Tortillas II

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
I LOVED them, no exaggeration. This was a very basic tortilla and yet they were better than any store-bought brand I've even bought. I halved the recipe and made TWELVE mini tortillas... and they tasted great; made some great chicken fajitas with them! Next time, I'll add garlic powder and white pepper for more flavor. I recommend these to anyone who wants to try the real deal and not the store-bought with 10 unnecessary ingredients.

Perfect... perfect, and perfect. I added some vanilla and sugar which really made these crepes taste simply amazing. I loved them. Perfect for a low calorie breakfast!

Funnel Cakes IV

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
Maybe I'm just use to eating the best funnel cakes around (I use to work at Six Flags) but I thought these were plain. So, I added vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, and cinnamon until it started to get a sweeter flavor. I gave it 3 stars because I feel this has potential with the addition of flavor. UPDATE: I saved a little bit of batter from yesterday, and made more funnel cakes today, topped them with powered sugar, carmel, leftover cream cheese icing... and BOY... it was delicious. I will make these agin with the additions! 4 stars! ****

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
WOW. These (and my family can agree with this) cinnamon rolls were the best I've ever had! I followed the directions the the T and my my my... these were yummy. I ate 6. Seriously. I made my own cream cheese icing, but the rolls were the life of the party. Soft, warm, and fluffy. I did use a little bit of condensed sweetened milk, and real butter instead of margarine. Anyways, this gets 5 stars. I'll definitely make it again!

Basic Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
As a 17-yo, I find myself making "simple" meals... in other words, I live by packaged foods. After a sudden urge, I had the taste for some fresh pasta. I searched through the millions of websites aimlessly until I found this one, that had been rated 4 1/2 stars? It must be good. Simple, quick and BAM... fresh pasta? I'll give it a try. I followed the directions, with the additions of 1 tsp of olive oil, and less salt (helpful tips from the other reviewers), then I kneaded it for at least 7 minutes until it was smooth; put the dough into a ziplock bag, left to sit for 90 minutes. While my dough was relaxing, I made a shockingly wonderful carrot, garlic & feta filling, put that into a ziplock, and popped it into the fridge. As my dough, and filling relaxed.... I opened up a can of tomatoes, and simmered on low. 90 painful minutes later, I rolled out the dough easily, shaped little ovals... stacked two on each other, closed the edges (leaving just a peak open) and filled them with the carrot filling then brushed a little bit of olive oil on top and closed them tightly; boiled for about 5 minutes or until they floated. As the ravioli finished cooking, I melted some butter, parsley, and garlic in a large skillet, once melted and bubbly, I dropped the ravioli into the butter and cooked for about 4 minutes. MY MY MY... This may be the best ravioli I've ever had! The dough was perfectly cooked and most importantly, fresh. Served under the tomatoes, It was wonderful.
