Glazed Apple Cream Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
Great recipe! Although, second time through I made a few changes to make it a five star. Although the recipe is great all by itself, I enjoy these changes: Up the cinnamon and add more spices to the filling. I replaced all milk with more cream. Add cinnamon to glaze.

Glorious Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
This cake is absolutely breathtaking. Of course, you are going to have lines from where you took it out of the tube pan, but the flavor makes up for it. It is very plain and simple on its own. I tried it with raspberry jam, powdered sugar, vanilla and lemon icing, lemon curd, and other various toppings. It also makes delicious french toast the morning after...trust me!

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
These are delicious! They are a nice basic recipe that can be added onto. I make mine with chicken, extra spices, pinch of sugar and a splash of soy sauce. I also make my own wrappers, which really makes all the difference. For two rolls, I use 1 tsp egg yolk, 1/2 c flour and 1/8 c cold water. For lots, I do 2 yolks, 2 c flour and 1 c cold water. Mix them all, knead for 5 minutes. Let rest for about 15-30 min (I make the filling while the dough rests). Pull off balls about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Roll out on cornstarch in the shape of a square until desired size and thickness (about 7 inches). These are delicious, soft and you can't find them at any restaurant! Well worth the 45 minutes it takes!

French Chocolate Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
I made it just the way it was supposed to be....but it was just weird. I think it was pretty and each part tasted great on its own. Although, I really didn't like the chocolate mixed with the topping. I would prefer this with more of a cinnamon filling, or if I kept the chocolate filling I would leave off the topping and cover it in ganache. Good recipe. Just not my cup of tea.

Chocolate Bliss Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
This pie was really yummy! Everyone loves a good pecan pie, but this one had something special to it. I will give one bit of advice to anyone who hasn't made a pecan pie: Don't add more nuts than it calls for. This wont make it taste better, it will only create some extra nuts that have no space to float to the top.

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
GLUTEN FREE: This pie turned out awesome. I used equal replacement of the flour with Gluten Free Pantry All Purpose Flour and Bob's Red Mill Rolled Oats. While we all loved this pie, I would suggest adding half of the zest to the topping and half to the pie. Or just subbing it for a teaspoon of lemon in the filling. While the lemon did a good job of keeping it from being nasty sweet, we didn't care for the super citrus-y flavor in the crust. But, all in all it was a great pie.

Dee's Dark Chocolate Granola

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
I did this with about 1/3 cup pecans instead of almonds, no craisins, and real butter. Those were the only adjustments I made. This is really good with some milk. We were eating it before it was even cooled! I took mine out after about 10 minutes and stirred it up, this helped mix the chocolate around. I thought this was really good. But for some reason I would have preferred it without chocolate. And I put chocolate on EVERYTHING! Next time I am going to sub raisins for the chocolate chips. I think it will make a nice cinnamon raisin granola. The mild nuttiness from the peanut butter is not too overpowering, so it is versitile.

Claudia's Yummy Frosting for Cakes and Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
This is a great recipe. I actually made two batches. But I had to add 1 1/2-2 cups more confectioner's sugar. This was to stiffen it and to make it more sweet. It was good, but had a mildly weird texture. Nothing CRAZY weird, or even really noticeable. This was a great recipe, its just not the most amazing frosting I have ever had, which would be 5 stars... But overall a hit, and by the way, you are gonna need a lot more than 2 drops of coloring!

White Mountain Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
~HELP FOR THOSE WITHOUT THERM~ OK. This recipe was quite good. The reasons I didn't give it a 5 star was just because it wasn't really what I expected it to be. It was more of a marshmallow. Now, if I had used my brain and thought of the process and thought, yeah that's how you make fluff, then I would have known. Unfortunately I don't always use my brain the way I should when I am freaking out about finding a tasty vanilla frosting since I ran out of powdered sugar. I was a little worried about making the recipe since I had have recently broken my candy thermometer and I haven't replaced it yet. So here is a bit of help for those without a thermometer. It will boil after a few minutes on high. Keep it at a really rolling boil, I like mine a few notches down from the highest heat, just for safety reasons. Its going to boil for a long long time. Then it will look white with bubbles, this does not mean it is done. Just because it is syrupy doesn't mean it is done. Its got to get really nice and thick, and will look a bit yellow. It took me over 15 minutes to get it to this point, but it can take you longer or shorter. Good luck, I hope this helped some people. It is mildly hard to explain, some of it just comes with making this sort of thing a lot.

