Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
These were delightful! Nice and puffy, and chewy in the middle. I live in Denver, and used 3 cups of flour to compensate for the altitude.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
So I started making this recipe, and realized that the grater was being difficult, so I just chopped the zucchini up into itty bitty pieces with a knife instead. I ended up having closer to 3 cups then 2, but I figured it would make the recipe more zucchini-tastic, so I added it all anyhow. I was feeling saucy, so rather then using 2 cups of white sugar, I did 1 cup white and 1 cup brown. I didn't have any unsweetened chocolate, so I kinda took the idea from the Chocolate Zucchini Bread II recipe and used 1/4 cup cocoa powder instead. Now here's the bad part: when I got to the point where I needed to add in the flour, I realized that I only had 1 cup's worth left. I just didn't feel like going to the grocery store (it was late) or harassing someone else to go to the grocery store (I'm entirely too nice for my own good), so I cracked open a package of brownie mix and used a cup of that instead, figuring that brownie mix is probably mostly flour anyhow....right? So I baked it for 60 min and the result was rather like an English pudding crossed with, well, brownie. Crusty on top, and really moist in the middle, with random globs of chocolate and zucchini. My mutant concoction in no way resembled what this recipe was supposed to look like in the end, but it went fabulous with vanilla ice cream!

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
These cookies were the epitome of deliciousness, especially considering how incredibly easy they were to make! I will definitely be making these again.

Maple Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
This was fantastically tasty, I will definitely make it again! I followed suit with several of the other reviewers and only used 1/4 cup butter instead of 1/2. I was making this for a chocolate lover, so I added about 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips to the flour/sugar/butter mixture. It was excellent hot with some vanilla ice cream on top.

Curried Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
This was absolutely delightful. A few modifications I made: Added some chopped turkey as well as green pepper, so it made this a bit more of an entree dish. I also added a bit of cumin. Turned out I didn't have enough rice as well, so I did half rice and half barley, meaning I cooked this for slightly longer then the recipe called for. I just finished off the last of it tonight, and wish I'd made more!

Peanut Butter Brownies I

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
Great recipe! These are definitely on the line between brownie and cake, they're moist and not too rich. I also added chocolate chips, and they worked very well.
