Easy Microwave Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
I like this cake. It turns out well and is easily adaptable. I like it as a peanut butter cake, especially. I just exchange 2/3 of the butter for peanut butter. If I want to leave out the cocoa, I replace it with flour. This recipe works well for me.

Naan

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
This did not work well for me at all. The finished product wasn't naan. The flavor and texture were both slightly wrong for it to be naan. It was a very humid day, though, so I will chalk it up to that. I will try one more time when it isn't so humid.

Hillbilly Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
I like this pie, but do think it is too sweet. I've tinkered with adding less sugar and adding a little flour to help thicken it. I've also tried simply adding less sugar. Neither of those worked perfectly. I might try tinkering a little more, because I really do like it. I just wish it wasn't quite so sweet.///Update: on a side note, I had real pecan pie this summer (I live overseas), and this is not even a close substitute. I still like this pie, but can't compare it to pecan.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
I made cupcakes and this recipe is TOO moist. The cupcakes really tasted underbaked, and I made a point to overbake them. Maybe as a cake it works better.

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
The flavor was fine, but the consistency was too thin for me. I am willing to concede, however, that I used a brand of chocolate chips that is also not my favorite...it is the only kind I can get where I live.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
I agree with the people who don't see what the hype is. These were too cake-like for me and I only put in 2 1/4 cups of flour. That was still too much in my opinion. I also felt they didn't have much flavor other than a ton of chocolate. I do like them better baked for a shorter time than a longer time. Everyone's oven is different, though. For me, twelve minutes was about right.

Nutty Brownies

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
I love these. They are super easy and taste good, too. I half the recipe, cook them on a desert plate for 2.5 minutes, and have just enough brownies for two. I love not having leftovers around to tempt me.

Best Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
I've made this frosting several times now. When I take the time to beat the sugar and butter together until the sugar is dissolved, it is delicious. It takes a solid six minutes, or longer, though. I've also substituted half the butter for peanut butter and that has worked well for a peanut butter frosting.

Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
These taste really good, but I also came out with very flat cupcakes, so that was disappointing. I also had a hard time getting them to cook all the way through. They were either raw or slightly burned, even with the temperature turned down.

Cinnamon Syrup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
Went well with pumpkin pancakes. I only used 1 tablespoon of flour and the consistency of the syrup was perfect for my tastes. Note: I have also tried 1/2 tablespoon of flour, but that wasn't quite enough.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
Too dense for me, and I could taste the vinegar. For that matter, I could SMELL the vinegar with each bite, which was a bit of a turn off. I also think it needs more spices. Finally, the recipe made more than I was expecting, which means I have a ton left over for freezing.

Caramels

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
I didn't really like the texture or the flavor of the finished caramel.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
Worked for me. Good texture, nice flavor. I would add vanilla next time, and cut down on the sugar. (I know, it's fudge!)

Marian's Fudge

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
This recipe set REALLY fast once I started beating it. It stilled looked glossy to me, but I would recommend as soon as it starts to thicken you pour it into your pan. As far as taste and texture go, they weren't bad. Maybe if I had poured the fudge sooner the texture would have been improved. Overall, not bad, but not amazing either.

Caramel Frosting V

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
This frosting wouldn't whip up for me, either. Yes, you can force it to become frosting by adding LOTS of powdered sugar, but that makes it so sweet as to be over the top. I agree with the reviewer who said the directions seem to be missing steps/detail.

Basic British Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
So not my favorite. They were an odd texture and had a funny after taste that I attribute to the cream of tartar. I'll not even try this recipe again.

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I liked that these biscuits plumped up so well, but the taste of baking powder was TOO strong. If I make them again, I will half the baking powder and hope they are still fluffy. I will also roll them to 3/4 inch as suggested as they were so high they toppled when I rolled them one inch.

Easy No Bake Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
I'll stick with the more traditional no-bake cookies. The texture of these was too oatmeal-mushy. I also thought there was way to much sugar, and I had already decreased it by half a cup. Seriously, use the no-bake recipe - there is even a "no peanut butter" version for those of you who don't want peanut butter. If you do make this recipe, make sure you use instant pudding.

Peanut Butter Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
If I was rating just the cake, I would give it a three. Although the flavor is good, the packaged cake mix taste still comes through. It is also dry and doesn't hold together well. If I was rating just the frosting, I would give it a four. It tastes AMAZING, but I only needed two cups of powdered sugar and significantly more cream than called for...so much in fact that next time I will use milk in order to spare some fat calories. If I was rating it on what my colleagues said about it as they ate it, then I would have to give it a five. They really enjoyed it and ate it all. I will definitely make the frosting again, and the cake I may play with a little. When I figure out how to make it less dry and crumbly, it has a lot of potential.
