Best Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2013
Brownie part - good; Frosting - way too sweet! Corrective action - omit the honey, add milk instead!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies IV

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Remember people - it's nutritional value PER SERVING; the reason it appears to be so low in fat is because it claims to make 100 cookies, one hundred from this amount of ingredients... I don't think so - - maybe 36?

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
Delicious - I don't know why there's half a star missing - you certainly can't get any closer to that familiar taste.

Lancashire Hot Pot

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
I like the idea of it - the simplicity of it but, it's boring - definitely needs a little something more, I'll make it again using it as a base but, will play around with different additions (ie: wine, another root vegetable or two...); also, and more importantly "4-servings" I don't think so, try 8.

Black Forest Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Yes, this is a good recipe, however, something is either missing from the ingredients or, misinterpreted in the instructions. If you drizzle the 1/2 cup of Kirsch on the cake layers, then there isn't any liquid in the Icing - aside from the 1 tsp of coffee! Step 3 states to drizzle the 1/2 cup of Kirsch on the cake layers - which, to my knowledge is partly what Black Forrest cake is all about. Step 4 just doesn't make sense then though because, 3-1/2 cups of Icing Sugar and only 1 tsp of liquid (coffee) equals very dry crumble. I've made this twice now - the first time I mixed the 1/2 cup of Kirsch into Step 4. The 2nd time I drizzled the cake layers with the Kirsch (as it should be), and then had to add almost a full cup of liquid to the Icing Sugar mixture (I used milk, cherry juice, and another tsp of coffee). It's also nicer if the drained cherries are soaked in some Kirsch for a while.

Gingersnap Pear Tart

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
I love ginger, and I love pears but, I found this to be rather blah actually; there's no WOW factor whatsoever - it's lacking something but, I can't quite put my finger on what that is? I wouldn't make it again, and I disagree with the 4-1/2 star rating.
