Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
yummy, yummy and yummy. I love the simplicity of these cookies. My cream of tartar was long expired and I wasn't able to find any at the grocery store, so I used the substitution someone else mentioned of 1 tsp baking powder and 3/4 tsp baking soda. These cookies have a slightly crispy exterior but overall are soft and chewy. Just make sure not to over bake them. As long as the family likes these as much as I do, I will be adding them to my list of Christmas must-haves.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
These were good, but not my favorite. Although my husband and mother in law loved them. I used my mixer for it and perhaps that is why they were a little fluffier/flakier than I like. I prefer a soft and chewy cookie and I'm wondering if I mixed everything by hand if that would have made the difference. I might have to try this recipe one more time, without the aid of a mixer, and see if my opinion changes.

Linda's Monster Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
The only real change I made was to use shortening instead of margarine. Like others have said, margarine just didn't seem 'right'. I also halved the recipe and I still ended up with a ton. I used mini M&M as well. In my opinion, these cookies are fabulous! Nice a chewy the way a good cookie is meant to be (in my books at least). I will be making this one again. I may try substituting half the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips, or using peanut butter as others have said. Either way, these cookies are good just the way they are.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
These cookies are amazing! I made some minor adjustments by adding about 1/4cup extra peanut butter as I just wanted to use up what was left. Because of that, I added 1/4 cup extra flour. I also added 1/2 cup peanut butter chips, since I had them on hand and figured why not! I made them nice and big, using an ice cream scoop and baked for 18-20 minutes. I have been looking for a kick butt peanut butter cookie recipe and this one is definitely it! Thank you

Rolling Fondant

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
I'm making my stepson's bday cake at the end of the month and am going to attempt to use fondant, so I wanted to try to work with it first before I started his cake. I thought I would try this recipe as it had pretty good reviews. I don't know if I did something wrong but this just didn't work for me. It tasted pretty good, but it didn't seem to matter what I did, I could not work with it without it cracking and tearing. I tried adding a little water, more shortening, rolling out on corn starch, icing sugar, shortening.... I ended up running out and buying fondant which was WAY easier to work with. I was able to use this fondant for smaller cut out pieces, but there was no way it was going to work to cover a cake. Maybe someday I will try making fondant again, but in the meantime I think I'll stick to buying it. Most people I've seen don't eat it anyway, even the homemade stuff (which is really sweet), so I think for now I'll save the frustration and buy it.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
I would have given it 5 stars, but with all the rave reviews I was expecting to have my socks knocked off. However, it is still probably one of the best banana breads I have had. I made a double batch as I had quite a few bananas; 3 frozen and 3 over ripe. As others mentioned I did not slice them, but since the non-frozen ones were less "mushy" than the ones from the freezer I still ended up with some smaller chunks, which was nice. I skipped the nuts since no one in the family cares for them. Half the batch I made into mini muffins and the other half I made into a loaf. I scooped out about 1/2 cup of batter and mixed some cocoa powder in it, then dropped about 1/4 tsp of the choco mix into each mini muffin and took a tooth pick and swirled it. Turned out pretty good and a nice change. In the loaf I added chocolate chips, because what's banana bread without chocolate chips? My daughter told me the muffins were "AWESOME". Very moist and lots of flavour. I will make this one again.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
This is my 3rd batch of bread I have made in the past week, and I never made bread before that, and I think I like this one the best so far. When I went to buy the whole wheat flour, I wasn't sure if I needed WW BREAD flour, or just regular WW Flour. To be on the safe side I bought the WW bread flour. Once I got home and started to get all the ingredients together I realized that the WW bread flour was a mix of white and whole wheat. So after adding 5 cups of bread flour, I think my bread is more white than brown. Either way, it turned out fantastic and I ended up with 3 nice sized loaves. After reading the reviews I was expecting to only make 2, but there way way too much dough to make just 2. It turned out really moist with great flavour. I'm looking for a bread recipe as a replacement for store bought, and so far the ones I have tried have turned out well and taste great, but have not been able to hold up to sandwich quality without falling apart. I let my dough rise too long so it ended up a little 'holier', so I'm expecting it might not work well for sandwiches. But I am looking forward to trying this one again, with WW flour and less rising time.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
I just started making bread last weekend and this was the 2nd recipe I tried. I really liked the flavour of this bread and it reminds me a lot of the bread my grandma made. I asked my family and friends to tell me which one of the two different recipes they preferred, and no one could really answer that. However, a few did say they thought they preferred this one. I ate it with butter, toasted, in a sandwich and used it for a grilled cheese and in the end I 'think' I prefer the other recipe (Traditional White Bread from this site). The ONLY thing that tipped the scale, and only very slightly, was that it didn't seem to hold a sandwich together, grilled or otherwise; I found the sandwich fell apart, and no, I didn't slice the bread too thin. I still gave it 5 stars as I don't think it would be fair to give it less until I make both recipes a couple more times, just to compare them a bit more. Will definitely be keeping this one on hand.

Traditional White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
This was my 1st attempt at making bread and I will definitely be making this again. I have always been so intimidated at the idea of homemade bread, but this was super easy. The only I changed was the amount of salt as 1 Tbsp just seemed like it would be way too much, so I cut it back to 2 tsp.

Authentic Pad Thai

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
This was fantastic. I used shrimp instead of chicken, as I was trying to use up some leftovers. I couldn't find tamarind paste, so I was planning on winging it then I found some thai curry paste in my pantry. Turned out it had tamarind as a main ingredient as well as a few others so I used that. Hubby loved it and had 3 servings, but said it could be a little spicier. I loved it the way it was.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
I use this recipe all the time when I decorate sugar cookies. Very versitile. You can 'paint' it on with a paint brush or add more powdered sugar and pipe it out. I use a toothpick or kabob skewers to make small details or letters. I love how it dries hard and you dont have to worry about how to package them without pulling off all the icing.

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
These make the BEST sugar cookies. I gave up on my mother-in-laws recipe a couple years ago as it was nearly impossible to work with. I used the suggestions of others here and used butter, 3 cups of flour and baked at 375. Oh, and I didnt chill the dough as I forgot about that step and didnt have time. These are by far the best sugar cookies I have ever had. Nice and soft, just the way I like them. I get a lot of compliments on them as well. Great with the Sugar Cookie icing (icing sugar and corn syrup) found on this site. But just as good without.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
I'm not a huge bruschetta fan, but this one is excellent! I followed the recipe as it was, but omitted the mozzarella cheese. I made this for my boyfriend and he said it was the best bruschetta he's ever had.

Bacon Quiche Tarts

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
These are fantastic! They are becoming a staple for Christmas or Easter brunch. They travel well too, just wrap them in tinfoil and heat them up. I have done it over a BBQ and they were great. I think these would be good camping too.

Jumbo Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
Excellent! Aside from switching the cheerios to rice crispies (family preference) I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great. I will definitely be making them again. I may try adding a few different things next time; nuts, flax, coconut and maybe cinnamon. UPDATE: Just made these again and used rice crispie, all bran, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, chopped almonds and raisins and turned out fantastic.

Butter Beef

Excellent flavour, but it turned out really dry. Maybe I over cooked it, I am not sure. I will not be making it again.

Grammy Faith's Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
Well, in the end I think I made a completely different sauce, but it was still really good. I obviously didn't pay close attention to the recipe when I started making it. I accidentally put 1 cup of SOUR cream. I also put a squirt of prepared mustard in, mostly for color, and because of the comments here, I cut the flour in half. Mine was still a little runny, but probably because I used sour cream. In the end, it still came out very yummy. A lot spicier then I expected....
