Spicy Lemon Pork Saute

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
Let me just start this off by saying that I did like this recipe a lot. My family, however... The way of cooking the pork was perfect, it was tender and delicious. The sauce was a bit lemony. I drizzled some honey over them to cut the sour taste, and it did help a bit, but not quite enough for my parents and picky boyfriend. He didn't even try past the first bite. Everyone else ate it, they just weren't crazy about the lemon. Definitely cut the lemon juice, and serve with honey, and it's delicious. :)

Grandma's Moist Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
Okay, it really is impossible to mess this cake up. I promised to make a cake for my boyfriend's father for his birthday. If that isn't pressure i don't know what is. I made a french vanilla layer cake with french vanilla frosting. I used this cake, and added McCormick french vanilla blend in place of vanilla extract. I added vanilla pudding mix to keep it moist, and accidentally added a whole extra cup of milk. I didn't realize my mistake until I was wondering why, after 30 full minutes, the stupid cake was still not firm! It took a whole 50 minutes to cook, but finally it did cook and it was still perfectly delicious! The vanilla pudding mix and french vanilla blend complimented this cake perfectly, and was delicious.

Peanut Butter Cookies IV

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
Delicious cookies! I usually change recipes a good deal, but these were delicious just following the recipe! I promised my boyfriend cookies yesterday, and I have a cold so I didn't feel like going to the store for ingredients, so these were the perfect cookies for me. I had all the ingredients on hand! He says they're the best peanut butter cookies he's ever had! (He's a bit of a sweets connoisseur and my recipe guinea pig) Anyways, don't change a thing. Make them exactly as written- they're soft, delicious, peanut buttery goodness!

EAGLE BRAND® Quick Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
Absolutely delicious. Made it for my parent's anniversary dinner tonight, and it turned out perfectly. I tried it out on my boyfriend last night, and it was really good, but also pretty rich. I figured I'd like it a bit fluffier since it was following an appetizer of stuffed mushrooms and a main course of Linguine with clam sauce. What I did was, when I was making my 1 cup whipping cream, whipped, I made an extra 1/4 cup. It turned out just light enough to be the perfect addition to my meal.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
An absolutely wonderful recipe! I made it for a going away party for my friend Josh, and I followed the advice of some of the reviewers on here and used a cup of strong hot coffee rather than hot water, which turned out fabulously. I frosted the cake and then decorated it with white frosting designs topped with M&M's. I would just advise people as we're getting into summer months to be super careful when frosting this in a warm room, the frosting started to melt for me and my top layer slid a little bit. I was able to carefully slide it back into place, and then I had it sit in the fridge for a while before I took it out to serve. Amazing recipe, though!
