Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Followed the directinos to a T and this never got fluffy for me as long as I mixed it. My mixer broke in the midst of trying to beat it to fluffiness. Bought a new mixer and almost burned out the motor on it when I went back and tried "fluffing" it again the next morning. Used it anyway (on the Extreme Chocolate Cake from this site) because it was spreadable and the taste was fantabulous. Just didn't turn out fluffy like I'd wanted and when I tried piping it, it ended up kinda melting into the base layer of frosting after a while.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
Made these over the weekend. Dough was quite sticky and definitely not "rollable". Had to add quite a bit extra flour to get them to roll into balls, but didn't hurt them one bit. Subbed almond extract for the vanilla, didn't roll in sugar before baking & took them out of the oven just as they started looking like they were getting color on the bottom edges. Came out excellent. Great flavor, great texture, definitely sweet enough for my tastes without any icing added & still soft today. Thinking I may try a citrus version with some with lemon extract and grated orange & lime rind added.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
Excellent! Although I did make a few changes, some due to preference, some to what I had on hand. Subbed 1c whole wheat flour for AP flour, only 1 tsp cinnamon (all I had left), subbed a little over 1/2c chunky raspberry applesauce for 1/2c of the oil, cut white sugar to 3/4c & added 1c brown sugar, 3 cupz zucchini & a handfull of dried cranberries in place of the walnuts. Stirred in 1/2c quick oats at the end since I added the extra zucchini. Made 24 muffins & 2 mini loaves. Parents stopped by just as I was pulling them out of the oven and my mom could smell 'em outside so they ended up being my taste testers...ended up taking some muffins home with them. =)

Simple Garbanzos

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
Was looking for some healthy snack/side recipes using garbanzos and came across this. It is delicious! I didn't have lemon so I subbed lime juice, ommitted the peas (don't like frozen peas) and added a little less olive oil and a little more salt. Made them last nigth and marinated overnight to bring to work with my lunch and they are absolutely wonderful!

Cherry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
Made this last night, left out the oil and added some almond extract to the icing and the cake batter and it was wonderful. Only problem I had was that I took it out of the oven at about 22-23 minutes and the bottom was very very browned on 1 side, but that was probably due to my crappy old oven.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I tried this last night and not sure what I did wrong, but they are extra chewy today. I boiled for just over 3 minutes. Even baked 2 minutes longer than stated because I had to run out of the room and didn't hear the timer. I sprayed my pan with butter flavor spray before placing the crackers. Let it sit 20 minutes then stuck in the freezer 20 minutes to set up so when it came out of the freezer it just gave it a little twist and they popped right off like an ice cube tray. No foil or parchment needed. They broke apart pretty easy and it was crisp at first, but now are mega sticky and chewy. Gave it a 5 because it had to have been something I did to make them chewy. Taste great sprinkled with a little sea salt that has been mixed with just a teeny bit of cayenne pepper.
