General Tsao's Chicken II

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
This turned out to be such a delight! I got the chance to work with flavors I hadn’t used before and was delighted to notice that I could taste the more subtle flavors like the sesame oil and orange zest. I doubled the sauce when making this recipe because I like extra for my rice. A plus of this recipe is that it is truly versatile; add extra orange zest to make orange chicken or add extra ginger if you want a more gingery tasting meal. I made this recipe to the ‘t’ the first time and the other times I have made it I don’t use the cornstarch. I prefer my chicken that way. And one big BIG tip, if you measure your ingredients, get everything measured out before you cook this! Otherwise, your kitchen will turn into a chaotic mess and you may burn something…

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
Yum Yum Yum!!! This was my first go at a key lime pie. There are so many options; I didn’t know which was the “true” key lime pie. I went with this one because it had fresh key lime juice, no green dye or jello, and, just about anything with condensed sweet milk is yummy. I will definitely make it again. I can’t wait to make it for company! Note: the fresher the key limes, the easier they are to squeeze and the less you will need to squeeze. Some of my key limes had hardened a bit and produced very little juice. Also, the pinholes were hardly there. I cooked it a couple extra minutes just in case and took it out even though I didn’t see any. Lol, my fiancĂ© had a hard time believing I cooked this myself!! It’s crazy how good this was considering how easy it was to make. One of the easiest if not the easiest pie I have ever made.

Easy Sour Cream Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
I can't believe how easy this was to make! It turned out great! I used a store bought graham cracker crust instead of the shortbread one though.

Creamy White Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
I have never been so surprised with anything I have cooked. When my family took our first bites we looked at each other and smiled. The flavor to this soup will knock your socks off. Personally, I didn’t think that it looked too pretty in its presentation but made it because the ingredients sounded good. And was it ever! I had never used sour cream in a soup and didn’t know it would add such a flavor. The only thing I was slightly disappointed with was that it is not a creamy or thick soup. Flavor makes up for this though! Also, this is a high fat soup so if you are worried about this, I would recommend making this as a side dish or first course to start dinner off with. Personally, I say don’t compromise taste by cutting out the tasty ingredients. Let yourself indulge but just eat a little less.

Italian Meatball and Cheese Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
This recipe was absolutely delicious!! I used cubed steak, cooked medium rare instead of meatballs though. I set it aside and the rest of the fam. added to their bowls as I don't like meat that much. Also, I cooked the veggies for longer. If I had followed the recipe exactly, the veggies would still have been very hard. Everyone raved about how good it was. Will def add this to my recipe box.
