Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
Excellent real cream cheese flavor, just the right consistency - thin but not too thin - and just the right balance of sweet and tart. This is a great frosting/icing for carrot cake and will be my "go-to" cream cheese frosting from now on! Also, unlike about 90% of everyone else who posts "reviews", I did not change a thing. That's what following a recipe is, folks. :)

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: May 3, 2013
This really and truly is the best carrot cake I have ever eaten. It is delectably moist and has just the right amount of sweetness. It is very, very rich, however, and extremely dense. My husband made this cake for my birthday and, had we known how thick and dense it was, we'd have halved the recipe. Our family of four couldn't finish an entire cake ourselves! I'd definitely recommend this recipe to anyone but if you're making it for a small, home gathering, half the recipe. As is, this recipe would be great for a large potluck or family reunion!

Crisp Peanut Candies

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
Thanks for posting this! My Mom used to make these for us when I was a kid and I misplaced my copy of the recipe! I can completely sympathize with how addictive these wonderful candies are.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2013
First of all, I'm not sure how the five star folks got a good muffin out of this recipe without heavily doctoring it with spices. I had to add quite a bit of pumpkin pie spices - cloves, more cinnamon, ginger, all-spice - to get any kind of flavor into these. Secondly, I made the "cream cheese filling" exactly as the recipe states. As most of the other three to one star reviewers found, it became basically like a cream cheese glaze once it melted into the strudel topping. I did make one alteration: I added toasted pumpkin seeds to the strudel topping (pre-packaged, David brand because I didn't have any fresh ones on hand yet) and they gave the topping a salty-sweetness that I really liked. The muffins are dense and, once properly spiced, are definitely great. Make sure you absolutely do not overfill the muffin cups; the batter is thick and you'll run out if you overfill them. All in all, a good recipe with heavy modifications.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: May 3, 2013
I made these for Christmas for the first time and I have to say, they definitely live up to their Blue Ribbon! They were so soft and so very, very delicious! Everyone raved over how good they were and this was the first variety of cookie to disappear. In fact, the kids actually asked me to make more of them! I was very impressed with the dough. I actually rolled these out and used Wilton cookie cutters. I had some trouble with the snowflakes but that was my fault for letting the dough get too warm. Other than that, these were absolutely perfect!

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
These were quite a hit over the holidays. I was a bit concerned when I first read the directions but decided to give it a go. They turned out wonderfully moist and ever so chocolate-y! My husband insists that I have to make these every year now. :) Thanks for sharing this recipe!!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
This is my family's #1 favorite recipe. Needless to say, I have made these scones countless times for home. They are also very, very popular with my coworkers! This recipe is delicious plain but also wonderful with additions of cinnamon/sugar, raisins, chocolate chips, dried cranberries, blueberries, and blackberries (I have tried all of these). These scones are also FABULOUS with jam. I should also add that these turned out wonderfully the first time I made them and have come out consistent every time since. So thank you, Rob, for sharing this excellent recipe! One thing to note: do not overwork this dough, it will cause the scones to become dry.

Wonderful Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I've made these three times now and they have come out consistently every time. They are perfect in my opinion - crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. My kids keep begging me to make them instead of pancakes! They are quite filling so we stash the extras (this recipe makes approximately 8 waffles with my waffle maker) in a freezer bag and the kids eat them up for breakfast over the week. And no, these are not "quick" waffles but the egg whites do make them super crunchy and light so I find the extra time spent separating and beating the egg whites are well worth the investment.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
This recipe is super easy to make and absolutely delicious. We made four pints worth (about 24 apples) just a few minutes ago and our kids were begging to taste and eat it right away. I did reduce the sugar to 1/4c to my family's tastes. I also, instead of ground cinnamon, boiled cinnamon sticks with the apples. So pleased with how this recipe turned out and I can guarantee I'll be making it for many years to come. Thank you for sharing with us!!!!!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
These cookies are absolutely fabulous. I've made them four times now and, each time, they've disappeared in record time. This is *THE* Snickerdoodle recipe, hands down. One thing I tried after the second time I baked these was to use a scoop to get consistent size (and consistent size = more delicious cookies to share). This recipe is perfect as is!
