Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
This was my first time making risotto and it came out fantastic. I followed another reviewer's recommendation to add the broth one ladleful at a time, and it took FOREVER. I think it would have been just fine had I done it the way the recipe suggests, 1/2 cup at a time. Also, the recipe doesn't specify what heat to cook it over while you're adding the broth. I found that low was insufficient and contributed to it taking forever. Medium-low to medium is better. Great recipe!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
I made it exactly as written and my pancakes came out bland and mushy. They never cooked through to a normal pancake texture no matter how long or how low heat I cooked them on; the inside stayed mushy and the outside burned. They tasted of raw pumpkin and the vinegar gave it a tang. Despite so many recipes claiming otherwise, vinegar + milk is NOT a substitute for buttermilk because the two just taste completely different and you can tell in the final product. This recipe is so, so flawed and I definitely will not make it again.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2013
My banana muffins came out really well, but not without the changes others suggested; without the added spices, this bread is really bland. I added 1 tsp. each of nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla. I also substituted 1/4 cup of the butter with sour cream because it makes breads amazingly moist and gives them a delicious, slight tartness. I also did muffins instead of a loaf (baked for 35 min. at 325 degrees F). Obviously these are a lot of changes; this recipe is useful as a base recipe to make adjustments based on your own experience and taste. It's hard to really screw up to the point it actually tastes bad, and that alone is worth some stars!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2013
This was my first time making a pot pie, but it turned out fantastic. I followed others' suggestions and cooked the chicken and the veggies in the chicken broth, saving that stock afterward to be used for the gravy. The only other changes I made were minor: I used garlic powder instead of celery seed because I didn't have any on hand, and I made mini pies in muffin tins instead of one big pie. They were sooo delicious! I didn't have the problem that others described of the pies being too dry. I even tried making them two ways, one with putting sauce under and over the veggie/chicken mixture and one just putting it on top as the recipe suggests, and as long as you put lots of sauce, it comes out great both ways. A little time consuming but a very easy and delicious recipe.
