Rhubarb Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2007
Loved this so much I made some of the crumbly topping in place of a top crust for a traditional strawberry-rhubarb pie. It was great both ways.

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
I may have stumbled upon the problem some people are having with this recipe. It's the amount of evaporated milk. When a recipe says "one can" I usually just go with what seems to me to be a standard sized can. But before I poured it in the saucepan this time, I checked the ounces. Whaddya know? To me, a can of evaporated milk is 12 ounces. But this recipe only calls for a 5 ounce can. So be sure to check the size of your milk can! I personally LOVE the fudge you make from the recipe on the back of the marshmallow cream jars. But the cream contains eggs and my son is allergic. (Marshmallows themselves usually do not -- weird, huh?) Anyway, this reciped turned out better than any other non-marshmallow cream variety I've tried. It's creamy, sets up well and tastes nice and yummy. (With all that butter and sugar it ought to!) A quibble is that to my eye it never really lost its gloss. But I quit beating after several minutes anyway and it turned out fine. No nuts for us due to allergy issues as well -- that can be a problem with some fudge recipes I've tried but not this one! Try this an be diligent about the milk measurement and you'll be pleased. And of course, as with anything with milk and this much sugar, forget the directions to stir "frequently" during the heat-up stage and just plan on stirring constantly.

Super Moist Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2005
A HUGE hit at our family holiday party. I skipped the walnuts for allergy reasons. Wonderful when served with a dollop of whipped cream. Yum!

Rich and Delicious Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2005
I use Spectrum organic shortening -- no cholesterol -- so this becomes a no-cholesterol, no-trans fat treat! If you've never made banana bread, don't worry that it's very dry before you put the bananas in -- they'll make up for it. Also, for fun I tried putting in a couple handfuls of chocolate chips -- yum!!!!!!!!

Never-Never Ever-Ever Fail Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2004
OK, I tried this twide. It never set up right (better the second time but how many tries is it gonna take??!!) The flavor is great, but it's just a gooey mess. I boiled 5 minutes. The first time, I think I boiled too long or hard. Hmm. I'm very disappointed. I used to make fudge with marshmallow cream that turned out great. But my son is allergic to eggs, so I have to use a recipe with actual marshmallows -- I'd hoped it would work.
