Apple Turnovers

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
So easy and delicious. I did make some alterations. I didn't soak the apples in the lemon water but instead used lemon juice and zest. I also added some salt and vanilla to the apples. I used three large red delicious and I still had leftovers. Remember to let the filling cool or it will melt the pastry. I also used a puff pastry recipe from this site rather than store bought. Everyone raved! Now I have tons of requests to make this.

Portuguese Custard Tarts - Pasteis de Nata

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Delicious! But the sugar definitely has be cut down in half. A little too sweet but that's a personal preference. So easy to make and cheap as well. I am addicted to these and the bakery sells then for about $1 for one, and I can never eat just one, so definitely easier on my wallet when I make it at home.

Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This must be the easiest and most delicious puff pastry recipe ever. My family raved non stop about it. I used it to make apple turnovers and custard tarts. Next I will make chicken pot pie. Definitely my new go to crust recipe. It is very difficult to screw up. A tip I have is I put everything in a food processor, then dumped it on saran wrap and wrap it up tightly and refrigerate it.

Red Velvet Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
This is the first cake I have ever made and it turned out beautifully. It was also my first time eating read velvet cake. I made it according to suggestions; I used oil, I increased cocoa powder, I had no buttermilk, made sour milk (1 cup of milk+1 tbls vinegar, I did not increase the sugar because with the frosting I think it is sweet enough. Remember to completely fold in the baking soda and vinegar combination, people will be disgusted to take a big bit out of baking soda (very bitter). I stuck to the frosting in this recipe because my family hates cream cheese frosting. I had no problem with it at all, I did use powdered sugar, one suggestion; pour the milk into the flour and whisk at the same time, this prevents it from clumping. I made this for my grandma's birthday with marshmallow fondant (also my first time) on top and I have never had so many praises. FYI, this case stores in the fridge very well, I made it the day before, frosted it and put it in the fridge overnight. I let it get to room temp. before we served it. I then put the leftover in the fridge and ate some later on, this cake tastes better chilled. I am going to make another one for another birthday, can't wait!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
Love this recipe. No store bought or restaurant pot pie could beat this. It is so easy to make and takes no time at all. I didn't use chicken broth, I took the water that was used to boil chicken and veggies because it felt like such a waste to throw that good water away. I also skipped celery and celery seeds because I had none and I am not a fan of the taste. Pie crusts are good for this recipe, but I had leftover puff pastry dough so I used that instead, it turned out even better. Everyone loved this recipe, it is definitely a keeper!

Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
Love love love this!!! I had some leftover whipping cream and I didn't know what to do with it so I made this. I did add a pinch of salt to the melted chocolate. When I took it off the stove to cool, I stirred in 1 tsp of vanilla. Also, I only used 1 cup of whipping cream because that was all I had left and it turned out great. So yummy with berries but oh so fattening.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
Delish! Everyone in my family loved it. I didn't do the butter and almond things, I just toasted it slowly in the oven. I also didn't have white wine vinegar so I used balsamaic vinegar. I did have to add some salt to the dressing though it was too bland for my taste and I cut down on oil and sugar. Thanks for a great recipe.

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
This is the tiramisu recipe! I've tried another one on here because it had more reviews but this one has a better star rating. I had nothing leftover, this recipe was perfect. I did double the coffee and I used every last drop. I had nothing left over, even ladyfingers were all used up. This tiramisu is even better than the one I usually buy from a fancy bakery. It's cheaper to make this than buy the cake in store. Love it!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
This was my first time eating and making guacamole. I use to see it on t.v. all the time and thought it was gross, but everyone was always eating and raving about it so I set out to find the perfect recipe and I found it. So delicious, I make for parties all the time now and everyone fights for some. I just omitted the oil as said by some reviewers. Thanks for a great recipe!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
My first time making fondant so I was quite nervous, I have never even eaten fondant before. It was a big success. My creations looked store bought. I though I messed it up because it was so sticky,soft and floppy, but nothing a little icing sugar couldn't solve. My go to fondant recipe from now on, thanks!
