Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
a friend invited herself over for lunch so i needed something i could make in advance and not have to worry about it. i was skeptical about this recipe at first because of the water but went ahead with it because of it's great reviews. i substituted the 1/4 in the egg yolk/sugar mixture with milk for a creamier consistency and i used 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. wow! it's so good! next time i'll use all milk and a better chocolate!

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
these were pretty good but not very flavorful. i used just 1/2 a cup of sugar and added 5 small bananas, 1 tsp. vanilla and some cinnamon...still now enough flavor. these muffins get 4 stars because they're not dense. i have a favorite butter-filled banana bread recipe but sometimes it's just too heavy. i think by adding a bit more sugar than the 1/2 (maybe brown sugar) and some more spices these will be a 5 star

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
this recipe results in a gorgeous, silky dough when the yeast is proofed, dough kneaded for 10 mins. and allowed to rise for an hour. i would've made it without allowing it to rise but the hubby was skeptical. i made a chicken alfredo pizza with it tonight and it's yummy! instead of red sauce i used alfredo sauce, some grilled chicken and cheeses.

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
i used this recipe to make cupcakes (2 1/2 dz. exactly) and they were a huge hit. i added more spice to the cake with some 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. i also reduced the oil to 1 cup and used 1/4 orange juice. i frosted the cupcakes using a pumpkin cream cheese frosting recipe i found on the country living magazine site. sooo good!

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
I prefer a chewier brownie so I reduced the flour like most suggested. Unfortunately, I was not impressed by these brownies. They were not very chocolatey (I added the last square of Bakers chocolate that I had along with the cocoa just because) and they were too cake like for me. I also found that they were a bit salty for me as well. The batter was a beautiful mousse-like cream and the texture of the brownie, when finished, was nice although the edges puffed up more than in the center. If I make these again I think I'd add chocolate chips and maybe try less egg (?).

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
everything was going fantastic until i tasted them...they were bland but i think just a smidge more salt would be fine but the main issue was they came out dense and heavy (with weight). i could've thrown them through a window. it had to be something i did...maybe i needed to let them rise more?
