Jacky's Fruit and Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Great recipe that allow me to use up frozen blueberries and any type of yogurt on hand but something went wrong when I took them out of the oven to taste whether they were done. The muffins toppled like 'souffle' which has never happened before with other muffins so I will definitely have to try this again. The batch was moist and smelled wonderful.. just funny looking crater faces for muffin top.

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I've lost count how many cinnamon bun recipes I've tested (5?) but this is only 2nd one that tempted me to perform taste test. I gave these as a Halloween treat and was still putting on the frosting when three were gobbled up before they had chance to cool. I added a whole box of vanilla pudding mix (107 g versus 40 g) by mistake and it was not too sweet. However I did cut back on the cream cheese frosting and added currants.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
My mom and I made these as part of our Saturday baking ritual. Ours don't look quite like the recipe photo but it will make for a nice baked gift for someone. The baking time will depend on the size of your 'drop' or spoon size used. To be safe watch after 8 min and every 1-2 minutes if your oven tends to be hotter than average. It definitely is chewy in the middle and crisp on the edges.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
On a hot summer day, it's great to be able to make a treat without turning on the oven. It's REALLY easy and covers the basic food groups for those with sweet tooth: sugar, chocolate, peanut butter with oatmeal to remove the guilt. Next time I'll take the advice of others to reduce the amt of sugar. Thanks for the recipe!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
Jackpot! Years ago at a summer intern job, a lady brought in muffins and since then this is how I've always liked my muffin with a crumb topping. Ever wonder why people only eat the top part of muffin, this will explain it. I made these for my guy and he said it was better than his. This recipe is perfect base and excellent if you have over riped bananas.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
Great treat for a small group gathering and I was able to make substitution with ingredients I had. Followed another reviewer's (Kim) advice and added 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg and 1/4 tsp ground ginger to flour mixture. For the batter, I added 1 tsp vanilla, substituted 1c brown sugar for white and 7/8 c vegetable oil for the butter. Poured 1/2 butter into greased 9X13 greased pan and spread thin layer of cream cheese filling(instead of the filling from original recipe) then remaining batter. For topping: mixed 1/3 c brown sugar, 2 tbsp flour, 2 tsp cinnamon and cut in 1 tbsp butter until mixture resemble coarse cornmeal. Added 1/3 c chopped walnuts (reduced amount of nuts for my taste) and some shredded sweetened coconut to topping mixture and sprinkle over coffee cake. Baked for 35-40 minutes and cooled before slicing. Next time I will try to make in Bundt pan and add some dried fruit or berries. This recipe allows lots of variation and stays moist!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
Big hit and relatively easy! If I were to make this again, I would try adding yeast to the warm milk and margarine mixture. Compared to "Clone of Cinnabon " besides being faster, I liked 'tear-away' texture of the roll whereas my judge & jury preferred the bread/bun taste of clone. Even those without sweet tooth will enjoy these.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
Didn't get to try any but was told they were delicious. Followed Andy Tami's advice for non-bread machine method. Only used about 1/3 of cream cheese mix as we're trying to cut down on sugar. Will definitely make it again; it's easy crowd pleaser!

Bulgogi (Korean Barbecued Beef)

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
The recipe is great as I didn't have time to marinade meat overnight like many of recipes I read. Love Korean BBQ but never made at home. Quick run to H-Mart (Korean specialty store) to pick up some broccoli, bean sprouts, mushrooms and red peppers. Bought some spicy kimchi and radish as side dishes. We didn't grill but turned this into a stir-fry. It made for delicious simple dinner. I always fret when I offer to cook but not anymore. Thanks to all the great cooks on Allrecipes!
