Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
These onion rings were very good. I used both white and red onions, making about half of the batch sweet. Still looking for a good dip for this, but otherwise they were very good!

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
I used this frosting on my coconut creme cake. It came across as slightly cheesy, which I didn't really understand why. Once I sprinkled toasted coconut on the frosting it wasn't too bad. After allowing the frosting to sit for a couple days in the fridge (it was on the cake), the frosting not only tasted cheesy, it also became somewhat salty. Thus, I am assuming this frosting is not meant to sit for long but is meant to be eaten quickly.

Coconut Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
When I was making this cake, I had doubts throughout because, not only was it ugly before it was frosted (all the holes and liquid soaking in are not a very appetizing sight), but the color of the cake after it had soaked was almost questionable. However, the cake turned out to be quite a tasty surprise! I would suggest to others who make this recipe that they make the cake 2-4 days before it is eaten. The longer you allow it to sit, the better it tastes. I wasn't too crazy about it the first 2 days, but by the 4th day the cake was absolutely delicious. I frosted it with the cool whip frosting on this site as suggested by some other viewers and it was wonderful, though it did come off as slightly cheese flavored. Also, I toasted the coconut that I sprinkled over the frosting. One note, if you are using this frosting, I suggest you wait to frost the cake until the day it is going to be eaten or the night before because after it sits for awhile, it begins to taste slightly salty, which doesn't really complement the cake. Otherwise, this cake was delicious. A definite keeper!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
The shrimp was slightly flavorless, not rising up to my expectations from the rave reviews I read, but pairing it with a lemon dip brought out a nice flavor. Everyone thought this dish was wonderful and they can't wait for me to make it again.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
This recipe was a hit with my family! Needless to say there was none left over and everyone kept begging for more. I did make a few changes in that I used 20+ bite-size white mushrooms to make the individual servings easier to eat. Also, I lessened the amount of cayenne pepper and the cream cheese. Otherwise, this is one of my favorite recipes of all time.

Avocado Prawns

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
I made this recipe for my family along with stuffed mushrooms. The mushrooms were a hit but no one liked the prawns. Unfortunately, I will not be making this recipe again.
