The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
The oven temperature was too high. The edges of my flower petals browned too quickly. Next time I'll set the temp lower and bake longer. I found that kneading the dough for a bit made it less sticky and more elastic and easier to work with. I applied sugar cookie icing and my cookies were beautiful with the right amount of sweetness.

Napoleon's Banana Muffin

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
These muffins were ridiculously sweet. I even left off the streusel topping and it was still too sweet. But the banana rum flavor was delicious. I would make these again but I need to play with the amount of sugar. These would be great with some walnuts.

Apple Breakfast Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
The cloves was overpowering and ruined my loaf. Don't get me wrong, I love spice breads and my favorite cookies are gingerbread men, but because of the impact of the cloves I could hardly appreciate the delicate taste of the apples. I would say 1/8 and maybe up to 1/4 teaspoon. 1/2 was overkill.

Banana Rum Biscotti

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Whoa, this batter is super sticky. But flouring my hands helped quite a bit. I halved the recipe (made them into mini biscotti) and omitted the rum and they turned out great. My only complaint is that they got stale very quickly (less than 12 hours) and I wonder if they should have dried out in the oven a bit longer...?

Applesauce Doughnuts

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I got a new mini fryer for Christmas and thought this would be fun to try. I followed the recipe exactly, and what came out was nothing like what I know as doughnuts, rather they were fried spice bread holes. And I couldn't taste the apple sauce at all. Spice bread fresh from the oven actually tastes better than this fried version.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
great! I didn't have milk on hand, but 1 cup of warm water worked out fine. No honey either so I put in a total of 3 tblsp of brown sugar. And I doubled the cinnamon. Out came a lovely loaf, not too sweet. thank you!

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
Yum! I added 1 tsp of fresh rosemary from the garden and that was ALMOST too much. Next time maybe a 1/4 tsp less. I added a 1/4 cup of roughly chopped olives and out came a super savory loaf. Will definitely do this one again. thank you!

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
Too much molasses-- the flavor was overpowering and I generally love all things gingerbread. I get a strong molasses aftertaste. Next time I would put in much less and add more sugar instead. I followed other reviewers and was more generous with the spices. That was a good tip. I also cut out some butter, added a bit of oil and put in 1/2 cup applesauce (trying to trim the fat). What I got turned out to be a nice dense bread. Will def keep in my recipe box and tinker with it again.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
Theses are wonderful! I'm not patient enough to roll and cut so I chilled the dough for a bit, scooped teaspoonfuls, flattened and baked. I may cut down on the molasses next time-- I felt it was a bit strong. Definitely a keeper!!

Mom's Best Waffles

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
My first try making waffles, and these were bland. Nothing special about the taste at all. I did like the texture though-- crisp outside, soft inside. Not sure if it helped but I followed the suggestion of another review and let the batter rest. I also seperated the eggs and beat the whites real fine and then folded them into the rest of the mixture. I was careful with the milk too-- added just enough til it had a nice semi runny consistency-- it turned out to be 1.5 cups. On the hot iron I sprayed canola oil spray and I could hear the batter sizzle. Now how do I get the batter to taste better?

Cranberry Apple Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2005
Great! The batter seemed a bit dry so I used about 2 big tbsp of plain yogurt (had no juice or milk but this worked perfectly). Used 1/2 cup brown sugar and a tbsp or so of white sugar (all the sugar I had on hand). Came out moist and not too sweet. Definitely more cinnamon next time. Thanks!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2005
72 cookies sounded like a lot so I halved the recipe. The cookies turned out too soft. I used jello chocolate pudding and the dough had an odd bland flavor. Will not do this one again.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2004
My house smelled like a Cinnabon shop! Heaven! A good (and very easy) pie, but I found this to be too sweet (not as sweet as a Cinnabon, but still really sweet). I'd do it again with less sugar. --I added the cinnamon as others suggested (I can't imagine this pie without it!). --I also skimped on the apples and put in 3 Gala and 3 Granny Smith apples (it looked like a lot), but you really do need the 8 Granny Smith (baking them made them shrink). The tart green apples offset the sweetness of the caramel sauce so I'd stick with the Grannies. --Do mix 3/4 of the sauce with the apples before putting the rest on top. And be sure to put the pie plate on top of a pan because it will spill all over. --I used the Pillsbury refrigerated ready crust as others suggested but I found it thick and floury-- I ended up eating the filling and discarding the crust as I ate. --The caramel sauce was thick at first, but you need to keep it on very low heat to make it runny. When the sauce cools, it hardens. Next time I would love to try to throw in some other fruit like peaches or cranberries like someone else suggested. Good luck!
