Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
VERY easy to make! My 4 year old daughter and I made them and she was able to help roll the dough into balls and put them on the cookie sheet. We found though that smashing them almost flat worked out better as far as baking for 10 minutes. We followed the directions and let it sit on the cookie sheet for another 2 minutes before putting them on the cooling rack. They are crispy, yet have a bit of chewiness in the middle. Although there is NO almond extract in these cookies, they remind me of the consistency of those chinese almond cookies. I bet if you subbed or added almond extract, it'd be exactly like the almond cookies you get from chinese restaurants. I'd definitely make these again. Gonna try rolling this dough and making cut-out cookies next!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I had a bunch of golden delicious apples that I had to use up in the fridge before they went bad. I doubled up the recipe and used 8 apples. I didn't adjust the recipe at all and it was awesome! Instead of a fork or potato masher, I used my handy electric stick blender....worked so quickly! :) I didn't even wait for it to cool down. I gave some to my 4 year old daughter and she is wanting seconds. Thanks, Sarah! :)

Jam Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2005
Easy, quick and good recipe for jam thumbprint cookies. I tried what people mentioned, no egg wash, no nuts, put jelly in for the full baking time...they turned out good, cept I think I may need to bake them longer than 16 minutes, also, the jam tended to ooze off the cookies and onto the baking sheet. I think I'll make smaller thumbprints and put less jam in next time. I used strawberry jam and blackberry jam. The blackberry jam didn't ooze like the strawberry jam did. But, this recipe is definitely a do-over!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: May 22, 2005
Awesome recipe! Very chewy and big! :) I had to bake them for 19 minutes in my oven, they were kinda tall and not flat, so I flattened one batch a bit and they came out great! :) I made these again on 6/8/2005 and this time I used dark brown sugar(apparently it'll make it even more chewy cause of the molasses), flattened all the cookies a bit with a offset spatula, took out 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, and made them smaller(1 tablespoon instead of 1/4 cup) and they look practically professional from a bakery. I baked it at 350 degrees for 16 minutes and it turned out yummy and chewy!

Pina Colada Punch

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2005
Totally awesome punch! :) I made it with a 16oz can of cream of coconut instead of putting chunky pineapple in it, and halved the recipe cause it was for a small party. It turned out great! :) I left out the rum and made it virgin so if people wanted to add some rum in, they could. :) I'll definitely make this again during the summer. Very refreshing and yummy! :9

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2005
Followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great! Baked them for 10 minutes in my gas oven and also added 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Totally awesome! For the "stickiness" I saw none, but I used a cookie disher and they were just fine.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2005
I needed a recipe that used up my 5 overripe bananas. I usually make banana bread, but I got tired of doing that or muffins. I saw this recipe for banana oatmeal cookies and decided to try it out. The amount of mashed bananas dictated the amount of cookie dough I was gonna make. I tripled the recipe, but omitted the nuts. Followed it exactly (cept I watched the cookies to make sure they didn't burn, it ended up that baking it for 13 minutes was perfect!) and oh boy, they are soooo good! Just like little banana breads, but in cookie form. It's not a crispy cookie, but a more cake-like cookie. Definitely will make these again when I have some overripe bananas to use up.

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2005
Awesome lasagna! A bit on the greasy side, but I suspect if I use a leaner ground beef and less cheese(I used 2 1lb bags) it'll turn out even better. I used the no-boil lasagna noodles and it turned out great. I also used 1 1/2 jars of Prego Pasta sauce flavored with meat(though I think I will try some chunky veggie one or mushroom one next time). I omitted the cottage cheese and substituted the garlic salt with a teaspoon of minced garlic. Oh, I also used a mozzarella/provolone shredded cheese mix instead of just straight mozzarella and it was real good. :9 I covered the baking dish in foil and it kept the cheese from burning....but be sure to "tent" it up a bit so it doesn't settle on your top cheese layer and stick to the underside of the foil. :) I found letting it cool for maybe 15 minutes or so makes it set up better. I'll definitely make this again! Maybe add some hot italian sausage with the beef to kick it up a notch, maybe some crushed red pepper too. :)

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2005
Came out awesome! But, watch out if you pile the crumb mixture too high...it may melt the brown sugar and it'll drip onto your oven floor. Otherwise, it's great! :)

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2003
Great and SIMPLE recipe! How could you go wrong? :) I'd definitely make this again, but next time I'd use fresh chicken breast instead of canned and add 1/2 to 1 more can of chicken broth. After it was cooked, I found that there was not enough soup and it became more of a stew than a soup. Yummy!

Blue Cheese Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2003
Definitely a VERY tasty and yummy dip! :9 Very easy to make! I'd serve celery sticks with this dip as well as with the corn chips as it would go well with them. Heck, even with buffalo wings I'd say. I'd make this again and again!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2003
Very yummy! It was easy to make, just I hate having to cut up veggies. :) I'd definitely make it again, but to cut down my prep time get chopped tomatoes from a can and pre-shredded lettuce. I think next time I'd leave out the diced tomatos and just have the salsa be the tomato part. I'm not much of a tomato fan, plus it makes the dip less watery.

Fudgy Chocolate Fondue

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2003
I doubled the recipe on this thinking I'd need more, but found I had too much. :) So, now I have chocolate fondue for later. :) It turned out awesome! :) VERY Fudgy/chocolatey!! We had cut strawberries, cut bananas, marachino cherries, and pieces of pound cake with this fondue. It was so yummy! :9 I'd definitely make it again, but this time not double the recipe unless I have like six people eating this. :)

Green Beans with Bread Crumbs

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
I liked these, but I think I put too many crumbs and olive oil in there to compensate for the larger amount of green beans. Next time, less is better in this recipe. I'd make it again. :9

Jamaican Jerk Pork Chops with Island Salsa

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
The pork chops came out great! Though, I think more spice is needed, maybe some bread crumbs too. The salsa was great, but there was too many black beans. Perhaps half the amount next time would make it better. Otherwise it was great! Chunks of pineapple worked with this recipe too!

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
I used baby red potatoes which got a bit charred in the roasting pan. Truth be told, I didn't turn the potatoes as the recipe said. I also think less time is needed for roasting baby red potatoes which I cut in half. Otherwise, even though it was charred, it was still awesome! I'll make this again, make sure to turn the potatoes and roast it for a lesser amount of time. Maybe 20 minutes.

English Trifle

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
This was easy to do and tastes divine! :) I had a bit too much white cake leftover though. I put my trifle into a large glass bowl, not an actual trifle bowl. But, I'd definitely make it again.

Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2003
These peanut butter cookies were great and easy to make too! :) I think what needs to be added to the preparation of the cookies to make it a better is to roll the cookie dough into balls(after measuring out an approximate tablespoon) then taking a small salad fork and pushing the fork onto the cookie dough balls making the "signature" cross-hatch design on the top of each cookie. It definitely came out a lot more round that way. Also, I had to cut back on the baking time a bit since it made the bottoms of the cookies a bit darker than I wanted. Otherwise, awesome recipe!

Hot Crab Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2003
ALWAYS a favorite at parties! I've made this particular hot crab dip recipe several times now and it's always all gone by the end of the party. Use jumbo lump crab meat for this recipe, it works best!
