Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
Well well well... all the comments were right. Absolutely delicious, the pudding blends in like a charm. I'm sure these would have stayed moist and yummy for a while, but my friends ate them all the day I made them.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
These pancakes really are as incredible as the nearly 30,000 loyalists say they are. I didn't tweak a thing in the recipe, and the pancakes came out beautifully. I'd be curious to try adding in a little vanilla or orange zest for flavor, but really, these are just amazing.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
Delicious. I made 1.5x the topping, and halved the water, and enjoyed it that way. Haven't tried the exact recipe, but I can't imagine it would be disastrous. This is just such a solid crisp... cinnamony, crunchy, smooth, absolutely lovely. Top it with some vanilla ice cream.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
Amazingly good cookie. I had to substitute maple syrup in for the vanilla (I just didn't have vanilla), but otherwise followed the recipe to a t. Beautiful, perfect cookies. Absolutely delicious taste. I feel like I should have to fork over $3 every time I eat one of these.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
What lovely cookies! They're not too sweet, they're chewy and yet firm. Excellent. Like everyone recommended, I did not flatten them with a sugared fork.

Orange Juice Tzimmes

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
What an AMAZING tzimmes. When I was cooking it, it looked so uninspiring... but as that hour of simmering passed, my goodness, it starts to smell incredible. By the end it, it was just incredible. ONE SUBSTITUTION, ONE CHANGE: apricots instead of prunes, 2/3 the sugar.

Golden Orange Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
Nice frosting! This is very much what you make of it. Do you want something really stiff? Put in lots of sugar and less juice. Do you want something more liquidy? More juice, less sugar. To do this, I got the butter/zest/salt base down (omitted the yolk, like other reviewers said), then took turns adding a cup of sugar and a few teaspoons of juice. This let me bulk up in volume while keeping a good consistency, and when it came time to spread it on the cake, I got it as stiff/liquidy as I wanted. I loved being able to control it like that. I pretty much doubled the recipe. That got me more than enough icing for a three-layer 9-inch round cake.

Rainbow Citrus Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
FUN. Yes, the cake is a lot of work, but it's so special. I've never seen anything like this anywhere else... neither as the eater or the chef. And what a fascinating combination of flavors and colors. // I was, honestly, grossed out by using shortening, but the end product is tasty. And by the time you're eating it, you've already forgotten what went into it. // I separated the layers with store-bought lemon curd (get the runnier kind, versus the thick gel), and then made the "Golden Orange Frosting" from this site. I love them both with this cake. // This was my first time making the cake, and from preheating to the last washed dish, this took me 3 hours on the dot. // I would absolutely make this again.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
Perfetto. I love having this stuff prepared in large batches to keep in the cabinet. A great balance with lots of heat. Not a single bad thing to say about it.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
Devastatingly good. Followed the recipe more or less to a tee. Just made it into muffins (about 40 minutes in the oven).

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2013
I don't understand why this is so good, but it is. I was honestly weirded out by the sour cream thing, but followed it anyway given the reviews.... SO delicious. WHAT is the story? The only differences I made were halving the sauce, not adding in meat or onions, and using a cheese blend on top (because that's what I had in the house). I cannot wait to eat the leftovers!

Spinach and Leek White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
This was a great soup. I found myself skeptical, but as soon as I went to eat it (after a fair amount of salting, granted), wow, impressive! The cumin blends in really nicely, and I loved that there were various textures--the leeks, the spinach, the beans, the couscous. I felt really full after, and it felt like a healthy full.

Chef John's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2014
Made this for a barbecue and got rave reviews on it. It was relatively easy for a more intense mac and cheese. Used fresh thyme from my garden. (Update: I made this a second time with fat free milk. Tasted just as delicious.)

Quick Zesty Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
Wow! Surprisingly delicious! Such a simple dish, but really tasty. The beans get coated beautifully and the pecans make for some nice variation. To those of you who wonder if you'll like this if you don't also like Old Bay, you will! I generally don't like Old Bay (I know it from Five Guys' fries), but my fiance loves it so I made this dish, an we BOTH loved it.

Tzatziki Sauce (Yogurt and Cucumber Dip)

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
REALLY nice. The overnight straining was easy to do and I was astonished how much water came out. The end result is thick, tasty, and refreshing. I'll definitely be making this again!

Challah I

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2013
This came out so well! I made a big round loaf (halved the recipe, braided it, made the braid into a circle) and added in cherries.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
This was great! Spicy, flavorful, and filling. I did not use two full cups of water, more like 1/3 of a cup, and I half-mashed both the beans and the sweet potato to give some texture. My only gripe:the tortilla got crisp in the oven.
