Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
Wow. Unbelievable. I tend to like it sweeter, so I took the suggestions of other reviewers by making the following revisions: upped the brown sugar to 1 cup Added: 1/2 t cinammon 1/4 t nutmeg 1 t vanilla Streusel topping: 1/4 c brown sugar, 1/4 t cinammon, 1 T butter Also, I mashed 2 c of bananas and chopped up 1/2 c of bananas for extra texture. LOOKS fabulous too! Good luck to all, and thanks to the OP for this great tasty recipe!

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
GREAT AND EASY! I did use the tips of other reviewers by using greased disposable pans. To those with a candy thermometer, the sugar mixture should be at the "soft-ball stage" or 230 degrees. Make sure you start timing the three minutes at a full rolling boil, not before. :) Other than than, perfection! :)

"Zuccotto" Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
Holy smokes! Quite honestly, the most impressive cupcake I've ever eaten! Two people I used as taste-testers thought they were "professional" cupcakes...and demanded to know where I got them. (I LURVE that!) Now the downside..they are a PITA to make. However, it's worth the trouble for the bragging rights. :) I followed the directions to a T, although I made the actual "cake" part the day before, as well as the chopping, so I could streamline filling/topping/eating. As another reviewer posted, when piping in the whipped cream filling, it's best to use a regular storage bag rather than a pastry bag due to the chunky filling. The cream cheese and butter NEED to be at room temp or the white chocolate mixture will start to solidify. I used a previous poster's suggestion to make a mini trifle using the leftover cupcake/other mixtures. Plenty of leftover whipped filling and frosting...if you want to do the trifle you'll need a bit more ganache. I feel that the frosting needs something...not quite sure what..but overall, the textures coming together are fabulous...so 9.9 stars instead of 10. Thanks for sharing, Kayla, and thanks for all the detailed instructions! :)

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
Awesome cake! Per other reviewers, I made the following modifications: 1 c each brown and white sugar, added 1 extra t of cinammon and 1 t vanilla, and added 1/2 t of nutmeg, 1/4 t cloves, and 8 oz crushed pineapple, drained. I also reduced oil to 3/4 c and added 1/2 c applesauce. I mistakenly added an extra cup of carrots, but love it this way as well. :) The frosting only needed 3 1/2 c of conf sugar, and one reviewer made an excellent modification of adding 2 T lime juice to the frosting to bring out the sweetness. Fab job!

Great! I left out the olive oil, but kept everything spot-on! Doesn't take a long time to reduce this, keep an eye on it!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
AWESOME! I used 8 Granny Smith apples, approx 4 1/2 pounds. I also followed the advice of other reviewers: I stirred the sugar mixture in the apples and let sit for approximately 1/2 an hour. I also doubled the crisp recipe and lay some (about a 1/3 of mixture) on the bottom and the rest on the top. Additions: 2 T. of lemon juice and 2T. of vanilla, 1/2 t nutmeg, and decreased water to 1/4c. I increased baking time to an hour, as I like the top to have a bit more crunch. Great recipe!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: May 13, 2007
Great bread! I cut the sugar down to 1/4 c and will be adding more salt to my recipe in the future. PERFECT, great for open-faced sandwiches, grilled cheese, you name it! Wonderful on its own!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
AWESOME cookie! I bought the swirl chips (pb and choc) and instead of chopping up a reeses, pressed a mini-reeses in the middle of each hot cookie! These FLEW off the plates at a Christmas party; everyone talks about this one a week later! :)

Apple Pie in a Brown Paper Bag

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
This is a great recipe, but proportions are wrong for the apples for sure. I cooked it with the 5 pounds, and it took FOREVER to cook, and apples still have a bit of crisp to them. The top layer is great tho. :) Worth tinkering with the recipe.
