Angel Food Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
This recipe was great! I followed the recipe exactly, except I used all-purpose flour. Like other reviewers, I made these into muffins and then made individual strawberry shortcakes. I cut each muffin in half, removing the top, and put a spoonful of homemade whipped topping, a spoonful of cut up fresh strawberries, replaced the top of the muffin, and topped it off with another spoonful of whipped topping. They turned out light, sweet, and easy to handle - and only approx 90 calories each! Bonus! This is a definite keeper!

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
Although the flavor was ok, the bread came out mushy.

Chicken Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
This recipe was ok. It was interesting to try once, but since it only got so-so reviews from my family, I won't be making it again. The biggest drawback? Definitely the time. However, I agree with other reviewers that it was nice to find a recipe that didn't use condensed soup. I admit that I'm having difficulty giving a helpful review because overall it was just ok.

Chocolate Mousse Cake IV

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
I thought this was a really good cake - frosting really, since the cake is just a mix. My husband thought it was very rich, and he was right, so you can't eat too much in one sitting. However, the frosting was very easy to make. I didn't have unsweetened baking squares, so I used baking cocoa instead. The conversion is one 1oz square = 3 Tablespoons of baking cocoa + 1 Tablespoon oil. It turned out really well!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
I really enjoyed this recipe, although my husband did not. I thought it was just as described - healthy and light. My husband didn't think it was substantial enough...he was still hungry after three pieces. But, if you're looking for a light fish recipe, this is a good one!

Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Oh my goodness! These were absolutely the best cookies I have ever tasted! I usually eat 3-4 cookies out of a batch, but I ate 6 out of this one and probably would've eaten more if there had been any left. I followed the recipe EXACTLY and they turned out wonderfully! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
These turned out wonderfully! The only changes I made were the following: 1 tsp vanilla extract (omitted almond extract altogether), 1/2 c. chopped macadamia nuts, 1/2 c. white chocolate chips. There were plenty of both nuts and chocolate in every cookie. This is a very sweet cookie - my daughter said the dough tasted a lot like sugar cookies. I thought they tasted exactly how I expected them too! Thank you!

German Chocolate Cake Frosting II

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
This frosting was surprisingly yummy - even my young daughter liked it! It was easy to make and tasted wonderful! I followed other reviewers' advice and added 1 T. cornstarch to the milk...it thickened up nicely. Also, I added about 1/2 c. more coconut than the recipe called for...personal preference. Very tasty...thanks!

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
These were surprisingly yummy! Both my husband and young daughter liked them. I followed the direction exactly and they turned out perfectly. I dipped the bottom of half the batch in melted chocolate and left the other half plain. Both were excellent. Thanks for sharing!

Almond-Crusted Tilapia

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
I'm on the verge of giving this recipe 5 stars for the simple reason that it got my young daughter to eat fish! She HATES fish and will not eat it. But she ate almost half a fillet and would've eaten more if I had made more! I'm simply amazed! However, my husband didn't like this recipe as much as another tilapia recipe I make, so I have to give it 4 stars. It is an excellent recipe, however, and definitely one to make occasionally when looking for a change from the norm. Thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Macaroon Tunnel Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
While this cake turned out beautifully, it took so long to cook (60 min at 325 degrees) that I was really expecting something spectacular, but was disappointed. The cake was just an average chocolate cake, with some coconut in the middle. I'm sorry...not worth the time and effort.

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe! My husband is not a fan of coffee cakes, but I keep trying anyway and this one was a success! To minimize excess use of ingredients if it wasn't successful, I cut the recipe in half. I used a regular 9" round cake pan to bake it. No problems with that. My cake didn't turn out dense like other reviewers and I think it's because I beat the butter, cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until REALLY light and fluffy. The cake was really light, which was a plus for us. I used this recipe as a dessert and served with homemade whipped topping on the side. So good! Thank you!

