Mincemeat III

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
The recipe states that it makes 8 quarts, but I only got 6 1/2 quarts. And that is with adding 2 extra cups of gooseberries to the mix. Also, baking it in the oven for 30 minutes does not heat it up that much, so I wonder if I should have heated it in a pot on the stove. I am actually processing the jars right now as I speak. I have yet to taste it, as I plan to let it age 2-3 months for holiday cooking. But with the mix of ingredients that it has in it, it should be quite good.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
Okay flavor, but too cake-like for a cookie. Recipe might have worked better as muffins or possibly as banana-chocolate chip bread. If I make this recipe again I might try cutting down on the baking powder and/or baking soda to see if it makes these cookies less cake-y. Also, when I baked these, the edges got too dark almost to the point of burning, even after only 12 minutes of cook time. I would advise either turning down the oven temperature a bit, or lessening the cooking time.

Robbi's M&M Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
I have made this recipe 2 different times and both times the cookies turned out very flat. Other reviewers suggested adding more flour to the recipe. So, I will give it one more try, this time adding 1/4 to 1/2 cup more flour and see if that makes any difference. If it doesn't, I will look for another M&M cookie recipe.
