Holiday Left-Over Sweet Potato Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This turned out great! I didn't have that many sweet potatoes left over, so I halved the recipe and made it into cupcakes - these only take about 16 minutes to bake, depending on how gooey your batter is. Also, I added a lot more cinnamon - yum!

Coconut Pecan Frosting I

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
Really good - I followed someone else's advice and tempered by egg yolks, so I didn't have any problems with lumpiness. But after cooking it for ten minutes and adding the pecans and coconut it was way too thick, almost like taffy. Tasted good but wouldn't spread. So I just put it back on low heat and added heavy cream until it was smooth enough to spread, turned out great. I like a recipe that you can go back and fix after messing it up!

Applesauce Rum-Raisin Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
This turned out perfectly the first time I tried it. I didn't have cocoa powder so I added extra cinnamon and nutmeg, and dusted the top with some powdered sugar. Very nice!

Chocolate Peppermint Candies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
These taste great! Even though they were messy to make, I still give this 5 stars because chocolate messes are the best kind. I agree with the other post that smaller and thicker patties are easier to dip. I made some that were too thin and flat, and they fell apart in the chocolate.

Chocolate Mint Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
For some reason, I just couldn't get the chocolate dough to work out right. When I added the melted chocolate, it turned into a crumbly mess. Rather than toss it all out, I melted some chocolate chips (with some peppermint extract and a little vegetable oil mixed in) and spread that over the white dough in place of the chocolate dough. I rolled it up and cut it just like the recipe says, and they turned out great, like swirly minty chocolate chip cookies!

Raspberry Crumble

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
I tried this recipe because I had lots of leftover blueberry jam. When I first tried cooking the crust in the microwave, it started to burn (even on low power), so I just finished it in the oven at 350 and took it out when the top was toasty looking. The end result was very yummy, but next time I'll skip the microwave and use a little more jam.

Pinwheel Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
These were pretty easy to make, although my "pinwheel" was a little messy looking. They turned out a little too crispy for my taste so I might cut them thicker next time. Even so, they were very tasty and my boyfriend finished them off!

Rum Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
I like the way these cookies turned out, they were very soft and buttery and not too sweet. But I don't think they taste very much like eggnog, even though I sprinkled fresh nutmeg on them like some people suggested. Next time I might try adding more rum extract to the recipe.

Coconut Rum Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
Even though I substituted ginger snaps and pecans, these turned out really good. I think it helps if you use good rum. After they chilled, I dipped these in white chocolate to make them extra yummy. Would be very good for a party any time of year.

Lemon Honey Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
These muffins were super easy and they turned out great. I used lemon chiffon flavored yogurt instead of plain, and added some oats and almonds on top to make them pretty and crunchy.

Cranberry Crunch Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
I had so much leftover cranberry sauce, I decided to make this like a cobbler. Instead of using melted butter for the topping, I cut some cold butter into the mixture, and it turned out nice and crunchy. Soooo good with ice cream!

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I think these are pretty yummy for a low fat snack, and my boyfriend says they taste like banana nut bread. If you think they're too soft, chopped pecans will give them a crunchy texture. The best part about the recipe is that there are no eggs, so you can eat some of the batter while it's resting.

Marshmallow Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
These are soooo yummy, and way easier than traditional popcorn balls. It's even easier if you use microwave popcorn - I used 2 bags of Kettle Corn, which made them nice and sweet. My classmates loved them!
