Brown Rice Breakfast Porridge

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
Really tasty (without the egg yolk, fresh strawberries instead of dried blueberries) but i gotta say I didn't try it earlier because the picture looks SOOOO awful. I had looked for a good brown rice pudding recipe and wanted to try this, but every time i looked at the photo I didn't think it looked appealing.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
Good news, bad news. I added three slices of pineapple with a little juice, zucchini, and cucumber (cucumber was a mistake, I thought it was zucchini). I didn't measure in these extras so I think maybe I threw off the proportions. Also used 1/2 c applesauce, and maybe too big an apple. Soaked the cranberries (instead of raisins) and coconut in boiling water. Bottom line: with all those wet extra ingredients, I realized my dough was way too watery. Just looked WRONG. So I added flour, added flour, close to 3/4 of a cup. The texture and cooking time were fine with my adjustment. But the muffin lost a lot of flavor I would have expected it to have. I think just so much extra flour. Needed more sweetness and more punch. (more cinnamon? nutmeg?) I'll have to make them again to see if I can get to five stars but I think it wasn't really the recipe's fault; still seemed good. Would also like to try lite sour cream/yogurt to see if I can get more moisture in that way.

Summer Tomato Pie

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
A winner at our house. No mozzarella but used provolone, no problem. Subbed ricotta for mayo (used about a tablespoon of mayo to keep consistency smoother) Stuck with the garlic, spread about a tablespoon of parmesan over the reviewers' suggested mayo on crust. Also, from another recipe, dipped the tomatoes in flour before putting them down on crust. I was determined not to have a soggy crust, and I succeeded! The cheese mixture was still a little thick and hard to spread evenly. But it was creamy good once cooked.

Brazilian Style Flan (Pudim de Leite Condensado)

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
Loved it! Really value other commenters-- followed the suggestion to use more sugar for more syrup. One question: I used a glass pie pan and ended up with plenty of syrup, but also a dark hard mass of sugar on the pan. I feared the carmelized sugar would stick to the pan so I sprayed with just a little cooking spray. I also used two tbsp water (recommended elsewhere) to get a good syrup. Did that backfire on me? Or is it inevitable to have that disc of sugar stuck to the bottom/top? Or did I do something else wrong? Also, I learned you really have to let it fully cool in the refrigerator. We couldn't wait and had the first slice when it was still a little warm. But the next day, there was SO much more syrup and it had settled so nicely. Hope I have an occasion to make another again soon.
