Raspberry Chocolate Supremes

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
My friends really enjoyed these bars and all asked for the recipe. I would have liked the crust to have been a little less crumbly. More or less exactly what I had in mind when I was looking to make raspberry bars - I made them again, but used chocolate chip cookie dough as the crust. Delicious and chewy.

Dolmas (Stuffed Grape Leaves)

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I hate to say it, but these were pretty dissapointing. To be fair though, the excellent reviews may have given me higher expectations than I should have started with. Maybe there is a better way to prepare them than to cook the rice and then steam them? Is it okay to prepare the filling fully cooked and then wrap the leaves?

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
disappointed by this recipe. It tastes like shortening, not butter. It gets two stars because it has a frosting consistency which would at least get one by in a jam - meaning, it will lay on a cake and look like fluffy frosting. But it is not good for a birthday cake for someone one likes. And it is does not help the reputation of the person who makes it as a good cook. Like I said, disappointing.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
Warning: This is NOT a rich chocolaty cake. Do not be fooled by descriptions and reviews. It is very moist and fluffy and lovely, but it is not richly chocolaty. If you are looking to make a rich chocolate cake and you make this one, you will be disappointed. It is, however, a lovely moist cake.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
This recipe is delicious! I have made it a couple times because it was so good the first time. I used chicken breasts, which came out juicy and tender. I did add garlic and sliced 2 small onions very thin with a mandolin and draped them over the whole top layer of the chicken. I served it with basmati rice. Again, Delicious!

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
Delicious, not intimidating! I, like others, found it works best to mix the egg with the wet ingredients rather than alone with the flour. When I mixed them alone with the flour the batter and the finished product were lumpy. I found the most success - soft, foldable crepes - when I put a little butter in the pan before each one, or sometimes every third one. This is using Rachael Ray non-stick cookware which it will not stick to w/o butter, but w/o the butter they were sometimes hard and brittle.

Belgian Christmas Cookies

These almondlichious cookies will melt in your mouth. Be prepared to make two pans if you are anywhere near an almond lover.

Easy Fusilli with Tomato Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
This is a very good dish I will make again! Modifications: I used long fusili and topped the pasta with pieces of grilled chicken. I added kalamata olives and a couple splashes of red wine to the sauce as other reviewers suggested.

Vegetable Biryani

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
Very good recipe. After reading reviews I made the following changes: did not soak rice did not add cloves because it was not in my spice drawer: did not add chili powder Used mixed frozen vegetables. served with sour cream and mango chutney which added a necessary spiciness that would probably have been there if I'd had chili powder.

Ground Beef Wellington

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This was a great recipe. I followed some of the other reviewer suggestions, such as using onion soup mix. And the campbell's golden mushroom soup in the sauce. I'm looking forward to making them again, but stuffing them with beef and mushrooms, or with ground turkey and dried fruit. So many possibilities, so excited about this convenient little meat package :)

Rosemary Mashed Potatoes and Yams with Garlic and Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This recipe is pretty good and shows a lot of potential. I found the leftovers to be tastier, probably b/c the potatos had a day to absorb the garlic taste. I also melted extra stretchy cheese on top of them when I microwaved them. Excellent. I think for the future, I would add a lot more delicious roasted garlic to the amount of potatos. Really appreciate this recipe b/c I've been looking for an alternative to plain white (starchy) mashed potatos.

Carrot Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
These were super! Very pleasant flavor, very flavorful! I did only use half of the breadcrumbs, as suggested by others. I also held the patty in one hand, and sprinkled the crushed cereal on, then turned it on to the other hand and sprinkled crushed cereal on the other side rather than dipping. When cooked, they were delicious, firm, flavorful patties! My husband was impressed by them too.

Cheesy Quinoa Pilaf with Spinach

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
I didn't actually have quinoa, but I did make this recipe using Barley (I know, I know, different family and everything). I also used frozen spinach rather than fresh, which worked just fine. It was very delicious, and I'm looking forward to trying it with Quinoa soon! The sunflowers made it nutty and the gouda made it smoky. Yum!

Fresh Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
This salad is healthy and delicious! Usually raw onions bother my husband and I, but the vinegar must have neutralized them. We both enjoyed this healthy side.

Vegan Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
I always cook it for 30 min and place it directly in the fridge. It is golden brown on top and firms up. I have made this several ways - thick with coconut, peanut buttery, adding chocolate syrup. Often I end up putting in extra maple syrup. I have loved this recipe for years. It was even a huge part of my identity my freshman year of college. I made at least one a week and often brought it to the dinning hall to share. (While Salisbury University did a great job on meals, there wasn't much in the way of vegan desserts in 2001)

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
This was good, but not amazing. Maybe I will try to make it again and make everything about the breadcrumb/pecan topping finer.
