Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
This is my all-time favorite Pumpkin Bread recipe! It's the best, hands-down!! I always bake mine in a bundt pan rather than the 3 loaf pans. Last night I made it with with a twist... I added a cream cheese layer and a glaze. It was a hit! I added this cream cheese layer in the middle and swirled a little with a knife: 8oz softened cream cheese, 1 egg, 3/4 cup 10x sugar, 1 tsp vanilla. I baked it for about 70 minutes? Started checking it at 50 minutes. It's BIG! Glazed it with a cream cheese glaze: 4oz softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup 10x sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 3 to 4 tbsp milk to reach the right consistency. And sprinkled it with a little bit of cinnamon. YUM! None of this is necessary because the recipe is AMAZING just the way it is... but this a fun variation to play with :)

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2012
The humble pumpkin "bar" that exceeded my expectations! Yum! I mean YUM! YUM! YUM! I followed the recipe but baked in a 9x13 (I wanted some volume!). I also frosted my bars when they were still warm so that the frosting would melt down into them a little bit. I waited to cut them until they were cool. WOW. These are so moist, fluffy, and delicious.

Zucchini Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
I'm sold!! This is fabulous. I was so excited to trick my family (hehe)... I peeled and chopped most discreetly and threw away all evidence. Husband even came to check out what I was cooking up in the pan and made some comment about cooked apples and went on with what he was doing... I chucked inside. Soon the house filled with the best Apple Cobbler aroma :) and everyone started to get excited (*snicker*)! I followed this recipe to a tee, but baked it in a 9x13. RAVE reviews, hot from oven and reheated. I wish you could've been here when I told them "the big secret" ;) thank you for a great recipe and the most excellent entertainment... I had so much fun :D and... they asked for seconds!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Fabulous! Honestly, I don't quite understand how this sets up so beautifully without eggs or some kind of binder (maybe there is something in sweetened condensed milk?)... I made 2 of these last week while we were at the beach. Thumbs up all around!! Rich, smooth and delish! A keeper :) I used premade crust because I was on vacation and lazy, but next time I will make my own. I used a shortbread crust for one and graham cracker for the other. Both we wonderful. I wonder how these would be frozen?

The Best Chocolate Cake You Ever Ate

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
I'm a little confused about this cake. We love it. Very moist and delicious, but nothing like a chocolate cake. I wish it wasn't called a chocolate cake because that's the only thing throwing me off... it's like taking a sip of tea when you think you're going to have a sip of Dr. Pepper... they're both good but it's strange when you think you're going to taste one thing and it's something totally different when you sip it. Much more like a spice type cake. But like I said, very good. The only change I made was to leave out the pecans. I was worried while it was cooking because it looks very strange. I had to bake mine 30-35 minutes at 375 in a glass 9x13. Overall: not the prettiest cake, not a chocolate cake to me, but all in all a yummy cake that I would make again (but I'll have to change the name because my tastebuds and my mind are conflicting)

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I had fun making and serving this recipe. It was easy and turned out beautifully. I added garlic powder and red pepper to the cracker mix and also dredged the chicken in flour before the egg. I deep fried these (4 at a time) at 350 degrees for 15 minutes and they were perfectly done. Thanks for a new recipe!! This one is a keeper!

Cabbage on the Grill

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
I love this! I was looking for a way to use some cabbage from the garden for our 4th of July cookout and came across this recipe... boy am I glad I did! Yummy AND easy (I showed my son how to make 1 and he had fun doing the rest on his own)! This one it a keeper. Only thing I did different was to cut the cabbage in eighths instead of fourths. Thank you for a great recipe!

Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
These are the best! Great recipe of things you always have on hand. I followed the recipe exact. I've made these several time and they always turn out just as good as the first time. My only gripe would be that they are small. I've considered making just one log but haven't tried that that. These are great to make when you're hosting a party with a bunch of ladies. Impressive and delish!

Hamburger Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
I surprised my son at his 13th Birthday Cookout with this cake. I wasn't sure that I could pull it off because I can bake a great cake but I'm not the most confident decorator... I did it!! I took the advice of another reviewer and frosted it with Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting (perfect color, and YUM!) and I also baked the "bun" in a 3 quart casserole dish (for about an hour on 325)then cut it to form the top/bottom bun. Forming the candies into veggies was much easier than I thought it was going to be. I also made "french fries" by cutting cake in strips and icing it with "ketchup". FUN! Thanks for the recipe!

Cream of Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
My first Coconut Cake. I felt like I was cheating with the cake mix, but I made this as a layer cake for my mom for Christmas. It turned out AWESOME! She said it was even better the next day. I used "Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting" Submitted by Tom on this website (LOVE this icing for many, many cakes) and I added the remaining cream of coconut to it. De-Lish! Oh, by the way, cream of coconut is found in the mixed drink section of the grocery store. :o) You should try this cake, you won't be disappointed!

French Breakfast Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
These are perfect... not too sweet, super simple! I made them in a mini-muffin tin and baked them for 10 minutes. I brushed the butter on with a pastry brush and sprinked the cinnamon-sugar mixture over them (easy, easy!). These should be called Snickerdoodle Muffins :o)
