Yellow Cake Made from Scratch

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
I live in Georgia and baked this in a free standing convectional oven. I am not sure if ovens & location vary in baking results.Anyways, This cake was easy and not over sugary with a perfect consistency . I put rasberry jam between layers and served the next day. What a cake! Next time I will layer with homemade pinnaple preserves,baste with brandy simple syrup & frost with coconut frosting for a fancy celebration.

Tostones (Fried Plantains)

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
oh my gosh, 2 cups of oil for 3 plantains?Lordy. Anyhow I made with less grease using Saflower oil and they are good .Plantains are anything but bland, people .You just need to sprinkle salt when they first come out pan. Garlic butter sauce makes great dipping sauce.

Creamy Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
Anyone who has baked even brownies from a box must know you use Unsalted butter to bake or in sweet recipes.Imagine dipping a spoon in a tub of lard and eating it with sprinkled sugar on top-that's frosting with shortening in it, Gross. So like Paula Deen, I opt for BUTTER anytime!Great recipe.Cheers!

Naan

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
Really delicious and easy to make. I followed recipe and it cooks easily on the grill and in a regular oven on a pizza stone. Next time maybe less sugar due to personal taste.I gave it four because there is a particular indian restaurant in my area that serves the most outstanding naan.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
I tried this in my old sojirushi and pressed quick bread (instead of basic bread)setting accidentally. It did a great job Kudos to the ol soji!!!But the bread seemed bland. Next time I will make adjustments for flavor.So good formula, but consider reviews of those who didn't change the entire thing(lol) but only made a few subs.

Vanilla Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
By far the best one I've made.I am not a fan of pumpkin pie but everyone else in my house is.However this one had Great flavor,great texture,and great presentation.Using just cinnamon is better than the all spice that goes into these pies.The only thing I didn't like staying put to change oven temps. But overall what awonderful pie!

Chocolate Pie I

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
Made this pie today. Great recipe except it is too sweet for my taste. I'll try using less sugar & a more authentic cocoa next time(rather than store brand).Not sure why people complained about thickening- I had no problem . I stirred with a whisk , left alone for about 30 secs. then continued whisking. Overall good backbone recipe.

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Fondant. I like the look of fondant so i tried making for the first time. It wasn't too complicated but i must say it is tough to work with fondant, the kneading isn't that much fun and it does not taste good.It is like an edible plastic.I believe next time I will use this for ornaments on the cake rather than to cover an entire cake.

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
I made two different times.It is true, dough is soggy.The first time I had to add more flour and kneaded(didn't realize you don't have to). They were beautiful but tasteless and heavier. The second time the dough was soft but did not have to add extra flour(and did not knead). The finished product was more like a muffin.Although the rolls turned out like picture, they were bland.I did not like.

Papa Drexler's Bavarian Pretzels

My first time making pretzels. It was fun. They were ok for having been made at home for the first time. I used hodgson mills yeast(incredible product)I think they will get better as I become more experienced.

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
Like JEMNI , i am also the minority , well in every sense of the word.The correct temp to bake, is 350' for 9 minutes.They turned out fine as far as presentation. They do melt in your mouth because they very buttery & powdery.They seem to lack sweetness (and i'm not crazy for lots of sugar)and the shortbread flavor. With all the rave reviews, i'm thinking i did something wrong, but can't figure what. Love shortbread but i'm not sure if i'll try this one again.

Bombay Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
Chiken was bland the rice was ok. It was not as exotic as I thought it would be. As an improvement to the recipe I will probably add cashews & chicken stock(instead of water) to the rice with dried fruit to accompany spicy curry chicken.
