Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
This is the best! What a hit at our Christmas party! It was exactly like what we had in New York in Little Italy. Be prepared to have ingredients for a second batch on hand!

Chaat - Dahi Batata Puri

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
This is a great start! Making life more simpler, use canned garbanzo beans, drained, there isnt much taste difference. Use good quality yogurt, not the "No Fat" version. I increased the ginger, freshly grated, to 2-3 tsp. I buy the authentic chips from the Indian store and only mix up some of the Chaat with the chips as wanted - dont mix it all at once as it does have to be eaten right away to maintain the soft and crunchy textures. Use fresh Cilantro not dried. I didnt mash the potato but left it in small chunks, adds to the interesting texture differences! Yum Yum !

Soccer Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
This was the best! Served it for a crowd of 40 and they loved it. Same type of salad as the coleslaw and Ichi Ban but this had more of a kick. Two heads of lettuce is not too muck either. Enjoy!

Dessert Nachos

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
Fantastic sweet and very fun dish! Made it for our Fiesta night and the kids along with the adults loved it! It was a nice change after the spicy Mexican dinner. I did double almost everything as we like our sweets a little runnier. Also, if your dish burnt, it's not the recipes fault, I'd say it was the operator's fault! Put down your margaritta and watch the broiler!!

Authentic Thai Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Very Good - authentic to a degree. DO NOT use lime zest instead of the Kaffir leaves they are very important to the flavor and freshness of the soup. I started with Chicken Broth, sauteed onion, lots, red pepper in a garlic ginger paste available at your local Indian store. Used a red curry paste, sauteed with the onions and red pepper, really brings out the flavor. Use an authentic Asian palm sugar melted in water. Use equal amounts of coconut milk and chicken stock. The soup does not need to age, make today, eat today. Ground lemongrass is available in most Asian markets, making the taste more concentrated than using the stalks. Good soup tho!

Moussaka

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
This was very good except it needed to be tweaked alot with the meat sauce. I doubled the spices, added more salt and garlic. It was imperative to have the cinnamon and nutmeg taste come through, so definitely make this the night before, then taste in the AM. Lots to clean up too! Thanks tho, Gayle Calgary Alberta

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
Fantastic! This rivaled my girlfriends much sought after fudge whose recipe is a family secret! She was impressed with it as well. I stirred the 6 minutes and it turned out fantastic three times! I gave it to many friends and they all wanted the recipe. One batch I did not stir it the entire time and it wasnt as smooth as the other two batches. Thanks!

Meatball Orzo Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
Great soup! We added more spice to the broth, Maggi and Worcestershire to spice it up. We used Danish meatballs. We added the orzo just prior to serving so it wasn't mush! Great thanks!

Honey Mustard Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
This recipe has potential. We found that the cumin overpowered the carrots giving them an odd taste. We recommend trying the sauce without the cumin first.

Moussaka

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
We were not impressed with the results. The meat portion of the dish is good, I added more cinnamon and more bechamel sauce to cover the top properly. Do not over cook the eggplant prior to layering. Cut thick slices and we baked the eggplant rather than fry it.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Great recipe, pizza coniseurs in my family loved this. To extend the I tripled it by adding 1 15oz can of drained chunky tomatoes and tripled the rest of the recipe, except the dried red pepper falkes, only added 2 tps and omitted the cayenne and water and only 3 tbs honey. The extra garlic was yummy.
