Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
The recipe was easy to follow and the product was fantastic. I did add a considerable amount of fresh herbs (i.e. basil, rosemary, etc.) to the ricotta mixture which helped to further develop the flavor. This will definitely be made again.

Mombasa Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
This dessert was a hit. We tried it hot, warm, and cold. All ways were successful, but the warm was our personal favorite. The flavors of the dessert were delicate and unique and paired quite well with an African ginger cake I made. As far as the spices go, I would encourage people to use their personal tastes as a guide. I think I might add a few more spices next time to give it a more traditional sort of American pumpkin pie flavor. The recipe is very forgiving in the sense that it can accommodate your preferred flavor profile.

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
This recipe is awesome. As one other reviewer did, I placed the batter into a bundt pan. Although it took quite a long time to cook (ca. 2 hours), it was totally worth it....fantastic.

Cinnamon Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly, and the bread turned out perfectly. It received rave reviews. For some reason I found the marbling effect a bit difficult to achieve. I will have to practice next time, as I will definitely be making this bread again.

Scottish Shortbread I

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
This recipe was excellent. I followed the recipe but took the advice of another member who suggested dropping the cookies on a cookie sheet and pressing them with a fork, rather than rolling them out and cutting them. These cookies melted in our mouths. They were a perfect shortbread.

Buttery Cinnamon Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
I added the extra heaping tablespoon of cinnamon and used milk instead of water. The cake had a delicious flavor. It is at its finest while warm. My only complaint is that I did find the texture a bit grainy both times I have made it. Other than the texture issue, this is a good recipe to have on hand. I will make it again and try to figure out the texture quandry.

I followed the recipe exactly, and the cake was delicious. I found the recipe easy to follow, and the results were fabulous. It was my first time making a coffee cake, and it was exactly what I wanted it to be. The cake will definitely be made again.

Caribbean Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
This was a great and easy recipe. Instead of muffins, I made a cake in a 13x9 pan. Silly me, I forgot the baking soda, and the cake still turned out and was delicious. Granted, it was a bit more dense than cake, more like bread or pound cake consistency, but it still received rave reviews. It was moist and flavorful. I made a crumble for the top out of butter, mixed spices, oats, shredded coconut, and brown sugar. It complimented the cake really well and added a nice, contrasting texture. I find it difficult to find good recipes with true carribean flavors, but this one is excellent.

Trinidad Stewed Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
Not only was this recipe unique, but it was delicious. I was not sure what to expect, but I followed the recipe exactly, and the outcome was fantastic. What a great use for cilantro. Excellent recipe--no need for any significant changes.

Kartoshnik with Cheese and Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
I followed the recipe, and it turned out well. For our tastes, however, it was a bit bland. Next time I would add some chives and extra spicing. Other than that, it was a solid recipe with a nice outcome.

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
This recipe for Tiramisu is ridiculously good. I had always been a bit nervous about making tiramisu, because I had heard it was difficult. The recipe for this was easy and accessible. I used the "hard" lady fingers and actually dipped them into coffee, versus brushing them as the recipe suggests. Other than that I just followed the recipe. It was so easy. Thank you for providing such a wonderful recipe.

Homemade Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
This recipe is easy, but I agree with other reviewers who think it is a bit bland. I will make this again, but I will be sure to use more flavorful cheeses and/or herbs and spices of some sort. Those who have said that the sauce thickens once in the oven were right, I could see where it could become too dry. I might cut back a bit on the oven time or slightly reduce the temperature. I think this is a good base recipe for homemade macaroni and cheese, but it definitely needs a few alterations.

Finnish Cookie Sticks

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
These cookies were a hit at our Christmas festivities. I found the double dipping did not work very well; I had a bit of trounble getting the nuts to stick. Next time I am going to follow some of the suggestions from other reviewers. I made some into sticks and some into rounds; either way they turned out. I will definitely make these again.

Christmas Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
This bread is delicious and easy. I will definitely make it again. I did make some amendments to the recipe. I did not use the strawberry extract; I replaced it with vanilla. Instead of using frozen strawberries, I used fresh, and I did not use the glaze. The bread still turned out perfectly and had a fantastic taste.

Thirty Minute Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
This recipe is exactly as advertised. It is a quick, easy recipe which is almost identical to the results attained with a box mix. The texture and color of this cake are fantastic. For my personal tastes, the cake was a wee bit bland--something fairly easy to remedy. Others, however, thought the taste was perfect. Regardless, I will make this cake again. Thank you.

Sour Cream Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
I used this frosting on an orange cake, and it was simply delicious. For my tastes, however, I found the sourcream a bit too tart, so I might have slightly decreased it. To others, however, it might be perfect. All in all, this is an easy and great recipe, which I will use again. Thank you.
