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.

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!

Rosemary Potatoes with Roasted Heads of Garlic

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
I meant to take a picture, but these smelled so wonderful cooking that we dove in as soon as they were out of the oven. I used dried rosemary because that's what I had on hand, and I halved the recipe since there were just two of us. I regret not making the full recipe because they were that good. I would recommend tossing the potatoes in the olive oil prior to dotting with butter and drizzling with white wine. That way you don't have any potatoes get dried out while roasting.

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.

Chicken Taco Filling

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
I think this is a great base recipe. I added a can of salsa verde, cayenne pepper, ancho chile powder, and garlic to give it something extra. I thought the recipe was really good as is, but my boyfriend and I like a little more oompf. Definitely give it a try! The chicken turned out so juicy and tender and was easy to shred after just 3 hours on high. We'll be having this again soon.

Cinco de Chili Chocolate Cupcakes with Chili Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
Easy and delicious! I'm diabetic so I made a couple changes to suit my diet needs, using a no-sugar-added cake mix (Pilsbury brand) and cutting the confections sugar in the icing in half. They're still fantastic and you'd never know they were lower sugar. That being said, I imagine adding the full 4 cups of confectioner's sugar would make the icing even better (it was darn good with half!). I did think the heat was a little mild and added just a bit more ancho and cayenne to the mix. I don't think I'm brave enough to add chopped bits of pepper though. Definitely making these again, and definitely going to go eat another right now!

Pan Pierogies

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
This is pretty good! I used real potatoes (leftover mashed, seasoned with onion powder), added cheese directly to the potatoes, and cut the serving size down to 2. The butter was already in the potatoes, so no need to add more. I used two single-serving sized souffle cups sprayed with non-stick spray and carefully layered pieces of lasagna noodles with my cheesy potatoes. I topped it with some more cheese and bacon bits. Sooo tasty!

Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
The flavor of these is great, not too sweet, which is a lovely match for the sweet pie filling. My only complaint is the vanilla wafer got a bit soggy. Still taste good, though! This recipe will easily make 2 dozen, not 1, and I did have to cook my cakes a few minutes longer to get them to set. The middles sank when I pulled them out, but it provides a nice space for the filling. I didn't have much trouble getting the wrappers off once they cooled like some did, probably because I waited until they were completely cool before trying. Give these a try!

Fabulous French Loaves

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Not too difficult, very tasty. I ended up making three loaves because I wanted them to be a little skinnier for subs. The third loaf I spread butter and olive oil with herbs and garlic before I rolled the loaf. It turned out fantastic. The leftover plain bread made excellent French toast a couple days later.

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
I used 3 large bananas (as other reviewers suggested), and slightly less sour cream because I didn't have quite enough. I also used brown sugar instead of white (again, per suggestion). My bread came out moist, delicious, and lovely. I cooked it in 4 mini-loaf pans for about 35 minutes, putting aluminum foil over the tops after 25 minutes. Definitely staying in my recipe box and next time I have over-ripe bananas this is what's happening to them.

Grilled Lamb with Brown Sugar Glaze

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
Second time I've made this, both times met with outstanding success. I didn't have any tarragon on hand either time so I cut back the ginger and cinnamon and used Chinese Five Spice instead. I suspect the star anise flavoring gave it a different feel, but it was sooo good! Soak your lamb in milk for at least an hour before applying the rub, it helps remove any 'sheepy' flavor.

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!

Thai Chicken Bites With Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
I made this as a meal and served it with rice. It turned out quite nice, both in appearance and in flavor. It's definitely staying in the recipe box as something to have again.

Low-Cal Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
We really enjoyed this. I used the soy sauce mixture as a marinade and let it marinate for 4 or 5 hours before baking it in the oven. It was delicious.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2012
I have a new go-to pizza crust recipe. Crusty on the outside but soft and chewy inside. Good flavor, easy to work with, and baked up quickly and evenly.

Quick Chinese-Style Vermicelli (Rice Noodles)

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
This is a good base recipe. It's fine as-is, just a bit boring, but it's super easy to jazz up. I like to add slices of onion, red bell pepper, and broccoli. Like other reviewers have suggested, I fry it in a mix of vegetable and sesame oils for a little extra flavor. It's perfect along side Asian-seasoned chicken.

Feta and Bacon Stuffed Chicken with Onion Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
First I would like to make the disclaimer that I did make a few changes in this recipe due to personal taste. The chicken: I used panko breadcrumbs instead of regular (for more texture) and added about 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning to them for flavor. My boyfriend and I decided to cut a bit of fat and skipped the frying of the chicken, instead baking it in the oven completely. I felt the mashed potatoes were a bit dry so I added 2-3 tablespoons of milk. With these changes, I will DEFINITELY make this again. I think even made as-is the recipe would still be five star, though maybe only four for the potatoes.

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.

Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
We really loved this, but I must say, it's an Indian curry, not a South American anything. It did have a bit of a kick to it, so if you can't handle heat, cut back on the cayenne pepper. Serving it with rice really tamed it down. I also thought it served more than 4. We cut the chicken into 1 inch chunks and then divided it into 6 servings and found it to be very filling (with rice). Next time I think I will try using regular coconut milk to get a bit more coconut flavor, and maybe topping it with toasted coconut flakes. And there will definitely be a next time. This was delicious and easy!
