Brazilian Passion Fruit Mousse (Maracuja)

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2013
This is a great recipe, I have made it twice so far and it turned out great every time. Since passion fruits vary greatly in size, the asked-for amount of 8 passion fruits is very non-specific. After reading through the comments, I altered the recipe slightly. I used a little over 1 cup of passion fruit pulp (no seeds), added one can of condensed sweetened milk and and about 1 1/2 cups of whipping cream. I dissolved 1 pack of gelatin in part of the juice before I added it to the cream mixture. I also omitted the sugar, the condensed milk added enough sweetness and I think the tartness is what gives passionfruit its zing, so I didn't want to tone that down too much. I mixed it all up, put it all in my Kitchenaid with the whisk attachment, and beat it for a good 3 minutes until it was foamy. Then I chilled it overnight. The result was a light, sweet and tart heavenly mousse. This has become my favorite passion fruit recipe, and both times I made it, it was gone within a day - even my picky son eats it. Next time, I may serve it with a fresh raspberry sauce or as a cake.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2013
This is a great recipe, with a few tweaks though. For one, the amount of sugar it is calling for is WAY too much for my taste, so I reduced it to 2/3 cups brown sugar - next time, I may even go down to only 1/2 cup. I also used 2 teaspoons of vanilla, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and added 1/4 teaspoon ginger to it. I had two bags of fingerling sweet potatoes from my CSA, so I think I may have used more potatoes than asked for. I baked the potatoes instead of boiling them for better taste, less wateriness and more nutrition. Also used cream instead of milk, and added 1 teaspoon of flour and 1 extra egg yolk to the mix. Even though I'm a huge fan of butter, I will probably cut the amount by 1 to 2 tablespoons next time. But overall a great recipe, I will definitely make this for Thanksgiving.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
This is a great French Toast recipe. I used cinnamon swirl bread, so I left the cinnamon out of the batter. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out great, especially with maple syrup. This will be our new French Toast recipe - next time, I will try it with Challah bread.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
Overall a good recipe. I reduced the sugar to 2 cups, added the zest of two lemons, one lime and one orange, omitted the vanilla, added 2 tablespoons of lemon-lime juice and mixed wild blueberries in with it. It was still a bit on the sweet side, but otherwise, it's a great base recipe with endless possibilities.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Very good, even my very picky son ate it! Made a few changes: Listened to previews reviews and upped the sauce, and also added some broccoli and lime juice. This will definitely go into our bi-weekly rotation.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
This is the perfect basic pancake recipe. I love the idea that you sour your own milk, because most of the time when I decide I want pancakes, I don't have buttermilk at hand. The pancakes baked up beautifully fluffy, and tasted great. I'll have to double the recipe next time because they disappeared within minutes from getting off the stove!

Bread Machine Challah I

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
This is the first sweet bread I have made in my bread machine, and it turned out absolutely perfect. I mixed the warm milk and the eggs with the yeast and let it sit for 10 minutes before I added the dry ingredients and the butter. I replaced 1 cup of the flour with ground almonds, and baked the bread on Sweet and Light Crust settings - it turned out perfect! This will be a staple now!

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
I just recently got my bread machine, and have been looking for a good whole wheat bread recipe. I decided to give this one a try because it is one of the few recipes that doesn't include refined flour, and of course because of the good reviews. Of all the breads I tried so far, this was by far the best. I only made two changes. For one, I replaced two tablespoons of the honey with sugar. I mixed the water, yeast and sugar in the machine and let it get bubbly for about 10 minutes before I added the rest of the ingredients - I find that all breads rise better that way. I also used butter instead of shortening to make it healthier and more natural. Then I baked it in the whole wheat setting with light crust. The bread turned out perfect: Crispy perfect crust, incredibly moist inside, very nice texture, and it rose perfectly. Next time, I will try to add some flax seed and sunflower seeds, and I'm probably going to reduce the amount of honey by half, because it ended up being just a tad too sweet for my taste. It is a great recipe for a truly healthy bread as it is, and also a great base recipe to play with and add other healthy ingredients.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
This bread is amazing. I just purchased a bread machine for christmas (West Bend), and the recipes in the booklet that came with it are just so-so. When I read all the reviews, I thought I'd give this a try. The only change I made is that I used butter instead of oil. The crust came out beautifully crispy, the interior was light and fluffy, and a very nice, mild flavor to it. I was really amazed at how much the bread rose - it was bigger and fluffier than all the other breads I made so far, and it used less flour! I guess I found my white bread recipe, now it's on to the next quest: finding the perfect whole wheat bread recipe for my bread machine.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
This is a really great base recipe for banana bread. I made a few alterations, and it was amazing. I upped the flour to 2 cups and used a mixture of 1/3 ground almonds, 1/3 whole wheat flour and 1/3 all purpose flour. I also reduced the sugar to 3/4 cups, half baker's sugar, half brown sugar. I mashed the bananas, but left some chunks, and I omitted the nuts and added dark chocolate chips (that's what I had on hand), and I also added a little over 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger to it. Had to bake it for about 75 minutes, and it turned out great - it was gone in a day!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
This recipe is a great basic Chicken Alfredo recipe. What I liked most about it is that it uses real ingredients, rather than the highly processed foods that seem to appear in many recipes on this site. It was a very quick recipe, and my son and his friends both finished their plates and asked for seconds, even with the mushrooms. I will definitely make this again!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
I was looking for a quick and easy basic chocolate cake recipe, and this one is it. Used half melted butter, half grapeseed oil, and reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup, and added 1 TS of rum, and it turned out perfect: moist and full of flavor. Since I didn't have two cake pans, I baked the whole batter in a 9" spring form and then cut it into two layers. Made a filling of Morello cherries in thickened juice with Kirschwasser for a little kick, and then made a vanilla whipped cream frosting/filling. It's an absolute keeper! And yes, the batter looks very liquid, but bakes up beautifully.
