Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
I used most of tunisianswife's modifications: I chopped two-thirds of the apples in my food processor and hand-chopped the rest to have some larger chunks. I mixed the apples with 1/2 cup of brown sugar before doing the rest of the steps. I added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg to the dry ingredients, and reduced the white sugar to 1/2 cup (because there was 1/2 cup brown sugar mixed in with the apples). My one complaint is that they really didn't rise all that much, but they are delicious, so I'm giving it 5 stars anyway. I guess I'll play with the amounts of baking powder/soda next time.

Cookie Dough for Ice Cream (Eggless)

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
Since so many other people said it, I used Ginger B's modifications. I doubled the recipe and spread the cookie dough over the top of a batch of K. Anderson's "Fudge Brownies I" from this site, and the result was wonderful! (And I still have some left over to mix with ice cream!)

Buttery Cinnamon Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
As many reviewers suggested, I used butter instead of shortening and also added extra cinnamon. I also tried using milk instead of water in the sauce, but it was still way too watery so I dumped that batch and tried it again with just the sugar, butter, vanilla, and cinnamon (again, I went heavy on the cinnamon). Served warm with ice cream, it was really good -- not dry at all. I will most likely make this again.

Cake Batter Ice Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
It took me 3 attempts (the first two failed because I didn't have a thermometer), but the third time was the charm -- it tastes just like Cold Stone's cake batter ice cream! I highly recommend not trying to make this without a thermometer, because if you leave it on the stove just a little too long, it gets way too thick and ends up the consistency of pudding or frosting. EDIT, November 2010: I still make this all the time, but now I leave out the egg yolks and skip the cooking part entirely. I whisk together all the remaining ingredients and just pour them straight into the ice cream maker. The taste is exactly the same and it's a lot less work.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
This is now my favorite snickerdoodle recipe. I followed it exactly and didn't change a thing, and they were just the right texture: crispy at the edges and chewy in the center, just like the description says.

Cinnamon Chip Apple Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
I used cinnamon-spice instant oatmeal and about 2 cups of apples, and also apple cider (didn't have any apple juice). The cookies are quite yummy. [Edit - September 2010] I have now made these cookies many times, and my only real complaint with them has been that they're so fragile that you can't pick one up without it falling apart. So today, I tried two small modifications: I substituted shortening for half the butter, and I added an extra half-cup of flour. The cookies came out much less fragile this time, with no loss of flavor. I will be making them this way from now on.

Apple Pie Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
The thought of eating raw eggs kind of grosses me out, so I left them out, and I used pecans instead of walnuts; I followed the rest of the recipe as written. It's up there with my all-time favorite ice creams ever!

French Toast Corners

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
I have made this a bunch of times; it's definitely become my standard French toast recipe. However, I did discover the first time I made it that mixing the cinnamon in with the wet ingredients does not allow it to really be distributed very well, so I just sprinkle it on after dipping. Also, I've lately been making this with croissants instead of bread, and that's excellent too.

Coconut Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
I made it almost exactly as the recipe said; my only changes: I added the flaked coconut in the food processor to chop it up more finely, and I added just a little bit of coconut extract. The ice cream has a nice coconut flavor -- yummy!

Fudge Brownies I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
I used this recipe without the walnuts and with the filling from the "Coconut Macaroon Brownies" recipe and it was absolutely wonderful!

Coconut Macaroon Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
As others have said, the rating is mostly for the filling. Since so many people seemed not to like the brownie part, I decided to try the "Fudge Brownies I" recipe with this filling. It was wonderful!

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
Like a lot of other people, I have to say this doesn't come close to living up to the title. They're an okay cookie, but the best? They're not even the best cookie I've made, let alone the best I've ever eaten.

Chicken and Dumplings IV

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
I used chicken broth instead of water, and added some thyme, rosemary, and carrots (we're not big celery fans). I also added some rosemary to the dumplings to give them a little extra flavor, and I didn't bother to remove and shred the chicken -- I just cut it into small pieces before putting it into the pot. I've tried this twice: once with flour and once with cornstarch. Something about the texture wasn't quite right either time, so I doubt I'll make this one again.

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I left out the onions (don't like them) and added a teaspoon of garlic and a bit of rosemary to the dough, but otherwise followed the recipe pretty much exactly, and it tasted wonderful! Will definitely make this again; it was very easy, too.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
I've made this twice now; the first time I added about a teaspoon of vanilla and most of a bag of mini chocolate chips, and the second I added a bit more than a teaspoon of cinnamon and a bag of cinnamon chips. (I omitted the raisins both times.) They came out really wonderful both times. I didn't make any other changes to the recipe.

Cream Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
I followed the other people's suggestions and reduced the salt by about 1/4 teaspoon and increased the baking powder by the same amount. I doubled the recipe and baked it in a bundt pan at 325 for about 45 minutes and it came out really wonderful. Will definitely make again.

Strawberry Marshmallow Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
I had trouble with this -- couldn't find a thermometer, and the stuff in the pot never formed a "wispy thread", so I kept cooking...and it thickened almost to a solid and I had to toss it and start again. I did eventually get it, and it came out okay, but I don't think I'll make this again -- it's just too artificial-tasting.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I added white chocolate chips and chopped macadamias, and they were wonderful! I couldn't stop eating them (though normally I'm pretty good at resisting), and everyone who tried them when I brought some home for Christmas raved about them.
