Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2011
I made these Golden Yam Brownies this afternoon and they were heavenly! Unfortunately, I did not have fresh yams, so I used two cups of mashed candied yams, and, along with the addition of some pumpkin pie spice, this was the only alteration I made to the recipe. I found it to be a bit overwhelmingly sweet, but my mom, who admits that she is quite the sugar-addict, thought it was just perfect. I also didn't think that the texture was very much like that of a brownie (maybe more like a baked custard/pudding???) as it was a bit too moist for a brownie, and, although set, was quite wet. I'm guessing this happened because I used canned yams? I still enjoyed this recipe quite a bit, and will definitely be trying it again! I would like to attempt it with fresh yams, but, I have to admit, am a huge fan of the custard-like consistency yielded by the canned yams! After baking this, my whole kitchen smells just like the holidays! This is a wonderful dish for fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or just a very decadent dessert for those with a sweet tooth! Highly recommended!

Cinnamon Coffee Puffs

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
I was hesitant to try such a simple recipe...I really didn't think it would turn out to be so flavorful and delicious! I added some allspice and cinnamon in addition to the nutmeg in the puff, and they turned out nice and spicy and flavorful. I made them in a mini-muffin (tart) tin, and only coated the tops with the butter-cinnamon mixture. Thank you so much, Sharon, for sharing this easy, yummy recipe! My family snacked on them at breakfast, and then as snacks throughout the day. I will definitely be making these again!

Cauliflower-Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
I made this for dinner yesterday, and it was a huge hit! I would have given it five stars, except for the fact that the seasoning was WAY off--without a few modifications, this would have been very bland (but this is a great starter recipe, as long as you taste and season as you go). We didn't have cauliflower, so I used a package of frozen vegetables in a steam bag (including broccoli, lima beans, carrots, and celery), steamed it in the microwave, and added it to the soup with the cheese. I increased the amount of cheese to include a mixture of Sharp Cheddar:Monterey Jack at a ratio of 2:3. The Monterey Jack REALLY made the recipe! I subbed in chicken stock for the water, and boiled some frozen hashbrown cube-cut potatoes and frozen onion, which I then added to the roux, along with the steamed veggies and cheese. The whole recipe took less than a half hour to make, and still tasted like a full, flavorful soup that had been simmering all day! I did have to add massive amounts of kosher salt, some garlic and onion powder, and a dash of oregano and terragon in order to round out the flavor profile. The carrots gave the soup a beautiful hint of color, and the lima beans added a nice textural contrast. It was a lovely soup! Thanks so much for such a great starter to a cheese soup!!!

Apple Raisin French Toast Strata

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
I made this as a Mother's Day brunch, and it turned out fantastic! I didn't have cinnamon raisin bread on hand, so I just used white sandwhich bread. Like other reviewers mentioned, I spread the bread with the cream cheese (which I had mixed with a tsp of vanilla, some cinnamon and allspice) and laid the slices in the casserole dish instead of cubing the bread and sprinkling it with the cream cheese. I also doubled the amount of apples, and coated them with a little cinnamon and sugar before adding them. I followed the rest of the recipe to the "T," and we all loved it! My mom said it was the best part of her Mother's Day...definitely a keeper!
