Has anyone ever tried any of Martha Stewart''s recipes? I have made a few from Martha Stewart LIving and I am done. Yesterday I made a cake from her Feb issue and it was very involved and a lot of work, which I don''t mind if the payoff is good. But it wasn''t. The recipe said to cook the cake for 40-45 minutes. The thing was almost burnt after 23 minutes. It had a sauce that went over the top that said to cook it for 5 minutes and it would end up being a certain amount and it was way more than that after cooking 20 minutes. I have tried her recipes before and they were never really bad but just not that good for the amount of work involved. I wonder if she tests these recipes. I read a thing about cookbooks recently and it said sometimes they put these recipes in their books without testing them and they flop. I can usually make a recipe work. I make a Paula Dean one on occasion and they always come out good.
