Banana Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2005
Good cake! Very moist and delicious. I will definitely make it again. So easy too. I followed the directions exactly and it came out perfect. My only change will be to make less glaze. I just drizzled it and it not only looks pretty but adds great flavor.

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
Fab-u-lous! Best buttercreanm recipe I've ever tried. Didn't change a thing and it came out perfect. Loved how eventhough the cake was refrigerated overnight once it was left at room temp. it softened up again. Will definitely keep onhand to use with other cakes. I used a vanilla bean paste and it didn't change the colour of the frosting, it just added little specks of vanilla thoughout which I like.

Colossal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
I just made these this weekend and boy were they ever good. The recipe made a huge batch. I mixed them with my stand mixer and the batter almost spilled over. I brought a bunch to work and they were gone in seconds. I didn't add chocolate chips because my dog has to be able to eat everything I make, otherwise I get the sad, puppy dog face. They were really good.

One Minute Chocolate Icing

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
I didn't beat it after I blended it. I let it stand at room temperature until it got thicker and then I spread it on the cake. My only issue with it was it felt gritty, like the sugar hadn't dissolved. It's possible I didn't heat it enough.

Cheesy Tuna Mornay

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
A mornay is a cheese sauce. Just thought I'd throw that in.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I used Arborio rice and skim milk this time. The last time I used long grain rice and it didn't come out creamy enough. But this time around, it is super creamy. Smells and tastes delicious.

Baked Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
I gave it a two because it wasn't as expected. It tasted more like scrambled eggs with corn. Even my boyfriend who normally comsumes anything "corn" with exuberance, was a little hesitant with this one. It was easy to prepare though. Just not my favourite corn recipe.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Ok these are awesome! At first when I took them out of the oven, I took a whiff of them and I smelled zucchini and chocolate which was a little disconcerting. I used Chocolate Frosting I, for the frosting because I had used it before and I find it's easy to make and tastes great. I just finished a brownie and you can't taste the zucchini at all, but the fact that I know it's there makes me feel good because not only am I eating a delicious dessert, but I'm getting some more veggies into my diet.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
This was a great recipe. Very easy to make and frost. If I made them again I would cut the frosting in half because I don't like my cupcakes over-frosted. All in all in was a perfect recipe, no changes needed to be made.

Gingerbread Waffles with Hot Chocolate Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I didn't like these at all. I love the taste of gingerbread normally but these were too heavy with the taste of molasses. The batter was heavy too. I could barely finish one because of the heaviness and sweetness, I can only imagine what they'd be like with the chocolate sauce.

Peanut Butter Cookies VI

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
They were super easy to make and just like everyone else suggested I added an extra 1/2 cup of peanut butter. They do stay really soft but I'm not sure whether I like that or not. They are almost too soft. I like a little bit of crispness. I added mini chocolate chips. But overall, good cookie.

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
They were easy to make but I didn't find them to be very outstanding. I didn't have butterscotch chips so I just used chocolate chips. Maybe that's the reason they didn't taste nearly as good as expected. Also the marshmellows melted completely and I was expecting them to remain more in tact.

Dark Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
So so so easy! Awesome one-bowl chocolate cake. And so chocolatey. The coffee really brings out the taste of chocolate. I didn't have distilled white vinegar so I used white wine vinegar and it worked out fine. Will definitely make it again.

Brownie Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
I only gave it 4 stars because it seemed a little grainy but after reading the other reviews, I see that confectioner's sugar can be used too. I'll try that next time. The frosting is very sweet so I may use less sugar next time. I was skeptical at first because it seemed thin but after pouring it on the warm cake, it set up really quickly and really well. All in all, it was fast and easy and just what I was looking for.

Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
I'm not a vegan, I just made these because they seemed easy. That they were. They've been cooling for a while and they seemed to have stuck to the pan. There was no mention of greasing the pan and I assumed with all the oil that I wouldn't have to worry about. It may just be that they're still a little warm though so we'll see. I cut down on a sugar a bit, I put in about 1 3/4 cups and they're still sweeter than I like. The seem to taste alright, certainly not the best I've made, but ok.

Strawberry Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
These were good. Very tender and moist. The only changes I made was using low-fat buttermilk because it's all I had, using dried strawberries and adding frozen blueberries. They were prepared really quickly which I like, they were ready to bake in the time it took for my over to pre-heat.

Strawnana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
I'm giving this a 5 based on smell and ease of preparation. I just took it out of the oven and it's too hot to taste. I think next time I will use applesauce in the place of the oil because that's alot of oil. Also I suggest watching the baking process closely because it was cooked after 45 mins.

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
I think I may have been off the measurements, because I mostly eye-balled it. They are so good and so easy to make but I truly think my pot will be soaking for a month after making these.

Baked Oatmeal Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
I can only give this recipe a 3 and that's mainly for taste. These taste great but they crumbled completely. I cut them into squares but when I tried to get one out of the pan, they fell apart and that was very disappointing.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
The appeared promising in the beginning but they were like bricks when they came out of the oven. Will never make them again. Too dry and tasteless.
