Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
DELICIOUS!!!!! I had never tasted fondant period, but I've heard stories of people saying it looks pretty but tastes awful, so after reading many reviews, I decided to go with Kiele's recipe for marshmallow fondant, and OMG this fondant is simply delicious, easy to make, yes, a bit sticky, until it gets to the right consistency, and then is just dough. My husband loved it!!! I made two batches, on the second one (I didn't use my hands to knead, I used a fork, it kept my hands clean, and once it was no longer sticky, I used my hands) I just hate the sticky feeling (that's why I don't eat mangos, unless my husband peels and cuts them for me) LOL - Great recipe!!!!! Thanks Kiele!

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
WOW!!!!! This recipe is OUTSTANDING! I followed it to the "T" just the way Rick posted it!! I always made the Wilton "decorating class buttercream" I never fell completely in love with it, because it was waaay to sweet to the point we would sometimes scrape it off our cakes/cupcakes, but this one is amazing, the sweetness level is perfect, it spreads easy, and it is very easy to make. (the only thing is that is too thin for flowers and stuff, I don't think it would be good for such decorations, maybe if you put a little less heavy cream so is not as "thin" - I will try that and will let you know) {That's just my opinion, maybe it works for flowers just the way it is, I just got the impression that it probably wouldn't.} This recipe is a keeper, thanks Rick!!! :)

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
BLUE RIBBON RECIPE!!!!! This was my first cheesecake ever, Wow, it is delicious, and so easy to make. As some reviews say, YOU CAN NOT MESS THIS UP IF YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS STEP BY STEP, trust me! After reading some other reviews, I used "cinnamon-graham crackers" instead of plain graham crackers, and added some white sugar, about 1/4 cup, I also thought the crust needed a little more butter, so I added an extra tbspn for a total of three. I sprayed the pan with "bakers joy" spray making sure I sprayed the sides, as I read some people had trouble with the cake sticking to the pan sides. I always heard about the water bath and cheesecakes, and I had no clue as to how to "do the water bath" - nothing to it, I covered the bottom of my spring-form pan with two layers of aluminum foil and added boiling water to lasagna pan, and placed the spring-form pan right in the middle. As the instructions say, I had it baking for exactly 60 minutes at 350 degrees. I then turned the oven off and left it in there overnigt, about 8 hours, although it says 6 hrs is enough, I went to sleep and took it out in the morning, placed it in the fridge for about 3 hours; and..... Wow!!!! What an amzing cheesecake, no cracks, sinking, or nothing.. Thanks Chantal, and thanks to all of the reviewers for your tips!!!

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
Oooops!! First let me just say that these cookies are delicious, and the chocolate sauce is to die for!! Now, I actually made a big booboo, while my 16 month old daughter is tugging at my pants trying to stand up crying, my 10 yr old daughter is helping me make the cookies and is asking me which ingredient to mix in next, I told her "the condensed milk" and after she poured it in the bowl, I said Oooops we just messed this recipe up, the condensed milk was for the sauce not for the cookie dough; since I'm just starting to play with cookie making from scratch, I thought I would have to throw away the dough, but instead decided to give it a try and put them in the oven anyway.... I was pleasantly surprised to see them raising and looking like a cookie after 4 minutes of baking.... (I didn't think that was going to happen) The end result was a scrumptious very chewy chocolate covered cherrie cookie. I loved them, and so did my 10 yr old! But next time I want to follow the recipe the way it should be, I'm sure they will be awesome cookies. My advice though, would be to put more cherry juice to really taste the cherry flavor if you love cherries as much as I do, I actually put in about 5 fluid oz of cherry juice. DELICIOUS! Thank you for this awesome recipe!!! =)

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Awesome cookies!!! Easy and fast to make. Instead of omiting the vanilla and adding the almond extract, as some of the reviews suggested; I used both the vanilla and the almond extract! Oh, and by the way, I didn't use a cookie press, I made small balls of dough and used a glass cup to flatten them... since some reviews said that this recipe yields about 3 dz cookies and I didn't want that many, I cut the ingredients in half... I have to say that perhaps the cookie press uses a very small amonut of dough and perhaps that's why they get so many cookies, I got 15 cookies out of this dough, so I think the measurements are correct... My cookies were not too small or too big. They were Yummy! Hope this helps! =)
