Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2006
My sister and I used this recipe to make favors for a birthday party. We had to make a lot of icing, and were looking for an easy recipe. This worked very well. We used lemon extract instead of almond, and added extra milk and corn syrup. The cookies are really pretty and the icing tastes great! (We made one batch of icing with vanilla soy milk, and it turned out well).

Banana Pudding I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2007
I made this pudding for my very picky boyfriend and he loved it. I am lactose intolerant (but I can handle butter) so I made it with plain soy milk instead of the cow stuff, and it came out great. Mr. Picky eater didn't even know that I used soy. I put the heat at medium, and didn't have any trouble getting the pudding to thicken.

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
I made this cake for the teachers I work with, and everyone loved it! Following the suggestions of others I added nutmeg, cinnamon and ground cloves. I used about 2.5 cups of peaches, and think I will up it to 3 next time. There will certainly be a next time!

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
This was my first attempt at zucchini bread. Based on the reviews of others I added (about a teaspoon) nutmeg and used 1/2 oil and 1/2 applesauce. The bread tasted great, but I had trouble getting it out of the pan (maybe because I decreased the oil?). Also, about 1 cm of the middle of the top of my loaf (where it split after rising)didn't cook. Still, this is a great recipie. I took it to work and got rave reviews from the rest of the faculty.

Orange Drop Cookies II

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
I made these cookies but based on the reviews of others I made a few changes. I used a cup of orange juice instead of 1/2 a cup of water, and added about 1 tsp. each of ground ginger and nutmeg. Also, I used half butter and half shortning (didn't have enough). I baked the cookies in muffin tins and they held their shape. They came out more like cake than cookies. The flavor was light but pleasant, I just wasn't thrilled with them.

Sugar Free Eggnog

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
This is pretty good! I made it with soy milk, so it was the antithesis of egg nog (no egg, no dairy, no sugar, lol), but it tasted like egg nog. I will make this again. Thanks!

Black Halloween Punch

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
I made this for a middle school Halloween Dance, and the kids loved it. (I served the punch in one blue and one green bowl, and it looked black.) Thanks!

Mini Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
My mom and I used to make pineapple upside-down cake all the time when I was little. I needed to make a dessert for my brother's surprise party, and these minis were perfect. The only thing I did differently was to use the jumbo muffin tins (bake for 20 min), and to cook the cherry into the cake. I got rave reviews from everyone at that party. Thanks!!!!

Grandma Minnie's Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
These cookies are very easy to make. We chilled some of the dough briefly (mainly because there was so much that I couldn't roll it all out at once), but it rolled out well at room temperature. We made one batch with butter flavored crisco and vanilla soy milk because I am allergic to dairy -- and they came out fine.

Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding I

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
I made this recipe yesterday and wasn't thrilled. Maybe I just don't like rice pudding, I'd never had it before. I just felt like it just tasted sweet, but didn't really have much flavor (although, I didn't have rasins... maybe they would have helped).

Garlic Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
These spinach balls are wonderful. I was looking to recreate my friend's recipe, and this one worked very well. I used margarine and omitted the cheese because I am allergic to dairy, but the spinach balls were still a hit. Thanks!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
These cookies came out really well. They are light and chewy. I added nutmeg for a little more flavor, used margarine instead of butter (dairy allergy) , and used a mix of brown sugar and Splenda brown sugar (all I had). Yum!

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
I made this recipe for the first day of school. My co-workers really liked them, and the pan is empty. Thanks for a great recipe. Oh, there really is no need to cook the yam or use canned, just follow the recipe and shred the raw, peeled yam and it comes out fine.

Sweet Potato-Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
This recipe is really good! I decided to cut down on the amount of sauce based on other reviews. I just eyeballed it, but I think I used about half of what the recipe called for. Additionally, I put a little extra garlic, along with some oregano and basil. I made this on Tuesday, and had the leftovers last night, the texture really does improve overnight.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
This is a great recipe. I had never made a pie crust prior to using this recipe, and it was super easy. I don't think i will ever go back to ready-made crusts or mixes. I have made this with shortening and with lard (soy allergy), and both came out well. Thank you!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
This is fantastic! I made a few alterations to the recipe... I don't like chocolate chips in bread, so I omitted them. I made one loaf with just walnuts (yum) one with raisins and walnuts (double yum) and the third with raisins, walnuts, a pinch of ground ginger and a dash of vanilla extract (triple yum).
