Gnocchi I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
This is definitely a good recipe! Though I recommend bringing along some time to let the potatoes cool completely, since they'll get very sticky if you use hot/warm potatoes, so you'll need more flour. For working moms: Prepare the potatoes a day in advance ;-) Also use ~1lb of potatoes with 2 cups of flour. For a better taste add salt and pepper to the dough. If you are about to serve gnocchi for the first time and you don't have a clue how to serve them: prepare a mozarella sauce and a light salad as a side dish, since gnocchi are pretty rich. Good luck!

Jamaican Spiked Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2012
It was delicious! BUT...beware when setting the chicken on fire! My boyfriend and I almost set the kitchen on fire, because it BURNS very QUICKLY and the flames will RISE very HIGH !! Try doing it outside or at least make sure you have enough room for the burning chicken. I will def make this again, but I'll add some more flavor to it. I'm sure a pinch of thyme and a dash of pimento will make it 5-star.

Real Strawberry Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
I made 2 batches of this. The first batch I stuck to the recipe - as many reviewers said, they were rather bready and not the best- naturally, since there wasn't any additional liquid added except from the strawberries. to put it in a nutshell: good idea, not so good recipe But, as I was eager to serve some really good cupcakes with strawberries, I made another batch. This time, I changed the recipe a "tad" as follows: -add 1 - 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda -add 1/2 cup of cream (if you shake the container a bit before adding the cream, you'll get even fluffier results, for a "calorie aware version" add milk or buttermilk instead) -add 1 teaspoon of strawberry preserves (it will satisfy those who missed the strawberry flavor) -to not end up with a weirdly brown cupcake because of the strawberry puree, just cut the strawberries into really small pieces -when filling the cupcakes, pour about one teaspoon of batter, just so the bottom is coverd and then, place, depending on the size, a quarter or half a strawberry, before filling them up completely. This will add additional moisture to the cupcake - and it is a really nice surprise when biting into it - voilà , happy cupcake consumers !
