Spinach Basil Pesto

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
Excellent and easy (and forgiving). I burned some pine nuts and it didn't seem to matter much. I doubled the recipe and (since pine nuts are so expensive) used 1c pine nuts, 1/2 c. slivered almonds. toasted them all together on the stove top. it's amazing.

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
I loved this because there's no sugar and it tastes great! My husband hates red sauce but he loved this.

Lemon Cupcake with Blackberry Buttercream

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
I ended up with a lot of extra frosting but it was so good people ate it straight. Don't change a thing. One thing to note: I made this a second time, halving the icing recipe and I used natural/organic butter (Kerigold)... I needed to add more than necessary to get it to whip up properly. Tasted great though, it just needed 2-3 extra tablespoons of butter. When I made it with normal (land o' lakes) I didn't need to change anything.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
Really easy, followed the recipe exactly. My husband, who hates sweets but loves pineapple upside down cake, ate most of it in one sitting.

Green Tea Layer Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
This was great just the way it was. Hubby generally dislikes cake and baked goods but this isn't too sweet and he ate more than his share of his birthday cake!

Chocolate Pretzels

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
Favorite easy-to-make snack food for a crowd. It always disappears within 5 minutes though. I love making this with nuts so it tastes like a turtle. also, a great way to use up m&ms before they expire :)

Authentic French Meringues

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Well, I didn't get 36 out of this but i also didn't use a piping bag so it's all good. Anyway, I signed up specifically to say that these are really good and really easy. I used my kitchen aide and the whipping time took about 15 minutes. My boyfriend who doesn't like sweets just hid some behind his back before telling me he's had about 5 since I started cooking (2 hours ago). They took me about 1.5 hours to cook. I'm going to make some more last minute for passover! Oh, Also, after everything was completely done, before spooning onto the cookie sheet, i added a tsp of pure vanilla (none of the imitation stuff, but liquid vanilla extract). Excellent.

Roasted and Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2013
I used 1 cup of coconut cream (the solid part when coconut milk separates in the can) instead of milk. I used veggie broth too (my aunt is a sikh so she's vegetarian). We all loved it.

PJ's Sweet Potato Mash

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
I love these potatos. I made them last thanksgiving and everyone loved them (I omitted the sugar all together). The next day, I took the leftovers (I made a double batch for 6 people ... we're talking not a lot of leftovers), I added about 3 carrots and half a squash (boiled and roasted respectively) and it tasted the same but we had enough to go around the next day. Excellent share. thanks PJ!

Ghirardelli Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
This was a great, and very easy, recipe. Use the whole egg... I don't know why people insist on changing recipes before they try them. I only had semi-sweet bakers chocolate which ended up being a little sweet (but my husband and I are on the paleo diet so most things are sweet to us). I suspect that if I used the suggested bittersweet chocolate, it would have been perfect. -- semi sweet chocolate was excellent as well, I just might cut back on the sugar if I use semi-sweet again. *** NOTE: Mine came out runny so I poured it into individual serving dishes and let them set up over night (I think 2 hours would have worked though). Once I got to it, it was the consistency of serious mousse and I am confident that I could pipe it at that point to make it look like the posted picture. It needs to set first!

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2013
This cake is SO EASY! I've made three of them in the span of one week. I brought one to Passover and two to my husband's pHd defense. The professors LOVED it (including one with celiacs) and everyone wanted the recipe. Don't change a thing. I do have to mention that when I can't find bittersweet chocolate, I use semi-sweet and cut down the sugar a bit. I did the first one with semi-sweet without altering the sugar and it was still great, but some of the adults were a little overwhelmed by the sweetness.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
I've made this twice and it's very easy and forgivable if you don't have enough of a certain ingredient. The critisism is that it's a little too sweet. I made it today for my hubby and was about 1/2 c shy of 3c of the sweetened condensed milk and it was still too sweet. I think if I used the 2 cans of condensed milk (2.5 c) and 1 c sour cream (instead of 1/2 c) it would have been absolutely perfect.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
The dough tastes great (they're in the oven right now). There is WAY too much sauce. Cut it down to 25% (1/8 cup of condensed milk and 1/4 cup of chocolate chips).

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
This was FABULOUS. That being said, there was way too much sugar. What I mean is that I made this in a standard 9" pie pan and had a THICK layer of the sugar/cinnamon layer over the 'crust' and still had about 2/3 of it left over. Only make 1/3 of the sugar to sprinkle on top and you have a serious winner.

Passover Chocolate Torte

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Although the crumblies that came off the top taste good, it fell apart after trying to get it out of the pan. Once i finally did get it out it was so moist that i could actually take a knife and spread the cake over the cracks to fix it. Hoping to get the pretty top it origionally had (which is now on the bottom after flipping it out) I stuck it on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven for 20 more minutes. It seems to have sortof worked. I'm bringing it to my family tomorrow, hope it tastes as good as people say it is!
