Freezer Caramel Drizzle Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
I did modify this recipe quite a bit, but kept the principle of the dessert the same. After seeing the reviews and wonderful pictures, I decided to make this today. When I saw that it had coconut and pecans, I pretty much figured I would be the ONLY one eating this (no one else likes the two), and that would be a problem. So I started thinking what I could do instead. I started with a chocolate crumb crust instead of graham. I made the cream cheese filling as directed. After pouring 1/2 in the pan, I sprinkled the filling with more chocolate crumbs, and drizzled with hot fudge instead of caramel. Then put the rest of the filling in and topped with mini chocolate chips and more hot fudge drizzle. I hope that this gives people some ideas of things they can also do. I think that the filling is the main part of the recipe and people can use their imagination to layer whatever their family likes. I made this in a 10 inch springform pan, and needless to say, I am not the only one eating this one. It's outrageous and I will continue to make and come up with new flavor combinations! Thanks for a great recipe!

Milky Way® Cupcake Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
I used this to frost the Chocolate Bacon cupcakes from this site. I thought that the saltiness of the caramel would go well with the sweet/salty flavor of the cupcake. I was right - this icing was perfect. It really is simple to make. After I was done blending it, I put it in the fridge for about 30 minutes to set up and then piped it onto the cupcakes. I wish that I had chosen a different tip for the piping, but that is my fault. Will use again and again. I am going to try this on yellow cupcakes very soon. What a delicious, creative recipe.

Candy Corn Bark

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
After reading many reviews and needing this for a staff party, I opted to use my mini muffin pan to make these. I used paper liners, then dropped in a mini oreo, pretzel pieces, and raisins. I used my smallest cookie scoop to pour over the white coating. Then I pressed in 2 candy corns pieces. These turned out so good, and it was really easy. Now they are all individually wrapped treats. Love the chewy raisins and the salty pretzels. This candy has it all. Great, fun Halloween recipe!

Empire State Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
I've wanted to make these for some time, and finally had the time and all the ingredients, so I went for it. These are delish! I only made half a batch because I knew that I was going to be the only one eating these. I followed the recipe, but used 1/2 oil and 1/2 applesauce. All of the flavors and textures bake together beautifully.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
An absolute family favorite. I made these into muffins and mini loaves of bread. I also used the vanilla glaze recipe from this site to drizzle over the top. I made these for my daughter's swim meet for snacks, and they were the first muffins to disappear. I also subbed applesauce in for some of the oil, and they turned out moist and delicious.

Churros

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
What a fun and delicious treat for my kids. A little tricky to make, as you really do have to let the batter cool a little before putting in the piping bag. I had to double bag mine in order for the batter to not melt through. I agree with others that it's better to pipe all of them on parchment paper, and then just add them to the oil a few at a time. Piping them directly into the oil did not work for me. I immediately rolled them in the cinnamon sugar mixture to make sure it stuck and they were well coated. My kids were so thrilled. The only problem is that now they expect me to make these on a regular basis.

Mini Chip White Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
While these turned out very cute, the flavor and texture are lacking. When I removed these from the cupcake pan, there were little puddles of grease in the bottoms, and that should have been my first clue. These are not fluffy, soft cupcakes. They have a hard outer crust and the flavor that comes through the most is that of butter. I would reduce the butter and increase the vanilla in these. My kids were so excited after seeing them, but after tasting them, they didn't have more than one (which is unusual). I topped these with a homemade butter cream, which did help a little. I am not sure what size pan was used, but with mine, I yielded 40 mini cupcakes.

