Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
Trick is not to overbake these rolls to get them nice and soft. Overbaking will dry them out. Very delish indeed. Made pizza rolls using the same dough.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
This recipe really does yield soft fluffy pancakes(even when they're cold). My daughter loves it everytime I make them. I added a bit of vanilla essence to give it more flavor. Will be using this recipe and this recipe only!

Lemon Cupcakes

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
This recipe is definitely delicious and easy to make. I used a pancake mix (here in Japan they work pretty much like self-rising flour but with added sugar so I didn't have to use baking powder), Lessen the sugar to just 1 1/4 cups. I got a hint to make this cake moister by scalding the milk and pouring it last (This idea came from the Extreme Chocolate Cake recipe that called for boil water in the recipe) This really made the cupcakes moister and softer. Try it! And thanks for sharing the recipe ;)

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
This recipe does yield a VERY VERY MOIST cake! And the cake is perfect for making layer cakes; which I made for a graduation party last week. I did lessen the sugar to 1 1/2 cups.Use a very good quality cocoa powder for best results because the cocoa powder you use really does determine how chocolaty this cake will become.My favorite recipe for a super moist cake and I will definitely make more of this in the future! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Simple Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
This is my first time making taco soup. I like how this recipe is so quick, easy and delicious to make. The ingredients are simple and easy to get. I did omit the pinto beans and used black beans instead. Didn't have ranch dressing mix so i just added dry parsley and garlic powder. Also fried the beef with onion and garlic and added a bit of chili beans mix. Will make this again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Seven Minute Frosting II

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
good and easy to follow recipe. i read that many complained they had sugar granules not fully dissolved when making this frosting. my suggestion would be that, try and use fine granulated sugar. if you don't have any, just pulse some regular granulated sugar in your blender. after adding all the ingredients in a bowl, put over double boiler, let the water boil first and then lower the heat. when you put your bowl over make sure the water ISN'T ACTUALLY BOILING. you'll cook your egg whites if you do this. just make sure there are tiny bubbles at the bottom of your pan. you just need the steam to heat the eggs. now, instead of going straight with the mixer, USE A HAND WHISK FIRST and stir. This will make sure that your sugar is fully dissolved. After the sugar has dissolved, then use the HAND MIXER, and whisk at full speed for about 3-4mins. I took my bowl off the boiler after that and continued whisking until you get that nice frothy consistency and lastly add the vanilla essence. Hope that helps!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
wow! was this an amazing dish or what! Love the flavor and the simplicity of the recipe. followed other reviewers suggestion and reduced the butter by half, cooked with foil on top for 40 mins, later up the oven temp to 250deg C and baked for another 20-30 minutes. I used boneless chicken thighs and they were soooo soft and tender. What I did with the remaining juice was that I added some heavy cream and thicken it with a bit of flour. Dip the chicken in it and absolutely YUM! Oh, and I used Dijon Mustard here. Will make this again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Fortune Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
I guess this recipe is pretty much covers the basics of a fortune cookie recipe. but what i did is i added 1/4 tsp almond extract, 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch and 1 1/2 tbsp veg oil (you can use melted butter here). The batter will turn out rather sticky and just slightly runny. I cut out a circle on a milk carton box and slather the batter on top of the circle ,scraping the remaining batter off the circle using an offset spatula to get even sized cookies. I also found out that to get the middle to puff nicely, you shouldn't pinch the circles together, instead just lightly hold both ends of the folded circle and place at the rim of a bowl or a spatula.

Whoopie Pies VIII

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
I've never made whoopie pies before so i have nothing to compare it to. But judging from other people's reviews and Mr.Wiki I pretty much managed to figure what these would turn out like. They were good, I did lessen the sugar to 3/4 cup (I half the original amount)because some said it was really sweet. I also added cinnamon and all spice for extra umph (I was a bit sick of the plain chocolate taste). The consistency was thick enough to be piped, so that you'll get a more even shape ( I figured that out half way baking 'em - duhh!) Didn't make the filling, used peanut butter buttercream instead and they became super-super good! Will make them again! :)

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
Great Recipe! I've made tonnes of these vegan kinds and they never turn out good. This is by far the best vegan chocolate cupcake I've ever had. I did up the cocoa powder to give the cake a more chocolaty taste to it. And I sub the water with milk (cause I'm not a vegan :)) A great qucik fix for anyone craving for chocolate. Will make these again! Thanks for the recipe.

Persimmon Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
Good! I didn't have any ripe persimmons at hand, so I put the persimmons in a blender and blend them into a mush. I halved the oil,and used olive oil instead. Also halved the sugar, used more brown sugar instead of white, and sub 1/3 of the flour with whole wheat flour. Added diced dates. Will make again! Thanks!

Waffles I

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
Very good and easy. I find beating the eggs until fluffy being the trick to making these waffles nice and crispy.Less hassle than beating the egg whites separately and these waffles came out just the way I wanted them.Will use this recipe from now on. Thanks! :)

Costas French Market Doughnuts (Beignets)

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
Yummy Yummy beignets. Haven't tasted the real thing from Cafe Du Monde, but judging from the outcome of these yummy delights I can imagine what the real taste must taste like :) Also what I did was to eat them with sardine in tomato sauce. Tips when frying: Make sure the oil is not TOO hot or the inside won't cook and the outside would browned too much. Always flip them over and over again to get even colors on both sides. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
I've tried this recipe quite a while ago and I have to say I'm impressed with the outcome. Even though it takes some time and effort to make them, if you want your chips to be "healthy" chips, then investing your time on it wouldn't be a total waste. Regarding those whose chips turned out soggy,I think that is because they didn't microwave it long enough or the slices of potatoes were too soggy.I usually pat them dry with a kitchen towel before lightly coating them with oil and salt.And only take them out once they start to brown, if not continue microwaving.They might be soft at first but once u let them cool, they'll turn crispy.
