Light and Creamy Brown Sugar and Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Wonderful - very quick and easy. Loses one star for the recipe submitters name. Last thing I want to think about when baking is maggots! YUK

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
First made-from-scratch cake. I made a mistake and added an extra 1/2 cup sugar, so I offsetted it by adding 1/2 cup butter. As a result it came out too sweet but that's my fault. Otherwise it was EXCELLENT. I never knew I could make such a delicious cake. Of course, no more store-bought or boxed cakes for me. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.

Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
First pie I ever made. It was fantastic. I brought it to my parent's place for Thanksgiving but they had already bought a pumpkin pie. They tasted my pie and I only got mediocre reviews. It was eaten up anyway. The next day, when they got around to eating the store-bought pie, they phoned me up with rave reviews. There was absolutely no comparison! The second time I made this pie, wanting to use up the rest of the homemade puree, I decided to make my own crust. Followed the Never Fail Pie Crust II and it was an amazing result. Not bad for a first time pie and crust maker!!

Never Fail Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
It was a disaster at first and I almost started crying because I had alreay made the pie filling. I have never made a pie crust. Here's what happened. It took forever to mix the shortening and flour together, so I decided to use my hands. I dipped my fingers into cold water first, as suggested by another reviewer but I could have made a pie crust just from the dough that stuck on my hands. I put the mess into the fridge for a few hours to chill like another reviewer suggested. It only made it slightly easier. So, I took another reviewers suggestion and decided to roll it out between two floured pieces of wax paper. Another disaster. It stuck to the wax paper so bad that I must have spent a half an hour trying to scoop it all off. By now, I was really worried. All recipes say not to over-work the flour - as it will be a tough, hard pastry. I had been squishing it, playing with it, rolling it and messing it up for so long at this point. How could I fail a never fail pie crust! I rolled it into a ball, flattened it out somewhat and begun working it from the center of the pan outward. I couldn't make it even, and some places it was paper thin. I forged ahead anyway, having given up at this point. Baked the pie then tasted it. Guess what? Amazing, flaky, delicious pie crust!!! Whatever you do, don't give up, it really does work!!

Empire Cookies

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
I've just recently fallen in love with baking, and have so much to learn. My mother's favourite cookie is the Empire cookie, although I'm not a fan of them myself. Unfortunately, I can never find them at the bakery. With mother's day coming up, I decided to try to make them myself. I was very nervous as I've only baked a few things to date. Totally unfounded! They came out fantastic on the first try. I couldn't believe that I made these cookies. I used a cookie cutter (first time) in the shape of a heart. As I said, I'm not fond of them so I asked my sister to give them a trial run before giving them to my mother. My sister oohed and ahhhed. I am now a BIG fan of empire cookies. My mother was shocked to see her fav cookies, and that I made them. She so went on about them to my Aunt, that I then had to make a second batch for her! .I don't have anything other than my kitchen table (wooden) to roll the dough on. The dough is so sticky and no matter how much flour I dusted the table with, that dough would stick to it and the rolling pin. I kept brushing flour on the rolling pin. Then, after I cut out the shapes, I'd try and lift them up with a spatula and they'd stick! So my poor little cookies mostly came out looking like mutated hearts. Secondly, I set the timer for 10 mins and they came out beautifully, but the second batch, also set for 10 mins came out a little too brown on the bottom.

Rotisserie Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Can someone help me? I never know what kind of butter to add to these recipes. Do I use salted, or unsalted? I wish that was included to avoid my confusion! Thanks.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
This is the first time I've ever made muffins. I was told to put more fibre in my diet and I bought the store brand. They felt soooo greasy and I could just feel them clogging my arteries! This recipe is GREAT. I subbed pretty much the same as everyone. Thank you for allrecipes.
