Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
Incredible chocolate cake, hands down the best from scratch chocolate cake I've ever made. Moist and rich with chocolate flavor; good enough to eat on its own or frost (as I did) with fluffy PB frosting from this site. When I started making the cake, I went to add the sugar and didn't realize I was 1/2 cup short. I still decided to forge ahead and the results are STILL amazing even with the reduced sugar. Highly recommended recipe!! Thanks for sharing :)

Mom's Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
Great base recipe and super-simple to make with ingredients most people have on hand. I did find that this recipe lacked the "wow" apple flavor I was looking for, so I think next time I'll add some sliced or chopped apple to the mix just to make up for that. nonetheless, I will make this again since my husband and I really enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing!

Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
Good recipe to start with, but it does need some adjustments for more flavor. I did saute some onion as other reviewers did, and I did use fire roasted tomatoes and fresh green chilies. Finished it off with some pecorino that needed to be used up and enjoyed it very much with some crusty bread. Quick and easy for sure, just make some adjustments to avoid blandness.

Butterscotch Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
Really like how easy this is, and of course the possible combinations are endless. I did find that the butterscotch chips were essential to getting that flavor (although maybe I am at fault for using a generic pudding mix, I wonder if going with Jell-O brand would have made a difference?) nonetheless I found that most of the butterscotch flavor came from the chips rather than the cake. The almonds add a nice touch, and my roommates and I really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing!

Honey-Topped Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
Delicious! The honey is an excellent addition, this is definitely a more decadent baked sweet potato. Walnuts or, ideally, pecans would be an excellent addition. Thanks for sharing!

Spicy Yogurt Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
Nice for lunch, especially if you want something creamy but still want to be healthy. This would also be good as a dip for a veggie plate. Thanks for sharing!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
INCREDIBLE salad, and I didn't even need all that sugar. Sure it's delicious with it, but its also five-star worthy without it. I enjoyed every bite of this for lunch on monday, and proceeded to have it for lunch every day for the rest of the week (and I rarely feel that way about a salad). Thanks for sharing, this was awesome!

Oatmeal with Apples

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
Healthy, delicious, and can be easily taken care of in the microwave. I used old fashioned oats and replaced some of the apple juice with half & half because I wanted it creamier; other than that i stuck to the recipe. Will be making this one again, thanks for sharing!

Unsloppy Joes

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
Pretty good, but I would make some changes next time. I would not use as much of the diced tomatoes, I'd use ketchup instead of tomato paste, and maybe add some mustard and increase the vinegar. The idea is really great, I enjoyed it mostly because it used beans rather than TVP or some other meat substitute. I'd cut back on the pepper, not because I can't take spicy stuff (I love it) but because cutting down on the pepper balances the flavors more. Thanks for sharing your recipe, will be making it again!

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
five stars for the flavor, but the method is only 3 stars. There's really no need to have so many pots and make it so complicated. saute some onion until soft and then add the asparagus, cook that up for a few minutes and then add your broth. bring that to a boil (add some black pepper if you like) and get the asparagus really soft and tender. Stick an immersion blender in there and blend away until smooth. add some yogurt and milk and blend again. garnish with grated parmesan and some reserved asparagus tips. DELISH! thanks for sharing :)

Garlic and Artichoke Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
I really enjoyed this pizza; but I just knew colby/monterey-jack wouldn't be a good fit for my tastes so I used a blend of italian cheeses and finished it off with a sprinkle of romano. I love artichokes and can't get enough garlic so this was a winner in my book. Next time I'll add some oregano, basil, or red pepper flakes as various reviewers have mentioned. thanks for sharing!

Pasta with Baby Broccoli and Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
Delicious and healthy; I loved all the flavors in this and the fava beans are a nice addition that helps keep you full. Basil would be a great garnish when in season. Thanks for sharing!

Jim's Cheddar Onion Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
This was my first time trying any type of soda bread and I really enjoyed it. I did have to add more buttermilk as other reviewers have mentioned but that wasn't a big deal. I did feel that this was a bit bland and while I would make it again I would increase the amount of onion (I used green onions) and cheddar, I might even add something extra like some sun dried tomotoes. Overall it was pretty good; thanks for sharing!

Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
In terms of flavor, this soup is AMAZING. It is so comforting and creamy; a fantastic comfort food. The great thing (for me) was that I could use light sour cream, 2%milk, and cut the butter down to 1/2 cup and still have great results. I didn't add bacon (I'm a vegetarian). My only problem is with the amount of liquid. It simply didn't call for enough liquid; as written the recipe is so thick its hard to stir and definitely not "soup." I just added some veggie broth and *ta da*! perfect :) That's not a big problem in my book but it is something I hope others look out for. Regardless, this is a soup I will make again. Thanks for sharing!

Graham Griddle Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
I really enjoyed these, but I did find that I needed to add more graham cracker crumbs to get the flavor to come through. I kept the rest of the ingredients the same and it made for a nice breakfast and a good way to use up some extra graham cracker crumbs I had from making a pie earlier. Thanks for sharing!

Butterscotch Brownies III

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
This rating is for the brownies only. The frosting got such consistently bad reviews I decided it wasn't worth the time or ingredients. This is absolutely sweet enough without the frosting; to get more of that butterscotch flavor (rather than just brown sugar) I added about 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips. The brownies are quite good; it does help to cut back on the flour a bit (I cut back to 2/3 cup) and I cut back on the sugar since I knew I was adding the chips. The reviews were all over the place on this one and everybody who made it as written gave it really poor reviews, so I was apprehensive but I love butterscotch so I gave it a shot w/the changes mentioned above (a compilation of the most popular adjustments from other reviews) and I think it came out pretty good. I'd make it again but with those changes. Thanks for sharing your recipe; it was great for my sweet tooth fix :)

Pumpkin Chipotle Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
I absolutely loved this, and I really wouldn't change a thing. I would advise that people be careful with the chipotle peppers if they are sensitive to spicy foods. This is definitely for people who are adventurous when it comes to new flavor combos. I love trying new things so I really enjoyed it; my fiance, however, wasn't as impressed and found it "too weird." Thanks for sharing this one, I will be making it again!

Cajun Corn Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
Very good soup but I think it needs more in the spice department. Better to use an excellent cajun spice blend for this recipe. I also didn't bother blending it at any point and I think it turned out just fine. Thanks for sharing!
