Country Fried Steak and Milk Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
This was great! I love country fried steak, and this was the first recipe where I could successfully make it myself. REALLY pound the meat, the thinner the better.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: May 9, 2010
This was absolutely to die for! AMAZING! Super easy, and tasted amazing. I agree with some of the reviews, it was a bit too sweet and next time I'll definitely cut back on the sugar. Secondly, I'd use less butter. I ended up having to sop up some that had puddled up on top. I know this sounds like complaints, but tit was seriously phenomenal.

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
I read the reviews and definitely wanted chewy, not cake-like, brownies, so I doubled the recipe and added one less egg and 1/3 cup less flour. I also added an extra 1/3 cup of peanut butter. I also added two cups of milk chocolate chips. They were AMAZING. I bake often, and everyone said this was the best thing I've ever made. I made them for my boyfriend, who took them home last night, and now I wish I had kept a few for myself! Definitely a repeat recipe :)

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
I didn't have any cottage cheese on hand so I replaced that with ricotta. When reading the reviews before making this, I couldn't understand how people could say it was dry with all the cheese involved! But, lo and behold, it was indeed dry. If I made it again, I would probably add milk to make it creamier. It was the kind of recipe where the first few bites were great, but... Also, if I make it again I'd definitely cut the amount of bread crumbs in half. Overall, I'm a bit disappointed.

Chocolate Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
Good, pretty easy for a cheesecake, skipped the top layer as per reviews. I dunno, it seemed exceptionally heavy, even for a cheesecake.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
EDIT: So, I need to update my review because my boyfriend's father FLIPPED for these, saying they were the best cupcakes he's ever had. So maybe I was too harsh of a judge :) The icing comes out a bit too liquidy, had to add in more confectioners' sugar and even that it was still difficult to apply to the cupcakes. The cake part seemed a bit dry, next time I will cook even less.

Ghirardelli® Individual Chocolate Lava Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Super easy, came out with molten center, soft outside. But the flavor seemed a bit lacking. Probably won't make again.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
These were easy to make (although GREASE the pan, I didn't and they pb kept sticking to the pan and separating from the chocolate) although they weren't that amazing. Didn't taste as good as Reese's. Overall, not impressed, will not make again.

Little Mickey's Favorite Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
Great recipe! As far as cheesecakes go, this was super easy and came out great. Only thing I changed was excluding chopped peanuts from the crust, so I just added a bit more graham cracker. Next time I might cut the amount of chocolate chips in half, the chocolate seemed to overpower the peanut butter. All in all, a success and I will definitely make it again :)

Colleen's Potato Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
AMAZING!!!! Didn't change a single thing about the recipe, and they were easy to make and came out wonderfully! Baked for 12 minutes and they were wonderfully fluffy and delicious. One warning- this recipe yields A LOT of dinner rolls- might want to try freezing half the dough for later. Thanks for such a great recipe!

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
I have NO IDEA what people are talking about when they said this dough was sticky. When refrigerated for two hours and when you use flour on your work surface and flour the rolling pin, there is no need for wax paper, plastic wrap, etc. Its just fine! Only change I made was to use butter instead of shortening. This recipe was great when it was being baked with the pie filling (ie apple pie), however when it was baked on its own to serve as a crust for my chocolate creme pie, it was difficult to bake properly.

Devil's Food Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Mediocre at best. I constantly checked it in the oven to see if it was done, and one minute the toothpick came out wet and the next minute, it was clean but the cake was DRY! Not terrible, but I probably won't make it again.

Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Absolutely delicious!! I multiplied the crust by about 1.5x to make it nice and thick, and to be able to cover the sides. Everyone absolutely loved it, and other than adding more of the crust, I didn't change a thing. Would absolutely make again!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
Followed everyone's advice; used two cups of white sugar, one of brown, and half cup oil and half cup applesauce. Pumpkin bread's not really my thing, but the boyfriend I made it for loved it! Very easy and quick!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Recipe says ungreased cookie sheet, DO NOT LISTEN!! YOU MUST GREASE THE COOKIE SHEET WITH THESE COOKIES. I did not and ended up having to scrape the cookies off the sheet with a spatula. Good recipe, but I wouldn't go as far as to say its the best.
