Sy's Challah

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This turned out great for me! It was easy, looks beautiful, great texture, and tastes great. I will definitely make it again and may even make several loaves to give as gifts during the holidays. Would be a really nice gift with a jar of homeade jelly. YUM. Try it!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
I would give this 4 1/2 stars if I could. I thought it was very good but w/ all the great reviews, I guess I expected even better. I thought it was very moist and, while yummy, I thought it could have used a stronger pumpkin and spice flavor. I will make it again though and maybe tweak the recipe some. I followed the recipe exactly except that I made one loaf and 12 muffins only b/c I only have one loaf pan.

Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
These were good but not great. I don't think I would use the cocoa in them if I made them again and I think I would use more of the spices. I am going to keep looking for a better gingerbread cupcake recipe. I didn't use the frosting recipe.

Eggplant Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
I loved this! I breaded and baked my eggplant though b/c I thought I would like it better that way. I cut the eggplant into 1/4 inch slices and dipped them in a mix of 1 egg mixed with 1 T milk then dipped them in a mix of 1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs mixed with 2 T graded parmesan. Then baked them for about 25 minutes at 375.

Lemon Chicken III

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
I thought this was really good, especially for how easy it is. I only marinated the chicken for about 20 minutes in the lemon juice, just b/c of lack of time. I also didn't measure the juice but I doubt I even used 1 cup for 4 breasts. I also only pan cooked the chicken for about 5 minutes on each side, if that. I'm always looking for new recipes for boneless, skinless chicken breast and this will definitely go into my rotation.

Fish Tacos with Honey-Cumin Cilantro Slaw and Chipotle Mayo

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
We thought these were good but I'm debating whether they were worth the effort. The peppers are way too hot. I used only 1 and it was still really, really hot. Also, I didn't really love the cumin sauce. I think cumin is better when it is cooked into something not just 'raw', if that makes any sense.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
Wow. These are REALLY good. I think I like them even better the next day. The only problem is that they are really addictive. B/c they aren't really rich, it is easy to just keep eating and eating them. Consider yourself warned :)

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
This was the first time I ever made a cheesecake and it turned out great. I followed the recipe exactly except that I used low fat cream cheese and low fat sour cream. I also added some sugar and cinnamon to the crust. I sprayed pam on the pan before I put the crust in and I only beat the cream cheese, sugar, and milk then mixed the rest by hand. I did set out the cream cheese for a little bit before I got started but it was still pretty cold. I didn't have time to wait for it to come to room temperature. I also put a pan with water in it on the rack below the cheesecake. I was too afraid to put the cheescake in a water bath for fear of water leaking into it. My cake didn't crack, the flavor was great, and it was nice and creamy and not too dense, just how I like it.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
I'm giving these 4 stars b/c I don't think it's fair to rate them poorly since I need to play around with them but...am I the only one that followed lebellmelange's review and assumed she meant that INSTEAD OF 2 cups white sugar to use 1 cup powdered and 1 cup white sugar? I realized later, after my dough was super soft and sticky and spread during baking that I must have done something wrong and then I realized she meant that she added an additional 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup powdered sugar. ack! I tried to knead in the additional white sugar to the dough I had left after the first batch of cookies I baked. I put it in the fridge for a few more hours and the dough still got soft super fast while rolling and was hard to cut and transfer but I do think they maintained their shape better during baking and were crispier cookies, not as cake-like as they were originally. So, I'll try these again sometime following lebellemelange's instructions properly! I thought they tasted good.

Fudge Puddles

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
Very good! Easy and impressive looking! I just melted the chips and the milk in the microwave for about 1 minute on high then stirred in the vanilla. Also, for me, there was exactly the right amount of fudge filling for 48 cookies. In fact, I almost ran out. I was scraping the bowl to get enough. I must have made my wells deeper then others did. Will definitely make again.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
This is a staple at my house in the summer. I don't know about 'unbelievable' but it is very good and healthy too. It's also good to serve to company since it's pretty non-offensive. And the leftovers are great for sandwiches or chopped up in salad. I use dijon mustard instead of coarse grain.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
LOVE these! ***update: this year I made a bunch of cookie dough and froze it in advance of the holidays then thawed out the dough and baked everything. Maybe it was a fluke but this is the only dough that did not work for me after being frozen. The cookies would just NOT cook inside. The outsides would seem done and I'd cook them for way longer then necessary and they still would be raw inside. So, it may just be that this dough does not freeze well.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
This was good and would be a nice side dish for a mexican meal, I always have a hard time coming up with side dishes for mexican meals. I only used 1 can of black beans, used a green pepper instead of red, and didn't use the green onions and I doubled the dressing. Will make again.

Easy and Fun Peanut Butter Balls

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
This is a great recipe to make with kids. Not only can they help add and mix in the ingredients but it's especially fun having them form the balls and roll them into other ingredients. We add rice krispies to the mixture (adds a nice crunch) and roll the balls in oats. YUM.

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
These are awesome. I've made them a few times and this last time I left out the hazelnuts and threw in some white chocolate chips to the dough instead. Otherwise, I follow the recipe exactly.

Roasted Red Pepper Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
This was excellent. I didn't change a thing except that my peppers didn't take quite as long to broil...maybe 15 minutes. I considered adding mozzarella as some others suggested but I'm glad I didn't. The taste was delicious and I liked that it was 'lighter' then other lasagnas that can be too rich from the ricotta and mozzarella.

Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2005
This was very good. My husband said "it's a keeper". You definitely need to let the marinade and sauce sit overnight. Neither of them tasted good at all right after making them but after the flavors have blended for a while they taste much better. As other reviewers have mentioned, the sauce does have quite a kick so you'll have to like that - I thought it tasted like there was horseradish in it but I like that.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2005
Very good cake. I don't know if I'd say it was the best cake I've ever had but it was really good and very easy to make. I'm not a big cake fan but this is more like a brownie cake. It's a great cake to take to a party since it doesn't need to be refrigerated and it's dense and slices easily. Plus it's easy to make it look really pretty by dusting it with powdered sugar and adding fresh berries.
