Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
My issue is that they didn't come out as sweet as I would've liked, so it was kind of "meh" for me. I followed the instructions to the letter, but believe it could be improved with the modifications suggested by other reviewers. I will have to try it with modifications next time. Otherwise, this was just OK to me. (My housemates seemed to like it though).

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 31, 2013
Baked these over the weekend at the boyfriend's house. Ended up with 12 perfect muffins. They were moist and delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and made no modifications. The boyfriend, his roommate, the roommate's girlfriend, and I all loved it. They were so yum even days later, when we put them in baggies to grab on the go. PERFECT. Will make many times over, but one day I might omit the cinnamon sugar topping. It's a fantastic addition, but I could do with less fat/sugar. Biggest compliments came from the boyfriend and the roomie's girlfriend who both stated (without knowing the other said so) that they were better than the muffins at Starbucks.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
This was super easy to do. I followed the recipe exactly and liked that they weren't over sweet. The boyfriend really enjoyed these pancakes and we both agreed they were way better than the Bisquick ready mix! I would totally do this again and try it with variations with chocolate chips or blueberries!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
Second Batch review: made these at the boyfriend's house a few weeks after batch #1, and they came out SO MUCH BETTER. (I think my oven must burn a little hotter than it says it does, that might have affected the outcome of the moistness.) Revised review to 5-stars! First Batch: This was a fantastic and easy recipe to follow. I ran out of food coloring, so I only used 1/4 of the recommendation, but even so it turned out great! I would only make half the icing because I ended up throwing out more than half of it! I had way too much icing left over! The cupcake itself I thought was slightly more on the dense/not-quite-as-moist as I'd like, but when I ate them at room temperature, it seemed to fare a little better. Regardless, everyone else that ate them really enjoyed them. I would make this again.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
I think maybe I couldn't pick an eggplant, or I didn't know how to 'draw out the bittnerness' right, or something, but... for some reason I wasn't too impressed with the eggplant part of this dish. The boyfriend liked it a lot, but I think I mostly liked the cheese. I'll try it one more time and revise my rating if necessary.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
I made a bunch of these for Valentine's day and put them in little bags inside of tins and passed them out as Valentine's gifts. I did roll them in colored sugar before baking, but everyone loved them! I followed the recipe exactly.

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
I've made this at least a half dozen times since I first started trying it out. I don't make any changes to the recipe other than trying to use 'light' products whenever possible. The first time I made this, I had my Mexican friend over and she said they tasted just as good as her mom's! She couldn't believe it was made with cottage cheese! That first casserole dish full of enchiladas got completely devoured by 3-4 women in one night! There were no leftovers. I was amazed! It also was my go-to recipe the for one of the first times I cooked for my boyfriend, and he liked it so much he even requested I make it for one of our special occasion dinners. I've made it for a potluck, and it got all kinds of compliments. Seriously, this recipe is fantastic and easy!
