Coconut Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
This is just like my grandmother's cake with a few exceptions - her recipe calls for crisco instead of butter, buttermilk in place of the milk, more coconut extract (a tablespoon), and no nuts in the glaze. Instead, you poke holes all in the cake with a toothpick and pour the glaze on top of the cake so that as much of the glaze as possible is absorbed into the cake instead of sitting on the botth of the dish - doing it this way makes the cake supermoist and flavorful! Excellent!!

Charleston Shrimp 'n' Gravy

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
These were amazing! I followed the recipe exactly and the flavors were amazing! This was my first-time to make a roux and it was really easy. This was my mom's first-time to eat shrimp n grits and she loved them. So did my husband who is a shrimp n grits conneisuer - he said this should be our new recipe for when we have company over for dinner! I served this with the creamy cheesy grits recipe also on this website.

Creamy Cheesy Grits

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
These were amazing! The only changes I made were to use vegetable broth instead of the chicken (was feeding a vegetarian) and I eliminated the nutmeg. I served these with the Charleston Shrimp n Gravy also from this website. A Mother's Day Meal to die for! My mom and mother-in-law both had seconds and my vegetarian father-in-law couldn't go on enough about how great the grits were!

Emily's Famous Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Good cookies. I did as others suggested and used extra cocoa and less flour. Cookies turned out great - I used a combination of flour and cocoa to dust them with when I rolled them out. I used fudge icing and they tasted almost like brownies.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
Absolutely wonderful! As other reviewers suggested, I used balsamic vinegar instead of white vinegar and cut the sugar to 1/4 cup. Other than that, I follwed the directions exactly. Our dinner guest, who is a chef, also loved it!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
If your icing turns out splotchy, you need to stir your icing more to dissolve the powdered sugar more. This recipe tasted good, but for better artistic ability, I think I will use royal icing next time. Edit 2013 used this again for Christmas cookies and turned out much better. Make sure to follow directions and I had to use a lot more milk, but the icing was easy to use, dried well, and tasted great.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
Awsesome cake. You do not really taste the coffee in the cake - it just further enhances the chocolate flavor. If you want more coffee flavor, I would try adding espresso instead of coffee.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
My husband told me this was the best banana bread I had every made - a perfect 10. I did add about a teaspoon of nutmeg and ground cloves, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It is wonderful!

Nanaimo Bars III

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
Definitely make half of the bottom layer. I also used the instant vanilla pudding and regular milk instead of the heavy cream. They turned out wonderful - just like the ones I had on Salt Spring Island!

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 23, 2012
These are phenomenal. My husband is not a huge fan of cottage cheese, so I now I make these without the cheese mixture. So easy and it makes enough for two dinners for us, so I freeze one for an easy dinner later. Great!

Coffee Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
Excellent frosting recipe, althought it did not have as much coffee flavor as I had hoped (and I doubled the chocolate and tripled the coffee amounts). Next time I think I will add espresso instead of coffee. I quadrupled the recipe for a 9 inch layer cake and did not need that much - even with decorations, I ended up with a lot of frosting left over. I would recommend tripling the recipe for a layer cake.
