Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Excellent, I used 9g fresh yeast and did it by hand, not in the breadmaker. I let it rise until doubled, then punched it down and put it in a greased loaf pan, let it rise again and baked for 35min at 375F, it turned out fantastic, excellent texture and taste :)

Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
WOW!! This turned out incredibly tasty. My stove sucks so the milk never boiled, even after 2 hours, so I tempered the eggs with the very hot milk and then cooked the eggnog on the stove top, again it never really thickened. My only change was adding a dash of cardamon. I served it Christmas Eve and everyone agreed it was incredible! I may never buy eggnog again!

Bread Machine Thin Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
This was pretty good, I added 1/2 tsp each of oregano and basil to the flour and it had pretty good taste, I think plain would have been, well too plain. As someone else stated, the crust wasn't that crisp, I think I just needed to bake mine longer and at a slightly lower temp, as the top was brown and the underside was still soft.

Sausage Cheese Cornbread

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
This was really good, only it needed some adjustments and it would be nice if the original author would clarify some stuff in the recipe. First off, I tried it AS written, 1 1/2 cups of cornmeal + 2 1/4 tsp baking powder + 1 tsp salt, plus the wet ingredients. I ended up using a full 14oz can of corn and I still didn't have enough batter. I added a 1/2 cup of milk and another 1/2 cup of corn meal and 1/2 tsp of baking powder and that gave me enough batter for the recipe. I also sauteed the onion and bell pepper with the sausage and mixed a drained can of chopped chilis into the batter. In the end it turned out REALLY yummy, but it needed the extra batter ingredients. It would be nice to know if the self rising corn meal needs to be prepared as per the box directions or not, as I used this recipe b/c I was out of the Jiffy stuff and only had regular cornmeal.

Baked Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
Awesome recipe. I followed another reviewer's lead and did this all on the stove. I didn't have the dry mustard powder and I added a tsp of Worcestershire sauce. I sprinkled both sides of the chops with the sugar, pepper and salt before I seared them. Then I seared them quickly on both sides, reduced the heat to low and covered them with the rest of the sugar, salt and pepper mixed with the juice and tomato sauce and let them simmer until done. YUMMMO!

Egg and Cheese Puffs

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
Hmm! I made this for breakfast this morning. I made a few changes and it still turned out great (I plan on buying the correct ingredients and making a full batch to freeze). First off I made 1/4 batch, because it's just me. Second, I didn't have cottage cheese so I used plain yogurt and shredded parmesean (recipe called for 1/2 cup so I used 1/2 cup of each). Then I cubed up some feta cheese and threw that in too. I also don't like spicy, so instead of the peppers I used San Francisco mixed veggies (green beans, peppers, onions, broccoli). Finally I used whole wheat flour and I didn't have muffin tins so I made it as a loaf. It turned out great, fluffy and delicious, I can't wait to try it with cottage cheese!

Easy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
I used this recipe for a breakfast bake. The only things I did different were that I used 1/3 C whole wheat flour and 2/3 C white flour, I added 1 tsp vanilla and I cut back on the salt. I left the baking powder at 2 tbsp and it turned out fine. I made the batter as instructed, then mixed in various fruits (strawberries, blueberries, sliced banana and peaches), then I poured the batter into a greased loaf pan and baked. It took about an hour to bake fully, it puffed up nicely and tasted really good. I sliced my breakfast loaf and served with a little plain yogurt. I give it a 4/5 because I changed a few things and didn't make it as pancakes.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
Awesome!! some of them didn't puff as much as I would have liked, but I keep my house pretty cool so I assume the just didn't rise enough. Most of the puffed up like balloons in the oven :) The only thing I changed was I used 1 cup white flour, and 2 cups stone ground whole wheat, and i used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. This recipe is definitely a keeper :)

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
OMG! yum yum yum! I made these for breakfast this morning and they turned out wonderful!! My only complaint is they have a slight bitter taste, but I'm attributing that to the fact that I substituted raw sugar for white sugar. I also used frozen blueberries instead of raisins/currents and plain nonfat yogurt instead of sour cream. Definitely keeping this recipe!!

Spooky Witches' Fingers

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
Wow were these great!! I made the dough and rolled them out the night before I baked them. The cookie itself is a not too sweet shortbread-style cookie and is really nice. I made half the dough into fingers for a fund raising bake sale and the other half I made into thumbprint cookies, I made a little caramel frosting and toasted some nuts and put these in the thumbprints and they turned out great too! This recipe will be brought out again next Halloween! Thanks for the great recipe! I also have turned these into eyeball cookies, round ball cookies with a chocolate chip pressed in the middle for the pupil, then gel icing for iris and blood vessels!

