Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
My friend and I have been trying to duplicate the ginger cookies from Peet's Coffee. This is about as close as I can find! They're AMAZING!

Frosted Banana Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I really like these! I made a few changes, though. I remembered reading somewhere that you can cut almost half of the sugar out of any recipe without affecting the end product. So I cut the sugar down to 1 cup. I also used fat-free plain yogurt instead of the sour cream. I don't have a 10x15 pan so I used a 9x13 and cooked it for 30 min. I got a nice, moist cake-like bar. I also frosted it with a Chocolate Peanut Butter frosting made of 2C powdered sugar, 2T cocoa, 4T milk, 2T peanut butter, and 1/2t vanilla. I really enjoyed these for a way to use up ripe bananas besides the standard banana bread.

Good stuff! I used a sliced pork loin and the leftovers were tender and tasty. Will make again!

Family Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2006
Leftovers were great for lunch. I used leftover rice from Chinese food the night before and it worked beautifully!

Ribboned Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2006
I didn't have any of the problems that are mentioned below but I also have a new, dark and well-coated bundt pan. The cream cheese mixture settled beatifully on the bottom and the presentation was amazing! No one could believe this started with a cake mix. A real saver when you don't have much time but still want to dazzle your guests. I made this for a birthday party and work and will definitely make it again.

Curried Shrimp with Sugar Snap Peas

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2006
I'm not a huge seafood lover so I used pork, cooked it a little longer before adding the peas, and the flavors worked well together. I couldn't find light coconut milk so I used regular and I think it was a little heavy so I would recommend sticking with that part of the recipe. It was delicious but needed a little more spice or salt or something...but I'm certain you could figure it out for your own taste. My first try with curry and I wasn't disappointed!

Harvest Rice Dish

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
My guess is that this is a VERY versatile recipe that can easily be changed to suit your tastes. Here's what I used and it was FANTASTIC! 2c brown Jasmine rice, 2c water, 2c vegetable broth, 4T butter, 1c diced onion, 2T brown sugar, 1 8oz can mushrooms, 2/3 of a 6-oz bag of Craisins, 1c roasted sliced almonds. I took it to a faculty potluck and there was nothing left. The flavor is a sweet onion with the cranberries and mushrooms thrown in. It's wonderful and I will definitely make this again.

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
It doesn't get any better than this. This is the second year I've brined my turkey using this recipe. Always rave reviews on how moist and flavorful it is. This year, I used apple juice instead of broth and did notice that it browned faster than I was expecting at the beginning (my wing tips got a little burned!). But I covered it up quickly and had a nice, golden turkey. A friend of mine who also used the same recipe then deep-fried her turkey and she said the whole thing turned black! It tasted great, though, but the sugars in the apple juice couldn't take the high temps of the oil. I think next year I'll go back to broth.

Sweet Potato and Apple Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
My sister-in-law said this is like having a bit of apple pie without the crust. Really easy to put together the night before Thanksgiving and throw in the oven to warm the next day. I liked the apples with the yams - a variation on the same old marshmallows. I think this one will be a tradition now.

Creole Cornbread Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
My in-laws loved this so much that they have deemed it the "new Thanksgiving tradition"! Yes, LOTS of chopping to do but well worth it. I saved some time by substituting dried herbs for fresh (1 T fresh = 1 t dried). Cooking the spices in the butter first really allows the flavor to get into every bite of the cornbread. It was a little tricky to fish out the bay leaves after the cornbread went in. Next time, I'll pull them out before adding the cornbread. I made this the night before Thanksgiving, put it in a 9x13 pan, and baked in the oven for an hour or so. It was a great twist on a classic, added a new taste to the meal, and turned out fabulously!

Boston Brown Bread III

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
This was so easy to make and a nice change from typical quick breads. The bread tastes best warm with some butter on it. The next time I make it, though, I'll probably do 2 cups of white flour and 1 cup of wheat flour. The wheat flavor was a bit strong (salty/bitter) for me. My husband said he could eat this for dessert.

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2004
I used frozen green beans. Perfect for Thanksgiving - needed a green veggie to go with all the potatoes and stuffing! These were really great.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2004
How do I give this 5 stars each for the six people in my office who LOVED this? :o) My boss said "pump this into my veins". SO easy to pull together - I used eight apples that were too soft to eat. I used a 9x13 and the dough didn't quite cover the apples but no one cared. I'm thinking about having someone over just for an excuse to make this again.

Very Berry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2004
Delicious! Nice and light - a good compliment to summer fruits. I used orange juice instead of brandy and fresh peaches instead of the berries. Mine took about 20 min longer to cook. I only had a 9 inch springform pan, but mine was full! I don't know how it would have fit into an 8 inch pan. Brought the cheesecake into work and everyone raved about it. I also loved how easy this was to put together.

Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: May 19, 2004
If you are looking for the sponge cake, angel food cake, or pound cake knock-offs to strawberry shortcake, this recipe is NOT for you! If, however, you are looking for a delicious version of a traditional shortcake, don't pass this up! Unbelievably easy to put together (I did use only 3 tsp of baking powder as suggested) and received rave reviews from all my coworkers. My boss even said it was just like the shortbread his mother used to make for him as a kid.

Peanut Butter Cookies IX

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2003
I had to package these up and drive them to my husband's work so I wouldn't eat them all. I made them exactly as the recipe indicated and wouldn't change a thing! These are AWESOME! The oatmeal adds texture, the peanut butter is a wonderful twist and the chocolate is always a plus! I love these and will doubtless make them time and time again. Thanks for a no-fail pleaser!

Muenster Chicken and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2003
It doesn't get any better than this! This dish presents beautifully on a bed of herbed rice. Clean-up is a breeze since it's a one dish meal. It's perfect for guests since you can use the cooking time to mingle or prepare other dinner items. The flavors are savory and delicious. I can't wait to do this again!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2003
These are great! Fluffy and golden with a wonderful buttery flavor. Next time, I might cut back on the baking powder just a tad as I got a twinge of a bitter aftertaste. Otherwise, perfect! I'm looking for an excuse to have people over for brunch so I can show these off!

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2003
Mmm-mmm is right! My husband and I were having a chocolate craving this afternoon - these did the trick! I added 1/4 c water to the mix because I like mine a tad bit "cakey". They are moist and delicious, super-chocolatey, and easy to whip up. I sprinkled mine with some chocolate chips before baking to give it an extra chocolate punch. Will definitely make these again.

Well, duh. Of course they're good. A thousand people can't be wrong! I used chocolate mint pudding mix for a coworker's birthday party. DEEE-lish!
