Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
My children and their friends loved these, and they are not overly sweet. They taste best when served cold. 16 minutes was enough cooking time. I mixed 8oz. reduced-fat cream cheese, 2 cups confectioners sugar, 1 t. lemon extract and a splash of half-and-half for frosting (with a lot leftover).

Jewish Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2004
A great cake! We all had seconds. Mine was completely cooked in 35 minutes, so check it way before an hour.

Fabulous Fudge Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2004
This recipe makes a huge cake that was fantastic! It was moist and had the perfect texture. We loved the icing. (I reduced the sugar in the cake to 2 cups and used 4 squares of chocolate instead of 3.) It is THE BEST.

Hamantashen

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2005
Delicious!! The dough was a great pale yellow color and so tasty. I used raspberry jam, prune filling and blackberry jam. The pastries are still moist 3 days later. Everyone loved them. Next time, I would reduce the sugar a bit, though.

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2005
Using lowfat cheddar gets rid of the greasiness from the cheese. I also use only half of the powder and all of the minced onions from the soup mix.

Orange Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
Excellent! My family asked to have this every week. I made a few changes to suit our taste: used 4x the amount of juice (1 cup), 1/2 the sugar and 1/2 the butter and 2 pinches of salt. Cooked the carrots til barely soft (about 5 minutes) then removed from the pan. Simmered the juice til reduced (about 6 minutes) then added the sugar and butter, then put the carrots back in. This way the carrots don't get too soft. If only cooking broccoli this way would get them to eat it . . .

Four Egg Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2005
This recipe was very disappointing. The texture of this cake was coarse, like cornbread. The taste was okay but I was making cupcakes for a child's birthday and my kid testers didn't like them. (I ran out of time and had to use a boxed mix.)

Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2005
Delicious! I used a premade pie crust. Like another reviewer, we liked the texture better refrigerated, not frozen.

Chocolate Apple Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
This was good but not great. For us, the apples and chocolate together just didn't do it. Very buttery and moist, though.

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2005
I made this for a quick dinner and we all liked it. Left out the bacon and increased the cheese.

Sweet Potato Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
Really good. My husband doesn't eat sweet potatoes and he liked it. My changes were to use 4 1/2 cups of potatoes, omit the white sugar entirely (sweet potatoes are already sweet) and use 1 1/2 T. of butter in the potato mixture instead of 3. I kept the topping as in the recipe. It's a flexible recipe. You could eat this for dessert.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
Excellent!! I like to include whole wheat flour in baked goods to increase the fiber, so I used 1/2 cup white flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat; omitted the nuts; cut the sugar to 1/2 cup BUT added 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips; left off the topping (wasn't in the mood for topping). Kids and husband loved them.

Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2006
Very good, with minor changes. I added vanilla extract, baked at 350, but had to cover with foil after 40 minutes to keep from getting too brown. I might reduce the sugar a bit next time.

Just Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
This soup is delicious. I followed the recipe exactly except I pureed the carrots and onions in the blender with some of the broth mixture after they were cooked to make the soup perfectly smooth. The only thing I would change next time is to use sharp cheddar.

Lemon Icing

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
This icing was excellent with a few changes. I thought the original recipe was too buttery so I added 2 more cups of confectioners sugar, and 2 more tablespoons of lemon juice. After a thorough mixing it was delicious and perfect for my lemon cupcakes.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
I think I've finally nailed this recipe after making it for the 4th time: DOUBLE the amount of bread (get 2 large French loaves & measure out 24 cups); use 3 eggs; skip the separate spices and just use 3 T. of poultry seasoning; DON'T USE MORE THAN 2 CUPS of broth (start w/ 1 1/2 cups); keep amounts of butter, onion, celery, parsley & black pepper the same; omit the salt entirely; DON'T COOK ON HIGH FIRST or the bottom will get hard and crusty (we actually ate this part because it tasted good but it's not really what you want) and the middle will be mushy. This will not take 8 hours to cook; give it about 2. Leftovers are very tasty.

Buttermilk Chocolate Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
Very good, not too sweet. Didn't add the nuts or make the spread (no time). Kids liked it with powdered sugar. Also good with ice cream.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
Really delicious and very buttery, almost like shortbread. The only thing I would do differently next time is smush them down a bit since they don't spread much.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Oops. I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup and it was plenty.
