Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
This was my first time making biscotti and it came out wonderful. Subbed Tia Maria (coffee liqueur) for the extracts, mini chocolate-chips for the cranberries, and hazelnuts for the pistachios. I did have to toy around with the cooking times though. Got 26 cookies. Will dunk tip in chocolate before offering in my goodies box.

These were delicious. I added 1 heaping teaspoon as suggested in other reviews, but I didn't find it was enough when tasting the uncooked batter, so I added more. I sorta dropped the bottle in!!! I got some out, but all in all, I probably had the approximate amout of 1 tablespoon and they were perfect. I do NOT think they need any extra sugar (as suggested), they are plenty sweet as is. I rolled out the dough and used a cookie cutter. They came out nice after 15 mins of baking, but they were probably thinner than in the original recipe (yield was of 24 and I got 37). I didn't add any almonds. I also don't think it is necessary to grease the cookie tray. They have tons of butter already. I lined mine with parchement paper and when I took it out of the oven, the paper was dreanched with oil. I will definately make these again.

Spelt Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Very nice! After reading other reviews, I too halved the salt, but, to add a little flavour, I used celery salt instead of the regular. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder. They came out perfect.

Very nice and incredibly easy recipe! Only thing I changed was double the peppermint extract as recommended by another member. Thanks for sharing :)

Easy Peach Crisp I

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
Three words: De-li-cious! I made this using canned pears and a chocolate devil food's cake mix because that's what I had. Sprinkled the pears with a cinnamon-sugar mix & used 1/4 cup (packed) of brown sugar, which I mixed with the cake prep, then I cut in the butter as suggested in any reviews. Baked it at 350F for 50 minutes, poking holes a few times during baking. Only change I would make next time is not put any brown sugar at all, I did find it a tad too sweet. Although, a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top would do the job.

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
Mmm, mmm, good! This was my first time making stove-top popcorn... Did as the other reviews suggested: 3 kernel test & 3 seconds/off. My popcorn turned out perfect, I have yet to burn a batch! My favourite way to prepare it is by mixing spices (1/4 tsp 4-spice + 1/4 tsp cinnamon) into the sugar before putting it in. I add it at the same time as the kernels. I actually love it best cooled, bring a bag with me to nibble on throughout the day.

Highland Toffee

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
Okay, these are delicious! I did make a few changes according to what I had on hand (take note that I am making these in the middle of the night to satisfy a sugar craving). I didn't have quick-cooking oats, I only had the old-fashioned kind and I was afraid these would not soften enough during baking. Instead, I used individual instant oatmeal servings, I had golden honey flavour. 4 pouches = 2 cups. Since I didn't have corn syrup, I replaced it with molasses. The final taste is very similar to my mother's puffed wheat recipe. I baked it in a 9" pie pan because I didn't have a square one and after the recommended 12 minutes, I pulled it out of the oven and cooled. The preparation had candied around the edges but the center remained too soft. I cut it into squares, prying the edges from the pan and baked another 5 minutes. This did NOT work. The batter just spread out some more, although it did candy. I spooned it out of the pan right after removing it from the oven because I was afraid that after it had cooled, it would be un-removable, which ultimately resembled a big glob of toffee. It tasted good just the same. Next time, I will try crumbling up the batter onto a lined cookie sheet and bake this way so it is evenly candied. Like that, I will have oat clusters instead of squares. I assume these will be great finger food or added to yogurt. I also lower sugar for my next batch AND use plain oats because these results were much too sweet. I didn't bother adding the c

Easy and Fun Peanut Butter Balls

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
Great treat as is but to make them into super energy healthy balls, you can add things like sesame seeds, poppy seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, wheat germ, raisins, unsweetened coconut etc. directly to the mix (just add more peanut butter if it is too dry). I prefer roasting my coconut first (place coconut in oven on cookie sheet on broil until golden, give it a stir and broil a tad longer, but watch it closely), it just makes it that much better! You can also replace powdered milk with protein powder. I love rolling them in icing sugar.
