Stir-Fried Mushrooms with Baby Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
I liked this recipe, my husband said it was just ok. To be fair, I did have to make a lot of changes: 1. To make the recipe kosher, I omitted both the fish sauce and oyster sauce. I subbed the 2 of them with 1 tablespoon soy sauce. 2. When I went to cut up my mushrooms it turned out they were spoiled, so I had to use canned instead. I also used canned baby corn. 3. I threw in some cubed chicken cutlets to make a full meal. 4. I added some crushed red pepper flakes instead of the red chile pepper. I also left out the cilantro. Overall it was good but not 5 stars. I will try it again using fresh mushrooms. EDIT: Tonight I made it again using fresh mushrooms- made a world of difference. I also used 2 Tb soy sauce and 1 Tb Worcestershire for the fish+oyster+soy sauce, which also made a huge difference. I added 4 chicken cutlets like last time but left the sauce the same and it was still enough. Used dried instead of fresh cilantro. Overall a healthy, filling, and tasty meal!

Crackle Top Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
Make sure the dough is really thick or it will be too sticky to roll - I used about 2 1/4 cups of flour. I also used half brown half white sugar, but next time might use 3/4 if not even all brown (but white for rolling). I baked them 7-8 min, but I also made smaller cookies- the dough balls expand a LOT! About double the amount choc chip cookies expand, so if you want normal size cookies use less than a teaspoon (cutlery-size spoon, not the measurement). The wax paper trick works, thanks for sharing! Cookies are still soft after letting them cool on wax paper instead of cooling racks. Bottom line: definitely a keeper! Edit: a year later, still loving these cookies!

simplylo's Oven-Baked Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
I thought it was very good, 4 stars, but my guests gave this rave reviews so I'll rate it 5. I used white wine instead of sherry (didn't have) and would use low sodium soy sauce next time. Also didn't have wheat germ so used 1.5 cups bread crumbs. I let the chicken marinade overnight before breading and baking. Will definitely make again.

Easy Garlic and Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
Great dinner for 2. I make it on the Foreman, sometimes with fresh garlic and sometimes with garlic powder. So easy and so good!

Chicken and Snow Peas

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
I doubled the sauce ingredients except for the chicken broth. Next time will use low sodium soy sauce, it was a little too salty for us. Also used sesame oil instead of canola, added carrots, and left out sesame seeds. Easy, healthy, delicious recipe!

Mom's Sushi Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2012
Halved the sugar and it was perfect. I added all the ingredients into the pot instead of adding the vinegar dressing at the end, and it was perfect consistency!

Blender Chocolate Mousse II

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
Like others, the mousse never set up. I think the directions may be unclear, because the top layer was mousse-like but the rest was pure liquid. The taste was good though (with half the sugar and just a splash of brandy and vanilla) so I may try again and keep it mixing for much longer, until the consistency looks more foamy and less liquidy.

Chicken and Cashews

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Great recipe but needs fine-tuning. I did 3x the sauce recipe for 4x the chicken, and it was still thin. My biggest complaint is that it was VERY salty- both my husband and I agree, and we both prefer salty foods. Next time I will use unsalted cashews.

No Roll Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
Excellent. So simple and easy, it was exactly what I was looking for. This is my new go-to pie crust recipe. As per others' suggestions, I use the full amount of salt for a savory pie, or 1/4 tsp each of sugar and salt for sweet pies.

Blueberry Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
This is the first recipe on this site I thought deserved 5 stars. I made this for a meal of 20 people this coming weekend, but my husband and I sneaked a taste tonight... and he, who doesn't like dessert, tried to steal my piece! I didn't use all the dough, but I did use the whole can of blueberry filling, and had I used more dough I don't think it would have been blueberry-y enough. I also forgot the nutmeg. Great recipe!!

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
I used about 3/4 cup of lemon juice (the juice of the 3 zested lemons) and strained the curd when it was finished. I think more lemon juice would have made it too tart. Don't use bottled lemon juice, it will be too tart. Easier and faster than stovetop but just as delicious!

Lemon Thyme Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2012
4 stars for taste, 5 stars for ease! I make this all the time with brown rice, and I use canola oil instead of butter for a dairy free recipe.

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2012
5 stars for taste, but only 3 for consistency. I let the cookies sit for 5 min before taking them off the baking sheet, and they barely held together- most broke in half in the transfer from cooling rack to Tupperware. I tried adding 1/4 cup cocoa to half the batch, and the consistency was MUCH better- but too much cocoa flavor and barely any PB. Will try again another time with 1 C PB, 1 C sugar, 1 egg, 1/4 C cocoa/flour, for Four Ingredient chocolate/regular PB cookies

Scottley's Basic Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
Excellent. I made with 1/3 cup oil instead of butter (probably would have been 5 stars with butter), all purpose flour, and soy milk. Light, fluffy, and delicious.

Cranberry Cinnamon Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
To make the cookies lower fat, dairy-free, and soft, I used 2/3 cup margarine and 7 tablespoons applesauce (in place of 1 cup butter). The batter was a little liquidy had a pretty strong apple taste- but these apple cinnamon cranberry cookies were great! To make the log more solid I added flour to the remaining dough, and the apple wasn't noticeable at all. However, the cinnamon was drowned out. So, still good, but next time I will add extra cinnamon, as a previous reviewer suggested. In short, if you like a soft cookie and/or want to cut the fat, try this recipe with 2/3 C butter + 7 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce, 2.25 cups flour, and 1.25-1.5 teaspoons cinnamon.

Quick and Easy Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Decent. I left out the sugar because we don't like sweet sauces. Tasted mostly just like ketchup. Haven't decided if I'll try it again.

Caramel Frosting VI

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
I made this recipe non-dairy using margarine and soy milk. Tastes great! As per other reviews saying it set really quickly I only let it sit for 1-2 min instead of 5 before drizzling it on. It was liquidy but I put it on a Bundt cake so just makes it prettier- I'm not sure how it would work with a flat cake.

Daddy's Fried Corn and Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
so easy and so good! i did make some changes: 1. i doubled the recipe (for a meal for 7 ppl) 2. used regular yellow onions instead of sweet, since that's what i had on hand 3. canned corn instead of fresh- about 5.5 cups for the doubled recipe 4. some olive oil instead of the butter, to make the dish dairy-free the prep time and cook time were both cut in half by using canned corn and oil. the corn tastes so sweet. i can't wait to serve it!

Grilled Fish Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
Very easy prep, just make sure you have as much time as you need for marinating- I made this on the spur of the moment and so we didn't eat dinner til 9pm. I followed the recipe exactly except I used dried parsley instead of fresh and baked the fish (we don't have a grill) as another reviewer did at 450F for 15 min. I often overcook fish but this was the perfect amount of time in my oven. Good flavor, but next time I will add more lemon. Will definitely make again.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
I used 1.5 cups of chicken broth (didn't have beef), 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 2 T soy sauce (as written), a bunch of ginger powder (didn't measure), and lots of garlic powder (didn't measure). After simmering a few minutes, I tasted the sauce and it didn't have quite enough flavor. I added more soy sauce, more ginger, more garlic powder, a little honey, and a tiny bit of red pepper flakes. Turned out great! I think the beef broth would have added a lot more flavor than chicken broth, which is why I gave it 4 stars even with all my additions. Not restaurant quality, but very, very good, and easy. 2 people, no leftovers! My husband was enthusiastic, and he likes his food VERY flavorful :)
