French Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
This is an easy french bread recipe, just right for personalizing. I use this as my standard Italian "soft" dinner bread. I do add approx 1 T of softened butter while it is in the KA. Its so predictabe that I walk away from it while the KA is doing its job. I have spread diced green chili and chedder on it before rolling (to go with chili), as well as smashed roasted garlic and asiago, as well as having added garlic powder, Italian herbs, EVOO to the dough. I have yet to have this fail- regardless of what I do to it! I also makes the best pizza dough, rolling it out after the first rise and baking on a stone. Thanks for sharing a great and versitle recipe. I use this so much I don't even have to look it up anymore.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
This was so easy to put together, and so good. Growing up "rice pudding" was left over rice baked with an egg custard. This was so much better, and creamy. I used left over rice. I only had low fat milk, and blended the egg with 1/4c. light cream, omitting the butter. I cooked this while I was making dinner, let it cool and served it with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Next time I will mix in chopped dried apricots instead of raisins, and top it with toasted almonds. Very good recipe for the imagination! The dogs wont be getting left over rice anymore! Thank you for a quick and fabulous recipe.

Sticky Date Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
My husband and I now live in Ireland. This was excellent! I no longer own a food processor, so I simply "cooked" the dates until they were smooth. Having read lots of Sticky Pudding recipes, I desired a thicker sauce. I cooked the sauce to more of a caramel. Removed the puddings from the pan, placed a small amount of sauce in the individual dishes, placed the puddings and poured the sauce over them and let them sit. They were placed back into the oven prior to serving to warm them and the sauce. Exactly how they are "done" over here. Next time I will serve them with a traditional custard as well. Thank you for sharing an easy and great recipe.

Oatmeal Pancakes I

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
From the dining room, they yell to the kitchen "these are REALLY good!" Using the advice of other reviewers, I up the milk 1/4c. They were perfect. I knew we would be out of syrup, so to the batter for the last two I added one more teaspoon of sugar, some vanilla and cinnamon. I sprinkled raisins over the batter as soon as it was poured into the pan. They were like eating soft, warm oatmeal cookies for breakfast! Thanks for sharing this keeper.

Shish Tawook Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
WOW- juicy, tender, tasty, and authentic! I marinated the chicken breast strips for 24 hours before cooking them under the broiler. Normally, I am not a big fan of skinless chicken, especially the breast. This recipe will be made again and again with the oh so good for you skinless breast. The only changes I will make next time, and just my personal preference, will be to up the amount of spice, but thats just me. The friends who shared this as part of our Middle Eastern dinner party, and have traveled that part of the world, said the taste was perfect. The left overs were incredible cold the next day.Thank you for sharing an authentic recipe.

Nanaimo Bars III

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
There are a "bunch" of North Americans working here in Ireland. Our friends from BC were talking about Nanaimo bars, and feeling a little homesick. I made these for dessert, as a surprise for them. They were amazed. Said they were perfect! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. And helping my friends feel a little less homesick.

Keerti's Karwari Prawns

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
WOW! I love coconut shrimp and this was very, very good. Reading other reviews I simply used unsweetened flaked coconut and added a little water once the shrimp were added to the pan (to make up for the moisture loss of using dried coconut). Very quick and tasty. I served it with Indian side dishes. My husband finished his plate and exclaimed "that was great, time to lick the plate, good!" This is so not my man, to give you an idea of just how good this dish is. Thank you for sharing this dish. This will take the place of my Korma as the star of my Indian dinners.

Artichoke Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
This is great! I used 1/2 mayo, 1/2 cream cheese, and garlic. Of note: recipe calls for canned artichoke hearts, NOT marinated ones. This is probably the problem some have had with the "grease" issue. Canned artichoke hearts are in lightly salted water only, no oil. I think next time I will add chopped spinach as an extender. I served it with a rustic roasted garlic loaf. There was nothing left! That speaks for itself.

Fiesta Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
My husband is a vegetarian, so after reading others reviews here are my "tweaks". I like to stand my peppers up, I just think it looks nicer. To the 1/2c cooked rice, three thawed, diced veggie patties (the kind that imitate beef), 1/4c diced onion, 2 green onions finely sliced, 1 jalapeno finely diced, 1T chili powder, 1 can whole plumb tomatoes, drained and crushed,salt and pepper stuffed the peppers upright, baked covered for 50 min, removed cover, topped with pepper cheese and returned to oven until melted. I served these with a spinach and tomato salad dressed with an orange vinaigrette. My honey said "these are really good, let's remember this recipe" Thanks for the inspiration!
