Zucchini Bites

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
These are fantastic little nutrient-packed snacks that are great for on the go. Most of their density is attributed to the vegetables (I subbed fresh basil and corn for the bacon), but they also pack a punch of protein and iron from the eggs as well as a modest amount of carbs from the flour (I subbed chickpea flour and baking powder for the self-rising flour). I also subbed spicy chili monterey jack for the parmesan. I ended up adding about an entire cup of flour to make them less quiche-like, although I'm sure they'd be great as is. Maybe not a great side for pasta, but definitely the ideal snack or breakfast/brunch item. These are a new staple for me, and they're so versatile you could substitute any vegetable or use any combination of ingredients! How about ground beef instead of bacon? Or mushrooms instead of the carrot? Mini broccoli florets instead of the zucchini? This is my new favourite recipe!!

White Texas Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
This is the most crumbly cake I've ever had to work with. When I lifted it out of the pan after it had cooled, it broke into dozens of pieces. Taste is good but there are more solid cake recipes out there.

Lemon Coconut Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
I made these for a group of 150 elderly folks tonight at the retirement home I work at. Using other's advice I upped the lemon juice quantity and it was nice and tart. Also I took other's advice and added the coconut just a few minutes prior to it being done, and I threw some frozen berries and almond slivers on top too. The result: buttery, mildly sweet crust, sweet tart lemon curd, and the irresistible taste of toasted coconut. In the case of my squares, the berries lended a juicy touch and you can't go wrong with toasted almonds. They turned out great and the residents LOVED them! My only complaint is that even though I was cooking for 120 people, I had to use the recipe multiplier to its maximum amount (300 servings), and then double that amount (600 servings!). I had just enough for all the residents with about 5 pieces leftover (125). So unless you want the bars to be wafer thin, make sure you at least double the recipe, if not triple it.

Monster Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
Recipe makes a pretty tasty cookie. However the monster cookies I remember as a child were called monster cookies because they were huge, about the size of your hand! These ones I doubled the recipe and followed it precisely, using a 2" scoop for portioning the cookies as instructed. The cookies came out slightly larger than a normal sized cookie, but by no means were "monstrous." Also I was supposed to get 144 cookies and I only got 115. I'm a baker at a retirement home and my residents sure would have liked to have more than one cookie each last night; unfortunately I went against my better judgement and trusted the recipe would yield as much as it says. Heads up for those who NEED to make A LOT of cookies!
