Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
This recipe is missing something... I don't want toothachingly sweet muffins, and these definitely are not. However, these taste almost bitter. My kids ate them, but they requested that I make my blueberry muffins next time. Hard to believe they'd rather eat berries instead of chocolate.

Nana's Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: May 29, 2014
I cheated and used ground beef because I was hungry and didn't want to wait 3 hours. It still turned out well. My entire family cleaned their plates, and that includes my extra special picky eater.

Blueberry Muffins II

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
The basic recipe is okay. It does produce moist muffins. I had to tweak a few things for my family though. 1. There was way too much sugar for us. Especially when adding another 1/4 cup of sugar to the tops, the muffins came out tooth-achingly sweet. 2. I used 1 1/2 cups of blueberries instead of 2 1/2. The muffins still had plenty of berries. I think with the extra cup, there would have been more berries than muffins. 3. The recipe says to bake for 30 minutes. My first batch smelled done at 20 minutes. I went to check on them at 25 min and they were well on their way to burning. Perhaps I live at a higher elevation. Perhaps it depends on the type and size of muffin pan. I don't know. For reference, I used a 12 cup silicon pan. Someone complained that their muffins stuck to the pan and fell apart. I did not have that problem at all. Perhaps that individual did not know how to properly grease their pan. I just used a non-stick coconut spray on mine. If I had used a metal pan, I would have used shortening and then dusted the pan with flour.

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
Loved it! Even my picky eater ate his fill. I took the other reviewers' suggestion and doubled the sauce. I didn't have the Chinese five spice powder, but that's okay as we don't care for overly spicy foods anyway. I actually cut the red pepper by half, even as I doubled the other ingredients. I substituted ginger for the five spice powder. It came out just right - tangy and sweet with a hint of spiciness. I also did not bother with the cornstarch. As others have noted, the sauce thickens up nicely on it's own after simmering for 30 min.
