Broccoli Beef II

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
I thought this was a really nice recipe, also pretty quick and easy to make. I used whole grain spaghetti instead of linguine and I thought it turned out good. I think it could use a little more sauce, so next time I will try to add more. Also this wasn't the recipe's fault, but the meat I bought was hard, so next time when I make it I will get a softer cut of meat and it will be perfect!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
I just made this cake last week and it was so delicious. Very moist and the icing was awesome. The only thing i did different was i used hazelnuts instead of pecans (personal preference) and i made the cake in a bundt pan. I heating up the icing a little bit in the microwave so i could pour the icing over the cake. very delicious!!!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
I thought this recipe was the best guacamole recipe I ever made. The only change I made was I added a little less salt, just a personal preference.

Chewy Coconut Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
I thought this recipe was great! I only made two modifications: i used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 cups white flour, and i just put coconut flakes, white choclate chips, and a handfull of dark chocolate chips, no nuts. I only changed it for my personal preference, but I'm sure it's just as good exactly as the recipes reads.

Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pao de Queijo)

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
This recipe was great! My husband is Brazilian from Minas Gerais and he thought this was so delicious. Just a couple of modifications: even though we LOVE garlic, it really doesn't need to go in the bread. It would have been better without. Could use a tad bit more salt. Also, a lot of other people said to reduce the oil, so we put 1/3 cup olive oil instead of 1/2 cup. They chewy or "rubbery" texture of them is completely normal and is how they are supposed to be. I may add a little mozzarella cheese or Brazilian cheese next time.

Lemon Lush

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
Very tasty summer dessert. Not sure why my crust didn't turn out very good. I cooked it for 25 minutes and let it cool and it was still really loose, almost like it wasn't cooked enough..... I added lemon juice to the lemon pudding to jazz it up a little bit. I would try using a sugar cookie type crust next time.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2012
I really liked this recipe as a base for making mushroom soup. It's basic, so I feel like it leaves room to experiment, which I did! I made a few modifications: I added more broth, added some of my personal favorite spices, and added some larger chunks of mushrooms. I also cooked the onions in a little bit of pork fat just to add some flavor.Overall this is a very good recipe.

Brazilian-Style Moist Coconut Cake

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
This recipe is pretty good *IF* you make some necessary modifications. I took the advice I saw on a previous review, that said to reduce the flour by half to 1 1/2 cups. 3 cups would be way too much. I also reduced the amount of sugar to 1 1/2 cups and added a tsp of vanilla. When making the milk mixture I followed other reviewers and omitted the regular milk, I only used one 14oz can of coconut milk, and then HALF of the can of sweetened condensed milk, and the cake came out nice and moist, but actually it was still a little too sweet for me. Next time I will put even less sugar. I didn't think the cakes appearance was very attractive with just the milk and coconut sitting on top so I decided to make some homemade whipped cream with heavy cream with no sugar and it helped balance out the sweetness of the cake, while making it look a little prettier.
