Gingerbread Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
i have to strongly disagree with firefly's recommendations. first: biscotti are an italian cookie, and italians rarely use butter in their cooking. and honestly, for those with cholesterol issues, oil is the better choice anyway! second: there is no reason to change the directions for mixing the dough. most cookie recipes call for mixing fat and sugar, then adding eggs and any liquid flavorings, and last mixing in the dry ingredients (which have been stirred together) about 1/3 at a time. do not mix thoroughly each time you add the dry ingredients - you should still see a bit of unmixed flour when you add the next bit. that being said, these are wonderful cookies! i did add some chopped pecans and raisins that i soaked in triple sec before mixing in - i like little crunchy, chewy nuggets in my biscotti - and i dredged the slices in cinnamon sugar before the second baking, to give them a bit more crunch. even my rather fussy 18-year old likes these!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
they were ok, but way too sweet i thought. maybe i'll try them again and leave out the brown sugar.

Cheater Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
i would rather eat my pancakes dry than with this syrup. i tried to give this zero stars. anyone who thinks that this can replace maple syrup has no taste buds (and i am no particular fan of maple syrup!)

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
i made these for a pot luck, and while they were well received, i would not call them "spicy". i made them appetizer sized and got about 40 little cakes. i sprayed the cakes with olive oil and browned them in a non-stick skillet, which gave them a nice crispy crust without any mess (or risk of burning!) i did add a second egg - they would have been too dry without - and i used gluten-free breadcrumbs. will definitely make again!

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
very good waffles. i made this with buttermilk, and the batter was too thick so i added a bit more. made 18 small round waffles.

Cottage Cheese Loaf I

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
i made this tonight because i had my 14 month-old granddaughter overnight, and i needed to make something that wasn't pasta that she could eat with just two teeth! this was ok...she loved it, but it's very bland, so i think that i'll add some 'meatier' seasonings next time, but i'm sure that i will try it again!

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
i followed serena's advice about the spicing, and it came out quite well. i did not end up adding the cayenne because it seemed as if the black pepper added a nice underlying heat, and i figure that diners who want more heat can add pepper sauce to taste. it does make a generous 12-cup pot, so be prepared to either feed a small army or freeze a lot!

Ellen's Buffalo Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
this was pretty good, but a little dry - probably because bison has basically no fat. i made a couple of very small changes: i used double fiber whole wheat bread (it was what i had), and i made it into four individual loaves (easier leftovers.) i will probably give it a little bit of spicing up when i make it again.

Chewy Crispy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
very good! the only change that i made was to reduce the coconut to 1 cup (it just made sense to have them all the same!) i also used a very small ice cream scoop to measure them out, so i got 58 cookies, and they took about 7 minutes to bake. my daughter and her boyfriend just ate the entire first pan right out of the oven (18 cookies!)

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
i am so excited to find this recipe! someone brought this to a potluck during the holidays, but i was never able to get the recipe--can't wait to try it! i'm giving this 5 stars, because i can't enter my comment without giving it a rating..i'll change it if they're no good :)

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
i had to stop myself from from just sitting down with the casserole dish in my lap and eating the whole thing. i imagine that it would also be good with italian sausage. i think that i didn't use all the sour cream or provolone that the recipe called for, but it didn't seem to make a difference!

Sweet and Spicy Soup with Black-Eyed Peas and Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
pretty good. used fresh sweet taters, otherwise followed the recipe reasonably closely. didn't have a couple of the "secret herbs and spices", but there were so many and frankly, so little of most of them that i can't imagine it made any difference.

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
pretty darned good. pounded chix tenders flat (it's almost impossible to find breasts that small) , so it didn't take that long to cook. might have been interesting with provolone instead of mozzarella. maybe next time.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
these rocked--added about 1/2 less sugar (didn't want to open a new bag), and about 2 tbsp. extra cocoa (didn't want to put that small amount back on the shelf), and they were easily the darkest, richest brownies i've ever made.

Jacky's Fruit and Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
not so great--i made two batches of these yesterday, one with berries, the other with peaches, and neither one of them was exceptional. i found them to be too sweet, with a texture more like a quick-bread than a muffin. they were also flat instead of rounded, but that may be an altitude problem.

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
these are very good--i make them in the more traditional scone shape by rolling out a 9-inch round and cutting it into 12 wedges.

Beefaroni

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
this is ok--i only had a small can of tomato sauce, so i used a jar of 4 cheese pasta sauce. it came out tasty (my daughter and i both had two helpings), but the chunky sauce was un-beefaroni-ish. next time i'll make it with the plain tomato sauce. i also am thinking about slightly undercooking the pasta--it swells a lot during baking--which might require a bit more sauce.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
quite good...i simmered the cream with the garlic and then strained it out before adding the cheese. after the cheese melted the sauce was quite stringy, (that whole melted cheese thing) so i added about 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water which made it fluid enough to coat the pasta. i left out the parsley, but i think next time i'll add chopped basil.
