Cinnamon Teacake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
Easy and very good. I doubled the recipe following another suggestion on here. Altogether that took 15 extra minutes. I might skip the topping next time, as it is good enough without.

Sugar Free Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
Un-salvageable! I tried the recommendations of the other reviewers and still it failed. And upon review, here's why: brownie recipes generally do not include a liquid (milk water, etc.) when the milk vaporizes it will leave a void in the volume of the final brownies (which is why the brownies sunk after baking to a flat object; the volume there at the beginning was not there at the end due to the loss of the water. Baking soda will NOT help raise the brownies because baking soda leavens recipes when it is involved in a chemical reaction, typically you see it paired with lemon juice, yogurt, or buttermilk, which is not the case here. The other time you see milk or other liquid in a recipe like this is if there is also a pretty good starch (ie: corn starch or tapioca) involved, which may help a bit with the volume issues and stability of the final texture (for those looking to fix this recipe...) The volume was off in the original and that explains the excessive flour use, which contributes to the bitter flavor. But unless you have a lot of time on your hands and patience to fix the errors of this recipe, I wouldn't attempt this. I think should remove it entirely!!!!

Yum Yum Cranberry Parfait

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2003
WOW! What an excellent idea. It works well with non-canned cranberry leftovers, and tastes great as it's own dish rather than being merely topping. A fantastic and easy way to use cranberry relish as a dessert!!!!

Baked Garlic

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2003
Stick to the recipe, use butter. Olive oil can be a little overpowering, it tastes nicer with butter, and butter isn't as bad as it's made out to be.

Holiday Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2003
I thought this recipe was super easy. I would suggest crushing the candy first, then melting the chocolate. My chocolate cooled by the time I had finished crushing. Also, if you want it to be more colorful, get those rainbow candy canes and crush those instead. I also melted some chocolate, spooned it into a decorating bag, and drissled the chocolate all over the top.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2003
I had major difficulty removing the cake from the pan, after greasing and flouring because I decorate my cakes. I found this cake VERY hard to work with. I thought it had more of a bread taste than a cake flavor, it wasn't quite sweet enough either.
