Easy Microwave Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Being a college student means having no time so this recipe is perfect! It's quick and easy and tastes good. I would have given it 5 stars except I had to tweek it a bit. I added 1/2 cup sugar as many people recommended which still wasn't quite sweet enough so the next time I made it, i threw in a hand full of chocolate chips and it made all the difference. If you make the whole recipe though, it's very large. I make about 1/3 of the portion each time and it makes a large soup bowl full already. Saying that, since I didn't make the full portion, the microwave time is much less. I cooked it for 2.5 mintues and it became a rock. For 1/3 of the portion, 1.75 minutes is plenty. It also rises quite a bit so remember not to fill your bowl to the top, you need a larger bowl. Don't forget to grease your bowl too.. I had a hard time taking it out when I didn't grease it enough. Other than that, the cake is very yummy and convenient. Will make it again.

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
I thought that this recipe was very bland. I would have decreased the amount of water and added more apple juice. I ended up adding some brown sugar to it at the end and increasing the amount of cinnamon.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Fried up nicely but it was very bland. Salt and pepper just didn't do it. I think I needs more spices.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
Instead of the shortening, I used 2/3 cup of butter and found that the cookie as it was too buttery and greasy with the full cup. It was also a little too sweet for my liking. I ended up using the full cup of brown sugar but cutting the white sugar down to 1/4 cup. Other than that, the consistency of the cookie was very nice and the taste was also pleasant. I would have added a little more cinnamon though, just because I like it to have a little more of a kick. The cookies stay moist for a at least a week.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
First time making it and it was delicious. I don't like raisins though so I left those out. (Edit: Second time around I've reduced the amount of sugar to 1/4cup and found it perfect). Other than that, the steps were easy to follow and I was very happy with the results. Everyone who has tried it has loved it!
