Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
Used this recipe for the top of my daughter's princess castle cake (bottom was David's yellow cake). I have baked store bought and from scratch chocolate cake many times, but this is fantastic! At least I know what's going into the cake and it's from my own pantry. I loved how this cake turned out! Just the right amount of chocolate. My daughter is a chocolate lover (just like mom). Followed the recipe, and the end result was a moist, just enough sweetness, and delicious chocolate cake. I baked the cake for 35 mins (older oven) and turned out fine. I used a stick to pierce middle of cake around 30 mins time, and came out unclean, so baked for another 5 mins. The recipe is easy to follow. I decorated castle cake with buttercream frosting. I will continue to use recipe and recommend to friends. I post post pic of cake soon. Thanks for recipe.

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
I made this cake for my daughter's 5th birthday. She asked for a castle cake. This recipe calls for a lot of egg yolks but now I know the reason. It's quite a delicious and moist cake. I doubled the recipe (used this cake for the castle base) and used 9 x 13" pan. The cake turned out well but I have to remember to invert cake onto a cake board instead of cooling rack as cake broke apart a bit. Not to worry though, easy to fix with icing. I didn't find the cake to be dry, a bit dense but just what I needed. You need to make sure to follow recipe and when cake top springs back or stick inserted to middle of cake comes out clean (this is what I did) remove from oven (prevents dry cake). Definitely better than store bought, packed yellow cake. I will use this recipe again. My daughter thinks this cake is very yummy and she knows cake!

Rocky Road Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
I don't know what I did wrong! The bars were bland except for the extreme sweetness of marshmallows and chocolate on top. Will need to try out another RR bar recipe, haven't given up yet!

Butter Tarts

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Excellent recipe! Easy to follow and the kids loved the taste. I added unsweetened coconuts and it was a hit! I did bake for 25 minutes and the tarts came out light/medium golden brown. I guess it all depends on your oven. I will make this again.

Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
I had my in-laws and parents over for Thanksgiving! What a great recipe! I also stuffed turkey with 2 chopped granny smith apples and used fresh herbs such as sage and rosemary (made a big difference). Make sure you rinse of brine well after soaking for 12 hrs, and definitely leave in fridge for at least 2-3 hours before roasting. I placed turkey on a rack and like the recipe states, turn over 2/3 of the way during roasting. I used two big bbq forks to turn over the turkey, and it was not difficult. Basting turkey with melted butter browned the turkey and this is reason you need to turn over, and baste rest of turkey. I will use this recipe again for Christmas dinner.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
This is a great banana bread recipe. Delicious, moist and recipe was easy to follow. However, maybe it's my oven (7 yrs old) but when baked at 350, the bottom of bread was still not fully cooked, but deep brown on the outside. I may have to lower oven temp and bake for 60 minutes. Adding chopped bananas definitely helped the bread have a concentrated banana taste (just how I like it).

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
This was very tasty and easy to make! But, the dough was too soft so I added a bit more flour.

New York Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2004
great cheesecake. Served it to friends and it was gone! Only used 1 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup of sugar (used sugar for fruit topping, so I didn't want the extra sweetness). I also used chopped almond nuts for the crust and worked really well. And baked for 50-55 minutes.
