Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
To those of you who aren't sure you want to try this recipe because of the comments about "too much lemon juice", my advice to you is: try it! Just add a little at a time until you get to where you like it. (Turns out I like it pretty close to what is called for. Also turns out that I'm fond of salt...) Use a big eggplant, and if you can't char it over an open flame, just roast it, and then cheat by adding a drop of liquid smoke. (Hey, it'll do!) I'll be making this again!

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
Outstanding! The texture is smooth and rich, similar in some respects to truffles, and the word 'decadent' is not an overstatement. Serve it in small slices and pair it with something fairly tart, such as a raspberry coulis, to act as contrast, otherwise it will quickly become overpowering and "heavy". For those of you who are inclined to follow alteration suggestions of other reviewers, my suggestion is don't change a thing. Make it exactly as the recipe states, at least the first time, anyway. You won't be disappointed. (By the way, a springform pan isn't necessary - a regular cake pan works just fine. Line the bottom with parchment paper, and run a sharp knife around the edge as it cools, and you'll have no trouble getting it out of the pan.) This recipe is a showstopper and a definite keeper!!!

Baklava

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
I followed the suggestion of other reviewers and turned the temperature down to 325 F, and it turned out perfectly. Everyone I've served this to says that it's the best baklava they've ever eaten because it's not as over-the-top sweet as other versions. Even my husband, who is NOT a dessert eater loves it. This one's a keeper!

Salsa Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
Quite good! One of those simple "I can't believe I didn't think of this myself" recipes. I used low fat sour cream instead of yogurt, and threw in some celery, and it turned out nicely. Definitely perks up plain old tuna for lunch! I'll make it again!

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
Outstanding! I've taken this to a few dinner parties, and people nearly collapse when they see it, and then they rave about it when they actually taste it! Even people who don't like coffee have gone bananas over it! I made a few slight alterations to it, by using instant coffee (dissolved in a tiny bit of water)instead of liqueur in the frosting, rum instead of the liqueur in the filling, and I used at least two cups of coffee (in total) to pour over the layers, instead of just 1/4 cup. (It seems that the more coffee I poured over it, the better folks liked it.) This one is a keeper!

Country White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
I've never been very good at baking bread, so I was looking for something "idiot-proof", when I happened to run across this recipe. (I absolutely had to try it when I discovered that the person who posted it is from my dad's tiny hometown!) The bread turned out perfectly (to my husband's surprise), and tasted awfully close to the bread my Grandma used to make! I'll definitely use the recipe again!
