Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
This recipe is great! I wasn't looking for something super fancy, just simple peanut butter cookies and these were perfect. They look beautiful, melt in your mouth, and have crispy edges.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
These taste exactly like store bought cookies minus a tiny bit of salt. I'm so sad because I was looking forward to something spectacular and these didn't do it for me. Instead of being impressed with amazing homemade cookies, my friends asked where I bought them. I should have known... I generally avoid recipes that ask for one package of cake/pie/pudding/pancake mix. If you like the soft baked cookies from the grocery store, you'll love these. Five stars because the recipe itself is fine and the cookies came out pretty. They're just not for everyone I guess! Also, these stay soft no matter what, so forget trying to cook them longer for crispy edges. My last pan of these had black bottoms (I totally forgot about them at this point, the recipe makes a ton) and they were still soft when they cooled.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
If I were to make these again, I'd bake my own cake and cut WAY down on the sugar, then mix the frosting with that. They came out very pretty but were extremely sweet. I had a hard time forming the cake mix into balls, so I let it refrigerate overnight and let the balls freeze for two hours before coating them.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
I added more pumpkin and doubled the spices. It tasted great, but it came out really flat.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
Don't throw out this recipe just yet! I've made it in two separate ovens and in the first one, the cheesecake came out burned, cracked, and eggy after only 30 minutes. In the second oven, an electric oven with a consistant temperature, the cheesecake came out AWESOME! I highly recommend getting a thermometer for your oven if this recipe didn't work out, because it is so worth it when it comes out right!

Blueberry Coffee Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
I love blueberries, and this recipe uses so many! The batter is also subtle, so the blueberry taste really comes through. I halved the streusel and put it in the bundt pan first and did everything else according to the recipe. It came out awesome! This recipe is a MUST if you love blueberries!!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
I really liked these! The dough is not the same texture as cinnabon, but the icing is dead on. Cinnabon dough is a lot more light and fluffy. The dough in this recipe is a little more dense, but still gooey. Also, who ever says to double the icing is insane. The buns are sweet enough and now I have 2 cups of extra icing sitting in my refrigerator. Its SO sweet. I suggest following the recipe and then make another batch of icing if you want a heart attack later!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
This is my all time favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe! I usually cut down on the chocolate chips and add nuts. Mine always turn out thick and chewy and I follow the recipe exactly. I found they only turn out flat when I make them smaller than the recipe calls for.

San Francisco Sourdough Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2005
I live in the Bay area and this did not come out tasting like sourdough bread. This was a great white bread, but I was disappointed because I fed my starter over the course of two months just for this recipe. I ended up turning these into soup bowls by hollowing out the rounds and coating the inside with provolone cheese before adding the soup. I then heated the rounds in the oven for a few minutes and they came out great.

French Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
This came out exactly like the description. Now I know why the words "fluffy" and "delicious" are no where to be found on this recipe. You can get better french bread at the grocery store for less than the cost of one .25oz package of yeast.

Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2005
My roommate and I have probably gained 10 pounds since we found this recipe. The chicken is soo good. I don't bread mine twice, because the batter falls off of the chicken while frying for some reason. I also add a lot of cayenne pepper to the buttermilk mix, and the flour mix, which gives the tenders a little kick. You can also fry 1/4 - 1/2 in thick breast halves and make crispy chicken sandwiches. Overall this recipe is really easy and makes an awesome snack.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2005
The first time around, the peanut brittle caught fire in my microwave, set off the smoke alarm and made my apartment smell like burning hair after 4 minutes in the microwave. I had to halve the ingredients the second try and reduce the time in the microwave to 2 minutes. They taste great at first, but get chewy in the refrigerator. I'd suggest storing the leftovers in the freezer!

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2005
This turned out really good. It was a little too salty for me, so next time I might try using garlic in olive oil so saute the pork instead of butter and garlic powder. I also added a little bit of flour to thicken the sauce and more blue cheese. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!
