Jam Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
I would not use this recipe again. The results were a strange texture and a bad taste. I followed the recipe as written. I'm surprised the overall rating is so good.

JIF® Buckeyes

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
DELICIOUS!!!! I followed the recipe exactly, except I made them a bit bigger and didn't leave the tops exposed to resemble the buckeye. Everyone is raving about this treat! Wonderful texture and taste.

Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
SERIOUSLY AMAZING! I am not exaggerating when I say that this risotto is the best thing I have ever made! I admit I left out the celery and parsley, and used chicken stock because I prefer the richer flavor. I will make this again and again! In fact, it's going to be my fancy Christmas Eve dinner!!

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
BEYOND AMAZING! I made these as written (ok, maybe I skimped on fridge time) and they are PERFECT!! I am known for my cookies and will absolutely be adding these to my top tier cookie list! THANK YOU!

Pumpkin Toffee Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
Super tastey and easy to make! I chose not to add the caramel topping which was listed as optional. It was delicious without. The texture was great, the flavor was mild but very pleasant. I usually prefer my pumpkin products a bit spicier but I would definitely make this again as written! Oh also, I could only find toffee bits with chocolate (like crushed Heath bars.) Even though this isn't 100% accurate as the recipe is written, it was a great substitution.

Hearty Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
Great Breakfasty cookie! I used the recipe as written, ONLY switching the mix-ins. The texture is great and the flavor is super delicious and healthy. It tastes more "health food" than "cookie." It is not as sweet as a traditional cookie - I didn't feel guilty eating them for breakfast with a yogurt! I used a whole bag of cranberries, 1/4 cup of flax seed and about 1/2 cup of pecans. I did consider the wheat germ a mix-in and switched that to GrapeNuts cereal. OO might I suggest chunky peanutbutter for this.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
DELICIOUS! I will admit that I didn't try the special syrup, so I can't attest to that...But the pancakes were AMAZING! I didn't make any alterations and PERFECT! :)

Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
WOW WOW WOW! SOoooo good! As other suggested I doubled the spices and added 1 tsp of nutmeg. I like really spicy and sweet so the upped spices were a'ok with the full bag of butterscotch chips. I also baked at 330 for 10 minutes. Seriously...AMAZING! Merry Christmas!

Pumpkin Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
I made this recipe without the nuts and chips, simply because I didn't have any in the house. The brownies got rave reviews...though I will admit, I didn't think they were as amazing as everyone else did. Next time I will try with the mix-ins. Maybe that is the magic ingredient.

Thai Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
SUPER Yummy! Some have said it was too sweet with 1/4 C pb. I used good chunky pb, with just peanuts and salt, no sugar or weird oils, and I thought it was fine! I used the full 1/4C and was happy with what I got. As someone suggested, I added cilantro and a squeeze of lime at the end. Very nice! (Strangely my grocer didn't have sprouts so I had to do without. Would make this again, maybe with a little red pepper flake!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
Simply amazing! This was a huge huge huge hit! I don't remember if someone suggested this or if it was my own stroke of genius, but I made a cinnamon and sugar topping with pumpkin seeds for this bread. YUM!!!!!

Red, White and Blue Slaw Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
WONDERFUL! Amazing...I made it for my 30th BD BBQ and it was a HUGE hit!! I used Kraft bottled coleslaw dressing. My only complaints have nothing to do with the recipe itself...coleslaw dressing was hard to find! I went to 3-4 stores! And the measurements on the shredded cabbage bag was confusing. I wound up with sooo much excess cabage!

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
To say I have a sweet tooth, is a dramatic understatement. That said...this was WAY too sweet! And I found the flavor to be pretty one note! I recently got some fancy cinnamon and vanilla, and thought this would be a great place to showcase the fancy spices. Even with fancy Roasted Saigon Cinnamon and Mexican Vanilla, this recipe lacked depth of flavor. I think it needs one more ingredient for flavor but I can't put my finger on it. Maybe salt, ginger...? Also, while cooling, the custard formed a skin (like pudding.) I didn't realize the paddles in my machine wouldn't work this out, so I got small lumps in my ice cream. I don't think I would make this again...

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
Wonderful bread! My Father-In-Law has been begging for zucchini bread for weeks! As he is ill and it is Father's Day, I decided to make it now! Thing is, I had never made it, and I wasn't sure if it was sweet or savory. I decided to make both, this and a recipe I found on another site. This was a much easier sort of normal recipe. The savory one was interesting but the recipe was a bit weird! Either way, sweet wins in my book! I didn't make any changes, and I just ate THREE pieces for breakfast!

Lobster Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
Very costly, very labor intensive and it did not turn out. I am a pretty savvy home chef but this just didn't pan out. I abandoned my sweetheart on Valentine's Day to make a fancy pants dinner that was not worth the bucks or the precious time I spent on it. :(

This recipe didn't thrill me. Not bad necessarily - just nothing special.

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
Great recipe! As others suggested I added 1 tsp each of vanilla and cinnamon, and a dash of salt. I split the sugar 1/2 each of white and brown. The only other change I made due to limited ingredients was that I used 1/2 the suggested measurement of banana and subsituted apple sauce for the other half. SUPER yummy!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
Ok so I am completely confident this recipe would be tops without any changes. Due to limited ingredients, I did make some adjustments. As suggested I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 crisco. Then with limited sugar, I used 1/2 cup granulated and 1 3/4 cup powdered. I omitted the nuts and made these with 2 1/2 cups of mixed chips (semisweet, butterscotch and white chips.) They came out soooo good, that I would make them with the strange sugar combination again next time, but look forward to trying them again with another combination of chips. Maybe chocolate and peanut butter. YUM!
