Orange Cream Cookie Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2004
My husband and I received a jar of this cookie mix as a gift for Easter. I LOVE baking and make cookies all the time so was excited to try these out... You need to add water or milk or some liquid to the "dough" to be able to use it, and when it was done baking I had a yucky cookie sheet of orange flat blobs. They tasted awful, and I enjoy a traditional creamsicle, so something was definetly off. Please don't make these for people! The only good thing about this recipe was the smell of it baking if the oven.

Decorator Frosting I

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2004
This was a great starting point for frosting! I didn't add the almond and added lemon extract instead, and tinted it with food coloring. It came out pretty well. Thanks for this quick and easy recipe, I will probably use it again.

Mountain Dew™ Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2004
My husband LOVES Mt. Dew so I made this for his birthday. I made it into three 8 inch round pans and added a couple of drops of green food coloring to the cake batter. When it was done it was the exact color of Mt. Dew. I also frosted it with regular Decorator Frosting I (from this site) since my husband doesn't like pineapple or coconut. This made a different layer cake that was quite good and looked nice with some icing piped around the base and top. I made the pineapple coconut frosting for the side and it tasted wonderful but would have been way too sweet on the cake. Great fun recipe! Thanks!

Pan Dulces

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2004
I made the dough in my bread machine, and only used 4 cups flour (I had the 5th on hand in case the dough was too sticky) but it was just fine. If anything you probably could use 3 3/4 cups flour for a better texture, they were a little dense. I only put the topping on a few since I wasn't sure if we'd like it. I'm glad I did, because the topping never got crispy brown. It just stayed the nasty white color and are a little tough. The ones that I left plain looked really nice like dinner rolls. My husband thinks they are pretty good, we both agree on 4 stars. We're pretty picky with out rolls though, this is a really good recipe (minus 1 cup flour) and I may make this again since it was pretty easy.

Grandma's Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2004
These were pretty yummy and very easy. I made them for breakfast one morning and also sprinkled some sugar & cinnamon on the apples before I wrapped them in the dough. I did not make the sauce since we were out of orange juice, so we just topped them with some maple syrup and they tasted great. They do not keep well at all so make sure to eat them all fresh from the oven.

Ricardo's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2004
This is a nice flavored crust. I used half white and half wheat BM flour. I also doubled the recipe and ended up with three 12 inch crusts. I probably should have ended up with four since they baked up so thick, remember to roll thin. This came out well for our pizza night but I am still on the look-out for the perfect pizza crust. Thanks :)

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2004
This is the perfect chocolate glaze for donuts! I have an automatic mini donut maker and used this glaze on some donuts that had some mini chocolate chips in the batter. Very rich! This would be perfect on plain doughnuts as well. Thanks for the recipe!

Lemon Snowdrops

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2004
These had a wonderful flavor, but they didn't turn out like I had imagined. I didn't notice the review about pressing down the little dough balls so I just left them round and baked them (thinking they would spread out) but they didn't. What I had were a bunch of little cookie balls. There was no way I could make a sandwich out of them since they were so puffy, so I got a little creative...I put the filling in a pastry decorating bag and piped little designs on the top of my cookie balls. They looked so cute, like little white truffles. I will definetly make these again, and maybe change the food coloring color and decorate these with the filling on top since they looked and tasted so perfect. I bet you could also keep them puffy and drizzle some melted white chocolate over them also. For the actual recipe my only minor changes were to use 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond extract instead of the 1 tsp of lemon (didn't have any on hand) and I also put about 1/2 tsp of lemon zest in the cookie dough (not just the "filling" - topping). They were soooo tasty! I'm only giving 4 stars because the recipe did not mention shaping and flattening the dough balls.

Lemon Parmesan Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2004
Wow! I was pleasantly surprised at this recipe. It is something I would have never thought to come up with. I do not think children would like this, way too sour, but I loved it. It is sooo different. My husband hasn't sampled any yet and I don't think he would like it. It is very acidic, an acquired taste. I only baked mine for 10 minutes since the top was getting crispy. It was not dry at all. I only used 1/2 teaspoon of the lemon zest and along with the full ammount of lemon juice that was plenty. This would taste wonderful with some sugar snap peas.

