Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2005
These didn't turn out for me. I think I made the cookies too big (even though I measured 1/4 cup per cookie). This resulted in the cookies having to take longer to bake, and therefore dried it out. The cookies came out hard as a rock. I will try these again though, but I will make them smaller.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
These were OK. I didn't like how drenched in butter they were, and you could hardly taste the cheese. I would keep searching for a better potato side dish.

German Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
These taste wonderful! It's well worth going through the trouble to hand grate all those potatoes. When frying, they do use quite a bit of oil, though. Thanks for a great change from regular pancakes!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
I LOVE these cookies! They always turn out perfect and they stay soft, unlike other cookies I "try" to make. My boyfriend tries to snatch them as soon as they're done baking. Thanks for the great recipe!

Maple Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
This turned out pretty well. My boyfriend and I couldn't get enough of it! The apples became really soft and mushy, like apple sauce. I only wish that there was more of that great crumble on top! I will make this again for sure!

Bou's Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
This was a great hit at my table! I kept dunking my finger in the pot while it simmered just to taste the sauce. My boyfriend said "make sure you give this recipe a good rating on that website!" I used the left over sauce when making homemade burgers. I just mixed it in with groud beef and onions. It was great! Thank you so much.

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
This was pretty good. I would have cut down on the garlic though, but that's just personal taste. It took a long time to prepare, and I did the shrimp seperate from the sauce and threw it in when the sauce was pretty much done.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
These were simply amazing! I really enjoy pumpkin pie, so I was excited to make these cookies. I'm really happy how they turned out. All three batches that I have made have all came out wonderful. I cut back on some butter and sugar. I also added some extra spice (especially cinnamon) as advised through other reviews. I also made the glaze, which was plentiful and a sweet touch to the cookies. Thank you for sharing!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2005
Wow!!! This was really great. I used a pork roast, and was hesitant to add the cream soup, because it was the cheapest brand. Regardless, this came out beautifully, and the huge bone in the middle of the roast just slipped right out. I added some garlic and onions to the gravy as it cooked for some extra flavour. Thanks for this recipe, I shall be using a great majority of my roasts for this from now on!

Laurie's Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2005
I couldn't agree with this being a "savory" recipe, if anything, it was really quite bland. The cream corn was pretty messy. All this was was ground beef, corn, and potatoes layer on one another. No real flavour except those three ingredients. Thanks -- but I'll keep looking.

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2005
Mmmmm! I was looking for a way to jazz up boring carrots and I certainly found it. I used regular carrots cut up into coins and it was fine. (Of course, baby carrots look much nicer and require no prep) :) I'll certainly be using this again!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
I won't make the same mistake with this recipe again - I'll make sure to double it! Wow, this was really tasty. I was afriad I would mess up the cream mixture, but it was so simple! I also added corn and carrots and added a lot of veggies than requested. I've made this soup twice now, once with my own stock (which was better) rather than the buillion. Thanks very much!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2005
These cookies were wonderful. They were heavenly soft right out the oven, and mine only needed 8 minutes. The first batch, I left in for 10 and they came out a bit crunchy. I cut back on 1/4 cup of sugar and added some coconut instead, but I think 1/2 of coconut would be better. Also, when I was mixing the batter, my wooden spoon snapped! Be prepared for a workout if you don't have an electric mixer.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2005
These cookies stayed soft and moist. I used only the egg yolks, as advised by the cookie advice column on this site to make sure the cookies didn't dry out. I used vanilla pudding mix, but I'm not sure what it was supposed to do for the cookies, because I couldn't taste it in the cookie afterwards. Regardless, these cookies live up to its name!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
Wonderful! I think I used a little more ground beef than the recipe called for because I had to use just a bit over a cup to get my mixture moist enough. The combinations of spices and condiments really are tasty! This is much better than canned sauce because you can play with the flavours yourself. I am going to try using some of the mixture between bread in my sandwich maker for lunch tomorrow!

I liked it better chilled. But, it was a bit boring.

Country Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
Just wonderful! I made this for brunch today and it was excellent. I didn't use as much bacon because I had only about 5 slices and I added about 1/4 cup chopped red pepper. I love how easy this was to make such an impressive looking meal. I ended up cutting it into six and ate two slices. My boyfriend ate three! I will add this to my recipe box and make sure to make it again.
