Fast and Easy Tofu Lo-Mein

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
Super easy and cheap to make (perfect for my single self). I only use the Oriental flavored ramen, because I think it tastes better (tried beef, spicy, and chicken). I can whip it out in 10 min (since I only fry the tofu), and all 3 are cooking at the same time: Noodles in a small pot, veggies in a bowl covered with seran wrap & in the microwave for about 3.5 min, and the tofu in a pan. I drain the noodles and toss everything in the pan with the tofu and flavor with the seasoning packet. Super easy and cheap (veggies cost about $1.80 and last for 3 meals, tofu $1 and last for 2, and ramen? really 6 for a buck at the 99cent store X-D). Minus one star because as good as it is, its sodium heavy.

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
Pure heaven! This is became an instant favorite at my family's Thanksgiving dinner. I doubled everything, but only used one onion (otherwise it'll be sooo onion-y). The mayo came in 15oz or extra large, and since I have no use for mayo, the 15oz worked fine! Maybe I had small broccoli, or just because I love broccoli, I ended up using twice as much (which was 4x the original, lol, or about 9 crowns). This is fantastic; it does have 5 stars all around for a reason!! note: I made it the night before and let it set in the fridge. Then tossed it in the morning, and tossed it again before serving. The 'slaw-esque' mixture will settle on the bottom!

Claire's Yummy Crepes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
OMG So easy and delicious! I added a 1/4tsp of vanilla extract like many recommended and it was perfect! I also used Silk Pure Coconut Milk (original flavor) since I don't drink regular milk and it was AMAZING!! A bit thick, so I might add a little more milk next time, but the crepes themselves put IHOP to SHAME!! Thanks for the amazing recipe!!! I ate the first one while I was cooking them (had to sample the product, lol!) and I had the hardest time not eating them as they were coming off the pan. I made about 10 6-7in" crepes and at first used a bit of butter to coat the pan but then did without for the last 3 and they came out fine. Had mine with nutella only on two and whipped creme on another two and I'll save the others for breakfast tomorrow! Now I want to get some lingonberry jelly for Swedish crepes!! *drool*

Scrambled Egg Brunch Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
This was decent. I have no doubt that if I brought it to a potluck it would go in seconds and people would rave about it. BUUTT for me, it would have been better if something other than those tasty croissants was used as a bread. I've had a bakery version of this and it was AMAZING. So if I can figure out a way to used another type of bread maybe it would work for me. As it is, I much perfer croissants plain or with a bit of nutella, with the eggs and veggies I added (mushrooms and green onions) it didn't taste right to me. This is of course, a personal opinion, the recipe was easy to follow and make. Maybe with biscuits it would taste better...

Pina Colada Rum Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S! This is soooo good! I couldn't find coconut pudding (the asian ones look more like gelatin than pudding to me), so I used vanilla pudding and 4 tsp of coconut extract. I also put in an extra tbsp of dark rum and coconut rum in the frosting. Super yummy. I've made this twice and both times have had rave remarks from my guests. Definitely a rum taste, but not too overpowering. Tastes just like it's namesake- a Pina Colada!

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
Simple and delicious. I used 2 tbsp of beef boullion powder in lieu of vegetable broth (dissolved in 1 cup of hot water + another cup of plain water). I didn't use onions but the fresh thyme really made the dish GREAT! I still rinsed my quinoa (which was tough in itself) til the water was mostly clear. Next time I will use a little less water to cook because I didn't dry them after I rinsed and I could tell they had retained a bit of water. It did take maybe 25-30min to cook on low which was fine since I wasn't in a hurry. This is a really great and simple recipe, I'm happy I found something yummy and healthy to change up my white rice diet, lol. And since I'm part Peruvian, I feel a bit more connected to the ancestors :)

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
Super easy to make, and it did come out shiny. I didn't have corn syrup so I made some by boiling 1/3 c. water with 1 1/4 c. sugar. I don't think I'll do that again, it tasted a little "interesting." I only used a little bit more milk (probably 1 tbsp), and it spread really well. I used coconut extract in lieu of almond and it was wonderful- just a hint of flavor.

The Best Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
You have not glimpsed heaven until you try this pudding... *happy sigh* I brought this for Thanksgiving and everyone was singing my praises, lol. I made the recipe to a key, using reduced fat 'Nillas and low fat Cool Whip- at first it tasted off, but since I made it the night before, the next day it was perfect (I guess it just needed to mingle with the 'Nillas and bananas). I layered them in a glass bowl, and used about 5 bananas, but next time I will use 6-7 for extra banana goodness. 5 stars for a reason my friends!

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
Scrumpdiddliyumious! :D I doubled the recipe exactly and took this to Thanksgiving dinner. They were a hit!! I did take a hint and rolled the caps in melted butter before stuffing, it really made them "mouth-watering." A sprinkle of parmesan cheese before baking for 15 minutes was perfect. Yup, 15 was all I needed.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
This is the best! I didn't have meat hammer (hahah what I call it) and I was lucky that pollo milanesa was on sale at my down the street latino market. This is thin sliced chicken breast. So all I had to do was roll it up with some lunch meat ham and cheese and it was GOOD TO GO! The sauce is incredibly flavorful and I would recommend making extra. It tastes so good on mashed potatoes! I really couldn't believe how easy and tasty this recipe is. I can even make just one serving for myself quickly. A real winner this one!

French Toast II

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
I'll be honest, I didn't even READ the directions. I've made french toast before, so I just wanted to see what else besides egg and milk you could use. This was DELICIOUS!! Since I made it just for myself, I used 2 eggs, just under 1/4 cup milk, probably 1/2 tbl of brown sugar and two shakes of cinnamon (I didn't measure the milk, sugar, or cinnamon, just what seemed right). I didn't have any nutmeg, but it tasted great with a bit of maple sryup. Oh, I also cut two big slices of Chullah bread -mmMMMMmmm.... Will definitely be using these ingredients from now on.
