Kelsandra's Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
I had high hopes for this recipe but came away disappointed. I coudn't really taste the pumpkin flavour at all, and the nutmeg flavour seemed a bit overpowering to me. The dough was also quite sticky; I probably ended up using 2 extra cups of flour to make the dough workable when all was said and done. I think I'll stick to the regular cinnamon buns from now on. I think this recipe is an interesting idea and could be tweaked to make it better, I'm just not sure what adjustments should be made.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
I would have given this 5 stars but it definitely has a baking soda aftertaste. I made it again without the baking soda and it was fantastic! I also like to use 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white flour, as well as 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar. Fantastic recipe!

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Great recipe!!! I drained the liquid out of the zucchini and salted it first as other reviewers suggested. Also, if your batter is not frying up - if it is a mess resembling scrambled eggs - add more flour. I did and they fried up beautifully! Also added 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, but I think it still taste wonderful without it.

Thai Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Really quite good! Restaurant quality even. I have 2 suggestions: don't add the salt to the dressing, as it is plenty salty already. (And if you taste the dressing before you put it on the salad, don't be scared off by the saltiness of it - once it is on the salad, the veggies soak up the dressing and "cut" the salt taste). Also, if you like ginger, I suggest grating about 1 tbsp. into the dressing, as ginger tends to flavour Asian/fusion recipes well. One last comment: it does take quite a bit of time to chop all the veggies, using a pre-packaged mix as one reviewer suggested is a fantastic idea! A great recipe, thanks for submitting!

Mini Sweet Potato Samosas

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Really quite good! I used a regular potato as I don't like sweet potato. Added salt, pepper, curry to taste. Also fried up onions and garlic in oil and then added it as one reviewer suggested. They crisped up quite nicely and my husband ate almost the whole plate! This one's a keeper, thanks!

Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
this recipe, as written, did not work for me. Way too many apples and the batter was very thick. I had to add a lot of milk so I could mix the batter. The finished product did not taste very good either - the chunks of apples were kind of weird. Still edible, ate it so it wouldn't be wasted - but I won't be making it again.

Ham 'N' Cheese Stromboli

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Great versatile recipe! The possiblities for different doughs (different pizza dough recipes, bread recipes, etc.) as well as fillings are endless. I used ingredients that I had on hand which included sliced ham and mozzarella cheese. For the dough I used Pizza Crust I from the site (with the addition of Italian seasonings to the dough). I brushed the top with an egg wash as somebody suggested (used an egg, beaten, with some milk added) and sprinkled garlic powder and a touch of parmesan cheese on top. I was afraid it wouldn't cook with all the layers as it was rolled up like a jelly roll but it came out pretty well. I'll be making this often - thanks for a great recipe!

Chicken Noodle Salad with Peanut-Ginger Dressing

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I am not sure what I did wrong with this recipe...I followed it to a T and it came out way too salty and completely inedible! I ended up adding about 3/4 cup of water, tripled the peanut butter and added some white vinegar. In the end it was edible - but still way to salty. I used light soy sauce (as opposed to dark) as the light is way less potent. However I still think the culprit may have been the soy sauce. Has anyone else had this problem? If so please let me know.

Chocolate Banana Cream Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
I thought this pie was ok. There was WAY too much coconut and I love coconut! It seemed to take away from the pie. Next time I would definitely make it without the coconut.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
I made this and the taste was pretty good but after they set in the fridge overnight they still weren't "set." When I went to pick them up to eat them the fell apart in my hand. Not sure why they didn't set properly...

Black Forest Chocolate Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
This recipe is out of this world! Don't exclude the almond extract - it's the secret. You can even add a little more for extra flavor. I made this for several parties and potlucks and people who said they didn't like cheesecake were telling me it was amazing!
