Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
Sweet frosting that hardens. Worked well on soft sugar cookies IV from this site since those cookies aren't overly sweet.

Baked Ziti with Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
Huge portions. Great recipe. Versatile: used what I had, which was black bean burgers instead of sausage and rotini instead of ziti. Excellent. I will make it again for sure and can't wait to try with sausage.

Jewish Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
Excellent, moist cake. I will definitely make it again. If I were using a pan where I was going to flip the cake at the end, I would start with apples. I liked having them on top. I used 9 very small Gala apples and followed Janyce's recommendations. (Apples mixed in unmeasured sugar and cinnamon, add juice from apples, more apples, 3 layers of each, 1 tbsp vanilla, order of ingredients.) The batter is very thick and delicious. Cake was a big hit.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2014
Wonderful! Great texture and flavor. Don't skip the shortening, as I think it's the key to raising these cookies to amazing status. They are like Lofthouse cookies from the grocery store, but without unnecessary extra ingredients and strange chemical flavor. My husband doesn't like Lofthouse cookies but loves these. I like both, but definitely prefer these. This will be my go-to sugar cookie from now on.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
This was only okay in my opinion. I don't like boxed cakes and I thought adding a few extra ingredients would change that, but it didn't. Adding chocolate chips is definitely a huge improvement, but not enough for me to make this again.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
Delicious and easy! I will definitely make this again. Baked for 27 minutes in a quiche pan and it turned out soft in the center with a great golden crust across the top and on the edges.

Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
Delicious recipe for pancakes! Despite the reviews, I used the full amount of baking powder and it was fine - no chemical taste in batter or final product. (Maybe the reviewers with issues used baking soda?!) I used vanilla soy milk because it's what we use, and added 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Perfect. This is now my go-to pancake recipe. Thanks Chef John!

White Mountain Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
Great cake. Dense, moist, delicious. It's very important to beat the egg whites until they are stiff and to be very gentle when folding them in. I frosted these cupcakes with sturdy whipped cream frosting, which was a bit of a boring combination. The ones where I had added some chocolate chips in the batter were better so I will either do that for all of them next time, or I will frost with chocolate frosting. Overall a great cake.

Vegan Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
I was in the middle of making another pancake recipe when I realized that we didn't have any eggs left. A quick search led me to this recipe and it didn't disappoint! They were fluffy, delicious, and turned out perfectly brown each time. Best when eaten immediately. Because I had already started with another recipe, I already had 3/4 cup rice milk with 2 tbsp vinegar so I filled up to 1 1/4 c with water. I recommend it whether you are vegan or not!

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
After reading all of the reviews I was really torn on whether or not to add an additional cup of milk. I decided not to and the cake was fantastic. Perhaps it would have been even better with it, but I didn't want to risk it and was very pleased with the results. It's a great cake: good flavor, great texture. I love the combination of vanilla and almond. I made this into cupcakes and in each, put one medium cookie scoop's worth of batter plus one small scoop. It yielded 24 cupcakes, which I baked for 17 minutes. Thank you for the recipe, Carol!

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
Delicious. Someone asked me if there was yogurt in this frosting! It's tasty and not too sweet. Highly recommend.

German Marble Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
Delicious. Yes, it's dry, but it's really good. I added a box of instant pudding and it was still dry (maybe should have removed that amount of flour instead of just adding it). But it wasn't dry in an unpleasant way - it's just a dense and drier cake than most are used to in the US. I used Bailey's instead of rum and it was delicious. I don't normally like liquor in desserts, but it gave it an extra little subtle quick. I loved the almond extract with it, too. This was a big success when I brought it in to work. I took it out after 60 minutes because I could smell that it was done. Thanks for the recipe, Carol!

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
Chocoholics rejoice! This is a fantastic super-chocolatey cookie! I refrigerated the dough overnight and found it rather difficult to work with in the morning. I ended up scooping out a tablespoon of the dough then rolling it between my hands. Very messy but effective. I would recommend making them bigger, more like 2 Tbsp of dough, and cooking them 9 minutes. They don't have to be done to be delicious. I will definitely be making these again!

Popovers

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
Fantastic! Really good. We were trying to recreate popovers from a nearby restaurant and these are actually better - not as greasy. If you use a muffin pan (instead of a popover pan), it will make 11-12 popovers. No fail recipe with delicious results.

A Twist on Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
Loved that it didn't use bottled dressing. It was easy to make and tasty. Didn't change a thing and it was a big hit at the party we brought it to. Highly recommend!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2012
These banana crumb muffins are awesome!! Thank you Lisa! The only modification I made was to add vanilla, but I don't think it was necessary. I made a double batch because I had 6 bananas to use up. One ice cream scoop of batter is just the right amount per cupcake. I put half of the topping before baking, and the other half halfway through - this way some was melted into the batter and some was still crumbly on top. I thought there was plenty of topping and would not make more than the recipe recommends. A big hit as it is!

White Layer Cake

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
This cake is wonderful. The consistency is perfect. It's moist, dense, vanilla-flavored, YUM! I will definitely make this cake again. I have tried it as 2-9" round cakes, with a layer of red raspberry seedless jam and frosted with Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting (from allrecipes). That combination was delicious. I will also try it with chocolate frosting next time. Can't go wrong with this recipe!!

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
Good and easy. You don't have to be exact with the ingredients and can easily substitute with whatever you have on hand. For the cheese, I used a mixture of conte, fresh mozzarella, swiss, and feta and it worked well.

Crunchy No-Fry Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
The chicken stayed very moist and I liked the breading. However, next time I make this, I will make the following changes: 1. don't crush the corn flakes as finely - I think it will have more interesting texture, mine wasn't crispy, 2. add herbs for more flavor. Otherwise, good dish.
