Sour Cream Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Great cake! The only things I changed were I halved the recipe and was out of the spices for the topping so I made the topping without. Halving it was fine, still a moist yummy cake. Skipping the spice was not a terrible mistake. But I wouldn't recommend it or do it a second time, I'd skip the topping instead. I tend to never do the topping in the middle part on these kinds of cakes either, just for reference.

Cheesy Baked Cauliflower

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
This is a great way to serve cauliflower! I added a little more mayo than mustard (I used a 2:1 ratio), mixed the parma into the mixture, and sprinkled a little extra cheese on top just to make it a little more cheese-a-licious. I had a small head of cauliflower and only steamed it for about 10 minutes, and baked for maybe 20. I had orange cauliflower so it was a little too orange/yellow looking for me. Purple would have really made it rock, or green. I will most certainly be making this again with Broccoli or whatever other cauli I pick up. Great Recipe!

Sausage Mushroom Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
I didn't make this exact recipe. But I was looking for a good quiche recipe to make with what I had (and have never ventured into quiche territory)and so I tinkered and referenced this recipe with the recipe for the spinach mushroom Quiche. This really helped me create a quiche that met my personal needs. This was great to use as reference as well as all the comments and reviews. Clearly we can tell that making a quiche is not hard and that we can tinker with ingredients. The important part is the milk/egg/cheese ratio. I used 1/2 c of half and half, and 4 eggs, fresh broccoli and fresh spinach (steamed), fresh mushrooms and green onion fried with butter, garlic and dried onion. It was a veggie heavy filling delight with 2 cups of cheese, and a frozen pie shell. It's not the same recipe here at all, but I think as a reference to help me on the path is worthy of five stars.

Bou's Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
Incredibly quick to throw together. Maybe 10 minutes tops and then that was it. I left it simmering and did chores. It wasn't terrific lip smacking dandy tasting but it wasn't terrible at all either. The first four are for the taste, I added the fifth because it was so easy to make (I had everything already)

Banana Bread VIII

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
I added 1/4 cup of milk and 1/2 brown sugar because I was low on the regular stuff. It's certainly affected the flavor but not in a terrible way. It's not my favorite though, and I likely won't make it again. The milk did help with the moisture level but this didn't make any fireworks go off for me.

Preacher Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2008
wonderful and simple recipe! I wasn't sure if the 1 minute boiling time was for one minute from the first signs of boil or from a good steady already hard boiling, so I counted my minute off from the hard boil, and it was just dandy. Cut the recipe in half, had plenty of cookies to spare.

Vinegar Pickled Carrots

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
too much vinegar, these just didn't work at all. there was no "pickle" like bite, just Vinegar bite. Followed instructions exactly, and it just didn't work out. Maybe the planets weren't aligned properly or something.

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
I cut the recipe down to serve 6, melted everything in the microwave and used a loaf pan to chill the treats in. Then took and melted 4 squares of Baker's Semisweet chocolate (chopped into smaller chunks, stirring every 30 seconds after the first 45 for about 4 minutes on high) and topped it all off with that. Took about two hours to chill into yummy chocolate coated goodness. Super simple recipe, in all (including the chocolate topping) it took me 15 minutes to make this. Can't beat something that simple.

Overnight Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
AMAZINGLY DEFIANT CAKE THAT REFUSES TO SUBMIT! Even though I managed to completely mangle the topping, which then became a hardened shell that made the cooking time take an additional 30 minutes and likely steamed some of the cake, the finished product was still a moist cake and flavorful cake. The Topping, well, that was cracked off and trashed leaving me with a topless cake, but a moist and sweet cake all the same. Worthy of 5 stars wholly, because despite operator error, it still managed to produce a moist and delicious product.

Mom's Sushi Rice

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
Be careful when rinsing the rice if you don't have a strainer to use, that rice is sneaky! Otherwise, it is just dandy! it's sticky, it's tasty, it'll suit my purposes. This is my first attempt ever at sushi rice so I made it to be the side for my Korean BBQ, which was a great plan, with steamed mixed veggies, it was perfect. I halved the recipe and there's a TON left over. apparently, if you wrap warm rice in plastic wrap, then bag it you can freeze it and it'll be just dandy the next day (or week). Wonderful recipe. I'm making Inari with this next time!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
followed the recipe exactly, it took an extra ten minutes to cook, and I'm feeling eh. Not terrible, I've certainly made worse but I've had better. Added a mint frosting for a bit of flavor. Not bad. not fabu.

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
I followed the suggestions to microwave the ingredients and made only a small batch (being reasonably wary and only one person) and the result was a peanut butter flavored chocolate like fudge. it's similar to the Microwave fudge recipe by gayle (I think that's her name) on this site, not a terrible fudge at all. This was worth every star for ease and for the tinkering of others. will make again next time i need a fast fix.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
cut the recipe down signifigantly to make just one loaf, and per another reviewer's suggestion, used 4 oz of sour cream. Took about an hour and fifteen minutes to bake at 300 but came out very moist. Worked wonderfully!

Oven Brown Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
Wonderful! added no salt, used only chicken broth and cooked it covered for an hour then for an additional 40 minutes uncovered. The rice was tender, and had mild flavor. I might dress it up next time with some veggies, serve it with chicken or beef. A wonderful recipe for brown rice, despite the lengthy cook time.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
AMAZING! I made this, halved the recipe, added half peanut butter cup chips and half chocolate pieces, and only added 1 cup of sugar as opposed to 1 1/2 cups of sugar. These are fantastic!

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
very difficult but once you master getting the chocolate around the peanut butter balls, it's not so hard. Extremely tastey, labor intensive. I attempted to make these with some young friends, it was incredibly hard and they didn't get to take part too much. Disappointing to make, delicious to eat. Worth the effort on a rainy day, or if you're looking to wow the crowd.

Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
wonderful meal option, affordable for those with a tight pocket book, just wonderful. I added a teaspoon of garlic to the onion and it added a little extra flavor to it. Worthy of five stars!
