Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
Excellent! The first time making this recipe I followed it exactly as written. I didn't care for the ginger in the pumpkin bread so I omitted it the second time making it. Absolutely loved it! I've received so many compliments. This will be my pumpkim recipe from now on.

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
Excellent frosting! Everyone really liked it. Not too sweet and great flavor. I didn't add the almond extract because I didn't have any and personal preference. I also used mascapone cheese instead of cream cheese as others suggested. Cream cheese has a much stronger flavor and didn't want it to interfere with the flavor of the whip cream. It turned out great! I recommend putting this in the fridge for a bit to stiffen up a little before frosting the cake.

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
Excellent! I didn't think I'd like ground turkey in chili. I usually use ground beef. But this recipe was very good! Great flavor. This recipe will replace my current chili recipe. This is a keeper!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
Excellent! My family loves it! The only modification I make is I don't use the entire packet of taco seasoning mix. Just a personal preference. Trying to cut down on our sodium. This is definitely a keeper!

Overnight Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
Absolutely wonderful! Made it as written except I omitted the nuts because I don't like nuts in my baked goods. It was moist and quite tasty. I left in the fridge for about 20 hours and it still baked up nicely. This recipe is a keeper.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
Delicious! It was moist and a good crumb texture. I followed the recipe as written except I didn't add the raisins. I don't like raisins in my baked goods. I added chunks of banana instead and it was great! This is my go-to bran muffin recipe from now on!

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
Excellent! I took the advice of others and only used 1/3 cup of sugar and 1/6 flour and 1/6 cornstarch. It turned out perfect! Not too sweet and the consistency was just like pudding. Tasted great! I'll be using this recipe from now on.

Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
This cake was very good! It was moist and delicious! I skipped the icing since it was sweet enough with the streusel in the cake and on top. Will definitely make again!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
Excellent! I made it as written except i added 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Great texture and flavor. It was light and fluffy and just enough banana flavor. I don't think you need to double the topping as others as suggested. There was enough as is. This is definitely a keeper!

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
Yummy! This was really good! I followed the recipe exactly how it was written. I found that using parchment paper instead of foil works better.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
Yum! This soup had great flavor and easy to make! I only used 1/2 the amount of bouillon since we have to watch our sodium and it still came out great. Also I didn't add salt to the soup since the bouillon has enough. In fact it was probably better that I only used 1/2 because other reviews stated it was a little too salty. I also added rotisserie chicken since I had some leftover in the frig which I thought tasted better in the soup than the ham. Next time I will add more vegetables like corn and peas. This is a keeper! Will definitely make again.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Excellent! Made exactly as the recipe is written. Great chocolate flavor, moist and not too sweet. Some reviews said this cake was dense. I thought it was just the oppsite - light and fluffy. This is definitely a keeper. I recommend using a good quality cocoa powder to produce a cake with good flavor, not one of the store brands like Hershey's.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
These cookies were pretty good! Very easy to make. They came out soft and brownie-like. I took the suggestion of others and made the cookies on the smaller side since they are rich especially with the chocolate chips.

Chocolate Snaps Sugar Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
Update: I changed my rating from 5 stars to 4 because I tried the Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie 1 recipe from this website and thought it was much better. Cookies tasted great even a few days later unlike this recipe. Previous Rating: This recipe was good. They're soft, chewy, and just the right amount of chocolate. I also took the advice of the others and omitted the 3 Tbs of margarine. I added the cocoa powder with the flour mixture. They came out great! Best if eaten the first day. Not as good as each day passes.

Mini Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
Very good! The reason why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I had to add additional spices to make it taste more like pumpkin. I added 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/4 tsp cloves. The cookies by themselves were very good! I took the suggestion of others for the cream cheese filling and used 8oz of cream cheese, 4 tbsp of butter, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 cup of powdered sugar. The sandwiches were very good after they sat in the frig to set up! Will definitely make these for thanksgiving.

Jelly-Filled Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
These were pretty good. I made it exactly as the recipe stated except I used black raspberry jam and that was very good. These tasted best right after it came out of the oven and cooled for a bit. The cinnamon sugar topping was good too! I only got 8 muffins from this recipe. I think the muffins would be too small if I tried to get more than 8. I will definitely make these again.

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
Pretty good! Very tasty. I didn't give it 5 stars because i thought there was a little too much chocolate syrup. It made it a little too sweet. Next time I will cut down on the chocolate syrup. I think the peanut butter really made this recipe. I don't think it would taste nearly as good without it. As others have stated i also had to use more ice cream sandwiches - approx 24. You should make this in a deep pan so you don't have to smash the layers down. I will definitely make this again.

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
Very good! The pork came out very tender, juicy, and flavorful. The ginger in the apricot glaze was a little over powering to me. I think next time I will reduce the amount of ginger... just my personal preference. Also I had a lot of glaze leftover. I may cut the glaze recipe in half next time. Will definitely make this again! This recipe is a keeper!
