Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
First time I've made these and they are certain to become a regular in my cookie baking rotation! They turned out quite cakey and fluffy which is exactly what I was hoping for. I only slightly changed the recipe by cutting back to 3/4 cup of white sugar, more zest, 3 tbsp. juice from the actual orange, no walnuts and I cut the cranberries to 1 cup and chopped them very fine in my 'magic bullet' so that my kids would like them more... don't think they'd like the big chunks of cranberry but with them chopped so fine they barely noticed them and they were a hit. They didn't spread very much so I found the best was to shape them into balls and then flatten them about half way down. I had no trouble with the amount of flour as listed. The glaze makes them very attractive but really isn't needed to add any flavour. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Monster Cookies VI

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
Read all the reviews and and was excited about these cookies (especially after tasting the delicious batter) but they just did not bake up well at all. I don't usually have any trouble with cookies but they were just flat and hard. Thought it was because I was making them too small but even after making them HUGE they still fell flat... so dissapointed because I really wanted them to turn out... not sure what I did wrong...? Followed the recipe exactly, put them in the fridge for a bit, used ice cream scoop size... 11 minutes was too little and they turned out doughy and would barely get off the pan but 12 minutes had them dark and hard and breaking apart!! Won't be making again since I don't want to waste the ingredients! :(

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
FINALLY! I've been looking for years for that perfect chocolate chip cookie and I've finally found it! I don't think I'll be using any other recipe from now on. The recipe is perfect just the way it is although I did use salted butter since that was all I had and they still were fantastic. I baked my first batch right away and then waited about 20 minutes for the dough to chill for the second batch just to comapre. As far as I was concerned, they baked up nicer and tasted better without being chilled. If you want great cookies just follow the recipe!

Sweet and Sour Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 16, 2005
I am NOT a meatloaf lover but my husband and brother-in-law are so I was looking for a recipe to make them since I never make meatloaf. Needless to say they loved it and I actually really enjoyed it myself. I used seasoning salt, less breadcrumbs and more onions as others recommended. Will definetly make again.

Carrots Au Gratin

Reviewed: May 16, 2005
My family enjoyed these carrots. I had no crackers so I used corn flakes and I used cheddar cheese since I don't particularly like the taste of processed cheese. My 3 year old and 14 month old liked them so that's always a good thing!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: May 16, 2005
Although I did enjoy these potatoes I wouldn't say that they're the best I've ever tasted. I ended up using parmesan instead of romano since that's all I had on hand and maybe that had an affect on the taste. My family and I do like a lot of garlic so that was okay but I'd have to agree with the others that they're a bit thick without any milk (which I ended up adding). I will make it again though but I'll get some romano for next time.
