Waffles I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
I made this recipe exactly as it says except i took one users advice and did the egg whites seperate and then folded them in. I was almost certain that it would make them light and cispy but instead almost the moment they came off the waffle iron they become soggy. I even added cinnamon and extra sugar to prevent them from being blan but it didnt help. These waffles were not only soggy but very blan.

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
i did not try this exact recipe but i am rating it for the idea of wrapping my asparagus with bacon. i used my own recipe that i was orignally planning but i wanted to add a little something else to it and this recipe helped there. i am sure this recipe tastes great because it does sound it.

Crispy Fish

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
I did not have enough potato flakes so i used 1 1/2 cups of potato flakes and 1 1/2 cups flour. i also used salmon and then deep friend it. this was very crispy and delicious. oh and i also addded 1/2 cup italian style bread crumbs. This is a very good recipe, the only thing i would highly reccomend is not soaking the fish in water. dry it really well and then dip in an egg and milk mixture then coat with dry mix.

White Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
I am only rating the frosting 5 stars because I did not bother to make the cake. I was wanting the frosting for my chocolate cake. Maybe one day I will try this cake recipe but not today. The frosting was definately worth 5 stars, it may not be the best ever but pretty darn good. It actually reminds me a lot of my buttercream frosting but made with white chocolate and a bit less flour. The key to the frosting is to make sure that the butter is at room temperature as well as the flour mixture. I used both white chocolate squares and white chocolate chips and do not think that either really matter. When beating it may seem like it is taking a while to get to the right consistency but you will get there. If you are having trouble getting it right then just let it sit for a while to cool even longer but personally i think that it works best at room temperature and not completely cooled. This frosting spreads well and I do not think anything needs to be changed about it.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
The first thing I noticed is that just about every person making these were changing the recipe to make them better so therefore they are not rating this specific recipe. I am only giving this recipe 3 stars because there are a few things I noticed that is a big no no. First for the perfect moist cupcake you should use oil instead of butter. While butter does taste better the oil will give it the moistness that is needs. The second thing was the ratio of pumpkin. I added an extra 1/4 cup because I knew it would need it. Also it does not matter whether or not the eggs are at room temperature. I use them straight from the fridge. Because I am adding extra pumpkin I just make sure that the spices are not level but instead are slightly mounded. One last thing that I add is 1/4 cup applesauce because that will also give them a great texture. To cook them, you should ALWAYS bake cupcakes at 350 degrees so they cook more evenly and then you should not bake them for 25 minutes, otherwise you will overbake them. I cook them for 19 minutes and they come out perfect. This recipe does have potential but I have created my own recipe since I have more then 10 years of baking experience.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
The only reason why I did not give this 5 stars is because of the noodle/cheese ratio like many other reviewers have stated. At first when I saw how few noodles there were I freaked out and boiled extra just in case, turns out I thought I needed them because there was so much sauce and the sauce was thin. Well that was a mistake adding extra noodles because after it was baked it came out a little dry for my liking so luckily i reserved some sauce to pour over my mac & cheese. This recipe tasted great and if you want cheesy and creamy mac and cheese then DONT add extra noodles.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
This meatloaf made just as is without any variations I would give 0 stars but that is not possible. I had high hopes for this recipe because there were so many great reviews but as I was making it I knew it would not taste well. First off it is VERY sweet. So sweet that it puts me off. Also it has a mushy texture & I think it would taste bettwen with bread crumbs instead of crackers. My husband is a fan of almost any meatloaf and his exact words were, "it is a grade below frozen meatloaf." I would just stick to a simple recipe.

Corn and Egg Flower Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
I did not add the corn because it just didnt seem tradtional to me. I also did not have white pepper so i used black and wow was that a mistake. This soup is only ok. It has a lot of room for improvement. It was very blan and not as thick as i would expect the soup to be. I am definately going to try something better.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
Very delicious. I have been using the same buttermilk pancake recipe for years and i just decided to try something different that didnt require buttermilk and i have to say that these are very good. All i did was double the recipe. They are fluffy and sweet and oh so good.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
This lemonade was VERY good. I made a few changes but my changes did not change the overall taste of this recipe. I cut back on the sugar by 1/4 cup to total 1 1/2 cups. I also did not wait for the mixture to get to room temperature. I took it right off the stove and put in several large blocks of ice and put it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes until cooled. I only added 6 cups of water because I added ice to cool the mixture and I didnt want it to become too watery. I served it chilled over ice and added my own strawberry puree. I took about 2 cups of frozen whole unsweetened strawberries and put them in a food processor while still frozen. I processed them until they were chopped and then added them to a blender with about 1/2 cup of water and 3 tbsp. sugar. I blended it until smooth and added about 2 tbsp. puree per glass of lemonade and topped it with whipped cream. My only complaint is that it doesnt make enough for an average family of 4 who loves lemonade, it was gone ine 1 day :)

Thirty Minute Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This cake tastes nothing like boxed yellow cake. I cant seem to find a good yellow cake receipe. I was worried right after I made it because even though the batter tastes alright it didnt look yellow at all which just didnt seem normal. When it came out of the oven it was flat and VERY dry. It reminded me of a sponge cake because it was so dry and airy.

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This cake is very moist and fluffy. It came out better then most cakes that have eggs in it. My husband was afraid to taste it but said it was delicious and coming from him that means something. I think this will be the chocolate cake that I use from now on.

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
It is absolutely right that you need to add the bakking cocoa for this frosting not to taste as sweet. I added 3 tbsp. of cocoa instead of the 2 and I also added an extra tbsp. of milk because it was far to thick. This recipe also doesnt make very much so I had to double it. I thought it tasted a lot like buttercream because of the rich buttery taste. There isnt anything I would change about it.

Heavenly Hash Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
Everything was great about these but the only reason why i didnt give it 5 stars is because i have to store them in my refrigerator because they literally start to become very soft within 10 minutes of keeping them out.
