Applesauce Raisin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
This is really good bread. I added a glaze on top for a sweet kick. Medium heat, melt 1/4 cup butter, add 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tablespoon vanilla, 1/8 molasses. Drizzle.

Grandaddy's Sweet Potato Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Awesome!!! My co-workers loved this! A few things I will change though: 4 large eggs instead of medium eggs. Also, add a teaspoon of cornstarch to the sugar before mixing to minimize the weeping (syrup drops on top) of the meringue. But this was awesome!!! I just dipped a spoon in the meringue and pulled up to create the cute peaks. =) THANKS for the awesome recipe!

Eclairs II

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
OMG!!! They puffed out so much! =) it ended up looking like hamburger buns! Proportions are a little off: it can probably make 12 eclairs and I have a lot of left over filling. Nomz if you like vanilla pudding or if you have time to make a second batch of pastry puffs.

Annemarie's Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
This was an awesome recipe and a great hit at work. Some things to keep in mind: I mixed the flour, sugar and butter together on a chopping board with my hands, squeezing the mixture together. I then put the crust in the square pan and pressed firm. I noticed the edges were more crumbly than the middle, so I brushed it to the center and pressed to the edges until it was all solid. #2: Don't make the filling too soon. It only takes about 30 seconds to blend, so I had it sitting there for about 20 mins. Wait until about 17 mins after your crust had been baking before you start blending the filling. #3: Also, I didn't have baking powder so I scratched it from the recipe. The lemon bars ended up firmer and easier to cut and eat. Even though there was less filling than the crust, I think adding more filling would make the lemon bar too strong and sweet. The cookie crust helped take away some of the sugar and tart.

Spinach and Blue Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
The soup turned out awesome. After I had salted it to taste, I puree'ed the bacon in with the soup which made it a little bit saltier... Whoops. Next time I'll salt to taste afterwards. Great soup!
