Richer Than Rich German Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
This frozen custard turned out great with a very smooth and creamy texture. I only had 2 ounces of german chocolate, so I added some dark cocoa powder to the mixture. I used my Kitchen Aid Ice Cream Attachment and for your information this recipe will fill the canister to full capacity. I had a little bit of ice cream coming out of the top as it was churning. I will absolutely be making this recipe again!

Caramel Macchiato Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
This is a great recipe and it turned out great! I had to make some small changes based on what I had. My graham crackers were stale, so I used Trader Joes Ginger Cat Cookies for the crust. The recipe calls for too much butter in the crust. It is too much regardless of the crumbs you decide to use and you may find butter dripping from the bottom of your springform and causing smoke in your oven. You can cut the butter in half easily. I used Godiva Pumpkin Spice coffee and made it strong for the coffee portion of the recipe. I opted to make some homemade caramel sauce for the top instead of store bought. Just minor changes, but this is a fantastic, moist, cheesecake everyone will rave about!

Pico De Gallo

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
This was my first time making Pico de Gallo myself, it is very simple and I was very pleased with this recipe and plan on making more again this week. The only change I made was I opted to use fresh garlic in place of garlic powder.

Perfect Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Turned out perfectly! I like that this recipe uses whole eggs instead of yolk so it is less messy to make. I use liquid eggs, so it makes it even easier.

Chai Latte Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Packed with chai spices, this makes a great treat. Don't forget the homemade whipped cream and add an extra sprinkle of nutmeg and cinnamon on top. Over the extra sprinkles of spice, drizzle some caramel on too! Store covered in the refrigerator.

I enjoyed this recipe and I plan on using it again, however, you need to add additional spice. I added 1 teasoon of nutmeg and 1/2 teapsoon of cinnamon to the batter.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
It is overall of good concept, however, the cookie brownie portion is a little on the dry side. I doubled checked to make sure I followed all ingredients and steps. The cream cheese portion really makes up for the dryness. I was able to take mine out of at oven much earlier than the recommended baking time.

Mud Pie II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
I wanted to make this recipe for a few reasons. First, I loved that it was labor intensive and completely from scratch. Second, the last review is a few years old and there is no photo of this recipe yet. I pretty much followed the recipe as written. For the chocolate cookies, I used Oreos, which I chopped finely in my blender. The caramel sauce turned out nice and creamy. For the fudge I realized I was out of Karo syrup as I was making it so I made a homemade verision. The espresso fudge is amazing, don't substitute or leave out the espresso! For the vanilla ice cream, I made homemade vanilla ice cream using a David Lebovitz recipe. On top of the last fugde layer on top of the ice cream I added Godiva 85% chocolate shavings then I piped on homemade whipped cream and added cherries. Turned out fantastic!

California Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
I have been craving some nutrious fruit and this recipe caught my eye while searching. I used a thick thick and creamy organic Stoneyfield yogurt and I sed my juicer to juice a fresh orange for the orange juice portion. I also used fresh strawberries too. I think making this with all fresh ingredients will yield the best results. This made a perfectly balanced fruit smoothie, the texture was perfect as was the taste. I will be making this one often, thank you!

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
This is an excellent, simple, yet flavorful recipe. We often make fresh mushrooms a side for dinner and these were great.

Reese's Haystacks

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
I recommend breaking apart the Reese's Cups because it will help as they melt and when you begin to mix. You can temper your chocolate if you prefer or refrigerate until set....just depends on your own preferences. I used a tablespoon size cookie scoop to measure each haystack and dropped onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet. This is a simple twist on an old favorite!

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
Great recipe, but I have to admit I was hesitant at first when I added the chocolate chips into the water/butter/sugar mixture. I was worried my chocolate would seize and when it was looking too pasty I transferred the chocolate mixture to my Kitchen-Aid bowl and began blending it together really well which helped as I added the vanilla and eggs. I baked this in my springform pan for 22 minutes. Makes a great cakey brownie!

Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
These turned out great! I was looking for make something easy and sweet. I made half of the cookie dough into balls which I dipped into tempered milk chocolate and the other half I rolled into extra small balls so I could add them as a mix-in for ice cream. They tasted better the following day after making them. The evening I made them they tasted very brown sugary which I didn't like at all, but after a day the flavor and texture melded together and they were great!

Peanut Butter Balls VII

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
These are a good little snack. I like that they are fairly healthy. I used a natural peanut butter but added a few milk chocolate chips to help bind the mixture together as well as add a little flavor. These make a great base if you wanted to add another type of chip or nut to the recipe. Make sure to refrigerate these to set as they can be a little soft.

No Roll Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
I loved this recipe. It is somewhat similar to the Betty Crocker No Roll Sugar Cookies, yet it is still different....maybe a bit like lighter and fluffy. I know I will be using this recipe a lot from now one. I split the dough and I added Valentine M&M's to half and pressed additional M&M's into the top just before baking. The other half I added rainbow colored sprinkles and I roll the tops into white sugar just before baking. I baked mine at 350 for 15 minutes. I usually don't bake any cookie over 350 otherwise they may brown too much or too fast on the bottoms.

Tomato Basil Penne Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
I loved the ingredients when I saw this recipe, but I didn't end up loving the recipe itself so much. Melting the cheese as directed makes the cheese clumpy when trying to mix the penne in. I had to break up chunks of cheese that melted to try to distribute it throughout the dish. Next time, I would advise to put the cheese into the hot penne instead of putting the penne into a pan of melted cheese. After tasting, it was lacking some flavor, so we decided to add some homemade pesto to the recipe.

Orange Chocolate Chip Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I typically follow the recipe and directions for the most part, but I will admit I changed a couple of things because I really wanted to make this and had it adapt to what I had on hand. First, I just used 1 cup of orange juice in place of the orange and boiling water because I didn't have oranges. I wanted to make sure the orange flavor came through really well, so I added a few drops of LorAnn Orange Oil to that batter to enhance the flavor. I used milk chocolate chips and baked for 35 minutes and my bread was done at that point. Although I did enhance the flavor, this is a great recipe. I am loving the chocolate and orange combination. As someone else mentioned, the bread is a tad on the crumbly side, you will notice when you begin to slice it.

Spinach Basil Pesto

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
This is the real deal, truly amazing flavor. I followed the recipe exactly and since I do not have a food processor, I made this in my Kitchen Aid blender. I had to add all of the oil before turning it on with this method. I was pleased it worked just great. I used pine nuts and had no trouble finding them, I didn't think they were terribly expensive as some others have mentioned. Thanks Dianne for yet another wonderful recipe.

Frozen Chocolate Mousse Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
These were very tasty. I was unsure at first because I didn't love the batter, but they taste great once they are frozen and very cold. I used homemade whipped cream in place of cool whip because I didn't have any. Overall they were pretty good, but they retain a bit of the sweet condensed milk taste, I can pick that ingredient out when I bite into these. My family who loves sweets just picked at this and I ended up tossing half of it away. The picture makes it looks delicious.
