Chocolate Orange Truffles
WHAT A MESS!!! In my opinion there is way too much liquid in this recipe. I planned to make these for my husband for Valentine's Day. I followed the recommendations submitted by other reviewers and chilled well/froze etc. I understand that weather conditions etc. can play a big part in the success or failure of a recipe but I could tell from the very beginning that this was not going to work because there was too much liquid. I had planned on a "love basket" and these were going to be the center piece... in a lovely container. I actually made 2 batches, neither of which came out. (You definately want to double this recipe unless you want VERY tiny little truffles). I was desperate..... at this point my husband would be home in 1 hour and I was NOT going to the mall to pay way too much for the name brand chocolate. I managed to find some more chocolate and started over. I doubled the recipe. I cut the butter and the cream in half. I kept the liquor the same. I followed the directions as usual up to this point where you "try to shape them into balls." After all the ingredients were mixed I got out my large tub of powdered sugar and just started adding it. I added and added and added until I came up with something that I could work with. I shaped them into balls and then froze them for approx. 10 minutes. I then dipped then in the chocolate. The recipe needs a lot of work but the taste if WONDERFUL. My husband is somewhat particular and said immediately th

Santa's Favorite Cake
I am giving this 5 stars because of all the compliments that I received. I made this for a Christmas Eve party. Those who tried it really liked it... a lot. I personally am not a big fan of store bought cake mixes and was not really happy with the cake itself. When it first came out of the oven it was very dry. I thought it was not going to be good at all but I really wanted to try the icing so I made it anyway. I will have to say that after it sat a while the cake did not seem as dry and the icing is awesome... if you like peppermint, which I do. I am already planning on making this next Christmas. I am going to experiment with a homemade cake, though. I decorated it with peppermint candies and it made a very tall but very attractive cake. Next year I will also probably only make 2 layers because I could not get the glass cover on it... it was too tall and since we have to travel this is a problem.

Honey Wheat Bread I
This is the best wheat bread recipe I have ever tried. I made it "as is" with wonderful results. The second time I increased the honey to 1/2 cup, increased the yeast to 3 tsp, and added 1/2 cup oats, 1/4 cup wheat germ, 1/4 cup milled flax seed and 1/2 cup sunflower seeds. My husband raved over this, my 20 m.o. daughter said "yummy", and I smiled knowing how healthy it is for them. Thanks for such a delicious and adaptable recipe.
