Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
Phenomenal. I mean, really amazing. I used a little over two cups of banana (four HUGE bananas) and it still came out perfect. This recipe is a keeper. The only thing I wouldn't do is the icing recipe. That is just way too sweet for my taste. I use one package of cream cheese, 1/4 c butter, one teaspoon of vanilla, and one cup of confectioners sugar. Just my taste. There's nothing wrong with this icing recipe if you like very sweet icing. 3 1/2 cups of sugar is insane to me for one cake's worth of icing.

Exchange Gang Pasta with Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2014
Ahmazing. I sub linguini. Sub red onion only because I didn't have shallots on hand. Also, I cut the parm cheese. It seemed unnecessary. It was sooo good. I will for sure make this again. For. Sure.

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Too salty for me. I ended up having to mash a few extra potatoes to cut the salt. Otherwise I loved them.

Barbecued Lima Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Wow! These are the BEST version of lima beans I've found! Out of necessity I made some alterations. I used 1/2 tsp chili powder rather than hot sauce, added 1/2 tsp ground mustard, and used light corn syrup rather than pancake syrup. I also made a vegetarian version, so no bacon. Dilish!!!! Omg, sooo good. The aftertaste is incredible. p.s. I also followed a previous reviewers advice and only used 1/2 a c of ketchup and 1/4 c light corn syrup. For me, there was more than enough sauce.

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
Wow, these totally fell apart, completely! I followed the recipe to the letter, and they just did not hold together at all. Tasted okay... but no better than the traditional recipe. Update: I believe the key to these being successful would be that you'd have to allow them to cool on the pan for a long time before taking them off. Today the cookies have hardened quite nicely. The taste better today too.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
This bread is fabulous. Surprisingly, even with 2 cups of sugar it isn't too sweet. I made it exactly according to the recipe and I'll make it again and again! Awesome!

Italian Cookies II

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
These are pretty tasty. The icing is good, but really sweet so it overpowers the ricotta a bit. It's really optional. Try it both ways.

Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
Very savory, and easily altered to your taste preference. I don't use ham very often: if I have it, I do, if I don't, it's great w/o it. I don't think the soup needs the bay leaf. Sometimes, I think people put them in becasue they are expected in soup... this one has so many flavors and spices already, it just gets lost and almost leaves a bitter aftertaste... Maybe it is mixing poorly with another spice. I add extra cayanne.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Wow... just wow. BAKE THIS CAKE! I screwed up by trying to make it in one pan and it had trouble baking all the way. But whatever, it is sooo good. Combined it with the cream cheese icing recipe, made with 1/2 the sugar called for. Divine.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
For me, it is tricky to get the timing down on these to make them firm. I think you should boil them for a long time. I have boiled them more and more as I make them and am up to 5 minutes and they get at least firm enough to hold to eat, but not firm enough to stack. I do follow the recipe exactly too. I stick with it because the taste is divine! The mixture of flavors is awesome.

Baked Scallops

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
This recipe is just okay. I have had better and I think the breadcrumbs need to be wet before they are baked. The way the recipe is written the crumbs are just sitting on the scallops and not sticking. They aren't as crispy as I prefer. If you add a bit of olive oil or melted butter to the topping, it raises the flavor of the parsley and provides a nice crispy topping.

Lentil Soup

This recipe is yum yum yum. I had no carrots- huge, I know. I used much more spinach too. I also drizzled red wine vinegar on top.

Butternut Squash Soup

Whoa. Yum. Very rich but so good. I used butter instead of margarine and Swanson broth rather than cubes. Try it!

German Red Cabbage

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
This is such a comfort food for me. It brings me home. I eat this on top of mashed potatoes and make it a meal when no one is home. Mmmm. I did not use the apples, added red wine vinegar and used ground cloves and ground pepper rather than whole cloves and peppercorns (just for ease). So good!
