Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
I work at a small candy store in town so I used our own chocolate instead of the chips. The easiest way to make these cups though, is to use some sort of squeeze bottle, or maybe even a pastry bag with a big pipe on the end to fill the cups. First, line your cups with the paper. Form balls of the PB mixture by warming about a teaspoon of the dough in your hands and rolling it into a ball. Fill a squeeze bottle with chocolate, squeeze a bottom into all of the cups, place a peanut butter ball in the middle of the chocolate and then squeeze the remaining chocolate in around the sides and tops of the cups. You can whip these out so fast this way, and they look very professional...and they taste good too!

Cooky Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2006
These cookies are ridiculously addicting. They are so simple, but the taste and texture of them are amazing. I left out the nuts and coconut out of personal preference, but I really don't think they're worse off without them. The texture is somewhere between a pecan sandie and a good crumbly peanut butter cookie. While they don't have a greasy appearance or mouthfeel, once you pick one up you'll be looking for a napkin to wipe your fingers on. I halved the recipe and made the cookies small and got 55. I've already eaten an embarrassing amount of them, so I don't think I'll make them again until I have somewhere to take them so someone else can eat them too. Thanks!

Caramel Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2005
I made some modifications to this pie, and it turned out great. Instead of a double crust, I made a crumb topping out of cinnamon, brown sugar, flour and chopped pecans; I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup of white and about 2 or 3 tablespoons of brown, and I added half a jar of Smucker's ice cream topping caramel. The pie was perfect at 45 minutes in the oven, and it tasted SO GOOD. Half of it's gone already and it's still hot...will be a keeper.

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
I used about 1/4 t of baking soda and it was neither too much or little for the full recipe. It really did take away the bitterness and made a really nice sweet tea. I used the full 3/4 c of sugar and did not find it to be too sweet.

Blueberry Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
Because of the reviews of this being a bland bread, I used orange juice instead of the milk, added a teaspoon each of vanilla and cinnamon and added maybe 1/2 cup more blueberries. It definitely wasn't bland then, but rather moist and flavorful, with a good texture that was somewhere inbetween a bread and cake. The crust got really crunchy (which I liked) but I ended up baking it for nearly 90 minutes before it was done.

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Raisin

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
So basically these cookies are amazing and delicious. For those who want a definite banana flavor to these, make sure you use a brown, overripe banana and you'll get the nice taste of it in the cookies. I did make some modifications, and they still came out excellent. First I cut back on the white sguar by 1/4 cup, added 1 t cinnamon, used chunky PB and left out the raisins entirely. I baked these at 325 for about 18 minutes and they were just perfect. With my modifications there are 114 calories/cookie with almost 3 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber. Super tasty, will make again and again.

Spicy Pretzels

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
These are great! I used a bunch of mini pretzel balls that I'd bought in bulk for this recipe and they worked just as good as mini twists. I cut WAY down on the oil, probably only 1/6 of a cup that I drizzled over the pretzels that I had in a cake pan. I shook them till they were covered, sprinkled the spice mix (that I used Morton's Hot Salt instead of the cayenne in) over top of them and stuck them in the oven at 325 for probably 15 minutes, stirring a few times. These are definitely addicting.

Easy Mexican Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2005
This tasted really quite rich and chocolately, but I didn't like that the cinnamon and chili powder doesn't dissolve, so it sticks around at the top of the glass and makes it unpleasant to drink. I think I'll try this again, but strain it before I drink it.

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
These brownies could have been made from a mix. They had the flakey top layer that you get from a mix, the great chewy crust pieces, and an awesome deep dark fudgey chocolate flavor. I don't need to buy brownies from a box anymore. *edit* I wanted to try a PB/Chocolate brownie so I used half PB chips and half chocolate chips in this recipe. The verdict? If you want peanut butter chocolate brownies, marble some PB into the tops of this recipe using the full amount of chocolate chips.

No Bake Bumpy Peanut Butter Nuggets

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2006
These are so simple yet SO good. I used honey instead of the apple juice and liked that flavor combination quite a bit. I threw in 2 or 3 tablespoons of Grape Nuts to give an extra crunch and made 24 balls with my cookie scoop and stuck them in the freezer on wax paper. Take them out and eat them one at a time. They're more of a candy than a cookie but they are REALLY good.

Apple Spice Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2006
I needed to make a cake for my grandpa's birthday, and he happens to love spice cake so I thought I'd give this recipe a try. Instead of baking this in a tube pan, I baked it in a 9x13 pan for about 40 minutes. Instead of chopping the apples I grated them (leaving the skin on) to help the cake keep it's shape and not fall apart, and then frosted with a maple cream cheese frosting. The result was a super tasty, dense cake that was snapped up by everyone who was around.

Fountain-Style Vanilla Malt Shake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2005
I've been looking for a good way to make a malt milkshake and this was it. I blended everything except the soda water, and then stirred it in at the end so it stayed fizzy. This was perfect, with just the right amount of malt and sweetness.

Hot Chai Latte

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2005
This tasted pretty good. It was a little weak for my tastes though, so I doubled the amount of spices in it and added a pinch or so of cardamom for flavor. To have a more authentic tasting chai, sweeten this with honey. This is far cheaper than the drinks you can buy at coffee shops, and tastes nearly the same.

Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Shake

Reviewed: May 11, 2005
Mmm this was really really good. I didn't have any chocolate breakfast mix so I just added chocolate syrup and it tasted great. This was a little on the thin side, so I might add frozen bananas next time to make it thicker, and maybe add some malt powder to make it even richer. YUM:)

Coconut-Lime Sorbet

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2005
This was a very light, refreshing sorbet but it didn't taste a whole lot like coconut. I added a little bit of sugar just because I felt that it really needed some, and the lime flavor came out just right-not too sour or sweet.

Butter Icing for Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2005
This icing tastes great on my sugar cookies and hardens nicely. The best thing I've found to do with these is to replace the regular cream with flavored coffee cream. That simple change makes this absolutely de-vine:)

White-Hot Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2005
This was nice twist on regular hot chocolate. I didn't have any cayenne papper on hand so I substituted chili powder instead and it was still pretty good. You may want to strain it before you drink it if you don't like little bits of floating spices.

Chocolate Cream Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2007
I upped the chocolate to 2.5 ounces and told my dad that it was really rich..."Well who doesn't want rich pudding?" This was really good, though. Very creamy, rich and chocolately. I only used maybe a teaspoon of butter and it still had great flavor. The best chocolate pudding recipe so far.

Orange Cream Cookie Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
It's been a while since I've had GOOD cookies, but these definitely qualified as such. I changed the recipe a little bit...used 2 eggs, 2 cups of flour, 1/4 t salt and white chocolate chips, and these came out SO GOOD. The flavor is great, and if you're a cookie dough fiend, the dough is fantastic. I used my small Pampered Chef cookie scoop and got 75 two bite cookies out of this recipe. They look great and they taste awesome.

Chocolate Banana Shake

Reviewed: May 11, 2005
The name says chocolate, yet there isn't any in this. I made this according to what the recipe said and it was terrible. I added some chocolate syrup to try to save it, but even that didn't help. It was soo thin and the flavor of the banana was nonexistant, it just tasted like malted milk.
