Hot Cross Buns I

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
These were delicious and very easy to make. I used 3/4 cup of warm milk instead of the water and powdered milk. I didn't have currants or raisins so I just left those out. I used one envelope of active dry yeast which was slightly under 1 T. Still worked great.

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
I whipped the egg whites separately and folded them in at the end. I also added a bit more sugar. Very good!

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
Excellent! I scaled the recipe down to 4 servings, so I ended up making just 1/4 of the recipe. I had no problems whatsoever doing so. I followed the recipe except for using golden raisins instead of regular raisins and using pecans instead of walnuts. I made cupcakes and used a vanilla cinnamon buttercream frosting that I came up with at the moment. I wish I had written it down because it was fantastic. I know I used 1 stick of unsalted butter, about 1 1/2 c confectioner's sugar, about 1 teaspoon vanilla and quite a bit of cinnamon until it tasted the way I wanted it. They were just perfect!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
I cut all the ingredients in half (yes, I used half of an egg. It is possible) and ended up with 6 medium size scones. To my first batch I added lemon zest (the zest of an entire lemon), and to a second batch I made I added apricots and pecans. I topped both with a drizzle of sugar glaze. I used milk and confectioners sugar or lemon juice and confectioners sugar. I made both batches in my food processor and they were a breeze.

Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
I made these exactly as described. I liked the texture but it is definitely lacking flavor. I'd increase the amount of vanilla next time, to 1 teaspoon or 1 1/2 teaspoon and I'd also do as suggested by others and substitute some shortening with butter.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
Loved it! I only had 1# of ground turkey but proceeded with the recipe as is. It turned out great. Loved the flavor and the texture. I did add some ketchup and mustard to the glaze/topping because I like it that way. Baked for 60 minutes and couldn't be happier about it. Will definitely make again.

Royal Icing II

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
So easy and perfect. Keep thicker for piping edges and such and thin out with water (drops at a time) to " "pool". Awesome.

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
Fool proof. It was perfect! So easy and tastes better than any other fondant out there. I used it to decorate cookies. Doesn't get any easier than this.

Easy Valentine Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
This will be my new Go-To recipe for sugar cookies. It was perfect as is. I only used vanilla. Didn't have to refrigerate the dough. It was easy to work with and my son loved the cookies very much. I didn't make sandwiches out of them because the link to the frosting is broken anyways. I decorated some with royal icing and some with marshmallow fondant. Very good!

Cheesecake Pops

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
Very easy to do but I felt the flavor was not 100% what I'd call "superb". I did everything as directed and came out with more than 24 pops but I really didn't want that many so I disposed of some of them. So, they weren't good enough to keep all.

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
Very easy and delicious. I decided to try them out with white chocolate instead and it worked really well. It really doesn't get any easier than this. I like that I can get a good source of fiber in the haystacks rather than the traditionally used chow mein noodles.

Magic Mint Chocolate Bark

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
It can't possibly get any easier than this. I had a bag of Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips floating around and I didn't know what to do with it. I did an ingredient search and landed on this recipe. I didn't get the color effect because the Andes mints are a bit different than the Nestle morsels. However, it was absolutely delicious and super easy. I'll make these again and again.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
I used less olive oil and cooked the quinoa in chicken broth (fat free, low sodium) instead of water. It was very good!

Melt-in-Your-Mouth Pecan Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I didn't want mine to be so gooey as most people described. I don't like them to be overly sweet PLUS I wanted to avoid adding butter to something already so unhealthy as these things. I only used 1 can of crescent rolls and got 24 mini rolls out of it. I worked with 4 crescents at a time (so I got two logs out of one tube of crescents) I unrolled the dough and sprinkled it with brown sugar, cinnamon, and grounded pecans. I rolled as directed and sliced each roll into 12 slices and put them in a mini muffin pan ("greased' with cooking spray). I baked them about 12 minutes until done and then I glazed them with a mixture of maple syrup and confectioners sugar. Still sweet, but not as much AND it will save you some calories and fat.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
I usually always go with granny smith apples when doing something like this but all I had were honeycrisps and decided to give them a try. They were perfect!! I loved them and I loved the easy and taste of this recipe.

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
I love chana masala and the addition of potatoes is superb. It adds more substance to the dish. Because I didn't have (and do not like) condensed tomato soup, I added about 2/3 of a 15oz can of crushed tomatoes instead. I had left over coconut milk from another dish I had made so I used that instead of the milk. Loved it. Served with white rice, naan and butter chicken.

Broken Window Glass

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
If you like jello, this is great. I'm not a jello lover but I still enjoyed it. It was fun and easy to make. I really just wanted to make it because I think it looks so pretty :0)

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Having tried this recipe, I definitely would prefer to cook this dish stove top. The texture of the chicken after it has been slow cooked like this is not something I prefer. However, it was overall a good dish. I had to add some more spices because it was a tad bland for my taste. I'm not taking stars off because of that though because I didn't have the cardamon and did not add it. That might have something to do with it. I'll go with stove top next time.

Honey-Mustard Grilled Trout

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
I halved the sauce because I only made 2 fillets. I also had to cook this in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. It was excellent!! I'll make this one again.

Spinach with Pecans

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
Really tasty! Definitely add more spinach. They wilt and come down to almost nothing. I used almost a whole bag, less water and more pecans.
