To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
These are wonderful! The only change I made is adding more blueberries. I did feel like the amount of topping was way too much for 8 muffins. I generously covered my muffins and still had a ton left over. It was too thick for my liking after it was baked. The muffins themselves were huge, moist, and delicious!

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
These are so delicious! I coarsely chopped my cranberries and tossed them with a little flour(to keep them from sinking) before adding them. I also used mostly brown sugar, and butter instead of margerine. I made this into 12 muffins...they baked for about 20-25 minutes and looked beautiful topped with glaze!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
Finally! A fantastic banana bread recipe! I have made about a dozen banana bread recipes in the last year in search of a good one...this one was definitely the base for the perfect one...the sour cream does the trick. The only reason I'm not giving this five stars is because I changed a few things, but this makes a great start. I used butter, mostly brown sugar, added cinnamon, and topped with coconut, brown sugar and cinnamon. Seriously, my kitchen smelled so good while these were baking that I wanted to lick the oven door.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
This cake was so delicious! I made it as directed, and it came out perfect! As other reviewers have said, it is even better the next day. I covered it with chocolate ganache with a hint of coffee and it was amazing! It was so good that after making it for Thanksgiving for my family, I made a second one the next day to bring to my in-laws so they could try it too!

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
This sauce is pretty delicious, although it is VERY sweet! I suspected it was going to be sweet, so I used 1/2c. brown sugar and 1/4c. white sugar, and also reduced the orange juice by 1/4c. Still pretty sweet. I'm not sure if I just had particularly sweet cranberries or what, but if you're looking for a tart and tangy sauce, this isn't the one for you! Aside from the sweetness, the taste is really very good and it set up nicely. I put half the batch in the foodprocessor for a couple of pulses and mashed the rest with the back of a spoon for a nice consistency. Also added 1/4tsp. of cinnamon and 1tb. of Galliano. It was really good...I think I might add a little lemon or orange zest just to cut the sweetness a little. It does seem like it would be amazing on toast or muffins though...like a yummy cranberry jam!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Yum!! This was delicious and fun! The icing was easy to apply and dried hard (not too hard) and shiny! My sugar cookies looked like they came from a professional bakery! I did have to add about a teaspoon of extra corn syrup/milk for piping and about 2 extra teaspoons for flooding, but other than that, this recipe was perfect! So happy to have found a substitute for royal icing, as raw egg whites creep me out. Thanks!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
It's true, these are the best rolled sugar cookies! I have never found a sugar cookie recipe that I liked...they always come out bland or dry or are impossible to roll out, etc., but these were perfect! I made a couple of changes...added an extra 1/2 cup of sugar and added a teaspoon of almond extract, but other than that I followed the recipe, and it was great! These cookies were flavorful, sweet, and chewy-even after sitting out for hours. This will definately be my go-to sugar cookie recipe!
