Holly Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
this taste delicious. not too sweet, but why isn't it crunchy? did i add the cereal in too quickly? am i supposed to wait until the marshmallow mixture cools a bit? (my niece made this and it stayed crisp for hours)

Banana Flips

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
after 17 minutes in the oven, the cakes were still very battery. i had to go to the store so i told my husband to check it in 15 minutes. it was a little over baked but it gave a nice crisp on the sides. i was a little hesitant to make the filling... especially because it called for flour and there's no cooking it, but it turned out really great. i didn't add all the milk, i just kinda stopped on the consistency i preferred. it was really thick and separated the layers of the cake nicely. for something optional, i heated chocolate fudge and caramel as drizzles for my guests. they enjoyed it... even the ones that were very conscious about their weight and sugar intake. they all had a second serving.

Pina Colada Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
i think the taste evaporated with the smell. while this was baking, the house smelled wonderful - coconut, rum, pineapple... delicious. when it was done and chilled though, it was just too bland. you could sometimes taste the rum, and the pineapple, but the coconut is no where to be tasted. (i could sprinkle it with shredded coconut, but we don't like packaged coconut. :()

Country Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
the raw batter was delicious, and so was the baked one... but i could feel the sweetness between my teeth with each bite i take. i made two batches. with and without nuts. i prefer the one without... and the raisins were very complimenting. -- update -- i made this again, and it tasted so different from the first ones i made. i used pumpkin pie mix in the can the first time, and pure pumpkin this time around. the second is nothing compared to the first.

Cranberry-Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
my friend made some pumpkin cookies and everyone said it was the best ever... obviously, they haven't tried these. (a sugar glaze makes these cookies better.)

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
i've tried many banana bread recipes, and i think this is by far the dryest. i made another batch with bananas and pine-apple, the flavor was better, but there's something missing... and it was still dry.

Brigadeiro

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
i was expecting something firmer. the candy was moldable, but it was way too soft. it's so soft you don't even need to bite it, or even use your teeth to eat it. it tastes good, especially if you can get past the soft texture. but then again, i can only eat one.

Hot Cocoa Marshmallow Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
the frosting is very light and airy, and fluffy. i guess it kinda taste like hot cocoa... but a very plain and boring hot cocoa - hot water and a little sweetened cocoa powder.

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
i think the dressing is fantastic. it's a little sweet, a little zingy from the vinegar, a little mustardy, it all blends well. i truly love it... just not on macaroni. i think the dressing would be a star on potatoes... to make potato salad. also, next time i'll just add a splash of vinegar because it made my dressing runny rather than creamy. --- UPDATE --- i tried the dressing again with potatoes and it was heavenly! all i did was decrease the sugar portion to about half a cup... yum yum. (just a note - after a day, the sweetness cuts down.)

Butterscotch Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
man this was good. instead of butterscotch chips, i used chocolate chips and added only about half of what it's called. the taste was wonderfully complimenting. you can taste everything! all the tastes are working together to make this delicious and easy (cup)cake.

Campbell's Kitchen Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
out of the three puff pastry desserts i made, this was the least desired. i actually made this for my brother in law because he enjoys peanut butter, but he only ate half. i had to sprinkle mini chocolate chips on mine because the peanut butter was just too overpowering.

Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
i too had an unfirm frosting. because i have made numerous cream cheese frosting similar to this, my theory is that it depends on the cream cheese. sometimes (even if it's not expired) the cream cheese starts turning into separated curds and whey. i had this consistency today (it's philadelphia cc), and attempted to make a frosting. it was too wet, so i added 3 oz white chocolate dry pudding mix and splashes of milk... and mixed. the taste was delicious but i wanted back my tangy zing, so i added whip cream. result? the best of both worlds - a little bit of white chocolate, and a little bit of cream cheese. yum yum.

Carrot Cake IV

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
these are really good. i added a half shredded carrot for a more home-made taste. i layered the cake in four and filled it with cream cheese frosting; the cake really held well. altogether, the taste reminded me of "pumpkin roll cake" in the site. i will never labor for carrot cake scratch anymore! , and probably will never make "pumpkin roll cake" again. thank you, submitter!

Wonderful Banana Cake

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
these are wonderful. they're fluffy and moist. i made two batches. one with marble cake and the other with yellow. the one with marble cake, i separated the two flavors and made the chocolate cake into an inner layer (i was using a bake and fill set). i also put chocolate morsels and nuts into the inner layer. it was fantastic. the marble cake was much more enhanced in the banana flavor, even when eaten without the chocolate layer. in addition, i took the advice of others and frosted the cake with a mixture of pudding and whip cream. the frosting is delicious alone, and the cake is too, but they do not compliment each other. the frosting is too light for this cake. maybe a cream cheese frosting would be better.
