Lemon Icing

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
Lovely recipe, fast and easy. I substituted butter for low-fat margarine and replaced the lemon juice with orange concentrate. It's a flavorful icing and was a nice topping to my chocolate cake!

Butter Tarts II

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2004
This is a very simple recipe for something so good! I left out the lemon juice, I thought it might take away from the sweetness I was looking for. I also cut the cooking time in half, that's very important. I started out at 400 for 10 minutes like the original directions suggest, but then I only cooked them for another 10 minutes at 350 instead of 20 to 25. I've had one to eat already, I didn't give it enough time to completely set so the filling was a bit runny still. They need a good hour before the syrup thickens. I had left over pie crust in the freezer from another recipe I worked with over Easter, so all of this came together very quickly. I will make this recipe again, but next time I'll trim my nails first - it was hard to press the crust into the tins without making slits, hehe!

Amazingly simple. Prepare the recipe ahead of time and leave in blender in fridge until it's time to serve. I served these as dessert with guests last night, and had all the fruit pre-sliced. My guests enjoyed making their own, and while they didn't all use the same fruits - they definitely all used the Nutella! I added vanilla and sugar to the recipe for the dessert affect. Extremely easy to prepare and fast to cook, I give this recipe 5 stars.

Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
I think this recipe is super-easy to prepare and the tastiest too! It has the perfect amount of sweetness, I'd compare it to the Breyer's vanilla - it's great on its own or will be a perfect vanilla base for creating your own rocky road mix. I wouldn't change a thing and rated this 5 stars.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
I would not say this cake is to die for, but it's a very easy recipe to impress a crowd of friends. I give it 5 stars because the cake turned out flawless and it was easy to make for the results. However, you can tell it's made from a box and that's what you should expect when you're not baking from scratch - but still deserves 5 stars for a box cake. I did not bake the cake in a bundt pan, instead I went with 3 x 8.5" layers. I used the "Cream Cheese Frosting II" for the icing and it was fabulous. I mixed strawberry jam with the icing to put between the layers, and then I added red food colouring for the piped edging. Also sprinkled chocolate shavings across the top; it presented very well - friends were impressed. I complimented the cake with homemade vanilla ice cream also on this site called "Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream"; it tastes exactly like Breyer's vanilla. The crowd loved the ice cream more than the cake, but that didn't surprise me - the ice cream is extremely tasty. I will try other recipes before making this cake again, but it was certainly perfectly suited for the tonight's birthday party.

Amish Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
The texture of this bread is soft and the crust is not flaky - it's easily the best bread maker recipe I've used. I do like the Portuguese recipe here too but it's too sweet for sandwiches. This recipe makes a great big loaf and is tasty with tuna fish or roast beef. This recipe is a keeper.

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
This is a great recipe, I made it for a potluck gathering and it was a perfect dish for munching throughout the night. I did not change the recipe but we like a thick caramel coating so I made more sauce than it specifies. I also roasted my cashews separately from the popcorn so that they'd be properly coated rather than falling to the bottom of the pan. Using disposable roasting pans is highly recommended!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
An excellent result for very little effort. We had Key Lime Pie in Maraton, FL last month and I couldn't wait to make it at home. This recipe tasted exactly as I remembered. I made the recipe exactly as it's written and although I thought it was perfect, others found it was a bit heavy on the lime so I may reduce that to half a cup next time. Also, a tip for those complaining about sore thumbs from squeezing the limes, warm them in a microwave first. It makes them soft and the juices will flow easily when squeezed. Very easy!

Red Velvet Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
This cake lacks flavor. I substituted shortening for 1 cup of oil, increased sugar to 2 cups, and increased cocoa to 5T. It turned out perfectly but the cake is bland. I don't know why so many people can't work with this frosting, I think it's excellent. Maybe they're not thickening it long enough before removing it from the heat? It's a tasty frosting and compliments the cake nicely. Will use the frosting again but undecided about the cake.
