Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
Excellent cupcakes! Did not change a thing, and definitely didn't need any icing. Strange thing is.. these tasted just ok out of the oven, but after sitting for about 5 hours were elevated to spectacular status! Thanks for the great recipe--I will make these again!

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
Delicious! I added 3 "heaping" tablespoons of cocoa, used 2% milk, and cut the cornstarch in half. Still made a rich and very excellent pudding. Now I never have to buy pudding mix again, thank you!

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
Very good recipe for banana bread. Like some other reviewers, I added 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Lowered the cooking time to about 50 minutes, and it turned out great. Thanks!

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
This makes a tasty cake. However, I carefully followed the instructions, added an extra 1/2 cup milk, and still found that it was a little bit dry. The flavor was great, but it was not as moist as I would have liked. I baked it in two 9" pans for 23 minutes.

Molten Chocolate Cakes With Sugar-Coated Raspberries

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
I have made molten chocolate cakes before with much success, but this recipe was disappointing. The cake was tasty, but the liquid center had a very distinct "eggy" texture. It was difficult to ignore, and even my boyfriend (who knows nothing about cooking or ingredients) mentioned the strange taste and texture. Will not make again.

No Roll Pie Crust I

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
Excellent pie crust. So easy to make, and with ingredients that are always on hand. It was very flaky and satisfying. I'll never be intimidated by pie crusts again.

Carol's Butter Pecan Cake

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
I am only rating the cake, as I used a different icing. I substituted vanilla soymilk for regular milk (since I was out), and added half the amount of vanilla extract. The cake layers were fluffy and light, and perfectly moist. Very nicely sweetened, maybe a little too sweet, and only because I used flavored soymilk. My mom raved, and everyone else loved it. So good.

Indian Turkey Burgers With Lime, Cucumbers, and Chutney

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
Excellent. Tasty and moist, and the flavors work well together. I did think it was a wee bit too gingery, but my boyfriend didn't notice. Will also add fresh cilantro next time. Great recipe.

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
These are amazingly delicious, even better than my grandma's magic cookie bar recipe. The condensed milk takes them over the top. When I make these, my boyfriend tries to eat them all in one day.

Purple Plum Pie

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
Excellent pie. Not too sweet, and mildly tart. I omitted the lemon because I did not have it, and added an extra tablespoon of butter to the crumb topping. It tasted delicious, and was a great way to use up plums that no one wanted to eat. Of course, everyone wanted to eat the pie!

Grandma's Onion Rings (Southern Style)

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
I liked these, but my boyfriend said they were just ok. We both agreed they could use some more flavor. Next time, I'll add more salt and pepper, and maybe some garlic powder and cayenne. I also had to use more than 2 cups of flour to coat all the onion rings.

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
Great chicken salad! I substituted regular salt for the seasoning salt, and red pepper for green pepper. Otherwise, followed the recipe exactly. Delicious! Will definitely make this again.

Spiced Pecans

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
Wow-these are great! I wanted a sweet snack, but didn't feel like baking cookies. These were a nice change. I followed the recipe, but only baked the nuts for 18 minutes at 300 degrees. I stirred them every 6 minutes. I could really taste the cloves, so if you're not a clove fan you might want to reduce the amount or leave them out.

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
Great falafel! I omitted the mayo from the yogurt sauce, and made it the night before. Very tasty. Also baked the patties in a 425 degree oven on a lightly oiled pan. Don't be afraid to use the quantity of spices listed in the recipe, because the chickpeas will taste bland without it. Love this! Will be making it often!

Flourless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2008
WOW, yum! So rich and moist. It looked great when I left it on the rack to cool, but when I tried to move it onto a serving plate it fell apart. Literally, into about 5 big pieces. Might have been something I did wrong? It still tasted amazing and I will definitely make it again. Thanks!

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2008
These are very tasty. However, my cakes turned out dry. I made smaller sizes for dipping, so maybe that's the reason? I also added extra garlic and green onion, and a little bit of salsa in the mix. Definitely make the lime sour cream; it's fantastic.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2008
These cookies are delicious. I used chocolate pudding instead of vanilla, because I love chocolate! I halved the recipe, and still ended up with lots of cookies. These are excellent and soft, everyone loved them!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
This sauce is great, and so quick and easy to make. I halved the chili powder, but it still had a nice, strong flavor. Served it over enchiladas. Thanks!

Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
I agree that these are time consuming to prepare, but WOW are they worth it! Absolutely delicious. My mom said it was the best enchilada she'd ever eaten. I boiled the chicken in garlic, onion, water and chicken bullion (from the recipe "Poblano Chile Enchiladas a la Gringa"), then let it simmer for 40 minutes. After it cooled, I shredded the chicken and added it to Gerry's sauce. Maybe it was because the chicken was already cooked and shredded, but it only took a few minutes for the sauce to thicken and reduce. I substituted one cup of broth from my boiled chicken for the regular broth in the recipe, and did not use a full 14.5 ounces. YUM! I want to eat more right now. Thanks for the great recipe!
