Classic Butter Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
Fantastic recipe and superb crispness and flavor. I made these in my cookie press and it was the perfect consistency without chilling the dough which makes this not only a delicious cookie but super quick and easy. I followed the directions exactly (except I accidentally used 1/2 tsp instead of 1/4 tsp salt, which apparently didn't matter). If I could give this recipe 10 stars, I would, it is just THAT good.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
Wow. This recipe is simply amazing. I can see why it has won blue ribbons. My husband had been requesting a coconut macaroon like his Aunt Orphie used to make and after several trials of different recipes, this is the one. Make them small, about half the size of a ping-pong ball if you want them like Aunt Orphie's ; - ). If you want a traditional macaroon, use this recipe. I followed it EXACTLY and the cookies came out simply perfect. Since you have to mix them up with your hands, don't do as I did and forget to put in the vanilla until after you're up to your elbows with the "dough." Thankfully hubby was there to help me out. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. It's simply the best!

Farm Macaroons

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
I was disappointed. Too sweet, didn't brown in 300 deg oven, not what I consider a macaroon. After tasting the first batch to come out of the oven, I added another cup of coconut to the rest of the batter, they needed more coconut. I used sweetened coconut as there is no unsweetened coconut available in the store. Apparently the recipe should state "unsweetened flaked coconut" because these were horrendously sweet. So, if using sweetened coconut, cut the sugar WAY back. All-in-all, save yourself some trouble and pass on this recipe. There are better ones out there.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2007
I really love this recipe, however, a 1-qt baking dish is way too small.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2005
This soup was fabulous! The only change I made was I used ham chunks instead of sausage. This was my first successful split pea soup and I will definitely make this again and again.

Lemon Pudding Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2003
This recipe bakes beautifully, the cake part is superb and has a great texture, probably from the whipped egg whites. It is really very good, but not enough lemon flavor for my taste. If you're looking for a hint of lemon in an excellent pudding cake, this is for you.
