Pumpkin Spice Ricotta Creme

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
Since being on the South Beach Diet for a week now, this is the best thing I have eaten so far. I took one bite and it tasted like pumpkin pie... even though there's no pumpkin! Delicious!!! I'll definitely have it again tomorrow!

Skillet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
I have made this cornbread time and again and it's always fantastic! I don't like celery much, so I always either double the onion amount (1 cup) or just leave it out. I love onions, so doubling the onion amount makes it very flavorful. On occassion I haven't had onion around the house but still wanted to make this and it still tastes great! Just be sure to add 3 tbs of melted butter to make up for it. :) I also add a bit more spice using a tsp of oregano, and some italian seasoning. The recipe is always plenty sweet for me because I use three heaping tbs of sugar. If you like sweet cornbread, heap your tbs and you'll be just fine. This recipe is fantastic, fun to play around with, keeps great, and always always tasty!

Bavarian Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
This recipe called for ingredients I don't normally have around the house, which would be okay if the taste was worth it. Unfortunately, the description is accurate when it calls the cream "light," since it was nearly tasteless... the gelatin somehow ended up really chunky, and the overall texture of the cream was less than pleasant... also, if you do choose to use this, be sure to stir constantly when boiling the milk, I seared the bottom of my pan by accident. I had to add extra sugar and vanilla to this to make it taste somewhat decent, but decided it would ruin my cake if I were to use it for a filling, and it didn't taste good enough on its own. It could be that I did something wrong, but I reviewed the recipe again after I was finished to make sure I did everything right and... well the result just wasn't very good at all. :(

Chi Tan T'ang (Egg Drop Soup)

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
This soup is fantastic for any time you crave Egg Drop Soup, but don't have time to go to the store for ingredients. (We don't normally have green onion laying around the house so I don't use it every time) Yes, it is a "salty" soup, but if you like the salty soy sauce flavor, then it's perfect. I add soy sauce to my egg drop soup when I get it at Chinese restaurants all the time, but this has enough for me in the recipe. An extra chicken boullion cube or two makes this recipe divine. Cut back a bit on the vinegar if you don't like the taste, but I like it just like it is. :)

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
I played around a little with this recipe... so bear with me. The icing was really thick and strong so I added about 4 oz of cool whip. If I did it again, I might add more; I like fluffy icing. I also added chocolate chips to the cake mix, and then stored it in the refrigerator. This was a bad idea, since when we tried to cut the cake it was very thick... after it setlled to room temperature it wasn't so bad, though. The flavor of the batter was very very good, and had I added half a bag of chocolate chips instead of the whole bag, it might have tasted phenomenal. Next time I make it I'll either leave the chocolate chips out entirely, or I'll just add fewer. Since it's two layers, when they sank to the bottom of the pan, it wasn't a bad deal since you have a layer of cake, and then a layer of chocolate chips. ^^; I also used microwaved evaporated milk (be careful, it bubbles) instead of the boiling water. Made for a very thick, rich cake, but it may have been fluffier with just water. The flavor was very very good altogether, I'll definitely be using this recipe again, thanks!
