Roasted Chickpeas

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
Gimme gimme more! Addictive. I love chickpeas and crunchy things, so this is perfect. I followed the user's advice who said they roasted them at 300 degrees for a half hour, shaking the pan every ten minutes. I've made them twice now; the first time I waited to oil 'em up until they'd roasted for the half hour, and just pre-seasoned them using the moistness they already had from being in the can. The second time I oiled them and added the seasoning right away, and they did take a few minutes longer to get crunchy, but that was the only tangible difference. I also seasoned them a lot less the second time (went a little cayenne crazy on the first batch) and decided that I like them far better spicy. Both times I used garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning and salt, as well as the cayenne. Will most definitely make these again soon!

Cauliflower Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
I love this! It's totally scrumptious. I grated some parmesan cheese in with the cheddar. Next time I might use some feta and mushrooms as well. I was impatient and didn't allow the potato crust to get crispy and brown, so the crust layer in tandem with the cheese tasted a lot like scalloped potatoes. If I ever serve this for breakfast, I'll double or triple the amount of egg and milk. Oh, and the basil and thyme are absolutely essential to the yumminess factor of this dish. I pulled it out of the oven and was so surprised at how amazing it smelled. The aroma was completely different from anything else I'd ever cooked, and I think a large part of it was due to the spices. I'm in love with this stuff, and I'll be making it again soon for sure.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
So good! Very moist. I doubled this recipe to make a lemon blueberry cake. I left the butter as 1/2 cup and added 1/4 cup of canola oil. I used 1 cup sugar, 1 cup Splenda, so I also added nonfat dry milk powder (1/2 c. milk powder and 1/2 tsp. baking soda per cup of Splenda) to make up for any lack of volume from the missing sugar. I added an extra cup of milk and lotsa lemon and vanilla extracts, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Frosted it with lemon cream cheese frosting. Super flavorful and delicious cake. Making this again soon!

Aloo Matar

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
I was pretty excited about making this recipe, but it ended up a semi-disaster. I'm not totally experienced with cooking with potatoes, so it might be my fault that I couldn't get my potatoes to cook in the wok. I ended up having to dump them into a microwave-safe bowl and nuke them until they were tender enough to finish cooking in the wok. I added extra seasoning as well. Maybe it was my inexperience with potato recipes, but this was very time consuming. I made this for a lunch with my then boyfriend, and he spent about an hour and a half in my living room watching Scrubs while I cursed at potatoes. Might make this again, but I'll partially cook the potatoes before adding them to the wok.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
So yummy! Rich, delicious, and so hard to mess up! My truffle dough kept getting dry and hard, so I had to nuke it a few times, but they still turned out scrumptious.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
Oh geez, these are delish! I used dried cranberries and dried currants instead of raisins, and everyone loved 'em. Definitely making these again soon.

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
Yum! This stuff is addictive. I used one c. brown sugar, one c. white. It came out a little crumbly/soft, so next time I'll probably try to get the temperature up to 300 degrees. But the main idea is that I will most definitely be making this again. Oh, and I've been told (and agree completely) that the semi-sweet chocolate overpowers the toffee a bit, so next time I'll use milk chocolate. Amazing recipe!

Fabulous Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
So good. I have to make this all the time from now on, because I'm addicted. I was kind of teetering on the edge of cilantro acceptance, and this recipe gave me the shove I needed. The taste of the cilantro wasn't overpowering like I thought it might be. All of the proportions were perfect; it wasn't too oily, too garlicky, or too..um, cilantro-y. The only thing I tweaked was the cayenne. I didn't have any, so I stuck some crushed red pepper flakes in the magic bullet and processed until they were mostly powdery. I think that probably made it slightly spicier than it would've been if I'd used cayenne, but some reviewers said it needed extra spice anyway, so hey! It all worked out, and it was delicious.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: May 26, 2007
I love these! They're the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I've tried. I didn't change the recipe at all, but I did use a tablespoon instead of 1/4 cup to scoop the dough, 'cause I didn't want the cookies to be huge. They turned out perfect!

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
I'm in love with this recipe! These cookies turned out perfect. My mom is allergic to peanuts, so I made them with soy nut butter. They're completely yummy! I almost wanna wake her up to get her to try one now. They're that awesome. But I'll wait until tomorrow. Thanks for the delicious and easy recipe. **Update: I made these with peanut butter finally! They were every bit as amazing as I thought they'd be. I took them to my boyfriend's house the first time I met his family, and they loved both the cookies and me! They all said the recipe is a definite keeper.

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
Yum. I decided to make these into bars instead of cookies, because of all the reviewers who said they had trouble shaping and moving the cookies. Like many of the others, I didn't have dates and opted for diced apples instead. I also added some cinnamon, allspice, Splenda brown, and mini chocolate chips. They turned out yummy and addictive. I'll definitely make these again and experiment with different add-ins.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: May 19, 2007
Awesome cookies. I've made these according to the exact recipe a few times, and they're incredible! I also use this recipe for sugar cookies; it's the only one I'll ever use. The only change I made is scaling down the cream of tartar to 1/4 tsp. I roll the dough out on a surface lightly sprinkled with powdered sugar, and make cut-outs. Then I sprinkle them with granulated sugar before baking. They're perfect! Thanks for this amazing recipe.

Chickpea and Couscous Delight

Reviewed: May 19, 2007
Oh my gosh. This stuff is yum. Of course the one time we don't have garbanzos in the house is when I decide to make this. So I substituted a can of peas, and it's amazing. I also added some pimientos, and used canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh. Next time I'll use garbanzos and fresh 'maters, but I'm definitely keeping the peas in there. Very delicious recipe. Thanks!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
This recipe was amazing! I made a few changes to make it a bit healthier; I used 2 c. Splenda, 1/2 c. dark brown sugar, 2 c. all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour, and 1 c. applesauce instead of oil. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla extract. I thought the clove taste was a bit overpowering, so next time I'll try 3/4 teaspoon cloves and 2 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
