Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
I made as directed, except I seared the meat first to lock in flavor. It was ok, not great. I´ll keep looking for other pot roast recipes though.

Best Chicken Ever

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
Really good recipe. The breading is great with the sour cream and seasoned corn flakes. Like others, I used ziploc bags and clean up was easier. I just had to fry because I was low on time, but I really liked the recipe and will make again.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
This will be my pizza crust from now on, it is perfect, it is just as described, slightly crunchy on the outside but nice and soft on the inside. I made one pizza and breadsticks smothered in garlic butter and everything was great! I do have to say that the breadsticks tasted even better the next day reheated in the oven. Thank you :)

Beat and Bake Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
Excellent recipe! I made this for my fiance´s bday and I usually never take the risk of trying a new recipe for a special ocassion. I´m really glad I did. I followed the recipe exactly, but I was concerned about moisture, so the only thing I changed was I added half the milk and the other half yoghurt. I also made it in a bundt pan. It was done in 30 mins. I also made the frosting, it´s really good, but a tad too sweet for my taste. Still would make the frosting again, but maybe a bit less powdered sugar. Refrigerated overnight and it was great. Fantastic recipe.

Vanilla Crepes

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
Really good recipe, the texture and flavor is perfect! Made mine by mixing everything in the blender and let sit for about 5-10 minutes before preparing. In the meantime made fillings. One caramelized banana with brown sugar and cinnamon and the other with canned guavas. Served also with vanilla ice cream. Thanks!

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Okay first of all i have to admit I substituted a lot of things, but it still came out spectacular. Everyone LOVED this dessert though they all said they´ve never had tiramisu like this one so I don´t know if what I made cann even be called that. I subbed mascarpone cheese with 2pckgs cream cheese, 3 tbsp sour cream and a bit vanilla. I subbed the ladyfingers with plain poundcake. And I didn´t have rum for the coffee mixture so I used brandy instead. Oh, I also added a hint of cinnamon to the brewed coffee. And yes, you have to double the coffee mixture recipe. And MANDATORY refrigerate 48 hours. Sprinkle cocoa just before serving. WOW!!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
These were good, but I guess I was expecting something mindblowing after reading all the fantastic reviews. I didn´t make them in the breadmaker though, I just followed some suggestions on making them by hand. I would have liked them more if they were softer and they tasted a bit too yeasty. Not bad though.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
I made these last year and I can`t believe I hadn`t rated them. Wow is an understatement. I used devils food cake mix and betty crocker chocolate frosting. I garnished by sprinkling a melted chocolate bar. I refrigerated overnight and served as ^truffles^ after a semi formal dinner. They looked so elegant and tasted great. Everyone thought they were from some gourmet store. Thanks for the recipe!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
This recipe was pretty good, I decided to indulge myself since I´m single this valentine´s... I have been looking for my ¨keeper¨ brownie recipe, but this is not it. I followed recipe exactly, and it was a bit too sweet for my taste. It cooked about 10 mins longer and consistency was nice and fudgy. I have to say boxed brownies still taste better, granted these are not as oily.

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
These are pretty good, I´m glad I tried the recipe. I followed the recipe exactly except that I reduced sugar in filling to 1 and 1/4 cup. I also used half brown sugar-half white. They were still a bit too sweet for me, so maybe next time I would try just one cup sugar. The crust is nice and buttery, but I recommend evening and flattening it out really well because it rises a bit. I used wax paper to line the pan and it did the trick. Good recipe, very nice and rich. Definitely a keeper.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
This is a pretty good recipe, and the only reason I´m giving it 4 stars is because it takes a really long time to dry. About 7 hours. I think you should make a note of it in the info, because I was making them for a party and the icing never hardened, so I couldn´t pack them without making a mess. Still, I would make this again, the day before my event now that I know how it works.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
These are fantastic! Very versatile, and they´re nice and soft. Definitely chill the dough so it´s easy to work with, and keep the dough you´re not using in the fridge while you work with bits at a time. I couldn´t find my cookie cutters, so I used a champagne glass to make circles and the size was perfect. I used the " sugar cookie icing" recipe here to make christmas spheres, trees and snowmen. Thank you for the recipe!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I guess I was expecting a lot out of this cookie after reading all the great reviews. I´m making christmas cookies for a bake sale and although they taste good, they did not make the final cut. My dad liked them ok, but he agrees they´re a bit too simple.

Sweet and Sour Sauce I

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
Gosh, I´m sorry but this just didn´t cut it. I tasted it as i was making it and it wasn't good. I tried adding orange juice and other tweaks, but that didn´t help much. I served it anyway, warning my family that it wasn´t an ordinary sns sauce, it didn´t taste as bad with the spring rolls and chicken, but definitely not what i was hoping.

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
I don´t know what to say about this recipe. I was really excited about it when I read all the great reviews, but was skeptical about the recipe. I tried it anyway, with no adjustments at all. It wasn´t bad, but it wasn´t great. When I make meatballs, there are usually none leftover. This time my family ate about half and didn´t ask for leftovers the next day. I guess this is a good recipe for someone who has never made meatballs before and would like a good base. I´m gonna stick with my original meatball recipe for now.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
I´ve made these cookies twice now in the same month. They´re pretty good. The only thing I would say is: the first time I made them, I eyed the ingredients and added maybe less baking soda than needed and the cookies were spread out nicely. I just finished making them again (I measured soda this time) and they came out like in your picture. Almost like little puffy biscuits. I would add less baking soda next time but will be making again. Oh and I have made these in the middle of a cookie crave with few ingredients on hand, so I never freeze the dough, but still turn out great.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
These cookies are pretty good, I like that they are very soft. I used fresh ginger and didn´t really measure it, but I think I put just the right amount. The only thing for me is that they didn´t rise well at all, I´m glad I didn´t flatten them. I usually get more cookies out of the doughs by making smaller balls, but this made exactly 24 normal sized cookies. Will most probably make again,though.

Cherry Cobbler I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
I had never had cobbler before, so I didn´t know what to expect. As per other reviews, I halved the sugar on both the batter and the water and I thought it was just right. I also added vanilla extract to the batter. It was pretty good, my family liked it, I would probably make this again, but I would still like to check out other cobbler recipes.

Simple But Awesome Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
I made this as a slight change to my usual pork chop recipe, and it was good, though I would not necessarily say awesome. It´s incredibly simple and quick, so that´s always hepful. I have to say that I didn´t use nearly half as much butter or oil, so I recommend using less to save a few calories.

Heavenly Shortbread

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
This is a great recipe, possibly the best shortbread since it´s not just delicious but also very easy to make. I only had two sticks of butter, so I halved the recipe and rolled the dough into little balls. They baked in about 11 minutes. They are fantastic by themselves, but I also brushed some with lemon glaze. Thank you for the recipe.
