Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
These are awesome, I made a ton of sweets this holiday season and these were by-far the favorite. I have no suggestions for improvement, they're perfect the way they are. Follow the recipe EXACTLY and you're set.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
These are perfect, it's true. I like to make mine with half the butter, and they still turn out amazingly! Happy baking!

Double Chocolate Mint Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
These have an AMAZING texture. I use half the butter. As a variation, I used half the mint extract and used mint chips instead of chocolate (their green color is more festive for Christmastime). Great recipe!

Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
So delicious, honestly I wouldn't change a thing and agree with most of the other reviewers, the fresh pumpkin (I used the boiling method) truly makes a difference!

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
This is really easy to make and completely awesome. I love cream cheese frosting, but find that it's usually too rich, but this is seriously perfect. It's great on red velvet cupcakes!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
This is a great recipe. I frosted them with a whipped cream cheese frosting (recipe from allrecipes). They only thing I didn't like was the amount of red food coloring required, I scaled back a bit and they still had a nice red hue. I guess it depends on how important the final color is to you— they are red velvet afterall. Very delicious for sure!

Macadamia Raspberry White Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
These were tasty, but the texture was a little gummy and (as others have noted) the cookies can turn green during the baking, which isn't fun to explain to people. I even added a little red food coloring to counteract it, but to no avail. If you're up for experimenting, I would find a way to add the jam post-baking, or perhaps (if it exists) using some sort of raspberry flavoring or extract instead.

Pumpkin Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
I, like so many others followed the recipe exactly and wound up with a mushy, sticky, paste-like substance. It was a shame because the taste was really good. If yours ends up this way you can re-heat it to make it a bit more fluid and put it on ice cream.
