Bachelor's Creamy Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
I had high hopes for this recipe after reading all the great reviews. Both my husband and I didn't care for it. First I made it exactly like the recipe. I tasted it and thought it was much too "garlicy." So I took the suggestion of a reviewer and added a tsp cinnamon and 2 tbsp brown sugar. This helped somewhat but now it had a weird garlicy sweet flavor.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
These were just okay. Very cakey which is not what I like in a cookie. I couldn't quite taste the pumpkin flavor. They tasted like cakey chocolate chip cookies with a funky flavor in it. I followed the recipe exactly. I will not be making them again.

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I was worried these would taste too much like barbeque but they were great! I followed the recipe exactly but I did sprinkle a little extra sea salt on them after I pulled them out of the oven. I will make them again next year for sure!

Bland. Needs a lot of doctoring up before I will make it again.

Gourmet Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
These were yummy! I was able to make 5 medium sized apples. I did not skip the boiling of the apples. I did melt chocolate chips instead of a candy bar and that worked well. And for my third flavor I melted some peanut butter chips and added a little bit of that after the chocolate hardened. Those were my husbands favorite. I also made some with salted peanuts. I just stuck the peanuts on before the chocolate hardened. Those were my favorite. The tart apple, sweet caramel and chocolate, and salty peanuts--Heaven!

Aunt Bev's Famous Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Really good! The only thing I changed was I made it a dutch apple pie because I don't really like crust that much. I didn't change the filling at all. It was super runny though after 50 minutes at 400 degrees, so I had to let it bake for at least 30 more minutes. Next time I might add more flour to it. Other than that, it was perfect!

Perfect chocolate glaze! I've made it a couple times for Too Much Chocolate Cake on this site and I don't change a thing. It's perfect!

Vegetarian Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
This was really good. Probably the best gravy I've ever made. However, I left out the salt--with the soy sauce it was salty enough! Also, didn't use nutritional yeast (didn't have any), and used beef broth instead of vegetable broth (not a vegetarian). Will make again next year!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
OMG this is good! Made a few changes as suggested by others: decreased oil to 1/2 cup; added 1/3 c milk; and used 1 cup of mini chocolate chips instead of 2 cups of regular. Also, made satiny chocolate glaze from this site. This is a keeper for sure!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
Wow! I don't even like carrot cake and I couldn't stop eating this one! Made some changes that were suggested by others: used 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar; added an extra teaspoon of vanilla and cinnamon. Also, didn't use the frosting recipe, I used one from Barefoot Cantessa instead. The best carrot cake I've ever had!

Fresh Salsa I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Tastes like salsa from a good mexican restaurant! Made 3 batches of this in less than 1 week! I did cut the salt down to 1/2 tsp and added a little fresh lime juice. It is spicy, but not over the top. I will never buy store bought salsa again!

Marinated Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Excellent recipe. Made a few minor changes. Used 1/2 c oil and that was plenty. Used 1/4 c reduced sodium soy sauce. Cut the salt down to 1/2 tsp and will probably cut it out completely next time. With all that soy sauce, it's salty enough! Also, used dijon mustard. It's a keeper!

Garlic Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Really good! I did not have low sodium chicken broth so I used the regular stuff and left out the additional salt. Also did not think there was a need to use the extra butter at the end. I will make it again for sure! Thanks!

Make-Ahead Spinach Manicotti

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
I really enjoyed this one! Made a few minor changes: instead of using onion powder and garlic powder I sauteed chopped onion with a little minced garlic in olive oil. Also, added a little red wine and a tiny but of brown sugar to the spaghetti sauce. Plan to make it again! Thanks!

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
I thought these were pretty good! I haven't been too impressed with any of the other brownie recipes I've tried, but these were pretty darn good. I cut back on the salt a tiny bit, and I think next time I might try just 1/8 tsp of salt (I use sea salt and it must have a stronger flavor because I'm always finding recipes too salty and I'm not an old lady--I'm 27!) Also, might try butter next time just to see if that improves the recipe. I threw in about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips too! Edited 2/11/12- I made these again with melted butter and 1/8 tsp sea salt and that changes my rating to 5 stars! My husband even thought they were from a box mix. This is a keeper!

Snow Ice Cream II

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Made it last night for the first time and I think this will become a fun tradition in my house! I used 1 cup heavy cream and 1 cup whole milk. Also, I mixed the milk, sugar, and vanilla together before adding the snow. It was great and more importantly fun!

S.O.P.P.

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
This was excellent and went well with scrambled eggs. I used chicken sausage. I would reccomend seasoning the potatoes though. Obviously, salt and pepper but I also used lots of Penzey's Forward spice and that gave the potatoes a great flavor. Also, 15 minutes total cooking time for potatoes??? Maybe if you like them raw...Cooked mine for about 45 minutes and they were perfect.
