Classic Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
I halved the recipe because I only need a dozen rolls, and even so I managed to get 14 nice sized rolls. The dough really is wonderful, light, melts in your mouth like everyone says. For the filling, I also used brown sugar and probably 2 tbsp of cinnamon, plus I added raisins and pecans. I also added cream cheese to the frosting. These looked at tasted professional if I do say so myself! This is going to be my go to recipe for cinnamon rolls! Next time I will probably make double the frosting (or not half what is listed) because we like our rolls gooey and smothered in it...they were a little dry with the halved recipe.

Jamaican Beans and Rice Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
Here's a fail proof version: 2c uncooked rice,1 can kidney beans, 2 garlic cloves minced, 3 sliced green onions,1 tsp thyme,1 can coconut milk, 2 cups water, and a whole scotch bonnet. Bring it all to a boil for about 20 min., remove the whole pepper. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste. You could add some curry powder if you like it as well.

Banana Pudding III

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
This is the only way I make banana pudding...with REAL WHIPPING CREAM! It has the perfect amount of sweetness. The only thing I change is not to use lemon juice. You can briefly soak the banana slices in Sprite or 7-Up and it will keep them from turning brown, works as well if not better than lemon without giving any strong acidic flavor.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
Soooooo good! But I did also tweak a few things after I made it a couple times. I used balsamic instead of cider vinegar, and I cut out the sugar since balsamic is sweet. I also omitted the poppy seeds and I added fresh strawberries and some walnuts. I could eat the whole salad alone if I'm not careful! Thanks Jamie!

Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
Dissapointing, not like a cookie at all, but tastes like the cake mix...even the texture is too cakey. I won't make these again, miss the butter flavor of a traditional oatmeal cookie.

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
Not as good as I had hoped, looks like I'm the minority but I wasn't keen on the italian dressing. Just OK.

Microwave Bread and Butter Pickles

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
These were really easy and taste great,almost like the ones my mom used to make. I stored my in canning jars and simply turned the sealed jar upside down (immediately while the liquid is still really hot) and the lids sealed. I use this trick when making jam too. I would like the pickles a little crisper so next time I will try microwaving them only 5 minutes instead of 7.

Healthier Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
This recipe is a good starting point, but like others, I felt it needed to be jazzed up after reading comments about it being too bland or watery. I subbed chicken stock for the water (so 2 cans in total), and a can of Rotel tomatoes for the whole tomatoes. I also added 1/2 cup of uncooked rice, a can of rinsed black beans, and in place of cubanelles, used a small can of diced jalapenos. I put in 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts and shredded them easily 4 hours later. It was VERY flavorful and spicy! We topped it with grated cheddar, greek yogurt, and tortilla chips. My family came back for seconds and said it was better than the tortilla soup at Panera. I will definitely make this again!

Beer Batter for Fish

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This batter was just ok for me...definitely needs tweaking. It was too thick so I added more beer. The flavor was a bit flat, and even after browning well, the crust was too soft and lacked crunch.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
These should be called Blandberry Muffins. Really dissapointed..no flavor! Glad I only made half the recipe.

Best Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
These were really good...a little bit too salty for me but I loved the crunch. I only used about a 1/2 to 1 cup of oil though..not necessary to use a whole quart if you fry them in a skillet.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: May 1, 2002
Like everyone says, the flavor was great with these cookies...but I also found the dough to be too soft and only half of my cookies were edible, the others wouldn't cook through and some even spread all over. I consider myself a proficient baker so this was a dissapointment. If I gave them another shot, I would only use only 1/2 cup margarine, or add more flour.

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
I really wanted to like these...they sounded amazing. However I could not taste the maple AT ALL!! I used 6tbsp real maple syrup and the maple sugar combo, reduced the cinnamon hoping the maple would shine through...and couldn't taste maple. Really bummed. Otherwise the texture was good, I used the authors modified version of the recipe that she later posted. One other thing...real snickerdoodles have cream of tartar and it is missing from this recipe. These ended up being kind of bland for me. I might try again using maple extract.

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
I seriously do not understand how this recipe could have such high ratings. I just made it per instrctions and it was yucky. It was heavy and tasted like flour, never rose in cooking....and yes, my yeast was fresh. Bummer :(

Lemon Curd Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
I've made this recipe many times for different functions, and have several people who request it. Perfect for those of us who love that serious lemon taste. Thanks for a great recipe!

Spring Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
This is a delicious biscotti, goes especially well with chai tea. I left out the nuts and added extra cranberries and chopped crystalized ginger instead, and I used a Lindt white chocolate with coconut bar. I also used fiori di sicilia extract (which is an orange/vanilla extract, think creamsicle..from the Baker's catalog). I couldn't stop eating them...sooo good!

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2002
This is a fantastic recipe, the biscotti turned out beautifully and tasted equally as great!! I took them to a morning coffee group and everyone wanted the recipe...a winner! One note...I roughly chopped the hazelnuts before mixing so the logs would be easier to slice.

Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Very good cupcakes! I substituted butter for the shortening, otherwise made it according to recipe. I haven't decided to frost them yet, they are good plain. I just ate one warm from the oven and it was light and moist. Even though it's a cupcake, it still is similar in flavor to banana bread so hard to tell the difference other than it does seem lighter and fluffier. Still, a nice change! Thanks for the recipe!

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
This was very good with the tweaking the majority of people recommend. I also doubled the garlic and spices, added 1 tsp cumin, another 14oz can of tomatoes and 2 cups of chicken stock. I only had green french lentils on hand and would advise NOT to use them as they stay firm and never soften in soup like the brown or red lentils would-they are best for salads I think. However, the flavor was great and I'll try again with different lentils!
