Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
I was worried with all the adjustments to the recipe posted, but I made it as is. I think it depends on the item you frost. I made strawberry cake mix and a chocolate fudge cake mix; so both were very, very sweet. The slightly tart cheesecake taste really offset the cupcakes and mini-round cakes puuuuurrrfectly. I dyed the frostings various shades of pink, lavender, etc... for V-Day and am delivering the yummy treats to the local police and fire departments as a thank you. Thank you poster, this was an excellent addition to my frosting catalogue!

Chicken Livers with Bacon

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
This was fabulous. I excluded the bacon as I was looking for something more on the healthy side (and didn't think turkey bacon would cut it). Instead, cooked sliced garlic and pearl onions in olive oil until they released the taste and used that to cook the livers. This was another fantastic option for chicken livers. It really, really made a huge difference to use fresh, organic livers instead of frozen. Adding a few to morning eggs can be a luscious option! Thanks for the great recipe.

Savory Chicken Livers with Sweet Peppers and Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I had to switch it up as I was thin on ingredients. I used 1/3 yellow, 1/3 orange and 1/3 red sweet peppers and I didn't have sumac. I used small pearl onions and added a splash more seasoning. This really rocked. All the other recipes include bacon and I was looking for something flavorful, yet less fatty. What a great dish for high protein, low calorie and fantastic taste! I burned the peppers a bit to give them that blackened look & taste. Thank you SO much for posting this!

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
This is my first taste of Quinoa. I was looking for something that could be a side dish as well as a breakfast treat. I used a low fat/low sodium free range chicken broth and minimal herbs and flavors. That way I can add some scrambled egg beaters or honey in the am and bis of veggies for a side. Rockin!

Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
Gosh these were just fabulous. Like other reviewers said, they are a firmer cookie than I normally like. But everyone I gifted them to as a holiday thanks were enamored! I used 1/2 Andes Mint Chips and 1/2 Giardelli bittersweet cooking chips. These chips are huge and flat and easily melt into little pools of yumminess. Thanks so much for the recipe, it made my Thanksgiving.

Self-Filled Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
I sit here savoring these little pieces of heaven. I went with the Dark Chocolate Cake mix and Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chips. I highly recommend the Ghirardelli, they are very superior to regular Tollhouse. The muffins puffed up a lot, so I'll use the tip another offered and fill a bit less. I would also increase the filling a bit. They blended nicely, a bit of the filling leached through the top. The cake mix was wonderful, very sharp and very light. I made some in those fancy upside down cake tins (bigger than a muffin, like 6 on a tray). Then filled the crater with frosting and a cherry.

Chesscakes

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
Absolutely sinfully delish! I had some trouble with the crust, but I've never rocked the pie thing. Agree with another post to keep the dough not too thin. I made it with Lemon Cake and canned Raspberries....great combo of snarky flavor! The best ones were the mini-muffins, bite sized for easy handling.

Salmon with Pecan Honey Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
Eating for 1 is a challenge, some recipes just don't lend themselves to decreasing or even freezing. I bought the most wonderful Salmon from Omaha Steaks and their steak seasoning that has citrus in it. I used that instead of salt/pepper and I excluded the nuts (not a nut person). This was wonderful and the first time I have had Salmon since I was tiny. It was always too fishy or rich, this was a great sweet tooth satisfier! Thanks to the recipe submitter, you made my night. It is so much easier to eat healthy when you have this site as a resource - who knew fish could be fun?

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
No 6 stars? MMMMMM. Followed the 1/2 cup oil and 1/3 cup milk substituted for the 1 cup oil. The mixture looked thin, but worked great. I had to underfill the cupcake tins to keep the top reasonable enough to smear a glob of lovely frosting on top. Dropped strawberries and raspberries and M&M, you name it. Made 2 dozen cupcakes and 2 dozen mini-muffins.

Polvorones de Canele (Cinnamon Cookies)

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
Awesome cookies, a little less sweet and a nice cinnamon tang. They didn't even make it out of the tupperware and onto the plate. I was not able to get them to stop flattening out, but I hope to remedy that next time. The quantity of cookies was a nice excuse for me to buy some new cookie sheets, WOWZA can you get differences between types.

Mexican Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
Holy Cinnamon Batman! These were a huge hit, I must have given a dozen people the website and link. It took a bit of experimentation for my oven, but as soon as I saw any browning on the edges, I removed. These also didn't taste great right after baking, they were kinda crumbly and flour tasting. But the next day they ROCKED.

Quick Cherry Turnovers

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
Continuing my baking frenzy, I found myself flush with bits of chocolate and other chips. I subbed the cherry filling with Dark Chocolate, drizzled with the same, then Milk Chocolate, drizzled with same, Cinnamon (chips) drizzled with same and the knock out fave, Andes Mint Chips drizzled with dark chocolate. My coworkers are currently in a comma, but at least I don't have all those remaining bits of chips! Going to try the cherry tonight.

Mexican Cookie Rings

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
These were a huge hit at the office. I have taken up baking as a hobby and to decrease my risk of sugar comas, I take these to the office. I didn't even have time to put a card with the description and ingredients and they were GONE! I really enjoy the Mexican cookies with less sugar. I added "Red Hot" sprinkles to some and they were really spicey!
