Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
Thank you for a pumpkin pie recipe that uses fresh pumpkin. I am a Canadian who has moved to Australia and we do not have canned pumpkin or pumpkin pie spice here. I looked for a substitution for the spice on this website. I used Martha Stewart's pastry recipe for the crust. I took it to a shared lunch and my Australian coworkers were very eager to try it. They really liked it - one said it was better than the chocolate cake! They all want Mrs. Stigg's recipe. It seems doubtful that a cake with all that milk will work, but it sets up beautifully.Thanks for a great recipe.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
This was a wonderful cake. I made it for a Tupperware party and it was really well liked. I used cream cheese (8 oz of cream cheese, 3 tbsp sour cream and 2 tbsp heavy cream) instead of the mascarpone. I followed the advice of some other reviewers and doubled the coffee in the cake batter. I did two layers of the coffee cake and one vanilla. The coffee needs to disolve so either disolve it in a tiny bit of hot water, or mix it in and let it sit until dissolved. I also doubled the coffee and Kaluha that I drizzled into the cake. I was stressed that the cake would be soggy. It wasn't at all. I doubled the kahluha everywhere it was called for (filling and frosting). The flavour of coffee was very light and nice. I do not drink coffee and I really enjoyed the flavour of the cake. Thanks for a great recipe. I will try mascarpone next time to see if there is a big difference in flavour.

Waikiki Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
Delicious. My four kids loved it. I followed all the directions except I added only 1/3 cup of brown sugar, 1/3 cup vineagar and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. It tasted great and was not too sweet. I followed the suggestions of some other reviewers: I baked the meatballs in the oven (350 F for 30 minutes) and made the sauce directly in a sauce pan. I served it with rice and steamed vegetables. I will be adding this to my regulars.

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
These burgers tasted great. They took only a few minutes to throw together with my teenage daughter. We made the burger patty exactly as written, but had no bacon to top them with. I am sure they would have been even better with it! They turned brown quickly so we reduced the heat so that they could cook more slowly. I suspect it was because of the ketcup, worchestershire, or cheese. Thanks for the recipe.

Pecan Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
These muffins are delicious. Anytime I take them anywhere, they are a hit. I always include them in my Christmas baking. Just five ingredients make these a cinch to make. I use mini muffin tins which I spray generously with cooking spray. They took 15-17 minutes. Turn them out onto a cooling rack as soon as they come out of the oven.

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
This soup is the best tomato soup I have ever tasted. Be sure to use nice tomatoes (I use vine-ripened tomatoes). The fresh basil gives this soup its wonderful flavor. If you love basil you will love this soup. I pureed about 1/2 of the soup instead of all of it, which was perfect. I read other reviews and reduced the butter to 1/4 cup and the cream to 1/2 cup. Thank you for the recipe, it is 100 times better than anything you get in a can.

Peppermint Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
This fudge was so easy to make. My family and I thought it was delicious! It looks lovely on a tray of Christmas cookies and sweets because of the crushed csndy canes. I added 1/4 tsp of peppermint extract and you could barely taste it. I will use the 1/2 tsp next time. Thank you for sharing!

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2006
I have made this cake recipe for every family birthday for the last 4 or 5 years. I have 4 children, so I know this recipe off by heart now! It is a little crumbly, but I make it the day before and put it in the fridge. This seams to change it into a very moist cake. I consider this a good thing, because then I always have the cake ready ahead of time. It does stick in your pans terribly, so be sure to line your pans with baking paper (or parchment) and not just butter or butter and flour them. This is a really delicious cake. I would make something different for each birthday, but my husband and kids ask for this chocolate cake every time. Now if they would only learn the recipe and make it on my birthday.....ha ha.
