Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2005
This recipe is perfect and the pie delicious! I have made it many times. I decided to add one tablespoon of cornstarch to the sugar and cinnamon mixture to thicken it slightly the last time that I baked it and it came out fine that way. My nephew wanted an apple pie for his 9th birthday and so I made this for him. It was a big hit with him!

Cream Puffs II

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2005
I found this recipe helpful, but didn't see the need to scoop out the soft dough. Once baked and cooled, I didn't have a lot of soft dough inside of these. I love sweetened whipped cream and found it to my liking when I made these. I just made certain that the heavy cream was whipped to form stiff peaks and filled the cream puffs rather full, serving them immediately is the trick! If you cannot serve them right away, I suggest freezing them. Take them out of the freezer about an hour before you do serve them. I used chocolate syrup instead of the melted chocolate chips. Any flavored syrup, like strawberry, would also be good.

Trout Amandine

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2005
This recipe was a snap to prepare and it came out very good. In my opinion, fish recipes are best when kept simple, and this was just about as simple as it gets!

Scrumptious Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: May 29, 2005
I needed a quick recipe for shortcake for a last minute dessert during the Memorial Day holiday. I read some of the reviews and decided to go with the opinion of those who did not use cream of tarter, and only 3 teaspoons of baking powder. As I mixed in the egg and cream, I decided to add a bit of vanilla to the dough, using one teaspoon. I liked how it came out. The shortcakes were good enough to eat alone, without any fruit or whipped topping!

Raspberry-Almond Crumb Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2005
I found this cake to be delightfully scrumptious. I made it very late one night and in a tired state of mind, and forgot to add the sliced almonds to the topping. The cake came out so smooth and delicate in texture and flavor that I actually think that the sliced almonds weren't necessary, it seemed to just melt in my mouth! The almond extract was just the right amount for an amaretto type taste. Serving it with a flavored coffee such as hazlenut or french vanilla would be a nice compliment to the crumb cake. The next time that I make this cake, I will try it with the almonds, only I might chop them up finely to add to the crumb mixture to keep it crumbly.

Green Beans with Bread Crumbs

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2005
This was an easy side dish to prepare. I also added some sliced mushrooms that I needed to use up. I added a bit more garlic powder to my liking. I found that 1/4 cup of olive oil seemed to much, so the next time I will use less.

Lemon Zucchini Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2005
I also used a well greased and floured bundt pan for this recipe. It came out very well. I always use the rind when shredding the zucchini. It provides color and fiber for the diet. This cake was moist and tasty. I topped it with confectioners sugar as the recipe called for, but a light lemon flavored icing would be nice drizzled on top of the bundt cake, as an alternative. Suggestion: Orange zest and orange juice could be substituted for the lemon zest and lemon juice. I will make this again!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2006
This pecan pie was easy to make and so yummy to eat! It also filled my home with a delightful aroma as it baked in the oven! This is one to prepare just prior to having guests arrive if you want a warm welcome when they walk through your door!

Marble Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2006
I was making this as a layer cake, for my daughter's birthday so I made it in two batches...the first as an experiment to see if I would like it and how it would turn out. I found it a bit too dry for my liking (the edge was crumbly), but the taste was good, like an old fashioned wedding cake. On the second batch (layer) I decided to add 1/4 cup vegetable oil. That seemed to have "done the trick." The end result was way better. I iced the cake with buttercream icing and it was good.

Nutty Pumpkin Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2006
These were to die for! They were so easy to prepare and smelled delightful steaming from the waffle iron! For those who decided not to use the pumpkin syrup on the waffles, you were missing out on the best part of the recipe. The taste is so scrumptious that you could use it over ice cream placed on top of the waffles as a dessert! As a finishing touch, I used whipped cream as a topping and all I can say is, "WOW!" This is a keeper!

Walnut Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
This was easy and all who had a slice loved it! I used two eggs instead of one and 1/2 cup of brown sugar in the pumpkin custard mixture.

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
These were easy to make and very yummy, even my daughter that doesn't care for gingersnaps that much ate them! I used unsalted butter instead of shortening. They rose nicely in the oven and then flattened just before I removed them from the oven. I see that some of the photos submitted are a light color. Mine came out a dark brown. How did other's make them look so light in color as if they didn't use molasses or dark brown sugar? At any rate they were chewy and flavorful and everyone loved them.

Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
I made a half batch of this recipe using a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of vanilla just to try them out and they turned out really good. My family and guests devoured them immediately. For a holiday effect I rolled out the dough and cut out star shapes sprinkling granulated sugar on top of the rolled out dough before baking. Like someone else said, "They are so easy to make that you feel as though you are cheating."

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
The simple things in life are always the best, and that is how these little tea cakes are. Simple is also great when you are making a varied amount of cookies during the holidays. A variation on these cookies might be to use almonds instead of walnuts...perhaps adding a teaspoon of almond extract, as well.

Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
This was my first time making Snickerdoodles and they turned out fabulous! This recipe makes a large batch of cookies. I shared them with family members and with the people at work, and even a few of my customers! Everyone loved them! I'll be making these again!

Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
EASY! I wore latex gloves to keep my hands from getting messy. Also, I used only one teaspoon of almond extract, that was plenty for me.

Nana's Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
Preparing and baking this was a snap! I used 4 huge apples, which seemed sufficient. However, I think if one wanted, they could add a few more apples to the recipe and it would be just fine. I used less butter on the top, about one tablespoon dotted around. Whole oats was what I had on hand, they worked out well. Also, I replaced 1/2 cup of the one cup of white sugar with dark brown and then used 1/2 cup white sugar. I will make this again.
