David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
This cake tasted good and was very soft and fluffy, but it was waaaay too soft. It wouldn't hold together, and it didn't rise at all. It sunk. I made one round cake and a few cupcakes. The tops came off of the cupcakes when I frosted them. The cake was so soft, it just sunk. Also, the edges of the cupcakes started to burn while the middles were still batter. I didn't want the same to happen to the large cake, so I turned the temp down to 325. The large cake took about 50 minutes to finish (total). I kept hoping the middle would rise a bit,but it was just one, large sink hole.

JIF® Buckeyes

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
These were pretty much the greatest desserts I've ever made. I only used 2 cups of powdered sugar because I didn't want them to be too sweet, and I wanted to taste the peanut butter. They were soft, but I was able to roll them into balls. I froze them first, and then I dipped them in melted chocolate. I used a corn cob holder (the kind with three prongs) to hold onto the balls for dipping. It worked great! Also, I ended up using 1 package of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 a package of dark chocolate chips instead of just 1 package of semi-sweet. They came out so, so good.

Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
I've made this coffee cake three times now, and it always comes out perfect. The only change I suggest is increasing the topping because it's so good!

Cranberry Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I love this scone recipe and have used it more than once. I skip the glaze all together and add some orange zest and a touch of orange juice to the dough to get orange flavor that way. Yum.

French Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
This recipe was simple and easy to follow. I kneaded it using the dough hook on my Kitchenaid on medium speed, and it did the job perfectly. I live in a dry climate and didn't need the full 6 cups of flour. I used just under 5 cups. The bread came out just as I'd hoped and was as good as a bakery's.

Creamy Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
This recipe makes me want to go back and change every recipe I've ever given 5 stars to and make them all 4 stars. I've never tasted anything so incredible. The texture of this frozen yogurt is nothing short of remarkable. It's unbelievably creamy. I could keep gushing. I used fat-free Fage Greek yogurt, but the mouth feel of this frozen yogurt feels like I used nothing but heavy cream. It's just so creamy. Yum. I mixed the yogurt with the sugar and vanilla as directed and then just dumped it straight into the ice cream maker. I added some dark chocolate chips. It's 10:30pm, and I just came back to the freezer to eat some more. This stuff is better than ice cream. So, so good. I want to tell my husband about how awesome this is, but then I know he'll eat some, and I don't want to share.

Vanille Kipferl II

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
We loved these! I found this recipe because someone gave me a container of vanilla sugar. I wasn't sure what to use it for. We tried to wait 3 days before eating them, but we failed. They were all gone well before then :) I plan on making them again when I do my holiday baking!

Berries 'n' Cream Torte

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
This recipe looks beautiful, and it's fun to make. The tarts came out surprisingly well, although they were difficult to spread out. My problem with the recipe was how painfully sweet the entire thing was. The tart circles were extremely sweet, and the whipped cream was achingly sweet. There's way, way too much sugar in this recipe! I think, if I make this again, I'll cut the granulated sugar in the whipped cream from 1/2 cup to 1/4 cup.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
These are out of this world. My husband keeps asking me to make more and more. The only complaint I have is that there's too much butter. You can see small globs of it on top where it rises to the surface because there's so much! I added extra oats the second time I made it (3.5 cups instead of 3 cups), and that seemed to help a lot. So, I recommend either decreasing the butter or increasing the oats. Additionally, if you use a 9x9 pan, your bars will be pretty thin. At least, they'll be much thinner than most of the nice-looking bars in the photos. It doesn't impact the taste at all, but it impacts the look of them. If you're giving them as gifts, I'd recommend using a smaller pan to make the bars thicker.

Coconut-Raisin Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup based on other people's recommendations that the recipe is too sweet. The pudding was still very sweet. I think I'd reduce it to 1/2 cup next time. Also, there ended up being waaayyyy to many raisins for my preference. I think next time, I'll reduce those to 1/4 cup, too.

