Midnight Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
These came out absolutely delicious! I liked the kick, but I added a bit of extra ginger to get it. Also, molasses isn't sold where I live, so I had to substitute pure maple syrup for it and they still came out great. There weren't as many as the recipe said there would be, so maybe I'll make them smaller the next time.

Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
It was pretty good, with a lot of changes/additions, though. We didn't have vegetable broth so we just used mushroom broth, and it still turned out well. Added sauteed minced garlic and onions as others suggested, as well as lots of herbs (rosemary, parsley, thyme, oregano) and some pepper. Also added mushrooms and peas, and topped the whole thing off with Romano cheese and bread crumbs. Still tastes really good, but I wouldn't call it "the best". I'd definitely recommend the recipe though. It was still very tasty!

Cinnamon Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
I thought these were AMAZING. Best cinnamon cookies I have ever had, if I do say so myself. Followed the recipe exactly aside from adding an eensy extra bit of cinnamon, because I really like cinnamon... :] Oh, I put a few pinches of white sugar on top before baking them as well. They had crispy edges and soft centres... Delicious! Even everyone at school and my parents loved them. This recipe's a keeper.

Nanaimo Bars III

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
Absolutely amazing. I've made these before, but with a different recipe. A friend asked me to make these for her birthday and they turned out far tastier and better looking than the first ones I made. I have messed up the recipe before when I tried altering it, so I followed this one almost to a T (only changed slightly the amount of graham cracker crumbs, because mine were very powdery and probably would've caused the base to be too crumbly with the stated amount) and they came out wonderful. Everyone loved them -- and so did I!

Thanksgiving Leftover Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
It was a good way to get rid of leftover turkey for sure, but I'm glad I read the reviews about blandness before making it. Added in some spices as well as garlic and onions... Also, my mom thought that it was going to be really thick if we added the potatoes so we used pasta instead. Still really tasty! The sauce was a little runny, though was still delicious. Great recipe!

Chocolate Chip Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
These were okay. I don't know if it's because I put them in the oven, as another reviewer suggested, but these came out way too cakey. They tasted good, yes, but not great... I wasn't blown away. Followed the recipe exactly. I feel like the dough was missing something... And I was in a hurry so I cut them while they were still pretty warm, and they didn't turn out too presentable -- possibly because of that. I highly suggest you do wait until they're cool, otherwise you'll get chocolate everywhere because you'll cause the chocolate chips on top to melt when you cut them. EDIT: I don't know why, but after a few days, these tasted amazing! I took them to school and all my classmates absolutely loved them... SO, as such, I now give these five stars!

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
These were deeelicious. Unforunately, my mom bought strawberry preserves instead of raspberry preserves, so I had to use those instead, but the cookie base is still really tasty. I added a tsp of cinnamon, which really enhanced the flavour. As I like raspberries better than strawberries, I can't wait to try this with raspberry preserves instead! They will definitely -- no doubts about it -- taste even more amazing.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
Like the thousands of other reviews prove, these are verrrry good. Delicious. Amazing. Wonderful. All those things, yes yes. I halved the recipe because I didn't want so many cookies and they still turned out really well. I took another reviewer's advice and added some baking powder (1 tsp) and salt (1/4 tsp) and they still tasted great! Even though I halved the recipe, I still got LOADS of cookies... way more than I expected. Anyway to me they aren't 'the best' cookie ever, but they are definitely worth making again!

Apple Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
Mm these were all right. Not the best. I was disappointed that they didn't look like the bar in the picture, which looks really delicious. As other reviewers have pointed out, these are extremely cakey, and even with an added dash of nutmeg and a bit of maple syrup, they still would've been bland if not for the apples. I even added an extra bit of cinnamon, but they still weren't all that flavourful. They were moist, but held together well, and I used two cups of apples. I didn't finely chop them since I wanted to be able to clearly taste the apple, since it's my favourite fruit... Oh well. They still taste good, just not great.

Coffee Shortbread

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
As other reviewers have pointed out, these have a really strong, rich flavour, but they're delicious. I don't really like coffee, but I love these... Followed the recipe exactly and they were great. Found the dough a little tough to handle, and if you want to end up with 30+ cookies then you're going to have to roll them thinner than 1/4 inch... At least, that is what I found. Anyway, they're awesome. I had fun putting designs on them with the chocolate. :]

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
Very, very good. I did follow other reviewers' advice and changed a few things, such as adding a little extra flour, and not fulling the cookies to the top with raspberry jam... I actually wish I did, because they ended up not having enough jam in each. The shortbread is delicious though so it's alright. Mine cracked like crazy but I'm guessing it's because I'm an amateur... but they still held together. Also, for the glaze, I absolutely cannot imagine how 1 tsp is enough to get the right consistency... I added 1 1/2 tsp more to mine and it was perfect.

Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
Simple, but they certainly take a long time... They don't sell almond bark where I live so I just melted white chocolate and dipped them in that, drizzling melted semi-sweet chocolate over them to make them pretty. Oh, also, I thought they looked nice when they were only half-dipped, so I left them like that, but I wouldn't recommend doing that, since the balls -- even after you freeze them -- can easily revert back to the gooey substance they were before being dipped. Speaking of which, I followed everyone else's advice and refrigerated the dough before rolling them into balls (for 20 minutes) and then froze the balls for an hour before dipping. After dipping, I froze them for another 20 minutes because the warm white chocolate had supposedly caused them to go soft, and only after that did I put the finishing touches on them. They taste pretty good, but I didn't love them... Odd, since I used to really love Oreos (those are the sandwich cookies I used). Not bad, I guess. I'll see how everyone at school likes them on Monday.

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
Followed the recipe exactly... Some people told me they were too sugary. I found them very mediocre. If I were to make them again, I would add some type of chocolate chip to make it tastier... I can only give this a three. I really didn't think very highly of these.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
These must be the most delicious sugar cookies I have ever tasted in my whole life. They're amazing! Though I did take the advice of another reviewer and add a little extra vanilla.

Hiyashi Chuka Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Very good dish. Very refreshing to eat on a hot summer night, I find. Would be rather tasteless without the sauce, though I love how tasty it can be while being very healthy. Made the recipe as is, while adding some other different toppings and taking away other ones... Used julienned chicken breast rather than ham, and added some wakame seaweed as a topping. Yum yum. :)
