Whipped Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
My mom used to make a cake with whipping cream. Her recipe is impossible to decipher ("half carton this and a pinch of that..."). This recipe came closest. First time for me making cake from scratch and this turned out just as good as my mother's!! I did not have cake flour so I substituted 1 1/2 all-purpose minus 2 tbs and added 2 tbs of corn starch (something I found on the internet). And I cut the sugar down to 3/4 cups. My mother usually baked hers at 375 for about 25minutes. It turned out wonderful and even better the next day!! I will be making this again and again!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
I've made this a couple times and can't believe I keep forgetting to rate this! This makes such moist and juicy chicken! To make it hotter, replace some of the salsa with the Rotel can of hot tomatoes!!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
This is my first time making key lime pie, and it turned out sooo good!! I did not do the zest and increased the lime juice to 1 full cup. I did get very tiny bubbles at about 10 minutes. I love the tart and sweet!! I will not be trying another recipe for key lime pie.

Classic Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Really yummy! I followed the other reviewer's suggestion of decreasing temp to 350 and added more evaporated milk. Definitely let it sit out for a little bit before digging in. I know it's hard but it's worth it! Plus, makes excellent, excellent leftovers!!

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
This recipe is similar to the "Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting" on this site but I think I prefer this one better. The smaller amount of whipping cream makes the difference and I like these directions better. I probably should have read some of the reviews before I started and whipped this longer to make it more stiff. But I'll know for next time. I've topped this on "Crazy Cake" from this site and works amazing!

Korean Spicy Marinated Pork (Dae Ji Bool Gogi)

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
I don't think I've ever had this before in a Korean restaurant so I am not sure how it is suppose to taste. I had some loins I needed to use up so I put this together without the gochujang. I substituted Siracha instead. Otherwise followed this recipe to a T (marinated pork 8 hours) and it was amazing!! Love the heat in this sauce. It is not for the timid!!

Graham Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I had a sleeve of graham crackers that were embarrassingly old. So I found this recipe and figured I could salvage the crackers. Since I only had one sleeve (9 crackers), I halved the recipe, reduced the sugar by more than half, and followed the rest of the instructions. I did take a reviewer's idea, making it the "fudge" way. Oh wow, it was so good!! I wish I was not forced to half this!! Next time, I make it, I will keep the original portions but half the sugar.

Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
I had some frozen strawberries in syrup that I needed to use up. So I scaled back the recipe for 1 pound and the sugar more since the strawberries were with syrup. SO GOOD!! And the stores charge $4 a jar for these?? Hoping to make my own from now on!!

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
This was so easy. I left out the olive oil. I added italian seasoning to my plain breadcrumbs and added parsley, parm cheese, and red pepper flakes to the meatballs. After baking, I threw it in a crockpot with a jar of spaghetti sauce. YUM!

Sweet and Spicy Green Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
I bought fresh green beans and did not steam them since I love the crunch. This recipe was so easy yet tasted so good!

Pumpkin Bread II

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
First time making pumpkin bread and this was amazing. I substituted with some whole flour, brown sugar, and applesauce. I slightly increased all the spices too. I had something to bake at 350 so I just used that temperature and it was done after 60 minutes in the oven. This was fluffy and light and yummy.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
Wow, this was a surprisingly great sauce! It does not taste that authentic, but who cares? It tastes delicious. I really should have tripled the sauce! Not ketchup-y at all!

Magic Mango Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
This tasted delicious! I substituted the butter for applesauce and addded vinegar (no lemon juice on hand!) for the baking powder to work. Thus, I didn't have a problem with it rising. My mangoes were actually tart so the sugar called for was fine; otherwise you may want to halve it. The other reviewers were right - this did not taste that great the first day. But by the next day, it was amazing! Thanks for such a great recipe!

Lower Fat Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
I have been using this recipe for years and years and everyone loves it. Just some changes: I substitute applesauce for margarine and I freeze my old bananas. By the time I defrost them, there is already enough banana-flavored water for the 1/4 cup water. I know it sounds gross but it's a complete hit everytime! UPDATE (6/2011): I made this yesterday with yogurt subbing for the margarine and water AND 1/3 c flaxseed for 1/3 c flour. I baked them in muffin pans at 325 for 30-35 min. Still PERFECT!

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
I really like this. I had roasted asparagus one time with balsamic vinegar and it was gross. But this was amazing. I drizzled with EVOO and used only garlic salt and pepper. 10 minutes in a 400 degree oven was PERFECT!! I like it a little crisp.

The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
I actually got this recipe off another website. That recipe called for 3 full cups of flour and no almond extract. I followed that one (since I didn't find this one on allrecipes until later). These were surprisingly good. Love that I don't have to take out the beater. One star off since mine did not spread. Couple of the photos on allrecipes show that their cookies did not spread as much either. Next time I make this, I will make it with 2.5 cups of flour, and if it spreads more, then I will increase the rating. Edit (8/31/2012, 9/16/2012): I followed this recipe twice now and used 2.5 cups and it spread plenty now! I baked it at 350 for 11min and it came out perfect - a bit crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. 5stars!

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
This is about the way I make coconut rice except for the salt. I actually really like the pinch of salt. I put the rice in the rice cooker, and combine the rest of the ingredients minus the water in a bowl. After stirring, I add it into the rice cooker. Then I add water. I've been cooking rice forever so I do not measure the water, just eye balling it. Turns out great each time, but the pinch of salt makes it perfect. For the reviewers who thought this was not sticky enough - you need to cook with actual sticky rice. And while you can eat this coconut rice by itself, I think it's best served as part of a meal.

Addictive Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
I halved the recipe, but should not have since it was so loved! The only complaint I have is that it is a bit sweet for me, but everyone else did not mind. Also, I did do half whole wheat flour and left out the nuts. I always use lining but after reading the reviews that they stuck to the liners I sprayed my pans really well and stuck them straight in. Only 1 stuck and broke apart. I kept all the spices the same -they were just right! Easy and delicious, highly recommended!

Peanut Butter, Mayonnaise, and Lettuce Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
I laughed when I saw this recipe. Never in a million years would I have thought to put mayo and PB together!! First thought was GROSS. Then I remembered how I ate really strange things in growing up in Taiwan but they were delicious!! So curiosity got the best of me. I only had baby argula around which I think gave it a strange taste, but I still gobbled the whole sandwich up! Next time I will try it with iceberg. Everyone out there, don't judge til you try!! Thanks for posting!
