Boiled Water

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
I used tap water on my first try - ugh. The recipe doesn't specify it, but be sure to use filtered water only. Second batch was much better! I'll definitely be adding this to my list of favorites!

Doberge Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
Of the more complex layer cakes I've tried, this was the most simple, both in terms of ingredients and prep. The most challenging elements were: a) not burning the custard (it takes a looong time to thicken, so be patient) and b) not making a huge mess with the ganache when pouring it over the frosted cake. Taste-wise, it's great (and intensely sweet!), though a bit chocolate-heavy. Next time, I will try vanilla buttercream frosting instead of chocolate. It might be a nice contrast with the ganache.

OREO Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
A fun, light treat that disappeared quickly around the office (and made a great conversation piece). The backs can be a bit top-heavy due to the candy corn, so be sure to have plenty of melted chocolate to attach the "tail" to the bottom of the cookie.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
I followed the directions but still found it dry and a bit rubbery. Would not make again.
