Blueberry Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2002
Wonderful coffee cake with great topping! I made one slight alteration by substiting 2 tsp. vanilla for an equivalent quantity of the milk. I did notice that it took more like an hour to finish rather than 45 minutes, but that may just be my oven. Highly recommended.

An easy and very tasty soft cookie looking like an orangy hermit.

Belgian Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2002
Rich and festive looking Christmas bar. Easier than other Christmas bar recipes as it is in the one-layer, brownie type bar cookie family. Also a nice alternative/addition to spice cookies as the primary flavor is almond with just a hint of cinnamon.

Margarita Balls I

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2002
They did not particularly taste like margaritas (no lime) to me but I thought they were scrumptious nonetheless. I think I prefer them to the usual rum ball recipe.

Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2002
Easy and festive. The orange part can be tinted with food color if desired. A fun recipe to make.

Chocolate Applesauce Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2003
I made this after doing on search on cocoa and applesauce as I wanted to use up some of both. What a hit! I frosted it with the Quick Penuche Frosting recipe in the New Joy of Cooking, using the rum option in that recipe. Everyone loved it. I think that combination of cake and frosting would make a nice layer cake for the birthday of someone who likes those flavors. I might, however, be tempted to experiment with this recipe by cutting the applesauce by 1/2 cup and adding 2 eggs and a bit of baking powder to make the cake rise a bit more.

Swedish Angel Crisps

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2003
Excellent cookie. I used a red colored sugar sprinkle for the holidays in place of the white sugar and they looked really pretty, too.

Orange Marmalade Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2003
Delicous cake, but it stuck to my non-stick Nordic Ware bundt pan even after greasing and flouring. Will make it in a removable rim tube pan next time. The recipe should be increased by 50% to make a decent sized cake. I used a confectioners sugar/lemon juice/orange peel glaze, which complemented it nicely.

Spring Biscotti

Reviewed: May 5, 2003
These were wonderful. Only criticism I have was that the two three-inch logs make a small number of somewhat clunky biscotti. Next time I'll bake them in three two-inch logs instead, to yield a larger number of smaller cookies.
