Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
This was OK, but honestly, not good enough to stop using a cake mix.

Followed the instructions to add cocoa and loved it! The chocolate flavor is very mellow.

Pizzelle-Italian Tradition

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
Loved the addition of lemon zest and the subtraction of anise!

German Beef Rouladen

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
I have to agree with the other reviewers who complained it was too bland. The gravy tasted like water, and the beef wasn't much better. i won't use this recipe again.

Pumpkin Cookies VI

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
This made a very cakey (almost the consistency of a muffin even) cookie. I used all brown sugar and added an extra 1/4 cup of oatmeal.

My Navy Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
I really liked this soup, but next time I make it I will sub ham for bacon. I don't like soggy bacon, it just wasn't good in this and I found myself avoiding it while eating. Also, you don't need a whole stick of margarine, I used about 3 tablespoons and a generous pouring of olive oil.

Bean Burrito Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
I had high hopes for this recipe but unfortunately, cannot recommend it and my review keeps getting edited. Not trying to be mean, only honest. The frozen burritos combined with canned soups made for a very unappetizing combination.

Italian Restaurant-Style Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
It is indeed similar to the dressing at Olive Garden. Similar, but not exact. I also subbed olive oil for veggie oil. Really enjoyed this.

Ashley's Chicken Katsu with Tonkatsu Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
This has a very different taste. Unfortunately, I wasn't crazy about it. The sauce was atrocious! I also tried it with store bought Tonkatsu sauce and that wasn't much better. Won't make this one again. Served with soba noodles.

Easy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
These were just average. Quite frankly I feel I am being generous giving these 3 stars, because no pancake recipe anywhere (unless you are feeding like 20 people or more) should call for a TEASPOON of salt. I used 1/4 tsp.

Deb's General Tso's Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This was some really great chicken! I loved it! I used egg substitute in place of eggs, and only fried my chicken in just enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan (less than 1/2 cup total). I used half the sugar called for, so the sauce didn't thicken as much, but I don't like things super sweet. After the chicken was done, I discarded all but a little bit of the oil, cooked the ginger and hot pepper flakes (IPO chilies) in the same pan, and just poured over the chicken, which was being kept warm. Served over rice with a sprinkling of sesame seeds. This was an easy quick dinner as good as you'd get in a Chinese restaurant.

Roasted Garlic Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
Well. I'm in the minority here but hubby and I strongly disliked this soup. It looked like and had the consistency of baby food. Not a bad flavor but no thanks. Will not make again. Threw it out. I do recommend using the white part of the leeks only or you'll end up with a soup that will remind you of a certain part of the Exorcist. I'm sorry, I'm not trying to be mean, but that is what I kept thinking about when looking at the soup.

Hasselback Potatoes

They were OK. Kind of bland, really.

Butterscotch Pie III

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
This was really easy to make, and it tastes great! Honestly though, I don't think it even needs the sugar in the filling. You could leave out the pumpkin pie spice too. This would be really good with some crushed Butterfingers or Heath bars on top.

Spaghetti Sauce Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Sorry, but I was not impressed. The beef picked up no flavor from the seasoning whatsoever, and the sauce never thickened. I won't use this recipe again.

Cream Puff Shells

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Great recipe, however I found the baking time to be a tad too long. I took them out about 8 minutes before the timer was set to go off, and if I hadn't checked them they would have burned.

Croutons

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
I did not bother to cut into cubes, just sliced, and used spray instead of butter, what a great suggestion! These were perfectly crisp and very tasty. I used them in french onion soup, with just a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. Very good, and low fat! Thanks for the easy recipe.

Matthew's Bearnaise Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
Although this is a decent recipe, I hate to say it but I still like the packet mix you can buy at the store better. My mix was a little lumpy, the yolks scrambled on me just a bit, even though I followed the recipe instructions precisely. One tip, it does not take long for the vinegar to reduce, we're talking just a few minutes so keep an eye on it.

Movie Star Popcorn

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I'm the only one in my house who likes popcorn, so whenever I had a craving I would pop some in the micro, and end up throwing out half the bag usually. I never realized how easy it was to pop your own! I love this recipe! Now I can make as little as I want, and it's ready in 5 minutes! I do also recommend coconut oil instead of peanut oil, it is so much better, and is what is used in the movie theater, plus now it's readily available in the supermarket. I don't think that you need to spend extra money to buy premium popcorn, I used the cheap stuff and it worked great!

Pizzelles II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
I never understood why anyone would drop $$ to buy a press that only makes a certain type of cookie, until I had the good fortune of trying one. Oh my goodness, just about the best dang cookie I've ever eaten. So good, that I had to go buy one at Bed Bath and Beyond. I do like them better using vanilla in place of the anise though.
