Amaretto Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2012
I have made many box cake receipe for quickness and come across some really great ones. This recipe for me was just ok. I was expecting a lot more being a huge Amaretto fan, but this really was just not for me.

Cappuccino Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
These really were delightful muffins. I did make a few changes. As some reviews were saying these did not have enough coffee flavor I used coffee extract in place of the vanilla. I was in a rush so did not make the topping, what I used was just perfect. Trader Joes sell a Sugar, Chocolate and Coffee Bean Grinder (I just adore this product) so I grinded a large amount over each muffin before baking. Totally perfect and loved by everyone. I will make these always with these changes.

Poppy Seed Bundt Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
This cake is exactly what it is, a boxed cake! Nothing fancy and the taste is still that of a boxed cake. For me it was missing something and I think that was sour cream. I make so many of these box cake recipes (just because they are a quick and easy way of me taking baked goods to work every day). A better but very similar recipe is Lisa's chocolate chocolate cake off this site. Just change the cake mix and pudding mix to make the flavor you want.

California Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
I followed this recipe exactly, other than using a variety of vegetables. I just loved the taste of the marinade, it was just enough of a flavor without being over-powering. You still got to enjoy the taste and texture of the both the sirloin and vegetables. Thank you for sharing.

Summer Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
Great easy recipe, nice summer salad. The other reviews are right there is no dressing but in all honesty I didn't think it needed one. I Didn't have a green onion so used a fine sliced red onion in its place and had to sub dry cilantro for the fresh.

Sock it to Me Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
I followed this recipe exactly. I used a Pilsbury Butter Cake mix and also added a little butter extract. Some of the other cooks stated that the cinnamon was too strong in the center, so I decided to swirl this through o even out both the taste and texture. Very quick and simple cake. Thank you for sharing.

Coconut Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
I followed this recipe exactly, but it took me two hours to cook! The crust was so dry, but the inside would not firm up. Although I liked the taste of the inside, the overcooked crust really spoiled this cake. As written its not something I will bake again.

Baked Tomatoes Oregano

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
These really don't taste anything like pizza but they are pretty good just the same. I used packaged bread crumbs but followed the rest of the recipe exactly.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
I used baby broccoli and followed the recipe exactly. I didn't have cashews so used sliced roasted almonds. This recipe really made a change, from simple plain old green vegetables. Thank you for sharing.

Gold Rush Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
Quick, simple easy bars to make. I needed something a little different to take to work and this recipe did the trick. Not saying its a recipe I would rush back and make time and time again but made a great one off treat.

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2012
What a great frosting, I used this to frost chocolate chip cupcakes. I followed the recipe exactly, not sure why some reviewers said it was difficult to handle. The key is to give the first few ingredients a good mix, which made it so light and fluffy. I'm sure I will use this the next time I need to give a cake a peanut butter kick. Thank you for sharing.

Too Much Strawberry Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2012
I made a very similar cake to this before (Lisa's chocolate cake ~ from this site). The main thing with this recipe is to reduce the oil to just 1/2 cup (1/2 cup of apple sauce also works very well). I did add one cup of white chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon of strawberry extract and one teaspoon of almond extract. I baked two of these cake for the guys at work and everybody loved it. The cake had disappeared so fast. The result was a very moist and flavorful bundt. certainly be making this cake again. Forgot to mention I used the Pilsbury cake mix.

Raspberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
I just loved these muffins. The perfect combination of raspberries and white chocolate in every bite. I followed the recipe exactly. The only negative was that out of 36 muffins ~ 10 broke when taken out of the pan. they really had stuck! Hopefully I won't have the same problems next time, as I will certainly be baking these again.

Lemon Chewy Crisps

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
I'm rating this as a 4 star. while I love the taste of the cookie I did not like how flat they turned out. I also doubled the recipe and only ended up with 24 cookies so not sure how I single batch could make 2 dozen. Nice cookie, but not sure its something I will bake again.
