Storybook Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
Dark, spicey, but still retain their sweetness. The proper thickness keeps them soft, baked for 6 minutes then let cool for 5 before transferring to wire racks. Delicious!

Breadsticks with Parmesan Butter

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
Five stars. These are amazing. I made the recipe as stated (halved it), kneaded, rose (45 minutes, didn't look very 'risen' but went with it anyways) and then formed into sticks, rose again (same as before, but for ten minutes or so) and then baked. Before they baked I put 1/4 melted butter, 1 clove of a garlic bulb and about 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese into the magic bullet and then spread that on them. I did it again right when they came out (after about 15 minutes). Then I used the actual recipe guidelines (1/2 cup butter, 2 tablespoons cheese and 1/4 tsp garlic powder) as a dipping sauce. Again, these were incredible. They did come out pretty heavy, which some people like and some people don't. Maybe it's just something I did (I'm not much of a cook) but my husband loves the 'heft' of them as he put it. I also made them VERY big, I wasn't sure how big they'd get in the oven and they did get quite large, so in the future I'll make them smaller. I only got 10 sticks out of halving the recipe so that gives you an idea. These were so easy! The hardest part was waiting for them to rise. I will definitely make them again - Tonight I made them with the italian sausage soup from this site and it felt like we were out at a restaurant for dinner :)

Watercress Pesto

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
Delicious! I always made pesto with basil before, but this time I didn't have any basil - just parsley and watercress. This watercress was delicious!! I added a couple tablespoons of EVOO to help it blend better, though that may not even be necessary with a real food processor (I was using a magic bullet). I omitted the walnuts because I didn't have any, and it was still perfect. And substituted parmesan cheese from the can instead of fresh because we were out of fresh.

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
This crust was delicious and easy to make. Light and flaky. I didn't have a rolling pin so I used a bottle of wine, which was kind of annoying but it still came out. It isn't a sweet crust, I'd probably add sugar if I was making it for a dessert. I used it for chicken pot pie and it was great. I also didn't need the whole amount of water, I just added a couple tablespoons at a time till it was a good consistency. And I didn't need to use ice water or refrigerate it before using it in my recipe. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it's only the first one like this I've made, but it was really really good.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
These were awesome. Pretty easy to make, aesthetically pleasing, and soft on the inside. Just don't misread and add baking SODA instead of baking POWDER. Oops. And ugh.

Chocophiles

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
Delicious. I changed it a little bit though - I used 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup shortening for the butter part. I melted these with 2 ounces of unsweetened bakers chocolate (didn't have the pre-melted stuff) , and for the other 2 ounces of chocolate I used cocoa powder. For the eggs I creamed them up by themselves first, and added an extra egg yolk to them. I also used three teaspoons of vanilla extract instead of two. And I added a few reeses pieces candy in to the mixture, for the husband :) As far as I can tell they are soft and delicious - I just hope they stay soft!

Dutch Apple Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
I made this pie last Thanksgiving, and it was DELICIOUS. I took it to a dessert get together at our friends house and the entire pie was gone within half an hour. Luckily, I made two so I could have an extra at home :) A note: Don't cut up the topping mixture too much or it doesn't get that good crumble like a dutch apple pie is supposed to have. With the first pie I mixed the topping too much and that's what happened - the mixture was too smooth and baked into a smooth top. The second one I didn't mix up the mixture as much and the topping was great. Also, I added caramel ice cream topping sauce, drizzled over the apples before putting on the topping - AMAZING. I'm not sure if it was the caramels fault, but the filling was a little bit more runny than I'd like, so next time I may add more flour to thicken it up. Also, the apples were a little more crunchy than I'd like, so I would also recommend baking for just a little longer. I didn't have any parchment paper so I skipped it and they still came out great :)
