Chinese Napa Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
This is by far my favorite ramen coleslaw recipe. The soy and sesame oil really add something... That said I have NEVER added 1/2c sesame seeds. I have always been out when making this recipe, but I still couldn't imagine using more than 1T of sesame seeds. The napa cabbage is great in this too.

Simple Chicken Brine

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
If using table salt or canning salt use half of what is called for if kosher is listed in recipe. I have unintentionally brined a whole chicken for over 24 hrs (when dinner plans changed) and it was not over salted or mushy. I also do not rinse my birds after brining and have not noticed any effects. To make sure the salt and sugar disolve I fill a half gallon container about half full with the warmest water I can get out of the tap. Add salt and sugar, stir until disolved. Add ice to container, stir to cool water down. Strain ice if desired and fill container to bring to 1gal then add soy and other ingredients.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
The kids really enjoyed it, I thought it was good... I made them first exactly as directed and then with chocolate cake mix. We all preferred the chocolate, but I also added a small package of chocolate pudding to the cake mix which made the chocolate cupcakes much more moist. I used a 1 tbspn scoop (ice cream style) to scoop the cookie dough. The first time I pushed them down into the cake batter all the way (after freezing) and the "cookie" ended up on the bottom. The second time I put them on top and just slightly pushed in and they stayed in the center.

Bar-B-Que Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I made this to put on chopped chicken sandwiches when I realized I was out of Sweet Baby Rays Sauce. For convenience and speed I would rate this 5 stars, for flavor three. It was good, but not great... I did not make any changes the recipe.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
This was pretty good. I used Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce and served over mashed potatoes. I shredded the meat and threw it back in the pot for 15-20 mins. The sauce wasn't thick, but enough so that it stuck to the meat...

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
This is a very good cookie. I like the balance of the almond and vanilla. The almond seems a bit overwhelming in the batter, but baked is perfect, imo. It is very sweet, but not overly sweet for a cookie. For a moist cookie: pull it from the oven when it looks slightly wet in the center (just barely under done) and wait one minute before removing it from the cookie sheet.

Hot Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This was okay, not spectacular. An okay way to use up left over turkey, certainly edible, but nothing I will be itching to make again.

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
These were really good. I patted them down with my fingers before baking, as suggested by another reviewer, and baked until just BARELY starting to brown - still looking doughy in the center. Came out looking beautiful and tasting great. Almost exactly 4 dzn cookies.

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
This was very good -- as adjusted according to suggestions by Trish (nov 18th 08 review). Added dash of ground gloves, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp or so of fresh nutmeg. Baked at 325 for 55 mins over a pan of water. Cracked oven and let cool in oven about an hour. Didn't have time to put in fridge for several hours, as she suggested. (No cracks) I also held back around a 1/4 c of the pumpkin batter and drizzled 1/2 c of the plain batter on the top, then the 1/4 c of pumpkin batter, then the rest of the plain batter and swirled from there. Looked great. I used vanilla wafers and almonds in the crust, as that was what I had on hand. I would prefer the pecans - but the almonds were okay too. All in all this was a very good cheesecake, with the changes!

Warm Apple Buttermilk Custard Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
I thought this was a really good apple pie, and I usually don't like apple pie. My husband thought it was good too. I used three apples (fist sized) and only used about 3/4 of the topping as it seemed plenty thick (and it was). I used the directed amount of sugar and thought it was fine. It was sweet, but no sweeter than pie should be, it is pie after all! I added the apples with the sugar/cinnamon cooking liquid to the bottom of the pie plate. It only filled the plate about 1/3 of the way. Which appeared to be too little. The custard filled the rest of the plate to the top. I initially thought there wouldn't be enough apple in the pie, but I thought it was a very nice balance between fruit and custard. I did under cook mine a bit, but it still tasted great.

Grandma's Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
I made this for my son's fourth birthday. I used it to make a train and cover with fondant. It was dense enough to hold its shape and still tasted great. It was very moist. I frosted underneath the fondant with a cream cheese buttercream. I would highly recommend this.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
Wow! These were like pancakes from a restaurant. My husband used the word phenomenal. I did have to thin the batter down a bit with milk, but the taste was stellar! This will be my permanent pancake recipe!!
