Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
They weren't all that great. Good, but not that flavorful.

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
Wonderful cake! Everyone loved it. I made two cakes, a cake using regular AP flour and another using gluten-free flour. With a few additions to the GF one (extra cocoa and milk) it was also very delicious. Both were awesome cakes. I frosted them with cream cheese frosting II from this site and also pressed pecans around it. Yum

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
Very good. Put this on top of a chocolate cake and everyone loved it. Had to add extra sugar because it wouldn't stay on the cake otherwise. Added even more extra powdered sugar to thicken it up a bit in hopes of decorating with it...it needed a lot of it. Good tasting frosting but not for decorating purposes.

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
Pretty good. I usually buy my hummus, but this was super quick to make. Doesnt taste like the one with tahini, but it's still good.

Chococonut Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
They were okay. I can't really taste the coconut; the chocolate definitely covers that up. Mine didn't really flatten like other reviews, but I didn't mind. I pressed down on the balls of dough for the second batch and that fixed the problem.

Famous Chicken Adobo

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
I don't get it...I followed the recipe exactly, but mine didn't come out "saucy" at all. Also, there was WAY too much pepper in this. I'm going to keep looking for a good adobo recipe.

Pennsylvania Coal Region Barbecue

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
It was pretty good. I lowered the sugar since I'm not a big fan of sweet meat.

Crispy Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
Whoa this is spicy, but I like it. I oven fried my chicken instead of using oil. I also decreased the cornstarch to 1/2 tblsp since 1 tblsp seemed like too much. I think what I used was STILL too much so I will decrease next time. Yes, there will be a next time, but with some changes; decrease the cornstarch even more and maybe decrease the red pepper flakes (I like the original amount but not everyone likes stuff that spicy like me).

Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
Definitely more biscuit-like than dinner rolls, but I liked them. Reminded me of the KFC biscuits. Will make again but maybe play around with the recipe and add different spices.

Eggnog Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
I was so disappointed with this recipe. Followed the recipe to a T. The cake was just ok. Tasted like regular boxed mix to me. The filling was not spreadable at all and the icing was beyond sweet. Add super sweet icing on top of a bland cake with thick looking filling and you get something that just isn't eatable. Maybe a kid with a sweet tooth will like this, but it won't be on my table again. Sorry.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
I made this using gluten free grahamn crackers and Bob's Red Mill Gluten free flour (1/8 cup instead of 1/4 because GF flour tends to be a bit heavy). I then baked it in a 325 degree oven for one hour, switched off the oven and left it in there for about 4 hours to cool. It cracked, but I think that was my fault because I couldn't help peeking AND I forgot to run a knife around the edges before cooling. Instead of sticking it in the fridge, I used the freezer since I needed it sooner. Everyone loved it and there wasn't a crumb left! I thought is was just "okay", but I'm told I'm my worst critic.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
Pretty good. I was kinda if-y about ketchup and brown sugar. All I could smell was ketchup, but after simmering I have to say the taste was good. Next time I think I will omit the sugar since it was too sweet for me.

Sunny's Creamy Chicken Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
This was just ok. Made it as per the recipe but when I tried the sauce, it was just to bland and runny. Put it back onto the stove, added spices and cooked a bit more. I did use chicken and it left the breast very tender and moist, so that's a plus. Since the sauce was to thin for me, I mixed it into brown rice. It was good this way. Adding some hot sauce made it better. Thanks. Will use the recipe again, but with some changes.

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
This is pretty good for a cake made of beans. I made this into a dozen cupcakes and baked for about 22 minutes. It's super sweet though, hence the four stars. I didn't get the crumbly texture some got. They were moist. Next time I think I'll add more chocolate and decrease the sugar.

Okra Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
Pretty good. I took some liberties with this recipe. Since I didn't have enough okra, I added some chopped spinach. I also used egg substitute for the egg and added some cayenne and red pepper flakes for an extra kick. I also didn't use the veg oil and instead used non-stick cooking spray. Came out really well. Sadly I will never make okra again...I had no idea it was SLIMY! Ewww. Will eat it again, if I can talk someone else into making it for me. Thanks for the recipe.

Enchilada Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
I cooked up some onions and garlic with the ground turkey. Have tried the refried beans but this time used black beans in place of those (I really liked both variations), I used a hot enchilada sauce, mixed in some with the mixture per the recipe and poured some of the dish to avoid dry pasta. Came out well. This dish is different. Will definitely make the filling mixture again, but I think I'll stick to using tortillas instead of pasta. Thanks for the recipe. UPDATE: Used the filling recipe in enchiladas today...the tortillas were off this site too. YUM. Delicious.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
Not bad, but was expecting more chocolate flavor. You can definitely see and taste the zucchini, but I was fine with it. Omitted the nuts; my preference. I was if-y about the recipe since my batter was thick...I had to press it into the pan since it didn't spread. More cakey than a fudgy brownie (a chocolate zucchini cake), but I liked that too. I also tried subbing in applesauce for the oil and I think I like the oil better (even though it isn't that healthy). Spread a no-dairy chocolate frosting on top. Good. Would probably make again with applesauce for a LESS-guilt chocolate fix.
