Mexican Lasagna II

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
So, so easy and delicious. Like everyone else, I improvised with what I had on hand. I only had 1 can of beans so that was what I used, plus I added a few cloves of chopped garlic to the seasoned beef and bean mixture for flavour. I topped each beef layer with salsa and the resulting dish was both tasty and fun to prepare. I'll definitely make this again!

Chocolate Mayo Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
I followed another reviewer's advice and reduced the mayo. I made this recipe into cupcakes, and was really impressed by how beautifully they rose with nice dome tops. Also, they were at the perfect moisture! I frosted them with my favourite fudge frosting recipe, but I recommend you choose a lighter frosting than I did as the cakes themselves were very heavy--combined with the rich frosting I used it was hard to finish even one. The next time I make this cake I'll experiment with increasing the cocoa (could have used a bit stronger cocoa taste) as well as adding a bit more sugar and vanilla for flavour.

Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
Everyone who tries this pie says it's amazing! I added 1/4 cup more coconut and 1 teaspoon more vanilla, and topped it with homemade whipped cream. This is my dad's absolute favourite of all the desserts I make; he goes CRAZY for it and even brags about it to other people whenever the subject of my baking comes up in conversation. Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe--it tastes heavenly and has earned me a great reputation as a baker.

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
Delicious. Great flavour and a nice, crispy texture. So easy, too! I will make this recipe again, but the only change I will make next time is to halve the garlic as it was a little too strong for my liking.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
Even though I have a bread machine, I made this bread by hand because I wanted the full experience. This recipe was perfect; I wouldn't change a THING. It yielded two gorgeous and delicious loaves that my family happily polished off within a day. They were very impressed, especially my younger brother who ate nearly an entire loaf on his own. I loved how the egg wash gave the baguettes such a lovely shine on top. Thank you for this amazing recipe which I will undoubtedly be using many times in the future!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
PHENOMENAL CARROT CAKE; both taste and smell are to die for. I followed the recipe exactly but made individual cakes in both regular and mini muffin tins to bring to a party. They were perfectly moist. I topped the cakes with cream cheese icing and they were a hit. I will never use another carrot cake recipe--this one is perfect.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
DELICIOUS. I used 3 bananas. As per other reviewers' suggestions, I mashed the bananas instead of slicing them. The bread was perfectly moist and its flavour was superb! My whole family loved it. My Dad ate quite a lot of it and claimed it was great, and he has never been a big fan of banana bread. This recipe converted him!

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
After baking this cake I've been told by many chocolate lovers that this is THE BEST cake they've ever tried. It is incredibly rich, moist, and chocolatey--the ULTIMATE death by chocolate. Don't be discouraged by the runny batter because it bakes beautifully. The only thing I tweaked was the frosting--I reduced the sugar quite a bit (over 5 cups of sugar is way too sweet for my liking), taste-testing until it met my preference (probably somewhere near half the original amount). Just a warning, though: you only need a small slice of this cake because it is extremely filling. I am begged constantly to make this recipe. I am certain that there exists no better recipe for chocolate cake than this one.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
Excellent brownies. As the title states, they were incredibly quick and easy to make. I topped them with a fudgy frosting and my family and I dug in, and we were all very pleased with the result. As per other reviewers' suggestions I used only 1 cup of flour--great taste and perfect consistency, not cake-like at all. This has become my go-to brownie recipe.

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
The taste of these brownies was good, but nothing special, this coming from a peanut butter lover. I also had a hard time with cooking these-- the middle just wouldn't cook through, while the sides got hard and even a little burnt. It didn't really cook evenly and didn't taste exceptional. I wouldn't make these again.
