Never Fail Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Dear Becky, We love you, errr, your cookies. Seriously, delicious recipe. As written, delicious, chewy and appeals to a wide demographic (our Japanese friends raved over them!); slightly modified (aka, 1/2 of the sugar)-still delicious, slightly crispy, and our friends still rave. We do let the dough sit in the fridge for 10-15 minutes before we drop them on a sheet. And out of the many times that we've made these, only once have we used the full amount of sugar. 1.5 cups is a lot of sugar. That + chocolate is WAY too much sugar! Very unhealthy! We make these cookies a bit too often . . . if you get my drift! Thanks for the recipe!

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Tortillas are quite possibly my favorite food-versatile, flexible, and abso-friggen-lutely delicious. For the longest time, I was scared as heck to make my own. Surely it would be obscenely difficult. Nope. Easy peasy and abso-friggen-lutely delicious! Thanks LaDonna for a great recipe! I used shortening instead of lard, but they still turned out wonderfully! I've made tortillas a handful of times since the end of December! Love them!!!!

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
Really delicious! I made it as written; it wasn't quite thick enough for my hubs & my taste. Next time I'll add a bit more cornstarch. The sugar we use (apparently) has more water in it than granulated sugar, so this may have a big impact. The chocolate flavor was excellent; if you like uber sweet, up the sugar. I made this for a friend who had a wisdom tooth removed and was kinda scared about giving it to her (cause I burned it a lil . . .oops!), but it tasted alright even though it was a bit burned. It was still delicious and we ate the leftovers really quickly!! :) Thanks for this great recipe!

Butterscotch Oatmeal

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Yum! We omitted the butter and cut some of the sugar (didn't measure but I know it wasn't half a cup!), and added cinnamon. For our elevation, we needed a bit more than 1 cup of oats for the milk; we used about 1 1/3. Absolutely delicious! Next time, we'll cut milk and cook some apples along with it! :)

Uglies

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
We didn't use the recipe. We looked at it as a concept and then made it our own. Using the whole wheat biscuit recipe found on this site, we made our dough (after tweaking it a bit!), and then used what we had on hand. In our uglies we put carrots, beef, onion, green & red peppers, our homemade BBQ sauce and a bit of mozzarella on top. These cooking times didn't work for us, but we think that is because we have a small convection oven and it can't run at a high heat. Our power supply is kinda low (we're living in Japan). BUT, we love this recipe. It is super easy and amazingly modifiable!

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
We've tried this recipe 3 times now. The first time was as written. The result was a biscuit that tasted like baking powder. The second time we reduced the baking powder to 3 teaspoons (from 4) and still the biscuit was overwhelmed. The third time, we increased all ingredients by half (so we made 1.5 recipe). All except the baking powder, that is. Instead we decreased the baking soda to 3 teaspoons, when it should have been 6. Finally, the biscuit was not overwhelmed by baking soda. Milk-The recipe, as is, calls for 1 cup of milk. The first two times, we only added 1/2 cup of milk before it was a good consistency. The third time, because we changed it, the recipe called for 1.5 cups milk. We only put in 1 cup. So, for milk, think 2/3 of what this recipe calls for! The 3rd time, the dough was very wet and DH had to keep flouring his hands but the result was a not dry and absolutely delicious biscuit. We don't have whole wheat flour (can't find it here!), so we just use All- purpose flour. We used this recipe to help us make Uglies (found on allrecipes). Making a recipe & a half, made 12 uglies and 6 smallish biscuits.

Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
We've made this a couple times. The first time we made the cupcakes using the exact recipe. They turned out splendidly. We used silicone baking cups and a small glass cake pan to make cupcakes & a small cake. The cupcake had a bit of difficulty coming out of the baking cup, but we believe that was because we didn't let them cool long enough before removing them. The second time we cut the sugar to 1 cup and changed it to 3/4 cup white and 1/4 cup brown sugar. We used 1/4 cup tofu in place of one egg. We added a bit more cocoa because there was cocoa in our tofu (we tried to make tofu pudding and couldn't get small enough chunks, so we used it in this recipe!) The next time we make this, we are going to try to replace both eggs with tofu and maybe cut the sugar a bit more (3/4 cup?). Overall this is a delightful recipe. It doesn't need frosting-it is very sweet by itself.

French Bread

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
Per other reviewers suggestions, we added extra salt and 5 cups of flour provided us with beautiful dough. We also added 1 tps of sugar. One loaf we baked with egg white spread over it. With the other loaf, we made a garlic butter/basil spread and put it in the loaf before we rolled it up. Then after letting it rise, instead of putting egg white on top, we spread more of our garlic butter/basil mixture. Delish! The inside of our bread is more dense than traditional french bread. How do we combat this? We are rookie breadmakers, so we're sure this is something that can be improved upon. Thanks!

Cheese Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
Quick & Easy! I made a few adjustments, i.e. no chives and substituted milk/butter for shortening. The result was a tasty, but semi-bland and thick/heavy (tasting) biscuit. Next time, I'll still use the milk/butter sub but add just a tad more milk, as well as more garlic.
