Choc-Oat-PB Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2000
YUMMM!!! They are indeed better than the no-bake cookies! I made them with crunchy peanut butter... and will be making them again! As sweet as fudge but with that "little extra"!

Simple Maple Syrup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
Really easy, really simple, quick, and doesn't crystallize. I didn't add butter or anything else, just made the recipe as presented. Great on pancakes!

I thought this recipe was great, quick to make if you have some leftover rice, and I added some cinnamon and nutmeg because I just had to :) Thanks a bunch!!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
Oh Yum! We ALL loved them (hubby, me and our daughters which are sometimes picky). I reduced the sugar to one cup, didn't add nuts (not popular with the under 10s in this house), and didn't bother with the icing. I wanted to use them in our girls' lunchboxes, and couldn't justify adding icing. Next time I will try the recipe with half oil, half apple sauce too as I think it would still be nice (but I like sticking to the original the first time). The brownies were not crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside, but a nice chocolaty treat. They freeze well and defrost nicely in the children's lunchboxes. I packed my zucchini fairly well when I measured them, and put them in with the oil/sugar mixture and had no problem whatsoever with my batter. I'm about to go share that recipe with friends now. Thank you Marian!

Chocolate Pudding Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
This was great! A bit weird to make but so quick and the results are very nice (and oh-so-chocolatey!)! We didn't notice any scorched taste, mixed everything in the pan, just as per the instructions, made the mistake of putting the whole 1/2 cup cocoa in the mix, so I just added another 1/4 cup on top and it was still great! (Will do it right the next time though). I also didn't have any mini chips so I used regular ones. We all loved it. Next time I will make it with the children as it's so easy and fun to make, and quick!! Thanks Carol!

Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
Yup, we really liked this one, I needed it for a cake so I added a bit more milk (also I was only trying it so I scaled the recipe to 1/4 of the recipe). I'll be making the full recipe this weekend for our daughters's birthday cake (twins). I liked how it is a stiff icing though, no smudges when it needs to be transported to the party venue! Update 10 October 08: When I made the full recipe to ice cupcakes (Fudge Cake recipe on Allrecipes) I didn't alter the recipe at all and it was really good to pipe (though my piping does need more practice!).

Easy Cinnamon Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
This is not a boiled fudge, therefore it doesn't have the same quality, but it doesn't mean it's not yummy. I put a heaping teaspoon of cinnamon (because I love the stuff!) and no nuts as I didn't have any. I am making it again to take to work this week (it was a hit at my craft club!). I took a shortcut, I microwaved the butter and then added the milk to it, I use skim milk powder to make my milk, and used a wee bit more powder than what is required for 1/4 cup of milk. I sifted all my ingredients in a bowl, mixed them gently, and then added butter/milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stirred with a wooden spoon until all was homogenous. I then poured it in a baking paper lined bread tin, so I had a nice thick fudge (as opposed to more pieces and thinner) which I cut in about 1/2 in. squares. This recipe's a keeper!! (wonder what it would taste like with different spices instead of cinnamon!)

Sweet Chili Thai Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
Dipping sauce more than "pouring" sauce but can be thickened with more cornstarch. Nice to not have all those additives in there too, compared to the store bought ones. If your chile peppers are very hot, the sauce will be too. Mine is just bit too hot for me, but great for DH, I used three small very hot peppers - two of them without the seeds - and one larger, milder one, with the seeds.

Chocolate Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
I made it as per the recipe and it was really nice. It's got that dark chocolate taste which Hubby and I like a lot but the children liked it too. It was very quick to make, and also seems to have improved from being stored in the fridge for a couple of days, it almost seems as it thickened a bit (probably from being cold). It is a thin sauce, not the kind of stuff you buy in stores. I like it that way, a bit goes a long way. We'll be making it again. And like KRYSTENL said, it makes wicked chocolate milks!

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Really nice, the best PBCookies recipe I've made so far. Will also try with suggestions but made it as per the recipe, did not overcook, and they were great (and looked really good too!)

