Good Ol' Alabama Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
This is definitely SWEET tea! I am from Boston, but went to college in the South and became addicted to sweet tea while I was studying for exams. I will cut the sugar in half next time. If you like extra super sweet tea though, this recipe is for you!

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
My family enjoyed this recipie, but I did make a few modifications to the original: 1. I doubled the herbs- the amount called for did not adequately cover 4 lamb chops. 2. I poured olive oil over top of the herbs before letting the meat marinate. 3. Instead of cooking the chops in olive oil, I substituted coconut oil because the former is carcinogenic at high temperatures. 4. I followed the advice of another reciewer who suggested adding a pinch of flour to the sauce which makes it a bit thicker. 5. My chops did not come out as tender as I would have liked-- I'm not sure if this was due to how I cooked them or the chops themselves, but next time I will try this recipie in the oven instead of stove top. Thanks for the recipie! The shallots add a wonderful flavor!

Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
This recipie is a neat idea, but I found it to be too bland for my liking. Also, it took considerably longer than the instructions said it would because the dough kept sticking to my hands. I used slightly less than 2 cups flour and actually think I should have used more like 1 cup. I may try this again adding brown sugar and cinnamon to the gnocchi to add more flavor. One note to other cooks: make sure you put plenty of flour on your rolling pin AND on top of the dough before rolling it out. Otherwise the dough will stick all over everything.

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
As a graduate student on a budget, I am always on the lookout for delicious, simple, inexpensive recipes. These cookies fit the bill! They don't require a lot of fancy ingredients. If you are a regular cook or baker at all, chances are you already have everything you need in your cupboard. Although the recipe says that these cookies are supposed to be a holiday treat, they are great year round. I made them in the middle of September just for the hec of it. I needed a study break and wanted something sweet to go with a nice cup of tea as I am a big tea lover. I also plan to give a few cookies to a friend who is going through a hard time, so they make excellent gifts as well! Thank you for this terrific recipe! NOTE: I made the cookies WITHOUT the walnuts as I don't like nuts in general.

Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
These muffins are delicious and easy to make, but the recipe only makes enough for 9 muffins, not 12, so next time I will double the recipe. Also, the muffins fall apart very easily and the topping did not fully cook through. I suggest using paper liners in your muffin tins to make the muffins easier to remove. Not sure what to do about the topping.

Best Apple Crisp Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
This apple crisp is delicious, but a little too sweet for my taste. I think you could easily cut the sugar in half and it would still taste good.

Cranberry Streusel Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
This is a wonderful recipe. The brown sugar/streudal topping nicely complements the tartness of the cranberries. It is a little bitter for my liking, so I will add more sugar next time as other users have suggested; however, it's also delicious as is. I made this pie without walnuts because no one in my family likes them. Make sure you follow the measurements and cooking instructions to a "T." Unlike other recipes I have tried lately, the measurements for this one are right on- you will have just enough cranberry filling for one 9 inch pie. The oven temperature and cooking time were perfect too.

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
This cranberry sauce was a hit at my Thanksgiving table. Everyone was impressed and couldn't believe how good it was. It looks fancy, but couldn't be easier to make! I did find that the sauce needed to be refrigerated in order to thicken. Less orange juice is also an option. Personally, I like this proportion of sugar to cranberries. I don't suggest adding more sugar, but use less if you want to bring out more of the tartness of the cranberries. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!

Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
This is a good recipe. I followed other readers' suggestions and made some modifications as follows: 1. I used brown sugar instead of white sugar. 2. I added 2 teaspoons of vanilla. 3. I added 1/4 cup milk (in my case, almond milk because it's all I had on hand). 4. I also took a friend's advice and added nutmeg. The bread came out soft and fluffy. In my opinion, it wasn't sweet enough which could be because I used brown sugar and added nutmeg. If that is the case, I can't blame the original recipe since I made those adjustments myself. Next time, I will try following the recipe as is and compare results!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2014
I do a lot of baking and this is by far the best chocolate cake recipe I have come across. It's very easy to make- not much harder than using a mix from a box (but oh so much better)! I would give this more than 5 stars if I could. As other reviewers have said, do not be turned off by the thin batter. It's SUPPOSED to be that way. The water is what makes this cake so incredibly moist. For a frosting recipe, I took the advice of another reviewer who provided her grandmother's chocolate frosting recipe to go with this cake. It's review #13 on this page. I give the frosting 5 stars as well!
