Skillet Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
I'm always looking for ways to use dates, and everyone loves these, but I thought they were called "Date Balls". You can also roll them in dessicated coconut. (Actually, instead of rolling them, it's easier to put the powdered sugar or coconut into a ziplock bag and put 3 or 4 balls in at a time, then shake them to cover them evenly.)

Potunas

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
Usually when I try something different, my kids give it the thumbs down, but we all liked this one.

Peanut Butter Fingers III

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2005
I make these often, and I've never had any problem with them - well, except that I can't stop eating them...

Irish Potato Candy

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2005
My son's class were supposed to be farmers, so I put a bunch of these in a little crate, with a sign saying "Potatoes for Sale". They were a big hit.

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2005
Mmmmmm.... I don't like coffee, but I didn't notice any unpleasant taste of coffee - just a rich chocolatey taste. (And thanks to the reviewers who explained that 1/4 tsp baking soda should be added to regular cocoa to substitute for Dutch process - I didn't know that.)

Portuguese Sweet Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2005
This bread was great, and everyone in the family said it was the best bread I've made yet with our new bread machine. I can't give it 5 stars, though, because it did rise up too much. Luckily, I had read the other reviews and was watching out for this, and I sort of punched it down (so the top didn't look so nice). But it was very tasty, and I'll be making it again.

Delicious Chocolate Cornflake Cakes

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2005
I tasted these while they were still hot and I wasn't too impressed... but after they were refrigerated for a while, I couldn't stop eating them! They're more like candies than cakes, but very easy and delicious.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2005
I thought these were great - and really easy. I didn't have any trouble getting them out of the pan. My children didn't like them, though...

Cream Filled Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2005
I printed this out a long time ago and just got around to making it; they were definitely worth the effort. I piped the cream through the top and then frosted them with chocolate frosting. My kids loved them, too.

Cherry Chip Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2005
I thought the looks and the texture were fine, but the flavor wasn't what I expected. I couldn't really taste the cherry - maybe it was kind of overwhelmed by the cinnamon?

Fatoosh

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2005
I live in a Arab country, and this fatoosh is very authentic. There are never any leftovers; even the children love it. (I wouldn't add pickles, but to each her own...)

Jewel Swirls

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2005
These looked and tasted great. I didn't refrigerate them again after rolling - I just used dental floss to cut them, and they were fine. I use parchment paper on the cookie sheets; the cookies never stick, and there's nothing to clean up. (I don't know how one reviewer got a gooey mess - she didn't actually make the gelatin first, did she?)

Chicken Sandwich Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2005
The flavor was OK, but none of us cared for the texture - especially the kids. I was thinking that it might be better with a layer of noodles where the bread was... but then I might as well just make the easy chicken tetrazzini recipe at this site.

Grandma Snyder's Oatmeal Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2005
I didn't know what to expect from this, but it was great! My children loved it, too.

Tea Time Tasties

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2000
I made these for the Eid (celebration at the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan) and they were very popular. I used 2 cups of chopped walnuts, and I still had some lot left over - I think 1-1/2 cups might be enough. I also added some cinnamon to the filling.

Lamingtons

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2000
These ended up tasting good, and my kids liked them, but I had a hard time making them. This is probably due more to my inexperience than with the recipe, but when I tried to dip the pieces of cake, they kept breaking off in the chocolate... Maybe some extra tips for us novices?

Triple Layer Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2000
They were easy, delicious, and the three layers gave them a nice look. They might be good with chopped nuts sprinkled on top. Also, you can melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave.
