Amaretto

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2002
This really is very good. I love to make a drink called blueberry tea but it can get pricey. This recipe lowered that bill. Brew an earl grey tea bag, add 1 ounce amaretto, 1 ounce Grand Marnier, and a twist of orange. Now I just need a recipe for Grand Marnier.

Creamy Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2002
This is a really yummy cake. I did use half of the whipped cream called for and about 3 ounces less of the coconut. The next time I make it, I will probably use about 2/3 of the cream of coconut and milk mixture because it was almost a bit too much. I think you could reserve the remaining 1/3 cup of it for drizzling for a nice presentation. Overall though, this was a really good, quick and easy dessert to make that was eaten FAST.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2002
I added some cocoa powder for some extra chocolate punch. It turned out to be more like a brownie but was very good. I added a peanut butter and cream cheese frosting recipe I found in The Joy of Cooking - it calls for rum and was a nice compliment to the banana flavor.

Cooking Light magazine's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2002
I expected this to be dry but it wasn't although it certainly isn't as moist as most quick breads. I cut the sugar by 1/4 of a cup, used whole wheat flour, and used baby food applesauce. I also added 1/4 tsp. each ginger and nutmeg. It turned out to be very tasty - despite the whole wheat flour it was very light.

Creamy Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2002
This is excellent. I have a recipe for something similar called a "poke" cake - you can substitute the lemon cake with white or yellow cake, the lemon pudding with vanilla pudding and the lemon jello with strawberry or other berry jello and end up with something tasting a lot like strawberry shortcake without the fuss.

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2002
This is a really moist, dense, and flavorful cake. And not too spicy, since some carrot cake recipes call for nutmeg and allspice. I added unsweetened shredded coconut too and made it in a 13X9X2 inch pan, which made it super easy but added about 10 minutes to the baking time.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2002
These really do taste like the mall food court brand. But better because they are made in your home. Super simple for this first-time bread maker too. My entire family gobbled them up the first time I made them and they are picky.
