Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
Amazing! I used one large loaf and 2 small ones and they all turned out great. Great right out of the oven, but I had to hide a loaf from myself because I couldn't stop eating it and found it a week later and it was equally as good (and still fresh!) Definitely a keeper.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
Awesome! I am a serious baker and have been searching for years for the Perfect sugar cookie recipe..Found it! I followed the reviews suggestions and added 1 c. powder sugar to receipe and an extra teaspoon of vanilla as well as the zest of one lemon, chilled in fridge overnight and rolled out with p. sugar not flour. They kept their cutout shapes, didn't puff up, tasted amazing. This is it, look no further. Thanks for posting!!!

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
I made this for Christmas brunch and I can't remember when I've gotten more compliements about something I made. I used sliced Hawaiian bread and no Grand M. (didn't have any) and flipped it over on a platter when it came out of the oven. It even sat out and got cold and everyone still loved it. I paid attention to the reviews and made sure to not overcook. I will definitely make again. Thanks for the receipe!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: May 13, 2007
Delish! I put currants in half and topped with a cream wash and cinnamon/sugar sprinkle and lemon zest in the other half, cream wash and followed with a powder sugar/lemon juice glaze. To die for. Easy and fabulous. Definitely a permanant resident in my recipe box. Thanks Grandma J!

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
Have been looking for a great sweet potato pie receipt forever…this is it. I used half cup brown sugar and half white and fresh grated nutmeg and it's just like my grandmother used to make.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
Excellent. I used one onion, half a package of celery including leaves, 4 carrots and sauteed with the spices and a couple of bay leaves. I threw in some additional dried italian seasoning and some additional garlic and salt and pepper with sautee, added lentils to coat and then added the tomatos, veg. broth and let it go for about 75 mins. Added spinich and balsamic vinegar and I have to say it is one of the best "meaty" lentil soups I've had. I would highly recommend.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
Excellent apple pie where you actually taste the apples. I put a dash of cinnamon with the apples and made the carmel sauce too soon so it had started to harden before trying to pour it. So it tasted great, but didn't look very pretty. Be sure to make it well in advance of serving so it has time to sit and gel and you won't have an issue with runniness. This is not a hot out of the oven type pie. If you want that, you can mix in some tapioca with the apples before putting into the shell and that should take care of the extra liquid..but if you let it absorb back into the apples, you get this great very apple-y flavor and just heat it in the micro to serve if you want hot.

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
Great recipe. I didn't have a 7x11 pan so used a 9x13. It worked ok but the layers of the mascarpone custard and whipped cream were a little thin. Next time I will either make larger quantities or use a smaller pan. It made for a lighter, fluffier Tiramisu than the more dense typical. I used an electric mixer to mix the yolks and sugar until it was thick and then when cool used same mixer to add cheese. Everyone enjoyed it and said "it wasn't too sweet." Definitely could taste the various flavors of coffee, rum and mascarpone. I will make it again.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
Really good! Followed receipe exactly, except didn't have banking powder, rose just fine without it. I only mixed bannana mixture together with a fork, so left nice large chunks of bannana in the muffins and then mixed that with flour with fork and let sit for a minute to absorb any unmixed flour. Made 6 large muffins. Piled topping on top. Easy, great use for old bananas (mine were black) and yummy. The topping can also be used on top of fruit pies.

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
I read through the reviews and decided to make the cake exactly as directed. I made the frosting while the cakes were baking and freaked out when I tasted it, quite sour and not typical, but since I was out of powdered sugar I carried on. You do have to beat the frosting for a while to get it to thicken up enough. I finished making the cake and it sat in the fridge overnight for a birthday party the next day and the flavors had mellowed and combined with the cake very nicely. That strong sour taste alone disapears and compliments the chocolate once all put together. It is a dense cake, but everyone at the party enjoyed it. I'll keep making my choc. cake from Epicurious for those that like a lighter crumb chocolate cake, but for the real chocoholics, this is a keeper.

Strawberry Torte

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
Very tasty. I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and cooked down a pack. of frozen straberries with cornstartch and sugar. The only issue is it was sort of cloudy, I can see why just the juice would be a prettier red. I covered the entire top with whole strawberries and glazed with melted marmalade for a shiny finish and piped whipped cream around. Super good. It would also be good in a triffle dish, just layered. Oh, also added fresh sliced strawberries in the layers.

Butter Cream Frosting I

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2007
Very good frosting, my only issue is that the yolks make it a yellowish color when finished, not a pretty white like a real butter cream. The taste and texture are wonderful however. I might try whites next time or a whole egg instead of yolks to see if the color is lighter.

German Apple Pancake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Very good, but I think less eggs and cooking the apples in butter first might be helpful. But very close to the Orig. Pancake house receipe.

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
This is the basic receipe turned around for Creme Brule French Toast. The butter, brown sugar, cs mix goes on the bottom of the pan followed by the 1" or thicker challah or hawaiian bread and the egg and half and half mixture is on the bottom. I didn't try it this way, but the Creme Brule French toast is spectacular.

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
With so many great reviews, I expected the cake to knock my socks off. It was very good and everyone enjoyed it, but not the best ever. I did change it and add a little baking powder and made it in a 9 by 13" pan and baked for the recommended time. I think it might be better with the layers or cupcakes which I'll try again. I might also add a little more pineapple.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
Very good. I used half cup butter and a quarter cup butter crisco. Also I grabbed the wrong measuring cup so I added 2 and a third cups flour instead of 2 and a quarter and the dough was a perfect consistency, rolled into balls great and cooked very consistent. Lovely cookies, but my personal preference is for something with a little more "bite" and might try again with some chopped up candied ginger in the dough or a glaze of some sort. All in all, an excellent receipe.

Paleo Lemon Tarts

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
Whole almonds in the food processor with dates and some coconut make a better crust…don't grind the almonds down too fine…press into cupcake liners and put in fridge or freezer until firm…much better than baking. For filling, some liquid stevia can be added for a sweeter tart.
