Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
I followed the suggestions that others made: used cake flour, put in 50% more cocoa (I used dark cocoa) and used cold coffee in place of 1/2 the water. Turned out great!!! Oh- I also added chocolate chips, but I don't think it needed them. Although my daughter has an egg allergy that prompted me to look for an egg-free recipe, I've had 3 people ask me for the recipe that don't need to worry about eliminating eggs!

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
I've made this twice now and both times it got rave reviews! Both times I used the hard lady fingers. The first time I dipped them in a coffee/kahluah mixture and they came out soggy. The second time I brushed the mixture on the hard lady fingers until they were well covered and it was PERFECT! I even had a friend who's not big on tirimisu ask for the recipe! A few notes on the recipe- I reduced the sugar by almost 1/2 and it was plenty sweet. I also used a 2:1 coffee/kahluah mixture for brushing the lady fingers. For the reviewer who was concerned about possible raw eggs (during pregnancy), I used a food thermometer and made sure the yolks reached 160 degrees before removing from the heat.

Candy Bar Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
Very Good! I made it with a few extra caramels as most previous reviews suggested and microwaved after adding the nuts. I used pecans (it's all I had in the house) and everyone LOVED it! The only criticism is that the bottom fudge part is a little soft for fudge and tastes a little more like a frosting- it works well for the candy bar effect, though!

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
Just as good as the Crazy Cake recipe, but easier and a little sweeter. Everyone who tastes this loves it and can't believe it's vegan!

Worth the work! This is a very tasty recipe, but I will add more cinnamon next time.

Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
These were good and pretty easy to make, but I could taste the cake mix and it made the rolls taste artificial. I may make these again, but I'll keep looking for another recipe to call my own.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
Great recipe! An easy recipe to tailor to your own tastes. I followed another reviewers suggestion that it basic ratio of 3 cups oats to 3 to 3 1/2 cups mix of nuts, dried fruit, and chips. I also omitted the butter and used fat free sweetened condensed milk. They came out awesome and I've already made them 3 times! To keep them from sticking to the pan or my hands, I lined the 9x13 pan with parchment paper then covered my hand with a plastic bag put a few drops of oil on the bag and pressed the granola in pan using the plastic bag- worked great!!

Candy Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
OH MY GOSH!!!! THESE ARE SOOOOO GOOD! When they come out of the oven I can't stop eating them! The only thing I found is that the recipe says it only takes 15 minutes, but mine took almost 45 min. with me stirring every 5-10 before they were no longer sticky.

Portobello Pot Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
I made this recipe for a Vegetarian friend- she loved it! Made it with a whole wheat pie crust and it was great! It had a little too much onion for my taste, but my friend didn't think there was too much at all.

Canned Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
used this for a cupcake filling, so I scaled it to 4 servings and diced the apples (I used 1 granny smith and 1 gala). I omitted the food dye, but followed the rest exactly- PERFECT! The amount was perfect for 14 cupcakes (made from Applesace Cake IV by Corwynn- this site) and the taste was just what I was looking for! Can't wait to use this in the fall for canning!

Applesauce Cake IV

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
Can't give this a 5 because I didn't follow exactly, but it's a great recipe- love it! I mixed all the dry ingredients together (no raisins), added 1 tbsp lemon juice, then the applesause and 1/2 cup canola oil. Mixed together and made 14 cupcakes (baked at 350 for 25 min). I LOVED the taste. I added the spice amounts as indicated and thought it was perfect! I've made this a second time and added the chopped raisins. The addition of the chopped raisins really changes the flavor of the cake. I feel like the raisin flavor overpowers all the spices in the cake and that may be why a lot of reviewers felt it needed more spice. I'll keep this as a go-to recipe, but won't be adding raisins again.

Soft Mahi Mahi Tacos with Ginger-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2012
This was a great recipe! I can't give it 5 stars because I changed some things.... I couldn't get fresh mahi mahi, so I subbed tilapia. I used plain yogurt instead of the sour cream (hubby hates sour cream) and I omitted the jalepeno and cilantro. The flavors of the fruits and avacado paired nicely with the fish and the ginger/lime flavors of the dressing. This is a recipe I will make again!

Pope's Valentine Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
This is the perfect no-egg "sugar cookie" recipe! It's a little like a shortbread cookie, but just the right amount of sweet. It works VERY well with cookie cutters (doesn't spread out or puff up too much). My little ones love them and my husband thinks they're not bad for a cookie without chocolate chips!

Cookie Press Shortbread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
Hard to work with the press and tastes pretty bland, too. I won't be using this recipe again.

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
I liked the flavors of this bread and the tartness the fresh cranberries added. I omitted the walnuts and the orange peel. I also used egg replacer and canola oil instead of butter. I also added some nutmeg.

Yellow Cake Made from Scratch

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2012
I followed the directions for this cake exactly. The cake tasted fine. It was a little dense (which was not a problem) But it stuck horribly to my pan! I had to "glue" it together with icing. The end result was okay, but I won't be using this for a cake again.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
This cake came out very good. I changed a few things- used canola oil instead of butter (I was out). I needed to replace the egg because of an allergy, so I used 1/4 cup applesauce mixed with 1 teaspoon of baking powder, set aside to activate and then added when the egg was supposed to be added. I followed one reviewer's suggestion of using a cup of hot chai tea instead of plain hot water. The cake only baked for 45 minutes and that was almost too long. Nice flavor and came up nice and spongy- in my opinion, the perfect cake texture! Tasted great warm with vanilla ice cream!

Italian Biscotti

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
I cut the recipe in half, but followed it with all the ingredients as listed. I'm not a big anise fan, but the flavor is not overwhelming and helps to create a very authentic biscotti. I did use my stand mixer instead of kneading by hand. The cook times were a bit long, even for the smaller versions I made, so they might go long for the standard size biscotti. I will make this recipe again.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
This cake turned out really good, but I didn't follow the recipe exactly (so I can't give it 5 stars). I combined a few reviewers suggestions... Cream the butter and sugar VERY well (5-8 min in stand mixer), scraping down occasionally. Beat in each egg VERY well (about 3 min. each). Add 1 tsp honey. Mix well. Alternate flour mixture and milk (used 3/4 cup) until well combined. Add 2 Tbsp. vanilla extract. Batter will be very light and fluffy.
