Doberge Cake (Dobash)

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I make cakes for a living, and I wasn't to thrilled with the end result. 1st. The recipe all in it's different components were great. However, this cake is soo light, it easily crumbled as I added the frosting. The cakes stacked 5 high, didn't stay put either, as it jiggled while frosting the cakes. It would have been better dividing 2 cakes in half and stacking then stacking all 5 whole cakes. The cakes were soo tender, that when I cut one slice out and placed on a serving plate, I was immediately dealt with the dilemma of catching the rest of the cake, for it split into 2 more pieces and fell off the cake plate I had it on. And I do mean, catching the cake, it exploded everywhere. My husband had to help me get the cake on other plates because I had my hand on one side of the cake holding it up. The frosting was quite delish but I ended up adding over 3 TBSP of milk to thin it. Don't think I'd make this again. I'll make the frosting again for sure. Just not this particular cake recipe. Sorry.

Avocado Blueberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
Easy peasy, but very very tart. I used fresh that I froze instead of purchasing frozen store bought. But it was extremely tart with the greek yogurt, that it made my tongue really dry and made me grab for some water to put the moisture back in my mouth. You can't taste the avocado but you can taste the yogurt above the blueberries. It totally needs a sweetener. My health nut kiddo didn't like it. As she would normally. Possibly the greek yogurt needs to be flavored and you need to add a sweetener to take the tartiness right out of the smoothie.

Grands!® Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I've made monkey bread over the years, normally use the smaller refrigerator biscuits, 1st time using the Grands(R). One thing to watch for in the recipe is topping the brown sugar mixture at the end, please take advice, use a spatula to tuck some of the mixture down beause of over spilling in the baking process OR do what another person recommended she did, was put some of the mixture on the bottom of the pan. I wished I had looked at reviews before completing, would have saved me from burning the bottom of my oven. Other then that, good recipe ended up adding more cinnamon, because towards the last 4-6 biscuits I noticed the cinnamon was no longer ahearing to the biscuits and it was just sugar. But recipe is a keeper and it was quite good.

Grandwich Breakfast Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I always keep on hand, frozen sausage patties and pre-cooked frozen egg patties on hand. For days where ya want a Sausage Egg and Cheese Biscuit without having to drive to a local fast food place. Always a plus with Grands Biscuits and in less then a 30 minute trip, hot and fresh and ready to go. The cost is a lot cheaper too. Always a keeper and an easy pleaser for breakfast dinners too! TY

Basic Vegetable Stock

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
This was soo easy to do, 1st time I've made my own vegetable stock...lord where was this recipe years ago....I could have been doing this all this time...but no, I'd buy the box...not any more. I'm glad the submitter wrote extra notes about using other veggies for different vegetable stock options. I will so keep this from now on. TY I used this recipe as part of my dinner, and it worked soo well in the split pea soup I made.

Easy-Bake Cheddar Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
Sooo easy to make on a whim! I doubled the batch and mine weren't dry at all, very moist(over kneading will make them dry). They came out light, airy, flavorful but could use some garlic of some kind next round. I topped with some shredded cheese after they came out of the oven, but no one bothered to put the cream cheese spread on them at all. They were satisfying just as they were.

Wintertime French Style Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
The soup may not be the prettiest bella at the ball, but it was well worth the work. It did take longer to get the peas to soften but the overall flavor was really nice, DO add the ham...it adds soo much richness to the dish. And ignore the not soo appealing color from the turmeric....it's still good. And I had to use russet potatoes because my store was out of new potatoes but otherwise, didn't change a thing but would suggest adding a pinch of salt. Everyone in my house enjoyed it, and I mean everyone. Will make again.

