Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2014
This was perfect!!! It had the right amount of ingredients, sugar content, perfect, vanilla perfect and milk, I used all the ingredients and their measurements as listed (besides using skin milk and no raisins) and it is sooo delicious! I'm so glad I tried this recipe. Really hit the spot. I also took the advice of a reviewer and mixed some of the pudding that was in the pot to the beaten egg and mixed a little and slowly poured in to the final cooking phase. Worked great. I love this recipe so comforting!!! Will make again!!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2014
I am novice when it comes to Tilapia, not sure why because I cook salmon all the time, I guess other fish intimidate me lol. Which is really silly. Anyways, bought some tilapia, needed something to make it tasty. This was it! The combination of parmesan and herbs plus lemon juice, is really very good. I was really surprised how fast and easy this was, as I used the broiler for the first time in my entire life. (our broiler has a bottom drawer, it's a gas oven and I have never used it, we're renting so I never thought of using it especially when most normal broilers are IN the oven on the top, above the shelf) I definitely will use this recipe again and the broiler!

Glorious Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2013
This turned out great, I am glad I used my instincts and only left it in for 35 minutes, as the top was almost burnt. I am not sure why it needs an hour at 325 degrees, but I have a gas oven maybe mine just baked faster. Anyways, I used this for the cake in my strawberry shortcake, it is very similar to what my grandma use to make and I knew she was with me in spirit as I was making this as it tasted almost as good! I left out the lemon, added 1 tsp vanilla extract and kept everything else the same and actually used cake flour. I still haven't perfected my strawberry shortcake but in time I know I will get it right and I will use this sponge cake recipe in the future. This cake has potential for a lot of different recipes.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
Great recipe. I too, had a ton of strawberries gifted to me and wanted to do something creative. I did scale it down to make 1 loaf instead of 2. I did 2 cups of strawberries (1 cup sliced, and 1 cup pureed) added 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 2 eggs, 1 and 1/2 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp salt and omitted the pecans. At 350 degrees for 45 min, the middle still was a little runny, I popped it back in for another 15 min. I think it came out great, nice and moist. My co-worker is raving about it right now and she's a hard one to win over. I want to make muffins with this too, I bet that will be awesome, and fill it with cheesecake or cream cheese frosting. I will use this recipe forever!

Zucchini Bites

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2012
I meant to review this recipe a long time ago. I think it turned out great, pretty delish! My co-worker even commented on them, as I shared them with her, she suggested I make them for a potluck which I am going to.

Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
I did not care for this recipe. My gut instinct told me to discard the seeds and not add it into the stuffing. I didn't listen and of course I ended up not liking it. But it wasn't just because of the seeds, it was also because of the crunch factor with the zuchinni. I steamed it a little before to avoid it, guess I didn't steam it enough, it was still crunchy after it was baked. Next time, I'll omit the seeds and steam the zuchinni longer.

Tie-Dye Fruity Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
After reading the reviews, I was really hesitant on making these. I didn't want crumby or gummy cupcakes but I gave it a shot. I was pleasantly suprised as they turned out great! I was really precautious though, and didn't put a whole 1/4 cup of jello in each bowl, maybe a half of a 1/4 or less. I really wanted the color and not necessarily the flavor, but even with that little amount, they did taste fruity! I also messed up on the colors, I went to the store after meeting some friends at the bar, and I picked up orange, raspberry and lemon...my bad but hey they still turned out great. This time I will get the colors right and buy lime, I am making these for a potluck next week and I'm looking forward to it!

Pumpkin Roll I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
I am so proud of myself! I did this and it turned out GREAT! It was really easy, I did line the pan with parchment paper, makes it soo easy just to flip over onto a towel. I am not a great baker, in fact I rate myself as extremely amature! But took this to work, and it was gone by noon. Because I love the ratio of this recipe, I am going to try and substitute other ingredients, like pureed cranberry...and make a whip cream frosting, I'm not sure if it will turn out, but it seems like you can mix and match stuff. But anyways, Love this recipe!

Pumpkin Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
I'm not sure what happened but as soon as I put the white chocolate chips in and the vanilla extract it turned to DUST! Dry crumbly and resembled BROWN SUGAR!!! Followed this recipe to a T...ahhhh I'm soooo mad!!

Swiss Chicken Casserole II

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
I did this recipe exactly as stated and it came out really dry and crispy. It had no moisture in it whatsoever and it was a total fail. I didn't read the reviews for alterations cause I didn't have the time but next time I will. This one was a miss.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
I made a few alterations as I read all the reviews and chose to do it the way the very first review appears after the recipe. I whipped up a batch of heavy whip cream and mixed it with the chocolate pudding, which by the way 1/2 cup of water to pudding makes it waaayy too sticky and hard to mix, so the next batch I added 1 whole cup of milk. Anyway, I did it like this: brownie, caramel, choc pudding/cream, cool whip, choc pudding/cream, then layered whip cream on top. I didn't continue with the cool whip cause to me cool whips nasty and I just couldn't bring myself to top it off with it so real whip cream I did. It tasted really good and I am glad the way it turned out. Next time and there will be a next time, I am going to use chocolate mousse, (theres a great recipe on allrecipes, amazing, its my go to for mousse always!) and white chocolate mousse, and keep the whip cream and the caramel.

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
I liked this recipe although I gave it a 4 because I think there was too much wine for the gravy. I put in a packet like instructed and mixed it up hoping for it to thicken but it didn't. I told my bf oh well, its not exactly a gravy but he was like thats ok its like an au jus lol. I don't really like pork very much either but I think this dressed it up a bit. It also reminds me a little of Beef Bourignon without the beef lol. I think my pork days are over but still it was pretty tasty despite the the gravy.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
This was pretty good. At first I was going to give it 4 starts because I didn't think it was spectacular, but the boyfriend seemed to like it and I really did too. I use half mayonaisse and half sourcream mixt because I don't like using a ton of mayonaisse for things. Overall really good and I wil make this again.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
This is my very first time making french toast. (I know, I just started cooking and enjoying it lol). So I can't really compare it to other recipes, but it came out perfect. Tastes like great french toast. I would note though, that I did change the servings to 4 and with that, the mixture only soaked 2 slices of the bread that I had prepared. Next time I will double the recipe to make it for 4.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
So made this for the family and everyone really didn't like it. I'm pretty sure it was the balsamic vinegar...I guess you have to like it. But I have to say that my boyfriend and I love this balsamic vinegar marinated artichoke at a restaurant we go to, I figured balsamic vinegar could work with everything which is why I tried this recipe but I guess not.

Blackberry BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
To die for!!! I have never made home made BBQ sauce and I was so thankful that I chose this recipe to start!! It is soo delicious and the flavoring is great!! I added a few things though to give it an added kick: paprika, hot sauce, salt and pepper, real mustard (not powdered) and 2 gloves of crushed garlic. It wasn't too sweet and it added the right tang that I wanted, my boyfriend who rarely compliments me on my cooking said it was really good. Yay! Thanks for the recipe!
