Grandma's Gingerbread Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2014
We weren't awed by this recipe, but I also did mess it up a bit. I added more baking powder as suggested by another reviewer but I also added more baking soda accidently. Still, this just made it more fluffy than I had planned. Surprisingly, the spices and molasses didn't add as much flavor as I like. I will try again to see if it was my mistake that made it bland. Thanks for the recipe.

Blackened Fish

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2014
Not bad, but I didn't want to smoke myself out of my house, and I didn't want to cook it outside since it's cold, so I did as another reviewer did and cooked in oil for a few minutes on high heat on each side, then finished by baking in the oven. I overbaked the fish a bit; it was sort of rubbery, so I'd bake it less next time. However, that was my fault and the seasoning was tasty. I did, however, leave out the cayenne and cut the pepper; I'm not a fan of food that is so spicy that all you can taste is the heat. Thanks for the recipe!

Muffin Tin Potatoes Gratin

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2014
Pretty tasty, but I did add a lot of seasonings. I added a garlic and onion seasoning along with salt and pepper to the potatoes themselves and I added more seasoning to the roux. Turned out well, and while I was worried the little gratins would stick badly, it wasn't so bad in my ceramic muffin pan. Hubs enjoyed them but commented on how small they were. Thanks for the recipe!

Scrambled Egg Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2014
I halved this recipe to take to a work meeting today and decided to make it the day before then just heat up in the microwave at work before serving. I didn't let it sit overnight or for 8 hours and it seemed fine. It's a bit time intensive and uses a lot of dishes but my coworkers loved it--several went back for seconds. I didn't have stuffing mix but just cubed half a loaf of bread, tossed in some seasoning, and called it good. Worked well, and it is relatively easy for all the steps. I thought it was pretty good. Thanks for the recipe.

Aggression ( Oatmeal ) Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2014
Basic oatmeal cookies. I don't have kids to make these with at the moment, so I just used my KA mixer, which worked perfectly fine as well. I halved the recipe because I didn't want to overload the mixer, and added in some vanilla and dried cranberries just because I wanted a bit more than plain oatmeal cookies. These turn out pretty well. They spread a bit, but I was able to get 9 cookies per sheet. I baked at 11 minutes and they were perfect. Thanks for the recipe.

Nutty Pecan Waffles

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2014
I made this without the pecans; I decided to add cranberries instead. I also added pumpkin pie spice while I was at it and am pleased with how the waffles came out. I'm realizing that I totally missed adding the butter in; I didn't even see it in the recipe. However, it worked perfectly fine so I see no need to add it in. I thought these were basic waffles that easily went well with my subs. thanks for the recipe!

Pumpkin Spice Soft Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2014
Cute little cookies that spread a bit, so space them a bit apart but you can still get about 9 cookies to a sheet to bake. I added the pumpkin pie spice to the sugar mixture because of a comment that you couldn't taste the spice much. These are a tad too sweet with the extra sugar for my taste, but they are sugar cookies so it makes sense. I baked for 10 minutes at 350 degrees instead of 7 minutes at 375. Thanks for the recipe!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2014
Hubs liked this; I thought it just tasted like cabbage, but I'm not a brussels sprouts fan by any means. I used a lot less pecans and added in bacon and some chicken flavored seasoning. I thought it was still a tad bland, but again, I don't like brussels sprouts so I don't think my opinion should count all that much. The sprouts didn't really carmelize so maybe a hotter temp or a longer time baking and more seasoning? Either way, hubs liked it and he will eat the leftovers so it's not all that bad, just not my taste. Thanks for the recipe!

Angel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2014
These are pretty basic chocolate chip cookies and do turn out a bit like muffin tops. No, they aren't the most flavorful, they don't spread, and they aren't chewy or crispy. That being said, if you know that going in I don't think you'll be too disappointed. If you want crispy or chewy chocolate chip cookies, find another recipe. This is a soft cookie recipe. Not bad, and makes a lot. Thanks for the recipe.

Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2014
Pretty easy, but yes, heavy on the steps. I did add more sugar to the cream cheese filling and perhaps a bit more jam than called for--the best way to keep these from sticking is to use liners and also make sure that the jam stays in the middle of the muffin--too much on the sides and it will overflow and make a big mess. I doubled this recipe and ended up with more cream cheese filling than I needed. I thought they were a tad sweet but hubs thought they were good. They turn out pretty cute but don't brown much on top if you bake at 350, which is what I did because I didn't pay attention to the oven temp until after I'd put the muffins in. The timing was still 20 mins at 350 though. Thanks for the recipe!

Not Just for Santa Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2014
Very cute little cookies. Not sure why this recipe is private. I just saved it a few days ago! Maybe Jello is no longer partnering with AR for some reason. I'm not so certain they turn out all that vanilla-y; perhaps it's the cranberries and chocolate masking the flavor. I made one batch and used the small cookie scoop. At first I thought they would be round little cookies, and they are to some extent, but they flatten a bit as they cool. These are tasty little bites and easy to make; I may try with less add ins and with the banana cream pudding mix I have to see if that changes the flavor. I baked at 350 for 10 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!

