Peanut Butter Dreams

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
i've made these multiple times. people always ask for the recipe. took other reviewers' tip & froze for a couple hours before dipping in chocolate. would be pretty rolled in crushed oreos or something, too.

Fresh Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2012
I loved the chunky veggies and the spices. Used baby bellas and added some shredded carrots. Forgot to add the ricotta. It just needed a bit more salt, I think (but I like things really salty).

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2012
The spices were good, but it was too much like a -- as dumb as it sounds -- ball of meat. I'd mix in pork or use just turkey next time. TLDR: Good base recipe, but missing something.

Black Bean, Barley and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
It has a slow kick, but still seems bland. Perhaps more cumin, oregano, garlic, & surely salt would help. There aren't very many beans for a chili recipe. I'll probably make it again with double the beans & vamped-up spices.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
To help with shaping the loaf, I lined a loaf pan with seran wrap, added a layer of turkey bacon, poured in the sauce, added meat mix and plopped the whole thing on a baking sheet. Beautiful form with some nice extra flavor ... Like probably everyone else on this site, I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I customized it to my taste (It wasn't very spicy, by the way, when I used green Tabasco) and it was probably the best meatloaf I've ever eaten.

Robbi's M&M Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
I substituted raw sugar for brown and white sugars, and used Cha-Cha (a little smaller than Peanut M+Ms but otherwise the same). Delicious, beautiful. Thank you!

Beetnik Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2010
This was okay. I probably wouldn't make it again, but it wasn't bad by any stretch of the word. I topped it with a brown sugar/powdered sugar/milk/nut (cashews) glaze, and it was much tastier after that. It also tastes better hot.

Chinese Mabo Tofu

Reviewed: May 9, 2010
I substituted green beans for pork (not a meat eater). Delicious and simple -- I had all of the ingredients, save the tobanjan, on hand. Thanks!

Italian Rice Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
to those having trouble with them falling apart: japanese rice might work. onigiri, rice balls, are really popular in japan and the glutenous rice really holds together well. i'd guess you could eliminate the egg in the mixture if you used it. make sure your hands are wet, so the rice won't stick to them, or just scoop one ball's worth of rice onto saran wrap and shape without ever touching it! (note: i didn't make these yet, but thought the tip might help. i'll re-review after making them.)

Almond Butter Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
i changed this recipe to fit what i had on hand, i can't comment on the original (but it sounds good!)... i used 1/2c butter, 1/2pkg cream cheese, 1/2 tsp almond, 1 tsp vanilla bean extract. mix together in blender (about 3c). add sugar, 1/2 cup at a time until you get the right consistency. i tried to add milk, but it gets grainy. sweet, with a mild almond flavor. sooo tasty! great on cake-like cookies.

Self-Filled Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
i followed the recipe as written, but excluded the chocolate chips (didn't have any on hand) and it turned out wonderfully! i didn't have problems with the cream cheese sinking, possibly because i used a blender? i baked them at 180C for 20 minutes, which was a bit too short (they fell later on). the first batch of 6 giant muffins didn't turn out as good as the second, when i included twice the amount of cream cheese mixture (i didn't have any cake or c.c. mixture leftover, by the way). great taste, beautiful cupcake.. i think it would be even better tasting and looking if you doubled the amount of cream cheese, putting in two layers of c.c. and three of chocolate.

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
great recipe (moist, delicious!), but they taste more like banana bread muffins than cupcakes, so i just put a little butter on top right before eating. i tried cream cheese frosting as suggested, but it didn't seem to fit the recipe. put some in the freezer and they warmed up nicely (maybe even better than they were originally)... like one reviewer suggested, i subbed oil for butter. i also froze some of these for later. however, we couldn't wait for them to thaw. they were delicious when frozen, as well. perhaps a good summer treat. :)

Vegetable Quiche Cups to Go

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
easy and delicious make-ahead meal. i took previous reviewers' tips (squeezed and squeezed the spinach, put mix directly into greased muffin tins). i also used real eggs (can't find the substitute here in rural japan), regular cheese, 1 clove fresh garlic, salt, pepper, and jalapeno powder. i topped some with (strained) diced tomatoes, but i think they're better without the topping. it may just be my stove, but i had to cook for 30+ minutes at 180 degrees celsius.

Pumpkin Pie Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
i made the recipe as-is and it was DELICIOUS. sooo moist. and i'm picky with my pumpkin bread. i will DEFINITELY make this again. i brought it to a t-day party and everyone loved it. there were no leftovers. it's great after a couple days, warmed a tiny bit, with a bit of butter.

No Bake Rum Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
i subbed honey for corn syrup because it's hard to find 'round these parts (rural japan). it tasted like rum balls i got from the store. however, i realized i don't really like the strong rum taste (duh!!) after i tried one, so i added 1/2 c peanut butter, 1/2 c crushed nuts, and 1 tbsp cocoa powder. i also added some cocoa powder to the powdered sugar for the coating. delicious. thanks!
