Rum Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
I have made this recipe for years - except I do mine a little differently.. I take the cake out of the oven poke holes in it and pour the glaze all over the cake while still in the pan. Then I let it sit at least two hours before inverting it. The whole cake is infused with the glaze and the top is nice and crunchy.

No Peek Irish Beef Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
For a basic beef stew recipe, this is very good. I did have to change it though. I tossed the beef in 3 Tbsp. regular flour with lemon pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder. I browned it with a little olive oil. I put it in the crock pot (because I needed my oven for other baking) and it turned out fine. The other change I made was using 1/2 c. V-8 and 1/2 c. bloody mary mix. I thought it would give it a little kick, and it did. In the last about 20 minutes, I added a cup of frozen peas for some color. Along with lots of salt and pepper, it turned out great. This recipe is a great base to build off of and add whatever you like for flavors!

Ginger Snaps II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
I made two kinds of ginger snaps - both from this site. The first were "mom's ginger snaps" and the second recipe was this one. Hands down, this one is the better of the two. The only thing I will do next time is add about 1/4 tsp salt instead of 1/2 like it calls for. That's just a personal preference, though. I also added about 1/4 tsp of cloves for added kick. All-in-all, this is a very good recipe!!!!

Berry Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: May 29, 2005
I used blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and rhubarb. All-in-all it turned out very yummy. I used about 8 cups of fruit, so I doubled the flour and used about 1 1/4 c. sugar. I usually don't make berry pies and have learned my lesson to let it sit overnight before cutting it. I couldn't help myself, cut into it warm and it was VERY runny - but the next morning it was all set up, so I think I had about the right measures of flour and sugar.. Just didn't have the patience to wait to eat it!!! The crust is perfect. I will use that recipe again for other pies. It's just the right mix of crunchy and flaky.

Orange Fluff I

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2003
I made this for a baby shower and it was a split reaction. People were asking what the chunks were and some cringed when I said cottage cheese. I admit, I didn't drain the pineapple and I should have. I thought the taste was great but it was too runny. To stiffen it up, I added coconut and it tasted even better. Next time, I will drain the cottage cheese and the pineapple along with the oranges.

Sopapillas

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
These are just like restaurant quality sopapillas! I couldn't believe how easy they were to make! I just sifted the ingredients into my mixer bowl, cut in the shortening and then used the dough hook while adding the water. I had to add maybe an extra Tbsp or two of water. I made the mix into 8 balls then rolled them and cut into quarters. I fried them in about 3 inches of oil that was exactly 375 degrees and they turned out fantastic! Super puffy and light!

Seven Minute Frosting II

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
This is really good frosting. I made it to top an angel food cake for a birthday. My dad said it tasted just like when he was a little boy, and the kids loved it. It was a little sweet for me, and I added only 1 3/4 c sugar. The only thing about this recipe that I didn't like was that it made way too much frosting for one cake and you can't really save it for another time. I ended up throwing a lot of it away. I would make it again, but probably cut it down by 1/3.

Angel Whispers

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
These are pretty good! I added about 1/4 c. light sour cream to the cookie mixture (because of the dryness factor) and they turned out very good! I undercooked them a bit - they're a little doughy inside, but still very good. I didn't make sandwiches, rather just frosted them with the filling. It's very tasty, although I don't know if I like the stickiness of the filling. I think some sort of lemon icing might be better if you just frost them like I did. But, all-in-all they are yummy little cookies!

Lemon-Lime Crackle Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
I've never made a cookie with such interesting ingredients! These cookies are great - I made them at Christmas time, but they would be great in the summertime. They're super light and refreshing! Don't be afraid to try these because of all the crazy non-traditional ingredients! They are awesome!

Grilled Pheasant Poppers

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Wow, these are great. My husband hunts but I hate eating pheasant so we usually give it away. This is the best pheasant dish I've had. I took it to a NYE party and people really loved them! I live in MN so grilling is tough in the winter... I just baked them and they turned out perfect!

Blueberry Coffee Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2007
Seriously, this is one of the best things I have ever baked (and I bake A LOT!). I made it in a pretty bundt pan and used 3/4 c. of milk. I mixed the blueberries into the batter right before putting it into the pan. I thought it was a perfect amount of streusel in the recipe - enough for a top layer and a middle layer. The streusel seems to have a caramel taste to it - it's just awesome! I can't wait to make this again to share with other people - me, my husband and kids ate this whole one ourselves!

Mom's Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
I should have doubled the spices like everyone else, but I wanted to try the recipe EXACTLY as it was and see if it was any good. It was just ok - the taste just didn't do it for me. They are a nice texture, but don't have enough zip. I will try them again with more spice because the texture is so good. I made smaller balls (more like 3/4") because I like smaller cookies, and it gave me 4 dozen cookies.

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
I have been making salsa like this for years, although I never measure what I put in, I just use what's ready in the garden. I do agree that 5 serranos are too many. I usually use one jalapeno or 2-3 serranos. Also, you MUST try it sometime with lime zest. Zest a whole lime, then take the whole lime's juice. The zing you get is outstanding!

Cherry Tomato Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
This is one of my favorite new summer recipes! I made it for a wedding shower and people couldn't stop talking about how good it was. I added some red onion for color and a little something extra. Next time I make it I'm going to try grilling the corn. What a great way to make use out of wonderful summer veggies!

Butter Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
I have to admit, the look and smell of the sauce before pouring over the chicken made me think twice about possibly ruining a whole chicken. But I had to try it, and I'm glad I did. The seasoning was perfect and the chicken was juicy. Thanks for a great recipe - I wouldn't change a thing.

Red Velvet Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
I thought this cake was pretty good. I was a little disappointed with the texture of it, however. It was pretty heavy - moist, but heavy. Maybe that's how red velvet is supposed to be. Anyhow, the taste was very good. Now to the frosting. I was TERRIFIED to make something that sounded so crazy! Am I glad I did! It's the best frosting I've ever made. This will now be my go-to frosting for cakes. I'm willing to bet that you could add cocoa powder to it and make it chocolate frosting too. The only thing I will try next time is to warm the milk before adding the flour. It seemed like I stood there 15 minutes stirring it - maybe warming it first will cut back on that time.

Margarita Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
This really is a great version of key lime pie. I put it in a tart pan and garnished it with limes and whipped cream. Everyone loved it - I really like the salty crust - after having it, I much prefer it to the regular graham cracker crust.

Chocolate Macaroon Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
These cupcakes are really good - people are really surprised when they bite into them! Personally, I thought they were just ok, but I don't really like almond extract - I'll use coconut next time. BUT everyone else that ate them raved and asked for the recipe. I frosted them with a chocolate ganache and stored them in the refrigerator - it just seemed better with the filling cold.
