Bacon and Date Appetizer

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2004
Had a giant (80-90 people) housewarming party and served these. These were SUCH a hit! No one can ever figure them out...and the uniqueness made them that much more popular! Pretty easy to prepare--a little labor intensive (stuffing and wrapping), but worth the fuss. I followed the other recommendations: used THICK deli bacon, salted/smoked almonds and fried in peanut oil!! Delicious! Highly recommend!

Coconut Macaroons II

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2004
Love it! I left them in a wee bit more than just "lightly browned" on the edges...as I liked the crunch and texture of the slightly more baked version. Skipped the foil, just used a good baking sheet and some cooking spray. Will definitely add these to my Christmas repetoire!

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2003
OUTSTANDING! I've had distrous results while trying to bake a pecan pie, but these turned out to be incredible! Didn't have all the corn syrup I needed, so substituted honey and maple syrup to make up the additional 3/4 cup and that substitute didn't seem to do anything to the recipe, but perhaps make it more flavorful. The crust on these are to die for...buttery and sinful. I actually cooked the end product about 12 - 15 more and that didn't seem to do any damage either (I was paranoid about it "setting" due to my past pecan pie disasters!), though it did make the crust on the rim a little more chewy and crunchy (caramelized it a bit more--I actually liked that part better...). All in all, a definite winner. One of the best dessert recipes I've used from allrecipes.....yum!

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2003
Okay, I'm convinced! It really is a very simple, wonderful bread recipe. I thought it was going to be disastrous, but since I'm stuck inside here on Christmas Eve due to incredible, torrential rain, I thought I'd give it a go....how wonderful it was! Tasty, sweet (but not TOO sweet) and has a fabulous aroma....give it a try, you'll be glad you did. I swapped one of the bread flour cups for another cup of whole wheat.....added fiber and very tasty. Merry Christmas!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2003
very nice. i didn't have parchment paper though and tried to put the loaves on a baking sheet. they ran and spread out once in the oven. i don't know if the parchment paper prevents this from happening, but you may not want to skip that step unless you do what i did: i sprayed non-stick cooking spray on some loave pans and picked up the now "spread" dough (it had already started to bake on the outside) and put it in the loaf pans to where it was about 1 1/2" deep. put the pans back in the oven and baked as instructed. the "loaves" popped right out and where easy to slice. though my biscotti had more of slightly 'square' shape, as opposed to the typical 'half-moon', it was beautiful, tasty and all-in-all, a success. i melted some gharadelli white chocolate chips and made little squiggles on them. they were beautiful. hope this helps!

Urban Legend Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2003
hi fellow bakers--i didn't have the chocolate bar and didn't feel like going to the corner to buy one, so i skipped that ingredient, yet the results were outstanding! what resulted was a very crunchy cookie that reminded both my husband and i of the original 'famous amos' cookies that are stellar with milk! CRUNCHY, TASTY AND OHSOGOOD! have fun!

Cracker Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2003
yum yum yum. used pecans instead of walnuts. was concerned about the sugar-butter mixture not firming up, so i cooked it a couple extra minutes....actually JUST until it kinda starting separating (brown sugar used, by the way)--and it turned out perfectly! very rich, but very good. will make it again!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2003
Love 'em. Just love 'em. Definitely double the cinnamon-sugar portion, you'll need it. I used 1/2 organic (raw) sugar and 1/2 white...it made for a nice "crunchy" finish.... a foolproof recipe (make sure and keep to the time limit).....LOVE 'EM!

Tomato Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2003
WOW.. this was a very simple, very wonderful soup. It's simple in flavor too and isn't too spicy ... I used what was in my pantry and used 1 can of crushed tomatoes and 2 fresh tomatoes instead of the can of chopped. Once everything was cooked, I put everything in the blender and creamed it..... I sauteed a can of crabmeat in butter and served it on the side. My husband raved and raved and raved!!! Perfect for a winter's day!

Cheese and Broccoli Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2003
This soup is definitely worthy of all the great reviews...I just modified it a bit: 1) instead of chicken breasts, I boiled a young chicken (Mom always told me the meat on the small, young birds is better), de-boned the chicken and used that instead 2) instead of the 11 cups of water, I used the chicken stock I got from the boiled chicken, I doubled the cream and used heavy instead of light. I doubled it because the soup seemed a little salty for my taste (plus I used Knorr boullion cubes, and I think they may have been a tad bigger than the run-of-the-mill cubes)..so you may want to save the salt until the end and salt-to-taste instead of adding it during "adding the ingredients" part. It really is a very lovely soup and not at all "cheesey", as I was afraid. I wouldn't even have known there was cheese in it... oh, and 3) I also added a cup of sliced baby carrots which added some color and sweetness. I DEFINITELY am making this one again!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2003
Ohhhhh yea! Spectacular, fabulous and divine! Thanks for a wonderful, lip-smacking, shake-your-groove-thing recipe! I added 3/4 c chopped walnuts, used all butter instead of shortening and they were so very delectable.

Brandied Orange and Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2003
okay, if you make this--please concentrate on making the zest FINE... i made the mistake of grating the orange rind and it was WAAAAYYY TOO much and waaaay too thick. as a new bride i was very concerned about the sauce that i promised to do for my in-law's and my first t'giving together..and i ended up staying up until 3 am, gingerly removing the extra zest with tweezers!! i am NOT kidding! please make it FINE, THIN or whathaveyou. either way, i also agree with the other reviewers: that you may want to reduce the amount to 1/3 cup. now all that said: THIS IS AMAZING STUFF. it's glorious and you'll want more (my mother-in-law took some home--so the tweezering was obviously WORTH IT!). ENJOY!! you will! **review update: I tried this again for Christmas and didn't have any brandy so I used Liquor 43 (a vanilla liquor), it was just as OUTSTANDING.... also, I used about 1/4 cup of zest and it was just as good!
