Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
Everyone loves this carrot cake, it's the best one I've found so far! And, I don't even like carrot cake. I just top it with my cream cheese. This cake is very flavorful. This only change I make is I prefer to toast my pecans before I add them.

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2014
It was yummy and filling! I first followed the steps and the original recipe. I did swap out the sugar for the only substitute I had which was Truvia. I added chopped Kale too. It didn't affect the flavor at all. I did follow the suggestions of other reviewers and puréed the oats prior adding the other ingredients. It was smooth and very filling. I was full until lunch time! Will make it as my new go to breakfast. Thanks Astrophe.

Whoopie Pies VIII

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
I bake for a living & these tasted pretty good! plenty of cocoa flavor. I sifted the cocoa, flour, etc before adding. I couldn't stop sampling the batter! It was sooo good. I followed a few tips from others reviewers. I added 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup white sugar instead of the 2 cups of white sugar. I also prefer butter to shortening but, I appreciate the lift shortening brings. So, I added half butter and half shortening. I tried a greased pan but it resulted in flattened cakes. The pan used with parchment paper gave me thicker cakes that didn't spread much. I also felt that they were a bit dry when baked at 400 degrees for 8 minutes. But, I did use my small batter scooper(3/4 tblspn). I only baked two pans worth about 8 per pan. I'm thinking about adding a little espresso powder to the remaining batter. For the filling I used a marshmallow fluff recipe shared by one of the reviewers of the Oatmeal Whoopies. Once I put them together I froze them for about 20 minute to set.

Shrimp and Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
Great recipe! Like other reviewers I cut the butter & olive oil in half, I did use the full 16oz bag of noodles. It was a tad bland so I added a dash of Tony Chachere's Salt Free Seasoning. Forgot to get garlic cloves, so I had to use garlic powder. I used about 3/4lb of mushrooms because my kids aren't fans of mushrooms but, I love em. I cut the asaparagus into fours. I will use more veggies the next time. My daughter said it's her new fav! Even my son that hates cheese liked it(next time will set some aside before adding parmesan). It was such a hit, that I'm adding it to my Easter menu. Thanks for sharing!

Maple Walnut Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2013
Delish! But, I wish I'd followed other reviewers suggestion and used a traditional crust instead of a graham cracker crust. Even though I covered the rim with a pie ring the pie crust still over cooked around the edges. The rest of the pie was really good. And, everyone loved it. I used two teaspoons of maple flavoring and added a 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. I also increased the butter to four tablespoons and increased the amount of spices just a little. The graham cracker crust really compliments the maple flavoring. I will make it again for thanksgiving but, instead of baking at 425 for 15 minutes and then another 30 minutes on 350, I'll lower the temps a bit to keep the graham cracker crust from burning.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2013
I baked the first batch for my coworkers as a tester, they were so easy to make that I woke up early and whipped up a second batch before work. I think the batter needs a little more flavor for my tastes but it's yummy as is. My changes: I used cinnamon because I forget to buy nutmeg. With the first batch I forget to melt the butter for the batter, that produced the same end result but, the batter resembled more of a normal lumpy muffin textured batter. I have an electric oven, so I had to rescued the baking time to 15 minutes max. I generously sprayed my pan with Professional grade Pam but they kinda stuck a little, a little nudge with the pairing knife popped em right out. I kept the butter warm during the dipping process(10 seconds in the microwave), and I noticed the cinnamon/sugar mixture stuck better to the muffin. I used my mini muffin tin and ended up with 26-28 minis after filling each 1/2 way. My pan makes mini muffin/baby cupcakes(lol). My coworkers gobbled up the muffins & my sons loved them. Thanks Dianne!

Bruschetta III

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
My family couldn't get enough of the them. It was my first time making them & it was a chore to chop up enough of the tomatoes, but, it was worth it! I made more the next day too. I did make a few adjustments, I used regular french bread, I used the tips posted from a few other Allrecipes cooks. Then, just fine tuned it to my tastes. I added more olive oil & a bit more cheese, I used garlic powder & minced garlic(as posted by another) I also toasted the bread after brushing it with the oil. Added more black pepper too. It is a really good recipe, thanks for sharing it Susan!

Lemon Pie I

Reviewed: May 18, 2014
I first made the filling based on the original Brandi(the poster's) recipe. But, I like lemony things, so I followed MommyfromSeattle's suggestions. I added part RealLemon juice & part fresh squeezed lemon juice, lemon zest and one teaspoon of lemon extract(more made it too lemony for our tastes) & a little yellow food coloring. The pie had a great, light and summery taste. Will make again soon. Thanks Brandi for such a quick and delish dessert.

Chili I

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
It was good but, definitely needs a little tweaking. Like other reviewers I used more than one type of bean. I used pinto and red beans. I also followed another reviewers suggestion and used diced tomatoes with green chiles. I ran out of vinegar and was unable to add it. But, my kids enjoyed it and we love chili!

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
This cake STUCK to every pan I used! It tasted good. But the instructions state to only grease the pan. I used 2 types of pans(non stick & aluminum, greased) & it still stuck. I even floured & greased a pan. The recipe is simple to follow though. I just couldn't appreciate the cake to its fullest w/it faling apart.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
I will have to retry this recipe, they stuck to the pan, it was just not thick enough for the recommended pan and a bit too sweet for me. I am a baker by trade but, we all have our bad days, so I will re-post after the next batch. They did taste just like choco chip cookies...yummy but sweet!
