Easy PHILLY OREO Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
Im rating this 4 cause it sounds yummy but doesnt say if you should use the cream of the oreos and where to use it **Update: Ok, so thanks to the person that reviewed this after me I could make it.. I interpreted "divided" badly, i thought it was the cookies divided in 2! oops my bad.. this was delicious!

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Yummmm soo good.. i used 1 1/2 beef boullion cubes mixed in 1.5 cups water, i had to add 1.5 tablespoons cornstarch to get it to thicken, probably because of not using condensed beef broth, i also added some garlic and pepper and marinated the beef in wine for 3 hours before cooking. I also added some cream cheese and a little less sour cream.. it was creamy and had a really good taste. i also had to add some salt at the end.. i think this much be waaaaaaaaaay better in the slow cooker

Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
yummm, these are really good, i use regular muffin papers cut in half.. they turn out great.. make about 17 if you like a salty sweet taste, use 1 cup peanut butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar and only 1/2 cup graham crackers.. trust me!this will give you a true peanut butter cup!!

Homemade Banana Pudding Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
yummmmmmm very good WITH the changes! 1 1/2 cups sugar is too much, i honestly think the person who submitted this recipe put 1/2 cup, because even 3/4 cups was too sweet. I ended up adding another cup of milk mixed with 2 teaspoons flour. It was perfect! didnt have to add more eggyolks either.. this was perfect for me because i live in chile and they dont sell pudding here.. or im not very sure what the translation would be, so i prefer making it from scratch.. i didnt use the egg whites for the meringue, i whipped up some cream and sweetened it.. i didnt think the meringue would go so well.. maybe it does, but my family doesnt like meringue that much anyway.. plus its summer here and the cold dessert with cream is more "refreshing" thanks for this great recipe!

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
oh my god these were soooooooo good!!.. I didnt think they would be such a hit, i added some pepper and garlic powder and only used mozarrella cheese.. sooo good! also, i used 3 eggs, 3 cups zuccini, 3/4 cups flour and 1 1/4 cup cheese. I had 12 patties the size of those you see in the pictures.. great recipe! no need to drain the zuccini, mine was pretty dry anyway.. but if you have excess liquid i would drain

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
Best banana muffins, even though i didnt have the egg, i used 3 large bananas and 1 tablespoon 1/2 mayonaise and decreased the salt to 1/4 teaspoon.. these were sooo good. I added the crumb topping 10 minutes after puting them in the oven, and it was a pain in ...! sorry for my french, but the crumb topping just fell off, and my muffin pan and oven was full of sugar! so next time i will just put it on top before baking.. I have done it that way before, dont know why I even bothered doing this.. Just make sure your butter is cold to achieve the crumb topping.. good luck! Tip: Dont eat these just out of the oven, let them sit 7 to 10 minutes, that way you wont have a gooey center.. it will be cooked though, it just needs to sit

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
Very good! However, i believe that to achieve the "crumb" topping the butter must be cold.. Fill only 2/3 or you will have trouble taking them out :)

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
Very good chili! I halved the recipe and the changes i made were: 2 1/2 cups cooked black beans, a can of tomatos that i diced and included the juice, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons oregano, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 2 1/4 teaspoons cumin (didnt use chili powder). I left the rest the same just used half. It came out delicious! I did sautee the onion with the meat and drained. this made enough for 5 people. But not gigantic portions. So if you want to eat ALOT i would stick with the recipe :)

Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
Great recipe!! i think that if you use the amount of spinach called for you will have to fill 2 pie shells. I made this with the butter flaky pie crust from this site. I used about 1 cup sauteed spinach with mushrooms and the onion.. (about 2 cups fresh spinach).. since my brothers dont like spinach I prefered this amount. I used 4 large eggs, 6 tablespoons mayo and 1/2 cup milk.. i think that if its watery for you its not about the amount of eggs, its how long you baked it. it has to be baked the full amount of time called for. I used half cheddar/ half mozarrella but I think it would be great with only cheddar. I also added a pinch of salt to the sauteed spinach and a pinch of salt and pepper to the eggs. I think that if you like spinach, you could use the amount called for.. all the changes I made were because of personal taste, but i think this would be great as written

