Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
This cake is FOOL-PROOF! LOL and delicious. I made it as directed which gave me about half a sheet. I shared it with my family as well as with some of my church members who called it "divine". I'm not sure if it's the buttermilk but it is VERY hard to overcook this cake. It come out perfectly every time. I added banana cream instant pudding (dry powder) to up the flavor and it was wonder. The cake it light and tender and not overly sweet - a great compliment to the cream cheese frosting. I dropped some slices to my brother and his family - he's not big on sweets but he called me hollerin about how awesome it was. I've already transformed the basic recipe into a carrot cake - YUMMY! I'll keep playing with flavors because the texture is first class! Melt in your mouth perfection. Thanks Cindy!

Tortillas II

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
These came out great. Fairly crisp (The thinner the crisper I'm guessing) although some were a bit softer and those seemed to be the slightly thicker ones. I made these for ground chicken tacos and they were a hit! No need to run to the store - the rolling may take a bit of time but it sure was deliciously worth it! :)

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
The tartness definitely comes out. I would have macerated the cranberries for a little while before if I had known - but it came out so excellent even with the tartness that I have to give this 5 stars! It's probably perfect as is with whipped cream or ice cream. So I think I'll add one of the two and see. The consistency was amazingly moist and moderately dense in the best way! I opted for vanilla extract instead of the almond extract because I find even the smallest drops overpowering except, of course, in almond cookies. :) I highly recommend this quick and easy dessert. It's a keeper!

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
Delicious! I did this 30 minutes in the pressure and pureed (scaled down to 20 servings) - it smelled like the holidays all through the house and tasted like heaven! I used for Apple Butter Ham Glaze recipe (found on this site) - each was YUMMY!

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
Pretty disappointed. This was pure watery mess. It did seem odd to me no flour or cornstarch but so many rave reviews I went on and tried it. I didn't have time to read all the various reviews. Hate to have wasted so many of my wonderful apples and my wonderful pie crust. :(

Banana Cake V

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
YUM!!! This is awesome! UNBELEIVABLY moist an tender!!! Not your average banana bread! I cannot express how perfectly this turned out. I added 1/2 cup banana (to use up what I had) which required me to bake it an extra 10-20 minutes (in a loaf pan b/c I just moved and couldn't find my bundt pan). Thank you! Perfect for company or a gift basket. I made a yellow icing and drizzled zig zags. Beautiful. For icing: 1 cup powdered sugar Milk (add until desired consistency is reached) 2 drops yellow food coloring 1/2 Tsp banana extract (or to taste). Can even make little banana designs if you make a small bit of the icing green! Enjoy!

Egg-Free Dairy-Free Nut-Free Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
Amazing!! This cake is moist and delicious. I chose it not because of allergies but because I had no dairy ingredients and wanted cake! lol Instead of 1 cup cold water I brewed a few cups strong coffee and chilled one cup. I also added crushed walnuts (since I usually LOVE them in brownies). This is a keeper!

Lemon Gold Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
Delicious. I found mine to be slightly like sponge cake in texture. Just slightly. But very delicate and light as many reviewers have stated. I'm a lemon fanatic and I found the lemon flavor not to be very pronounced as I would have like. I added 1.5-2 Tbsp lemon zest and 1 tsp lemon extract but it didn't explode with lemon flavor as I had hoped. Either way it will definitely be a delicious new addition to my repertoire and I will try it again tweaking to get that perfect punch of lemon and probably some other flavorings. Thanks for a great recipe!

