Easy Lemon Cake Cookies with Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
These are super easy. If you don't like strong sweetness, eliminate the icing. Many cake box cookies (and cakes, for that matter) suffer from a "fake" or "tin" flavor due to the preservatives. The best is to make it from scratch, but if you choose to use the box, try adding a natural flavor to the mix. For example, add lemon juice and lemon zest to these cookies to lessen the fake flavor and cut the sweetness at the same time. For other cookie/cake flavors, consider adding real vanilla extract, almond extract, coconut milk, or whatever you like. what I love most about cooking is getting to try new things. Not all recipes appeal to my taste, but I can make changes so they work for me and my family.

Rum Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
WooHoo! Thank you for this cake! It was very easy ans VERY tasty. I did use regular rum in the batter (1/2 cup) and I did soak the glaze into the still-warm cake. It went over amazingly well. Two people asked me to share the recipe - even the birthday girl :)

Clark Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Yummy! My friends called it "chocolate peanut butter fudge" and it sure does have that consistency. I reduced the sugar, just because I don't need so much in my life :) Thank you! Update: My husband asked for a birthday treat along the lines of a Reese's cup. I used cupcake liners and scooped a little ball of the peanut butter mixture for the center and then coated them on top and the sides with the chocolate mixture. Yummy! Very rich and possibly too big, depending on your sweetness level - but fun for sharing.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
This was super easy using the ingredients on hand. Of course I deviated from the recipe as written, but I'm sure it would be great in a variety of ways. I happened to have a box of spice cake mix on hand. I also threw in some coconut with the sugar/nut mixture (which was almonds in my case). I also took another's suggestion about putting instant coffee in the water - nice addition. I made it in a bundt pan. My only recommendation would be to add extra butter or oil to the bottom of the bundt pan so the topping caramelizes. Because I didn't do that, some of my topping stayed in the pan when the cake came out. My visiting family raved - than you!
