Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
Amazing. I tossed the whole 16 oz bag of Oreos in the food processor with the cream cheese. Couldn't have been easier. Fantastic recipe that was quickly devoured.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Love it. Been doing this for years without the butter and in the toaster oven. Having melty peanut butter squeezing out from between two slices of toasty bread is wonderful.

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Oh oven, why hast thou forsaken me? What was supposed to take 40 minutes to cook took 1 hr 20 minutes (when I usually don't have more than a 5 minute time discrepancy between my oven and stated cooking times). Ultimately, there was still a patch that wasn't quite cooked through, and 1/4 of the cake fell apart when I tried to flip it. Glad I lined my springform pan with tin foil - it was a juicy mess. I give it 3 stars on taste, but it loses the other two for messiness and not turning out 100%.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
Amazing soup! I made very few adjustments in ingredients to match my personal taste. This one's definitely a make again - Bravo Jamie! I just want to point out that because so many canned ingredients are being used here, a serving of this soup and a can (which is regarded as approximately 2 servings) of Progresso Minestrone soup are not too far off. True, making it at home allows us to include a lot more vegetables than the canned soup, but let's not fall under the illusion that this version of Minestrone is so much healthier than we can find in a can. Calories: Serving of Jamie's soup - 232 Can of Progresso - 220 Total Fat: Serving of Jamie's soup - 8.3g Can of Progresso - 4g Saturated Fat: Serving of Jamie's soup - 1.4g Can of Progresso - 1g Sodium: Serving of Jamie's soup - 1267mg Can of Progresso - 1920mg Carbs: Serving of Jamie's soup - 32.1g Can of Progresso - 38g Sugars: Serving of Jamie's soup - 12.1g Can of Progresso - 4g I'm still a fan of this recipe, and I think that the benefits of having the chunky fresh vegetables in the soup outweigh the higher sugar and fat content by a longshot, but some people on restrictive diets may not agree.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
The submitter must be coating these eggplant slices at the speed of light to have them all prepared in 25 minutes! It took me more than twice as long and 5 eggs to get all of them coated. My family and I decided that it was pretty average as far as taste went. It didn't seem to be worth the effort it took to make--Very average recipe.

Fortune Cookies So Easy

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2004
They're a great novelty (I made "Spooky Fortune Cookies" for a Halloween party I went to), and taste pretty good, but they are VERY difficult to work with. It's hard to strike a balance between making them too cake-like and making them too crisp so that they won't fold properly. I had to put them in muffin tins to keep them together. Would I make them again? Perhaps, but only for its novelty value.

Sweet Potato Cookies II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2004
This is by far the strangest cookie I have ever made. It has almost a cake-like texture; VERY soft and fluffy, and the flavor of the nutmeg comes out beautifully (I also added a teaspoon of vanilla extract) with a perfect hint of sweet potato goodness. Fresh out of the oven, it didn't seem to have too much flavor although the texture was lovely. I waited for it to set for a while and about four hours later, it was perfect. I've eaten five already, and made a batch of thirty. By their quality, I'd say they'll be gone the second my apartmentmates wake up tomorrow ;^_^ Unexpectedly excellent recipe: Bravo!

Pan de Muertos (Mexican Bread of the Dead)

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2004
Simple recipe with excellent results. I used orange extract instead of orange zest and I would probably double the anise seeds next time. Overall, it was a big hit and a definite make-again.

Sweet Potato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2004
Absolutely fantastic recipe! I served it to a bunch of college friends for dinner and it was gone before everyone arrived. Everyone liked it so much that I ended up e-mailing the recipe to two people so far.
