Thin Mint Crackers

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
So easy! What a great idea...that I kind of changed. Instead of Ritz crackers, I used Nabisco Famous chocolate wafers and melted Andes mints. I am not even kidding how great these were! Thin, crispy and chocolaty! I am thinking about making sandwiches with the wafers with marshmellow cream in the middle and then dunking them in the melted Andes mints. Oh the possibilities! Try these, you won't be sorry!

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
Oh my gosh these turned out sooo good! Perfect. I followed the recipe to a "T". They came out puffed up and I stacked them on top of eachother in a paper bag to cool. Then I slit them open. Some I filled with honey butter for a tasty dessert, and some I filled with a shredded curry chicken mixture with sour cream. I used a bread maker for these and I am not kidding, I've never tasted anything better! I will be making these all the time!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
These had a good texture and remained soft for a week. I didn't like the strong molasses taste, but my husband who is a ginger freak, absolutely loved these cookies. I only gave 4 stars because they weren't "perfect" for me.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
These tasted better the second day! I am not a fan of "cakey" cookies so I slightly mashed down the top near the end of the baking time and they came out dense and soft! I added a tsp. of salt and 1 T of vanilla and 1/2 tsp of baking powder per the other suggestions. These cookies are fabulous!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
I've never made cheesecake before and needed a dessert for a picnic. I tried this one and baked it in a 9x13 pan. It was perfect! I topped it with fresh fruit and it was a hit! Perfect consistancy and taste. I did increase the graham cracker crust a little to get good coverage. Otherwise, it is the perfect amount of filling for a 9x13 pan! Thanks for a delicious cheesecake recipe that you'd think came from a bakery! 6-13-07... Update... I made this again in an 8" springform and did not get a single crack! I placed a baking pan filled with water above the cheesecake while cooking and it turned out perfect! Dense and creamy! I can't wait to start adding flavors and switching up the crust!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
I was looking for a cookie that would be chewy, chocolatey and with just a hint of peanut butter. This recipe is it! Perfect in every way!

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
Where is the flavor? I bake bread all the time, so it's not like I'm a novice, but this bread tasted nothing like bakery bread! The textute and crust were perfect, but you taste it and nothing. What did everone else do differently I wonder?

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
I made these in the bread machine and they were terrific! I found that they could have used a little more flour as they really ran together in the pan. But they cooked up beautifully and were delicious for ham sandwiches or just plain with butter. Will make again!

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
The aroma when baking was delicious! The hens were moist, tender and had a light flavor. Maybe I could have done more to flavor throught the skin next time. Very good though.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2007
These are true to the claim! Soft and chewy and delicious! One thing though, they don't spread much beyond what you squish them down to with a fork, so if you want larger cookies, make larger dough balls and squish accordingly. Excellent recipe!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
These cookies were very good, but unlike Tollhouse cookies, they had a lot of air inside. I think I prefer a denser cookie. These did however turn out beautifully. They stayed thick and perfectly round-they would make a great presentation at a bakesale or party. Again, they were very tasty, but I prefer a more chewy, dense cookie. I did add an extra 1/2 tsp. of salt because it didn't seem like the recipe called for enough.

Turkey Mercedes

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
This turkey was fabulous. I made it with a 4 pound breast and had the servings adjusted using the tool on the website. My whole family went crazy for it. It is not overwhelmingly citrusy or garlicky. Just very juicy and flavorful. I am not a pro. chef, this is the first turkey I have ever tried to roast and it was soooo easy with wonderful returns. Most of the work is the marinade and you do that the night before!

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
These chocolate cookies are fabulous! If you are looking for a recipe that bakes soft, thick, cookies that do not fall flat, you must try these! Also, for a fun minty-chocolate cookie, I added a bag of Andes baking chips and they are to DIE FOR!! These cookies do not last long in our house! I use a 50-50 mixture of Splenda and sugar for my diabetic husband and you can't even tell!

Restaurant-Style Tequila Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2006
This turned out absolutely delicious! My husband kept saying what a good cook I was! The marinade lends a very light lime taste that perfectly compliments the southwest sour cream sauce. There were no overwhelming flavors, just a perfect blend. I left out the tequila and didn't miss it. I paired it with a Lipton Chipotle rice package and it will become a weekly staple in our home! Thanks!

Greek Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
I too, used the "absolutely fabulous dressing" recipe on this website and it was good with this salad. My daughter went crazy for the salami in this salad. I will definitely make this again.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
I decided to listen to the other reviews and added half balsamic vinegar with the red wine vinegar and it wasn't to my liking. I also scaled the recipe way down, which could have scewed the results. I will try it again though. Thanks for the great recipe.

Fruited Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
Delicious! The curry is not over-powering, but lends a light, almost sweet flavor. I left out the nuts and just used celery, apples and grapes with the chicken. My whole family loved this recipe! Thanks!

Peppery Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2006
This bread is DELICIOUS! Moist, cheesy and airy. I also used a cup and a half of small cheese cubes instead of shredded for the gooey cheese bites. I did not divide the dough and it had to rise about 2 and a half hours. The only problem I had was that the outside of the bread wanted to stick to the pan because of the cheese chunks and the whole middle came out. We couldn't slice this bread but just dug-in instead and ate it straight from the oven. Thank you for this recipe-the whole family gobbled it up!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
This is a great, easy recipe. My only advice would be, make sure you LOVE the flavor of your BBQ sauce. I did use a Jack Daniels sauce, but it was a little too smoky for my taste. I loved being able to throw frozen chicken in the crock pot and have dinner be ready after work. It doesn't get any easier!
