Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
This was my first time making pea soup! I rated it four out of five stars because I did have to make a lot of changes to get it to our liking. Hubby and I like lots of spice, though, and we kept having to add more: about another tsp of pepper, plus cumin, coriander, bay leaf powder, smoked paprika, onion & garlic powder, and a bouillon cube. The ham bone I got was smoked, and I think that overpowered it a little - next time I'll try to find a plain ol' bone; I'd bet next time this will totally be five stars! Thanks for a great recipe!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
In a word - perfect! The root beer really imparted a nice sweet flavor, and was better (for my tastes) than using vinegar as the acid. The meat was so tender we had a hard time even removing it from the crock pot! I used homemade BBQ sauce, and this was the best pulled pork I've ever tasted. Thanks for the great, easy recipe!

Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
Wow, this was great! I used two chicken breast halves, and there was enough marinade and breadcrumb mixture to double-coat. The magic frying time for us was 8 minutes at 375. I added lots of spices - double the garlic! Those two breasts ended up making enough for about five people - too bad there's only two of us. I think next time I make it, I'll add even more spices; probably about a teaspoon of black pepper and about a half teaspoon of cayenne. Great recipe, and super easy!

Applesauce Cake IV

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Awesome! I only tweaked the amount of spices (I always add more cinnamon!). It's fabulous with cream cheese frosting. I made 12 cupcakes; they were baked perfectly in 30 minutes. Excellent - I'll definitely be making these again!

Strawberry Syrup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
I added more strawberries than the recipe called for (it's whatever came out of the yard!), and this was a huge hit at the pancake day at my office! With the extra berries, it wasn't too sweet at all - just right. We used what little remained for waffles and ice cream; it was a great addition to each!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
These were phemonemal! I got 22 good-sized cookies out of the recipe. I used grind-your-own-peanuts peanut butter, so it did not add any wxtra sugar or salt to the cookie; I added about an extra teaspoon of sugar to the cookie dough but didn't change the filling at all. I think it was perfect! Any sweeter and it would have been too much - it tasted just like a nutter butter! The not-so-smooth fresh ground peanuts didn't have any negative effects on the texture of the cookies at all. I will absolutely be making these again!

Sour Cream Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
This was a huge hit for Thanksgiving! It really wasn't as heavy as I expected, which was great. It did, however, take almost two hours to bake - next time I'm going to experiment with the temperature a bit. The batter seemed a bit overwhelming for my 10-cup bundt pan; perhaps making the bundt and a smaller loaf with the remainder would help the baking time. It didn't burn, though, despite the extra hour in the oven - wonderfully moist!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
This was, by far, the best pie crust I've tried. Even with my dutch apple pie overflowing, the crust didn't buckle, become soggy, or get chewy. I used a vegan shortening and it worked wonderfully. This will absolutely be my new standard crust.

Shrimp Tempura

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
Wonderful! The rice wine marinade really gave it an authentic flavor. I'll have to try this batter on veggies too; it was wonderfully light and crisp. A keeper for sure!

Crispy Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
These cookies are phenomenal. I added just a touch more ginger (I like it strong!) but otherwise didn't change a thing. These are by far the best gingersnaps I have made - this recipe is a keeper!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2004
I'm getting used to the oven in my new apartment, and i don't think it got as hot as it said - the cookies carmelized before they baked all the way! so, they turned out more like a cross between chocolate chip and lace cookies. but they still taste darn good. I'm going to try this recipe again, hopefully with a bit better luck!
