Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
This tuna casserole was delicious! I added 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper, and 1 to 1 1/2 tsp of kosher salt. I also used whole milk. For the bread crumb topping, I used extra sharp cheddar cheese. This recipe takes more time to make but it's well worth it. It's better than using the recipes that use canned cream of mushroom soup.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
My friend loved this recipe. Next time I'll chop up the onions and layer the potatoes and onions rather putting all the onions in the middle. I'll also pour the sauce between the layers rather than all on top so the potatoes get soaked with the cheese sauce.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
I followed the frosting recipe and it was like a hard piece of clay that would not spread when added to the warm brownie. The weight of the frosting created a crater on top of my brownie from the weight. I put the frosting back in the bowel and added water to thin it out and then it was spreadable. I baked the brownie 22 mins. It was like a molten lava cake. Brownie will taste great warmed in the microwave with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Don't overbake.

Ono Butter Mochi

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
The was so tasty! I never knew this type of dessert existed. My friend tried it and thought it was a winner. I took the advice of previous reviewers and baked it for 50 mins. at 350 then loosely covered with aluminum foil and baked for 20 mins. and turned off the oven for the last 5 mins. I used one can of coconut milk and the rest whole milk. I wanted a smooth texture so I omitted the coconut flakes. I'm wondering how it would taste if raisins were added. It was easy to find Mochiko at H Mart, an Asian grocery store. I highly recommend buying an oven thermometer. My oven takes a while before it reaches the correct temperature.

Farmer's Strata

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
This strata was flavorful and moist. It gets better each day. I adjusted the recipe to my personal taste. I chopped up a pound of bacon. I drained off all the fat except 1 tbsp. for sautéing the ham and 1 medium onion. I used ¾ bag of shredded Potatoes O’Brien (found in the refrigerated section). I added ¼ tsp of ground black pepper, ½ tsp of salt, and 5 drops of Tobasco sauce to the egg mixture. I layered the bread, cheese, shredded potato and half the meat mixture, and repeated the layer again instead of having the meat mixture only in the center (top it off with cheese). I did not have time to let it sit overnight so I baked it immediately at 350 for 60 mins. (turned off the oven at 50 mins. and let it sit in the oven for 10 mins). If I could, I'd give it 4.5 stars. It was delicious but too much meat and fattening.

Special Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
This recipe is too runny and requires adjusting the amounts. Eventhrough I had addied an extra boiled egg, it didn't help. After adding two tbsps. of relish and 1 tbsp. of horseradish, it was so runny I had to skip the mustard. It tasted good but I would have preferred a creamier consistency.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
After reading the reviews, this recipe was modified quite a bit from the original. I used 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 1/2 cup applesauce, 1 tsp vanilla extract (use the real thing, please), 1 cup white sugar, 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, 3 cups zucchini (left in a sieve to drain), and a bag of defrosted blueberries. Baked in two regular sized loaf pans. Topped them with a crumb topping made up of 1/3 cup packed brown sugar, 2 tbsp flour, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and 1 tbsp butter. Baked both pans at 350 for 1 hr. Even after reducing the sugar and adding the crumb topping, it was still sweet so do not put in 2 1/4 cups sugar. This bread is very moist and delicious.

Apple Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
The flavor was tasty. I followed the recipe exactly except I used vegetable oil. I didn't have buttermilk so I added 1 tbsp. of white vinegar a cup of 2% milk, and used only 3/4 cup. Next time I'll decrease the sugar to 1/2 cup (1/4 c. brown and 1/4 c. white). I recommend using a cup each of apples and carrots and 1/2 cup walnuts.

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
I really liked the flavor of this lasagna but I thought the sauce was a bit dry. Next time I will add a 14 oz. can of tomato sauce. I made the mistake of using San Giorgio's no bake lasagna. This is a terrible brand for no bake lasagna. It is VERY THIN. Because the pasta was not detectable, the sauce overpowered the whole dish. If you must use no bake lasagna, go with Barilla. I've used it before, but the store didn't sell any. Next time I will put in more effort and cook my own lasagana.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
This soup was delicious! It tastes just like the one at the Italian restaurant chain. I omitted the bacon. Next time I'll use kale. Spinach is too soft and has a slimey texture. Do not slice the potatoes too thin or else they will fall apart during cooking.

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
The best part of this cake is that it is light and fluffy. Removing the cake from a spring form pan is so easy. I'm giving this recipe four stars because there simply is not enough cranberries for the topping, and there's too much butter in the batter. I would omit the nuts. I'm going back to my old cranberry upside down cake recipe which uses egg whites for volume and a whole bag of cranberries without nuts.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
I added 1/2 cup each of ghirardelli semi-sweet and white chocolate chips, and half a package of Heath toffee bits. This is the same recipe from Cook's Illustrated. I think this is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe. I use an ice cream scoop and freeze them. When I need a treat, I'll pop one (or two) in the toaster oven for 16 mins. at 325F. The key is to not overbake.

Baklava

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
This is the BEST baklava EVER. The ones I've purchased at Middle Eastern bakeries do not use butter and that's what makes baklava rich and flavorful and tasty. It's better with butter.
