Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Very good recipe all around. But I agree with others that have previously reviewed this recipe, if you prefer a less sweeter cornbread only use a third of the recommended amount of sugar. Otherwise I wouldn't change a thing.

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Good recipe as an alternative to cream cheese frosting especially if you are looking for a consistancy that is light and fluffy. The taste of the cream cheese does come through so I have used 1 cup of confectioners sugar in place of the 1/2 cup granulated sugar with better taste results. It works well with red velvet and carrot cakes and as a topping over cheesecakes. It is somewhat sturdier than whipped cream alone but I recommend the addition of 2Tbs piping gel if you plan on decorating the day before serving. It will hold up much better and for much longer.

Rainbow Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Excellent recipe that I have used successfully for several years after first finding it here on this site. In fact, it was my search for such a recipe that led me to make AR the first place. I have had to customize it for the size of my baking pans over the years because I can never make enough of them. I have used milk chocolate chips and had better success without having the chocolate crack on me while cutting. No need to pre-cut as one reviewer had suggested unless you wish to turn these into some type of petit fours. Using and good sharp chefs knife will give you a better cut when slicing. I stick with the traditional apricot and raspberry jams (my preference). I certainly recommend this recipe to anyone. My family and friends can't get enough of them.

Unbelievable Fish Batter

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
This is without a doubt everything it claims to be. But I too recommend cutting back on the baking powder or it will indeed be bitter. I happen to be a fan of cornmeal in my batter so I substituted some in place of some and it was very tasty.

Pastitsio II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Very good recipe. However, if you're not a fan of nutmeg it would be a good idea to omit it altogether. I will make this again minus that particular seasoning. I did however add fresh oregano (dried is fine too) to my meat and it really enhanced the flavor.
