Marranitos (Mexican Pig-Shaped Cookies)

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
These turned out well but I found the dough a little difficult to work with. I did end up using the full six cups of flour. 1/2 Molasses and 1/2 honey and dark brown sugar. I also added a little orange zest for additional flavor. I had a 3.75" pig cookie cutter and baked them for 12 minutes. I would go a little less next time so they are a bit softer. The centers were soft but the feet were crunchy. Good dunkers for hot tea. The Mexican guys at work really liked them. I would make them again.

Apricot Cream Cheese Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
These are excellent. I did add a tsp. of vanilla extract to the dough. This is A LOT of dough to work with so use a big bowl. With a 1TBS. portion scoop, recipe yield was 112 cookies. I also used the back of the portion scoop dipped in powdered sugar to make the indentation. They freeze well too. I did use both strawberry and apricot filling. Both were excellent. Not sure about those who state that they're not sweet enough or that they're dry. These cookies were perfect in texture and sweetness.

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
I bake A LOT and make some very elaborate/labor intensive desserts but I needed a no-bake recipe for Father's day. This was PERFECT and so easy. I couldn't believe how good it tasted with so little effort. I added 1tsp. of carmel extract to the pudding mixture and made my own fudge icing. It was great! Thank you!

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
These are excellent. I did use 5 TBS of Splenda BS blend instead of straight BS. In addition to the wheat bran I added 1/4C. of wheat germ to boost the fiber. LOVED THEM. Great with chocolate chips instead of raisins. Tastes great the next day. Very moist.

Rich Chocolate Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
Frosting was excellent but I didn't care for the brownie too much. It was too much like cake and I prefer a fudge like texture. Flavor was good but I probably won't make them again.

Creamed Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2009
Get yourself an inexpensive potato ricer. It's PERFECT for getting all of the excess water out of the thawed spinach. Also works great for shredded zucchini recipes. I used 3 eggs and only two TBS of butter along with crushed whole wheat crackers and a touch of parm for the topping. I did add some onion powder, garlic powder and a pinch of red pepper. I put it all in a 9" glass pie plate sprayed with pam. I cook it for 30minutes. Comes out perfect every time. I follow the South Beach diet and this is perfect for breakfast or as your side vegetable with dinner.

Sugar Snap Peas

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
I tried sugar snap peas in the past and I did NOT like them. I am attempting to eat more veggies so I thought I would try them again. They were wonderful and I didn't even have any thyme. Otherwise, made as is. I had to go to the store to buy more peas because they were so good. Good and simple.

Baked Fennel with Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
I enjoy fennel but I wanted to try a new recipe. This was pretty good but I did add some dried onion and fresh black pepper. Creme fraiche was not available so I used greek yogurt. Maybe a little more parm next time. Thanks.

Zucchini Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
These were so good. I am on the South Beach program and these were a nice break from my everyday options. I made them with WW flour and added a bit of garlic powder, cajun seasoning and fresh oreagno. I did wring the zucchini in a kitchen towel to remove excess moisture. I like them crispy. They were crispy outside and tender inside but not mushy. I loved how these turned out in both texture and flavor. Thank you.

Ranch Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I enjoyed them and they were easy to make but they did not go very quickly at the party. I guess there were too many other tempting items.

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Overall, very tasty but way too sweet. I used only 1/4 c. of sugar and it was still too sweet. The overall flavor and texture was quite good especially when I added some cubes of cheddar cheese and a bit of celery seeds.I also used cider vinegar vs. white. I will make it again, just with less sugar.

Sweet Corn Cakes

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
Good stuff. It was a little sweet with 1/4C. of sugar. I also used 1/4C. of butter and that was perfect.Instead of frozen corn and water, I just pureed a can of corn in the blender. It was perfect, just like the restaurants. I cooked it for 50 minutes and let it rest for 10.Probably a good way to get a kid to eat veggies. Thank you.

Toll House Walnut Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Just what I was looking for. I used only 1/2 C. of butter and added 1 tsp. of vanilla extract and 1/4 C. of coconut. It was excellent. I did cover the entire pie with foil with 15 minutes of cooking time left so the top was not too brown. I loved this pie!!!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
These came out PERFECT! I had to use Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream but they were not missing a thing. I also added the zest of one lemon. Excellent!!! I have since made them with sour cream and orange zest. They always turn out perfect. Only problem is, I can't stop eating them. YUM!

Chicken Wing Dip

Frosted Banana Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
These are so good. I altered the recipe to 1C. brown sugar and 1.5C. all purpose flour plus 1/2C. Whole wheat flour. I baked it in a 9x13 glass pan for 28 minutes. When cooled, I just topped it with powdered sugar. It really does not need icing. It's perfect

Grilled Ginger-Peanut Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
This was so good. I used teriyaki because I was out of soy and also added some crushed pepper to the mix. No additional salt was needed. I seared it on the stove top in a grill pan then moved it to the oven to finish cooking over a bed of some sliced onions. I would certainly make this again. The P.B was a nice addition.