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
Not only was this recipe a cinch to make, but the pretzels are so good! I wish I had made more of them. Since this was my first time making pretzels, I cut the recipe in half and only made six. I followed the directions almost exactly, however, I cooked them at 425 degrees and they cooked in about 4-5 minutes. I suggest standing there and watching them until they look brown enough. Anyway, the pretzels were a little large and I could only fit four on a baking sheet. I dipped the remaining two into the water/baking soda mixture and left them on a different baking sheet until the first batch was done. I mention this because I worried that they would be ruined by sitting out after being dipped in water. No need to worry! They turned out great! After they came out of the oven, I brushed them with butter and then sprinkled with regular table salt. Perfect! This is a really good recipe to do with your kids...my young daughter had a blast! Thank you for a great recipe! *UPDATE* I made these for the second time this past weekend and made an interesting discovery. I thought some of my pretzels from my first batch were too crunchy and so this time around I made my dough ropes thicker. The pretzels tasted great, but they were much softer and more like rolls than pretzels. I think the thinner ropes are better because they make a crunchy outside and a chewy inside - just as they should be.

Caramel Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
These turned out great! I made the recipe exactly as is - no changes. They are definitely too soft to cut when warm, so you need to wait until they are cool to make bars. You can eat them warm with a fork, however! :)

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
This is a very good starter recipe. I agree with other reviewers that "as is" the sauce is pretty bland. To counter this I made the following adjustments: I added 2 T. brown sugar to the chicken marinade and then about 1/4 c. soy sauce and an additional sprinkle of both garlic and ginger to the sauce. I ended up having to thicken it with a bit of cornstarch and water, but the end result was really good! My family can be very picky and they really liked this! Thank you for a great recipe!

Sweet and Sour Sauce I

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2005
This recipe is pretty good. I tried it because I didn't have any pineapple juice (which is usually necessary in most sweet-and-sour sauce recipes). It's not bad, but I agree with those who used pineapple juice, it's probably better with it. I will definitely keep this recipe on hand to use again.

Wild Rice And Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2004
A wonderful recipe - even with the changes I made. I made the mistake of making this recipe using a long grain/wild rice mixture. Like another said, it turned out really doughy. So I threw that batch away and made it again using 1 c. of egg noodles. (A bonus of this recipe - it's really quick when you use noodles!) I added carrots and shredded the chicken rather than cubed it. It turned out to be a creamy chicken noodle soup! I didn't have any poultry seasoning on hand so I just used a medley of spices (thyme, basil, rosemary, etc.) It turned out great - even my picky eaters liked it! Next time I'll try the poultry seasoning - I'm sure it will be even better. Also, I ran out of cream after the first doughy batch and so only used milk for the second try. It was still delicious, but I think the cream (even half cream/half milk) will make it even more smooth and creamy. Anyway, thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe!

Becky's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2004
This is probably the best chicken salad I've ever had! I left out the almonds and almost left out the grapes (because I've never liked grapes in chicken salads), but I'm so glad I didn't! I tasted the salad without them and it was bland. The grapes were perfect! The whipped topping added a lightness that is missing with mayo-only salads. I really liked it. Even my husband, who loathes, chicken salad ate a ton! THANK YOU for a definite keeper!

Beef with Green Onion

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2004
A very tasty recipe, but I did make a few changes. I doubled the sauce and added approx 1 T. soy sauce to the sauce (I didn't like the strong "fish" taste). Going on others' suggestions, I added carrots and broccoli. I didn't have any sherry and so I used Beef broth (which I use as a substitute for sherry most of the time). It turned out great! Thanks for sharing!

Easy Eggplant Pita

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2004
Like others before, this was bland. I tried everything other did (seasoning, dressing, more garlic, etc.) but it was still bland once you got it in the pita. Hmm, perhaps it was just the kind of pita a used? I'm not sure....but I don't think I'll make this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe though, it was fun to try it!
