Crepes

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I LOVE this crepe recipe! I tried a few from this site, and like this one the best. I usually use whole wheat flour for at least 1/2 of the flour called for (sometimes all whole wheat), and so I also use a little extra milk and oil - and them come out great! Thin, chewy, and tender - perfect! I've found that putting it in the fridge makes them better - not so puffy and hard to get off the pan, so if you have some time, DO refrigerate the batter! After sitting in the fridge, give it a gentle little stir by hand to redistribute the ingredients. Also, I also tried once using a gluten-free flour mix with soy milk to make it for a friend, and with a few slight tweaks in measurements - they were VERY good! ...can I just say again, I LOVE THIS RECIPE!! :)

Smoky Eggplant and Yogurt Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
Thanks for the recipe! This is an exotic and delicate treat. My husband and I recently moved to Tel Aviv, and when we went on our first Israeli date, I got something very similar to this and LOVED it! I am so happy to find a recipe for it so that I can enjoy it again and again. The smoked flavor is a little strong, and is somewhat unexpected especially as it is served cold - but it is very good! Don't be afraid to try it! It really makes this dish unique. The smoking instructions given here are great - I never knew how to do that - Thank you!!

Kielbasa Apple Kabobs

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
SO so good!! I know, it might look odd, but don't be afraid to try this recipe!! I like to be adventurous for others, and took this to a cook-out as the main dish for about 12 good friends - and they all loved it!! I about doubled it. I made a little bit of a different glaze, using apple and orange juice, soy sauce and some peach jam with a little brown sugar - pretty simple. (It's easy to change the glaze to your taste, so play around with it if you like, just keep the idea...) I also added some onions to the skewers. GREAT change of pace, and the sausage was really nice because it cooks SO quickly. We did not have ANY left-overs, and even the kids like them! I'm loving this recipe idea - thanks for sharing!

Cheese Garlic Biscuits II

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I loved these little biscuits enough to give them a "6", but I did make some changes, so I guess I'll have to go with a 4 or so... I used whole wheat flour to appease my conscience a little (because that makes them health-food, right..?), and in stead of brushing them with the garlic butter mixture, I just added garlic to the batter. These little babies were plenty buttery that way for me. I also used a little more cheese than was called for, and used sharp cheddar. I've gotta tell you - THEY ROCKED!! I could have eaten 10 - but reigned myself in at about 6. A real study in self-control, right..? I challenge you to do the same! Good luck, and enjoy!

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I finally decided to try making my own alfredo sauce, and picked this recipe. (And I'll never go back!) After reading a few other reviews, I doubled the recipe, and made just 3 small changes. 1) I didn't have quite enough heavy cream, so I used some half and half also. 2) While melting the butter in the saucepan, I added about 2 cloves of diced garlic. 3) I used only parmesan cheese. I LOVED THIS RECIPE!!! It was SO good! Scrumptious!! I'm craving it again just typing about it! :) It was easier than I expected it to be, and the results were fantastic!! The texture was great for me - definitely not too thin or watery as others' turned out. It was thick but smooth and creamy, and the flavor was rich and full, but not overpowering. I did take the advice of a reviewer not to add the egg yolks in directly, but to mix them with some of the sauce in a separate dish, and add it all back in together. Also, when adding any ingredient, I added it SLOWLY, while stirring. I'm SO glad I found and tried this recipe - I'll use it over and over - it got RAVE reviews around our table! Thanks for sharing! My alfredo-eating life has been changed!

Thai-Style Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
This recipe was great! It is very versatile, I like that the measurements of the ingredients can be adjusted to your preference (adjust the curry and chili sauce for level of heat). I didn't have the toasted sesame oil, or the rice wine vinegar on hand, and it was still very good! I served it over noodles, topped with chicken, water chestnuts green onions, red bell peppers, chopped peanuts, bean sprouts and cilantro. It got rave reviews at our dinner, and I've referred 2 people already to this recipe. Thanks for sharing it!
