Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
These weren't my favorite, but everyone else who ate them loved them! I made two different kinds: German Chocolate Cake using pecan frosting dipped in melted chocolate and White Cake with white/vanilla frosting dipped in white chocolate. The White Cake ones were the biggest hit. I recommend making the balls small... if not, after dipping they will be too large. Dipping them is the biggest challenge. Here's my suggestions: FREEZE the balls before trying to dip them. Only take a few out of the freezer at a time to dip; remove more as you are ready to dip. Insert a toothpick into each ball and then dip, leaving a small area around the toothpick uncovered. Let excess chocolate drip off as much as possible and place on waxed paper. Do NOT remove the toothpick until the cake has softened enough to remove the toothpick by gently twisting without touching the balls. After you remove the toothpicks, use a small spoon and drop a small amount of melted chocolate over the area that was not previously covered. You can make a little "swirling" motion when you drip the chocolate ontop which makes it a bit "fancier" looking. I tried to use my candy dipping tools but it was impossible since the frozen balls caused the chocolate to harden quickly and stick to the tools. It was a mess. I almost gave up totally until I hit on the individual toothpick method.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
My son came across this recipe and decided to try it out. It is worthy of every one of the five star ratings it's received! The sauce is the best. We've started using it as a sauce for all pasta meals. We like to make a double batch of sauce and freeze portions to use later.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
Yum, Yum, Yum! I followed some of the suggested changes and still ended up with a moist and very tasty bread. I substituted 1/2 cup applesauce for 1/2 cup of the oil and changed the sugar to 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup Splenda, and 1/2 cup white sugar (because my applesauce was sweetened). This turned out great -- less oily than most pumpkin breads.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Excellent oatmeal cookie! I added 1/2 cup each of chocolate chips, raisins and coconut. I also used rolled oats instead of quick oats.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
These are awesome. I ditched my Mom's molasses cookie recipe I'd used for 20 years and these are the only ones I make now. I follow the suggestion of other reviewers and use orange juice instead of water.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
I make these ahead and freeze them every year without any problems. You do want to make sure they are completely cool and the chocolate is firm before wrapping them up so they don't "sweat" and make the pretzel soft. I put them between layers of waxed paper and then put some plastic wrap on top.

Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
The crust is crunchy and buttery which gives it the "toffee" flavor. I used milk chocolate chips instead of candy bars, increased the pecans to about 3/4 cup and toasted them. I recommend cutting them while they are still warm then let them cool in the pan. After they cool and set it is difficult to make neat square cuts as they tend to break when cutting. I love them!

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
Super simple and one of the most requested cookies when I offer to bake. They're not my personal favorite but everyone raves about them.
