Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
Almost burned on the edges, gooey in the middle, not nearly sweet or moist enough. What the heck? I'm not by any means a novice baker, either. Wouldn't make this again.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I made these according to the recipe except that I used chocolate candy melts instead of the almond bark stuff you get at the grocery store and froze the cake mix/frosting balls for a couple hours before dipping. I bit into one to test it after they were done and oh my word. The reviews that said they tasted uncooked (like cake batter) and/or like they had already been chewed were right. I immediately went out to the store and got another cake mix. My problems with the first round were that the combination of the freezing, too much frosting, and the fact that cake mixes you buy these days have pudding in them and therefore are already very moist all contributed to making the insides a mushy mess. So. I made my new cake, crumbled it up, and formed one small test ball out of just cake crumbs, no frosting. I put it in the fridge, not freezer, for a couple of hours, then dipped it in the chocolate. The result? Exactly what I had envisioned these to be. CAKE inside, not cake-batter-tasting mush. I say, don't use frosting at all...It only makes things mushier, not to mention it makes these much less horrible for you, and DON'T freeze them before dipping...Just put them in the fridge.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I was a little wary of this because some of the reviews indicated it was really spicy. Granted, I LOVE spicy food, but I didn't find it too spicy or even all that spicy. It tastes exactly like the taco seasoning packets you buy, but this is so much better because you can control the amount of salt. I took a cue from another review and added cornstarch and water to thicken up the sauce it made. Really good stuff!!

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
I cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup like some reviews suggested, and wished I hadn't. Oh well, now I know it won't be too sweet for me prepared as written. Still quite tasty even as I made it this time--nice and light!

Absolutely Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Edited review: Once I tried these with self-rising flour, they were very good. They could still be a smidge sweeter for my taste, but they came out moist and fudgy, like brownies should be.

Honey Mustard Sauce

Perfect!!! This is exactly what I was looking for. The result is a really balanced, not too sweet sauce.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
Really moist, tasty, and EASY. I baked them in the oven as directed and then simmered them for about a half hour in marinara sauce and served them on rolls as meatball sandwiches--YUM! I will definitely make these again.

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
I'm sorry, but I did not care for this recipe. The batter looked great, the finished cookies looked great, but there is definitely far too much flour and not enough sugar going on. Definitely won't be making these ever again.

Creamy Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
WOW. I can't believe how easy this was and how few ingredients! I made this for Valentine's Day dessert and it was really, really tasty. It can be made a bit lighter too with low fat cream cheese and a reduced fat crust.

Peanut Cilantro Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
This is a bit on the thin side for a dip, but it's GREAT as a marinade for chicken or tossed with whole wheat noodles for an awesome Thai pasta. I substitute some of the peanut oil with sesame oil and chili oil--yum! Oh, and use lime juice, not lemon, and reduced sodium soy sauce--trust me!

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2007
So good and so, so easy. I've been using Budweiser Select and it gives a slightly nutty taste. I love that the top and sides of the loaf are so crunchy but the inside is super soft! I've also added a little bit of shredded Parmesan on the top for extra flavor.
