Croissants

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2012
Perfect croissant, fresh from the oven is just beautiful, just like in a little French bakery. I made some au chocolat, that was hands down the best! Followed the 20min freeze/40min chill method, thinly sliced chilled butter with my knife, didn't smear, just pat it into the dough gently. Did it in 4-5 hours. Will roll out the rest of the dough tonight to rise slowly, and bake it first thing in the morning. Can just imagine the smell in the house early in the morning. Life is beautiful when you have a croissant with a hot latte, without even leaving the house! Thank you for sharing this beautiful recipe. I feel accomplished and fulfilled.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
Super easy, super success! We all loved it. It tasted so fresh and yummy from my own oven. Won't be buying any more store made ones anymore. Can make this anytime! If you don't want to make so many pitas, you can use leftover dough to make little dinner rolls. It's the same dough recipe. Or can add some sun-dried tomatoes and flaxseeds to make the rolls nice and flavorful. Cool recipe

Home Made Top Tarts!

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Awesome idea! I loved making it, very easy. We live in China, have hawthornberries in season right now. So I used my homemade hawthornberry jam inside, which is kind of sour & sweet, turned out beautifully! So easy to do. My daughter loves it. Great breakfast/snack item

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Awesome crust! Easy to do, and instantly ready! Very good texture and flavor, easy to roll out as well. I used it to make kids pop tart on this site, and it baked beautifully!

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
Easy and yummy! Super fast to make. I usually halve the sugar and oil, and they still turn out perfectly fantastic.

Autumn Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
This is a fantastic muffin. I used dry cranberries since I live in China, don't have the fresh ones, but they turned out fabolous. I love the combination of slightly sweet/sour apples with the sweet muffin, very nice autumny taste. I added a ton of cinnamon b/c I just love the cinnamon flavor. I halved the oil and sugar (subbed brown sugar instead), so they were slightly less fatty :). enjoy the fruits of the fall!

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
Very very good. I followed one reviewer's comment, used half butter and half shortening. Came out perfect. I also added 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar, turned them into cheddar biscuits. Just heavenly! I'm from the South, this is pretty close to those truck stop biscuits :)

Bagel and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
This is an easy to make recipe, great for brunch for a big group. It's especially a day saver b/c you prepare it the night before, so very little effort in the morning. It tastes great freshly hot from the oven. But it's a bit on the heavy side for our family, soooo much egg and milk. But then again, once in a while, for a big brunch group, it's an impressively easy dish to do. I added some cut up German sausage in addition to the bacon, gave it an additional dimension. Basically, it's a baked omelet. I skipped the parmesan, didn't really see the need for it. Was perfect with only cheddar in the mix.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
WOW, this is so easy and so good. I never had the patience to do it on the stove top to get it all nice and crispy. Now I can get my crispy bacon every time, with so little effort. I love this recipe! Thanks for sharing the secret :)

Play Dough Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
This is an amazing recipe! It rolls just like playdough, even better, because it doesn't leave little droplets all over the floor. My kids loved playing with this, they shaped all kinds of things with this dough. We made lollipops, sunflowers, hearts, little girl's head, mickey, just all kinds of fun. It's super easy to prepare, takes no time at all. I freeze the dough for 1 hr if I want to speed it up. But other than that, it's perfect for an afternoon of fun playing and eating. I made it for birthday parties as well, they were a great hit! Just can't rave enough about this recipe.

Mediterranean Black Olive Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
WOW, this is THE bread recipe that I will use from now on. This is fail-proof, and ABSOLUTELY the most delicious bread I've ever had. It's totally professional grade. That pan of steaming water in the oven is the ultimate trick. I love the crunchy crust and the soft inside, totally awesome. I used 2 cups white w/1 cup whole wheat. Didn't change anything else. Fresh olives are the best, tons more flavor than the jar olives. Will make this over and over again. I now feel like a professsional baker, truly! Thank you so much!

Easy Focaccia

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
These are easy to make, however, gets very dry very quickly. I used another recipe on this site, Josie's rosemary bread, and they were more moist and flavorful. However, this focaccia recipe is great for pizza dough, simple enough to make, adn good for one sitting. If you keep for more than 1 day, it gets very dry and crumbly.

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Did these, nothing too exciting to rave about. I've done my wings with soy sauce, honey & five spices, and they turn out better than these. These are too much trouble, and not enough results to show for it. The flour just didn't work for me, didn't turn out like I expected at all. Will stick to my normal wing recipe, which is easy and reliable.

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
These are easy to make, tastes great, and excellent for a quick dinner. My 2.5yr old daughter loves them. I added some cayenne pepper to the 2nd batch, and loved the spicy version as well. It's so good to have them oven baked instead of frying, feels much healthier, yet can indulge at the same time in some crispy chicken.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
I find these cookies a bit too dry and yet greasy, not the chewy kind that I was looking for. That being said, anything with chocolate chips inside tastes pretty good. I do like them, but will search for another choc chip cookie recipe.

Homemade Banana Pudding Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Simple and beautiful pie! Loved it, and so did everyone else. It's sooooo easy making this pudding, makes me wonder why people would buy desserts in a box... Thanks for sharing. This is a great recipe for leftover banannas, or just any time you need a yummy pie!

Beef and Irish Stout Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Did this stew for St. Patrick's day, my husband loved it! It was quite easy to do, just have to keep on stirring to avoid getting sticky on the bottom of the pan. Great success for 1st attempt. I didn't find Guiness, so used a German dark ale instead. Very good with my rosemary mashed potatoes

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Love this bread machine recipe. It's so easy to throw together, and it tastes great! It's full of flavor, and indeed has a very moist feel to it. I usually don't like breadmachine breads, but this one is sooo good, on the 1st day, and on the 3rd day... Will definitely make into our family staple!
