Mary Oppenhiemer's Butter Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2015
A big thank you to S. Helms, for giving us this wonderful recipe. It was so delicious, we couldn't stop eating it. Oh, and a big thank you to her grandmother, and to all the folks who give out their grandmother's recipes.

Mama Gunn's Pound Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2015
Thank you Starfighter for graciously giving us this recipe; it was fantastic! I served it with sliced fresh peaches, gently sugared. I think next time I'll add a pinch of mace, because that's what my grandmother always did with her pound cakes. And perhaps your great grandmother Gunn,given where she is now,doesn't mind at all that you gave it to the world to share. Thanks again.

Pistachio Cake IV

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2015
I tried it as a experiment, cause I'm learning how to bake, but I liked the ones I made completely from scratch better, I can taste the buttery goodness more, or something.

Muesli

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2015
God bless the Swiss! I love Muesli, and I had been looking for a recipe for years. Tip: If you want to make it taste more like the Muesli that you buy, I found dried bananas, (not banana chips), chopped finely, transport me back to the Swiss Alps. I do not, however, agree with one reviewer who stated that it needed no sugar. I think the amount is perfect. Thank you, Jen.

Dried Apple Stack Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2015
Despite my hesitation, I made this recipe and all my fears were confirmed. Every time I try and use an 'easier softer way', by using a cake mix, I wind up being disappointed. The only time saved is in putting the dry ingredients together, and that takes less than 5 minutes. Worse, you wind up with a cake that does not have the flavor of the real thing, and often has a funny after taste. I hope I've finally learned my lesson.

Apple and Dried Cranberry Crisp

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2015
I really liked this recipe. The second time I made it, I used less nutmeg and substituting golden raisins for the cranberries. Not that there was anything wrong with the given recipe, I just tailored it more to suit my personal preferences. Thank you, Stoney Lake

Really, Truly Gorgeous Dried Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2015
I loved this recipe! I've made it several times, varied it slightly; (like Paula, I used dried cherries instead of the figs), and last time I sprinkled some port over the stewed fruit, then tossed it gently. It was superb. God bless you PixieX3.

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2015
I loved this recipe. The sour cream topping sets it apart from other pumpkin cheesecakes, and raises it to the manna from heaven category. And how fortunate the person who submitted this recipe is, to have a father who comes from a profession that isn't usually associated with helping the homeless. Thank you, father and daughter.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2015
Great recipe; I just tweaked it a bit. I used 2 and 1/2 TBS butter and doubled the sugar. It was wonderful. Thanks for the receipt!

Good bread. And thank you STEPMIT, for giving the equivalent for those of us that don't usually have self rising flour on hand. So thoughtful.

Honey White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2015
This bread was good. Thank you to the reviewer who explained why the vitamin C, and ginger was in it. I had never seen that before and was puzzled until I read Zakkie's review.

Strawberry Crepes

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2015
I only gave it one star because, more and more, I simply cannot stand the taste of the fake whipped cream. It leaves this chemical aftertaste in my mouth. I did like the crepes, so I think I will make it again, but with real whipped cream.

This bread was fantastic. I gilded the lily and ate it with Nutella smeared on it and it was divine. Thank you for submitting this one.
