American Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
Really Yummy Lasagna! I made several changes and some based on other reviews. Used 1 pound hot italian sausage and 1 pound regular italian sausage. I omitted the parsley since we both didn't really care for it. Used two 15 ounce low fat ricotta cheese and reduced the amount of salt for the cheese mixture to 1/2 tsp only. Put more garlic and dried oregano, and the sauce got a little too thick so I added around 1/2 C of traditional spaghetti sauce into the sauce mixture. You just add it until it gets to the thickness you prefer. Also, I used the Barilla no boil lasagna. I noticed some people used this and turned out bad. Mine turned out perfectly the same as the regular boil lasagna. The only difference is that the no boil one saves so much time!. Since I used the no boil lasagna, it took 50 minutes covered and 20 minutes uncovered. ( I chilled my lasagna overnight before baking). Don't forget to use the non stick coating spray onto the foil so the cheese don't stick. Next time, I might add some pepperoni and try to use 9 noodles instead of 12. Mine turned out soooooo good already though. Thanks a lot for the recipE!

General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2006
Wow, to be honest, I was a little bit skeptical and thought that this recipe would just turn out okay. I'm very picky when it comes to Asian dishes but I'm just so glad that I gave it a try coz' it turned out to be a really tasty dish. It really is similar to the General Tso's chicken I used to have. I did however, halved the recipe since I wanted to make sure first that this would be a success. Doubled the garlic called for it, reduced the amount of vinegar, stir fried and NOT deep fried the chicken, and everything else just followed what the recipe says. I also didn't put dry chilli coz' I didn't have any, instead I put a little bit of ground chilli (the kind you found at Asian grocery store) and put black pepper powder as desired. After the chicken and sauce were mixed and thoroughly combined, I drizzled some sesame oil into it. This totally made the dish even better!!! You gotta try it, absolutely delicious. =)

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2006
This is really yummy scones. I still can't give it a 5 star though coz' it's still not like the scones texture that me and hubby always had in this famous cafe here in Washington.

Cowboy Cookies III

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2006
these cookies are okay. Not bad, not really good either. My husband thought there was something missing there in the texture. I also was little dissappointed with the flat appearance. It was way too flat. Over all, it's just a pretty good cookie, but I will try another oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2006
Alright, this is totally soft and fluffy. Followed the recipe exactly, poured the mixture of milk and egg slowly into the dough only until moistened, and had no problem with the kneading. I like it very much but this isn't exactly what I was looking for in a scone. It's more like biscuits or rolls?! Still gonna search for the flaky, "pie doughy" scones recipe. ThankS anyway.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
These rolls are darn good. My hubby actually loves this the best compared to the other cinnamon rolls recipes I tried before. Although, ... I still vote for the Cinnamon Rolls III somehow... This one though makes a big size rolls that just impress everyone. heheh. I don't have a bread machine so what I did was warmed up the milk, stirred in 1/4C of sugar, then put in the yeast. Waited for 10 min until it foamed up. In another bowl, combine the flour and salt. Melted the butter, let it cool slightly (you wanna make sure everything is in room temp), and beat the eggs just until combined. Then, I mixed in the eggs, butter, and remained 1/4C of sugar into the yeast mixture, put in the flour mixture 1 C at a time, and knead. Try not to add too much flour during this process. Follow the directions afterwards. For the frosting, I used 4 ounce of cream cheese instead of 3 and 1 C of confectioners sugar instead of 1 1/2. It's the perfect taste and sweetness for me. Baked it at 350 for 20 -25 min. I luckily never experienced uncooked or dense dough in the middle. This is totally worth the effort and time. Thank you for the recipE!

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
WoW! I never thought that these would actually came out sooo good. Honestly. Me and hubby just devoured them and they tasted so similar to Cinnabon. For a home baked cinnamon rolls, this is darn good! I used the "Clone of a Cinnabon" frosting coz' it's da bomb diggity, and also put most of the vanilla pudding mix but not all of it. Thank you so much for the recipe. I am sooo happy with these rolls, thinking how much money we can actually save rather than buying those famous rolls at the mall.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2006
the texture was okay but not as soft and fluffy as I wanted it to be and also not sweet enough. I was expecting a sweet dinner roll just like it says. I still think my sweet rolls recipe is better than this. Thanks anywaY.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2006
I followed other reviews and subsitute apple sauce for the butter and it just didn't make any big difference, I also put in some chocolate chips in it. My hubby said that the frosting really makes it good although this brownies is still not the best.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
It's flaky, however I still have to say that the "Best ever Pie Crust" from this site still tops it all. Just make sure that you chilled the shortening and milk first. You want to work fast since you don't want the fat to melt and make your crust harden and less flakier.

Apple Dumplings I

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2006
It's sooo good! Hmmm Yummm... I halved the apples, sliced it thinly but made sure it was still in tact, used the "best ever pie crust" recipe from this site which truly is the best!, instead of biscuits, and it still came out delicious. Substitute the water with OJ, half brown sugar half white sugar, baked it dry 10 min, flip it over and baked for another 10 min, poured the sauce on, put it back to the oven for another 15 to 20 min. SOOO GOOD!

This is soo good. My fiance just called me from lunch break today and said that he can't wait to have more of this creamy rich pudding when he gets home later. If he even thought about it during work, this must be really good!.
