Marinated Veggies

Reviewed: May 3, 2014
Mine turned out BAD! I did it exactly like in the recipe and my veggies were sour! They had lost all their natural flavor too... I don't know what I did wrong but next time I think i'll omit the marinade!

Winter Squash Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2014
Mine looked very much like the ones in the picture, so that was very encouraging! My husband says they are not as fluffy as the ones "we buy", but I do think they turned out fluffy and tasty. I used butter instead of shortening, I'm not sure if it influenced the result. Also, they were not too sweet and are so good hot with butter! It took about 20 minutes on 375 in my oven. They didn't really rise much (if any at all) during the second rising, but still baked nice and plump. I do like this recipe a lot, although I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not that you can't tell there's squash in them :)

Norwegian Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2013
Yummy! But I find I like them more than slightly browned :)

Simple Strawberry Syrup

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2013
Amazing on top of crepes filled with sour cream (yes, sour cream!)!!! Super easy to make, and it turned pretty sweet even with the sour batch of strawberries I used. I might actually try to use less sugar next time but this is a personal preference :)

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
With the first bite, my reaction was "Oh my God, this is amazing!" I had no idea tofu could be that good. I am NOT a tofu lover but I have been trying to find a way to incorporate it into my diet - it's healthy and there is tons of it where I live (Korea). Well I think I have found the one! This recipe is great! I didn't have tomato sauce so I blended canned diced tomatoes with the spices and garlic - it turned out delicious. You can also play around with the spices a little. I fried the tofu like the recipe instructed and I was perfectly happy with the result. I will try baking next time just to see the difference. I have to say though, I don't think the tofu needs to be crispy for this kind of meal. Soft but chewy (the texture I got after I forgot it in the freezer all night and then just thawed and cooked) was perfect. The flavors of the sauce totally killed the tofu-y flavor that usually turns me off. This is a keeper. I am making it for my boyfriend next time, and maybe even his parents (Korean).

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
Very delicious! I added salt, pepper, and garlic powder as well. I do not particularly like sweet potatoes so I may need to increase the amount of spice and salt to 'mask' the sweetness a bit in the future. Also, I don't think the sweet potatoes I buy are organic so next time I will go safe and peel them before I cook them. The skins are delicious but I don't want to risk adding pesticides to my dish. Anyway, I'm having these as a snack and they are delicious!

Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I was too careful not to overbeat the cream so I think I underbeat it - it was a bit thin and runny, but just a bit! I made it because I was craving something sweet and I didn't really have anything worthy at home. But this was delicious! The flavor is so good I never want to buy ready-made again! And it's easy to make, and will go with everything! I will make this many more times :-)

Chinese Chicken and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
Loved the taste! Clean and 'chickeny'. I thought this was too little chicken for too many veggies though, so I doubled the chicken and pretty much cut the veggies ratio in half. Tasted heavenly :-)

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
Good recipe I guess (not very experienced with baking and I haven't had many pound cakes before so not sure what it should taste like). I didn't have white sugar and I used brown so the cake turned a darker color but that's kind of nice. I expected the brown sugar would add a pleasant flavor so I didn't add vanilla as some of the other comments suggested but it turned out a little plain. Also, my eggs were right out of the fridge so the mixture curdled as I added them. I didn't know ALL ingredients were supposed to be room temperature. Maybe as a result of the curdling, the cake was less fluffy than I wished. The crust was nice and crispy, though, and overall it was quite good. AND, my boyfriend loved it! I'm adding this some time after the preivous part. After the cake sat for a day or two, it tasted a lot better! I gave it four stars before but I changed my mind and fixed the rating to five stars! This cake deserves the highest rating!
