Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
I have made this recipe 3 times now. These taste great but there are issues with the recipe. 1st of all, double the carmel and 2nd of all the instruction to put the chocolate in the microwave has NEVER worked for me. It turns out dry and crumbly. I always end up melting even more chocolate over the stove, adding butter to make it smooth and pourable.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
This is a good, standard sugar cookie recipe. Make sure to roll them a little thick. They burn easy.

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
This pie is amazing. I have been making it for years and the only thing I change is that I add a full teaspoon of cinnamon in the apple mixture. This pie even won me $100 in a bake off :)

Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
This is not as easy as it looks! The recipe is not really thorough enough. It would be helpful to know that this cake needs to be frozen over night! It tasted fine but I made this cake for guests and used a box chocolate cake. I didn't have a 9x13 pan but I also wanted to layer the cake and ice cream so I used 2 loaf pans and spit the cake batter in 1/2. Then, I used a large slice of the ice cream to place between the cakes. THat part was great. THe ice cream was frozen fine but when I went to ice it about 2 hours later (after being in the freezer), the ice cream was mushy. I still managed to ice it ok thinking it would freeze solid soon, but, in another 2 hours when I cut into it, it was still mushy. The next morning, the remainer of the cake frozen perfectly. My freezer isn't abnormally warm or anything. So, the moral of this story is: make the cake a day ahead of time and freeze it overnight!!!!

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
I found a bread maker in my boyfriend's pantry and I have never used one before. This bread was not only simple to make but it was wonderful and fluffy. A very good basic white that my guests loved! I will use it again!
