English Christmas Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
Mmmmm, this is a delicious snack cake for the holiday season, but it also makes a great breakfast bread when company is over. However, I didn't choose to give this recipe a five star rating because of one small problem. In my opinion, this cake has an overload of spices. All of my family members commented on this being a rather strong cake. With mixed spice, cinnamon, and lemon zest, this cake is more than spicy. What I would recommend to others trying this recipe is to choose add the suggested amount of cinnamon and lemon zest, and leave out the mixed spice. With two spices, the mixed spice is fairly useless.

Peach Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
This cake wasn't quite sweet enough for me the first time tried it so I used peach pie filling instead. That made all the difference in the world! Now I have this recipe at least once a month! Thanks :P

Blue Cheese, Avocado, and Grape Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
Not everyone liked the salad because of the quite original flavors, but those of us who loved blue cheese liked this salad tremendously!! I'm a big blue cheese lover, so this was the perfect salad for me. In the future, I'm planning on making a few modifications for those of us who don't like blue cheese, such as: -Intead of blue cheese dressing, use Thousand Island Dressing. (A creamy kind.) and I plan to replace the cheese with crumbled feta. Also, for all the blue cheese lovers, I would recommend using crumbled blue cheese. Thanks for sharing! :)

Very Moist Gumdrop Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2007
This was actully a very tasty cake, though the name led me to believe that I might not like it since I don't like gumdrops and the ingredients sounded like they would taste strange together. However, this cake was amazing! It tasted similar to my Christmas fruitcakes. All of the people who came for dinner and tried this cake said that they had never eaten anything like it, but liked it very much. The only thing I changed was the amount of gum drops. I would add a little less, but that is just my personal tastes. Also, watch the cake carefully in the oven since its edges brown very quickly! Thanks a bunch, Carol!

Crushed Pineapple Fruitcake

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
The pineapple is a completely new twist on the classic (heavy and in my opinion bland) fruitcake. This pineapple cake has a lighter flavor and is slightly less filing as well. The only part of the recipe I did not understand was the warning not to double the recipe. If done correctly, the cake does fine doubled, trippled, or even quadrupled! :) If you plan on baking for a crowd, don't turn down this recipe because of the false information. This cake tastes great no matter what!

Oatmeal Dried Fruit Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
I made these for Easter, and instead of using dried fruit, I used Jordan almonds from my local candy shoppe, which are almonds with pastel colored candy coatings. Also, I just made them last week with dried strawberries, white chocolate chips, and strawberry extract instead of the vanilla. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Fresh Pear Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
I haven't made this yet, but am planning on making it tonight for a dessert that my family will enjoy. My tips to other people who are attempting this recipe are: 1. A pie really can't have too much cinnamon, so you can add a little more then the recommended amount. 2. Using a butter substitute probably will make your dessert not as good, so forget the diet for a while! :) 3. You can really taste a difference when you use a homede crust. (Try Basic Flakey Pie Crust.) 4. Drizzle with a little vanilla glaze mixed with cinnamon for best results. (Found that out in past experience with pear pies- same goes for apple pies.) 5. Be sure to check the pie before the estimated "Cook Time is up so it won't burn. I hope I could help!

Coconut Lamb Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
I was lacking the lamb mold, as those are very hard to find, so I simply used the recipe to make a standard coconut cake. And let me tell you... the cake was absolutely perfect. I love coconut, so I have tasted many coconut cakes, but this one was really tops on my list. Many cakes have an overly sweet frosting, or tend to leave a sour aftertaste. This cake did neither... it was just a great, pleasing all around dessert. Now I just have to find a lamb mold...

Danish Pastry Apple Bars I

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
These were the best dessert bars I've ever tasted! There really was nothing to change about the recipe even though I always look for ways to make recipes better. This one was perfect as written. This is one recipe I wouldn't recommend passing on!

Carrot Broccoli Salad

I tried this recipe with and without the dried cranberries. It turned out, I liked it better with out them- that's just me though. Instead, I used bell pepper and everyone loved the salad! Thanks :) :)

Cherry Lattice Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
I have been looking for a specific cherry cake for a while and have been having no luck with it. Finally, I found this cake and decided to give it a try. Since it was not yet reviewed, I was a bit unsure of it, but gave the recipe a try anyway. After one bite, this cake had won me over. The cherry filling is just perfect in the center, and I love the cake itself, so elengant and tasty. Just remember that this cake has a tendency to burn easily. Also, don't take the easy way out and use cherry pie filling instead of doing the cherry filling yourself. A friend who also used this recipe complained of an ordinary and bland taste when she substituted canned filling for the fresh ingredients.

Ice Cream Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
I was looking for a tasty dessert that would be fun for our neighbor's birthday and that would feed a lot of people. When I found this recipe, I was delighted! The only thing I did was ommit peanuts from the recipe, being allergic to them myself. Advice I can give to other people about this recipe is... don't make to many changes- this recipe is great just how it is!

Pineapple Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
AMAZING! I love these muffins so much and can't understand why other reviwers had such a hard time with these! The baking time is a little short, recommend a "Cook Time" of about 25 minutes, instead of 20. Besides that, these are wonderful low-fat muffins that I adore! The only things I can think of that threw people off were cook time and maybe the title, since it didn't say bran or raisin anywhere in it! (Another reviwer mentioned that too). Anyway, if you are going to bake these muffins, give it a try because the last thing you'll be is disapointed!
