Coconut-Lime Sorbet

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2013
Outstanding! For everyone who claims this "isn't sweet enough", double-check your ingredients. Coconut milk is what you buy in the intl food/Thai section of the store. This is NOT what you want. The correct ingredient, 'cream of coconut' is insanely sweet, and is located in the liquor section, with the cocktail mixers (lime juice, grenadine, sweet and sour mix, etc).

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
The spice ratios are way off. They would be better called 'Clove Muffins'.

Slow-Braised Beef and Cherry Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
This is like homemade Chef Boyardee! I found it a bit plain - if you saw the video, definitely spice it up as Chef John suggests. Even following his recommendations, it was still bland. I would also add a generous amount of frozen peas at the end of the cooking time, to help offse the blandness. The meat turned out great. Don't worry about the sauce being too watery - the pasta will suck it all in, and it will actually turn out a bit dry. I'll use less pasta next time.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
This only gets 1 star, becaues the instructions are so bad that I can't figure out how to make it. The ingredients specify '2 eggs', but the instructions state 'stir in scrambled eggs'. Do you just whip them and add them raw? All at once, or drizzled? Or is there supposed to be a step where you place them in a pan and scramble them over heat?

Creamed Cabbage

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
This recipe just isn't good. I used fresh cabbage from my garden, and followed the recipe exactly. The leaves are so greasy that the cream sauce isn't even sticking to them. The flavor isn't that great, either. I prefer Beth's Scalloped Cabbage.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
I read many of the reviews before I made these...seems like everyone re-wrote the recipe before they rated it! The comments about it being too dry/dense/moist really bother me, when the reviewer made substitutions that drastically alter the batter proportions. So I made these muffins exactly according to the recipe. They're moist and tasty. 5 stars.

Dad's Magic Bar Olives

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
I saw this recipe on Kathleen's Allrecipes blog, and the pictures were enough to convince me to try it. Very good. I've always had trouble getting breaded coatings to stick with other recipies, but this one is no-hassle, and the result look professional.

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I've never even seen a yam for sale in the U.S., so I was forced to substitute with sweet potato. The result was just ok.

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
The camelized sugar makes a nice presentation, but it really doesn't have any caramel flavor. If I make this again, I will make my homemade caramel sauce (carmelize sugar in water, then mix with half & half or whipping cream), and drizzle the sauce over each serving. This recipe is very easy, but I was a bit dissapointed with the result.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
I'm not a fan of this. The flavor really isn't interesting. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't special. For something this unhealthy, I really wanted it to taste magical! It needed some tang - like a splash of vinegar or a cup of sour cream. This recipe isn't memorable enough to bother tweaking it.

Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
Wow, who knew this was so easy. All the microwaving seemed a bit too involved - i just did it on the stove top. I popped my corn on the stove-top, too. I drizzled the topping and mixed in a large bowl. Worked perfectly. Under 10 minutes from start to finish.

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Delicious. Used a touch of olive oil to keep everything from sticking. They were crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside, similar to a steak fry. Dipped in a butter/brown sugar/vanilla sauce.

Spicy Vegan Potato Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
Delicious. I have a stack of corn from the garden that I needed to use - I skipped the peas/beans/tomatoes and just used fresh corn instead. The spices are perfect and it made a great side dish. Very quick and easy to make.

Fruit Dip VI

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Not a favorite - just tastes like sweetened cream cheese. I tried to fix it by using more vanilla or more sugar. It is ok, but just isn't awesome. I'll make homemade caramel next time I want a sweet fruit dip.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I used 2 eggs and 1 cup bread crumbs. I was a little unsure about the seasoning, since some reviewers said it was bland, and others didn't like the cumin. I substituted 1 TB of a GrillMates powdered marinade from an envelope packet (used 'Southwest' flavor, but any would be good). Skipped the cumin/chili/hot sauce. Delish! Will try this again with different veggies - black olives, shredded carrot, etc. to keep it interesting. Freezes well. Served with lettuce, tomato, and a slice of American on a toasted whole wheat bun.
