Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
Excellent! I followed the recipe very closely, except making 6 instead of 9. They turned out GREAT! Far better than my first attempt a couple years ago...little hockey pucks. These are chewy, soft, tasty and pretty hassle free. Next time I'll add some flavors and spices. I just kept it really simple this time around. Oh yes, and my 6 bagels were HUGE. I think I'll make 8 or 9 next time. Might have been my yeast, and leaving them to rise for 40 minutes.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
absolutely DELICIOUS!!! I usually use a mix, but they stopped selling the good ones. This was fabulous, easy, and we scarfed it all up! Will DEFINITELY make this again. Oh yes, next time I'll add more spice. It needed it. I guess I'm used to a more pronounced curry flavor. It was quite mild.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
AMAZING!!! We loved it. I used 5 avocados, and we ate it all within the week. Used it on turkey burgers, in ham and cheese wraps, with chips, you name it!! Just delicious, and SOOO much better than any kind of store bought mix.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
Excellent recipe. I will make these again and again. They puffed up gorgeously, and they turned out so perfect. I used whole wheat flour and flaxseed, and they were great and tasty!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
As stated, this is a good 'base' recipe. Add other ingredients to 'spice it up'.

Spanish Mackerel

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
I ended up making a smaller batch - 2 fillets. I used the same 2 Tbsp of lemon juice, 1 Tbsp of olive oil, onion and paprika. I also added grated garlic. Just sprinkled salt and pepper on before covering with the sauce. They were AMAZING. Absolutely delicious. Served them with brown rice and garlic sauteed bok choy.

Applesauce Pork Loin

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
fabulously tender and moist - can't believe how great it turned out! I usually cover my roasts, and they still get dry. This is PERFECT.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
Amazing. Simply the BEST lasagna ever. I didn't even use ricotta cheese! I just mixed parm, mozz, parsley and egg and used that as the ricotta cheese mix. It was delicious! We ate tons for dinner, then had it for lunch the next day. Just amazingly good. This will be THE lasagna recipe for me forever.

Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Good base for making tzatziki. Along with everyone else, I was confused regarding the lack of cucumbers as an ingredient! I did follow the recipe...although I did not think olive oil was necessary. Also, 3 cloves of garlic would be intensely overpowering. I used 1 good sized one and grated it in. I also used dried dill (about a teaspoon - would definitely taste better with real dill!), a couple of finely chopped mint leaves, and a bit of onion grated in. For the cucumbers, I seeded and peeled 5 normal ones, grated them, then added salt (and a pinch of sugar) to help get the water out. I then took a filter/cheesecloth thing I had and squeezed that pile of cucumbers until they were all but dry. 5 big cucumbers shrank to about a cup! I definitely think adding cucumbers is necessary in order to call it 'tzatziki'...but hey, to each his own! All in all, good base to then adjust accordingly.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
Good recipe. I substituted applesauce for oil as well, and reduced the sugar just a bit. Used half whole-wheat, and added 1/2 C of diced apples, and 1/2 C of chopped walnuts. Made for tasty, healthy muffins!

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
Great salsa! A suggestion: I did not blend the ENTIRE batch. I blended half of it, and left the other half as it was. Turned out GREAT...still nice and chunky, but with enough 'juice' to make it go further and add a bit more depth to the salsa. I also used fresh (peeled and seeded) tomatoes, but come wintertime, I will used canned ones. I did have to substitute dried cilantro...sadly. It was delicious, but fresh cilantro is phenomenal. Great recipe!

Souvlaki

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
lovely. Not as flavorful as I had anticipated, and I followed it exactly (except for not grilling - had to use the oven). However, I served them with the pita recipe from this site as well as the tzaziki (sp?)sauce. Turned our delicious, but could have been more flavorful.

Chocolate Meringue Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
i used maybe a tablespoon of the butter and it turned out like I was hoping. reminds me of the frosting I used to make when i was a kid. i can't find the recipe now, but i used a double boiler, cream of tarter and egg whites. no butter. and so, although i didn't use the boiler or the c.o.t, it turned out fairly similar. i added grated chocolate instead of melting all that. worked great. just a nice frosting for a rich chocolate cake, not too sweet or buttery, which was what i was going for.
