Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
Great! For our own preference, I used half King Arthur white/whole wheat flour, and half King Arthur unbleached all-purpose. I used 1 cup organic white sugar, and 1/2 cup regular golden brown sugar. Grandma's molasses instead of dark corn syrup. And I divided the batch into 3, made into disks, wrapped in plastic wrap and chilled for 2 hours. Easy to roll, perfect soft texture, mild flavor. I would prefer them spicier, but they're good as is too.

Zucchini Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
Upped the recipe by using a total of 10 eggs, 1 cup cottage cheese (instead of oil), eyeballed 1 cup parmesan, 4 cups shredded zucchini, 1 whole onion diced small, a heaping cup of Bisquick. Texture was great, even kids ate it. Needs lots of pepper and a sprinkle of fresh parmesan on top. With these additions, it made one smaller pie and one deep pie. Baked at 380 for about 45mins.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
I am an experienced challah baker. This recipe was super easy, very little mess, and came out perfectly. I do not have a bread machine. I put the yeast and sugar in Kitchen-Aid mixer bowl, added 110 degree water, let proof for about 10 mins. Added the bread flour, kneaded for 6 mins on the dough hook, pulled off dough hook, let sit for 15 mins covered in lightly oiled bowl, kneaded in 1 tsp kosher salt, then let rise as directed from there. They look great. I will definitely make these again for sandwiches. 4yr old went nuts for them. Next time I will definitely double the recipe, the 2 baguettes were on the small side.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
I am an experienced challah baker. this was my first french bread. The rolls seemed to rise too much - they more than doubled within the first 50 minutes. After I punched it down and made into rolls, the rolls ran a bit and looked a bit gooey. But, they taste great! Good crust and crumb and french bread taste. Also easy and inexpensive. I'll try this one again.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2007
These were really good. The dough was easy to mix, and turned out just like playdoh. Not sticky at all, fun to work with. The smaller cookies turned out the best, the larger ones didn't quite cook in the middle, although they were still yummy! They were best after a few hours/overnight. I'll definitely make these again. These are also great for the kids to help with.

Dr. Bird Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
I've made this recipe for a couple years now. My friend's parents said it was the best cake they've ever had. Perfect for breakfast with coffee or afternoon with tea, but it doesn't need a hot beverage, it's so moist! Everyone loves it.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I just did the pancake part, and they turned out great. Perfect consistency, and I'm glad to find a recipe that doesn't require buttermilk. I made happy faces with the miniature chocolate chips and served them with a cup of syrup for dipping for my son's 3rd birthday breakfast.

Delilah's Frosted Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
I really liked this recipe. The only thing though, is I put mine in the freezer for 3 hours and it STILL wasn't firm enough to work with. Once it was, I pulled off a small hunk and rolled out 1 dozen, while keeping the rest in the freezer. Make sure your surface is well floured, as well as the butterknife or whatever you use to scrape it up to put it on the cookie sheet. The cookies held their shape well and taste good, nice and soft. Oh also don't chill your dough in the mixing bowl, scoop it out onto a sheet of plastic wrap and press into a disc shape, so it chills evenly and is easy to roll.

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
We loved this. My brisket was only 3 1/2 lbs, so I added a bunch more potatoes (used small white potatoes, halved). The whole family loved it, will make again and often! Our 3 1/2 lb roast comfortably fed 7 adults one 3/4" thick slice.

The Cake That Doesn't Last

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2006
This has been a family favorite for over a year now. I made it once for a friend when I lived in England, and she and her whole family thought it was the best cake ever. I make it at home all the time when I have leftover ripe bananas. It's easy to make, easy cleanup, and everyone loves it. We bake it in a bundt pan, no frosting, and eat it as a morning coffee cake or afternoon tea cake. Oh and I also usually only use like 1 1/2 cups sugar and that is PLENTY. This makes cute little mini bundt cakes as well.

Broccoli Cheese Soup III

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2006
We liked this. I used frozen broccoli (increased to about 6 cups or so) and a can of evaporated milk. It was good, but a little salty. Next time I will use low sodium cream of celery soup, and add in some shredded chicken and chopped potatoes.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2006
We love this, my 12 month old and 2 1/2 year old do too. We use several small red potatoes halved and add a can of cream of mushroom. I also like to mix the water, soup, and soup mix together and then pour over the roast, it's easier to mix.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2006
Love this! It's very forgiving too. I've made a few slight variations depending on what was on hand and it was fine. This time: 1 can pinto and 1 can black beans, 1 can petite diced tomatoes with zesty jalepinos and one can diced tomatoes Mexican style, 1 cup chicken broth instead of beer (to make up for the extra liquid in the 2nd can of tomatoes) and added 1 can drained jalepinos. Also you can leave the chicken as is all day, 8 hours, and then shred it and it's still fine.

Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2006
I made this for cheesecake. It's a beautiful color, nice and thick, easy to make, impressive! I used cheap almond extract though, and you can tell. It would be way better with high quality almond.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
I loved these. Lighter and less greasy than regular chocolate chip cookies. They raise up high and are a pretty light color. I added a pinch of salt and an extra 1/2 tsp vanilla but followed the rest exactly. You should definitely give these a try! They didn't taste like they came from a box at all, as some previous reviewers mentioned.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
I followed some of the reviews and used only 1 cup sugar. I'm glad I did, it was perfect! 2 1/2 would have been WAY too sweet. 1 cup was sweet and just a little tart. I froze each half in gallon ziplock bags. I pulled out one bag 2 hours before the party, and the next about 30 mins before the party so it would start defrosting while the first was being drank, and be ready to go by the time it was empty. Everybody loved it and it was a beautiful pink color. UPDATE: I've taken this to 4 parties now and it's always commented on. YUM.

Spinach Salad With Berries and Curry Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
This was yummy, and I love how healthy it was. I couldn't find plain rice vinegar, so got Balsalmic Blend, and it seemed to work. Dressing was very tangy. Oh and I used walnuts instead of pecans. Yummy and healthy, quick to throw together. I'd make this again. It would go well with chicken salad sandwiches, we had it with chicken burgers and hamburgers.

Strawberry Trifle

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2006
I used fresh strawberries, real whipped cream, and 1 3.4oz package vanilla pudding mixed with 1 3.4oz package cheesecake pudding. It was beautiful, but didn't taste as good as I'd hoped. It was light and fluffy but too sugary for me. I would have preferred plain angel food cake with strawberries. Maybe next time I'll try pound cake and a real homemade custard. But, it did look beautiful and everyone commented on it at our Easter bbq.

Queenie's Killer Tomato Bagel Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
This is yummy! I love to do mine with onion bagels and regular cream cheese (or vise versa) and topped with tomatoes, avocados, and alfalfa sprouts. Also good with a good deli turkey. You can do whatever you want with these, they make a great lunch!

Key Lime Pie VIII

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
My family loved this! Some reviewers said only 3/4cup lime juice would be better so I started with that, tasted it, and decided to add more, so it was probably just under 1 cup. I also used real whipped cream (had some leftover), and a store-bought graham cracker crust. It was delicious, creamy, a pretty color, and not too sweet or too tart. There was enough filling leftover to make a little parfait. Mine was a bit gooey, I found it's better frozen and served straight out of the freezer.
