To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2013
Great recipe! I use olive oil instead of vegetable and skim milk and these come out beautifully plump and fluffy. A good alternative to the crumb topping is to sprinkle a little sugar in the raw over the top before cooking. I use the large muffin pan and these come out better than any muffin I've ever had. Use a little more baking powder by rounding the teaspoon instead of leveling it off. If you want to make a cranberry orange version, add a teaspoon of orange zest and substitute the milk for orange juice. Don't use the crumb topping though, sprinkle with the raw sugar instead.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This is my go to recipe for banana bread now, sooooo good. I don't know why it's commonly believed you can only use over ripe bananas in banana bread. I prefer to use regular ripe bananas with little or no spots on them. They mash up fine and taste better in the bread.

Eclairs II

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
This only gets 4 stars because the chocolate topping was VERY gritty. If I make these again, I will look for a different recipe for the chocolate. Otherwise, the filling and pastry part were spot on and very good. I showed my husband the cookies I made last weekend and he said, 'you want to impress me, make eclairs'. So I did! He was suitably impressed. I was surprised how easy it was! I piped the dough using a plastic baggy and clipping off the end. Same for the filling as I didn't want to slice the tops off. Worked well, but you should really get a proper pastry bag if you want to do it right.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
This is the most outrageous chocolate cake I've ever made and by far the most chocolaty. It was amazingly moist and was pure decadence. I topped it with the satiny chocolate glaze (recipe on this site) and sprinkled chopped glazed walnuts mixed with mini semi-sweet chips. It looked like a work of art and I almost hated cutting into it. I think next time I want to impress someone, I'll make this. It's an eye-popper both in looks and taste.
