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.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
I was having a MAJOR sweet tooth and wanted something quick so I whipped up these brownies. soooo easy and delicious! (not at all cakelike like some reviewers said, they were probably over-mixing). I had to use brown sugar and they taste fine. I love the ease of this recipe. Because I am lazy, I melted the butter for the frosting to make mixing it easier. It is very good, but super sweet, I would consider removing or lessening the honey in the future. But wonderful recipe! Perfect for when you are craving something sweet!

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!

Roxie's Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2013
These turned out awesome. I was skeptical that they might be too heavy with so much whole wheat flour but they tasted great and my whole family loved them. I will probably cut out some of the honey next time, I thought they were plenty sweet.

Pumpkin Cookies with Penuche Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
This was delicious!! I made some of the adjustments I read in other reviews... I used butter since I don't cook with shortening... Anyway I used half the amount of butter and substituted the rest of the butter with pumpkin (ended up using one can of pumpkin). Then I also added 1/2 tsp. of cloves and nutmeg (each) and an extra 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon. I cooked it in a 9 x 13 pan and it came out wonderful! More like cake than bars, pretty much the size and consistency of a boxed cake. I also added a tsp. of vanilla to the frosting. It is a sweet frosting but its a wonderful compliment to the cake! sooo good!

Top Secret Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2013
I did like this! Since my apples were sweet (what I Had) I only used 3/4 c. sugar (brown sugar) and that was plenty sweet. It actually made a nice, thick coating on the apples. I did not have allspice or coriander, so I Just did heaping measures of the other spices but think it would have benefitted from the spices called for. Will make it again as I thought the flavor was nice and loved how it did not make a runny pie.

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
