Cracked Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
I was looking for a cookie recipe that only used egg yolks after making meringue cookies. The texture was quite nice. I found it a bit oily and a bit too sweet. I would suggest cutting the oil back a bit, and not to bother with rolling in sugar. Also, with my convection oven (which I'm still learning how to use), 2 batches at 300 (automatically switched down to 275 on convection setting), it took about 22 minutes for them to puff up nicely, still before browning. I'm thinking my go-to recipe for sugar cookies is still "Best Rolled Sugar Cookies" on this site.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2013
I have (had) a standard brownie recipe that always got rave reviews. But this is amazing. No veggie aftertaste that I can detect. My seven-year-old's jaw dropped when I told her there was zucchini in this recipe! I too wondered about the apparent dryness of the batter without egg but the egg is not necessary and would probably alter the texture. The zucchini works its magic as it bakes. Walnuts and a few chocolate chips thrown in, and you are in brownie heaven. I did find the icing to be a tiny bit sloppy so next time I'll decrease the amount of milk or something. Thank you.

Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
This was a good and simple recipe that easily uses up lots of leftover tomatoes from the garden. I did find the amount of black pepper suggested to be a bit much, however. Was it really supposed to be 1.5 tablespoons, or 1.5 teaspoons? Next time, I will reduce the amount of pepper.
