Tropical Carrot-Apple Juice

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
I screwed around with the recipe since i didnt have pineapple, celery, ginger, nor a juicer, so i used a blender and added in some orange juice in place of what i was missing. The results came out pretty tasty and sweet enough to leave out the sugar.

Almond Rum Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
I used the basis of this recipe to make a very rummy cake that came out super good. What I changed: Swap almond extract for equal amounts of rum extract. Leave out the lemon zest. Swap the 2 tsp. lemon juice for rum. leave out the almonds & use a rum glaze made with 3 tbsp butter, 3/4 cups brown sugar, 1/4 white sugar, and +-1/2 cup rum of your choice. Dissolve sugar in melted butter, remove from heat and stir in rum. Yum!

Amaretto

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
O-M-G. Seriously, I'm an amaretto addict, and I don't care for vodka. But did this ever come out awesome!!! I just made the stuff-super easy! & I am so ready for a second drink! A bit sweeter than usual, but that just means one less step for my amaretto sours! Now i only need limes, water and ice-Yum to the Max!

Bacon Asparagus Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Pretty dang awesome. Taste is certainly 5 stars, but the proportions are way off, so thats why I'm giving it the 4 star rating. I'll definitely be making this again.

Basic Cheese Polenta

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
I used a little bit less cheese, added fresh basil, pepper, sundried tomatoes & used it for the italian summer squash bake. I'm not sure I would make this as written without some added spice- I don't approve of anything that doesn't have a lot of flavor. With add-ins this recipe is a definite keeper.

Stuffed Pattypan Squash

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Made this with the addition of blue cheese, fresh basil & bell pepper and used panko instead of bread crumbs & was it good! Boil em til they're good n soft, 10 minutes wasn't nearly long enough for me.

Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
This needs a lot more berry in it, its too bready as written. Also, I don't melt a 1/2 cup of butter in the pan. I just butter the bottom and use half the butter called for.

Beetnik Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
I really like this cake, but I really like beets too. I boiled & peeled the beets & threw em in the blender instead of grating so I didnt have to wait for them to cool. (What beet I couldn't scoop out, I used for a smoothie with what was left of a 20 oz can of crushed pineapple after I used a cup in the cake, plus some other fruits.) I also used half applesauce-half oil, added coarse chopped almonds, and frosted with lime cream cheese frosting. On the second day, the beet color soaked through the frosting so it was a pretty marbled pink color. Nice!

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
This is soooo good, I make it pretty often. But, cook the taters first and throw em in at the end. Also, I never use heavy cream- why fatty up such a good vegetable dish? I prefer about a half cup of coconut milk, seems more *right*

Judy's Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
It was alright. The crust stuck to the bottom of the glassware and made for terrible presentation but still tasted alright til it got soggy. Don't think I'll be makin this again though...

Sticky Date Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
My bf took one bite and declared it the best date dessert I ever made, and getting dates by the kilo several times a year, I make a lotta date recipes. This made 24 mini cupcakes (cooked for 12 minutes first) plus 5 regular sized cupcakes and fearing all the fat I cut the butter down to 1/2 C for the sauce, it wouldda been too much with a full cup. Soo good!

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
These bars are really lacking in texture & taste. I don't think I approve of using egg in granola, its chewy & unappealing & now im stuck with a big pan of this so now im suffering through them-yes, *suffering*. Find another recipe!

Authentic Thai Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
I used this recipe as a base, with a couple changes: Since the shrimp's not too cool to eat here, (Thanks a lot BP!) i used scallops, clams, and tuna. I made the broth all the same, but ginger instead of galangal, zest instead of lime leaf, and left out the curry powder. when I cooked the clams, i used 1/4 cup water/coconut milk mix to steam em, and added all that juice to the soup as well. The tuna, i seared up a filet after marinating it in a oil/thai chili/lime sauce, thin sliced it, and laid it out on top the soup. Delicious! loved how it was all limey-fishy. My bf was super pleased to come home to that :)
