This recipe was easy and turned out great. I omitted the sunflower seeds, and added raisins. Love the spices used, i'll definitely use this recipe again!

Sweet-Potato Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
Great recipe! I used yams because i did'nt have sweet potatoes, dried cranberries (soaked them in hot water for a bit first, then drained them of course) instead of raisins, and left out the nuts. I also added a pinch of cloves. Everyone loved them. I'll be making these alot!

Sweet Potato Oranges

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
Great recipe, i did some things differently: used 1/4 c. butter, 1/2 c. brown sugar, used store bought toffee pecans on top. I could'nt get all the of the pulp out of all the oranges, and those turned out better! The ones i cleaned out perfectly to the pith were actually not so great, the bitterness flavored the potato. The oranges i left a little membrane and pulp were delicious!

Peanut Butter Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
Great recipe- i've made it twice, but i leave out the crumb topping, add chocolate chips, and pour it in a bundt pan. When it cools i melt chocolate frosting in the microwave and drizzle it on top. More of a peanutbutter chocolate chip cake.

Vegan Potatoes au Gratin

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
I've made this twice. The first time exactly as the recipe is written- it was great, except it took an extra 45 min to cook. Most likely the potatoes where just too thickly sliced. The second time i sauted the onions with a little garlic and butter- again took an extra 45 minutes to cook. Both ways were delicious!

Dee's Hot Milk Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2008
Really good simple recipe. I've never tasted a "milk cake" before- it really did have a sweet milk flavor to it. I liked the texture alot, similar to angel food cake but WAY easier prep.

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
Fantastic recipe! Moist and rich, it rose really well. I could'nt taste the vinegar at all(unlike some other vegan recipes). I don't recommend using a bundt or tube pan like i did, though. It just wouldn't come out in one peice. Next time i'll use a regular cake pan. Thanks for this recipe! *Update* I've made this many times now for vegans and non-vegans alike, it is by far the best chocolate cake recipe i've found yet, vegan or not!

Roasted Pears with Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
This is a good recipe, but it's better if you peel the pears. I cut down on the butter because it turns out kinda greasy, instead of caramel-y.

Caramel Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
Chewy and rich! My husband (a pecan pie lover) thought it was great. I like the chewy caramel texture much better than the traditional gelatinous fillings.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
Perfect! The only banana bread recipe you'll ever need. I've made it many times, sometimes i add chocolate chips, sometimes nuts/raisins, sometimes chopped peanutbutter kisses. The best!

Cheese and Onion Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
I, as well, browned the onions first instead of boiling them. I also added more cheese. It turned out yummy.

Gingerbread Biscotti

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I started out following the recipe exactly, but it was super wet/sticky and did'nt form a dough. I had to add an extra cup of ap flour, knead it a little, and use a 1/4 cup MORE flour (for each "log")on my hands and to coat it just to form the dough on the cookie sheet.

Eggnog Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
Really good. They have a nice soft texture, the cookie itself doesn't have much flavor so the frosting is key. They spread more than i expected, next time i'll chill the dough before baking, and maybe add some nutmeg to dough for a little extra flavor. **UPDATE** For people having trouble w/ the cookie flattening: the second time i made these i added 1/4Cup extra flour, and put the baking sheet in the fridge after rolling and pressing the thumbprint. Handling the dough may melt your butter, and melted butter = flat cookie. Extra flour and chilling is key!

Danish Kringle

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
This dough is as close as you'll get to puff pastry/danish dough without all the work that goes into those. It really does need the full 8hrs, i tried to work with it at 7 1/2 and it was still gooey. I made one with nuts(pecans), and one with cream cheese(sweetened) and blackberry jam. The blackberry jam one leaked alot. It can't handle alot of moisture. Next time i want to use apple pie filling, but i'll definitely fish out the apple chunks w/ a fork so there isn't too much saucy-ness to leak out. I also folded it more like a burrito, then made slits on top w/ a knife.

Pecan Lace Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
Super thin and crunchy, almost toffee-like. I used dark corn syrup just because it's all i had. I also added 1/4teaspoon Cardamom just for the heck of it. Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, anything like that would also be yummy. They're probably great without any additions though. They spread ALOT! I dropped 1/2 teaspoons full, and only put 6 cookies per baking sheet. I baked them on parchment paper, for 8-9 minutes, took the parchment paper off the cookie sheet and onto my countertop, to cool them quickly.

Apple Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
I added 1cup dried cranberries, and omitted the nuts. It took a full hour to cook, and even then it seemed underdone in the middle, but the top was burning so i took it out anyway. It tasted delicious, but fell apart. I probably won't make this again.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
5 stars for how easy it is. I recommend chilling before cutting. I made mine in two pans for super thin bars, i'm glad i did because it's really rich.
