French Apple Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2004
I am so surprised how much I liked this. I have never made bread pudding, and the apples gave it a nice touch. (I left out the raisins, as I was not in the mood for them.) I did make a sauce for it out of brown sugar, butter, and milk (and a little condensed milk that I had left over due to scaling the recipe to fit the amount of bread I had onhand.) In any case, this is a great recipe. Thanks!

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2004
These made very good muffins. The only thing I changed was halving the recipe, using whole wheat flour for 1/3 of the flour, and adding coconut. I will leave out the raisins next time. Half of the recipe made a dozen cupcake sized muffins. I can't say it was the best I ever had, but it was VERY good. (I'm still searching for a recipe that comes close to the best I ever had.)

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2005
These cookies came out AWESOME! And were EASY! After I mixed the ingredients & it was crumbly, my daughter and I washed our hands GOOD and played with the dough. It came out great. Nice and soft. She patted some down and used cookie cutters to make a few. I made logs out of the rest. We wrapped both (logs & cut outs) in waxed paper & set in the freezer for awhile. (We played a board game.) Then I sliced a log and put them with the cut outs on a baking sheet and baked them. They came out PERFECT! Her shapes stayed shapes and tasted great!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2006
This is a tried and true recipe for me. It comes out great every time. The only thing I do differently is hold off on the ginger and double the rest of the spices. (Sometimes I even add a tsp of applepiespice.) I like spice in my pumpkin bread. I like to make one pan of muffins/cupcakes and one loaf. Cupcakes take less time. AWESOME every time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2005
This frosting was great on the Easy Sugar Cookie recipe. My little one had fun frosting the cookies! (I used butter instead of shortening, as our family doesn't eat partially hydrogenated oil.)

Pumpkin Chocolate Dessert Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2004
My 5 year old daughter and I made cupcakes from this recipe last night. I accidently left them on the baking rack last night and they are PERFECT this morning. Not dry at all. I did NOT use the pumpkin pie spice and they do NOT taste like pumpkin at all. Just chocolate cupcakes. Thank so much. We love these! (I also substituted a tiny (5oz) can of evaporated milk for the heavy cream. I used a 4oz kids sized applesauce pack and 1/2c butter because it's what I had.)

Gaye's Microwave Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2004
VERY easy to make and came out great. (I liked it the best the next day after it sat at room temp in the plastic zip baggie.) Thanks. I will make definitely this again.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2004
These brownies are AWESOME! It was the first time I made brownies from scratch and they were easy and SO tasty. I made half the recipe and put them in 4 cupcake foils inside of a baking pan. I didn't really pay attention to the timing, I just checked on them until they were the consistency that I like them. They taste really good. A bit heavy on the chocolate side, but great! The frosting was excellent in its own right. I am going to use it for other recipes. Thanks so much!

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2004
This frosting was AWESOME! It's just like the light chocolate frosting my mom made for me when I was a kid. I chose what kind of cake I wanted and it was always yellow cake with frosting that she made that taked EXACTLY like this. Not dark, but nice and light. THANKS! This is a keeper! My new recipe!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: May 22, 2004
I really loved this! I never would have thought of making my own applesauce. I substituted apple pie spice for the cinnamon and used twice as much. I also added a touch of brown sugar towards the end. (Almost as an afterthought.) This was wonderful!

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
I had an abundance of ripe pears from a neighbor's tree and needed something to do with them, so I decided to try this recipe. I didn't think about the juiciness of the pears (that had been cut up in the fridge the previous day) compared to apples that were just cut, so the first time I made it, it was extra moist and had pretty flat tops. (Although my daughter LOVED it that way.) The second time, I added an extra 1/4 cup of flour and a teaspoon of baking powder and they came out PERFECT! My family loves this recipe. It is a keeper. Thanks!

White Chocolate, Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
This recipe is perfect. The ONLY change I made (other than chips) was following the advice of other reviewers to use 1 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp baking soda. Oh my gosh! These are perfect. The first time I made them, I did not use chips at all. The second time, I used chocolate chips. When you take them out, they look a little under done, but after they sit for 5 minutes, they really are perfect. I put them in tupperware overnight and they kept very well for the 2 days they lasted. LOVE these! Thank you!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
This has become my go to recipe for pancakes. My family absolutely loves them. They like them best when I substitute buttermilk for the soured milk and butter. (I leave out the milk, vinegar, and butter and I use buttermilk in its place. ) I do cook mine in butter, though. I like them best when I let the batter sit a bit before using. Ends up fluffiest that way for us. Really great basic recipe. I make these 2 or 3 times a week. (Makes 8 very small pancakes. Serves between 2 and 4 in my family depending on who is eating. )

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
I have made this time and time again and it comes out perfect every time. My entire family loves it! (I don't see how the person could have kept cooking it for 30 minutes without it thickening. I wonder if she left out the cornstarch. When I stir after the 2nd one minute interval,5 minutes total, it starts to thicken and look shiny. I usually stop there, especially if I am refrigerating for a while.)

Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
2 huge bunches of basil and a bunch of garlic were in my CSA share this week, so I used them to make this delicious pesto. (I didn't have nuts, so I left them out.) This was my first time making pesto and it ROCKED! Thank you!

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
When I saw this recipe, it struck a chord as something one of the moms at school baked for a bake sale that FLEW off the table. I decided to try it. OH MY HEAVENS! It was as good as I remembered. THANK YOU!!!

Homemade Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Made this using the exact measurements, but used brown sugar for a more caramel pudding. Also followed another reviewers suggestion of mixing the dry ingredients in the cold pot, adding cold milk and mixing well, then heating. No lumps. Well loved by my daughter, my mom, and me. :)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
Everyone in my family LOVED these cupcakes. I used chocolate cake mix and toll house cookie dough. SO yummy that we didn't even use icing. Will definitely make these again!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
This is my new go to recipe for apple crisp. We all LOVED it. I used whatever apples I happened to have around my house. Because it was not granny smith, I cut down on the white sugar. I followed reviewer advice and tossed the apples with the spice-sugar mixture. Also reduced water to 1/4 cup. Personally, I love oats, so I reduced the flour and added extra oats to the crumble. I can see why this recipe is so well loved. Best apple crisp to ever come out of my kitchen!
