Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
I decreased the sugar, I always decrease the sugar in recipes because they are always too sweet. So, it was roughly 3/4 to 1 cup that I added. Also, the batter was way to thick to pour, it was starting to look more like cookie dough, so I added just a little half and half. For the milk mixture I did one cup of regular coconut milk (using the cream that separates, not the watery stuff, as much as possible) and one cup half and half instead of the two cups whole milk. I also added half a cup of hazelnut kahlua, but next time I would add more because I couldn't taste it at all. And, again, for the topping I decreased the sugar and added a touch of cayenne pepper. It turned out really well, but I wouldcdecrease the milk, because all of it definitely didn't soak in. But, it's very tasty.

Satay Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
I ended up using tortillas instead of pita bread. I heated them up in a pan first so they'd be nice and crunchy, then put the toppings on and cooked them on a pizza stone. It was pretty tasty.

Hot Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
This was OK by itself. But, I followed the advice of other reviewers which helped a lot. I added ground giner, onion powder, minced garlic, more chili powder, more soy sauce, more peanut butter and instead of hot water I used hot black tea. It turned out really well with a little more work.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
The great thing about this recipe is how versatile it is. I've been using it for a long time and the variations I've made are endless. However, if you have fresh herbs use those. And, if you have basil then add it. Overall, a good recipe.

Green Tea Layer Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
I loved this recipe. However, I won't double the frosting like others recommended next time I make it. I did cut down the sugar in the cake and frosting considerably and it turned out perfect for the cake, the frosting still needs less. And, I would add more cream cheese to the frosting, otherwise you can barely tell it's there. For the powdered green tea just buy instant iced green tea. I bought the Kroger brand which was just powdered green tea. No need to blend it like others did.

Tagine of Moroccan Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
This recipe wasn't bad. I only added 2 Tb. of honey, but I think removing it completely would help. I also used boneless chicken breasts. The saffron was great in it, I personally wouldn't skip it. But, there just seems to be something missing in the recipe that I can't put my finger on. Still good though.

Yakisoba Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
I really enjoyed the cabbage and soba noodles in this recipe. And, it had a lot of chicken which was excellent. I highly recommend it. Just make sure you really do use a large skillet, at the end it gets pretty full.

Famous Japanese Restaurant-Style Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
I thought this was pretty good. The rest of my family was pretty indifferent to it though. I used olive and sesame oil instead. And, I didn't mince or finely dice anyting, I just cut everything in bite size pieces for my blender and blended everything well.

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
I changed a few things for the tomato sauce. 1. I used two pounds ground beef. 2. Instead of dried oregano I used fresh with quite a bit of fresh basil and parsley. I also threw in a good amount of cayenne pepper. 3. I changed out the two cups of water with two cups of red wine. 4. Instead of cottage cheese I used whole milk ricotta. 5. Next time I'll skip the sugar, even though it's a smal amount. The sauce seemed oddly sweet and didn't have a very good tomato flavor. So, I added can of tomato sauce which helped a lot. Then cooked the sauce down half an hour more. However, if you add the extra beef and tomato sauce you'll need a bigger baking dish and more noodles unless you don't use all the sauce. I served this with a creamed corn casserole, spinach salad, toasted garlic bread and rhubarb pie. It was fabulous. One of the best lasagna recipes I've ever tasted!

English Saffron Bread

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
Just a few notes on this recipe: 1. Cube the butter before you put it in the milk, the milk isn't quite hot enough to melt two whole sticks. 2. For efficiencies sake, I'd soak the saffron in the water before starting the milk, then you're working on that while the water cools. 3. I ran out of sugar, so I used 1/4 cup of honey. I'm not sure if my loaf of bread is terribly different than it would have been, but it still tastes great. 4. Once again, I'm not sure how different it tastes, but vanilla soy milk works well as a substitute for milk. 5. If you are concerned with the taste, there isn't too much saffron. I think the bread tastes awesome. However, if the cost of saffron bothers you I would think you could decrease it.

Creamed Onions and Sage

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
These weren't everything I'd hoped they'd be. My mom and I made them when we had some friends over who were on a pretty specific diet. No one seemed too impressed by them, but they weren't bad at all. I would make them again if I needed to use up onions or something, but not just for the recipe itself.

Turkey Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
I made this when my brother had a horde of friends up to play the new Halo, and being teenage boys, none of them cared what they ate, and it was a good time to use up our turkey. It did use up our turkey and it tasted pretty good, but the top part where the cheese was tasted the best. The rest of it needed something else to add more flavor, perhaps more cheese or spices, I'm not quite sure. But, it was a really good way to use up turkey and there was nothing left over after the boys got to it.

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
I made these for my brother's birthday to take to school. Mine didn't turn out the best, they weren't bad, but they weren't good either. But, that doesn't mean I wouldn't give this recipe another try, I don't think it's anything that can't be fixed. The cake part was fine, even though I used 1/3 cup cocoa powder instead of 1/4 cup. And, I found that the cream cheese filling ended up not really being a filling, so next time I would double that and plop more in there. I tried them before I sent them with my brother and ended up making another batch of the cream cheese mixture for his class to use as frosting. Plus, I only cooked the muffins for 20 minutes. I think if I were to double the filling next time, these might be better.

Chicken Florentine Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
This was really good. However, I just used normal chicken broth instead of the water and bouillon, I replaced a few of the dried herbs with fresh, I threw in a little more spinach, and I squeezed in half a lemon. What I really like about this recipe is that it doesn't use any canned cream of whatever soup. The cottage cheese works great with it. But, the one complaint I have is it doesn't look very appetizing, getting some younger, pickier kids to eat it was a little bit of a challenge, but once they tasted it they loved it.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
My mom and I made this for thanksgiving since she doesn't like traditional pumpkin pie (I personally missed it), and it turned out great. Our layers weren't pretty at all, which could've been our fault. Plus, it was extremely rich. Even the extreme cheesecake lovers in our family could only eat small slices. Which can be good or bad, it depends on whether you like rich foods or not.

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
I really liked this crepe recipe. I mix it all up in a blender though. That works really well. It's easy too for a quick meal. I like to use pesto and chicken with some kind of green like asparagus, green beans or spinach, or strawberries with vanilla yogurt to fill it. I've made this recipe quite a bit and I still really like it.

Whole Grain Healthy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
I really liked this recipe, however I did alter it some because of what I had on hand and preference. I used dark brown sugar instead of splenda and vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream. Plus, I threw in a tablspoon or two or whole wheat germ. It turned out wonderfully. It will make a great quick breakfast on days when I'm short on time.
