Pasteles De Coco (Coconut Pastries)

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Easy peasy...made these with my toddler! Yummy...I didn't have canned grated coconut, I used orange flower water and golden syrup with some honey to wet the dry coconut...I added pine nuts...I tweak things...but I am sure the recipe is great by itself...it lends itself to creativity!

Apple Pie Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
very yummy -- tried it out in different molds and dusted them with icing sugar. I cut down (same as recipe minus 1 big tablespoon) on the shortening used because the dough became too buttery and only used half of the egg/milk mixture becasue the dough looked as if it were to turn too sticky. I used almond essence for flavoring and added some cinnamon to the dough. Overall, a nice treat! Not difficult to make!

Nice easy to make...did it in the pressure cooker. No tomato sauce, so used one fresh tomato and paprika for color.

Secret Ingredient Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
Delicious and easy to make. I used fresh chopped tomatoes and two bay leaves, in addition to the dark coco powder...the large jalepeno was added for subtle heat TIP: leave as one piece and do not open, this way the taste and not the heat is released from the pepper. Little ones may now enjoy this recipe too!

Moussaka

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
Excellent, easy recipe. Tasted wonderful. I didn't add the egg to the meat mixture, because I like the crumbly meat texture...think Greek style sloppy Joe! Enjoy! Oh, and adding some fresh herbs on top, what was put into the meat sauce, gives it a nice finishing. Some cinnamon gives it an aroma to die for!

Chilean Potato Pie (Pastel de Papas)

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Great recipe which lends itself to more creativity! I added sliced green olives, cilantro, diced green hot chili, diced raw tomato and red onion. No egg in the mash...two levels are super yummy! I also put in lima beans with canned corn...great meal with lots of leftovers! Enjoy!

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
I made these this morning with my toddler. Easy and quick to put together. I add bee pollen granules for extra health. And an extra egg because my batterr was too thick...perhaps it was because didn't use pastry flour but instead ww all purpose flour. Otherwise all directions followed. Now I am experimenting by cooking the batter in my moulinex panini press...they came out like panini pressed pancakes...tastes relish but not a risky waffle! Five stars for a wonderful recipe...and I just found out a new way to cook light fluffy pancakes. Awesome!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
wow, so easy to do and so yummy to eat! i always have used the boxed mix (never thinking there would be a significant difference in taste) well, the economic crisis has us all looking for budget recipes...this one is the best! the taste is sooooooo different...i will NEVER use boxed again! thank you for grandma's recipe! (btw, i followed the the advice of sifting dry ingrediants 3 times, using all wet ingredients at warm temperature, and mixed the dry with the (warm) wet very lightly leaving lumps! great tips from the other reviewers! My addition: a pinch of vanilla!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
very yummy -- but i felt the dough was too dry (not as moist as Cinnabon's)...next time i will take the advice of another reviewer -->don't skimp on the butter in the filling...and don't melt it either! make a paste with the butter/cinnamon,sugar filling...will definitely try these again!
