Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
It was alright, but the topping was very dry and almost powdery. I will try adding more butter or use less flour next time.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
I really don't like this recipe. The cookies turned out cake-like and didn't have much flavour. They just weren't good at all. I'm positive I did everything correctly, but they just didn't turn out. I won't bother making modifications to this recipe- I'll just use a whole different one. I don't recommend wasting ingredients on it.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I absolutely love this recipe. I make it very often- for myself and also due to numerous requests for that 'amazing orange chicken'. I usually use about a tbs. more orange juice (squeezed from the oranges I got the zest from) and I put about 3 tbs. more brown sugar in the sauce after I remove some for the marination. It makes it a little less overbearing. If you're in a hurry you can skip the marination and it still turns out really good, but it is worth the wait to have the chicken get that great orange flavour. I highly recommend this recipe!
