Cookie Pralines

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2014
These are perfect for the person who loves the praline flavor, but doesn't have the time, patience or weather to make the candy. It did look awfully liquidy until I added the pecans, and even then was a loose pile of nuts and sugar but bakes out to a perfect cookie with chewy texture. I did only get twenty five or so cookies out of it, with about a teaspoon each of "dough".

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2014
I picked this recipe after opening a can of pumpkin puree and using a tablespoon for the dog. Usually make the pumpkin zucchini bread on this site, but didn't have zucchini. Every fall, when I start craving pumpkin baked goods, I forget to modify the spices - I don't like full on pumpkin pie spice and usually half the nutmeg and ginger, and just use a pinch of cloves. As usual, remembered when I tasted the dough, had that pumpkin pie sharpness, so added a teaspoon of vanilla to cut the spice, and a cup of chopped walnuts, then sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top. The spices baked out, could hardly taste them in the first slice, which I thought was a bit bland, but nice and moist - but after I went back for the third slice, decided it was actually very good. the topping does add that extra needed taste to it. Did one 9x5 loaf pan, and have enough for one more pan,and maybe some muffins for tomorrow. Will keep this one on hand.

Jan's Chipotle Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
I estimated amounts of each spice,as I tested the recipe on a half of a potato for me (single serving), but kept the proportions of the original recipe. Rather than quartering, I sliced lengthwise into french fry like sizes. Used olive oil, and forgot I had chipotle powder and subbed chili powder - but the combination of sweet, salty and spicy was amazing. This goes on my repeat list, will definitely impress guests as well.

Chicken Saag

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
I love Indian food, but so much of the recipes call for ghee or other items that I just don't have on hand. This recipe was easy to follow, and easy to modify if needed. I cut the recipe in half, used diced fire roasted tomatoes, cut up chicken tenderloins,left out the clove because my garam masala has plenty of that flavor already; you do need to adjust spices to taste, I used the full serving amounts, plus adjustments. Ate a serving before realizing I had forgotten the greek yogurt and butter - it was great flavor, but didn't have the restaurant creaminess; with the yogurt it was perfect, the chicken was tender and spinach flavorful. Agree that spinach was not fully wilted with 1/4 cup, but didn't affect recipe outcome. Really recommend this one, plan to do it again with chickpeas.....

Double Layer Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
I tweaked this recipe quite a bit based on other reviewers comments. I used 8 oz cream cheese,2 tbsp sugar, the topping as listed, and no milk. Chilled the store bought crust, then put the first layer in then put the pie in the freezer while fixing the second layer. The second layer I started with half of the pumpkin and half and half - not milk, then played to get a good texture.... ended up with 3/4 can pumpkin, the 2 packages of vanilla pudding, 1 tsp vanilla, a 1/2 to 2/3 cup of half and half, 2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2-3/4 tsp nutmeg, plus a couple of globs of whipped cream topping. This made a nice spreadable but thick layer with a spicy pumpkin taste. Brought it to the office, told folks it was in the fridge, and I have been stopped repeatedly with compliments. I have been told I have to make it again for Christmas... :) Not really cheesecake, not pudding, I called it pumpkin cream pie.

Oatmeal Craisin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
I followed reviewer suggestions and added extra cup of oatmeal, cup of nuts and tsp of cinnamon. Used a cup of craisins, but next time will add the bag. The resulting cookie spread flat, but crispy at the edges and chewy towards the center. Excellent oatmeal flavor punctuated by the sweet craisins. Will use this again.

Almond Drops

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
I made this cookie as is so I would have something butter and almond for my Asian friends at work. I used rounded dinnerware tsp size, they do spread - still got 60 cookies out of the batch, and they are to die for flavor. Do let them cool on the cookie sheet or they might break apart. I already emailed the recipe to me, as I will get requests....

Chewy Maple Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
I followed other suggestions and substituted maple extract for vanilla, and extra flour, then put in fridge. You must quickly go from fridge to cool cookie sheet for the cookie to hold the drop shape; I did all the cookies on sheets at once, and the subsequent cookies fell flat 5 minutes out of the oven. But - the flavor is amazing, the middle stayed chewy - my taste testers all said it was like hot pecan pancakes with syrup. This goes on the keeper list..

Sweet Potato Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
I made 2 batches of this recipe for an office T-day meal. First tip is, the "boil 15 minutes or til tender" - tender for me was just as it started to boil, only I went 10 minutes on the first one and had to throw out 40 oz of yams that collapsed in the syrup. Next two batches did ok. I did cut the white sugar back to 1/2-2/3 cup as recommended by other users. Took it out 5-7 minutes early, knowing I would microwave at the office, and the streusel was initially soft, but seems to be hardening up. Did do a small taste test, and don't believe there will be any left tomorrow, but I will doctor it with cinnamon and nutmeg next time. Very easy if you just don't overcook the yams...
