The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
With all the positive reviews I was SO looking forward to these cookies but I was really let down. A lot of reviews thought this was "too sticky" but I had just the opposite problem, this dough was too stiff and dry that we almost lost our BIG Kitchen Aid Mixer. That was the clencher for me. When I smelled something burning and then saw smoke I had to stop. I am going to try again, taking all the suggestions for changes into consideration. With all the positive reviews I have to believe that there is a great recipe in here somewhere.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2014
Ive never been able to successfully ice my cookies but this icing is a definite 10. It's easy and it's very versatile. Just changing out the extract flavor I can easily make many flavors and colors for the kids to ice creatively. Very nice and tastes great too!!

Carrot Pineapple Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
I have a carrot cake recipe I've used for 29 years and I make it every year for my sons b-day because it's his very flavorite. But I'm always looking for new things to add and I was excited to try this since I love carrot cake and I love pineapple. I thought it would be moist and have a great flavor. I was really disappointed. This was the thickest cake batter I've ever made. I baked in 2-8" round cake pans at 325 convection. I knew I'd have to adjust the time so I set my initial timer to 50 minutes. I checked the cake at 20 min and it had risen really beautifully so I was really looking happy with it. At 40 minutes, the top of the cake was almost burnt, the cake had fallen in the center and the insides were still very wet. It just didnt look good or appetizing. The range was here when we bought the house 2 years ago and we have found that the oven is actually about 25 degrees off. Setting at 325 in actuality is 300 for our oven etc.... I turned the temp down another 25 degrees to try to get the cake to quit getting dark and to give the insides a chance to finish baking. At 50 minutes the toothpick came out almost perfectly clean so I pulled it. After letting it cool a bit I tried to turn the cake out onto cooling racks to finish the process. Both cakes fell apart. The cake is really dense and heavy and the top, bottom and sides are all very dry. I think the creator needs to hone this recipe a bit and give it another try. Somethings off here. Not a keeper for me.

Chef John's Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
These were delicious! The flavor was full and savory and had all the right seasoning levels to let you really enjoy the meatball itself. We made bigger meatballs which allowed us to cut them in half and have delicious meat ball subs. This recipes is definitely a keeper and one we'll be sure to use often.

Slow Cooker Creamed Corn

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
I made this as part of our Easter dinner and everyone LOVED IT. I'm not a big fan of full, rich sauces on my veggies but this is an exception! I used fresh corn and full far versions of the dairy products. Next time I'll try with low fat dairy products and swap Splenda for the sugar. Hope it's equally as wonderful. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe,,

Linda's Blue Cheese Dressing

I have been looking for a blue cheese dressing that tasted like what is served at Champps Restaurant and this is SOOOO close. This is easy to make and is delicious! One warning though ... it's addictive!
