Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
This was a great recipe I used on a carrot cake. I more than tripled the allspice in mine and the flavors meld together wonderfully. I will use this again, especially on a carrot cake.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
This recipe lives up to its full five star rating on here. This was my first time making a carrot cake from scratch. I followed the recipe with the exception of leaving out the pineapple and raisins because I didn't have any. I baked mine in two round silicone pans and created a layered cake. There is a local over the top place called Extraordinary Desserts in San Diego and I have the cookbook from there, I decided to create an "extraordinary cake" using tips from the cookbook. I make a simple vanilla syrup and while the cakes were still hot from the oven, I poured the syrup over them and allowed them to soak. I assembled the cakes in a cake pan putting an orange cream cheee frosting in the middle as a filling. I froze the cake to allow the filling to set firmly in place. I iced the outide of the cake with an extra allspice-y cream cheese frosting and made an almond/white chocolate crunch for the sides. This cake was phenomenal!

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
Um.....WOW! I didn't except Fiber One cereal the taste good, but I was shocked to find out it does. I couldn't wait to try this recipe with it. I scaled the recipe down and used milk chocolate chips in place of semi-sweet. I like to make haystacks, but I will never make them again unless I have Fiber One. Chocolate + Peanut Butter + Fiber One = LOVE! **Also, if you have issues with the gritty texture try adding more chocolate or less cereal next time. **

Orange C Boost Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
This recipe yields nearly 2 cups once blended. I like to make this as an alternative snack, or sometimes for breakfast or to take with me on the go. It does have a rich orange taste. If you prefer you can adjust by adding more almond milk or less concentrate. My husband and I love this quick and easy smoothie and the C boost it provides!

Lorene's Slow Cooker Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
We thought this recipe was fabulous! I haven't brought out my crock pot in seven years, but I did to make this recipe and it will become a staple in our house. I peeled 3 very large russet potatos and chopped them up, I also added some baby carrots to the recipe. I got tired of shuffling around my spices and couldn't find my dill so I added a garlic and onion seasoning I had. I cooked on low for 8 hours but it was perfectly done in 7 hours. The potatos and the carrots have great flavor and melt in your mouth!

Espresso Bark

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
This is a great recipe, only that it calls for too many coffee beans. I only used 1/4 cup in mine and there is plenty is every bite. Make sure you scale back on the beans, but be sure to experiment with different flavors of beans. I used hazelnut cream in mine and it gave the overall flavor and experience more depth.

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Totally amazing, seriously. Wow. Okay......I used a garlic infused olive oil in mine and I also added a garlic and onion seasoning that I have to the dough. I broke the dough into half because I wanted to make a round foccacia. This recipe easily makes two large rounds of foccacia. As I olied my baking sheet, I sprinkled it with corn meal before placing my dough onto the sheet. The first round I added more garlic and onion seasoning along with a romano, parm. cheese mixture and the garlic oil and salt. The second round I skipped the cheese but added everything else on top and preferred that taste much more. This will become a staple. You can easily change up the flavor like I did by removing the rosemary and adding different seasonings or using an infused oil. Very highly recommend this easy to make and bake recipe!

Chocolate Almond Bark

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Great basic recipe! I tweaked ours slightly, but it is the same concept. I used dark chocolate so my husband would eat it and left out the shortening. I added a sprinkle on cinnamon across the top as it is drying before I cut the bark.

Non-Alcoholic New Years Eve Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
I was searching for orange and ginger ale recipes this morning and came across this one. I decided to make it because it is relatively easy and quick. I used frozen orange concentrate and made the juice in my blender. I poured the juice into a glass and added the ginger ale to it. The cherries of course sink to the bottom on the glass but they are rather delicious to eat at the end. I scaled this recipe back to two servings and it would be great to make for a party.

Nutty Mocha Latte

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I used almond flavored almond milk so I omitted the almond extract. I used an expresso chocolate topping my sister sent me for Christmas in place of regular chocolate syrup. Overall this was pretty tasty. Next time I would like to add some fresh whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Very easy to make whether on the stove or microwave.

Orange Chocolate Breakfast Drink

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I was intrigued when I came across this recipe. I love chocolate and orange together and after reading the recipe I knew to expect a lighter chocolate and orange flavor. With that, I began to make the drink. I used half the ice since I don't like icy drinks. I made the rest of the recipe as written. I took a few sips. As other reviewers stated, it is rather pulpy and normally I don't mind the pulp but in this drink it just wasn't working. Also the chocolate taste is so faint it is barely there at all. The orange in it is also light so it ends up tasty like icy, frothy, milk. I found this recipe serves 2.

Baked Apple Slices

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
This rarely happens, but this recipe was strange. It is a new recipe and baked apples sounded great! I thought the cornstarch was different but decided to give it a try. I am unsure of the purpose of the cornstarch because it was like eating apples in paste.

Microwave Mississippi Mud Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
This recipe actually turned out great! I was checking out recipes that I can make with my daughter's kindergarten class. I made this by cutting the recipe in half. I sprayed a glass bowl (white Pier One luminous porcelain, a medium size serving dish size) with baking spray. I baked in my microwave for 5 minutes and it was perfectly fluffy and done! I put the new stackable shaped marshmallows on top with some milk chocolate chips and microwaved for 30 seconds or so until slightly melted. I topped with walnuts, chocolate syrup, and whipped cream. I skipped the frosting. Awesome and this recipe will work for the classroom.

Three Cheese Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
Turned out great! I used whole wheat penne pasta with a traditional marinara that I added some garlic and onion seasonings to. In addition to the chopped onion, I also chopped a fresh tomato to add in. I got a bag of Kraft Philadelphia Italian cheese mixture to add in with the parmesan. We made ours without the meat.

Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Great base for a pie. If you have any LorAnn's Gourmet flavoring oils you could easily make this pie into anything you desire. I was going to add some cinnamon like most previous reviewers suggested but then I had an idea to 1/3 cup liquid Chai concentrate. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of saigon cinnamon. Great to add fresh whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel on top! Very easy!

Puppy Chow I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
I never made or had anything like this before. My friend came over a few days ago with a bag of this puppy chow for me. She gave me the recipe but I decided to check it out on AllRecipe and this is the same exact recipe she used. It turned out fantastic! I used a box of Crispix instead of Chex. A full size box of Crispix is 12 ounces but that was more than enough cereal for this recipe.

Old Fashioned Hard Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2011
This was a super simple, easy recipe. My first time making hard candy and it worked! I made mine into cherry suckers using LorAnn's Gourmet Cherry flavoring oil. I poured candy into Wilton candy moulds.

Cookie Dough for Ice Cream (Eggless)

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
Fantastic recipe! I used milk in place of water, but this is a perfect recipe. Great for ice cream or just to keep in the fridge as a snack. :)

Eggless Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Overall this was a great recipe. I made a full batch and the only hitch was it was dry and I needed to add extra water and I also added some olive oil as well. It finally stopped crumbling and came together nicely after requiring additional liquids. I had some frozen basil cubes from Trader Joes than I mixed into the pasta while kneading. I will make this again.
