Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
This was an amazing recipe and fairly easy to make (just don't forget to account for the time in the refrigerator). The dipping sauce recommended by 1hound_1husband is: 1/2 c orange marmalade, 2 t mustard, 1 t prepared horseradish, dash salt, and honey to taste. I added more mustard, horseradish and at least 1 t of honey to make it a bit spicier and because it tasted too much like plain orange marmalade. My family loved all of it. I also made it into a main dish rather than an appetizer by making Betsy's Mandarin Orange Salad which was a great mix because of the orange and lightness of the salad.

Homemade Bagels

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
Delicious bagels! The only issue I had was getting the dough to rise some more and kneading the dough. Other than that, the taste was fantastic and other reviews were incredibly helpful! I will make these again!

Thai Green Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
This was great. I did not use the soy sauce and added 1/2 the amount of sugar. I would add some salt to make up for lack of salty soy sauce.

Betsy's Mandarin Orange Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
This recipe was good except for the red onion! It was really spicy even though I only used 1/2 an onion. Next time I make this, I will replace the red onion with another sweeter onion.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
This was the worst muffin I have ever made. I followed the advice of some writers and used applesauce instead of oil, so there was a slight change to the recipe. Other than that, I followed the recipe, yet the muffin was bland and had a really bad texture.

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
Absolutely delicious and refreshing salad! I made a few changes because I did not have all of the ingredients! Instead of cranberries, I used fresh blue berries which tasted great! I also used Mozzarella instead of Swiss cheese. Finally, I used mixed nuts instead of cashews! The salad was so refreshing, I will definitely make it again!

Vegetable Biryani

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
This was a disappointing recipe. Perhaps in step 2 the instructions should not say to simmer until the water evaporates. The biryani ended up fairly dry. Also, even though the biryani had multiple spices, the spices were so subtle and blended together, leaving the dish bland. I gave this recipe two stars rather than one because it was easy to make and did not taste awful. The dish was edible just not enjoyable. I will not be using this recipe again.

Brownie Batter + Cupcake = The SECOND BEST Cupcake. Ever

Reviewed: May 27, 2011
These were fabulous! I didn't follow the exact directions. I put a layer of cake batter followed by brownie batter and another layer of cake batter. They baked perfectly and the brownie was gooey and delicious. Unfortunately, after making 24 cupcakes, I ended up with more brownie batter and no more cake batter... maybe something I will have to revise in the ingredients or the amount of brownie batter I added to each cupcake!

Milk Pie, Galatoboureko

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
Delicious! I added a 5th egg and put 1 tsp of butter. I also did not have an 8x13 pan so I put in an 8x8. For the sheets I used puff pastry since it was the only one I could find :)

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
Loved the flavor! I did cut down on the sugar by to 2 cups, switch out 1/2 of the oil for applesauce and add 1 tsp of vanilla. It was great!! I will definitely make it again!

Banh-Mi Style Vietnamese Baguette

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2012
This was a really great recipe. Not difficult to make, tasty, and different. My only issue is that proportions are not quite right. The recipe calls for way too much sauce and daikon! And too little carrots and mushrooms, I would double both the carrots and mushrooms (I can't believe I admit to the latter, I generally dislike mushrooms!) Otherwise, it was great! Thanks!

Amatriciana

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
Loved it! It was easy to make! I used turkey bacon which made the dish healthier. I then added a drop of oil so that the turkey would cook better. I also took the advice to leave the tomatoes cooking longer.

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ginger and Honey

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
This tasted decent. It was somewhat difficult too because unless the pieces were all the same size, they did not cook evenly. I might give it another change. I also did 1 tsp of fresh ginger, 1/2 tsp of cardamom and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg.

Sweet Pepper Pasta Toss with Kale

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
This was too bland for me. I tripled the kale and still could have added more. I added black olives for more flavor. I also increased the cayenne pepper, but it was still dry and bland.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
This was a bit bland for me. Even though I added more bananas, 1 tsp of vanilla, 1 tsp of cinnamon, and sprinkled with chocolate chips, I still found it lacking in flavor. Maybe next time I would add chocolate chips throughout the whole bread.
