Cinnamon Cream Syrup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
This is absolutely delicious and a preferable alternative to manufactured (i.e. not pure) maple syrup. I had no heavy cream on hand, so I used ice cream instead and melted it in a saucepan. It worked wonderfully. Just make sure not to let the mixture boil if you make it this way.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
Very good fresh bread. All of my relatives were impressed. Used AP flour and added the salt after creating the dough per reviewer suggestion. I also added dried herbs to the mix before I started the bread machine. The texture was incredibly soft. Absolutely lovely.

Flounder Mediterranean

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
Very delicious. I substituted 2 tbsp of spicy brown mustard for the capers and used a fillet from a whole Panamanian snapper I bought from my local farmer's market. I thought the basil would be overpowering in the dish, but the flavors melded together and were very complimentary to the fish. Will definitely make again.

Honey Cornbread

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
This is good. I didn't have any cream, so I used milk instead. It's still not quite as good as the recipe I have on hand, so I will continue to my own. And I don't think I'd use cream for a cornbread recipe even if I did have it -- I'd use it on something else (i.e. more special) instead.

Vegan Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
Very good. The other reviewer was dead on with the suggestion of using marinara sauce in lieu of tomato paste. I also added two chicken bouillon cubes and some dried ginger after tasting it (in addition to the fresh ginger I had). My lentils turned to mush after the squash was completely cooked; next time I'll either add more lentils and add them later or add more squash but puree it prior to its addition.

Coconut Muffins

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
I'm giving this recipe 4 stars for the minor alterations I had to make in the recipe. The recipe seems good as is; I ran out of coconut extract, so I used vanilla instead. But I did happen to have coconut milk and used it instead of regular, and my batter was very dry. I ended up using nearly a whole 15 oz. can of coconut milk to get the batter to a decent consistency. I don't think had I used a 2/3 cup of regular milk it would have been sufficient in making the batter moist. Outside of that I skipped using cinnamon, I added some oats and toasted the coconut to make the topping , and I diced some fresh strawberries and folded them into the batter. They were very tasty and my kids loved them. I had to bake them a tad longer than 20 minutes for them to be fully done.

Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
Very good, restaurant quality. Make sure to keep the temperature of the oil at 365; if it dips, the cheese sticks are liable to leak.

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
Very good. I changed the recipe somewhat due to my husband's wishes and what I happened to have on hand. Used raisins instead of the butterscotch chips, added vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Used 1/2 cup less sugar and used wheat sandwich bread instead. The liquids were too much for the type of bread I used (I suppose). The amount of bread called for in the recipe is roughly 1/2 a standard loaf of sandwich bread (10 slices). I added 5 more slices to the mix to compensate for how much liquid there was, and that did the trick. It was still a little runny, but I poured some of the liquid out, as my greased 9" cake pan would have run over. I only baked it for 45 minutes, but it looked the right consistency. Tastes like I'd expect a good bread pudding to taste, and not too sweet, either (since I skimped on the sugar). Made this way, it would go well with a sauce drizzled on top.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
Delicious. I immediately make this whenever I have tilapia on hand, and I've been using this recipe for 6-9 months now. Instead of lemon juice, I use lemon pepper seasoning to reduce runniness.

Momma's Wine Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
I've been using this recipe for over a year now, and it's fantastic. It's the best when you use a chocolate cake mix with port for the wine.......absolutely delicious!

Chocolate Mousse I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
My mousse came out great. I do think the kind of chocolate you use will affect the flavor; however, I don't think the quality affects the consistency of the mousse itself. I used a cheap bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips that I bought 4-6 months ago, and the texture of the mousse still came out perfectly. The semi-sweet flavor of the chocolate was a bit overwhelming; next time I will simply use a chocolate I like to eat as is for the mousse. Overall a good recipe.

Sloppy Sams

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
I'm giving this 5 stars because it's a healthier alternative to real Sloppy Joes, it tastes just like a Sloppy Joe, it's cheaper than a real Sloppy Joe, and you want to keep eating more and more, just like you would with a Sloppy Joe. Kudos to the chef.

Onion Rings

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
These are pretty professional looking onion rings. They taste great. They are crispy and do stay crunchy (as another reviewer said) when left in an oven at 225 degrees. I'll definitely make this again when the mood strikes.

Walnut-Rippled Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2007
Pretty good.....I was surprised that this recipe came out as well as it did. I followed the recipe exactly, except I baked it for just under 50 minutes. Nice texture and not too sweet -- the white sugar is necessary. The batter should be fairly thick when pouring in a pan. I used a Bundt and it worked fine.

Fettuccine Alfredo IV

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2007
Fantastic. My not-quite two-year old (who is decidedly picky) ate half of the fettuccine and garlic bread on my plate. Added salt to taste and topped with sliced chicken breast. I only used 1/4 cup of butter to make 3 servings. Make sure you use REAL butter. It makes all the difference. I also used grated parm (Kraft), and my sauce was NOT gritty.

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
I made this cake and it came out very well -- moist, sweet, and tart all at the same time. I give it four stars because I had to alter the recipe per the other reviewers' suggestions AND because the cake (although it tasted good) didn't make me want to make it again anytime soon (and I do like cranberries a lot).

Sweet and Sour Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
My mother is a student at a culinary arts school, and she told me about this recipe after preparing it in her class. However, there are a couple of things that are different between this version and hers. She said to use rice wine vinegar as opposed to white distilled, and to use cake flour rather than self-rising. She also said to fry the chicken breast twice (yes, twice) -- first until the chicken gets ever so slightly brown, then drain on paper towels; put the chicken back in the deep fryer once the sauce and veggies are almost done and fry until completely browned. Garnish the dish with sliced almonds once its done.

JIF® Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
So my husband goes to the store one day and comes back home with not one but two humongous jars of Jif (apparently they were on sale). As peanut butter for sandwiches and the like, I can't stand Jif -- I prefer Peter Pan. I decided to put a dent in the unused jars of Jif by making peanut butter cookies. I'm so happy I did. The recipe is one of very few that I've encountered whereas you can follow it EXACTLY and it comes out like it should. I'm a tweaker by nature, but the only two things I did differently was use unsalted butter instead of Crisco and sprayed my cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. The cookies are absolutely delicious and stay moist and soft the next day.
