Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
Delicious! I made the whole process easier by microwaving the cauliflower for 8 minutes (with a bit of water in the bowl). To make it healthier, I cut up the cauliflower into large pieces and placed them on a roasting pan. I sprayed them with canola oil PAM and sprinkled them with the bread crumb mixture (in which I omitted all of the butter). Tasted great!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
So much fun! I used gel food coloring - green and purple. Avoid the liquid food coloring unless you must - it makes the fondant sticky and harder to work with. If you want to create letters, it is very easy cut if you use a non-serrated knife. I kept it in the fridge and then let it come to room temp to use.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I used 15 oz. of pumpkins and cooked for about 24 minutes. Delicious. I couldn't get enough of the filling in, so it was just a hint of the cream cheese taste - I would have liked more, but oh well. Co-workers LOVED these. They are very moist and fairly quick to make.

Passion Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2006
Oh wow. This was amazing. Chocolate, peanutbutter, & oatmeal goodness. Easy to make-very little prepwork. I halved the recipe & used a 9x9, and ppl are going to be sad I didn't make the full 9x13. Will make again.

Hawaiian Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Wonderful, flavorful, and delicious. I would make this over and over. I used my bread machine to mix the dough, putting in the wet ingredients first and then the dry, with the yeast and sugar on top. Watch it though - the last rising would have overflowed, so I recommend taking it out for the last rise and putting it on a pan to bake in the oven. Split the dough in half and make two round loaves - one loaf is massive, and hard to cook thoroughly. I only made one loaf and it was slightly underbaked, despite the crust being golden brown. I subbed vanilla for the coconut extract.

Sweet Potato Rolls

Reviewed: May 21, 2006
Very light and fluffy inside, and dense and delightful on the outside. I could not taste the sweetpotato- it just made roll more like potato bread in texture. My mum loved these. They remind me of honey bread which we used to buy at the local bakery for school.

Banana Cream Pie III

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
Very good and very easy. I used my mom's pie crust recipe, 1 fat free vanilla pudding and 1 normal banana pudding, and Cool Whip. Easy, tasty, and hard to turn down. Don't forget to wait to put on the bananas until it is near serving time or else they quickly brown while chilling.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: May 13, 2006
Amazingly good. If you boil your chicken right before, don't forget to save 2 cups of the chicken broth. I used fresh spinach after microwaving on high for 1 and 1/2 minutes. Used 2 cloves garlic and 1/3 an onion. Skipped the fresh parsely...and it all turned out delicious. The parents fawned over it.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2006
So I don't even like oatmeal cookies, and I couldn't help but to nibble on these. They weren't crazily oatmealy- and were definately soft inside with a crispness on the exterior. Everyone loved them...made half the batch with raisins, and half without. Would definately make again- so easy!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
Delicious. VERY moist. The middle tastes *almost* uncooked - despite being so. I used smashed Hershey milk chocolate bars instead of chocolate chips. Also, I halved the recipe without any problems. The crusted top sometimes detached when cutting them - but not very much. Would definitely make again.

Dawn's Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
Loved it. Be sure to make them early, as it takes a long time (ie. hours) for the coating to properly harden to the point that you can pick up the walnuts without having them leave stickiness on your fingers. Also, if you have leftover sauce, try making toffee by adding chopped walnuts, and spreading the sauce & chopped nuts mixture over a cooking-spray coated foil baking pan. I used some of my leftover sauce to pour over the cooling walnuts.

Portuguese Sweet Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
Yum. This was my first test with a bread machine- before I made my bread by hand. It's so easy! I don't have a sweetbread setting, so I used White bread, light crust. The bread is light, fluffy, and with a tinge of sweet essence. Recommended.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
Loved these. Will make again. They have an Indian food flavor to them, although they do not taste like crab cakes. I baked them instead of frying. They also freeze really well - shape them, cook them, and wrap individually in foil and just dethaw in the microwave.

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
Oh so yummy. Very moist and rich. The grandkids had to cook Christmas dinner, so I brought this dish. It was the only dish given special notice for its taste. : ) I doubled the recipe and still used only one 9x13 dish to retain a kind of carmelized goodness.

Peppermint Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
Yay! These taste so good! However, they are such a pain to make! You must freeze the patties before you dip them, because if you do not, they start to melt and break apart. Unlike other reviewers, I could not dip them, even after freezing. Instead, I laid use a butter knife to "frost" them- one side first, and then I went back and did the other side (since the first side had dried by then.) Also, I used about 1/4 cup less of sugar than called for, and the consistency of the dough before they dried was perfect- they flattened slightly to form perfectly rounded patties- no need for me to bother patting them out. Also, if you want to cheat, and get the taste without the traditional pattie look, you could always "frost" one side and and leave the other one white, making elegant black and white cookies instead, with the same amazing flavor.

Tropical Salad with Pineapple Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
Oh wow. We've never really been a salad family. A salad to me is a bag of prechopped salad topped with store-bought Italian dressing. This was amazing, and both of my parents especially liked it. Fresh pineapple is a must, and I subbed toasted almonds, which I toasted a bit first, then added the coconut and finished toasting, and then threw it in the mix. Light and tasty, but surprisingly filling.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
Update: Made them again! Still love them - so does the bf. I added more spinach then called for. Next time, I'll use less butter than called for, b/c it makes them greasy. You could get away with a lot less butter. Also, save time and decrease dishes to clean by microwaving the fresh spinach in the microwave for 40 seconds, with a teaspoon of water added to it. I think fresh spinach is clutch to this recipe. -------------------- Loved them, although my family was not a big fan. Very flavorful and hold their shape well. I used 1.5x the amount of spinach and used ~ 3 tablespoons of butter - 1 tbsp to saute the onions and the (added) 2-3 minced garlic cloves, and then added the remaining 2 tbsp of butter in the main mixture; there is NO reason to add more, so this becomes and even healthier dish. I also added 1 tsp Italian seasoning, which was overkill. Next time I'll cut back to 1/2 a teaspoon to forestall the overpowering of the oregano. Will make again.

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2005
Yummy! These actually marinaded for 48+ hours. I kept the pineapple separate, and used fresh pineapple instead of canned. Also used deboned chicken thighs, which while a pain to skin, debone, and cut, worked out ok. The flavor of the marinade eases into the pineapple during grilling. 8/22: I subbed shrimp for the chicken, and it was not good. The shrimp came out way too salty (could be my fault for not soaking them prior), so I think I'll stick with chicken.
