Ethiopian Spiced Cottage Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
Interesting, but not for everyone. I love Ethiopian cuisine and my wife is an eater of average American tastes. I found this recipe interesting, but unbalanced in its flavors. While edible for me, I think there was too much ginger and the ground cloves "took over" the cottage cheese. I do not feel compelled to make this again. My wife did not care for this. I rate this two stars because this is not a recipe I would use UNLESS I was serving people with very tolerant and esoteric tastes. Cardamon, if you don't have it, is quite expensive. Now I am left wondering what else to do with it. On the plus side, it was original and it did look good on the plate. But this should be targeted towards a very particular audience.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
These shrimp were very popular. I think it was the hint of dijon mustard that made the difference. Would rate this 5 stars except for the amount of butter you have to use. But you cannot deny the shrimp taste fabulous.

Almond Broccoli Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
I served this to "vegetable haters" who positively raved over this recipe. What a great balance of flavors and textures! I have also made this with a baby carrot / broccoli floret mix, but the carrots take a bit more cooking time. BEST OF ALL? A very easy recipe. Also works with Splenda instead of sugar.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
I have been making roasted cauliflower for ages. On a lark, I tried this recipe. Fantastic. Truly the best cauliflower I've ever eaten. I think next time I will cut the garlic by 25%, but that's just because we like our garlic flavor to be subtle. I think the Parmesan cheese makes this recipe, although we used less because we are watching our cheese intake.

Onions in Raisin Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
I have made this recipe for several years. The flavors blend excellently, and it is quite easy. Adds a nice gourmet touch to holiday dinners.