Mom's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
HMMM!! good biscuits!! Mine didn't puff up much at all but that might be because of my alterations. I used 1 c white, 1 cup stone ground whole wheat flour, I also used 3 tsp powder and 1/2 tsp soda, I didn't have buttermilk so I made sour milk with vinegar and milk, I used butter not shortening and added 1/2 cup shredded cheddar. I didn't brush them with anything before baking (milk/butter) but will next time to make them prettier. They tasted great, but I wish they had puffed up more :(

Broccoli Sausage Breakfast Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
OMG! So yummy! The only changes I made were I used 1 serving of veggies, sausage and batter, since I was only cooking for myself, I used pancake batter and I used taco blend cheese. I can't eat plain eggs so I have a hard time finding things to eat for breakfast. This recipe will be a keeper and probably subjected to many variations!

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly, my dough was actually a little dry, not sure if this is b/c I use stone ground whole wheat flour or not. The biscuits turned out light and fluffy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. My only complaint is that they didn't puff up very much, maybe because there wasn't enough liquid? Will definitely make again, but make as drop biscuits and add milk until the dough is sticky :)

Chocolate Chip Bread I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
This bread was awesome! I made it and had it for breakfast all week, it also made yummy french toast! I put my chocolate chips in the freezer for an hour before I made the bread and they stayed as chips and didn't melt and make chocolate bread :)

Chewy Brownie Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
Fabulous! I've been looking for a brownie cookie recipe and I've finally found a great one! I used butter, as per others suggestion and doubled the recipe, since I knew they'd go fast. I used 3 cups of semi-sweet chips and 1 cup of milk chocolate chips. I think next time I'll use milk, semi-sweet and white chocolate, perhaps even go wild with nuts, marshmallows and caramel chips! What a fabulous base dough. The cookies didn't spread that much for me, I was able to fit 12 to a pan like I do with normal cookies. The cookies were still soft and scrumptious the next day after sitting out all night :) Thanks for the fabulous recipe!

Sour Cream Banana Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
Yummo! I made a few changes because I was missing a few ingredients. First I used strawberry yogurt instead of sour cream since that's what I had and I added 1 tsp of lemon juice to make up the acidity that was lost by not using sour cream. I also put the cinnamon into the batter and instead of filling the ring with the nut mix (I had no nuts) I used chocolate chips. The only problem I had was that my tube pan was too big so it didn't rise up inside the ring much and it cooked quicker than in the recipe. I also used too few chocolate chips :) Other than my failings the cake was great, I flipped it out and sprinkled with icing sugar and it lasted less than 4 days between my boyfriend and myself.

Seven Grain Bread II

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2006
Yummo! SO good! I too have a 1 1/2 lb machine so I did a little math and figured out the correct amt of ingredients for this recipe. A lot of stuff is in mL, sorry, I also put the egg in the cup before measuring out my water (if I don't do this the bread over rises). 235mL water (including egg); 2 tsp yeast; 2 tbsp dry milk (94mL wet); 4 tsp oil; 4 tsp honey; 1 1/4 tsp salt; 2 1/2 cups flour (I use all whole wheat); 1/2 cup cereal. Makes 1 very delicious 1 1/2 pound loaf. Oh if putting in the bread maker overnight reduce the amount of yeast or it will overrise significantly lol, I found out the hard way.

Souvlaki

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
YUMMY! I used red and orange peppers and didn't marinate the onions, I was afraid they'd make everything taste like onion, other than that I followed the recipe faithfully. I marinated the meat and veggies separately for about 2 hours then skewered them and put them on an indoor grill and it turned out great! A little bit of rice with lemon, tomato and feta as a side dish and some tzatziki to dip it in and it was fabulous! Now I no longer have to go out to eat to have good souvlaki! Thanks so much for the great recipe! Oh I also used red, not yellow onion :)

Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
YUM YUM!! I strained the yogurt in the fridge for about 1.5 hrs before I made this and I shredded the cukes and strained them too. It was fabulous! creamy and garlicky and yummy :) If I hadn't strained it it definitely would have been too runny. I also didn't bother food processing it, I like the crunch of the cukes. Thanks for a fabulous recipe :)
