Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Great basic sugar cookie! I reduced the flour by 1/4 c and used 2 teaspoons of vanilla for flavor. I rolled these in a little sugar and put the pan in the freezer for 30 min before placing them in the oven for a little over 8 min. I'm a little confused by the size of cookie that the recipe suggests - 1 tsp is SO tiny! Mine were about 4x that and they were normal sized cookies! The cookies were crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle!

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
4 stars since it needed some changes, but with the changes, I might give it 5. The sauce was very thin, so I added a 6 oz can of tomato, 8 oz of tomato sauce, and a little bit more wine. From the advice of other reviewers, I used red wine instead of white. I garnished this with fresh chopped parsley.

Berry Delicious

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Yay for healthy things that taste good! I made one alteration - I used Greek plain yogurt, which gave it a really nice consistency. Next time I'll definitely try strawberry yogurt though. This probably doesn't need the added sugar unless you use plain yogurt.

Million Dollar Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
I was trying to find a cake that my boyfriend loves that's like the "Millionaire Pie" served at Furr's Cafeteria (a restaurant in the southern U.S. states). It's not quite the same, but the icing is almost right on. I used french vanilla cake mix and instead of adding all the water I added some of the mandarin orange syrup - I'm not sure if that made a difference or not. I slowly added the confectioner's sugar because I didn't want it to be too sweet; I probably used 1 1/4 c instead of 1 1/2c. Also, I heeded other users' advice and didn't add the pineapple juice. This icing is also great as a fruit dip!

Crab Rangoon III

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
I took a lot of the suggestions into account when I made this: I used only 4 oz of imitation crab meat, 2 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese, and left out the water chestnuts. I added in green onions. I made a tight seal with a mixture of water and flour and pinched it closed. I also put them in the freezer for a few minutes so I wouldn't have problems with the filling oozing. This made SO much!! I used the whole package of wonton wrappers!! I'm thinking about freezing some to see how they turn out.

Plum Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
This is a great sauce for crab rangoons. I've made it twice. Someone commented that the sauce thickens up like jam when it cools, so you have to warm it up again. I encountered this too, so I added some pineapple juice to thin it out. I also used fresh, minced ginger and left out the minced onion.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I thought that these ribs were pretty good - I wish I had more of a "fall off the bone" result as some others did. They had a kind of a tougher texture in some parts. Maybe because I didn't have any foil, so I just covered them up with another pan. Also - don't forget to trim the thin membrane on the backside! I used a rub on these for the marinading and 2 hour baking time. After that, I brushed on Jack Daniel's bbq sauce and broiled for about 6 min on the meaty side and 4 on the other. I took them out of the oven, brushed on more sauce and served. I would definitely try this again to master the texture.

Butter Cream Frosting II

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
This was a really nice frosting; I used it on some cupcakes. I made some alterations because of some of the earlier reviews, so I only used 3 c of powdered sugar. The consistency was perfect even after this change, but I was a little bored with the flavor - it's just kinda plain - so I added a small amount of almond extract to make it more interesting. I'd definitely make it again.

Honey Walnut Shrimp

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
This recipe was different...I don't really know how I feel about it. I made it basically as stated except to batter the shrimp I found a recipe on this site to make a tempura batter. Overall, the flavor was pretty good and the texture was nice and crispy. The nuts are my favorite part. My boyfriend, who doesn't like shrimp unless it's breaded and fried even liked it some. I think I would have liked it more if I didn't know what ingredients were in the dressing. The mayonnaise plus condensed milk kinda freaks me out. I'm not sure if I'll make it again.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
This soup was great! With some alterations, I made it much healthier. I used oil instead of butter and 2% milk instead of cream. I didn't have any curry powder on hand, so I made a blend of cumin, coriander, cardamom, and chili powder. I also left out the rice because I didn't have any. Overall, it sounds like I really changed the essence of the soup with all the alterations, but I really don't think it's too severely different.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I noticed that most of the flavor in the sauce was from soy sauce, so I decided to add some rice wine vinegar, some orange juice, and zest to give it a more complex flavor. It ended up really nicely.

Black Forest Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
Great recipe with a professional look! My friends were surprised that I made it. I only made a some slight changes: I made a ganache to add in the layers to give it some textural difference and I used 20 oz can of cherry pie filling to save some time. I didn't have enough cherries to fully top my cake, so I'd recommend using a little less in the middle layers.

Chicken Tortilla Soup IV

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
This soup is awesome! It's come out really thick with a substantial amount of chicken. It's pretty healthy - I made a few minor alterations - I shredded the chicken, added lime juice, fresh tomato. I reduced the salsa to about 1/4 c and I only added the tortilla strips to garnish.

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
I love this recipe! I've made it twice with great results. The changes I made are adding a bit more vanilla and the second time I made it I accidently used Fat Free cream cheese and had a good result, but it wasn't quite the same. I also didn't bother with the towel; I just used a water bath. I would recommend not eating it until 24 hours later because the flavors and textures are much nicer.

Indian Style Basmati Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2006
The smell of this rice is great and just tastes really authentic like the indian restaurant I go to. I didn't have basmati rice so I used white, but I'm sure you could use brown or another type of rice.
