Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
This was very good. Very easy to make, but just a little too rich.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
This is the best cheesecake I have ever made. It was very easy to make and everyone loved it. I've made cheesecakes before that turned out just okay. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you Chantal!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
These are great cookies. I'm not even finished baking them yet and they are already being inhaled. They came out perfect - just as described - soft in the middle with crisp ends. Although my oven might be off because I have to bake them for 13 minutes. Thank you for a great recipe!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
This is a very delicious bread. I made it just as the recipe instructed and it came out great. I was concerned that the 3 cups of sugar would make it too sweet, but it was perfect. The spices were just right and even the batter tasted yummy :P It smelled wonderful baking and was great with a cup of tea. I might try to lighten it up next time wtih some applesauce in place of the oil, as some reviewers suggested. Thank you for a great recipe!

Mom's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly and my whole family loved it. I used fresh pumpkin puree. I cut pie pumpkins in half and scoop out the seeds and goop with a grapefruit spoon - that seems to work out pretty well. Then place on a foil lined baking sheet and place the pumpkins cut side down. (I use a little bit of Pam so they don't stick). Then I completely cover the pumpkin with foil and put in a 350 degree oven for about an hour. However, some people say they can get two cups of puree from one pumpkin but I seem to only get one, so I have to do two pie pumpkins. After they have roasted, I scoop the pumpkin out of the shell and then throw them in the food processor to make the puree smooth and creamy. I've found out after experimenting I don't need to strain it, I think the roasting keeps the pumpkin from being too watery, as opposed to steaming which I think makes for the watery pies I've heard people complain of. But thanks for the recipe, this one is a keeper!

New England Blueberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
I'm not exactly sure what I did wrong but I couldn't "sprinkle" the topping on, it was quite gooey when I mixed everything together, which indicated to me this was not going to come out right. The cake took twice as long to bake and now I have burnt, cement-like edges and the center is more like pudding. Maybe someday I'll make another attempt. Thanks anyway.

Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
I've been looking for a deli-style coleslaw like the kind you can find back east. I made this today, and I don't think it was as tangy as other reviewers said it was. It gets better the longer it sits in the fridge. I also had a half tablespoon of celery seed. But I may continue with my search.

Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
I don't know about this being a quick recipe as some reviewers described it, but it is very good. Perfect balance of tart & sweet. Was delicious on scones. Thank you!

Easiest Pot Roast Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
This was a great dinner to come home to tonight, it's cold and rainy out. The meat came out very tender and very flavorful. I've been using the McCormick seasoning for pot roasts, and those are pretty good but wanted to try something different and didn't want to worry about preservitives or additives in seasonings. Thanks for the great recipe!

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
These are excellent muffins! I did make some changes - I used whole wheat pastry flour in place of the all-purpose flour, I cut the sugar in half and used unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil and they came out great! My husband is trying to cut back on sugars and fats and this worked out perfectly. So for his batch I left off the streusel topping. These muffins are very moist and smell so good while baking. Thank you for a great recipe!

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2006
I am only giving this 2 stars because it was too salty. It was easy to make and it did smell very good while cooking, but all it tasted like was salt-coated chicken. Thank you anyway.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
This is a wonderful banana bread! I used four bananas and added a splash of vanilla and about a teaspoon of cinnamon. It is very moist and has a wonderful banana flavor. Next time I make it I will add walnuts, as I didn't have any on hand. I also added a streusel topping from another banana bread recipe I've been using - 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup of flour and 2 T. butter. Use a pastry blender and mix until crumbly. Sprinkle on top of the batter before you bake. I will definitely make this again and again! Thank you Shelley!

Italian Herb Bread II

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
I'm sorry, I just wasn't very impressed. It smelled nice when baking, I just didn't think it tasted too great. It came out kind of tough.

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
I've been searching for quite some time for a good peanut cookie, as most recipes come out with the same results: boring, flat and bland...so when I found this recipe, I was a bit hesitant but decided to go for it. I thought for sure they wouldn't be any different. I am so glad I tried it! They are great! I added peanut butter chips to the mix. I like how the cookies are a bit puffier than others, and are on the chewy side. Unfortunately, I used a generic brand of peanut butter, and I agree with one taster who said that a good quality brand is a must. Will use my favorite brand the next time I make these. Thank you for a great recipe!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
I just pulled this crisp out of the oven and held my breath because Woops! I forgot to add the water! It looked pretty juicy so I scooped some onto a dish, added vanilla ice cream and it is just heavenly! The crunchy topping is the best part of it (which honestly I was picking at before I added it to the apples, which may be the reason I forgot the water). I will make this again and again - but I think next time I may add just a bit more cinnamon. A perfect dessert for a cool autumn day. Thank you Diane!
