Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2014
I was looking for a chocolate chip cake recipe to replace one I lost to make for my teen son whose grandfather was dying--and this was even better than my original. I used King Arthur white flour for all of it in lieu of whole wheat, a 12 oz. package of Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate chips, and baked it in a tube pan for roughly 43 minutes. Right out of the oven I shook granulated white sugar on top for a sweet crunch. Delicious with absolutely no leavening taste whatsoever, as was one reviewer's experience. The chocolate was the perfect amount, and the crumb very moist. This will be a staple for my son and his friends. Thank you, Lil!

Karyn's Cream of Crab Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2012
Perfection. I followed the directions exactly-- except, like the others, I used about half the Old Bay. It really adds to the flavor without screaming Old Bay, but if you decide to omit, it will definitely need salt. I also used Knorrs Hollandaise, as one reviewer suggested. It was packaged .9 oz instead of 1.25, but I couldn't detect any issues with flavor or consistency. Absolutely loved this and SO easy! Thanks, Karyn!!!

Butternut Squash Risotto

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
I almost made this to the letter, but left out the parmesan for a picky child and added it separately to my own serving. I also used very good wine and home-made chicken stock. It was incredible. Picky child gave it 2 thumbs up (virtually unheard of) and we both had seconds. Big Yum.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly--No MODIFICATIONS prior to baking (basically cause I forgot to buy fresh lemons!) Crumb is nice, crispy on the o/s and chewy i/s. I had to bake all of 9 mins. at 375 just to get the inside to set. Since one reviewer complained they were too sweet, I shook off the excess powdered sugar. But it baked into the cookie, and created a smooth brown crust. A quick sprinkle of more powdered sugar gave it that festive look that looked so nice in the picture. And the flavor? Ok, if you like boxed lemon cake mix, which is exactly what it tasted like. But I do think that the addition of fresh lemon juice and zest would give these a much-needed boost. Anyway, the Cub Scouts are taking these to a nursing home sing-along tonight, and my 9 year-old son thinks they're great--and don't kids have the last word when it comes to cookies?!

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe. My picky 8 year-old gave it 2 thumbs and 2 big toes up! The only change I made was to reduce the cooking time to 35 minutes. It made a very moist dense crumb. This recipe is a keeper!

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
With family in Florida, I have had a zillion key lime pies. This super easy recipe is about as delicious as they come! Made 50% more for a store-bought ten inch pie plate and still had room for more or a creamy topping. Great!

Tropical Salad with Pineapple Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
I love the idea of this salad, as well as the ingredients on their own. But I honestly don't understand the 5-star reviews. I used all fresh and, when possible, locally grown and/or organic ingredients--and thought it was insipid-tasting and not worth the trouble. I gave it 2 stars cause it was edible.
