Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
For what it is, this is a good recipe. Very quick, excellent soft and airy texture, but bland. In the future I would serve with jam. Maybe even slice and toast after baking like english muffins? If you're out of milk substitute 1 egg, 2 tbs butter, 1/3c water, dash of vanilla.

Shrimp Fried Noodles - Thai-Style

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
Do not use 1lb dried noodles, it is way too much. I used 8oz, and had to triple the sauce. Soaking and draining the bean sprouts is unneccessary. This recipe should be rewritten!

Sweet Chili Thai Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2006
Excellent sauce, easy to make and versatile. Dipped lemgrass chicken eggrolls into it, and used it as a sauce for fried rice.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
Only 4, because while the original is great, I prefer it with these modifications: I use 2 small eggs, add 2tbs flax seeds, use cranberries (1c) soaked in orange juice (1/2c) instead of raisins, and add 3tbs flour.

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
Fairly dense, I made the white cake. Kind of like a very sweet quickbread. I used 1/3c buttermilk with 2/3milk. I wouldn't use this as a cake recipe again. However, increase the sugar, and cut the cake in half horizontally. Then put on the bottom half a layer of whippedcream/strawberries, and finish it off with the top half. A sort of 'shortcake'

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2006
My changes: vegetable oil instead of shortening, 1/4tsp nutmeg. Soft velvety inside, perfect crumb on the outside. Not strongly flavored by the apple or banana, but you can still taste each, along with the spices. For more of a dessert I may add walnuts or whitechocolate chips and a cream cheese frosting. Great as is though! I bet they freeze well too.

Asian Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2006
I made these and the Maryland Crab Cakes I lastnight. My Dad, boyfriend, and myself all agree that these are really great, and our preference over the Maryland style. However, I did cut the chiligarlic down to 1 tsp, and served them with a soy/hoisin/chiligarlic sauce on the side. Very flavorful, the crab was maybe a bit overwhelmed though. Next time I will use less rice and more crab to get more crab flavor. The patties were less firm than the Maryland, maybe because of excess water from the rice. I will definitely make these again for more people, as they warmed nicely in the oven so they can be prepared ahead of time. Oh, I used fresh dungeness crab for this.

Chocolate Bread Pudding with Bourbon Pecan Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2005
Whole family enjoyed it. After it was in the pan I added a few handfuls of chocolate chips on top because the pudding didn't taste chocolatey enough. The chips helped, but next time I think I will reduce the amount of bread I used (3/4 lb) and increaes the amount of chocolate. I used 1% milk instead of whole, and the pudding was still rich. Will definitely make again, and will use the leftover pecan carmel sauce on icecream.

Vanilla Ice Cream V

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2005
Only 4 stars because I modified it as follows: 1 cup sugar 7 cups milk, 2 cups heavy cream 5 pureed bananas 3 tbs vanilla paste It was absolutely awesome. I threw in some finely chopped banana into 1/2 of it at the soft serve stage, and froze. Excellent!

Champagne Cake I

Reviewed: May 22, 2005
I added a very full cup of champagne and it gave the cake a great robust flavor (Korbel Brut). Defintely watch the baking time, as it is a fine balance between a doughy cake and a dry one. Also be sure to really beat the egg whites, as it gives the cake the right lift. I will definitely make this again, with strawberries sliced on top +a glaze. So good!

Fresh Vegetable Stir-Fry with Peppery Orange Beef

Reviewed: May 21, 2005
A few modifications though: I didn't use cabbage, and I used only half of the teriyaki sauce it called for. The orange sauce is absolutely amazing, so I thought that the teriyaki was excessive. A good vegetable to add would have been broccoli.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2005
I made the cookies according to the recipe, and split the dough in half. To one half I added about 1tbs of cocoapowder, and the other I left plain. In the end, the choice between eating a chocolate-peanut butter cookie and a regular peanutbutter cookie was difficult! Great recipe.

Yummy Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2005
I just finished reading an article on sweet potatoes (light or dark) and yams (brown/black, not really sold in the US), which are not the same thing. Just google sweet potatoes and do a little reading. Anyways, this is an awesome recipe my family enjoyed it when made with the New Jersey variety. However, they said they would have prefered the pecans chopped, not halved.

Pecan Tarts

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2004
I think that the directions could be improved, and the end result is really a 3 or 4 star recipe. Be sure to grind the pecans for the filling if you prefer the soft/even consitency like store bought tarts. I cooked the filling over medium heat, and let it boil for about 30 seconds before taking it off the burner.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
Be sure to reduce the amount of sugar in these cookies unless you like an incredibly sweet cookie! Other than that, this is my new standard chocolate chip cookie recipe. Chewy but not heavy.

Lemon Meringue Icebox Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2004
Easy recipe that becomes great with some changes. -additional egg for the meringue -1/2cup of sugar to the meringue -fresh lemon juice, a full 3/4 cup. -1/4 cup of sugar to the lemon juice. A regular pie crust works great with this recipe, and be sure to cook the pie until set, and then add the meringue! It took abou 15 minutes to brown the merginue, be sure to watch it though!
