Asian Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
Delicious! I had something similar at an expensive Japanese steak house and haven't been able to forget it. This recipe is a dead ringer for that one at a fraction of the cost! I was in a hurry, so I used pre-shredded coleslaw mix and halved the dressing, then tossed in a handful of crumbled ramen noodles. I could eat the whole bowl in one sitting!

Basic Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
I thought homemade pasta was for Italian grandmas and people with fancy pasta machines...until now! I have no machine, no fancy rollers, no stand mixer and no previous experience making pasta, and this turned out AMAZING. I followed other reviewers' examples and let the dough rest for about half an hour after kneading (turns out kneading by hand is a good stress reliever!), then rolled it out thick with a plain old wooden rolling pin and cut into big squares with a pizza roller for chicken pot pie. It was so good I had to call my mom and brag!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
I made this for a friend's birthday, and among the praise and compliments were, "This pie is so good I could take a bath in it," and "best key lime pie I've ever had." The taste and texture were absolutely amazing. The only changes I made were the addition of fresh lemon zest and a dab of green food coloring, whipped cream for topping and cinnamon grahams for the crust.

Gooey Chocolate Icing

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
Just a note to those who think it's too thin - you have to stir it for a long time (10 minutes or so) to get it to thicken, but it's worth it. I burned my mouth several times tasting it before it cooled. I used it on a Crazy Cake for a butter-free, egg-free treat and it was amazing.

Simple BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
I've never made ribs before and these were so tender they fell right off the bone. My roommate couldn't stop raving about how exceptionally good they were! I let the ribs marinate in the broth after boiling for about 2 hours, and doubled the barbecue sauce - you can't have too much of a good thing!

Chocolate Chip Cookies Lite

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
Having read the reviews first, I was prepared for pancake-y texture, but was still surprised at how thin the batter was. I used Gluten Free flour, so that may have been the problem. I increased the flour 1/4 c. and added butter flavoring. They are definitely more bread-like than cookie-like, less so if slightly overbaked. But not bad for an emergency craving. And even if I eat all 12, I won't feel guilty!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
Cookies came out too soft -- to the point of falling apart -- even though I followed the recipe to the letter (for once!). They're pretty good, but I think I'll try less shortening next time.
