D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
Excellent salsa recipe, the green chiles and fresh cilantro really make this recipe. Will make again and again, with maybe more heat next time ;)

Caramel Frosting I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2013
The proportion of powdered sugar is way off. Next time I make this I'll half it and compensate with more of the other ingredients, especially the butter (only 2T? should be at least double!). It is a good starting point for that old fashioned made-by-grandma-style frosting, though. I bet it'd be awesome with some marshmallow creme! It does set up pretty quickly, so make sure your cake is cooled before you start it, because it's pretty quick to make.

Summertime Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2013
A bit strong for a salad. I'd use it more like a condiment for some grilled chicken or something, but alone as a side dish? Would you ever eat pico de gallo as a side dish?

Sunday Morning Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
Not lemony enough for my liking. Sprinkle with lemon juice just before serving, and use all lemon juice instead of vinegar. Next time I'll double up on the poppy seeds. These were a great change from the normal routine. Will make again soon!

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
This was a refreshing change from the tried-and-true sweet potato+curry! I think next time I'll add in some apple juice/cider and another apple and up the heat.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
They're good, but nothing special. The wait+mashing+cleaning probably isn't worth it. The onion should be chopped, not halved. Next time I'll use chicken broth instead of water, and add cilantro & lime juice after I take it off the heat.

Spicy Crispy Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Can't stop making!! Only thing we do differently is omit the sake and sauté in a well-oiled pan... it'd turn out better in a fryer, but unfortunately we don't have one!

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
Cut the bacon by more than half and it still felt like too much (is such a thing even possible?!). I poured out some of the bacon fat but kept enough to sautee the broccoli/onion a bit, since dinner was in 30 minutes and I couldn't wait for the vinegar to do its thing. Was great but next time I'll throw in another head of broccoli to balance out the other ingredients.

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
So yummy! I used Mcintoshes and I cut the sugar in half but it was still a bit sweet for my liking. I'll probably just omit it altogether if I do this with Mcintosh apples again.

Shreddies Ooey Gooey Popcorn Treats

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
I accidentally picked up some plain Shreddies one day (yuck!), so I used the rest of that and made up the remainder with the honey flavored. I halved the recipe and popped 1/4c. popcorn on the stove with 2T oil. Also added cocoa powder and some vanilla. If I make these again I'll add more marshmallows; they didn't seem to stick very well, though they were thoroughly mixed. They were okay, but I think I'll stick to Rice Krispies treats and Special K bars.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
People suggested to double the crumble mixture... are you serious? It was WAY too much! I will half it next time! Also the butter to dry ingredients ratio is off, there should be less flour I think. And the butter should not be melted, as always.

Premium Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
i'll never go back to my old pizza crust. this one had the right texture, was malleable, simple, and tasted GREAT. I did add another 1/2-3/4c. flour, like others, though, and it took a lot longer than 8 minutes to cook.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
I used generic salsa, and added more than was asked (I like stuff extra spicy), and it turned out DELICIOUS.

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
No way is 350 for 20 minutes enough. I had it on 400 for 30 min--without too many toppings, too--and it was still pure dough in the middle. you HAVE to prebake this one!!!!! Very frustrated after losing the entire middle of the pizza!
