Cream Cheese Tart Shells

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
These tastes really good- especially with the cheese filling also found on this site. Don't worry if the dough mix seems kind of loose even after refrigeration, once pressed firmly onto the muffin tin cups, it should bake and hold up pretty well. I love that it's only 3 ingredients and there is no grease needed to coat the tins!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
These were good. I used 1/2 c white sugar and 1/2 c brown. Instead of the cinnamon, I put 1 tbsp and 1 tsp of the pumpkin spice also from this site. For half the batch I also added caramel chips. These cookies took about 30 minutes to bake instead of 10 and made about 20 medium-sized cookies for me. It was very cake-like just as other reviewers had said. A mistake on my side, but I felt like the spice over-powered the pumpkin taste. Personally, I would have preferred a little more sweetness. Perhaps I probably would have liked milk chocolate more than semi-sweet because the spice and semi-sweetness resulted in a touch of bitterness. *UPDATE* I originally gave this a 4, but after leaving it for a few hours in the fridge, I had them again and they were delicious! :D I definitely taste that pumpkin taste I was looking for and the chocolate/spice was hardly noticable anymore. So definitely keep them chilled!!!

World's Best Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
I didn't like this at all. I've never had such an overly sweet, overly vinegary potato salad before. I was going to make the potato and bacon salad from this website and figured I should make extra to try this recipe also. I cut this recipe in half for 3 servings and the only thing I changed was replaced the evaporated milk with regular milk because I didn't have any. I'm glad I decided not to mix the dressing into the salad mix until ready to eat, because I would've wasted ALOT of ingredients. Instead, I only had to replace the dressing! I will not be making this again.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
This dish is good steaming hot. It's not the best Alfredo sauce out there, but it didn't claim to be either. I loved how quick and easy it was. I had all the ingredients around the house already but didn't have enough fresh grated Parmesan cheese as I would've liked. I used fresh garlic and fresh chopped green onion and cilantro. I also added pre-cooked shrimp to mine. It tastes great as leftover too! As soon as it was gone my boyfriend requested for me to make it again for our next meal!

Tom Yum Koong Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
Used lime zest instead of kaffir lime leaves, frozen ginger instead of galangal, palm sugar instead of regular white sugar, and added bamboo shoots (sliced) and the bulb of a lemongrass. It tasted just like the Tom Yum from my old fave Thai restaurant, Tamada, that no longer exists!!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Absolutely delicious! I didn't grate the butter - too complicated. You also don't need a food processor like some reviews say. What I do is thinly slice the butter then chop them into tiny matchsticks, they weren't even perfect matchsticks either. Afterwards, I take a fork and roughly incorporate the butter into the flour mixture. Besides that I didn't change a single thing. I love this recipe. I now make scones and store them in the freezer for an easy breakfast, just pop in the microwave for about 1 minute and you're good to go!

Pumpkin Pie Spice I

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
This was really easy and good to make to have on hand. Now I don't have to buy a whole bottle of pumpkin spice that costs $6+ when I don't often make recipes that calls for pumpkin spice.

Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
Maybe I made a mistake somewhere but I didn't care for it. My boyfriend liked it, hence the 3 stars. Made mine into little pizzas and presentation was good. I thought the pie dough itself was very rubbery and unappealing. I had a topping of ham, pineapple, and alot of cheese. Probably won't be making again.

Easy Pavlova

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
Had trouble with mine breaking and falling apart. I've never had it before so had nothing to compare to. Also baked for an additional 30 minutes because it didn't seem to cook through, it was incredibly wet. By itself, it was too sweet, I literally felt like I was eating sugar- but topped with home-made whipped cream and strawberries, it was spectacular.

Popovers

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
God... These were out of this world. My boyfriend couldn't get enough of these. Especially spread with the Cinnamon Honey Butter (also found on this site). I added a little bit of sugar and cinnamon mix to the popovers to add a touch of sweetness. Didn't have custard cups so I used a cupcake tin and had no problems with it.

Italian Chicken Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I had some leftover rottiserie chicken and farfalle pasta and found this recipe. I added salt and pepper to taste and added parmessan pepper on top. It was good, simple, and extremely fast.

Wonton Wrappers

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
I forgot to cover the dough with a wet paper towel, so it was pretty rough to work with. Extremely hard to roll out and took me a long time to get it really thin. But all in all, the taste is amazing! It's way better than the store bought kind. I used a meat and cabbage filling and fried the wontons.

Japanese Potsticker Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
This is a good basic recipe. I like to add 1 chopped Thai chili pepper, black pepper, fish sauce, lemon juice, and a pinch of chopped green onions. Yummy!

Potato and Bacon Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
This is a great and simple potato salad. I cooked my bacon in the oven for about 10 minutes, until it was very crispy. Cut the recipe in half to 4 servings. Add about 1 tbsp of white onion and 1 tbsp cayenne pepper. Didn't have Dijon mustard so I used regular mustard instead. Didn't have parsley so used dried dill weed. Topped off with chopped green onion. I didn't mash the eggs in the beginning, instead I put all the ingredients in the bowl, then tossed them all together. I had also made World's Best Potato Salad on this site, and this one tops it by far. This recipe is a keeper that I will be using as a base for my potato salads from now on.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
Mmm. I've never had a banana muffin before, but this was sooo good. I made changes that many people have suggested such as: in the batter, I added 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 3/4 tsp cinnamon, used 4 medium sized bananas, used 1/2c white sugar and 1/4c brown sugar. I meant to use canola oil instead of butter in the batter also, but I forgot and had already put in the melted butter. For the topping, increase to 1/4 tsp cinnamon. I had enough batter to make 12 regular sized muffins AND enough to make about 5 extra but I didn't have another muffin tin so I spread the batter on one side a loaf bread pan. I added chopped pecans to the loaf pan one. I also put the toppings on the last 5 minutes of cooking time. After I cooled both for about 10 minutes, I did a taste test. Both were very moist and good, but I preferred the one with the chopped pecans. The muffin ones were missing that extra flavorful crunch you get from the nuts. All in all, this recipe is a keeper! :D

Brigadeiro

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
Mmmmm. These were yummy. It just mostly taste like condensed milk, but I like condensed milk so I have no problems with it. I made enough for 8 balls, 2 were just chocolate - no coating, 2 with chocolate sprinkles, 2 with powdered sugar, and 2 with crushed peanuts. Both my boyfriend and I liked the peanuts the best. We both agreed that even though it looks pretty, the powdered sugar and chocolate sprinkles basically taste like the uncoated one.

Cheese Filling

Mmmm. It is delicious! I made it with the tart shells also found on this site and it was a match made in heaven!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
I used iceberg because I already had it available. It was do-able, not the best lettuce to use though. I thought the amount of soy sauce and hoisin sauce combo was too sweet. Didn't use rice wine vinegar, water chestnuts. Added sliced red pepper. Used grated fresh ginger instead of pickled ginger and fresh chopped Thai chili peppers instead of chili pepper sauce.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
I like to mix my guacamole with smashed fresh Thai or Hmong chili peppers. It's absolutely amazing that way.

Stuffed Mushrooms IV

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Mmmm. This was absolute heaven. The stuffing was both crispy and creamy. I love the taste of the mixture after cooking on the stovetop, but after it was cooked in the oven it was very scrumptious. I didn't follow exact ingredients in the recipe, I eye-balled and added more of what I love.
