Apple-Cran-Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 15, 2004
These cookies have just enough butter to keep them from tasting too 'healthy'. I followed the instructions exactly (except for the cardamom, which I didn't have). The taste is excellent, like those soft brekfast bars you can buy at the stores. They don't seem to spread at all though, so I flattened them slightly before baking to make them look more like cookies and less like haystacks. This one's definitely a keeper!

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
This is TO DIE FOR on the grill!! The only change I made was to use skinless chicken (honestly, it was better without it). This has become my favorite chicken recipe, hands down!

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2006
Thanks to everyone's comments, my first try at making this was a HUGE success. I added 1/4 tsp. of salt to the sugar, and heated the oil on medium-high heat before adding the other ingredients. I used my "detonator" popper (a version of the whirlypop) and didn't get a single burnt kernel. The only thing I might do next time is reduce the amount of oil a bit. Overall though, this is an awesome recipe!

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2006
This is the best quiche recipe I've ever tried! I followed the recipe exactly as written (although I think I ended up with more than 2 cups of ham once it was diced) and it still fit perfectly in two standard 9" pans. I did shape the crust a little taller than normal, which helped hold in the extra ham. I didn't have a sheet big enough for both pans so I just laid a sheet of heavy duty foil on the oven rack. Turns out I didn't need it though - it didn't spill over at all. Excellent recipe!

Chantilly Cake Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
I omitted the coconut and macadamias, and used it to frost mini chocolate cream puffs - it was just as good as the "cocoa puffs" from Liliha Bakery! Just make sure you use a big saucepan, because it bubbles and spits during the 12 minutes of stirring.

Marble Chiffon Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2004
This turned out beautifully moist. The only change I made was to exchange the 3/4 cup water with orange juice for a slightly more orangey flavor. If your cake isn't rising to the top of the pan, make sure your baking powder is fresh. This is a really impressive cake and a definite keeper!

Fairy Food

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2004
This was so much fun to make! It's just like a chemistry experiment, the way it foams and bubbles up when the soda is added. I lined my pan with quick-release foil instead of greasing, and just lifted the whole thing right out of the pan once it cooled. Next time I'll try it with brown sugar.

Almond Crunch

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2004
Wow! This turned out great... tender and crispy, not rock hard... very easy on the jaws. I used a 10x15 pan but there wasn't enough syrup to reach the ends of the pan. I was spreading it out so thin that I was afraid 2 cups of chocolate would overpower the candy, so I left it out. Maybe next time I'll try again with the chocolate, but start out with a double recipe.

Old Fashioned Paradise Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2003
I followed this recipe to a T, and it turned out perfect. Even the baking times were exactly right. After reading the other reviews, I used a 1/4 measuring cup to gradually spoon the pumpkin layer onto the cream cheese layer - none of it mixed, and I got three distinct layers that looked beautiful when cut. Excellent recipe!

Almond Maple Granola

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2003
Excellent granola!! I couldn't get it to squeeze into bigger clumps (I think I overdid the small ingredients, like wheat germ and sesame seeds) but the taste was wonderfully crunchy and just sweet enough. I mixed every 10-15 minutes and didn't notice any burning. Excellent with cold milk.

Hawaiian Millionaire Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2003
Simple to make, and it sets up beautifully. Make sure to add the full amount of lemon juice, otherwise it can be a little too sweet.

Ma Po Tofu

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2003
This dish is simple to make and is full of flavor. Almost no fat and very little meat are what authentic, everyday Chinese cooking is all about.

Rich Cocoa Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2003
This gets 5 starts because it turned out great, even after I messed up. I started out with a 3 qt pot, which turned out to be way too small once the boiling started. After pulling the pot off the fire several times to avoid boil-over, I ended up pouring it all into a 6 qt (the only other size I had) and reheating it to the boiling stage. My thermometer never went past 215F but I stopped cooking at the soft ball stage and it turned out fine. I had no idea what the fudge's "gloss" was supposed to look like, but I just beat for a couple of minutes once it seemed lukewarm (I'd ditched the thermometer by then) and poured it out. It looked awfully runny, but it set up beautifully and tastes fantastic - it's got a slightly sandy texture that just melts on the tongue. I'm definitely a fudge convert!

Cajun Style Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2003
Awesome spicy meatloaf! I couldn't find andouille here in the southwest, so I used chorizo instead. Also, I didn't care for the way it sagged and cracked in the pan, so the second time I packed everything into two loaf pans to cook. Perfect!

Creamy Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
This is a great recipe for fresh pumpkin. I pureed my baked pumpkin in the food processor, then let it sit overnight to drain some of the liquid out. The full recipe of filling fit perfectly in a 9.5" glass pyrex pie pan. It's got a really nice texture, although I like my pies a little sweeter and may add a touch of sugar the next time.

Apple Chiffon Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2002
Moist and delicious! I used an additional 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of the oil to cut back on calories, and the cake turned out excellent. This one will be going into my permanent recipe file!

Brandied Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2003
These were the hit of Thanksgiving dinner. It took a while for the glaze to reduce, but the end result was heavenly. The brandy added a great taste without being overpowering. This will be our Thanksgiving sweet potato recipe from now on!

Dawn's Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2003
Wow! This took almost no time at all and are definitely addictive! Watch the sugar mixture carefully, because mine reached the soft ball stage after just 3-4 minutes at medium-low (I turned the flame down because I was using a small 2qt pot). If you're not sure how to tell when it's done, check out www.exploratorium.edu/cooking/candy/sugar-stages.html. It has short videos of the different candy making stages and has been a lifesaver for me. These nuts are so crispy and delicious -- I'll bet pecans would be terrific too!

Rice Cereal Energy Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2004
This was really good - like a healthier version of rice krispies squares. I added some flax seed and left out the chocolate chips. I also replaced half the sugar with honey after reading reviews about the dryness. It turned out perfect and held together beautifully. I'll definitely make this again.

Tofu Jerky II

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2004
This turned out very flavorful, although I might cut down on the pepper a little the next time. I used my dehydrator instead of the oven, and it still took a fair amount of time to dry. I ended up leaving it drying overnight and by morning it was perfectly done and chewy. I'll be making this one regularly!
