Apple Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2002
I made this for a family get together. Everyone loved it. We have an apple orchard in our family and we are always looking for new apple recipes to make in the fall. Fairly easy to make and pairs well with "Caramel Frosting I" from this site. Thanks for the great recipe.

Choconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2002
I doubled this recipe. Mixing the sugar and the almond paste took a lot of unexpected work, my fingers were so cramped up. Eventhough I packed the coconut when I measured it, I had to add extra to make the egg whites less runny. I used a small cookie scoop to get a nice mound of coconut. They kind of fell apart on the sheet but I just reshaped them and they held their shape when baked. After all that I was very pleased with the end result. They turned a nice golden brown and didn't ooze the egg whites out the bottom. I couldn't stop eating them either. They are so addicting. The almond paste is secret ingredient in these. It's a good idea to put the mini chips in the macaroon rather than dipping them in chocolate, easier too. Good recipe to try if you like coconut and chocolate. I will make again, just will have to find a short-cut with the almond paste and sugar, maybe have my husband do it. :)

Peanut Candy Bar Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2002
This recipe is very easy and yet very rewarding. It's sweet and salty just like a Payday candy bar. I actually had this recipe a few years ago and lost it. I'm so glad Suzanne posted this. It's just like the one I had. Thanks!

White Chili I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2000
I had a recipe like this years ago that I found in a magazine. It used 1 lb. of dry navy beans and it would take hours for it to boil on the stove. My friends and family always raved about it. This recipe is so much easier and it tastes as good as my other recipe. For any one who isn't sure about trying this recipe, go ahead and try it, it's fabulous!

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2005
Easy and delicious pie. I liked that the real taste of the apples comes through and is not masked by a lot of sugar and cinnamon, but is still plenty sweet. I used half white and half brown sugar when topping the apples. I also liked that this pie wasn't runny causing the bottom crust to get soggy. The baking time was pefect to bake the apples and the bottom crust throughly without burning the topping. I used 5 cups of Jonagolds and have to say this is one of the best apple pies I have ever made.

Apple Cake IV

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2005
This recipe is delicious. I picked it because of the 5 star rating and the rave reviews. It turned out pefect and very rustic looking with the sugar/cinnamon topping. I used my stand mixer to beat the eggs and sugar, 15 minutes on high is just perfect for drowning out the kids. It was also perfect for me to peel and slice my apples. I used 4 very large Jonagolds. I used the full amount of sugar but cut the oil in half and used 1/2 cup of applesauce. The cake was perfectly moist without being too heavy. I do have to agree with another reviewer to be sure to test the center with a toothpick. I started with 50 minutes and ended up baking it the full 60 minutes. I definately will make this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Gelatin Spritz Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2002
I made these last year for Christmas and had no problems making them in my new cookie press. It was my first time ever making spritz cookies. I came back this year looking for this recipe to make them again. I made green lime Christmas trees and yellow lemon stars. I also sprinkled on colored sugar before baking them. I was hesitant at making these, but I am glad I did. Yum!

Blueberry Crumble

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2000
I'd been looking for a one crust blueberry or cherry pie and this recipe looked perfect. I made this but in a unbaked 9" pie crust and used half of the butter and cake mix (I skipped the pecans). I covered the crust with tinfoil and baked it about 10 min. longer than the original recipe called for. I saved the rest of the cake mix to top off a cherry pie I'm going to make like this. Very easy and a big hit.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: May 19, 2005
These were really good. I added about 1/4 cup of butterscotch chips and 1/8 cup unsalted sunflower seed along with the raisens that are optional in the recipe. You can very easily exchange other ingredients you have on hand and they were very easy to whip up in a hurry. Thanks for submitting the recipe.

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2005
These are delicious! They are best a little warm with vanilla ice cream melted on top. The crust and crumble topping are great and stay crunchy days later. I used fresh blueberries the first & third time I made these and black raspberries the second. The blueberries is still my favorite. I followed the recipe exactly but I used butter flavored shortening sticks (makes them stay crunchier longer!). This is my new favorite summertime dessert. I still want to experiment with more fresh fruit, I'm thinking of tart cherries. Mmmm!

Raspberry Sour Cream Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2001
This is a great recipe. I substituted 3 cups of fresh sliced peaches for the raspberries and it was fabulous. I brought it to a party and it was gone in no time. Everyone loved it. Someone even said a pie like this can't be bought in the store. A+++

Strawberry Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2003
This cake was delicious! I baked mine in a 9x13 inch pan for about 35-40 min. and I used a cream cheese frosting and added about a cup of fresh strawberries. My husband is a strawberry lover and especially loved it. It was such a hit that this is what I am using for my daughter's 1st birthday cake! Pink frosting and pink cake, perfect for a little girl!

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 18, 2004
This is the best chocolate cake recipe. It's very easy and moist. I have only baked mine in a 9x13" baking pan (just follow the baking time in the recipe then gradually add to it until a toothpick comes out clean). I love to frost mine with a cool whip pudding frosting. Try "Cool Whipped Frosting" on this site submitted by Shirley.

Pignoli Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
These are so good, very light and like a macaroon. I made them for my brother's family that has gluten allergies, I hope they like them as much as I did. Very easy to make in the food processor. Highly recommended!

Caramel Frosting I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2005
Excellent! Very easy to make and it tastes sooooo good. I wanted to make a pourable frosting so I only added the first 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. I also had to add some extra milk because after it cooled a bit it turned into a big glob. I put it on a apple bundt cake, a perfect combination. Thanks for the recipe. I definately will be using this again on many different things.

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2004
This is an excellent recipe, my two year-old LOVES this. I've made it with shrimp and broccoli and chicken and broccoli. The store bought alfredo in a jar doesn't even compare. This is loaded with calories and fat, but it's well worth the splurge every once and a while. No problems with it getting thick enough either. One last tip, use fresh grated parmesan not the pre-packaged shredded stuff. I had trouble the second time I made this with getting the cheese to melt smoothly when I used the store shredded cheese.
