Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: May 1, 2015
Perfect, perfect perfect chocolate frosting recipe. I added a touch more confectioners sugar to make the frosting a little more stiff, as I was piping it onto my cupcakes, but other than that, didn't change a thing. My batch frosted about 15 cupcakes.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2015
Hands down, best and easiest brownie recipe! I used a wooden spoon to mix everything together and did not frost them. They got a really nice crispy edge and the inside was nice and chewy. Will definitely make again. Thanks for the great recipe.

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2015
Great recipe and definitely adaptable to whatever veggies you have. I added a can of black beans and small white beans for some protein. It does make a ton of soup, but I thought all the amounts were just right. It does last for quite some time in the fridge as well. Thanks for the great recipe!

Hearty Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2015
Very good recipe, and yes, these do freeze very well. I added dried cherries and blueberries and added quite a few more raisins. Next time I'll cut back on the brown sugar a bit, as the dried fruit I added gave it a bit more sweetness. Thanks for the great recipe!

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2013
So good and very easy to "use what you have." I couldn't find herb and garlic feta, so I used Rondell soft cheese with herbs and garlic (very creamy) and I used a mixture of other cheeses I had on hand. I used a refrigerated pie crust, which I baked for about 5-6 minutes and then poured the mixture into it to bake for the rest of the time. Thanks so much for this great recipe!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
Very good and very easy. I roasted a few heads of garlic and added a bit more lemon juice and paprika. I also added marinated artichoke hearts when I blended it. Thanks for the great recipe!

Cinnamon Coffee Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
This was very good and very easy to make. i was looking for a coffee cake recipe that did not start with a boxed cake mix. i only made half the recipe and baked it in a loaf pan. I messed up by not putting as much of the cinnamon sugar filling in the middle layers, so I'll know next time to add more. The cake iitself was very good. Thanks for the great recipe!

Peppermint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
These turned out very flat for me and were extremely hard to get off the cookie sheet after the two minutes of cooling - they pretty much fell apart. The cookies themselves taste fine, but I won't make again due to the fact that they just didn't turn out for me.

Spinach Lasagna III

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
This was very good. I added a bit more fresh spinach, which I sautéed with the mushrooms and onion and also added a few tablespoons of Alfredo sauce in the layers. I just mixed everything together with a wooden spoon. My lasagna noodles were on the small side, so I used just about as many as the recipe called for. Was looking for a spinach lasagna and this is now my go-to recipe. Thanks for submitting!

Sweet Polish Cherry Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
The only change I made was to use sour cream for the yogurt. This definitely is a more dry cake and I like mine a little more moist, so I may experiment and add more sour cream/yogurt next time. Mine was also done at just about 30 minutes, so definitely check it when you smell it baking! Thanks for sharing!

Italian Cookies I

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
Very good and very easy cookie. These are not meant to be sweet (even though I accidently added more sugar to the first batch!) I remember eating these when I was young - forgot what I was missing!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
The taste of these were very good and very chocolately, but they weren't fudgey (gooey) like I like brownies to be. I think next time I will use one less egg and see if that makes them less cake-like. Thanks for the great recipe!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
Incredibly delicious! I used sweet italian sausage, a bit less of the red pepper flakes, a mix of small potatoes and light cream/regular milk. I added the sausage earlier than called for too. I think my bacon was salty, as I could taste that, so next time I'll buy lower sodium bacon, or may leave it out altogether. Thanks for the great recipe!

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
Excellent soup, and I'm not even that crazy about vegetable soups! I added an additional can of black beans, a little bit of celery, some green bell pepper and some mexican spices. I simmered mine for a few hours and added the corn and some arborio rice the last 30 minutes of cooking. Next time I'll throw in some spinach. This is definitely one of those soups you can add just about anything to and it comes out great. Thanks for the great recipe!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
I used Splenda for the sugar, used half wheat/half white flour, and added butterscotch chips instead of the nuts. Very good cookies and are still good days after making them. Thanks for sharing!

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
I used half applesauce/half oil and more cinnamon, no cloves and about 1/2 cup more pumpkin. I made the cake portion different ways and found that piping it with a large decorating tip worked the best and kept the cookies a consistent size. The pumpkin flavor in the cakes is really good. I also used a cream cheese icing, as that is what I had, and they turned out wonderful! I froze the whoopie pies both before and after icing and had no problems with any sticky cakes. Thanks for the great recipe!

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
I used half wheat/half white flour, used smooth peanut butter (added about 1/2 cup more than called for) and added a mixture of peanut butter/chocolate chips to some of them. Mine were almost done at 8 minutes, so I took them out of the oven and left them on the pan to continue baking for another minute or two. They came out very chewy. Even though peanut butter cookies are generally a more dry cookie - these came out just like I expected them to be. Thanks for the great recipe.

Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I used half applesauce and half oil, splenda for the sugar and half whole wheat and half white flour. Since I grated the apples, I ended up with almost 4 1/2 cups of apples, but I think that just added to the moistness of the cake. The cake came out great, even with my little changes. Thanks for sharing!

Mexican Chicken I

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I made these with chicken breast tenders, so it cooked fairly quickly. I didn't have any cumin, but I used a few squirts of fresh mexican seasoning in a tube and also added a bit of chopped onion. Very good and excellent way to use black beans. Thanks for sharing!

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
I upped the apple to almost 1 1/2 cups, used Splenda for the sugar and omitted the nuts. Made them in a 9x9 pan and baked them for exactly 30 minutes. Came out perfect. Great flavor and I will make them again. Will probably up the cinnamon next time. Thanks for sharing!
