Coconut Oatmeal Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
These are delicious! I just pulled a batch out of the oven and they taste fabulous when they're warm. My only change is that I baked them on parchment rather than greasing the sheet and they came out perfect. I agree with the reviewers who said to take them out before they look all the way cooked. Mine were barely turning brown around the edges and still looked raw in the middle, but after they cooled for a few mintues, they were just wonderful. Thanks for this recipe, I'll definitely be making them again.

Cashew Snaps

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
These are delicious! I made the recipe as is, no alterations. They did not spread too much at all. I wouldn't call them "snaps" because they are chewy, but I prefer chewy cookies so they're perfect. Unlike other reviewers, I didn't have a problem with the cookies spreading too much. I used real butter and softened it by smashing it up with a wooden spoon rather than the microwave. That might be why they didn't get super thin in the oven.

Praline Pumpkin Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
This pie was fantastic tasting. I roasted a fresh pumpkin from my garden and pureed the flesh rather than using the canned stuff. My only problem was that the bottom of the pie stuck to the pie plate. I read all the reviews and no one else seemed to have the problem, so perhaps my pie shell had a crack on the bottom and some of the sticky praline goodness leaked out. I think I will probably try making this again though because it was so tasty!

Afghan Tomato Soup (Aush Goshti)

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
I made this recipe on a whim because I had a can of tomato juice in the pantry and no one wanted to drink it. I exchanged black beans for the garbanzo beans because that's all I had, and I used Trader Joe's lemon pepper pasta which really enhanced the lemon flavor. I enjoyed this as something different, but my kids didn't go for it, so I'll enjoy a whole lot of leftovers. Thanks for the recipe.

Tamra's Microwave Tilapia

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
This is surprisingly good! Like other skeptics, I wasn't sure about microwaving fish, but I only had a few minutes to come up with something for lunch and I had some tilapia fillets in the fridge. I didn't have any apple cider so I put a splash of lemon juice on each fillet before cooking, and fillets were gobbled down by myself and the kids in about the same time it took to cook them! They were especially tasty with fresh tarragon from my garden. My fillets took the full 4 minutes of cooking time, but I did check them after flipping them as it seems that other reviewers took only 3 total minutes. Must depend on the thickness of the fillets. I also put a pinch of kosher salt on each fillet after cooking and that made them just perfect.

Rhubarb Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
I didn't have any blueberries on hand, so I made these with 1 1/2 cups fresh rhubarb that I had chopped up and refrigerated overnight with a little sugar to soften the fruit. I also added an extra 1/2 t. baking powder as others suggested, plus a spash of lemon juice. They were very good.

Real Strawberry Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
These cupcakes are really delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't have any fresh lemons to zest, so I used lime zest instead. The strawberry version tasted so wonderful that I tried puree blueberries too and they also came out very tasty and moist. I will definitely keep this recipe handy because they are a nice treat for pot lucks and family functions.

Lemon Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
These muffins are very tasty. I baked them in mini muffin tin so I cut the temp from 400 to 375 and they took about 18 minutes to cook. I also left off the sugary glaze just because of personal preference. For the reviewers who came out rubbery muffins - DO NOT OVER MIX! I gently folded the wet mix into the dry mix with a rubber spatula about 5 or 6 times and that's all it took to blend everything. I will make these again.

Tantalizing Turkey and Blue Cheese Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
These meatballs are excellent! I substituted a small can of mild green chilies for the jalapenos just because I don't like super spicy food. I also cut the black pepper down to 1 tsp per other reviews, and these are truly the best meatballs I've ever eaten. For those who complained that the mix was so wet...the wetter the meat mix, the moister the meatballs. Roll them gently and place them on the cookie sheet, they will bake perfectly. Thanks for the recipe!

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
These are tasty cookies and super easy to throw together at a moments notice. I tried the butter pecan cake mix as another reviewer suggested and threw in 1/2 cup oatmeal to help stiffen the dough and they were delicious. Watch carefully though since if they start to brown along the edges they may already be overbaked on the bottom.
