Ono Butter Mochi

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
Mmmm! Simply delicious! Instead of a a 9x13 pan, I use a muffin pan for individual servings. I fell in love with mochi the first time I had it. Not so easy to find fresh butter mochi on the island, so I decided to make it myself. My husband was skeptical, but LOVED it. The kids loved it, even my 2 year old! But as a warning, if you use the muffin cups, the mochi will probably tilt in the pan as they try to "pop" out, but I haven't yet had one actually come all the way out.

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: May 24, 2005
This recipe was O.K. A tad bit dry, and they did not spread even remotely in the oven, so I flattened with the back of a spoon. But, pretty good, extremely easy. Would be excellent dipped in chocolate, i'm sure.

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2005
Not too shabby for traditional stuffing. Tastes like the stuffing my grandmother used to make. I'm not horribly fond of extremely flavorful and powerful stuffings. I enjoy a more mellow taste, and this recipe did it.

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2004
I didn't use almonds, and I didn't cook this to the full temperature, instead I cooked it to just beyond the hard ball stage, stirred it while it cooled for a couple minutes, then poured it all over fresh air-popped popcorn, then stirred it around the best I could. It's delicious! It maybe wasn't as sweet as chocolate covered toffee, but was MUCH more filling. Great recipe!

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2004
Pretty good. It really DOES taste like the kind used in restaurants, although i'll use a bit more spice next time. I'm so happy I found this recipe amongst all the others... I can't stand bottled dressings.

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2004
Not my favorite. Used these on sugar cookies, and it took forever for them all to be eaten. Maybe this frosting would work as a deterrent for those trying to lose weight. It just seemed more greasy than creamy.

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2004
Delicious!!! I baked the ribs the entire time with the sauce, about two hours. It doesn't get much better than this.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2004
Excellent! So easy my 6 year old could have made it with little to no help from me. The only thing I had a problem with was finding KEY LIMEs or key lime JUICE. I ended up just buying a bottle of regular lime juice, which made it a bit tart -- the way we like it here.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2004
Great flavor, very rich, and not too horribly sweet. I add cinnamon and chopped walnuts to the crust for a little extra kick. This cake had the perfect texture, but in my 10 3/4 inch dark nonstick springform pan, the outside cooked far too fast while the inside was absolutely perfect, all regardless of using room temperature ingredients and careful mixing. I imagine it would be completely perfect in the proper size pan, if you can perfect the baking times for your own pan and own oven.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2004
Perfect carrot cake. Well, actually, the cake by itself is a bit bland, even with extra cinnamon, and the frosting is a bit knock-you-off-your-feet-sweet, but together, they're absolutely perfect. They compliment eachother beautifully. If I had known carrot cake was this easy to make, I don't think I would have waited so long to try it, especially since I can pronounce every ingredient, unlike boxed cake mixes.

Luscious Eggnog

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2004
Pretty decent! Not too different from my Mother in Law's eggnog, which is to DIE for! A definite plus is the custard base since i'm pregnant and don't want to risk raw eggs, nor will I give raw eggs to my children. A much creamier, smoother egg nog than store bought, and worth the little time and effort spent.

General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2004
This recipe wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. Not exactly what i'm looking for, but we all have different tastes. The sauce seemed a bit gingery, and tasted quite a bit like teriyaki only stronger soy sauce taste. Perhaps cut back on the ginger. Even adding the chicken at the last minute results in soggy pieces of chicken. Not unlike restaurant style General Tsao's, probably Cantonese style Chinese cooking, but i'm looking for safeway deli style General Tsao's. Not bad, not great.

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2004
Pretty decent for homemade, but definitely not professional quality, even if you follow the recipe to a "T". The doughnuts don't keep very well, and will be pretty stale within twelve hours, even when kept in an airtight container. But while they're hot, they're pretty tasty.

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
Great zucchini bread. I add raisins to mine, although it might be too sweet with raisins for some people. Wonderful when it's warm, with a bit of butter spread on top. If you're lucky enough to have it last several days, then it keeps very well. Just pop a slice or two in the microwave, and there's your snack. A definite must try for anyone who likes zucchini bread and/or banana bread.

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
It didn't taste much like cranberries to me, but it was delicious nonetheless! It seems almost like a jam, and I imagine would go well on your morning toast. Kids and hubby liked it, we just didn't have enough room with turkey to eat hardly any of it. Makes PLENTY for a big meal with guests.

Colleen's Potato Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
OUTSTANDING! These rolls were WONDERFUL. I was a bit worried when the mashed potatos still showed a few lumps, but they disappeared in the rolls. These are some of the best rolls i've ever had. DEFINITELY a keeper. Easy to make, but time consuming. Well worth the wait. Went great with Thanksgiving dinner, even my kids ate them instead of throwing them like storebought rolls.

Cheesecake Supreme

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2003
I used a bigger pan (10 3/4 inches) and perhaps that's why this recipe flopped. I followed the other reviewer's instructions, though.. it's edible, although the top is cracked and crispy. It has a custard-like taste, probably from the 7 eggs. Cutting the sugar in half for the crust really helped, and I added about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to the crust. The crust is very yummy. I'll keep looking for a better recipe.

New England Clam Chowder I

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2003
A great, basic recipe. Easy to follow, and easy to add on. My kids eat it up, my husband takes leftovers to work with him the next day. We prefer this chowder as is, garnished with a bit of green onion and crumbled fresh bacon. It doesn't get any better than this!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2003
Not bad, but not that good, even with added herbs and spices. Does make a large quantity, and very easy to make. Tasty but not extraordinary, although a welcome change from grease soaked delivery pizza. Probably the best recipe you'll find for homemade pizza crust.
