Rachel's Cream Cheese Fruit Salad

Reviewed: May 14, 2003
This recipe was ok. I doubled the recipe to serve at a pitch in dinner. Really you cant go wrong with the wonderful blend of fresh fruits, but here are a few of my suggestions to make it better. First, per the advice of others, I omitted the pretzels and I didnt miss them. Second, the cream cheese sauce made this dish very soupy. Too soupy for my taste. Because of this I sliced a store-bought angel food cake and served the dish as a sauce to be poured over the cake. I also feel that mixing the sauce seperately and serving it over individual cakes with the fruit would create a great variation of strawberry shortcake. In short, the ingredients were wonderful and tastey, I just didnt like it served alone in a bowl.

Caramel Chocolate Corn

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2003
I didnt love this recipe. Microwave recipes are difficult and leave a lot of guessing because they arent all created equal. I have a 1000 watt microwave and reduced each cooking time by more than a minute and the popcorn still scorched. It did, however, stay crisp. In fact, I had no trouble with my popcorn being gooey or soggy. Still, after tossing out the burned kernels, my husband really enjoyed the treat. He said it reminded him a lot of Cracker Jacks. Unfortunately I never liked that snack either.

Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2002
I like a recipe that works the FIRST time. I made this pie exactly as the recipe stated and it turned out perfectly. It easily filled my pie crust to the brim, set up beautifuly and tasted great. I topped it off with my own recipe for cream: 1 cup of cold heavy cream, 3 Tbs of powdered sugar, 1 large marshmallow melted and mixed in. I garnished with toasted coconut. Even the first slice looked gorgeous when I served it. I would definitely recommend this recipe!

Buttercream Icing

This recipe is easy and delicious. I used crisco butter flavored shortening and it was perfect. Great flavor and consistancy. I will definitely use it again and again.

Italian Wedding Cake

Reviewed: May 10, 2001
This cake is wonderful! I made it for my sisters birthday and it looked and tasted fantastic. The recipe is easy and the baking time accurate. The icing was smooth and perfect..so smooth in fact that I couldnt bring myself to mix in the chopped pecans but instead sprinkled them over the top and sides of the cake as a garnish. I also prepared it as a two 9 inch layer cake, instead of the three 8 inch layer which worked very well. My whole family loved it, even my sisters 3 yr old son :) I would defintely recommend this cake!
