Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
This is what I did. The night before, I pulled a 4 lb pork shoulder out of my freezer, let it thaw, threw it into my slow cooker unseasoned and then emptied some Dr. Pepper over it (12 ounce bottle). I didn't have any root beer on hand. I didn't even bother with adding spices to it, didn't put salt, or a lick of seasoning on it beforehand. Why bother, it's going to get drowned in bbq sauce anyway and I was tired. OMG, easiest dinner to make ever...and SO GOOD! Two thumbs up!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Great recipe! It was my first time making a cheesecake and I followed the recipe and came out with almost perfect results. The cheesecake was a little too brown on the top for my tastes and it did crack (no water bath but did put a pan of water underneath the middle rack that I baked the cheesecake at). The taste though! It was so yummy and everyone really loved it. Some claimed it was the best they had ever had because of its moistness. I added lemon juice to mine and it enhanced the flavor tremendously. This is a purist's cheesecake so keep that in mind when making this.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
This was a really great recipe! Everyone loved it! I didn't have the individual spices available so I marinated the chicken in 1 tbsp of garam masala (I found it at walmart in paste form in the indian food area) and then made the sauce with 2 tbsp of garam masala. I also had a little cardamom so I added 1/2 tsp to it because it felt like it was missing that warmth factor. SO YUMMY! Greek yogurt is very good as it's thick and sticks to the chicken. Marinate it overnight! It's so tender and juicy! I could have made a meal with just the chicken itself. This recipe is very comparable to anything you'd find at a good indian restaurant.

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
I had been craving Tiramisu for quite some time so I decided to try this recipe! You've really got to make a STRONG coffee/liquor mixture for this dessert to really shine. I went with a weaker combination for people who don't like the taste of strong coffee that I was serving it to and regretted it because it really would have made this stand out. My fault. Be sure to soak them for an adequate amount of time and to work quickly because they are very fragile. Add 1 tbsp of vanilla extract to the custard mixture (do combine the whipped cream and egg mixture). I also decreased the amount of sugar to a 1/2 cup as I didn't want it to be too sweet (ladyfingers had a sugar crust) and used 1/2 lb of reduced fat cream cheese and 1/2 lb of mascarpone (it's expensive!) and it tasted yummy. Let it sit for 24 hrs and I recommend Disaronno or Kahlua over the rum. :)

Creamy Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
Oh my goodness. I never thought banana pudding could be this good but I was missing out! I first was introduced to this recipe by my ex-boyfriend's family and I just couldn't believe that the terrible stuff I was served in grade school shared the same name as this heavenly creation! Yummy stuff! Every time I make it, everyone raves. Really classic recipe and it can't be improved.

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
I had never tasted a German Chocolate cake before I set out to make this cake for my bf's birthday! He and the entire party LOVED this cake! He even declared it the best ever! I only made two layers and used the leftovers for cup cakes that I took to work. Reduce the amt of sugar in the cake to 1 and 1/2 cups (you won't notice it if you use the german frosting as it is very sweet), I added 2 oz of chocolate to the cake, and made sure to add a little cream of tarter to whip the whites (MUST DO THIS if you want stiff peaks). Do not overmix the batter, as it has a deliciously tender yet fragile crumb. Gingerly use a spatula and mix by folding the whites in from swiping the outer rim of the bowl. Yes, it takes a while. Yes, you will be rewarded. I used the directions for the frosting on the box that was listed in one of the comments-more than enough. I put German frosting in the center (generously) and I frosted the cake in chocolate frosting. I than decorated the top with the German Frosting. Took me 3 days (letting the cake sit in the pans and cool overnight helps a ton during the unmolding as well as lining the bottom with greased parchment paper) and well worth the hard work! Stick with the cake recipe-it's much better than any box mix and my friend is actually now using that same recipe for the groom's cake! It's really that good!
