Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
I absolutely loved this when I made it. I didn't use carrots and I think I used more cucumber. It's so delicious, really light, and somehow refreshing. I think it's the cukes and lemon juice. I think I could eat bowls of this stuff on it's own! It is definately a 'season to taste' type dish.

Amish Friendship Bread III

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
I just made my first loaf of Amish Friendship Bread with my first try at a Amish Friendship Starter. I followed a recipe I found here for starter and it's great. I think it will be even better as the starter matures, becomes a little bolder, but I love the soft taste of this bread. I pulled the loaf (I only have one 9x5" pan, so I used an 11x13". Shaped like a cake, but whatever. I'll get a second tomorrow!) and shared a piece with my husband and brother in law. We all had our eyes popping out of our heads. I didn't have vanilla extract and I added a tad more cinnamon, because I love it. Again, it's awesome! And I feel good about experimenting with it.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
While this recipe was good, I felt like it was a little dry and could use a little more ... something. I think it was mozzarella.

Homemade Tomato Sauce I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
I found this recipe works best with roma tomatoes. They're meatier and have less seedy parts. 12 roma tomatoes made just enough to serve 5. I added Italian sausage, chopped mushrooms, chopped artichoke hearts, and seasongings galore (oregano, parsley, sage, basil, bay leaves, tried to keep it simple). Don't be shy with the salt, it brings out the flavors! The great thing about tomato sauce is you can add almost anything you want and it will be great. This recipe is a base, experiment with it and have fun. Oh, and scoring the tomatoes with an X helped a LOT with the peeling!

Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
This recipe was awesome. I used about 2lbs each of lamb and beef, increased carrots and potatoes as most people suggested. I also added guinness, rosemary and a few other seasonings to taste. Thickened it with cornstarch toward the end. I started cooking at noon, dinner was ready by 6 and it was great. My dogs did not leave the kitchen for those 6 hours. And every time I went to stir the stew I nearly cried from joy it smelled so good.

White Ranch Macaroni

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I just made this dish and while it was good, I would use less asiago cheese next time. Unless you're wild for asiago, it's just a bit strong. I'd say 2 1/2 cups, maybe only 2. And increase the Ranch a bit to compensate. Maybe even substitute some of the asiago with another cheese, I don't know how mozzarella would do. Oh, and I used Italian bread crumbs and sprinkled some parmesan cheese on top. Good stuff. Just way too tart.
