Stephen's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
I followed the recipe until the chips and nuts came in. Instead of all that chocolate, I used a cup and a half of dark chocolate, 1/3 cup of cranberries and 1/3 of crushed walnuts. Not too sweet, just right. My wife said it was not too sweet. Even my wife liked it. Feel free to try it.

Chef John's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
This by far is the best banana bread out there, taken if you love chocolate like my family does. Great banana bread taste, chocolate complements the sweet bread and makes it more moist. TIP: Only make by hand. If you use a Kitchen Aid, unless you know when to stop, it turn into mush in the middle that will never bake out. Do not over mix this recipe. You don't have to worry if you mix it by hand.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2013
I made this for neighbors who helped me in my family's fire. My next door neighbor loved it and here is what I did: Based on a cookie I had a local bagel joint, I added a cup of white chocolate chips to the recipie. It made it a touch sweeter and otherwise complemented the bread in a good way. I also, in the refurbished house, I had baking powder and no baking soda (I have it now), so I went online and tripled the baking powder and cut out half teaspoon of salt. Unbelievably moist and a hearty bread. I fully recommend it. You will score points at a family gathering. Try the cup of white chocolate chips. Score, indeed!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
This is a simple, but well received Pumpkin bread. I had my sister in law come up from Tennesse with her husband to my sister's house, so I took two loaves and kept one for my family. The sweet bread was still warm two hours later as I wrapped two loaves in foil 10 minutes after I took if out of the oven. The pumpkin comes in first, along with a hint of cinnamon, but it is the nutmeg that pops in your mouth. Delicious. The cloves come in last. Delicious, simple and warm. I would make this again. Watching the video helped in the process. I added the dry into the wet, but slowly. Cheers!

Potato Kugel

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
Light and fluffy this potato kugel was a hit with my wife and teenage daughter. Only thing I would do differently is to cut the onion smaller. I cooked it 15 minutes more until the larger onions were cooked. The flavor profile was delicious. Thanks again for a yummy recipie. Note: I used sour cream for dipping. Perfect.

Butternut Squash Soup with a Kick

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
This soup rocks! The hot hits on the back end of the taste. Spicy with a cream sauce is always muted, so this recipie goes in the sweet, hot category. I have a hand mixer, so the job was relatively easy, after getting the squash cut and mixed. Try this. With a little bit of effort, you will get a wonderful and different soup. Not for the faint hearted in the kitchen, or the people who like bland.

Double Chocolate Chip Macadamia Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
This cookie rocks! It is like getting a great chocolate chip cookie, soft and yummy, and adding macadamia nuts. My oven runs hot, so I cut the temp by 25 degrees, used minimum time (8) and turned the cookies half way. I made them for a church sale, so I made 96 of em. Turned out great!

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This was a big hit at the Thanksgiving table. I already had the ingredients from making a Jewish apple cake. Sugar, butter, cinamamon and nutmeg, that's it. The cooking time carmelizes the sugar and you would swear there is brown sugar in this recipie. I hand cut the yams into 3/4 inch slices, some in half, giving a quarter moon effect. This is delicious.

Jewish Apple Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Very moist and a great cinnamon taste throughout but not overbearing. I would use the glaze, it adds to the favor of the cake. Great for church events, family events and more. A real keeper. I would back off the time, just a bit, but our over runs hot.

Bacon and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
This is a nice light potato soup. I used some of the bacon grease as someone had suggested and have a hand blender, blending about half the potatoes to give it a nice auburn, yellow color. I also used regular chicken stock and regular Cheddar cheese to add to the flavor and center-cut bacon.

Pasta e Fagioli I

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
I added ground beef, forgot the salt and added a few crushed red pepper flakes, then added a touch of salt. This made the soup a sweet, hardy, delicious soup. I also cut the ham chunks small after reading one review that the ham was tough. I learned in culinary school that it is important to keep the vegatables and meats cut uniformly, so that they will cook uniformly. My wife and I went back for thirds, my 14 years old seconds.

Raisin Spice Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
This is a moist dense cake. Adding back the raisin liquid was genius and the raisins are moist, too. The first time I made it was for a church dinner and it was one of 30 desserts, but those who ate it, loved it. I made it a week later for a family party and those who love raisin based baked goods loved it. Not a sweet, sweet cake, but delicious. A good fall cake. Bravo. I will make it again and again.

Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Wow. I made these burgers for my wife and I for our Memorial Day barbecue. The burgers were juicy and almost every bite featured blue cheese at almost every bite. I substituted green onion for the chives. Outstanding! I will make these again. Five stars!

Pumpkin Bread VI

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
This pumpkin bread is a not-to-sweet treat, starring pumpkin and a cameo by orange juice. The wheat flour reminds me of breads long ago, My 13-year-old daughter anxiously awaited to eat this bread as I mader it at night. I convinced her to wait til the next morning. She ate it all, but slowly. Not like chocolate, this moist cake will have you coming back for more.

Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
This dish rocks! I peeled two potatoes and diced them, as directed. I also put foil over the skillet to melt the cheese and it did not take long to melt. I also used thick cut bacon. Yum o licious!

Peanut Butter Cookies VII

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
This cookie turned out great, however, personally, I might back off on the sugar. My 13-year-old daughter and my mother in law, both sweet freaks, loved this cookie. I am developing a different palate and thought the cookie was a bit sweet. The composition of the cookie turned out fine. I do admit though, my Kitchen Aide always makes fine batter. My wife told me to use the paddle attachment when making a batter.
