Fast and Easy Israeli Tahini Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2014
I had a cup of tahini in the fridge which I wanted to use up and was looking for a simple recipe. I did not have unsalted butter so I used salted. I didn't feel like rolling the dough into little balls but, instead, patted the dough out on a sheet pan, cut it into squares with a dough scraper, and baked it for about 20 minutes. I like the taste of these simple cookies because they are not too sweet.

Coconut Oatmeal Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
It was much too sweet. I would cut the sugars in half if I made it again.

Easy Rice Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
I liked this recipe very much. I used four eggs instead of the egg substitute and olive oil instead of walnut oil. The texture is dense but for me that was a plus.

Irish Soda Bread in a Skillet

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
It was very plain but a good base for honey butter or butter and jam. My husband liked it.

Carrot and Raisin Salad II

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
Loved it. I made half a recipe since my husband wouldn't eat it and enjoyed it over several days. I'm going to make another half batch since I have carrots to use up and some sour cream as well.

Avocado Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
Delicous. I topped it with real whipped cream. It tasted better when chilled longer. I got up in the middle of the night and had another piece. I used a Honey Maid graham cracker crust which I think made the difference. I have used store brands before and they weren't as good. I used the original recipe.

Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
My husband said SOS on the ship he was in the Navy was red. I don't know what it was colored with unless it was paprika or catsup. Anyway, he gave the recipe as written a three rating. It was OK but I think I'd zip it up with Season All or some garlic and onion powder next time.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
My family said the meatballs were too bland. I'll make them again but add garlic, parsley, pepper and some other herbs to jazz them up.

Thousand Island Dressing II

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
This is really good. I've made Thousand Island Dressing before but not as much sweet relish. I like this recipe much better than the ones I've made before. It's simple and good and I needed to use up an extra opened bottle of sweet relish.

Quinoa with Sweet Potato and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
I liked this recipe very much. I used portobello mushrooms because that is what I had in the fridge. I'll make this again.

Lemon-Thyme Cornish Hens

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Very good. I put the hens in a crockpot. They turned out tender and delicious. I strained and thickened the broth with a little cornstarch.

Crispy Turnip 'Fries'

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
The spices were good but I didn't like the turnips very much at all. I'll still eat the leftovers. I prefer raw turnips with salt.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
I will make this recipe again. I cooked the garlic with the quinoa rather than adding it at the end since it can give me heartburn. I didn't have fresh thyme on hand so I used some dried. I tossed in chopped green onions with the parsley at the end.

Chicken Curry I

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
I liked this recipe. I sauteed the onions spices as directed then put them in a crock pot with the chicken. I used drumsticks and thighs, bone in. I removed the skin. Next time I would use bone in breasts. I wouldn't put as much water in the pot as I did this time. I have lots of gravy.

Homemade Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
I was happy to find a pudding recipe which didn't require eggs. I used reconstituted dry non fat milk, almond flavoring instead of vanilla and 1/3 cup of sugar. I mixed the dry ingredients first and then added cold milk to the pan to prevent lumps. I think this is a very good basic recipe which can easily be adapted with different flavorings. It would be richer using whole or even 2% milk but I used what I had on hand.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
This is very good. I used a red bell pepper and a tsp of salsa because I didn't have a green pepper on hand nor hot sauce. I froze three of the patties. The patties were too soft since I didn't drain my home cooked black beans enough. I patted crumbs made from homemade French bread on both sides of one and fried it in canola oil. I didn't feel like a bun and ate it plain. I think it would be good this way with a dollop of sour cream and a little salsa on top.

Miss Beth's Yoghurt Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
My husband and I thought this cake was very nice. Mine came out heavy. Maybe next time I'd sift the flour instead of using it right from the container. I used 1/3 cup dark brown sugar and 2/3 cup white sugar plus 2 tsp cinnamon. It was good with a glass of cold milk.
