Gordo's Best of the Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2014
this is so great tasting. all the guest loved the flavor. I myself love sharp tasting cheese and this worked so nice in complementing the flavor of the sauce and ricotta cheese blend. thanks for sharing (Grandma's recipe is replaced with this one)... (sorry grandma).. But such high reviews from all of our guest and even phone calls for the recipe it was nice to tell them they could get it here!!!!!!

Dinette Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
My guests raved over this retro 1950's style cake. I did make a few adjustments however as follows: I used baking soda and cream of tartar instead of baking powder, I used baker's sugar, sea salt, butter instead of shortening and I upped the 100% real vanilla extract 2 Tablespoons as well as adding 2 Tablespoons of dried lemon zest and I used 1/2 & 1/2 instead of milk. My cake was perfect topped with the chocolate sour cream frosting I found elsewhere on this site and fresh raspberries to decorate the top. I was the best dessert I have made in ages.

Sour Cream Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
I used a 70% cacao chocolate bar that I grated, and melted with my butter, and I used baker's sugar with tapioca as a corn free version of this frosting. It was slightly grainy, but it had a decadent taste that was perfect with the "Dinette Cake" recipe elsewhere on this site. I put fresh raspberries on top of my old fashioned white cake with sour cream and dark chocolate frosting. My guests raved over the retro 1950's taste.

Banana Split Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2014
After reading reviews I did the cake mix but put it in a sheet cake pan made two witch made a much thinner cake. with one cake I took a wooden handle end rounded part once the cake was done and cooled and punch hole's into the cake all and inch apart. then poured the pudding mix over the cake making sure to fill the hole's up sliced bananas, drained the crushed pineapple really good then added to top of bananas then topped with whip cream. chocolate syrup. cherries. sliced almonds and chocolate shavings it looked as though a bakery had made it and put it in the freezer. the other half of the cake in the other sheet I took wax paper and sprinkled powdered sugar on it turned the sheet cake out on to wax paper. then did the pudding mix on top and sliced banana and small chunks of pineapple 1/2c. Rolled the cake into a log putting the seam on the bottom then topped with whip cream and chopped sliced almonds and chocolate shavings with chopped cherries and a few more chopped up chunks of pineapple and it was beautiful took them to the out door picnic party and no left overs everyone raved and love this thanks so much for sharing...

Applesauce Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
I added a tablespoon of dried lemon zest, a 1/2 C sugar, 2 T honey, 1 T vanilla extract, and 1 t almond extract. I also used thawed frozen blueberries, and I put it in my kitchen-Aid mixer with the dough hook on speed 4, which really helped with bursting the fruit to increase moisture. I also tampered with the ration of whole wheat to regular flour, and I used Hungarian unbleached flour. I had to lengthen my bake time to 35 minutes. I decided to try this recipe because I am out of eggs right now, and I would have to say that these are a bit more crumbly than with an egg in the mix. My 7 year old taste tester and I think it could use more salt, or some butter. not bad though.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2014
This cake was absolutely delicious! I cut down on the carrots so it would add some moistness to it, and I did not add the pineapple. I used this for a Father's Day picnic.
