Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
Yum! I had to alter the recipe slightly because of what I had on hand. Used 1/2 coconut oil, 1/2 salted butter, and then 1/2 whole wheat flour, 1/2 all purpose. They were great!

Slow Cooker Chicken with Stuffing

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2014
I found this to be pretty bland, despite adding vegetables and cheese. I served it over pasta. The chicken cooked well and the weird mushy consistency of the final product didn't bother me. My husband had to add hot sauce to his just to finish it. I like the idea of this meal, but it's quite boring.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
Made this last night for a potluck. I'm so happy to have found a way to make pulled pork so easily at home. Since I was making a lot, I used my giant crockpot and used one shoulder and two tenderloins. Both cuts tasted good, but the shoulder meat was much juicier than the tenderloin. There wasn't a hint of root beer taste. I will make this again, thanks!

Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
I really liked this recipe - it will now be my go-to Oatmeal Cookie recipe. I rated it 5 stars despite making some alterations, but I don't think that my changes were too drastic and I was impressed at how well the cookies took the changes that I made. I only added 1 1/4 cups of brown sugar because that was all that I had. It was plenty sweet and I will probably repeat this amount in the future. I added ground flax seed to the mix and instead of quick-cooking oats I added larger oats, and I used whole wheat flour. Despite the addition of these drier ingredients, the recipe held up with a single egg. My cookies took closer to 12 minutes to get to a consistency that I liked.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
This was better than I expected. Yum! I followed the recipe almost exactly: I substituted some apple sauce for a portion of the oil. Because of what I had on hand, I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 white flour, and 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar (and I decreased the total amount of sugar used). I made one normal-sized loaf, and some muffins. I made a crumb topping (oats, brown sugar, corn meal, flour and margarine) for the muffins. So good!

Strawberry Vanilla Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
these were great, but like most people, i altered the recipe: i lessened the milk to 3/4 cup and then added 1/4 cup of ricotta cheese. i omitted the oil. sooooooo good! i find that if you let the batter sit for a few minutes before you make the pancakes, the batter will fluff up a bit. i will definitely make these again.

Moist Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I really liked these cinnamon rolls. I don't know if it's my breadmachine or not, but the dough cycle took over an hour, so for me, the entire process was closer to two hours. I liked the caramel on the bottom of the rolls, and I added an icing to the top when they were hot. I also added a lot more cinnamon than the recipe called for, even adding some to the caramel in the bottom of the pan. I like cinnamon :)

Aunt Mary's Banana-Chocolate Chip Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
I thought that this recipe was just okay. I doubled the recipe, which may have contributed to my results, but overall I thought that it wasn't banana-y enough, and I even added extra banana. I would put this somewhere in between a banana bread, and a banana cake... It was good for what it was, but I think I was looking for a moister, more banana bread-type recipe. One plus, however, was that this recipe didn't have the obvious baking powder taste that I find so many banana breads have. It was edible, and everyone liked it, but it wasn't as good as I had hoped (or craved).

Basic Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2001
i made these as christmas gifts, they are so easy, but look like they took a lot of time and effort! i covered mine with melted milk chocolate, which gave a bit of a cool effect (dark truffle center, lighter chocolate outside). i also added a bit of brandy to them, yet the flavor of the brandy wasn't very strong, next time i think i shall add more than just a splash. thanks for the recipe, they were a great success, especially for my first time working with chocolate.

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2001
i made this for a vegan potluck that i went to (everyone was vegan, except myself). i used egg substitutes (1tbsp. water + 1 tbsp. cornstarch and a dash or baking soda per egg), i also used vegan margarine and vegan soy cheese. but it was still amazing! it was a big hit! i can't wait to make it with real cheese, butter and eggs!! (i halved the sugar and butter, like everyone suggested) this is especially great because i was looking for a mexican cornbread recipe.. and i've found it!! thanks!!!!

Best White Icing Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2001
great icing! tastes just like the kind of icing that you would find at a supermarket, in the plastic tubs - yet it has a good home-made taste. will use again.

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2001
i had high hopes for this cake, but was sadly disappointed. i found this cake to be too heavy, despite adding the extra 1/2 cup of milk everyone else suggested.. and from the words of my sister: "this cake has no taste" - yes.. i too found it to be bland.. i will return to my hunt for a good white cake recipe :(
