Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
Fantastic! Had a craving for brownies and this was super easy to make. I added a handful of chocolate chips to it and realized that I forgot an put in the full amount of flour instead of cutting back like others suggested. I added a handful of chocolate melts to see if it would thin it out a little but it didn't. I baked in a glass dish and it came out BEAUTIFULLY!!!! Tastes awesome!!!!

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
These cookies are ridiculously easy to make - I did not chill them before baking, I just tried to handle them as little as possible. Super soft and the family chowed down right away! Lots of variations from adding an extract to topping with candies/chocolates and all are super tasty!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
THESE ARE FANTASTIC!!!! I made these just the way it's written and everyone gobbled them up in my house. I made a second batch which I put out on a couple of cookie sheets in the freezer. Once they were individually frozen, I put them all in a freezer bag - the kids buttered them, poured on some homemade syrup and zapped them in the microwave for 30 seconds - they still taste great :)

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
THIS IS FABULOUS! It's a simple recipe that you can add to or eat AS IS :) I followed the recommendations of TEVANS211 and didn't change a thing...except a little vanilla. I did beat my eggs and then add milk, melted butter and vanilla but since my butter was warm I didn't mix it with the eggs til after the milk. I double sifted which made them SO fluffy - everyone loved them and we made an extra batch to freeze :)

Sourdough Starter

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
VERY easy to make - I used a mason jar and followed the advice to put it in a pan in the oven with the light on when I went to work. When I walked in the door 8 hours later, my husband came to me and gently said, "I think something went wrong with what you were cooking" because it had overflowed into the pan generously. I'm glad others advised to feed it - I've had it out for a little over a week now and I've been feeding it every morning and evening 1/4 or 1/3 cup flour and warm water. When I baked with it yesterday, I used a whole cup and I'm back to overflowing today.

San Francisco Sourdough Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I made these 2 ways at the same time to make small soup bowls in larger cupcake molds for TDay dinner. One batch I made with the modifications KendraSF suggested. One batch was made the way they've written but no onions. I consider myself an intermediate break maker and do it at least weekly if not more... Both mixed fairly easily but the modified one was a LOT tougher than the other; when they were left to rise, the modified batch rose round but bumpy and the other batch rose nice and soft looking. I had to put some in the fridge overnight and the nonmodifed batch sank a little. Both baked nicely and looked great with egg yolk - a nice touch (we noticed a couple that didn't get it and they weren't as pretty) and both sets tasted GREAT! For a soup bowl, the modified was much denser and held up better, but overall I'd say it's a fabulous recipe!

Oatmeal Sourdough Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
ehhh these were only so so. I think the other reviewers made me think it was going to be something special but it seemed like more effort than it was worth. They didn't rise very well and were very heavy for my tastes. I also made the San Francisco sour dough at the same time and it was fabulous. . .maybe that's why this scored so low?

Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
AWESOME!!! I made these last minute for a bake sale and they were the biggest seller :D I did take previous reviewers advice and added more graham crackers and chocolate chips to it. My personal preference is less powdered sugar as well but everyone else seemed to like it just fine. Thanks!

Paneer

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
I've been looking for an easy way to make Paneer ever since I learned to cook. Paneer was the only thing I would eat as a child (I'm South Indian) and I've got fond memories of it. My aunt told me to bake ricotta cheese and I didn't like the sound of it. . .I was a little apprehensive of this recipe because it looked to easy. BUT WOW! It IS that easy! Actually, it's easier than the recipe indicates - as another reviewer suggested - skip the food processor. Use cheesecloth in your colander when you go to separate the whey from the water. Tie the opposing corners together and hang it over the sink for an hour or so. Once it stops dripping, wrap it up tightly in plastic to help preserve the moisture. You will need to brown it a little before using, but it tastes good uncooked to. As other reviewers have said - use WHOLE milk - the fattier the milk, the more whey you'll get.

Spinach Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
I noticed there were no reviews from someone saying they are Indian. So here I am. I tried this out because I was curious about the creamed corn base - all of my curries use tomatoes. I used the ingredients requested with 3 exceptions. 1 - garlic salt 2 - a can of diced tomatoes because the corn started sticking 3 - homemade paneer instead of tofu - but only because I had none, I've used tofu in curry before & as other reviewers have said, you need to brown it first with a little bit of oil, then take it out of the pan while you move onto the onions. I always put the cheese/tofu in last so they stay whole. In regards to curry paste. I noticed quite a few who were unable to use it reviewed a few years back. In the past 2 or 3 years, most major grocers carry curry paste - it's different from curry sauce. Also, other reviewers have mentioned this, the brand makes a HUGE difference. I only use Patak's. I'm always trying different brands because I like to think of myself as a lover of shortcuts - curry paste is one of them. I've used Patak's faithfully ever since I left my parents and missed authentic South Indian cooking (spicy flavorful & spicy hot). I used a medium hot paste because I'm not sure how much my 18 month can do - it must have been just right because she inhaled it as did my 5 year old. As far as measurements go - I don't use them. The beauty of curry is it's YOUR special blend. I'm writing home about this one!

