Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
This quiche was so delicious. I rummaged through the freezer and found out I didn't have any spinach so I used zucchini instead. It is very forgiving and a great basic recipe for quiche.

Banana Butter Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Made this for chocolate cupcakes for a shower. It was too runny. I ended up using an entire box (5 cups) of powdered sugar to try to thicken this up. I stopped there as if I added more powdered sugar, it would've been too sweet and I wouldn't have been able to taste the banana. When I frosted my cupcakes, the icing just oozed down the sides. It was messy and gross. Alright flavor, but I will definitely not make it if I were to impress people with the looks of it.

Island Kielbasa in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
I'm not sure how to rate this recipe. The recipe is really good, the keilbasa tastes wonderful in this delectable sauce... but this shouldn't be cooked in a slowcooker. At the end of the 5 hours, I got sausage mush... which I should've expected because keilbasa is alreay cooked. Horrible in the slowcooker. Tried this again but heated the concoction up on the stove for a few minutes and it was delicious. Don't do this is a slow cooker!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
These muffins were the best! I followed the recipe exactly but I did add in a quarter cup of walnuts. It was delicious and the crumb topping makes these irrasistible! Great for using up leftover mushy bananas.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
This is a GREAT oatmeal cookie recipe. Unfortunately, i only had cinnamon on hand for the spices and just figured I could double it and it would taste okay. It did taste okay, but I can see how it would be GREAT if i had the other spices... Follow the recipe to the very last teaspoon!!!

Zesty Pasta with Sausage

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This was great! Instead of sweet sausage, I used hot. I used a better jarred pasta than prego. Classico four cheese. And instead of spaghetti noodles I used frozen cheese raviolis. This will work great with any jarred pasta sauce and any pasta. SO GOOD!

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
great start for an egg roll recipe but i use bean sprouts in my egg rolls along with the cabbage and carrots. coleslaw mix would be a great substitute as the ratios of cabbage to carrot doesn't need to be calculated. i also add fresh ginger, fresh garlic, soy sauce and oyster sauce to enhance flavors. i dip these "lumpia," as we call it in filipino, in a vinegar/garlic dip.

Japanese-Style Deep Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
i'm from Hawaii and this dish is very common. it's called "mochiko chicken" as mochiko is the brand of rice flour/mochi flour that we have here. it costs less than a dollar a box. try adding some oyster sauce to the mix too. delicious!

Portuguese Sweet Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
wonderful bread! it was great with butter spread on it fresh from the oven. i made this by hand as i found out my bread machine was broken this morning. :( it was a very easy recipe, even for doing it by hand. i followed the recipe exactly and then kneaded the dough by hand on a floured board. then i placed in an oiled bowl and covered it with plastic wrap. i let it rise for an hour and a half, punched down and let rise again in the loaf pans. i brushed the top with egg wash to make it glazy and brown looking. i baked at 350 for 30 minutes. i'm portuguese and sweetbread is a big thing here in hawaii and this is THE BEST i've ever had. my roommate and parents loved it too! baked a few more loaves for christmas presents.

Penne with Chicken and Pesto

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
this recipe is SO GOOD. i added shrimp and chicken to mine and served over penne. the cream adds a nice richness to the end of the sauce. i omitted the butter and it still turned out great. :) i also served it with garlic biscuits.
