Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2003
In a word: Awesome! This is pound cake at it's finest. Do not change anything. This is the recipe you've been looking for. I served with a raspberry sauce. Of course, it's great by itself too. Thanks!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2002
I think this cake is awesome! My only regret is that I didn't taste it first without frosting. I usually don't like cake without frosting so I immediately frosted it with a cream cheese frosting. The cake beneath tastes so good (kind of has a crunchy top like crystalized sugar) that I am sure it would be good without the frosting. Anyway, I did NOT make any changes to ingredients or cooking time and would not make any in the future. I greased and floured the pan per the instructions and had NO trouble with sticking. Perhaps the additional baking time is creating the sticking problem? I planned on giving small plates of this away to my neighbors but now that I've tried it, it will be tempting to inhale it all myself!

This was ok but it didn't have enough orange flavor for me.

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2002
This cake ROCKS!!!!!!It is soo delicious that I literally want to eat the entire cake myself. It is possible to make it lower fat adding some applesauce for the oil and cutting back on some of the sugar. I want to make this for everyone I know. It is awesome. The glaze is terrific. You will not be disappointed.

Maple Walnut Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2001
This recipe, as is, came out terrible! I used a 9x13 pan--though recipe called for 8x8--and they still came out way too thick for bars. They seemed more like a dry, thick cake. The icing was the worst part. I think there has to be an error in the amounts. 1/2c butter with only 1/4 c sugar & 2 ounces of cream cheese tastes like sweetened butter. The texture was terrible. I made them for a family outing of 15 and only 1 was eaten.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2001
I can't believe how boring and bland these cookies were after seeing such a high rating!! I could only eat one cookie. I tried to give the rest away but was still left with a few that I will throw away. I bake (and LOVE) cookies several times a week. These were BORING. What it is about these that appeals to people? I'm dumbfounded.

Coconut Cake IV

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2001
This seemed a little bland to me so after tasting, I decided to top it with a lemon glaze (1/4c lemon juice, 1/2c sugar boiled). That jazzed it up to an ok cake.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2001
These were really yummy. I used butterscotch pudding and added butterscotch chips to half just for fun (in addition to the chocolate chips). I also used pecans over walnuts. I think the butterscotch were my favorite. I don't know that I could ever deem one chocolate chip cookie "The best." There are so many variations and all are good.

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2001
This is a very good cake; however, I think the Buttery Cinnamon Cake (on allrecipe) is better. They are very similar. I made them back to back to compare. I think the addition of cinnamon adds a lot and I didn't even think I liked cinnamon.

Buttery Cinnamon Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2001
I can't stop eating this cake! It is delicious. Since I have had some terrible luck with high rated cake recipes lately, I scaled this down to 4 servings. What a great feature allrecipes offers! I have mini bundt pans and it made 8 mini cakes.

Ho Ho Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2001
This tasted disgusting! The filling tasted like sweetened Crisco but was grainy. I took it to a potluck and was embarrassed hoping no one would know who made it!

Lemon Meltaways

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2000
If I made these again, I would double or triple the cookie size (make log 2 or 3" rather than 1"). Also, I would increase lemon juice and sugar in icing and decrease butter (icing tastes too much like butter as is). Last, they taste best at room temperature.

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2000
I remembered having these as a child and I found myself craving them 20 years later. I had to go back to the mom who made them for the recipe. We cheat and use a devil's food box mix and then add a spoonful of the cream cheese/choc chip mixture like the recipe calls for. I think they're just as good this way (& quicker!) Doesn't taste like a box mix because the cream cheese/chips add a homemade touch.

Italian Wedding Cookies III

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2000
These tasted way too salty! I would reduce the salt to a dash or 1/4t rather than 3/4t. I will try them again using much less salt.
