Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2005
It is, as the others say...this is the BEST chocolate chip cookie! The only thing I would change is adding nuts and reducing the chocolate chips. I measured 1/4 cup of dough, for each cookie, and only got 15, not 18. For me, the search is over!!!

Spicy Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2005
OK! As a lot of the other "raters", I made a few changes: sliced almonds instead of pecan, 1/2 cup of oil, 1/4 cup sugar and since I didn't have dry mustard, I used a teaspoon of a wholegrain dijon mustard and I left the mushrooms out. It was great! I will definitely make this again!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
I made this recipe a little healthier and still found it to be the very best I have ever had! I replaced 1/2 cup of the oil with 1/2 cup plain lowfat yogurt (reduction of 885 calories!) and I used half whole wheat flour. It turned out so well that next time, I will try replacing half the oil with yogurt. A great recipe!

Cranberry Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
For Christmas Dinner, I made a chocolate cream pie, pumpkin pie, Grandma Opal's apple pie and this! My family is full of great bakers and we all agreed, this is the best dessert of all! I made it as a crisp, using a 9 x 13 pan, no bottom crust, and reduced the butter by half. No need to chop the cranberries. Great recipe!!!

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
Great recipe! I added walnuts to my portion and used half whole wheat flour. Next time I think I will cut the white sugar to 1/2 cup. We all loved it.

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
The best biscuits!!! I used half whole wheat flour and added 1/4 tsp salt. Let the cut biscuits sit for 10-15 minutes before baking and they will be VERY tall and light!

Carrie's Artichoke and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
Definitely not my favorite. If you really like artichoke hearts and a vinegary flavor, you will like this. If you don't, you won't like it.

Slow Cooker Maple Country Style Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
If you like very flavorful food, this is NOT the recipe for you. I had to add BBQ sauce to give this dish any flavor (Bull's Eye is a great sauce). Next time, I will just make this with the BBQ sauce.

Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2006
The best!! I come from a long line of bakers.. this is great! I used half whole wheat flour...incredible. To easily cut the dough, use dental floss. Slide it under the end, cross the dental floss at the top and pull. Perfect cuts every time! If you want more ooey-gooey, just add a little cream or whole milk (3-4 tablespoons) to the butter, brown sugar mixture in the pan.

Pesto Tuna Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
This was extremely good! I put this on bread that had whole cloves of garlic baked in it. I also added a clove of minced garlic to the recipe. I made my own pesto using the Pesto recipe from this sight. Trader Joe's is a great source for basil, either fresh or the whole plant. This tuna recipe is a new favorite!

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2006
Excellent cake! I didn't have blueberries, so only used plums. I mistakenly used baking soda instead of powder (I realized this when the cake was in the oven) and it still came out great. I am making two more right now (with baking powder this time!), but instead of baking them in the oven, I am going to try baking them on my gas bar b q. I've done it with several other dishes (roasted vegetables, roasted chicken, apple crisp, etc) with pretty good results! As it is 107 in the shade right now, no way am I turning on my oven!

Honey and Flaxseed Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
Sounds great! So where do you purchase liquid lecithin and whey powder? 'Raters' said they had to search for some ingredients...so where did they find them? I am only rating this because I must, or my review will not record. I really want to try this!!

French Cream Filling

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
Made as per the directions. Whipped cream is much better. Why bother with this?

Pesto

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
This is an excellent pesto. I make it using just enough olive oil (maybe 1/4 cup) so that it will blend in the blender. This produces a pesto 'paste'. I scoop it out with a 1/4 cup measure and put it in mounds on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Put that in the freezer; once frozen, simply pop them off and put all in a freezer zip-lock bag and you can have pesto quickly, whenever you like. (I don't use the parsley.) This is great in the sun-dried tomato, pesto, tuna salad recipe on this site.

Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Needed a coleslaw recipe to go along with bbq pork that was almost ready to serve. I omitted the onion, but other than that, made exactly as stated. Quite good! Not too sweet (and I DO NOT like too sweet food!). Not too much vinegar. Perfect balance of sweet and sour. Very quick to put together. Thanks for the great recipe, Denise!

Tex-Mex Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
Followed the recipe and it was still lacking something. Added some taco seasoning and it helped tremendously. This soup is FULL of turkey! Interesting use of turkey, but I probably won't make it again.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
Instead of all the different herbs, I used Spice Islands Tuscan Chicken spice blend. Any Italian spice/herb blend mix would work in this. Don't leave out the salt completely, or you will have no depth of flavor. I reduced the salt to 1 teaspoon. So that the spices and herbs blend together, grind them together with a mortar and pestle. Works great! My next batch will be using Spice Islands Pasta and Pizza spice/herb blend (and NO I do not work for SI, it's just what I happend to have on hand).

Potato Salad with Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
OK, but definitely not great. I think it would be a good idea to list the region of the US that each reviewer is from. People from the west coast, generally, prefer different food types, flavors, heaviness, etc, than those of many different regions. This recipe was quite vinegarry. If you like it, I do think it is a regional thing.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
I am only rating this 3 stars, because after tasting the dough, I wanted much more ginger flavor, so doubled the ginger and added about half a cup of minced crystalized ginger. Now THAT was a great cookie!
