Chef John's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2014
This was delicious! Next time I will use less pasta and only cook it 6-7 minutes.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2013
Easy and delicious. I added a little more rosemary than the recipe suggests. This recipe is a keeper!

Simple Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
I put the soup in the blender after if was done cooking. I added quite a bit of nutmeg, salt, and cracked pepper. I topped soup bowls off with grated Parmesan cheese. Next time, I may try adding a couple of leeks.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
In place of shortening, I used 1/4 cup butter and 1/2 cup applesauce. I increased the cinnamon to 1 teaspoon and omitted the nuts. I baked the cookies for 10 minutes at 350 degrees and they came out perfect. These cookies were similar to muffin tops--very light and moist. I am wondering what would make them taste more like cookies and less like muffins. Next time I will probably use a tad bit less flour and all butter instead of the butter/applesauce combo to see if this makes them more cookie-like. Overall, very delicious. I would make this recipe again.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
I made this bread into muffins by using greased muffin tins. I tried three varieties: plain, with walnuts, and with dark chocolate chips. The dark chocolate chip ones were a real hit! I used nonfat plain yogurt in place of the sour cream, which may have given the muffins a fluffier texture. Also, I used one cup of mashed banana. Cooking time was shorter-25 minutes-since I opted for muffin tins.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
This pie was awesome! My only suggestion would be to spice it up a bit more with cinnamon. I added quite a bit and would even add more next time. I loved that the apples were not too sweet nor too soft. The whole pie was gone by the end of the next day!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
So, this was my very first attempt at homemade crust. Overall, it went very well. I used unsalted butter in place of the vegetable shortening. Make sure you chill the water in the freezer and add the flour little by little. I will most definitely use this recipe again.

Jif® Peanut Butter Blossoms

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I used butter in place of the shortening. I also used dark brown sugar. I split the dough in two and made one part with chocolate kisses and the other part with dark chocolate Reece's peanut butter cups. I used mini-muffin tins for the peanut butter cups and cooked the dough for about 8 minutes before pressing the peanut butter cups into the mini-muffin tins. The cookies with kisses took a little longer in the oven--about 10 minutes. I also recommend freezing the kisses or peanut butter cups as this helps retain their actual form once placed in the cookie. Overall, a very tasty recipe. Just make sure you have milk on hand!

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Excellent, easy pie. I used granny smith apples and cut the sugar from 3/4 c to 1/2 c. The pie looked very juicy when I took it out of the oven, but it was perfect after sitting for 30 minutes. I served this with vanilla ice cream. I will most definitely make this again!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
These cookies call for way too much salt! I was not very impressed. I left out the nuts and used dark chocolate chips. Honestly, I would not use this recipe again.

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
This recipe turned out nicely. I used fresh raspberries and blueberries and served it with vanilla ice cream. I used 1 cup of butter and found it to be sufficient. In the future, I will melt the butter in the microwave instead of softening it. Also, I will either add more fruit or reduce the bottom/top oat mixture.

Vanilla Ice Cream VIII

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
I've made this recipe multiple times now. It's so quick and easy! Plus, there are so many variations to try. I like adding cinnamon! Today, however, I added raspberries by smashing them and folding them into the mixture. I use 2% milk, 1 1/2 cups sugar, and 2 teaspoons of vanilla. In the future, I may try adding pudding mix or geletin to make it a bit thicker.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
I have made this recipe several times. It is delicious! I find these cookies to be very sweet so I use a little less sugar. I fill the dough almost to the top of the muffin tins. I cook them for 6-7 minutes. I find that 8 minutes is a bit long. If these cookies overcook, they taste dry. I always end up with about 50 cookies. If I run out of peanut butter cups, I use Hershey's kisses which I press upsidedown into the cookie. Also, I find that greasing an ungreased muffin tin eliminates the difficulty of removing the cookies once they have cooled.
