Adobo Chicken with Ginger

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
DELICIOUS! I'm giving this 4 stars because I didn't follow your recipe exactly. I had 5lb of quarter legs and, since I was simply too lazy to alter the recipe to fit 5lb, I just guessed. I used ground pepper instead of peppercorns. I went heavy on both the garlic and the pepper, since I am a huge fan of both. We didn't have bay leaves so I used the leaves on our lime tree in our backyard, which is what my mom usually uses when cooking. Turned out GREAT. I will make sure to have my Filipino friends try it to see what they think!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
It was very good, but not the best. The only change I made was whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose. I made this for my parents as I myself am not too much of a bread person; next time I make it for them I will add walnuts.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
Excellent! I made this last night for the kids I was babysitting - it's so easy to make and they LOVED it! So did I for that matter. I used chicken tenderloins instead of breasts cuz that's all they had. Simply delicious :)

Allie's Delicious Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
When I asked my boyfriend what his favorite food was, his answer was "mac and cheese" - I, who has never encountered anything but the blue box variety, was astonished. My reaction when he told me his mom made it from SCRATCH was "HuH? How does she make the cheese powder!??!" Nevertheless I decided to make his favorite dish and followed this recipe exactly. WE LOVED IT!!! I'll never settle for the instant stuff ever again! THe only problem I had was with the flour clumping. Next time I will try corn starch instead.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
This cake was AMAZING - I made it for my dad, because I usually don't like carrot cake... And we BOTTH LOVED IT!!! I only made a few minor changes - one tablespoon of vanilla extract, olive oil instead of vegetable, and because I didn't have any cinnamon I used nutmeg instead. I was planning on following your frosting recipe when I realized I had JUST run out of confectioner's sugar, so I used about 3/4 cup white sugar and 3 or 4 tbsp of pure maple syrup (I'm guestimating cuz I didn't actually measure)... And it still came out great, and it wasn't too sweet. The middle of my cake fell in so I had to cut out the sides and rebake the middle, but I think I overbeated my batter. Thank you so much for a GREAT recipe!!!!!

Corned Beef Hash (Abalos style)

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
This is great!!! When my mom was away for about a week, the responsibility of cooking fell to me (her 16 year old daughter lol)... I knew everyone in my family loved corned beef so I found your recipe and it was an instant success!!! I cut out the potatoes because I served it with rice. The only problem I had was that the tomatoe juice made the whole thing really runny - but it still tasted delicious!
