Awesome Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
Good starting recipe. Some changes are a must though. Sounds like reducing the oil and adding apple-sauce works well. For my muffins, I reduced the oil to 3/4cup and added a little milk to replace the liquid. I reduced the amount of eggs to 2, instead of 4. I also added only 1 tsp of baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, and 3 tsp baking powder. Don't forget to add vanilla extract (approx. 1-2tsp), this will add flavor and make your muffins appear to be sweeter than they actually are. If you are a sweet tooth, definately add more sugar or more raisins.

Japanese Okonomiyaki

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2006
This is the same way I make it, except I leave out the pickled ginger. The bacon can also be substitued for other meats, I have found ham and shrimp work (but bacon is my fav). You can also add some finely chopped up leek, which really adds to the traditional flavor. I serve it with Okonomiyaki sauce (brown sauce) and Japanese Mayo (it's like american mayo without sugar, so you can substitute regular mayo no problem)

Great recipe! The filling is nice and sweet (naturally). The pastry is also very good! I did add a little coconut and vanilla to the boiling raisins, and they turned out great! Thank you!

Super Duper Oatmeal

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2005
So yummy! I used a frozen berry mix(blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries) the first time I made this, the second I threw in strawberries and bananas. A little vanilla helps the flavor.

Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2004
Great recipe! I added a little vanilla. I don't know if this improved the taste, because this was my first time making this, so I can't compare. But it definately won't be my last time making this!!!!

Wonderful recipe, although I wouldn't go as far to eat it for breakfast (it's not quite that healthy), but definately an easy snack. My mother eats these like there is no tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe!!!

Gyoza

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2004
Yum, Yum. I learned a similar recipe in my Japanese class in high school. All the differences were that we used a half and half mixture of water and corn starch to seal the gyoza. Also instead of water when cooking the gyoza you can use a watered down chicken or beef broth instead of just plain water, it gives the dumplings more flavor. Also sesame oil is MUCH MUCH more tasty (and authentic) then vegtable oil, when cooking the gyoza. And one last thing, I never add an egg, I find it gives a strange unwelcome texture. It might hold the mixture together better, but it's really up to you. Oh and as well, ginger is a must, add one or two tablespoons (to your taste) to the cabbage mixture, as well as a tablespoon of sake (japanese rice wine), and then cook as directed. The onion should also be green, or you could substitute leeks. It is more authentic to use round wrappers, and pleat them when putting the dumplings together, but it is allot of work, (considering it's just for looks) and they taste the same as the square.

Raspberry Sour Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2004
Really really good muffins, and also one of the most healthy recipes I have tried. However because there is absolutely no butter in this recipe, the muffins really stick even to the paper baking cups. Next time I might just grease the muffin cups. I also added a little bit of vanilla as my only change to the recipe.

Tofu Fudge Mocha Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2004
Good recipe, not all that healthy though with the amount of sugar, oil and cocoa called for (even if it isn't refined). I also put mine in an 8x8 pan for 40 mins - perfect!! If you let it cool for a little bit and then put it in the freezer for a little while, it makes the cutting much easier.

Cottage Dill Bread

Reviewed: May 2, 2004
Awesome bread!!! I found this recipe because I needed to use up some cottage cheese. I don't know why eveyone is saying that this is a "half-risen loaf of bread", because mine rose so much I had to poke it down a little! I used allot less yeast, 2 tsp (which is what my bread maker usually calls for, so I went with the usual trend). Also to have yeast rise your bread, you must keep the liquids that you add a little on the warm side; hence, do not put in refridgerater temperature cottage cheese - warm it up in the microwave a little. I hope this helps those a little who can't get their bread to rise.

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2004
WOW! Awesome recipe! Don't leave the aioli out, it really makes the sandwich! I also cooked my squash in the oven for a little bit, and it cooked as fast as my other veggies when I threw them on the BBQ.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2004
This is definately a top-notch recipe! I have made it more than once, and my family loves them! Yes, there are some modifications that I do make, however. DO NOT ADD THE WATER!!! And I have also found that if you add tomato paste (one of the smallest can's you can find of it, I believe 4 oz? because it is much more concentrated than the sauce) your filling will be much thicker, and you won't have to boil it down as much.