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
I followed other readers' advice and added 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of applesauce. The cake was *so moist* to the point that it almost felt uncooked, even though it was cooked thoroughly. I'd make this again, but next time I'll skip the applesauce. I'll only add the 2 eggs.

Ratatouille Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
I enjoyed the vegetable mixture on this dish, but I'm not sure I liked it very much with cheese ravioli. For leftovers, I just ate the veggies and ended up throwing away the ravioli and the cheese topping.

Crumpets

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
These taste amazing. I had to add more milk (about double) to get a thin enough consistency for my liking. That was the only change I made. However, I was frustrated with the fact that the recipe states the crumpets are ready in 25 minutes, when it takes at least 45 minutes for the batter to rise. Plan on over an hour from start to finish... not 25 minutes, as stated. Some reviewers didn't know what to do with the extra 3 tablespoons of butter. That's what I cooked the crumpets in. Yup, they fried in butter, and they were fantastic.

Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
These are phenomenal. Easy and delicious! I added a little extra garlic powder to make them extra garlicy, and they were to die for.

Gloomy Day Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
I loved this smoothie! I added ice to thicken it because I used fresh mango, and it tastes tropical and delicious. The banana flavor is a little too strong for my taste, so I think I might reduce the banana to 1/2 next time and either increase the mango or decrease the juice to compensate.

BC Cherry Jam

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
This is an easy & delicious cherry jam recipe. At first, I was turned off by the "sweet" description, but I couldn't seem to find a better recipe online. I finally made this one, and I'm glad I did. I cut the sugar to 2 cups instead of 3 cups. It made the jam tart and perfect. I used 1.5 packages of pectin instead of 2 because I don't like my jam to be really firm like store-bought jellies. I think 1.5 was still too much, and next time I'll just do 1 packet. Because I cut out 1 cup of sugar, I only got 1 pint of jam. I kind of want to make more now. The jam was easy, and I loved the simple ingredients. Thanks for the great recipe!

Alicia's Aloo Gobi

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
I would give this recipe five stars except that the cooking time is very, very, very wrong. At 5pm, I reduced heat to low (step 3) and covered it. At 6pm, I went to check to see if the potatoes were done. They were completely raw. I turned up the heat to a 3 (medium-low) and covered it again. At 7:30pm, my husband and I ate it but without our son. We had to put him to bed after an instant Mac 'N Cheese dinner. Even after it cooked for two and a half hours (most of which was done on a higher temp than the recipe called for), my husband said it would have been better if it was cooked longer. The flavors were great, but it's upsetting to have to wait hours to eat dinner when you're not expecting it. I'll make this again because it was delicious, but I'll cook it on medium-low for 2-3 hours next time (instead of low for the first hour). I should add that I followed the recipe exactly except that I only put in a dash of salt, and I skipped the cayenne pepper because I just didn't see it in the recipe list. I did use the masala. The flavors were great.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
These were phenomenal. I added a little garlic powder into the biscuits themselves because I'm a garlic fiend. They ended up buttery and garlicy and perfect. My husband raved about them throughout dinner. The best part is, they weren't just the most delicious biscuits in the world, they were easy, too!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
I give these 5 stars for the simplicity of them. They work well! They're a little on the sweet side, but I think that's an acceptable trade-off for the ease of making them. I don't think I'd waste my time making "regular" peanut butter cookies again! I ended up making the last few batches of cookies larger because the process was going slow. I ended up with 42 cookies. I'm not sure why it says you should get 12... no way! Not if you're doing teaspoonfuls. I ended up adding just a touch of vanilla and baking powder. I didn't want to take away from the ease of the recipe, but I had them on hand and thought they might add to the flavor and texture. They were GREAT, but I might try the recipe without those additions to see if they're as good without.

Grilled Mediterranean Vegetable Sandwich

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
This sandwich is exceptional. My husband especially enjoyed it and said it was one of the best sandwiches he'd ever had. We had leftovers. Some chilled well, but the ones that were more oily didn't.
