Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Cakey cookies are usually not my favorite but these are divine. They are very chocolatey - I worried at first that there was too much cocoa, so if you're not into that cocoa taste, I would recommend cutting back on it just a bit. I plan on using this recipe as the base of all of my chocolate cookies, now. I added just a bit of buckeye sugar (peanut butter powder and sugar) to the dough for a slightly nutty flavor and also added a cup of dark chocolate chips to make double chocolate cookies. I can't wait to try other variations!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
This was my first time making my own pizza dough from scratch and I was drawn to how easy this recipe was! I used 2 1/4 tsp of yeast as someone suggested, since I had jarred yeast. And I didn't have bread flour, so I used 1 C self-rising flour and 1.5 cups wheat flour. I didn't roll out the dough very flat, so it was thicker and fluffier than I would have liked, but it was still delicious. I added some parsley, oregano, garlic powder, red pepper, and parmesan to add a little flavor - as I would do when making dough from a mix. Lots of oregano and garlic really punch it up! Great experience and I will use this recipe again.

Beer Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
First, the changes I made: I replaced the 1/4 cup shortening with 3/8 cup of margarine. I added around 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (but I didn't end up tasting it). I also made these drop biscuits b\c I'm a lazy person. I used Leinenkugel's Red Lager as my beer. I was very pleasantly surprised with how these turned out! They are a little on the salty side but I think it really works. Some reviewers found the biscuits to be rather dry - and I could see how that could happen but the margarine (and upped dosage) really helped! These have a very buttery taste. I ate them with chili and they were great! Now I can't wait to slather some whipped honey on them to see how they taste with that! While I could taste the beer, I found it to be rather subtle. The beer flavor intensifies as they cool but I think even a beer-loather could appreciate the layer of complexity it adds to the flavor. All in all, a worthy Saturday morning breakfast treat!

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
I added a dash of cinnamon to these as well as a dash of pumpkin spice. I ended up rolling them out and using cookie cutters, and sprinkled colored sugar on top. These cookies are absolutely amazing. Everyone who had some loooooved them. I also ended up with about 3 dozen cookies.

Eggnog Cookies III

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
I tried a few different suggestions, playing with the amount of flour, etc. but could never get the consistency on these quite right.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
After my first bite, I was not impressed. By the time I finished the cookie, I knew I wouldn't be able to stop at one. These were amazing! Even my boyfriend who doesn't generally like gingerbread couldn't get enough of them. My changes: I only had 1/2 cup of margarine, so I adjusted the recipe accordingly. I also made the balls smaller, so I still wound up with 24 cookies. I also used whole wheat flour, added a little brown sugar, and added a little nutmeg. The dough was a bit sticky, even after 15 minutes in the fridge, so I followed one reviewer's advice and sprayed my hands with oil. I was then able to handle it with no problem. These cookies came out perfectly and are a new favorite!

Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
(Instead of doing the rolling method, I placed a half slice of apple from apple pie filling in the middle of a piece of batter in the muffin tins and still used the cinnamon mixture in the bottom and then some on top.) I was super pleasantly surprised by how delicious these were! I think another reviewer compared them to Hardee's cinnamon rolls...All I know is that they definitely have the texture and taste of a professionally made cinnamon roll I've had somewhere else. I love yeast cinnamon rolls, too, but this was so easy to make and I can hardly stop eating them...it's going to be difficult for me to go back to making 'em the long way.

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I messed these up the first time I attempted them but the second time, they were fantastic. Here are the modifications I made: I used all whole wheat flour, used partially diluted condensed milk (as opposed to regular milk or fully diluted condensed milk), added some garlic powder to the mix and made drop cookies, as my margarine was a little melted and the dough was soft and sticky. I was worried this would be a problem but they still turned out amazingly fluffy and delicious.

Snickerdoodles II

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
I ended up having to use margarine instead of shortening and then chose to use half whole wheat flour and the cookies still turned out delicious. I can imagine how much better they would be with shortening! (I also added 1 tsp vanilla and a little cinnamon into the mix itself.)

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
I had just moved and did not have baking soda or powder when I made these but they still turned out delicious which is a true testament to the recipe. I added a drop of cinnamon extract and a drop of honey (I would take back the honey, though - it was too dark) to bring up the complexity just a bit. These cookies were top notch.

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
I didn't have any broccoli when I tried this recipe and ended up just using onion. I also added blue cheese. This quiche was incredibly delicious and ended up being just as good reheated (both microwaved and in a toaster oven). I plan on making it again next week.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
I use this recipe all of the time and have made a plethora of alterations, depending on my mood. I've used white cake mix, chocolate cake mix, added peanut butter, added coffee, etc. It always turns out perfectly and everyone else always eats them up.
