Grocery Store Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
I'm surprised this gets rated quite so highly. I wouldn't say that it tastes just like the grocery store icing, but I would say that it gets close. I don't think it gets quite as sweet as the store icing, which you would think might be a good thing, but then to me it tastes like eating shortening (kind of bland). My family did like it, though. However, it does turn out extremely light and fluffy, and it's easy to work with. Also, if you add as much vanilla as suggested, it will not be a pure white. A suggestion I'd make is to first whip the shortening, butter and some of the sugar before adding the water and vanilla. Otherwise the oils are too firm for the liquid to incorporate right away, and the water and vanilla end up splattering everywhere.

Blueberry Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2014
This recipe does not work well with Canadian-milled flour. I mixed the recipe exactly in the amounts as written, but the batter I ended up with was thicker than any batter for muffins I've ever seen.

Christmas Pastels

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
These were not bad. They look pretty because of the colour, but I used cherry Jello, and it had a tiny bit of a sour aftertaste. I'm thinking lemon or strawberry might be the ideal flavour for these?

Purple Plum Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
I was quite disappointed by this pie. In fact, I'd say this is the only pie I've ever made that I haven't been very pleased with. The filling was extremely gooey, and I thought at first that maybe the plums I had used were extra juicy. But I had a small amount of the topping left over which I just put over some sliced peaches and heated up--they were gooey, too! Next time I'll stick to my mom's traditional mix that I usually stir in with fruit pie fillings.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
I've made these many times. A few times I thought I might improve on the recipes--don't bother trying--you can't!!! It is awesome just the way it is. Everyone loves these and they are so chewy.

Grilled Ginger-Peanut Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
My whole family (even picky kids) loved this! I baked it in the oven since it's winter time right now. Turned out perfect. First time we've finished the whole tenderloin in one meal.

Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I didn't use the beer--I just used water. It turned out great! Made more than enough to cover a whole cookie sheet.

Nutty Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
Delicious! I didn't put in the walnuts, but it was really great without them. This is the best apple crisp recipe I've made.
