Split Pea Soup with Rosemary

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
Wow. this recipe is just as good as everyone said, if not even better! I didn't even add salt and pepper, just didn't need it. I also skipped the bay leaf since i don't cook with bay very often and I didn't want to buy it at the store. One note, the green split peas work dried. I wasn't sure if I needed to precook them or what since it doesn't specify, but I put them in dry and they turned out great. I let the soup simmer an extra hour too since i was busy around the house and the consistency was perfect. Soooo good!

Bananas Foster II

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
Love it love it love it! I used tatoo rum by captain morgans and a squeeze of lime for an extra kick. I served it all with a jamaican rum spice cake and it was delicious. Great recipe.

Lemonade Pie V

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
I really liked this recipe. I have made a pie like this before but never with the whipped topping and it was a nice addition. I also tried this with limeade and it turned out great. For presentation, I added some green food coloring (just enough so it was a pale green ) and 1/2 lime rounds around the edge of the pie.

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
Wowser! This is one is a doosey! I read the reviews and followed the advise not to keep all the liquid after the carrots were macerated. Also I pushed the pineapple into a seive to drain extra juice out. It still came out incredibly moist with alot of flavor. I added coconut to the recipe, adding 1/2 cup coconut and reducing the raisins to a 1/2 cup. I also put coconut between the cake layers with the frosting and people loved it. Thanks for the great recipe.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
this cake had a great flavor and texture but honestly it wasn't the best chocolate cake I've ever had. I found it a little bland. I'm not sure what it was exactly but it lacked oomph. Maybe a knock out frosting would help? I didn't find it that rich at all.

Molasses Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
After reading the reviews of this recipe, I didn't know what to think. Nevertheless, I made it and loved it! I don't know why you would make a molasses cake if you didn't like molasses, but even my friends that weren't big fans of the stuff loved the cake. I did cut the molasses by about a quarter cup and frosted it with a black walnut buttercream frosting. I found the texture and flavor to be well worth five stars. I highly recommend this recipe!

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
This recipe lives up to all the hype! Really crusty on the outside and moist on the inside. I tried the lower temp (I cooked it at 350) and it came out perfect. A small note for non-bakers: this dough is really crumbly looking until you knead it. It freaked me out at first and I even added 1/4 cup buttermilk, but in the end it worked fine. Great recipe!

Pumpkin Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
This recipe turned out not quite as I expected. Although it was very moist and had good flavor, I am not sure why the nuts were added with the dry ingredients. I had a hard time getting the flour that was stuck in the crevices to blend with the wet ingredients when I mixed the two. Next time I will add the nuts after mixing the rest of the components like I normally do. Otherwise, very tasty.

Beer Spice Cake

Reviewed: May 1, 2006
this recipe lived up to all its rave reviews! It was so easy to make and I couldn't believe how fluffy and moist it was. I cooked it in nine inch rounds instead of a loaf pan to make a layer cake that was iced with cinnamon butter cream frosting, toasted coconut and chopped walnuts. The brown ale I used added a great flavor as well.
