Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
I am not a huge fan of carrot cake. I made this for my bf who is always begging for anything not chocolate. I used the suggestions from gneebeanie and it turned out amazing. Initially, I had just a tiny piece, but had to back for more. This recipe made me a carrot cake lover, thank you!

Carne Guisada II

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
I don't have a crock-pot and just used the stove turned to low. Mine was done after about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. There is no need to cook this on the stove for 8 to 12 hours. Served buritto still with rice, beans, sour cream, cheese, and tomatoes. It was delicious and so easy. Will make again.

Chocolate Mint Candies Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
These cookies taste like a softer version of the Girl Scout thin mints. Absolutely amazing. I used 1/2 an Andes mint on some and a full on others. I prefer the 1/2 mint, but the boyfriend prefers the full.

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
A reviewer said the dressing reminded them of lemon juice and they were right! After reading reviews I cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup and substituted blue cheese for swiss. My book club loved it.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
The reviewers are correct this is amazing. I used Granny Smith apples, added a pinch of nutmeg, decreased the water, and doubled the topping (which I layered on the top and bottom). Although I love crumb topping, I actually thought that doubling the crumb topping was a little much.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
Ok, so the measurements for this recipe are way off. Just keep adding milk, vanilla, and corn syrup until you get a desirable consistancy. This icing is so shiny and looks professional. People have been commenting on it all week!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
I have made this recipe twice now, using a couple of different changes. The first time I added just 1 cup granulated sugar, 1 cup of powdered, and 2 tsp of vanilla. The second I added a Tbsp of vanilla and 3 cups of granulated sugar, and I prefer these revisions. You have to really chill these (freezer for an hour or so) and use a lot of flour to ensure they don't stick.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
The reviews are right this is really great snickerdoodle recipe. I followed the recipe exactly, but on half I put cardamom and sugar in place of the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Not as good, but an interesting change.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
We loved this and have made this a couple of times. Tastes great with frozen peaches, or once we didn't have enough peaches so substituted nectarines and apricots. Still amazing. Give this a try, you'll not be dissappointed.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
I was expecting something so amazing due to large number of high reviews. They were ok, nothing special. I prefer the sour cream banana bread to these any day.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
Followed the recipe exactly and these were not the best brownies I have ever had. Good texture, but nothing to rave about. I do prefer brownies made with a chocolate bar as opposed to powder.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
I was skeptical about such high reviews for a box cake mix, but this is amazing. I doubled both the liquor and coffee whenever added. I took this to book club and everyone loved it! Thanks for the amazing dessert.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
I was really disappointed with this recipe after all the great reviews. Before I attempted this recipe I read through a bunch of the suggestions and changed the sugar to 2 cups white and 1 cup brown, other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I let this sit overnight before taking it to a work breakfast potluck. It was rather bland and half of it was left uneaten.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
These were good. Made the dough by hand and it is a must that you use bread flour as AP produces a different (although still tasty) texture. Never been to Cinnabon, but if they are as tasty as these rolls than it must be worth it.

Veggie Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
This recipe is good, but I made some changes. First I drained the beans (and added veggie stock), left out the mushrooms, and added celery. I also cooked this for much longer, close to an hour. Very filling and delicious.

German Rouladen

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
I made this to kick of the start of Octoberfest. I was nervous about the amount of prep, but once started the assembly and cooking of the rolls went really fast. I regret not reading all of the reviews because I would have liked to cook this just slightly longer than an hour. Everyone loved it and they were a huge success.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
I made these cookies without deviating from the recipe (ok, so I did use the small peanut butter cups cut in half, froze, and then inserted into the middle) and they are delicious with a great consistency and texture. Will make again!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
I absolutely love this recipe. I used all butter because that is all I had on hand. I also used pumpkin spice in place of the spices and chocolate chips for raisins. Even without these changes these cookies would be so delicious. I am surprised any got baked we loved the dough so much. Thanks Beth!

Old Fashioned Paradise Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
I did get a little mixing even though I poured the cheesecake mixture over a frozen pie crust and left that in the freezer. The pecan topping though hid any imperfections. The taste was really great, although next time I think I'll add some cinnamon to the topping.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Slices

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
This recipe is really easy and tasty. My crust was really thin, so next time I think I'll use 4-4 1/2 cups of gram crackers. I also baked a pumpkin and used the pulp from that. This increased the prep time, but I think it gave it more flavor (with the addition of pumpkin spice).
