General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
I used tofu instead of chicken, and I didn't fry it. I made it twice. The first time, I followed the recipe exactly and it was WAY too starchy. The second time, I halved the starch, and it was still too much. Added pineapple, though, and that took away from the starch a bit.

Luscious Lemon Snaps

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2005
I made this recipe for my co-op, and they got eaten up pretty quickly! I used about 2/3 of the oil recommended, as suggested by someone else here. That seemed to be a good amount. I also didn't have any lemon zest, so I used orange zest. The dough didn't seem to have much flavor, so I added a bit more lemon juice and some freshly squeezed OJ. That did the trick! I didn't have any vanilla extract, but they still tasted delicious. I wouldn't call these lemon snaps, though... mine turned out pretty chewy.

Caesar Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2005
I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but I experimented with the ingredients until I found something I liked. I didn't have croutons or Worcestershire sauce, but I added some red wine vinegar, and that helped it out. Yum!

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2006
I wouldn't say this was the BEST banana bread ever, but it is a really good foundation. I added cinnamon and walnuts, and it was delicious. :)

Pumpkin Bars I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
Well, I thought adding only three eggs might yield a more bar-like substance, but it's still pretty cakey. Delicious, though!

Easy Cranberry Granola

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
This was good! I only used about a cup of honey, and it was sweet enough for me. If you like bigger clumps of granola, try pressing it down into the pan before you bake it, and don't stir it while it's cooking.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I agree that this recipe has waaaay too much salt in it, and I only put about half of the listed amounts. It's too much for me, but my salt-addicted husband loves it. The tikka masala we are used to has chunks of onion and green peppers in it. I miss the vegetables and will be adding them into the marinade next time.

This was yummy. :) Added a few tablespoons of plain yogurt to make it a bit creamier.

Thai Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
This was my first successful meal with tofu. I pressed it by putting a plate with two cans on top for about 15 minutes, and then fried it with LOTS of oil. The rest of the dish was pretty easy, but too mild by itself. I added half of a habanero pepper, broccoli, cauliflower, green peppers, halved grape tomatoes, and some cayenne pepper and chili powder. A 14-oz can of coconut milk provides enough sauce for the extra veggies.

To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
It was too salty and bland. Maybe I would try it next time with unsalted butter and more garlic (I added two cloves this time).

Super Moist Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
This is delicious. :) I added 1 tsp of ginger and some chocolate chips and cranberries. I could have done without the cranberries, but the chocolate chips make it extra good! Thanks for the great recipe.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
These are really moist and yummy. I added cinnamon, vanilla extract, ginger, and nutmeg. We didn't have whipped cream or syrup, so we ate them with peanut butter. Yum! Next time I'd like to add some nuts (walnuts or pecans) and chocolate chips.

Beans, Some Like It Hot!

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
I didn't think this was BAD per se, but nothing to write home about. The volume of spices in this recipe made the sauce seem kind of pasty/gritty. Maybe I'll try it again with half the ginger that's listed, but that won't fix the pasty problem.

Buffalo Chicken Wings III

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
A good recipe to go off of! I followed it exactly the first time (with extra spicy Frank's), and it was delicious! However, I would like it more spicy. It seems like it can be easily modified, so I think next time I'll try sautéing some garlic and peppers in the butter.
