Whipped Cream Mousse Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2014
I'm a fan of reviewing recipes as exactly stated, so I will say that this is an amazing and easy "frosting." I get so tired of making buttercreams because of the overload of sugar and its density. Today was my second time making this and I added orange extract (could also squeeze an orange and grate the peel in too) and it gave it an extra hint of flavor. Yummy!!

Slow Cooker Ham with Pineapple

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
I thought this had a strange aftertaste. I'm sure that this isn't the recipe but the cut of ham, but mine was ridiculously salty.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
Obviously I must have done something wrong because these did not turn out. The batter was actually dry.. no moisture at all. I grated the zucchini on the second smallest size (the one you hold).. I can't imagine that because the zucchini shreds weren't small enough that the brownie came out this bad. IT didn't rise (yes my b.soda is good) and it's all lumpy and grainy??? I don't understand.. I'm not a beginner baker either.

Orange Cranberry Drops

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
You might as well bake cranberry bread because that is what the consistency of this cookie is like. It baked more like a muffin than a cookie. Ok taste, nothing spectacular. I made some orange icing for the top that made them tastier.

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
YUMM-O! When I first looked at this recipe, it didn't look like anything special. But, wow it's so delicious! The only things I did differently were add garlic to the onion, and I did half creamed corn (which I've never bought in my life!) Don't tell anyone there are green chiles in this , and they'll be none the wiser, but they'll be asking you what that special kick is !

Apple Hermits

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
I made an entire batch yesterday and they are GONE today! I admit, I ate most of them but my 2 year old helped. I am giving this 4 stars because I really think it needs a 2nd egg (which I added). The batter was really dry!! I also recommend making sure you dice your apples pretty fine, mine were a little too big. I put in pecans and did not add raisins. No icing either. I substituted half whole wheat flour, so I wasn't guilty feeding these to my daughter. I think next time I'm going to add some ginger!

Melt In Your Mouth Blueberry Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
I am giving it a 4 because without the changes I made, I don't think it would have been as yummy. I added a heaping handful of brown sugar to the butter/sugar mix..added extra vanilla and a dash of almond extract (totally transformed the flavor of the cake in my opinion) , and also added a few splashes of half and half bc I didnt want the cake to be too dry. I used frozen blueberries and just let them sit in cool water for a while and patted them dry before adding the flour. The cake is SO yummy, especially after adding a little cinnamon to the sugar topping. It created this delicious hard shell on the top. I have a feeling this cake will be even yummier tomorrow!!

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Oh.my.goodness. If you are a coconut lover, this is absolute heaven. I only did two small things different. 1) I added half teaspoon of coconut extract, half teaspoon vanilla. 2) I shaved some frozen chocolate on the top. Even without these additions, this pie would have still been great. Oh, and by the way, if it's possible-this is even better the next day. YUMMO !

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
The flavor was spot on for this pie. However, mine didn't turn out right. I had never made a meringue before, so for me the instructions were not detailed enough. I wasn't sure how long to boil the filling for. But, in the end, the pie was runny and soggy. So, I'm not sure if i cooked it too long or not long enough ? Also, I used a hand mixer for the egg whites, and I seriously beat it for at least twenty minutes. I'm going to have to throw it out. Too bad bc I can tell it's a tasty pie.

Strawnana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
Really yummy!!!! Very easy to make. I didn't measure my strawberries bc I know I didn't have enough.. so mine isnt overly strawberry tasting, but still good. I added a little bit of squeezed orange juice from the orange and added about a half teaspoon of orange extract. I also did half whole wheat flour and added 1 motts strawberry applesauce cup (lessened the oil by that much). Added a few white choc chips to some of them and yumm-o !! Bake them 25 mins or so to make them muffins!

White Chocolate Fruit Tart

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
Don't get me wrong, this is definately yummy... But, it's a fruit pizza with a white chocolate twist. I don't think, as other reviewers stated, that this was the "best thing ever." I used a pie pan and i definately didn't need all of the crust (which was the best part-a basic shortbread).

German Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
we must have done something wrong. The potatoes didnt sit out for more than a couple mins before we mixed it in. i cant explain the taste but it was not good. but bc of all these good reviews, maybe something went wrong at our house.

New York Cheesecake III

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I HIGHLY recommend making this about 2-3 days before you plan on serving it. I made it the day before my halloween party, and it was just ok. It didnt have that "bite" i was craving. But, boy, 2 days later, its fabulous!!! And even though graham cracker crust would have been yummy, the shortbread gives it a great texture. I did add about 1/4 cup of sour cream, and lessened the cream by just a little. and i added a few squirts of lemon juice. excellent!!!
