Tender Potato Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
These are great with left over sweet potatoes - not only does it give them a nice sweet taste but it also adds some color.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
As is, this is not near as spicy as I feel it should be - a pinch of cayenne does nothing - I added a least a teaspoon as well as just as much chipotle chile pepper to kick it up a bit - I also found a whole lime juiced would make it much too watery - I used half if that. I also don't mash the avacados - by the time the mixing is done, it's mashed up enough in the end.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
This was too rich for my liking and that is after I read the reviews and "toned" it down a bit - I made it in a bunt pan and tried to put the brown sugar mixture on the bottom so it'd be on the top when I removed it from the pan, big mistake as it was a bit too hard - I just hate coffee cake in anything other than a bunt pan...so I guess my hunt for the pefect coffee cake is unfinished.

Meringue II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
I loved this recipe - it was wonderful. I doubled it though, as is would not be enough for one pie in my opinion - but that depends on how thick you want it. Thanks for the great recipe.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I tried this recipe just to compare with others and I find just using extra PURE vanilla extract is much better than the vanilla pudding mix - I can't say these are even close to the best I have ever had.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
These are great - if you like pumpkin - they are moist and tasty. I didn't flatten them out though - I use a scoop similar to an ice cream scoop but smaller to scoop out cookie batter, so it is consistent and all the cookies are the same size for even cooking results. These were nice and fluffy, so I am glad I didn't flatten them at all.

Emma's Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
This is an okay recipe - I have found though waffles have a lot to do with a waffle iron and since I bought my Waring Pro belgian waffle iron it has made a world of difference - takes long as you can only make one at a time, but my the difference. Also, I substitute in some corn starch into the flour mixture and this adds a nice crunch to the waffle. Another thing I have learned is if you want to keep waffles warm to place them on the oven rack directly, don't ever stack them or put them on a plate, else they can get soggy.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I guess this is one of those recipes which reminds us we all have different tastes - unfortunately my family and I didn't find this dish to be anything special and I'll not be making it again - but it's great other people have found it to be a favorite - what makes the world go around.

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
This is a great recipe - the only thing I add, and I add this to a lot of recipes, if ground flax seed. I added about half a cup of flax seed and it gives the recipe a slight healthy edge as well as a nuttier flavour without the nuts. However, even without this addition it is a great recipe. Thank you Cathy.

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
The flavour of this recipe is great - they do melt in your mouth - but I don't agree with the temp and time - I'd say 350 for less than 10 minutes, for rolled out and cut cookies anyway, and only 8 minutes for dropped cookies or ones made using a cookie press. For rolled cookies, chilling the dough made all the difference, for the cookie press it can't be chilled though. Not sure the deal with having to let them cool on the sheet or else they crumble - I found they came off the sheet straight out of the oven and we could eat them right way, no crumbling whatsoever. Perhaps this is due to whipping the butter for many minutes and taking about 10 minutes in total to add the flour mixture. Also, I added some almond extract, as they needed just a hint of flavour. Even without it though they are great.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
The flavour was fine BUT they are not soft, they flatten out on the cookie sheet after baking (that could be the altitude here but the pictures provided by others showed the same problem.) I just don't know how a "soft" cookie recipe would call for 100% white sugar - next time, if I make them again, I'll use half white and half brown as any baker knows the brown sugar is what makes a cookie soft.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2006
Oh my, I think this is the worst recipe I have tried on this site - unfortunate as they sounded so good from the other reviewers - I guess each to their own but these were pitiful.

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
I actually found this recipe in a Bacardi Rum recipe booklet from the liquor store - I logged on here to see if there was a similar recipe and read the reviews before making it. Turned out great - I used Captain Morgan's spiced rum and I only used half the glaze as I didn't want it soaked too much - if I know the cake will be eaten in one sitting I will use more but to have the cake last a few days I found it best to use half so as not to have a soggy cake to serve up to people. This is so easy as well - anything involving a cake mix is usually a no brainer.

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
This is so easy anybody who claims they can't cook can even make it. Sometimes there is no pride in fussing about in a kitchen all day when results like this can be had with no work at all. Sometimes less is definitely more. This is a wonderful tasting ham - and the sauce can either be reduced to a glaze or flowered into a gravy. Thanks very much for this recipe - this will be how I cook ham now for a very long time.
