Creamiest Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
I can't really rate the recipe because I haven't made it yet, but I was reading some of the comments and I have some advice. Add a tablespoon or so of corn syrup to the melted chocolate to solve the clumping issue. The molecular structure of the glucose in the corn syrup helps to prevent crystallization. It is very often added to frostings, puddings and jelly for this reason.

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
I've made donuts a few times before trying this recipe and none of them compared. Instead of the usual donut shape I left them whole and filled them with blackberry jam. I made them for a party and people said they tasted like store-bought donuts. Very good recipe.

Honey Curried Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
This recipe was delicious. To cut down on cooking time, I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into large pieces. I also used both white potatoes and sweet potatoes. The sweet potatoes worked really nicely with the sauce. I got a lot of compliments. Thanks!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
These were absolutely delicious! Like other reviewers suggested, I used an entire 15 oz. can of pumpkin rather than only 1 cup. I also substituted 1/2 cup of brown sugar for 1/2 cup of the white sugar. I added pumpkin pie spice to the glaze to finish them off. They were the perfect texture...very moist.

This came out beautifully. I added fresh basil and parsley, which really enhanced the dish.

Corn and Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
I omitted the red wine vinegar because I didn't want such an acidic salad, and it was delicious.

Super Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
This is some of the best salmon I've ever tasted. I didn't have a grill available, so I baked it, covered, in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. I've made it with various types of dry red wine (not just Shiraz) and it's wonderful every time. Thank you for this recipe!

Autumn Harvest Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
These cookies were delicious. I added an extra tablespoon or so of brown sugar and used 1 teaspoon of OJ because I didn't have any orange extract. The flavor was good, but a little lacking, so I made an orange glaze (powdered sugar, orange juice, and cinnamon) which added exactly what was missing. They got rave reviews from all of my guests.

Scott's Buffalo Wing Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
This recipe is much better than plain hot sauce and butter. The sweetness from the ketchup and honey cuts a lot of the acidity from the hot sauce. The only change I made was to increase the amount of hot sauce and add some cayenne because I like spicy buffalo wings. Great basic recipe.

Balsamic Glazed Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I didn't really care for this. I love the flavor of balsamic and thought it would go nicely with salmon, but I think the orange and the brown sugar made it taste a little off. It was still good, but definitely not great.

Bread Machine Challah II

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
I've tried so many challah recipes and I like this one a lot. I followed a reviewer's suggestion and added an extra 1/2 cup flour to prevent stickiness. It had wonderful texture and flavor. The first time I made it I didn't have any honey, but after making it again with the honey added, I actually liked it better without because it was a tad bit fluffier. Really good!

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
This was delicious. I used brown sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg and cloves to sprinkle in between the layers of batter. I will definitely make this again in the future.

Pumpkin Pecan Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
These were good, but not great. I really enjoyed the flavor and the pecans added a nice touch, but there was something odd about the texture. After they came out of the oven I tried one and it had a consistency almost like play-dough, kind of dry and chewy, which makes me think that there was too much flour. I'll definitely make these again, but will play around with the measurements of dry vs. wet ingredients.

Autumn Apple Tart

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
I have a tart dough recipe that I love, so I used that in place of the one listed, but the concept and the topping are so great. I love the idea of apple crisp in a in tart shell. This is the perfect Fall dessert and it's so easy to make.

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
I didn't have any crystallized ginger, but they were fantastic without it. I made an orange cinnamon glaze (powdered sugar, cinnamon, orange juice, milk) instead of frosting and they were so moist and delicious!

Vanilla Spice Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
This bread was so warm and comforting. I flavor of the vanilla and spices were very subtle, but really made a huge impact. I used soy milk instead of real milk because my husband is allergic to dairy and it was still moist and delicious.

Sweet Potato and Turkey Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
This was a little bland for my taste. I made some homemade cranberry sauce to go with it and that helped a bit. I also thought the ground turkey got a little dried out after all that cooking and would have prefered piececs ofleftover roasted turkey. Overall a good base, but not spectacular.

Summer Squash Puffs

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
I didn't have enough oil to deep fry this time, so they weren't as puffy and light as I expected, but the flavor was very good. Next time I'll use the deep fryer.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
I was really excited about this recipe. The flavor was very good, but 7 minutes was too long to boil the broccoli. I took it out after 5 minutes and it was mushy. Maybe my pieces were too small? I would definitely try it again with less steaming time.
