Amaretto Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2003
Very moist cake, took other reviewer's suggestions and cut the oil back to 1/3 C, and added water depending on consistency of cake batter. I had some leftover shelled walnuts that I mixed with some store bought caramel syrup (enough to cover the nuts), a dash of almond extract, and about 1 tsp (maybe less?) of Amaretto. After I poured the batter into mini bundt pans, I spooned the nut mixture on top and baked for about 30 minutes. (Your baking time may differ, our oven's weird) Came out very tasty, and didn't need the glaze, although a light dusting with confectioner's sugar is a pretty touch. Can't wait to experiment with this recipe again. :)

Honey Duck

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2003
Outstanding recipe! I varied the recipe a bit by adding some ground rosemary and ground ginger inside and out, which always works nicely with oranges. I added water with a bit of orange concentrate on the bottom of the pan to use for basting, the rest of the concentrate I brushed over the duck, then lightly dusted a touch more seasoning on. My husband, 2 year old son and myself devoured the whole thing in one sitting, and if a picky toddler will eat this, then it deserves 10 stars! :) Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2002
The taste of these cookies was fantastic, easily better than bakery or cookie shops, which is why I gave it 4 stars. Very rich, buttery flavor. The reason I can't give it 5 stars is because they *look* awful! They were hard to get off the cookie sheet, broke apart very easily, and were way too thin on the edges. Maybe this was due to something I did (or didn't do). I'll be attempting this recipe again though, because they taste exactly how I wanted them to.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2002
Absolutely sinful. I've made this several times already, and it's always a big hit at dinner parties. I use cocoa powder instead of flour for the pan to avoid that white floury coating on the outside of the cake. I've substituted 1/2 C of Godiva liquor for the coffee flavored liqueur one time, the next time I used 1/4 C espresso, 1/4 C Godiva liqueur, and it tasted great. The perfect recipe for a chocoholic with a major sweet tooth! Thanks!

Apple Dumplings I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2002
This recipe did not live up to my expectations at all. For the amount of butter and fat that the biscuit dough has in it, I expected a much richer, tastier dessert. Even following other reviewer's suggestions didn't improve upon it. We won't be making this one again.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2002
Very easy to make, very tasty. I added a teaspoon of vanilla and a dash of nutmeg to the apple mix, along with an extra few pats of butter on top of the oat topping. I've also thrown in some golden raisins, maybe next time I'll toss in some chopped pecans into the topping...lots of room here for variation. I've even modified the recipe to use it with other fruits, like canned pears (or fresh when available), or canned peaches. Yum!

Linzer Tarts

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2002
Wonderful cookie. The dough can be a tiny bit tricky at first, but once you get the feel of it, it's easy. (All doughs seem to have their own personalities) The cookie part came out light and just crispy enough without being brittle, not too sweet, with a lovely flavor from the almonds. I used seedless raspberry preserves in my tarts, (personal preference) it makes spreading the preserves and assembling the cookies easier. Even my Grandmother was impressed, and she's one of the most accomplished cooks I've ever met. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2002
WHAT A HIT!!! I added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract into the syrup mixture, and followed another reviewer's tip to pour half the mixture over the apples before topping the pie...I also used a pastry brush to evenly distribute the syrup over the latice crust. This is the BEST apple pie I've ever had, and my husband, the apple pie snob, is in heaven. Thanks for this recipe, it's a keeper!!!
