Homemade Chicken Cacciatore, Sicilian-Style

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Okay recipe, however I like using olive oil vs butter and red bell pepper and a tsp of crushed red pepper. I also prefer to crisp the chicken first by coating in flour and frying in a bit of olive oil until skin is crisp. It also seems to help thicken the sauce. This came out too runny and wasn't spicy enough. I think ill stick to my old recipe.

Cannoli

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This is a good recipe, however I'm just not a fan of pure ricotta filling.. When I was a kid my grandma who was from Italy made cannoli for me on special occasions and she always used mascarpone cheese. I personally think it makes for a deeper, creamier cannoli filling, but maybe I'm just biast to grandma :)

Chicken Tinga Tostados

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
This was suuper good!!! My boyfriends old roommate is from mexico and made this all the time, but he lost her recipe and decided to make this instead. It is sooo good!! He used more Chipotle peppers in adobo (one large 14oz can) chicken stock instead of bouillion, a can of mexican stewed tomatoes with jalapenos, mexican squash and 6 tomatillos at my request for more veggies in it and cilantro. It is amazing with lettuce and fresh tomatoes added ontop. We also had the leftovers ontop of lettuce, black beans, corn, fresh tomatoes, tostada strips and a buttermilk ranch dressing as a salad and it was yummy!!

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
I've never made gumbo before, but have had it before and knew what I was looking for. This had okay flavor, but was in my and my boyfriends humble opinion, was lacking in chunky vegetables/proteins and reminded me too much of chili. We ended up adding in 2lbs of shrimp and 8 sliced andouille sausages to make it a bit heartier and served 6 people with plenty of leftovers. Next time I will try another, though..

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I like this recipe, but I did not follow it 100%. I used brown sugar instead of white and couldn't find maple sugar to roll them in so I used white. These were very good, but a bit too sweet... rolling them in sugar was over-kill for me. But my friends 6yr old loooved them ! I give this recipe a 3.. the kid gave them a 5 !

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
This turned out sooo good. Although I baked a two layer round cake and used more cream cheese in the frosting ( I thought it was waaay too sugary )The cake its self was moist and flavorful and had a great balance; it wasnt too sweet or to savory ! yumm.. but i would suggest using 14oz cream cheese in the frosting and an extra tsp of vanilla.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
Loved these cookies, although I used 1tsp of vanilla and 1tsp coconut extract along with 1/2c chopped white chocolate. I also toasted the coconut flakes in a preheated oven for about 15 minutes. :) Very good

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
I loved the quality of this quice and got raves from my roommates for sunday brunch! Although I added 4 slightly boiled asparagas cut into small pieces in the mix, also placed small thin cheese slices ontop and broiled the quiche at the end for a few minutes until bubbly and golden brown.

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
I've tried many different biscotti recipes, but this one is my favorite. I like to experiment with different fillings.. once I added 3/4c chopped dried cranberries and 1/3c almonds and substituted vanilla extract for almond extract and drizzled with white chocolate cinnamon mix and it was DELICIOUS. Another favorite altercation is to add one chopped and frozen large candy bar (I use a local organic hazelnut milk chocolate bar... symphony bars work as well) and add crushed bits to mix before baking. They seem to melt instantly when dipped into hot coffee. Another idea is 3/4c shredded coconut and 1/4c white chocolate bits. After they have cooled dip them into white chocolate and sprinkle with coconut ! Soooo very good and sooo easy to make. My boyfriend hates crunchy biscotti, but absolutely loves this recipe.. And my mother loves hard crunchy biscotti and just raves about how good of a recipe this is. I brought a double batch of candy bar biscotti to work and they didn't even last 2 days before they were completely devoured by co-workers !! For christmas, I am adding nutmeg, cinnamon, peppermint extract and crunched ghiradelli peppermint chocolates to the mix. Topping with white chocolate and peppermint sprinkles :) This recipe is THE best and originality makes it even better !
