German Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
This came out delicious. My only problem was, as another reviewer mentioned, the cake comes out very soft and fluffy. Which is great, except the frosting is thick and heavy, and thus hard to spread on what feels like a delicate surface. Admittedly, I was heavy handed in my coconut and nuts additions, and though I may go lighter on those two ingredients next time, I do still wish the cake itself was a little more dense.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2013
Finally succeeded in making bread! The first time I followed this, the bread was great except for an unfortunate raw spot in the top that just wouldn't cook away. After reading a few reviews, this was what I did. Followed the recipe, except I made buttermilk from milk and lemon juice. Combined all ingredients, kneaded in a large handful of raisins, and set on a floured pizza stone. Cooked at 350 degrees for an hour, took it out half an hour in and braised with milk and butter and returned it to the oven for the remaining half hour. After it hour was up, I took it out and immediately wrapped it in foil and a dish towel in room temperature, until it cooled. It cooked completely through and is moist, fluffy, and delicious. Win!

My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
Wow. These came out great! Follows another reviewers recommendation to change up the ingredients a bit, so this is what I did. I didn't saute the green onions, used 2 cans crab meat, 2 eggs, and upped the old bay seasoning to 1/2 tsp as well. Also, I used about 16 Club Crackers, regular mustard, and regular bread crumbs. Everything else I followed according to the recipe, it yielded 9 medium sized crab cakes. Serve these with Garlic Aioli (also found on this website). Delicious, and definitely worthy of a repeat!

Excellent! Don't forget to grease the pan, otherwise these will want to stick.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2013
Melted 1/4c sweet cream butter with about 2 tablespoons minced garlic, held off on the parmesan because I was already making garlic parmesan potatoes. Cooked 4 chicken breasts on 400 degrees for 23 minutes. Came out moist and quite delicious.

Tomato Bisque III

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2013
Absolutely delicious. I doubled the recipe, used fresh tomatoes (16 Campari, didn't bother peeling, seeding, and I quartered instead of diced because I knew it would all get pureed in the end), a 6oz can of tomato paste, and 3/4 cup of half-and-half cream instead of 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Will definitely make it this way again.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
True, I didn't follow the ingredients list to the "t". However, having followed suggestions from other reviewers, this yielded a VERY delicious soup that will definitely be worth remaking. This is what I changed. I omitted the potatoes and celery. When cooking the vegetables (squash, carrots, and onion) in butter, I added a tablespoon of minced garlic. Once the vegetables had 5 or so minutes on the heat, I added 4 cups of chicken broth, 1 tsp cinnamon, a dash nutmeg, a pinch of curry (just to bring out the complimentary spices, there is no real hint of curry in the final product), 1/4 cup of spiced rum (I used Captain Morgan's Tattoo), and 1/2 cup of half and half. Everything else I followed according to the recipe. I had a bowl with a dollop of sour cream, and then one without. The difference is negligible. I don't know what the original would taste like, but these changes made this soup absolutely fantastic. My husband just finished licking his second bowl clean. UPDATE:: So this is the second time I've made this soup, and here are the following changes I made. Split a butternut squash in half, put em in a bowl over about half an inch of water, and microwaved for 15 mins to soften. Into the stockpot, I threw in a sweet potato with the carrot, onion, and squash. Added 3 cloves of garlic, the same spices I used last time, except for the rum, and half and half. Delicious, and I think even better than last time.

Apple and Brown Sugar Corned Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
I've always gone to this recipe for corned beef. I've only ever made it in the crock pot though, and there wasn't any room for the vegetables and the meat wouldn't be completely covered. Now, I've tried this in a stock pot on the stove (40 min per lb) and doubled the broth ingredients. This was the best it ever came out, absolutely delicious and moist. I will never go back to the crock pot.

Irish Cream Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This recipe was delicious! Do try to caramelize the sugar with a blow torch, I followed someone's advice by putting these under a broiler, and it just didn't work out.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This was chunky and delicious! Don't try to substitute lime juice and cilantro, we did on our first batch and it just didn't have the same punch. Stick with the ingredients and you're sure to have a real pleaser here.

Creamy Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This was delicious! After following recommendations from other reviewers, I doubled the recipe, and it made about 5 servings that disappeared very quickly. I doubled everything except the cheese, 1- 8oz block of sharp cheddar was just enough, and anymore would have been overwhelming in my opinion.

Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
I followed a few suggestions for making self-rising dough from (flour, baking powder, and salt). I also threw in some garlic powder into the mix, sprinkled fresh rosemary on top of the rolls, which I'd set on a greased cookie sheet, and glazed with melted butter. In a convection oven, I baked for about 20 minutes, until the fork I used to test with came out of one of the rolls clean. They came out moist, flaky, and delicious! Thank you for the great base recipe!

Creamy Potato With Rosemary Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
This is a great recipe. Had to make it again because the first batch disappeared so quickly. Used 2% milk this time because I ran out of half and half. I noticed using entirely half and half made the soup very thick and heavy, whereas using only milk made it more of a cream soup. I threw in a little extra garlic (as per my norm) and went a little heavier on the cayenne, the soup had just the right amount of heat and was absolutely delicious. I also threw in some chives at the end of the cooking, everything was great. I served it with bacon on the side and dinner rolls (recipe found on this site, Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls).
