Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
I bake and cook almost everything from scratch. I understand the importance of proper measuring and freshness of ingredients and I did not care for this recipe! To much flour not enough sugar and were it reads cut shortening till crumbs form. I found there not to be enough shortening for crumbs to form. Even while baking it smelled like bread. I strongly don't recommend.

Pineapple Cookies II

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
best pineapple cookie ever!! Well with some doctoring up. I increased the sugar to two cups and added an entire can of pineapple tidbits (20oz) juice and all. Also I used butter instead of shortning. no need for icing when you do it like this. very cake like which is awesome! can't say enough about them! great!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
first time making it and I love how easy it is. I haven't used it yet but will have to do an update tomorrow. *update* huge success! sweet but not to sweet like regular fondant. some advice when rolling it out (which took longer than stated, more like 30 min) sounds crazy but learned it in cake decorating through culinary... get a sock, put conf. sugar in it once done tie close. tap on counter for a thin even layer every time. between rolling it out continue to tap on counter and even on hands and fondant. helps with the sticking and you won't be wasteful. once you do this you will never go back to dusting counter tops by sprinkling flour/ sugar out.

Roasted Spicy Garbanzo Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
good but not wow... these beans have no flavor naturally so to make them tasty is no small feat. will do again but with much more seasonings. don't be scared to be heavy handed

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
Would give a higher score if I could. I did have some miss steps but with this recipe it was an easy overcome. I only had one small ripe banana, my quick fix was, I went looking through my son's yogurt for whatever banana flavoring he had. Banana creme pie is what I ended up using. I used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar. And for anyone who has a love of baking knows creaming sugar and fat is better than melted fat. Over all super, super moist.
