Chewy Caramel

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
I covered the caramels in chocolate. The second time I cooked them exactly like the recipe called for with a thermometer and they were too sticky, they there stuck in my teeth. It is easy to make, but hard to get the right consistancy.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Just so everyone knows, these are SUPPOSE to be more cake-like cookie. These cookies are extra special in my opinion, these are by far the best. I was using a similar recipe until I found this one and I like this one much more. I added a bit more nutmeg, clove, allspice. I highly recommend these, I can't wait to bake them this fall for potlucks. You can also add a drop or two of orange coloring to get a deeper color of cookie. I like to refrigerate mine and eat them cold.

Oreo™ Cookie Bark

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
I make this a little differently. Melt one Bakers box of white chocolate and when melted stir in a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter until melted. Melt on box of Bakers semi sweet chocolate and add crushed oreos to the melted chcocolate. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and alternate the white and brown chocolate. One all chocolate is on the cookie sheet, take a butter knife or spoon and swirl the two chocolate mixtures together who it has a marbeled look. I get TONS of compliments and attention from this treat, people are amazed.

Fruit Pizza II

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
Fantastic recipe! I put only strawberries on top because I am picky about fruit and I doubled the recipe and baked it in a jelly roll pan. I also made the topping with cream cheese and marshmellow creme, a sprinke of vanilla and powdered sugar. I highly recommend this simple and delicious treat. All of my husbands freind's were raving about this at his UFC party tonight.

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
This is the second time I have made this. I never add eggs because I don't like that part, but I do sprinkle ginger powder as per someone elses advice on here and I added onions, bamboo shoots, water chesnuts, steamed broccoli, peas and carrots. I use a few tablespoons of sesame oil and about 3/4 bottle of Kikkoman soy sauce. (5 ounce bottle) I steam my jasmine rice a day prior....almost a must.

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
Great buttercream recipe, I only needed 1/4 of what this recipe called for so I adjusted accordingly. I scooped the finished product into a candymaking melting bottle and melted the icing a bit and then decorated a giant chocolate chip cookie with it. Worked perfectly.

Tzatziki II

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
Great recipe! I prefer mine more plain and I just use Greek Plain Yogurt from Trader Joes and cucumber and a dash of dill. I also eat this with Naan Indian Bread which tastes like pita bread. I can't get enough of this lately........I also shred my cucumber ahead of time to reduce the water. Using thr greek yogurt helps because it is more thick too.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
I highly recommend using milk chocolate and not semi-sweet. I honestly cannot rave enough about this fantastic recipe! It is way better than a Reese's. I will make a full batch to take to parties or events and I make half batches for myself to enjoy throughout the week and pour it into a glass pie pan. I usually add more chocolate to the top, mmmmmmmm......

Yia Yia's Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
This is my favorite tzatziki sauce. I found Greek Plain Yogurt at Trader Joes, it has a great thick consistancy. I sprinkle some dill on top when finished and I eat this with their pita bred or Naan Indian Bread also found at Trader Joes. So tasty!

A Peanutty S'more

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
This is much better than using a plain chocolate bar. I will recommend using full size Reese's cup to everyone from now on, they were delicious and made this taste extra special.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
I really liked this recipe. It is light tasting and I used organic seasoned multigrain croutons that I smashed up for the topping and the croutons have a great taste that really made this for me. I followed the recipe exactly except I uzed mini ziti noodles instead of macaroni because I was out. They are basically the same size without the bend. Sprinkle some fresh cracked pepper on top and it is ready to go!

Glazed Lemon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
This is very light tasting, to the point you can barely taste the lemon at all. I added much more lemon juice after reading others comments and next time I will add even more. I made the icing with powdered sugar and because the cake is so light tasting, went heavy with the icing and I added a lot of fresh lemon juice to it. It really makes up for the cake. Just make some minor adjustments, great recipe.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
Good recipe. Very light tasting, I did not roll them in sugar instead opting to put icing on them. I use a cookie scoop and roll them into balls, but I needed to flatten them out because they don't really do so on their own, just letting you know.

Butter Icing for Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
Good recipe, the icing does set up quickly which is great for immediate storage. I keep a steaming pot of water nearby to rest my mixing bowl on to prevent the icing from setting up on me as well as my mixer. This is really an excellent recipe for sugar cookies. I used my pastry bag and tips to pipe it onto the cookies.

Chocolate Ganache Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
Wow, wow, wow! My first time making chocolate ganache. I melted butter and heavy whipping cream on stove top until boiled and poured onto chocolate shavings in a stainless steel bowl and let sit like that for 3-5 minutes and then I mixed with a whisk. I will add a photo soon, fantastic recipe. I used this on the chocolate cake I recipe from this site.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
Perfect recipe, I made it exactly as the recipe follows. I was able to bake a 9X13 and a square 8X8 cake from the batter. I made the chocolate ganache icing for the larger cake and I dusted the other with powdered sugar, tastes just like this cake that I buy for $6.00 a slice at a nearby chocolatier.

Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
It is a good recipe. I am not a fan of peanut butter cookie, but I made them for my husband and he really likes them. The are soft anf chewy and the batter is light and tastes great. I left half of mine plain and the other half I melted milk chocolate in a candy bottle and drizzled chocolate on top.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
PLEASE READ! You MUST leave about 2 inches of room around the side for the dough to expand while cooking or it will spill over. This comes out perfectly! I used a very large pizza pan (16 inch) that I bought just for making large cookies like this and that way when I spread the dough out (not too thick), I have enough room to allow the dough to expand. I top with store bought chocolate icing and the buttercream icing from this site because I found those two types closely resemble what the mall cookies taste like. *Update* When I spread the dough on the pan, I add extra dough around the edges/side, because the cook will expand and as the cookie spreads, the edges will thin out and become more brown otherwise. Make sure to add extra dough just to the sides. Using a large pan and adding extra dough around the sides, I still have a little but of extra cookie dough leftover.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
When my french vanilla cake cooled enough, I broke it into pieces and mixed with Dove Milk Chocolate Ice Cream Topping instead of frosting. (I read another review and someone decided to use the Dove, so I tried it.) I mixed well and I took a cookie scoop and scooped out and rolled in my hands until the ball was nice and smooth and held together. I rolled each ball in my hands for a few seconds each and I dropped them onto a baking sheet to freeze. Try using a Wilton lollipop stick in each one for easier dipping. The second time I made these I used leftover red velvet cake and cold chocolate ganache and I dipped them into tempered milk chocolate.

Spinach Cheese Manicotti

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
Great recipe, no complaints. I added more garlic powder, oregano, and pepper to the recipe and I only had Muenster cheese, so that is what I used, excellent!
