Baked Flan

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Made this for my brother's birthday and he not only had two enormous pieces, he ate it for breakfast the following day, and then again for dessert. The top browned quicker than I liked, so I took it out before it was completely set and let it continue cooking in the water bath. The texture was perfect. A tip about the sugar, though--make sure there aren't lumps before you start cooking it! I had a few lumps left when I baked it. It still came out well, but if you're a perfectionist be warned that lumps don't melt! And don't be worried that it will stick to the pan. Mine came right out with just a slap on the bottom, no breaking or sticking.

No Bake Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
LOVE these. I've been making them for years out of an old cookbook I've had forever, but I managed to lose it so I was ecstatic to find it replicated online. Thank you!

Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
I forgot this was on the stove and managed to cook the yolks and nearly burn the chocolate, and it was STILL delicious (after a bit of straining, of course--yuck cooked yolk bits!). I can't think of a more decadent dessert than this mousse topped with fresh whipped cream and some shaved chocolate.

Ghirardelli® Dark Chocolate Truffles

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
I rolled these in toasted coconut, chopped hazelnuts, cocoa powder, and sprinkles, and they were gone so quickly I barely got a taste. DELICIOUS, and intensely easy. Thank you!!

Quick Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Used a bit extra olive oil and six leaves of fresh basil instead of the dried--this is a gorgeously easy and delicious sauce. My go-to recipe!

Curry Chipotle Satay

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
Made this for my boyfriend's birthday since he ALWAYS orders beef satay at thai restaurants, and he practically got down on the floor and kissed my feet. may i just remind you to SOAK THE SKEWERS, though!! this step CANNOT be skipped or even done halfway.. i forgot to until i was ready to broil everything, so even though i soaked for a minute, most of my skewers caught on fire. apparently the most delicious thing i've ever cooked, regardless of skewer fires, though!

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2014
I made a 1/4 recipe and baked in two ramekins, added extra vanilla as reviewers suggested, and because I used frozen blueberries I just made a blueberry layer instead of mixing them in and turning the batter colors. I also didn't have nuts, so I just made a bit of streusel topping instead. It may seem like I made too many changes to accurately rate the original recipe, but the five stars were for the cake itself. It was light, sweet, extremely moist, and would make a good base for an apple cake or any other fruited coffee cake. Thanks very much!

Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2005
everyone's favorite.. the cake i made was simply AWFUL, and this frosting was so good it almost saved it. the second time i made this i actually used just butter, as i forgot to get shortening, and it made it very rich, but still delicious. this has been my best allrecipe find so far..thank you!

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2005
I adapted this recipe for Quorn(TM) "Naked Cutlets", and the result was DELICIOUS. As a vegetarian, I can't say it's comparable to chicken, but my boyfriend said it's nearly as good. The only change necessary was cooking time. This is an easy, easy recipe and the result is fantastic. Thanks very much!

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
i'm a vegetarian but for my meat-eating boyfriend's birthday i agreed to cook him meat, which i've never done before. this recipe was SO EASY and he said it was the best beef stroganoff he'd ever had. i did omit the wine (we're not wine drinkers and it seemed wasteful to buy a bottle for such a small amount) but it apparently didn't detract from the flavor. other than that, i also just used a regular yellow onion instead of the green ones, and then served it over buttered egg noodles. VERY big hit. thanks for helping me make his birthday special =)

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
Adorable, easy, and fun for kids and me ;) I also made some with toasted coconut (425 and WATCH IT CAREFULLY!!) and peanut-butter melting candies, so they not only were brown and lifelike, but SO GOOD. Thanks for the idea!!
