Pastel de Tres Leches (Three Milk Cake)

Reviewed: May 10, 2014
First, let me say that I didn't follow the recipe exactly. Because I live in a high altitude area, I always have to modify my cake recipes: less sugar, less leavening, more flour, more liquid. When I first made this recipe, I misread the amount of baking powder. I'm still not sure that the recipe requires 1 Tablespoon of baking powder. I thought the recipe said 1 teaspoon, and I adjusted for high altitude accordingly. Also, instead of a 10x15 cake, I made cupcakes. I make a lot of cupcakes, all the time. Everybody in my world has their own personal favorite. This recipe has now become everybody's personal favorite! I did make other modifications: I used coconut milk in place of milk in the cake batter and added a half teaspoon of coconut extract and a dash of cinnamon. I also made a topping of freshly whipped cream with dulce de leche, and then topped with toasted coconut. Essentially, I made a cinco leches cake. ;) Great recipe!

Apricot Brandy Pound Cake III

Reviewed: May 10, 2013
Wonderful recipe. I made it for an office party, and it got rave reviews. It was a real crowd-pleaser. I made mine with apricot nectar rather than brandy, but added in a couple of big spoonfuls of apricot preserves. I also used an apricot almond glaze, made with 1/4 cup apricot nector, 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. I loved the texture and the flavor.

Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
I added the grated zest of a large orange to my batter. These were some of the best oatmeal cookies I've ever made. I highly recommend this recipe.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
Delicous! I was looking for something different than my usual favorite banana bread with chocolate chips, and came across this one. I will need to adjust for high altitude in the future, since the bread fell when I took it out of the oven. I used unsalted butter, 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar, and added a dash of cinnamon. Heavenly!

Mom's Island Treasures

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
These cookies are wonderful. I added a whole bag of chocolate chips. I accidentally overcooked one batch, and even the toasted ones are yummy.

Triple Fudge Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
Excellent, but I would not really call this a brownie. I added some mashed banana and a splash of almond extract. Very rich, moist and chocolatey. I really liked the fact that this recipe didn't contain egg, and it was super-easy.

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2001
Mmmm, yummy! The description is right....you can't eat just one. I made mine with Mexican vanilla, and the aroma while baking just about drove me loco.

Make Ahead Manicotti

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2001
Yum! Took this to an office potluck and it was a big hit. Made some extra for my family....my 4-year old, who doesn't eat anything, enjoyed it, and my hubby, who doesn't like spinach, loved it as well. Thanks!
