Southern Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
I love this dish. I have never been in the south, am not familiar with southern cooking, but this rice is amazing. Serve with lots of pickled everything (pickled cucumbers, marinated tomatoes, green and black olives, giardiniera salad, pepperoncini peppers)...

Glazed Lemon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
I really liked this recipe. However, since many reviewers said that the lemon taste was not very strong, I deseeded one lemon and then pureed it in the food processor (peel and all). Then I decreased the amount of milk to 1/2 cup to account for the additional liquid from the lemon. This made the lemon flavor stronger, and for those who are afraid that the pith is bitter, it's not -just make sure to deseed.

Prune and Raisin Filled Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
Unlike the other reviewers, I had never heard of these cookies before, and did not have a sentimental/nostalgic reason for making them, so I was approaching these without any expectations. However, after having made these cookies, I fell absolutely in love with them! The recipe is perfect (the dough is absolutely beautiful, and is easy to work with), the crust is flavorful, crumbly but soft, the filling is just sweet enough, and the nuts add another texture dimension. The recipe makes a bunch, and after 5 days I only have a couple of cookies left (keep in mind this is just 4 people eating), they are that good! I would definitely recommend this recipe to everyone, even those who have never heard of these before. They are absolutely amazing with milk! ***These keep better out in the air, instead of in an airtight container since in a container they get a little soggy because of the filling.

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
Absolutely delicious! I used more almonds (and almond extract) and less sugar, but it was still amazing!!!

Eggplant Appetizer

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Wow. Really good! I am from the former USSR, and while in the area I lived we make this dish differently, I tried this recipe, and it was so much less work than my usual recipe, and the flavor was so different, even though the ingredients are very similar. I recommend everyone to try it! Really good!!! UPDATE!!! I have found that the longer this sits, the better it tastes!!! In fact, don't bother eating it the day you make it - you will only be disappointed. Further, when I was in a pinch one time, I have substituted canned plain tomato sauce (not pasta sauce) for the tomatoes, and actually like the tanginess of this version better. I definitely recommend it. I have not stopped making my traditional Russian Eggplant Caviars, but this has definitely earned a place on our permanent eggplant rotation.

Garlic Feta Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Very good dip - I whipped it up with a beater rather than blender, so my texture was different, but the taste was really good :)

Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
Amazing! I didn't peel the eggplant, but just cut into small chunks after roasting, with skin still on. Added just a bit more of yogurt and then some sour cream and water to make slightly saucier. But otherwise amazing!

Buckwheat Blinis

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
"Maslenitsa" is a week-long celebration where no meat is eaten, but all sorts of blinis, pancakes, and the like, with all sorts of vegetarian and dairy fillings. As for the recipe, it's pretty authentic.

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
From all the reviews, I thought this would be something truly outstanding. But it turned out to be just pasta with bacon and eggs - not one of those cases where ordinary ingredients make something extraordinary.

Triple-Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
This turned out to be more of a mac and cheese casserole rather than creamy macaroni & cheese. The only difference was that I used regular milk instead of condensed because I was out. It was still pretty delicious, though!

The best meatloaf I ever ate, and I forgot to add the mozzarella!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
I substituted apple sauce for 2/3 of the oil and put less sugar. The recipe was still fantastic!

Pumpkin Roll II

What an amazing and tasty recipe! My pan was bigger, so I made 1& 1/3 the recipe.

Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Since I didn't have pimentos, I used about 1/3 cup salsa instead and omitted the mustard and relish. Turned out pretty good, not stellar. But who expects stellar from tuna, anyway?

Quick Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
I listened to one of the reviewers about the cake being too sweet and added only about 2/3 cup sugar. As a result, the cake ended up having a definite soda aftertaste. Next time will use full cup. ***I have made these one more time now, and have decreased my rating to 3 stars because there is still a soda aftertaste (even though I doused the soda with the vinegar directly). It is not worth making unless you are truly short of ingredients or allergic. Otherwise stick to a recipe that includes eggs and milk.

Vegetable Ham Stew

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
This was ok - I was not too crazy about it, but it used up my leftoves. I didn't measure every single ingredient, but just eye-balled everything. I also added 2 medium potatoes and omitted the starch step. Added dried red chili pepper powder, as well as some parsley at the very end. OK

Strudel Dough

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
I made this recipe following the exact instructions, but the next time, I might add all the water at the same time (or at least more than 1/2) because the dough was a little dense (not very soft or pliable) and difficult to roll out. I tried rolling it out to be almost paper thin and was able to accomplish 1/16th of an inch for most if it, and was glad I did because one of the previous revieiwers was right when she said it can get pretty difficult to eat when thick. As it was, it was perfect. As for the fillings, I tried 1)ham and cheese 2)blue cheese dressing, chicken, and hot sauce 3) pepperoni and cheese. What i learned is that for this dough, the wetter the filling, the better the end result. My ham and pepperoni rolls were quite dry while my buffalo chicken roll was perfect - the tons of blue cheese dressing prevented drying out of the dough in the oven. As for the baking temperatures and times: I tried some strudels at 425 - not a good idea. The best seemed to be the ones at 350 for about 15-20 minutes - also, be sure to not let the strudels get too brown if you roll your dough out very thinly. A slight golden color is plenty.

Chicken Salsa Pizza

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
I love this recipe. Used my own crust and instead of cheddar (which kind of tastes a little wrong with salsa) I used pepper jack. With my changes, it's a 5, without them - only 4.

Sausage Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
I thought these were ok, but felt that the sweet croissant dough did not go very well with the salty and spicy sausage filling. Furthermore, my husband did not like it at all, and he is usually not very picky. Next time I make them, I will make sure to either use pizza dough or make my own dough.

Cream Puff Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
This recipe is amazing - never knew cream puffs were so easy to make. The dough turned out without a hitch - however, I didn't have the right size pan, so I just made couronnes (got the idea from a french cookbook) and then stuffed them with the filling (cut across and add filling). Oh, and my filling ended up having these tiny little lumps in it - maybe my cream cheese was cold, but it was delicious anyway. Update: I found that there was too much filling for the amount of pastry, but that is purely a personal preference.
