Excellent, moist cake. Turns out perfectly every time!

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2007
Because I made this dish for company, I doubled the recipe and spread it in a 9x13 pan, which I set inside a broiler pan of water. I was afraid I might need to increase the baking time, but one hour was perfect. The directions were easy to follow and the result was out of this world. Everybody agreed that this corn cake was better than what the restaurants serve. I wouldn't change a thing!

Sausage Stuffing Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2007
These were very good, but I wasn't quite sure how to rate them because I wasn't sure how to classify them. In the end, I decided that although easy and tasty, they were neither the best meatball nor the best sausage appetizer I've ever had, so they get a four rating from me. Don't get me wrong - I would make them again - but I just don't view them as "The Best."

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
I took this cake to a party, and everyone seemed to like the flavor. However, I am giving the recipe four stars because I found it very difficult to make - not what I expected using a mix as a base. I won't bore you with all the problems I experienced, but the main one was getting the coffee mixture/filling to work between layers. Although I brushed on the coffee mixture rather than poured it, it still made quite a mess, and then the layers were so soggy that they crumbled when I tried to spread the filling on top. The end result was not the prettiest cake I've ever seen, but at least it tasted good.

Ravioli Dolci (Sweet Ravioli)

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
These cookies were incredible - adorable looking and a wonderful flavor! As mentioned by other reviewers, they are time-consuming to make, but they are great when you really need to impress. I took them to a party, and they were the number one favorite! I made the cookies 2" rather than 1-1/2" and used 1/2 t. cherry jelly on each, which seemed to work well. I was afraid the jelly would seep into the cookie and "disappear" from the middle, but it held its form nicely.

Swift Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2007
Try this recipe using fresh strawberries, as directed, and you won't be disappointed. I doubled the recipe for a party, and it disappeared! If it's this tasty with out-of-season berries, I can't wait to try it again in the spring. Naturally, when you add sugar to sliced strawberries, they're going to get juicy, and the flavor of the syrup is so good that I think it might make an interesting strawberry shortcake. It would probably also taste good with sliced bananas. Oh, I also toasted the cashews - yum!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2007
I made several changes to this recipe but loved the results! First, I substituted a package of Perdue turkey shortcuts (2 cups of meat) for the canned chicken and used reduced fat cream cheese. I limited the hot sauce to 1/2 cup, which was ideal for my family and guests. Instead of transferring the dip to a crockpot, I placed it in a baking dish and popped it into the oven so the cheddar on top looked nice and bubbly. We enjoyed the crackers and celery with the dip but surprise, surprise - my 4-year-old decided to dip an apple slice, and we loved the sweet taste with the spicy dip!

Broccoli Ham Ring

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
Beautiful, tasty and easy! I substituted boxed frozen broccoli with thyme for the fresh broccoli and honey mustard for the Dijon since that's more appealing to my kids. I also omitted the onions and added some dry thyme. It was a hit!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
This is a very tasty comfort food and a good way to use leftover ham. (I actually used the ham bone.)

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
I wish I had read the tip about piping the cream cheese into the olives because I had a terrible time inserting it without breaking the olives. I also broke a lot when inserting the "beaks," even after cutting a slit first. My kids thought these were adorable and enjoyed eating them, but I did find them a bit frustrating to make.

Snowman Party Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
I thought this dish was adorable and would rate it a 5 for presentation, but the flavor was not at all appealing. I also found it difficult to "decorate" the snowmen after cooking because the potatoes became a bit crusty on top. I had to poke holes with a skewer before placing the veggies and peppercorns.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
I made these cute crackers for a Christmas get-together. They are tasty but a bit messy since the spices tend to brush off after baking. They are also time-consuming to make since tortillas don't cut easily with a cookie cutter. I would make them again for a special occasion, but not for everyday munching.

Heavenly Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
A wonderful way to use leftover ham! The texture is very creamy and smooth. I may try adding a little mustard powder next time to give the casserole some zing. Also, I found that 5 lb. of potatoes do not fit well in a 9x13 pan, so I lined my broiler pan with non-stick foil and baked the casserole successfully with minimal cleanup.

Italian Wedding Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
Delicious and a big hit with family and friends! I had never eaten Italian wedding cookies before and wasn't aware that they were more like cake. For Christmas, I made red, white and green layers. I also added a little Crisco to the chocolate to help it remain soft and greased the pans after some initial frustration with the cookie/cake sticking to the bottom. We did not find these treats dry at all - in fact, they grew more moist as they sat because of the jam between the layers.

Swedish Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
I wasn't sure how I would like this "pie" since the crust is my favorite part of a pie, but my whole family really enjoyed it. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is more cake-like in consistency, so it helps if you don't think of it as a pie. In fact, I'm going to double the recipe for a 9x13 pan for a school function. As other reviewers have indicated, the baking time is too long. I baked it for less than an hour, and the top still came out too hard. I filled the pan with apples, so it was moist enough inside, but it did run over in the oven.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
Until now, my family has always been disappointed with my attempts at apple pie. Now I'm an expert! I can't wait to try this technique with other fruit pies to see if it works. (Oh, the only change I made was to add 1 t. cinnamon.)

Apple Butterscotch Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
I'm probably not the best person to first review this recipe because I made many modifications, but here goes. First, I used my own favorite crust recipe rather than the one listed here, and I made it for a 10" pie since I don't have the small pie plates. For the 10" pie, I used about 5 medium to large-sized apples and then doubled the remaining ingredients (except for the cinnamon - I used 1 t. because my family likes it). I also doubled the topping ingredients. The pie smelled wonderful while baking! When I pulled it out to top with the butterscotch, the apples appeared a bit dry, so I drizzled them with melted butter before sprinkling with the topping. The end result was very tasty - not the very best apple pie recipe on this site, but delicious nonetheless. My children really liked it.

Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This potato salad was wonderful - even better leftover. I reduced the sugar, as recommended by other reviewers and added real bacon bits to boost the bacon flavor without cooking additional slices. I also saved time by using sliced red potatoes (no peeling) and by substituting sliced green onions for the onions and parsley.

Bavarian Apple Torte

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This torte was delicious! Perfect for fall because of the apples, but would also work as a refreshingly cool summer dessert. Mine did take a very long time to set (I took it out of the oven at 90 minutes because apples began to burn)but that may be because I used reduced-fat cream cheese, which is what I had on hand. However, the end result was beautiful and tasty and received rave reviews!

Raspberry Custard Kuchen

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This dish was absolutely delicious - breakfast, dessert, it didn't matter! My family preferred it warm. The kuchen did take much longer to bake than stated in the directions - at least an hour. It also stuck to the bottom of the pan, so I would recommend greasing AND flouring the pan, not just greasing. It would definitely be best to make in the spring, when fresh raspberries are available, because it was quite expensive to make off-season. I have not yet tried it with frozen berries.
