Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Made it for a party, everyone loved it! Used Texas Pete buffalo wing sauce instead of regular hot sauce, and did about a cup instead of 3/4.

Val and Jess's Vegan Avocado Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
This was really really good! I had to make some changes, just because of what I had on hand: -Used a can of garbanzo beans -Half of a medium onion -Can of fiesta corn -Fresh lime juice I didn't measure out the chili powder, but it probably came to about 1 TBS, and just used a tiny bit of salt and no pepper. Definitely drain the salsa! I bet it's way better with black beans, if it's possible. Next time I make it I will use a third avocado though.

Vegetable Cornish Pasties

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
Mmmm..... Sadly, my turnip had seen better days when I made this, so I left it out, and added a bit more carrot and potato. I think as long as you make the sauce, the filling is flexible. Um... yeah I also didn't actually make a pasty. I wasn't feeling all that motivated, so I made the filling and ate it with bread. But I am *certain* that it would only be better in pasty form.

Meringue Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
It's going to take some practice to get the shapes right, but then again, I've never really worked with meringue, or a piping bag. I loved them, they were too sweet, borderline on burning the back of my throat. I'm going to cut back the sugar by 1/2 C next time. The second time I made them I tried mixing the cocoa powder in the meringue instead of dusting, it's definitely *not* recommended. All in all, awesome.

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
Amazing! One of the best cakes I've ever had. I added the extra 1/2 C milk like many other reviewers said.

Cheesy Onion Focaccia

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
I used half whole wheat flour and shallots and hand made the loaf instead of using the bread machine and I also used my 10" cast iron pan. Came out wonderfully!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
This is yummy, but very very sweet. I didn't even use the full amount of sugar. Next time I'm going to try 1.5 C of sugar. I did make a few changes, I used half whole wheat flour, and substituted half of the oil for applesauce. I didn't use walnuts, I had none. I used 3 C of zucchini instead of two, which I did not drain. I did one loaf, one tray of muffins (I only have one loaf pan). It's a really good recipe, and lends itself well to substitutions. Allrecipes won't let me review this without giving it stars, I'm only rating it four because the sugar is too much, I can't imagine how sweet it would be had I used the whole amount.

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
Yay for shallots! I made this in the crockpot instead of the oven. Did almost everything the same, no bacon though, and didn't use a tenderloin roast, although I can't remember what cut I did use. Nothing expensive. I made the sauce, browned the meat, then put everything in the crockpot. When it was done I spooned out the sauce and made a gravy. Loved it.

Creamy Brown Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
Mmmm.... surprisingly good! I love rice pudding :) I think next time I'll use vanilla extract instead. I liked the almond, but I like vanilla better.

Raspberry Lemon Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
This was a very dry recipe. I had to add 1/4 C of milk to get it to batter consistency rather than dough. I also used brown sugar instead of white to try to keep some moisture in the muffins. I added about 2 TBS extra lemon juice, as I had no extract. One whole egg instead of whites, I hate wasting things. The batter didn't make enough for 12 muffins (in a regular tin) so I made 10 instead. Had to bake for longer, 20 minutes. The end result was pretty good, my husband loved them.

Mediterranean Lentil Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
It was a hit, I was so surprised! (I knew I would like it, but didn't think other people would :D ) Made this exactly how it was written, and it was perfect. I don't even like parsley.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
This was pretty good. Not the best every, but I'll be making it again. It did have a bit of a tang to it. -I used farfalle pasta, I don't know if maybe it had an effect on the finished result. -Added a bit of milk right before I put the bread crumbs on. Didn't measure, just poured a small amount over the top and stirred, probably less than 1/2 C. I really do wonder if some people who made this used a 1 lb box of pasta instead of 8 oz, I didn't find it dry. The leftovers were a bit drier, but it wasn't like I needed a sip of water after each bite or anything. I *loved* the breadcrumbs on top. I thought 1 C was just fine, but I like toppings :) I used the Progresso Italian style. Very good.

Apple Toast

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I didn't have to add sugar, like other people suggested, but different kinds of apples have different sugar levels. I used Gala apples. I didn't measure the cinnamon, just kind of sprinkled it on for a dusting. I'm going to try toasting the bread lightly first, then doing everything else. The bread under the apples was a bit soggy. Overall it was enjoyable, easy and fast, which is great for when you're really hungry.

Butterbeer

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
This isn't really a drink for everyday, but I think a big crockpot of it for a holiday party would be nice. It's different, but not so different that it's a turn-off for a gathering. Next time I'll add a bit more butter to it though, play with the proportions of everything until I get it right for me.
