Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2015
I made a couple substitutions. 1) I used applesauce in place of the pineapple. I only had 1c of applesauce, so I added an extra cup of grated carrots, also to try and mimic the pineapple texture. When the cake came out, I thought it looked dry, so I brushed it with orange juice, thinking that would also add a citrus flavor that was lacking without the pineapple. When I tried the cake after frosting it, it was completely moist and not dry at all. 2) I used neufchatel cheese in place of cream cheese and it was fine. Great recipe!

Sweet and Spicy Chicken Satay

Reviewed: May 16, 2015
I used coconut milk, since my family is lactose-intolerant. Worked great, even the kids ate it! Probably less sweet though than with the condensed milk.

Chicken with Quinoa and Veggies

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2015
This is a great recipe. I too did a lot of substitutions. I used baby spinach (about half bag) in place of the scapes. I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh. Omitted the onion, doubled the zucchini, and used around 1/2 t dried basil instead of fresh.

Moroccan Tagine

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2015
I made this with sweet potatoes in place of squash. The chicken seemed superfluous, the next time I make it, I think I will just omit it.

Ghirardelli® Individual Chocolate Lava Cakes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2014
This recipe was super easy! I just used 60% caco chips and only needed one bag. First off if I make it again, I would use about 50% more of the filling recipe. I used a cookie scoop (2 tsp size) to make the balls. With the original recipe, I had enough to make 5 easy scoops and for the sixth one I just used what was left and took a little from each ball. Also if I make it again, I would squish the balls to make them flatter. As balls, they poked out of the batter a bit and I just covered them up before baking. Turned out okay, but I think they would have been better if a little flatter instead of balls. After I made the balls, I put them in the freezer. The batter was very easy to make and I just used a large muffin tin. Filed it about 1/2 full and it went up to 3/4 full with the filling. I coated the tin in shortening and coca powder, and the cakes came out easily after going around the edges with a knife. Also too, I didn't have cake flour so I used all purpose, took out 1/2 T and put in 1/2 T cornstarch. Shifted it twice to incorporate the cornstarch. I also just microwaved everything. Overall, just a easy recipe and very pleasing for a dessert.

Authentic Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2014
I tried this with canned diced tomatoes, grilling the meat and lactose-free milk in place of cream and it turned out great. I also put the sauce in a blender. It looked like I ordered take-out.

Waikiki Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2013
My kids absolutely love this recipe! To healthy it up a bit I use 1 lb of ground turkey or chicken in place of beef and add 1-2T of wheat germ in place of some of the saltine crumbs (which I always use bread crumbs). I also usually don't need to use the milk if I only use one lb of meat or at least I add bread crumbs until I get a good constancy so I don't need it. I grate the onion and ginger on the large pores of a regular grater (after a bad microplane incident w/ ginger! :) ). I also add grated carrots, use about 1/2 the brown sugar and serve over brown rice.
