Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IX

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
It was OK, but definitely not fantastic. My guilty pleasure is eating oatmeal cookie dough. When I went to make some tonight, I realized I was out of butter, so I searched for a recipe I could use oil with. I stumbled upon this. The first problem was that the dough was so dense. I was right, it just wasn't good. I guess the butter coats the sugar molecules differently? So, I actually cooked them this time. Mine turned out a bit fluffy with a slight crunch, which I'm sure tons of people love, but for me, I wanted a nice chewy cookie- this wasn't it. My husband will like them, but I'm definitely going to save my guilty pleasure for when I actually have butter in the house next time.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
This was really good- I took the suggestion of lightly sauteing the onions and garlic first before adding broth and tomatoes. I also added 1oz of homemade pesto- it was perfect.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
This was a decent standard recipe- however, I felt it had too much baking powder and salt. I used salted butter since that's all I had on hand, so maybe that had something to do with it. Either way, they were a lot saltier than I would have liked, and I could taste the baking powder. I wouldn't mind making these again, but I will definitely tweak the baking powder and salt to probably half of what it calls for...maybe even quarter the salt. I did add a little extra milk to thin them out a little since I don't like giant pancakes, but this is just personal preference.

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
This was really good- I was skeptical since it IS cabbage soup, but it surprised me! We'll definitely make this again. I did add a can of garbanzo beans because I wanted some protein and I knew my 18month old would eat those. Didn't take away from the tastiness, but added said protein!

Radish Top Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
We made this last night and it was really good. We used whole milk instead of cream, but the consistency was still thick. I think next time, we'll add in some carrots and maybe some celery to add more flavor since it felt like it was missing something. Definitely a keeper though!
