Mama's Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2013
Mmmm! Excellent!!! Made tonight as a dessert for Breaded Garlic Chicken, Sweet Baby Carrots and Mashed Potatoes on a frankly, freezing winter night. After making all of that I was pleasantly surprised to find out how easy this was. I used only half a cup of white sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a little cinnamon sprinkled on top. Tasted amazing! Everyone loved it. Five Starts!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
Great Pot Pie Recipe!!! Everyone loved it! My mother and my aunt were working all day and they were very happy to come home to this. My aunt who has never liked any kind of Pot Pie loved this. She took some home for my Uncle. Filled the kitchen with an amazing smell. I was happy at how easy this was to make as well. I followed the recipe exactly, except I had my dad cube the chicken because it looked gross raw. I'm 14, I can make my father do gross things. Because I'm a potato lover I added fresh cubed potatoes and boiled them with the other vegetables. Came out excellent. I made a homemade pie-crust and I pre-baked it thanks to a Quiche incident where I didn't pre-bake it like the recipe suggested and the bottom didn't cook through. It didn't burn from being baked twice so if you're making a homemade pie crust I recommend pre-baking the crust. The pot pies I usually order from restaurants or frozen brands are really soupy with a pastry topping but this one was nice and didn't spill everywhere. 5 Stars!

White Chocolate, Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
These were fantastic! I've been teaching myself how to cook and bake lately, and yesterday I had a craving for cookies. Spur of the moment cookie decision, I guess you could call it. I mixed the baking soda and baking powder like other reviewers suggested and had no problems at all. I haven't made cookies since I was little and my mother would do all of the hard work. Very easy to make! Only took half and hour! I was a little skeptical of the baking time since ten minutes seemed like it wouldn't cook throughly but I followed the recipe and wow! My brother and I haven't been able to keep our hands off these. I'm glad him and I are both athletes!

Chinese Firebolt

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
Sounds good. Think I'll make soon. However the name of the dragon Harry faced in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is called the Hungarian Horntail. The Chinese Fireball is the one Viktor Krum faced, and the Firebolt is the broomstick Sirius sent Harry in Prisinor of Azkaban.

Onion Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
Yum! It was delicious! I've never made a Quiche before, but I was looking for something to eat for dinner tonight besides the box of Kraft Mac and Cheese staring at me from my pantry. I made a very good choice. My mother and I ate half of it! Saving the rest for tomorrow. As other reviewers suggested, I added an another egg and because I was afraid it would be bland, I crumbled up some leftover bacon, and Spinach. I put the bacon on top of the onions, added the egg mixture and put the Spinach on top for a decorative effect. I used Swiss cheese and found it tasted plain. Maybe it's because I grew up on fancy cheese my father would buy from major cities in the U.S. Next time I will use Gruyere Cheese instead, because I will be making this again. I made my own crust because if you're going through all the trouble of making your own quiche/pie you should make your own crust. However I didn't pre-bake it as they recipe said so while the sides were cooked and tasty, as was the filling, the bottom didn't cook and was unedible. I'll regretfully take a star off for that. I will make again soon. :D

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
I'm usually very picky about my ratings. I don't just go around giving 5 stars so you know this recipe is a keeper! It was so moist, and sugary and yummy! Made one big loaf and a bunch of mini loafs. I'm a new baker and cook being only 14, but this was easy to make as well! I've handled some much harder recipes but whenever I bake it usually turns out okay at best. I had leftover Zucchini from Zucchini Cakes I made along with Crab Cakes for my Vegetarian Cousin at Thanksgiving. I hate throwing out food so I decided to look for a quick recipe. Because of the amount of Zucchini I had I doubled the recipe and though the batter looked imtimidating in size I'm glad I did! My family couldn't keep their hands off! Even my dad loved it! Not only has he steered clear of vegetables his entire life but he also hates sweets. However he ate more of this than anyone in the family!
