Can't Tell They're Low-fat Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
not a fan. the batter tasted ok but once they were baked I could totally taste the prunes. This may have been my fault as I didn't have baby food on hand so I pureed some apples with about 5 prunes... fresh food is always more flavorful than babyfood (ick). anyway, I will not be making these again. And would recommend to just use applesauce.

Homemade Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
This was very easy to make; it is currently setting up in my refrigerator, however, I decreased sugar to 1/3 c. and it was still way too sweet. I am using this in a trifle and fear it will add too much sweetness. I would make it again with even less sugar next time.

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
did not like the flavor or texture. were difficult to roll out--very sticky no matter how cold they were. I will go back to regular sugar cookies for sure.

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
turned out great! A little thicker than I expected in a large, rectangular pan, but cooked up well. I needed at least 1/2 C more flour than directed. I added some seasonings (parmeasan, garlic salt, italian seasoning) to the crust. Generously oiled the pan and prebaked the crust for about 10 min. at 375 (I always do this) then cooked the pizza with toppings for 12-15 minutes longer, the crust turned out great, browned on the bottom, cooked all the way through. Just a little thicker than I wanted. Also only had normal flour to use, turned out fine

Four Egg Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
I'm not sure how fair this review is since I used it as a base for the coconut cake III on this website, but it turned out really well regardless. Changes I made were using butter instead of shortening, and adding a bit more vanilla. Then per the recipe I was using I also added 1/4 c. cream of coconut, 1 pkg.vanilla pudding mix, coconut and walnuts. The cake was seriously delicious and moist, it made three good sized layers and was just right for what I needed it for. But as you can see I really modified the recipe so I am not sure how it would turn out as written.

Coconut Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
This cake was DELICIOUS. I used the 4 egg yellow cake recipe from this site and then added the pudding mix + 1/4 C. of cream of coconut. I put the coconut into the food processor so it was in smaller flakes and chopped the walnuts so they weren't in huge pieces. The cake had a wonderful flavor (the nuts were awesome) even though it wasn't very coconutty. I had plenty to make 3 decent sized layers. For the frosting, I doubled the recipe (and had some extra left over). I added about 4 Tbsp. of cream of coconut to the recipe and used around 1 1/2 C. less of sugar and still found it to be a bit too sweet, although it was so so so so good. I also food processed the coconut that went into the frosting so it wasn't so lumpy. I topped the cake with the toasted coconut and additional chopped walnuts which was perfect. Everyone loved this cake at Easter I am pretty sure I would make this again!
