Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
Amazing Cake!! Very easy to make! I reduced the oil to 2/3 C.. It was amazing!!! I've made it about 6x now & I decorate it with the "Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Icing"! Yummy!!! **It does get crispy if you cook it at 350 the whole time though...maybe try baking it at 350 for 20 min & then reduce it to 325**

Mission Mexican Pizza

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
Here's how to turn this 4 star recipe into a 5 star: 1) Don't cook the tortillas for 8 minutes-probably just 4 or 5. You just want them a little crispy-not burnt. 2) Add 1 pkg of taco seasoning mix to the ground beef, once its cooked. 3) Top with Tex Mex Cheese, chopped tomatoes, green onions, (black olives, if you wish), and a dollop of sour cream. 4) Voila!! You've automatically added an extra star! Enjoy! I made these for "Cinco De Mayo". They were a big hit: Even with my picky 4 year old niece!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
Soooo good!!! I used 1C Minute Rice (Cooked in 1C boiling water) & 1/3C + 1 Tbsp Sugar. I also used the full 2C milk, as directed. This was very tasty!! After the pudding was cooked, I put it into 4 sundae cups, sprinkled with some cinnamon sugar. They were awesome!! (For extra cinnamon/sweetness, fill each cup 1/2 way with pudding, sprinkle some cinnamon sugar, then fill the other 1/2 with pudding, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar). My entire family loved it!!! Thanks for a great recipe!!

Strawberry Trifle

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I wanted to use fresh strawberries, but they had none at the grocery store-so I had to use frozen. I thawed them out & strained any leftover juices from them. I used 2 bananas on the bottom layer & 3 on top. When making it, I didn't think taht 1 pkg of pudding would be enough (I screwed up & only used 2 cups of milk, instead of the recommended 3), but when I tasted it, it was delicious!!! Very easy to prepare (Eventhough Mom didn't have a trifle dish, like I was sure that she did LOL). I just used a large glass mixing bowl & it was fine. To garnish, I used a slice of banana in the centre & 5 halves of strawberries to make petals, to make it look like a flower. Very simple, but effective. Thanks for a lovely recipe!

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I made these for 10 servings, using the Allrecipes Calculator. They turned out perfectly!! The only thing is that when I changed the servings, it said to use 1 & 1/4 tsp salt...when I tried the sauce before I poured it on top, it was salty. However, when the potatoes were done, they were perfect!! (I just didn't put any salt & pepper on top on my own plate). Very good recipe!!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Awesome Soup!! I boiled the potatoes, instead of baking them (I used a bag of baby russet potatoes), half of the basil, salt & pepper, and kept everything the same. (Except, I made BLTs to go with it, didn't have enough bacon for the soup, so I used the bacon drippings still & topped it with real bacon bits). It was SOOOOOOOOOOOO good!!! Will definitely make again!!

This salad is amazing!! I prefer it made with strawberries, but it's been made with raspberries, as well as mixed raspberries, and is always a success!

Pistachio Mallow Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
I have been making this for many years...I use 1 container of Whipped Cream (Not sure of the size), 1 Pkg of Pistachio Pudding, 1 Pkg Coloured Marshmallows, and 1 Can of Pineapple Tidbits (Drained, but not all the way). It's a great salad. I've never added food colouring or nuts...but as a twist, you can add: Chopped maraschino Cherries, Coconut, Mandarin Oranges, or even fruit cocktail! Just make sure you drain any of the add-ons completely, or your "salad" will be too juicy!

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
Was okay....I can't seem to find a good bread recipe for my breadmaker. It always comes out raw. This one was less raw, but still was boring. I didn't mind it, but my boyfriend hated it.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
One Word: Amazing!!! Both my boyfriend & I LOVED these...everything was PERFECT!! The only change I made was: I used 3 1/2 C. Bread Flour, 1 C. All-Purpose Flour...and that was only because I only had 3 & 1/2 C Bread Flour. Also, it didn't specify, but I used Golden Brown Sugar. These taste just like Cinnabon's Cinnamon Rolls. Thank You for the Dead-On Recipe!!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
Excellent brownies!!! I had just under the suggested amount of cocoa powder (1 C), but it didn't make a difference...they were really good. Also, I used 1 C Milk Chocolate Chips, instead of semisweet, because of what I had on hand. I used a 9x13 pan, and they were a good height. I also drizzled them with caramel cake filling, and they were amazing!! This was my first time making brownies from scratch. 3RD Time Making Them: Used 2 C. Sugar, 1 C. Golden Brown Sugar...did not make any other substitutions. As always, delicious!!!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2010
In order to be able to spread the icing on a cake without it leaking everywhere, I had to use 6 C. Icing Sugar & 1 Tbsp. Flour, instead of the 2 C. recommended. Lovely taste...but there's a big difference between 2 C. & 6 C. of Icing Sugar...so I only gave it 3 stars. It's a 5 star with the changes-and refrigerate before using.

Fluffy White Filling

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
I used icing sugar, as the other reviewers said it was grainy with white sugar. Took a while to get fluffy, but once it did, it was good. (It WILL look gross for a while, during mixing). Not a strong flavour-will maybe try more vanilla, or try almond extract next time. Overall, a good filling...as long as you don't use white sugar. Next time I will add cocoa powder, to try it as chocolate filling. UPDATE: I tried to make chocolate filling, following the instructions, but adding 1/4 C. Cocoa Powder (Along with the Icing Sugar), and substituting Chocolate Milk for the Evaporated Milk....and what a waste of ingredients!!!! It would only separate...it wouldn't come together at all!!! It slid right off the beaters. Disgusting!! Will never make again!!!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
Doubled the recipe, but only used enough lemon juice for a single batch (Only had 2 lemons, and it wasn't enough, apparently). Overall, it was very good! UPDATE: I made it exactly as written, using a large pack of stewing beef that I softened with my meat tenderizer. I poured the marinade over it & let it sit for about 30 min. Then I made Shish-Kebabs with it. I ised 1 large pack of stewing beef, 1 red pepper, 1 green pepper, and 1 red onion. It made 22 delicious shish-kebabs!!