OREO® and Fudge Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
It's not a Carvel or Baskins Robbins cake that's for sure! I was VERY disappointed with this cake - I made 2 versions, and both got rave reviews from everyone else. I guess I'm just an ice cream snob. I made both cakes at the same time, I used 1lb of crushed oreos and 1 larger tub of light cool whip with 2 boxes of sugar free chocolate pudding. I discovered while making them, it's a bad idea to make 2 at the same time. The ice cream bars melt FAST! So ended up sticking the one for Father's Day back in the freezer til this morning to make. Because it was so sloppy, I thought that was why yesterday's cake came out bad. This morning I ran out and bought more oreos and simply sandies. I added more milk to the pudding mix (it had been refrigerated) to thin it out and added more cookies since they disappeared overnight and I wanted there to be some crunch. The second cake looked tons better but you still have to work fast - also transporting is a little harder because the ice cream bars I got melted so quickly. Even people on idets had 2nds of the cake today, but I still didn't care for it - it was too soft. I prefer ice cream cakes that are more solid and with a crunch like Carvel & Baskin Robbins.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
These were great! I didn't realize I had very little chocolate chips on hand so I melted a couple of leftover Hershey Crisp bars from the treat jar. It came out great and the crispies were a nice addition. People commented it tasted like peanut butter cups to them without me saying anything - I had a hard time getting them out of the pan with the chocolate still attached to the peanut butter, but I think that was because of the way I melted it.

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
I personally didn't care for this but my husband raved about it. I put it in the slow cooker and pretty much followed the directions - I only added dill - it was a bit soupy for my taste. But I like my mouth on fire in a bowl where the spoon sticks up on it's own.

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
This will be a staple in our house - we used muenster, pepperjack, cheddar, & colby and whole wheat pasta. It turned out great! I also made an extra pan and froze it in plastic containers for future lunches and it heats up wonderfully!

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
Excellent! I made this for my inlaws Easter celebration - I left it in a bag to marinate while I went to Church and put it on the grill when I got to their house. It crisped up nicely and the cheese was a great add. EVERYONE gobbled it up fast!

Lobster Newburg

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
THIS IS AWESOME! Since moving to the midwest I've missed out on my favorite dish - Seafood Newburg. I found this and thought I'd make it for my birthday - I strayed because I was looking for seafood and not just lobster - so I used fresh lobster, crab and scallops (as fresh as you'll get in the midwest) plus a bag of salad shrimp. I also added in mushrooms because they needed to be used up and it turned out fabulous. My husband even thought it was better than the stuff I used to get on the East Coast. I served them over Puff Pastry Shells with asparagus and riesling wine! SUPER!

Nana's Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
This sauce is AWESOME! I didn't have onion on hand, so I used dehydrated chopped onions and onion salt instead of the celery salt. I added cayenne pepper and chili powder (didn't realize it at the time), dill weed and about 1 cup of Sam Adams Winter Brew. Of course it was pretty spicy because of the first two additives so I put in another 1/4 cup or so of brown sugar and a good long squeeze of ketchup to bring it down a notch (and that's when the beer got added too). It came out BEAUTIFULLY!

Best Cheesecake on Earth

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
This is THE BEST! I've made all sorts of variations on it and have always had a great cheesecake. I've made it gluten free by using featherlight mix, I've added raspberry flavorings, I've sprinkled chocolate chips on top after it's done. . . I've made it diabetic for the old people in my family by using Splenda, I've used egg alternatives for the same old people - it always comes out great. The only thing I didn't like was using soy flour instead of all purpose - but everyone else liked it. Also, I've learned you can only make them on one shelf at a time - in other words, if you can fit 3 in one pan on the top shelf go for it, but don't put one on the top shelf and one on the bottom shelf. Both come out mushy and not set at all.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
They took forever to make but it was worth it. I used whole wheat flour which made them "meatier". Also I used the cream cheese icing from this site with it. SUPER!

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
Not really fluffy like I was looking for. But not horrible either - the family loved it and asked for more.
