Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
yum yum very good recipe I only have one suggestion that is to cook the pork to 160°F (71°C), this will produce a juicy tender meat, anything higher and you risk your pork getting tough :) 160°F is an absolutly safe temperature to cook your pork by the way :)

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
absolutly amazingly good! :D just 2 things to say: 1. thanks VM for sending me pecans!! and 2. the calorie count doesnt include the crust because it isnt in the ingredient list! so for 1 piece of pie its like 500 calories lol (if you cut it in 8 pieces).. its really good though, a small piece goes a looong way! :)

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
Awesome! Family loved it! followed the recipe exactly, only I used 1 cup of beef broth , added red bell pepper and 2 cloves of garlic to the onion.. thanks Jacquie! this is a keeper! In Chile we make something very similar, only we add sliced hard boiled eggs and black olives to the meat mixture (no ketchup either).. we spice the meat up with paprika, cumin and garlic. And no cheese or onion in the potatoes. Sugar is sprinkled on top and browned in the oven.. I know it may sound weird but it is really good!

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
Ok, this is the best white cake I have ever tried. For taste, a 5. for texture, a 5, for simplicity, a 5. for it not sticking, a 5. Seriously, if this didnt come out for you your probably doing something wrong. the only thing I did different was to add 2 tablespoons of milk. I beat the heck out of the butter and sugar (5 min), then out of my eggs (3 min after each)I used a wooden spoon to mix in the vanilla, premixed the flour and baking powder and sifted it into the batter gently stirring it. then gently stirred in the milk until well combined and smooth. it will not be either too thin or too thick and have a light yellow color. I baked the cupcakes 17 minutes until they were golden on the top. the texture is moist and light but not too moist or too light and has a lightly crunchy top. dont fill the cupcake papers too much (only 3/4) because it rises a bit. this is the only cake i will use from now on and just in case anyone wants to know it is very similar to the cake used in magnolias bakery (i have never tried it, but the recipe is almost exactly the same and I know it is a very famous bakery in the u.s) thank you so much for a great cake recipe !! Oh! and im not trying to say that you copied the recipe.. im just trying to say that a very well known bakery uses a similar recipe :) I know people here tend to make attacks to people that submit famous recipes or that are similar, thats not my intention.. Update: i made this again with margarine and used 3/4 cup milk. it mu

Minestrone Soup I

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
Yumm, made this morning...and just tasted it in the afternoon. it is sooo good, i used 200 grams of tomato sauce instead of the paste. garbanzo beans, more broth (1.5 quarts, the pasta absorbs water so it is still thick). i used spinach instead of cabbage.. added a bit of oregano and dry basil. very very good cheap soup! oh, i omitted the potatoes and added zucchini, more celery and carrots.. this made about 8 servings (240 calories each!)

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
First time i made cinnamon rolls.. these were GREAT.. I used ACTIVE dry yeast, let the yeast proof with warm (1/4 cup) water, added warm milk and butter, sugar, egg, and 2 1/4 c. flour, beat with a wooden spoon, added 1/2 cup more flour, then put on lightly floured table, and kneaded in the remaining 1/2 cup of flour (and maybe a bit more) . Let rise 1 hour, punched down, rolled out, put the sugar/butter mixtuer (used 1/3 cup butter) rolled up leaving 1 inch of the edge without the mixture, put some water on it with my finger to seal. Cut into 12 pieces, placed on lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Let rise another hour (both times next to the warm oven,covered). Baked 15 minutes.. do not OVERBAKE. brushed with 1 tbsp melted butter and sprinkled a bit more brown sugar. Iced with cream cheese frosting (1 cup powder sugar, t tbsp butter,4oz cream cheese, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1 tbsp milk) Second time using yeast.. this was easy once i got help from some of the girls from the exchange! not sure why but i only got one swirl or whatever you call them. next time i will roll out the dough bigger

Zucchini Parmigiana

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
this is delicious! the only problem i had with the recipe is that the zucchini makes it soupy.. i wouldnt serve it to guests, but my family LOVED it! I used only 2 cups of ricotta, 2 eggs for the breading and 2 eggs for the ricotta mixture. im not sure how to make it less soupy because zucchini is a very watery vegetable. I used dried parsley.. yummy!
