Mocha Truffle Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Awesome cookie-- I put 2 tbsp of instant coffee (yum!) but they would be better with chopped nuts or something similar. Like someone else mentioned, not my favorite but would definitely make again. Next time I'll try improvising and add fun ingredients like nuts or butterscotch chips, maybe even marshmallows.. Mm..

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
I didn't make the frosting (pecans are SO expensive, who knew?) but did make the cake. It was good, but for all the work.. I don't know. I wasn't super thrilled. Not too different from baking a simple cake-mix, but I'm sure the frosting really makes the cake, so maybe I'm not one to rate this. If I make it again I will def have to make the frosting recipe as well.

Asparagus Chicken Crepes

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
These are pretty much... enchiladas. Which if you're into, you will love these. But if you're expecting delicious French food or a European delight, these are not them. The simple crepe recipe was fantastic, though!! Crepes in general are the best. But I probably won't make this again... sorry recipe inventor! My boyfriend enjoyed them. But I'm sure he would've loved several things much more than this.. (made for his b.day, so was esp disappointed, I was just expecting different, not enchiladas.)

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2010
Mine didn't rise too much, but enough to fill. I also had no parchment paper so had to put them on slightly greased pans. The bottoms did burn, but I was convinced to still bring them to a family event. Sure enough, they were gone in an instant. Even with burnt bottoms! I was thrilled, but will definitely use parchment paper next time.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2010
I feel bad giving these only 2 stars, because I did make changes. I used "I can't believe it's not butter" and a brown sugar/splenda mix. Also, I used SUGAR-FREE + FAT-FREE pudding, which I wondered about.. not sure if that's what made these weird, but these are a strange texture. Soft in a gross way. Others ate these right up, but I had to alter my second batch by adding 1/2 cup peanut butter, more sugar, a pack of m&m's, and a bit of baking powder. These were supposed to be for other families, but they're just not good enough to give as gifts. I promise to make these to the T next time, and will change the rating if they're honestly good.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
Awesome. This worked using olive oil instead of butter. Also used rice milk. Quick + fantastic!

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
With adjustments, 5 stars. Not the prettiest fries, but so good-- I love them to taste like sweet potatoes (not seasoning) and they are wonderful. I just don't like the process of cutting the sweet potatoes into fries. I did try making these with the seasoning, and that deserved 1 star, definitely recommend leaving that out. You also don't need a lot of oil.

Death By Garlic

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
This left me feeling confused. I LOVE garlic, and was expecting to taste it, but even with 10 cloves.. I didn't get that taste. It was pretty bland. I'll try this again in the future, and if it turns out I just did something wrong, the rating will go up. But it really was missing a lot of flavor. (It's good, just not great.)

Sweet Potato Cookies II

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
I love healthy food, and this didn't do it for me. They taste biscuity. Love the concept, I just think they need some tweaking.

Norwegian Pancakes - Pannekaken

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
I had to add a tsp of oil to my ingedients after ruining the first one. Also added a tsp of cardamom. Turned out great. I didn't taste them, but those who did thought they were delicious. Update: I tried one, and 1 tsp of cardamom is way too much for my taste. I second the notion that you should be very careful if you add that spice. I've never been a fan of it outside of certain breads. But since the recipe doesn't actually call for the spice, it still deserves 4 stars.

Pistachio Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
I didn't try these personally, but I made everyone else rate them from 1-5, and every person gave them a 4. Hence the rating. I also give the recipe a 4 because it's so easy to make. The only problem is that right after they come out of the oven, it's easy to ruin the top shell, I think they need about 5 min to cool before cutting them in half. Great recipe, though, and yes, they are quite large.

Holiday Ribbon Gelatin

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Hmm.... why on earth does the middle layer have mayonnaise?? I don't understand it's purpose, you can taste it. Next time I will definitely leave that out. I did alter it (used strawberry soy yogurt, extra mini marshmallows--about 1.5 cups + lite miracle whip.) Perfect texture, and very pretty, but never again will I put any kind of mayo in it. The marshmallow & jello mixed together + either cream cheese or yoghurt probably would have been just fine. Next time.. (which there will be, it's good enough to make again.)

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Yum. I love spinach, and these were perfect. I did not use ANY butter or cheese, and instead used a bit of olive oil, and rice milk in place of real milk. Sauteed onion and garlic + a few shakes of onion and garlic powder, then once I added cooked frozen spinach, I put in a few shakes of Italian seasoning. Will be making again and again.

Instant Pistachio Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
SO easy. Next time I'll add chopped walnuts and that's all it needs. I used both sugar-free pudding and sugar-free whipped topping. And call me crazy, but I found this to be especially delicious when I dipped those square-type pretzels in it. Try it.. I dare you.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Delish! I had a "phew" moment after reading reviews. All I had were black beans and didn't know if they'd be any good, luckily so many reviewers used the same thing. Some people didn't finish theirs and said "Um, they're interesting..", others loved them, as did I. I'm sure I'll be making these again, next time I'll put in the soy sauce, which I omitted this time due to its sodium content. Everyone should at least try these.

Cheesecake Topped Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Made without sweetened condensed milk, put the cheesecake layer over homemade brownies, and did not put a layer of frosting on top. Used vegan cream cheese, turned out fine, not an outstanding dessert, but less boring than the typical brownie. My brother demanded I make these for our family get-together, since I now stick with "black bean brownies", which he hates. He liked these.

Spinach Lasagna III

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Wonderful. Left out mushrooms and romano (used grated parmesan), and only 12 lasagna noodles. Also used frozen chopped spinach. Thanks for the recipe, great Sunday meal.

Cucumber Sunomono

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
This was great. I only put 1 tsp white sugar and didn't have fresh ginger root, so I put about 1/2-1 tsp ground ginger. I wasn't expecting it to be good, and I'm not sure if I'd like it with all the fresh ginger, but everyone loved it. Easy to put together too.

Finnish Pulla

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
PERFECT. This works with soy milk, which is what I used. My grandpa is a linguist and has done quite a bit of service in Finland, he knew exactly what this was when he saw it. I had some trouble in the mixing process-- no bread mixer, so didn't get as much beating into it as hoped, but it didn't cause any problems. 2nd stage of rising I put it in the oven @ 170 degrees F for about an hour. Beautiful bread. Oh, I cooked only one loaf at first, and it does NOT need 30 minutes.. it started getting too done at 24, I'm guessing 20-22 would've been even better.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Everyone LOVED this frosting. I used vegan butter, and instead of evaporated milk I used non-dairy creamer (made from coconut milk.) Worked perfectly, people had a lot to say about it, some calling it "melt in your mouth" and others "so creamy and good." A keeper.
