Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2014
I've been making this same cake for at least 20 years. I've always left it in the pan, poked holes in the cake, and poured the glaze in - it fills the bundt pan but absorbs pretty quickly. My recipe calls for pecans, but it's otherwise the same. I've always made it a few days ahead of serving. Those that complain about the overwhelming rum taste are probably eating it real soon after preparing. This cake is a must for for my annual winter parties for several reasons. First, it tastes incredible and is super moist. Second, I can make it 2 or 3 days ahead without loss of quality. I store it on a plate, covered only by the Bundt pan, and it will stay fresh for 10 days - if it lasts that long.

Chocolate Cappuccino Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
This took a long time to prepare and to cook. Then again, all cheesecakes take a long time to prepare and cook. This one is definitely worth it. My second cheesecake ever and this was incredible. The resulting cheesecake is restaurant quality, fine restaurant quality. I could easily see this being served at $8 a slice and the customers thinking it was a great value. I love it when a great recipe makes an average cook look great.

Outrageous Warm Chicken Nacho Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
A basic queso dip with the addition of chicken. I liked it so much I made it twice.

Asian Beef Skewers

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
Really fantastic but I can't stop the skewers from burning on the grill. I served it with Thai-Style Peanut Sauce with Honey and they were a hit. I made way too many (half beef, half chicken) and had leftover uncooked meat. No problem, I pulled the meat off the sticks and stir fried in the pan. I used Sirloin as it was a lot cheaper than Flank Steak.

Thai-Style Peanut Sauce with Honey

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
This sauce is so easy to make and a killer in flavor. I made it for my annual winter party and had to give out the recipe twice. I served it with Asian Beef Skewers and it was a perfect match. I will be making this many times in the future.

Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
This is the first thing I've made with Quinoa. They are fantastic - and that's coming from a pure carnivore. I made them exactly like the recipe except that I subbed green pepper for yellow bell. The second time I subbed jalapeno for the yellow bell. They were both great. They freeze really well and thaw in no time. I will be making these for years to come.

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
The cupcakes taste delicious and are incredibly moist. They ended up on the small side. I was making a half recipe to see if they were worth taking to a something important. They are definitely good enough - next time I'll make enough mix for 36 and put it in 24 cupcake liners so that they are larger.