Avocado Peanut Butter Brownies (Vegan)

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
As written, this recipe is OFF. I should know, made this recipe 3x. I know most would have stopped at once. But I really wanted this recipe to work & after the third time, it finally did. As written, the recipe, is gritty, oily & a flop. BUT the flavor is there & that's why I took such an interest in perfecting this recipe. When making the recipe the 1st time, a huge issue, don't let the recipe start bubbling, the sugar does not break down or melt in with the chocolate and peanut butter, like you think it would. And if you let the mixture bubbly, you will get an aroma of burnt peanuts. Not a good thing. And I was on that pot like a hawk. Even the 2nd time around, same thing. The other thing is that there was soo much oil at even 1/2 cup with the amount of sugar, the oil never retain & oozed to the point that it was frying the sugar as it was baking in the pan & causing the gritty-ness that you could feel, taste and see. Both 1st two batches, glopped, couldn't be cut into squares, even completely cooled due to the excess of oil. When making the 3rd batch by cutting the oil to 1/4 cup, became a batch of brownies. It still had a slight oily residue left but no where near the 1st two batches. I can tell you, the oil might be even lowered to 2-3 TBSPs but as for modifying this recipe to make it work..lower the oil or you won't have a successful batch to enjoy. The 3rd batch was awesome! Glad I was persistant and got to enjoy a batch! As is 0 stars, as modified 5 star.

Cranberry Oat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2013
The bread was very good, but I found it just a tad on the dense & heavy side. I liked it, it was rather easy to assemble in the bread machine, will make again, possibly a little less flour. But over all I liked the tang of the cranberries.

Ganache II

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
I've used this recipe quite a few times. I really like it very much and it's soo easy to use. The recipe is very forgiving. Very flexible. The one thing, I never alway to cool completely because I'm using it immediately. It totally gives that satin look to it when it dries and it quite gorgeous to look at. Even though I've used as directed with bittersweet, I have also used regular semi sweet as well.

White Chocolate Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
My daughter and I made this recipe together, well I helped a some as a teacher to my daughter and let her do most of the work on this recipe on her 1st bread machine bread. I saw how easy it was put together...the bread turned out great. The one thing I have to say, if you have a bread machine that does the automatic fruit & nut drop in with watch for it, my machine, doesn't beep, rather makes the dropping noise and I chose to hold off putting chocolate in the machine because I didn't want to clean melted chocolate off my bread machine. So when I heard the machine do it's little drop lid action, I quickly opened the machine and dropped the chips in & we went to bed. In the morning we checked the machine and saw a beautiful loaf, nicely golden brown. Removed it from the machine and it felt soft to the touch, easily sliceable and smelled terrific. The overall taste was quite nice and there was no evidence of white chocolate chips anywhere in the bread(as far as seeing chips or streaks of white chocolate). It had a mild sweet delicate flavor and a hint of sweet cinnamon. The bread looks of a light honey wheat. And half the loaf was gone before my kids left for school. My daughter was pleased with the taste as well as everyone else that enjoyed it. Now I'll have to make another loaf. TY for the recipe, it's a keeper. Oh one more note to others. Warm water and warm milk is best if the temp is about 105-110 degrees. And select the 2lb option on your machines.

3 Ingredient Pulled Pork Barbeque

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
Soo here's stumbling through this recipe ;-) End result was great. However getting there was like getting Little Red Riding Hood to go to Grandma's ;-) And I grin on this because, I made everything on this recipe, from scratch...no kidding. Went for dry onion soup mix, was out...came to AR, got the recipe and made it..YES! Then was out of BBQ sauce, crud-ola'! Okay made that too from scratch as well, thanks to another AR'er here named Georgi, that's a dear friend of mine, and gave me a recipe she's been making for 30+ years, and it was prefect, just made enough to complete this recipe. It's all good, had I had just the basics already, when I was making this..it couldn't have been any simplier. The only draw back I saw, was this morning, when pulling the meat out to shred it, was the meat on the very bottom had scrotched and I had to discard those pieces. I could have easily put on low and been able to save some of the meat durning the night by moving the meat around to prevent that, but that wasn't the case. Do watch the meat closely. However, the recipe turned out great, even though I had to take additional steps to get this recipe done. And it was worth it because my family asked for me to make it again. And I have soo much. This batch makes alot. I also used boneless country still ribs verses bone in because it's what I had purchased. There wasn't much discarded or wasted at all. TY it's a repeater.

