Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
I had the same problem as a previous reviewer - way too sticky to work with easily. I refrained from adding more flour, because I didn't want to take away from the flavor of the cookie, so I just floured my hands after every 2 or so cookies as I rolled the dough into balls. The flavor was great. I might not divide the dough next time and just combine the chocolate and the orange flavors, but the dual color cookie is cool, too. Oh, and they were extremely cakey.

Apricot Cream Cheese Thumbprints

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
I was disappointed. The cookie wasn't sweet enough for us. To me, they tasted just like biscuits with jam. Which is fine, but I was expecting a cookie, not a biscuit.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
I made this for my husband and a visiting relative of his, and am giving it 5 stars even though I didn't have any because I'm a vegetarian, the two guys absolutely LOVED it. My husband said it was some of the best chicken he's ever had.

Chicken Fiesta Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
I substituted vegetarian chicken strips for the real chicken, and we ate it cold the next day, which tasted even better than eating it warm. This was SO SO SO SO good!

Beans, Some Like It Hot!

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
The best way to describe this dish, in my opinion, is chilli with an exotic twist...my husband and I have dubbed it "Bombay Chilli." We really, really enjoyed it. I added half the called-for chili powder, and used a can of mixed salad beans instead of a can of kidney beans.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2006
I like my chocolate chip cookies to be crunchy thru-and-thru, so I switched the sugar amounts - 1 C. white sugar and 1/2 C. brown sugar. I also used 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil instead of an egg yolk. I refrigerated the dough for about an hour, then formed it into medium-sized balls. These cookies turned out so beautifully...literally, the most picture-perfect chocolate chip cookies I've ever seen. I wish we had a digital camera so I could take a picture and submit it with this review. The only thing I would change about their taste would be to add LESS chocolate chips. I never thought I'd see the day when I'd actually say that, because I am a chocolate freak. But unfortunately, the chocolate is almost the only thing you taste in these cookies. But...they're still great.

Veggie Pot Pie

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
I made individual pot-pies by pressing the crust into a big muffin cups tin. The veggies had really good flavor (I added garlic and onion powder, and a little cilantro).

Pasta e Fagioli I

Reviewed: May 2, 2006
Used great northern beans (drained them first). Didn't use onions. Used 2 extra cloves garlic. Used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

Vegan Baked Oatmeal Patties

Reviewed: May 1, 2006
I sub'd two egg whites and an extra 1/4 c. nuts (walnuts) for the nutritional yeast, and it worked great. I could only fit about 15 medium sized patties on my cookie sheet, so I pan-fried the rest of the patties (coated in corn starch first). The fried ones were GREAT...the baked ones were somewhat yucky. I will definitely make the fried version again, but not the baked ones. We ate them covered with a little spaghetti sauce.

Dilly Potato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
SO good! One reason it tastes so great is you don't have to think about the fact that you're eating gobs of mayo or sour cream - because you're not! This recipe uses plain non-fat yogurt. Don't be scared to try it - you won't regret it! However, we had to add a LOT more dill, some more mustard, lots of garlic powder, salt and a little pepper to really flavor it up. And the longer you let it sit in the fridge before you eat it, the better it tastes! I really can't say enough for this potato salad!

Puggie Woogie

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2006
Followed recipe exactly. Next time (if there is one) will use other reviewers' suggestions to liven them up a bit. Definitely not healthy, as one reviewer stated. It's fried batter covered in sugar - tell me how that's healthy?

Sun-Dried Tomato Cheesecake Squares

Reviewed: May 6, 2005
Good, but definitely very rich. The flavor turned out really good though, because I'm too stingy to buy sun-dried tomatoes so I used fresh tomatoes, chopped red bell pepper (key ingredient), and lots of garlic, as well as other seasonings to my own taste. Cut into SMALL squares to serve. Everyone liked them...I was actually surprised how fast they disappeared.

Tomato Alfredo Sauce with Artichokes

Reviewed: May 6, 2005
I don't even like alfredo sauce, but this is great! Probably because it's not creamy like you would think. It's light and flavorful...but definitely room for personaliztion!

Beth's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 6, 2005
It's all about how you mix the ingredients! I can't believe how many reviews I read that say the dough/cookies were so dry or cakey. I have made these cookies so many times, and every time I make them they are soft, chewy, not too flat, and certainly not cakey. *Here's the trick: Use an ELECTRIC mixer to CREAM the butter, shortening, and sugars, and eggs. Then later, when all of the ingredients have been combined, use your HANDS to really get in that dough and work it well, like you're a kid again and playing with mud. Or better yet, let your kids do it! It's all about melding the ingredients! They won't turn out dry or cakey if the dough is mixed well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fudgy Brownies I

Reviewed: May 6, 2005
Perfect brownie texture, but they were not rich and chocolatey enough to merit the name "Fudgy Brownies." They lacked oomph. I have renamed this recipe as "Chocolate Flavored Brownies."

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2005
Super easy and tastes just like a shortbread cookie should. To make them even better though, I replaced the vanilla extract with almond extract...yum! And then I melted chocolate chips and dipped the top of each cookie...so good!

Fruit Pizza II

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2005
I'm giving it four stars because the only part of this recipe I actually used was the citrus glaze. I used my own recipe for the pizza part. The glaze is great! I am so happy I tried it. It really adds that unique zing that will make your fruit pizza stand out from the rest.

Disgusting. Basically, it's egg yolks smeared over your fruit.
