Grandmother's Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
I used a butter cake mix and did not use the butter extract. This comes out much heavier than a regular cake and has good flavor but not really a pound cake.

Refreshing Limoncello Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
I couldn't taste the lemon in this. I think I am a "lemonaholic" and need more than the average person. Everyone else said it tasted like lemon. I poured the 3 tablespoons of straight limoncello over the cake without any powdered sugar added to it. It made for a moist cake, but nothing I feel I would waste limoncello on.

Carrot Raisin Pilaf

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
I used 1 cup brown jasmine rice with 2 cups of water. I left the carrots sliced into little coins. Also added a stalk of celery. I also used a bouillion cube and left out the salt because the bouillion cube is plenty salty. No curry or thyme. I stirred in coconut to give this a tropical taste to go with pineapple/chicken kabobs.

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
Toast almonds in a dry skillet, it's easier and faster and you can keep an eye on them much better, too. I used 2 cups of basil. This needs the tang and richness of Parmesan cheese (I added 1/4 cup of fresh grated). No nutmeg.

Simple Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
A little too simple for us. Not much different that a can of Bush's Baked beans.

Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
This came out dry and pretty tasteless. I even used chipotle tomatoes to give it a little kick. I added beans and corn to the filling. 1/2 cup of cheese is pretty skimpy. I added about three cups total. I added about 1 1/2 cups to the meat layer. Still dry. Sour cream for the topping is a must.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
Good flavor and easy to do. I swapped out the water for warmed (110°) milk. Even if you stick with water, it should still be warmed to get the yeast going. I also used one cup of whole wheat flour for some of the flour. It took more like 40 minutes for this to rise. I also let it have a second rising once it was pressed into the pan. Helps make it more light and fluffy. I sprinkled with fresh Parm and kosher salt. No mozzarella. This bread was on the small side. No way it could serve 12 people. Well, it could but they wouldn't be happy about it.

Creamy Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
I thought this was a little too bland. I increased the dijon to 3 teaspoons and increased the vinegar by another teaspoon (2 total). I also added a teaspoon of sugar. That helped. Instead of onion, I had to sneak it in by adding onion powder to the dressing. I used fat free sour cream and reduced fat mayo. No red pepper.

Banana Cake X

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
This cake came out moist, yet still nice and fluffy. Not heavy at all. Super easy. It is really mild on the banana. I could hardly taste it. Depending on what your looking for that could be good or bad. I was worried about adding another banana and having it be too heavy. Maybe banana extract could give it a kick.

Dump Cake IV

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
I wanted to do something with cherries for the 4th and I had a ton of yellow cake mix, so I thought I would give this a try. The bundt pan seemed like a nightmare to try and serve this cake so like other reviews I opted for the 9 x 13 pan. I used a Lite Cherry filling and was so disappointed in the lack of cherries that I added a whole bag of frozen dark cherries to the fruit layer. I only had 3/4 cup of butter, so I used that and it seemed enough. This didn't have a whole lot of cherry flavor. I think the pineapple kind of mellowd it out.Glad I added the extra cheeries. This is a breeze to throw together, but don't do it a day ahead because it was pretty soggy the next day.

Kalimotxo (Calimocho)

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
Been drinking this for years. We call it a "Cola Red". Lots of people turn their noses up to the idea of this, but it really is just a red wine version of a white wine sprtizer. A great way to drink red wine on a warm summer night. Not as sweet as a sangria. And with diet soda it comes out to be a fairly low-cal drink. Adjust the ratio to your personal preference. I like more red than cola

Plum Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
My Santa Rosa plums were too tart for this. It needed a lot more sugar. I used half whole wheat and half regular flour. I added cinnamon and vanilla. I didn't add all of the butter, and actually substituted the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter cooking stick. I like a crisp with an oatmeal topping better.

Caron's Kickin' Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
I like this. Always looking for new ways with quinoa. I cooled the quinoa quickly by rinsing it under cold water, then draining. I had to double the wasabi in order to taste it. I only used a 5 oz. can of albacore, that was all I had. I added some cilantro and diced red pepper. I think this will be even better tomorrow after it sits.

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
When I made up the dressing and tasted it, I seemed way too lemony. But it turned out fine. I made this a day ahead of time. I was using as a side salad so I swapped chick peas for chicken. I added some basil.

Pineapple Angel Food Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
My aunt made this last night. We loved it. She topped it the whipped topping with strawberries and blueberries. So good. It will be perfect for a red, white and blue themed 4th of July.

Swope Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
I made this to get rid of some buttermilk that was leftover. A good dense bread. Quick to make. I cut back on the sugar because of reviews since I was making it to go with roasted chicken. Glad I did. I think this would be good in the morning, toasted.

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
I tripled this recipe for a big bbq party. I used half blackberry brandy and 1/2 regular brandy. I used a red zin and had to end up adding some sugar to the recipe. Next time I won't add the extra lemon juice or lemon slices. I think it might have helped to make it a little too sour. I wasn't sure if I should let this sit out all night without being in the refrigerator but my container was too big to sit in the fridge so I took the advice of another review and stuck it in a ice chest with some ice overnight. Next time I might try apricot brandy because I like my sangria a little more fruity tasting and I don't think blackberry brandy is that much different than regular brandy. I forgot to add the sparkling water. I agree with other post. It doesn't need it.

Mom's Baked Beans I

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
I used Bush's vegetarian baked beans because I wanted to be able to taste the flavor of the liquid smoke. Other beans had added hickory or bacon. The smoke flavor didn't come through at all. Even when I increased the liquid smoke. I followed the advice of another reviewer and added 1/4 cup mustard and brown sugar and garlic. But I thought it was too much mustard. Cooked all day in the slow cooker. I don't like soupy beans, glad I drained off the liquid in the canned beans first because the slow cooker made them too soupy even with draining. Doubt I would make these again. They weren't that more impressive than opening up a can of baked beans.

Alaska Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
So glad I did a sample of this before using for a big BBQ party. I wanted to use this recipe because it served a lot but it makes such a flat cake that the presentation is seriously lacking. I omitted the almond because I don't like almond extract. I tried to use buttermilk in the frosting/icing and it got all lumpy on me. Really easy to do with good flavor. Would work for a little snack cake but not a party cake.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake IV

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
I like the idea of this cake because it used crushed pineapple instead of the rings. Made for better distribution and pineapple in every bite. I only used 2 tablespoons of shortening and then added 1/4 cup applesauce. No cherries. I added pecans but think I would like it better without any nuts. Really moist and good flavor, even with reducing the fat!
