5-Minute Microwave Nutella® Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2015
For what it is, it's pretty good. It needs more chocolate flavor and I might add more vanilla next time. I didn't have self riding flour, so I added 1/8tsp baking soda. Other additions include leaving out the salt and just adding a pinch and 3 tbs of Nutella. I might give this one more go and see if I can make it more chocolatey. Maybe chocolate chips?

These were pretty frickin' awesome. I love how you can put just about anything in them. Perfect for a fast breakfast to pop from freezer into microwave.

Graham Cracker Crust I

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2014
Great taste, but mine needed more butter. I might try cold butter next time because mine never got crumbly, it never held together. Will try again and report back.

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
I took this recipe and used it liberally. I had dried black beans on hand which I boiled in slightly salty water until done. In another pan, I sauteed some italian sausage and garlic. Then I added a quart of chicken broth, leftover cabbage, carrots, some potatoes, chopped hot peppers and cooked til potatoes and carrots were soft. Simple, cheap, healthy.

Trishie's Chinese-Style Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
I added lime juice and used rice wine vinegar instead of red wine per suggestions. I added more hoisin and used sesame oil for some of the olive oil. I put over a salad with chopped lettuce, cabbage and carrot. Very tasty and healthy. I added cilantro to both dressing and salad.

Nutella® Hazelnut Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2014
As chocolate chip cookies, these are great. I agree with others though that the "nut" of nutella was missing. Maybe adding the hazelnuts or just a touch more nutella would help. Great cookie though.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2014
I added a touch of clove, nutmeg and more cinnamon and vanilla. I used a really good sourdough bread and soaked it in between batches as it cooked to soften the bread. I was out of maple syrup, so a friend suggested honey. Yes and Yes. possibly the best french toast ever.

The Last Caesar Salad Recipe You'll Ever Need

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2014
This makes a nice thick dressing. Add a little more fluid for less thick. I added about double the lemon juice, a dash of hot sauce, and extra pepper. Perfect on some romaine salad with a chopped tomato and cucumber. I would give this 5 stars, but I thought the dressing was a touch thick and it needs slight adjustments on the ratios.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
This recipe needs a little work. I think it would have greatly benefited from some fresh flavor and maybe an acid to overcome the soy flavor. Next time I might add cilantro or a touch of rice wine vinegar. I breaded the chicken like others suggested, but crowded the pan because I am impatient and hate to do things in batches. I do think it would have been better with a crispier exterior on the chicken. Overall, a very simple recipe with ingredients I almost always have on hand. Very versatile, I added broccoli, sliced garlic, and water chestnuts.

Plum Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2014
I added cinnamon and all spice. It's hard to judge the sugar. Either A. follow the recipe exactly and serve with ice cream or add sugar til the raw plums taste sweet which will probably be more if you have fresh plums from the tree like I did.

How to Make a Tuna Melt

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2014
I used this recipe for simple tuna sandwiches. I added one clove of grated garlic and omitted the onion. I only had tuna in water. It was perfect. Sambal & capers. I would have never guessed. Yum.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2014
i added red chili pepper flakes, thyme, 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup mayo and made this for 6 chicken breasts. I did squeeze out the artichokes, but there was a small amount of water in the bottom. I do agree this might be better with marinated artichokes, but I didn't have those on hand. 4 cloves shredded garlic and some salt and pepper instead of garlic salt. YUM. Served with sauteed kale.
