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
Nice and buttery tasting. I served for a bunch of teenage boys... if you plan on doing this, double the recipe. At least.

German Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
I shredded the potatoes in a food processor to speed things up. These cook very evenly; I didn't have problems with the outsides burning while the inside remained mushy, as I have with other potato pancake recipes. Needed extra salt. I served with dollops of sour cream.

Baked Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
Very rich! I served for guests and they raved. It's pretty simple and if you pre-boil your eggs the night before, this is quicker than other egg casseroles.

Frosted Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
The cookies are just okay; quite cakey and a bit bland. I am thrilled about the frosting, though (hence the ***** rating,) and as I have some extra, am going to make butter cookies to use the excess on. I used maple syrup as I had no flavoring. You MUST try this frosting!!!

Curry Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
Delicious and flavorful. I took a short-cut for the sake of time by chopping the onion in the food processor and then cooking, rather than cook then puree. I served with chicken over rice...yum~

Great for the holidays. I rolled mine in crushed candy canes rather than powdered sugar. They were festive and delicious!

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
For a fudge that takes the easy way out by using marshmallow cream, I found this recipe pretty difficult to get right. Mine was on the crumbly/dry side, which apparently means I boiled it too long. Fudge can be tricky. The flavor was good though and I'll attempt it again to get the "creamy" experience!

Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
I love that the dough popped right out of the cookie cutter and I didn't have to reshape deformed cookies on the sheet! The dough holds up great, is very managable and sturdy. I subbed molasses for corn syrup and will next time add an extra Tbsp, as there wasn't quite enough bite for me. Decorated with Royal Icing I.

Royal Icing I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
Good, but required an extra cup of confectioner's sugar to get to piping consistency.

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
Absolutely delicious. A perfect fall dish. Not all that spicy though. Great served with crusty bread!
