Dirt Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2014
I loved this! However, I left the butter out, because it just seemed completely unnecessary. Why add those extra calories when it tastes great without it? Layered the cookie crumbs and pudding mixture in a flower pot. A very fun and creative dessert!

Dirt Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2014
I loved this, but as written it could used some tweaks. I left the butter out, because it just seemed completely unnecessary. Why add those extra calories when it tastes great without it? I used one package of oreos (14 oz.) and that was plenty. Also, I think the recipe should only call for an 8 oz. tub of cool whip; I used 12 oz. and it made way too much pudding mixture. I couldn't fit it all in the pot. A very fun, creative and yummy desert!

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
These are very very moist and flavorful. I only used 1 cup sugar, which was enough.

St. Patrick's Day Zucchini-Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2013
P.S. I used more oats in place of granola...it was perfect! Unfortunately, these cookies didn't come out as green-colored as I would like, but you can still see the green specks of zucchini so it's okay. Their looks don't hold a candle to the taste!

Whole-Wheat Dark Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
I just made these yesterday and I really like them! The only thing I changed was to use one whole egg instead of two egg whites. These brownies taste like a cross between zucchini bread and fudgy chocolate cake. You can taste the zucchini just a little, but I love zucchini bread, so that was not a problem for me. I had no problem using only whole wheat flour, either. They are so rich, chocolatey, and moist that I kept going back for more!

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
Well, the idea of this ice cream is great. I'm a fan of peanut butter, especially with chocolate, but this ice cream had too much peanut butter for me. Next time I would probably cut the peanut butter to no more than 1/2 cup, maybe even 1/3 cup. But then, I usually prefer my chocolate to be the dominant flavor, so maybe next time I'll make a chocolate ice cream, add about 1/4 peanut butter to it plus the peanut butter cups. However, I'm still giving this 4 stars because it was good and rich, just not quite what I was looking for.

Homemade Maple Syrup

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
I came up with this exact same recipe and I think it's much better than the recipe on the back of the maple flavoring box! Tastes as good, if not better, than store-bought, and is "healthier" than store-bought, if that's the right word!

Boardwalk Quality Maple Walnut Fudge

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
This fudge is just fabulous!! I LOVE maple, and thought that 1 teaspoon maple flavoring would not be sufficient for me, so I put in a full tablespoon (3 teaspoons). I also cut the butter down to 2 tablespoons. It turned out perfect! Smooth, rich and creamy!

I made these at Christmastime and I'm so glad I did! They really are fabulous! My husband loves chocolate covered cherries, so these were a hit with him, too!

Brown Sugar-Caramel Latte

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
I enjoyed this just about as much as Starbucks' version! It's so easy, too! You're right, the battery-powered frother makes it extra special!

Lemon-Thyme Cornish Hens

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
I really loved the flavor, however the meat was not as moist as I expected. I would like to try this recipe on a whole chicken, too. It was very good.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
This is exactly how I always make grilled cheese sandwiches, and it always turns out perfect. I personally like to use whole wheat bread and sometimes add ham or turkey and tomato slices.

Maple Meltaways

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
Right out of the oven these were awesome, warm and chewy, but when they cooled they got very hard. I wish they'd stayed chewy.

Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
This is very similar to my favorite fudge recipe except mine calls for a teaspoon of vanilla to be stirred in at the very end. During the holidays I like to use peppermint extract in place of the vanilla, and sometimes omit the nuts.
