Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
This recipe would have been great, but it's missing one essential ingredient: nuts!!! I definately recommend adding nuts to the recipe! I wish I had thought to do so before baking. Otherwise, these muffins have a great flavor. Give them a try!

Cantonese Dinner

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
This sauce is amazing! I took previous reviewer's suggestions and added ingredients. I also doubled the recipe. It turned out amazing. Here are the ingredients I used: 4 lbs pork steak, cut into strips and browned in oil and apple cider vinegar; 2 onions, sliced; 1 pkg fresh mushrooms, sliced; 2 (20-oz) cans pineapple, undrained; 4 (8-oz) cans tomato sauce, 6 large carrots, sliced, 1 red bell pepper, sliced; 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced; 6 Tbs brown sugar, 3 tsp. distilled white vinegar, 3 tsp salt, 4 Tbs Worchestershire. Throw it all together, and you get amazingness. You need a full-sized crockpot to make this. Serve over rice.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
After reading all the reviews, I was a little dissapointed with the cake. However, I think some of the success of the cake might depend on the cake mix you use. I used Betty Crocker SuperMoist White Cake Mix, and even after pouring the Kahlua/coffee mixture on the cake, it still seemed a little dry. I took the suggestions of former reviews and doubled the Kahlua to 2 Tbsp and left the coffee at 1/4 cup. But this was not enough for the whole cake. In the end, I used about 6 Tbsp and 3/4 cups of coffee (triple what the recipe called for), and while eating the cake I still felt like it could have used more of that mixture--it was still too dry and flavorless for my taste. The coffee flavor was barely discernable, even after doubling the instant coffee that was called for. My advice to someone making this cake would be to do two coffee layers, using a Tbsp of the coffee powder, and cater the amount of coffee/Kahlua mixture to the dryness/moistness of your cake. If you use the Betty Crocker mix like I did, use about 8 Tbsp Kahlua and 1 C coffee, maybe more. Soak it enough that it's super-moist, but not to the point that it falls apart. On a positive note, I didn't change the filling or the frosting much at all, and they turned out really good. If you like the Kahlua flavor, you should definately double that everywhere as it is so subtle in the final cake. Next time I make Tiramisu, I am going to try to do it from scratch.

Amaretto Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
Yum! It was great! I added just a touch more ice cream, and I substituted almond milk for regular milk. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing! The recipe indicates that it makes 4 glasses, but I just finished drinking it by myself in two glasses. 4 glasses would mean tiny servings. And FYI, 4 jiggers is equivalent to 6 ounces, just in case you were wondering! So you could just guestimate and put in a little less than a cup (8 oz) of the amaretto and milk. This is truly a delicious recipe, and would make a nice party drink. In my opinion, the alcohol was not strong at all and I am not a big alcohol drinker so I think you can take my word for it. :)

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
Buenisimo! Sustituye leche entera con leche de almendras la primera vez que lo hice y fue un exito. Casí como el queque de mi mamá tica. :) If you want, you can substitute almond milk for whole milk. I did that the first time I made it and it was superb and probably healthier!
