Rich Chocolate Tart

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
I made this because I had some extra puff pastry and a lot of extra cream - I made it as written and it is delicious and so simple to make. The texture of the chocolate filling is so silky and delicious. I really recommend using the puff pastry as the recipe indicates - it is so flaky.

Classic Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
I followed this recipe exactly and it turned out so well - the caramel corn is very delicious and easy to make! I made it using butter instead of margarine, which I highly recommend if at all possible. I can tell I will be making this a lot. Next time I'll use dark brown sugar so as to get a darker, slightly more molasses-y flavor.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
I made these almost exactly as written - they are very fluffy and tender and delicious. The only changes I made were to add 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg because I love nutmeg, and to use melted butter instead of oil, because I love butter. I will be making these again and again.

Chewy Cocoa Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
I always make fudgy brownies, but lately I've wanted to try a chewy brownie recipe (but not cakey!). I made this recipe pretty much as directed (I added a little instant coffee to the 2T of water, and I added chocolate chips), and I can say that for chewy brownies, they are pretty good. Compared to the fugdy brownies I make, these of course are not as dense, but they aren't cakey either, and they have a good texture and chocolate flavor. I will make these again when I'm in the mood for a less 'serious'/dense brownie. I can see these being a good base for sundaes, with ice cream and fudge sauce.

Spicy Vegan Potato Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
This is very delicious, and features three really comforting foods (soft chickpeas, potatoes, and coconut milk). It will be a great thing to make when the weather gets colder. Maybe I put in more potatoes and chickpeas than called for, but this yielded A LOT. Like, at least ten servings' worth, large servings at that. Luckily I have a freezer. Make this and you won't be disappointed (if you like Indian food that is).

Soft Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
I was looking for a recipe for gingersnaps that weren't so snappy; I like them chewy, with a little give, but not cakey in the least. This recipe is perfect for that! I will make these a lot; the texture is exactly what I wanted, the flavor is excellent, and they look so pretty and perfect out of the oven. They would be great vehicles for ice cream sandwiches; I think good old vanilla bean ice cream would be good, but my girlfriend says coffee would be better.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
I have never made brownies like these before, so I was skeptical while I was making the . . . well, it wasn't the consistency of normal batter. It was crumbly, and I had to work the dry ingredients into the wet with the back of a wooden spoon. It took some doing, but I knew I had to just follow the recipe, so I did exactly as it said (I didn't add any eggs). After putting the zucchini in, I pressed the batter into the pan with my hands, and my hands quickly became moist - the zucchini was doing its job! Mine took 30 minutes to bake, and they taste delicious! I went without the frosting; the brownies don't need it. I did substitute chocolate chips for the walnuts. I'd make these again. I love recipes that include lots of zucchini but don't taste like they do.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
A tip: grease your loaf pans beyond what you think is necessary; I greased mine well and the bread still stuck to the bottom. Overall this recipe isn't bad. Using the correct size pans, and knowing my oven temperature is correct, each loaf turned out to be about one inch tall on the sides and about two inches tall in the middle, which means that they are rather flat. I could have put all of the batter into one loaf pan, which I think I'll do next time. The bread is too sweet, and I have a massive sweet tooth, but the texture is fantastic. It is basically a chocolate cake, with an invisible zucchini surprise, and that's fine by me! All of my chocolate chips sank, despite adding a flour coat. If I were to make this again, I'd drastically reduce the sugar (I'd start out with one cup and see where that got me), and either use smaller loaf pans or one large one. Another thing: my loaves were finished at 50 minutes, so check yours before the time is up to make sure they don't burn.

Caramel Apple Bars II

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
These are amazing bars! I made a few of the recommended changes, plus some others. I was using very sweet apples, so I reduced the brown sugar to 1 cup, and that turned out to be perfect, so I think no matter what kind of apples I use, I'll always use less sugar (between the caramel and the apples and the sugar, one cup is enough for me). I also added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the cookie mixture, and it tasted very, very good! I want to make cookies out of it, I liked it so much. I used 2/3 of the cookie mixture for the crust, and baked it 3 minutes longer than written. I used a lot more apple slices than written in order to make a single layer on top of the crust. I made my own caramel sauce from here. I doubled it, and had 1/2 cup leftover. These were phenomenal and almost obscenely buttery (but the oats and the apple make up for it, right?). Delicious.

Championship Chocolate Chip Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
I made these yesterday, with the only deviation being that I omitted the nuts and added 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips. I didn't like these very much. For me, they were just pure sugar in various forms, and I didn't like the way that tasted. I didn't like the texture of the sweetened condensed milk layer, nor did I like the taste. The shortbread-y layer was all right, but as a whole, I wouldn't make these again.

Vegetarian Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
As written, I think this recipe is too salty and too thick. 4 Tablespoons of soy sauce on top of 1/2 teaspoon of salt seems like way too much salt to me. I used 3 tablespoons of soy sauce and didn't add any salt at the end, and I used 3 cups of broth. When I made it this way, the recipe turned out really well. I will definitely make it like this again.

Chicken Biscuit Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
This recipe is great! I futzed with it a bit: used green onions, mock (vegetarian) chicken, green beans, leeks, and leftover potato hashbrowns - which was an excellent combination. I also added three cloves of garlic to the green onions, because I love garlic. I ended up doubling the recipe and it turned out beautifully, although I only multiplied the Bisquick ratio by 1.5, which produced just the right amount of biscuit topping. I ended up baking the thing for about 18 minutes at 450. It made a lot of food, but it's so tasty that I won't mind the leftovers! I will make this again.

Scrumptious Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
I had never made shortcake before, and these turned out pretty good. I used 3 tsp of baking powder as recommended, and a small pinch of cream of tarter instead of the listed amount, and they turned out fine. About half of them were too thin to be able to cut in half; next time I'll try to make them thicker. This recipe is so rich! While baking, my whole house smelled delicious.

Banana Chip Muffins I

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2005
After making a few recommended changes to the recipe, my muffins turned out fabulously and were delicious. I doubled the milk to half a cup, and added about a teaspoon of vanilla and a few spices, like cinnamon. I will definitely be making this recipe again, but with the changes I used.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2005
These are very light and fluffy; they are very good pancakes. I think I would like them better if they had a touch more salt in them, so I'll try that next time. I also used lowfat buttermilk, and they tasted great.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2005
This was a very good recipe. I made a few modifications: I used three eggs as suggested by others who've made this, I added pinches of nutmeg and cloves, and I let the bread soak in the egg mixture for about twenty minutes before baking it. It came out very sweet, so next time I'll cut back to 2/3 cup or so of sugar instead of the 3/4 cup. Overall it had a very good texture and flavor. It's not a very eggy recipe as I made it, which is what I prefer.

Big Guy Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2005
This was a good tasting dessert. I used butter instead of margarine for the crust, and forgot the vanilla extract, and it still tasted excellent. I think I overcooked the glaze; it turned out really gloppy on the strawberries. I think next time I make this I'll toss the strawberries in the glaze first before putting the strawberries in the pie shell, which will make for an even coating of glaze. And indeed, as others have said the crust is what makes this dessert special.

Chocolate Coconut Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
These bars are pretty good, and very easy due to the few ingredients. They're chewy.
