Creamy White Layers

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2006
This recipe got rave reviews at a recent wedding shower. I cut the cake into four layers and replaced frosting with white chocolate mousse layering the mousse and fresh strawberries between each layer. The batter looked a bit thick, so I added more heavy cream. It turned out perfect, not to sweet or heavy, but light and moist and dense enough to hold up the four layers.

Sweet and Sour Sauce I

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
This is a great and easy recipe. I use it all the time with meatballs and always get positive comments on it. I find the original portion too small, though, so I usually quadruple it. It even stores well in the fridge for the next day - don't worry if it looks like jelly, it'll smooth out once you warm it up again.

Corn Dip II

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
Wow is about all I have to say about this one. It never makes it to the fridge without a few (or a lot) chips going into it. I've never had to throw any away.

Breaded, Fried, Softly Spiced Tofu

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
First time I've ever used tofu and I loved it. I tried to replicate a recipe I had in Beijing. This wasn't quite right, but it definately satisfied the craving! It's great with the sweet chili Thai sauce.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
This dish hasn't even made it to my party yet and I've already shared the recipe. I couldn't find raspberries, so I chopped up a peach instead. For the fruit preserves, I happened to have a jar of rose petal jelly in the fridge (can't even remember where that came from), but I added that and, wow! It's sure to be a hit at the baby shower tonight!

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
I haven't made much bread - I'm a cake and cookie expert, though - and this recipe was so easy! It rose quickly and made three, nice, big, fluffy loaves of bread. I had to try it straight out of the oven. The crust was nice and crusty and the inside wonderfully soft. No dense loaves here! I can only imagine it with soup or peanut butter and jelly - that is if it lasts that long! Thanks for a great recipe!

White Chocolate Blondies

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
Loved this one! I brought it to a Thanksgiving family gathering and it went as fast as the pumpkin pie. I doubled the recipe and baked it in a glass 9x13 pan and had to add at least 10 minutes to the cooking time. While it cooled on the counter, I made some chocolate ganache (with semi-sweet chocolate chips and whipping cream over a double boiler). I let both cool to room temperature and then spread the ganache over the blondies. I then let it set over night and cut it into rather small bars. This is a really rich recipe. I do agree with some that it is a little dense, but it almost tasted like a cheesecake - some people thought it was. I may try it again with a little less white chocolate. The toffee idea sounds good, too! Thanks for a new favourite!

Taco Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
Tried this recipe for the first time the other day. Wow! I had some white corn tortillas kickin' around, so I used those. I also wanted to up the veggie content, so I added a black bean and corn layer. I'm not a huge fan of canned salsa, so I topped mine with home made pico de gallo and some sour cream. For a little extra heat, I also added a minced jalepeno to the beef. It's even great as leftovers! I fed to to my sister for lunch today and she expressed several times how good it was. Thanks for a fabulous keeper!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
Wow. This was my first attempt at cornbread and I don't think I'll ever need to look for another recipe. I made it exactly as is, only doubled the recipe and added some bacon drippings that just happened be sitting on my stove from the day before. Just tasted my first bite warm from the oven with some butter on it... mmm... It's supposed to be for our BBQ dinner tomorrow, but I think I may have to make a second batch before then. It's too good to just let sit!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
I rarely use this recipe to actually make pizza, but it makes fabulous pizza bread. Often, I add herbs to the dough when I am kneeding it. Once it is spread out on the pan, I'll add herb oil and then sprinkle it with parmesean and feta. Hot out of the oven, it's amazing and my family loves it!

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
Tried these for the first time this weekend - WOW! My family loved them. They're the best fresh out of the oven with butter, but still good warmed up the next day. Next time I think I'll try some sweet ones!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2013
Amazing! Super easy to make and roll out. I didn't change a think in the original recipe, but took the advice of someone else and rolled them out using icing sugar instead of flour. These are going straight to my niece's birthday party!

No Crust Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
This one is great if you're too lazy to prepare or even buy a crust. I made it for my grandmother and we polished off a whole pie in two days! Well worth not so much effort.
