Chocolate Espresso Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
If you love rich chocolate, coffee, and a nice soft texture, this is a great cookie recipe! I have made it at least 10 times for my family and friends, and they always turn out tasting good. I always use the "microwave and glass bowl technique" to melt the chocolate chips and baking chocolate. The only problem I have had when baking these cookies is that sometimes they flatten out too much if the batter gets too close to room temperature. They seem to do much better when the batter is put in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before baking. Watch these closely--as soon as they begin cracking, take them out--they will look gooey, but after they cool, they will be rich and delicious! Thanks for this recipe--one of my favorites!

Basic Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
I was in a hurry and needed a quick, easy alternative to the recipe I usually make (that is Absolute Mexican Cornbread). This one was a snap to whip up and is a good basic recipe. I baked these for 15 minutes and they were just right, so be careful not to overcook. I did follow another reviewer's suggestion about adding another egg and some cheese. I am sure that this helped it immensely. Even with the cheese and a little extra cooking oil I added, they were still a tad on the dry side. I will make this recipe again, but I will add a little extra liquid or some sour cream. Thanks for sharing the recipe. It is good, but it would be even better with the extra egg and a little more oil, milk, or butter.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
This is a good basic chocolate chip cookie recipe. The texture is a good balance between "airy" and dense. I was impressed with how well they kept their chewiness (probably due to the 1 cup of brown sugar)...which leads me to my only critique of this recipe--it's almost sickeningly sweet. I think you could easily cut the sugar down and it would still be plenty sweet.

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
If you're looking for a good, easy, bakery-quality sugar cookie recipe, this is it! I've made lots of sugar cookie recipes in the past, and they have usually turned out either not sweet enough, or too bland, or too crunchy, or too flat, or like a biscuit not a cookie...the list goes on. But these, WOW! It'll be awhile before I try a different sugar cookie recipe. These were perfect...thick, but not "biscuit-y," chewy, but not gooey, and sweet with plenty of flavor. They are great as is--but you could add a little more vanilla or lemon flavoring if you want a little extra zing. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Mimi's Tomato Soup Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
This cake has a nice texture, and I really liked the spices, but be warned, if you have sensitive taste buds, you WILL taste the tomato soup. To me, it had a strong aftertaste and the tomato-y taste did not complement the other flavors very well.