Crazy Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2004
Great recipe! I was very careful to use the right measurements living in Australia (our cups and US Cups are slightly different) and it turned out PERFECT! I did use a glass pan too and greased it, cooking at a lower temperature. Made the "Busy Day Cocoa Icing" to go with it. We had a party for our twin 6yo daughters this weekend, 24+ children and parents, some children with egg allergies, and everyone LOVED the cake, they said it was moist, and that you couldn't tell it didn't have eggs. I will be making this one again!! My friend whose daughter is allergic to eggs wants the recipe! Of course I'll share it with her!

Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
Made them without raisins as the "under 10's" in this house don't like them, and OH WOW!!! Yummy! Hubby and I had a few while they were still warm!!! That's definitely going to be a repeat recipe! Very very nice! Thanks for the recipe!! (edit: I came looking for a recipe, having forgotten I'd bookmarked and reviewed this one already and the 2nd try was just as great as the first!! I did use choc chips this time instead of raisins, now this recipe is going in my recipe binder for good!)

Oatmeal Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2005
We really liked those. Not too sweet, not too peanut buttery, not too chocolatey, just really nice, and soft and crunchy at the same time. Mine looked nothing like the ones in the photo, but were still quite edible :) My batter was of a great consistency, I had no problems with this recipe (unlike other people did). Might add chopped pecans to them next time, for extra crunch. Yes, we'll be having them again! I also froze half the mixture to cook at a later date and that worked really nicely too. I chopped slices of the frozen dough and baked as per the directions. Yum!!!

Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
We loved it. Don't know why some people didn't like it, or how come it came out dry for them, not all ovens bake evenly, and mine is a very difficult oven, yet this cake didn't burn, baked perfectly and had a fudge cake texture. I baked in two round pans, which I had buttered and floured, and we're making again this weekend for our birthday party. It was also really nice to come across a recipe for a chocolate cake (with eggs, I tried eggless ones too which were really nice, on this site) not made with actual chocolate, and NOT from a PACKAGED MIX! Thanks a bunch for the recipe!! I might have to try those as cup cakes (adjusting cooking time of course) as I think they'd be FANTASTIC! Update 10 Oct 08: Made them as cupcakes and they turned out amazingly well! Had to adjust cooking time, but they were a HUGE success, piped some Decorator Frosting from this site http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Decorator-Frosting/ and they were easily transported to the party venue, the icing didn't stick to the plastic wrap at all. I'm one happy camper!

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2004
Excellent recipe. I made it with low-fat mayo and potato and leek soup (that's all I could find) and it was perfect. We had a birthday party for our 6yo twin girls and all the parents raved about the recipe and want a copy! I'm making it again for a monthly meeting of crafters in two weeks! I feel confident they will also love it. I did cut an extra baguette in half then in slices (to make semi-circle pieces) as it did need more bread for dipping, than just the inside of the round loaf.

Mother's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2000
That doctor is one doctor I'd trust!!! This recipe came out perfectly every time I've made it. I've been making it for my daughters since they were about 1 yr old (they are 18 months now) and they love it, so does my husband. One time, I didn't have quite enough bananas so I added pureed canned peaches to make up the missing bit, it was very nice too. I've been making it without the nuts for the benefit of the little ones. I have also used a bit less sugar with perfect results. This bread looks great when you take it out of the oven, nice and golden! Highly recommended!

Squash Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2000
This pie is gorgeous! I made it in a "Marie cookie crust" (can't get Graham crackers here in Australia) and the pie tasted really good!It was delicious and not overly spicy like other recipes. It also looked really nice when it came out of the oven! Thanks for submitting this recipe, Carol! My toddlers don't eat this yet but I'm sure it's a taste that would please most kids too so I have to give it a 4 for that section :o)

EAGLE BRAND® Chocolate Fondue

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
Can't say I would give this to my family every day, as it's very rich (the description suggests "for after school snacks"!)... but My oh my! It's YUMMY! A bit too thick, I had to thin it down with milk too, next time I will cook it for less time (I think I was waiting for it to boil, and cooked it for more than 5 minutes... I'm glad it never boiled as the other recipe I tried, I burnt!). I will definitely make this again, for a special occasion!
