Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2006
These doughnuts were great... not exactly like KK, I wouldn't say, but not necessarily not just as good! I only made half a batch, and since I didnt have a doughnut cutter I just made holes... about 40 I would say. I made the full amount of glaze (pretty watered down, which was perfect) and it was barely enough for all my doughnut holes. A few people recommened more sugar--I dont think this would be necessary unless you are not putting the glaze on--without the glaze the doughnuts are a bit yeast-y, but the glaze more than hides that subtle flavor. DELICIOUS!

Texas Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
I think this recipe turns out great... if you use a bit less chili powder than it calls for. I use about 1/8 cup. I also sometimes leave out the onion and bell pepper and I havent noticed a difference either way. Goes great with Chicken Enchiladas I from this site!

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
This recipe is fantastic (but don't add water)! However, if I am going to make a meal from scratch, I always figure I should go all out! I love this recipe with Texas Enchilada Sauce, also from this site, and with jack cheese rather than chedder. Also, I pan fry corn tortillas for about 20 seconds rather than using flour tortillas--I think flour tortillas get a bit soggy under the sauce.

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
This recipe was FANTASTIC. I only made a few slight modifications: butter instead of margerine, about 1.5 cups of smashed banana, and no pecans. I also doubled the amount of cinnamon and sugar--I put it between two layers of batter as suggested, then used a butter knife to swirl it around. Also, the recipe made only 1 large loaf for me--but maybe I have big loaf pans.

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
This recipe was great. I tried out outsmart the directions the first time and pour tomato sauce over the top before baking, but it just made the breading soggy. The second time I followed exactly and it was fantastic! Thanks :)

Pizza Crust I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
I use this recipe all the time for pizza crust--sometimes I sub some wheat flour for white, I often use garlic olive oil, and/or put italian seasoning and garlic powder in the dough. Every time it has turned out great. Also, I recommend baking the crust for 2-5 mins before adding sauce and toppings, this prevents the dough from being soggy or not fully cooking.

Eggplant Parmigiana Caponata

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
I would probably give this more like a 3.5 stars... we liked the flavors, and with a few modifications it could be a 5. The "fixes" I made would equate to the following modifications on the original recipe. First, I did not use any anchovies or capers. I used only about 2 tbs each of balsamic and red wine vinegar, and about 2 tbs brown sugar (the original recipe made it WAY too sweet!). Also, I would drain the tomatoes (I used diced instead of stewed) and would not saturate the eggplant with oil--my husband and I both thought it was way too oily and liquidy. Definitely has potential though--a good start!

Onion Rings

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
These were really good if you like a thickly breaded onion ring. I used a pancake mix that required eggs and water, but I substitued the water for beer. I also added some spices; garlic salt, oregano, whatever you have... Also, I used enough beer to make the batter slighly thinner than pancake mix would be--but still thick enough to stick to the onions. Oh, and either dry the onions or put some cornstarch or flour on them before battering.

Butternut Squash and Spicy Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
This recipe was amazing! I did everything exactly as the recipe called for, except that I used chicken boullion instead of broth, and no cream. I used chicken italian sausage, which was great! I was really unsure as I have never cooked with butternut squash before, but it turned out fantastic--even my husband was pleasantly surprised! Oh, and make sure you bake the seeds, just like pumpkin seeds only better!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
These cookies were super yummy! I changed a few things though--so I won't give them a 5. I used 1/2 shortning, 1/2 butter, added about a tsp of vanilla, added an extra cup of oats, and only used 1 cup of chocolate chips. I thought they were plenty chocolate-y and had the perfect oat-y chewyness after 10 mins in the oven :)

Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
Perfect base recipe; Add whatever you like to dress it up! I followed the directions exactly--though the first time i used it I "flattened" my beer by microwaving it for a minute. I'm not sure that it would make a difference if you used a new beer. I used this for hot pockets, and they were great!

Kickin' Collard Greens

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
SO good. I love this recipe for collard greens--I also use it for brussel sprouts, just cut them in half and cook in the same way (though not for as long). I sometimes add extra hot sauce in addition to the pepper flakes because I like it HOT!
