Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
This soup was absolutely delicious! The only changes I made were: I left out the celery, I added a little more flour, and I added some half and half -- due to my soup not turning out very creamy.. I believe this was my fault though, considering I added more potatoes than the recipe called for, therefore I had to use more water to cover them. I made this to freeze and take for lunches! will definitely make again

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
I followed the recipe, only added some sweet BBQ sauce, a little bit of garlic salt, I added about 3/4 cup buttery crackers, and I did not add the entire packet of onion soup mix (i added about 3/4 of it). It turned out absolutely amazing! Best meatloaf I have ever had!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Just finished making these, and they turned out PERFECT! The only changes I made were adding less butter (watching my diet) I used about 1 stick of butter total. When rolling them up, instead of putting the butter on the dough first; I mixed the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon together and spread it on the dough. This worked out WONDERFUL. I ended up almost tripling the icing on accident (I didn't realize the recipe calls for 3 oz of cream cheese and accidentally used the whole 8 oz!) but it ended up being the perfect amount, we like to have tons of extra icing :) My dad says they are better than cinnabon. I will definitely be making these again!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
I used a devil's food cake mix for the cupcakes, and replaced the oil with applesauce. I used my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, only I left out the eggs, personally I think it tasted just as good as when I've eaten dough with the eggs, but better because it is more solid like store bought rather than more sticky like homemade. They turned out great. I did have to cook them for about 19 minutes for the cupcakes to cook all the way through, after freezing the cookie dough for about 4 hours they turned out perfect and the cookie dough didn't cook at all. I've had cupcakes like these from a bakery and I had no they were this easy to make!

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
I used 2% milk instead of evaporated milk, I'm assuming that's why I had to put A LOT more powdered sugar in order for the frosting to be thick enough to pipe onto cupcakes. It did turn out well, I thought it tasted just like a homemade version of store bought frosting. I'm only giving 4 stars because I thought it was good for how easy it was, but not amazing.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
These were so easy to make, especially compared to other tortilla recipes I have used, and they turned out great. I used shortening instead of lard, and i added about a tsp of sugar for extra flavor. I made 1/4 of this recipe because I was only preparing these for my boyfriend and I, it made 4 small tortillas, although next time I will just halve it and make larger tortillas. I will definitely be using this recipe again!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
I made cupcakes instead of regular cake, the first batch turned out perfect, they taste great with the sweet cream cheese/coffee frosting that i used. I think i may have done something wrong though because they didn't really taste as sweet as most cake, so i made the mistake of adding about 1/4 cup more sugar after the first batch, and every batch following overflowed and then sunk..I'm not sure if the sugar did it or if I did something wrong. Anyway the first batch was so moist and delicious, I will be trying these again.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
This is without a doubt the best pizza crust i have ever made, it turned out absolutely PERFECT! I mixed the dough in my electric mixer, which turned out much easier and better than if i had kneaded it. I cooked the dough for 5-10 minutes before adding the toppings, since i made a thicker crust. I did as another user suggested and I used about 1/3 of the dough to make breadsticks, they were also delicious. I seasoned the dough with parmesan cheese, basil and garlic. I will without a doubt be using this recipe for now on!!

Mocha Truffle Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
I have made these cookies multiple times, and they have always turned out great every time. They are so chocolatey, and the coffee just makes them so much better! The dough is always very easy to handle because it is so rich (instead of being so sticky and sticking all over everything like most cookie dough), the dough was so firm the most recent time I made them, that they did not flatten out in the oven, I ended up flattening out the second batch before putting them in the oven and they turned out wonderful. Next time I am going to try using my electric mixer though, for some reason i always end up mixing the dough by hand, and it takes so long to mix by hand when the dough is so firm! These are by far my favorite cookies, I will definitely be making these in the future.

Eclairs II

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
I used this recipe for my first attempt at eclairs, they turned out perfect! I used the "pastry cream" recipe (which was delicious) on this website instead for the filling because I didn't have any instant pudding. They were so soft on the inside, I actually thought that they weren't cooking all the way through because they were so soft. But I'm glad they were so soft because they were so delicious! I'll definitely be making these again!

Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
I used this for eclair filling (the eclairs II recipe on here), this was my first attempt at making eclairs, and they turned out SO good! the cream was the best part. I used vanilla extract instead of a vanilla bean, and i didn't strain it. I only used 5 egg yolks since some users said it turned out pretty eggy, and it turned out so creamy and delicious! I'll definitely be making this again

Snowballs II

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
These were SO easy, but incredibly delicious. My family ate them all in a day. I didn't add the candy canes, i didn't think they would really go with the recipe. You might want to double them, it makes a small batch.

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
this turned out pretty well! i changed some things until it tasted right to me. i didnt have canned crushed tomatoes so i used canned stewed tomatoes, and chopped them up before i boiled them with the chicken broth. I also used dried basil since i didnt have fresh. After the butter melted, the soup was kind of thin and tasted a little too bland. so added a little salt, and about a tablespoon of tomato paste. I let it boil for about 10 more minutes on medium heat to thicken it up. Some of the melted butter was floating to the top and almost looked like olive oil, so used a spoon to take some out (im watching my diet, and my idea of tomato soup doesn't look so good with a layer of butter on top!!) i ended up taking out about 2 tablespoons of butter (so if you dont like too much butter like me, dont waste the butter and only put in like 6 tablespoons instead of a whole stick) After this it tasted delicious! i made it with grilled cheese mmmmm

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2006
this is by far the best recipe i have EVER made! i added WAY more lime juice than it said, and i also added ALOT of cilantro (in my opinion, without the cilantro it was just plain) and i also made my own taco shells with an old recipe i had, so they turned out to be sort of like a chalupa shell from taco bell. makes this recipe 50x better!!!!!

Chinese Restaurant-Style Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
this recipe called for way too much chinese five spice in my opinion. My chicken came out tasting and smelling like liquorice! also after dipping it in just flour and nothing before so the flour actually STICKS to the chicken, it looked very..unpleasant.

Asian Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2005
This is a great recipe, that i have made 3 times in the past week!! i actually marinated the chicken in the dressing, and just made alot of extra to use for dressing. I also cut the chicken into bite size peices instead of shredding it. I poured the chicken and the marinade into a skillet after marinading it for 30 mins and cooking it uncovered over medium heat for about 25 mins or until the oil is extracted from the marinade and the chicken is a dark brown color (it looks like chicken from a chinese restaurant!). I left out the rice noodles and it still tasted great!
