Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
The coconut shrimp was the best. I am allergic to shrimp so I didn't taste them myself but everyone at my party raved about it, calling it the best appetizer of the night. This was easy to make and cook with a deep frying basket (purchase a frying basket and just use one of your pots as oppose to a deep fryer). If you are making a batch for a party then these can take a bit of time to prepare (I did each shrimp individually) so I definitely suggest making them the night before. I listened to a reviewer's advice and used warm raspberry sauce as the dipping sauce even though most people ate it without the sauce (they said it was extremely flavorful).

Mini Cheesecakes III

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
I love this recipe. It was simple and delicious. I listened to some of the other reviews and excluded the lemon juice and lemon zest. Also, next time I will put a little more than 1 tablespoon of graham cracker on the bottom. As a topping I used Supreme Strawberry topping and it went great with the cheesecake, really complimented it :-)

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
Great recipe. I used brioche bread and after cooking it for 2 minutes on each side I placed it in the oven (375) for 5 minutes. Also, since I used brioche bread I doubled the ingredients for each slice of bread, i.e. for 4 slices of bread I used the recipe for 8 servings size.

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2014
Great recipe. I use chili powder instead of chile sauce and I double the quantity of chili powder, ginger, and garlic. Also, I use dark brown sugar instead of molasses (I just add a little more of it). I also add some Cajun Seasoning to give it some extra spice. I tend to let it marinate in a ziploc bag in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. I preheat the oven to 430 degrees and cook the wings for 45 minutes. I turn the wings over after being in the oven for 22 minutes. I don't brush the wings with the mixture, I cook them with whatever stays on them when I take them out of the ziploc bag. I sometimes broil them for 2 minutes on each side so that they are a little crispy

Bacon and Date Appetizer

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
Was very easy to make and came out delicious. Instead of Broiling I set the oven at 350 and let them cook for about 30 minutes (15 minutes in turning them over). Also, no need for toothpicks while in the oven if you make sure the flap/unrolled end of the bacon is at the bottom of the pan when you first put them in the oven,

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
These were a hit at the party. My only advice/adjustment is to not broil the bread as it burns too easily, instead just set the oven at 500 degrees. Also, I added prosciutto on the side and my guest loved it. It is pretty simple to make and you can be made ahead of time/the night before to let the flavors blend in.

Blue Cheese and Pear Tartlets

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
These came out great. Followed other reviewers advice and used some cream cheese to reduce the over powering flavor of the gorgonzola. I also used canned pears that were not in syrup (just in pear juice), walnuts, and honey. Some people who normally dont like the flavor or blue cheese liked them while others thought the blue cheese flavor was too prominent.
