Spiced Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2014
The bones of this recipe are great. In an attempt to make it a *little* less bad for me, I subbed the vegetable oil for walnut oil I had on hand, used a stevia/sugar mix instead of straight sugar (1/2 c instead of a full cup of plain sugar), and 1 cup of AP flour with another 3/4 cup of white whole wheat flour. I doubled all the spices as well and added lightly floured walnuts instead of pecans. I stayed away from adding extra sugar since this is a quick bread and not a spice cake, and I love how this turned out. In the past I've added raisins or currants and those also make this even more delicious. All-in-all, the base recipe is probably my favorite for applesauce bread that I've found so far!

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
These were surprisingly tasty. The only reason I'm giving them 4 stars instead of 5 is because...well, it's pretty much a basic deviled egg recipe but with bacon, and adding bacon to anything is basically cheating. I've made these twice now, once with the cheese and once without. Unless you're using sharp cheddar, the cheese really doesn't add much to these. The second time around I also added a smidge of cayenne, which was a nice layer of flavor near the end. All in all, it's a good recipe.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
This really is a fantastic recipe. Easy, quick (don't even need a mixer, unlike regular chocolate chip cookies) and delicious. I make them to the recipe and only substitute milk chocolate chips for semi-sweet and they've turned out great both times I've made them. When they cool they do get a little crisp/crunchy, but after I pop them into a zip bag and leave them alone for a couple of hours their texture comes right back. Thanks for posting this recipe!

Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
These were pretty tasty, but I was a little surprised at how much like the box mix they turned out to be. That's not necessarily bad, but I think I was expecting a little bit more from them. I did make a couple of changes in adding a little cinnamon and some vanilla, and I cooked them in some butter instead of spray. Good, but not mind-blowing.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
Pros: Easy to make, delicious. Cons: Very delicate. I wanted something I could throw together pretty quickly for breakfast and these looked great, and they taste great, but I ended up destroying about half the pan trying to get them out, and I used cooking spray! These are so delicate when they come out of the oven that setting them on the cooling rack the wrong way will end up causing a very noticeable dent. I had to wait for them to cool before I even tried to roll them in the coatings. Also, I didn't have any nutmeg on hand for the batter so I just used cinnamon. The plain muffins are quite good too, very buttery and light, perfectly good even without the coating.

Chocolate Macaroons I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
These are fantastic! So simple but the result is delicious. As for the people complaining of a runny batter, I'm guessing the egg whites weren't whipped enough. After adding the sugar they should get glossy and white, but you still have to whip them more. When you pull your beater up and you see the whites standing up on their own, they're done.

Colored Sugar

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
All I had was gel color that was not incorporating. I ended up using about 1/2 teaspoon of hot tap water and a few drops of the gel color. After dissolving the colors I added them to the sugar. I did get a bright orange rock of sugar on the bottom at the end, but it turned out well enough.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
What a gigantic disappointment. I've made flourless chocolate cake before, and always use a springform pan, which is what I used here. The "cake" leaked out into the foil I wrapped around the pan and made a mess. Plus, I left the cake in the oven for almost an hour and it STILL never set up. I have some great-tasting chocolate pudding now, but no cake. Stick with the flourless torte recipe in the cake bible if you want one that won't disappoint.

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Was pretty tasty, but I made a couple of changes. Lacking a fresh onion, I used some dried, minced onion (around a teaspoon and a half), added some garlic (about a teaspoon), and we're not big ketchup fans in this house, so I used barbeque sauce. I also used plain sugar instead of brown, since I realized I didn't have any halfway through making this. The end result was good, the crust being the best part!

Cheese's Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Did this without the kielbasa, just the macaroni part. Was quite surprised with how tasty it was, for being quite a simple recipe. I added some crumbled bacon on the top with the bread crumbs, couldn't stop eating it!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
I'm not sure if the misfire on this bread happened when I scaled it back (4 loaves? Too much!) or if it's just the way the bread is. The banana flavor really wasn't what I was expecting here. The bread was certainly moist, almost like a cake, but the flavor wasn't so great. Think I'll switch back to my old recipe after this one.

Dirt Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
The recipe specifically states that you use INSTANT pudding, ergo there's no boiling involved. This is a great recipe that, if you follow the directions and ingredients list, yields a delicious result.
