Almond Butter Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
Nice recipe. I too used less almond extract (1 tsp). I added 1/2 tsp of vanilla and used all butter, except for 1/2 c of shortening. I iced buttersotched cupcakes with it and it was great!

Banana Cheesecake with Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
Tasted like regular cheesecake. The sauce has a milky consistency, but was good. I used a 10" springform pan, followed the recipes baking instructions, then lowered the oven to 200 and baked for an additional 45 minutes. Overall a great base recipe.

Seven-Up® Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
I didn't like the result, especially, after all the work I put into making it. It was very thick and dense, almost pasty. It also didn't have much flavor. My mother in law and daughter liked it, although they stated its lack of sweetness is what they enjoyed. Go figure.

Family loves these. I added pecans and reduced the oven temp to 350, as per previous review, and baked for the same time. They came out perfectly.

Fudgy Chocolate Cream Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
The pie was good. I made my own crust and topped with fresh whipped cream. I did think it tasted like pudding in crust though.

Carne Guisada III

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Delicious! I added a touch of cumin, garlic, diced bell pepper, and onion. Reminded me of food I used to buy in NY. It's very hard to find authentic Puerto Rican food in Georgia.

Ciabatta

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Fabulous! My sponge sat for 16 hours. I split the dough in two and baked on a sheet pan sprayed w/ cooking spray and dusted with cornmeal. It is very important to remember the dough is supposed to be wet and sticky, otherwise you wont get the nook and cranny texture.

Whole Wheat Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
I scaled the formula to 1 loaf, to test it out first. It was fantastic! I used instant yeas t(to skip the dissolving stemp) and mixed all the dry ingredients, then added the shortening mixture and water to mix. Big hit.

Day Before Pay Day Fried Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
Very good. I too used sesame oil and cooked the eggs in butter. I omitted the meat, since I used this as a side dish. I used celery, carrots, and onions.

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
I previously reviewed these and thought they were dry. I failed to realize I had used the sugar free vanilla. My mistake! I made these again with french vanilla pudding and they were outstanding! They stay soft and even better when you add nuts.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
This was a delicious dish! I used fresh green beans and also reduced the sour cream amount. However, I felt the green beans would need a little more moisture, because they were fresh. So, I added a touch of heavy cream as well. I also subbed fried onions. They were mixed with the green beans and on top. The green beans had the perfect bite and the fried onions added the additional flavor and salt needed. Far better than any canned soup recipe!
