Homemade Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
This recipe is actually really good. It does not make 2 pies. It makes one pie. Unless you like flat, thin, flimsy pies. I increased the pumpkin by 3/4 cup (trying to stretch the batter further) and added a tsp of vanilla. If you make one pie, just increase the baking time.

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I made this exactly as the recipe stated and it was good. Not the best, but good for how easy it is. I must add though, that if you bake almonds at 450 for 10 minutes, you end up with black almonds. I made this mistake and I want spare others the same mistake. I had never toasted almonds in the oven before so I was just going by what the recipe said.

Sweet and Sour Sauce I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
This is the first sweet and sour sauce recipe I've tried. It's a little vinegary. I also didn't have quite enough soy sauce, oops. Here is what I did: following another's advice, I used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar, instead of water I used apple jelly. I heated everything except the corn starch to a slight boil (the jelly will melt into a liquid) then I dissolved the corn starch in an equal amount cold water and added it to the pan and boiled again. It came out nice and thick. Next time I would cut back on the vinegar and make sure to use the correct amount of soy sauce. I used this on the sweet and sour pork patties recipe from this site and it was pretty good!

White Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
This bread tastes really good. It is more dense than I thought it was going to be. I needed to add more flour (about 1/2 cup). Maybe next time I'll use less milk as some of the custom versions suggest. I might also try sifting the flour to make it lighter. It didn't rise as much as the photo suggests. It makes a pretty small sandwich. But it is delicious. I made it the old fashioned way since I don't have a bread machine. I'll definitely try this one again. It's super easy as far as bread goes and I don't have to buy bread flour. :) update: I can never get this to look right without a bread machine. it always goes flat no matter what I do. It does taste good, but I want a fluffier bread that I can use for sandwiches. This is heavy and doesn't get "sandwich" shaped. I'm going to try to find a different recipe.

Soda Pretzels

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
I have made multiple pretzel recipes from this site and I always have the same complaint no matter how they taste: They never make a pretzel the same size as the ones you can buy at the mall! I cut this recipe in half because I was making them just for me and I didn't need 12 pretzels. I didn't even get them as big as regular mall pretzels and it only made 2!! So if you are thinking that these will come out making 12 pretzels that are the size of 12 auntie anne's pretzels, you will be disappointed. However, this is true for every pretzel recipe I've ever made. If you actually make them the size they are supposed to be, you will get 12 little pretzels the size of your palm at best. ANYWAY, what I have determined is that no matter what pretzel you try, they always taste the most authentic if they have the baking soda bath. However, you do NOT need so MUCH!! There is always all this baking soda water left over. Cut the amount of soda bath in half at least, if not just a quarter. uncooked dough doesn't soak it up much. Also, this dough is not hard to work with at all, as some people stated. If you brush them with butter half way through baking for a buttery taste. These are OK and will do in a pinch but the yeast ones are more authentic tasting. Find a yeast recipe with a soda bath and you're golden. And bake them on parchment to eliminate sticking to the pan. To compare to something store bought, these are most like SuperPretzel that you can get in the grocery freezer section.

Pluto Pups

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
These were quite good! I'm not a fan of cornbread so I was looking for a battered hotdog recipe that didn't have the corn bread batter. For this, I didn't have any self rising flour, but it worked fine with just using all-purpose flour. Everything else I left the same. I just wanted to use one package of hotdogs so I changed the yield to 8 and there was still a little batter left over. I ended up cutting the hotdogs into 4 pieces and skewering them with toothpicks. The batter was a little runny so I had to add about an extra 1/4 cup of flour to thicken it and I also dipped the hotdogs in flour before dipping them in the batter. that really helps the batter stick fairly well to the hotdogs. I will definitely make these again!!

Swedish Kringles

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
I think I must have been expecting something else when I made this. It wasn't good. The frosting is awesome! The bottom layer is completely flavorless and pointless. The middle layer needs more flavor and sweetness. It was very bland. The best part was the frosting. I think I might try this again but skip the bottom layer of crust because it really doesn't need it and it just crumbles and is dry and flavorless. I will add some sugar to the middle layer and more almond flavor. I couldn't taste any almond in the middle layer. Also, I don't know if it just my oven, but I don't usually have a problem and I bake A LOT....but I baked for 55 minutes and it looked done, I stuck in a toothpick and it came out clean, but it was NOT done in the middle. I tried to stick it back in but by the time I got it in, it had already flattened out and it was too late. Don't trust the toothpick test. I think when it looks done, keep it in another 10 minutes or something. I am going to try to find another recipe, but if I can't find one, then I'm going to try this again and alter it.

