Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Very good. My first attempt at making cheesecake, and it was so easy and good. I let the cheese and eggs come to room temp as suggested by others, and baked in a water bath. Update: This year I did not use a water bath, but only put a pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven to increase humidity. Not so successful--lots of cracks. Definitely works better with a true cheesecake water bath.

This is so good!!! I made no changes, and could eat for days. Actually, I have been eating it for days.

Graham Cracker Crust I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Very good, although I did have to double the recipe to get enough to make a cheesecake in a standard springform pan. Had some leftover, but wouldn't have had enough with just one recipe.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
People start begging for this when the holidays approach, and then hide them in the pantry so no one else can eat them. Very, very good, and I always double the recipe. I don't use a bread machine either, and have made it a few different ways. Generally, just mixing the liquid and then the dry ingredients works (of course, after letting the yeast sit to foam first).

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
I like the starch-coated chicken, but the sauce that you add to the veggies needs work. I followed another suggestion to add 2 tblsp cornstarch to broth instead of the water/bouillon combo. It was a good consistency, but tasted like thick broth and wasn't really a good flavor match with the coated chicken.

Fajita Marinade I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
Good marinade. I marinated for almost 24 hours, which was a bit much. Next time, hope to do 2 hours (unexpected dinner delay caused me to have to throw it in the fridge for another night).

Baked French Fries II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I did have to bake them quite a bit longer than it suggests, but they were great.

Seasoned Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I'm eating these as I type! Not bad, I liked the tip about cooking them on a lower heat that I got from other reviewers. I wouldn't say it's my new turkey recipe, but it was a good recipe to try. I used 2 lbs of turkey because I didn't want to waste 1/2 a lb.

Bry's Chocolate Lamb Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Very good chili! The lamb really works in chili and I would have never tried it. I halved the chili powder, because I don't like spicy, and I thought it had the perfect heat--just enough to make your throat tingle. I also thought it was a little bean heavy so will probably cut down on the beans next time, or at least use smaller beans instead of kidney. Even my 1 year old ate a whole bowl (and was up crying at bedtime probably from indigestion, but that's not the recipe's fault!). I love incorporating cinnamon into main courses, and the cocoa and cinnamon blends into this so subtly that you don't taste it directly, it just adds to the flavor.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
These are good. There's not really anything wrong with them, but they aren't really that spectacular in my opinion. Chocolate, peanut butter, and oatmeal. I'll eat them all but don't know that I will make them again. Also, for sprinkling the top layer on--don't forget that you just had it on the stove and it's still really hot. Sticking your hand in and grabbing and handful is not really the most comfortable thing to do, so use a spoon! I did not bring to room temp before cutting, not sure why you would need to. UPDATE: OK, so I let them come to room temp mostly to see how they would taste to people I might ship them to. Much better! I can't quite put my finger on it, but if you eat them cold they are not really special. Room temp, they have the right chewy gooey texture that blends much better.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Fantastic cake, and will be my #1 cake from now on. Made it for my daughter's first birthday, and although she didn't eat very much of the cake since I had so much frosting on it to distract her, I have been eating her leftovers and it's amazing! It's been sitting in the fridge for two days and it's only getting richer and better, so no worries about making it in advance for an occasion. I actually forgot to add the water in my first batch, and I think it turned out better that way--thicker batter, thicker, richer cake.

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Fantastic frosting, and will be my #1 when I'm not looking for a buttercream. Makes a lot, and I saved every last drop of my leftovers and might just eat it with a spoon, straight from the container!

Margaret's Southern Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Excellent Thanksgiving treat! The only change I made was to use Splenda Blend instead of sugar, following the conversion chart on the Splenda bag for amount to equal 1 1/3 cup regular sugar. Well, I also went the Cool Whip route instead of meringue based on preference of my "audience," but the chocolate base of this recipe is fantastic. My only qualm was that the recipe gives no indication of time needed to thicken the chocolate mix or bake. I estimated that it took 6-7 minutes for the chocolate to thicken, and I didn't bake for more than 15 minutes (had no meringue to brown so no real visual cue for when it was done). Another reviewer had an excellent tip, to use a handmixer to mix in the butter and really smooth out the chocolate.

Pumpkin Waffles with Apple Cider Syrup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Excellent waffle/syrup combo! I wasn't sure about making the syrup, but it was so simple, and I can't imagine the waffles without it. I'm sure they would need the tweaking other reviewers have mentioned if you decide to skip the syrup, because it compliments them perfectly. I made everything exactly as the recipe calls for, except I substituted 1.5 cups of whole wheat flour. Very, very good, and I was able to make 5 large Belgian waffles from the recipe. Cooked on setting 5 on iron.

Veronica's Apple Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Good recipe. I used half whole wheat flour and brown sugar, and 50% more cinnamon (I know, it's obnoxious to change a recipe so much and rate it). DO NOT follow the other reviewers' advice to up the normal pancake cooking temperature. I tried medium-high as suggested and lost my first batch immediately because they blackened right away. Very moist and tasty, and shredded apple fixes that problem of awkward chunky pieces of apple.

Apple Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
Good, but too chewy and hard to bite when made in the oven. Definitely don't reheat well either.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
I don't like peanut butter, so didn't actually taste these noodles. However, my 3 year old who loves "Chinese noodles" scarfed them down. This rating is on his behalf!

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
These were the best oatmeal pancakes I've found. Most of them take forever to cook because they are so dense, and feel like hockey pucks in your belly. This batter has the perfect liquidity to thin out on the griddle and cook evenly. They are so moist that after my first bite, I stopped to check their doneness because I expected that I had a mouthful of batter. Nope! Just good pancakes! I also used brown sugar, because I feel like that's a better compliment to oatmeal. I doubled the recipe and got 6 largish pancakes.

Simple, Classic Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
I've made this a couple times now and gotten really good results. A bit heavy on the onion for my taste, though. I always end up with enough for two deep dish pies.
