Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This was a long recipie to make... But worth the wait! the falafels came out well the ones that I coated in breadcrumbs, and some i dusted with flour held together better than the ones i did not. I added 1/2 stalk celery, and 1/8 cup of sweetpepper to the mix. I used geram masala as it has in both corriander and cumin. For the sauce i used an alternate version, where i added 1 tsp lemon juice I clove garlic some parsly and cilantro to the sauce. YUmmy this is my "midnight" snack lol

Split Pea Soup without Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This is a great simple recipe. I did a bit of tweeking. Sauted onions, sweet pepper, garlic, chives, thyme, and celery in some evoo before adding the chicken stock ans peas. I also added a 1/4 teaspoon of geram masala. My soup was ready in under and hour as HINT: I SOAKED THE PEAS IN WATER OVERNIGHT!(2 times as much water as peas, throwing off the original water when i was ready to cook) this will help with cooking times and cause the peas to reach the desired consistency faster/more easily

Old Fashioned Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
This cake was OK. I had wayyyyy too much sugar in it. If i do it again i would cut the sugar for the topping in HALF! and maby use 3/4 cup sugar in the cake itself. I found the cake had an interesting constiency after being baked. It was not heavy at all nor was it dry but i cant say i really liked it. Both of my parents loved it and I found that the cake tastes better now it's 2 days old. Oh by the way I added in a little pineapple juice, 1/2 teaspoon lime juice to the eggs, a cap full of amaretto, and a bit of nutmeg and cinnamom to the cake to ensure there was no bland cake!

Really Basic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
this was terrible. Very sticky, hard to manage and the cookies spread wayyyy out and became very very flat, didnt like the texture of the first batch so i added 1/2 cup of oats which helped. I gave it 2 stars because my mom and dad liked them but these cookies do nothing for me!

Ginger Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
This was great becaue I was tired of the old Stir frys I had been doing for years. I gave the recipie 4 stars because i did not have some of the ingredients and thus made modifications. I added cayenne pepper instead of red pepper flakes. I also substituted cherry jam for plum sauce and I didn't add any sesame seeds. In terms of veggies i added bean sprouts. It turned out really well!
