Warm Caramel Apple Cake
Very good cake, although I found the cake part itself needed to be a little more moist for my taste. Next time I will try to modify it a little.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
Good recipe but I had expected a bit more of a pumpkin flavor to it. Next time I will up the amount of pumpkin as well as balance the dry ingredients to adjust it. All in all very moist and deliscious

Old-Fashioned Cinnamon Rolls
I love this recipe! It had to be one of the best cinnamon roll recipes that i have come across. They came out very moist and the dough was not difficult to work with at all. I did leave out the raisins and nuts in my version, but added a little extra cinnamon. Great recipe!

Caramel-Glazed Apple Bread
I honestly was more excited reading this recipe than I was once I finally tasted it. Don't get me wrong, it was very moist and had good texture, it was just missing something flavor-wise. The apple flavor was not as prominent as I hoped it would be. Next time, I might try to add some applesauce to it, or apple pie spice just to bring out the apple flavor a little more. I agree with another comment on here about using diced apple instead of shredded, I think that might be why it lost so much flavor. The glaze was delish, and super simple. I did adjust the cook time a little, I think it ended up being a 10 min difference from the recipe. All in all, not a bad recipe, just needs some tweaking.

I probably will not make this recipe again. There was not enough sweetness to the dough and the caramel mixture did not "thicken up" as it did in the picture. I made this two ways today, once in a normal fluted pan and then again in muffin pans, to make mini monkey bread. Either way, same results and I followed the measurements to a tee. Think there needs to be more flavor in the dough, maybe some cinnamon and more sugar to get it to the right flavor.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies
I did not put icing on them since almost every review I read before this said that they were really rich, and the icing is optional anyway. Just as good without frosting. I did not use the premium brownie mix, just a regular old fudge brownie mix. Still tasted great. Only thing I was confused on was whether or not to add twice as much butter to the cookie dough since it says to make as directed on package and then add 1/2 c more butter and 1 egg. So that's what I did. Next time I think I might swirl the cookie dough into the brownie mix instead of just dropping on top.

Peanut Butter-Chocolate Candy Cookies
Just made these cookies this morning. All in all, very delicious cookie. I made a few adjustments however and added 4 tbsps more peanut butter and 2 tbsp more flour to the dough. Cookies were delicious. Also I didn't have hershey kisses so I used reese peanut butter cups instead! My husband loves them!
