German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
I halved the recipe to make 12 cupcakes and these taste amazing. For a cupcake, the cake part is very light. However, its so moist and melts in your mouth. A tip for other cupcake makers. This batter doesnt give you that mushroom top, so be careful to not overfill or the cake oozes over the sides and sticks to the muffin tin. I will definitely be using this recipe again and its going into my recipe book.

Golden Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
I used 2 tsp. of vanilla instead of using almond extract. I also used all room temperature ingredients. The recipe was easy as cupcake recipes go, and these didnt taste bad. The draw back is that the tops get hard and taste like sugar cookies and the center is chewy. Again, they didnt taste bad at all, its just the hard exterior and chewy interior. If you like that, then you will like this recipe. For my purposes, I am still on the hunt for the best vanilla cupcake that is moist throughout, with great vanilla flavor. This wasnt it. If anyone has one, please share!

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Im giving this a 4 because I didnt necessarily care for it, but my family did. Maybe I should have let it bubble more in the oven but it had an overwhelming soup taste not so much of a salsa flavor. Also, I cut back on the cheese as we are eating healhier in our house. I cut back to 1.5 cups of 2%cheddar which was still plenty.

Delicious Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I definitely say double the rice! Also, I didnt divert from the recipe except for that and I found that it was delicious. Once I realized how much soup mixture there was compared to rice, I used 1/2 the soup mixture one night, refrigerated it then used the other 1/2 at the end of the week with a new batch of rice.

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
These were amazing! I added 4 cloves of garlic just because I love garlic and added the cilantro as a garnish when I took the pot off the stove. They tasted just like the black beans I had at the Cheesecake Factory. Will definitely be making again.

I wasn't over the moon for this but my boyfriend loved it. I don't think tilapia is a fish for me.

French Onion Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I used brown rice and microwaved it in the French onion soup for 5 minutes. I also browned the beef then combined everything together. I was concerned the rice wouldnt cook through otherwise. Overall very tasty and will definitely be making it again.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
Best chocolate cake I've ever baked or eaten. I used the hot water but next time will use the coffee instead as recommended by other reviewers. I made a double batch in 1 bowl to make 3 nine inch cakes. I then used a peanut butter frosting to ice for my Dads birthday. Everyone loved it. It was chocolatey and moist. I even made a few cupcakes with the leftover batter I had. Equally as delicious. I've found my go to chocolate cake recipe and won't need to look any further!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
I made a few changes. First I made a whole wheat crust and only used a top crust to cut down on the calories and fat. I also used a light butter instead of full fat butter. I also used a pound of chicken tenders instead of chicken breast only because its less cubin. Last I added a little garlic powder. Turned out well. With a few modifications I was able to make a more healthy version.

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
Really liked this. Like others I used all whole wheat flour and based on other reviews should have cut back the flour a bit since it was all whole wheat. Regardless, I added a little more water and it turned out fine. It will make 2 crusts, I baked one and froze the other.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
Love this chili recipe and I have made it time and time again. I put it in the slow cooker, and let it cook all day. The only thing I recommend for those who like to use a slow cooker is to slightly decrease the amount of tomato juice. Otherwise, absolutely perfect!

Florida Key Lime Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
I must be missing something because this didn't taste like key lime at all! First, I could barely taste the lime at all. Second, the filling is enough for 2 pies not just 1. Either I missed something or my taste buds just wanted a tangier version.
