Chinese Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
We really enjoyed this soup! I didn't follow the recipe exactly as written. I didn't have green onions or celery on hand so I omitted those, and used powdered ginger. I did as other reviewers and used vermicelli instead of the ramen and also added some egg, to make it like egg drop soup. My main complaint about the recipe is that it was way too spicy for me. I should have used only 1 TB of chili paste instead of 2. I also added quite a bit more sugar to cut the spice. Still turned out nice and tasty even if it is spicier than I would have liked.

Yummy Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
Great basic recipe for a pot pie and so easy! I did make my own changes (used biscuit dough and added lots of extra spices) but I love how simple this is and that the recipe doesn't use canned soup. Will make again.

Nanna's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Yum! This was my first banana bread and it was great! I didn't even bother with sifting or using a blender. Just mushed up the bananas and dumped everything else into the bowl. Very easy and made the house smell so good. I used chocolate chunks instead of walnuts.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
Very good and very easy to make. I think next time I will try doing whipped cream as other reviewers suggested, just to see the difference. This recipe is definitely a crowd pleaser as written.

Sausage Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Delicious and very easy to make! I did have a few issues during preparation, but it still turned out great! One problem was that after I cooked the sausage and added the potatoes, the 2 cups of water as called for didn't cover the potatoes, so I had to add more water...2 more cups. I also forgot to drain the meat, so it's probably good that I had more water to spread the fat out. Next time I may consider cooking the potatoes in a separate pot so that I don't have to add all the extra water. Also instead of adding potato flakes as some reviewers recommend, I simply removed some of the potatoes with a slotted spoon and mashed them up to give the soup a creamier texture. The great thing about this soup is that is still tastes great even if you don't make it just like the recipe says!

Lisa's Favorite Carne Asada Marinade

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
This is out of this world amazing!!! My husband made this (with a few slight changes based on ingredients we had on hand) and it tasted very similar to some of the delicious steaks we had in our travels to Latin America that we were hoping to duplicate. We will definitely be making this again! I served it as a steak with sides of black beans, cilantro rice pilaf, homemade salsa and guacamole. Delicious!

Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
This was good, but I really do prefer a thicker fudge sauce. However, the great thing about this recipe is that it used ingreadients that I already had on hand. I would make this again for that reason. I left out the cinnamon.

Decorator Frosting I

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
I used this frosting to practice some cake decorating techninque. I would probably give it 5 stars for the purpose - decorating...but maybe 3 stars for taste.

Chocolate Mousse Cake IV

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
This was good, but not as rich as I was hoping. Maybe I just had really high expectations since it has such good reviews. I enjoyed this, but I'm not convinced I will make it again.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
These were yummy and very easy to make. Very cute too! I also like that the recipe does not make a huge amount. I came out with the perfect amount for 24 mini muffins.

Bruschetta with Shallots

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
This is one of my favorite recipes from this site! I usually will put it on top of garlic bread and top the tomato mixture with a little bit of parmesean cheese. Then I put it under the broiler for a minute just to melt the cheese. This is AMAZING!

Teriyaki Marinade IV

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
This turned out pretty good. Much better than using just the bottle of teriyaki sauce alone. I marinated chicken for a few hours and grilled it. Then served with white rice and broccoli.

Garam Masala Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
This was so easy to make and tasted great! I cut the chicken into cubes, used about 3 tsp garam masala, used a white onion instead of green onions, and also added peas like other reviewers. Then I served it over white rice. Oh, and I also added some extra salt too. I found a pre-made garam masala spice at my local health food store in the bulk spice section and that is what I used. This was my first attempt at an Indian inspired dish and was very happy with the results! Will definitely make again!

Honey Ginger Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
Wow! The sauce for this was amazing! This is so easy to make and uses common ingredients which is a big plus. I did add a can of coconut milk, and increased the honey a lot...2TBsp. It was quite a bit spicier than I prefer so next time I will reduce the red pepper to maybe 1/2 TBsp. The flavor is really great even though it was too spicy for me. I also used fresh ginger because I happened to have some on hand.

Holiday Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
This was very dense. It was ok, but not what I was hoping for. The day before I made this I had some coffee cake that a friend made from a boxed mix, and it was so much better than this I am sorry to say. I probably won't make this again as it was just average.
