Almond Maple Granola

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
Love it! I add a few drop of maple extract to add more oomph to the maple flavour without adding more syrup. I use about 1/4 cup of maple syrup when I double up the recipe and 1/4 cup of brown sugar. I find that's still plenty sweet for me! My favorite granola recipe ever! Love experimenting with adding different nuts, seeds and fruit to the mix. This never ever lasts long in my house, I made a batch yesterday and I already have to think about making more.

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
This is a family staple. Best thing about being Arabic is the food... my god! Juddrah is one of my childhood favs! One type, caramelize the onions as dark as you can without burning. The deeper you caramelize them the more delicious the end taste is. Sour cream is a no. Yoghurt is a yes. We eat everything with plain yoghurt and this is one of those dishes that is out of this world with yoghurt, salt, and a side of a cucumber salad. Keep in mind, your whole house will reek when you cook this, so make sure you have good ventilation!!!

It was okay. I expected more from the recipe. I will probably make it again, but not anytime soon.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
best chocolate chip cookie recipe bar none. Used it as a base for a cookie pizza and it was perfect! My 7 year old nephew called me the best baker in our family. Why? Make these cookies and you'll know why! That's why!

Best of the Best Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
They were okay. I used Cake and Pastry flour and made sure to beat in a lot of air into the batter when I added the eggs. Came out Light and fluffy, but really they didn't taste like anything special. I would not have labeled them "The Best of the Best" I would called them "Better than Decent Blueberry Muffins"

Bean & Pasta Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
This soup turned out perfectly. The funny thing is I had all these old hamburgers in my freezer that I had no intention of eating. Instead, I used them in this recipe. The soup was really good and I plan on making it again.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
Everything that I could have hoped for in a peanut butter cookie. Bake no more than 10 minutes and let rest on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes when they come out of the oven. I can't stop eating them!!

Great recipe! Worked like a charm. I didn't make any adjustments or changes. Tastes much better than store bought tortillas.

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Worked like a charm. Best marinate I've tried off of All Recipes for Chicken. Flavourful, moist and everything I could have asked for in a marinade. Made as directed, seared the chicken in a skillet at high heat until dark brown on the sides and finished in the oven.

Turkey Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
Definitely a keeper recipe! I sautéed an onion first and added in my chopped turkey then set aside. But, everything else was the same and it worked marvelous! So happy I found this recipe and so sad I don't have any turkey left. *sigh*

Wheat Crackers

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
loooove this recipe. Perfect base recipe allows for infinite experimentation! I make it a rule to substitute veggie broth for the water, and I add in a little extra olive oil. It makes the crackers tasty and crisp.

Cheese Puffs (Gougeres)

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
This recipe really worked well. I read the one review ahead of me who said they turned into cookies, and I have to admit that mine didn't do that. The only thing that was confusing was the matter of the eggs. You're going to separate and reserve 1 egg. The egg yolk you will mix with 2 Tablespoons of milk to make the glaze, and the white you're going to beat into the mix. When you incorporate the eggs, do so one at a time. Ensure that you mix them all very well after each addition. When I piped them out, I just used a Ziploc bag that I cut a 1/2 inch tip off one corner then piped them out. Don't flatten them, make nice little mounds. I also added a pinch of baking powder just to ensure they puffed up. It works everytime. I'm too much of a puss not to do that! Happy Baking!

Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
I don't own a bread machine and it was still an excellent bread! To make this bread the conventional way: Proof yeast in the warm water with honey (I heated the honey in the microwave for 30 seconds) Combined all the dry ingredients including flour, flax and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. Melted the butter an added that to the flour alongside the yeast. Combined and then kneaded the bread for 10 minutes or until the dough was smooth and my arms were about to fall off. Set to rise in greased bowl for 1.5 hours or until doubled in size. Punched it. Transferred dough to a greased bread pan, covered and let rise again for 20 minutes. Baked in a 350 oven for about 30 minutes. Removed from pan and if the bottom wasn't golden I flipped the bread and put it back in the oven until golden. Removed, let cool on wire rack and now I'm enjoying it as we speak. So far best whole wheat bread ever!
