Dawn's Easy Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
I'm a pretty easy sell on most things. With food, I'm certainly not picky. But there was something about the taste of these cookies that was kinda meh to me. I cut down the oil to 1/3 c. and made the frosting for this recipe and I definitely wasn't crazy about it. I then made the cream cheese frosting from McCormick's Red Velvet Cupcakes recipe on this site which incorporates sour cream and that DEFINITELY amped it up a notch -- really nice tang at the end and sooo much tastier. After I finish off this batch I probably won't make again. **UPDATE** I am upgrading to a 5 after bringing these to a get together last night -- the icing for the Red Velvet Cupcake recipe definitely was a hit, and instead of sandwiching the cookies to make whoopie pies, I just put a thick layer of icing on top of a single cookie and it was delicious! Perhaps there was too much cookie for the icing to balance out the taste. This was just right.

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
Sooooo goood..... was trying to find a way to use some of the unsweetened cocoa powder I accidentally bought.. this recipe was perfect.. used 1/4 c butter and 1/4 c vegetable oil, and incorporated some semi-sweet chocolate chips (jumbo) into the batter... yummmmm.. so fudgey.. hey! i had to check the batter to make sure it was up to standard ;) .. baked for 18 minutes like another reviewer because I was afraid they would get dry.. soo moist and good.. will definitely use this recipe again and will have fun experimenting with add ons..

Brandied Pears

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2012
Sooo delicious and light!! I followed the recipe as stated, except I followed GotRecipe?'s suggestion of baking 25 mins, then adding walnut mixture and baking another 5... I also didn't make the whipped cream but substituted in vanilla ice cream instead... YUM! Next time I will try the whipped cream just to see what it tastes like... great recipe though! I polished off 2 in one setting and my roommate had one and she really liked it! :)

Chicken Puffs

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
Delicious!! Comfort food indeed :)) I pretty much followed it to a 't' except for the chicken breast part... I forgot to get chicken breasts at the store, but had drumsticks at home... baked the drumsticks (I know, added process) and then flaked the chicken into the cream cheese mixture and THEN baked the puffs w/ filler inside... still good!!

Garlic Bread Fantastique

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
This bread was unreal it was so good! My roommate was a little skeptical at the addition of mayonnaise but couldn't taste it in the final product. We didn't have sage but it still tasted great!! I selfishly took half a loaf as an accompaniment to my meals the next day. Awesome and easy! thanks!!

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Soooo good and soo easy!! I baked mine at 330 for between 6-8 mins (the drier kale was done at 6; the kale that wasn't completely dried off took 8 mins, probably could've gone for another min or two). The trick is to make sure your kale is absolutely DRY so that it crisps up nicely. I tried one batch with garlic salt (eh) and one batch with soy sauce (yumm!!). Will definitely make these again, thanks for the recipe!

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Wow! I just had this for lunch.. what an amazing flavor. Could really taste the curry and sweet relish, gave it such an interesting kick! Didn't have dried onion so used a little bit of onion powder instead. Next time I will probably just throw in some minced onion like others, and some celery too, maybe cut down a bit on the mayo. But seriously, just as I made it was really, really good!!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
I halved this recipe and got 10 cupcakes out of it. I also added an extra tsp cinnamon, some nutmeg and used 1/2 canola 1/2 applesauce (unsweetened). It turned out fantastic! Baked at 350 for 25 mins and they came out so nice and moist. I heeded the advice of others and made sure not to overbeat, that is key as I had never baked carrot cake before and was afraid my cupcakes would fall. The frosting included is delicious as well. I served them up to a friend on Christmas night and after a full meal of jalapeno poppers, chicken, potatoes and green beans, he scooped up 2 one right after the other eagerly! Wonderful recipe.

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
I followed the first review (Kitchen Kimberley) and put down a semi-sweet chocolate layer first, then the white chocolate peppermint layer. The offset spatula IS perfect for spreading -- a regular spatula just makes it messy. I whipped this up last-minute for a little get together and it came out perfectly. I did not add red coloring or crushed peppermint canes, it didn't need it. I love chocolate and peppermint! This is great!

All-Around Good Smoothie

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
I made this this morning and it was pretty good -- I used hemp protein powder and didn't add sugar which I think affected the taste a little bit. I'm not going to take any stars off for that though. I can see the health benefits in this and since I just bought a Ninja Master last night, threw all the ingredients in and it was super easy (and no, I am not a shill for Ninja). I know I am going to have a ton of fun making all different variations of this!

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I made these with carob powder instead of unsweetened cocoa because I can't handle the caffeine in chocolate. Also, unsweetened, organic creamy peanut butter from Trader Joe's and 1-1/2 c. sugar. They turned out great!! You can't even tell it's not chocolate and they're just a smidgen healthier to boot.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
These cookies are absolutely wonderful! I am eating one now as I write this review, almost one week later. They keep so well, but I have also been using the bread trick (tear off a piece of bread and stick in your cookie container and it will keep them soft). This was my first attempt ever at sugar cookies and this dough is perfect for rolling out if you do so at about 1/2" thick. I roll my dough between 2 pieces of saran wrap which makes it so much easier and less messy. I also used the Sugar Cookie Icing by JBS BOX on this site and it was the perfect complement. My pet peeve is hard sugar cookies and these are so unbelievably soft! This is my go-to recipe for sure!!

Creamy Dill Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2012
One of my favorite dips- so good with veggies, chicken, even on top of toasted rustic bread. I made one batch (w/ the suggested garlic powder addition), ate it all, then immediately went to the store a couple days later to get more dill to make again. It's that good.

Chocopeanutbanana Smoothie

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
I customized this to suit my needs but this was a great start! I used carob powder instead of choc syrup, frozen green bananas (great as a prebiotic) and added a tablespoon of flaxseed oil for an added boost of nutrition. I don't mind things that taste a little 'healthier' if you get my drift; I still found it quite delicious!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
This was my first attempt at baking ANYTHING from scratch and it truly turned out wonderful! I couldn't wait, as soon as it came out of the oven I had to "test" this masterpiece...I could not put my fork down! I also halved the recipe, using 4 granny smith apples in a 8"x8" pan. However, to make it a little healthier and perhaps easier on my hypoglycemia, I substituted organic palm sugar for the white sugar on top of the apples (lower on the GI and is similar to brown sugar in taste/texture) but used brown sugar for the topping and used white whole wheat flour. I also did not add water, sprinkled a little nutmeg on top of the apples and a little cinnamon on top of the crumb crust. Tester for Thanksgiving which I plan on actually contributing to this year! A true winner!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
Amazing!! I also used 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce but used 1/2 c. organic refined coconut oil (healthier than veg. oil but the refined version takes out the coconut taste so good for baking) and basically followed Lovemyfamily09's version but didn't include walnuts. Made one loaf and 6 muffins. The muffins took about 40 mins. The bread took 1 hr 30 I think because I only used one loaf tin and I filled it too high (pretty much to the top). I'm not sure, maybe I overmixed the dry and wet ingredients too. Anyway, still turned out very yummy!! My first attempt at a quick bread and made from scratch muffins. I will try the honey butter on this site (by SDELATORE) to go along with it.
