Gingerbread Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I must say, normally I really enjoy reading other people's suggestions and tweaking recipes accordingly. I found with this recipe that it wasn't a case of "add X and it will be even better." This recipe seems to be a disaster and needs many revisions to make the taste and texture even close to what it should be! After my MANY revisions, I couldn't even remember how I eventually got to the yummy gingerbread pancakes I ate this morning for breakfast! This is not a case of "if you can read, you can cook!"

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.

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!

Soft Sugar Cookies II

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
These are pretty tastey and have a great texture. I do think next time I might add salt and/or vanilla as another reviewer suggested. The taste of these cookies as the recipe is written is very subtle.

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.

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!

Chocolate Caramel Candy

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
I am known for my sweets ... cookies and fudge, cupcakes...anything sweet I bring around and folks gobble it up and rave about it. This recipe brought it to a whole new level. Yesterday I had a grown man tell me that he hopes this is what clouds in heaven taste like! AMAZING! They were a little sticky, but it is hot here so we just kept them in the fridge. OMG I think thins might be my signature candy now!

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! :)

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.

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!

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!

Tex-Mex Beef and Cheese Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
This recipe was DELICIOUS! As others had suggested, I doubled the spices including the salt (not the sugar.) I can't imagine how bland and watery it might have tasted without doubling! I used a Mexican cheese blend instead of the traditional Tex-Mex American cheese. That is the only switches I made to the actual recipe. Though I did have some refried beans and a 1/4 of an onion on hand that I threw into the tortillas. OO and I found I had more than enough of all ingredients to just roll up 6 extra tortillas. SUPER yummy! I only gave it 4 stars because the spices needed to be doubled.

Peanut Butter Temptations II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I must have PB Temptations I in my arsenal because it is a tiny bit different than this one. My recipe taken from this website a few years ago calls for 1 1/2 cup of flour and cooks for 10-12 minutes. Also - have extra Reese's on hand. I find I usually use more like 50 cups. Do not press the dough into the cup, just drop a ball in there and you will be good to go. These area BIG favorite of anyone I have served them to! Just make that tiny adjustment to the original and you'll be in pb heaven!

White Chocolate Macadamia Cranberry Dreams

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I fancy myself quite the cookie lady and this is one of my old reliable cookies! Folks call them my New England cookies and I get emails from my old boss several states away asking when I will send him some! The only thing I do differently is LOAD UP the chips and cranberries. I use a whole bag of each! The nuts I play around with every time! I have actually never used macadamia in these! Walnuts or pecans usually and I probably use more than I need to in the nut department too. SO yummy!

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.

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!!

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!
