MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
I've made lots of homemade brownies over the years and this is the best recipe ever!! These brownies are the perfect combination of chewy and fudgy. I also like that the recipes doesn't use much butter. I doubled the recipe to make a 13 x 9 pan.

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Quit possibly the best choc. chip cookie recipe ever!! They are not too crisp, chewy and lots of flavor. They look great too!! Tastes like the first time I ever had a chocolate chip cookie when I was little! The only changes I made is that I always use 2 tsps of vanilla extract in cookie recipes and I had a hint of nutmeg to the flour mixture. This recipe is a keeper!

Sunday's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
This was by far one of the best apple pies I've ever made!! I used a combination of granny smith and cortland apples. I also drizzled approximately 1 tbsp of real lemon juice over the apple/flour mixture once I put it into the pie shell. This pie had the perfect combination of tart/sweet taste. Warmed up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top - absolutely heavenly!!! I use frozen pie crust for the bottom of the pie and my own recipe for the top!! I use the recipe off of the can of Crisco. It has always been a foolproof recipe for me. The two tricks to flaky crust (as taught to me by my mom), try to handle the dough as little as possible. Also use ice water. This time around I also tried chilling the shortening - was one of the best crusts I've ever made! Happy Baking!!

Chuck's Molasses French Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
I made several adjustments to the recipe and the result was what I call the perfect french toast. I used 2 tbsp of molasses. I whisked in about 3 tbsp of flour and 2 tbsp of sugar into the egg/milk mixture. I did not have cream so I used milk and still got good results. I also put in a small pinch of salt. I read that putting flour into the milk mixture will help the bread to get crispier and it did!! Also, use lots of butter in your pan which helps the bread to get a crispier coating. The result is a french toast with a nice crispy brown outside and the inside had a nice combination of a bread / custard-like texture. I do not like french toast that has a heavy custard texture on the inside!! The flavor has a nice balance of sweet and somewhat savory with the ginger/salt combination. Oh and I also added a dash of nutmeg as I do to most things that I bake.

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Decided to try a new pumpkin bread recipe. This was a super moist and flavorful bread! I made a few substitutions. To cut back on the sweetness, I used 1 c. white sugar, 1 c. brown sugar, and 1/2 c. sugar/splenda blend. To me, this provided the perfect amount of sweetness. I also used milk instead of water. The bread rose pretty high compared to most other quick breads I have made. Will definitely use this as my regular pumpkin bread recipe.

Chocolate Sundae Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
This is an awesome dessert pie. Made it for Thanksgiving for friends who do not like traditional holiday pies. It is super easy to make. It tastes like the liquid at the bottom of a sundae bowl. To decorate the top of the pie, I put the chocolate syrup into a ziploc bag, cut the tip off and piped criss-cross lines across the top of it.

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Super easy and creates a nice flaky crust! I've always followed my mom's advice for making a flaky crust. The less you handle the dough, the better. Handling it too much will make it tough. Another secret is using ice water. I usually fill a large measuring cup with ice and then fill it with water... let it sit for at least 15 min before adding it to the flour mixture.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
I am always searching for the perfect choc. chip cookie recipe and I think I found it with this one!! I made two changes to the recipe which was that I used 1/2 c butter and 1/2 c shortening and I doubled the amount of vanilla (which I do with most cookie recipes). The result was a choc chip cookie with the perfect consistency of crunchy on the edges and soft in the middle!! This recipe is a keeper.

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
This is an awesome recipe. I made some substitutions to cut back on the fat/calories. Instead of the 1 1/2 cups of oil, I used 3/4 cup oil and 3/4 cup of regular applesauce. Instead of the 4 cups of sugar, I used 3 c. sugar and 1/2 c. of sugar/splenda blend. The bread was very moist, just the right level of sweetness and the flavor of the spices creates the perfect pumpkin bread. I will be making this for years to come. I also like the idea that it makes 3 loaves. No one would ever know that I made the substitutions.

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I'm not a big fan of canned soups but dislike making homemade soup because it can be very time consuming. This recipe is not only super easy but also super tasty!! I used 1 32-ounce box of College Inn Rotisserie Chicken Broth. In addition to the ingredients listed, I added a pinch each of white & black pepper, 1 tsp thyme, a couple pinches of poultry seasoning and some parsley flakes. Instead of egg noodles, I used 1/4 c. of pastina which are teeny-tiny pasta stars. I used Perdue Short Cuts grilled chicken which is super easy because the chicken is precooked/sliced. All you have to do is dice it up into small pieces and throw it into the broth. This recipe rocks!!!
