GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
I don't think I would give this such a high review if I made it just as written, but with some of the adjustments others made and a couple of my own, it really is outstanding. I added 1/2 tsp. each of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and almond extract. To boost the peach flavor, I tossed the peach chunks with a couple of teaspoons of Peach Snapps and I also added 1 Tbs. Peach Snapps to the cake batter. I also added a caramel glaze as another review mentioned. I did add some salt to the caramel. The cake has a very nice texture and I highly recommend you make it a day ahead as the favors develop as the cake sits. I will certainly add this cake to my favorites.

Andie's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Very good filling. I used Italian sausage in place of the ground beef. It made more filling than I could use in the mushrooms. I put it on sliced french bread and heated those in the oven- yum!

Creamy Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
This is coconut cream pie in a cake!! Very good, but best after at least a day in the fridge. We used lightly sweetened whip cream and toasted coconut. Perfect.

Ganache I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Very good, very easy. I used it on the Too Much Chocolate Cake from this site. Makes a pretty big batch, probably 1/3 batch would have been plenty for the Bundt style cake.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
This really is an outstanding cake. I got raves from everyone. I agree, do use the mini chocolate chips, it makes a big difference. I used the Ganache I from this site to drizzle on the cake. Perfect, my new "go to" chocolate cake.

Banana Butterscotch Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
Very good, we really enjoyed the combination of butterscotch flavor with the banana. Nice moist loaves, I will make this again. As with most banana bread, better the second day.

Spring Strawberry Salad with Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
Great salad. I just made it for a baby shower and everyone was raving about it. It was easy to make and did not require a lot of last minute preparation. I will certainly make this again.

Carrot Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
I am just rating the icing. It is now going to be my "go to" for cream cheese frosting. Wonderful flavor and easy to work with. It does hold it's shape for piping, but being cream cheese and butter, it did start to get to get a bit too soft after it warmed up. I made it a day ahead and re-whipped it the next day before using.

Gooey Chip Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
They are sweet and they are gooey, but I was underwhelmed. Don't think I will make these again, nothing special.

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
Really good and I did not find them difficult to make at all. I made both dough and filling and wrapped them in plastic wrap and allowed them to chill for a couple of hours. I then made sure I had an equal number of portions of both and just wrapped the dough around the scoop of the filling. They look great and taste great.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
OUTSTANDING!! The only change that I made was to use bacon (3 thick slices cut up) in place of the bacon bits. I cooked the bacon until crisp, then drained it and used the bacon fat to saute the onions, pepper, celery, etc. This stuff just got better each day. The reaction I got was OMG! from each person who tried it! This will be my go to recipe for chili from now on

Perfect Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
I follwed the proportions from this and the filling was way too thick. The flavor was great, but really wtch how much you thicken the filling. I think I would also add a little more almond extract.

Watermelon Lemonade

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
I was disappointed, this was not very flavorful and I added extra lemon juice to try to zip it up. Don't think I will make it again.

Grandma Bellows' Lemony Shrimp Macaroni Salad with Herbs

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
This has been my basic macaroni salad recipe for almost 40 years. I use more hard boiled eggs, frozen salad shrimp, omit the dill and use MiracleWhip in place of the mayo. It's the only time I ever use Miracle Whip! Make it a day ahead, except for the shrimp as the flavors meld and the macaroni tends to absorb the MW, you may need to add a bit more. Then gently fold the shrimp in before serving.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
These are super. They are not too sweet, so I think they are a great addition to the holiday cookie assortment. The colors are very festive too. A little dip in white or dark chocolate is a nice addition. My Sicilian husband approved!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
OK, I have made more apple pies than I can count in my life and I thought I had the ultimate recipe, but this one is better! I did toss the apples with about 2TB flour mixed with about 2 tsp. cinnamon, then filled my pie pan and poured the sugar mixture over the apples before I put on the top crust. That sugar mixture looked sort of like greasy pudding at that point and I was doubtful that this was going to work, but it all just blended beautifully with the apples during baking. I doubled the recipe to make a 10 inch pie and really heaped it full. I had maybe 1 cup of apples and a little sugar mix left over, but it made a very nice full, large pie. This goes to the top of my list!

Beefy Lentil Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
A good , very hearty soup. Be sure to use the spicy V-8. I followed the advice of others and browned my onions and some garlic before adding them to the soup. I used fresh mushrooms and added about 6 oz. of Cabernet the last 20 minutes of cooking.
