Authentic Mexican Shrimp Cocktail (Coctel de Camarones estilo Mexicano)

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2013
This was fabulous! I halved the spicy components since I'm a bit of a wuss, but it still had a decent bite to it. I also did not have any celery, but the flavors were wonderful and I didn't miss it, with the crisp cucumber. I also added some minced garlic, as another reviewer suggested. I think I might add some more shrimp next time, as I like a lot of it, but the nice thing about this recipe is that it's easy to alter to taste. Will definitely make again, soon!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
This recipe was indeed salty, as some others have said, but since I only had self-rising flour on hand (which includes salt), I omitted the additional teaspoon. If I had regular flour, I'd probably suggest using about half the salt indicated. I also ended up having to add another 1/4 cup of milk after pouring the first pancake onto the skillet, as it was too thick to properly spread out. I would suggest adding small amounts of milk at a time until the batter reaches your preferred consistency, but add at least a little extra liquid so the pancakes will cook properly. With these alterations, the pancakes turned out well, and I would make them again.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
This was WAY too sweet. I should've checked out the other reviews, not just the ones on the top, before using this. I will not make this again. It completely overpowered the cake, and took it from something that was supposed to be rich to just plain sugary and bad.

Creamy Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
This turned out really well, and I didn't even measure everything exactly. I used a bit less butter and lemon juice. I don't have a double-boiler, so I stacked two of my deepest pans. Excellent recipe!

Absolutely Best Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
These came out pretty well! Not mind-blowing, but a lot better than most of the other highly-rated brownie recipes I've found on this site. These actually were kind of fudge-like. I added some chocolate chips and they came out well.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
These brownies came out very dry and cakey, and I did not overbake them. I used only one cup of flour, as others suggested, so I don't even know how the 1.5 cup recipe would come out. Sorry, but they just weren't that good, and unfortunately, now I have a huge batch of so-so brownies that I don't want to even give away, lest people associate me with them.
