Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
I found this recipe good, but too sweet. I doubled the crumb topping as per reviews in order to cover a 9 x 13 pan. I don't know if that's what made it too sweet or whether there is just too much sugar in the topping recipe. I only used 1/4 cup of water, but next time, I'd use 1/8 or none at all. This does make a great oatmeal topping. I made regular oatmeal, spooned some of this apple crisp on top, microwaved it, and de-lish. Better than store bought apple cinnamon oatmel.

Pasta Primavera Sauce

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
Most delicious sauce (with additions). I pretty much followed the recipe except that I used a frozen garden vegetable mix (corn, bell pepper, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots) instead of following the specifics of what the recipe asked for. I didn't have a bay leaf so I didn't use it. I doubled the sugar to take out a little of the bitterness. And what made it great (I think) - I added a dashes of cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. Yum!

Master Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
This pizza dough has really nice texture and the right amount of fluffiness. I did the original recipe version first, and it wasn't anything special taste-wise. I then did the garlic-herbed version (I used 1/4 tsp of garlic powder and 1 tablespoon of rosemary). The bottom tasted like foccacia. Heavenly! The ordinary version is a 4; the herbed version is a 5.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
This was delicious! I used only 1 tablespoon of honey, and omitted the anchovy paste, cayenne pepper, and marjoram (didn't have any). The paste I used was already seasoned with Italian herbs, so I don't know if that helped, but the whole thing was d-lish. This will be my go-to recipe.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
This was fantastic! I got compliments on it. I took some of the suggestions. I did cook the chicken and veggies and broth, and then later use that broth to make the gravy. I added 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder. I mixed the chicken/veggie mixture with the roux before adding to the pie. I thought it was delicious, and it didn't come out dry at all. Some personal changes I made were to add in about a cup of corn, and swap out the peas for cut string beans. These changes made so much filling that I needed two pies. Wonderful! Thanks so much!

Crumb-Coated Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Delicious! I got compliments on this. The mixture is a tad salty, though -- next time I'll cut it down to 3/4 to see if that does the trick. I didn't use any paprika, so I didn't use it. I also didn't have bread crumbs, so I used crushed unsalted saltine crackers. Overall, great! Everything came out juicy and delicious!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
I have made these pancakes the original way (with just soymilk and ener-g egg for subs) and they were good but had a baking soda/vinegar/salty kind of aftertaste. So I ended up going and changing most things. I know, people hate that in a reviewer! But just in case you want to try: I use self rising flour, so I admit the baking powder and salt, though I do add baking soda. I add a couple of splashes of vanilla. I don't use any egg at all - entirely not necessary. For the curdle mixture, I only use about 10% of the milk called for, and only add in about 2 splashes of vinegar to the milk/butter mix. For the rest of the liquid I use seltzer. Delicious, no aftertaste!

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
ngsA good start. I just made it. I should have looked at the reviews more thoroughly. I used all-purpose flour, and 1 cup water was just way too much. I was surprised at how much flour I had to add to the flour after rising, but that was because I hadn't read the reviews. Because so much flour had to be added at the end, and because I didn't do any kneading, the bread came out ok, but dense-like. I cooked it at 350 degrees, but by the time the crust was done, the cheese was over-done. Oh, and I also added 1.5 teaspoons of garlic powder and 1.5 teaspoons of Italian seasoning in the mix. Here's what I would do next time: 1) add enough flour to the mix the first time to make it kneadable, and then knead for 10 min or so, until it passes the window pane test. Keep the special seasonings in. 2) Let rise. 3) Spread dough out on cornmeal sprinkled pan. 4) Pre-cook for 7 min at 400. 5) Add topics and then cook until done.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
Delicious! My cookies came out pretty soft--more cake-like than cookie-like, and they were wonderful. I don't eat eggs so I used egg replacer for that. Also, I didn't have any molasses so I substituted 1/8 cup honey with just under 1/8 cup brown sugar. Other than those two adjustments, I followed the recipe exactly. Thanks so much for the recipe!

French Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Really nice. This was my first successful yeast bread. I didn't have a bread machine, so I proofed the yeast in warm water with a tspn of sugar and kneaded for about 15 min by hand. I halved the recipe because I didn't need so much bread, and it was fine. I ended up using about 2 and 3/4 cup of flour. I doubled the amount of salt as some others suggested. I didn't use melted butter because I hadn't seen those reviews yet, but I may use it the next time just to see what everyone else is talking about. I don't eat eggs so I sprayed olive oil on the bread to get it crunchy. I also kept a pan of hot water in the oven while the bread was cooking, at that helped it to get nice and crunchy too. My bread took 40 min at 375. Well, it may have been somewhere between 350 and 375. Nice bread. Thanks a lot!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
I have finally found my perfect pumpkin bread recipe-- no need to look any further. It was fabulous. I did make minor changes, though: I added a teaspoon of nutmeg, and because I don't eat dairy, I used egg replacer to match 4 eggs (the egg replacer also has a lot less calories). Next time I will replace half the oil with applesauce-- I've had success with that with other types of recipes. But this recipe was so good, I now feel free to stop researching this bread and look for other vegetable/fruit breads to play with! Thanks so much!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
This was fantastic, and I didn't even have to add icing! I did use the active dry yeast instead of instant, but just proofed it before adding it to the mixed like others suggested. I halved the recipe because the recipe makes rolls that are rather large. It is important to note that the milk mixture (and the water you use to proof if you are using regular yeast) is lukewarm and not hot. I messed up my first version by using liquids that were too hot-- they killed the yeast. This second (successful) time, by accident, I raised the dough before shaping it into the cinnamon roll shape, so that when they rose a second time in the pan, they came all unformed. Next time I will make sure to rise the dough only once time. But those are my errors. The recipe is great. Those cinnamon rolls are delicious! I will make this again.

Perfect Baked Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I didn't have time to marinate more than 10 minutes, but this was great anyway! I doubled the amount of thyme. I was nervous about the lack of heat some other reviewers commented on, so I doubled the pepper, but that was too hot for me! Next time, I'll use the normal amount of pepper. Great recipe, thanks!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Nice chicken! I got compliments on it. I thought it was a little dry though, but that could be adjusted by the cooking time. I only used one chicken at the 250 degrees, and I don't know why, but it got done quickly (less than 2.5 hrs). I wasn't watching the chicken, so it probably got a little over done. I think I would start checking it after 2 hours or so. The drippings make great gravy, but were a little salty, so I would probably use a little less. Overall, great recipe, nice flavor, thanks!

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Really nice! I got compliments on these. I followed the recipe exactly, only I didn't use the marjoram or the dill weed because I didn't have them. The 20 minutes was the perfect timing. They were delicious--thanks for the recipe! Update-- I also tried this by doubling the recipe, coating chicken and potatoes, and baking everything in one pot--- delicious!!

Spanish Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
I used tomato sauce instead of diced tomatos, so perhaps that is where this went wrong. It didn't taste very flavored at all. I probably would not use this recipe again.

Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This was delicious and very close to the mixes I get in the box. However, it was a little salty, so I would cut down on that. Next time I will only use 1 can of tomato sauce or less, so that it won't get too tomato-ey. I didn't have any saffron so I didn't use any. I used brown rice, and it came out just fine. Overall, great-- thanks!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
Really nice recipe. Tastes just like how pancakes should taste, and very simple to make. I halved the recipe to make fewer pancakes, and ended up having to add a little bit more water to achieve the right consistency. I added in ground flax (for nutrition) into the pancake mix and it came out great--couldn't even taste the flax.
