Holiday Left-Over Sweet Potato Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I halved the recipe and made this with 3/4 cup mashed kabocha squash. I used 2 eggs, apple cider instead of beer, half whole wheat flour half all-purpose flour and half olive oil and half canola oil for the oil portion. I baked them in a mini muffin pan at 350 for 10 minutes. I came out with 48 total for just half the recipe! They came out great with soft fluffy centers and nice crispy tops. My boyfriend who hates squash even like them.

Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
I didn't follow the directions and accidentally mixed all the ingredients in a bowl at once. It didn't matter--it came out perfectly! I baked them as mini tart shells in a mini muffin pan at 400 degrees for 7 minutes and filled them with sauteed mushrooms, scallions, garlic salt, extra virgin olive oil and a splash of red wine sherry. Topped with goat cheese. It was amazing. And the pastry shells taste great on their own!

Broccoli Cheese Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
I doubled the recipe, substituted the onion for 1 cup of chopped chives, 3 extra large eggs, used fat free cottage cheese and used Trader Joe's Cornbread mix. These came out perfectly! I couldn't stop myself and ate half the pan. I can't wait to make them again, but this time in a mini muffin pan. 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes.

Tofu Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I halved the recipe and baked it in 6 small premade graham cracker crusts. I only gave it 4 stars because it came out a bit too lemony, but I did halve the recipe so that could have been the cause. In all it tastes great! I topped with fresh strawberries and that hid the lemony taste. It's a very dense cheesecake. I will definitely try this again, but maybe try using lime instead of the lemon and topping with fresh blueberries.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
Like others said, the batter is really dry even after you add the zucchini. You have to press the "batter" into the pan, but as it cooks, the zucchini's moisture is released. I added too much oil because I thought it was too dry--big mistake!--so it came out crumbly after I cooked it, but still tasty. I pat it down to make it more dense and crumble less. Still tastes great! EDIT: I made this again but stuck to the recipe and used grated instead of minced zucchini. The consistency was different and more cakey and not as sweet. I'd recommend adding a bag of chocolate chips and decreasing the sugar to 1 cup and using minced fresh zucchini instead of zucchini that's been sitting in the fridge for a week.

Pumpkin Butter IV

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
I halved the recipe and it came out waaay too sweet. I would suggest decreasing the sugar by 1/4 cup and replace another 1/4 cup with brown sugar for a deeper taste. I usually eat my pumpkin butter with either sunbutter or Tofutti vegan cream cheese on toast. This recipe definitely hit the spot!

Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
I made this for a bake sale for school and it was a hit! It was the number one seller. I used dark chocolate cocoa and filled the middle with dark cherry preserves and used store-bought cream cheese frosting and dusted the tops with cocoa. I have made 3 batches in the past three days and can't keep them from being eaten! The only problem I saw was that I am sensitive to the taste of baking soda in my foods, and was able to taste the baking soda. But after 1 day in the fridge, it went away.

French Crepes

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
This is an excellent recipe! Some suggestions for people who say the batter is thin and the edges are crispy. First, when you make crepes, you have to tilt the hot, slightly greasy pan and pour the batter in the from the edges. DO NOT start in the center or else you will end up with "the batter would settle to the center before setting" as stated in an earlier comment. Secondly, immediately after you cook them, place them in a tupperware with the lid covering them, but NOT sealed. This will keep them warm and moisten the edges and other crispy areas. This is the perfect crepe recipe! The taste and consistency are on point. So any complaints people have about this recipe is not because of the batter, it's because of not cooking them correctly. These are great and truly easy to make!

Pleasant Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
My fiance usually hates onions, but after eating this dish, suggested using more! I also recommend 1 tbsp. of honey to sweeten it up a bit. I also boiled potatoes for an hour with garlic and butter while the broth was simmering for a simple side dish.

Basic British Scones

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
This is an incredibly easy recipe! I added more milk to the batter and put pats of butter on the tops of the scones right before baking for a richer taste.

Broccoli Cheese Soup IV

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2006
This recipe is amazing. If you're a broccoli lover, I'd recommend adding a touch more broccoli and cut a tbsp off the cheese because the saltiness can be a bit overwhelming. If you love cheese, this recipe is perfect.

Soy Milk Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2004
The batter came out too soupy, so I added 2 heaping tbsp flour and 1/2 tsp baking powder. They taste just like the store bought mix! Thanks for the excellent recipe.

Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2004
I hate giving bad ratings, but these were horrible! I made these as a surprise for my boyfriend one morning, but they ended up a disaster. The recipe called for way too much filling which overflowed while baking and dirtied my oven. When they cooled, they were hard as rocks because of all the sugar and the bread wasn't sweet but bland with a subtle hint of salt. We each had a stomach ache all day because of these.

Philippine-Made Sugar Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2004
I really enjoyed making these cookies. They're delightfully light and cakey. Instead of sprinkling grated chocolate, I melted chocolate chips in a double boiler and drizzled it over the cookies after they cooled.

Waffles II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2004
This is an excellent recipe. It tastes like cake! I also followed everyone's suggestion to add 3 tbsp. sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla. Beating the whites separately only takes a minute or two, but it's worth it.
