Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2012
This recipe is an incredible base. It has great flavor, but I found that the batter was far too wet and the muffins ended up being a little mushy. So, I made a few changes to bring this recipe from a 4 as written to a 5. I've made these three time. The first two were to see if the recipe really did need modifications. It did, so this is what I did to the third try: I followed the recipe exactly, but added a cup of old fashioned oats and increased the baking powder to 2 1/4 tsp. I also used plain yogurt instead of oil to cut down on the fat, and that swap was just fine. Note: The recipe is good with oil... I just wanted to make them healthier. Amazing. I wish I'd packed more than one in my lunch bag today!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
These aren't my very favorite, but I'll give them five stars because everyone who tries them always says, "OhmyGod!! These are sooo good!" I made them.. sort of with the Reeses peanut butter hearts (not the giant chunky ones... the little ones that have to be unwrapped) for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day last year and he loved them. Instead of putting them in mini muffin tins, though, I proceeded like I was making peanut butter blossoms. Make sure you freeze the candy until just before you press them into the cookie. I also always pop these right into the fridge so that the candy doesn't spread too much during the meltimg process (when using flatter candies such as the hearts)

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Great base recipe... I love this. It's so versatile. I like to use 1/2 whole wheat, and the dough still comes out perfect.

Pumpkin Bread Puddin'

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
I'm not sure how to rate this because my boyfriend told both he and his mother that this was the best dessert he had ever had in his life. I on the other hand though it was kind of gross.... and I'm the chocolate lover... not him! It tasted like a big mushy chocolate chip cookie. The chocolate completely overpowered the pumpkin. I would definitely use more pumpkin, 1 tsp cinnamon, the same amount of cloves and nutmeg, and raisins instead of chocolate chips.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
As written, the pie does not have nearly enough flavor. I tasted it before adding the eggs, and it was so... blah. SO, I added two additional teaspoons of cinnamon. The flavor was great. However, the pie was very DRY and almost gritty as if I had used ricotta cheese. Maybe that's because I used extra cinnamon? I honestly can't see 2 tsp of cinnamon absorbing THAT much moisture, though. On the other hand, my boyfriend said it was the best pie he's ever had, but as a pumpkin pie lover and a seasoned baker, I will definitely not be making this again. I'll definitely be going back to the old sugar and evaporated milk recipe.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
Awesome recipe! I made this last night on a whim while at my boyfriend's house. I followed the recipe to a T, except for the fact that I didn't use baking powder or baking soda in the crumble simply due to the fact that he didn't have any. It definitely didn't make a difference in the taste or anything. He tasted the finished product and said, "Wow... you nailed the crispy part." He then said after he finished the serving that it was the best apple crisp he's ever had in his life. I will defintely be adding this to my recipe box. I also think that I'll refrain from using the baking powder and baking soda next time as well... it was good as is, and I don't want to "fix" a recipe that already hit a home run. Excellent, excellent recipe.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
I follow this recipe exactly as written, except for the fact that I omit the onions, out of personal taste. Most of the time I don't use a crust, either just so that I can save calories. This quiche has delicious flavor... soooo good. If using frozen broccoli, do NOT forget to thaw and drain it, otherwise it will be watery. An excellent recipe that gets a lot of use in the chilly months! :)

Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
This was not very good... it tastes like thin tomato sauce. I had to add an extra carrot and two potatoes just to cut the acidity, but it still didn't work. I pureed it so that the carrots and potatoes wouldn't be chunky. I refuse to waste food, so I am eating it anyway, but only with a large dallop of sour cream and deep hunger pangs that make me so desperate for food that I'd eat anything.

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
It tasted like a stick of butter dredged in flour and sprinkled with a pinch of powdered sugar.

Kay's Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
This recipe was wonderful! I followed other reviewers' suggestions and doubled the white sugar... I was also generous with the 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar. I shaped the dough into one inch balls and flatted slightly with two fingers, then sprinkled red and green sugar on either side. I then baked for 10 minutes... They were wonderful! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!! Also, if anyone is up in the air between Kay's shortbread and the other highly rated shortbread recipe on this website... Kay's is hands down the best.

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
What a great recipe! I had abolsolutely NO problems with rolling it out or anything. It was so smooth! I didn't have shortening, so I used 1 stick of butter, and I also used 3/4 cup white flour and 3/4 cup whole wheat flour. I also added 1/3 cup extra wheat to make it a little firmer. This was great with the broccoili quiche I made! My boyfriend (who never eats the crust of a pie) said that it was great!

Whole Wheat Pumpkin-Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I love these muffins... the only thing that i do differently is substitute mashed banana for the applesauce. Also, make sure you put them in a sealed container as soon as they come out of the oven so they retain their moisture. Sooo good!

Curried Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I love curry dishes and I love pumpkin soup, but this is definitely not my favorite recipe. It was too apple-y and there was too much curry and not enough additional ingredients to unify it. it was weird because you could taste the individual ingredients. This is not something I will be making again. If you're looking to punch up a pumpkin soup, follow a traditional recipe and add a carrot and some rosemary.

Ashley's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
OH MY GOODNESS!!! This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I have ever tried. I like my cookies puffy and cakey... which is exactly what these are. I didn't try the recipe without the baking soda, but after reading reviews, I added it to my first-shot recipe, which was a good decision. Great cookies... WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL!

Snickerdoodles II

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
I have my grandmother's snickerdoodle recipe, which calls for butter... but I didn't have butter, so I searched for a recipe that called for shortening instead. They were sooooo bland! My advice: Search for a snickerdoodle recipe with butter- your tastebuds will thank you!
