McCormick® Gingerbread Men Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
These are very very good & soft gingerbread men:) Thanks so much for the recipe!!! although.....I made this batch x 4 so I didn't have quite enough molasses. I probably only used 3/4 of what the recipe called for, but you could still taste the molasses in the cookie. Also, I loved the softness of these, but I might keep them in the oven for 9 minutes next time just to give them a slight crunch, otherwise they just don't seem like genuine gingerbread men. BUT all around great, thanks so much!!!

Royal Icing II

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
This is good, I suppose for a gingerbread house. I used it to ice gingerbread men & it was very hard to work with. I think it would've helped to have more liquid in the recipe. It didn't stick very easy (kept coming off the cookies), peeled off on my hands......very messy & didn't taste the greatest either. Probably won't be using this again.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
This was fantastic, and although I had to amend the recipe a bit because I didn't have all of the ingredients...........I still think i'm able to give this 5 stars:) The flavor was even amazing on the "inside" of the chicken......it wasn't just the skin that had all of the flavor. I think this is because It marinated all day long & because there was marinade and garlic on the inside of the bird. SO, I replaced oregano for the thyme (don't like thyme), and a lil more black pepper in place of the white pepper (don't like white pepper either!). I didn't have any onions, so I put a few fresh cloves of garlic on the inside of the bird. ALSO I added melted butter to all of the spices to make a paste to put on the chicken............it was delicious!! Might cook it for less time though, the next time I make it.

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
This recipe is FANTASTIC!! I used golden syrup in place of the corn syrup as I didn't have any. When I was boiling the caramel it burnt really bad on the bottom (this could've been due to having a gas stove), so I will watch it more closely next time and put it on a lower heat. But I do have to say the slightly burnt taste was actually really good!! I might try putting a dab of the condensed milk mixed in with the chocolate so its not so hard on the top of the squares next time. Also.....the squares in the photo must've been a double batch of the caramel and chocolate or something because My layers were very small and I used a 9x9 pan. Next time I might try to double just the caramel part (makes sense too because 1/2 a cup is about half a can of condensed milk, so you might as well use the whole can!). Thanks for a great recipe!!! Just an update on these because i've made them a couple of times now........the caramel actually tastes A LOT better if you slighty burn it. Also, you need to keep them in the fridge otherwise they will start to go off within a couple of days. :)

Farm Macaroons

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
I have to say these tasted a lot better than the last Macaroon recipe I used from this site called "Coconut Macaroons", but the consistency was not right. I added extra coconut to try and help it, but they were way too soft & needed probably an extra 1/4 cup of flour and 1 cup of extra coconut. My egg whites were very large, that may be part of the reason, but still I think something needs to be adjusted. The flavor was very good though, I dipped them in dark chocolate, and for some I drizzled it over the top. I have to say WITH modifications I will consider making this again, but for the recipe on it's own, I have to give it 3 stars....sorry.

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
This is a fantastic classic lemon bar recipe! The crust is amazing.....and melt in your mouth good!! It is a bit on the sweet side for me though, might consider reducing the sugar next time. My friends all LOVED them & my husband is looking forward to the next time I make them:)

Grandma's Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
This stuff is SOOOO good! It seriously taste's just like brownie....so if you're too lazy to make a batch of brownies, make this. It is so easy to whip up....took me about 3-4 minutes to make all up. Only thing for is that once the hot fudge hit our ice cream, it sort of seized up & got chewy/hard. Not sure if this is because I didn't let the fudge cool before I put it onto the ice cream? But i've saved what was left over and will use it for the next time we have ice cream. Thanks Dianne for this very simple, fantastic chocolatey recipe!!!

T's Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
Fantastic recipe, the hubby and I loved it!!! Thanks so much. I probably would like it just as much with just salt & pepper seasoning, because it's the actual sweet potato itself that brings out the fantastic flavor. I used the sweet potato called "Kumara" that is very common over here in New Zealand.

Nice pancakes! Could use a tad more flavor, but the texture is really really good, and not too heavy.

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
Good Recipe! I did use black pepper, because I don't like white, and I didn't have onion powder. Also next time I'll replace the thyme with oregano because I don't like thyme.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
Firstly, these cookies did taste nice and they turned out soft. BUT they have way too much butter in them (and I am a butter LOVER), they fell apart and were too thin. I have a lot of experience baking cookies so I took all of the usual "precautions" and still couldn't get them to work. I left the dough in the fridge overnight to harden, and they still came out flat. I then rolled them all into balls and put them in the freezer. Still, after I froze them they still came out flat & it was really hard to get the design on the top to come out looking pretty. These are definitely NOT "Classic" peanut butter cookies. If I was to make these again, I would probably cut the butter in half and possibly add more PB/Flour. ALSO: they made approx 50 cookies, not the 24 as stated & I made regular size cookies.

Chococonut Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
The flavor was amazing for these cookies, but they turned out really really flat & the texture just wasn't right. I was really hoping I could get these to turn out because they tasted so good! Maybe they need more flour, i'm not too sure. I did halve the recipe, not sure if that made a difference.

Ranch Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
Delicious and Juicy burgers!!! Only giving it 4 stars because I think it could do with a bit of "oomf". Maybe some chilli and some more salt.

Chocolate Chip Cookies | Another Levain Copycat Recipe

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2010
I did not like these cookies - they cake out really crispy, even though I "under baked" them. I figured, maybe it's because I was suppose to make the cookies huge....so I made a really big one and it was the same. The next day they crazily turned soft!?! But I still didn't like the texture, they sort of fell apart when you picked them up.

Ricotta Cookies III

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2010
These cookies were very good......a great way to use up the ricotta cheese I had sitting in my fridge! The texture was more of a cakey texture than the normal chewy cookie texture. There's not a whole lot of actual flavor in the cookie, but they are very very easy to just pop "one more" in your mouth;)

Cilantro-Lime Rice

Reviewed: May 30, 2010

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
This Chicken was excellent! The garlic powder and lime juice kick was amazing!!! I wasn't fond of the thyme though, so I probably won't add it next time. And I didn't have parsley or onion powder. I used some basil and oregano instead.

Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
These Macaroons were nice. I dipped the bottom in dark chocolate which was a nice touch! Although the macaroons themselves didn't have much flavor, I won't be making these again. They def need more sugar and perhaps more salt. But I do have to say that they were very very easy to make!!
