Whatever you do...do not try to eat these until they have sat in the fridge overnight. Once they have chilled properly you get chocolate magic!""

This is a great cheesecake. I have only one addition that really made this cake a notch higher. Get a bottle of raspberry jam and drop spoonfuls into the cake just before you are ready for baking. I like to use half the jar. Then with a butter knife, drag swirls through the cake...all over...until you have fully mixed the jam throughout the cake. "

OMG!!!! SOOOO Goood!! Such a crowd pleaser.I agree that it can be a bit soggy but there are plenty of ways to fix that. Less liquid and more bread would be a good start. Squeeze those rings of bread in there and make sure that you have a thick base before pouring in your liquid."

Best meatloaf ever! Do try this meatloaf with the buttermilk. Makes a great consistency. The bacon is really unnecessary but if you really need it try making it in a pan first and then topping it on the meat."

Great lasagna! Quite expensive, however, and as others have already said this is an all day affair so do plan ahead. I prolly wont make this one again only because I prefer a more traditional lasagna but it was great fun making this dish."

Yellowshark, did you just call an apple crumble, pedestrian? Your review helped no one simply because of your lack of critique skills and know it all attitude. Something good, something bad, and something you would improve upon....thats a critique and it makes you look like less of a jackass when you do it right. I'm sure you dont care simply because...

Make double!!! These go soooo fast. They are so simple yet so yummmy. My only advice is when picking out your jam make sure it is a thick based jam and not some watered down fruit spread. I accidentally used a fruit spread on my first batch and the strawberry spread more or less seeped into the cookie. They were still tasty but not very attractive..lol...

These cookies weren't my favorite but many of my friends thought they were fantastic so its just a personal issue i guess. They came out perfectly and the recipe was quite easy to follow but I just didnt care for the peppery flavor. I may have used too much black pepper...not sure. Definitely make them as its obvious that many people love these cookies....

Make these butterscotch bars if you love sweetness. They are very sweet indeed but very tasty as well. A previous review mentioned white chocolate chips added to the topping. I did this and they were a fantastic addition.

Amazing cheesecake! A few tips here: Make extra crust (half a recipe more) and be liberal with the butter in the crust recipe as this makes it so much easier to work with. Cook in a spring loaded pan for easy removal. The cake top does seem to crack if you look at it funny so dont even try to remove it until it is fully chilled in the fridge. Otherwise,...

These cookies are great any time of the year. Very soft and they melt in your mouth. Extremely simple to make as well. Hard to store as they do crumble a bit but they never seem to last long enough to store away anyhow!
