Bon Bon Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
These are so yummy. Make sure you roll these is plenty of powdered sugar. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great.

Awesome Asparagus Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
One of the best recipes I've tried on this site! And I don't even like tomato, and I've never tried asparagus.... so delicious. The sauce was very runny though *shrug* tasted good!

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.

Almond Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
Why does this recipe need to be changed so much? It's pretty darn good just the way it is :)

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).

Grandma's Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
The best blueberry pie I have ever tasted, period. My mom agrees and the rest of the family enjoyed it as well :) I used fresh blueberries ("Elliot") from our garden and "Pie Crust IV" from this site. I will make this again!

This is an awesome torte. The lemon in the icing is a great accompaniment to the gingerbread layers.

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.

Chai Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
As an icing this is really good, it's a bit soft for a true buttercream. I added one extra tea bag to my 1/4 c water and I could just taste the tea. I might even suggest using 4 tea bags if you want a noticeable chai flavor. I used this to fill and crumb coat my birthday cake, then I covered it with the rolled buttercream fondant. Very good!

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.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Great for a quick chocolate frosting. I used 2% milk instead of evaporated because I didn't want to waste it. Came out very shiny. Good flavor though. I used it to frost the German Sweet Chocolate Cake I, and it was a good combo. Not quite enough for a good thickness on the side plus decoration though, I really had to stretch it. I'll double it next time :) Update: I made this again, doubled it, and used the evaporated milk and it was MUCH better!!!! It wasn't as shiny and weird as the first time and I used it on the German chocolate cake again. I liked it better this time, be careful not to add too much evaporated milk though or it will get runny quick!

Green Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
I really liked this! It's a shame there's so many bad reviews :( I froze my banana and kale. My kale was fresh from the garden though. I included the flax see meal (found in bulk section at WinCo) and the coconut oil (found in health food section of Fred Meyers). I melted the coconut oil so it would blend better with the other ingredients. I also used nonfat milk and Simply Orange 100% orange juice. I just went out and picked a whole bunch more kale to freeze so I can have this more often!

Angel Cake Surprise

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
Such a great summer dessert. My family and friends liked it, I thought it was delicious. Easy to make, though the prep time took me way longer than the recipe said. Make sure you use HOT water to dissolve the gelatin. Also, the sliced peaches I bought were sliced really thick, making it hard to spread the pudding and Cool Whip over the top, but I managed :)I forgot to put the crushed pineapple over the peaches, so I improvised and just layered them over the pudding. Worked out fine. Cut into squares, getting them out of the dish nice and clean was a task, the bottom layer wants to stick to it. Garnished squares with sliced strawberries and mint leaves. Scrumptious! Note: make sure to serve ASAP because the layer of bananas gets an icky brown! I tossed mine in lemon juice even.

Asian Sugar Snap Pea Appetizer

Yum! I made this last night for dinner for me and my boyfriend and we both liked it. I served them over some yakisoba noodles flavored with a little sesame oil. It was quite filling!

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.

Quick Tomato Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
I've never been able to stomach fresh tomatoes until now! This recipe is great and tastes wonderfully fresh. I added a slice of cheddar cheese and it rocked my socks.

Vanilla Bean Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
I made this for someone else so I didn't get to try it, but she said it was the best cheesecake she's ever tasted, period. The vanilla beans here are $10 each so I only used the two for the cake and didn't put any in the crust. I baked this in a water bath after encasing the pan in foil and it took 5 minutes longer than stated, probably just my oven. It turned out beautifully. The next day after chilling, I glazed it with chocolate ganache and splattered white and semisweet chocolate all over it, then masked it with a border of chocolate sprinkles. Very awesome looking in person! My cheesecake weighed in at 6 pounds!

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.

Cinnamon Cookies II

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Ok, I noticed something strange here. The recipe supposedly yields 3 dozen cookies, but it says to "drop" them by teaspoons! First of all, the dough was stiff enough to be able to roll into little balls after scooping them with a teaspoon, making the finished cookies look like cute little coins. Secondly, teaspoon-sized cookies in this recipe makes way more than 3 dozen. Perhaps the writer of this recipe meant to say drop by tablespoonfuls? Regardless, these are delicious! I like my cookies chewy and on the softer side, so I only baked these little cinnamon coins for 7 minutes and they were just right. I still have over half a batch of dough left, so I may make some larger ones, but I actually like them bite sized. I cooled them on the sheet pan until they were hard enough to move to a plate. Yum!
