Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
This cake turned out super moist and fluffy (I made 2 of them).They were not dense at all. I find creaming the butter and sugar first easier them just throwing the first 5 ingredients together but other then that, the cake tastes great. The trick is to not over mix the batter.

Sweet Pork for Burritos

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
It was a nice change from other pulled pork I've tried. The smell while it cooked was nice but the sweetness of it took a little to get used to.I think it's because I've never had anything cooked with cola and my tastebuds weren't used to it ,but in the end I must say it was very yummy.My husband loved it and my son ate it too so that tells me it's a keeper.

BBQ Beer Brat Kabobs

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
Nice tasty kebabs and easy prep items. Only thing I had different was the amount it made.With all the same ingredients (could only find regular Johnsonville brats),I manage to make 8 long kebabs. 7 adults and 3 kids loved them so this recipe is a keeper.

Al Capone Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Awesome roast for a quick weeknight meal or a busy Sunday.My husband isn't a fan of olives but he said he didn't even taste them and that it was tasty. Warning: If you don't like prosciutto,mortadella and olives I'd say stay away from this recipe and look for something else.

2-Step Garlic Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
for a quick meal it is pretty tasty.Only thing i did differently was add some diced red pepper and more milk in the canned soup and let it simmer with the meat. I sliced my thick pork chops into not too thick strips and served with some couscous.Husband loved it.

Hearty Vegan Slow-Cooker Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
This is not your traditional chili but it is a good chili nonetheless . I did not have zucchini and squash so i replaced those with diced carrots and celery.Worked out nice and replaced the tomato sauce with vegetable cocktail like one reviewer did and it was also good.

Nacho Dip I

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
I rated 4 star with some of my additions otherwise I think this recipe wold be a bit boring. Added only 1 tablespoon of BILL ECHOLS's taco seasoning and 1 1/2 tsp onion powder to the cheese mixture and as extra layers to the dish, I added 1 lb of ground beef cooked with onions and a burrito seasoning mix and 1 each red and yellow pepper diced very small. Very nice to eat with the family on movie nights.

Chocolate Mousse I

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
To the reviewer who said her chocolate became pasty after adding her egg yolks ...this will happen if you add your eggs in hot chocolate because it cooks up the eggs.Make sure the chocolate is somewhat cool to the touch when you add the yolks and you should not have a clumpy pasty chocolate mousse.

Hungarian Flourless Hazelnut Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
cake worked out wonderflly on my first try and yes adding the nuts in the yolk mixture makes it super thick and hard to whip with a weak mixer. My kitchenaid pro550 had no issues with this . And then I folded the egg whites a bit at a time ( thirds) with a spatula . Raised beautifully too. Will be filling it tomorrow with some nutella chocolate frosting and serving it with some chantilly cream.

Herbed Chicken, Vegetable and Rice Skillet

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
This is pretty good. I used 3/4 cup basmati rice instead of instant and same amount of water as the recipe. I fried up the rice to give it a slight golden color then I added the water and cooked for 5 minutes uncovered before adding the veggies and chicken.I cooked it covered and on low heat for 15 minutes to get the rice cooked through .

Chewy Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
Ok I have no clue why some people say they are too oily and that they leave oil residue on your hands because I did a half batch in an 11 by 7 inch brownie pan and they turned out crunchie on the outside and moist on the inside. Not even a speck of oil was left on my hand when I ate them. Only different thing I did was do half brown sugar and half white suger and add choco chips instead of nuts.

Pork Chops and Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
Rice tasty but my thick pork chops were so dry even with 45 minutes of baking with lid on and at a lower temperature . Needs a gravy to eat it and definatly less time at baking.Maybe 25 minutes would have sufficed. Sorry won't be saving this recipe

Green Goddess Chive Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
very good dressing but does need to sit and marinate for atleast an hour or so to develop a nice flavour. Only thing i did different is not add dried tarragon (didn't have any) and added a sprinkle of sea salt.

Dannon Sunshine Smoothie

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
This was good but not that sweet.It was fine for us but next time I might add a bit more mango cause it was definatly not as orangy as the picture and maybe a bit of honey for sweetness. Also the recipe as it is now, makes more then 2 servings unless you serve really huge glasses. We had a full 48oz blender jug when everything was combined and that was plenty for 4 (with extra servings left)

Grandma Jeanette's Amazing German Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
Ok this is so close to tasting like the red cabbage at our friend's father's german restaurant that I was super happy I found one that made me go "Mmmm" with every bite like his. Thanks a bunch and this goes into my recipe box for sure.

Ham and Onion Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
The filling is yummy but I must say I did not use the recipe's pie crust because I love emeril's savory pie crust recipe.And in doing so, the pie just had that WOW factor in my mouth.

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
Second time making these and they were again delicious. The first time I did it as is ,this time around, I made them "healthier" by replacing oil with homemade unsweetened apple sauce but still added a table spoon of omega 3 veggie oil.I reduced sugar to 1 cup and added 1/2 cup craisins. End result was delicious but I think I will keep oil to 1/3 cup and the apple sauce to a 1/3 cup since I found the mini muffin paper cups tended to stick to the baked muffins when the oil wasn't used. Yielded 48 mini muffins .Thanks for the recipe.

Alsatian Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
Very tasty served with rye bread with butter on the side( great to soak up the juices). I replaced the juniper berries with 1.5 tsp of caraway seeds and used ground cloves , ground malabar black pepper and dried parsley as that is what I had.

Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
This recipe gets 3 stars because as written there is too much veggies to water and it did not thicken (with original amount of water) in my crock pot. So I decided to play with it ,and found with 2 more cups of water and some cornstarch to thicken it this became more of a stew that we are used too.Next time I will add some garlic and a bit more rosemary.
