Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2014
This cake was a bit dry and blander than I was going for as is. Made it again with a few changes... Use brown sugar, not white. Use hot coffee instead of hot water. Double the spices (but maybe not the cloves, depending on your preferences!). Add 1/2 c. of Greek yogurt or apple sauce for moisture. Bake 50-55 mins instead of 60, just until toothpick comes out clean. The cake was good as written, but exceptional with the above changes! Served with a homemade caramel sauce (butter, cream, sugar, vanilla, salt - easy to find a simple recipe) and perhaps a bit of vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream, takes the cake from incredibly delicious to over-the-top good! I'll be making this again and again once the cooler weather hits.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
SO good. Arguably the best zucchini bread I've ever had! Even the batter was amazing - it took incredible willpower not to eat it all before it baked. A few small changes I made to try to make it slightly healthier... I replaced 3/4 of the oil with applesauce, and halved the amount of sugar the second time I made this. No one noticed a difference, and it was just as moist and delicious. Yum!

Potato Latkes I

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
These were a hit! A teensy bit too eggy for what we were looking for, but overall delicious. I think I'd maybe just cut down the amount of egg slightly next time.

Greens with Cannellini Beans and Pancetta

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
This dish was just okay. It was enjoyable, but somewhat bland. Definitely needed to add some chicken broth for the greens to wilt.

Cranberry Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
Excellent. We used to buy cranberry puddings from Cranberry Creek, but they're very expensive, particularly when including shipping costs! Finding a recipe that actually tops the pudding we fell in love with was amazing! No changes necessary. Make sure to serve with the butter cream sauce!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
This recipe has a fantastic flavour, but is veeery salty. I'd make it again, but would cut down on salt a bit to not take away from the flavour of the spices. We also added a 1/2tsp of amchor powder (dried green mangos - tastes almost citrusy), and it gave a great, slightly sour counterpoint that really brought out the flavour of the other spices. I highly recommend giving it a try, or else squeezing some lemon or lime juice in there!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
I made this with a leftover baguette, and followed the suggestions of others to only use three eggs and 1/2 cup of sugar. I really loved how the bread on top crisped up, but the bread underneath was creamy and sweet, like a bread pudding should be. Delicious!
