Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
I did as the top reviews suggested: I had everything out and ready to go so I could work fast. I added 1/4 cup less sugar (I may try half cup less next time), added the fluff in to the pan LAST (microwaved it for 15 seconds first so it was easy to extract from the bottle) and I did not scrape every bit out - I avoided the bottom of the pan as I was afraid of crystallized sugar where the heat was highest. It turned out lovely, creamy and sweet. Don't omit the salt, it brings out the flavor and helps to temper the sweetness. PS: I cut it when it was very cold, using a cold knife that I kept cleaning with cold water so the squares cut beautifully!

Apple-Feta Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Very good I added 4 TBS oil to 2 TBS vinegar for the dressing. I didn't add butter and rather heated the walnuts up in a pan then added brown sugar and pepper to carmelize them.

Seafood Chowder

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
delicious! I didnt add all the butter - rather I used a bit of the bacon drippings and 1 tbs butter and it was perfect. I cubed little red potatoes skin on, added fresh thyme and skipped the curry too.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
So tasty but I will try a full half cup less flour next time as they tasted a bit too much of flour and were too dense and heavy. The flavor is there though, I am just hoping to perfect it :)

Baked Tomatoes Oregano

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Really delicious with a bit of mozzarella added. Use the best cheese you can, and fresh herbs if they are avilable. It makes a big difference.

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Best granola ever! I use less oil and do not add fruits or nuts as hubby doesn't like them. I add them to my own later this way everyone can tailor their granola to their liking.

Fluffy Canadian Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
I was planning on adding egg whites to my pancakes and found this recipe - a perfect base recipe!! I used buttermilk instead of milk, only 2 yolks and 3 whites, and added 1 tsp sugar and vanilla. I folded in a few fresh blueberries from our farmer's market, then served it with store bought syrup doctored up with vanilla and butter then heated. Decadent and delicious! Stir the least bit you can to keep the air pockets!!

Lubia Polo (Green Bean Rice)

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
This is completely different than the lubia polo I make. I fry bits of stew meat in oil with onion and garlic, then add tomato sauce, salt/pepper and tumeric and/or saffron. It is much better with saffron that has been ground up fine and stirred into melted butter then added. I do blanch the beans to keep them bright,and I like them crisp so add them at the end of the sauce. I do not use broth, I just use basmati rice (cooked in a well oiled large pot "al dente" - not quite cooked so the rice stays firm and separated). You put the sauce on top of the rice and continue cooking on low for a while then 15 minutes before serving stir it all together and serve. I like my rice very tomatoe-y so add more sauce, which is not authentic but there you have it.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
For once I didn't change a thing except to use frozen blueberries in place of raisins and add extra vanilla. Moist, full of flavor, and so yummy! I am so impressed. Next time I will try half honey half molasses. I think you can't go wrong with fruit/sweetener/liquid changes. The perfect base recipe,that is even perfect with NO changes. Thank you!

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
Gosh this is so delicious as it, but even better with a splash of wine in the sauce, as well as a pinch of cayenne or chili paste. I omit the salt as there is enough sodium in the soy sauce. At the last minute we add red pepper matchsticks and sliced green onions. Good with chicken too!

Amy's Barbecue Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
Very good - we don't like *too* strong a BBQ flavor so only added one heaping TBS into homemade Ranch, then tossed in BBQ glazed chicken legs (de-boned - used legs as it was all we had). Added red pepper and sharp cheddar. If you can use fresh corn - makes a huge difference.

Chicken with Mushrooms, Prosciutto, and Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
Really good - I like it with thighs but prefer breasts. I saute the breasts in a pan then add the mushrooms and create the sauce. The sour cream is added last, stirred and served immediately to prevent the grainy look and butter separation.

Happy Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
So delicious. I cut back on the butter and used 18% cream rather than heavy, and it was still very rich. We did add more tomatoes than called for, and added the basil towards the end. Letting the basil cook for 10 minutes kills the fresh flavor and turns it black. Served with freshly grated parmesan and caesar salad.

Chicken Enchiladas with Creamy Green Chile Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Good base recipe that is made better with the following additions: I poach chicken breasts in white wine and chicken broth with oregano, then remove and reserve the broth. Shred the chicken. Fry onion and garlic, add a bit of white wine, a can of chiles, chili powder, cumin and shredded chicken. Roll the tortillas with the chicken mixture and cheese. Add 4 TBS flour (less than called for) to butter then add a can of chiles and a can of salsa verde (green tomatoes and peppers. Stir in the reserved wine broth and sour cream - adding less sour cream to keep it a bit greener and fresher looking. A lot of changes but wow - one of the best enchiladas ever.

Easiest Focaccia Recipe

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
I tried this recipe because of high reviews and was very disappointed. I was able to rescue the recipe because I bake a lot of bread, but a novice would have a hard time because this recipe is flawed at it's core. To make a good bread you need to add the flour slowly, in stages, to the liquid, giving it time to incorporate. I also recommend bread flour, but that is not a big deal as you can make delicious bread with regular flour as well. You WILL need to add more water - begin with 2-3 TBS more. I also add 1 TBS olive oil and 1/2 tsp each salt and herbs (optional), then dimple the dough after resting/rising and top with oil and herbs (1/4 tsp italian herbs, basil and 1/8 red pepper flakes for a kick). I brush with oil then tomatoes sliced thin and parmesan. I am all about taking recipes as a start, but even the start of this recipe is flawed so be careful, or better yet find another.
