Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
I made this exactly as stated but with only one can of the beans. This was okay, but just very bland. I wanted more flavor. Will keep looking for a tasty quinoa recipe.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
This is so absolutely delicious and decadent. I made the recipe exactly as stated, except I used a 10-inch springform pan wrapped in foil. It tastes so rich. I made sure my butter was at room temperature and I sat my eggs out to get close to room temperature as I made the cake. Really, really worth the price of the ingredients!

Grandmother's Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
This was really yummy! I scaled it down to make just one loaf and it turned out great. The only change I made was to add a pinch of salt (I used unsalted butter) and 1/4 tsp almond extract and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. It turned out really dense and yummy, and the crusty top and sides were my favorite part! Oh, I also subbed almond milk for the regular milk. Will definitely make this again.

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
This was very good. It had a mild taco taste, and the beans and corn tasted great! I used picante instead of salsa, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. May try to make it a little spicier next time, but really it was quite good the way it is!

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
This was excellent cake! I have been searching for a simple homemade white cake that tastes yummy, and this is it. I made the recipe exactly as stated and it came out great! I actually liked it better on the second day, when it seemed to get a little sturdier. The flavor is very simple and clean, perfect for a flavored frosting to shine. I can see myself substituting lemon extract or almond extract for the vanilla or in addition to the vanilla. I think this will be a very versatile cake that I will make often!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
This was fantastic! I omitted the sesame seeds and cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup, but left all the other ingredients the same. Absolutely delcious and a big hit at the lunch where I served it.

Chocolate Pretzel Rings

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Easy, yummy, and fun! I made mine with the waffle square shaped pretzels, rolo candies, and an m&m on top. Everyone loved them, from the grandparents down to the kids at my daughter's first communion party. Definitely will make again!

Peanut Butter and Cream Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Wow! Delicious and rich! I made this to take to a neighbor for dessert and it was well received by all the adults there! Rich, fudgy, peanut buttery! I was worried at first that the topping would be overpowering, because there is so much, but it was perfect. It seemed like a creamy peanut butter pie with a brownie crust (though thicker than a crust!) If you are a peanut butter and chocolte lover, this recipe is for you!

Poke Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
This was just okay. Not great, not bad. I used watermelon jello, and maybe that was the problem. The kids I served this to liked it a lot, but it was too wet and too sweet for my tastes (and I like sweet things!). I will not be making this again.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Not only does this icing look fantastic, but it is super easy to work with and tastes great! I will definitely use it from now on for cookies that look and taste great! I needed and extra teaspoon of milk, but otherwise made the recipe exactly as stated. I also tried it with vanilla and it is good that way, too. What I love is that you can spread this on the cookie with a knife, and after you let it set, it smoothes out and looks shiny and perfect. Highly, highly recommend this recipe!

Apple 'n' Pepper Saute

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
This had a very "off" taste. Neither my husband or I liked it at all. It smelled great while cooking. I wish I had stopped after sauteeing everything and just added a little salt and pepper instead of the soy sauce and spices.

Easy Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
This recipe is fantastic. So fast, so easy, but most importantly, so delicious! I used a little more sugar (I like my coffee sweet) and half fat free half and half and half milk. So yummy! It was frothy and creamy and so pretty in the glass, too. I highly recommend this recipe!

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
These are really delicious! I made them for Easter this year adn they were very well recieved by anyone who tried them. I followed the recipe exactly, except I needed 3 Tablespoons of milk instead of just the 1. I made small eggs and I got about 54. We liked them best right out of the fridge, so we stored htem in there and had tehm as little treats throughout the day. Very good and very easy.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
These are delicious! I have made them several times now and I always get compliments on them. I have also been asked for the recipe many times. Really excellent and easy to prepare. You could pay a lot of money for these if you bought them in a store, but made yourself for a very reasonable price!

Dill Vegetable Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
This was very easy recipe to make. I am not a mayonaise fan, but I really liked it in this dip. I made the recipe exactly as stated. It was very easy to put together with most ingredients I already had on hand. I made it the night before my daughter's 5th birthday party and it tasted great the next day. I think next time I might double the amount of onion I use because I really like onion, but otherwise a really simple and yummy dip.

Mazarin Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
This was a delicious dessert! I made it exactly as stated in the recipe except I used 2 tsp. of sugar in the shortdough crust and I did not include the lemon zest in the almond paste filling. It looked really pretty on the plate dusted with powdered sugar. I think it needs the powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness. Two of my three kids loved it, and so did I. The texture was wonderful. It is not meant to be a traditional "cake", and the texture is smooth and creamy with the yummy crust beneath. The only thing I can think to improve this would be to use a tart pan instead of a springform pan (it would be prettier in presentation) and perhaps to top the filling with sliced almonds prior to baking. This woul give it a very pretty top and add some texture (if you like that) to the creamy filling.

Cinnamon Rice with Apples

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
This was just okay. It smelled heavenly and all of my kids were excited to try it, but no one liked it. It tasted fine, but was just too sweet for my family's tastes.

Half and Halfs

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
These were delicious and easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly except I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and turned the oven up to 350ºF. They took just about 9 minutes to bake. They really do keep their shape, very little spreading. They taste fabulous, and they look cool. Everyone who saw them wanted to know about them and wanted to try them. A very fun AND yummy recipe! My batch made 5 1/2 dozen smaller cookies.

Lemon Gold Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
This is a very good cake. It is not very lemony, but light and tasty. I made it exactly as stated, except I greased and floured the two cake pans instead of using parchment paper. They turned out really nice and pretty. In the picture tha cake looks white, but is really a nice pale yellow color. This would be a great cake with vanilla buttercream frosting, or as a homemade white cake. Really good and clean tastes.
