Tender and Easy Buttermilk Waffles

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2015
First time making waffles. They came out great. Fluffy, slightly crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. I used whole wheat white flour since that's all I had and combo of "soured" whole milk and light almond milk. Again, all I had. If you're like me and like 'em without syrup, it's a bit bland. However, the kids enjoyed them with syrup and chocolate chips, so it's a win. Will definitely be making this again with a little added stevia and maybe half AP and half whole wheat white flour. Thanks for this super versatile recipe!

Moroccan Shabbat Fish

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2014
This is a great recipe but BEWARE of the chicken bullion if you're keeping kosher. Jewish dietary laws prohibit meat and fish in the same meal. That said, I've made this recipe sans bullion and added tomato paste, chickpeas and long green hot peppers since that was how we usually make it. I know recipe Nazis, it's no longer the same recipe. But if you're looking to replace the bullion, you need to add a little extra oomph.

Herb Chicken Skillet with Spinach and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
We tried it and it was just eh. Right before tossing in the spinach I tasted the sauce with a tiny bit of chicken and it was super bland. I added a dash more salt and garlic powder, but it was still just eh. The chicken was tender and juicy, but there was no WOW in the overall flavors.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2014
EXCELLENT! Because I've been doing all my baking in a TFal Convection roaster (toaster) oven (which sucks btw) I had to double the cooking time. I've made it exactly the way it was written about half a dozen times and they've always come out perfect. When I couldn't bake right away I covered & chucked the bowl of dough in the fridge for a bit and it'll stiffen up and make it easier to spoon onto pans later. The last time though, I did as another reviewer suggested and added 1/2 tspn of cream of tartar to give it that bakery store crackle. It does nothing to alter the taste but it definitely made them look pro.

Asian Marinated Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
I tried this with low sodium soy and marinated thick chuck roast and 8 pork chops for a little over 1/2 an hour. The pork chops were really salty but they were kinda thin, the chuck roast was much better (still salty) and the flavors were good. I cooked the first 2 chops in a pan and tasted the finished product. Salty but edible. The next few chops I lightly rinsed in running water and tossed in a pan with a bit of oil spray. MUCH BETTER! Served everything with white rice & sauteed asparagus. Definitely worth a second go but with half the soy and add some olive oil and more ginger (I like my ginger).

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
I've made these pancakes exactly as written every Saturday for weeks now and the only thing I've changed since the first time was halving the salt and also halving the butter. From other pancake making experiences, I just think that 1tsp of salt per cup of flour for pancakes makes it a tad salty. And after reading another reviewers comment about forgetting the butter, I decided to halve the amount and they definitely came out fluffier. I compared two batches. The one with less butter felt lighter and browned more evenly as well.

Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2014
I've tried it the way it was written & agree with some reviewers that it was a bit salty & this was AFTER I decreased the salt to 3/4ts. The texture, however was amazingly fluffY & melted in your mouth. So I fed the 1st batch to my boy child, who agreed on the saltiness but with syrup he didn't much care. The 2nd batch, I used faux buttermilk (milk & vinegar), added 2 more tbl of sugar, decreased the salt to 1/2 tsp & mixed until the ingredients we're just wet but still lumpy. BEST PANCAKES EVERRR!

Cheesy Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2013
This was so easy and quick. The first time I made this, I started with just one cup of cream thinking to let the cheese melt a bit more before adding the rest. However, I didn't feel like it needed it so I left it at the one cup. Even then, after everything was combined there was way too much liquid. Next time I made it I only used 3/4 cup of cream and it came out much better. Both times though, I added two triangles of the Laughing Cow Swiss cheese to make it creamier. Delish! Thanks

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
Made this for DH's bday and it turned out fantastic!! I used the soft ladyfingers, doubled the espresso, subbed some of the mascarpone for a cream cheese mix, AND used coffee Patrón (tequila) as my liquor. AMAZING!! The cake is not done unless you let it meld together overnight.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
55 minutes is waaaaaay to long to be baking this cake..... in a 9x12 glass pan anyway. I'm not sure if it's correct for a bundt cake. I only put that sucker in for 45 mins and my cake was burned. All that oil also made it too oily. Boooo! Luckily, I bought extra ingredients just in case. Second time around, I baked for however long the box told me to, reduced the oil to 1/2 a cup, and perfection! Goes AMAZING with the German Chocolate Cake Frosting II from this site. The frosting and cake can still be warm when adding the frosting. BIG time saver!

German Chocolate Cake Frosting II

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
OMG! This frosting was DELISH!! I made a german chocolate cake for my girlfriend's surprise b-day party, and it was such a hit! People came up for seconds, thirds even. I tubed a bit of chocolate frosting on top to liven the aesthetics a bit and I wish I could've taken a pic and posted it up. Definitely a keeper!

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
I've been making different variations of this recipe for the past year, and it has always been a huge hit!! i love adding chopped tofu and mushrooms or spinach to make it healthier, and my husband gobbles it up ALL the time. (BTW, he hates tofu so I never tell him it's in it until he's finished. I don't think he even cares anymore ;p)

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
I could not believe the success I had in making these! I wasn't sure if I had to proof the yeast first, but I just added it in the mixture dry and they came out fine. Only problem was that the dough didnt double as quickly as it was supposed to, but I had time. I think I'll substitute coconut milk and add semi-sweet chocolate chips and coconut flakes the next time I make these. Be careful with these when in the oven. I wanted to check them after 25 mins and didn't get to them until after 28 mins, and that was all it took to overcook 'em. THey were still great, just a tad browner.

Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I've been making making this butter before finding it on Allrecipes. MY DH loves it. I use a butter/ olive oil mix, tons of garlic, a handful of chopped cilantro or parsley and a dash or two of salt. It's always made in bulk so that I can toss it in the fridge for later use. It can be chucked in the microwave for a few seconds to melt for the garlic chicken. We use it on bread products before toasting to make a yummy garlic bread as well.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
OMG! this ws sooooo good! I didn't have thyme and used milk. It was still perfect. I needed this soup for the green been casserole that I wanted to make. I almost change my mind about the casserole to have just the soup. Yes, it was THAT good.

Perfect Turkey

I tried this recipe last year and it really is as good as they say!! Moist, juicy and tender white meat. This year, I'll brine just the same and try the Cajun Turkey recipe on this site.

Mushroom Saute

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
I made this dish once. I even went out to buy nutmeg just for this dish. The nutmeg completely ruined it. It was sweet and had a little aftertaste that didn't sit very well either.

Funnel Cakes I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
The recipe used too much salt. I would halve it next time. At first, I thought that it was just me, but everyone was telling me that it tasted a little salty. We tried to cover it up with tons of confectioner's sugar though. Besides that, it seemed perfect. I used a ziploc bag, I cut the hole a tad too big but found a way to make it work. Will use again...with less salt.

Pancakes I

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2005
I barely make anything from scratch and found the results of these pancakes heavenly. I added 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips They were so fluffy and light. Never again will I use boxed mix. The only problem I had was getting them to come out even colored and pretty. (I almost always have that problem) I burned my first one, but it was still delicious.
