Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This was good, but the milk and corn syrup was off. I had to add several more teaspoons of milk and corn syrup to be able to use it.. but it's pretty easy to do.. I used this on sugar cookies that I was making for Chanukah so I needed to make it white and blue.. I used clear vanilla extract that I found at wal-mart so that the color wouldn't affect the white.. It looks nice and tastes good when it dries. Good recipe with some modifications, and it's a good base to add whatever extract you like!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This is delicious! I doubled the crisp part and put under and over the apples and I soaked the apples in the sugar, flour and cinnamon as suggested. Delicious! I added a little nutmeg to the apple mixture. I didn't use baking apples so I didn't add the water but the mixture came out really juicy. This was reallly good!

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
This is delicious! I used half of the recipe to do a two layer chocolate cake. I did use a little more milk. I made this with the Black Magic Cake. It was an awesome combination! The cake tastes better if you let it sit overnight! Amazing!!!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
This was AMAZING! I followed the recipe exactly as written, and the results were delicious! Just a note- I put wax paper on the bottom of the two 9 in. pans, but I didn't spray under the wax paper. This made part of the cake rip off. So if you use wax paper, make sure to spray underneath! I used this with Rich Chocolate Frosting (1/2 of that recipe). Amazing!

Blueberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
Very good! I doubled it and added almost 8 oz. cream cheese, which I creamed with the eggs, sugar, and butter. I also used brown sugar in the topping, which I used 4x the amount called for. I added 1 tsp. of vanilla extract to the doubled recipe. Delicious!

Red, White, and Blueberry Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
This was awesome! I did make a couple changes.. I didn't have time to get phyllo dough, so I used a graham cracker crust which was delicious, and I accidentally added 2 cups fresh blueberries into the mix itself.. I was very worried that it would come out bad and not sweet enough, but it was delicious!

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This is very good! I added the half cup of sour cream, another cream cheese, and a cup of pumpkin like other suggested. I also made my own graham cracker crust from a recipe on this site. It's not too heavy, and the pumpkin flavor isn't overpowering at all.. Delicious!

Strawberries and Cream Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
I made this for my Church (I will post pics).. It came out beautiful! I didn't taste it, but people loved it there, and it gives a simple but beautiful presentation. I was worried about some of the reviews of it being rubbery and someone said that it made small layers. I sifted my flour and baking powder together, and like suggested, I halved the cream cheese icing just to decorate a bit and it was still too much. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. It was wonderful! Thank you!!

Graham Cracker Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This recipe is very good! Unless you like the crust really thick, there will be some left over.. The second time I did this, I decided to only do a cup of crushed graham cracker and accidently added the same amount of everything else, but it was still very good! I made it with the double layer pumpkin cheesecake recipe on this site.. Delicious!

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This was very good! I make my dad and brothers a waffle and put ice cream and whipped cream on top.. It was good and healthy! (Well, healthier than the store bought ones). I used olive oil instead of canola oil, I used butter instead of applesauce, and I didn't have enough wheat germ or any flax seed meal so I used ground oatmeal for the rest and a little more sugar. Very good!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This recipe is delicious! I do all butter, about double the cinnamon. I also do it with cranberries, (I use the dried, sweetened ones) and depending on the ones you get, you might want to add a little more sugar. I soak the raisins or cranberries for 10 minutes in warm water before putting them in the mixture. As a fundraiser for my church we sell baked goods and I make these every week and people love them! If you like cranberries, they are amazing with them! I haven't tried blueberries or any other berry in them, but I'm sure that would be delicious too! Thank you for this recipe!!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
This is a delicious brownie recipe! I doubled it and baked it for thirty minutes in a 9x13 inch pan. I melted the topping, and used half the amount of sugar like suggested, and mixed it with a wooden spoon. It didn't come out too cakey or too hard. It's not horrible sweet, and the topping isn't too heavy. I found my new brownie recipe! Amazing and very easy to make! Thank you!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I go to a Messianic Jewish congregation and for Chanukah I made jewish stars out of this.. I used 3 cups of sugar, I rolled it to a 1/4 inch thickness. Because we sell these as a fundraiser they have to be the same size, so I get 4 chopsticks, and I put the thick end and thin end of 2 together at whatever distance I want to roll them to, and tape them to whatever I am rolling on. I also used powdered sugar to roll them with instead of flour. Everyone said they were delicious! They aren't disgustingly sweet, they are just right!

Vanilla Glaze

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
this was very good! I did add a lot more milk, probably 3 or 4 tbsp. extra, because I put them on top of scones. It is very easy to make and very good.

White Texas Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2013
This is awesome!! My goal this summer (and last summer actually) have been to find a good yellow or white cake recipe. I have tried many different yellow and white cakes that had high reviews on this site and so far none have been what I am looking for. They all end up shrinking, and while some of them had good flavor, they were also very dense. Then I decided to try this for a flag cake I wanted to make for the fourth of July. I used vanilla extract instead of almond, and I didn't use the icing recipe as I was making a flag design with whipped cream, strawberries, and blueberries. It was moist and had a very nice flavor. I am going to experiment with different icings and pan sizes, as I would like to make round cakes with this recipe. I will let you know how that goes! I'll put a picture of the flag cake I made with this. It was wonderful! Thank you so much!
