Butternut, Apple and Yogurt Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
Such a great recipe and it's so easy to make!! Just chop everything and throw them together and let them cook. Love it in a chilly fall day! I didn't have broth so I used water and added salt and pepper. It turned out right. So I assume salt and pepper should not be necessary if one uses the broth. Thanks for the recipe!

Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
I followed the cake mix direction but used apple sauce instead of oil. I made the filling according to the recipe except used butter. Cooked the flour mixture on medium. Beat the final cream with mixer for about 5 minutes for it to be fluffy. Very good, very delicious. People loved them!

Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
This is fantastic!!! I followed the recipe except that I used pumpkin puree because I didn't have any banana on hand but really wanted to make a quick bread LOL.. This is really quick to assemble, took me less than 10 min, pretty much the time the oven was preheating. The bread came out amazingly well, pretty and tasty. A keeper! I will try banana next time when I have bananas.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
I made cupcakes instead of a cake and baked the cupcakes for about 15-20 minutes. It turned out really good! I followed other reviewers and added more cocoa powder. I also substitute one cup of fresh brew coffee for one cup of water to add more flavor (personal preference). If you like dark chocolate, this is a way to go!

Perfect Cheesecake Everytime

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
I assumed it good because mine turned a little under-cooked. It made it and baked exactly as directed in the recipe. I don't know where went wrong. But the outer parts of the cake were delicious. I will definitely try it again and hope it goes well next time.

French Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Mine turned out very dense. Once cooled, it became crumbly. The taste is okay, not crispy. Instead of spraying water on oven wall, I put boiling water in a jelly roll pan under the bread when it was baking. I was hoping it would add some moist. I probably did but did not work perfectly well. Will try again since it's a really easy way to make French bread. I will try reduce the amount of flour used and spread water on oven wall next time.

Brown Sugar Chocolate Crackle Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
I've made them twice. The first time they turned out great, tasted like cookies. The second time they were a little too soft, more like brownies in cookie shape. overall they are like brownies, smelled like brownies when baking. A little sweet.

Seven-Layer Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
It was really pretty easy even took a lot of time. I used the four flavors called for, but sugar free type, light sour cream, and only 1/2 cup of sugar. For each layer, I waited about 45 min for it to set. It was very beautiful and tasted summery! A light dessert for summer! However, if not for people who like gelatin, they could be skeptical about eating it, even though they keep saying how pretty it is...

Easy and Delicious Chicken and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
This is really good! I followed some of the other reviewers' suggestions, putting chicken in the bottom, mixed the rice with the liquid, didn't use soup mix, poured the whole thing on the chicken, sprinkled the top with a some herbs, and baked for 1.5 hours. It was soooooooo good!! Made it for a friend who just gave birth to her daughter. She loved it!!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
These are yum!! I "stirred" my batter by hand (don't have a mixer). The batter was thick actually and better to mix by hand and prevent the overmix problem. I mixed all the dry ingredients together before putting them into the wet ones. Baked mine for 25 min. When it just came out of the oven, it felt cakey (couldn't wait for it to cool so I had a little bite). But after it cooled, it's really chewy. I made it as the recipe calls for (skipping the frosting part) because I was trying a new recipe. I'll make a bigger batch next time. This is a really good recipe, easy and quick, and most of all, DELICIOUS!! Worth keeping!!

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
This is so good! Light and fluffy. I'm used to plainer food so this worked well for me. For those of you who prefer more flavor, you might need to add more sugar or have it with syrup. I didn't have any blueberry so I just made it as it is without the berries. I paired the pancakes with strawberry reserve and coffee. So yum!!! My first time making pancakes and this is so easy. Next time I'll probably add some cinnamon.

No-Bake Haystacks

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
This is easy and yum. I didn't use peanuts because I don't like them. The reason I gave only three stars is because they don't hold together beautifully. My guess is that it lacks condensed milk to hold... like other similar recipes call for.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Very tasty!! I substituted the amaretto with orange juice and didn't put almonds in (because I had none). I baked it uncovered for 50 min. It still came out soft... I was hoping it to be crispy. But anywho, this is really really good. I will make it again and again. Will try different baking time to see the best results. Thanks for the recipe!

Cinnamon-Curry Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
This is wonderful! I didn't have Dijon mustard and pickle relish, so I used regular mustard and skipped the relish. It tasted a little bitter, but I liked it. I'm sure with the relish and Dijon mustard, it'd be great! Thanks for the recipe!

Raisin Farfel Kugel

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
It's good. I doubled the recipe. When it just came out of the over, the whole thing was so big, which scared me. But as it cooled, it went back and fit in the dish again :) Tasted good, but very different...

Olive Oil Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
That is great! Although I didn't succeed the first I made it. The second time I used 1 cup of water and other ingredients as the recipe calls for. It turned out moist and delicious!

Coffeebar Chai

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
It's a little strong, but maybe I boiled it too long and also I didn't use milk at all since I didn't feel like having milk at the time. It's great!

Mom's Baking Powder Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
These are good. I followed one of the reviewer's suggestion, doubled the amount of baking powder, but they didn't turn out to be bigger. I was expecting big biscuits. But they turned out good anyway.
