Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
I always make this recipe and this time I halved it. Turned out perfect. Just needed more time to bake in a loaf pan.

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2008
Totally satisfied with this recipe although I did not follow the measurements or the ingredients..Ok, so I'm really satisfied with what I came up with.. I cut the measurement down to my needs and omitted the salt and cream and used margarine instead of lard... Beautiful!

Chinese Steamed Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
I made this recipe exactly as indicated but halved it. It turned out wonderful. The key is to let it rise, let it rise, let it rise.

Chocolate Decadence Yule Log

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
My cake was not as light and fluffy as the ones in store, a bit on the hard side,(shame on me) and the frosting was a bit sweet for my taste, but I don't like a sweet frosting. I will try this again anyways since it was fun. Thank you!

Chocolate Yule Log

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
I can't even tell you how wonderful I think this recipe is...Very simple and delicious...The first day, I found the icing too sweet also, but it seemed to settle down the day after. I added Amaretto liquer where it called for coffee. I think I am addicted, I have made 4 logs in a week...Yummy!

Chocolate Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly except for two changes. I had grated an extra cup of zuccini and omited 1/2 cup oil. The cake was delicious, moist and not overly sweet which is good for me . I used cream cheese-vanilla-icing sugar-soya milk for an icing to give the extra sugar boost and it looked like a cake out of a magazine. Thank you very much....

Surprise Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
I try not to alter recipes so I can see how they turn out..but I did this time to try and get a "true" cake texture. It turned out perfect and true. I made a simple icing sugar frost. Measurements are the same unless indicated. Use electric mixer to beat margarine and sugar then add eggs. Add flour and some milk (about 1/4 cup) to make a more loose batter. Beat some more. Add vanilla, soda, salt and 1 tsp baking powder. Beat some more. Mash 2 bananas into mixture. Baked in round pan at 350 until done about 50 minutes.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
I made this three times, without the processor, just plain old mixing of dry and then wet....I even doubled up one batch and it is truly a beautiful tasting scone. Mildly sweet, great texture and a great scone plain or dressed up. Thank you. This will be my one and only. BTW, I used fresh cheese and plain yogourt instead of sour cream all times and it is magnificent.

Strawberry Cream Roll

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2012
I followed the recipe but omitted gelatin since I had none and only baked for 10 minutes on middle rack. Turned out perfect. I used mashed strawberries and sugar mixed with whipped cream for the filling. I then iced the cake with whipped cream but felt it needed something so I covered the whole thing in grated chocolate, thats when I went overboard and diced chocolate cubes for the top and followed with candied chocolate eggs around the base and sprinkled candy coating all over. When serving, I drizzled the strawberry juice I got from straining the mash. Too bad I didn't take a picture, it was a hit and spectacular!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
Made cookies as per instructions and was able to roll and cut them with cookie cutters without refridgerating them. Turned out beautiful. Was reluctant to take them out at 8 minutes so left them 2 minutes longer. Slightly crispy and delicious. Keeping this one.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
Followed the recipe and it turned out just lovely but I always use 3/4 cup of each sugar instead of 1 cup as I dont need it that sweet and I needed to bake mine more though, about 15 minutes and they were fine the next day.
