Shortbread Supreme

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2014
This is a very good, easy shortbread. I like my browned a bit more, because they are crispy when cooled. They held their shape really well when use cut outs. Very impressed.

Connie's Zucchini 'Crab' Cakes

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
I made these exactly to the instructions, but baked them instead of frying. They were a bit dry and could have used a sauce on them. But all in all, very good!!!

Mexican Zucchini Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
I did add/modify, but this is a soup that is VERY adaptable. I added 32oz box of chicken broth and instead of the stewed tomatoes, I added 2 cans of Rotel and omitted the chiles. I had already shredded all of my zucchini for baking, so I added about 3 cups of shredded zucchini and a can of black beans (could have added 2 but only had one on had) for added protein. Instead of processed cheese (which would have melted better) I used shredded mexican cheese (about 4 cups), which did clump up some, but I still think it tasted great. Lastly, I omitted the cilantro since I didn't have it on hand. I LOVED this for our first fall day rainy weather soup!!!

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
I like the taste of the recipe, but had a hard time with the dough. Even after an hour in the fridge, it was still soft. I split it into 4ths and put in freezer. I left the others in the freezer while I worked with it a section at a time. I could not get them off of my silpat, so I rolled out on there, cut them and left them there to bake. Even after 2 roll outs, the dough was sticky. When I made this recipe, it only yielded 20 cookies. I needed 30 for my son's class and didn't buy anymore butterscotch pudding, so I guess we will have to just eat them and I will make them something else.

Watermelon Sangria

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
I noticed that the ingredients and directions are a bit off, so I made it with 9 cups of blended watermelon and then added the other 3, for a total of 12 cups altogether. I thought it was very good. If you wan to turn it into a spritzer, you can add sprite or 7-up. I am not sure how there are 16 servings, because it made about 3/4 of a gallon which is not enough for 16. So I doubled it for a concert and will take it to a concert for tailgating!!!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
I followed the recipe exact, except only added 1 1/4 cups of chocolate chips, because my husband doesn't like a lot of chips in his cookies (I know..he is weird). I used the medium scoop from Pampered Chef and baked them for 13 minutes, then cooled on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to cooling rack. Cookies were a bit flat. They tasted great, but I was hoping for a thicker cookie. I did not chill my dough before baking, maybe that would have made them thicker. This made 19 cookies with the medium scoop. **UPDATE** I made these again and added 3/4 cup of pecans, but left the chocolate chips still at about 1 cup to 1 1/4 cup. I scooped out the dough with the pampered chef medium scoop onto my pans lined with silpat and slipped them into the freezer for about 10 minutes, then baked them for 15-17 minutes at 350 until golden. I don't think that freezing them made a difference. Maybe I need to freeze them longer. Also, maybe I need to use a larger scoop. **update again** used the large pampered chef scoop and it made big cookies, the ones you get at a bakery. Had to bake them for 20 minutes though. BEAUTIFUL. will probably try margerine next as suggested for thicker cookies.
