Cream Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I had 3 8 oz packages of cream cheese that was going to be used for my white chocolate raspberry cheese cake, but didn't have time to make it. I didn't want them to go to waste (I mean, there's only so many bagels w/ cream cheese mornings I can have =P) so I was so happy when I stumbled upon this recipe! Some minor changes due to what was on hand: I used soy milk, butter instead of margarine, and less salt. Came out sO wonderful! Fluffy, Soft, Chewy! Great with some blackberry jam for breakfast.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
A for AwesOme! Didn't have any rosemary so I just added 1 teaspn of italian seasoning. used milk instead of water. Also, I added about 3/4 cup of shredded pepper jack to the dough as the bread machine was almost done mixing it. I love butter so I added a tblspn to the mix and brushed 1 tblspn of melted butter to the top of the dough just before baking. My bread machine asks for all the wet ingredients first, then the dry. Set it for basic and it was delicious! It smelled so good I couldn't wait for it to cool.. i basically burned my tongue. =P For breakfast I took a nice thick slice, sprinkled some shredded cheese, and popped it into the toaster just enough for the cheese to gOoify and the bread to soften.. *drool* it just melts in your mouth...

Really GOOD Frosting!!!

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
Really good. I'm not a fan of frosting but needed some "green grass" for my cake. Easy to work with and tasty. I used the same recipe but added 1/2 cup cocoa and reduced to 3 1/2 confectioners' sugar for the chocolate frosting in the middle of the cake. Don't think I'll use another frosting recipe. Thanks!! ^_^

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
Rave reviews all around! This is what worked for me: 16oz spicy sausage; 1 large potato & about 7 fingerling potatoes; 1 onion; 6 slices bacon cooked separately n crumbled; 2 1/2 teasp minced garlic; 1 bunch kale (washed n torn w/out stems); 2 cups chicken stock (the one i had was low sodium); 3 cups water (w/ room for adjusting); 3/4 cup half; 1/2 cup lactaid milk (for the lactose intolerant-i found that since lactaid has the enzyme that breaks down lactose, when added to a recipe that calls for creams, cheeses, etc., it makes it easier on people that are mildly lactose intolerant); 1 teaspn salt,pepper,& red pepper flakes (all to taste); and 2 or 3 slices of pepper jack cheese =); shredded parmesan for serving. ~~bake sausage @ 300 for about 25 min; cook onions in about 1 tblspn butter; add garlic and cook an additional minute; add chicken stock, water, potatoes & simmer for 15 min; add crumbled bacon, sausage, kale, 1/2&1/2, milk, salt, pepper, red pepper & simmer additional 5-10 min; add pepper jack and heat through; serve with shredded parmesan; stuff face; pass out from food coma ^_~ have with bread sticks (just like O.G.) for a great lunch.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Tasty!! Added cooked chicken to sauce before simmer, then added pasta, jullienned carrots, and a bit of sesame oil along with the other ingredients. Will try adding bean sprouts next time. My sauce was a little thick probably due to simmering for a tad too long, but I remedied that by adding about 1/4 cup of water (sauce gets pretty thick as it sits). I like spicy so I added a generous tablespoon of korean red chili paste and about a teaspoon of red chili flakes as well. Great quick dinner and sacked lunch for the next day.

Southern Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
Great! I tried frying as well as baking. Both came out very good, but I think I prefer the Baked one. 30 min at 375 degrees, turning a few times to get both sides nice and crispy. transferred the chicken onto clean foil so it wouldn't soggy on one side sitting in grease and continued baking. Added 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper; 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper (ground up a little more in my magic bullet); 1 teaspoon of garlic powder; 1 teaspoon of onion powder; about 10 saltines crushed. shook everything up in a large zip loc. Also, I Very LIGHTly coated the chicken with egg yolk before putting in a zip loc... I might try adding potato flakes next time.

Cut the hard end off the garlic, left skin on, drizzle with olive oil, wrap in foil, 30 min @ 400 degrees... squeeze the garlic out of the skin and mash along with the potatoes. also, added about 1/2 cup of milk to boil the potatoes in. 2nd time around: added small drained can of whole kernel corn and used a good amount of coarse black pepper. Awesome!

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
Awesome! I used only 1/2 of the sugar recipe calls for and used half white vinegar and half seasoned rice vinegar found in Asian markets. I tried 3 different cooking variations: 1)followed the recipe's cooking method using butter to fry in before putting it in the oven. This was good, but I felt the butter overpowered the goodness of the sauce -btw, I LOVE butter, but frying the wings in butter was a step you can definitely omit and save the calories on. 2) I followed reviewers suggestions and oven-fried. I coated with egg & flour and baked @ 400 for 25 min turning once then added sauce and baked additional 30 min @ 350. This was by far the best. The skin was nice and crispy and the sauce was fabulous. 3) I coated with egg and panko flakes, baked @400 for 25 turning once, added sauce, baked addition 30 @350. This was also good and my second favorite. the panko really soaks up the sauce and gives the wing a more sweet-sticky coat then a crispy-sticky. so it depends on your taste. For all 3 variations, once the sauce was added (lined baking sheet with foil for easier cleanup), I turned the wings a few times and then removed the wings from the sauce and placed on fresh foil over baking sheet for the last 5 min.Can't wait to make it again! I forgot to add the sesame seeds like the pictures show and really wish I didn't. I'm sure the sesame seeds are a perfect touch..

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
Great! made it in my magic bullet!! ^_^ I didn't have tahini so I just ground up some roasted sesame seeds (I'm korean so that stuff is ALways around) and added a little sesame oil. I roasted my own pepper but think I'll skip that part next time.. I added the roasted pepper last and LOOOOOVED how the hummus tasted before i put it in - after I put the red pepper in, i thought the hummus was just "good" BUT i think that was my fault for roasting my own pepper and not following the directions.

Hummus Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
OMG sOOO good!! I'm a pizza fanatic but also very open minded to "non-authentic" pizzas that play with ingredients. (think I'm just a fan of bread with stuff on it ^_^) anyway, the great thing about this recipe is that it has lot's of room for variations. I used refrigerated pizza crust (next time, I'll make that from scratch), my own red pepper hummus, jack cheese, frozen spinach drained well, lots of mushrooms, and topped with feta cheese. (was going to add some roasted chicken but didn't have any on hand - but since i didn't, it made for a great vegetarian recipe) **simply gorgeous! thanks for a creative new way to use hummus!
