Cake Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
I used a white cake, lemon frosting, and vanilla almond bark. They were delicious, but a little overly sweet. I think if I make them again I might try melted chocolate chips instead of the candy coating.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
I had to add about 2 extra tablespoons of buttermilk because the dough was too dry to knead at first. Then I baked the loaf at 350 instead of 375, and it was perfect. The second time I made it I added orange craisins, and mini chocolate chips, and it was even better!

Mini Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
These were a cinch to make, and had a beautiful moist texture, but I thought that the spices and butterscotch chips totally overpowered the pumpkin. If they were called "butterscotch muffins" I would've liked them better I think, but I was expecting more pumpkin taste.

Chile Relleno Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
The chile/cheese/egg part was ok, kind of like a spicy quiche filling, but the combination of the custardy part and the chunks of ground beef was downright bizarre. It tasted weird but kind of ok the first night, but the leftovers were completely gross. I do not recommend this at all.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
This was waaay too chile powder heavy for me. I read some other reviews that said there was too much, so I doubled everything else except for the chile powder and oil (to try and make it slightly healthier). It still tasted overwhelmingly of chile powder, you couldn't taste any of the other spices, and it made the enchiladas kind of gross, even when topped with tons of salsa and cheese. I definitely would not make this again without drastically changing the chile powder/spices ratios.

Lighter Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
These look so pretty, but were too heavy and chewy for my taste. I added 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce and 1 tsp vanilla since other reviewers said they came out dry, so maybe I added too much liquid, but their consistency was really dense, and they stuck to the papers really badly.

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
My father is diabetic, so I cut out the sugar completely, and reduced the molasses to 1 1/2 tbsp but the recipe still came out great, and everyone said they tasted sweet. I also put them on very low heat in my crockpot for about 3 hours instead of baking them, and they came out perfectly.

Soft Breadsticks

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
This was a nice and easy recipe. Like other reviewers I added an extra 1/4 cup of flour, then I placed the breadsticks on a greased baking sheet and brushed the tops with melted butter combined with garlic and oregano. I think next time I might add a little more topping, they were a little bland, but nice and chewy.

Graham Cracker Crust II

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
Easy, and with much more flavor than store-bought crusts. A little thick for icebox pies, the crust gets hard to bite through when it's cold, but otherwise it's perfect.

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
A good cake, but not as dense as I wanted. It tasted almost exactly like angel food cake, and I wanted more of a pound cake.

No Sugar Apple Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
This is delicious--but the "no sugar added" title is a bit misleading, it's very sweet! It almost put my diabetic father in a coma, but the rest of the family loved it!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
This came out as a really heavy, not quite cooked in the middle crust. Maybe it's because I tried it for a deep dish pizza, but I thought it was way too heavy, even after following yeast-rising tips and recommendations from other reviews.

Triple Strawberry Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
This is light and delicious, a perfect summer dessert. As many other people mentioned it works best with only the water directions given on the jello package though. I tried it twice, once with a strawberry flavored cake mix, and once with a white cake mix. I much preferred it with the strawberry cake mix. Although the white cake mix was pretty with the strawberry jello running through it, it was also kind of dull.

Melanie's Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
I started with this basic recipe, but since I don't much care for tomatoes I halved the diced tomatoes, and doubled everything else, with both pinto and kidney beans as suggested. It came out pefectly for me! I liked the good flavor, but limited number of ingredients, because some of the chili recipes I found were way too complicated.

Lemon Pie I

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
This is my new favorite dessert! It's so easy, and fabulous. I thought it wasn't quite lemon enough the 1st time, so the 2nd time I made it I used 2/3 cup lemon juice, and it came out a little softer, but zingier, which I like. I also put a few drops of yellow food coloring, to make it the perfect lemon-yellow color. It's my new standby though, it's so easy and delicious!

Double Chocolate Brownie Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
This light, rich cake can be completely decadent with a chocolate frosting, or just delicious with a powdered sugar glaze. I have made in a 9x13 and just baked for 35-40 minutes, and it comes out beautifully too.

Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
I liked these a lot, they were easy and browned well, but didn't have quite enough flavor for me. I had the best luck with a batch that I put back into the egg and back into the breadcrumbs a second time before frying, but I would recommend more garlic or Italian seasoning to give a little more kick to them.

Rugelach

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
I don't like nuts, so I actually did not taste these myself, but they were very easy to make, and everyone who has tried them has raved that they are flaky and delicious, but not too sweet.
