Steak Salad (Ranen Salad)

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
Great and very filling, even for my husband. I did make a few changes. I added a can of mandarin oranges and then toasted the walnuts with a 1/2 package ramen noodles in butter for the top.

Syrian Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
Great recipe! After reading reviews I set the oven at 500, and then flipped the loaves at 2-3 mins to brown both sides. Really fantastic. THANKS!

Apple Dumplings with Rich Cinnamon Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
Great recipe. Definitely use small apples though, wrapping them was a bit difficult. Not impossible, just difficult. I sliced mine in half horizontally instead of vertically which made them stand up nice and straight with no problem. Also gave me a nice well to put filling in without any fuss. I used pecans instead of walnuts, then toasted some peacans to add to my sauce - just because I like them.

Only made 2 chagnges - I used an entire pound of bacon (hubby is a bacon hound!), and added fresh diced tomato at the end. We really enjoyed this!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
I can hardly believe how good these are! This recipe definitely 16 instead of 12, but if youe want HUGE scones - make 12! I added 2 tsp cinnamon and 1 cup chopped pecans, then eggwashed the top and sprinkled cinnamon/sugar. So good!

Tourtiers (French Pork Pie)

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
I halved the recipe to make 1 pie for the 2 of us. Only change I made was a minor one, I left the potatoes cubed and didn't mash them. We loved it. The whole kitchen smells heavenly!

Cannoli Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Traditional cannolis are filled with a pastry cream and this is the wrong texture and flavor. The addition a high volume of chips and cherries and almonds created a pie with a lot of "stuff" in it and the filling tasted even more bland because of it. Freezing it made it hard as a rock but mere refrigeration made it runny. All in all, not something I will make again.

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Fantastic and easy! Only change I made was to use a jar of mild salsa in place of the tomatoes.

Peanut Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Used sesame oil instead of vegetable oil and it made a fantastic difference. Took the dressing from plain to wonderful.

Pork Medallions with Dijon Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
Really fantastic! I doubled the sauce to have extra to put on rice, and added a bit of fresh flatleaf parsley and rosemary. I think I will be serving this to my mother in law when they visit, and THAT'S saying something!! LOL

Cream of Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
Unbelievably good. I made this for Easter and it went down a treat. Be sure to get Cream of Coconut. It's in the drinks aisle of your supermarket, it is used to make Pina Coladas. Anyway, don't think you can sub out coconut milk because it's nothing like it. Also the can of Cream of Coconut I got 16oz so after I used it in the recipe I brushed the extra on each layer before frosting. Made for a bit of extra flavor as well as keeping the whole thing incredibly moist. I made a 3 layer cake (there is more than enough batter here to do that with) and I toasted about a 1/2 cup of the shredded coconut and sprinkled it evenly between the layers and on top.

English Trifle to Die For

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
The name is right, this Trifle IS to die for! And it really is easy to make too. I used a store bought Lemon pound cake, doubled the Custard recipe, used Strawberry jam and strawberries instead of raspberries. Still, those changes are relatively minor and this is a very well deserved five stars!

Lance's French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
Tried every French Onion Soup on this site and this is the best. I left out the wine and added 2 tsp beef boullion. Other than that I made this exactly ad written and was thrilled with the results. Thanks!

French Tartiflette

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
Used a whole pound of bacon, but other than that made exactly as directed and was it ever wonderful! Husband took leftovers to work the next day for lunch and everyone asked what he was warming up since it smelled so good. Thanks!

Famous Hot Fudge Topping

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
This recipe is worth every single calorie! Yes it is rich and sweet, but you also don't have to use as much as other toppings to get extreme flavor. It took me back to sitting at the fountain counter at Sanders as a kid. Thanks so much!
