Apple Bread

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
Perhaps it is because I messed up the recipe, but this apple crumbled pretty easily after I took it out of the oven 55 minutes later. I tend to like moister dessert breads, so I substituted mayo for the eggs. The batter was very dry (even without walnuts!), and I had to mush the apples into the batter to get enough moisture into the recipe. I suggest shredding the apples to make it easier to mix. Otherwise, the taste was excellent!

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
It's like a peanut butter cookie in bread form! The only thing I have against this recipe is that the outer crust came out a lot harder than the moist innards, but that might have been because I subbed oil for butter and 2 T mayo for 1 egg in hopes of getting it more moist. Tastes great though!

Whole Wheat Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
Amazing bread! When I tasted the batter, I was dubious about it tasting good, but when it came out of the oven, it smelled so good and tasted even better! The only differences I made was to use 4 T of mayonnaise instead of the eggs and used all purpose flour instead. The top came out somewhat burnt in about 50 minutes in the oven, but that could just be my oven, so I will bake it at 350 degrees next time instead. Great recipe!

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
I baked this into a breadpan for an hour, but I think that this recipe isn't phenomenal. I recommend making both bread and muffins using the recipe Emily's Famous Banana Oat Muffins. That recipe created more moist muffins and bread with a better taste.

White Russian Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
FANTASTIC after I followed the suggestions of halving the cream cheese filling. I even baked this in a 8x12 cake pan and it turned out great after 35 minutes in the oven. Even though it was hard to spread, I felt that it was truly a brownie's thickness when done that way. I was very satisfied. The only different thing I did the second time I made these was increase the amount of vodka in the chocolate mixture by about 3 Tablespoons, since I felt that it was a little weak in the alcoholic taste. Finally, I heavily recommend oiling the pan well. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Coconut Shortbread

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
Just taste okay. Can't taste any of the coconut. Tastes like lightly sweetened plain bread except in cookie form.

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
Disappointed. Maybe it was because I chose to substitute fresh tomatoes instead of canned and I didn't have chili powder, so I just added more cayenne and paprika, but this recipe was really a disappointment.

Cocoa Banana Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
Aw, I was sort of disappointed since I was expecting more of a "bar" or brownie-like texture. It turned out more like a cake. The flavor was pretty good, though I would have liked more of a chocolate flavor. Next time what I think I will do is add another banana, more cocoa, another egg, and less baking soda and powder.

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
I agree with the other posters that it needs raisins. I also used oil for the fat. If you eat this plain, it tastes like cornbread without the corn-y taste.

Texas Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
Much too sweet! I had to add twice the amount of cocoa and slightly less sugar.

Chocolate Banana Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
It tastes pretty good! I wanted to make more of a chocolate banana bread, so I halved the recipe, used a little more than a cup of bananas, 1/4 cup of oil, and replaced eggs with 4T of mayo. I baked in a 8x4" bread pan for 50 minutes.

Peanut Butter Mini Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
The first time around I subbed white sugar for brown sugar, used creamy pb, and omitted the chocolate chips, and baked 12 regular sized muffins. The recipe resulted in a nice, moist muffin that tasted somewhat like a nutter butter (at least according to my roommate). The second time around I increased pb to 1 cup and milk and flour by about a Tablespoon, and I ended up with cookie dough-like consistency, which I baked and ended up more like a peanut butter biscuit, which was kind of cool.

Emily's Famous Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
Great recipe! I followed to a T except replaced brown sugar with 7/8 cup white sugar and a tablespoon of molasses, and decreased flour to 1.5 cups. For those of you getting dry muffins, maybe you are using small bananas. Mine were very large - about 1.3 pounds with the peel on altogether. I made this into a bread pan, and it baked in about 50 minutes.

Broccoli and Rice Stir Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
I agree with the reviews that state that you should use fresh broccoli, and that garlic is a must! And what tastes better is to add the uncooked scrambled eggs after adding the rice; it'll help distribute the egg better throughout the entire dish, while allowing it to stick to the rice, which will make the rice taste better.

Seasoned Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
Pretty good. Instead of rice, I used riced cauliflower, and I used the equivalent of chopped fresh garlic and fresh basil. A few dashes of Italian Seasoning at the end gave it a nice kick!

Pot Stickers Traditional

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
I just want to add that if you want a nicely brown and chewy dough, you should buy the actual pot sticker wrapper because the wonton one is too thin.

Onion Bulgur Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
Didn't have parsley, and I substituted millet for the bulgur. Otherwise, this recipe was just okay.

Fire and Ice Tomatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I didn't have mustard seed, so I added 2 T mustard instead, and reduced the white vinegar. Maybe it was the substitution, but I really wasn't into this salad. However I must say that the flavored water that gathered at the bottom was absolutely delicious.

Bhindi Masala (Spicy Okra Curry)

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
Maybe it's because I just don't like Indian food, or maybe it was because my tomato was too big. Either way, after halving the recipe, I felt that there was not enough spice flavor, and WAY too much salt in the recipe (I would halve the amount).

Black Walnut Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I got raves about this recipe from my friends at our cookie exchange. The only difference is that I used walnuts that were already roasted with sugar, salt, and vanilla.
