Apple, Carrot, Or Zucchini Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2004
The batter was VERY dry,i don't think their was enough wet stuff, i made it with apples and i seemed to have too much apples vs the batter so i had to make more....but it tastes wonderful. with some tweaking of the amounts i would give it more stars

Chilled Strawberry Soup

Reviewed: May 9, 2004
i made this for my dad because it seemed very similar to soup he would always get at Sunday brunch. I used splenda for the diabetics in the family (used a lot of more then 2 tablespoon!!!). We loved it, i will defiantly make it again

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: May 12, 2004
It had wonderful taste but i wanted a more spongy texture, i gave it the extra rising time and it still didn't seem to rise much . but for the amount of work it was very good.

Pumpkin Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
Pumpkin has a high water content which makes it puff up like a cake. I have found that if you place the canned pumpkin in cheese cloth or a paper towel and ring off some of the excess moister then the resulting texture will be more cookie like

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
I have been frustrated with carrot cakes in the past, they never quite taste as good as i remember carrot cake tasting in my head....this recipe far exceeded my carrot cake desires. I scaled the recipe down to 12 servings and baked in a 9X13 pan with no nuts (never did like them). The result was moist and delicious with delectable chunks of pineapple, plump raisins and a sweet cinnamon aroma. Now the only problem i face is how to keep from eating the whole thing myself

Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Love these cookies!....not exactly chewy, more melt in your mouth but delicious none the less. Used butter instead of shorting, i am a firm believer that cookies with shorting are just not worth the effort.

Asian Lettuce Wraps with Mustard Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Why too much sodium in the dressing, I had to squeeze several limes into it to even make it palatable enough to eat. I cooked up raw chicken breast for the recipe and i am sure the Tyson variety has added sodium solution making it even worse.

Ragu Bolognese

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Time consuming and worth every minute of it! The complexity of flavor is exciting in every bite full. Few small changes...De-glazed the pan with 1 cup white wine after the meat had cooked through, used tomato paste instead of sauce, added just a few strokes of fresh grated nutmeg to the finished sauce.

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Added a little extra acid to compensate for saltiness (i used lime juice but rice wine would work just as well). added some green onions because I had them around. I cooked on stove top and will defiantly do this one again, perhaps in a stir fry style with snow peas

Garlic and Leek Ditalini

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Used orzo instead of ditalini, this is a great side dish. Works with everything from halibut to duck

Homemade Marshmallows I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Always on the look out for candy recipes that work at my altitude. I made some big changes to recipe too ensure it didn't recrystallize. Added 1 cup light corn syrup to sugar mixture and an extra packet of gelatin. Added 1/4 tsp of vanilla after i pulled the sugar off the heat.

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
I have to admit this recipe is pretty tasty but its not getting all my stars for 2 reasons. 1) I cant stand it when recipes don't use the full unit size of ingredients for instance it called for 2 tbsp frozen spinach, now what do I do with the rest? This is the case for most of the filling ingredients. I now have left-over spinach, frozen corn, black beans, and a partial pepper 2)way too many steps for a weeknight dinner. I used egg roll wrappers and I boiled them before filling so that the flour was cooked. then i baked as other reviewers had suggested. I served it with a mixture of blue cheese dressing and salsa I will probably use all the left over ingredients to make the filling again and just cook it up quesidilla style because i really do like the flavor.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
I was skeptical that a lean cut like tenderloin would work for pulled pork but i was proven wrong. I never make pulled pork because a Boston butt is too much for the two of us being able to used a tenderloin is fantastic! The result was moist and with a fraction of the fat. The sauce i used was a little sweet so i am going to have to do some research on a more acidic sauce to balance out the sugar from the root beer.

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
really loved this! I used a tri-tip sirloin and added snow peas in to cook with the sauce. I thought the flavor was very good though i could have done with less cornstarch. The meat was tender and cooked quickly. a defiant repeat.

Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
yum yum yum. This is the best chicken recipe i have ever had off of this site! Don't have a grill so i just sauteed the chicken and i didn't worrie about wiping off all of the marinade. Added some minced lemongrass to the marinade since i had it around and let it sit over night.
