Alex's Raw Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
I'm a pretty good cook, and I've never had trouble with any recipe on this site, but this one just did not work out. I followed the recipe very closely and used fresh ingredients, but when I tasted it, it was terrible. I could taste the avocado, the lemon juice, and the banana, and it was NOT a good combination. I ended up adding some vanilla and finally 1/4 to 1/2 cup of powdered sugar just to make it slightly palatable. I'm all for health benefits, and our family eats pretty healthy on a daily basis, but healthy pudding does no good if it goes straight into the garbage. I'm giving it two stars only because it was salvageable (although it remains to be seen whether or not my kids will eat it).

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
I've made this recipe too many times to count, and it always turns out fantastic. I've never had a problem with curdling. I don't know if it makes a difference or not, but after adding the sugar to the eggs, I let it sit for 10-15 min so that the sugar dissolves a little bit more. I microwave the butter so that it's half-melted, then stir it until it's all liquid, and let it cool a bit before adding it to the egg-lemon mixture. I also really like that the recipe is so easy to scale down, and frequently if I need a small amount for a topping, I'll make 1/3 or 2/3 of a recipe. It almost seems like cheating that the best lemon curd I've ever made is also, by far, the easiest!

Baked Pineapple

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
This recipe was perfect for what I was looking for! I wanted a pineapple dessert, and this one really hit the spot. The last time I made this, I was doubling the recipe when I realized I only had one can of pineapple. I added a can of peaches, drained and diced, instead. A little bit of toasted coconut on top after baking, and we had the perfect tropical treat.
