Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
wow! i also made a batch with roasted-blanched-slivered almonds on top and no chocolate and it turned out great. just press the nuts a little into the toffee before it hardens. i'm bringing it to all my christmas/hanukkah parties this year. growing up, we used to make "matzoh-roca" (almond roca using passover matzoh instead of saltines) but this is perfect; the salt adds a perfect ballance to the sweet toffee but unlike pretzels, they are are delicate and flakey.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
"very very very very good" said my boyfriend after thoughtfully chewing his third cookie. after the fourth, he said "this is a cookie experience". i agree, not too cakey, not too crunchy. and they get that beautiful wrinkly look as they dry.

Chewiest Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
sooo rich! the first time i made them, my boyfriend ate half of them in one evening and spent the night moaning "chocolate..." with a tummy-ache. that did not prevent him from finnishing them off the next day, however. the next time i made them, i used half the chocolate and half the butter, almost doubled the flour and added half a cup of applesauce. oh-my-gosh, they are the fudgiest brownies and very still chocolatey.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
i have made this cornbread every time we have soup. both my boyfriend and my mom always request me to make it for them. one tip - i've found it's better to grease the pan with shortening (the natural, non-hydrogenated kind). this makes it easier to get out of the pan and doesn't burn the bottom like butter.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
i made these using only 3tbs. of butter and the rest applesauce and they were fantastic! i made them for my boyfriend's mother who was comming to town and she and he both enjoyed them, they are a lot like chips ahoy chewy, but better because they are home-made!

Rum or Bourbon Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
how easy and soooo good at bringing holiday spirit! i used pyrat reserve rum and rolled them in coconut flakes, chopped roasted almonds, cocoa powder, or powdered sugar. a little trick i found to help bigger things like nuts and coconut stick to the outside: roll them in a little water and then roll them in the desired coating.

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
no one can resist home made toffee like this! sometimes i add corn syrup which makes the toffee more glossy and clear (it tastes the same, the two forms of sugar keep eachother from crysatlizing).

Pineapple Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
i had a can of crushed pineapple, so i figured 'what the hey'. i added some lime juice and zest i had leftover from something else. wow! so rich and most and decadent, my boyfriend ate most of them that day, my friend consumed the rest the next evening. when my boyfriend's mother was comming to town i asked what i could make her, he said 'make that pineapple cake again!'.

Whipped Cream Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
i made this one morning and my boyfriend ate them all for breakfast. he loves fluffy southern drop biscuits, so i didn't roll them out, i just dropped them onto the pan. he asked me to make them for thanksgiving this year, they were sooo good. this time, however, i'll try it without whipping the cream.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
I made one layer (1/3 or 4 servings)and used 2 eggs instead of "1 1/3", which produced a very moist result. i also used hazelnut-flavored coffee instead of plain water. when the cake was done, i sprinkled chocolate chips on top and let the residual heat melt them so i could spread them into a smooth top (note: if you do this, make sure to cut into peices before chilling, otherwise the chocolate will be very hard and not cut well).
