Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
I used this recipe SO much last year but when I came to make it again this fall I couldn't remember where I'd found the recipe... what a disaster! I am SOO happy to have found it again because it is phenomenal... so easy, so delicious and never fails to impress! Thank you soooo much!

Breaded, Fried, Softly Spiced Tofu

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
This was great! I was pleasantly surprised. It was easy and fairly fast. I had no sage so I used thyme. The kids liked it.

Amazingly Delicious Whole-Grain Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2008
This was actually pretty good and quite easy. I doubled the recipe and did an 11x8 pan so it took a while longer to cook. I also used all whole wheat flour and soy milk rather than butter milk. I didn't include the nuts of chocolate chips and it was fine without them. Although I did have some leftover chocolate frosting from another recipe so I used that to frost them and it was very yummy! The brownies were soft and chewy - not cakey. I used two whole eggs, rather than four egg whites (so it upped the fat content but was just easier to make).

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Yes, very good indeed. I added a little more milk so the blueberries would be easier to mix in and I made 12 muffins.

Gaye's Microwave Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
I have tried a few microwave fudge recipes and I like this one the best - it was creamy and smooth and very easy to prepare. I had trouble with lumps from when the butter melted and boiled next to the icing sugar while the rest of the butter was still melting. So next time I may try melting the butter and milk first and sifting in the cocoa and icing sugar.

Pie Crust III

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
This is now my stanmdard go-to recipe for pie crust - it has become a firm family favorite! I usually add 1 tsp salt and, if it is for a sweet pie, 1 tbsp sugar.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
These were good...raisins would be a nice addition. I really liked the spices and the icing complemented well. I did half vanilla icing and half carob icing (same as vanilla recipe but add 2-3 tbsp carob powder). The carob icing was a big hit.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
Mmmm... excellent! Very quick and easy. They are your definitive "brownies" - dense and rich - not too cakey but not gooey either - just perfect!

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
Fabulous! I used it for Black Forest Cake II (this site) and it complemented it very well. Super easy to whip up but it has a nice texture and frosts really well.

Black Forest Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
This is a fair amount of work, but not as much as the traditional method of preparing Black Forest cake. If you find the kirsch too strong, mix it half and half with either cherry juice (from the can) or simple syrup (1 cup sugar dissolved in 3/4 cup water). Be careful if you use frosting rather than whipped cream to cover the cake as it is heavier and this cake is quite delicate and may not hold up under the pressure...learnt that one the hard way! And there is a typo in the recipe somewhere with the butter frosting ingredients - there was not enough liquid to mix all the sugar in - I just added a splash of milk and it worked great. Other than that, delicious!

Raspberry Pain au Chocolat (Raspberry Chocolate Croissants)

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
Sooooo great! We have dairy allergies in our family, so I make my own chocolate spread with about 1 large bar of dark chocolate and a tablespoon or two of non-dairy margerine - melt together and mix. This is such an easy, quick and delicious recipe that never fails to impress!

Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
This is great! This is the only way we eat Acorn Squash now. It is a great last-minute meal with very little prep - good for when you have run out of meat. As other reviewers have said, it does make a lot of stuffing - but as the photos show, you can pile it up over the squash to make generous servings. Thanks for a delicious recipe!

Chocolate Puffed Wheat Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
Yummy! As other reviews suggested, I changed the quantities to 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup honey (rather than corn syrup), 1/2 cup butter, and added 1 tsp of vanilla. I also substituted 1 cup of raisins for one cup of the puffed wheat. And I mixed about 1/4 cup white sugar, 1 tsp cocoa powder and 1/2 tsp cinnamon and spread it over the bottom of the prepared pan before adding the puffed wheat mixture.They were just delicious! Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
Delicious! Like other reviewers, I used just 3 eggs. I also added about 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and used all brown sugar. It was rich and delicious - perfect comfort food and a great way to use up old bread. I found that it took a little longer in the oven than the recipe suggested (10 mins extra). Thanks for this awesome recipe - easy and impressive!

Oven Pancake with Apples

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
Delicious! I added 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp brown sugar and a pinch of salt to the batter. I also sliced the apples very thinly so they cooked quicker. Next time, I will double the amount of apple - that's the best part! Thanks for this great recipe.
