Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2008
Just made these. I couldn't stop myself from licking the mixing bowl after they were in the oven! I usually have more self-control, but the flavor was incredibly chocolaty without being super-sweet (like found in most chocolate cupcakes). DELICIOUS! I thought these would be winners for sure...until they came out of the oven :( The incredible flavor was still there, but the texture was odd. Moist but a little clumpy. I followed other reviewers' advice and used half & half instead of milk, 3/4 teaspoons of baking soda, and 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder. BAD IDEA. Next time I'll follow the recipe exactly and hope for better results :) FYI, all was not lost! Still awesome with a tall glass of milk.

Rolled Buttercream Fondant

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
I followed the directions PERFECTLY (this was my first time making fondant and I did not want to make a mess of it), yet somehow it ended up greasy. I added more confectioner's sugar, but couldn't get that matte finish. Nothing worked :( I'm not sure how I could improve upon this recipe, so next time I'll be trying a different one.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
So good! Next time I'll have to use less sugar though, these are a bit too sweet for my taste! Also, I might try making them smaller - can't devour a whole one of these at once! Otherwise, great! Love the crispy & chewiness of the outer crusts. :)

Vegetarian Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
I took the suggestions of other readers into account and altered this recipe in a few ways. 1. halved the amount of gorgonzola to 4 oz. 2. halved the amount of portobello to 4 oz. added one chopped zucchini and red bell pepper and used them with the mushrooms. 3. Added half a palmful of garlic salt, along with the other herbs and spices. 4. Allowed the dish to stand for approx. 3.5 hours before baking. SO flavorful! The amount of gorgonzola was perfect - guests definitely felt the 'adult'ness of the dish, without an overpowering old cheese feeling. Very wholesome and filling - I don't think anyone even realized that meat was missing from this dish. Already, I'm being asked to make it again! Will definitely make for my next gathering.

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
I got so many compliments on this easy, quick recipe. Next time, I won't add onions - they didn't seem to 'mesh' flavor-wise with the other ingredients. Also, this dish is definitely better the day after. I would suggest, as other readers have, refrigerating it overnight. :)
