Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
Very good! I used only about 1/3 cup cocoa, 2 1/4 cups flour, and buttermilk instead of milk. I also substituted about half of the sour cream with fat free plain yogurt, and used 4 teaspoons of vanilla extract I just frosted these with regular vanilla frosting from a can. Everyone loved these. I only wish they were more red.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
Bitter without much lime flavor. I had to add a lot of grated lime zest to get more flavor, but I should have added some sugar too, because this wasn't sweet enough. It also didn't set very well. I baked it for twice as long as it called for and it was still a bit runny. Since I had 5 extra egg whites after making it, I decided to make a meringue by beating the egg whites with 1 1/3 tsp cream of tartar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and half cup of sugar. Then I put the meringue on top of the pie as soon as it came out of the oven, then baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. The meringue adds a lot!

CARNATION® Famous Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Really good! I only used 1 cup of sugar, and it was plenty. I also used fat-free evaporated milk to make it a bit lighter. For the marshmallows, I ended up using 1 cup regular marshmallows and 1 cup marshmallow creme, since that was all we had. Still turned out great!

Original Chex® Party Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Instead of using seasoned salt, I substitute celery salt. Also use garlic salt instead of garlic powder, and add about 3/4 Tablespoon vinegar.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
Flavor was good, but mine didn't set very well. It wasn't very dense, it was kind of mushy. I didn't have any trouble with cracking or anything. I used a water bath when I baked it. Also reduced the sugar to 1 1/4 cups. Didn't taste quite like the cheesecake I had in New York, but it was good nonetheless.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
I've made this recipe for a couple of years now. While the original is good, I prefer to add more sugar and spices to give it more flavor. I also add a bit off allspice and nutmeg. Turns out great!

Grandma's Lemon Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
The filling is excellent! The meringue is a little strange to me though, it was kind of liquidy.

Caramel Apple Bars II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
This is not a good recipe at all. For start, you need WAY more apples than called for. Secondly, the caramel is extremely difficult to spread over the apples. And finally, it didn't even taste that good at all. I wouldn't recommend this recipe to anyone. It was not to my liking.

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
Not that awesome. Tastes a lot like orange juice. It needs more spices in my opinion.

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
I reduce the sugar to 2/3 of a cup, and I also reduce the flour to 2 cups and increase the cornmeal to 1 and 1/3 cups. Next time I would also maybe like to try substituting buttermilk for the milk. Good recipe though, I do like it! It's very moist!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Very good apple crisp recipe! The topping is nice and crisp. I used 12 small/medium apples and used only 2/3 cup of the white sugar called for, and it tasted great! I've actually used the recipe for this topping to fix some of my other recipes that haven't turned out good. This is a go-to recipe for sure!

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
I would add a bit more than 3 Tablespoons of cornstarch, but not 5 Tablespoons as some others said to do. It became too thick with 5 Tablespoons. I also added a few dashes of nutmeg and 1 1/2 Tablespoons of lemon juice. I did not add the butter (I forgot) but it still turned out fine. This is a good generic recipe. Be careful to pile the crust up very high or else it will bubble over!

Graham Cracker Crust

Reviewed: May 28, 2011
Tasted good, but it didn't stick together very well. It also called for too many graham cracker crumbs. I'm wondering if next time I should try brown sugar to help it stick together and pack better?

Hot Cross Buns I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2012
Tastes just like raisin bread, only with sort of the texture of an english muffin. I added about 1/4 tsp of cloves. Pretty good!
