Cinnamon Swirl Orange Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Very nice bread. I like the hint of orange, although I'd like a bit more, so I'd probably add more zest next time. I did not, however, do the glaze, so that could be the difference. I used margarine to spread on the roll, then sprinkled instead of doing water. This turned out to be a nice, orangey hinted cinnamon loaf that tasted good without anything, although was very nice with honey and margarine. Thanks for the recipe!

Basic Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
This cookie is tasty, but holy muscles! you get a work out with this dough! I added more liquid for it to come together, but it was still really difficult to roll out. I played around with it then decided enough was enough and my exercise was over for the day. I froze the rest for pie crust or another cookie exercise day. This bakes up very nice in the oven and you can end up with crunchy cookies if you bake longer or have a thinner dough (yeah, mine wasn't so thin) or soft if you have thick dough and cook a bit less. They are full of ginger flavor, so if you like that, odds are you'll like this cookie. Thanks for the recipe!

Cardamom Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
This is a very lovely recipe. I added more liquid, as suggested. Instead of water and milk I just put in a cup of milk for the liquid and that mixed up perfectly fine. I refrained from tweaking this one otherwise, although I was tempted. This is a nice, basic bread with a beautiful flavor of cardamom throughout. I took this to a holiday party and completely forgot to bring any jam or anything to go with it and it was almost completely gone before the night was over; coworkers took the rest home. I braided it, then put it in a loaf pan to make it more festive and it baked beautifully. I baked at 375 for 40 minutes for a perfect loaf. Thanks for the recipe!

Eggless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
Easy, basic peanut butter cookies. they really spread, so bear that in mind, and if you don't like flat, thin cookies you won't like these. I thought they were good and tasted great. Thanks for the recipe!

Dilly Onion Braid

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
I'm not so sure about this bread. It bakes up very prettily, but does not rise much, and it seems somewhat rubbery, so I think I'll try others instead. It is fun rolling it though and I did end up with a couple of pretty braids. Thanks for the recipe!

Orange Fluff II

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
Hmm. I've never had anything similar, so I have nothing to compare it to, but we were not a fan of the cream cheese topping--it was kind of rubbery when all was said and done. We ended up taking it off the top. The jello itself was good--I didn't have pineapple so left it out and added a bit of water. I didn't have two boxes of orange jello, so hubs suggested raspberry and orange. That didn't work so well, however, so I wouldn't suggest that. Barring that, though, we liked the jello so would try that again, just leaving the topping off. Thanks for the recipe!

Chai Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
These turned out well enough, and I loved how they smelled of chai, but didn't think the chai flavor came out very well. Perhaps I'm being too picky, though. Hubs thought they were okay. They were easy and made a lot of cookies, so that is good since I want them for my Christmas cookie tins. Thanks for the recipe!

Cranberry Lemon Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Very cute little cookies. I decided not to do the lemon filling and make sandwich cookies for two reasons. First, these are really sweet and I just didn't want to add more sugar to the mix. Secondly, I'm freezing these for my cookie tins and while it might be fine, I'm worried about weeping or other changes to the filling that would be a problem. I may try the filling another day. These are really easy cookies, which is good, bc this recipe makes a lot! Thanks for the recipe!

Mojo French Fries

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
I love these kind of fries--reminds me of home--but they are such a pain, I rarely make them. These are very tasty, but yeah, still a bit of a pain. I did these in batches and played around with the oil part to find out what worked best. I tried spraying with the spray oil (you really do have to coat) and drizzling with oil. these really need to be completely covered in oil, so what seems to work best for me is drizzling, but then flipping and moving around the oil until completely covered. A pain, but better than frying and turns out delicious. I did double the spices and use seasoned salt; glad I did. thanks for the recipe!

Angie's Perfect Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Nice rolls. Easy, and makes a lot. I made larger rolls, as I usually do, and tried a technique for baking I found on the Bread in Five website: using the crock pot and cooking for about 1 hour and 20 mins (I added time to the original instructions bc it didn't seem enough), then broiled for a few minutes to brown. Very good! Thanks for the recipe!

Swedish Angel Crisps

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
So, I didn't use the nuts which probably just made them into regular sugar cookies, but sometimes I feel like a nut and sometimes I don't . . . seriously, I was just being lazy at the time. I often am. But anyway, these do bake up a tad crisp and they crinkle. I love it when cookies do that! I have no idea why, but I do. I think they are adorable, and you could roll them in any kind of sugar. I have several containers of random colored sugar I bought last year for some project, so I played around with the sugar colors. They baked up readily for me in 10 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!

