Key Lime Pie VI

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This pie tastes like heaven. I can't have dairy, so I was searching for a key lime pie without condensed milk, and this is just what I was looking for! I used ginger wafer cookies from Trader Joes to make a crust, which paired well with the lime. I also used 1/2 c lime juice and no zest (just because I used lime juice I had frozen earlier), and it turned out perfect.

Luck o' the Irish Brownie

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
I thought this was pretty good. The reason I am giving it four stars instead of five is that I made a couple of small changes, and I think if I had made it as written, it would have been way too sweet. I made a half recipe, and used only 1 cup powdered sugar for the frosting. Also just used plain melted chocolate chips for the top layer.

Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
I didn't care for this. I didn't have any trouble with clumping, but it came out quite thick. Not a pudding consistency at all. The flavor was also lacking. Not chocolaty or sweet enough.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
I thought these were good, but not great. I made the dough in my bread machine on the dough cycle, which made this recipe really easy. My main problem, though, is that they were just too sweet. I would use half as much sugar next time, and maybe bread flour for a chewier pretzel.

Garlic Lover's Pizza Crust for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
This pizza dough was great! The only thing I might do differently is add some herbs next time (oregano? basil?) just for some extra flavor. The texture was great, though. I recommend brushing the crust with a little olive oil and baking it with no toppings for 5-10 min, then topping it and baking until the cheese bubbles. I find that this ensures that the middle of the pizza is evenly cooked and the dough isn't soggy anywhere.

Green Chile Frittata

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
Hmm. I made this because I was trying to use up some cottage cheese in my fridge. It definitely had a different texture from the frittatas I am used to making- not bad, just different. I'm giving it three stars because I think it's a little bland as is. Next time I would add more veggies and definitely more chiles- I didn't feel like I could really taste them.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
These are SO good! Slightly crisp on the outside, delicious and fudgey on the inside. Really like a brownie in cookie form...almost. I didn't have any problem with the dough being sticky or thin. I stuck it in the freezer for about an hour and a half and it was just fine to scoop. I used a medium sized cookie scoop and got 19 cookies from a half-batch. Also added some mini chocolate chips. Yum!

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
I only made a half batch of these and still got about 24 cookies. I'm glad I made a half batch, though, because I didn't think they were that great...I liked the texture a lot, but the flavor didn't do a lot for me. Too vanilla-y, for one. Think I'll stick to my usual chocolate chip cookie recipe!

Thin Mint Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
These were great-much better than the Girl Scout cookies! I ommitted 1/4 cup of flour and they were the perfect consistency. I didn't refridgerate them for as long as the recipe says; just an hour, and they were fine. I dipped the tops of the cookies in melted semi-sweet chocolate chips (about half the bag), and added about 1/3 tsp of mint extract to the melted chocolate, which I think really helped with the minty taste of the cookies. Also did not add the butter to the melted chocolate...didn't think it was really necessary.

Chewiest Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
DELICIOUS!!! We brought the cocoa powder down to 1/2 cup, and the sugar down to a cup. Also added a cup of dark chocolate chips (coated in flour first to keep them from sinking to the bottom of the pan), and then sprinkled dark chocolate chips over the top (about 1/2 cup) while the brownies were still warm, then spread them with a spatula once they had melted some. We also only cooked them for 25 minutes and they were perfect (probably because they are so thin in the bigger pan). - CHARLIE AND LEO!!!

Lemon Sugar Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
Delicious! Substituted the lemon extract with a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice. Just the right amount of lemony flavor, and great chewy texture!

Cookie Sticks

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
My family liked these...I prefer a chewier cookie, and these were pretty crunchy. Had to bake for more like about 10-12 minutes- waaaay underdone at 6-7.

Mother's Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
Good with a few changes- added cloves and nutmeg in addition to the allspice and cinnamon. Also added about a cup of shredded apple. Brushed the tops of the muffins (once baked) with a little butter, then sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on top.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
These were pretty good, but not great. I added just a splash more milk, a teaspoon of vanilla, and coated the chocolate chips in a little flour before adding them to the batter to prevent them sinking to the bottom.

Applesauce Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
Everyone in my family loved these...maybe too much, as we could not stop eating them! My dad referred to them as "those square cupcakes." They really were delicious. I didn't have any pumpkin pie spice, so I substituted 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp allspice, and 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. Also baked them in a smaller pan, so they were a little thicker- had to up the baking time.

Glazed Apple Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
Great recipe! I forgot to add the milk the first time that I made these, but they turned out great, so now I leave it out on purpose. I have also made these substituting half of the butter with applesauce, and you could barely tell the difference...but they were a little healthier that way!
