Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
The ONLY reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because I did not follow it as written. I did go with a lot of the other use suggestions and boy am I glad that I did! And you will too!!! First of all...make TWO coffee flavored cake layers, not one. And use 2 teaspoons of instant coffee or more in each layer. Use very strong coffee for the liquid you brush on. Use about 1.5 tablespoons of coffee liquor and about 3/4 cup strong coffee. I also added about 1/2 teaspoon of instant coffee powder to the marscapone filling. Next time, I would add chopped up chocolate pieces into the filling. But this recipe was AMAZING!!! I made it for Halloween and people are still talking about how good it was!!! This is definitely a keeper recipe.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2013
This is the perfect rice pudding recipe! I have tried many and did not like the outcome. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars and not 5 is because it needed cinnamon, (which I added) and I HIGHLY suggest that you add at least a teaspoon to yours. And since I rate the correct way by rating a recipe how it was written not on what I did to make it 5 stars like some people. But yes this will now be my go to rice pudding recipe!!

Pumpkin Pie Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
This was just soooo incredibly good! Its just as good if not BETTER than pumpkin pie! I made as written and it was just fine for me. I did use fresh nutmeg and added a little extra cinnamon and ginger for flavor and that worked out well. It takes A LOT longer to cook and set the crust, and same problem with the filling. You basically need to double both cooking times just as a starting point. Next time I might double the crust and add more sugar to the filling because although its not too sweet you could make it sweeter if you wanted.......Don't be scared of the filling, when you add the evaporated milk it seems SO thin! Thin like soup.....thats ok! It will reduce and leave a thick rich filling. (Hence why its a 40 min cook time and not 20 as listed)

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
These are really good! I would give it 4.5 stars if possible. Taste like restaurant pancakes! The buttermilk is a must, it cannot be substituted for milk + Vinegar. The right texture can only be attained from the real thing. Use unsalted butter or cut the salt from the main recipe. And no maple syrup tastes as good as the real thing in my opinion but thats up to you....also would be good with a fruit syrup.Watch them close because they can burn very fast because of the sugar in the batter.

Cherry Limeade I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I halfed the recipe, and I used the minute maid limeade and it was awesome! Great way to use up all the opened pop bottles after new years, I had some half flat sprite and it worked great. I added half the jar of cherry juice but I threw the cherries in too!

Honey Mustard Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
This dressing is pretty good....It needs A LOT more mustard. Otherwise, it just tastes like mayo! I suggest about 1-2 T or more of mustard....I too used a mix of dijon and yellow french's mustard ( it gives it a bright yellow color). I also added more honey/sugar like other viewers suggested. It is very runny, so you dont need to use that much on a salad. I also squeezed in a hint of lemon juice. I might make this again, it needs more tweeksing but still a good dressing overall!

Sugar Cookies X

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
This was pretty good.....The flavor is a little dull, and thats after i doubled the vanilla mind you. You really do have to add all the oil, i have no idea why people are saying that u should decrease it! This recipe was just a tad of a letdown....I MAY try it again, but if I did I would top it with frosting or add almond extract to the batter....so in actuality i would give it a 3.5-4 Stars

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2006
This was a good recipe!!! Next time will add more apples but it was still good. You HAVE to add the cinnamon and nutmeg as recommended by another reviewer (1 t cinnamon 1/2 t nutmeg and I added a shake of ground cloves and allspice). It also came out dry so i had to add another 1/4 cup of water to the batter. The topping is way too wet, I ended up adding some more flour to make it thicker. These were the only changes! This is a GREAT autum muffin recipe, to wake up and have this muffin with your coffee, nothing better! YOu can add just about anything to this...and VERY moist YUM!

Caroline's Chocolate Fudge Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
I did not find this sweet at all, there is no way you can use unsweetened chocolate in this recipe. I followed other people's advice by cutting down the milk (you MUST do this)I also used unsalted butter, and I still had to add more sugar, to make it sweeter and thicker. The frosting was not as good as I expected. I would make it again with semisweet chocolate, but we will see.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
these are good. You really need to up the sugar to 3/4-1c, milk to 1=1/4, and oil to 1/2 cup and add vanilla. I really dont think it needs THAT much chocolate so 3/4 is just right, they come out moist and tasty

Jalapeno Chicken II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
I thought this was an AWESOME recipe! I fine tuned it using all the reviews and I think I made it perfect! First, I did grill the peppers before I put them in the chicken and I stuffed them with chedder cheese, I despise cream cheese. Also, I made homeade italian dressing (the kind that comes in the seasoning packet that you mix with oil and vinegar) that gave it a very robust flavor. Then when I marinated it I threw in some fresh diced garlic, basil and parsly. It gave it A LOT of flavor. The bacon is a must, it adds a nice flavor and really holds it together during cooking (the secret to keeping the chicken in one piece is to put the bundles of chicken packed TIGHT on a HOT grill and leave for 5 mins before turning, then lower the heat)I liked this a lot, I served it with corn and herb potatoes, definately a keeper!

Party Punch X

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2006
This is a GREAT punch, I have used it and eaten it since I was like 5. Although, I myself don't care for ginger ale. Trust me when I say this; lemon-lime pop is a much better choice. To this day, in the summer I drink nothing else but sierra mist and rasberry sherbet YUM!
