The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
My hand mixer broke the day I had a two hour window to make a triple batch of this recipe (for my 25 first grade students to decorate at our holiday party). So I threw the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla all at once into the food processor and blended it all until it was creamy--then I mixed in the dry ingredients by hand. I did this times 3 (my food processor doesn't have the capacity to handle a doubled recipe), and had the dough in the fridge and the kitchen cleaned up within an hour. I just finished baking the cookies, and they came out fine--the dough was easy to work with (and thank you fellow bakers for the tips on using parchment paper and peeling the extra dough off around the shapes!!!) and the cookies came out as well as any sugar cookies I've ever made. I didn't worry about the sweetness because my kids are going to decorate them with store-bought frosting and candies anyway. For quick and easy preparation, and great cookies at the end of it all--I give this one five stars.

Sweet Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
Obscenely delicious. After reading the other reviews I used 1 tablespoon water/1 tablespoon vanilla, and I used half white sugar and half brown sugar. I'm going to make several more batches of these so I can wrap them up to have on hand for Christmas gifts. So easy and so good--perfect combination!

Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
I'm really surprised at how well-reviewed this recipe is--I followed the recipe exactly except that I used fresh broccoli instead of frozen, and threw in an extra small potato, and I found that the texture of this soup is like gruel. I hate to waste food so I threw in 2 cups of milk with some flour to thicken it, and some garlic salt and let it simmer longer. I ate it with some cheese melted into it, and it was just okay. I won't make this again. If you're on a strict diet and trying to cut out as much fat as possible, the recipe as written might be good to try, but not otherwise.

Grilled Halibut with Cilantro Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
This recipe was good, fast, and easy. I don't eat a whole lot of fish because I find the flavor too overwhelming (except salmon). My husband thought the lime and cilantro really helped cover the fishy flavor. It was a good recipe, but I wasn't blown away by it.