Mediterranean Linguine with Basil and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
This recipe was simple and unbelievable! I tried it because it sounded simple and fresh and I had all but the basil leaves on hand. I substituted dried basil leaves and was still in ecstasy when I took the first bite. When you add the plump little tomatoes to the oil it creates this beautiful aromatic liquid and the garlic and basil are perfection. Hit it with the Parmesan and toss it - it's heaven - warm and flavorful I didn't think it needed S&P but I added a touch since I was sharing the dish. The only alteration I made was that I used thin spaghetti because I didn't have linguine on hand; I also added extra Parm after tasting it not really because it needed it but because the flavor was out of this world and I just wanted more!!! It just melted in my mouth. I've been looking for this for a long time. This is a restaurant quality dish. This is definitely a keeper and I WILL be sharing this recipe as well.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
Simple recipe and absolutely delicious. I added a simple glaze first (1 cup powdered sugar and approx. 1 tsp milk (adding more as needed and eyeballing for a thicker consistency)) and then sprinkled on cinnamon-sugar. Beautiful and moist. They make the house smell amazing!!! lol Yum!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Fabulous! Love this recipe. I add a dash (1/2 tsp - 1 tsp) cinnamon for another layer of flavor. Toss it in with the dry ingredient mixture. Just the right amount and you can't tell exactly what it is you just know there's something extra and delicious hiding inside! Yum!!! Also to make sure they're PERFECTLY fluffy I use an old school secret - beat the egg whites (separately) and beat the butter/buttermilk mixture to create bubbles then fold the two together to create a fluffly liquid mix. Add dry ingredients to this mix and you're guaranteed a fluffy and delicious batch of pancakes! If the batter is too thick add a little milk a tsp at a time until desired consistency is achieved. Btw, there's NOTHING like cooking on a griddle!!! If you don't have one get one! From a BIGTIME pancake lover - Happy eating!!!

Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Don't underestimate these!!! I almost did but I made them for a surprise party and I was SO upset that I didn't make more. While preparing for the party my best friend and I took a taste when they were fresh from the oven. OMG!!! Ridiculous!!! These are so good and there's no way to screw them up! As one reviewer said - the more brown sugar the better - I didn't have time to let them marinate, next time I'll give it a try I can't imagine them being more delicious and flavorful. I used center cut bacon - perfect! These are Sooooo addictive everyone at the party was fighting for the last one - lol - seriously!!! Give these a try you WILL NOT regret it!!!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
I learned to make MM Fondant recently and love using it. How simple and very inexpensive (as well as delicious). So fun to experiment with as a novice; it makes me want to find excuses to make strangers cakes! lol Just want to say that I could look at all the displays for hours - I saw a lot of really amazing and talent-laden designs. I'm hoping to do my own wedding cake so I'll be practicing. Thanks all for sharing your beautiful and yummy labors of love.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
These definitely need to marinate before just throwing into the oven. The sauce was a nice glaze for the meat. I doubled the sauce which worked out great because when I put it in the oven it was enough to make a nice bath of bubbling glaze around the meat - perfect. I also only did 2 bone-in chops. I recommend trying this one.

Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
I love lemon desserts and this one is wonderful. I LOVE lemon meringue and every birthday a cake with lemon filling. So, I scaled the recipe down to about half the servings, since it's just for 2 and 32 is quite a bit and I think in doing so I accidentally added a tablespoon or two more flour into the lemon mixture - it created a super thin and smooth cake crust top but still had the tender lemon layer underneath that was thick and warm and absolutely delicious! Actually, the thin little cake crust didn't hurt it at all and the bottom crust was tender, buttery and perfect. Next time I'll watch that (the flour) just because I love the appearance of the original. This is SOOOOO good. I ate three straight from the oven - perfect and lemony! YUM!!! Thank you so much for sharing this one!!!

Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
This souffle is delicious and custardy. I cut the recipe by half since I was only cooking for two and I thought it was a great new way to prepare carrots as a side dish. I cut the sugar by about a third. I'll be making it again and sharing with friends and fam who are bored with the normal carrot recipes.

Vanilla Wafer Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
These taste more like a combination vanilla/sugar cookie to me without the sugar crystals on the outside but boy are they good! I doubled the vanilla extract. They are SOOOO buttery and delicious - the whole batch was scarfed down. Yum! I like my cookies soft so I did a batch in 11 minutes and a crisper batch in 15 minutes but they both had a softer (not crisp) center even after cooling - the second batch had a crisper exterior edge though. Like I said I like them soft so it was perfect for me - I was just kinda testing to see the difference. I recommend these. Quick, easy and delicious!
