Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
I made only half a recipe, which made 20 cupcakes. I used cake flour instead of all-purpose flour, and I baked at 350 degrees. I was looking for a banana cake recipe that's light and has a cake-like texture. (Most recipes I've tried are dense and taste more like banana bread.) This recipe is exactly what I was looking for. Great recipe!

Banana Butterscotch Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
I prepared the batter as directed, but I increased the cinnamon to 1 teaspoon and I made 12 jumbo muffins instead of loaves. I baked them 20 minutes, and they came out great. I love the combination of banana and butterscotch. Excellent recipe!

Cherry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
Excellent recipe! I used light cream cheese, Dannon Light N Fit vanilla yogurt, and cherries that I had in the freezer. (I actually had only about 1-1/2 cup cherries, but it was plenty.) I reduced the sugar to 2/3 cup, and it was sweet enough. I mixed everything, except the cherries, in a blender for about 30 seconds, then I added the partially-thawed cherries and blended for just a few seconds more so that the cherries were slightly chopped. I poured the mixture directly into my ice cream maker without chilling it first, and it was done in 20-25 minutes. My family loved it!

Real Strawberry Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
This frosting has a delicious fresh strawberry taste and a nice firm texture. The only change I made was to add 1/2 teaspoon salt. I was able to generously pipe frosting on 24 cupcakes.

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
These came out GREAT! I used the custom recipe from Bobbi which calls for Pam cooking spray instead of oil. I didn't use parchment paper, just sprayed the plate w/Pam. Depending on how thin the slices were, they took anywhere from 3-1/2 to 8 minutes to cook. I cooked them until they turned brown, and they got very crispy. Thanks for the great recipe, Jessica!

Brandied Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
Nice texture and taste. The pumpkin flavor was very subtle, and I felt it could have used more pumpkin pie spice. The bread is just slightly sweet, and would be perfect to serve with Thanksgiving dinner.

Black Bean, Corn and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
Very quick and easy. I followed the recipe exactly, but I used about 2 cups frozen corn instead of canned. It came out very good. My family liked it. I'm going to double the recipe next time, because it doesn't make a lot, and chili is much better left over.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2012
I added a teaspoon of vanilla and 1/3 cup chopped walnuts to the batter. I also increased the amount of cinnamon in the topping. I made 7 jumbo muffins. They were done in 20 minutes and came out excellent!

Hawaiian Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
I made this for a Hawaiian luau themed party. I boiled the potatoes 30 minutes, and I sprinkled about 1/2 cup of chopped macadamia nuts on top during the last 15 minutes of baking. It came out very good, but I think the bananas overpowered the sweet potatoes a little. If I make this again, I would cut back on the number of bananas. Other than that, it's a very good recipe.

Caramel Frosting IV

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
This frosting came out good but, in my opinion, way too sweet to frost an entire cake with. I used it for just the filling in a dark chocolate layer cake (Black Magic Cake from this site). I sprinkled chopped pecans on the filling, which made it taste like praline filling, and I frosted the cake with French Silk Frosting (also from this site). It tasted like a turtle cake....delicious!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
Very moist testure, and the coffee really brings out the chocolate flavor. I substituted regular milk mixed w/lemon juice for the buttermilk. I scaled the recipe down to 6 servings, because I just wanted to sample it, and I made 22 mini cupcakes. They were perfectly done in 12 minutes. (It's very important not to overbake chocolate or it loses its flavor.) This recipe is a winner!

Raspberry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I doubled the recipe and baked it in a springform pan. I used raspberries from my garden and light sour cream. It came out great. My family loved it.

The Old Boy's Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
I was skeptical of this recipe, especially after I put the topping on, because it looked like way too much, but it baked up beautifully! I used 2 pounds of strawberries, which I cut into hunks. I used only 4 Tbs. butter in the topping, which I cut into the flour/sugar with a pastry blender, and I used the other 2 Tbs. butter to dot on top. Be sure to place a pan underneath the pie pan, because it will definitely spill over. Great recipe!! Even more delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream.

Black Bean, Corn, and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
I made exactly as directed, except I used frozen corn, cherry tomatoes, and I only used about 4 ounces of Feta cheese. It came out very good. It had a nice kick from the jalapeno pepper. I had never used jicama before, and I really liked the taste and texture.

Apricot Danish Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
This recipe is very easy and makes a very nice presentation. The texture is more like cake than danish, but it tasted very good. I couldn't make wells in the batter with a spoon, so I just put dollops of cream cheese on top of the batter and pressed an apricot slice into each, which worked out well. Be sure to count the number of apricot slices in the can before putting on the cream cheese, because several people said they had less than 15 (my can actually had 18, so I made 3 rows of 6). I added a teaspoon of almond extract to the cream cheese. I used light cream cheese and sour cream, and I'm sure no one could tell. My husband and son both immediately went back for seconds.

Fresh Strawberry Sauce

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
I followed the recipe to a "T" and it came out great. It wasn't overly sweet and thickened up nicely. I served it over Italian cheesecake.

Hot Tamale Pie

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
Great recipe. My family really liked it. I used 4 large poblano peppers, which was just under a pound total. I only cooked it 50 minutes, and I could have probably taken it out of the oven after about 40 minutes, because it seemed slightly dry. Other than that, great recipe. Thanks, Chef John...another winner!

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
Very easy and tasted great. I'm glad I read the reviews before making this. Several reviewers said there wasn't enough liquid, so I checked it halfway through cooking, and saw that it definitely needed more liquid. I added another cup of broth, and it came out just right and was perfectly done in 20 minutes.