Dill Pickle Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
This was fabulous, fantastic, just wonderful. I had no problems putting this recipe together at all. I only doubted how much of 1 dill pickle it should be, because various pickles are various sizes. So I had chopped up a bunch of midget dills and it was roughly about 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup of chopped pickles. The flavor was nice, wasn't overpowering with either the dill weed or the pickle it's self. Was delightful and my son...requested it again. Of course he prefers freshly made breads and this made me happy. We enjoyed it the way it is and wouldn't change a thing. TY very much!

Dry Onion Soup Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
Very easy recipe!!! And super flavorful too, just what I needed to add to a recipe when I realized I was out & now I'll make my own since I keep everything on hand all the time, except for today LOL. I might add, that I didn't have the granules needed for the recipe, so I took a few cubes(probably about 7 or 8) and placed them in my personal blender(Magic Bullet) or use a coffee grinder...pulervize the tar out of them to get it to...well ground texture, I went fine texture on mine. And measure accordingly to the amount needed for your recipe. It was rather quick and simple. And this is a no fuss recipe. TY

Frijoles de Olla

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
I've been making this recipe for a while, most probably don't realize this recipe is similar to basic canned beans for adding to other dishes. And has less salt then can beans. It's a perfect recipe for adding into chili, refried beans, casseroles & bean dishes. I just realized I forgot to rate it. And great for changing up other types of beans, since I have a mass amount of mayocoba beans, I tend to use them more in this recipe then anything. The recipe is very light in flavor and I don't find the recipe over powering in salt. TY just thought I'd let you know I've been using this recipre now for about 3 years in rotation with a few other bean recipes.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
After it was all said and done, it was okay. While the flavor of the meat was fine and so was the gravy, I didn't like putting the sliced onions pan at the same time as the meat(onions got to done well before the meat did & ended up turning black, even on medium heat), and the batch was very oily. The last step of the directions were simple enough, but I had soo much oil in the pan from the meat and the added oil from the ingredients list...that it was way to much. I should have gone with my gut instinct and removed much of the oil 1st, however the directions didn't state to whether to remove or drain excess or and reserve a few tablespoons(which really should be the case). But as it set up, I 2nd guessed myself and followed through with adding the patties back to the gravy and simmering for 15 minutes, that was a huge mistake because there was soo much oil that separated from the gravy and pooled on top of the whole dish, that really was not appealing at the least. Skimming the oil off was a challenge and it resulted with over 1/4 cup of oil excess. Please take the advice to use either very lean lean meat and/or drain most of your oil out of the pan after cooking the meat, so not to have a very oily gravy in the end.

Asian Pepper Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
Very good and basic recipe...I love a good Asian salad. This was fine. I used up a bunch of mini peppers that I received and the used white corn verses yellow. But it all came together beautifully and was simply stunning with vibrant colors from the veggies.

Moroccan Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
I'm sitting between, okay and liked it. While I had all the ingredients on hand and it was rather easy to put together. The herb mixture was not a sauce, as stated in the 3rd step of the directions. It was thick and pasty and rather then a sauce, so it made me go "ohh fudge, what did I do wrong?" which I didn't feel I did but feel that there was way to much cilantro and parsley, I followed threw with the rest of the recipe as directed. However, the over all dish wasn't quite appealing as it was dark and blah looking. The smell as it was baking was not pleasant at all, and really made everyone complain....However, the dish was okay, the flavor was different, not something I had ever tried. My girls said some things in the dish was nice and avoided other things in it. I used small red potatoes and just slice in half or quartered because of their size. But will say, less peppers, less cilantro & parsley...And the dish would be better.

Great 'n Easy Gazpacho

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
I really and truely loved this recipe. I didn't add much black pepper at all and glad I didn't, the veggies blended together added that peppery taste needed. The one thing that was slightly different only because at last minute realized I didn't have whole tomates but rather crushed w/basil already in the 28 ounce can I had...and based on that, my batch was beautifully seasoned. Sooo if the recipe is slightly bland..just add a few dashes of dried oregano. My Ninja food processor is a champ and I measured with all ingredients and the size of batch it makes, to be about 72 ounces total. I love it. This makes a super easy recipe, fast with little prep work, delish & go to recipe, if you're not sure what to have for a quick lunch. I couldn't be more pleased with my results.
