Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 14, 2013
With almost 900 positive reviews, I thought this was going to be a sure winner. Boy was I surprised. These are decidedly the worst cookies I've ever made! I had to check myself to make sure I didn't do something right because these cookies are ridiculously fluffy and very, very bland. My 10 year old took one bite and put it back on the pan. My 5 year old came in later and tried one, and the first thing he said was, "These taste weird." I threw them all in the trash.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
Delicious! I followed the recipe and found it was just a tad too orangy for us. Like others have mentioned, I will cut down on the zest slightly. Other than that, it was gooey and delicious!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I had to come back and rewrite my review. Initially I gave it 3 stars because out of the oven, these cookies didn't taste right. My 6 year old wasn't impressed either. But the cookies the next day were delicious! I baked two batches, the first batch I baked for 8 minutes and the cookies came out really good and chewy. The second batch was timed for 9 minutes, and they were crunchy. This recipe is fantastic considering how simple it is!

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I made this tonight for my husband and family and it was a hit! My 6 year old said it was delicious. My husband doesn't like tomato cream sauces, but he went back for thirds with this recipe! I substituted sweet turkey sausage and it came out great. I plan on making it for an upcoming party this weekend.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
I just made these tonight and they are like nothing I've ever had! They are cake-like and like another reviewer said, they bake up exactly as you put them on the sheet. Next time I will most definitely add more cinnamon and nutmeg and I think using the whole bag of chocolate chips is better. I'd imagine that mini chocolate chips would be fantastic in this recipe. I find that with pumpkin recipes, they always taste better the next day. Overall, this is a very interesting recipe worth a try.

Giant Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
I was looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe that didn't require brown sugar because I didn't have any, and came across this recipe which looked promising. I have never tried a chocolate chip cookie that I didn't like...until I had these. First off, they're really crispy because they're so flat, which really wasn't so bad. The bad part is that mine came out really salty. I mean REALLY salty. I'm not sure why no one else seemed to have this problem. I measured everything exactly as it listed. My four year old didn't even finish his cookie and I didn't bother making the whole batch.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
I was born and bred in Hawaii and I have to say that this recipe is DELICIOUS - just like they make back home. A few minutes before serving, I added in some shredded cabbage and it was very yummy. I also served with steamed white rice.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2003
I just made this recipe and found it to be rather bland tasting even after I added a tsp of vanilla as some of the other reviewers recommended. It's a quick and simple recipe, but I suggest giving it some 'umph' by being bold and improvising by adding more flavoring. Also, watch the bake time. I baked mine for 60 minutes, and the top of the bread came out stiff and over cooked, but the middle did remain nice and moist.
