Maple Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
The baking soda taste is overwhelming. Would not make this recipe again.

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
These were extremely dense, like heavy pancakes. I would never use them for a hamburger-- I wouldn't even be able to bite through the whole thing! Taste was fine, but we will be eating these rolls for breakfast rather than using them for burgers.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
Something tasted slightly "off" about the chocolate. I attribute this to the shortening. Next time, I would take another reviewer's advice and make it without shortening. In my experience, the addition of shortening-- a very unhealthy hydrogenated substance that most animals won't eat-- rarely benefits a recipe.

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
My bread did not rise the second time. I believe that I did everything correctly. The bread turned out very dry and dense, with an unpleasant texture. Luckily my husband was willing to eat it anyway.

Buttermilk Bread II

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
This delicious recipe has the flavor of a buttermilk biscuit, thanks to the addition of baking soda. I made a few changes, but it still turned out wonderful. I didn't have buttermilk, so I used reduced-fat sour cream instead. I also used 1/2 white whole wheat flour. These changes probably added some density to the bread, but still turned out delicious.

Bread Machine Challah I

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
So I made a few substitutions, but it turned out great! I used 1/2 white whole wheat flour (my new favorite flour!). I also used honey instead of sugar. Turned out perfect in my bread machine. Yay!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
I used all the substitutions suggested by the previous user (pineapple, applesauce, etc). WOW what a great carrot cake. I made a wedding cake out of this lovely recipe, and filled the inside with pineapple whipped cream. Delicious. Everyone raved about it for weeks.

Rum Raisin Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
Great recipe! My husband loved it. It's a little more like a polish egg bread than a normal bread, though. I also made a great version of this bread with a few modifications: I substitutes half the flour for whole wheat pastry flour, and I added half of a cooked yam to the mix (and omitted the raisins and rum). Yummy! An excellent bright yellow potato bread. I highly recommend it.

Hearty Raisin Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
This bread was mediocre at best. Boring wheat bread with a few raisins thrown in. My husband won't eat it, so I'm using it for French toast.

Pina Colada Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
The rum/pineapple/coconut mixture was delicious, but the cake, unfortunately, was not as moist as I would want. I guess the sauce did not penetrate to the bottom of the cake. I would definitely make this again, but maybe next time I will poke holes in the bottom and fill the cake, then after an hour turn the cake right-side up, and penetrate the top of the cake with the sauce. I'm sure that would be rummy and delicious!

Burnt Sugar Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
The texture of this cake was great, and I liked it quite a bit with a thin vanilla sugar glaze. But I brought it to a party, and nobody liked it! I had to explain to people that it was supposed to taste like caramel, but nobody was sold. I'm certainly not going to make it again.

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2006
I expected a dense and sweet cake, but it was extremely light and fluffy. I was very unimpressed.

Aunt Gail's Oatmeal Lace Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2005
These are perfect cookies! I have had so many complements on them. My favorite variation: After the cookies have cooled, Melt some semisweet baker's chocolate and put a spoonful on the bottom of a cookie-- then sanwich it with the bottom of another cookie. The chocolate acts as a glue, and they become sandwich cookies. Delicious! However, make sure that your cookies cool totally flat for this to work.
