Lemon Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
Great recipe! I made these last night and tried them today and they are delicious. I made one alteration to the recipe by using half a cup of applesauce and half a cup of butter in place of a full cup of butter. I find the applesauce keeps the cupcakes and cakes more moist, makes them more healthy, and you don't even miss the butter. Next time I will add more lemon juice and lemon zest as I like a stronger lemon taste. I made a lemon buttercream frosting to go with them that was excellent (3.75 c. Confections sugar, 1 c. Butter softened, 1 tbsp heavy whipping cream, 1/8 tsp salt, 1 tsp vanilla, and juice & zest of 1 lemon). I'll be making these cupcakes again. Thanks!

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Really delicious banana bread! I've tried many different recipes and this is now my favorite, along with the rest of my family. I made a few modifications to make it a little healthier (and because these were the ingrediants I had on hand): used whole wheat pastry flour instead of cake flour; added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice; used 1/4 c. butter and 1/4 c. applesauce instead of 1/2 c. butter; used approx 2/3 c. sour cream and left out the buttermilk because I didn't have buttermilk on hand; instead of all white granulated sugar, I did half brown sugar and half white granulated sugar. I absolutely loved the banana bread - full of banana flavor, moist and dense, and all around delicious!

Greek Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
Delicious recipe! I shared this with my co-workers and they loved it. Some reviewers mentioned it being a little strong with the vinegar flavor, but that was a big hit amongst everyone that tried it. Also, I substituted sun dried tomatoes in place of cherry tomatoes since I had them on hand and it tatsted great. Thank you, this was wonderful!

Michelle's Soft Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Great sugar cookie! After trying another recipe for sugar cookies that left me with sand like dough, I found this recipe and decided to give it a go. I followed the review of others and substituted cream or tarter and baking soda for 4 tsp of baking powder. I don't cook with margarine, so i used butter instead. Since I was testing these for flavor with the first attempt, I didn't chill and just dropped large spoonfuls on my baking sheets right after mixing all ingredients. I baked at 400 degrees for 10 min, as I was using double insulated baking sheets. They came out perfect! Slight crunch on the outside and a nice soft center. Thank you!
