Quite sweet and tender, despite only having wholewheat flour.

Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
I thought the peanut butter filling would be a little bit too much for me, so instead I melted down some chocolate with a bit of shortening and used that for filling. They taste amazing!

Golden Wedding Punch

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
I made this for a party over the weekend, and it definitely was not the star of the show. It came out rather sour, and I still have half a bowl left. Nobody made any comments on it or got a second glass, as far as I could tell. A couple people asked for tap water instead.

Almond Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
I've made this salad twice and it's been a hit both times. I'm not a huge fan of salads myself, but I find this a lot more appetizing that most. The honey vinaigrette is awesome, and my boyfriend's mother even asked me for the recipe, which I kind of felt silly doing, since it's so simple.

Baked Alaska

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
The 1 tsp almond extract was far too much; the flavouring was overwhelming, and made it slightly sickening after the first few bites.

Pumpkin Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
I have a friend who absolutely loves pumpkin anything, so I made a double recipe of this in two 13x9 cake pans for her birthday and stacked them. I baked the cakes for 25 minutes, and the tops were quite brown. However, when I levelled the layers off, I found the centres were undercooked a bit (probably because I used smaller pans than recommended). I scooped out the uncooked parts and filled the holes in with the cake scraps; nobody noticed. The parts of the cake that was well cooked were wonderful. It was moist, but still had the texture of a cake, and held up very well under the fondant, and with the carving. To me, the pumpkin taste wasn't very strong, and my boyfriend guessed that it was carrot cake. However, when I got the birthday girl to guess, she knew it was pumpkin on the first bite. I used a cream cheese frosting, not really following any particular recipe proportions, and flavoured it with a bit of lemon juice, cinnamon, and just a hint of ground cloves to complement the pumpkin; it turned out pretty well.
