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!

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.

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!

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!!!!!

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!

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!!

Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream

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!

Coconut-Avocado Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
Ok, so this is the recipe I chose to christen the ice cream maker my boyfriend got me for my birthday. It is strange and wonderful! Strange and wonderful, I tell you! I picked up coconut milk by accident and decided to give it a whirl anyway. I think it solves the issues some had reported of the recipe being too sweet. It tastes like California to me :)

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.

Kickin' London Broil with Bleu Cheese Butter

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
OK so you ever have one of those moments where you start cooking and realize your ingredients aren't quite right? That was me tonight. The good news is that even with the tweaks I had to make this steak was WONDERFUL! I had no onion powder so I omitted. I had garlic powder not salt so I added 3/4 tsp of salt. Cayenne looked funky so 1 tsp chili powder instead. THEN the cheese was gorgonzola not bleu. BAH!!! Still everything was amazing! 8 minutes both sides under the broiler medium, another 2 after slicing for my well done preference.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I used to have MY fudge recipe and lost it years ago. I have never been satisfied with another recipe until this one. I omitted the nuts and used a disposable foil pan. WONDERFUL recipe! SO easy and cheap and decadent!

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!

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I am a gal who loves to eat. So please take me seriously when I say this might be the best thing I have ever eaten! I followed the recipe to a T - with one slight addition, a candy thermometer! I made chocolate fudge first so when I got to this recipe I thought the texture looked really off and was concerned. NO reason to be concerned! This fudge was part of a Christmas gift basket that I have given several pieces and has met RAVE reviews from one and all! In fact, I have some left in the fridge to make up one last basket for a few friends I will see tomorrow night, and I can't keep my paws off! I will need to make another batch! (What a shame!) Cheap, easy, decadent and WONDERFUL!!!

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!

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.

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.

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.