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Will never make another sugar cookie. perfect sweetness, wouldnt change a thing. I used royal icing because i wanted a hard glaze and added lemon juice to it and it is soooo good!! refrigerate overnight and it your dough gets too soft while rolling stick it in the freezer and use the other refrigerated dough.. 10 minutes later it will be hard again.. i didnt even have to use that much flour.. i had forgotten the unique taste sugar cookies have as i live in chile now and hadnt eaten a sugar cookie in 12 years!! i am sooo glad i made them. I used another recipe last year but it didnt taste like a sugar cookie :) YOU HAVE TO REFRIGERATE THE DOUGH.. IF YOU DIDNT YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ROLL THE COOKIE . REFRIGERATE AT LEAST 6 HOURS

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
this is the BEST chocolate cake i have EVER had. i managed to mess it up by using a bad springform pan and it was the ugliest cake you will ever see, but the best taste. i made it with chocolate ganache made with milkas triolade, a mix of milk, semibitter and white chocolate. it is the best cake i have eaten and my family agreed. next time i will make it with a good pan, be sure to grease it well if you have old pans like me.. (im buying new ones) great recipe! thanks to the person who submitted it.. i literally made the batter in 15 minutes (inluding measuring) i used 1 cup of cocoa but i think sticking to the recipe would work fine. dont stop trying this if you only have 3/4 cup cocoa

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
hi everyone! just wanted to say there is no need in doubling the sauce. the primary ingredients in this recipe are the sugar, soy sauce and vinegar. very powerfull stuff!! so i did things differently. first off, instead of 1 tablespoon water i disolved 1 1/2 tablespoons of cornstarch in 1/3 cup cold water. i used regular soy sauce, light brown sugar (white would have worked fine) and 3 tablespoons of rice vinegar. i have been told that cider vinager is stronger than rice vinegar so i definetly think it would be smart to use less. i used 1/4 teaspoon of ginger and this worked great for me. very strong sauce even adding all that water!! i think it all depends on what your using it for, i wanted to use the sauce but if its just a glaze it would probably work fine just as it is written. good luck! dont be intimidated by the recipe you can play around with it! thats why i give it a 5. if you use it exactly as written, just brushing the chicken it will come out fine following the recipe :)

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
These cookies are great! I had a bit of a tragedy, my measuring cup broke when I was getting the flour out and the recipe said 1 cup of sifted flour so i didnt know how to measure it!! so i measured out 32 tablespoons (im a little obsesive) I like measuring by tablespoons because its more acurate. just measure it out and level with knife. I then sifted it into my dry ingredients and mixed them. for the spices i used 1 teaspoon ginger, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon cloves and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg also , they dont sell molasses in chile so I used something called "chancaca" here disolved in water (250 grams and 1 1/2 cups water), im giving you the measurments just in case there is a chilean out there that is having trouble with the ingredients. You use 1/2 cup just like molasses and save the rest in the fridge. i baked them 6 1/2 min and the result were pretty soft cookies. with the perfect amount of spices! oh and as i was afraid that chancaca doesnt have the same amount of molasses that molasses does i used half dark brown half light brown sugar. sorry im a little complicated but ill tell you i have learned alot this year not doing anything but baking! LOL *I tasted these again and I found a little bit of a salty aftertaste, they are great but next time i will add only 1/4 teaspoon salt. also, take the dough out of the fridge a little bit at a time, i would not add flour to the recipe as you will use a bit to roll them out. make them thick 1/4 inch and they will come out

Peach Kuchen

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
I made this yesterday and i was a little afraid to beat the flour into the wet mixture but decided to do that and it came out wonderfull.. i do think that if you use fresh peaches you MUST taste them first, if they arent very sweet i would use 4 tablespoons sugar (2 brown sugar, 2 white).. i mixed the peaches and sugar/cinnamon in a bowl before arranging them on the dough. then drizzled the sugar syrup that was left.. my family loved it... this is also very good with raspberries oops.forgot to say, i doubled the recipe for the dough and used 2 large fresh peaches

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
I finally made these! my family LOVED them. I did change one think and think it might have been a mistake, i made them with a glaze instead of rolling them in sugar.. i think they would have like them more rolled in sugar, this cookie is NOT too sweet, it is perfect and the rolling them in sugar would make them a 6! DO NOT flatten your cookies too much, or at all. i used 1/2 cup margarine, 1/4 cup butter and flattened the first batch with a glass, they were way too thin, then i flattened them slightly with my fingers.. i liked them that way!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
now this is a GOOD muffin.. FULL of flavor, moist, yummyyyyyyyy .. eat them about 10 minutes after taking them out of the oven. they finish cooking outside.. i normally dont eat anything i bake, but the smell that came from these was absolutly divine. the only thing i changes was to use 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar.. maybe i also added some banana, i used 3 medium ones. great!
