Krystal's Perfect Marinade for BBQ or Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
This is a good start for a marinade, but the sheer amount of sesame oil in this is completely overpowering. It's all I could taste.

Almond Sandies

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This was delicious despite all the substitutions I had to make. I ran out of butter so I used a combination of butter-flavored shortening and margarine. I also ran out of granulated sugar, so I used splenda for baking. They were moist and cakey instead of crispy, but they were still amazing. Also, I zested a small orange and put a half cup of dried cranberries in the cookies. I definitely recommend doing this.

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
This was a good recipe but I was expecting more of a toffee flavor, which I really didn't get. I'll either add more brickle or I'll chop up heath bars like suggested by other reviewers. I'm also going to try some espresso powder in the mix to see if I can evoke the same flavor as Ben and Jerry's Coffee Heath Bar Crunch.

Apple Pie Slices

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
These are super delicious, but I was under the impression that this would be easier than making an actual pie and it wasn't. I still had to make the dough and roll it out. I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to substitute a storebought pie crust, though, if one wanted something slightly simpler.

Banana Cheesecake with Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
Something was amiss for me with this recipe and I can't really put my finger on it. I think it was the overpowering banana flavor combined with the cheese. It's just a really rich desert that I wish had more caramel flavor throughout instead of just on top. Note to people trying this: make the caramel sauce on the side and dress each slice instead of covering the whole thing like I did. The sauce becomes strange and watery/milky in the fridge.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
DELICIOUS! The perfect amount of spice and sweet. Even the diehard anti-oatmeal raisin people at my work ate these. I never use shortening in my cookies, though, so I just substituted that portion with butter.

Brazilian Coffee Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
This was just okay for me. I think what really turned me off was the granules of instant coffee that I'd crunch into while I was eating the cookie. If I ever make this again, I'll try a powder or I'll use fresh-brewed coffee.

Chocolate Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
After quite a few Thanksgivings, my mother had finally confessed to me that she hated Pumpkin Pie, and since she's not a "dessert person" she put me in charge of making something else. I made this and it was gone within the hour. Now it's a part of our holiday traditions. So, thank you for a delicious recipe. I did tweak it just slightly: I used twice the amount of cream in the ganache so it was more pliable and easier to cut into straight out of the fridge. Fantastic!

Elvis Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
I would have given this a five, but I had some serious cooking time issues. The recipe said 10 minutes but I was leaving mine in for about 5 minutes longer, which was really surprising, because my oven runs hot and I usually have to watch everything I put in there. I did tweak it a little: I pre-blended my bananas with about 1/4c honey to add another layer of flavor. I also sprinkled cinnamon sugar over the top of the cookies before I baked them. Delicious cookie.

Chocolate Chip Cookies Lite

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
These were pretty darn good for low-fat cookies! They do come out a little more like a muffin or a pancake than a cookie, but I like muffins so it works. I also used splenda instead of the sugar, and that worked out very well. I recommend the use of some kind of cooking spray or parchment paper, though. I needed a jackhammer to get those cookies off the sheet!

Baby Ruth™ Layer Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
Extraordinarily good with the only downfall being the length of time it takes to make. I suggest playing around with the recipe. I actually made an almond joy cake instead substituting almond joys and almond butter for baby ruths and peanut butter. It was fantastic. I omitted the whipped cream for whipped chocolate frosting, which might be too sweet for some, but it was fine by me. Overall, a good (even if tedious) recipe.
