Pumpkin Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
First time making fudge ever and this turned out great! My fudge boiled well before the soft ball stage on my thermometer (boiled at around 225) so I went with the instructions. I found this to be almost painfully sweet, but I don't normally eat fudge. The pumpkin flavor is awesome, and I might add more cinnamon next time. It helped to have everything measured out and ready to pour. Next time I will stir everything before even adding to the pot, or use a whisk. It also took longer than expected to get the white chocolate to melt. I sprayed the foil and the fudge came out easily. Overall a great recipe for a first attempt at a new method.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
All I changed ingredients-wise was replace all of the allspice with cinnamon (don't have any allspice right now). So in terms of texture these are freakin amazing!! I found them to be super fluffy which I like, but everyone else seems to say that they are dense. I sifted the flour, for no real reason, and just per my usual method of making pancake batter I mix until there are small lumps, let it sit for a few minutes, then gently mix again to break up the lumps. This seems to get everything incorporated nicely without overmixing and makes for a light and airy batter. Oh and they taste amazing as well.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
I've made this as written and was good but I thought there was a lot of chocolate. Here's my current combo of ingredients: 2.5c oats, 1/2c rice krispies cereal, 1/2c. each of peanuts and sunflower seeds, 1c of cranberries, 1/2c. of white chocolate chips, and then the condensed milk. I didn't feel like melting butter on the stove because I don't have a microwave so I omitted it and it turned out SOOO good. If you make these as individual portions like a cookie you should use those ice cream scoops people use to portion out cookie dough and bake for 10-15 min. I baked them for 20 this way and they were slightly overdone but still tasty.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
I baked these until a toothpick came out clean. When these first came out of the oven they were a little cakelike. But after they rested overnight in the fridge then left out to get to room temp, they were very nicely soft, chewy and a little fudgy. I hand mixed everything and 25 min. in my oven was perfect. Only gave it 4 stars because 5 star brownies to me have a cracked out chocolatey and sweet quality and these are not quite there.

Almond Crescents I

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
This is not a very sweet cookie unless you roll them in the powdered sugar. Try one after baking, see if you like it or not as is, then play around with how much powdered sugar you want to add. I shook the cookies up in a bag of powdered sugar to get a nice thick layer of sweetness. Rolling the dough in the almonds was a bit of a hassle for me, next time I'll just add the full 1.5c to the dough/batter. I used my food processor to chop the almonds and in the future I'll process until the almonds are completely ground up - I prefer a more homogeneous cookie. 2c flour worked out well and I didn't need to chill the dough.

Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
I HATE making biscuits because they should be easy to make but most recipes are awful. This recipe is amazing and everything I think biscuits are supposed to be.

Quiche Lorraine II

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
Way too much onion and not enough bacon making the recipe as is. Next time I will double the bacon, use half an onion or less, add another egg or 2, and cut the milk a little bit.

Fish Tacos with Honey-Cumin Cilantro Slaw and Chipotle Mayo

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
Eating the leftovers for lunch right now...Delicious. A few things: Only marinated the fish for about an hour or 2 in the lime juice and it was fine, I may even forego doing that completely in the future. I had a LOT, and I mean a LOT, of honey cumin sauce left over so I'd cut that in half and see how far that takes you, unless you like to drown your food in lime juice twice over. If you like spicy throw in an extra chile into the chipotle mayo. I didn't mix the coleslaw with the cilantro and dressing, just let everyone do what they wanted. I'm thinking next time I'll mix some of the honey cumin sauce with the chipotle mayo and mix that with the coleslaw.
