Coconut Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
This was great. User 1/2 the amount in crushed red pepper and it had the right amount of heat.. Any more and would have burned our lips off! Served over Jasmine rice. Very very tasty!

Doberge Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
I grew up eating bakery made doberge cakes and never, ever thought to attempt to make one myself, but wanted a chocolate raspberry variation for my daughter's birthday last September, which local bakeries didn't have. I couldn't believe it when I found doberge on allrecipes!! So, made it myself using this recipe, and added a homemade raspberry sauce between the layers with the custard filling. Phenomenal! Well, I plan on making it a third time and remembered to review it and give a warning...don't use this ganache recipe. It did not work for me either time I made it...equal amounts chocolate and cream is way too runny...that's why I only gave it 4 stars. I found a recipe that uses 1 part cream to 2 parts chocolate. Also, give all your attention to the custard when making it...careful not to burn it or you will have to throw it out and start again(been there, done that). All and all well worth all the effort!

This is soooo good! Made Chef John's crème fraiche a couple days before and used it - followed recipe as written and it was wonderful! Will make again and again!

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
Gave it 5 stars even though I made minor changes due to ingredients on hand. Used herbs de provence instead of oregano, thyme and basil. Used polish kielbasa sausage instead of italian and chopped carrots instead of shredding...and more of them. Left out pasta and 2 cups of the water. My hubby said this was the best soup he ever ate in his life! I have to agree! Must try!

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
Yes, this IS the best cake in the world! Amazingly moist, and melt in your mouth delicious. Replaced the the boiling water with freshly brewed hot coffee. Also, used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa in both the cake and frosting. Wished I'd taken a picture...it was very dark and pretty, but it went too fast! This will be my 'go to' chocolate cake from now on!

Baker's Secret Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Today I used the store brand 'ready to unroll and bake' type pie crust and realized I should have taken the time to make this crust again, like I did this past thanksgiving...but I was lazy. What a sad little crust...next time I'll come back to this recipe or just not make a pie at all! Baker's Secret Pie Crust comes out so wonderful and you'll savor every bite and NOT be let down.

Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Used Orange Infused Olive Oil instead of plain olive oil to put it over the top! Also, didn't measure spices, because I was in a hurry, just sprinkled (to lightly cover) with garlic powder, paprika, cinnamon, salt, black pepper, cayenne and at least 3 tablespoons brown sugar. Tossed to be sure evenly coated and baked as directed. Yum, yum, yum!

Simple Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
Cooking the roast in a mix of veggies really makes a difference and adds a sweetness, I think, to pot roast. It was very good, but when I tasted it to check to see if I needed to correct the seasoning, I thought something was missing. So I sprinkled it with about 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce and cooked it for about a half hour more. That did the trick and put the recipe into the 5 star category (with worcerstershire).

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
Loved, loved, loved this flavorful chili. Didn't add chipotle, discarded the jalepeno seeds and used regular chili powder - other than that, made as directed. Only gave 4 stars because too spicy if you don't tone it down.

Orange Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
Great recipe! Soooo delicious! Used green pepper and pineapple chunks instead of bean sprouts...they are listed as optional anyway. If you like bean sprouts, then I'm sure it would still be 5 stars. Also, I used pineapple juice from the can of pineapple instead of orange juice, but I still think it would've been 5 stars with OJ! Did everything else according to the recipe. Think it would be great over rice and garnished with cashews. Oh, I almost forgot...reduced salt content to 1/2 teaspoon. Kept everything the same, even the zest. That's all the changes, I swear! ;-)

Blue Cheese, Spinach Meat Loaf Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
Added some chopped yellow and orange bell pepper, and a litlle more spinach and blue cheese (used gorgonzola) than what the recipe called for; filled 18 regular size muffin tins (1/4 cup each muffin), and for variety - put a typical ketchup glaze topping on 6, Tabasco brand Caribbean style steak sauce on another 6, and left remaining 6 plain. Baked for 20 minutes. WOW! All were delicious! The flavors were perfect together. Husband said this was the best meatloaf he's ever eaten. Don't know how you could go wrong - think if recipe followed to the T it would still be 5 stars.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
This is a wonderful apple crisp. Bought a 4lb bag of Honey Crisp apples at Sam's Club, ate one and didn't like it...more tart than usual. So, I thought, dang, so much for eating healthy...I have to make a crisp now. Peeled, cored and sliced the rest of bag and it measured out 10 cups perfectly. Used a hand held apple slicer and then cut each of those slices in half lengthwise. Followed recipe, except made 1 1/2 times the topping and had plenty for top and bottom. As per other reviews, I cut butter into flour/oat/sugar mixture instead of melting it. Didn't use water, probably wouldn't have hurt it any, though. Baked for 1 hour to compensate for extra topping. Perfectly delicious served hot with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream! Family was all smiles. Will add chopped pecans next time to put it over the top.

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
This smells wonderful and taste just as good. The first time I made it, though, used greek yogurt, cuz that's what I had. BIG MISTAKE...it mutes all the other spices and makes a wonderful dish just ho-hum. Make it as written, maybe add more curry, and use regular plain yogurt, and you've got a winner.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
Made this twice. First with whole wheat pasta and the second time with broccoli slaw instead of pasta (to cut down on the carbs, but ended up adding a pack of ramen noodles for added crunch. :-P) Both versions were yummy, yummy, yummy! Don't leave out the cilantro...it adds great flavor!

Strawberry Lemonade Ice Pops

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
Easy to make...used fresh strawberries since in season. Perfect balance between sweetness of strawberries and tartness of the lemonade. Delicious and refreshing.

Omelet Biscuit Cups

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
My 18yr old loves these. Gave this 5 stars because it's such a great idea and they are delicious. You can customize them to your own liking. Rolled and cut out my own biscuits because I thought the refrigerated type would get tough after freezing and reheating. Used crumbled cooked bacon and shredded cheese, not ham and mushrooms. Freezes great - now my son can grab a couple for breakfast on his way out to work - saving his hard earned money by not stopping for fast food breakfast.
