Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
omg. this is really good! I used a mixture of cortland and gala apples; some turned into mush, others kept their shape, which was ideal. I also added dried cranberries because that's all I had on hand, though fresh ones may be better. I don't like my dessert overly sweet so I cut down on the sugar and used mostly brown sugar and 1:3 of white sugar. Baked mine at 400F for 40 minutes and it was to die for!

Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Yum! This is so easy but so tasty! I halved the sugar and added a dash of cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla, and mini chocolate chips. It was heavenly!

Awesome muffins! I used half white and half brown sugar, and added a tsp of cinnamon. The muffins turned out really good! I'll try using whole wheat flour next time. Thanks for recipe!

Tofu and Veggies in Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
Dangerously addictive. I kept eating even though I was full because it was that yummy! Here are my modifications (thanks reviewers!): pan fried tofu with minced garlic and ground ginger before adding red pepper, snap peas, water chestnut and broccoli. For the sauce, I used 2 heap table spoon of natural peanut butter, 2 tablespoon rice vinegar, 2 tablespoon soy sauce, dash of salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, sesame oil, and 1/2 cup water. As soon as I poured the sauce over the veggies, I turned off the heat. Served over brown/wild rice.

Berry Shortbread Dreams

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
It was easy and fast to make, but way too sweet for me even without the glace. I'll try using confectioner's sugar next time. My cookies retained their shape, so next time I'll flatten the dough before popping them in the oven.

Quick Chinese-Style Vermicelli (Rice Noodles)

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
A good basic recipe. I modified mine drastically. Instead of boiling the vermicelli, I soaked them in lukewarm water for about 15 minutes (or until soft) while I chopped up Taiwanese cabbage, carrots and sweet peas for a vegetarian dish. Dried shiitake mushroom would also complement the dish, but I didn't have any on hand. In addition to vegetable oil, I added a dash of sesame oil to fry the garlic. As well, I cooked the vegetable with oyster sauce, sweet soy sauce and light soy sauce before adding the vermicelli for a quick toss. Sorry if I butchered your original recipe!

Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
I did what other reviewers suggested and used 1 tsp of baking soda and doubled my spices. The taste is really yumz, but I must have done something wrong, because my cookies turned out flat and weird in texture. When baked for 8 minutes at 350F, the bottom was slightly charred. When I lowered the temperature to 325F and baked for 10 minutes, the outside was crispy but the center was uncooked. I agree there should be at minimum 3" spacing between dough because mine spread so much they stuck together. This is too complicated for me to try again. Sorry.

Mom's Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
As suggested by other reviewers, I doubled all the spices (i.e. ground ginger, clove, and cinnamon) and baked at 350F for 8 minutes. The taste was exactly how I like my ginger cookie. In terms of texture, I was hoping for something crispy but it turned out to be soft in the center, crispy on the edges, and slightly burnt at the bottom. The color was also darker than expected. All in all, I'll definitely bake these again, perhaps using light brown sugar and mild molasses. EDIT (10/16/10): Used the same recipe but different methods and different oven. Instead of hand mixing, I used a blender to mix the wet ingredients and hand blending the dry ingredients into the wet. Also, I changed to a gas oven, and baked my cookies at 375F for 10 minutes. They turned out perfect!

Torsk

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
I agree with the other reviewers that the butter and sugar can be cut down without changing the taste of the fish. I have a sweet tooth, but found it much too sweet for my likely; it also had an artificial sweetness to it that did not agree with me. Overall I thought it was okay, but gave it a 4 because it was quick and easy to prepare.
