Pupusas de Queso (Cheese-Stuffed Tortillas)

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I wish I had a tortilla press because these pupusas took a lot of time to make. I added salt to the dough and refried beans to the filling. Instead of using two pieces of tortilla, I only used one. I also cooked half of them in a little bit of oil because the first half were coming out too dry. I served it with homemade curtido on the side because I can't eat pupusas without it.

Mock Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
After reading some of the reviews, I decided to thaw the tofu in the fridge instead of putting it in hot water. After thawing, I squeezed out the excess liquid. I used "Amy's Garlic Chicken" recipe, also from this site, and served it with garlic brown rice. Loved it! Next time, I will try it with extra firm tofu and see which one is better.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
These were so easy to make and they were so good. Instead of using powdered sugar, I used crushed peanuts to coat the truffles. The best part is they melt in your mouth. If Reese's made truffles, they would probably taste like this. This is a keeper.

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I used vegetarian beef because my boyfriend and I don't eat red or white meat. I used brown sugar instead of regular sugar, 4 cloves of garlic instead of 2, and I added some sliced onions in addition to the green onions. Because I didn't have any sesame seeds, I replaced 1 tbsp. of the vegetable oil for sesame oil. I marinated the "beef" for half an hour. Towards the end of cooking the beef, I added some black pepper and it tasted great. Next time I will add some vegetables.

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
I followed the steps but I tweaked the recipe a little bit because it tasted kinda bland. 1.) First, I seasoned the tofu with seasoned salt and I sauteed 2 cloves of garlic (minced) in olive oil and then fried the tofu in the oil 2.) I used 5 tablespoons of brown sugar. 3.) I used all of the 1/4 cup of soy sauce to the milk instead of 3 tbsp. and I also added 3 cloves of garlic (minced). 4.) I mixed the basil with the tomatoes, mushrooms and bell peppers. 5.) I added 1 teaspoon of seasoned salt. It was delish!!! My boyfriend and I loved it so much that I made it twice in one week. It taste just like the yellow curry that I order at every Thai restaurant I go to. Look at the picture...mmm...looking at it makes me drool.
