Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2013
These were wonderful, and turned out perfectly! I added the egg to the measuring cup, and poured in the milk until it reached a cup, as per other review. Perfection! I might make it a wee bit less sweet next time, but lovely how it is.

Stir Fried Snow Peas and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
This was fantastic! Even I, the self declared mushroom hater [I sliced them very thin, to help ;) ] adored this!! My husband and my three young children wolfed the dish down, and I've already added it to my personal recipe book- a sign of a sure winner. Follow it exactly and it will be fabulous! Mushrooms MAKE this dish, do NOT exclude!! The sesame seeds took quite awhile for me to brown- it took quite a high heat at the end, as at over 12 mins on med they weren't browning yet.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
This was the BEST! Finally I've found a way to satisfy my wing craving without looking for babysitters for a trip to the local pub. YUM! We tried these both deep fried and baked, and both were delicious. I actually think I preferred the baked though! The skin was crunchier, which to me is a bonus! --[tip to those without a deep fryer- I put a glass casserole dish in the oven, half full with oil and heated to 375. I then put the wings in to fry. Be cautious when opening the oven- I originally put in too much oil and it started to burn on the bottom when spilled, causing my eyes to water. Open door with face turned away!].-- I also used the leftover wing sauce as dipping sauce- I just added more Franks to spice it up a bit more and DELICIOUS!!

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
This. is. delicious!!! I made the pie with the suggested substitute of cornstarch rather than the flour [as the author noted in the intro], and the texture was perfect. No runniness here! I've never made Banana Cream Pie from scratch before, so when I initially made the custard I thought it was decent, but I had no idea how the banana flavor would compare- the baking of the pie made the bananas soften and seemingly melt into the custard, filling it with a rich and even flavor. It's not comparable to storebought or artificial flavoring- it's simply blows them all out of the water! I started with a thin layer of custard on the bottom, then alternated thinly sliced [5mm?]bananas and thin layers of custard. The final layer of bananas I completely covered in custard, and the result was evenly softened bananas with no browning- perfection! I filled the pie just over the top [slightly domed] because I had so much filling for my smallish crust [I think it'd be perfect for a deepdish or homemade], and the way it settled was perfect. A thick layer of real, lightly sweetened whipped cream finished it off perfectly and made it melt in your mouth. If you don't intend to serve the entire pie I'd suggest putting whipped cream on the pieces individually, or the cream may deflate/melt overnight. Absolutely phenomenal: our company raved about it and the recipe has been requested multiple times. Definitely a keeper!!!

Four Egg Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
I made this recipe side-by-side the Wilton Basic Yellow Cake... there's simply no comparison! I made this exactly as stated [with exception of sifting the flour], even though I dislike using shortening, and it's incredible. We had a blind taste test for our family- my three year old and five year old both adamantly declared this one the winner, and my husband and I had no hesitation declaring this our favorite as well. It is light, moist [incredibly, lovely and moist, so much like my favorite chocolate cake!], and very delicate. Not crumbly or grainy, or 'eggy' or dry, it is the perfect, PERFECT cake. I can't rave enough. I have been searching years for the right cake to add to my recipe book [only tried and tested recipes get written down] and this has already been added!! Honestly, I have tested more recipes than I can keep track of now, nothing coming close to this. Phew, no more searching! Thank you, thank you, for this lovely cake! It will be a highlight at many many birthdays to come. Edit: I'm now reading the poor reviews in shock. This cake is absolutely not like cornbread [yes, I have come across this in other recipes!!], and is so light! I truly think this must be user error. I know after reading several cookbooks/baking books that mixing is key. Yes, creaming the butter is vital, but it's once all of the ingredients are combined that's key- mix it at least 1min on med/high after you think it's done. Try it!

Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2013
These are really tasty!! The best pancakes I have had in years! But.... they needed a LOT more milk. I doubled the recipe and added over 1.5c more milk, so over 3/4c more per single recipe. [only reason it's not 5*, this is a fairly big difference] I also added about a .5 tsp of vanilla extract. YUM!!

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
This was good! I didn't find it outstanding on it's own, but definitely good. I'm in agreeance with the rest of the reviews that say it's not very Mexican on its own, but I made and served it with the Pico de Gallo [added lime and more cilantro to the latter recipe] and it made the entire dish phenomenal! I've added both to my personal recipe book: this is the sign of a winning recipe. Thanks!

Pico De Gallo

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2013
As written it's good.. but it's exceptional if you up the cilantro [I used about a 1/3 of a bunch] and squeeze in the juice of one lime. Truly exceptional! I had chopped my onion fine.. and diced my tomato small.. but I then poured the bowl out and minced it much smaller. It allowed for the full bang in each bite, instead of tasting just one ingredient. Must make this!! I'll be making it regularly: our whole family [including our 5, 3, and 1.5 yo] loved it!

Spinach and Potato Frittata

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2013
I was pretty disappointed by this, actually. It has a lot of potential, but exactly as written, it's lacking in flavor. I was just itching to add seasoning to the potatoes, so I came to check on reviews.. after seeing so many mentions of it, I sprinkled them with garlic powder [after already succumbing to the urge to salt them]. I was sorely tempted to cook with butter instead of olive oil, but it was already in the pan... Anyway, it was edible, but lacking in serious flavor. This COULD be wonderful- add more seasoning along the way, add in some more flavorful ingredients [it's just asking for tomatoes!] As written, it's pretty blah.

Hamburger Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
I was really disappointed in this! With such a high rating I was expecting a delicious soup! I followed the recipe to a 't', but after one hour of cooking it was extremely salty, and just ... not good. I got my husband to taste it, and he sort of cringed. [oh- actually I did cook the gr.beef with minced garlic... so I DID deviate slightly in the beginning!] To salvage it I added over 2 cups of water, some ground pepper, a tsp of cayenne pepper, over a tsp of oregano, and about 1/4 cup of ketchup [I chose this over sugar because it was at my fingertips]. End result was good, though I likely won't be making this again. I can imagine that added barley would be a great addition to this [though you'll likely want to add a bit more water]. My thoughts on the problem is that perhaps different companys bouillon is different strengths? I used Knorr, and on the side of the box it said to dissolve each cube in 2 cups of water... I went against my intuition and used the 6 cubes recommended in the recipe. The end result might have been better had I lessened the number of cubes used. My first time using beef bouillon, so lesson learned!
