Doggie Birthday Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2014
This is a great recipe for dogs! I did make a few changes to it though that are not drastic and really don't require any extra work. I changed the flour to rice flour as it is easier to digest for dogs and I cut the amount of carrot in half and instead added in half of a mashed banana. I also baked them in a cupcake pan so it would be a small cake for my dog because she has a sensitive stomach. I also added a frosting made of fat free Greek yogurt and peanut butter. with a tiny bit of honey. She devoured it!

Boiled Bagels

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
Great recipe! I used someone else's suggestion of putting molasses in the water instead of sugar, and the outsides came out crisp and brown. The insides are chewy and tasty. I used a heavy duty baking stone when baking mine. It took around 30-35 minutes just like the recipe said. I also separated the dough into 8 even pieces instead of 12 and the bagels came out the size you would find at a store. Keep in mind that the bagels are going to pretty much double in size both in height and diameter when put into the simmering water so don't worry if they look a little on the small side after proofing. I just may never buy bagels again! I like to get a nice piece of asiago, shred it, and put it on as a topping, The raw ingredients are so much cheaper then paying for bagels. It just takes a little bit of time, but is a very simple recipe to follow. Having made this recipe at least 10 times now, I must add that you will likely need to add more flour when kneading the dough. I usually knead mine in a Kitchenaide mixer and slowly sprinkle in flour till the dough comes together and is firmer because it will be wet and sticky at first which is not what you want...

Orange Sour Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Great muffins. Soft and moist. I did not have any OJ concentrate so I used about a teaspoon of orange extract, and the flavor was great. I also added a streusel topping which not only tasted good, but added a little crunch and varied texture. also try adding the same amount of baking powder as baking soda. The tops won't come out so flat.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
WOW! This is the best recipe of apple pie I have ever made. I made my own pie crust and used this recipe for the filling/topping. The only small change that I made was that I added cinnamon to the heated brown sugar mixture that you pour on top. I feel that an apple pie needs cinnamon but that is a personal preference. Other than that, it is awesome! I got rave reviews at Thanksgiving.

Bacon Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
Just made these for the first time. Came out great and are awesome when they are still warm out of the oven and the cheese is still gooey when you pull them apart. I did use suggestions and made a couple variations to the recipe. I used an egg as called for but added an extra egg yolk just for moisture. It worked great! I also took someone else's suggestion and used only half the amount of vegetable oil and replaced the other half with bacon grease which I reserved from cooking the bacon. I also used about double the amount of bacon and cheese as all these things enhanced the flavor. I added a little cayenne pepper for flavor and I think that it is somewhat necessary to add some spices as I read that they can have a "floury flavor". I could see how that can happen without extra spices. Finally I reserved some chopped bacon and shredded cheese to put on top of the biscuits before baking them which enhanced visual appeal, added flavor, and also gave a nice contrast of texture as the bacon got extra crispy on top of the biscuit to add some crunch. Hope these variations help!

Seared Ahi Tuna Steaks

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
Nice simple recipe for a good piece of tuna. A few things though, first off I would advise to heat the skillet with oil and butter BEFORE seasoning the fish. If you put the salt on too early it will dry the fish out by drawing out the moisture. Second, I used only a pinch of salt on each side so maybe even a little less than what this calls for but its all about personal taste. Lastly I added a few splashes of white wine when I put the steaks in the pan. It not only adds a nice flavor to the fish but if you then take out the fish and add a little more wine while the pan is really hot it will deglaze your pan and leave you with a really nice white wine and peppercorn reduction (or pan gravy however you wanna call it) for your fish.

Tortilla Espanola

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
Great recipe, my dad used to eat this all the time as a child and raves when I make it for him. I also used to work in a tapas restaurant and the recipe is very similar. I do not personally use parsely but instead add green onions on top before baking it. Also try adding spicy chorizo which totally elevates the dish!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
These are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made! They came out just like the ones you would find at a bakery. What surprised me most is how soft they still were 2-3 days after baking them. All my friends raved about them. Wonderful!!
