Walnut Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2004
I have only tried this once and I used it with a tripleberry pie filling (I would not suggest this crust for that). It is a great crust and I want to use it again with a chocolate pie filling or maybe even apple... I like the nuts!

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2002
I have made similar cakes like this before. The butterscotch pudding does give it a darker color and adds a little bit compared to all vanilla. When it says to pour half the cake mix in and then half the cinammon mixture in, I made four total layers. This makes the cinammon and sugar layer thinner and not over powering. I only used about 3/4 of the mixture and it was plenty sweet.

Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2002
I made these for a group of teenage girls who all said that these were great. My friend who helped me make them even wanted this recipe to replace here usual recipe. I thought they were pretty good. But unfortunatly I really like a more buttery falvored cookie than these were. I did use butter flavored crisco but it didn't take the lack of butter away. These cookies are nice and soft. I do like having more brown sugar than white sugar, I like the flavor better. When I make these again I will probably modify it a bit and add both shortening and butter (only a 1/3 or 1/4 of what it calls for will be butter until I find the right mix for me) this will hopefully give me the butter flavor I like and still keep them softness that I also like. I have now made it with regular crisco, the flavor isn't all that. Plus make sure the crisco hasn't be sitting around the house too long, that will make the flavor even worse!!!

White Chocolate Blondies

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2002
I had a get together and I made five different desserts (White chocolate Blondies, Autumn Cheescake, Caramel Brownies II, Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Cinnamon Coffee Cake II). This one was the big hit. I even had people ask me for the recipe, even email me later to get it from me. It isn't very sweet and the mixture of the two chocolates is very nice. I did use the bitter sweet chocolate and added extra. It is very easy to make. I used the microwave versus the double boiler to melt the chocolate. NO Problems.

Yellow Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2003
This cake is more like a sponge cake. I think I would make it again but I would need to add some flavor to it. I think I probably would add some vanilla and either some orange or lemon zest or juice to it and reduce the amount of water to make up for the juice I add to it.

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
This was fantastic. I made it for a church brunch and everyone loved it and many people asked for the recipe. The butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup (I used dark since that is what I had on hand) made it so yummy. It reminded me of those gooey carment rolls with that stuff on top. I would recommend flipping the french toast over both while it is sitting overnight and 20 minutes into baking it.

Matzo Apple Kugel

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
This is a keeper. I did use matzo farfall instead of breaking up the matzah. Everyone at the seder liked it and now this will be the recipe I keep!

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2004
I am not overly impressed. I only used 3 cups of powdered sugar and it still was too sugary and not enough cream cheese. I like cream cheese frosting to taste like cream cheese and not powdered sugar. I am going to keep looking for a good cream cheese frosting recipe.

Weekend Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
This was a very easy recipe to modify. I chose this recipe because I like the idea of crescent rolls on the bottom. Unfortunatly it was too soggy to really appreciate the taste of the cresent rolls. Next time I would try and baking the crescent rolls a little to see if that helps with it not being so soggy or else adding some on top and sides of the dish (we like crescent rolls). I varried this 5 different ways to allow for all sorts of different taste buds. Just use your imagination it should work!!!

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2005
This was a great meal, everyone loved it and even wanted to see the recipe. The sauce for me was not runny but you definatly have to let it boil for a long time to get it thickened (that could be due to my substitutions!). I followed some of the others recommendations. I doubled the sauce (It could have even used more). I used 1 % milk (2 cups) and 2 tsp of cornstarch instead of heavy cream. Plus I did not have sundried tomatoes in the house so, I cut up tomatoes (3 roma) and cooked them in the oven for 20 minutes (I checked them every 5 minutes and mixed them around). Plus, I added fresh mushrooms, fresh spinach, and scallions to it (cooked seperatly after the chicken and then added it to the chicken). My husband loved it and wants me to added it as a regular dish. Next time I make it I will add a little wine to the sauce and parmasan cheese.

Challah I

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2004
It was good not great. For me it seems like it is missing something (my memory of good challa was at my grandma's house), I am not sure what! Cook time was only 20 minutes. When I make it again I think I will add a bit more honey and an extra egg. But, it is very easy to make. Me and my twin 3 year olds were able to make it with no problems....I made it again with an extra egg in the dough and it was wonderful....

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
We did a taste test this Thanksgiving. I used this recipe "Irrisistable pecan pie" and a good local bakery. This was by far the least favorite of them all. It was more custardy than the rest. Plus I did add extra pecans and it was still not enough. It is a pecan pie!!! If you can not have corn syrup then I could see why you would use this recipe. But if you have no problems with it stick with the other recipes...

Chocolate Bar Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
This is a nice basic chocolate recipe. I have used similar over the years and just needed the basic portions of chocolate to cream. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips (24 oz) and 1 cup heavy whipping cream and a little vanilla. I did not use the coffee, I am sure it would taste great with it but with company I wasn't sure if everyone liked coffee. And I didn't add the extra surar. We dipped pound cake, strawberries, marshmellows, banannas, apples, and pretzels (not a big winner). If your fondue winds up a little thick add a little heavy whipping cream and thin it to the consistancy you like. If it is too thin add more chocolate!!!

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2002
I wasn't overly impressed but my guests seemed to have liked it along with my husband (Only 2 pieces left). I made a total of five different desserts ( Autumn cheescake, chocolate chip cookies, caramel brownies II, Cinnamon Coffee Cake II, and White chocolate blondies (everyones favorite that night)). The problems I ran into is I didn't know how long to cook it and if it was done. I ended up cooking it for 70 minutes and then put it in the refridge for the next day. The middle was still runny when I cut into it the next day. But the flavor was nice. I did end up using 1 extra cream cheese, 1 extra egg, 1/4 cup extra sugar, and vanilla. Plus I did put a layer on top of the crust and also on top of the cream cheese part. Plus I mixed some in with the cheese cake mixture. The crust was very easy to do. I never have made a crust like this. Don't let that intimidate you from making this it took 2 minutes!!!! The hardest part was peeling and cutting the apples, which when it is all done the apples are crisp (if you don't like crisp apples in your cheese cake you may want to cook them before putting them in your cake). So, very easy to make. Putting the pan of water in when cooking made it so it didn't crack. The nice thing about this cheesecake is that it wasn't overly sweet. For me it was just right in the sweetness area. Since everyone seemed to like this cheesecake, I would make it again!
