Cinco de Chili Chocolate Cupcakes with Chili Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: May 11, 2015
Well, I thought they were great, but I didn't love the boxed mix I chose. I went with Betty Crocker bc Box Tops for Education, but I wish I'd gone with Duncan Hines. Sorry Betty Crocker, but it's true: You come in dead last even after Pillsbury. But anyway, I thought these were great. They made exactly 24 with quite a bit more frosting than I needed, but I didn't pipe. I do think it'd have made enough to pipe and maybe even core and fill them, which would've been super tasty too. I added a sprinkle of cayenne to the tops for decoration. These are show-stoppers and conversation pieces, for sure. Can't wait to hear what DH's coworkers think! P.S. I added quite a bit more cinnamon to the frosting just because it seemed like a tasty idea. Go with that if you love cinnamon, it doesn't override the pepper or the chocolate!

Healthier Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: May 4, 2015
I could not have used the full 4.5 cups of flour without ruining it.

Cranberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2015
I needed to add more sugar for my tastes, but this was excellent. I used my immersion blender to emulsify it and it stayed mixed for the 3 days it took to finish it off. Thanks!

Glazed Almond Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2015
I made only the cake part, but I was thoroughly satisfied with it. 5 stars! P.S. - I toasted my almonds before grinding them. Love that flavor!

Cucumber and Apple Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2015
We liked this a lot though I did use more cucumber and less apple. That's just how the size of my food worked out, it wasn't a well thought-out plan or anything. Tasted great, thanks!

Old Time Kentucky Bacon Milk Gravy for Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2015
This is thoroughly delicious. Loved it. I do agree with the reviewer who said the ratio of flour:fat:liquid is off, it is. Takes too long to cook it down thick enough. But it does eventually thicken beautifully and makes a plentiful serving, so I wouldn't say it's "wrong" exactly. It's just slower. If it tastes burnt you probably used burnt bacon grease, it's not likely that the roux cooking time had anything to do with it - roux for gumbo cooks for nearly an hour before you add liquid, and while it can burn, 15 minutes is the correct amount of time to turn the roux a caramel brown. I followed this recipe to the letter and had a superior product - you can, too.

Mock Chocolate Cookie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2015
I thought this came out great, tho be warned as written this is more crust than you need for a normal pie. Thanks for sharing!

3 C Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2015
Used a maraschino-almond glaze and made this as cupcakes. Very nice, but they don't keep well - they get dry fast. Probably needs more moisture or oil or make a half-batch for us. Missing a spice to make it like the Czech bread I'm wanting - maybe cardamom? Thanks for sharing!

Simple Spicy Hummus

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2015
Husband really liked this one. I did add salt. I really liked how red it gets from the paprika and cayenne. I would add that oil (best) and the juice from the can (2nd best) are both a lot better than water at emulsifying this into a wonderful consistency, like storebought, but you may want to avoid one or the other or both for dietary needs etc. A nice strong olive oil, and lots of it, is preferred by the DH for hummus! Thanks for sharing.

Roasted Potatoes with Greens

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2015
I really liked this, though I will have to vastly decrease the rosemary in the future and possibly add an onion. I also thought this could tolerate a lot more spinach, making it an even better side dish (for my family). We'll make this again, thanks!

Heavenly Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2015
I'm not loving this as much as everyone else and it did turn out right for me. I think I'm not liking the zing, and I do love lemon. I iced it with a cream cheese frosting (made mine into a King Cake, the holiday snuck up on me this year) and then dusted it with Mardi Gras sugars...still didn't really excite me. The husband & toddler loved it though, maybe it'll grow on me by tomorrow. If so I'll add another star. *It's better the 2nd day, so I did add another star. ***I did add buttermilk to thin the batter and I still wound up having to smash it in place with the back of my spatula into my pan.

Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2015
The texture was interesting, not bad but not ordinary. The flavor was quite dull, probably due to the lack of salt which I'd have added if I'd noticed in time. I appreciated how quickly it came together and, as I'dI baked all 3 mugs before dinner, was pleased they were still steamy after dinner on account of the coffee mugs. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Chicken Lemon Linguine

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2015
This was 4 stars the day I made it but 5 stars the next day. I'll double the lemon next time but otherwise this recipe is a spot-on winner. Serve with salads or broccoli to pour the sauce over that first night! Thanks for sharing!

Thai Chicken Bites With Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2015
We liked this very much. You can find the peanut sauce in the Thai section of your international aisle. I've had similar dishes with peanut butter that absolutely revolted me, but I love Thai food and the bottled House of Tsang sauce went well here. In the future I might sweeten and ginger up the sauce a bit more because I love those favors. Thanks for sharing!

Apple-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2015
This was my 2nd tapioca pie. The previous one was all blackberries and half the sugar and it set up better. This was still worlds less runny than most fruit pies and I appreciate the lack of pastiness that flour/cornstarch confer. Thanks for sharing!

Blackberry Pie IV

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2015
This was the best result I've ever had on a fruit pie. No runniness, and no chalky pastiness from flour/cornstarch either. I used "minute" preground tapioca. Worth every penny!

Skillet Chicken Bulgogi

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2015
We thought this was extremely tasty, though it didn't really taste much like bulgogi to me due to not being cooked on an open flame. It was still extremely delicious. I wound up finishing mine on a sheet pan in the oven so I could broil it to crisp up the skin a bit, and also bc it was sort of stewing in my 12-inch skillet. I think in the future I'd just broil it right from the get-go, the internet is full of instructions on how to do that if you're curious to try that route. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Served with rice on lettuce cups to make it remind us even further of bulgogi :)

Kimchi Fried Rice (Kimchi Bokkeumbap)

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2015
My toddler and I enjoyed this for lunch to use up leftover kimchi from another recipe. I scrambled the egg in like more traditional recipes and we liked that very much. Thanks for sharing!
