Raspberry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
As one reviewer noted, it tastes a bit (just a bit) like Cool Whip. I will look for a recipe that doesn't call for as much whipping cream. But overall - super yummy!

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
BEST dinner rolls EVER. So easy and amazingly delicious. I halved the recipe, and they all fit perfectly in an 8x8 pan. Next time I will add only a couple teaspoons of sugar, as the rolls were slightly sweet as is, and I don't prefer sweet bread.

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
I use Vegenaise instead of mayo, and I prefer to blend it to make a pastier spread. It tastes sooooo good!

Palmiers

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
I really want to like these more than I do. They turned out so little...I thought maybe they'd be bigger and puffier. And they practically burned...I have an oven thermometer, so I know I kept them at the exact heat the recipe called for, and for the exact time. And I don't like picking the hard, carmelized sugar out of my teeth while I'm eating them.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
So good! Like a zucchini crepe, or omelette. Eggier than I expected, but I wasn't disappointed!

Japanese Zucchini and Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
Very good. I always appreciate new ways to eat zucchini! A little bland, but I actually like bland sometimes. I used toasted sesame oil instead of teryaki sauce (I didn't have any). Next time I'll add straw mushrooms.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
I never end up liking recipes that use applesauce, so I almost didn't try this one. But I am SO glad I did! I think my search for the perfect whole grain waffle is finally over! The waffles were surprisingly light, not heavy at all.

Spring Biscotti

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
Not to be a stick in the mud, but these were SO pistachio-y. The cranberries and white chocolate were overwhelmed by the pistachios. Also, as another reviewer noted, the loaves did split a little while baking, and did not cut very well (crumbly). I followed the recipe EXACTLY.

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
I love these. I used only semisweet chips, no butterscotch. These bars kind of remind me of Mounds candy bars with the coconut and dark chocolate.

Fig and Date Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
This bread is good, don't get me wrong, but I guess I had a somewhat romanticized idea of how this bread would taste. For as expensive as it is to make (and time consuming if you chop your dates and figs yourself, as I did), I don't think it's really worth it. I have other recipes for figs that I like better.

Bird Seed Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
These are really good. But because I give recipes I like better five stars, I'm giving this one four.

Pecan Squares Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
I LOVE LOVE LOVE pecan pie, and now I LOVE LOVE LOVE these cookie squares! I used dark corn syrup. And because I used a 9x13 pan, I only used 1 c. of corn syrup instead of 1.5 cups. I kept the crust amount and the amount of pecans the same as the recipe. It turned out GREAT!

Elisa's Famous Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
I haven't actually made this yet, but I will say that if you are going to make this recipe (take this from someone who has made TONS of fudge) increase the amount of chips (morsels)! This recipe calls for only 3/4 cup of each kind of morsel...when I make this, I am going to use 1.5 cups EACH. Based on the amounts of other ingredients in this recipe, you need around 3 cups of chips TOTAL for this to come out just right.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
I made a ton of this to give away as Christmas gifts, and I was a little nervous because it was my first time making fudge, so I read up a little bit on how to get fudge to turn out just right...and my fudge came out PERFECTLY! This is such a great recipe, and I suggest finding the fudge-making tips on this site.

Lemon Sugar Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
I doubled the recipe and they turned out perfect. Followed (doubled) recipe exactly, except for the parchament paper. I just lightly sprayed the cookie sheet with canola oil. For those whose cookies don't seem to turn out, it's not the recipe's fault. Substituting margerine for butter, for example, can make a huge difference in a cookie. There is a good advice article on this site about the "science" behind cookies and how each ingredient affects the outcome. An oven thermometer is also a great tool to have (they cost as little as $4). Anyway, these cookies are great. They manage to be crispy and chewy at the same time. And for us, the lemon flavor is plenty strong.

Chicken Pesto Paninis

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
super yummy. i used vegetarian chicken strips instead of real chicken. next time i will omit the chicken altogether, though. the flavor of the green peppers and the onions with the cheese and basil pesto was so good on its own. i don't have a panini press so i wrapped each sandwhich in foil and heated them in a 425 degree oven for about 15 or 20 mins.
