Irish Champ

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
This is a classic irish champ recipe. Half my family is irish and it tasted just like any champ i've ever had. I think it's important for people to remember when they make these recipes, that classic irish fare usually consists of basic, and usually very inexpensive ingredients. It's not supposed to come out tasting like something you ordered at a 5 star resturant... it's pub food!

Ricotta Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
I've been making Ricotta Cake for quite awhile now, it's one of my husband's favorites. Recently I miss placed my recipe for it, and while trying to replace it came upon this version, and as far as i can tell it's identical to my previous one. However since it had been awhile since i last made this i wasnt thinking, and of course didnt properly read the recipe so i made the mistake of mixing all the ingredients at the same time... i was worried but decided to try it... it didnt turn out too bad and i would recommend this method for anyone who wants to avoid the "wet cake" texture. My mistake turned out a cake that was slightly more of a sponge consistency, but still retained the ricotta flavor, I perferr the traditional method but this "oops" was also good... and saved quite a few steps, all ingredients mixed in one bowl and then into the baking dish... alot less clean up too!

Grilled Sausages with Caramelized Onions and Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
yummm!!! I really like this fall themed recipe. I live in Germany so apples and sausage is in no short suppy and am always looking for delicious recipes that include both of them. Anyways I made a few little changes, I cooked the sausages in beer and then cut them lengthways and turned the heat up high which allows the beer to carmelize and crisps the outside of the sausages. I did the apple onion mixture as directed and served it on top of some mashed potatoes with the sausages on the very top. So so so so good!!

Bissara

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This is so good, and very versitile,as alot of other reveiwers mentioned if you let this thicken to a pasted it's a great spread, really tastes good on toasted pitas with some feta. But as a soup it's equally amazing. The only reason i'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because instead of water chicken broth is really essentail, it emboldens the flavors, and gives it a finished taste. Other than that this soup is perfect as is!

Coffee Icing

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
Wow! really great icing recipe! I added some cocoa powder in it to give it a deeper tone, made it as directed and it came out a bit thin, but that was perfect for what i was using it for... drizzled over chocolate filled crossionts, it makes a pretty presentation and looks like you did alot of work. Thanks for this, it's really yummy!

Cilantro Egg Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
Just made this... changed it alot though. Only used onion and none of the other veggies, i also didn't use the mustard or the citrus juices. I just threw in lots of cilantro, mayo, salt, pepper, and couple dashes of hot sauce. I guess what i'm saying is this was a great starter recipe to play around with!

Espresso Bark

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
Awsome!!! The white chocolate bar I bought was pretty hard to crush though so I also melted that down in the microwave and drizzled it ontop rather than pressing it in chunks, just as good!! Thank you for this great and easy recipe!!!

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
I gave this four stars, because while I feel like this would be an ok recipe as written, I really think it's more of a starter recipe. The mixtures of flavors in this are great, I just feel like it was missing a few things such as fresh cilantro and avacoado for garnish, also instead of the lemon i used lime, and finally i slow cooked the chicken in a broth and hot sauce mixture before adding it to the soup. Overall I think this was a great recipe, just needed a little tweaking for my personal tastes

Cranberry Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
I wasn't really a fan of this, and I really truly wanted to be. I may try again next time I have extra cranberries on hand, the texture and flavor combined was what really didnt do for me, but I'm willing to give it a second chance, maybe with some tweaking it could be good, I feel like it has alot of potentail!

Fried Cabbage II

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
Really good cabbage recipe!! I misread the directions, well, more like didn't read the directions and after cooking the bacon, used a tab of butter to deglaze the pan and then continued to follow the recipe as written. Turned really yummy.

Naan

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
This is SO good, and even though it's "indian flatbread" it goes great with a variety of meals!! Also despite the recipe calling for it to be cooked on a grill ( which is traditional, and i think adds to the flavor) it can so easily be made on a grill pan or i like to use and egg pan; makes the perfect size and shape! Sugesstion: alot of other reveiwers said that the recipe called for too much flour, first time i made this i cut it down to 3 cups,that was not enough flour, the dough came out really wet, 3 and half cup seems to work perfect!

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
SO GOOD!!! I had to change it up a bit due to what i had in the house. I didn't have any sour cream so i followed all the other directions and subsituted a little evaporated milk and a drop of sherry for the sour cream, it turned out great. This soup really does give the warmth and heartiness of eastern european cooking...delish! I can't wait to make this again, i'm thinking subbing creme fraiche for the sour cream will give it an even more authentic euro flavor.

Maharaja Curry

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
Really good curry. I made this vegetarian and served it over brown rice. It was healthy and good tasting. I had alot of leftover sauce so i used it the next day, added some chicken broth and made a soup out of it. It tunred out great. All things considered this was a really great recipe!

Meatballs with Raisins and Honey

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
This was okay, but like other reveiwers i felt like it was missing something. I tried adding some allspice and it seemed to just enhance the sweetness, maybe something to had a bit og spiciness to contrast with the sweet would work better. Play around with it, and it could be great.

Gourmet Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
YUMMY! I'm always on the lookout for different takes on classics, and this is fantastic! Like alot of other reveiwers suggested I added bacon ( i think this really finished the recipe) and also becuase i didn't have any cheddar in the house i used colby-jack instead ( tasted great. Try this recipe, you won't be dissapointed!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
I'm a North Carolinian, and this is REAL SWEET TEA! I would have never thought of the baking soda, that was a stroke of genuis!! Takes the bitterness out, and really is what MAKES the tea!!! Awsome, thanks for the tip!!

Grenadian Spice Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
This a GREAT recipe!Perfect for "cake" people and non "cake" people ( being one myself!) I made a few changes based on some other reveiws. Used evaporated milk in place of the reg. ( adds creaminess and moisture)and since i had no limes in the house had to use some bottled lime juice in place of the zest.Also upped the spices, by adding the amount written on the recipe and then adding an extra half of those amounts. I was going to make an icing or glaze to go with this, but once i tasted it with some powered sugar on top, it was all over... it was too good as is to mess with any further!! I LOVE this recipe!! Perfect!

Broccoli Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
This was good... not great... but good. This is the perfect recipe for when you have ingredients to use up or limited ingredients in the house. I like it alot, but wasn't blown away.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
What can I say, other than WOW! So easy and so good!! I can't even begin to express how much I love this recipe! I had alot of unsalted peanuts ( bought on accident) and they worked out perfect. I also discovered with my second batch which didnt turn out quite as golden as I wanted that even if it's begun to get fairly hard you can pop it back in the microwave for a few minutes to brown it up, be careful though if you've already added the baking soda, you've got to watch it!!

Vegan Curried Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
Maybe it was just me but this recipe did not work out for me at all. The rice needed alot more h20 than called for and the flavors were totally overpowering. Maybe i will try this again to see if it was me or the recipe, but for now i don't think this is for me!
