Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
This is the sweet dough I will be using for all my cinnamon buns, monkey breads and sticky buns from now on. It comes up lightly sweet and soft, very delicious.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
Very good Punch. Most non-alcoholic punches remind me of kiddie birthday parties but this one doesn't. I used the entire recipe and it filled my punch bowl. Had hardly any left at a party with many other drinks available.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
Great dough recipe. I brush the rolled out dough with melted butter -too much buter will make the filling run out excessively. Next time I may use more yolks and less whole egg in the dough to make it richer. Very tasty.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
Good basic recipe..very moist. I found the muffins to be a touch too sweet so next time I make it I am reducing sugar to 1/2 cup in the batter. Also I used less butter in the topping --just enough to make it crumbly and stick to itself when squeezed in the palm of the hand (that is a bakers trick for testing perfect strusel toppings)Plus had topping left over which I froze for another use.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
Perfect chewy granola bars. This is a flexible recipe and I have made it several ways. I substituted honey for the corn syrup--I found that they are plenty sweet and don't need any additional sugar or honey as some reviewers have suggested. Quantites in the recipe work great. I add almonds and dried blueberries and flax seeds about a half a cup of each instead of raisins. Tip: Mix well and after flattening in pan (I use a 1/2 sheet pan with a small lip with parchment in bottom)roll over it with a rolling pin.

Jewish Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
Overall taste was very good-nice vanilla flavor to the cake and apples and cinnamon were good sweetness--could have been a bit more apples maybe. My cake (even though I used a rather smallish bundt pan)took a while to bake fully and had a thick crust on the outside--not burned, but a crunchy brown exterior that I don't care for-- it's been my experience so far with tradtional apple cake recipes for the outside to be 'crusty' and I was hoping this one would be different.

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
Great base recipe. I have made this a lemon cake by follwing the instructions as written and adding lemon zest. When I want the orange cake I use orange extract in place of the lemon and vanilla pudding --plus I pureed a can of mandarin oranges and used them in place of the juice. Comes out really good.

Olive Cheese Nuggets

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
You have to like olives to love these and don't over bake them. When they just turn golden on the bottom they are done. I added cayenne pepper in place of some of the paprika (my mother in law makes these and told me she uses cayenne) and my second batch got a little more cheese since I was grating what was left I just threw it in--maybe an extra 1/4 cup and they were the best ones. These are the best nibble/snack item to make when having drinks or company. Good warm or room temp.

Original Irish Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
This is an excellent recipe--being a baker and knowing the strength of almond extract I took the recommendation to use 1/2 tsp. And also used half and half in place of cream. Came out perfect.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
just as described. Perfect big fluffy biscuits, which stayed fresh zip lock bagged for 2 days after making--amazing. I will use this recipe from now on for biscuits.
