Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
This recipe definitely needs TONS of more cheese than listed on the recipe. 3 ounces to 4 C of flour just doesn't do it for me and my husband.

It's great, however, I like mine medium well so next time, I would bake it longer.

Crepes

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I just made these and o em gee... it's really good! I think the key is to use the blender to make it thus it achieves the right consistency and distribute the ingredients evenly. Used my crepe pan, and also added 2 tsp of pure vanilla into the batter. Delicious! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. =)

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
I really like this recipe! =) Although, I did make some changes according to others' suggestions. I used one can of cream of chicken and a can of cream of mushroom. I added A LOT more cheese than the recipe stated, and used just regular flour tortillas and rottiserie chicken breasts. Very yummy and will definitely make again soon! =)

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
Not as cheesy as I wanted it to be. Followed the other reviews to double the cheese, omitted the eggs and put ritz crackers combined with butter and parmesan cheese on top, which did help the dish's taste to level up. For those reviewers who aren't sure about the veg oil, I'm sure it's to be put into the water/pasta while cooking. It helps the cooked pasta to be too sticky after it reaches al dente point.

Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
This is sooo good! I altered the recipe a bit though. I used 1 tbsp of crushed garlic, 1/2 tbsp ground ginger, 4 bay leaves, 2 1/2 tsp garam masala powder, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp curry powder, and used coconut milk instead of heavy cream. Everything else kept the same. It's sooo yummy and tasty!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
I did what the others recommended. Used two 8 oz can of tomato sauce, and 15 oz of diced tomatoes. Browned the beef with onions and garlic, and put into the crock pot on low heat for around 8 hours. It is very good but still not the best. I actually added two packages of chili seasoning, but the 30% less sodium ones. Added extra 1 tbsp of cumin powder , a tsp of chili powder, and a dash of cayenne pepper.

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
First of all I have to say that this tiramisu is very rich and creamy but overtly sweet. Next time I will cut down the sugar to 3/4 C only. Remember to use heavy whipping cream that is NOT ultra pasteurized since it will be easier to reach to desired volume. I whipped the cream to stiff peak for about 20 min or so. Bought the soft lady fingers and Belgioioso mascarpone cheese at Trader Joe's. From other reviews, I thought mascarpone cheese would be so expensive, but actually my husband and I thought it wasn't bad at all. It was less than $2.50 for each 8 oz package. Since this recipe called for 1 1/4 C, of course we both had to pick up 2 packages for total of less than $5. Oh even with the soft lady fingers, I dipped it into the room temp espresso really quick on both sides, and it didn't turn out to mush at all. Don't worry, dipping would create stronger taste than just brushing.

Jean's Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
It's really tasty!. I sauteed crushed garlic and ginger, chopped green onions with the chicken breasts. Put into the broth a sprig of thyme and rosemary, 2 bay leaves, and it came out really good!. Will make it again sometime.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
I thought I still had cream cheese left in the fridge but instead it was the neufchatel cheese, so I halved this recipe just in case if it didn't turn out right. I was wrong!. Neufchatel cheese worked just fine and definitely put more parmesan cheese, a pinch of nutmeg, and sprinkled with some chopped parsley and basil. I served this also with steamed broccoli and mushrooms. YummY.

Simple Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
I give this a 4 star because nothing still can beat the regular meat lasagna but still for its group, this recipe is one of the best. I used 1 1/2 tsp of crushed garlic, fresh basil instead of dried, and substitute the water with spaghetti sauce. Oh, don't forget to blanch the spinach really quick in hot water and drain it before you use it in the lasagna mixture. 12 ounces of mozzarella rather than 8. It's really yummy, we love it!.

Buckeye Balls II

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
I used only 3 cups of sugar like others but still it was way too sweet. Next time, I probably will only use 2 1/2 C and mix the semisweet choco chips with bittersweet ones. It's better to also just put in 1 TBSP of shortening instead of 2 TBSP per 6 ounce chocolate chips.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2006
I used fresh herbs instead of dry. Stirred in 2 C of chicken broth in total and omitted the liver. Added 1/3 C of chopped pecans, and baked it 45 min covered, and 15 min uncovered. My husband said that this is one of the best stuffing he'd ever had. So Good!

Fried Rice with Cilantro

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
Oh My, I love this fried rice. I didn't use any chicken at all though. Instead, I just put in eggs and vegetables like chopped broccoli, julienned carrots, frozen peas and frozen corn. Used only a little bit of fish sauce and substitute most of it with soy sauce since my husband doesn't like anything too fishy. It was really good!. Next time though I might throw in more basil and cilantro. ThankS for the recipe.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
Yes yes of course, salt to taste. I added a dash of madras curry powder, turmeric powder and garam masala to the marinade and the sauce mixture ( I also added one bay leaf to the sauce). Used evaporated milk instead of heavy cream (I'd rather use coconut milk for a subsitute next time) and I really recommend to omit the jalapeno pepper for people who can't stand spicy food. Overall though, it's good.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
I used this recipe only for the phad thai sauce based on BES review. Then I combined it with the peanut sauce from the "vegetarian phad thai" submitted by Sarah Kai. Anyway, from trials and errors, this is how I make the really good authentic phad thai. Phad thai sauce: 1/2C white sugar, 2 TBSP lemon/lime juice, 1/4C fish sauce, 2 TBSP tamarind pulp soaked in 1/4C water. (stir all and cook in the stove) Peanut sauce for phad thai: Mix together 2 Tbsp peanut oil/sesame oil, 1 1/2C peanut butter, 1/3C water, 1/3C soy sauce, 1C coconut milk, 1 1/4C brown sugar, 1/3C lemon/lime jice. Season with 2 Tbsp garlic powder, 1 Tbsp pprika powder, and cayenne pepper to taste. (when you make the phad thai, just put in as much as you need, which depends on how much noodles you make and store the rest on the fridge/freezer). How to: Stir fry chopped garlic and chopped shallots on the wok/skillet until slightly browned, put in minced dried shrimp, chopped salted radish/turnip, and finely chopped thai chilli peppers. Then, just put in your choice of meat, combined all. Put in the noodles, and then the phad thai sauce until all mixed, then the peanut sauce. After this point, you just set it aside, and make room to fry the eggs. Put the noodles mixture on top of the eggs until it's slightly cooked, and combined. Throw in the chopped unsalted peanuts, garlic chives, bean sprouts and julienned carrots. Garnish with beansprouts and lime wedges.
