Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
Delicious! Pancakes were golden, tasty and super fluffy! Barely stirred, and let everything go in at room temperature. Added a bit of vanilla for flavor, but would have been tasty either way. Also, for edges with a slight crisp to them, don't go light on the butter in the pan. :)

Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Delicious! And so easy to make! I did it on the stovetop with a thick-bottomed pan and added a dash of vanilla and salt for flavor. Word to the wise, if you do use the stove, make sure you've got your butter and condensed milk warm before adding the chocolate. Hot chocolate hates cold things, and will seize on you in no time.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
Honestly, by itself, this is a two star recipe. It's bland and watery. However, if you change a bunch of stuff, use stock instead of water, up the spices, add a ton of cayenne, cumin, paprika, chile, and even some curry powder, then it's very good.

Savory Chicken and Apple Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
With some changes, I think this can be a good recipe, but wasn't as is. Definitely needs more seasoning, and using fresh sage and thyme seems to work better than dried. Also it was really really sweet with the filling, and I think a bit less might work better. The addition of carrots and celery really works, and with a few more tweaks, I think it would be wonderful.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
These are amazing, and keep moist for a long time too. My only recommendation is to use an insulated cookie sheet if you have one. It considerably widens the window between underdone and burnt.

Not bad, but probably could have used some more seasoning.

Mexican Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
This recipe was wonderful and INCREDIBLY moist. The only changes I made/recommend is adding more spices. I added a little allspice, nutmeg and chili powder, and it was sooooo amazing. I also topped it with the coffee cinnamon frosting from this site and used chocolate frosting on the sides and inbetween layers. (used two 9X9 cake pans for 24 minutes). Wonderful, thank you!

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2008
This cake was absolutely AMAZING! I was scared about making my own frosting, but it was a very simple recipe with incredible results. It stayed perfectly moist for a long time too. Longer if we hadn't eaten it so fast.

Guy Approved Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2007
Oh my gosh, this was incredible! I'm not even that much of a meatloaf person, but I am now. Sooooo moist and flavorful. I followed the advice of some of the other recommendations and slathered on a bunch of extra BBQ sauce under the bacon (heaven), used seasoned breadcrumbs instead of crushed crackers (fabulous), upped the spices as I do with everything and only cooked it for about an hour. It was perfectly done, and everyone who ate it was obsessed about getting the recipe from me. Also, for a novice/fearful chef like me, it was super-easy to make, and hard to screw up which is always a plus.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2007
This was super yummy and easy to make. The only thing missing is seasoning. When I first tasted it, I panicked because it was bland, but as soon as I added some paprika, pepper and cumin, it really brought out the flavors and was fantastic! This is definitely a keeper.
