A+ Recipe! The best recipe on this site by far. BUT one note though: DO NOT ADD ANY ALMOND EXTRACT! Just vanilla extract.

Lemon Sauce I

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
I added twice the amt of nutmeg and twice the amt of butter... turned out great. But note that you have to cook down the water and sugar mix quite a bit to the consistency you want... will take time. Thanks

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
A-. Recipe is good as is, however I baked in a bundt cake pan and 40 mins was sufficient. Any more time and it would've been burnt. Thanks

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
Used only 1/4 of sugar and recipe turned out great. Tip- use brown sugar or honey in place of white sugar. Gives recipe more depth of flavour.

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
Added a box of vanilla pudding powder mix, 1 TB more of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of cardamon and it was perfect. Thanks for this nice cake- also a version of the graham streusel coffee cake here on this site. Only diff is the other uses walmuts and no sour cream but this honey bun cake is more moist and more like a cinnamon roll. Thanks!

Graham Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
A+. Amazing. However did the layers of cake and streusel in a bundt cake pan and didn't turn out well as the brown sugar and walnuts miz sunk to bottom and cake rose to the top so it didn't have the layered effect i wanted. I also doubled the streusel amt and added a pinch of cinnamon to the cake mix for additional flavour. Another good tip- if you have any ground cardamon, add it to your streusel mix and cake mix- adds a nice kick of flavour and gives it a special something that i think a lot of bakeries and whatnot use as their 'special ingredient'. This recipe is def a keeper!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Made with the Satiny Chocolate Glaze receipe from this site. Amazing, amazing results. Baked for an office birthday. Huge hit. Moist, very decadent, delish! BTW, if you make some chocolate dipped strawberries and lined them around the cake, it looks and tastes fantastic as well and will add that special tartness from the strawberries to cut the sweetness of the cake.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Perfect. Amazing. Like others, I just placed all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl, in the microwave and for about 1.5 mins, it was down- stir to see consistency and if too runny, then just add more chips. A big hit with the Too Much Chocolate Cake receipe from this site as well. Amazing!

Peach Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
A+ recipe! Delish (with some modifications): only use fresh, ripe peaches. I used approx 10 leftover ripe peaches (small to medium sized)- did not peel, no need to because once cooked you cannot tell no difference. Chopped roughly. Only use 3/4 cups of veg oil (1.25 cups is a bit excessive for just muffin consumption). Add 1 tb of nutmeg (or more if you wish for taste). Used only white sugar and worked fine- no difference to brown sugar, unless you want to make some sort of topping. Cook at 400 degrees for 20-22 mins as per instructions. Note: this will make approx 16-18 large muffins, dependent upon how to distribute them. MUST spray muffin pan with Pam spray or something along those lines- if not, will stick to no avail. Enjoy! This recipe is amazing- fresh fruit taste with a hint of sweetness and nutmeg/cinnamon. Ate two immediately out of the oven and rest will probably be gone by tomorrow by family! :-)

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
B+. A good recipe that needs some tweaks: 1. heat olive oil with garlic, pan fry slightly the chicken. Add some chicken or veg broth (a few tbs) to steam chicken till cooked. 2. Follow instructions of original recipe and combined ripped up pieces of cooked chicken to sauce. I used low fat chicken and low fat mushroom soup- worked and tasted fine 3. Add onion powder to mixture 4. Instead of ritz like crackers and butter- which adds just MORE calories than needed, top with panko (japanese) bread crumbs. Panko is now readily available in any grocery store. 5. Add salt/papper and some cayenne pepper- sprinkle lightly on to taste for a slight kick 6. cook at 375 degrees for 25 mins then turn broiler on a broil panko crumbs till brown and then enjoy! :)

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
I give this recipe a B+. It tasted great, but required some tweaks. Here are a few tips to make excellent Japanese Chicken Wings, with less fat and MORE taste: 1. Do not fry. Waste of calories. Instead, broil on high in oven. Each side approx 4-5 minutes. Ensure you flip sides so all of wing is alittle crispy. 2. Once broiling is complete, remove wings from oven. Turn off broil function. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 3. Line a sheet pan twice with foil. For recipes contents, forget about part with butter because we did not fry. Instead focus on sauce part. Do not use 1 cup of sugar. Use approx 1/3 of a cup. Use rice wine vinegar instead of white. For vinegar, use about 1/3 cup as well. Use about 6 TB of soya sauce or for taste you prefer. Slight sprinkle of chile peppers or hot sauce. Coat broiled wings in this mix well. 4. Once coated, please on cooking sheet and place in oven. Will cook for about 30 minutes. While wings cooking in oven, place leftover sauce in saucepan. Bring to a boil to use as a glaze. To thicken sauce, add cornstarch (to ensure no lumps in this sauce/gravy- add approx 1 TB of cornstarch to about 3TB of water, mix well and then add to saucepan to thicken sauce). 5. After approx 30 mins or until wings are cooked, remove from oven and coat them in the thickened sauce. 6. Service with white Nishiki rice or simply some veg. VERY delicious and enjoy!! :-)

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
A+. Amazing recipe. Works like a charm. Muffins turn out soft, moist and like they came right from a bakery! I didn't even make the topping and still they were delish. Used strawberries, along with blueberries, for my 2nd batch. I would advise against strawberries for this recipe since it makes the muffins 'too moist' and almost like a jam-like substance in the muffin. Not very appetizing but if this happens to you, let the muffins cool and they refridgerate. This helps it solidify and the moist-ness is not as bad. Remember to add a teaspoon or two of vanilla extract to the batch and also spray the muffin pan with cooiking spray.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
A-. Good receipe. Although I didn't add the parsley and onions- didn't want to take away from the natural turkey flavour. Moreso appreciated the tips on placing the foil on for most of the time and taking it off for the last 45 mins- I actually took mine off for the last hour. Turned out yumnmy. Used this recipe with a ButterBall Turkey. Used about 1/2 cup fo butter and smoothed over surface of turkey. Didn't need to put under skin since it's a butterball. Turned out moist as heck. Thanks!

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
A-... used ricotta cheese, two tubs of it, and two large packs of already shredded mozza cheese. Delish. Covered bottom of pan with meat mixture, then one layer of the pasta, then the ricotta and lots of mozza cheese and then repeat one more time- if you add lots of ricotta cheese and mozz, then you only need to repeat twice and hence only need 8 slices of the lasagna pasta (don't boil too much b/c it's such a waste to throw away). Also used 100% whole wheat pasta and no difference taste than the usual white one but a lot more nutricious. Also use extra lean ground beef and only light cheese but tasted awesome. Thanks for the recipe! It only took one hour prep and one hour to cook- although could cook in 50 mins easily. Put in oven for 25 mins with foil and then another 25 mins without foil and then 1-2 mins on broil to brown cheese. Thanks!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
A. Very good recipe. Follow it to a tee- maybe add more veggies but all in all, easy and tastes very good. A good Monday to Friday meal. On the weekends, something more complex would be better
