Coconut Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2003
This is also known as "Rave Reviews Coconut Cake" and is a family favorite. We had it for my grandmother's 76th birthday 2 days ago. (This is the ONLY cake she has requested for decades...) There were only 1-2 slices left and we were celebrating 3 birthdays with 3 different cakes. This is an incredible cake.

Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2003
I had never made a homemade frosting for my sugar cookies before. I expected with a name like "Decorator frosting that it would be close to a royal icing or stiffer.It is not. This recipe was very good.I halfed the recipe and there was plenty to frost 3 doz. 4" heart shaped cookies. The texture was creamy smooth and not greasy or gritty. I added 1/4 teaspoon of imitation vanilla butter nut flavoring. It added a tiny bit of color and a nice flavor. My husband and two toddlers love them.Thanks!

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2003
Oh my! These were very good.I love caramel and shortbread(I could personally be happy without the chocolate).I made them for Christmas.The first few were a little tough to get out and got mangled so I had to eat them...(I couldn't present the mutants to my family)They were so rich that even after 10 or so people had sampled them there was still 3/4 of the pan left & I ended up leaving them at my grandmother's house and couldn't remember where my only 8x8 glass pan was. Next time I will cut them & transfer them to a serving/storage container.I think I'll try it with about 1/2 the chocolate on the top.

Absolutely the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2003
The 5 star rating comes from my cookie loving husband. He says they are "rich,dense and buttery, not cakey and light".(Just like he likes them) He didn't mind that they were flat. I added 1/2 cup of toffee pieces (Skor)& used Ghiradelli Double chocolate chips which may have influenced the finished product.I could taste the salt and baking soda.I froze some of the dough and it was good mixed in with vanilla ice cream but I think I will continue my hunt for my "perfect" cookie.

Broccoli Salad I

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2003
I made this version yesterday- omitting the sunflower seeds. I tried Alyson's Broccoli Salad from this site for Christmas dinner and liked it better. This recipe has too much sugar for my taste and I prefer the milder flavor of the white vinegar over the red. Plus for some reason the green onions were a little overpowering.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2003
A very good cold broccoli salad. It is very close to what I sampled at a party during the holidays. A definite keeper.I omitted the sunflower seeds (forgot to buy them). I tried another version- Broccoli Salad from Jennifer Stephens but prefer this one.
