Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
I did this recipe twice, baking one cake right after the other. As another reviewer noted, you have to beat the icing well (I used a hand mixer for nearly 15 minutes before adding the flour mixture and for 3-5 minutes after), so that you don't have a gritty icing. The icing isn't too sweet, and worked well with the cake. As for making the flour mixture, keep stirring constantly, and the mix will get nice and thick. Cool it completely before adding it to the sugar mix. The vinegar mix is kind of crazy, because on the first cake I did, I worked quickly, and the cake came out a bit more dense than cake #2 (where I practically threw it in the oven, I worked so fast). One last note: food coloring. I used a gel food color (about a teaspoon), but if I had to do it again, I'd try the liquid. Mainly, because my batter seemed a bit thicker than on the video shown for this recipe. Either way, the cake was a hit. Good luck!

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Made the recipe as is in a glass bowl (used more bananas/cookies to get a few more layers). Delicious! I beat the cream cheese at room temperature as others suggested, and even threw in some Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies to enhance the overall look. Everyone complimented the results and said it was the best banana pudding they ever had.

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
This recipe is so easy, and the flavor was good. I doubled the recipe and served it at a dinner a few hours later. I just didn't think the taste was something that I felt 'wow' about. Great for a quick meal, though. Update: I made this a second time (didn't double it this time) and served it immediately (also tossed in fresh broccoli I had cooked for a few minutes before)--much better!

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
I don't even like pork, really, but I was hosting an Asian-themed dinner, so I decided to try this. There wasn't any left over for me to have the next day (a good sign). Warning: this recipe is more labor-intensive than what I would do for a weekday dinner, but it is great for guests or a weekend meal. I bought the pork at my local Whole Foods, by the way, and I was a little shy about asking for 'pork butt', but the butcher knew exactly what I needed. Happy Cooking!

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
This did not last in my house. I've never made zucchini bread before, but this was a hit. Feel free to add in extra chocolate chips (I did). I tried some new bakeware (the flexible kind), and the bread came right out.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2006
I didn't put the extra basil on top, but other than that, I followed the recipe as-is. The parmesan melted just fine, and the dish was tasty. My only complaint is to nix the salt (or add a tiny pinch) because I added a sprinkle and it tasted a bit salty at the end. This makes a good side dish, though I'm not sure it would hold up the next day for leftovers (too dry?).

Pesto Tuna Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2006
This is a great way to change a regular ol' tuna sandwich. I added extra sun-dried tomatoes and a little chopped fresh basil. Very good, especially for those tho aren't fans of tuna to begin with.

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2006
My brother (and he's stingy with praise! :) ) actually complimented me for this dish. So, here are the only changes I made to the recipe to make it 5-star: Double the sauce; if you love sun-dried tomatoes like I do, feel free to add 1/4 or more extra like I did (extra on the garlic, too); cut the chicken into strips or chunks prior to cooking them to make things easier; finally, toss in sliced mushrooms into the sauce before you add in the pan juice/broth mix so that the mushrooms have time to soften. I ended up mixing the chicken in the sauce and adding all of it to the pasta. This is so good!

October Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2004
This is an excellent apple pie (especially if you make your own crust). Spring for the fresh crushed nutmeg if you don't have any, because the smell/taste is worth it. The caramels, unfortunately, didn't add any real taste difference compared to plain apple pie.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2004
The only thing I really didn't like about this recipe is it was too runny for me. So, the second time I made it I drained the stewed tomatoes, and used half of the tomato sauce. I also mixed about 1/2 tsp. cornstarch/some of the juices in the pot in a cup (to break up the cornstarch)and then tossed it back in during the last 10 minutes of cooking. I liked the color with the tomato sauce added in, otherwise I would've just taken the sauce out completely. It was great this time! If you like some kick to your curry, though, you're going to definitely need to add some spice (I added in a little cumin and cayenne pepper, because I like mild curry).

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2004
I have to give this one a high rating on the basis that I make it once every 2-4 weeks! I do tweek it, though. I like garlic, so I add 2-3 extra cloves. I also add cumin, dill weed, and cayenne pepper to taste (about a 1/2 teaspoon of each, less on the pepper). Do reserve some of the liquid from the garbanzo beans to thin the mixture, though.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2004
This was my first venture into turkey burgers. We've made these several times now with the our Foreman Grill. They're great with ketchup, and feel free to throw in extra garlic like I do.

Creamy Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2004
So good! I used a 9x13 baking dish and just doubled the recipe (using sauce generously). I added 1 tbsp. of Italian seasoning to the cream cheese mixture. This was excellent! Everyone had an extra piece.

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2003
I used 1 can of cream chicken soup, 1 can of cream mushroom, 1/3 c. milk, cheese/fried onions to taste, and an extra can of tuna. My husband thought it was wonderful (reheats nicely as well). It was very good and simple, even though I'm not a huge fan of tuna.

Cooking Light magazine's Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2003
So simple! The chicken was moist and delicious. I didn't have Italian bread crumbs, so I added Italian seasoning to the plain crumbs I had. I added some extra sauce and cheese, too. Good!

Bacon Cheese Treats

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2003
These are simple and can be varied to your taste. Instead of onion/pepper, I mixed real bacon and Lipton Onion Soup Mix into the cream cheese. They were gone within ten minutes and people were surprised at how simple they were to make.

Chris' Bay Area Burger

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2003
These had a lot of flavor. Definitely better than run of the mill burgers. I'll probably reduce the pepper a bit next time, though.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2003
If you like Outback's Alice Springs Chicken, you'll love this. Just make sure not to overcook the chicken. We had way too much sauce leftover is my only complaint. I also added some chicken seasoning to the breasts for added flavor before I cooked them.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2003
These were soft and chewy. Excellent cookies, but I wished they had something extra for some reason. Everyone else loved them, though.

Savory Crescent Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2003
I used red bell peppers instead of pimento and cooked the chicken with seasoning/the onion first. The final product was good, but not as good as I thought it would be for the effort. With a little experimentation, I think it could be great.
