Cake Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
These do take a while to make but most of that time is cooling time. I made red velvet cake with homemade cream cheese icing (from this site) with a splash of disaronno liqueur with a dark chocolate coating. Some tips that should have been included in the instructions: 1. Let the cake cook but while it is still warm, crumble and add the icing (which should be a little cold). This allows for the icing not to melt too much but still act as a binding agent so the mixture isn't too mushy. 2. Refrigerate the mixture for 2-3 hours or overnight before forming into balls. This makes things less sticky and the balls hold their shape. U can use a tablespoon measuring spoon to do this instead of a melon baller. 3. Freeze the balls overnight. This really helps when dipping into the chocolate 4. Melt the chocolate with a little bit of butter. This helps the creaminess of the chocolate and makes even hersheys taste way better. You can also add a little vanilla or some extract to this step to give it a different flavor. - also, melt enough so its creamy but not too hot as it starts to smell. Melt in 10 second increments - 10 seconds, stir, 10 seconds more, stir, etc. 5. Use a knife and fork. the fork to roll and the knife to lift out of the chocolate and onto the wax paper.

Corn Tortilla Chips

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
I baked these instead of frying. I cut them into wedges with scissors, sprayed one side with some vegetable oil spray, sprinkled some cajun seasoning on them, placed on a cookie sheet at baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Delicious enough to eat on their own!

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
This was so easy and tasty! I added more basil, and also some fresh parsley. Also added some roasted hatch peppers instead of the hot pepper sauce when I was cooking the onions.

Spicy Garlic and Pepper Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
Excellent base recipe and instructions. I added imitation crab meat to this along with the shrimp and it was delicious. Only thing, I cooked the onions with the garlic first and let that caramelize. Then i added the shrimp, crab, pepper, soy sauce, water, hint of fish sauce, and some big pieces of ginger and red pepper flakes. I let this all boil over high heat for a few minutes. At the end, added a little bit of sugar and flour to finish it off the sauce with some cilantro and poured it over the cabbage. Delicious!
