Ghirardelli® Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
These were pretty good- not the best I've ever had though. Dough was pretty easy to make, I melted the chips using the microwave. Hardest part was rolling it into a log. If I were to make this again I would probably just roll them into balls. I reduced the sugar to a little more than 3/4 cup and left out the walnuts.

Rainbow Pasta Salad II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
Made this for a party & it was a big hit! I used Wishbone Italian salad dressing. I also added 8 oz. of shredded Italian cheese & 6 oz. pepperoni. I also used 5 Roma tomatoes instead of 2 large tomatoes. Thanks - I will definitely make this again!

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
These muffins were awesome! I used a little bit less sugar and flour (bc I ran out), and did the baking powder substitution wrong and they still came out great! I added probably more than 1 cup of defrosted strawberries that I coarsely chopped. I preheated the oven to 425 and when I put the muffins in I decreased the temp. to 400. They took about 15 minutes to bake in my oven.

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
This was great! As a meat lover, I wasn't so sure about it, but was pleasantly surprised. However next time I might try adding a half pound of ground turkey along with a few other alterations such as making my own sauce and no boil noodles.

Cordon Bleu Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
This was very good - i used chicken cutlets and pancko bread crumbs so it was pretty easy too. Next time I would skip the sauce since the bf didn't care for it and i thought it was just okay. Thanks for the recipe! We've added this to the cookbook.

Zucchini Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
Not sure how to rate these since i've never had zucchini pancakes before. The recipe was pretty easy but I thought they were kind of 'eggy' tasty and a little too mushy. Update - I added a bunch of parmesan cheese and some minced onion to the rest of the batter and i thought it was a lot better.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
Hard to review since I did 1 cup white sugar & 1 cup brown sugar instead of the 3 cups white sugar called for. Flavor was nice but after 35 mins in the oven they seemed cakey and overdone.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Moist & Flavorful! I made some of the popular changes too - 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce for 1/2 cup of the oil, 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup white sugar instead of 2 cups white sugar, and an extra teaspoon of vanilla. Unfortunately, I didn't get to try the frosting! Cooking lesson - label your containers. I accidentally used cake flour instead of powdered sugar so no go on the frosting.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
Just made these for breakfast - it was very easy and turned out better than any pancake I have ever made. Served one very hungry guy and me (he ate 6, I ate 2). I would make these again.

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
Moist chocolate cake that always turns out - I haven't tried the frosting but the cake is awesome. I like to add some instant coffee to the boiling water for a darker flavor. I've made 8 inch cakes, 9 inch cakes, and about 42 cupcakes with the recipe.

Spinach Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I personally thought this was really bland, my coworkers and boyfriend seemed to enjoy it though. I definitely suggest freezing the rolls as other reviewers have stated; it makes slicing a lot neater and easier.

Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
I will try this again but will take other reviewers' suggestions (reducing liquid, adding frozen corn, 1/2 black beans, etc.) I definitely thought the 2 cups of water was too much. Flavor was pretty good though and I have a ton of food for the week.

Pretty in Pink Sangria

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2014
Easy recipe with good flavor but much too sweet for me. I used Sutter home White Zinfandel.

Dark Guinness® Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
Great recipe! Unlike a lot of recipes with alcohol, I could actually taste the beer in these brownies and the flavor wasn't overwhelming. Changes: I cut the sugar down by 1/4 cup (I generally do this in recipes); used Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips instead of chopping 8 oz; and melted the chocolate in the microwave for 1 min, stirred, then 20 seconds more in the mic instead of the double boiler. Other than those changes, I followed the recipe exactly. Next time I will mix the semisweet chocolate chips in so that there can be gooey chocolate bits throughout.

Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
Loved this! After reading the reviews, I used no sodium tomato sauce and reduced sodium taco seasoning. I also used an 8 oz can of tomato sauce since I couldn't find a 4 oz one. I mixed everything but the chicken together and poured it over the chicken. I made this in the crockpot.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Very simple! I like to reduce the sugar to a little less than 1/2 cup and add some dark chocolate chips.

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
Omitted the cream of tartar as recommended by others - turned out very fluffy and moist. Next time might add some cheese and brush with garlic butter for more flavor and better color

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
Made the changes suggested by most people - 2 1/4 cups flour, 4 tsp vanilla, & buttermilk instead of regular milk. Turned out very moist - next time might decrease the cocoa powder a little as they were a little more burgundy than red
