Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
Thank you Cindy! This is a great cake! I followed the recipe to the letter and it was fantastic! My husband declared it was one of the best things I had ever made. Another reviewer called this "country good" and I couldn't agree more. It reminds me of one of grandma's old recipes passed down for generations. After frosting the cake, I did garnish with toasted walnuts which gave it an extra kick in my opinion.

Whipping Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
This is my favorite pound cake so far! I did make a few modifications to maximize the flavor of the pound cake. I did use the almond flavoring and I doubled the vanilla flavoring. Also, I didn't have "cake flour" so I just double sifted all purpose flour and used 2.5 cups instead of 3 cups. Also for added flavor I did a basic rum glaze (water, sugar, butter, and rum flavoring). I poked tiny holes in the pound cake (with a toothpick) before pouring the glaze over the cake so the flavor would really "sink in." The end result was a very moist, flavorful pound cake. I will definitely be making one of these again and very soon! Happy Baking!

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
I liked this cake, but you really need a dynamic frosting to go with it. May I suggest "Rich Chocolate Frosting" (also on allrecipes.com)?

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
This is a great frosting!I used Hershey's Dark Chocolate Cocoa to make it even richer. This goes well with David's Yellow Cake (also on allrecipes.com), but I have to tell you. The frosting makes the cake. You will be glad you tried it!!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
This is absolutely decadent. It reminds me of an eggplant parmesan I had in a 5 star Italian restaurant in Highlands, NC. I would suggest cutting back to 4 cups of spaghetti sauce and if you like garlic, add it!! You also can get by using just 2 medium-sized eggplants (and leave the peel on, it gives it a much better texture). I also used fresh basil which I believe makes a difference. This really is an easy, impressive dish! Will definitely make again and soon!

Grandma's Egg Custard Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
This is excellent and so easy! I used the pre-made pie shell (I recommend Marie Callender-you can get these in the frozen food section of almost any grocery store)I also added an extra 1/4 tsp of vanilla. Scrumptious!!!

French Toast Fingers

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
These are great and so easy to make!!! One suggestion: Try these with Nutella (it's a chocolate (hazelnut) spread that can be found by the peanut butter in your grocery store.)The strawberry preserves are good, but the Nutella -out of this world!!!!!

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
This is fabulous!! I recently cooked this for my family when we were on vacation. It was a hit!! I used 1 cup of milk (instead of the suggested 2 cups) and 6 eggs (instead of the suggested 8 eggs). You cannot go wrong with this recipe! One user suggested putting pecans on top. While I didn't do this, I will definitely try it with the pecans next time. A real winner!!!!