Grandma Ruth's Snickerdoodle Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2014
I'm in the midst of holiday cookie baking and I like trying new recipes every year just to see what's out there, so I don't often go to recipes others often make. However, I'm going to a friend's cookie exchange and her husband requested snickerdoodles so I decided to give this new recipe a chance. I baked at 350 for 10 minutes-I know my oven well. 400 would be too much for it but it might work for others. I also use a cookie scoop and drop them onto the sugar cinnamon mix then roll - works well for me! These spread a bit but not really much as I fit a lot of cookies on one sheet, making the baking process faster. Bear in mind though that I cannot use butter due to an intolerance and butter spreads more than margarine. All in all, a good recipe for snickerdoodles- cookies I like but don't make often only because there so many other recipes to try. Thanks for the recipe!

Byron's Ginger Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2014
The ginger was very overpowering in these cookies, or at least that's what I thought originally, and I used less. However, after they had cooled and been frozen (I do that with my holiday baking) and tried them again, they weren't as overpowering and most of my coworkers liked them. Maybe the flavor just needed some time to mellow. I can't remember my other changes and my review was cut off, but they did turn out to be pretty cookies. Thanks for the recipe.

Garlic Roasted Broccoli with Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2014
Very easy, and I thought it was tasty but hubs was "indifferent". I seriously got that answer, so I guess he didn't love it but didn't hate it either. I only put a little bit of lemon juice in it, but maybe that was his issue. Not sure, but I love the roasting method so maybe I'll make this again without the lemon juice and see if that makes him happy. Thanks for the recipe!

Oven Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2014
Pretty good! Hubs said it was a bit weird but I'm not sure why. He thought it was a bit like a cross between French toast and bread pudding. I agree and think it's better than bread pudding in some ways, which can be ridiculously difficult to get to a consistency I like. This was not soggy or too hard and wasn't too sweet although I used splenda which I swear has an aftertaste I dislike. It was incredibly easy and quick. Baking times were perfect for my oven. My only complaint is the amount of butter; I cut it down and it was almost too much. Thanks for the recipe.

Festive Fruity Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2014
This is pretty much the same recipe as the jello pastel cookies, which I've made before but its no longer on this website. Only difference is you dip a glass in reserved gelatin before you press the cookie down so you don't need frosting.

Gooey Marshmallow Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2014
I don't have marshmallows so I can't speak to that part of the recipe at all. Hubs ate them with the dog so there goes that. It did occur to me, however, to try the dried marshmallows you can buy for hot chocolate instead. I do have some, but they are at work so I will have to try that another time. They might work better than regular marshmallows that tend to melt and stick--I am quite willing to go with other reviews here since I've baked with marshmallows before. I essentially ended up with orange -y, cinnamon -y chocolate chip cookies and I really like them that way actually. I ignored the baking instructions and baked at the normal 350 for 11 minutes. Worked perfectly. Thanks for the recipe!

Pistachio Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2014
This recipe is almost the exact same as the Chocolate Chip Pistachio Cookies on here, although there is a variation with white chocolate chips and a topping for the other recipe. Other than that, pretty much the same. I tried that recipe recently using white chocolate chips and eliminating the topping and thought it was dry, so in trying this recipe, I added more milk than called for (1/4 cup) and I feel it turned out well. They don't spread much and it's certainly a different contrast with chocolate chips v. white chocolate chips in the cookies. I think I like the white chocolate chips better, but that's an easy fix to any recipe. I flattened the cookies with my fingers because I didn't want little round balls, and that worked well. I must not've mixed the pudding mix in all that well, because some of the cookies were streaked green, but I thought it was kind of fun that way. Thanks for the recipe!

Sweet and Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2014
I wanted to make chicken and broccoli today but didn't have chicken so I subbed pork, and I put it all in the crock pot. I quadrupled the sauce but kept the chili paste to one tablespoon thinking it would be plenty, and it was. I cooked the pork in the sauce, then tossed in baby carrots, then tossed in the broccoli. Once everything was done and the pork was completely falling apart, I mixed in about 6 teaspoons of cornstarch to thicken the sauce, then served over rice. It was spicy but not too spicy, and pretty tasty. This recipe clearly modifies well and using the slow cooker made it a breeze. Thanks for the recipe!

Molasses Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2014
These cookies take a bit of arm strength to mix. ;) then again, I'm used to my KA mixer so I haven't mixed cookies by hand in a long time! The dough was still wet after 6 cups of flour, so it probably is one of those cookie recipes that need more flour if you are going to make roll out cookies as suggested. I'm not a fan of roll out cookies--I admit, I'm too lazy for them, so I made drop cookies instead. I tried flattening with a glass bottom with cinnamon sugar but then resorted to rolling them in sugar and flattening with my hands, which worked better for me. The sugar kind of melts into the cookie as it bakes, so I wonder if a coarser sugar like Turbinado would not melt in. Regardless, these cookies don't spread much (I used margarine due to intolerances--butter may spread more) but they do puff up then flatten slightly as they cool. So, you can put them pretty close together on your cookie sheet. They have a very sweet, molasses flavor. I'd add more ginger and maybe a few other spices if I made these again. thanks for the recipe!
