Chef John's Perfect Prime Rib

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2015
This is my go-to method for prime rib! I have a son with Asperger's who is very, very particular about what he will and won't eat, and he absolutely LOVES prime rib. The only thing I do different is I use 2tsp crushed garlic rather than herbes de Provence. I mix the garlic with butter and kosher salt, and spread over the roast before cooking. It's wonderful!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2014
It makes very pretty, huge cookies, but they are WAY too sweet and rather bland. My kids loved them.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2014
I do tweak this recipe, but the basics are the same. I make a paste using 1T olive oil, 1T kosher salt, 1/4tsp black pepper, 1/2t rosemary, 1/2t dried thyme. Cover the roast with the paste (top, bottom, both ends) and I cook just as directed. I have never had a bad roast using this method!

Rolled Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
Delicious dumplings. I recommend rolling them out as thin as possible (around 1/8" or less) before cutting, or they will be too heavy. Rolling them out 1/16"-1/8" gives you a light, noodle-like dumpling. These are NOT the puffy, biscuit dumplings. These are dense and taste more like homemade pasta.

Pecan Pie Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I didn't like this very much. The "cookie crust" was quite floury and, the chewy part didn't taste like pecan pie. They were alright, but the texture was way off. They were a bit dry and just kind of bland. This isn't what I was looking for in a pecan pie bar.

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
Very good, but I found it is much better if you add 1/2 cup of malted milk powder to the mixture! It makes for a richer hot cocoa.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread I

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Very tasty bread, with a rich, chewy center. The only problem I ran into was that it was really dry the next day. I was a little disappointed in that. Maybe I'll try using not as much flour next time.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
I would give this recipe more than 5 stars if I could! I consider myself a pretty good cook, especially when it comes to sweets, but I have never been able to make a good banana bread until this recipe came along. I prepared just as the recipe is written with no substitutions or additions, and it was perfect. Stayed moist for days.

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
I prepared these as the recipe was written, and they were very good. The only problem I had was that they were not as sweet as I would have liked. I will definitely make them again, but I'll be adding a bit more sugar next time.

Apple Crisp Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
I followed the instructions, but the apple filling made the bottom of the cups completely soggy, and they fell apart as I removed them from the muffin tins. Not sure what I could have done differently. The taste was pretty good, but there is no way I could have served them to anyone.

Eclairs II

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
An "okay" recipe, but not what I was hoping for. The pastry fell and turned out soggy on the inside, and tasted very "eggy". I didn't modify or change any ingredients. Also, I would suggest a simple ganache instead of this chocolate icing. It tasted rather gritty, and took quite a lot of mixing to get out all the lumps from the confectioners sugar.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
These were good, but they ended up being very flat and thin. I've made them twice now, thinking that maybe I'd done something wrong the first time around, but they were just as flat the second time. I'm not sure what's up with that, but I'll keep experimenting.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
Delicious! I just added about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the sugar mixture, and it came out fantastic!

The Perfect Cream Cheese Pie Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
I really don't like giving bad reviews, but I followed this recipe to the letter, and this dough was very sticky and I found it impossible to roll it out. No matter how much flour I used, it stuck to the counter and to my rolling pin. I tried adding a little more flour, to the dough, but that only made it tear easily. I tried chilling it, and it got crumbly. I was disappointed. Perhaps others will have better luck than I did, but I won't be trying this again.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
This bread was really, really good. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it was a little bit heavier than what I was looking for, and the texture wasn't quite as fine as I wanted. I've made it three times now, and each time it seems to be better than the last, so maybe practice makes perfect. I did try something new this time, though. Instead of punching down the dough, I gently pressed it out and rolled it into a loaf for the loaf pan. That seemed to help with the heaviness factor, though it made the texture less fine.

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
Fantastic brownies! My kids absolutely loved them. The only thing I didn't like about these was that they were very thin. I used an 8x8 baking pan, and they were still only about 3/4" thick. I may double the recipe next time and see if that does the trick.

Grandma's Egg Custard Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
This pie is okay. Not great. Not terrible. Boring. It just didn't have a lot of flavor. If I decide to make this again, next time I'll add 2tsp of vanilla instead of the 1tsp called for in the recipe. It needs something more to perk it up.

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
Delicious recipe! It's much lighter and not as sickeningly sticky sweet as the pecan pie I'm used to. The only downside is that the top is not as "pretty" and appetizing as the other pecan pies I've seen. All in all, it's a very good pie, though!

Lemon Icebox Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
The first time I made this, it was terrible, but I tweaked it a bit, and found that adding the zest of 2 lemons to the mixture gives it more of a zing without adding tartness. Also, you have to let the pie refrigerate for at least 24 hours before it is fully set. I tried cutting it 3 hours after I made it, and it was still runny... but the next day, it was perfect. If you're not a meringue person (I don't care for it), try topping the pie with fresh, lightly sweetened whipped cream!
