Black Bottom Cupcakes II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
Great cupcakes. I miniaturized them using the exact recipe and baked them for 18-20 mins (depending on your oven) and they came out GREAT! Still fill 1/3 full with batter and a heaping 1/4 teaspoon of cream cheese mixture. Yum!

Aunt Bev's Famous Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
A perfect pie!!!! First time I made as the recipe reads. The crust domed over the filling, so the second time I made on I baked the apples for 20 mins to soften them so they settle, then added them to the crust and baked until the crust was golden brown. It tasted wonderful, and the crust lay on top of the filling this time, but the apples were a little overdone. Next time I will bake the apples a shorter time.

Hot German Potato Salad III

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I agree with an earlier reviewer -- the potatoes fell apart, maybe will use red potatoes next time. The flavor was fantastic! I tried to scale down the recipe and I found it to be a bit dry, but I just added more vinegar and water later on and thinned out the sauce and it was still amazing!!!! Very pleased. Thanks!

Crunchy Apple Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I altered this recipe a bit based on earlier reviews -- used 1/2c mayo, 1/2c sour cream, OJ, and lemon juice as dressing. Substituted dried cranberries for the raisins and used 2 red delicious and 2 granny smith apples. The granny smith apples with the cranberries and the dressing were a perfect marriage!!! Great base recipe, thank you.

Cranberry Pork Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I cooked this in my slow cooker all day. The flavors were very good together. I did not have orange peel, but did not notice that it was not there. Would make this again. Thanks!

Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
The first time was a flop. I tried the double-boiler method, but I think I was supposed to put the mixture into a real pan after adding the egg yolk, so it may have been my mistake. It didn't set. The second time I followed the recipe to a T and the pie came out PERFECT. My mother-in-law grew up with old-fashioned PA Dutch custard pie and she thought this was great. Thanks for a wonderful recipe that I will use again for sure!!!

Strawberry Torte

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
I made this for mother's day (for my in-law and my mom) and it was a huge hit. It was light enough to eat after a heavy meal, too. One thing I did different, the strawberries I bought were not in juice, so I chopped them in my mini-chopper, put them in a pot with a little bit of water and a sprinkle of sugar, and brought to a boil. I pureed the mix in a blender and stuck it in the fridge to cool. When i put the filling on top of the ladyfingers I also added a thin layer of this mixture, then more ladyfingers (they soaked up the juice and were exquisite). I sliced strawberries and filled the gap (my ladyfingers were too tall) on the top of the torte. Thanks for an awesome recipe! I will submit a photo. It really was a big hit, and I would make it again. It reminds me of strawberry shortcake!

Awesome!!!!! My fiance doesn't eat beets and he loved these. Perfect, just the way it's written. I poured the leftovers onto hard-boiled eggs for some delicious pickled eggs! Thanks :)

Death by Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
Wow. This was awesome, decadent, and easy!!! It was made for chocolate lovers. I used Ghirardelli bittersweet morsels and the chocolate flavor was intense and satisfying! I made the mousse filling and put it in glasses (scrapped the pie idea because I wanted individual "servings") and topped with fresh made whipped cream. WONDERFUL DISH! I had requests for the recipe. Will certainly keep this recipe handy.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
I'm not sure what I did wrong, but my cookies came out like muffin tops. My fiance said, "Remember what you did wrong, these are the best!!!" I followed the recipe, except I added a little more bananas than called for (I had an excess). They were AWESOME! And super-moist. Thanks for the recipe.

Macaroni Egg Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
We loved it, but we like our mac salad more eggy, so we used 3 hard cooked eggs. Really good though, thanks for the recipe!

Cucumbers in Sour Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
Great sauce recipe. I slice my cucumbers as paper thin as possible. Second time I made it, I added paper-thin sliced onion, and a tablespoon of Dill (to taste!) and a little extra vinegar. Also used Apple Cider vinegar instead of white. Thanks! :)

Blueberry Raspberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
This was a great pie, but the family felt the raspberries overpowered the blueberry flavor. If you are looking for a great blueberry pie, try a plain blueberry pie. I loved this recipe and the raspberries gave it some tartness so it wasn't just sweet blueberry filling!

Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
This is the first time I have ever had to throw out cookie batter. I added a little extra flour as recommended by previous reviewers, but as they also said, it didn't make them better. Not peanut buttery at all, and bland. Thought I'd give it a chance, but now I don't have cookies to take for my meeting tomorrow.
