Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
Every time I make these cookies, someone asks for the receipe! I have made a couple of adjustments --increase the espresso powder to a full tablespoon and use bittersweet chocolate chips. Also, sometimes I pulverise one packet of plain instant oatmeal and decrease the flour by 1/4 cup. Dried cranberries are also a delicious addition.

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
I have made this twice, using the receipe as a base. Both times I have omitted the carrots and celery -- simply because I didn't have them! Also, I didn't see the reason for the brown sugar, so I left that out as well. I made it over the weekend and added some chopped garlic, crimini mushrooms, steak sauce, and tomato sauce. Delicious!

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
There is only one thing to say about this recipe -- IT ROCKS! I agree with some of the other postings; if you want a richer flavor, it takes at least 3 tablespoons for a large mug. I am getting ready to make a second batch and I will be cutting the sugar back to 1.5 cups.

Aunt Dee Dee's Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
I only had one can of pie filling -- so instead of dividing the apples, I put all of the filling in the middle layer. I chopped the apples before spreading. The next time I make this, I will double the amount of the topping and glaze ... just to add a touch more sweetness.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
Don't let the dark spots scare you -- these are fantastic! I have made this recipe MANY times and as far as I am concerned, this is the best way to enjoy sprouts!

Minnesota Wild Rice Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
I made this last year at Christmas and my family was over the moon! To add another level of flavor, add approx. 1/2 cup fresh cranberries -- yum!

Baked Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
I have made this many, many times and it is always delicious! I omit the brandy and add approx. 1/2 teaspoon of grated orange peel. Also, I cover it while baking and I don't bother stirring.

Blueberry Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
I too, added 1/4 cup white sugar and 1 teaspoon on vanilla. I didn't have any trouble with the dough being too sticky -- I actually had to add a bit more cream. Then again, I made certain that the flour was closer to 2 1/4 cups. I brushed the tops with egg whites and sprinkled on vanilla sugar --absolutely divine!

Chocolate Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2005
Hands down one of the tastiest pound cake recipes I have ever made. I did make one slight adjustment -- I replaced 4 oz of butter with an equal amount of cream cheese. At the 60 minute point, the cake needed more time, so I turned the oven off and let it sit for 15 more minutes. Perfect!

Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2004
I have tried making scones in the past with little success; they always seem pretty bland. I added 1/2 cup dried cranberries and 1/4 teaspoon grated orange zest. Here is a great hint when working with dried cranberries (or raisins) -- add the craisins and orange zest to the beaten egg and let the mixture sit for 30 minutes before adding to the dry ingredients. This plumps the craisins and makes them really moist. After the scones had cooled for a few minutes, I topped them with a simple orange glaze. Very yummy indeed!

All Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2004
This has to be the simplest, easiest, most delicious apple butter recipe ever. I used a combination of granny smith and fuji apples, 1.5 cups of sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup maple syrup, and a couple shakes of allspice -- too yummy! After the apples had cooked overnight, I took my trusty potato masher to the mix -- no need to use an immersion blender as the larger bits make this unique. I will be making two more batches for Christmas gifts. Thanks, Terri -- great recipe!
