Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2014
Changed to 1/2 cup cocoa powder and 2/3 cup flour, then added a splash (got a big splash, gonna learn how to control that next time) of coffee liquer. Baked them as cupcakes for 15 minutes, and placed a mini kiss on top of each one right after I took them out of the oven (just feel like doing it). Gosh, they are soooooooo good! Not too sweet, and just the right chocolatey taste I wanted, even if I overdid the liquer (I can feel the alcohol, oh no!!). Definitely hits the chocolate craving spot! I got a cake-like brownie, though. I'm gonna stick to the 1/2 cup flour QTY next time. Thank you, Angie! I'm gonna go cry now..

Clara's White German Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2013
I made these into cupcakes with these changes: 6.5 ounces white chocolate buttons, 2 cups all-purpose flour + 2T corn starch (no cake flour), 1/2 cup margarine (already using sour cream and doubled the chocolate), 1.5 cups white sugar, 1 cup sour cream (no buttermilk), and left out the coconut and pecans. Baked them in a convection toaster oven at 325F for 10 minutes (mini cupcakes) or 15 minutes (for regular cupcakes). They were a little sweet for me, but my officemates say they are great! I got a request to make some 3 dozens for our christmas party! Next time I'll use better quality chocolate. Thanks for the recipe!

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
This food keeps reminding me that I'm lactose-intolerant, hahaha! But it's so good I don't wanna stop eating! Hubby even took some from my plate coz he already ate all his portion. I used canned tuna (about 14-15 oz, drain the liquid), 1.5 tsps red pepper flakes, and 4tsps dried parsley, instead of shrimp, cayenne and fresh parsley.. I don't think we have jarred Alfredo sauce from where I live (AND I don't wanna buy pre-made sauces from pouches coz I don't know what else they put in there) so I made my own alfredo sauce using Rebecca Swift's Alfredo Sauce from this site also (doubled the sauce recipe; and the sauce is not salty so you can adjust the saltiness to your liking). This will be my go-to recipe from now on! Thank YOU.....!!

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
So creamy I could die....... Only changes I made: used close to 1/4 cup unsalted margarine instead of butter, added 3 cloves of garlic and half an onion (minced and diced) while melting the margarine, and grated parmesan cheese only. I love how smooth the texture of the sauce is! I topped my linguine alfredo with canned tuna flakes and canned sliced button mushrooms (both drained). My hubby went back for seconds! Oh, and this was already enough for 12oz uncooked weight of linguine, just enough for 3. Thank you, B.Mason!!

Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
(writing this review right after cooking, and while eating, this mac'n'cheese) This is the 3rd recipe I've tried (other 2 from this site also) and so far this is the simplest mac'n'chiz recipe I had tried, and I will stick with this one! First of all, I didn't have enough milk (only 2/3c) so I used the pasta cooking water for the rest. Used only 2T flour, only 1 8oz Monterey Jack and 3oz Mild Cheddar as the cheeses, and 1/3t granulated garlic and 3/4t onion powder since I don't have mustard. I should have left out the 1/2t salt since my pasta water is already salted, but I don't mind! And I didn't bother about the topping since I don't own an oven :) I may have made some changes, but I could say that IF I HAD FOLLOWED the original recipe to a T, I would be crying my heart out at every bite! Thanks for the recipe, VPATTISON! I could kiss you! :) :) :)

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: May 14, 2013
I halved the recipe and made them into pancakes instead (I still have to buy a waffle-maker). I must say! They are sooooo GOOD! I added 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp for the original recipe) of cinnamon then cut the salt to half. Not too sweet; the maple syrup made it just right. My very-picky nephew-in-law even loved it! Will make them again! Half the recipe made 4 pancakes (1/3 cup batter).

Lamb Shawarma

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
I didn't add the lemon juice coz I'm afraid it'll be too sour just like the other recipe, and I didn't have mace, so I added allspice instead. It was flavorful! Maybe I'll add half the required lemon juice next time. Thanks for the recipe :)

Microwave Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2012
Finally! A microwaved cake! I tried other recipes here (ones that require the conventional oven, with preheating process) but used my microwave oven, and the result was not that pleasing: the cake turned out soggy, or parts of it were uncooked! I haven't tried making this yet, but here's a tip to anyone who wants to make cakes from the conventional oven recipes and bake 'em in the microwave oven: reduce the water content in the recipe by 1/3. That way you won't get a soggy cake after the specified cooking time. AND! don't overcook the cake in the microwave, or else it'll dry up after the standing time and you'll get a hard cake instead of a soft, sliceable one. A 15- or 30-second excess time on high can spell DISASTER to your microwaved cake! Happy Baking!

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
DID IT IN THE MICROWAVE!! I halved the recipe just to try it out (had trouble computing a fourth). PERFECT! (I did reduce the sugar to about the same weight as the flour I used). I reduced the boiling water by 1/3 its original quantity, since I'll be baking it in a microwave oven, added a teaspoon of Nescafe to the cocoa powder, then left the rest unaltered. I filled my 4-inch ramekins half-full then baked them one by one in my microwave for 2.5 minutes on Medium-Low (#3 of 7 power levels) and they came out great! This is gonna be the recipe for my daughter's birthday cake and cupcakes! THANK YOU!!!!
