Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2012
Amazing. Tasted better than I even expected. Does not taste homemade. I found it hard to scale down this recipe because the calculator gives you all measurements in pounds, even for a few people. But I guessed on the measurements an guess I got close because it was simply delicious.

Pie Crust III

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
This was flaky (brittle actually), and I meant to add the salt and sugar like others recommended. But I completely forgot the extra ingredients and as a result, the crust didn't have a good flavor on it's own. Thankfully the sweet strawberry filling I made covered that up. Next time I will add the salt and sugar and I bet it will not need filling to taste good.

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Maybe my pie plate was too big, but I didn't have enough filling. Also my filling remained liquid-y so I must have done something wrong. But it tasted wonderful!

Southwest White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
Well, I almost hate to review this recipe because though I was determine to make it, I discovered soon after that I didn't have all the ingredients. But I made it with what I had, and it was still terrific! I was out of cream of chicken soup, so I used cream of mushroom. I was out of onions! I added a can of tomatoes since I didn't have onion, even though that's no substitute. I used black beans. I was out of chili powder so I used taco seasoning instead. Still loved it!!

Best White Icing Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Excellent! I make the One Bowl Chocolate Cake III from this site all the time and decided to make my daughte's birthday cake with it so I needed an icing recipe. I tinted it pink so I wasn't worried about it being bright white, so I uses all butter and regular brown vanilla. It was excellent! Everyone was impressed with my pink 2-tier "from scratch" birthday cake!

Easy Shake and Bake Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
This was tasty and my husband really liked it. I added red chili pepper since he likes spicy food. One word of advice: dry the chicken a little bit before putting it in the bag, or you'll end up with a slimy dough that covers only part of the chicken...like I did. I used boneless breast tenderloins and they were overcooked, so I will shorten the cooking time a bit next time. I'm sure it's not too long for bone-in chicken though.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
I love brownies probably more than any food, and it's hard for me to give any brownie recipe less than 5 stars. But I must be honest and say that these were not as rich and chewey as I expected after reading the other reviews. They tasted more sugary than chocolatey to me. Mine were not very dark brown either. I would double the cocoa next time. Ok, I had to come back and revise my rating. These brownies were far better the next morning after they cooled. I did use only 1 cup of flour like others recommended since I don't like my brownies cakey. They were cakey and bland right out of the oven, but great once they cooled off!!!

Very Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
I usually make recipes as directed, but today I was specifically looking to find a chocolate cookie recipe to use some coconut I have had for a while. I didn't find what I was looking for but thought this one might work well to sub coconut for the chocolate chips, and boy was it a success!! If you love coconut, try substituting the 2 c chocolate chips for 3 c shredded coconut. Yummmmmmmmmmmmy. I'll try them as directed too when I can get some chocolate chips. Great recipe!!

Baked Spinach

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
This was better than I expected, because I don't really like spinach unless it is disguised. I mixed the flour and eggs with the spinach, and layered it with cheddar cheese. This made it right up my alley! Nice change to get in some greens :).

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Double Peanut Butter Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
Wonderful! "Creamy" is not usually an adjective I use for cookies, but that is what they were. Especially the next day. I fully intended to make them exactly according to the recipe, but I ran short of peanut butter. I had enough for the dough but not enough to spread between layers. So I just mixed the chocolate chips into the dough and put the dough on the pan by spoonfull, and they were terrific. I had natural peanut butter (no added ingredients like sugar) and they still turned out great.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
yum yum yum! These are great! I wanted more so I doubled the recipe, but 1 recipe of crumb topping was enough for all. I filled the muffin cups to the top and it made 12 giant muffins (6 per recipe). I would imagine it will make 8 for a single recipe if you don't quite fill the cups all the way. I wouldn't change any ingredient. YUM!

Whole Wheat Banana Strawberry Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
This recipe is wonderful!! My husband is hard to please and keeps raving about it. I made it late last night and we had it for breakfast this morning. I made it EXACTLY according to the recipe and wouldn't change a thing. My loaf pan must have been smaller than the one others used because some of the batter boiled over and I had to slip a metal pan under my glass loaf pan to catch it. I cooked it for the full time and it was brown on the top but it was a delicious crust that tasted buttery even though there was no butter in the recipe. I usually have to cook recipes about 20 minutes longer than the recipes called for though so maybe this one was just right for my oven. I've had the same issue with the last 3 ovens I've owned, so maybe it's our climate. Anyway, I would recommend not changing a thing but make sure your loaf pan isn't more than 2/3 full to avoid any spilling over. THIS WAS DELICIOUS!!

Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
My sister had her wisdom teeth removed Friday so I found this recipe while looking for something soft to make her to eat in addition to the mashed potatoes I had made. This was a HIT! She loved it and asked me for the recipe so she could send her husband to the store to buy the ingredients to make it again. I tasted it also and it was great! So simple too! One tip - double or triple the recipe. 1 recipe makes 2 small servings. 2 recipes makes 2 large servings. When I make it for my family of 4, I'll probably triple the recipe to give everyone enough to have 1 serving.

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
I always look for really quick chicken recipes, and I don't know why I've never come across this one before. This is the easiest chicken I've ever made that actually has flavor. I made this on a night that I went out to dinner with a friend, so that my husband would have something to eat. He is from India and loves food covered with spices, so I thought this would be right up his alley. It made the house smell so good and I was sorry that I wasn't going to eat it! I did taste it though, and it was wonderful. My husband is so picky since I'm American and he really really misses his mom's Indian cooking....which I don't cook much because it's time consuming and we are very busy. So it was exciting to find something that he really likes. Thanks for the great and simple recipe! Oh also, I don't have an iron skillet so I just heated up my t-fal pan really hot and it worked fine. I had to bake it for 25 minutes though to get it done in the middle, and it was soooo juicy! I doubled the cayenne pepper too since my husband thinks food tastes better the hotter it is :).

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
Ok, this was the fastest and easiest cake I have ever made. It was better the next day after it cooled. It seemed fluffy when it was hot but when it cooled, it became this dense, moist, delicious mouthwatering cake. I didn't even put icing on it. I made it in a bundt cake pan (cooked for 55 mins) and sprinkled a little bit of powdered sugar on top just for decoration. It took me about 10 minutes from start to get it in the oven. I made it exactly as specified - no variations at all. It didn't need anything else. I was expecting it to just be ok. But it was EXCELLENT! Update 10/18/09 - Ok, since my last review I've made this cake at least a dozen times. I keep all of the ingredients incase I hear that someone is coming, and it's a huge hit with guests. I have had some failure getting a nice bundt cake with this recipe because it's so extremely moist that the top sometimes falls off in the pan, but it's never bothered anyone. Today I made it in a 9x9 pan and it's nice and thick. It was wonderful according to this recipe, but for variation I've added a tsp of cinnamon and a big pinch of red chili powder. Makes a unique and wonderful flavor. The longer it sits the more moist it gets. Soooooo good.

New Orleans Barbeque Shrimp

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
Well, I was excited about this recipe since I'm from New Orleans and this is one of my favorite dishes. I haven't eaten it as Pascale Manales, so I cannot compare this to that version like some other reviewers did. This is very good, but still not as good as my mom's recipe for the same. So, not the best barbequed shrimp I've ever had when comparing them all, but regardless it is a very good meal. My favorite thing about it, which will get me to make it again many times, is the fact that it's FAST! I think I'll add more worcestershire next time, as that is one of my favorite flavors in this, and I could barely taste it in this recipe. My husband doesn't like shrimp though and he loved it! We had a good dinner.