Waikiki Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2004
Mmmm this was so yummy! Yes it was a little crumbly but what good cornbread isn't? My husband and I both loved this recipe and will definetly make it again. I used an insulated 9 by 13 pan and had to double the cooking time and increase the temp., 30 minutes at 350 was way too short for me. Give this cornbread a try, you won't be dissapointed :)

Maria's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2004
I'm a vegetarian but my husband eats meat, and this is the first time I've ever attempted to make a meat dish for him. I got a new wok for Christmas and decided to try to make his favorite "pepper steak" which he always orders at Chinese restaurants. He said this was pretty good but a little too "soy saucey." The flavors sound good to me and I may try this sauce with just some veggies and rice. Thanks for the recipe, it seems like a great starting point for some yummy dishes.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2004
This bread is pretty good but not as good as the Best Ever Banana Bread recipe also off of this site. The texture and appearance of this loaf was nice but the flavor was lacking. Maybe if you were to add some cinammon or some vanilla to this bread it would taste a lot better. This is a nice quick easy recipe though, you may want to give it a try.

Soft Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2004
These are very tasty breadsticks! My husband likes them better that our usual recipe so these may be our new standard. I substituted the minced garlic and italian seasoning for some garlic powder, onion powder, basil, and oregano ~ just a couple little shakes of each. These seem to taste better the next day, more flavorful at least. I made the dough in my bread machine and it turned out perfectly. These are some BIG breadsticks though, I would make them smaller by half since they rise so much ~ then you'd have double the quantity of normal sized breadsticks, but the huge ones were nice too. Overall we really enjoyed these and will most likely make them again.

Bread Machine Challah I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2004
This bread had a yummy flavor but the loaf was small and very dense, not the typical Challah I was expecting. I really liked the flavor but I don't think I'll use this recipe again. (revised review) I tried this recipe again on accident (forgot I tried it before!) with our new bread machine and it was a lot better. I made it especially for dipping with fondue and our guests loved the bread and requested the recipe! I think it worked out better because our new machine had a crust color setting and is more precise with the baking.

Sweeter Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2004
This is a wonderful muffin recipe, just a bit too sweet for my husband and I, even though we love sweet. I would cut down the sugar and definetly use this recipe again, the muffins looked perfect and the tops rose nicely.

Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2004
This is the first time I've ever made potato soup and it was wonderful! I even left out the onions (don't like them) and celery (husband doesn't like it). My husband loves potato soup and gave this 5 stars. I also used a vegetable boullion cube instead of chicken. This recipe is a keeper!

Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
I've tried a few cornbread casserole recipes and this is by far the best! I love that there is no egg in it! I will never bother to try another corn casserole recipe again, this one was perfect! Just a note, you do have to drain the whole kernel corn.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
I took a gamble and made this for Thanksgiving without "testing" the recipe first, and am happy I did. This is such yummy sweet potato casserole! I doubt I'll try another recipe again, this one was perfect! I added a little more brown sugar, so it was like a dessert. A little tip is that if you stir in a cup of mini marshmallows before putting this in the baking dish and stir them around a little you have marshmallow surprises throughout the casserole and not just on top. Thanks for this recipe!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2003
This is the best banana bread ever, seriously! I've tried a few others from this site and this one is better by far. I think I won't bother trying another banana bread recipe again, this is it! I did not add the nuts because my picky husband won't eat nuts, and for the bananas I added 4 regular sized ones. Yummy yummy! Thanks for this recipe!

Cinnamon Chip Applesauce Coffeecake

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2003
I made this in a bundt pan and just watched it for doneness. This was a tasty recipe that my husband and I both enjoyed. It was good, and I would recommend it, but I don't think I'll make it again right away. I'd like to try out other apple quick breads before I declare this my favorite.
