Chinese New Year Sweet Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
i think this is probably more of a fried rice. the sweet rice version you're thinking of, the ingredients are steamed with the rice.

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
pretty good and simple recipe. i added some macadamia nuts. cut the sugar like everyone said. next time i'll substitute some applesauce for oil to make it lower fat. be careful not to substitute all applesauce, or it comes out kind of dense and spongy.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2007
it was good but very tomato-ey. i know some people like that but i was expecting more flavor. the meatballs were fine, i made them about the size of half dollars and broiled them a little bit first since i didn't want to wait too long for it to cook. it was a little oily and i had to spoon that out and i even used less oil than recommended.

Chewy Brownie Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2007
definitely follow the 2" apart, i used butter and they spread like mad. also, they were a little sweet for me. i'll cut down on sugar next time.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
i made half the recipe, put extra cocoa, white chocolate chips, and macadamia nuts in it. i guess the extra dry ingredients stopped my cookie from spreading at all. they weren't that chocolatey flavored, was it because i used nestle baking cocoa?

Cranberry Sauce II

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
it's so easy and more flavorful than the canned stuff. i made this maybe half a week in advance and just kept it in my fridge. when the berries popped and i mashed them all with my spatula, i thought the cranberries were a little too bitter so i added maybe like a quarter cup of orange juice and it tasted so strongly of orange that i thought i had ruined it but after letting it cool and turn into slushy jelly in the fridge, it lost the orange flavor completely.

Megaturkey

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
i would definitely do this again. i have never cooked a turkey before but i read up on it to cook for some friends. i brined my turkey almost 24 hours, which you shouldn't because that's a little too long. the turkey turned out tasting fine, but my gravy was definitely too salty. i used oranges instead of apples, i cut each orange in half and squeezed the juice over the turkey then stuffed it inside the cavity along with my vegetables, i didn't do the stuffing. i was almost worried that there wasn't going to be enough juice to make gravy but there is so much you'll have plenty. the only bad part was that my turkey stuck to the plastic a little bit and ripped some skin off. my turkey was honestly so tender the drumsticks were falling off when i tried to move the bird to my cutting board. i thought my breast was pretty dry but everyone else thought it was really moist. i would trust them because i don't eat very much roast turkey anyway.

Ono Butter Mochi

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
i didn't have whole milk so i used 1% and it still came out amazing, i don't know if it would have made very much difference in taste if i had gone with whole anyway. i know this place that makes it and guaranteed they must either use whole milk or half&half and this tastes exactly the same. i didn't use the coconut either, i don't know how that would have been but i've never had it with before. when it's done baking, there's all this butter on top, but you leave it alone and it soaks back into the mochi, but i blotted mine and it still was fine. i think you have to fully let it cool so that the butter resolidifies. i can't wait to try it in muffin cups because the edges are the best part. edit! do NOT omit the last egg (put four eggs instead of five). I only had four but decided to go ahead anyway and it was TERRIBLE. the flavor was the same but the texture just wasn't there. it turned out mushy and not chewy at all.
