Bazlama - Turkish Flat Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
I read the other reviews and only one person that I could see said this dough was sticky yet I couldn't even work with it, it was so sticky. I double checked my ingredient measurements, all were correct. I ended up adding probably another whole cup of flour before I could even handle it. That said, the end result was very yummy bread. My other half loved it and that's always a good sign.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
I found these a bit ordinary. I have had better for sure, but my other half liked them. They weren't terrible, just sort of bland.

Amish Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
I didn't read the instructions properly so I didn't restart the bread machine, but the bread still came out really great although the loaf size was smallish. I also used vegetable oil as I had no canola oil but I think this was the nicest bread machine bread I have made so far. I'll definitely make it again.

Beer Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
These rolls came out just right. Often, even though I use the correct measurements making bread/rolls etc, I find the dough is too sticky, but this dough was very easy to handle. My other half really enjoyed them. I personally prefer lighter rolls, but I made these because I had some leftover Guinness to use up. I hate to waste anything. :)

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
This bread was delicious. I cut back on the herbs so it wouldn't have too strong a flavor. The texture was great, really soft and light.

German Apple Pancake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
This recipe is straight out of the Bon Appetit 'Breakfasts and Brunches' cookbook...word for word. Anyway, I used all 4 eggs but think I'd cut back to 3, maybe even 2 next time. I also doubled the apples like many other people here. It was enjoyable enough, but I'm not sure I'd bother making it again.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Turned out great. I ended up making four smaller baguettes and served them fresh from the oven with a chicken & veggie casserole. My man raved about the bread...not so much about the chicken, lol. (I personally thought the casserole was delicious!)

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
This pork was so bland when I took it out of the slow cooker last night. I just tasted it this morning and the flavor seems to have developed. Tastes much better the second day, more smoky.

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
I halved the recipe and made one loaf. I was very happy with how the bread turned out. As others mentioned, it is a dense bread, but still yummy. The small amount left over did not keep well though. It was quite hard the following morning even though I had wrapped it up overnight. Would make good french toast though.

Mom's Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
Pretty good. I didn't have a lemon on hand so omitted the lemon juice but other than that, followed the recipe using Bisquick. Not as light and fluffy as the buttermilk pancakes I usually make but definitely a good way to use up leftover apple sauce which is what prompted me to make them.

Favorite Buttermilk Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
Tasted nice but was very hard to cut. It just kept falling apart. I doubt I'll make it again. There are so many other bread recipes to choose from.

Cheesy Ham and Asparagus Bake

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
Pretty good....a bit bland so I'll add more seasoning next time. Admittedly I had no tarragon so that might be part of the reason but I'm not a tarragon fan.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I thought they were a bit dense, but bran muffins are probably supposed to be that way. I am used to lighter, less healthy ones. They were pretty good though. I added in a few blueberries.

Cherry Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
Very delicious. I cooked for 60 mins and that was a fraction too long I think. The cake was slightly on the dry side but still really enjoyable. I cooked it in a 9.5 inch bundt pan as I couldn't find an 8 inch one.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
This was better the next day after it had been in the fridge. It was way too runny to enjoy the day I made it even though we didn't eat it until four hours later.

Serendipity Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2012
I am rating this 5 stars for the dough. I can't count how many dough recipes I have tried from this site. Bread, flatbread, pizza dough recipes. Some have been good, some not so much but this is the BEST so far. When it came out of my bread machine, the dough was the ideal consistency. Generally I have trouble with the dough being too sticky to work with and I have to keep adding flour. This one was absolutely perfect. Easy to divide, easy to roll out, it didn't keep sticking to my mat or rolling pin..and it tasted great! I didn't do the feta thing. I grilled it and used it as a base for the pizza I was making last night. Tonight I'm using what's left to make little flatbreads to accompany dinner. If I only had some feta.....

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
When chili is the star of the show, I make the Boilermaker Tailgate Chili from this site, but today I am making chili cheese fries so I didn't feel like putting quite as much effort into the chili. If you've seen the other recipe, you'll know what I mean! Debdoozie's chili is super fast to prepare and tastes decent.

Cajun Shrimp Orecchiette

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Very yummy. Even the non-pasta loving man of the house enjoyed it. I basically made it as per the recipe except for using shell pasta as I didn't have the other kind.
