Mother's Applesauce Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
This cake is fabulous! It fills the house with the smells of Fall as it's baking. It's a dense, moist cake; kinda heavy after a big meal. I used 1/2 tsp of cloves because I don't like a strong clove taste. I left out the raisins, dates, and walnuts, and the cake was delicious without them, but I think it would be better with them. Also, based on some of the reviews, I sifted powdered sugar on top just before serving instead of using the icing; it was a perfect topping. My kids started begging for another cake as soon as we finished off the first one!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
I gave this 5 stars after tasting just the meatballs. My young boys are very picky eaters and not only did all 3 of them eat the meatballs (a shock in itself!), but they all wanted seconds and were upset to find none were left (my husband and I had eaten them all). This NEVER happens. I made 2 changes to the original recipe: I used turkey burger instead of ground beef and whole grain Cream of Wheat instead of breadcrumbs (I got the cereal idea from Swedish Meatballs 1 by Jessica). Thanks to other reviewers who mentioned turkey burger gets too dry with breadcrumbs, I used maybe 1/2 cup of cereal instead of 1 cup. I put them in a saucepan with jarred marinara and they were fantastic! No browning, no mess; perfect. Today I'm trying them in the crockpot. I haven't made the sauce yet (did I mention my kids were picky eaters?) but I plan to, and I suspect it will be delicious.

Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Overall I liked this recipe: it's very easy and flavorful, and makes enough to top an entire pie. However, I didn't think it was sweet enough for the banana cream pie I used it on. I did add an additional 1T of powdered sugar and that helped.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
This pie is fabulous! I planned to use whole milk based on reviewer tips but forgot and used 1/2% instead. It might've taken a bit longer to cook, but the filling came out nice and thick. I also followed reviewer advice and didn't bake the pie; I just chilled it after filling the pie shell.

Chocolate Butter-Creme Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
This is the frosting I will use from now on! It's not too sweet and has a light, easily spreadable texture. I did notice, however, that a single batch is not enough to cover the top and sides of a 9x13 cake; but making a second batch and mixing it with the first works great. This is the frosting I've been looking for for ages!

Toasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
I had some leftover french bread so I looked on the site for a quick garlic toast recipe. This recipe is exactly what I was looking for: easy, fast, and tasty! I didn't use the cheese this time, but I will definitely try it in the future!
