Death by Chocolate

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Used a Duncan Hines Decadent Triple Chocolate cake mix---it had fudge in the mix and really added an extra rich touch!!! Also used Kahlua instead of coffee and real whipped cream instead of cool whip. Tasted great with the toffee but even better for the candy bar was Reeses NutRageous.

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
The name describes these perfectly. I used whole wheat white flour, and they were still delicious. Liked them best with no frosting because it made them a little too sweet (and I have a huge sweet tooth). My husband told me he will never be able to eat another cinnamon roll after tasting these! The only negative was that they don't keep well the next day, but get a little chewy and tough.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
This recipe has a 5-star rating for a reason. They are wonderful cookies! I even "healthified" mine and they were still yummy(blackstrap molasses and whole wheat blend flour.)

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
I used to make a different whole wheat crust that I loved, so I was reluctant to try something new...but wow, am I glad I did! This was SO good. It was not as bread-like as other whole wheat crusts (unless you let it rise for longer than directed). I let mine rise only 15min in the microwave after I nuked a cup of water for a minute to make it warm. I rolled it out onto a pizza stone dusted with corn meal. I pre-baked at 425 for 7min. Afterwards, I brushed the edges with olive oil and sprinkled with parmesian and garlic. Then I topped with sauce, mozzerella, feta, tomatos, pepper rings, red onions. I sprinkled basil and a touch of olive oil over the whole thing and baked at 425 for 15 minutes. [One more thing--I subbed oat bran for the wheat germ.] Perfect, chewy, delicious! Thank you so much; this will be my new recipe from now on!

Rosemary Chicken with Orange-Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
Wow, this one is a keeper. Make sure to use real maple syrup..the sauce boiled down nice and thick because of it. Very sweet and sticky, yet has a tangy zip to it too. The perfect blend of flavors. Yum, yum, yum.

Excellent! Made with the Homemade Spinach Noodles on this site. Didn't have any mushrooms :( but was still good. Took the advice of another reviewer and added red and orange bell peppers, some garlic and basil...yum!

Neapolitan Cookies I

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
Sliced just a little thicker than 1/4" and baked these guys for only 9 min at 350F, and they were not hard at all. They kept soft in a Ziplock for the next day as well. They didn't last past 24 hrs, so I can't tell if they keep longer than that! I left the nuts out. I also doubled the chocolate, used vanilla and almond extract for the white layer, and strawberry extract for the pink. They taste sort of like a sugar cookie, but you can distinguish each individual flavor. Yummy. Cute as a button too.

Best Ever Chocolate Cutout Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
Mine were soft and tasty. Very chocolatey. I did add the extra egg and vanilla like others said. Baked at 325 for 7 minutes on parchment paper so they were soft.

Super Crunch Oven Cooked Honey Dipped Wings

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
This was fantastic! I used chicken tenders instead of wings. Didn't have any cornflakes so I used Uncle Sam cereal. It was just the right amount of spicy for us, but it does have a kick! Overall this was easy to make, yummy, and much healthier than fried chicken. I will be putting this in the regular rotation.

Coconut Cream Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
yum! This beats the other recipe I was using. I used unsweetened, dried coconut and moistened it in water. I used coconut oil instead of butter. I had no cream of tartar for my meringue, so I heated 1/3 cup cold water plus 1 tbsp cornstarch until just thickened (stir often!), cooled it, and whipped it into the whites after the sugar. No sweating or beading this way and it won't alter the taste as much as cream of tartar. The result was delicious!!!!!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
Even better than the other pumpkin pancakes I was making! Subbed dry pancake mix for the dry ingredients and added applesauce in place of 1/2 the oil.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
This was a delicious pie, and I don't even like banana cream. I only had 2 bananas, so couldn't use four, but 2 worked fine. Topped with meringue. Everything came together perfectly and it set up like a charm. Will make again!
