Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
Tasty and definitely sweet. Too sweet for my low threshold. I made it as directed and others seemed to dig it. I prefer the Dark Chocolate Cake I recipe.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
I'm huge on flavor, not so much on sugary sweets, so cake isn't typically my first choice dessert. That being said, this particular cake was quite good. I made it into cupcakes for my daughter's preschool class and threw on a coat of cheap-o frosting, and everyone loved them. Even stingy old me. I would've preferred slightly more of a chocolate punch, but I think I'd be verging into brownie territory at that point. I definitely liked this more than the Extreme Chocolate Cake recipe, but, again, I prefer a lower sweetness level.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
I make this every year for St. Patrick's Day. I omit the raisins, and then eat it warm with Dubliner cheese. One year I somehow accidentally doubled the amount of butter in it (not sure how I managed that!), and it was one of the best mistakes of my life! If you don't mind getting all of your calories for the day from a single snack, I recommend making it that way. Very delicious made correctly as well.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
I'm not much of a pork eater, but I have to say that these were AMAZING! We used a can of Barq's root beer that we found in the back of the fridge, and K.C. Masterpiece BBQ sauce from Costco. I used a lot more BBQ sauce than was indicated in the recipe, but I tend to prefer very moist shredded meat. We served up mini sandwiches on Hawaiian King Bread rolls (again, Costco - love that place!), and simply devoured them!

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
I'd never made bran muffins before embarking on these, and, I have to say, I'm a convert! Much better than any I've purchased at bakeries or Jamba Juice (yes, I've bought baked goods at Jamba - shudder!). I followed the recipe exactly, with the addition of about 8 oz. of blueberries. The blueberries were a great addition to the moist, melt-in-your-mouth muffins that came out of the oven. We ate all of them in less than a day!

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
This recipe is FANTASTIC! I grew up eating "Hawaiian Chicken," a very similar recipe, minus the garlic and lime. I will never eat it without those two little touches of heaven again! The depth of flavor that the lime adds is unreal. I love how quick and simple this is to make, and I generally have all the ingredients on hand. Excellent low fat dinner recipe!

Chocolate Frozen Yogurt

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
I wasn't overly impressed. I followed the recipe exactly - it just tasted too sour for my liking. I suppose it could be because I make my own yogurt, but I can't imagine why that would actually change anything. Texture was great, color was great, taste was less than stellar.

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
Yum! Like many other reviewers, I had to add a lot of extra orange juice to get it to moisten up enough. I used one of my daughter's plastic Ikea cups to cut out the biscuit shapes because I didn't have a biscuit cutter (worked perfectly). Otherwise, I made it exactly as written and they turned out heavenly!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
I made these exactly as written. I used Guittard cocoa rouge. I'm not a huge cookie fan in general, but these were to die for! They're my new staple since they're ridiculously easy and a real crowd pleaser.

Yogurt Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly as written. Not too fond of the results. Too sour for my taste, I suppose.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
I'm a cookie novice and these turned out amazing! I also learned to take them off the cookie sheet while still hot, otherwise they'll stick to the pan!

Peanut Butter Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
Followed the recipe exactly. Bland and too hard. Lots of calories with little flavor to show for it.
