Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
Excellent recipe. I've been making creeps for years and couldn't find my recipe so I tried this one. I find this makes a thicker crepe than I prefer so I added an additional 2 to 4 tbsp of milk. This made a nice, thin crepe. Also, I find it easiest to put all the ingredients in a blender, adding the flour last, and mixing it that way. This makes a very smooth batter and pours easily. Another tip is to use the size of pan than you would like your creeps to be. Then you can just swirl the batter to the edges for nice, round crepes. I agree with the reviewers than suggest to add some butter to the pan before adding the batter- either for every crepe, or even every second crepe if you have a good pan. I take the whole pound of butter with the wrapper peeled back a little and swipe it quickly around the pan. I like to cut of some bananas and strawberries and fold the crepe up then finish with a drizzle of chocolate or syrup! Yum!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 4, 2006
I have made this recipe about 25 times and it comes out great each time. They stay soft and fresh for a while. Today I made a really chocolately version where I substituted 1 cup of the flour for cocoa and used chocolate pudding instead... WOW, talk about a yummy, chocolatey cookie! Definitely worth experimenting.

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
WOW! This is so delicious and moist! My can of pumpkin puree was 19 oz and I used all of it. I didn't have a 10 x 15 pan, so I used a 12 x 17 pan and baked for 25 minutes. We can't stop eating it even without the cream cheese frosting!

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2004
This soup is absolutely amazing!! I didn't roast the squash like some suggest, just peeled it and cut it up. I didn't have any marjoram or cayenne so I didn't add it, but I did add some salt and parsley. I also added a cubed potato and 2 cut up carrots. I also made it once where I added a zucchini. It was very delicious and I only used about 3 tablespoons of light cream cheese- still nice and creamy (but it also tastes good without any cream cheese at all). You could probably cut up and add other vegetables too, like red peppers, and it would taste great! One tip though: you can use other varieties of squash other than butternut, but choosing one with a smooth skin, rather than grooved or bumpy skin, makes it much easier to peel. Thanks Mary!

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2004
This cake is absolutely delicious! I've made it over 5 times and everyone always says it's the best cake they've EVER eaten. As stated, it does takes a couple of hours from start to finish (including cooling time and clean up) but it is worth it! I always use a cup of espresso coffee and sprinkle coffee grinds on top instead of cocoa. I've made it with both cream cheese and mascarpone and there is little difference. I don't usually find cream labelled "heavy" cream so I opt for Whipping Cream. I prefer using Kahlua liquor- it adds a really nice flavour. Make sure to make it the day before so the cake can absorb all these delicious flavours. I will be making this cake for many years!

Chocolate Lovers' Favorite Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
UPDATE: 2nd Review. TRY IT IN VANILLA!!! Not sure if anyone has made this suggestion yet so I thought I would. I've made this cake so many times (see first review below) and made a vanilla version for my "allergic to chocolate" husband. It was amazing and I think I like it better than the chocolate. I used a Duncan Hines French Vanilla cake mix and a vanilla pudding. Used vanilla extract and omitted the chocloate chips. I cut the baking time by about 5-10 minutes so it's extra moist. It's best served at room temp. I also used a cream cheese icing on top. You have got to try it! First review: Wow! What a delicious cake. Everyone raves whenever I make it... and I make it a lot. Just to make it even more rich, I drizzle melted Lindt chocolate on top and sprinkle it with white and dark chocolate curls! This makes an otherwise not-so-pretty cake look fabulous.

I used the plain chocolate chips and added Skor Toffee Bits to the recipe along with less oil. They were delicious!
