Essene Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
I make Essene bread, but my method is a bit different than this recipe. I like to use quart jars for the sprouting. I put 1 cup of wheat berries in each quart jar (I do about 10 jars). Fill jars with cool water, put in a place out of the sunlight and completely cover with a dark, damp towel. Let sit overnight. The next morning, I use a colander with a flat bottom, place it over a jar and tip it over the sink to drain it. Rinse and drain well, but gently. Cover completely with damp towel. Rinse and drain 3 X a day (gently so you don't break the sprouts). Keep towel damp. Don't let the sprouts see light at all. Quart jars will be full when sprouts are ready. Grind or process (in processor, sprouts will begin to form a ball, and don't overfill processor), leave plain, or add nuts, dried fruit, etc. Shape into loaves or spread out on cookie sheet. Bake @ 250 for about 4 hours. Loaves will be crusty on outside, moist on inside. Loaves will spring back when pressed with finger. If sprouts turn green they taste "grassy" and lose their sweetness. Exposure to light will make them green and you don't want that. Always keep covered with a damp, dark towel. If you spread onto a cookie sheet, cut into squares. I like to use the non-stick cookie sheet covers instead of corn meal, etc. Bread is best when aged about a day. Store in fridge, or freeze what you don't use right away. I hope this helps!

Pumpkin Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
I loved the way this cake turned out! I made a layer cake and it was very moist. I lightly beat the eggs before adding, and used 2 tsp. cinnamon. The frosting is very soft, which is fine for a sheet cake, but I had to chill it for a while to be able to frost my layer cake. I will definitely make this again and I might add a little more cinnamon or some nutmeg just because I like a little more spice.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
I'm sorry, but this recipe was just "okay" for me. I gave it three stars beause it tastes okay....but nothing exceptional. In fact, it was a little bland. I followed recipe exactly except I poured the liquid over the apples and then put the top crust on. I still prefer my usual method of making apple pie.

Turtle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
This recipe is awesome! I made two cakes because I had a daughter and a friend with birthdays. My friend requested a Turtle Cheesecake. I followed reviews and used oreo cookies for the crust, added mini choc chips to the batter, and softened the cream cheese to room temp before mixing. I baked in a water bath so the caramel wouldn't get hard; turned off oven at end of baking time and let cool in oven about 3 hours before chilling. Cheesecakes came out perfect! To garnish I melted milk choc chips in microwave, dipped my fingertips in and flung the chocolate across cakes in opposite directions, then I placed pecans around the edge. I posted a photo because it looked so pretty. My friend and family raved about how good it was! I will definitely make again.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
I searched allrecipes for a good chocolate chip cookie recipe and I found it. These are so melt-in-your-mouth good! I made a couple of minor changes. After the dough was mixed I thought it was a little too sticky so I added about 1/4 cup more flour. I baked a couple to try and they were really good, but I wanted more of a nutty taste so I added 1 or 1 1/2 teaspoons of black walnut extract. My husband loves coconut, so I also added about 1 cup of coconut. Next time I think I will try coconut pudding and coconut extract along with the coconut. I also want to try the chocolate pudding. This recipe is worth experimenting with! There are so many reviews for this recipe that no one will probably even see mine, but I had to submit a review anyway.

Pecan Sandies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
I made these cookies on Dec. 14, 2005 and I just have to say that they taste like the pecan sandies you buy in the store. Excellent! My husband has always loved pecan sandies, so I looked for the recipe on allrecipes and decided to try making them myself. This recipe is a keeper. My husband is allergic to soy and margarines have soy products so I used real butter. I have even substitued the pecans with walnuts and the taste is still excellent. Thank you for the recipe!
