Bar-B-Que Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
This is a very tasty BBQ sauce! It's mild, but you could easily kick the heat up or down with more or less hot sauce. I had to make a few changes to the recipe because I didn't have everything: 1 small fresh garlic clove instead of the garlic powder, 1 tablespoon prepared mustard for the mustard powder, and rice vinegar instead of cider vinegar. I also added a dash of crushed red pepper flakes and some onion powder. I'll definitely be making this again!

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
I made this for dinner last night not realizing my boyfriend hates tuna noodle casserole. He cringed when I told him what I'd made for dinner. That being said, he ate it, and even went as far as to say it was the best tuna noodle casserole he'd every had. He really loved the topping, but he's still not a fan. I personally enjoyed it. I thought the cheese and the french fried onions were a fun and tasty addition. I won't be making this for my boyfriend and I again, but I'm definitely going to make it for my mom and I at some point. I did add about a half-can of milk, as other users suggested, and I used No Yolk noodles because that's what I had on hand. This also reheats in the microwave quite nicely.

Salmon in Lemon-Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
The only reason this doesn't get five stars is because there's WAY too much butter. I used 2 tablespoons to saute the garlic (I didn't have shallots on hand), and that was it. I seasoned the fish as described, but my boyfriend and I decided to grill it instead of cooking it in the oven. I also used chicken broth instead of white wine because I live in a dry county. It was creamy, flavorful, and will definitely become a staple in our recipe box. Yum!

Cream Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
This cake is very tasty and nice and moist. My only real complaint is how crumbly it is. I doubled the recipe and cut each cake in half... Or attempted to at least! I was able to piece it back together with icing, and since I'm covering it with fondant it won't look too horrible (I hope), but I have to recommend against using this to make a multi-layered cake. Unless you like spongy puzzles.

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
Following the directions of other reviewers, I used 1 cup of butter instead of 1/2 cup each of butter and shortening. I think my boyfriend's reaction sums it up pretty well... "The cake is good, but this icing is AMAZING!" This icing will harden slightly after a couple of hours. I actually found this very handy for transport, and the inside of the icing stayed nice and moist. Very tasty.

Teriyaki Tenderloin

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
I'll confess that I haven't actually tried this recipe with a pork tenderloin yet... I have however made it with chicken and salmon, and LOVED it. I added 1 clove crushed garlic to it for a little extra flavor and wow! So good and so easy. My boyfriend likes sauce to put on his rice, so I usually take the base marinade recipe and add an additional 1/4 cup sugar, bring it to a boil over medium heat on the stove. Let it boil for several minutes stirring constantly until it reaches the desired thickness. Yum, yum, yum!

Scott's Buffalo Wing Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
First let me admit that I'm a total wuss when it comes to spicy things. I was a bit hesitant about making buffalo wings at all, but my boyfriend loves them, so I decided to try and find something I could easily make less spicy for me. The other reviewers are correct. This sauce is pretty mild. As-is, I could happily eat it. Since my boyfriend likes spicier things, we divided the sauce in half and added more hot sauce to his and more honey to mine. It turned out great (both his and mine) and we'll definitely be making boneless buffalo wings again in the near future.

Unbelievable Fish Batter

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
This was super easy and looked absolutely amazing - Just like something from a restaurant. My only criticism is that it lacks flavor. I added one clove of freshly ground garlic and approximately 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, just to kick it up a notch. My boyfriend and I also made this with salmon fillets cut into strips rather than the standard whitefish normally used for frying. It was a super tasty alternative to the classic, and I highly recommend trying it. Along with this recipe, of course!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
I made this for a family get together and it was a huge hit. I put it on to cook in my crock pot before I went to work, and by the time I got home my whole apartment smelled like a delicious meaty heaven. Super, super wonderful.

Easy Clotted Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
Definitely not clotted cream, it tastes more like whipped cream than anything. It was tasty, but it might be closer if the sugar was omitted. This is definitely easy to make and like I said, tasty, so it's definitely worth giving it a shot. It has a nice tangy flavor from the sour cream that you won't get from standard whipped cream.

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
I made these with dried apricots cut into small pieces instead of raisins or currants. The results were AMAZING. My mom and I ate a whole plate of these, and I ended up having to make more for the tea party they were supposed to be for. Sweet, but not too sweet, perfect with a little melted butter or clotted cream. I highly recommend this recipe to everyone.

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
My boyfriend and I made this the other night, and ate all of it in one sitting. It did not taste like the cheap Chinese take-out we had hoped to emulate, but it was very very good anyway. We did make a couple of changes to the original recipe though. First we omitted the onion and green pepper, just per our personal tastes, I used fewer sesame seeds as well, maybe 1/4 cup total. We also added about 1 teaspoon of freshly ground ginger to the sauce at the end. As other reviewers have said, DEFINITELY increase the sauce amount, as the chicken soaks up a lot. Others have said to triple it, and I agree, quadruple it if you'd like extra to serve over rice.

Chewy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
These were pretty darn tastey. I added about 1 tablespoon of cinnamon to mine to make them into snickerdoodles, then dusted them with cinnamon and sugar. They were the first to go when I brought them in to work.

Meringue Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
These are super cute. I found that if you make a little hole in the bottom of the caps, you can fill them with chocolate for an extra little surprise. For super realistic mushrooms, paint the bottom of the cap with chocolate, add the stem, then use a toothpick to make the 'gills' going out from around the base. Everyone thought these were real mushrooms.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
I've made these several times now and taken them to work. They are always a huge hit. Once set in the break room, they never last more than 4 hours (and I even make a double batch!). I don't have a mini-muffin pan, so I just make 40ish small balls and bake them on an ungreased cookie sheet. When I pull them out of the oven, I press the peanut butter cups into them and let them cool. They also are great with peanut butter kisses.

Chocolate Mousse II

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
This mousse is definately easy, and does taste good, but the texture is more like brownie mix than actual mousse.

Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2005
Definately tastey cookies. I had to cook mine for 8 minutes, and they still turned out very soft and chewy (just the way I like them). I suggest using 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips instead of 2, but that's purely personal choice. Make sure you let them cool for at least 10 minutes before trying to remove them from your cookie sheet. I will absolutely be using this recipe again!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2005
Very easy to make, with soft, chewy results. I made slightly larger cookies, ending up with 35, so they took a little longer to bake, about 12 minutes. I took these to work and within 4 hours, they were nearly gone, and everyone went on about how fantastic they were. I'll definately be making these again.
