Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
Another 5 star rating. Made these along with other cookies for my husbands work - these were the first to go to the "lucky ones." They are like cookie brownies and very rich and chocolately.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
This cake is absolutely the prettiest, tastiest cake. It well deserves its 5 stars because it is easy, tasty and cuts into the most perfect slices. It was better than the cakes we have been buying from the Italian bakery. I want this to become my new "Classic" and will bring it everywhere I need to bring dessert.

Fusion Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
I loved this chili - so did my daughter who does not like chili. There are so many flavors that develop while you eat it. It is like a gourmet chili. If I owned a restaurant this is the chili I would serve. That being said, my husband and son only rated it a 4 - they loved the fusion but thought it was a little too sweet - they do not like their chili to have any sweetness. I will be making this again!

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
This recipe was excellent. I made it exactly as written and the dough was wonderful to work with. The recipe was quick and easy - no problems with rolling out the dough. You really do have to roll them out pencil thin, though because they rise really well and if they are fatter they will probably make a pretzel knot instead. I always like to try the recipe as written first, and if it works or not, making changes if possible. I can't wait till my next day off to make these with all kinds of seasonings! I also tried brushing them with the butter and salt before baking, but they come out much better if you just do the baking soda and water, and when they are done you put the melted butter and salt on them.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2007
I have made these 3 times now - and now I'm known as the Lemon Bar Lady! Everybody loves them. After reading through the reviews I've also cut down on the time of the baking the crust, about 12 minutes and the completed bars for about 20 minutes with the oven at 350. (You just really have to check for the golden brown.)I also make 1/3 more filling to pour over (that was the easiest with 1 extra egg)and they are absolutely perfect. I have given the recipe out 3 times now also, and everyone is waiting for the next batch.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
Add another 5 star review. These muffins were wonderful - just the right sweetness, moist and blueberry-y. I doubled the recipe and made 12 very large muffins. I let them sit on a rack for about 30 minutes before removing from the greased muffin tin, not one stuck or broke, all 12 came out beautiful!

Corn Spoon Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
I brought this to a potluck and while sitting at the table a murmur started around the room. "Who made the corn?" When people found out I made it, lots of people requested the recipe for Thanksgiving. I made the recipe as written, but doubled it, and added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and used 1 stick of butter. I cooked it in the crockpot for 4 hours, then put it in the oven at 350 for about half an hour to brown the top.

Easy Never Forgotten Guacamole

This is the best guacamole we've ever had. Made it almost to the recipe except used minced red onions and minced garlic - it was perfect.

California Roll Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
This is one of my favorite salads. It is so easy, different and tasty. I use the wasabi paste in a tube from the oriental food aisle or sometimes by the fresh salad section. I also add some sugared ginger sprinkled on top, and some grated ginger in the dressing. Sushi is all about the ginger for me! I usually don't mix in the lettuce, but put the salad on a bed of lettuce for people to take if they want. I also tried adding the sushi seaweed sheets chopped up and mixed in- did not like it at all.

Apple Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
This cake came out beautiful. It held it's shape well and was a pleasure to cut and eat. I made it to the recipe, except I used oatmeal instead of walnuts and 1/2 cup of brown sugar for the topping and 1/2 cup brown and 1/2 cup white sugar in the batter. Oh and after spreading the bottom half and putting on the apples and 1/2 the topping, I added 1 Tablespoon of milk to the batter to help spread it easily. I also did not have a tubed spring form, so put it in a round spring form, and after 40 minutes of baking, I shut off the oven and kept it in for 15 minutes more. The color was perfect and it cooked through nicely.

Meatloaf with Fried Onions and Ranch Seasoning

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
I have tried so many different Meatloaf recipes, that my family never knows what to expect. But everyone said this was the best meatloaf I have ever served. Moist, flavorful and it held it's shape. Although the canned fried onions don't stand out like you think they will, they add a nice soft onion taste to the meatloaf. I also used the whole ranch packet, because I never use up the halves. No one drowned their piece in ketchup like they usually do, in fact no one even used any ketchup. This will be my go-to meatloaf recipe.

Mary Oppenhiemer's Butter Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
This cake recipe is great. After reading the reviews I tried it because I wanted a cake that would hold its shape for and April Fool's Day spaghetti cake. It was perfect, sturdy but fluffy, moist and rich tasting. I covered it with a buttercream frosting and strawberry jelly (for the spaghetti sauce) and cocoa-krispy treat meatballs. I can definitely see this cake used as a wedding cake!

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
Theses were amazing. So moist and tasty. I did most of the changes other reviewers suggested: I used 1/2 cup of applesauce and 1/2 cup of crushed pineapple for the oil, and I used 1/2 a cup of whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour. I also cut the sugar down to 3/4 cups of brown sugar. I mixed it all by hand. The recipe made 18 beautiful, pretty healthy, moist and yummy muffins. I did not use muffin papers and used none-stick spray in the tin. Pulled out of the oven after 20 minutes. Thanks so much!

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
This is a really nice, easy recipe that looks beautiful and tastes better than I've gotten in some restaurants. I basically followed the recipe, but had no fresh spinach, so used half a box of frozen. Everyone loved it!

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
I've made this a few times now, and it's always well received. I use a few more sheets of phyllo Since I just can't do it t like the recipe explains. I just put sheets of phyllo in the pan, put in the spinach mixture, fold over the ends and add more phyllo sheets on top so it's all covered.

Double Caramel-Pecan Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
This cheesecake was yummy and extremely easy to make. I made a mistake in measuring, so ended up having to double the recipe, which was actually a good thing because it was gone quickly when my husband brought it to work. I ended up making a 9 X 13 inch rectangular pan and a 7 X 11 brownie pan. They came out light and tasty. I did use the melted caramels in the cake, but drizzled caramel sundae sauce over the top.
