Sweet Potato Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Delicious. I add cinnamon and nutmeg to the mashed sweet potatoes, which added some additional flavor. Very, very sweet though- nearly a dessert.

Chocolate Meringue Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
I made this recipe last night and it was excellent- I was impatient and pulled them out at 25 minutes, so the centers weren't quite done, but they were still delicious and airy and just wonderful. Tonight, using the same implements, ingredients, and technique, they turned out flat as pancakes. Still delicious, but pancakey. The weather is still cool and dry, so I don't think it was that. I guess the moral of the story is that meringue is a fickle dish. C'est la vie.

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
This really was the best carrot cake I've ever had. I took the advice of some other reviewers and drained the carrots and pineapple really well, adding about two tablespoons of the pineapple juice back when I mixed the dry and wet ingredients together. I also soaked the raisins in pineapple juice and a little warm water and then drained them before adding them. I left out the walnuts since I had some picky eaters to serve and added a dash of nutmeg. The end result was well, well worth the effort. I made it for a birthday party and while we usually have quite a bit of cake leftover after birthdays at our house, there were arguments over who would get seconds and every slice was gone by the end of the party.

Veggie Lasagna Florentine

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
I took the advice of some other reviewers and made a few changes: 1. No-boil noodles (they cooked perfectly in the liquid of the sauce, just be sure they're on top of sauce layers). 2. More veggies (I added green pepper and fresh portobello mushrooms coarsely chopped- it added bulk and texture to please the meat-eaters). 3. Half ricotta/half cottage cheese. 4. Fresh spinach instead of frozen. 5. Allow for about twice the recommended prep time, the sauce is delicious but requires a lot of chopping and simmering and a little less than the recommended cooking time. I found it was done to the point of the top cheese layer beginning to burn after 45 minutes. Definitely keep an eye on it. I served it to a house full of fairly picky omnivores and got lots of compliments, and I'm looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow myself. Very tasty and well worth the lengthy prep time.
