Texas Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2014
I followed this recipe to a "T"! Delicious! I used it on a yellow box cake. I always test new frosting recipes on box cakes. If it's a keeper then I'll bake a cake from scratch. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Next time I will double it though. As written it's not really enough to adequately frost a 9x13 cake.

Made this exactly as directed and it was wonderful! I did brush the top with melted butter while hot. Delicious!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
Baked it exactly as written and was underwhelmed. Very rich and tasteless. Too much sour cream, dry and bland. Next time I will make some adjustments such as cutting back on sour cream or using ricotta,adding some seasonings, more sauce and covering it while baking. I would give it one star but my 11 year old had seconds.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
A very yummy pretty cookie! I did add more cherry juice because I wanted to drizzle the tops not cover them with chocolate. I wanted to see the cherry. Next time, I might use milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet. I want a sweeter topping and the semi sweet still tasted semi sweet...not rich enough.

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
I loved this recipe. The dough is moist and very easy to work with. When I made my thumb print the dough stayed intact and didn't crack or seperate. I added almond extract, used raspberry preserves and drizzled the tops with a white glaze...very pretty and delicious!

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
too vinegary. I bought a mid-priced balsamic and followed the recipe exactly. My steak seasoning was not a salt base rub, but a pepper-based. Does that make a difference...does salt help neutralize vinegar? I would like to know what kind of seasoning others used? I would also like to know what or how to grade balsamic vinegar? Surely, price cannot be the only way to judge quality! This recipe needs some pointers added to the directions, please!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
I did everything it said except i omitted the cayenne pepper because of the kids. WHAT A HIT! Will surely make this again. I used the leftover chicken broth and used it instead of water when I made the rice. Great recipe for a cold winter Montana day!

Better Than Sex Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
The cake is good but its bland. I was hoping for a richer more decadent cake given the name. I thought the pineapple would provide it. If I make it again I'll make some changes to try and find a yummier taste. 1. The bananas are not good. They turn brown and slimy and do not keep well if the cake is not eaten right away. 2. The pudding is bland and does nothing for the cake so I won't use it again. In its place I want to try and find a cream cheese filling to place on top of the pineapple. 3. I might try brown sugar instead of white with the pineapple. 4. Use pecans. 5. Toast the coconut. I think with some changes this cake can become "better than sex" :) But not with this recipe.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
Fan-tab-u-lous! My elderly father was convinced they were HIS grandmothers recipe! I loved telling him they were and then watching him reminisce about how "gram made these cookies the size of a coffee can!" Amazing how food can evoke such memories! A definite keeper for my recipe box!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
these were a huge hit at christmas, just a bit too sweet for me. The second time I made them I pressed them out in a jelly roll pan and cut them into small bite size squares. YUM! Also, my kids liked the milk chocolate chips better than bittersweet.

Best Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I'd go 6 stars if I could. this is the ONLY frosting recipe I'll ever use. People who had trouble just didn't do it right. Cooking the flour mixture until very thick is critical for success as is beating the REAL BUTTER and sugar until the sugar has dissolved. I'd remind you to keep any leftover cake in the fridge but you won't have any left with this frosting! WONDERFUL!

Butter Cream Frosting I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I just made this frosting and I'm very disappointed. It tastes just like a plain old powdered sugar frosting that my grandmother used to make for graham crackers. What is the use of the egg yolks when all you need is powdered sugar and milk to get the same result. I'll never make it again.
