Reviewed: May 27, 2013
Really simple to make and delicious. I poured the entire thing over a chocolate bundt cake.

This was good. I think as good as whole wheat can get.

Basic Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
Pretty good. Basic, as the title says. I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup because I planned on serving honey butter with these (2-3 tablespoons of butter mixed with 1-2 teaspoons of honey). I also upped the amount of corn meal to 1 and 1/4 cups total. This is a good base recipe. You could omit the sugar and add cheddar and jalapenos. Or, you could substitute honey for the sugar. This recipe made about 30 mini-muffins. Baked at 12 minutes total. Also, next time I will butter the pan instead of using PAM. Butter gives the small muffins a better flavor in the end.

Miso Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Divine. Simple, tasty, so very easy. We found everything we needed at the local Japanese grocery store (but any ethic grocer would have it). As written, it's perfect, so try it first using this recipe to a T. Then, with that base, you can add seaweed, fresh minced ginger, etc.

Heather's Healthy Oatmeal Surprises

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
This is a REALLY good base recipe. I made changes of course, but definitely used this as the base. I halfed it - using just one full egg. Cut down the nutmeg and upped the cinnamon. Cut out the peanut butter and chocolate chips to make it more healthy. I also added pecan meal, flaxseed meal, and unsweetened shredded coconut... baked for 9 minutes. DELICIOUS. I tried to pack a lot of fiber in mine with the flax, pecan and coconut. You could probably cut the white sugar... I'm going to try that next time.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Oh man... this is a dough I will see in my nightmares. It was AWFUL to work with! I followed the recipe exactly and the dough was so crumbly. I couldn't roll this out, so I just flattened some in to circles and baked. They tasted okay, but I won't be using this recipe again. I don't know what happened.

Yummy! Very good. Next time I'll toast the chopped pecans first.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
These are just so good. Such an old PTA recipe to me. I remember my mom making these in the 80s. LOVE it. They're so rich though. I reduced the amount of peanut butter in the batter to 1/4 cup and it was still excellent. I put the unwrapped Reese's in the freezer for about 15 minutes... baked for 10 minutes (because on the first try, I baked for 8 minutes and they were still doughy on the bottom). I also used mini cupcake paper liners for my mini pans. This made 36 perfectly.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Yum. I used butter in place of margarine because it's what I had on hand. Next time I make this I'll be sure to use margarine.

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
This was just alright. The chicken had no color and was just kind of bland. I'd rather just stick to the taco packets and add a splash of tequila and red wine vinegar to that.

Chewy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
Dec 2009 update, I tried this will all margarine, against my better judgment. Bad idea. They spread sooo thin, I had to throw half of them out. I'm so mad at myself. Stick with all butter, or if you want to use margarine, make 1/2 of it shortening. YUM. I tested this recipe versus "Cracked Sugar Cookies I" from this site in a sugar cookie challenge. This recipe won. Everybody said it was the more 'traditional' sugar cookie, like you'd get at a bakery. I must say that I used all butter in place of margarine (still delicious), but next time I'll use the margarine.

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
I used this recipe versus the "Chewy Sugar Cookies" recipe in a sugar cookie challenge. The consensus was that "Chewy Sugar Cookie" won. However, this still tasted really good. This was a more stout thick cookie. It's also not that sweet... if I make these again, I'd just up the sugar another 1/4 cup.

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Nice way of making tilapia. I will play around with the sauce to make it a bit healthier though.

Overnight Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
This was pretty good for my first coffee cake. I had no nuts in the house so I left them out, but next time will definitely use them. I would've like a little denser cake, but it's a good base recipe.

Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
Yummy. Turned out kind of like what you'd get in the grocery store. Next time I may double some of the spices... the key to the delicious tasting grocery ones usually involve a lot of salt and seasonings :)

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
Pretty good. Came out a little better than just not using the flour. I used whole wheat and will probably throw together quick french toast like this from now on...

Butter Rich Spritz Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
This is it. I've been searching for a recipe that tastes exactly like my grandmother's butter cookies... I have fond memories of baking them with her when I was little. She died four years ago and every time I ask my mom for this recipe she said "Oh it's here, somewhere..." I went through most of the spritz/butter cookie recipes on this site and I knew for a fact my grandma did not use cream cheese in hers, so those were automatically thrown out. I tried one using regular granulated sugar, but it wasn't right... THIS one is right. The taste and texture is spot on. The only thing I did was increase the vanilla. For those who think this cookie has an after taste - I guess make sure you use high quality butter. This is one recipe where you shouldn't use 'generic' or cheaper butter, since the flavor is dominant.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
I really wanted to love this recipe, considering how many cute things you can make with it... but it was just not good to me. First off, the consistency of the cake is REALLY unappealing. My boyfriend said that it was the texture of a "mini donut hole drenched in milk"... whatever that means, basically - very mushy (and I didn't even use the entire container of frosting). I used Wilton candy melts in chocolate and vanilla... afterwards, the taste was just TOO sweet. I love confections, but this was just too much. After eating one, I needed to drink an entire glass of water because it was too sweet. It's a good idea, and the pictures are so cute, but to me, baking is about taste, texture and balance. This fell short :(

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
This was good... but not so great and delicious that I would make it again. It was just missing 'something'. I'll keep looking for the perfect chili recipe.
