Pumpkin Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
I also made mine out of two bundt cakes and stacked them to look like a pumpkin. Due to the hole in the middle of the bundt cake I threw some pumpkin spice m&ms in the middle hole to be the same height of the cake. Then I took some of the cake I had cut off to make it even for stacking, put it on top of the candy, and had a stem. I used cream cheese frosting dyed orange for the pumpkin and green for the stem. It was awesome and so easy! The cake also tasted really good. I typically am not a huge pumpkin fan (except in my coffee drinks) but thought this was great. It was extremely moist. If I make it again I'll leave it as just a bundt cake with a glaze as you really don't need the frosting. I also didn't have all the spices on hand so I substituted an undetermined amount of pumpkin pie spice instead and added a pinch of extra cinnamon. I'm confident though the cake would have turned out better had I been able to follow the recommended amounts. Refreshing to find a good recipe that doesn't need alterations to be 5 stars on All recipes!!

Garlic Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
I cant give it five stars as I did not make it exactly as written. I only changed two things - I did not use peanut oil and instead used olive oil and changed the types of veggies to suit the tastes of those in the house. We all loved it. I have never made a sauce like this before so ended up adding too much corn starch and ended up then thinning it back out with more chicken broth but it still turned out good. Love recipes like this where it is easy to make your own changes but still keep the recipe!

Ethiopian Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
I made this for a variety of different people last week. First of all, it's very simple and it smelled absolutely phenomenal while it was cooking. Everyone really enjoyed it - even people who were turned off by the ingredients. I also didn't have cumin so I used the balsamic vinegar as well.

Banana Cake Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
I made these cookies and found them to be extremely simple. I omitted pecans and substituted cinnamon for cloves as suggested. I toyed with the idea of adding peanut butter to the recipe (as I usually play around) but am glad I didn't. The recipe was a hit. the cookies are SO moist and fluffy and delicious. I also baked a few with chocolate chips and those were also great. Thanks for an awesome recipe. I am a banana lover and always looking for banana recipes that others will also enjoy if they aren't crazy about bananas.

Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
I made this for a decent size group of people last night and everyone loved it. This morning when I woke up I realized I wanted to use Olive Oil instead of vegetable oil. But it turned out great. I didn't use rosemary but everything else was awesome. I also just baked it in the pan with the marinade at 425 degrees. Will definitely make this again and try it on the grill in summer.

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
I made this last night for my family. The ONLY substitution I made was using Turkey Cheddar Sausage instead of Italian Sausage to reduce overall calories and fat. It smelled fantastic and was amazing. It was simple and everyone loved it. It has enough "man flavor" for the guys, smelled great, and enough nutrition to please us women!

Mediterranean Tilapia

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
I thought the recipe was good but could be better. It was also my first time making fish so it could be my fault. My boyfriend loved the dish but think if I do it again I wll bake some of the toppings with the fish th last few minutes.

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
This soup is fantastic. The first time I made it I followed he directions to a tea, and it was a bit too salty but everyone that ate it loved it. I then made it again for a family holiday party. I ended up cooking it up in th crock pot and just letting it continue to heat up instead of making it on the stove. I also did not add any whipping cream and only put about 2tbsp of butter in - this is also for a doubled recipe. I added 4 garlic cloves, a teensy bit of milk, and a chopped onion and it was fantatic. Everyone that tried it LOVED it. Great soup to make originally how the recipe sates or to make your own variations!

Ricotta and Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I made this two times so far - once for a large group of people, and more recently for my boyfriend who is Kenyan, his roommate who is Polish, and their friend. It was a gigantic hit both times. There were no leftovers either time. I made no variations to it either time as the recipe seems to suit tons of different tastes. I HIGHLY recommend this - it is also super easy to make.

Greek Penne and Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I made this for my family and the guys in my family typically like heavy greasy food. But this was a huge hit. The next day we all made our own variations of the leftovers, we tried it cold, some added lettuce and ranch dressing, or just warmed it up. Good a variety of ways. Loved the artichoke hearts in it and next time will probably add just a few more of those or a pinch more parsley.
