Holiday Left-Over Sweet Potato Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
My brother asked me to make a Sweet Potato Cake he saw on a Paula something cook show, so after reading the recipe I knew I wasn't going to like it. So I made both, hers and this one. I followed this recipe almost to the T. The only thing I changed was that I used a can of sweet potatoes instead of cooking them myself. I took both cakes to the Thanksgiving dinner party and this one was a hit. It was gone before the other one was even 1/4 eaten. It is very moist and super delicious. Next time I will make it with Splenda as I am diabetic and shouldn't be eating this (but it is so good).

Egg-Yolk Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
This is very yummy. Made it for a birthday party along side another cake and they had another one there as well. Long story short, all cakes turned out weapons in a food fight that got out of control. This one however, was picked up from the floor by anyone who found a big piece because everyone who got a piece in their mouth and tasted it started saying it was very good. I was asked to make another one for our next get together and was promised it would be tucked away until all the games were done and over with.

Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Made this for a teen sleepover. Very very moist. I would have followed it exactly but my niece doesn't like coconut so we omitted it. Everyone LOVED it!! We frosted only half of it cause the other half was gone by the time it cooled down. All the girls took this address with them so they can save this recipe and make again with their families.

Broccoli Cheese Soup VII

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
I didn't have cheddar cheese like so many reviewers recommend so I made it with what I had, shredded mozzarella and provolone. I drained the broccoli as most reviewers said it was soupy. But everything else was followed as stated. IT IS THE BEST BROCCOLI SOUP I HAVE TASTED!!! And I love broccoli cheese soup and order it almost at every restaurant that serves it.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
Made as stated this is only a 2 or 3 star soup. But I managed to make it into a 4 star before my husband came home. I did tweak this recipe but only after tasting it and it didn't taste like minestrone, more like a bland tomato soup with onion. I noticed as it simmered that there wasn't going to be much liquid so I added 1 cup more broth and kept adding water as I saw fit (probably 2 more cups). Had to use a lot of salt as it lacked flavor and I am not a good enough cook to know how to use herbs or spices to add flavor to food. Way to many veggies. Love them but way way to many. I'll cut it down to half next time I try this (if I do). So finally it was done, and it was just alright, but it still lacked something. So I added lime to my dish (which I was wary of doing because I didn't know how good it would go with the Parmesan but it worked out). Ate two bowls. Husband ate without the lime and said it was ok for being my first time attempting this soup but he did eat another bowl a few hours later. Not sure if the servings are off or if it was the 3 extra cups of liquid added, but after 5 bowls of soup eaten, I still have over half the pot full. So if you live near me and want to try this soup, please come by for some.
