Glazed Lemon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
5 stars for the cake LOVED it!!! It was delicious, the glaze however I just couldn't make myself pour over it, it was way too wet, maybe I did something wrong, but I used "lemon glaze" instead, and the 2 went together beautifully. Thank you for this cake recipe, just what I was looking for. :) But a note to make, make sure you listen to the grease and FLOUR part, I had a new bundt pan and it said that flouring wasn't necessary --well it was for this recipe, the cake finally came out with some effort and no longer looked very pretty, but tasted excellent, just glad I wasn't serving it for guests. Lemon Glaze: 1 1/2 tb lemon juice, 1 1/2 c powdered sugar, 1 tb sugar, 3 tb melted butter, 1/2 t lemon extract, and yellow food coloring.

Chicken Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
I did make a lot of minor changes to this, but used it as a basic idea, especially for the length of cooking time. I used fresh carrots and potatoes cut up into small pieces, 1/2 a can each of green beans, corn, and peas. Also I used the "veggie pot pie crust" on this site which was amazing and added great flavor to the pot pie. I also used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup instead since that is what I had, but this was AWESOME!! Will be making almost weekly, keeps well and is great reheated for lunches. Thanks so much! :)

One Bowl Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
Note: if your deciding between this recipe and one bowl chocolate cake III, they are exactly the same. I gave it 4 stars because I wasn't very impressed when I made it, but as someone else mentioned it is better the next day and best on the 3rd day. Day 3 it is 5 stars for sure. Great cake to make ahead of time for parties when you have lots of other stuff to make, since it is best on it's 3rd day. Thanks for this great recipe. Also, just to warn you, it looks ready before the boiling water and you therefore might forget it, just a note to keep in mind.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
This is really good, a few notes however, DO NOT use a stand mixer for this recipe, it will not reach all parts of the cream cheese and will leave chunks. Also I read others used pumpkin pie mix instead of the puree, I did this by accident and the person buying it no longer liked it, the pie mix has condensed sweetened milk in it and adds too much liquid and makes the top more a pumpkin pie over a cheesecake, make sure that is something you want before doing that, if you use the pumpkin puree both layers with be a cheesecake consistency but the top one will taste like pumpkin, everyone I've made it for loves it this way and didn't like it with the pie mix.

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
I didn't change a thing, my husband rated them among the top 10 best things he has EVER had, someone else described them as heaven in a cookie and I don't care for pecans or cranberries, but these are one of my favorite things. Great tip: Make several batches at once for yourself, (you will want them, I did this when I knew I had 4 months of bed rest coming up and would want some of these) each batch in a ziploc bag, then when time comes to make them, add the vanilla and butter, mash up still in bag then add room temperature egg and mash again. Taste best when making 14-16 large bulky cookies, smash them down a bit, and bake 11-13 minutes, if you take them out too soon they will look like you did something wrong and not taste good either.

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
This was described as "the best thing ever" by several of the people I sent samples to, and I then received a special order for it from 4 different people. This is a BEAUTIFUL cheesecake, great even if it cracks (which shouldn't happen if you don't overbeat after you add the eggs) since you can cover it with the pecans and apples. I doubled the recipe except for the apples, I used about 2 1/2 very large MacIntosh apples very thinly sliced, spread evenly over the top then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, and the pecans. I drizzled caramel over the top when it was done cooking. I followed the instructions given by NOELC, some stated above and the cook for 70 minutes then leave in the oven for 45-60 minutes with the oven off and the door cracked. Thank you for this recipe.

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
great base, I added some milk then rolled them out and cut them into circles, then layered the circles into a stack of 4 with butter between each, then baked in the toaster oven for 10 min on 350. Hubby loved it! thank you :)

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
AMAZING --- this was so good, I served it at a party and everyone said how great it was, yum yum :) will make again. Only note to make was that in my springform pan (only the 2nd time used) butter or something leaked out the bottom and onto the coils making smoke. So I put a cookie sheet on the rack under it, and to avoid a smoky taste I opened the oven door a crack and cooked it longer, still turned out fantastic, and it might have only leaked because I put a little extra butter in the crust, just beware in case. Thank you for a great recipe.

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
WOW!!! (notice the 3 exclamation points) This was sooooo good, I added some BBQ sauce and a few big pieces of green pepper, and didn't add the dijon, it was fantastic. I made sandwiches using "french bread rolls to die for" and it went very nicely together, will be making this again next week for a party. Thank you for the deliciousness :)

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
I personally hate pecans and therefore didn't even try this, but I made a bunch and sold them at a local high scale specialty grocery store and when we did taste tests everyone LOVED it, and some said it was the best pecan pie they'd ever tasted. They also loved the simple ingredients without trans fats that are caused by corn syrup. It did look different then the one show as the main picture at the time I got the recipe. And for anyone interested this recipe actually seemed to improve by quadrupling, didn't compromise flavor, texture, or anything.

Maple Nut Cake

This is really good with the maple frosting, and stays good without losing any flavor or texture for several days. A nice side item with breakfast. Thanks for the recipe :)

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
My husband described these as "the best chocolate chip cookies he has ever had" I suggest watching them VERY closely however. They look like they have several minutes left and will quickly overcook within 1-2 minutes from then. But they are still good, just much crispier that way, not something that you should make when you are doing several other things at the same time. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us :)

Hawaiian Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
This is truly one of the best things I've ever had. I made it along with a ton of other things for a party and this is what everyone raved about. I left out the cherries and it was perfect, and keeps good for a long time, if it lasts. I will be making this weekly for myself and everyone who is begging for more of it. Thank you for such an awesome recipe. :)

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
These were good, but I doubled the sauce part, and needed to cook mine (which were even cut smaller) about double the time, I will make again using a higher temp as suggested by another, and mix at least once during baking, but I had a sleeping baby on me and couldn't do that. But they were good and with a few adjusts as mentioned would be even better, thank you for this recipe :)

Carrot Cake III

Awesome, this was sooo good, perfect, I sprinkled mine with some powdered sugar and it was fantastic, I preferred this over the chocolate cake I made the same day. It was worth the grating carrots experience.
