Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
Fabulous brownies that make me feel like I was eating something "healthy" ;) Only change I made was adding a 1/2 cup of Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chips. The brownies were soo moist and delicious! I was seriously surprised by how good they were! Thank you for sharing the wonderful recipe!

GREAT Baklava recipe! I followed the other reviewers advice and made the sauce first and let it cool while prep & baking the baklava. I also used a combo of walnuts and pistachios. So simple & delicious! I can't wait to make it again!

Fantastic muffin recipe! The only changes I made was increasing the vanilla to 1 tbsp., adding 1 tbsp. orange rind, adding a pinch of clove, and increasing the nutmeg to 1 tsp. I made 24 mini muffins and 9 large muffins. I also topped them off with Simple Orange Glaze from this site. Absolutely moist & delicious! I will definitely be making these again. Thanks for sharing!

This is a fabulous, easy, & flavorful fish stew! I made a few changes for our preferences: added ½ cup chopped carrots, 1 celery stick chopped, ½ cup corn; subbed 2 fresh jalapenos for the green chilies, sub veggie stock for ckn stock, sub red bell pepper for green, used canned fire roasted diced tomatoes; added 1 tsp. old bay, pinch of Cajun seasoning, 1 extra clove of garlic. Used sour cream instead of yogurt (what I had on hand) and served it with lime wedge & avocado slices on top. Turned out spicy, delicious, and very filling! Thanks for sharing this great recipe. I will definitely be making this again!

Balsamic Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Delicious and lovely sauce! I made a few changes which worked out well: used shallots instead of onions, mixed 1 tblsp of corn starch with milk added that to 1/2 cup of milk in addition to the cream, and added 2 cloves of garlic to the sauce. Also skipped the ckn bouillon granules and doubled the balsamic vinegar & cheese. I mixed the sauce with fresh garlic linguine pasta mixed with sauteed spinach, mushroom, onions, and peppers.

This is a great recipe for seafood pasta! I used half milk & half heavy cream (same measurements), added 1tblsp of Cajun seasoning and sauteed fresh red bell peppers, red onion, and mushrooms with the green onions before adding them to the sauce.

Perfect St. Patrick's Day Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
It wasn't the best chocolate cake but still a very good cake...chocolaty with a hit of earthy tones from the Guinness. It was easy to make and came out tasty. I used 6 tblsp. of Baileys in the frosting but otherwise followed the recipe as is. Everyone at the St. Pats party seemed to enjoy the cake.

Irish Cream Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Great way to make boxed brownies special. Next time I would add a bit more Baileys to the brownie mix...the flavor was not all that noticeable. I used 6 tblsp. of Baileys & 3 cups of powdered sugar and skipped the coffee in for the frosting. I used a little less than half of the frosting for the brownies and the rest for the "Perfect St. Patrick's Day Cake" from this site. I also skipped the toffee baking bits and drizzled the brownies with chocolate ganache instead.....yummy!

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
I loved this cake! Dairy free, cheap to make, quick, and tastes great! I followed the recipe and added 1 cup of Ghirardelli mini-bittersweet chocolate chips to the batter. Also sifted all the dry ingredients before hand and mixed everything up in a big bowl. Keep an eye on the baking time so it doesn’t dry out. Was a bit hit in my office! Thanks for sharing!

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
I made these in 2 batches using Newman's Organic O's in original and mint flavored...both were a big hit! I replaced the semi-sweet chocolate with Ghirardelli bitter-sweet chocolate....amazing! Definitely use a food process for the blending of the cookies and cream cheese. It was easier to mold the truffles if you let the mixture sit in the fridge for 20-30mins. I also let the truffles sit in the fridge for about 4hrs before I dipped them in the chocolate. Using a double boiler for the chocolate made the dipping process pretty painless. Easy & tasty…thanks for sharing!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
This cake was good but not great. I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/3 cup milk, also only 1 cup of bittersweet chocolate chips. It was very moist but lacked in flavor and density...maybe because of the boxed cake mix & pudding?? I actually liked the Crazy Cake recipe from this site better than this one.
