Milk Chocolate Florentine Cookies

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
these are crisp, elegant and delicious. i am usually a dark chocolate girl, so i tried them both ways. in these, i actually preferred the milk chocolate. my first batch of cookies spread all into one huge cookie. i even have XL baking sheets and i could put no more than 8 per batch, so these were very time consuming. totally worth it though. :)

Italian Vegetarian Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
these are pretty good, and hearty for a vegetarian meal. i like them best made with short grain brown rice and brown lentils (cooked in the rice cooker.) i add dried onion and garlic and additional herbs. i also prefer to cook them with a bit less water (broth would be good, too), then the lentils were less mushy and needed less breadcrumbs to hold together. really good with a zesty marinara or puttanesca sauce and melted cheese, parmigiana style.

Simple Carnitas

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
i was skeptical about the oranges, but went with it. glad i did! i didn't cut up my roast, and halved the kosher salt and just put it in the crock pot all day. my family really enjoyed this for taco meat. i wasn't crazy about the orange flavor when turning the leftovers into bbq sandwiches, but my hubby thought it was great and the kiddos ate it up, so all in all great recipe. it's a keeper!

Espinacas con Garbanzos (Spinach with Garbanzo Beans)

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
i've made this a couple of times now, and as much as i love cumin, i feel it is a little too earthy and didn't work well for me in this dish. i must have squeezed the spinach too much in an effort to "drain well," as it was very dry. after tasting it, i added some lemon pepper and feta cheese and i liked it much more. i prefer using the whole onion, fresh lemon zest and a pinch of cayenne. a squeeze of fresh lemon at the end also really brightens this dish. great recipe to tweak to your tastes, and feel healthy doing it. :)

Baking Nana's Version of Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
great dough. soft and supple and very easy to work with. cooked up soft and fluffy, too. i used a half-sheet pan and made one large deep dish, rather than 4 small pizzas. just docked it, topped it, and baked for 25 minutes. delish! thanks, ba'nana.

Double Chocolate Brownie Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
rich and chocolaty! i used a fudge cake mix and fudge pudding mix. i think i might use butter instead of oil next time for a more brownie-like flavor. at the last minute i decided to portion into cupcakes, and got 24. my kids just devoured these. and even though i'm not a big fan of chocolate cake, these were moist and tasty little morsels. definitely will make them again.

Lemon Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
excellent recipe. i did sub lime juice (3T) and lime zest for limeade bars, but they still turned out great. my SIL commented how much she liked the buttery crust. i used softened butter, like nana says in her review. no edges though, just a flat base crust. when cooled, i also dusted them with a little powdered sugar like my mom does. it dresses them up a little, and was probably necessary with the extra juice i used. this was quick and easy to put together, and oh so yummy! thanks for sharing your recipe, baking nana.

Delicious and Easy Mock Risotto

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
wonderful way to use orzo, and it makes a ton. probably more like 6-8 servings. to make this taste more like a traditional risotto, i did add a couple of tablespoons of white wine at the beginning, and added a bit of butter and parmesan cheese at the end. i stirred it quite a few times throughout the cooking to release the pasta's starches and make it creamier, so i needed to add a bit more liquid. i think i used about 4c chicken stock. in the end, this tasted very much like risotto to me, just easier. a good base recipe, would be good with added veggies or herbs, too.

Cinnamon Griddle Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
great breakfast idea! i left out the corn syrup, as it seemed an easy way to reduce the sugar a bit. i used the other reviewers suggestion and added a touch more milk. the batter was still quite thick, so i used a big spoon to pour/spread this onto the griddle. i got 11 cakes. they cooked light and fluffy at medium (350F) heat. i had some leftover cream cheese frosting, which i thinned and drizzled over top. delish!

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
easy AND yummy granola bars. i liked the taste of sweetened condensed milk and butter, a nice change up from oil and honey. and the submitter was right, just use whichever mix-ins sound good! my first batch were cherry and chocolate, and i will try other combos in the future. i used parchment paper to line the bottom of the pan and they came out easily, and they cut easily while still warm. everyone loved these, great recipe!

Thin Mint Crackers

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
i had leftover chocolate after dipping candies, so i added some mint extract. i just had to try this. it would never have occurred to me to dip Ritz crackers in chocolate. YUM! thanks for the recipe!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
tasty and easy recipe. i had to use sour milk in place of buttermilk, which worked fine. since i usually put honey in my cornbread, i was tempted, but very glad i did not adjust the sweetness. it was just right as is. i melted the butter in glass bowl in the microwave and mixed the rest in as directed. baked up in about 30 minutes. very good with chili!

Molten Chocolate Cakes With Sugar-Coated Raspberries

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
pure chocolate bliss! i love how simple this recipe is to put together and wonderfully it turns out. it's all about the chocolate, so definitely use ghirardelli or something similar. i bake these in ramekins, turn out onto plates and serve w/ whipped cream and berries. they reheat well in the microwave, too.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
simple and delicious. i picked this as starter recipe for my 9yr old daughter and she needed very little help from me. i was concerned about a "fake" lemon flavor after reading the reviews, so we substituted the juice and zest of one small lemon and used a yellow cake mix. my husband thought they were "buttery". i think it was the yellow cake mix since i was tempted to but did not use butter. for my family the more subtle lemon flavor was perfect. did half as jam thumbprints and those were good, too. i think this is a great base recipe and will try other combos for sure.

Spanish Flan

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
i really enjoyed this flan recipe. i've found most flans to be too eggy for my taste, but this one is just right. i also appreciated that you don't cook the custard stovetop and then bake it too. i followed a reviewer's suggestion to combine the ingredients in a blender. then i divided it into ramekins for individual servings. didn't cover with foil. for creamy custards i definitely advise a water bath. i hope you enjoy it as much as i did!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
"grate recipe" ;) actually, grating the frozen butter worked well, faster than cutting in. i just held a frozen stick of regular (salted) butter in its waxed paper wrapper. certainly would be easiest in a food processor though. these scones are delish! i've made with craisins and orange zest, also dried blueberries and almond extract, and will probably try more flavors as it is a perfect dough recipe in my opinion. always have the ingredients on hand. got great reviews from my co-workers, too! oh and i brush tops with milk and sprinkle w/ raw or turbinado sugar. enjoy!
