Roasted and Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
I made this completely vegan, and it was delicious! Almond milk instead of the yogurt, and it worked fine. I upped the level of squash to keep the thickness, and got rave reviews from everyone :)

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
I discovered halfway through making this that my sour cream was 4 months out of date, so I improvised with whole milk and vinegar instead, using 11 oz total, instead of the 16 oz of sour cream. Turned out fine! Some people like their banana bread firm throughout, and with a softer crust, but others like it like this recipe, more of a coffee cake texture. It turned out with a lovely crunchy outer coating and very tender inside. More of a bananas foster flavor than the traditional banana bread, but I'm in love. I did have to increase the time of cooking, but it wasn't much. If you don't know basic rules of baking, such as sticking in a knife or toothpick to test how done it is, then you fail at life.

Emily's Famous Marshmallows

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
The recipe is 5 stars by itself, but the directions are a little unclear, and I made some boo-boos on my own. First mistake was using the egg whites from a carton!!! I was being lazy, and I paid for it. Second mistake was not beating the egg whites long enough. A few more mistakes, and I get something runny (but it still tastes good!) So I'll let it set overnight and see how it turns out. but I'll try my darnedest to get mine as perfect as the ones in the pictures! I'm using a frog mold to get the Peppermint Toads from Harry Potter! I used different recipes in the past, but they always worked out...

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
I love this recipe! I've used it either savory or sweet, but it always turns out perfect--5 stars just aren't enough!. I'm the worst bread baker ever, but this was foolproof when used with my bread machine on the dough setting. The family loves it, and it's quite easily my favorite bread recipe ever

Turkish Delight

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
This recipe is a disaster. I've tried MANY different recipes, and some came out better than others, but this was one of the worst. First of all, it tastes like jell-o. That is not the traditional taste, neither is the orange flavor. The proportions are wrong, and the directions are extremely unclear. True Turkish Delight takes about two hours to cook, and then another night to set.
