Fairly good. A little watery. I used fresh peaches.

Oat Bran Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
Delicious and easy. Be aware that it makes a very small loaf, but rises a lot during the process. I don't have access to my bread machine, so I made these by hand. To do so, do the following: 1. Mix yeast and water and let stand for 5 minutes. 2. Add melted margarine and honey (ie. the liquids) to the mixture and then your dry ingredients, saving the salt for the last ingredient. 3. Form a soft dough, and cover bowl with a wet cloth and let rise in a warm place (or the oven set on 200 degrees and then turned off) for about an hour. 4. Take the dough and knead it. Put dough in bread tin and again cover with a wet cloth and let rise for about 1/2 hour in a warm place. 5. Cook at directed. I altered the recipe slightly, adding 1 tbsp of sugar and using a combination of 1.5 cups wheat flour and the remaining cup white flour. It turned out beautifully.

Mexican Cookie Rings

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
Decent. Hard to make them look nice because the rings want to cook into each other in the center.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
Delicious, quick, easy, and tasty. I rolled in granulated sugar by mistake, but still like the result. Perfect for when you're in a pinch.

Chocolate Marshmallow Puffs

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
Hard to work with. The dough was too crumbly and once cooked, the marshmallow oozed out of the cracks of the "crackle cooke" which is what it was - not a puff. I tore up big marshmallows to mini-marshmallow size. The tast is decent, so with the second batch I got a 9x9 pan, put half of the dough in the bottom, sprinkled marshmallows on top, and then pressed the remaining dough on top, and made marshmallow puff bars. :) It was MUCH easier and the results were just as good. I likely cooked it for ~20-25 minutes? I do not advise the ball route. All in all, probably won't make again, but thanks for putting it up!

Berry Shortbread Dreams

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Pretty good. Excellent taste. However, the dough is really crumbly and even after chilling, is hard to keep together. I had to add a touch of water. Also, I added 1/2 tsp of vanilla to the dough. Drizzle is lovely, but wait until the cookies fully cool or else the drizzle will meld with the jam and destroy its potential to be attractive. I also made these pretty large to have room for jam - had about 16, not 21.

Savory Crescent Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
Easy. Salt, peppered, and added paprika to the shredded cooked chicken before mixing with the rest of the called-for ingredients. Skipped the croutons and pimientos. Perfect for dinner parties - everyone gets their own! I thought there may be too much bread, though, and might roll out the dough a bit next time and make more "dumplings."

Pumpkin Cheesecake Dessert

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
I loved this, but no one in the family was quite taken by it. The pumpkin flavor overwhelms the cheesecake, so if you prefer the former over the latter, this is the cheesecake for you. Added extra cinnamon; the crust is amazing.

Yummy. Just like any of your basic casseroles- good comfort food. My mom was a fan.

Garlic Potatoes Gratin

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
Delicious. Made for my family, all of whom loved it. I used 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and sliced. Microwaved them covered with plastic wrap for ~4.75 minutes, and then baked them for ~ 1 hour, or until tops browned. Also initially sprinkled salt, pepper, and paprika to potatoes to keep the dish from being too bland. It would be perfect for dinner parties or potlucks.

Zopf

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
Texture: amazing- soft, toasts very well, dough easy to braid and work with. Taste: very very bland. This would be good to dip into flavored olive oil, or toast with honey or jam. But as a bread itself, the taste is lacking and flavorless. Process: I used my bread machine, putting in the milk, egg, & butter, followed by flour and yeast. I rose once in my machine. Then I took it out, braided it, and left it out for about 45 minutes (covered with a wet cloth) to rise (and it rose a lot, so I recommend a second rise). cooked about 20 minutes. Very light bread.- (If) Next-time alterations: add 3/4 teaspoon salt (a must), 1 tsp sugar.

Cocoa Almond Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
Not a fan. Consistency is good and it is super easy to make, but the cocoa taste is too strong. Of course, I also dislike chocolate chips in my bread, so perhaps another would like this more.

Raspberry Walnut Torte

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
OK. I didn't think it was anything amazing, but it did look pretty and taste decent. A little too much work for me. To save time, mix all 3 cups of the whipping cream at the same time and just half it.

Poppy Seed Yeast Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
Light and airy with a tinge of sweetness. Wonderful bread, and the recipe creates a large loaf- I set my machine as 2 lbs. I used normal flour, no butter flavoring, and slightly less than 2 tbs. of poppy seeds. This doesn't dry out quickly and the best part is you can taste the poppy seed flavor (and see them!). My mom thought it needed to be sweeter, so I may increase the sugar next time.

Buttery Spritz Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
I really enjoyed these. The dough was a bit soft which made it somewhat hard to work with, but it worked in the end. I split the dough in thirds and dyed one batch blue and the other pink. Used silver sprinkles. Very tasty and melt in the mouth.

Yummy Peanut Butter Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
It was decent. I increased to 1/2 a cup of creamy peanut butter, and you could definately taste it (a positive element). I also used normal flour. The bread itself isn't expecially moist or light. Quite tasty toasted with peanut butter on top. Would recommend crunchy peanut butter if you have it on hand.