Cinnabun Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
This is a rather difficult recipe, I agree, but if you play around with it and are an experienced baker it will probably work. I refrigerated the dough overnight, then floured the heck out of of my board to roll it out. This cinnamon mixture is odd; I think I overheated it and it was too runny with my first batch but with the second it was hardening and was easier, so you'd almost want to heat it up, then let it sit and roll out the dough. I kept the rolls in the freezer until I was ready to use them, and I'm glad I did. They were rather soft even after being frozen for a few days. I cut it all with a knife (I've never been good at the floss method although I think it's a great idea) and cut them rather thin the first time. That made for a very crisp cookie, so I made them thicker and although they were crisp on the outside, they were soft on the inside. The thicker ones needed about 12 minutes in my oven. I didn't do the dollop thing; one, I don't understand how it would work and two, that seems rather messy. I'm a messy enough baker as it is. I don't need more opportunities to make a mess. If you like sugary treats, I'd add a glaze but these were sweet enough as is for me. Thanks for the recipe!

Classic and Simple Meat Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Very basic, and very nice. I didn't have cottage cheese so I subbed a little bit of plain greek yogurt instead. I didn't make as much of the cheese mixture as a result; I didn't want it to be too out of the ordinary. I used homemade lasagna noodles; since this is our first attempt at pasta, and they were thick, I added a cup of water and baked for twice as long. This turned out very well. Very delicious, basic lasagna. Satisfied hubs' craving for it. Thanks for the recipe!

Spring Cleaning Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Nice, hearty cookies. Very delicious! I followed the recipe as is, and although I froze most of them for my cookie platters, I thought these were flavorful, very hearty, and not too sweet. Very good. Thanks for the recipe!

Dill Pickle Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Pretty good meatloaf. It is a too liquidy if you just use the amount of bread called for; I used dried breadcrumbs, and just dumped and mixed until I got a less liquid consistency. Hubs commented this tasted like hamburger and we discussed how some of the reviews stated that this meatloaf is reminiscent of a Big Mac. He agreed--but you'd probably need to put this on bread and add your toppings to get it to really taste like that. I doubled the sauce topping and used dill pickle juice instead of water to thin it. Turned out well. Ate with green beans and bread for a hearty lunch. Thanks for the recipe!

Lemon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Pretty good cake! I didn't think this tasted chemically at all--maybe it's just the type of lemon lime pop you use? I used Sprite and added in some lemon extract and zest. Glad I did, as it seems to have made it more lemony, and it's a pretty sweet cake. I thought about frosting or glaze but left it off; it's pretty good even without it. Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookie Logs

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Well, apparently I made these rather large, as I had to bake them for 20 minutes. And they didnt' fall apart, except one when I was a tad enthusiastic with the chocolate. But, they worked well enough so perhaps next time I'll roll out the dough then cut into pieces--that might work better for me. Still, very nice cookies. I love shortbread but am not a fan of chocolate so much--I think, however, they are a good addition to my cookie tins. Hubs enjoyed them. Thanks for the recipe.

Spumoni Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Not bad. A little too chocolatey for me--the pistachio and cherry flavor is more subtle, so I'd cut back on the chocolate chips to adjust for that. Otherwise, these are nice cookies. Very easy, and although I was worried they'd spread a ton, they didn't really. Very pretty with the green, brown, and red as well. Thanks for the recipe!

Jewel Swirls

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Very pretty cookies! The dough is incredibly soft, even after refrigerating, but with a sharp knife and reshaping the cookies slightly, they are absolutely gorgeous once baked. I like the flavor from the jello--I used sugar free (what I had in the colors hubs thought I should use), so I am not sure if with sugar jello it wouldve had more flavor or not. Still, very pretty and lovely in the different shades of red and green hubs wanted since these are for Christmas cookie tins. They don't make a lot of cookies, but are easy and I may make more--I have plenty of jello, and they are fun. Thanks for the recipe!

Venice High School Cherry Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
I baked these closer to 8 minutes, but I also made smaller cookies. They are very cute cookies, with a small amount of cherry flavor, but so easy, that they are easily made again with more. (I haven't tried, but they were so so easy, it can't be hard ;) I found my fork was sticking so I used some confectioner's sugar on my fork to help, and it did. Very cute, tasty little cookies. Thanks for the recipe!
