Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
I made this banana bread according to the recipe (except I substituted chocolate chips for walnuts). YUM! It came out moist and delicious! I now want to buy over-ripened bananas just so I can make this again!

Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
Delicious! I was out of brown sugar so I used sucanat mixed with regular sugar, and cut the total sugar down to 3/4 cup. I also used plain yogurt instead of buttermilk and oil instead of shortnening. Finally, I was low on flour, so I used 1 1/4 cups white, and 1/4 cup whole wheat. The texture of the cookies was silky and thick, and they baked beautifully into cakey cookies. Not too chocolatey, which I liked a lot, and the walnuts were a great addition. I will definitely make these again!

Amish Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
I used this recipe to make challah bread for my vegan roommate. I adapted it a little so it would be more similar to the challah I usually make--I substituted honey for sugar and used a combination of whole wheat and white flour. This bread was delicious and moist. Thank you for giving me a vegan alternative to my normal bread recipe!

Cranberry Nut Granola Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
I keep making these over and over again! The most recent incarnation was 1 3/4 cups of old fashioned oats, 1 cup roasted sunflower seeds, 1/2 cup almonds, 1/2 cup craisins, and 1 1/2 cup rice crispies. I also line the parchment paper with rice crispies to make the bottoms even less sticky. I've been making different versions of these bars for almost 6 months and have had nothing but positive reviews from people who have tried them. Excellent recipe!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
I wish I could give this more stars because it was amazing! I did make some notable changes (to make it healthier and based on what I had in the house)--I used oil instead of butter, plain yogurt instead of sour cream, and dried apricots instead of raisins. I also threw in a dash of lemon extract. My only problem was they took around twice as long to bake. This will be a great breakfast tomorrow morning!

Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
Moist and delicious! I added Hershey's chocolate chunks and around 1/4 cup of soymilk. I used 3 very very mushy bananas. Only main difference from the directions--It took around an hour in the oven instead of 45 minutes.

Whiskey Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
It did taste like butterscotch! It also smelled and tasted amazing. My only problem-the texture was a bit weird in places--I'm not sure if this is because of the syrup or because I used a cake from a mix.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 15, 2012
Really delicious and moist! I tend to make changes to all recipes, but the changes to this weren't major. I used oil instead of butter, and substituted 3/4 cup of a white sugar/brown sugar combination for the 1 cup of white sugar. I also used plain yogurt instead of sour cream. My oven is tiny and temperamental, so I cooked it for only 45-50 minutes at 350F. Came out incredible!

Blueberry Oat Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
Straight out of the oven, these are the best cookies you will ever taste! I used a scant half cup of canola oil instead of butter and cut the sugar down to 3/4 cup. They were still a little sweet for me (I usually cut the sugar in half when I cook), but the texture is PERFECT. I used freshly picked blueberries from a nearby farm. I might have to go pick more so that I can make these again!

Gingerbread Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
Delicious! I used a whole egg for the scone, instead of using the white for the wash, and substituted canola oil for butter. I also threw in some grated candied ginger and chopped dried apples. This was moist and delicious.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
Excellent cookies! My fiance loved them! My only issues were that I wished the pumpkin taste was stringer (I'll probably add more pumpkin next time), and that the cookies hardened/became stale very quickly. When I baked them on Friday they were moist and cakelike, but by Saturday night they were kind of dry.

Light Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
overall, not a bad bread. I let the yeast proof before adding the other ingredients, cut the salt back a little, and also threw in some sunflower seeds. Nevertheless, the bread was kind of bland. Next time I'm going to try adding olive oil instead of canola, and maybe honey instead of sugar. tasteless.

Gingerbread Boy Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
dough was a bit crumbly and tough to work with when I got it out of the refrigerator. Also, I needed to wait until the molasses mixture cooled more before adding the eggs. The cookies, however, were delicious and were eaten quickly by my chocaholic family--nice to know non-chocolate desserts go too!

really fun and easy to make...nice yeasty taste and chewy texture. I made beer rolls/muffins since I didn't have a loaf pan, but it came out great! tastes good with roasted apples.

Lemon Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: May 12, 2013
Moist and delicious. I used a half-and-half mix of whole wheat flour and white flour and it tastes great! Next time I think I'll try brown sugar instead of white.

Potato Latkes I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
I made these Latkes with regular white potatoes (it took 3 potatoes to get 2 cups shredded). Followed the directions to a T, though strained the potatoes in a mesh sieve since I don't have any cheesecloth in the house. Fried in canola oil. As promised, delicious, crispy on the outside, tender on the inside! Will make again!

Dilled Sole with Almonds

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
I made this with flounder fillets, since that was what I had in the freezer. They didn't cook well on the stovetop, so I baked them in the oven for 15-ish minutes at 350 F. End result was delicious!

Cranberry Swirl Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I made a few minor changes and it was delicious! I used 3/4 cup sugar, vanilla extract (I didn't have almond), and I made it in an 8x8 square pan. I think I added a little bit extra cranberry sauce and I'm glad I did! It might have been easier for me to make in a tube pan but it was delicious nonetheless.
