Octoberfest German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
this is an excellent recipe, i grew up with my grandmother making german potato salad, and it wasn't like the think type you find in the stores. This recipe is as close to it as I've come. I didn't have any parsley on hand, so i used 2tsp of dried dill...wonderful!

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
i love this recipe! i found it to be a bit thick, next time i won't add the cornstarch mix all at once, but instead start with just half into the strawberry syrup, and see how it goes from there, flavour was wonderful, to counter the sweetness a little, i added a splash of balsamic vinegar... definitely a keeper!!

Busy Day Barbeque Brisket

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
i took this to a family picnic, and it was a great success. Since i have never worked with brisket i wasn't sure what to expect, but it's definitely being added to my list of standby's. I cooked it the night before, and left it in the fridge until and hour before eating it, with it being cold, it was very easy to slice into thin pieces which i put back into the warmed sauce, and we served it on buns.... lovely!

not bad, it was juicy and moist but not the flavour punch i was hoping for.

Lemon Chiffon Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
i made this for the weekly sunday night dinner at my parents house, i'm always looking for something new and because it was so hot i thought i needed something light and refreshing.(i also didn't want to turn on my oven) This really hit the mark, my dad's favourite pie is lemon, but he said this was even better than the typical one with the meringue, and i agree. I will definitely be whipping this up again, it really together well, and had a nice creamy texture, i might add a 1/2 tsp of lemon extract to rev the lemon up a little, and am wondering if next time to make it in a 10inch springform since it slices so wonderfully, and makes quite a large quantity of filling

Peach Cake Dessert

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
very happy the way this turned out, make sure you bake this for the entire time suggested, i took mine out a couple minutes early, and i think it would of benefited me to leave it in a little longer. wonderful with a dab whipped cream, it was not to sweet. I will be enjoying this again soon

Pineapple Coconut Squares

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I've been looking for a recipe like this for some while now, and i'm glad i've found it, the topping came out wonderfully, because others had mentioned about it being hard to remove from the pan i lined the bottom with parchment and had no troubles. I wasn't a fan of the crust on the bottom, i too, was expecting something a little different, it tasted a little dry, i think next time i'm going to use a shortbread cookie dough recipe for the crust, which i have used in other recipe and it really holds up well when cutting.

Chocolate Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
I think this will become a regular standby dessert. It held up very well and sliced lovely. I recommend using the frosting in the recipe for the top, it was just the right sweetness, and quick to make. Have had lots of requests.

Chocolate Chiffon Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
I really enjoyed the the chocolate flavour of this pie, it wasn't heavy but the flavour wasn't diluted as you might expect. Do keep it in the fridge, it will not hold up for long periods of at room temperature.

Dessertlover's Classic Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
This sauce turned out wonderfully. It seemed like a large quantity so I halved the recipe prior to making it, and I still had plenty. A nice smooth texture.

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
This was wonderful! Very simple to put together, it had a nice consistency. I think next time i will bake it at a cooler temperature (325) to prevent any cracking on the surface. I didn't have any ginger snap cookies so I used maple cookies, and the reviews were great. This is going to be added to my repertoire. Serve with caramel sauce to dress it up!

Cranberry Chiffon Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I received great reviews for this pie! I was happy wit it, but might increase the whipping cream slightly because i thought the texture was a little stiff. Next time i will also make it using a slightly larger pie plate, because I had plenty of filling left over.

Strawberry-Almond Chocolate Torte

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
This came out quite lovely. I used nutriwhip instead of the frozen dessert topping, which I whipped up in advance and added some confectioner's sugar to to sweeten it up a bit. I also frosted the sides of the cake. I had may great reviews, and it really ended the meal nicely as it was not overly sweet. I will be using this recipe again, perhaps trying different flavours of cake to use as a base.

they tasted as they should, and held up okay after cutting, but overall they weren't mind blowing.

Grandma's Gingersnaps

Lovely, they were quick to prepare, and baked off wonderfully. They remained slightly chewy, which is what i like in a cookie

Viennese Crescent Holiday Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I made these with ground almonds instead of the hazelnuts, and they turned out quite nice, almost like short bread. It is important that you dust them with powered sugar before they cool completely, as it won't stick otherwise.

Big Batch Kris Kringle Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I had many rave reviews about these cookies after I made them. The dough is very nice, but the white chocolate is just not my favourite, next time I will cut back on the amount of chocolate.

Raspberry and Apricot Rugelach

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
A wonderful cookie, but more appreciated amongst the adults. I used a pizza cutter to cut into wedges, because I have misplaced my pastry wheel, works great! I also used parchment instead of the foil, just because that is what I am accustomed to using. Others have commented, and I agree with the suggestion, that these cookies be made a day or two before being served.
