Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Nice, but not scones as I know them. They were very soft. I'm used to dryer crunchier scones. Still, we loved them. I substituted whole wheat flour for half of the flour in the recipe. They were great with jam.

Bavarian Apple Torte

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
I wonder if I made a mistake. It just wasn't the fantastic torte I thought it would be. First of all, the crust was far too thick and buttery. It was a little soggy before it was refrigerated and rock hard after being refrigerated. I took other readers advice and halfed the cream cheese filling. I wish that I hadn't, as it was too dry around the edges. I hope to find a better recipe for this torte. It sounds like a fantastic dessert.

Garlic Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
Great! Quick! Easy! I added a touch of honey, as I love the taste of garlic and honey.

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
I've made this recipe many times. The recipe is ALMOST perfect as written. Cut the salt to 1/2 tsp and you have the perfect pancake recipe. This pancake is very versatile. It's great with grated apple and cinnamon, blueberries, or chocolate chips stirred into the batter. This recipe serves two hungry adults.

Dutch Apple Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Very nice! I used 3/4 brown sugar instead of 1 cup of white sugar and I still found it to be very sweet. This might be because I also used a sweeter apple. I will definitely make this again, probably using 1/2 cup brown sugar and sweeter apples.

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I found this recipe to be really lacking in flavor. I was expecting something with a more authentic and full bodied taste. The final product wasn't bad, but I won't be making it again.

Banana-Dulce de Leche Pie (Banana-Caramel Pie)

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
My boyfriend and I have nicknamed this dessert "death pie," as it is so clearly unhealthy and decedent. That said, we loved it. We live in Chile where dulce de leche is called majar and there are whole supermarket shelves dedicated to selling it ready made. Since graham crackers are hard to come by here, I used an oatmeal cookie crust which I HIGHLY recommend. It gave a great texture to pie.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
I made a slightly healthier version of this recipe and they were still "to die for." I used one cup whole wheat flour and one half cup white flour. Instead of the topping suggested, I used some oats mixed with a little brown sugar. I also used frozen mixed berries (blackberries/raspberries/blueberries) and added an extra quarter of a cup. Yum!
