Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
This cake is easy, impressive and most of all, delicious. I always drizzle the top with the Hard Chocolate Glaze and its ready to go! When there isn't time to make a cake completely from scratch, this is my go-to cake for sure!

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
I usually make homemade granola bars for my husband to take for a work snack and when I saw this I thought I'd give it a try. He doesn't like raisins so I substituted choc chips and I can't really review these from my own taste perspective because I am one of the few who doesn't like chocolate and PB together...but they came out great (so I'm told). The choc chips melted into the mixture, so they turned out like chocolate/peanut butter Rice Krispy treats. There was no baking and the whole recipe was done in about 10 minutes. As a little side note, I've found the easiest way to spread batter like this or granola bars into a 9 x 13 pan is to flatten the batter to a relatively even layer with your spatula, then lay a piece of wax paper over the top, put in an 8 x 8 pan, apply pressure and smooth back and forth.....works every time!

Hard Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
This is so yummy and soooo easy. I always use it to top the Too Much Chocolate Cake on the site. People rave...its absolutely wonderful. I ususally use salted butter because thats pretty much all I buy and its fine.

Carrot Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
These are wonderful! Moist, fluffy and delicious. I doubled the recipe and ended up with 24 full-sized cupcakes and 24 minis. I used a regular cream cheese frosting, and added in orange zest, which I used in the cake batter as well. (I had oranges in the house and wasn't about to spend $5 on orange extract). I also didn't measure out the individual spices, I was in a hurry and went with about a tbs. of pumpkin pie spice, my favorite! Like others, I cut the sugar slightly and you'd never know. And for those thinking the pineapple is a weird ingredient, don't worry, its great. I used the stick blender and pureed a can of chunk pineapple. It added great moisture and that little something you can't quite put your finger on when you taste them. My husband doens't like pineapple at all and went nuts over these!! ENJOY

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
Outstanding! Topped it with the Hard Chocolate Glaze recipe and people went nuts for it. The cake goes a long way too, you can only eat a super skinny slice because of the richness. I served it with fresh whipped cream and strawberries. This is the perfect Passover dessert!

Passover Apple Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
This came out really yummy! I followed other reviewers' suggestions of doubling the batter and I atually broke up the recipe into 2 cakes (one for Seder and one for my husband to try at home before I served it to the family)! I baked them in an 8 in. square pan and a 9 in. springform. I also topped both cakes with a brown sugar crumble to make them look a little prettier. The secret to eliminating the bland taste of the matzo is the seasoning. I rarely measure cinnamon and nutmeg out (I know, big sin), I just eyeball a tbs. or so of Pumpkin Pie Spice which I think has the best flavor. I also couldn't find matzo cake meal in any stores, so I just put the matzo meal in the food processor and buzzed it until the texture was just about flour-like. This one's headed for the Passover recipe file!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
These are wonderful, and so easy! My husband is not a raisin fan, but had a cranberry/orange scone at Starbucks and I just couldn't be out done by them! These were 10 times better. I used 1 C dried cranberries, the zest of an orange and pumpkin pie spice to taste (about 1 tsp.). They would be just as great with chocolate chips or plain old cinnamon sugar. To make them extra sweet, make a traditional powdered sugar glaze to drizzle on top once they cool. YUM! (Regarding the butter comments, I ALWAYS use Land O' Lakes salted butter no matter what a recipe calls for. If a recipe calls for salt in addition, I just omit it and I haven't gone wrong yet.)
