Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
These are good but they are pretty much the same as Toll House cookies with less flour.

Chinese New Year Chocolate Candy

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
I grew up on these. I can remember my mom making them when we were kids. When kids were able to actually go trick or treating without any worries, my mom would give these out to the neighbor kids and they loved them! Now that im dating myself, BIG time, I will say that these are delicious and an old time favorite. I still make them at Halloween but only for family & friends, to keep up my mom's tradition!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
This is a really tasty soup. Chock full of vegies and beans. I followed the recipe but didn't have any zucchini, so I used kidney beans, corn, green beans, celery, and carrots and omitted the wine. I also added red pepper flake to suit my taste for spicy. It made a lot, which made my hubby happy, since he can now have it for lunch too! I will be making this quite often, come the winter months!

Cheesy Onion Focaccia

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
This focaccia bread is not only easy to make, but absolutely wonderful! I was very impressed how well it turned out. I followed the recipe exactly, but used freshly grated parmesan cheese and mozarella cheese, instead of cheddar. I served it with Jamie's Minestrone soup, from this site and it was SO good! My husband couldn't get enough!

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
This was pretty good, but mine came out of the bread machine tasting bitter. I couldn't figure it out. I used the exact ingredients it called for. After it sat a bit, it started tasting a little more sweet and lost some of the bitter flavor. But then it sank in the middle and was lopsided. I may try it again but bake it in the oven this time.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
These were quite tasty, but it was just banana bread in a muffin form. I think the topping was a little sweet too. Next time I will use less brown sugar. I also added my topping about 10 mins into cooking so it wouldn't melt right into the batter. They came out great and hubby liked them too. But we both agreed it was just a very sweet version of banana bread. Maybe more banana in the mix would cut some of the sweetness out.

Chicken Pot Pie VIII

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
YUM! This is a really good recipe for chicken pot pie. I used pre-made crusts and the filling was too much for one crust, so I had to make 2 individual pot pies. Which was okay with my husband. I also omitted the mushrooms and used peas instead. Everything else I followed exactly. Very good and Im sure I will be making this a lot, when it starts getting cold!

French Silk Chocolate Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
My sister's and I have been making this pie for years, especially when we wanted to fulfill a chocolate craving. Which was pretty much every week! I also use a pre-made crust, dollop with whipped cream and top with toasted almonds. Excellent!

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
Very tasty pie crust. Easy to make too. I left mine in the fridge overnight, took it out the next day and let it sit for 15 mins before I rolled it and put it in my pie dish. I made a blueberry crumb pie using this pie crust, and it was heavenly!

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
This was good and tasted just like a pumpkin pie, BUT the cooking time is WAY off. Mine cooked in about 2 1/2 hours. Perhaps it has to do with different slow cookers? All in all, really good and a keeper recipe for the holiday months. But watch the cooking time, otherwise it will burn.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
This recipe is amazing! I can't believe I even wasted my time buying boxed pudding mix when this recipe was right here, all along. I used real Dutch chocolate and it came out excellent and very tasty! What an easy recipe for a delicious dessert made in no time! I shared this with my choco-holic sister and she was amazed at how good it was!

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
I had a bag full of fresh apples from our apple tree. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. I took the advice from other's and doubled the topping. I also made the mistake of not tasting the apples before adding the sugar, because boy! was it sweet! I also forgot to up the amount of flour, so it was a bit watery. All in all, came out really good, even despite my errors. But it was very sweet. Next time I will add more flour to the apple mixture and use less sugar. It's a keeper tho!

Pie Crust Treats

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
My mom used to make these all the time when she made a pie. My siblings and I used to love these! It was a special treat for us. I am so glad I found a recipe that is just like the ones she used to make.

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
This pie was pretty good but not sensational. I LOVE coconut cream pie but was a bit dissapointed in this one. I made it as written with the exception of using just a bit more coconut. It had a great flavor but just didn't WOW! me. **UPDATE** This pie was SOOO GOOD the next day?! I have NO idea why it tasted better the day after, but it was excellent. So despite my previous review, this pie is really good!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
I have never made pecan pie, because neither I nor my husband are big fans. I decided to make one tho for my sister-in-law's birthday, it being her favorite dessert. I picked this recipe based on reviews and the fact it doesn't use corn syrup. It came out wonderful, according to my sis-in-law, the pecan pie expert. I had a piece as well as my husband and we both loved it! I will be making this pie more and more and for the holidays! It's easy & delicious!

Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2008
I marinated mine overnight. I did reduce the salt just because I don't care for my things too salty. Glad I did because even with 1/2 the salt, they were still a tad overpowering. Instead of hot sauce I used a little cayenne pepper. Also used hot curry powder and lime instead of lemon. They came out pretty good. Next time I will reduce the salt even more. I grilled them on the BBQ and served with sweet chili sauce and a Thai peanut sauce and some rice.

Mom's Rum Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
This is a great & tasty rum cake recipe. BUT it isn't an original! This is the EXACT same recipe that's on the back of the Bacardi rum bottle and in their cookbook. It's been around for years! And I have been making it for years. So this is basically Bacardi's rum cake recipe with another name attached!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
These are good but they are the same recipe that's on the back of the Quaker oats box. With more butter/margarine and added cloves. I think the recipe on the back of the Quaker box, is better. Sorry
