Deluxe Blackberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
Great recipe. I think making a puree with half the berries is a great idea. It definitely gives it a nice texture. I added an apple which I pureed as well. I also added 2 tablespoons of butter to the puree mix. I took the other reviewers advice and did only 1/8tsp of nutmeg and 1/4tsp of cinnamon. I think that was plenty and anymore that that would be too overwhelming. I also used lemon juice as I did not have blackberry brandy. My husband really enjoyed this and he is not usually a big fan of pies. I will definitely be making this again.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
This definitely deserves it's five stars. Very delicious and moist. Followed the recipe exactly and made 12 cupcakes (cooking at 350 degrees for 25mins) and also had enough batter for a rectangular pan but don't have the dimensions on hand - that took about 40mins to bake that. I used my food processor to shred the carrots so it was super easy. Also used the food processor for the walnuts until they were super fine because my husband and I like the flavor of walnuts but don't like to have chunky pieces when it comes to cakes - just a personal preference. Did the same with the coconut. I also boiled the raisins in orange/pineapple juice (didn't have just plain OJ) first, per advice from another reviewer. This recipe is a keeper. I was thinking of trying other carrot cake recipes from this site but I really may not need to. Did I already say it was delicious? :-)

Cappuccino Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
Yummy recipe! did half and half mini choc chips and regular choc chips. Should have put slightly less chocolate since I did this, because it was a little too much chocolate for me personally. Still a big hit. Will definitely be making this again and again.
