Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
I use 1-1/4c peanut butter, 2-3/4c flour, and egg substitute (vegan). These are wicked-good cookies and everyone who tries them loves them. I give them 5 stars even with the egg substitute but I bet they are even better with real eggs.

Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
These are more like "cakies" but they taste just like those old Snackin' Cakes. These are worth about 3 stars but because they are so easy to throw together and bake they deserve the extra star. Despite their 3 star taste, I can't help eating them until I feel sick. That's a sign of something good!

Vegan Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
I had to add a little bit of soy milk to the batter to make these spread properly on the griddle. I would suggest pouring small amounts of the batter onto the griddle to make flat pancakes. Otherwise they turn out too thick and not cooked properly. I tried these with and without chocolate chips and both were good. However, the plain pancakes had a strangely buttery flavor that was very nice. Just because these are a good vegan substitute for normal pancakes, doesn't mean they are worth 5 stars. Regular buttermilk pancakes are worth 5 stars so we should always compare foods to the best, not just rate them 5 stars because they are "good enough" for vegans. So "5 star vegan" but "3 star universally"

Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I'm not a big fan of sugar cookies but I usually don't have a problem eating them. These cookies were NOT good.

Pumpkin Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
I tried this recipe the first time using pumpkin spice, 1 cup sugar, and regular apple juice. Although it tasted all right it was missing a "punch" and the tangy aftertaste from the AJ was too much. I tried it a second time and used separate spices, low-acid apple juice, and 1-1/4 sugar. This was great!
