Peach Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
Excellent cake, would make again and recommend it others. I only had 3 fresh peaches so I also added a large can of peaches and it worked out fine, actually could of used even more peaches than that. As others suggested I used alittle less oil and replaced with the peach juice from the canned peaches. Cinnamon was perfect, could of used alittle less sugar but that just depends on your preference or severity of your sweet tooth!! Overall it's a keeper!!

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
Sometimes simple is best!!! These are by far the best banana muffins I have ever made and I've been cooking for over 20 yrs. I did substitute 1/2 c of the white flour for whole wheat, added 1 tsp vanilla, chopped walnuts and choc. chips. The key really is to NOT overmix! Super simple and delicious!!!

Beef and Irish Stout Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I made this for my family for St. Patricks Day dinner and boy was I glad I did!! I loved the ease of this recipe by cooking everything in one pan. I did not bother measuring out the tomatoe paste...just use the whole 6 oz can nor did I measure the beer, just use the whole bottle 11.2 oz Like others suggested I added about 2 tbsp of brown sugar to cut the bitterness. It seemed too thick so I added about 2 c beef broth also then simmered for almost 3 hrs. Came out perfect, very yummy. Definately recommend to serve this with the amazingly easy Irish soda bread from this site. Thanks for a great meal!!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I had to leave a review b/c it made the VERY BEST banana bread!! I did make some changes, took others advice and cut sugar to 2 1/2 c sugar, used white/whole wheat blend flour,wheat bran and wheat germ to make the 4 1/2 c flour then added 1 tsp baking powder since some had said it was alittle too dense/didn't seem to cook all the way through. It came out perfect and sooo delicious. The recipe made 5 smaller loaves and 12 muffins.

I served this last night for a Halloween party that I had and it was a great hit! Especially b/c I added vodka as someone else suggested. I used apple cider not apple juice and sprinkled cinnamon in since I did not have sticks and it turned out wonderful. Will definately make again!

Lemon Coconut Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Oh so good! I also did as others suggested and cut back on the sugar alittle and increased lemon juice. Also added a few drops of yellow food coloring for more color. These are still hot from my oven but I had to taste as they smell delicious.... can't wait to have more after they are cooled or seems would be good chilled with a dollop of whipped creme.....YUM!!!!
