Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
I wasn't sure I had 4 cups of confectioner's sugar to begin with, and after reading the reviews that it can be too sweet I decided to add the sugar a cup at a time. A cup was all that I needed for a sweet, thick icing that still had a bit of a cheesy taste!

Apple, Carrot, Or Zucchini Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
I made a version of this (3 cups of apple, 1 cup of carrot) into cupcakes (I made 24, but some of them were pretty small) with cream cheese frosting and they were oh-so-good. The cupcakes were moist and not too sweet. I think I'd try adding a little vanilla next time though.

Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This soup is chunky and VERY filling. It may have been because I was a bit liberal with my vegetable measurements, but for me it was not soupy enough so I had to add a bit more broth. Don't worry too much if it doesn't thicken right away, the cheese helps thicken it!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
I make tilapia all the time, so when I saw this popular recipe, I had to see what the buzz is all about. This recipe is fast, easy, tasty and looks gorgeous on a bed of rice or pasta. There's also a lot of room to play around with the spices. I almost don't want to go back to the other ways I used to make tilapia!

Chocolate Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2006
I made these into cupcakes (comes out to about 24--remember to shorten the cooking time though) and they were super good! Only one person could tell there was zucchini in it (that's only because she got a piece of peel). I would definitely make this again!

Cinnamon Carrot Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
Despite this being the first time making the recipe, I took the liberty of making my alterations (changing the amount of sugar to 1/2 c. each, using whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour, using walnuts instead of pecans, adding 1/2 c. of raisins) and it turned out great :) When I just had the dry ingredients with the sugar and oil, it got really dry but the eggs and carrots add a LOT of moisture. I also added a bit of nutmeg, but I think I added too much... might try 1/4 tsp each of nutmeg and ginger next time...

Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
This recipe is really good but I can definitely see how people can find it too runny. To curb that I tend to dry the cucumber with paper towels after letting them drain, and I also use a lot less yogurt than the recipe calls for (about 1/2 cup)

Easy Shrimp Dinner

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2004
This recipe is so easy and surprisingly quick! I did change it a little but I'm sure it came out similar to how it was intended. I had chicken broth on hand so I didn't need to make it using water and chicken powder, I used a combination of half shrimp, half bay scallops and didn't have any snow peas so I used broccoflower instead. It was really good and saucy, perfect on a bed of rice.

Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2004
I used this recipe the first time I ever made pie, and it was so easy. I made three of these over Christmas last year and gave one away as a gift and had two at home, the second of the ones I had at home was a request by my mother for a dessert for Christmas dinner!

Tofu Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2004
My attempt at making these failed miserably. I was afraid that they wouldn't stick so I added an extra egg, and then they just wouldn't stay together in the frying pan so I baked them and they ended up tasting a bit too much like egg. I might try this recipe again just to see if I could fix my mistakes, but other than that I'm not its biggest fan.

German Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2004
So simple, yet so good. I used only one potato, cut down on the rest of the ingredients and made them sans baking powder (didn't have any on hand) and they still turned out great. I also didn't have any suitable topping so I had them with cream cheese and it was surprisingly good. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2004
The brownie recipe doubled very well for a 9x13 pan, but I changed the recipe slightly. I melted the butter in the microwave (quicker and less dishes) and I had to bake the brownies for 35 minutes before a toothpick came out clean (possibly because the recipe was doubled). I made the frosting without the honey and added milk to help with spreadability, though I'm sure the brownies would've still been good without it.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2004
Very easy to work with and very flaky, it was my first time making pies this Christmas and I used it for all three (all were apples, one as a gift, one for a party and one for the family dinner). If you don't have a pastry blender you can just take two knives and cut the fat in a criss-cross sort of motion.

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2004
I always make these cookies to bring to parties and they're gone the minute I step in the door. One of my friends even requests me to remember to make them whenever I'm invited to a party. I double up my cookie sheets to prevent burnt bottoms and they take about 10-12 minutes to bake. I also cut up milk chocolate into chunks whenever I'm out of chocolate chips and they're still awesome! I recently learnt the importance of the baking soda, I once made the cookies without it and they didn't spread out at all (they were still yummy though) Thanks for the recipe!
