Grilled Salmon Steaks with Savory Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
I have to say that this recipe was amazing. I played around with the sauce a bit using a raspberry blush balsamic vinegar, but kept everything else the same. It came out perfect, and the vinegar was not over powering. I served it with plain brown rice and a spinach and orange slice salad. I read quite a few complaints in the review section, and would just like to say that I believe you have to have the ability to tweak and experiment with any recipe to tailor it towards your specific tastes. This recipe overall is magnificent, but may very well not be to everyone's liking. What makes it a great recipe is that it is VERY easily changed in some minor ways to make it likable to many. If it's not you idea of perfection the first time try changing the type of balsamic vinegar or add less. I personally found that a fruit blush vinegar balances the flavor much better.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
These cookies were absolutely fabulous! Followed the directions to the T. I do suggest using real vanilla extract, because it'll make the flavor just right. I also left the nuts out. My cookies were really big, so I ended up cooking them about 5 minutes longer then the suggested time. (I use light metal pans, not dark) I never left the stove, though, so none of them burnt. Definitely keep an eye out so you don't over cook. My husband's favorite cookies are chocolate chip, so these will definitely be a regular around my house. :)

Surprise Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I made this cake for my husband's birthday, and it turned out amazing. It was extremely moist. I even let it cook about 35-40 minutes, checking it every 5 minutes over 30. Also, I added a cup of coffee instead of the water, and used a different icing recipe. I used the half tsp of cayenne, and it is not noticeable at all except in the most complimentary way. In some gourmet stores you can buy a chili cocoa powder from South America. I plan on using this next time in place of the cocoa and omitting the cayenne. This will definitely become one of my staple cakes.
