Fudge Brownies I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
My initial thoughts were 3 stars - they judge didn't taste that chocolatey to me. Looking through the reviews, I took a suggestion and upped the chocolate to 6 oz - 5 unsweetened and 1 semi-sweet (the next time, I did 2 semi-sweet and didn't really notice a difference between the two) and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The added chocolate make the brownies "fudgier" and definitely made them deliciously chocolatey. There's something still not quite perfect for me, I think I might try making this with 3 eggs instead. I cook them in a 9x13 pan for 30 minutes and I Don't use nuts (hate em in brownies). I might try one reviewers suggestion of two eggs in a 9 x 9 pan for 30 minutes. Will update if I do.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
I had the same problem as another reviewer with my cakes coming out "dome" shaped. I left it as two layers, and I shouldn't have. I really like the taste of the cake and I'll make it again. For those who aren't already super experienced bakers, the frosting was a NIGHTMARE. I've never made butter cream and every instruction I found online said "cream butter with sugar" and it was all sorts difficult. Also, it made WAY too much, and I also only used the 3.5 cups of sugar that another reviewer stated. I still found the frosting as only "ok." Next time I'll try the cake with a chocolate cream cheese frosting.

Creamy Twice-Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
These were PHENOMENAL! I didn't add cheddar cheese as some reviewers did (and I really don't think they needed it). The only thing I think I'll do differently next time is that instead of only cutting a sliver off, I'll got them in half. I followed the portions and ended up with a TON of filling - I didn't want to waste it so it ended up spilling all over the top. I think if I'd cut the skins in half, I'd have a bit more wiggle room with the filling.

Fast and Easy French Onion Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
I was not a fan of this, although I might try it with some of the things suggested in the reviews. I may be odd, but I LOVE the store bought Dean's French Onion, and this, as made according to the recipe, just didn't compare.

This is YUMMY! It tastes just like chocolate cake, and when I had my friend make it with me, she said, "omg.... I love you forever, lets be amish together. They know how to make bread".

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
I love this Focaccia bread. The cheese came out a bit darker than I would have liked, but I am pretty sure thats my fault, lol. The recipe was YUMMY, and I would DEFINITELY be making it again.
