Banana Oatmeal Cookies III

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2014
Made it almost as stated except was short on shortening so I used 1/4 c applesauce. Also added a touch of cardamon and dried cranberries. I did, however, forget to add the oatmeal! The second half I got some in there and honestly? Either way was good! Soft and chewy, cake-like and great flavor!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
Easy, light, crisp, delicious! I left out the salt as my pistachios were salted and I was really glad I did. I also used 1/8 c olive and 1/8c veggie oil because I was concerned about it tasting ' olive oily'. Came out fantastic and one of the easiest things EVER!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2013
These are so perfect I wish I had more stars! Beautifully crisp but somehow still chewy they are amazing! I've started playing with other stuff: chopped peanuts (or crunch peanut butter) add texture and so do mini chocolate chips (full size don't have time to melt in like the mini's do!) So so very good!

German Chocolate Cake Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2013
While the flavor is really good, the color seems somewhat off and it so didn't set!! I must have added at least a 1/3 cup of corn starch to get it to set and then there seemed to be a predominate eggy flavor. Once it cooled, it mostly set up and the eggy flavor was lost in the cake but it wasn't what I'd hoped for.

Mincemeat Pie Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
This makes a TON of filling and I used it to make mini pies. It freezes well too and I used it two years in a row now...really good!

Fudge Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
The cookie was quite bland. The fudge was good but didn't melt with the raspberry jam so it was an awkward eat. I did a few with peanut butter instead of raspberry and it actually worked a bit better. still..nothing I would do again for the cost and time involved.

Orange Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Really a nice flavor. Found that they were a little more crumbly than I would have liked. Also, makes a NICE bread. We did half the batch as muffins and half the batch as bread!

Chocolate Mocha Cake I

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
So dense and moist and so so perfect. I made the mocha frosting, with a tablespoon of Kahlua added and it was so good I nearly licked the plate! Add in the fact that it's easy to make...definitely a keeper!

Coffee Icing

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
Very, very nice! Even using very strong coffee (it had legs...ugh) it wasn't quite strong enough for me in the mocha department so I added a tablespoon of Kahlua. I had to force myself not to lick the daubs of frosting off the counter. Man, this is soooo good!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
Really nice! Fluffy, light and the perfect mix of sweet for the topping. I did add a 1/4 tsp cardamom just to give them a little more kick. I also did this as a bread, which worked...but it didn't cook as evenly as bread as I would have liked. Very nice!

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
Nice flavor. Very peanut-buttery. However, also a little cakier than I'd like. I dumped come choc chips (dark chocolate) in and then made Satiny Chocolate Glaze from this site for the top. I think they're pretty good, my husband loves them and since he's the /real/ peanut butter fan, I'm adding a star over what I would normally have.

Mike's Signature Pretzel Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Really really good. Chewy, slightly salty...really nice. Didn't change anything except I made smaller individual sized rolls (8).

Raspberry Balsamic Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
This was really good. I did add a touch extra raspberry (home made...mmm) and a pinch of powdered mustard. Also, when I first tried it I tried to half the recipe...doesn't work. Make the whole batch, it's good and should keep well. The only other thing I did was put everything but the oil in, whisked it then slowly added the oil so it would emulsify and not separate. It came out perfect! And the longer it sits, the better the flavor.

Baked Honey Nut Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
This was amazing! I too cooked it a little more slowly to make sure the chicken didn't get dry and it didn't. It was perfect. I did have to use half almonds and half pecans as I didn't have enough of either on hand but it was great. Also, I cut it up and put in on a salad with dried cranberries...I don't remember the last time I ate salad without dressing!!

Stabilized Whipped Cream Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
This worked beautifully! Two small things: Did a double batch so used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 confectioners. Don't know that it really made any difference. Also, dissolved the gelatin on the stove, I felt like I had more control over it than in the micro. It spread and handled perfectly though even in my chilly PA kitchen I did feel like i had to work fast. After frosting, I set it in the fridge and it set up and STAYED set up! I have an angel food/raspberry cake I make whipping cream for frosting and will be using this in the future. One note....flavoring (vanilla) can be switched up to suit the need of the cake or omitted all together. Great recipe! Thanks!

Italian Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
These made me look brilliant...even though I goofed and only put 2 packages of yeast, they came up beautifully! I added a pinch of sugar to the yeast, so maybe that helped. The bottoms got a little bit too hard, I'd cut back a few minutes of cook time next time. Also, I didn't use these as big bread bowls. I cut it into 12 pieces and made individual dinner rolls to go with my thinner soup. Perfect and so EASY!
