Blueberry Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2013
Awesome recipe - so moist & delicious! The only changes I made included using 1 cup flour & 1/2 cup oats to equal the 1 1/2 cups, but I wanted it to be more bread-like. Also, the oats were unsweetened maple flavored, and the maple went amazingly with the pumpkin & warm spices. This recipe also taught me that I love the combo of pumpkin & blueberries! The batter made 3 perfect mini 3 x 5 loaves, and I cooked them at 375 for 45 minutes. Thank you CKLEWIS for this awesome new pumpkin bread recipe!!!

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2013
I didn't have white chips or brandy, so I used 1 tsp of orange extract to make cranberry-orange cookies. I also added 1/4 tsp of salt. They are delicious but I will definitely reduce the sugars to 3/4 cup next time as they are too sweet for me.

Moist, Tender Spice Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
This spice cake is delicious & moist! Yeah the method is unconventional so I ignored it & used the traditional cake method. But that's no reason to down rate the recipe, especially if you know ahead of time that you're just going to make it your way & not the way that's stated. I can't speak for others, but when I search for a recipe it is because I wish to find a combination of ingredients & the amount of those ingredients so I can make something that tastes good. I made this as listed for a 2 layer birthday cake for someone who requested a spice cake, as it is her favorite. She loved it so I was happy. Plus, I loved it too when I had a piece. The only thing I would do different next time is use less ginger but that's b/c I'm not crazy about ginger. And next time is tomorrow when I make this for a birthday cake for my sister.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
These are amazing & delicious like everyone says. I had friends & family agree & ask/beg/demand for more to be made! On my 2nd time, I decided to make the glaze maple by adding maple extract rather than vanilla to the glaze ingredients. This was a wise & delicious choice--it tasted just like maple candy (New England-er here)! Then I dusted the glaze, whilst sticky, with cinnamon which, for me, helped balance the sweetness wonderfully as I do find most confectioner sugar glazes too sweet for my teeth. But these cookies are a definite winner & permanent member of my recipe box!

White Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
My 1st time making a white sauce (bechamel) and this recipe made it so easy - thanks so much! And thanks to the reviewer who said to double it if making a whole box of penne. That is exactly what I did and it is indeed the perfect amount! :D Oh...I did add seasonings, namely salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dried parsley. And I was aiming for a mac & cheese style dish so I whisked in grated parmesan, romano, and fontinella cheeses.

Skillet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
Extremely easy to make and fast too! I make it as is for chili, but add sugar and blueberries when I want it sweet. It's fluffier than conventional cornbread, not as dense. I also love how you can make a single portion of cornbread when you want it, and have it fresh in 10 minutes.

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
OK, these are amazing. They really are. As I began eating them while I was still making them, I was thinking, "The creator of these is a genius!" The only changes I made were to use 1 tsp each of onion and garlic powder instead of salt because most things are too salty for me. I still used the 1 tsp of salt & paprika. But they needed more salt so the recipe as written is probably perfect! I sprinkled more salt on while they were fresh out of the skillet & greasy. I used cast iron & peanut oil if it matters. And ate with ketchup.

Chunky Monkey Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
These were great pancakes! I doubled the recipe but only used 2 eggs total as that's what I had and they were awesome so if you like less egg these are still for you. I added 1 tsp cinnamon as I love it. I only had multi-grain pastry flour so I added a little more baking powder to ensure fluffiness. I used 3 TBS sugar rather than 2 for the double batch as I thought it should be a tiny bit sweeter. I mashed up one banana and left the other chopped since I like to have pieces in them. I only used 2/3 cup chocolate chips and there were almost too many for me. I don't eat nuts so they weren't included but I can say that they would be too chunky if you also left the banana diced. If you want both chips and nuts I would mash or puree the banana so it's part of the batter. I melted the butter for the batter in a non-stick frying pan and let that be the greasing of the pan which worked great. I made about 17 and served with butter and powdered sugar. They were also good with maple syrup or sour cream. I refrigerated the leftovers and like to eat them cold as a snack. They tasted great and the texture was perfect - very fluffy, not mushy inside, but plenty moist!
