Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
Great recipe base to use and create your own flavours by just adding spices. I didn't use a store bought stock but instead made my own with the water that was used for cooking the chicken and the vegetables. It's more healthier that way I think. I have also used the filling recipe as a base recipe for creating creamy and non creamy soups. Through this recipe, I have learned how to make my own soups from scratch! Great recipe on its own (but I add more spices for more flavor - a little tumeric goes a long way) and a good recipe to turn on your creativity.

Paradise Pumpkin Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
I am not a fan of pumpkin pie but everyone in my family is and just devoured this pie right up. They said it was the best pumpkin pie ever. I used cane sugar for the cream cheese part and brown sugar to give it more depth for the pumpkin part. I heard it was very creamy and delicious!

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
This is a wonderful cornbread recipt that I make into muffins. For myself, they were on the sweeter side so I cut the sugar to 3/4 cup and they were still really sweet. I would probably cut it further to 1/2 cup next time (I used organic cane sugar to make it more healthier). I also used whole wheat flour to get more fibre. Trying the original recipe, I used the amount of cornmeal suggested and I thought it needed more. I added a half cup extra the second time but I think doubling the cornmeal would be even better. This recipe, I believe makes a wonderful base recipe for any kind of muffins or cakes. Just substitute the cornmeal for flour or bran or whatever. This recipes is very flexible. Don't cut out the sugar if you want to make sweet muffins though or cupcakes. Also, if anybody is worried about their cornbread being dense or wanting to convert this recipe into a cupcake or other kind of muffin, just give the butter a good 5 minutes of whipping using the stand mixer. This makes it light and fluffy tasting. I really loved this recipe and look forward to testing it out in making other cake like recipes. Thanks for the great recipe!

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
This is the most delicious shortbread out there! I have been looking for a recipe like this for a very long time. It's melt in your mouth buttery goodness. Obviously not the most healthy sweet treat but one of my absolute favorites. I followed the recommendation by kathleen with the constant whipping (this is key), however you can use margarine so don't be put off by the recipe if you don't have butter on hand. I have even tried this recipe with whole wheat flour and it was still great. You won't be disappointed!

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
I baked this cake for my boyfriend's birthday on the weekend and it was a hit! People thought it was a boxed cake mix cake but I had to let them all know that, No- it's from scratch! I frosted it with a coconut cream cheese frosting and it was delicious. I think that the cake one its own was quite sweet and I may cut down the sugar next time by 1/4C-1/2C. Also, if using frosting, it just adds to the sweetness. I followed the recommendations by naples34102 and because I didn't have cake flour, I substituted 2 tbsp cornstarch for 2 tbsp of the all purpose flour. I also used 2-9 inch pans and baked them about 23 minutes but found that the layers weren't nice and thick like a store bought cake, so I may try and double the recipe in the future to make a really tall cake. The cake itself was a hit and I am glad to have found a great basic cake recipe that is flexible to use for many kinds of cakes and different occassions without having to use a boxed mix. I just don't like articificial ingredients. Also, I am curious if anybody has attempted to make this cake healthier (for example use whole wheat flour and a more natural sugar). Please post a review if you do. Thanks for the great recipe!