Chai Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
First, let me say a few things. I have never given a 1 star rating before. Usually the recipes that I make do have some value to them. The flavor may be a little off, the texture may be weird, the cooking time may be wrong, but their is usually something that I do like. Let me also say that I love chai. I drink chai every morning, so I really thought that I was going to like these cupcakes. I followed the recipe exactly. The batter turned out to be watery, not just wet, but watery. After pouring it into the liners, I baked it for 20 minutes and checked them. Not done, so left in another 5 minutes, not done. After 30 minutes of baking, I removed them. They collapsed within minutes. I don't even know how to describe the texture. It's like a really soggy cupcake - like goo in a cupcake liner. I would say tht maybe I did something wrong, but I have baked a lot of cupcakes and never had anything like this happen before. I was going to top these with the chai frosting from this site, but didn't even want to waste my ingredients trying to save these cupcakes. Sorry!

Munkiboy's Cosmo-Not

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
Kids and I decided to deviate from the usual smoothie today and instead made this. I had leftover peach juice from a can of peaches that I used instead of buying peach nectar. Other than that, I followed the recipe, only doubling it because I knew my daughters would not want to share. I was right - they wanted even more after they drank the first one. Great refreshing drink that I am sure will get many requests in this house.

Lemon Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
Very good, and so much easier than I expected. I blocked off several hours to make these, thinking they would be time consuming and complicated. They are so not. The dough came together just perfect; although basically flavorless and just a holder for the light lemony mousse filling, which is so good I would eat it out of the bowl with a spoon (or my fingers). The filling thickened for me in about 2 minutes and cooled in about 20, which made the recipe go very quickly. After the inside is removed from the puff part, they cool very quickly as well. I piped in the filling and sprinkled with powdered sugar. These are a nice light dessert.

Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
This soup was delicious and perfect for a cold, winter's night. I did make a few changes, just based on what my family prefers. I cut the onion down significantly, only using about 1/4 cup diced (since I added everything to my slow cooker, I was able to skip the butter part:). I also didn't use the ham at all, used vegetable broth, and added corn, making this a vegetarian meal. I made this really easy on myself, putting everything in my crock pot and cooking it on low for about 6 hours. Everyone really loved it and I plan on making it again.

Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
If you have ever made the frozen cookie dough balls from this site, you must make these. These are even better with the addition of the toffee bits. The dough was very easy to work with, and I had no problem rolling it into balls. I made the balls and then refrigerated them over night. In the morning, I dipped them in the melted chocolate and topped some with more toffee bits, and others with chocolate jimmies. My family and friends couldn't stop eating these, and the recipe was requested several times. These are perfect for parties. Try this, you won't be disappointed!

Oven Baked Zucchini Fries

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
Nice alternative to traditional fries. I used egg white instead of butter to dip the zucchini into before adding the crumb coating. This worked very well for me, and the coating stuck really well. This also cut down on the fat and calories to make this a reasonably healthy side dish. I also chose not to peel my zucchini. My kids preferred theirs dipped in ranch, but my husband and I enjoyed these as is.

Cranberry Layer Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I love this cake - even though I made it into cupcakes. They turned out so moist and pretty with the cranberries. I omitted the nuts in the cupcakes, but sprinkled some finely chopped walnuts after piping on the icing - which is sooooooo fabulous!!! I would use this icing on other cakes as well. The orange just takes it over the top. Great holiday dessert!

Swedish Spritz

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I chose this recipe because it has almond extract, one of my favorite flavors. It worked great in my ancient cookie press making Valentine's hearts. I topped with colored sugar, and they turned out wonderful.

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
What's not to like - chocolate and peanut butter together. Followed the recipe and added some Valentine's sprinkles before baking. My kids loved these!

Apres Ski French Toast

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
This was a good, "healthy" tasting french toast recipe. But then again, we are used to french toast being made with thick pieces of french bread, not multigrain bread. The orange flavor was just slightly noticeable after cooking. But with a little powerdered sugar and homemade syrup, this made for a little healthier french toast breakfast that we did enjoy.

Yummy Rainbow Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
If you are looking for a quick way to WOW some kids, this is perfect. Yes, it's a cake mix, but I made them into cupcakes, topped it with homemade butter cream, then added more sprinkles and kids loved them.
