Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2015
I really love this recipe! I had to try it, after tasting it at a friend's child's birthday party. With so many of our friends' children having egg allergies and having some vegan friends, too, this recipe is perfect. Even my egg-loving dad says the cakes come out tasting very good. After reading other reviews, I've made the following adjustments: Chocolate (original) version: I subbed cooled coffee for the water, which gave it a richer flavor. Vanilla GF version: I replaced the amounts of the AP flour and cocoa powder in the recipe with GF flour, and doubled the amount of vanilla extract. My hubby actually preferred this over the original, with and without frosting. Orange version: For the recipe halved (9 servings), I replaced 2/3 of water with OJ and, added the zest of 1 large orange, and subbed orange extract for the vanilla. I baked it in a Wilton giant cupcake pan for closer to 50 min. My mom thought it was too sweet, but my dad and 3yo chocoholic son loved it. I might have to reduce the amount of OJ, or do only fresh-squeezed next time. It doesn't even need frosting. I usually do one small cake for my children to blow out the candles, and the rest are cupcakes. The cupcakes usually take as long as the box mix versions do. I will be making the original and vanilla versions for my daughter's first birthday party next week. I'm so glad my friend referred this recipe!

Whole Grain Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
My family loves these! Since my husband hates dried fruit, I just leave them out. Sometimes, I adjust the recipe to include some pecan or almond meal (as a sub for the ground walnuts), and I use dark chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet. My husband always wants to eat 4 at a time! Thank you!

Rosemary Mashed Potatoes and Yams

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
I love this recipe! I make it every year for Thanksgiving, as my family always requests it. I usually keep half the recipe at home, as my sister will always take any leftovers from the meal. Thanks!

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
This recipe was so easy! I just used a regular non-stick saucepan, and it came out great. It came out so well without the suggestions. I had my 2 sticks of butter at room temperature (by my own forgetfulness), which might have helped the cooking process. I tweaked the chocolate addition to incorporate a mix of dark chocolate and vanilla candy wafers, and it's delicious! I have to resist the temptation of eating it all in one sitting. I think will try using different nuts next time.

Roasted Red Pepper Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
The recipe was good. It was a bit too sour for my taste, so I would probably add another 1 or 2 peppers to get more of the pepper flavor. Additionally, I had to figure out on my own what temperature and for how long to roast the peppers in the oven. I went for about 400 at about 30-45 minutes. Overall, I think I'll keep this recipe in my arsenal. Thanks!
