Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This recipe is great, albeit a bit too chocolatey (weird coming from a chocoholic like me). Next time, I might sub milk chocolate chips for the 1 cup semisweet chips stirred in at the end. Rolled mine in powdered sugar before baking to try and offset the slight bitterness, and they look gorgeous. Also, for those with spreading issues, it's a must with this or ANY cookie recipe to chill the dough overnight! And bake on parchment-lined cookie sheets. I've always had picture-perfect results with the chilled dough and parchment, even in my terrible electric oven.

Pumpkin Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
Made this for the boyfriend, who is a pumpkin fiend. Satisfied his pumpkin craving (as well as the cravings of his 4 other roommates!) without the hassle of baking a pie! I'll definitely be making this again. I used heart shaped cookie cutters for cute shapes and ate the scraps myself :-)

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Wow. Cookies are nice and soft! I used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar. I like to roll them in superfine sugar (not powdered) and sprinkle a little more over the tops before baking. Nice, crackled, sparkly appearance! For me, it was 350 for 12 minutes, perfection. Only 4 stars, though, because they weren't quite spicy enough. Next time I'll add some fresh grated ginger for an extra kick!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
This recipe turned out perfectly! Gooey on the bottom, chewy on top, everything a good brownie should be :-) Definitely not too sweet for my tastes, but maybe I just have an overly sweet tooth. I did use a mix of mini semi sweet chips and milk chocolate chips (stray leftovers from other recipes). Didn't seem to matter--they both melted into the dough, making it even more chocolatey and delicious.

Sweet Potato Apple Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
I'm always looking for new ways to enjoy sweet potatoes (easily my favorite vegetable), and I really enjoyed this salad! I cut the oil in half and omitted the minced onion (green onions gave it enough onion flavor for me). It's an interesting and healtier take on sweet potatoes!

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
This was great and very easy! I added some chopped broccoli, shredded carrots, and matchstick strips of red and green peppers for some added veggie nutrition. The sesame flavor was not overpowering, but next time, I may add some sesame oil to the dressing to make it a bit more noticeable. I might also add a bit of chili sauce for some kick.

Banana Bread Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
These cookies REALLY spread, so be careful! I even refrigerated the dough to prevent this from happening, but it still spreads and burns easily. Flavor and texture were okay, but I won't be making these again, sorry!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
This really is THE BEST recipe ever. No fail. Just make sure you follow the recipe to the "T," and you'll get nice cookies! I chilled the dough overnight, and they didn't spread for me at all. I also creamed the butter and sugar for a few minutes, makes for a more tender cookie.

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
Delicious, wouldn't change a thing, except I dissolved a teaspoon of cornstarch in a bit of the broth after adding the rice and chicken to thicken the soup a little. After that addition, the consistency is what I was looking for--thick, creamy, and comforting. Just like what you'd find at the local Greek diner!

Banana Margaritas

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
WOW. I don't even like margaritas, but these were amazing. The banana really makes it creamy and delicious--try this recipe if you like tropical drinks! I was thinking of adding some orange juice next time and experimenting with the frozen concentrate.

Orange Slice Cookies II

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
The flavor was DELICIOUS, don't get me wrong. But the cookies spread too much and came out flat as pancakes! I think next time I'll increase the flour/butter ratio and add some baking powder so they rise some. Snipping the orange candy and dunking them in flour was also a great tip--not too tedious, SO worth it.

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
These are the best! My only complaint is minor. The shortbread crust is a bit crumbly, but they are delicious! Also, just a suggestion for the reviewers having a hard time with the caramel layer: cook it as the directions say, then take a spoonful of the caramel mixture and drop into a glass of cold water. It should be at the "soft ball" stage, so it should hold its shape when cool. If you cook it too long, you'll get toffee out of it (the "hard crack" stage), and if you don't cook it enough, it will be soupy. You'll know when it's at the consistency you want--I don't own a candy thermometer because this method never fails :-)

Sweet Potato Casserole VI

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
Wow. This is the best-tasting sweet potato recipe I've had in a long time (and I have an infatuation with sweet potatoes!). Next time, though, I don't think I'll add butter to the mashed sweet potatoes. They don't need it, it just made it kinda greasy. The milk and sugar are enough.

Banana Nut Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
Great flavor, but the layers were really sticky and hard to frost. Maybe I should have stuck with the glaze from in the recipe (I just used a regular buttercream frosting). They were also very flat, almost like banana-flavored pancakes.
