Danish Kringle

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
So good! I made one kringle today, and it's already gone. I didn't have any sour cream for the dough, so I substituted a mixture of vanilla yogurt and baking soda (1 cup yogurt, 1 tsp baking soda) and it worked just fine. I would say to use your judgment on the filling. I added brown sugar until I was satisfied, and only used a tiny bit of butter, and still had some leak out.

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly, and I found it to be a bit bland. I added some cinnamon and sugar to the top for my last 1/2 dozen, and even that didn't help. Maybe some dried fruit or a cream cheese topping would pump up the taste a bit.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
These cookies are yummy! I only made a half recipe. I used applesauce instead of butter to cut down on the fat, and they turned out great! Since the applesauce makes it a little sweeter, I only used 1/2 c sugar. I also added baking powder in addition to the baking soda (1:1), and only used 3/4 c of chocolate chips.

Banana Waffles

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
Makes a yummy waffle, but I only got 3 mini-sized (little more than a 1/2 cup scoop of batter) waffles instead of 4. I mashed the bananas and mixed them in with the batter, as opposed to putting in slices. I used light vanilla silk since I was out of regular milk, and I also added 2 tbs of brown sugar to the recipe to give it a little sweetness. I found that it took 2 1/2 to 3 minutes on my electric griddle.

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
These were so good! I'm always looking for healthy/yummy snacks, and this is it! I used regular applesauce instead of unsweetened, and cut the sugar back to just over 1/2 cup total, and used an extra splash of milk. I also used whole wheat flour for the whole recipe. I'm going to try freezing some and see how well they come back to life :-)

Easy Tomato and Eggplant Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
I like eggplant, but I have to agree with some of the other comments. It's a bland soup, but it could be a good base soup. I had to add onion powder, garlic powder, garlic salt, basil, Italian seasoning, and some crumbles of feta cheese to make it something I wanted to eat.

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
Great cake, very moist. I used oil instead of shortening. I added the juice and pulp of one orange, used 2/3 cup of pineapple juice, 2/3 cup milk and about 1/2 cup of pineapple chunks. The batter was very watery, but it came out well. With these additions I was able to make 18 muffins. Topped with an orange butter-cream frosting, these were awesome.

Flip-Flop Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
This was a very tasty cobbler. I used fresh blueberries and used water instead of fruit juice. It did require slightly longer to cook than suggested, and was still a bit soupy. Next time I would reduce the amount of water. I would also suggest cutting back on the sugar. I love my sweets, but I think reducing the sugar to 1/2 or 3/4 of a cup in total would be plenty.

Sugar Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
These came out very well. I used 2 teaspoons of orange extract instead of adding lemon extract. It was subtly orange flavored. If you're looking for an extreme, I would suggest adding a bit more extract.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
I absolutely love these. I set my muffin pan on the stove while the oven is heating up and they rise beautifully.

One Egg Lemon Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
This was very good. It was fluffier than the standard pound cake. I made cupcakes with the dough and cooked them for about 25 minutes. I didn't have lemon extract so I used lemon juice to-taste. I also made a syrup using lemon juice, lime juice and sugar, heated until the sugar dissolved. I dipped my cupcakes in this and it gave them an excellent flavor. It was a little messy, but very tasty.

Key Lime Pie IX

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
This was very good. It set fine for me, but I cooked it a little longer than suggested and let it refrigerate for a few hours before I cut it. Next time I would use a little less juice. It was a little tart for my taste, but otherwise very good.

Soft Pineapple Cookies

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Good. Very fluffy. I substituted butter for shortening. I'd like to try it with white sugar. Keep them small. They tend to spread a lot. They seem to have a sheen to them while they're still hot, so it was a little tricky sometimes to just look at them and know if they were done.
