Chi Chi Dango Mochi

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
Very good, chewy chichi dango! I had some at a Pinkberry the other day and had to try to make it myself! Here's some tips: It's fine to omit the food colouring. I used mango puree instead of coconut milk and it came out perfect! Only use 2 cups sugar, and it will be sweet enough. When covering with foil, make it domed so that the mochi doesn't touch the foil. I have a fairly new oven which has a higher temp than usual. I still baked for 1hr at 350 degrees, came out looking very runny in the middle (I could still move the batter around in the middle) so I turned off the oven and left it in for 10 more mins - came out perfect! It should look slightly UNDERDONE but not to the point where there is still liquid on top - will be jiggly and move around in pan. I left mine to cool overnight at room temp! I didn't have potato starch, so I used the mochiko. I microwaved it for 20 seconds to be safe :) Also, when removing foil it will stick, (I forgot to grease foil) so use the rice flour on your hands and rip the foil off the mochi, not the mochi off the foil & it will come off easily. When cutting, use a plastic knife wrapped in seran wrap which cuts through effortlessly and doesn't stick! What I did was dump all the cut pieces into the mochiko and then put them in a sifter and tossed them around to get off the extra flour on them! Good luck everyone! :)

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2012
It tasted good, and was VERY filling (2 slices was enough) however it turned out kind of soggy and not as crispy as I would have liked. It was a little bit floppy too. I had to cook it in LOTS of oil for it to become crispy. Wouldn't try again but good for my first try at french toast.

Mini Cheesecake Bites

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
YUM! I give these a 4 stars because I haven't yet used the Pepperidge Farm brand pastry shells yet, I used Tenderflake brand and they worked well too. I would personally double this recipe because it produces very little. I added a dash of extra confectioners sugar and found it was the perfect balance of the sour cream cheese and sweet fruits. I used canned peaches as a topping since they came with a little bit of syrup on their own. Great!! Would definitely recommend this recipe.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
AT first, I looked fine but while cooking, I had trouble with the middle of the pancakes being raw and the outsides burning. I turned the heat down a little, then it took around 5 minutes to cook each one. The taste was not necessarily delicious, I'd like to stick to my Aunt Jemimah's box mix now.
