Grammie's Sweet Milk Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
I made these cookies at altitude (Denver) and therefore added a bit extra flour. They turned out perfect, but should be viewed as a base that should be modified to the baker's preference. I personally found them too sweet and would reduce sugar if I made them again. Perhaps someone could make them with less sugar, but then add sweet ingredients or top them with frosting. I also didn't exactly follow instructions and they turned out just fine. I threw all of the ingredients in the mixer and then dropped the batter onto the sheet. I love recipes that don't require exact steps to be followed and will still turn out well, so for this reason alone I would recommend this recipe. Just keep in mind that the author's "Grammie" probably didn't make it exactly and you may need to modify a bit to get exactly what you like best.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
These soft, moist pumpkin cookies looked and felt like "muffin tops" rather than cookies and we enjoyed making and eating them. I did use real pumpkin rather than canned and the recipe turned out just fine. My husband did not like the chocolate chips as he felt that they overwhelmed the pumpkin. I agree that it might be better without them, but would not be as popular with the kids.

Jam-filled Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
These muffins are very cake-like and sweet. I personally prefer a "healthier" style of muffin that tastes more like breakfast than dessert. That being said, my family absolutely loved them and ate them up quickly.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
A very easy recipe that needed just a little modification. Please keep in mind that I am at 5280 ft altitude, but after following directions, I had a crumbly mess that even my 3 year old said "uh-oh" to. I added two more eggs in a desperate attempt to do something with the crummy mess and that solved the problem quickly. Delicious cookies and a happy toddler.

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
This is a very simple to make alfredo sauce. It's probably not the best out there, but for the busy cook, it's great. I did add some pepper and sauteed spinach and served over cooked chicken. It made a great meal (with a side of pasta) but please note: This does not save well. The butter and cream will separate on leftovers, so you'll need to make just enough for one meal.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I didn't make the frosting on this recipe, so that's probably part of the reason why we didn't love these brownies. They were ok.. moist and chewy but not very chocolatey. I bet with the frosting, they would be better. I just personally don't like frosting on brownies and feel like any decent brownie shouldn't need it. Don't make these brownies unless you plan on adding frosting.

Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly and it had NO flavor. It was bland and needed lots of spice, veggies, or something. I noticed on the other reviews that some people add garlic or onions. Maybe that would salvage this dish, but I doubt it.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
I liked the color and texture, but as stated in other reviews, I thought it needed a bit more chocolate flavor. I will make it again but next time with chocolate chips instead of nuts. I bet that will bring it up a star.