Cheater Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
If I could, I would give this recipe 4 1/2. I liked the consistency, but would like if it was thicker. The flavor o the base was great, not fake tasting. Also, it has great color. I am not going to grade it based on its flavor seeing as i didnt add the maple. It was great with just more vanilla iin place. One thing I also did was added 1/2-3/4 Teas. of salt to help balance the sweetness. But what counts is that my whole family loved this! And it was super duper easy to make when i ran out of storebought.

Curried Chicken and Brown Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
BLAH! This was not good in anyways whatsoever. I thought it sounded fantastic. Healthy food doesnt have to be nasty food. None of the flavors worked together AT ALL. NO harmony whatsoever. My family wouldnt finish their portions.

Peanut Butter Kisses I

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
These are a greeeeat invention! :0 i love the mild peanut butter flavor. This is a great, cheap cookie. I am a celiac and I can definitely appreciate this. I had 2 left over egg whites, and i had already messed up the kitchen, so i did them by hand. WHAT A WORK OUT! but totally worth it. All the people that had them come out flat. One of a few things happened. 1. You didn't whip egg whites long enough. 2. You added the sugar too quick or 3. You mixed the peanut butter too much. If the peanut butter is only partially mixed in, because then you have meringue with like swirls of peanut butter. Yum Yum. They are even good out right out of the oven! P.S. any recipe that calls for egg whites and cream of tartar and says to whip it into peaks=MERINGUE

Honey-Baked Bananas

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
this is a great recipe. I prefer it without the toppings and it can be easily frozen. this gave me an idea for my vegan banana pudding recipe. I do 2 bananas 1 tsp of agave and 1 tsp of brown sugar, also i cook it about 5 minutes longer. when its done i mash it all up or puree it!

Vegan Bean Taco Filling

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
This was a very tasty alternative to meat filling. Its better than simple beans. Its great also a a side dish or a dip. I did tweak it just a bit to my liking. I added 1 tablespoon cumin, 1/2 tablespoon cayenne and i added more garlic. This came out great. I put my leftovers in the freezer!

Cinnamon Almond Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
This was very very tasty. But i added fineley chopped almonds and honey to it while cooking. I also tried it with coconut milk and i also tried it with long brown rice. It could be a great vegan recipe if you use agave instead of honey! I think I will try that! But i recommend this recipe. Its a great was to have a calcium rich breakfast and also get rid of your left over rice! :)

Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I did not make the sauce for the top so it was vegan. I didnt have fresh cilantro and was excited to try it so i did this. 3/4 cup masked black beans, 1/4 cup chopped onion, 1/2 tbl minced garlic, dash chili pepper, dash cayenne, 1 tsp dried cilantro,and 1/2 tsp cumin. Then i cut prtion in half and made into balls. After that i squished them lightly so it was about 2 inches across and 1 1/2 inches tall. They didnt fall apart this way and they were soooo good! Thank you for this amazing idea. Im going to make them into "meat"balls. Also if you have problems with stickyness its because your beans are too wet. They need to be very drained and dont use canned, those are slimy and gross. Plus its cheaper to do it yourself.

Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free)

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
more of a 3 and 1/2 star. This recipe was....fine. The problem is that they turn out flat and practically clear...and very grainy. I used this recipe quite often, and added 1/2 a cup more baking mix. I tried adding more another time but they became too "floury" and yucky. I would suggest another website for gluten free recipes. I love allrecipes but for gluten free baking they jst dont suffice. Go to websites that are for gluten free recipes. They also tend to be vegan.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
I absolutely LOVED this recipe! it is by far the best peanut butter cookie ive had! and im lucky, becuase i have an allergy to gluten! a few tips: adding a teaspoon or two of vanilla can adden a bit more depth (but not everyone likes vanilla in pb cookies). next, you may need to bake them up to 15 mintues. You know they are done when they very tops and edges look ready or almost as though there is a "skin". then wait AT LEAST 5 minutes, or else they are simpy goo. dont put them back in if they dont seem cooked enough after 10 minutes or so. they harden nicely once they are fully cooled. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS RECIPE!
