Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
This is a really good recipe and I think you could chop and change things easily to add variety. I thought it was really nice the first day but the second day, the taste was even better and still very moist. It didn't even get iced before it was gone...lol.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I absolutely love this recipe. I've used it several times and it always comes out fabulous. I normally don't write a review if I've made changes but the changes I made are very minor. I don't normally keep chocolate (bars) on hand so I used cocoa powder and I don't think it effects the taste or texture, if it is a bit dry, then I add an extra small egg to the batter. I also find grating my zucchini on the smallest grating side works best. I've made it with a bigger grate, like what you'd get from your food processor but the smaller size seems to make the bread really moist with a better texture than the bigger size. I also use whole wheat flour instead of white and I don't think it changes much. I've done some variations as well such as putting strawberries or raspberries in the mixture. I usually make mine into extra large muffins and then ice them with cake coating and add a variety of sprinkles or cake decorations. This recipe will always be in my recipe box :).

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
This recipe was so easy to make. I made it on the spur of the moment one weekend. As I live in the UK, I had to make an adjustment. I used crushed, plain digestives for the crust. They worked really well and are really very similar to graham crackers. Also, I had some Nutella on hand and added that to my chocolate mixture. A helpful hint...icing sugar is the same as confectioners sugar here in the UK.

Restaurant Style Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
This recipe is really rich (in my opinion). I used milk instead of cream and I added extra milk to see if I could thin the sauce out some and to reduce the richness. I would say this is a good base recipe but might need to be played around with.

Stuffed Strawberries

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
I had to make the stuffing part of it twice. The first time I made the mistake of buying a softened version of cream cheese and it never got thick enough to "stuff" the strawberries. The second time I bought regular cream cheese and it worked much better. The runnier version didn't go to waste, we used it as a fruit dip. Also, I used vanilla extract like was suggested by another reviewer.
