Pesto Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
Great base recipe, like others I've since made some changes. I don't usually use feta, the first time I used Borsin which was great but expensive. Really anything grated or soft works. Garlic powder instead of minced garlic, and no added salt (pesto is salty already). I sometimes add chopped onions. Finally I use Italian bread crumbs for more of a kick.

Balsamic Tortellini

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
Wow! I have been making this dish for years so it's nice to see a recipe for it. I first made it when I didn't know what to do with some odd ingredients I had but when I put it all together it worked. Variations I have made: As others have said I think the pancetta is the best but you can use bacon or prosciutto. Olive oil or butter can be used to brown the onion. For more flavor: Add garlic salt (or powder), pepper, and whatever other spices you want to the onion/pancetta mixture! For a mild kick paprika is a nice addition. ... my boyfriend often likes to add hot sauce on occasion. **You can also add some of the balsamic vinegar so the onion mixture near the end of cooking to reduce it a little which makes it sweater

Ginataang Manok (Chicken Cooked in Coconut Milk)

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
Very good basic dish... I too thought it was a bit heavy the way it's written but I re-made it based on some of the other reviews and it was GREAT! Cubed some chicken breast, browned it in butter. Then simmered together the coconut milk, chicken, and spices (I used ginger, fresh crushed garlic, crushed and powdered ginger, salt, pepper... next time I will try adding rosemary or a bay leaf!) for about 20 minutes. Then added fresh spinich, simmered for 2 minutes and served over rice.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Like other people, the frosting is FABULOUS and I would rate it a 5 stars. There is nothing I would change about it. The cupcakes are good, but not the best I've ever had. I made them once and then again with some of the suggestions from other people and they were much better (hence 5 stars overall). I would agree that the original recipe is a little dry: Bring the flour down a little bit, bring the sugar up a little bit, add 50% more vanilla, and use BUTTERMILK instead of regular milk.

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
Good basic recipe! You can use any kind of tomato sauce, i've even made it with vodka sauces. I don't generally use more than 1 jar. This recipe can also be made with ground turkey for a healthier option

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
This recipe was very easy to follow and tasted good. Perhaps a little thin, I would like it to be a thicker soup.

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
Very good cake. Not your "traditional" tres leches, it is less liquidy when you cut into it, but the taste is fabulous.

Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
Very good filling. It does make a lot of filling as others have said, use a deep dish or you can just eat the extra as a "pudding". The only change I made was I added more coconut as I love the flavor.

Honey Oat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Like others have said, increase the brown sugar to at least 1 if not 2 tablespoons and the honey to 2 tablespoons as well... IMPORTANT NOTE: Don't use a "good" beer! Sam Adams was the worst bread I've ever had while Big Flats, Pabst, Bud Light etc were good. The nicer bottled beers (go for a CAN) actually don't taste as good, they overwhelm the bread. You really want just the carbonation and earthy beer flavor. Sounds counter intuitive but I've been making beer bread for a long time. Overall this is a great basic recipe for beer bread to play with.
