Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
Very, very good! The only changes I made were using less cinnamon, added a bit of nutmeg, a couple drops of red food coloring, and baked at 265 for 11 minutes as another reviewer suggested. I'm in the middle of baking batches for a Halloween party this weekend and I'm positive they will be popular. I loved how they baked, as well –– perfect little round cake-like cookies (I just dropped spoonfuls), and no sticking to the cookie sheet!

Hearty Multigrain Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
I've made probably a dozen batches of this bread, used it for loaves, rolls and pizzas, and it never disappoints. It's also a great starting point for experimenting (for example, oatmeal or nuts or grain mixes instead of the suggested combination, honey or maple syrup instead of brown sugar). This is definitely my favorite bread recipe!

Lemony Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
I found it to be pretty much inedible –– the sauce was very bland except an extreme bitterness, perhaps from too much lemon, to the point that I couldn't enjoy it. (My boyfriend could eat it with a lot of hot sauce, but he eats everything.) I think it would be improved if only half a lemon was used, plus the addition of some honey and a fresh herb like parsley or rosemary.

Lemon Sugar Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
I've made this recipe a whole bunch of times, and they've been perfect! I've done it both with lemon extract, and substituting fresh lemon zest/juice as well. The longer you leave them in the fridge, the less they'll spread and the more of a sugar cookie texture they'll have. Sometimes I make the dough a day or two ahead, just make sure you let it warm up a bit before trying to use - it gets rock solid!

Healthy and Delicious Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
I love this crust, I use it for more than just cherry pie just by altering a bit (white sugar instead of brown, adding nuts, etc). One thing I did to change this recipe was I cooked the cherries over the stovetop for a few minutes and added some almond extract.

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
So good! The only alterations I made were to add a couple handfuls of dried cranberries and some fresh rosemary. My boyfriend is crazy for it.

Miss Beth's Yoghurt Cake

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
I altered the recipe slightly, as well. I used 2 eggs instead of 3, added a little vanilla, used 1/2 tsp of baking powder instead of yeast and split the 1/2 cup vegetable into 1/4 cup olive oil and 1/4 cup margarine. I also added the zest of a lemon, and it turned out a wonderfully light lemony dream. To make it into more of a dessert I made a lemon glaze by heating a tablespoon of margarine, a tsp of vanilla and the juice of the lemon I zested over low heat. Then I dumped in a bunch of confectioner's sugar until I got the consistency I wanted. I can't wait to try other versions of this recipe! Maybe next time I'll add dried cranberries or cherries and almond slivers...

Anginetti

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
Not what my Italian great grandmother used to make, but still pretty darned good. I used a cookie press so they sticky dough was easy to work with and had no problems.

Blueberry Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
I like the healthy base of this recipe but wanted a more dessert-y muffin, so I altered the recipe. I excluded blueberries in exchange for a third cup each of chopped bittersweet chocolate and walnuts, plus a little cinnamon and vanilla. I also added a banana and exchanged the regular sugar for brown sugar to help with the dryness. They turned out a little dry still, but remind me of the cross between a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie and banana bread (without as much fat and sugar!). They were a great treat for my health-conscious family, thank you!
