Yellow Cake Made from Scratch

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
Much better than the Wilton basic yellow cake recipe! The only changes I made, was I used baking soda as I was out of baking powder after a weeks worth of Wilton thud brick cakes, and then to counter the saltiness of the baking soda, I added about 1/4 more sugar to the mix and baked in a water bath in the oven at 325 in convection mode. What I got was the most spectacularly soft and moist and fluffy cake! It was amazing! For those who are getting dense cakes or cornbread like cakes, beat your shortening or butter and eggs more to make it lighter and fluffier and presift your flour. It makes a ton of difference. You really can't do wrong with this cake recipe. If it's not turning out, it's operator error.

Cannoli

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
Great recipe! We used this recipe to teach a cooking class to our homeschooled children, and it turned out beautifully! The tiny thing we changed, was since we're not a fan on citron, was to just grate some lemon zest and use that....the tinest amount really went far and provided a beautiful filling. For those who said it's too wet, make sure you are using whole milk ricotta and not that part skim junk. It makes a difference. We piped the filling in and then sprinkled mini chocolate chips on the end and gave a hit with powder sugar and they were perfect! A+ assignment and easy enough a 10 yr old can make (with help frying the shells of course).

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
I love this recipe! It's never failed me! I use this cheesecake recipe as the base for my turtle cheesecake and it's the best! I just substitute oreo crumbs for the graham crackers and swirl melted chocolate through the cheesecake batter and top with caramel, melted chocolate, and pecans. The water bath is super important to prevent cracking, as is keeping the door completely closed for the full time. We found that the flavor actually tastes better if we allow it to sit in the fridge for a minimum of 2 days. It helps coease everything together flavorwise. You can really take some broad liberations with the recipe to achieve anything from chocolate cheesecake, raspberry swirl or whatever. It holds up well!

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
The first time I followed to the letter and was a bit blah about the whole thing, but then I put my culinary skills to work and it turned out great with a few minor changes. I sauted the onions and celery together, then added 2T of butter, added the mushrooms, peas, AND the tuna (water and all) and allowed it to simmer. I took out the garlic clove, and went with garlic powder for a stronger, oomph of garlic flavor that I missed the first time around. The final change was in the milk/flour mix. I added more butter than called for, another shot of garlic powder, salt, pepper, and extra flour to make it thicker than one would want, because I knew mixing it in with the extra liquid from throwing the tuna water in, would offset. It came out PERFECT! Creamy, delicious, and absolutely a new recipe for the book!

Crab Rangoon III

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
I followed the advice of some of the other reviewers and omitted the water chestnuts, and doubled the cream cheese and added green onion and what I got was an awesome crab rangoon that was still plenty crabalicious! I did a slightly more than 2x the recipe(2.5 I guess) and I came out with enough to feed 25 people a couple, so if you are wanting enough for a large family, go easy on this one. It makes a TON!

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
The recipe as written was bland, so we bunched it up a bit. First, we cooked the ground pork in a combo of garlic, salt, ginger, and chinese 5 spice. Then when the pork was almost cooked, we tossed in the cabbage and carrots, and stiry fried until the flavors were well intergraded and the cabbage translucent. Then we assembled the eggrolls sans the flour paste, using water on our fingertips instead to seal the eggrolls and they came out perfect. I wanted to add some salad shrimp to give it a little more flavor, but we'll save that for the next time. It's a good "starter" recipe to jump off from.

Addictive Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
This recipe was good, but I think, the next time I make it, I plan on adding a few changes. The first being, don't make the sauce prior to cooking the chicken if you are making a large batch, because it tends to thicken too much being held on the warming burner. With a family of 8 who eat like a family of 16, we tripled the recipe and came out with no leftovers, but the length of time between cooked chicken and sauce being added was just too great. My second thing, would be to add a little red pepper flakes or perhaps some dried serachi chilis to give it the punch of heat I was desperately wanting it to have, and didn't. Overall, it was a great recipe and the kids enjoyed it and we will be making this one again!
