Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
This is the third muffin recipe I've rated on Allrecipes and if I'd made this one first then I wouldn't have given the other two such a high rating. I gave a muffin to my mom and she said it tasted like a chocolate covered banana. They are seriously fabulous! I (like others suggested) used sour cream instead of yogurt and butter instead of oil becuse I didn't have either of those things. I also used a 50/50 blend of white flour and white whole wheat flour. They were dense for sure, but very moist and really, really tasty- just the way I like them.

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
This recipe is fast and easy so I can make it at the last minute. I toss everything into my bread machine and let it make the dough for me. I also substitute 1/2 whole wheat flour for the amount called for. It turns out great every time and my family loves it.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
I followed the advice of Mandacook1 and added 1/4 cup of sour cream and vanilla extract. I also substituted melted butter for the oil since I didn't have any & I used 1cup white flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour. It turned out fantastic and very moist. This recipe is super simple to make and tasted really good. I love it because I can throw these together at the drop of a hat.

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
I've made this recipe a couple of times and it's wonderful. The batter is rich and creamy and the muffins turn out perfectly round and beautiful. The streusel is really unnecessary but if you use it I think you should add oatmeal or something to make it more substantial. I also tried a 50/50 mix of whole wheat and white flour and they definitely didn't have the same loft as before. They still tasted very good but they were pretty flat.

Pumpkin Pie Flan

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
This is a great recipe and it turned out perfectly. My mother-in-law who is Cuban raved about this and asked me to make it the next time she visits. I think it tasted like pumpkin pie without a crust and the texture was different than original flan because of the pumpkin. I prefer the creaminess of flan so I gave this recipe 4 stars.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
Wow! These pancakes are seriously yummy. I made them with a 50/50 blend of white flour and wheat flour and they were delicious. I also used 1/3 the amount of brown sugar for the cider syrup and it turned out great. I think that it would be too sweet with the full amount.

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
This cake is so very delicious! If you're expecting the same loft that you get from a boxed cake then you'll be disappointed as this cake is more dense. But I prefer it for it's simple ingredients (no fake stuff in this one) and wonderful taste. Plus it's much easier to decorate a cake that's more dense- I made it into a bunny cake for Easter. I did substitute butter for the shortening because I never have that in the house and it turned out just fine.

Baked Flan

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
My husband is half Cuban and said that as far as taste and texture goes, this is as good as he remembers from his Grandfather or Abuela. I, too, really liked the taste and texture. It was very smooth and creamy and was the best flan I've had by far. The issue that I had though was with the directions being incomplete. The recipe didn't indicate at what point or how you got the flan onto another dish or if it should be cooled first. And when I poured the hot sugar into a cold dish it quickly became hard and stuck in the bottom of the pan. So I would follow the advice of another reviewer and carmelize the sugar in the pan you plan to use or make sure you're swirling the dish you're baking it in while you're pouring the sugar. After you cook it let it cool completely before you transfer it to a serving plate. Which you can do by putting your serving plate on top of the cooking dish and then turn it over. Maybe those instructions aren't there because it is assumed that everyone knows that but I'm sure there are some that don't. Having said that, the instructions for carmelizing the sugar were very helpful and I didn't have a bit of problem with that. I would give this recipe 5 stars for taste and 3 stars for incomplete instructions.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
I made this recipe twice, the first time I followed the directions exactly and they turned out fine. But I like more peanut butter so the second time I used 1 cup of peanut butter instead of 1/2 and liked it better. The batter was thicker and made it a little easier to work with and they hardened up more quickly. Either way the recipe is great.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
I love this recipe! I'm from FL so it's really important to have an authentic Key Lime pie recipe. I use Nelly and Joe's Key West Lime Juice and it turns out with the perfect bite and texture every time.

Graham Cracker Crust I

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
This crust tasted very good and I liked the amount of cinnamon and sugar. When I made it as directed though there were too many Graham cracker crumbs and not enough butter. I increased the butter by 2 tbsp and was able to thoroughly incorporate the crumbs but I had way too much for the 8" pie plate. I will use this recipe again and adjust the amount of ingredients.

Chewiest Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
If you're looking for something rich and chocolatey then this fits the bill. I thought that the texture was almost like a cookie- it was definitely different. This won't be my "go to" recipe but I usually have the ingredients on hand so it would do in a pinch.

Pecan-Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2007
These pancakes were fabulous! My husband and girls loved them. I reduced the oats to 3/4 cup and added 3/4 cup of ground flaxseed meal and was surprised at how good they were. This will be my "go to" recipe for healthier pancakes.
