"Made this for my dad's birthday and it was a hit! It came out exactly like the photo! This recipe does take a bit more effort to make. It took me a while to cut the butter with the flour and sugar. I used my hands to get it all incorporated. Mixing the batter was the hardest part--the dough is really sticky so be patient. The cake comes out dense which is typical of a coffee cake. I will be making this again and using other flavored preserves. "

"This cake is very easy to make and delicious! Next time I will slice the mandarin oranges and fold them into the batter. My hand mixer shredded the oranges and I rather have had chunks of oranges to bite into. Enjoy! "

"These are perfect if you are a lemon freak like me! I used a lemon cake mix and filled them with lemon curd and topped with white icing. The cake was moist and the curd added the extra lemon kick. I used the end of a wooden spoon to create a pocket for the lemon curd which worked out well. Next time, I will use a white cake mix instead--I like the contrast of the white cake and the yellow lemon curd in the middle. I think adding lemon zest and juice to the white cake mix will bring out the lemon flavor. Either way, this is a great recipe and my guests loved them! "

"I don't know where I went wrong but my graham cracker crust was too crumbly and the filling wasn't as firm as I'd like but it was tasty. I used bottled lime juice since I couldn't find key lime. "

"These are fantastic! I made these for the 4th of July and received good reviews. Next time I'll stir the pineapple chunks into the cake batter instead of mixing them with a hand mixer. The hand mixer shredded the pineapple. I much rather fold the pineapple chunks into the already mixed batter so I can taste pineapple in every bite. Enjoy! "

These cookies are very easy/quick to make and taste great. They are perfect for those who like soft and chewy cookies rather than crispy cookies. The cookie itself is already sweet so I drizzled the icing instead of frosting the top. I toasted some of the almonds and really couldn't tell the difference between the toasted and non-toasted. Next time I'll skip toasting to save time. Enjoy!

So good! Double the recipe, one batch isn't enough. I used walnuts and pecans but the walnuts were my favorite and had the best flavor. I used raspberry and blueberry jam--they're a feast for the eyes and tummy!

Very delicious and not your average strawberry tasting cupcake. The soda changes the taste and texture--your guests will never know they started from a box. I made these for a bachelorette party and they were a hit. I used Hansen's Diet Strawberry-Kiwi soda. Will make this again with other soda flavors. Enjoy!

Enjoyed this dish and my picky boyfriend liked it too! I forgot to buy the plain panko bread crumbs and had to use my Italian bread crumbs instead, surprising it came out great! For next time--I'll have the correct panko crumbs and pour all the excess syrup mixture into the baking dish instead of discarding it. The syrup and pecans are what make this chicken so good so next time I'll have the chicken simmer in the syrup.

Great recipe! The most time consuming part was shredding the chicken and cooking the tortilla strips but it was worth it and I love how this recipe only has a few ingredients. Will definitely make this one again.
