Summer Potato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
Really delightful. I love a good potato salad, and this one hit the proverbial spot. I followed the recipe pretty exactly and have no complaints. Next time I think I'll follow another user's suggestion and try adding some lemon zest while reducing the lemon juice.

Soft Molasses Cookies V

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
Describing a cookie as "soft" made me think "chewy", but these aren't chewy. Rather they're light and fluffy, and quite thick, like something midway between a cookie and cake. That makes them different from your average cookie, and that's a good thing. People will know as soon as they bite into one of these that they're not eating some generic cookie. I used a full teaspoon of cinnamon rather than a half, but I still felt these could have used a little more spice. Maybe I'll add a little ground cloves next time. I also rolled the balls of dough in coarse sugar before baking. This adds a nice bit of crunch to the surface. I'm a big fan of the taste of molasses, so I'm sure I'll be making these (with my small adjustments) often in the future.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I'm feeling a little impatient with people who give a recipe 5 stars, saying it turned out great, and then go on to say that they changed just about EVERY single detail in the recipe. This recipe seems to have collected a lot of that type of "5 star" reviews. After looking through earlier comments, I did the following: added some allspice, added salt, used 1 more egg, used baking powder and baking soda instead of just baking soda, let the butter soften before use, halved the amount of white sugar and lined my cookie sheets with parchment paper. What I ended up with was some excellent cookies, but I DIDN'T USE THIS RECIPE, doggone it. Like many of those who have given this recipe 5 stars, I used a totally different recipe that was gleaned from previous user's comments and my own experience. The difference is I'm not going to give credit where it's not deserved.

Jan's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
One of my first attempts at baking a cake, and it came out great. Kudos to the person who suggested using a cup of coffee instead of water.

Scalloped Corn and Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
A really nice recipe, and very easy. I look forward to trying some variations such different cheeses, and making this more of a gratin by topping it with grated cheese and/or breadcrumbs. A dash of nutmeg might work well with this dish too.

Orange Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Delicious. I tried this recipe because the combination of rhubarb and orange sounded better and more interesting than the standard strawberry-rhubarb pie filling. I wasn't disappointed; the flavors work great together, and the golden raisins and pecans add to the rich mix of tastes and textures. This is a terrific pie!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
A great recipe that I've made several times and always enjoyed. Recently I decided to try America's Test Kitchen "All purpose cornbread" recipe, seduced by the promise of "more corn flavor" from adding blended corn kernels along with the cornmeal. Phooey on that. The ATK recipe was more work and didn't taste nearly as good as this one.
