Flavored Cappuccino Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2003
Well, I followed the recipe exactly, and then put the mix through a blender to get a nice homogenous texture. When I tried it (using 2-3 teaspoons of the mix, as the recipe states), it seemed really bland and watery. I added more mix, and found that 2-3 TABLEspoons makes a delicious cup. Typo? With that correction, I enjoy this recipe, and will be making it again. Thanks, Nancy!

Fantastic! A new favorite. I like its versatility-- next time I may add green beans or rutabega. Thanks!

Oatmeal Pudding Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
Yummy! I like the versatility of the pudding mix. I used butterscotch pudding this time, and next time I'll try coconut. Thanks!

Carrot Pineapple Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2004
Very good, even though I made it without the walnuts or frosting. I'm eager to try it with the nuts, and with less fat, and maybe some whole wheat flour to give it more texture. Thanks!

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2004
Wow- these turned out very well despite a number of substitutions. I used what I had on hand, which was all beef, canned Parmesean/Romano blend, packaged plain breadcrumbs, and dried parsley, plus only 1 cup of water. I also used a non-stick skillet with just a brushing of olive oil. These meatballs weren't too difficult, and I'll probably interchange these with my usual meat-sauce. I also like that I can prepare a big batch once and freeze some for later (a half-batch made ~40 1.5 inch meatballs). Thanks, Geanine!

Angel Hair Pasta Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2004
This was so delicious that I'm giving it 5 stars even though I made a few personal changes. My husband won't eat broccoli, so I used chopped green pepper. I also covered the skillet at the end and simmered it for about 10 minutes to soften the veggies even more. The only change I would definitely recommend would be to stir in the cheese at the very end, just before serving, as the last simmering melted it into strange globs. Overall, a new favorite recipe! Thanks, Sue!

Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2004
Incredible! I used pecans instead of walnuts, and added about 2t instant coffee after the eggs, which upped the decadence even more. They took a little longer to bake for me, about 10-11 min., but most of that's probably just my baking stone warming up. I will be making these again and again and again...

Hot Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2004
Amazing! The first time I made this was with part-skim mozzarella, canned Parmesan, diced smoked sausage and diced green bell pepper-- and it was pretty tasty. The second time was with whole-milk mozzarella, real freshly grated Parmesan, and pepperoni, and it was absolutely incredible! Better than actual pizza. (Both times I used low-fat cream cheese and divided it between two ramekins.) The only downside is that it's not very visually appealing after it's cooked-- just sort of an orange glop-- but man, is it tasty. This will be one of my signature appetizers. Thank you!

Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2004
Very, very good. I was told it's the best ever, though I thought it seemed to be missing something. It was delicious anyway, and it was all eaten very quickly. This will probably be my default recipe, though I may tinker with it. Thanks!

Sara Jane's Oatmeal Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2004
I can't rate this because it was actually my husband who made it (his first cake!). But I was impressed; it turned out great! The nutmeg stood out more than I expected. I thought it was pretty good, he (not being a fan of oatmeal taste) didn't care too much for it. I would give it 4 stars. I'll probably make it again myself a few times again, as it was a very yummy cold-weather treat.

Caramel Snack Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2004
Delicious & addictive! Nice and sweet and crisp, and not to mention easy! I made a batch for a party, and had to make another since the first one mysteriously vanished beforehand. (The second time I used walnuts and peanuts instead of the pecans, and it was good, but the pecans were better.) Thanks!

Fudge Truffle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
WOW! As a certified chocoholic, I can say that this is _almost_ too chocolatey... but not quite. It is incredibly rich though, so start with thin slices. I used Pecan Sandies crumbs, which made the crust a little oily, but still yummy. Overall, a _delicious_ recipe that I will save for serious chocoholics. Thanks, Anne!

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
Absolutely delicious! A wonderful medley of flavors, and so much more visually appealing than slices of that canned stuff. A new holiday favorite!

Old Fashioned Paradise Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
Absolutely sensational! I ran out of vanilla and used _maple_ extract, and WOW. Also, even though I slowly spooned the pumpkin layer onto the cheesecake layer, it still marbled; but the effect was really quite pretty. If one really wanted to keep the layers seperate, perhaps refrigerating the cheesecake layer longer would help. Overall, a new holiday favorite. I will be looking for excuses to make this. Thank you, Holly!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
Incredible! I don't like sweet potatoes, but even I can tell that this is delicious. And sweet potato-lovers go nuts for it. It seems like an excuse to eat sweet potato pie (sans crust) with dinner. A holiday staple for me!

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2004
Delicious! Very light and soft. I didn't have "Bread Machine Yeast" but used rapid rise yeast instead. This will be my default recipe for basic white bread. Thanks!

Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2005
The best pancakes I've ever tasted! I have to admit that I goofed and used all-purpose flour instead of whole wheat, but the resulting batter was so watery that I added a lot of whole wheat flour to thicken it up. The resulting pancakes were tall and fluffy and full of nutty-grain goodness. I served these with diced fresh peaches (sugared and microwaved for about a minute to make a syrup), and it was delicious! Thank you!
