Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
I am so excited I finally got these to work! I have tried them many times and they always turned out like hard and dry pieces of bread. When I tried to roll the ropes they constantly crumbled and fell apart. A few things I FINALLY did right (for those who are also struggling): 1. I added A LOT less flour - I made 1/2 batch and probably left about 2/3 cup of flour out and still had to add a few tbsp of water. 2. I timed my kneading - I think I was way under-kneading. 3. when I mixed the baking soda and water I used the hottest water I could get out of my tap AND put it in the microwave for 45 sec. The baking soda still didn't totally dissolve but they did turn out more pretzel-brown. I only gave 4 stars because they still aren't quite as good as the mall ones and they don't have that perfect brown crust you usually find on pretzels. Still a great snack to make though!

Baked Mac and Cheese for One

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
This recipe is amazing! I have had homemade Mac & Cheese that friends have made in the past and have always been disappointed because it turns out dry and greasy and half the time is made with a bottle of alfredo sauce! I tried this recipe and was extremely impressed. The cheese sauce is so creamy, I honestly didn't realize you could make such a creamy sauce without processed cheese. It is also really nice to have a recipe written for a singe serving! Just a note - based on sauces I've made in the past I didn't add quite as much flour as the recipe called for.

Chocolate Caramel Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
Absolutely Amazing! I have made these on quite a few occasions, and people rave about them every time. Honestly, these have made me kind of a baking celebrity within my circle of friends. The recipe is a little strange at first, but with practice it becomes easier. Definitely worth the extra effort - I don't really bother making any other type of brownies anymore!

Speedy Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
I made these brownies because I needed something quick and I already had all the ingredients in my kitchen. I wasn't unhappy with the results, but I wasn't necessarily all that pleased. They are definitely moist, but kind of a strange consistency - I wouldn't say fudgy, more like a dense, super-moist cake. There is a lot of sugar in the recipe, but surprisingly, the brownies are not all that sweet. The chocolate chips definitely help a lot though. Overall, I would say these may be ok for pleasing a crowd, but don't really have that made-from-scratch homemade taste.
