Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2015
Marinade isn't versatile enough. We cooked it in the oven, and the flavor was not to our liking. Because of the high reviews, I'm assuming grilling makes a world of difference, but in my opinion a solid marinade should be able to be baked as well.

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
I followed others' advice and reduced salt to 1/2 tsp. My cookies were about 1.5" wide after baking, so actually only took 8 minutes of bake time. I also used butter and eggs at room temperature. My only significant change - add 1 1/2 cups of finely ground pecans to stir in the mixture after the addition of flour. It gives the cookie a FABULOUS taste that distinctly sets it apart from the run of the mill chocolate chip cookie without defeating the purpose of baking a familiar comfort food. I also used milk chocolate chips, personal preference.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
Followed the instructions almost exactly (cooked for 8 minutes, then let sit on the pan for 2 more minutes to set), but mixed in a bag of crushed Heath chocolate bits before rolling the dough into balls. Heath bits are what make Snickerdoodles, in my opinion. They came out delicious this way!

Grilled Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I followed the recipe for the sauce exactly, but decided against even trying it on the chicken. I am sublimely curious as to why other people got different results. I used Smuckers orange marmalade, and I quadruple check the recipe proportions. The combination of the marmalade, vinegar, olive oil, and sage just looked revolting, like a black goop coated in oil. This didn't change when I warmed it in the saucepan as directed. I have no idea how black translates to orange chicken, but it smelled strongly of vinegar and just tasted strange. My husband ended up just dumping it in the sink while I was re-reading and re-reading the recipe. Neither of us can figure out why this happened and why it wasn't reported in other reviews, and we ultimately just found another recipe for orange-ish sauce on this website, which was still mediocre. My search for a good orange chicken recipe is still ongoing.
