Pumpkin Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
I was surprised by how much I liked this! I made the recipe almost exactly as written, but I made it vegetarian by leaving out the beef and putting 1 cup extra beans in the blender with 1 cup of the tomato juice and then adding it to the chili. This gives it a slightly meaty texture. I think I'll use less tomato next time, though. It's a bit too much with the diced tomatoes AND the juice.

Mini Cheesecakes III

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
So perfect! I did the recipe exactly as written, except I used butter for the crust. The only thing I did differently was to make them TRULY mini, meaning a mere inch in diameter. I baked them in paper liners for 14 minutes and they are the perfect consistency. By the way, I'm not a fan of cheesecake.

Fudgy Brownies I

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
This was my first attempt at baking brownies, though I bake all the time. I followed the recipe exactly, though I accidentally used a little more cocoa powder than stated. These were exactly how I like my brownies. Gooey on the inside, flaky and a little crispy on the outside. I'm very pleased. :)

Tzatziki I

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
Too much garlic in my opinion, but other than that it was very tasty. I used non-fat yogurt which made it a little extra tangy, which I really like. Thanks for the recipe!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
Awesome! Used less onion (cuz too much hurts my tummy), used red bell pepper, used 8 saltine crackers instead of bread crumbs, and made sure to strain the onion/pepper/garlic mixture. Cooked 'em up on the stove and YUM!!

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Pretty good! Made it exactly as written, though next time I think I'll change it up. One cup less veg stock, less onion (personal preference), add celery like others said, but really that's it. I found it very tasty!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
I want to give it 4 1/2 stars since I changed it up. Only used 1 package cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, used 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla and 2 cups of the powdered sugar. It turned out wonderfully.

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
Made the chocolate recipe and got 72 mini cupcakes. Used 1/3 cup instead of 1/4 cup cocoa powder, but I shouldn't have because I also added 1 cup mini chocolate chips and it was a little much. Did as another reviewer said and used oil instead of shortening, but only because I don't like using shortening. Topped it off with a cream cheese frosting and it was perfection!

It's like eating a backwards oreo, with the cream on the outside and the cookie on the inside. This is AMAZING!!!

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
I never give 5 stars. Soooo good! Like others, I added some pumpkin (1/2 cup more) but the rest was exactly the same. I put 2 tsp. black food coloring into the frosting and ended up with 72 perfect Halloween mini muffins.

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Did it all as written, though like another reviewer, when I was mixing it I just dug in with my hands and kneaded it like bread dough. I dipped the tops of the balls into a Halloween sprinkle mix and they turned out kind of cute. Took them to a rehearsal with me and they were highly praised and gone in minutes.

Tomatillo Guacamole

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
Meh. I would actually like to taste the avocado. Maybe one less tomatillo would suit my taste better. I also only used two tomatos, because 3 just seemed too much. Other than that, I liked it with the red pepper flakes.
