Basic Microwave Risotto

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
This is just as good as making it over the stovetop! I did need additional broth (about 1/2 cup), which I just heated in the microwave before adding.

Oyster Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
I made it per the recipe, with the addition of the potatoes...it pretty much tasted like drinking half and half with butter.

Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
I wasn't a big fan, but both DH and DD loved them. Five stars for that, plus they were very easy to make. I have a convection oven, so 8 minutes at 325 was the right settings for me.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
Pretty good - DD said it was a bit bland though, and she normally only likes bland things! I'll definitely make it again, but add more seasoning next time.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
This really is better than any other flourless chocolate torte from any fine restaurant (and believe me, I've tried quite a few!). I think most of the poor reviews must be from people who don't know what to expect - definitely NOT a cake like texture, or even fudge or cheesecake like. And yes, it is very rich, and should be served cut in the smallest slice you can manage, and savored in small mouthfuls. It has a wonderful, dry but silky texture which will literally melt in your mouth. Also, any chocolate lovers will thank you for NOT adding anything that will ruin that texture - nuts, granola, sauces with seeds, etc. I did not have a 10" pan, so I scaled the recipe to 10 servings so it would fit into my 8" pan. The scaling resulted in 3 and 3/4 eggs, which I interpreted as 3 whole eggs, and 1 egg white. I also reduced my baking time to 38 minutes since I had a smaller cake. I was a bit impatient after I took it out of the fridge, and tried to slice it right away, resulting a some crumbling - it was much better when I waited 30 minutes, and also used the tip about running the knife under hot water in between slices. Thanks Maggie - my daughter (who also is a chocolate lover) said that we no longer need to order the expensive torte from the gourmet chocolate store!

Heavenly Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
This is a really great cake! It is very light and fluffy. Followed instructions to the letter but greased the pan with a little bit of oil because some reviewers said they had a hard time getting it out of the pan. Came out perfect anyway. Thanks, Fayrene!

I made this exactly as per the recipe; this is the first salad my 8 year old ate, and she asked for seconds!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2004
Whatever you do, DON'T use large muffin tins - I tried to make 6 large ones instead of 8 and ended up with a mess - soggy on the inside, burnt on the outside...my 5 year old liked it, though, and she's pretty picky, so I guess I'll try it again.
