Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
I made this coffee cake this weekend, and it was amazing! Tasty and spectacular looking! The only changes I made were to add 1/2 teaspoon orange oil, the zest from one orange, and orange flavored yogurt instead of sour cream to the batter. That was just because I really like the combo of orange and cranberry. I also added walnuts instead of pecans and used a well-greased 9" cake pan (non-springform). No issues with burning or anything like that, but the sugar did drip, and I forgot to put a cookie sheet under the pan. Don't forget the cookie sheet!

Shrimp and Feta Cheese Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
Wonderful mix of flavors! I did make a few changes, though. I used fresh oregano and basil, doubled the amount of tomato, and added MUCH more white wine than the original recipe called for (I used at least 1/2 cup of the wine as the base for the sauce, as others said it was dry). I also added a little bit of salt to the sauce. Instead of just shrimp, I used a seafood mix of shrimp, scallops, and squid and tossed it all with spinach linguini. Definitely a keeper!

Chocolate Cherry Drops

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2006
Fabulous cookies! I made these for a "girls night" and they were a big hit with everyone. The only change I made was to add a cup of chocolate chips to the dough. This recipe could also easily be doubled for a larger gathering. Loved it! Thanks!

Mmmmmm ... So good! I added slices of fresh mozzarella and broccoli florets to mine, too. Fabulous!

Roasted Potatoes with Greens

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
YUM! YUM! YUM! I looooved these potatoes! I did microwave my quartered taters first (under a wet paper towel) for a few minutes, just to make sure that they cooked all the way through in the oven without getting dry. One issue I always have with roasted potatoes is the dryness, but these were perfect. These would also be great made with turnip greens instead of spinach. Thanks!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: May 17, 2005
This recipe = FABULOUS!!! I just made it for my sister's birthday. It was dark, rich, and oh so moist! The batter was thin, as noted, but I had absolutely no issues with it rising improperly or falling afterwards. The only change I made was adding 1/2 tsp. of pure almond extract, along with the vanilla extract. I also iced with cream cheese frosting, but seriously, any flavor frosting would taste great on this cake.

Black Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2005
WOW! This is truly the dark chocolate cake recipe I have been looking for! It is so rich, I didn't even use a frosting, though I bet it would be fantastic with a dark chocolate ganache and some fresh whipped cream. The only changes I made were to use butter instead of shortening, and to melt it in hot coffee instead of plain hot water. The coffee is a decadent little touch that I add to all of my chocolate cakes.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake V

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2003
This recipe is awesome! I have never ever made a PUD cake before, and it turned out perfectly. Don't be afraid of making it double-stacked, either. It really isn't too difficult, and it looks absolutely stunning! A few tips: Make sure that the pans are well buttered, to only use a butter recipe yellow cake mix, and to only use 9 inch round cake pans (otherwise the pineapple slices don't fit right). I also added a bit of cream to get rid of the cake mix taste. Since I was making this for a Christmas party, I omitted the coconut (too summery), and instead added chopped pecans in the spaces between the pineapple slices. Lastly, If you don't have enough juice leftover, just top off what you have with plain, old, unsweetened pineapple juice. Oh yeah. One last thing ... I also added rum flavored extract to the cake mix.

Chocolate Cherry Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2003
This was indeed a rich, chocolately cake, but it was lacking a little in flavor. I think the problem stemmed from the canned cherry filling. I think next time I will make my own cherry filling. I don't mind cake mixes at all, but I am not a fan of canned pie fillings.
