Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
NickyBaby61--I don't know if you made this mistake, but I slapped my own forehead when I realized it during my first batch. I accidentally mixed up my carton of heavy cream with my carton of buttermilk. So when I mixed the liqueur with the milk, the milk soured. And, of course, since it was buttermilk and not heavy cream, it never formed into a whipped cream texture. *Le sigh* But, I caught on pretty quickly what I did wrong, so that was resolved. As for my own opinion, the recipe is GREAT. I just like the cake to be more moist, so I tripled the coffee mixture (3/4 coffee, 3 tbsp liqueur). I saw another review about freezing the cakes a bit first, though, since the coffee might make the cake crumble a bit. I only read that today after I made the cake again last night. :-P I will remember that for the future. It's a fantastic recipe, otherwise, and it makes you look really pro (without having to go to school for it). The filling and frosting are to die for. I could eat them by themselves.

Wicked Soft and Uber Tasty Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
These are very good cookies! I was given some excellent baking tips and tried them out on these cookies--I think using those tips could improve any cookie you make... that is if you like soft & gooey cookies... Don't use those fancy new cookie sheets that are thick and insulated. Use the good old fashioned metal jelly roll pans. Don't grease the pans. Undercook the cookies by just a couple minutes and keep watching them for color changes on the edges. Pull the cookies out and DON'T let them sit on the pan--sitting on the pan hardens them and makes them crunchy, which is not a good thing if you like soft & chewy cookies. AAAAAND--instead of putting the cookies on a rack to cool, take a brown paper shopping bag, cut it up, and put the hot cookies on the paper. The paper soaks up some of the grease but leaves the cookies soft and YUMMY!

Honey-Garlic Glazed Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
My boyfriend begs for me to make these meatballs. I'd say this is definitely a recipe that gets me a good long backrub. :-)

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
I LOVE this recipe, and so does my family. I've brought it into work and my coworkers really like it. Though I should say that real lightweights can't handle the spice--which to anyone who doens't mind spicey food you wouldn't even know there was anything spicey about it. It's a great recipe and easy to boot!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
Not too shabby, though when I made them the batter was a bit thin. I usually think of fluffy pancakes as like big fluffy feather pillows. These weren't really "feather pillows," but they turned out well enough.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
I generally pick recipes on the website based on the overall rating and how many people have rated it. It's been a sure fire bet with me thus far, and every time I bake this apple pie I get compliments. It's the only apple pie I will ever make! It is phenomenal!

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
Great recipe, but do yourself a favor and use brand name Crisco--I made the poor decision to go with an off-brand shortening and my crust turned out terrible. With Crisco it's perfect.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
I get rave reviews every time I make these. They're so easy to make, but I try not to over-saturate my family with how tasty it is (don't want to spoil them too much!), so I try to reserve these potatoes for special occasions and holidays.
