Real Hummus

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
I have been using this recipe since I discovered it a year and half ago. It is perfect- though I do change it to taste. I use more Garlic- 3 or 4 cloves - and use the authors recomendation of cumin and less salt. I still only use 2tbsp of tahini, but they are heaping tbsps. I've tried to stray more from the recipe, but when i do it turns out awful. So i always have this recipe in hand when i want to be sure of making Good hummus.

Granny's Corn Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
I am extremely pleased with how these turned out. I waited until the resting period to read the other reviews, and was really nervous that these would be really dry. Even as I rolled them out, I found myself wishing I had a mexican grandmother to teach me how to do it right! But as each one was rolled, I got better at it, and found I didn't need any flour at all to roll them. I used spray cooking oil to fry them with. I did cut off the edges by tracing a plate with a knife before I fried them(I don't have a tortilla press) Maybe that helped with the dryness that I was afraid would happen. I will make these again, and maybe try adding some spice to see what happens.

Green Pea Poulourie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
I have never heard of, let alone make anything, like Poulourie. I was thrilled with these. they were surprisingly light with a nice crisp to them. I've made them twice, and even when I forgot salt the first time, I was excited to make them again. I like them better as a snack than a side or meal though.

Lentils And Spinach

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I will definitely make this again. I was very pleased, but I thought it could have a little bit more flavor. I might see if I can come up with more and/or different spices. I will also add more vegetables as recommended and make a meal with this.

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
We make this recipe all the time. The only change I've made is to omit the extra salt. so far nothing has gone wrong with it and it makes great leftovers.

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
I LOVE this recipe, and so does my 1yr old daughter. It has way more flavor than any ordinary pancake recipe, and is definately healthier. i used canola oil instead of butter, and oatmeal instead of wheat germ. i can't wait to try it with the wheat germ later on.

Lentil Chili II

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
This recipe was a great to work off of. we love tomatoes, so I halved the recipe except for the tomatoes and paste. I think that next time I will add even more tomatoes and carrots. i also used diced as opposed to crushed tomatoes. I might even think about adding other vegetables.

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
I just had to pass this wonderful recipe to my aunt and her friends. This has gotten amazing feedback from everyone I've fed it too, including my picky fiance. Don't forget to cover it with foil though, it makes it even better.
