Cinnamon Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
I was very disappointed when I made this recipe. It is very egg-y in flavor. It also didn't crisp up even on the highest setting of the waffle maker. I'd use only 1 egg and use more flour if I were to try this again, but I think I'll just keep hunting for a great recipe instead.

Pumpkin Bread V

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
Great bread, though I added some more spices and another half cup of pumpkin. Husband's workmates loved it.

Graham Cracker Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
I live in Britain and "graham crackers" don't exist here, so instead I used crushed digestive biscuits for this recipe and it turned out wonderful!!!!! It was such a hit with the pumpkin cheesecake I made. Yummy!

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
Add some plain cashews to the mix (with a little more of each ingredient to taste) and the snack still turns out well.

Pumpkin Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
First of all, I have to say this is a wonderful, yummy recipe. I did everything exactly as the recipe stated and I wonder if people become confused regarding the rolling boil. Do not lower the heat and maintain the rolling boil for the eighteen minutes! This is key. I should note that as I live in the UK now, I couldn't find marshmallow paste or canned pumpkin. I used a real pumpkin by baking it in about a half inch of water at 500F, removing the rind and blending the flesh. For marshmallows, I simply mixed the butter and a bag of marshmallows over heat as you would do for Rice Krispie Treats. I used this for the marshmallow mix. All in all, everything turned out great. My advice would be to proceed cautiously and accurately. This was my first attempt at fudge too. :) Good luck!

Baked French Fries II

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
This is an excellent way to spice up homemade fries. As another reviewer noted, I found the ziplock method works best by shaking all the ingredients together first and then dumping them on a pan and spreading them out.

Spinach Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
This was an excellent dish which my husband really enjoyed. We used fresh spinach from the garden and vegetable stock water instead of chicken broth and it was still very yummy. We had to use jalapenos from brine since we were unable to obtain any fresh ones and I think we may have used a bit too many as it was quite hot/spicy after it was baked! You could change this recipe in many ways and it would still be very yummy. Next time I'm trying mushrooms instead of jalapenos.

Chocolate Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
I diverged from the recipe quite a bit in that I had no milk in the house, so I used coconut milk and cream. This perhaps could account for the fact that my pie had no layered look whatsoever, though I'm not sure. Nonetheless, the 1 cup of coconut milk with coconut chunks really added something nice to this dish. I will say that the only real problem I found with this recipe is that I could not at all make meringue from those amounts. Perhaps it's because I used raw cane sugar? I'm not sure. The pie has a good taste--very, very sugary sweet though. Cheers!

One Bowl Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
This is a quick and easy recipe. I used a touch of baking powder and mixed in some chocolate chips as well and it turned out swell. Cheers!

Savory Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2005
This was great, and I was skeptical! I just found it took a little longer than expected. Also, important note. I made rolls in a glass pan and a metal pan--and the glass pan rolls were FABULOUS while the metal pan rolls were just okay. Only other problem- what do you do with the remaining cake mix? haha! :)

Cottage Cheese Perogies

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2005
The recipe took me more than 40 minutes, but that's no big deal. I used some oil in the water to put the perogies in... Also, I took the last reviewer's advice and used potatoes, onions, and cheddar, and they were also pretty good. My boyfriend, of course, thought it would be a bit better with meat (carnivore vs. vegetarian, I suppose.) Cutting up some mushrooms and adding them to the mix is also good. :)

Stovetop Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2005
I agree with the comments by the two that said add sugar and lots more milk. I had some bananas that were going to go rotten, and very little in the cupboard and fridge, so I found this recipe and took a chance on it. Be carefull about burning the pudding to the pan--it happens fast, especially if you don't add more milk. (I imagine a little bit of water wouldn't hurt either.) With mine, I added a few chocolate chips to give a swirl in the pudding, and it really increased the flavor. If you get the right thickness, this would also be a good pudding pop. :)
