Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
This batter is fantastic! If you're a chocoholic, go ahead and add the chips, but they just kind of ruin the "Fall" flavor for me personally (my husband LOVED the chips). Like always, I never measure out spices, I use a heaping tablespoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice in almost everything I bake! (I know that isn't the sign of a great baker, but it works for me :) I am not one to replace ingredients, but I did substitute 1/2 the oil with applesauce and it was perfect!!! I took one batch of batter and it made 12 mini muffins, 12 regular muffins and one 9x5 loaf. Watch the cook time with the muffins...regular size need barely a 1/2 hour and I would check the minis after 20 min. The loaf can take the full hour, but next time I'll cover it for the final 20 min to minimize the edges crisping up. The aroma that fills the house is unbeatable and the bread bakes up with a perfect crack in the middle and a gorgeous brown color too. Certainly a keeper!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
Great recipe....thank goodness I didn't decide to 1/2 it!!!!!!! I needed to make 25 tractor cutout cookies and thought for sure I could cut down, no way! I used the full recipe and barely made it to 30 cookies. My cookie cutter must be XL. Definitely need to chill the dough and keep lots of confectioners sugar on hand for rolling. Dough is de-lish, I just hope the 3-year-old whose b-day party they're for likes them. Icing tomorrow, we'll see :)

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
FROSTING review only! I used this frosting on Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes and people went absolutely crazy for it! I did add extra powdered sugar to make the icing thicker and easier to pipe. Delicious and looked great with some Pumpkin Pie Spice sprinkled on top.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
My husband will never say that any PB bars are better than his mom's...but these came close. I used non-chunky peanut butter and topped the finished product with chopped Reese's PB Cups...he loved 'em and so did everyone at work. Its a keeper.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
This cake is easy, impressive and most of all, delicious. I always drizzle the top with the Hard Chocolate Glaze and its ready to go! When there isn't time to make a cake completely from scratch, this is my go-to cake for sure!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
De-lish! This was our first time using Quinoa - so easy. I didn't follow this recipe because rice & beans is our go-to favorite dinner and I usually just make it from memory with our favorite flavors, but I have no doubt that this one would be great. The quinoa really takes the flavors od anything you cook it in. We're quickly making quinoa our total rice replacement!

Eggless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
I chose this recipe because I needed to make a cake for my egg-intolerant 1-year-old nephew's birthday. I did a test cake just to check the floavor and was very impressed. I halved the recipe for the test and when I didn't have enough oil, I made up the difference with Hershey's Syrup. Fearing it still wouldn't be chocolatey enough (several other reviews), I melted 1/4 cups of choc chips with a little butter and threw that into the mix. Fabulous...you would never know there aren't eggs. Can't wait to make this for my nephew next weekend!

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
These are great! Keep the batter really cold. I did these in toasted coconut, crushed walnuts, hot cocoa powder and dipped in white chocolate. They were fabulous.

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Wow, non-chocoholics need not apply. These will satisfy any chocolate craving out there...so decadent and rich. I also rolled these in powdered sugar before baking, but didn't like the result; they are such moist cookies, the sugar tends to seep in and yellow. I dusted them afterwards and they looked great. Next time I'll try to smoosh them a little before baking so they look less like rocks, but no matter the shape, the taste is spectacular! I think I'll try them as a brownie/bar cookie too. Thanks

Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
Really yummy! I love brown sugar with bananas, so I used 1 cup white and a 1/2 cup brown sugar. My buttermilk was expired, so I went with the regular milk/vinegar trick. I plan on using a cream cheese frosting and topping them with some toasted coconut! Thanks

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
Fantastic! I was a little nervous about these because ginger/molasses is not a universally liked flavor, but I was shocked at how well these went over at work. They were gone in 5 minutes! I too upped the flour to 2 1/2 cups, used real butter, substituted OJ for the water and used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar for the batter. Chill for at least 1/2 hour before rolling. Definitely flatten the balls with the bottom of a glass before baking. They're beautiful for presenting and a perfect Christmas cookie!

Mini Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
So yummy!!!! These were a huge hit at a dinner party. I also used 8 oz. of 1/3 less fat cream cheese (you can't taste the difference), and reduced the butter. The easiest way to get these little guys uniform is my favorite new discovery...zip-top pizza storage bags. They are triangular shaped, and make great pastry bags. I get mine at Xmas Tree Shops in packages of 10 for $1.99. I can't even tell you how many of these I have gone through over the past few months!!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
Delicious! I was taking orders for Xmas and while this was nowhere on the menu (and not exactly the flavors of Christmas in Connecticut), one of my coworkers was just dying for Key Lime Pie. I changed the crust and used ginger snaps instead, and hit a home run, topped with homemade whipped cream! This was his quote after one taste: 'Ok...the key lime pie is AMAZING! Julie and I both think it is the greatest pie we have ever eaten!!!! Your crust is so goooooood! I am so glad I convinced (slightly harassed) you to make it!!!!!' This recipe will be in regular rotation!

Holiday Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
So yummy and so easy! I also added a bottom layer of semi-sweet chocolate, it really amped up the presentation. The peppermint 'dust' that ends up flavoring the white chocolate is just perfect.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
These are wonderful, and so easy! My husband is not a raisin fan, but had a cranberry/orange scone at Starbucks and I just couldn't be out done by them! These were 10 times better. I used 1 C dried cranberries, the zest of an orange and pumpkin pie spice to taste (about 1 tsp.). They would be just as great with chocolate chips or plain old cinnamon sugar. To make them extra sweet, make a traditional powdered sugar glaze to drizzle on top once they cool. YUM! (Regarding the butter comments, I ALWAYS use Land O' Lakes salted butter no matter what a recipe calls for. If a recipe calls for salt in addition, I just omit it and I haven't gone wrong yet.)

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
Outstanding! Topped it with the Hard Chocolate Glaze recipe and people went nuts for it. The cake goes a long way too, you can only eat a super skinny slice because of the richness. I served it with fresh whipped cream and strawberries. This is the perfect Passover dessert!

Passover Apple Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
This came out really yummy! I followed other reviewers' suggestions of doubling the batter and I atually broke up the recipe into 2 cakes (one for Seder and one for my husband to try at home before I served it to the family)! I baked them in an 8 in. square pan and a 9 in. springform. I also topped both cakes with a brown sugar crumble to make them look a little prettier. The secret to eliminating the bland taste of the matzo is the seasoning. I rarely measure cinnamon and nutmeg out (I know, big sin), I just eyeball a tbs. or so of Pumpkin Pie Spice which I think has the best flavor. I also couldn't find matzo cake meal in any stores, so I just put the matzo meal in the food processor and buzzed it until the texture was just about flour-like. This one's headed for the Passover recipe file!
