Chef John's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
This is the best, creamiest, most beautiful pumpkin pie ever. Try not to substitute the fresh nutmeg or five spice. Most big grocery stores have it in their Asian section and it is not expensive. As usual, Chef John's recipes do not disappoint!

Caramel Macchiato Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
This is absolutely incredible! Definitely go with the espresso, a double shot is the perfect amount, just a touch over 1/4 cup. I had a pan of water on the bottom rack of my oven preheating left it in there. Only had one tiny crack, very impressive!! The caramel and whipped cream cinched it! Brilliant!

This is so super tasty and so easy! If raspberries weren't so expensive, I'd make this every week! YUM!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
These were absolutely DECADENT! I used a chocolate cake mix and also froze the dough balls overnight with no problem. I can't wait to make them again!

Golden Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
These are OUT OF THIS WORLD! My husband thought for SURE they were the brand name crescent rolls you pop out of a can! For the reviewer that said they don't taste anything like croissants, that's because there is a difference between croissants and crescent rolls. This is not a recipe for croissants. Enjoy! Dough will not appear to have risen at all during each rising but they turn out perfectly!

Raspberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
These were really good and baked up beautifully! I didn't have any white chips so skipped them but can imagine that would have made this a FIVE star recipe!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
These are very good and VERY big! I rarely stray from my standby big chocolate chip cookie recipe but had to use up an egg yolk and this was a very good, bakery-type chocolate chip cookie!

Chocolate Cake V

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
I made this for someone who has a milk allergy in the family and it was really good! Moist and I didn't miss the milk! I halved this recipe and made two 9 inch cakes.

Pancakes I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
I thought these were VERY tasty, almost "pastry-like" for lack of a better word. They were well received by all! I should mention that I doubled the recipe but kept the milk at about 1 1/2 cups after doubling and the batter was plenty thin.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
I used regular all purpose flour and it seemed to work fine. I took the suggestion of adding some seasonings to the oil and also brushing the crust with some garlic powder and olive oil. I think I overdid it on the seasonings, though. All in all, this was a good crust that was easy to work with but I think I'm still on the hunt for the perfect homemade crust.

Chewy Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
These are definitely chewy! They are good but didn't rate them a five because they are just not QUITE as chocolatety as I would like. I think a 4.5 would be a good rating!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
This was very good crust! I was pleased with how easy it was to handle. I let it rise about a half hour in an oiled bowl. I prebaked it about 5-7 minutes. I made it in a 15x10x1 jelly roll pan.

Gingerbread Boy Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
Yummy! At first the dough seemed too much like batter, so I added about 1/3 C flour and it was perfect. After chilling for a couple hours as the recipe stated, the dough was very easy to work with. Instead of sprinkling flour to help keep the dough from sticking, use powdered sugar!

Whoopie Pies VII

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
I thought these turned out great! I liked this recipe because it didn't use shortening or butter in the cookie part. I used my own filling recipe: 1/3 C butter, softened, 3 C powdered sugar, 1 t vanilla, 1-2 T milk. Cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla and enough milk to reach desired consistency. I also tinted the filling orange and will use these for a fall themed bridal shower. Very yummy!

Brownie Torte

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
This torte is delicious and even better the next day. I think it would be nice to omit the strawberries and drizzle with some white chocolate.
