Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
This was a great recipe, very true to all things I consider a tres leches cake should be: rich, creamy, sweet, etc. I followed another reviewer's advise to trim the sides off the cake so that it really absorbed all the milk. My only complaint is that I found the recipe just a little bit too sweet. I think next time I might put a little less condensed milk. Great recipe!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
These were amazing! I was hesitant to even try biscotti, these are the first I've ever made and the recipe was perfect! I substituted pecans for the pistachios, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. The whole process was much easier than I expected -- even cutting through the loaf -- no crumbling at all! Delicious! Update: I've been making these for several years now. I make them all the time and this is my TOP cookies recipe. I love that they use olive oil instead of butter. They are a relatively health treat, the recipe is perfect as is, and you can sub any kind of dried fruit and nuts. I've done cranberry pecan, apricot pecan, prune walnut, ,etc. Anything is delicious! People love them, and I actually find the whole process of making them straight-forward and quick.
