Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2002
I've been using this recipe for nearly a year; I can't believe it's taken me this long to rate it...I use it as a base for almost every cake I make; I've made variations with chocolate, peppermint, cardamom, rum, fresh raspberries...pretty much everything comes out perfect. To some of the reviewers who have had trouble with the cake being dense, try beating it slightly longer than specified...also I usually make the white cake and beat the whites separately as suggested, that makes it fluffier. I also usually cook it in a loaf pan, but if you're using a flatter pan (13x9) I find it's better to lower the temperature somewhat to prevent the edges burning. A great basic recipe, though, and it's even low-fat!

Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Basil

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2002
really good meal...I added more veggies but other than that followed the recipe exactly, and it was perfect; great combination of flavours. Oh also I used a combination of fresh and canned tomatoes because that's what I had on hand.

Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2002
this was really good...I marinated the beef beforehand; I think that made it even better. Overall really great flavour though

Black Forest Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2002
this was a really wonderful cake...I only cut it into two layers; after soaking up the alcohol it was kinda dense...also I put half the cherries and frosting between the layers and put the rest on top...everyone was sooo impressed. I guess the amount of coffee is the frosting has been corrected; I actually used more like a tablespoon as well as a bit of the liqueur, and it was really good

Hershey's ® Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2002
This was amazing! it literally took only minutes to make, and was sooo fabulously chocolately...it held up well too, was still good after two days (I made it in advance for a meeting; otherwise it would never have lasted that long!)

Pork with Peaches Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2002
This was pretty good. I actually used leftover homemade teriyaki marinade to marinate the pork, so I can't comment on the marinade ingredients. But it was a good combination with the peaches, and a nice change of pace.

Chicken and Apple Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2002
this was sooo good...although I did change a few things. I cubed the chicken and added some diced vegetables, then poured the sauce over everything, so it was an complete meal when it was finished. Cooked much faster too. Also I cut the recipe in half but still used two apples and lots of curry, plus some garam masala. It came out delicious!

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2002
Absolutely fabulous...I used homemade tomato sauce and the first time I made it I didn't really use enough...it was still good but was much better the second time with lots of tomato sauce.

Fabulous. I actually cooked it in the oven on very low heat, and added a bit of sage. Very tender and tasty.

Spicy Thai Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2001
nice combination of flavours, but very very mild. needs more of pretty much everything, except coconut milk - the sauce was pretty thin

Salmon in Oyster Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2001
good, but disappointing. I love both oyster sauce and salmon so I get I had high expectations, but it doesn't honestly have that much flavour.

Pollo Bella

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2001
fantastic flavour - easy to make too. I'm not a big fan of cream sauces in general, but I made this for my boyfriend and he loved it. very heavy and filling so I wouldn't eat too much of it, but it's sooo good.
