Chickpea Salad II

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2008
This exactly what I was looking for. I added pasta to make it a really good meal. This was great for lunch because it could be eaten cold as we dont have a working mircowave. I also like to serve this over a bed of mixed greens. The dressing from the chickpea salad drips down on the mixed greens, and its like I get a bonus salad! Yum!

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
I made this for my sis in laws b-day, and she loved it! The only thing is I would half the liquer that is used if serving to people how dont really like the taste. I used kalula instead of rum. I also used cool whip instead of making my own whipped cream. Doing this ommites and extra step and tasted just as good. I also used the hard lady figures instead of the soft, the soak up a lot of the coffe mix so be careful or else you end up with mush (but it still tasted great!).

French Apple Tart (Tarte de Pommes a la Normande)

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Very yummy tart. This my first time making a tart, and it turn out great. I didn't use brandy, I used 3/4 tsp of almond extract instead. I kinda over worked the dough, so it was slightly chewier then I think it was supposed to be. I also didn't have a tart/pie pan, so i used a spring form pan instead and crimped the sides. Served with vanilla ice cream and the flavors exploded!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
Great cookie recipie. It was soft and chewy and tasted great. Its not too sweet. I din't put nut in it so I doubled the amount of chocolate chips and I added an extra 1/2 cup of oatmeal like another reviewer suggested. I didn't have a problem with the spreading too much, the were just right!

Mint Chocolate Cookie Crunch

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
A very quick and easy recipie. The cookie had good texture and was crispy. I added an extra tsp of peppermint extract as stated by another reviewer. I think next time instead of semi-sweet chocolates, I will replace them with andies mints so that would be just one less step and the minty taste will be assured.

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
These are light and tasty, but not what I expected after all the reviews. It really is more like a cake then a cookie.

Viennese Crescent Holiday Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I LOVE these cookies. They are buttery and crumble/melt in your mouth. They are a bit of work but well worth it! These were my favorite out of all the christmas cookies I made this year. They are both visually appealing and tast very gourmet!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
A very good cookie! This is a peanut butter lover's dream. I did make the filling, but in the end didn't use it because the cookies tasted great with out it. For a softer chewy cooking, I slightly under cooked the cookie by a mintue.

Chocolate Mint Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
The cookie looks awsome but the taste was okay. Not overly "chocolatity" or "minty." To add a little bit more mint taste, I dipped the cookies in semi-sweet chocolate, with a tsp of pepermint extract. It gave the cookies a little something extra they needed. I also like the black and white cookie look, so didn't use the food coloring. I think it looks more "upscale" with out it.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
I suck at making chocolate chip cookies, but i try and try again. This recipie was very easy and they came out awesome. I tried not to over mix the batter to advoid hard cookies. I also refrigerated the dough 1/2 hr before use. they dont spread and flaten out too much. Mine came out light, chewy, and a little fluffy.
