Baked Cheese Olives

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
I thought I would love these but they were way too salty for me. The combination of salty olives and cheddar was too much. Be sure you use unsalted butter if you try this recipe.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2007
My hot dog buns turned out great. I also did a first rise before cutting and shaping the dough. They came out fluffy, smooth, and pretty. Smelled so good that my dog stole one off the table even though she's usually so well behaved!

Bechamel Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
I use this often in lasagna. Instead of the cream and broth, I use 2 cups milk and a bouillon cube. Sometimes I'll also add in some grated emmental or parmesan cheese.

Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
I tried this twice because I wanted so badly for it to work, but unfortunately I didn't get good results. With the exception of the outer edges, the crust was soft and spongy, almost the consistency of a thick crepe! I only used one egg, pre-baked before adding the toppings, and let it bake for extra time on the second try to make sure it wasn't underdone. Still not good. My quest for a good yeast-free crust continues...

Black Bean Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2007
I wish I could give this more stars. I am now a black bean convert! I made as directed (but no cayenne), tasted, then added an extra Tbsp of tahini and an extra squeeze of lemon. Simple, tangy, delish. Thanks for the wonderful idea!

Scottley's Basic Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
Sorry, but I have to agree with some of the other reviewers -- this came out more like corn bread or a bland quickbread than a dessert cake. It was quite heavy and coarse, and not sweet at all. I won't be trying this again, but to anyone who wants to I would suggest adding a lot more sugar.

Michelle's Coconut Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2007
So so so good. This is one of my favorite dishes to make because it's incredibly easy and flavorful. I opt for red bell peppers instead of cauliflower (great color and complementary flavor), and I add 1-2 Tbsp of sugar, a good squeeze of lemon juice, and sometimes basil (for a Thai flair!). Don't worry if the sauce is thin -- it should be so that it can soak into the rice.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
Taste was good, but the consistency was dense and rubbery even though I made sure not to overmix. Perhaps too many bananas?

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
Wonderful. I used only brown sugar, cut the chocolate chips down to 1 cup, and added about a 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts. Refrigerated the dough before balling and baking, which helped avoid spreading. Rave reviews from all.

Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
I loved these! They're perfect for someone like me who doesn't have the patience for yeast. I don't have a muffin pan, so instead I lined the rolls up about 1cm apart in a glass baking pan and they turned out great. I just made sure to seal the loose end of the roll well so that they wouldn't unravel while baking. I removed them from the pan immediately upon taking them out of the oven so they wouldn't stick when the cinnamon filling hardens (as other reviewers noted). I skipped the currants and the icing -- I found them sweet enough without. These aren't your traditional doughy, fluffy cinnamon rolls made with yeast, and they get stale by the next day, but what can I say...only 15 mins prep (with practice!) and 15 mins in the oven. Really great way to satisfy my craving right away! I will be making them often, thanks for sharing!

Cheddar Puff Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
I like that this recipe is so easy and doesn't require biscuit mix. I've made them three times and tweaked the recipe to make them even better. I added salt, dried basil, baking soda, and used only one egg (the first batch came out more eggy than puffy!). Instead of shredding the cheddar, I finely diced it and that gave me little wonderful cheese bursts instead of it being more incorporated into the dough. They only needed 15 minutes in my oven, and I only managed to get 12 itty bitty biscuits out of this recipe. I'll double or triple it next time and drop them by tablespoonful.

Rice Krispies Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2007
I had high hopes for this cookie, but for some reason the rice krispies turned out hard and difficult to chew once these were baked! Otherwise, the taste was good. I'll stick to making oatmeal cookies or rice krispies treats, but the combo here just didn't work for me.

Chewy Walnut Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
I was skeptical because this is the first time I've tried making bars without butter, but they turned out nice and VERY chewy. Unfortunately my boyfriend didn't like them at all - he said they tasted like flour. And for some reason a hard layer of sugar formed on the bottom during baking. I love walnuts, so I enjoyed them anyway. If I make them again, I'll cut back on the baking soda because they rose quite a bit and I like a more dense bar. They weren't the best I've tasted, but I give them a thumbs up for ease of preparation and chewiness!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
I made the following changes, mainly because I can't easily get fresh ingredients: frozen shrimp, dried basil, no parsley, no lemon zest, chicken boullion cube + water instead of broth. I reduced the amount of pepper to less than a tsp because I don't eat spicy. Next time I will double the sauce because the pasta absorbed it all quickly. Delicious meal even with the adjustments. Key step for success: pour yourself a glass of the white wine to enjoy while cooking!

Grandmother's Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2006
This was delicious and exactly what I was looking for: rich, classic pound cake. I've made this cake twice in the last week. Once with a tsp of almond extract and once with a tsp of vanilla. I scaled it down to 15 servings to make one good sized loaf. Because I didn't have enough of the right ingredients on hand, I substituted half of the white sugar for brown sugar, and the unsalted butter for salted butter. Instead of using parchment paper I buttered and floured the loaf pan. Result was terrific with (or despite??) my modifications! Thanks!

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
Really yummy and soothing, but came out a little too oily for my taste. Next time I'll reduce the amount of olive oil and add more cabbage -- I like my soups nice and hearty. This was delicious with a grilled cheese sandwich! Thx for the recipe!

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
Excellent! I also substituted honey for the corn syrup and it turned out wonderfully. Easy to spread, and firmed up nicely on my hazelnut cake. Thanks!
