Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2013
Tried this tonight and it's really yummy. I sauteed the onions a bit with some garlic first and I like them, but I think I might take the advice of mincing it next time. I think I also will make extra sauce to pour on the layers of potato. I put some bread crumbs on top but didn't really like the way they came out. Overall, really good. I'll probably experiment a bit with it, but I'm sure I'll make it again.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
Very easy, light flavor. My waffle iron is a hand-me down and I've never used it before today, so it'll take some experimenting to figure out how much batter to use, but this recipe is a great start. I like that the batter can store in the fridge: I'll probably make it ahead of time so I can have waffles in the mornings.

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: May 18, 2013
Delicious. I took the advice of some of the reviews and used coconut milk instead of cream. The flavor isn't quite what you get in Indian restaurants and I'm not sure what's missing, but it definitely is a delicious substitute. I cooked the potatoes ahead of time and next time, I think I'll cook the carrots first. I didn't use jalapeno because my fiance can't really do spicy. I'll probably experiment a bit next time to figure out how to get a stronger flavor, but I think this will be one of my go-to recipes for sure.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
These are delicious. I didn't use vanilla (because I ran out) and put in a little extra cocoa powder and some chocolate chips, but they would have been awesome even if I stuck exactly to the recipe. I mixed everything in my KitchenAid after I melted the butter and they came out excellent. Cooked for about 27 minutes. My fiance, who asked me to make "really fudgey" brownies, loved them. I did not make the frosting and added a little caramel topping instead. It was too much -- they're great all alone.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Tried this one today after a very disappointing attempt at Paula Deen's recipe, which had the consistency of slightly wet sand and was inedible. This is DELICIOUS and got an "Oh, yeahhh. Save this," out of my fiance. I didn't tweak the recipe at all and only chilled it an hour and it held together very well. I had to put a leg or two back on the men, but they taste delicious. I'll be making a bunch more next week to give out to neighbors and coworkers. I might add a little more ginger next time -- I love the cloves but I'd like a bit more ginger flavor -- and I think I'll try making a lemon or orange icing instead of eating them totally plain, but they're amazing. Eileen should call up Paula Deen and tell her how to actually make cookies.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
I had a giant zucchini from my CSA and this was the first recipe that came up on Google. I gave some of the bread to a neighbor as a thank-you for something she did for us, and she loved it. She told me I should open a bakery. She said she thought the recipe was a family heirloom. I guess it is, just not from my family! I'll definitely hold on to it for future use.

Turtle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
I read some but not all of the reviews and a few things came out weird. I used caramel sauce instead of melting caramels, but I probably shouldn't have used as much evaporated milk, because the caramel sauce never firmed up. It stayed liquid throughout the cooking process. I will admit I didn't let the crust cool enough before adding it, but I wound up with batter floating on top of the caramel "layer." Even after it came out of the oven, there was still liquid. In the end, we froze it overnight instead of just refrigerating it, and it all firmed up pretty well, but not the caramel. So I wound up with crust that was stuck to the pan topped with sauce topped with the cheesecake, which was dense, but tasty. We kind of liked having the "sauce," but I wish I could have sliced it like cake. I think next time, I might just make the batter and make the sauce to use as a side condiment.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
I wish I had read the reviews before I tried to cook. I only had one cup of milk, but I'm glad I didn't have more, because like others said, it was way too liquidy. I live at a high elevation (over 4,000 feet), and I've never made quiche before, so I thought it might be a problem with the elevation. I put it back in the oven at 375 for about 10 minutes to no avail. I finally took it out of the oven and put it in the fridge because I have to go to work, but I'm not optimistic that it will set up enough to eat for dinner.

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
I made these for a small dinner party tonight and got rave reviews. My boyfriend can't stop eating them. I used natural peanut butter (Adams) and because it was a new jar, the cup I scooped out was pretty oily. Also melted the butter (unintentionally while softening it in the microwave) and added butterscotch chips. Very tasty. Just the right texture (I like crispy cookies, the boyfriend likes them practically raw) and they crumble just right in your mouth. Maybe not the BEST I've ever had, but my boyfriend asked me to write the recipe in my personal cookbook and told me they're better than his previous favorite of my cookie recipes.
