Key Lime Daiquiri Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
While this cake certainly had it's good points, overall I was a little disappointed. The flavor was certainly delicate, and would have appreciated a stronger lime taste. Maybe next time I will double the amount of lime zest I put in. The glaze was delicious, but I think I would also double the amount of glaze to make the cake more flavorful overall. As per other reviews, the cake was actually ready after about 75 minutes. It was a little dry I felt also. Sour cream as a replacement for milk may remedy this. I think I will try again and make some alterations as the cake does have potential.

German Sweet Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
This cake turned out really well. I had gotten sick of paying $2.50 per slice at the grocery for German Chocolate cake so thought it was about time I made my own. The sponge is light and moist. The frosting is yummy and I had to be careful not to eat it all before it went on the cake. Just a word of warning, make sure you seperate the egg yolks really well for the frosting. I got a little white in the mix and ended up with boiled egg type lumps in the frosting. Fortunately they were big enough to pick out and didn't spoil the frosting. The recipe is a little fiddly compared to a standard sponge and take a little while, but the texture makes it worth the time investment. I would recommend making this recipe.

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
I made this for a Sopranos season premiere party we held with some friends. Following some lasagne rolls this was the perfect finish to the meal. The tiramisu was sweet, but not too sweet and also nice and light. I will certainly make this again.

Easy Chicken Korma

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
This recipe was simply and extremely tasty. I added a can of Rotel and some coconut, which enhanced the creaminess from the yogurt. I also cooked half the sauce over veggies instead of chicken to cater for a vegetarian friend. I actually think I preferred it with the veggies. Overall the sauce was very good and satisfied my Indian food cravings.

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
This made a wonderful, rich dinner. The blue cheese gravy would certainly work with any meat. It was delicious served over mashed potatoes as well as the meat.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
This recipe is simple, but delicious. Having made it twice, I've found this a hearty, tasty soup. However, the first time I made the soup, I used canned low sodium chicken stock which I found preferable to bouillon cubes and hot water. I did increase the spices as well as add 1/2 tsp ground cloves which works nicely.
