Perfect Cheesecake Everytime

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
I've made many cheesecakes over the years - this was the easiest one ever, and tasted as good if not better than all the other more complicated cakes. I added salted caramel sauce and toasted pecans to the top of this, but you could embellish it any way - the cake itself is great! I will using this recipe from now on.

Almond/Apricot Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
I thought this was a delicious coffee cake. I added a little too much jelly and it kind of dripped down to the bottom of the bundt pan, so when I turned it out, the hot apricot jam dripped down the sides of the cake. I was initially disappointed, but once it cooled, I drizzled a white confectioners sugar drizzle over it and then sprinkled toasted almonds on top of that - it looked beautiful and tasted terrific. I'll definitely be making this again - thanks for the post.

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
I followed the recipe exactly - enjoyed it, however, I do not think it needs an entire stick of melted butter. I will definitely make this again, but will reduce the butter by at least a couple tablespoons; I don't think the moistness will be affected at all. The flavor is nice and not over-run with spices.

Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
I like this recipe the way it is published, but prefer it replacing half of the liquid with OJ, increasing the sugar a bit and skipping the 3rd step as others did (we like the texture). I will definitely use it again.

Lemon Zucchini Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2013
When one of my favorite cooks on this site loved this recipe with a full cup of oil, I used the full cup. And, the only thing I did do differently was to throw a half lemon in my food processor (since it was out for the zucchini) rather than juicing and zesting a lemon for the lemon ingredients - I ultimately had 1/4 C of lemon contents, the same as the recipe requires. The cake is light and flavorful, but it does not need a full cup of oil! My oil was new (I used canola) and although it doesn't have an oily taste, it is too wet after 60 mins of baking in a 10 cup bundt pan. It is fully baked, but I feel that 2/3 or 3/4 C oil would be just fine in the future. I will make this again with that one change. The lemon flavor is great using this process - it's from another recipe on this site.

Tzatziki Sauce (Yogurt and Cucumber Dip)

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2013
Great Recipe! I left out the mint (personal preference) and added dill, used Greek yogurt to speed up the process (didn't have to drain anything), and squeezed my shredded cucumber in between towels to get rid of excess water - hadn't allowed myself enough time to do the draining part. However, the tzaziki was great and everyone at the dinner party loved it! Will definitely continue to use this recipe.

Condensed Milk Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
I would definitely use this recipe again, but I feel it's more suited to bar cookies/brownies rather than a cake. I put it on a home made butter cake and it was good, but not quite as soft as I would have liked. I do believe it would be excellent on brownies!

Chocolate Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
Excellent cake. I think you could actually use one cup of cocoa if you really want a dark chocolate. I have made this many times, and now throw in a cup of mini-chocolate chips. As is, it's a 5-star recipe, and w/additions it's equally great. Thanks for the posting.

Obviously a tried and true recipe. Excellent results. Use it at the B&B regularly in the fall/winter.

Buffalo Chicken Burgers with Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
Yum - these burgers were great! I cooked them on the stove, and they turned out fine. Will definitely make these gain, and will try them on the grill this summer.

Brownie Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
Great frosting - you have to work fast, it sets up quickly. Perfect for brownies, though!

Cranberry Streusel Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
I loved this pie! I did take one suggestion of a reviewer and chop up a piece of pie crust to mix in with the streusel simply for more bulk. The body of the pie was delicious, and I plan to make this a regular winter pie in our house! For those preferring a sweeter pie, you may want to add more sugar.

Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
I love shortbread and thought this recipe was great. I appreciate the dough's flexibility in preparation: you can press it into a 13x9 pan, make cut outs, I rolled it into logs and sliced round cookies, you get the idea. The brown sugar gives it s bit of a different flavor, too. I will definitely be using this recipe again.

Gluehwein

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
I really liked this spiced wine - I think next time I will put a little less sugar in it (I think 1/2 cup would be fine). I'll definitely make it again - my friends and I enjoyed it today after our wreath making session - it's very festive!

Maple Pecan Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
These were very easy to make and tasty. I took them to a bake sale the day after I baked them - they definitely soften once they are cut and put in a cookie tin (they aren't firm like normal shortbread since they have the nut topping). Keep that in mind - they need to be eaten fairly quickly, but are quite tasty.

Broccoli and Ramen Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
I must admit, I didn't have some of the ingredients but wanted to try this anyway, so I subbed coleslaw and used sweet onion instead of green onions. I also added a little sesame oil. I guess I am not really evaluating the recipe as written, but the result sure was delicious! I will make this a lot in the future with the changes - thanks for a great starter recipe!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
I have been using a little different version for this dessert, and decided to try this recipe for a change. I found the amount of butter and cinnamon/sugar added on the top of this pastry was significantly more than needed. I'll continue to use my original recipe which uses 2 T melted butter brushed over the top rather than an entire stick of butter and approximately 2-3 T of cinnamon/sugar sprinkled over the butter. I also add 1/2 t of almond extract and 2 T of plain yogurt to the cream cheese mixture. This recipe does lend itself to many additions, though. I've mixed mini-chocolate chips into the cheese mixture and added chopped pecans on the top, and you can also make it more like a danish by piping white icing over top of the cinnamon crust. Any way you make it, it's a tasty morsel!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
Great recipe - we've been adding lots of fruit/chips/nuts into it and it's always good. It's the only recipe I use now.

Raspberry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
Just made this to take to work - it's not an overly sweet cake. I had to more than double it to make enough for a 13x9 pan (I set the servings at 25) and that filled the pan well and the cake is approx 2" tall. It still baked in 40 mins. I imagine you could substitute nearly any kind of fruit for the berries as long as it's not too heavy/wet. A nice, basic recipe.
