Buttermilk Honey Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2005
Excellent. The texture was smooth and the flavor was delicious. My dough seemed really sticky for being bread dough, even with lots of kneading, but it turned out really really great. I suggest baking on a cooking stone or cookie sheet.

Skillet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2005
This was soo good. I don't like a lot of onion taste in my food, so I halved the onions and celery and it came out perfect. I've been craving some good corn bread for a while, and this recipe was just right.

Banana Chai Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2005
While this bread had a really good creamy texture, it didn't have much in the way of flavor. It could have been because I didn't have any actual chai tea to use, so I added about 2 tablespoons of dry chai mix. It tastes good, but there's just not a lot of flavor there. If I make it again I think I'd try to find some good black tea chai and brew it really strong, and use older browner bananas.

Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2005
This was a quick, easy and really good recipe for someone with a sweet tooth. The only changes I would suggest making would be to lower the sugar a little bit. I cut it down to a half cup of sugar and it still was bordering on excessively sweet. Also, I think next time I make this, I'll pour the caramel sauce overtop and then put it in the oven. I'm used to pudding cakes being more 'pudding' like. If you follow what the recipe says, it still turns out a really tasty, moist cake with a surprising amount of flavor...I can hardly keep my hands off of it:)

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2005
These muffins were good, but I've had much better. If I make these again I think I might add some walnuts or pecans to them, to add more of a nutty flavor. Also, I was able to fill 13 normal sized muffin tins from this recipe, so it makes just a bit more than what it says.

Chemical Apple Pie (No Apple Apple Pie)

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
For what it was, it was a good pie. It actually tasted like an apple pie, although the texture was similar to applesauce. Probably won't make it again-just because I can make apple pie with real apples:)

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
These rolls are sooo good. I don't think they taste just like a cinnabon does, but they're the best cinnamon roll recipe I've found yet. A definite keeper in my recipe box. YUM:)

Strawberry Dream Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2005
This cake was awesome. I didn't have any strawberry jello at the time, so I used blueberry flavored jello and it still turned out so so good. It looked funny because of the blue jello, but it tasted absolutely delicious, and my entire family could harldy keep their hands off of it. Something I will definitely use again.

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2005
I'd been looking for a recipe that called for white chocolate chips since I bought a ton of them, and this recipe put them to good use. The cookies were tasty and flattened out nicely, and had really good taste. I did, however, just use vanilla instead of the brandy and liked them quite a bit.

Chocolate Crunch Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2005
This was only ok. No one wanted to wait for it to freeze completely, so we tried it before it was hard and everyone agreed that it was good enough. Once it froze completely no one really wanted to eat it again. The flavors or texture just isn't quite right on this one.

Walnut Maple Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2005
This tasted like plain vanilla fudge-not what I expected at all. It's only redeeming qualities are its ease to make, and its smooth texture. If you're looking for something that tastes really 'mapley', keep looking.

Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2005
I did not like this at all, but maybe it was because it wasn't what I was expecting it to be.

Drew's World Famous Triple Rush Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2005
The hot chocolate was ok, but as the recipe suggested, it definitely needed to be thinned with more milk, otherwise it is like drinking chocolate syrup. It was good enough, but I think I'll keep looking.

Minnesota's Favorite Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2005
These were really good cookies. Halfway through baking them my oven broke, so I pressed them into the pan from my toaster oven and made them into bar cookies, which I ended up liking more than the drop cookies. Sweet, chewy, and gone way too soon:)

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2005
This was perfect. I didn't have any on hand, so I made ladyfingers using a recipe from this site. I also don't like a really strong alcohol taste in my food, so I mixed about 1T of Kahlua and about 1/3c of coffee and used that instead of the liqueur. Finally, since I had so many ladyfingers and couldn't think of anything else to use them in, I layered the mascarpone and ladyfingers several times, which came out delicious. This tastes good as soon as you put it together, and gets better (if you can keep any around) the next day.

Ladyfingers

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2005
I used this recipe for the tiramisu that I wanted to make, and they came out pretty good. I was expecting them to come out a little puffier like the store bought cookies, but they flattened out (although they stayed soft). I ended up keeping mine in the oven for exactly 8 minutes, and they were baked perfectly.

White-Hot Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2005
This was nice twist on regular hot chocolate. I didn't have any cayenne papper on hand so I substituted chili powder instead and it was still pretty good. You may want to strain it before you drink it if you don't like little bits of floating spices.

Fudge Layer Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2005
The cake itself was pretty good. It has a smooth texture and just the right amount of chocolate in it. However, if you don't want your cake-making efforts to go to waste DO NOT make the frosting. While it does taste ok, no amount of begging, pleading or threatening would make the stuff spread or stick to the cake. I tried using a frosting knife, a butter knife and even resorted to trying to press it on with my fingers but it just would not stay on the cake. Even though it ended up looking really terrible, I was able to convince people to eat it and they admitted that it tasted good, but just looked bad.

Frosted Banana Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2005
These were really really good, but mine came out more cake-like than bar-like. I made my own cream cheese frosting (8oz cream cheese, 1/4c butter, 2T honey, 1t vanilla and 2+c powdered sugar) and it came out tasting great. The flavor of the banana was just the way I like it.

Peanut Buttercup Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2005
Peanut butter is the perfect addition to hot chocolate. Just make sure your hot chocolate is hot enough to melt the PB so you don't end up with peanut butter chunks on the bottom of your mug. The first time I made this I didn't make the milk hot enough, and the second time I just melted the PB in the microwave and it mixed in better. It's a nice tasty drink for a cold day:)
