Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
YUM! I absolutely love these! The only changes I made were to add 1/4 cup of extra flour, as another reviewer suggested, and I only used 1/2 a teaspoon of almond extract for the glaze instead of 3/4. Mine did not spread at all, but after I pressed them and put the jam in the centers I popped them in the freezer for about 3 - 5 minutes before putting them in the oven. These are really delicious, and I'll be making them again!

Delightful Apple Spice Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
These were SO good! The only changes I made were to halve the recipe, since I live by myself, and I used twice the cinnamon since I didn't have any allspice. These turned out great, very moist and great flavor.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
These were so delicious! I omitted the walnuts since I didn't have any, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. My one complaint is the baking time. Even after baking an extra 5 minutes they still turned out a lot goo-ier than I expected, but they still tasted great, and my family ate them up.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
I LOVE this taco seasoning! I use about 2 tbsp. per pound of meat, and it is perfect for me. It's spicy, but not too much, and it's definitely better than the store bought packets. I left out the cumin since I didn't have any. I made lots of extra so I can have it every time I make tacos now.

Emily's Famous Marshmallows

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
These are very good, but there is too much vanilla. Next time I will only use half as much, maybe less.

Poppy Seed Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
The baking time for this is too long - I baked mine for a little less than 50 minutes and it was slightly overdone. Next time I'll shorten it to 40 - 45 minutes. But, other than that, this bread is very delicious, with or without spreading butter on it.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
These are so good! I did brush them with butter after they came out of the oven, and the bottoms did get vary dark, even with the rack at the top, so next time I will turn down the heat a little. But these tasted amazing; I would even say better than Auntie Anne's at the mall! I will be making these again for my family and friends soon.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
These are so delicious! The only thing I changed in the recipe was that I cut the nutmeg down to 1/4 tsp. and added 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon, since I am not a huge fan of nutmeg and I love cinnamon. These little treats are so addictive! I made them last night and cannot stop eating them. I do want to add, however, that mine ended up a slight bit over-cooked, and they were only in for ten minutes.

Biscuits for Two

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
These were really good, I did add some baking soda as someone else suggested. I rolled these out and used them to make apple dumplings, and they worked very well. Will be using this recipe again.

Easy Pudding Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
First of all, I cut this recipe in half since I didn't have enough flour. Then, I used Pumpkin Spice pudding instead, and I didn't have any chocolate chips, so I used a Hershey's cookies and cream bar that I had lying around. They came out absolutely delicious! I expected them to be more pumpkin-y from the pumpkin pudding, but they are still delicious! I will definitely be making them again, and trying them with different puddings and choc. chips.

Cracked Sugar Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I'm giving this three stars because the cookies were easy to make and they come out looking beautiful. But there is too much shortening in the reci; all I can taste is shortening and sugar. I think using butter instead and using a bit less would work much better. If I use this recipe again, it'll have to be tweaked.

Fluffy White Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
This icing is absolutely delicious! Although I'm not sure if it will go very well with the white cake I made, it does taste good.

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
Great recipe. Mine turned out kind of heavy and thick, but I figured out that it was because I used all-purpose flour instead of cake flour. I didn't use almond extract, but added the extra milk that others have suggested. Great flavor, will definitely make again with cake flour!

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
This was really good, except I used regular milk instead of soy milk and blueberries instead of strawberries, since that's what I had. Flavors nice, but the blueberry skins wouldn't grind up. I also added a shot of orange juice, which added a little sourness to the sweetness of the banana and blueberries.

Authentic French Meringues

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2008
These were very simple to make. Even for me! This was my first time seriously cooking anything, so I was pleased that they turned out. They were absolutely delicious and my family loved them!
