Conchas (Mexican Sweet Bread)

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
This was really good. Only change I made was in the topping, instead of using vanilla extract in half, I used almond extract.

Slow Cooker Chicken with Leek Soup Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
This was pretty good. I used drumsticks because that'ts all I had on hand and it came out real moist, almost fall off the bone. The consistency reminded me of a chicken & dumpling, so next time I think I will add vegetables near the end and maybe throw on some dumplings.

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2006
This was just ok. Reading some of the other reviews, I used only half a cup of dressing..still was a bit much, maybe 1/4 to 1/3 cup would be ok.

Basil and Prosciutto-Wrapped Halibut

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
Ok, my review is on one change. Instead of fresh basil, I sprinkled on dried basil. This was real simple, but I thought this was just ok, nothing special. A bit salty for me I think due to the combo of the prosciutto and adobo seasoning. If I make this again I would probably lower the amount of the adobo seasoning.

Ground Pork Cake with Salty Egg (Haam Daan Ju Yoke Beng)

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2006
very good!! I can't believe I found a recipe for this. My mother's recipe was "a dash of this, a dash of that". I never figured it out. This tastes almost as good as mom's was. Only thing different was I used 2 salted eggs (my mom's homemade) and stirred it raw into the pork, instead of hard boiling first. I'll be making this again.

Yummy Pecan Pralines

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
Wow, these were easier than I thought. I only made half the recipe to test it. I didn't have a candy thermometer, nor did I do the cold water test. I just kind of guessed and it came out perfect. I poured the batch into half a foil lined cake pan to about 1/4 inch thick. Let it cool, then broke it into pieces. Will definitely be making this again, and will be making the full amount next time!

Quick and Easy 20-Minute Chicken Posole

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
This is the first time I've ever had, let alone made posole, so I have nothing to compare it to. But it was really good. Only thing I did different was used chicken thighs and browned on both sides after the onions cooked for a few mins before adding the rest of the ingredients. I omitted the olives. Will be making this again.

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
Easy recipe. Cake was real moist. The only thing I did different was I made only half the glaze...glazed the "bottom" of the cake before turning it over onto a plate, then also glazed the "top". Half the glaze was the perfect amount. Will make this again.

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
This was pretty good. Mine was tart, but only because my plums were a bit tart. Otherwise unlike some reviewers, my cake came out perfect, I baked for the 40 mins, turned the oven off and left it in the oven for about 3 mins. The recipe doesn't say to do this, but seeing as how its an upside down cake, I turned it over onto a plate soon after taking the cake out of the oven. The only revision I did to the recipe was that I used all plums, and used almond extract instead. Will make this again.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
Very easy! and good. Only difference was I made these bigger than the 1 tsp size, that just didn't seem big enough. I free formed balls of the dough and rolled into the powdered sugar. I got 29 cookies, and baked for 10 mins. Its real good as is, but I think next time bake for 11 mins.

Chocolate Truffle Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
One review used an oreo crust so I did that too. I also used chocolate chips instead of squares, and baked for 30 mins. Rich and yummy. Will definitely be making this again.

Peanut Butter Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I didn't like this at all. I tried to like it, but I didn't like the texture of the peanut butter in the chili, its hard to describe the texture. Trying to overlook the texture, there seemed to be no real taste to this at all.

Asian Style Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
This was pretty good with a few changes. I used low sodium soy sauce, and used all beef. I liked the taste of the ginger, may add more next time.

'Got Some Crust' Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
I made some changes/omissions to this. I used a low carb pasta, low carb baking mix for the flour, soy milk. I omitted the Tabasco because I don't like spicy, and I didn't use the Worcestershire sauce because I didn't have any. And for the top crust I did not use the bread crumbs, just the cheese. I was kind of weary about it at first because the cheese sauce didn't look too appetizing. However the end result was pretty good. Will probably make this again.

Cinnamon Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
I can't give this a 5 star, because I didn't have any. But everyone else loved it, so I will give it a 4 store. I was told it tasted like a coffee cake. I don't know about others, but I didn't get a marbled effect, everything just seemed to melt into the batter.

Artichoke Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This 4 star review is based on my changes and potential. I'm trying to do low carb, so I did not use a crust, so that this was more like a crustless quiche. I used a 13.75 can of artichoke hearts, and put the artichokes through a a food processor for a few seconds. Made my own bread crumbs from some low carb bread adding in about 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning and a pinch of garlic salt. And I used 4 eggs....then baked for only 30 mins, long enough for the eggs to cook through and the cheese on top to get nice and brown. I will probably make this again, maybe use 5 eggs as one review suggested, and put in an 8" pan to make it a little bit thicker.

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
I didn't have any, but I give it a 5 star because it was a big hit here at work. Only thing I did different was I did not add any pecans/nuts

Portuguese Custard Tarts - Pasteis de Nata

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
Simple, easy, and very good. I have a slightly different version of this, instead of a vanilla bean, I put a cinnamon stick into the milk mixture, and then at the end poured in 1/2 tsp vanilla. Will definitely be making this again.