Frosty Mochas

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
Very good alternative to Starbucks frappuccino :) Will save a lot of money making these. I don't buy splenda but I used sugar free chocolate syrup and used regular sugar instead of the splenda. I am considering other flavorings like adding a little vanilla to it for something like a vanilla frappuccino.... will use this over and over.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
I don't actually like alfredo sauce (don't know why I wanted to make some...must be because I'm pregnant lol) but this was soooo good. I always have cream cheese around but I would have had to make a trip to the store for heavy cream so this recipe was perfect. I used it to make the "creamy chicken piccata" recipe from allrecipes. The sauce was fantastic! I will use this one again! Unless I lose my taste for alfredo when I'm not pregnant anymore HAHA

Creamy Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
This was good. Not WOW but better than average. I used the "quick and easy alfredo sauce" recipe from this site because I didn't have any jarred alfredo. The sauce by itself was really really good (5 stars) but once you get it on the chicken, the breaded chicken flavor kind of drowns out the alfredo flavor. Not bad though. I will make this again. Hubby likes the breaded chicken :)

Fluffy Two Step Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
This was really good. It doesn't taste like traditional cheesecake, it's a lot fluffier. I think I prefer a heavier consistency for my cheesecakes but this is really really good. I'm going to make it for a potluck a week from now and see how it goes over at church :) My husband really loved it and said that it's going to be a hit. I think it was made better by the sauce that I made for it. I just pureed thawed frozen strawberries with a few thawed frozen blueberries (I didn't measure but it was about a cup to 1.5 cups strawberries with juices and maybe 1/4 cup frozen blueberries) with about a tablespoon or two of sugar and a tsp of vanilla. It made a thick sauce that was really good with this cheesecake. I just topped the slices with it right before serving. For the potluck I might just drizzle it over the whole cake. great recipe. I also think that you MUST use the alternate version with 2 packs of cream cheese. This barely filled my 9 inch crust and the original that only used one package wouldn't have been enough.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
I've made these a few times now and they are sooo moist and delicious! I've made it as a bread and as muffins. I like to make a batch of muffins and freeze them and just nuke them in the microwave when I want a muffin for breakfast or something. I do add the cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla to the batter as some other reviewers suggested. This is the only banana bread recipe I'll use. I've never had a negative comment.

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
These are excellent cookies. I made them exactly to the recipe and didn't get flat or super crunchy cookies like some other reviews said. I baked them 10 minutes at 375. The only thing is that if you leave them on the pan to cool for more than a minute after you pull them out of the oven, they will stick really bad to the pan. This is easily remedied by taking them off the hot pan almost immediately after you pull them out. I think I let mine sit for just a minute. My first pan stuck really bad and a couple cookies got mutilated. Maybe next time I'll use parchment paper, but I was all out of it today.

Jalapeno Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
I'm cooking this right now and I can tell it is going to be soooo good. It smells wonderful!!! The only thing I did differently was that I cooked it on the stovetop instead of in the oven. i tossed in some sliced green pepper and onion to cook with the chicken halfway through. I took another reviewers advice and made rice with some of the extra liquid because it really didnt need that much. The only thing I changed about the ingredients is that I used 1 tsp Chili powder and 1 tsp Cayenne. Otherwise I left it the same. oh, and I used boneless skinless chix breasts (2 large). I made some extra seasoning to sprinkle on the veggies and put a pinch in the rice too. cook chix on low heat on the stove top so it doesn't burn.

Garlic Teriyaki Edamame

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I had to make the following changes due to what I had on hand: Used low sodium soy sauce instead of teriyaki, cider vinegar instead of rice, and olive oil instead of sesame. turned out good. I will make this again, I would like to get the ingredients listed and see how it is as written. I think it would be pretty good.
