Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
i looked for the side dish, to accompany with Mabo-Tofu tonight. I had only broccoli & carrots but it turned out good. I didn't add the ginger at the last step, though. And i probably won't add oil to stir fry the marinated vegis cuz the dish turned out to be a bit oily. The marinade sauce already has oil in it, i think it will be enough oil for me. Overall, it was simple as a side dish, and tasted good.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
ok, i think i would've given 4 stars IF the hand mixer didn't break...yes, when i was mixing it with medium speed, it got so thick & sticky, i could smell the burning from inside of handmixer!i'm bummed right now. I have to go to buy a new one asap, esp. cuz it's the season for baking! Did anybody have this experience?? I did finish mixing before it burst into fire (thank god!), i had to throw the handmixer away...:-( I was afraid what kind of cookies i was making, but it turned out fine. But since i don't want to spend more $ for new hand mixer everytime i bake this cookies, i'll probably not bake this again... Different kind of regular cookies.

Sweet Potato Potato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
me & my bf didn't like it at all...this was my first SWEET potato salad i wanted to make. Usually i have my recipes for regular potato salads (a couple of them). I even REREAD to make sure i put right amounts for the right ingredients, etc, etc...i didn't make any mistakes but it turned out bad...we DID eat some for the dinner...i still can't believe how it turned out...i always choose the recipes which has 4 to 5 rating, and also the recipes with the familiar ingredients..i don't get it...

Delicious Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
this is sooo good. I just baked it, in one 9x5x3, using 1/2 of the whole ingredients. i TOTALLY forgot to put the walnuts, and i really regret it. I'm sure it would be even BETTER if i put the walnuts in this bread...Maybe it was too much batter, and i had to bake about 1hr 20mins, til the toothpick became clean when i inserted in the middle of the bread, and the both edges got hardened, so probably it would be better to use the whole amount of ingredients & the pans she calls for. But Still, the taste is amazing!!! now, i'm typing this, eating the piece of the bread, still can see the STEAM coming out of it, and i put the whipped cream on the top! YUMMYYYY!!

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
the taste was good but it didn't look good, and because of it, i only used for my GHOST halloween sugar cookies, cuz somehow i managed to spred the frosting, using spatula. yea, the frosting was too thick, and couldn't use the brush. But from this picture, the dove's frosting looked like my ghosts, so maybe it should look like this. I was expecting the smooth icing, which was easy to work on & decorate nice. BUT i brought those frosted & non frosted halloween sugar cookies, and those ghosts with this frost got compliments, and i'm relieved. The taste was good.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
The taste was good, and i think i'll use this recipe again, BUT i had hard time rolling the dough out after keeping it in fridge over night...I asked bf to roll it out! While i was cutting, the dough started to soften a bit, and it baked well. It is Very Sweet though...i wonder i can cut the sugar by some...although I know that I'm making Sugar Cookies...lol

Apple Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
It was tasty! Since i knew i would sprinkle the sweet crumbles which the recipe says, i used 3/4 sugar of which is required in the recipe, to make muffins. Everytime when i bake something with apples, i always wonder what kind of apples people use...i used Gala cuz it was on sale ;-) If i didn't sprinkle the crumbles, i would've followed the recipe. I'm sure i'll make this muffins again!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
well, it didnt turn out as i expected...the texture & taste wasn't just right. I didn't omit anything from the recipe and i dont' know what happened...I will finish eating it cuz i love cranberries, oranges & walnuts (very healthy!), but i don't think i'll make it again. My bf definitely didn't like it...

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
i made 2 batches; 1 as it's been written - cream chheese mixture on top of the batter, and sprinkle the streusel topping. 2 as somebody commented - batter, cream cheese mixture, BATTER again before the streusel topping, and me & my bf definitely loved the latter. I didn't put the cream cheese in the middle but tried to cover it up with maybe 1 tbs batter. I also think, this muffins would be good without the cream cheese mixture. It just gives the variety from others who's been eating pumpkin streusel muffins, alwlays. I liked the fact this recipe called for olive oil. This was my first time to bake muffins with olive oil and i think it came out LIGHTER (not dense) i like!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
To our opinion, it was Very good, and 3 tbs of OJ made it more fruity. Next time, i'll reduce to 2tbs, although my bf liked it as the recipe calls for. I brought it to thanksgiving gathering. It was a hit, not a big hit though. i had 1/3 of the big casserole dish left over, but me & bf enjoyed the left overs next two day! LOL

Cinnamon Bread Delight

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
it was yummy! My bf likes it who doesn't like cinnamon much. I baked 1 loaf, so i put half of all the ingredients in the recipe, except using brown sugar for half instead of all white sugar, as somebody suggested.

Lemon Poppy Seed Shortbread

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
it was ok. It didn't have much taste, though. My bf wasn't so happy about it, but we will finish them all. Maybe i need to add more sugar & lemon zest instead of juice...

Irish Tea Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
this was ok. It turned out to be fairly dry & dense, similar to pound cake but more dry. My bf only ate 1/4, i finished it 1/2, and the rest went to the trash ...i may bake it again, if i feel like it, and maybe next time, it will turn out to be moist...like some reviews said...

Foolproof Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
this was goooood! Cuz of SEMI-sweet chocolate chips? it wasn't too sweet like other fudges you can buy them from the store. I used parchment paper in the pan & left it in fridge for over night. No problem of taking fudge out from the pan. It got very hard, though, to cut, and i had to leave the fudge outside (50F room temp.) for a couple of hours before being able to cut them nice. I wonder, though, IF i cut them after 2 hrs, and then, refrigerate in a air tight container, it might be easier to cut them nice...i just didn't want to make cracks but rather having perfect squares. i'll try that next time, and with miniture marshmallows. I made with walnuts for my bf's father's 60th birthday party and everybody loved it cuz it wasn't TOO Sweet, but just right :-) I'll make these again, for gift giving in holidays :-)

Chocolate Pudding Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
I'd never liked chocolate pudding, needless to say, chocolate pudding PIE, but my bf LUUUVS it, so i reluctantly made it. I don't know why but it turned out that pudding had never got hardened enough to keep the shape. We thought we should wait more time, but a couple of days later in the fridge, it was still the same. The taste was good though. My bf even said the taste is the same as he used to eat when he was growing up but not this much WATERY (too soft) texture... i don't know why... i followed the direction on the box, to make the pudding itself...

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
oh boy, this is soooo gooood! Much better than i thought!! After making a batter, i wasn't sure how it would turn out cuz the batter looked hard, a bit like cookie dough BUT it turned out to be soft & moist inside, a bit hard outside with 18 mins., and it just PERRRRFECT!! Me & my bf agreed this is even better than banana/blueberry bread we both fell in love with, and we will be making this MORE OFTEN than that bread, for sure. And this is easy to make!! I didn't change a thing in the recipe!! thanks for this GREAT recipe!! :-)
