Pineapple Upside-Down Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
I did not like this cake at all..I think it calls for way too much flour because it's very dense, almost like you're eating pudding. (It's definitely not undercooked...just very dense.) Too bad I made it for a luncheon today. :( lol

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
Absolutely wonderful. Don't change anything. My department at work went CRAZY over it. I thought 1 and 1/4 cups of oil seemed like a lot but it just made the cake so moist and tender (Not greasy, trust me). Even more important - Don't listen to bad reviews from people who didn't follow the recipe! They're giving their own recipe a bad review at that point, not this one. Also, remember that ovens are different. Check on the cake a few minutes early if you think you need to. The second that toothpick is clean, it's done.

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
Double up on the spices and these are fantastic. I also add a little soy sauce and celery seed, and cook the cabbage/carrot mixture with the meat for the last few minutes. I am constantly being asked to make these for parties!

Sweet Potato Pie with Marshmallow Meringue Topping

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
This recipe is fantastic! I usually stick with the highly reviewed recipes to be safe but I went ahead and gave this one a try. I'm glad I did! This is my favorite way to eat sweet potatoes. It's nice and sweet, almost like a sweet potato casserole.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This is the best lasagna I've ever had (really!). Not only is the lasagna to die for, but the sauce is PERFECT for spaghetti or whatever else you'd use tomato sauce for. It's very forgiving so feel free to add more garlic, more basil, or whatever you want. One thing to consider though is the salt. I really think 1 tablespoon is a typo and that it should be 1 teaspoon. That is what I used and it turned out perfect. I also used fresh basil (Use 3x the amount when using fresh). Dry basil just can not compare.

Slow-Braised Beef and Cherry Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
This was really yummy! Super important to note that the actual recipe from Chef John's website calls for *prepared tomato sauce*, as in, the jar stuff...not plain tomato sauce from the can!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
Delicious! The meatballs came out perfectly tender. The key is the fresh breadcrumbs, they soak up sauce and become "moisture blobs" in the meatballs. lol. I added more garlic to them and threw in a little salt and a small amount of red pepper flakes to avoid the bland tasting meatballs that some other reviewers mentioned. I will definitely make this again. As with all recipes that call for basil, I implore you to use fresh basil (Use 3X the amount when using fresh!), it's so much better than dry basil.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Wow! These remind me of those Hawaiian rolls I love so much. I started making these before I realized I ran out of regular butter so I used honey butter. I don't know if that changed the taste much but these were soooo good. I also brushed them with melted honey butter when I took them out of the oven for a picture-perfect sheen. Now if only I took a picture. Darn it. :) Make these, and try it with honey butter!

Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
This is a good basic pizza dough that you can't go wrong with. Try using half whole wheat flour for a different flavor. Top that with garlic cream sauce from this site and some pre-made grilled chicken (for salads) and you have a delicious "gourmet" pizza that tastes like you spent hours preparing it! Add some sun-dried tomatoes to really woo your guests. :)

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
Pretty darn good and really easy! I used 1/2 cup of cocoa to give it a more chocolaty flavor. I think I'll use a little less next time though. :> I also made these into muffins instead of regular brownies. That way each one get's a nice crispy crust all around.

Blueberry Muffins I

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
These turned out so good! The only things that I did different were to use a few squirts of lemon juice instead of lemon zest (Didn't have any) and I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on half of the muffins prior to baking. They turned out fantastic! Definitely a keeper.

Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
These were sooooo good. I doubled up the recipe and I think they lasted about 5 minutes at the party I went to. I think I'll quadruple the recipe next time! Instead of sprinkling the brown sugar I dredged the bacon in a pile of brown sugar while wrapping the smokies. That way each smokie was evenly coated. Very easy, and it really wasn't that time consuming.

Millie Pasquinelli's Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
Delicious! These are a big hit every time I make them. I was skeptical about cooking them in oil on low for 10 minutes, but man, that must be the secret, these are so juicy (NOT greasy) and flavorful! It doesn't hurt to kick the seasoning up a bit, and sometimes I rub the chicken with cajun spices before coating when we want something with a little bite.

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
Are you kidding me? I never thought I could make prime rib that tasted this good! This is so simple and delicious. It's worth every penny you spend on this expensive cut of meat.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
Absolutely the best meatloaf I've ever had! It has a wonderful flavor & texture. Don't change a thing. (Except maybe using onion soup mix in lieu of an onion) Putting the brown sugar & ketchup on top makes it too sweet. Let it mix with the juices in the bottom of the pan.
