Gingerbread Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
This was by far the best, not to mention the easiest, recipe of the cookies I made yesterday. These turned out great. Drizzling or dipping in white chocolate is a must.

Cornucopia

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
Great, easy, inexpensive, impressive addition to Thanksgiving table. Costs about $2/roll of breadsticks and only needed 3 including extras to make a bowl for dip. I didn't have large roll of foil, so just had to guess at measurements. Followed some suggestions not spraying foil and not using wash at ends of breadsticks - couldn't get foil out and a couple ends came apart, but no big deal. Used bed of kale underneath and stuck one leaf inside to hide foil. Guests liked it. Didn't bake entire time. Took about 15 minutes to put together and baked for about 30 minutes. Next time I will try to make it shorter and fatter. Will definitely make again next year.

Awesome cookies! Followed recipe except used combination of creamy and chunky peanut butter. I can't believe how good these are cold. Wow. Now I will make choc chip cookies with the egg yolks for the kids. These are mine!

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
Great! I used a little more than 4 cups flour, 3 bread flour and 1+ AP, a heaping 1/4 cup sugar. Used Kitchen Aid for mixing. Got too much flour on my counter making it difficult to roll, so had to get my hands wet. Got the hang of shaping by the last few. I cut 16 pieces, using a couple to roll cheese and/or ham in. Really good. The pieces were plenty big for the regular pretzels. I don't think you need the half cup of soda and 4 cups hot water, not all the soda dissolved and one cup of water in a shallow bowl with a couple Tbs water probably would have done it - hold the pretzel upside down holding the ends that meet the bottom so the pretzel stays together. I held it up for a few seconds to stretch it out a bit. My first few were a bit fat, but the last ones looked perfect. Will definitely make these again!

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
Yum yum yum! As suggested by someone else, I used only 1.5 sticks butter. Too good. I won't be able to let myself make these very often. Kids, hubby, friends love them.

Scrumptious Frosted Fudgy Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Very good. I cut in half using 2 eggs for an 8 x 8 pan, baked for about 28 minutes. I really like the chewy corners. I did not use frosting. They definitely don't need it. I may cut sugar next time for more dark chocolate taste. I will most likely use this recipe again, and may try the frosting.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
Very good, and I usually don't like raisins, but had a craving for cinn. raisin bread. This was my first time trying this kind of bread recipe. I used 6 cups white bread flour and 2 cups wheat bread flour, trying not to add too much more, although the dough was a bit sticky. I used my kitchen aid and kneaded until the dough came off the sides slightly and started up the hook, which wasn't far because there's so much dough. I sprinkled a little cinnamon in the dough, used golden raisins, and butter, not margarine, and brushed melted butter on the rolled out dough instead of milk. When it was time to transfer to a large bowl, I spread some oil around the bowl with my hands so I could better handle the dough, get it off the hook and out of the mixing bowl. I think I baked for about 35 minutes. I will definitely use this recipe again.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
Great recipe - only cut in half, didn't change a thing. Had a little batter left over. They were great out of the oven and great hours later without anything on them. I've been trying blueberry muffin recipes for a long time and this will be the one I use from now on.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
I want to say not to change anything because I loved this recipe, but I combined my two mixtures before pouring into slightly (5 minute) pre-baked bottom crust without egg white wash and baked at 400 degrees instead of 425. I had enough to put some mix in a couple little ramekins for kids with only top crust. I used this website's basic flaky pie crust - which I love. Will make again!

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
Love this recipe for fruit pies and chicken pot pie. Instead of a pastry blender someone suggested using a single butter knife and it works great. I am so happy to have found a recipe that makes me seem like a crust expert. Don't change anything!

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
Great last-minute dinner idea. I just plugged in chicken and tomatoes, and here was the perfect quick easy recipe. My husband loved it. I used dried basil instead of fresh. Thanks for a great go-to dinner.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
Very good. Not a crumbly dry cornbread at all. I used whole milk slightly warmed with fresh lemon juice for the buttermilk. Will definitely use this recipe again.

Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
I made the dressing for a similar salad - granny smith apples, glazed walnuts, red onion, chicken, but I forgot my blue cheese! I really liked the dressing. Made it in my food processor, cut the OJ to 1/4 cup, added some kosher salt. Will use it again.

Peanut Butter Pie I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
very good! I used a choc graham crust, but oreo would be better, I think. Pretty quick - put in freezer for just over an hour. Grated some unsweetened choc on top to make it look nice.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
Made allergen free and turned out great. Quite a few changes, of course, and cut in half - flax seed meal for egg, canola oil, 1 cup sorghum flour, 1/2 cup potato starch, and 2T corn flour, 1/2 t xanthan, added 1 t salt, 1 t baking powder, heavy shake cinnamon and 1 t espresso powder. Instead of fake sour cream, I added a couple tablespoons of coconut milk. Baked at 350, 8 mini loaf pan, 30 minutes.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Very good. Impressive without too much work. The coffee will run off the top of the cake layers because of the smooth finish, so trim to level or turn on top. I also put coffee in two layers and increased coffee strength. My mom loves it and my two picky kids love it.
