Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
This is a great recipe. Simple, straight-forward and comes out awesome every single time. It's no fail! Feel free to experiment with different summer fruits...rhubarb, strawberry of course...but blackberries, blueberries, raspberries can also be added along with, to make up the 6+ cups of fruit. I didn't have quite enough rhubarb in my garden to make up 3 cups, so I improvised with other berries and the results were fantastic. Simply the best!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
Absolutely the best apple pie, bar none. I know that there are an overwhelming number of positive reviews but I just felt compelled to add mine. This is definitely the only apple pie recipe I will ever make again. It was absolutely perfect and I followed all of the instructions as written. I used granny smith apples and added about a tablespoon of lemon juice to the apples, just so the filling wasn't too sweet as I didn't know what to expect with the caramel sauce. The pie was amazing in both appearance, texture and taste. Awesomeness!!!

Nana Dot's Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
Excellent flavour! Can also be made into scones if desired. I did have a bit of a more crumbly texture than I wanted...slicing was crumbly and messy. Anyone know what can prevent this as I really would like it to be a bit more 'together'. I did not over-knead.

Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
This is a great recipe as is unchanged! It is especially good when it is still warm from the oven. One loaf gone in minutes at family dinners. I am always asked for this recipe whenever I make it and bring it anywhere.

Mom's Ranger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2012
These were just mediocre. I found them to be very dry. Nothing special at all. Will not make again.

Banana Cake VII

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
I followed this recipe to a "t", making no substitutions whatsoever. I made two 8" round layers as I did not have the 9" pans. Presumably this would result in a higher, more risen cake....but noooo. This cake hardly rises at all, as a few other reviewers have said, therefore the 3 star rating from me. Everything else is like a regular banana cake, nothing too special. Very sweet. Chocolate icing was a nice compliment.

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
I read at least half of the more than 500 reviews before I made this. I'm not a huge fan of cranberries, but I was intrigued by this so very simple recipe. The greatest tip I got from the reviews was the one that suggested just topping with plain brown sugar....and this turned out to be a wonderful addition/modification. I did not use walnuts, I doubled the recipe and topped with brown sugar and oh man was it good! I will definitely be making this again and will also try with many other berries just for fun. I think it would work well for blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries (potentially) and I even think rhubarb would be fine as well. A great, great recipe. The simplicity of it makes it embarrassing when people ask for the recipe (as they did after devouring it at the pot luck). Love it, love it love!!

Raspberry Custard Kuchen

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly, using fresh raspberries and the pan size recommended. So far it is a bit too mushy for my liking. It is still a little warm though, so now I've put it in the fridge and hope that it will firm up a bit. Ok, back again to update following refrigeration. Yes, it did set and tasted wonderful the next day.

Texas Sheet Cake V

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
I was expecting great things according to all the rave reviews. Maybe it will taste better tomorrow, but I find this cake is lacking flavour. I followed the recipe exactly and made no alterations or substitutions. It turned out like it should have, directions were easy to follow, but I am not happy with the "bland" flavour of this cake. Unless it is a lot better tasting tomorrow I will not be making this cake again.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Recipe was easy yes, and it turned out for me....but I just didn't like this fudge at all. It just didn't seem like "normal" fudge to me...not the melt in your mouth taste of home made fudge. It seemed too dense and heavy or something, kind of like store-bought icing in a jar, but more solid & set. I much prefer fudge made with icing sugar. This was my first fudge made with marshmellow creme, so maybe that was the part that ruined the flavour for me. I was very disappointed with it and will not make again.

Breaded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
These were great, absolutely the best! People in my house that don't eat brussel sprouts ate these and actually said they were good. Next time I'm going to try this recipe with cauliflower as well!
