Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Good starting point. Like many others found it needed more seasoning. I added about 4 cardamon pods, 1 tsp cumin, upped the curry to 2tbs instead of the 1.5tbs, and added a few sprinkles of cinammon. Also, doubled the garlic amount. Didn't use the bell peppers, instead used cauliflower and added fish. So yummy but even better next day. Seriously as good as restaraunt if not better....

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
Family really liked it. Seasoned chuck roast with salt, onion powder, garlic powder, mustard and a little cayenne. Seared in skillet on all sides. Placed in crock pot for 6 hours. Instead of water used chicken broth and added two bay leafs. Didn't add onion or celery because we didn't have any and we didn't miss it. Added my potatoes two hours before it was done, carrots and fresh green beans 1.5 hours before done and then handful of mushrooms 15 min before serving. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. Veggies were not mush and had great flavor. Only enough left for hubby next day and he didn't mind eating it at all.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Not bad, but not amazing either. I used good quality bbq sauce and even put a dry rug mixture on ribs and marinated several hours before cooking. I couldn't imagine them being any better without some sort of seasoning. They were falling off the bone like everyone else said but there wasn't an amazing flavor.

Parmesan Baskets

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
Simple recipe. I did mine in an 8 inch non stick pan. Only recommendation I can give is don't make them so thick. I think I did mine too thick. Although it worked, formed into basket shape, they weren't crispy by the time dinner came along. I think that was because they were too thick. If I'm wrong let me know. Going to try again but next time not so thick.

Almond Squares II

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
Too dry. Think it should call for less flour and less baking time. IF I make this again, I would do about 1/2 cup less flour and 5 min less baking time.

Panna Cotta

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
Great recipe. Subbed coconut milk instead of heavy cream. Served with fresh strawberries and blueberries. Great easy and tasty dessert. Hubby said, you have to make that again.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
Very easy recipe. IMHO could use more flavoring so I would add an extra tsp of almond or next time would like to try anise. I unfortunately over baked and they came out a little harder than I wanted. Didn't realize they would harden as they set. I will make again but will pay more attention to the baking time. Also, used extra virgin olive oil because that is what I had. Not sure if that is equal to Light Olive Oil, but it worked. Thanks...

Gramma's Date Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
Really enjoyed this simple recipe. Followed Lorrie recommendation and worked out perfect. I used date paste Majool that I seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamon. No sugar added to date mix. Be sure to add cinnamon to the oat/flour mix. Oh and Allpurpose flour works fine.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Let me the 891st person to review and join the countless others who rave about these. They are yummy. My fault I didn't use the entire filling because I thought what I put in was plenty. Wrong, put entire filling amount if not more. I like many other used entire packet of pudding. I used Kithcen Aid with hook to mix until it couldn't handle anymore then I flopped dough onto counter and hand kneeded to get all flour incoporated. Sprayed pot with pam, placed dough in there, covered with pot lid and put in my oven (turned off). Rose beautfully. Also, in baking pan I melted butter about 1/4 cup and added brown sugar/cinnamon mixture to bottom. Sort of like a pineapple upsided down cake. Then place cut rolls on top of that, let rise for another 45 min and bake. My baked in 19 min to perfection. After baking I flipped my cinnamon rolls into a platter letting the brown sugar goodness drip all over buns. Wonderful. Will be making again. Update: Made a second time but this time with evaporated milk because I didn't have reg milk and didnt turn out as good as the first time. Don't know why, but I won't be doing that again. My dough didn't rise as nice as the first time and evaporated milk was teh only thing I did different.

Apple Turnovers

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Ok, when I made the apples I was like OMG these taste awesome. Then I stuffed the pastry squares and baked. Waited until they were warm and ate one and then I was like Ewww. My apples taste sour. Then I was up until 2:30am doing work and got hungry so I grabbed a turnover and then I was like OMG again. For some reason the apples have to cool completely or they have this sour taste. Is that normal. Anyways, now they are awesome. I love the ones I sprinkled some sugar on top before baking. Will make again but this time will sprinkle sugar over the whole turnover and not just the top. BTW I used only 3 apples and 3/4 brown sugar and it was plenty for one box of puff pastry. I actually have a little left in fridge for later. Thanks...

Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
I found this very easy to make. I used 3 tsp of pumpkin pie spice instead of recommended spices. For filling used 1/3 fat free cream cheese and full cup of powder sugar, but will definitely only use 1/2 cup powder sugar next time as it was too sweet. I didn't add the butter because I just couldn't imagine eating that. I don't eat buttercream frosting because again I can't phantom eating butter straight up like that even though it is mixed in with other ingredients. To break the sweetness of filling I folded in about 1 cup whipped heavy cream. I'll do this again definitely. Used the parchment paper method which worked fine for me. The cake was spongy (not bad) just didn't expect that. I left a border around cake without filling to help relieve any spillage. I didn't have any issues so I guess it worked. Since it was easy I'll make another one tomorrow as I have plenty of pumpkin left over. Next time would like to use other reviewers recommendation of 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 regular sugar as well as maple extract in place of vanilla.

Honey Ginger Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
Good base but I added lots more to make it a meal. Carrots, celery, onion, broccli, fresh ginger, 3 garlic cloves, and mushrooms. Heat Olive oil & vegetable oil in pan and then add all veg except mushrooms. When other veggies are almost done add mushrooms, 2-3 tbl honey, chicken broth, ground ginger, a little terriyaki sauce, pinch of red pepper, shrimp and in my case left over fish. Top with sesame. While sauteeing veg get noodles ready. I used 3 bags ramen noodles not broken (do not use seasoning packets). Boil in lightly salt water only, then drain and add to veg mix. Be sure not to overcook ramen noodles. This serves about 3 hungry adults. Definitely making this again.

Almond Custard Filling

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Pretty good. For us 1/2 cup sugar was plenty. Instead of water I used skim milk, for powder dry milk I used powder coffee creamer because that's what I had on hand. Substituted equally no problem. I did 1/2 the almond called for and the other half vanilla. It goes from it not being thick and is never going to get thick to OMG its thick. Served it on the side of a pound cake with fresh blueberries on top. I'm sure it would be great in a trifle or parfait cup.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
Oh My Goodness...these are awesome. Best chocolate cookies ever I swear. My husband who has great will power because he is a triathlete can't help himself. He has eaten at least a dozen. These are great. For future bakers use instant pudding, just pour dry mix in as told, do not premix pudding. I recommend adding a little salt maybe 1/4tsp. I refrigerated dough for about 30 min to 60 min to firm dough. I made some one night and made the rest the next day and cookies came out great both days. I did notice that if you roll the dough into a nice ball you get a nice result. Tablespoon drops are nice too just a little more rough looking. Finally, I halved the recipe and it worked marvelously. I love these...

Rainbow Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
It's been a while since I had these and really don't remember what they are supposed to taste like. Mine came out OK? I took many reviewers recommendations and increased ingredients by 50%, used almond filling instead of almond paste and added 1 tbs of almond flavoring to dough mix. For chocolate I did add the 1/4 heavy cream and 2 tbs butter. Tried without via double boiler method and way too thick. So I heated butter and heavy cream in microwave to cream started to boil up and butter was 95% melted. Dumped chips into cream mixture and stirred until nice and smooth. Still baked in the 13x9 pan. I did separate eggs but not sure if it was worth it because I had to stir in coloring (tried folding in but had to stir a little to get to mix) which not sure if it deflated egg whites. Also, not thinking and trying to even out mix in pan tapped pan a few hard times on counter so not sure if that also let air out. All in all cookie came out good but a little too dry for me. I know it's a cookie not a cake but because looks like a cake I'm thinking it should be moister. I don't know it didn't really brown and so I baked for over the 12 min mark thinking it should get brown edges like the directions said. "If" I make again, I won't bang pan on counter and will definitely bake until toothpick comes clean. Oh and definitely add a little salt maybe 1/4 tsp to bring out flavors. I also only used raspberry filling not apricot.

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
This came out really good but I tell you we didn't add the red chile nor cayenne pepper in our house made cajun seasoning and it was plenty spicy from the Rotel tomato and chili and I used the mild one. We are not faint spice eaters either but any hotter wouldn't have made this enjoyable. I added okra as well as others had recommended. Will be making again definitely.

Dessert Crepes

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
Really easy to make and come out beautiful. The first time I made them I followed directions exactly. Made them second time around and added vanilla and used only 3 whole eggs and 1 egg yolk as I thought the first time "may" have had an eggy taste. Still came out beautiful, tasty and in my opinion less eggy. Thanks for the recipe.

Red Curry Flank Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
Good unique flavor. Marinaded for two days and then due to rain broiled in oven. 4 min on one side and 3 on the other. Included basil in my marinade and then added more to top of meat after patting meat dry prior to cooking. My cook time resulted in nice pink center. Next time might do 3 min on both sides.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
To try recipe out I halved which worked out fine. My only complaint is they are too sweet. I even lessened the amount of sugar called for and still sweet. I probably used 3/4 cup instead of the 1 cup but still too sweet. Otherwise all other proportions were right on.
