Alfredo Mostaccioli

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
I looooved this, but if I remember next time, I will use flat leaf parsley instead of curly because the curly parsley if crispier than the other. I'd also like to try this with fresh Parmesan instead of already grated. Other than that, perfect!

Angel Food Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
This was good, I ate 3 pieces! My family really liked it too. The only thing I changed was that I didn't whip the egg whites to stiff peaks. When you make angel food, you're not supposed to whip them to very stiff peaks because that expands the walls of the bubbles to their full capacity, so then they won't rise anymore in the oven. I whipped mine to a good thick foam, then added the cream of tartar, whipped them to soft peaks, added the extracts, then whipped just enough to incorporate them. My batter was POURABLE, I didn't have to scoop it into the pan. Also, when you mix the flour mixture in, gently fold it in with a spatula, or else you'll pop the tiny bubbles and it will deflate. I cooled my cake in the pan on the counter, no bottle or funnel, just balance... and it was fine (make sure you cool it completely!!!). I did use a tube pan with a removable bottom, I also highly recommend that. I served up the slices with macerated strawberry slices and sweetened whipped cream.

Cinnamon Crackle Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
This is a great cookie! Everyone who's tried this loves it. I use all butter, no shortening. I use a scoop to make the size uniform, roll in the sugar, and bake 6 jumbo cookies at a time. I haven't heard from anyone that they're too sweet, and I don't think so either. I also just use one orange and one lemon per batch for the peel.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Great chocolaty glaze. Next time I may add just a tad more corn syrup so it doesn't 'glob' when drizzling. I drizzled this on the edge of the German Sweet Chocolate Cake I, and it was a lovely addition.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
I frosted my dad's birthday cake with this and it was perfect. Dip a metal offset spatula in warm water before spreading the frosting to get a smooth finish without ripping the top of the cake off.

Almond Poppy Seed Bars

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
1. Swap the butter flavoring our for more almond extract in the batter. Don't overmix! 2. Use a jelly roll pan, not a 13x9. 3. Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of almond extract to the frosting (it's a little thick, you may want to warm it or thin it with more milk). If you make these changes, you will certainly be impressed :)

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
For a chocolate cake (just not my fave) this earns its keep for sure. The batter is sooo thin, you won't think it will come out right, but it does. I split my batter into 3 9in round pans and two cupcakes for testing. I followed the direction exactly, using homemade buttermilk (milk and lemon juice). I'm sensitive to caffeine so the tester cupcakes gave me quite a little zip! My only problem was the cake was so moist that it was difficult to cut off the tops of the layers without it crumbling, but I managed alright. I popped them in the freezer and will shape them up a bit more after they're frozen. I plan on using Caramel Frosting V for the filling and Rich Chocolate Frosting for the outside(both from this site).

Indian Style Basmati Rice

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
Very flavorful, loved the cinnamon. I even burned the cumin seeds and it was STILL good. Set the fire alarm off when I added the water to the rice though :P

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
This was almost too good :) Everyone loved this. I made the salsa as stated, but used the spray-cut-shake method with the chips (shaking them in a baggie with the cinnamon sugar) and it was great. Thanks!

Kelly's Apple Cocoa Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
This cake is very very good. Make sure you let it cool completely in the pan on a rack before trying to unmold it. Loosen the cake in the pan with a knife and place a plate over the pan, then flip it over and tap a little on the bottom of the pan. Some of the chocolate chips stuck to the bottom of the pan, I just stuck them back on the top of the cake lol. I made a simple glaze out of powdered sugar, cinnamon, and milk and it was a great addition. This cake is very moist and delicious, although I don't know about calling it a "chocolate" cake, it tastes more like a spice cake with a little chocolate in it. Either way, the flavor and texture is great. Don't unmold while still warm!!! It will crumble and fall apart. This one is staying in my recipe box.

Rolled Buttercream Fondant

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I just made this a few days ago to cover my birthday cake. It was delicious and looked great. Make sure you chill it for quite a while so it hardens up, it is very soft to begin with.

7-Layer Meatless Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
BTW, I used whole wheat tortillas, organic canned pinto and black beans, and fresh salsa instead of the Picante sauce, it was still delicious.

Potato Chips

I enjoyed making my own chips. Very easy. I made sure my microwave setting was on high so it didn't take so long.

Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
These were some of the best cookies I made this Christmas, very rich and delicious! They were so chewy and good. I chopped the nuts very fine so I didn't have big chunks of them in the dough.

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
This was really wonderful, especially the next morning. The whole family enjoyed this cake. I did use butter instead of margarine and I melted my brown sugar and butter together in the microwave and then poured it into the pan instead of melting it in the oven. I only needed 2 plums as they were fairly large, and I used blueberries from our garden! I also didn't "beat" in any ingredients, but mixed them on a lower speed so as not to jeopardize the texture of the cake. I baked it for only 35 minutes, my toothpick came out clean and I removed it before it baked dry. My only regret is not having a 9" cake pan, I have what I believe to be a 10" or bigger, so the cake came out pretty thin. The flavor of this cake is great, it's so easy, and very attractive!
