Easy Peachy Cobbler Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
Ok, a few changes were needed. There was too much syrup so I drained the syrup into a bowl, mixed in a teaspoon of cornstarch and a teaspoon of cinnamon and half a teaspoon of cloves as well as the sugar. I added it back to the peaches in the baking dish, making sure to stir them well. Then to the topping, I added 1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal, 1/2 cup chopped pecans,a half teaspoon of cinnamon and a tablespoon of brown sugar. I also used non-fat milk as I didn't have any buttermilk on hand. Bake as directed, adjusting cooking time for the type of pan used (glass dishes need more cooking time).

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
These were really, really good. I made a few small changes to reduce the fat/sugar content: used reduced fat graham crackers (about 16 crushed up), reduced fat peanutbutter and I reduced the amount of sugar to 2 cups and used 2/3 cup melted margarine instead of the butter. I also used equal parts of milk chocolate chips and semi-sweet chips for the chocolate layer and topped 1/2 the batch with finely chopped pecans and shredded coconut.

Jamaican Beef Patties

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
This recipe is good but I'm only giving it 3 stars because its not really Jamaican. Its more of a curried empanada rather than the spicy beef patties that Jamaica & the Bahamas are known for. Reduce the curry in the dough and add a bit of saffron. In the meat filling, use the red curry, not the yellow. The red curry is the hotter curry and that is what gives the patties the 'bite' that island food is known for. Add a bit of finely chopped onion to the meat when cooking. Also, cooking the meat with a bit of jalapeño is done sometimes as well and then when thoroughly cooked, the jalapeño is discarded or pulsed with the meat before being sealed within the pastry. Lastly, the pastry recipe definitely needs to be doubled to yield 10 normal sized patties. This is a great starter recipe and one worthy of being in your box as it leaves all kinds of filling experiemntations open to the imagination.
