Bubble Tea

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2013
This recipe was fine, except I add sugar to the boiling water so it cooks into the pearls (haven't tried this with honey yet). Also, I think it's worth noting that though this doesn't taste quite like your local bubble tea spot, your local spot probably sells a powdered mix. This is healthier, and certainly not limited to the chai mix. Black tea and earl grey are two of my favs.

Black Bean, Corn and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
I added cayenne pepper to make it a little spicier, and only used about a half cup of broth (which was still a little too much). It turned out great. Good with rice or ramen noodles too. Someone recommended lime, and i'd agree, otherwise omitting the sugar and/or adding extra chili powder. I did taste it before adding the sugar, and it was great. It seems the sugar killed all the good flavors, and really changed the taste (which was why I added the cayenne & extra chili powder afterwards). I see many chili recipes with sugar, so i guess it's just preference. Still a great healthy & quick recipe.

Genmai-cha

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Thanks for posting this. I used to drink brown rice tea a lot when I worked in the city, but haven't been able to find it anywhere else. I followed this recipe (double the rice, minus the green tea) and it's perfect. I just threw the rice in the coffee maker (with filter) and it came out okay, but I think stovetop would pull the flavor out better. This looks like a great gift idea too, easy & inexpensive. Thanks for sharing :D

Russian Pancakes - Blini

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
I tried this twice, but it didn't work out either time. I used evaporated milk + water, then used just water (using less as suggested by a reviewer). Maybe that made it too thin. I added a little flour halfway through the first batch - that kept them in one piece, but they were 'eggy', and not at all crisp. The only way I got this to work was to throw them out and make crepes instead. I will suggest that for easier flipping (if anyone's been lucky enough to get that far), you should grease the pan with butter instead of oil, sliding a little under the blini just before its ready to be flipped. For the author's sake, I'll try this again when I have the milk it's calling for, but I really think the measurements on the ingredients need to be tweeked for this to work.

Steamed Egg (Chawan Mushi)

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
Definitely calls for too much broth, but aside from that, this was delicious, and fast. Versatile, too - I didn't use the sake or mushrooms, but used chicken, onions and a little cumin. Great recipe!

Feta Pesto

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
This recipe was tasty, definitely a keeper. I tried it on pizza dough, but I didn't like how the flavor and texture of the bread took away from the pesto. I think pasta would be much better with it, maybe even potatoes. I didn't have sun-dried tomatoes, so I also added more olive oil, and used sunflower seeds instead. Great recipe, thanks for sharing.

Easy Haupia

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
I love this recipe. It's new to me, so I don't know how "authentic" it is, but I found it addictive. I've been making it every week since I tried it. I gave only 4 stars because it needed much more coconut flavor. I feel like adding shredded coconut, but maybe using sweetened milk, as was suggested would work better. I will definitely make this again, it's a great base for a dessert, if nothing else. Thanks for the recipe!

Chicken Dumpling Strips

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
These were easier than I expected. I didn't add seasoning to the dough to avoid the extra salt, and I needed a little more flour if I was going to roll it, otherwise this recipe was perfect. I also didn't need to roll it out. I just took a ball of it, and used my fingers to flatten and tear each piece. They come out fine this way (not perfectly shaped, obviously), and it was faster & cleaner than rolling. Light & delicious. Thanks!

Crispy Orange-Almond Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I figured the baking soda might be a typo on this, so I used baking Powder. That seemed to work - I didn't have to flatten them, I dropped spoonfuls and they spread fine. I didn't have/want orange flavor, so I replaced the OJ and flavor with almond liqour (about 3 tbsp). Flavor was okay, but I think the liqour made them chewier than they would have been. They did take about 15 minutes at 375 like someone said. They will be VERY delicate right out the oven, so you must let them cool on a rack like the recipe says to actually get them crispy. Overall, I think it's an okay recipe.

Snoogy Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
This recipe is perfect for a quick dinner when you don't really feel like cooking. It tastes a little like sweet n' sour, but not quite - this was more aromatic & savory. I have some garden veggies - zucchini, tomato, etc., and if I do this again I'll add them in to make the meal more complete. Also, I'd shorten the cook time to maybe 40 min, and/or take it out immediately, so it's less dry. Thanks for sharing!

Chi Chi Dango Mochi

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
This recipe is even quicker and easier than it sounds. I followed this recipe almost exactly, and had no problems. I used 1/3 cup less sugar, and it came out just sweet enough. When baking, I would suggest taking off the foil for the last 10 minutes, Or keep the foil up so it won't touch the mochi. Otherwise the foil sweats onto the mochi and makes it soggy. I didn't have vanilla or color, so it was a little bland, but I dusted it with powdered sugar & cocoa instead of starch - worked out fine. It seems easy to make flavor changes to this, so I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Roomali Roti

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
I didn't need to double-flip these like others did...just let it rise and brown on the first side (about 2 min) then flip and brown the other side (about 1 min).I added 1 tsp garlic powder for flavor, which it needed. Rolling these was easy enough without too much effort, but it was hard to get them as thin as they should have been. I served it with curried goat, and made the roti skins while the goat was simmering. I do prefer the version with split peas ground in, but I imagine that would be much more time-consuming... Overall, this is a great, fast recipe. Thank you for sharing!

Turkish Style Eggs

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I'm not a huge fan of eggs, especially poached, so this recipe was impressive. I used sour cream instead of yogurt, and cayenne instead of paprika. I used only half the fresh garlic, and it was still a bit too strong for me. The eggs were great, but the sauce was delicious, definitely the best part. If I do it again, which I probably will, I'll use just a little garlic powder. Great recipe, thanks for sharing it!

Cheese Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
I see a hundred recipes for this, but this is the best version - although I use a whole can of cream corn (or more) whenever I make it. The layering brings out the flavors better, and making it without the whole corn kernels makes it much creamier and a little sweeter. Great recipe!
