Dark Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
To give this a kick, I leave out the coffee n instead add 1 c water w/ 2 tspns raspberry or strawberry flavoring. It turns out tasting like a gourmet chocolate raspberry bar. Ive learned the hard way that I should mix the dry ingredients, set aside then add them to wet ingredients. Also like others I use buttermilk instead of milk n vinegar. Lastly the best temp for my 9x13 is 365F for 37min. Next time I'm gonna try almond flavoring w/ almonds on top n try for 35 min.

Roasted Root Vegetables With Apple Juice

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
I made this with 2 potatoes, cubed and 2 carrots, shredded, only. substituted homemade beef broth for white wine. Didn't measure but estimated the apple juice, broth, n butter. I added allspice & about 3 whole cloves. Put them in a pyrex dish covered with foil and just let them steam then roast without foil in oven. great side dish.

Sweet Pepper Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
We liked this. Would taste great with a grilled turkey n cheese sandwich next to it. Changes I made due to what I had: only had 2 cans of chicken broth so I added 1c water with a chicken bouillon cube, increased black pepper to 1/4 tsp and used full fat milk. That said this recipe is missing something. We liked this because we added shredded qashkaval (mozerella) cheese to our bowls. I couldn't imagine eating this without the cheese but with it, it tastes great.

Teriyaki and Pineapple Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
Made this exactly except omitted crushed red pepper (didn't have any), used one fresh clove garlic & added handful of snow peas in the pod. The red pepper would have given this a good kick. I probably won't make this again...terriyaki is expensive here and I wouldn't want to use a whole cup for a 'so-so' recipe.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
My husband made this for us today. This is the first time he makes anything other than eggs with tomato. They really were fluffy! They made 4 big pancakes for us. We used half wheat flour, 1tsp wheat germ, 1 tspn wheat bran, left out the butter in the batter and just sprayed butter on the non-stick pan. We ate them with pineapple slices and honey. YUM! Next time I think I will add 1 TB of water to make it more liquidy to make up for the adjustments that I made.

Soft Sandwich Buns

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
Amazing, I ate them and was shocked! I used all-purpose flour, added a little olive oil to the batter, added only 1/2c extra flour than what the recipe states while kneading by hand (initially kneaded 3 cups in food processor) and let rise for about 7 hours, LOL long story. 350F for 15 minutes or light brown. I only got 11 small buns, so will probably double the recipe next time to get 12 big buns for hamburgers. Can't wait to make it again.

Raspberry Vinegar Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
This just didn't work out for us. The vinegar was too overwhelming. I buy an expensive Lebanese vinegar so could it be that the amount stated are for cheaper (watered out) vinegars?

Dukkah

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
This just did not work out for my husband & I. For all the trouble I went through to make it and hazelnuts are expensive here, he tasted it and said "hmm, yum, zatar." (zatar is a simple lebanese dish of thyme, sesame, sumac...etc.) Zatar is nothing impressive to a Lebanese person, LOL so any dish that he thinks is zatar & has expensive ingredients is not worth my effort or money. It saves well however, I had it for so long then took it to Lebanon to let my mother-in-law try my "home-made zatar"!! LOL

Ranch Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
I loved this burger. Flavor is great. I needed a quick recipe and this was definitely it. With that said, I liked tasting the meat more than I liked the burger, I think i will make it as meatballs where the taste of this meat can shine more...or something in another recipe or on it's own. Haven't quite put my finger on it. But if i need a quick burger recipe, I will make this but if I have more time, I'd probably use another one & save this recipe to make as a separate dish, not a burger. I also doubled the ranch & decreased the crackers because I was using very lean ground beef.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
This is my brownie recipe from now on! I doubled the recipe and made it inside a 9x13 at 350F for 35min).Didn't use the frosting, was already too sweet for me and I only used 1 3/4 cup sugar(less than 2c which is what recipes lists for double). I used 125grams of butter (a little more than a stick of butter), melted in the micro & then I just kept adding veg. oil to make 1 cup. I think I will reduce sugar to 1 1/2 c next time and not add veg. oil if making it for DH because he immediately tasted the oil in it. He hates oil in sweets and prefers butter :)

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
I never thought apple, onion, chicken & milk could be combined to equal something tasty! I used onions that I had diced in my food processor otherwise the diced ones would have been too big in the soup at the end. Shredded carrot better than diced ones. Omitted the flour. Used all of the curry spice (any less would have had no flavor). I left the skin on half of the red apple that I used. Omitted the white rice (used Orzo pasta instead), used full milk instead of heavy cream, and one(or two) chicken bouillon cubes with 4 cups of water instead of chicken broth.I sauteed the chicken in butter 1st, then took out, sauteed the carrots, onions, & celery a little then added water & chicken cube then followed the recipe as written. Oh btw, make sure you heat the milk in the microwave before adding it to the pot. Edited 9-9-09: have since tried it with rice, i like it with orzo more. Also, I make it with canned chicken broth & have found it tasty.

Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
Followed everything except added extra spices to bread mixture (thyme, italian seasoning, salted the chicken, celery salt) including the basil plus melted butter & put it with mixture so it held on good to the chicken breasts & got crispy. YUM!

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
I can not believe a dish this easy can taste this good! Not only is it easy to make but when u're done, u only end up with about 3 pieces of dishes from making the recipe :) I made it on chicken and used the sauce of 6 servings for 4 boneless chicken breast pieces. (I like more sauce on stuff) I used dried oregano on top and lemon juice instead of white wine (chicken broth would've worked too but it wasn't worth opening a can of broth 4 the little bit required in the recipe). I cooked the chicken for about 30 min & it was toooo dry. I'll definitely make this again but will watch out & try to cook the chicken less. This recipe is now on my rotation of things to cook often.

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
I was shocked that I didn't need to alter the spices or anything in the lentil mixture since oregano & cumin sounded like a weird couple to me. I just added salt when I was mashing the garlic...didn't need it really cuz the chicken broth has enough salt. I didn't have sour cream or lettuce so I just scooped the lentil/salsa mixture in shells, topped w/ cheddar cheese & diced tomatoes. Amazing! Can't wait to eat it for lunch today.

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I was looking for a recipe that had sesame seeds; I loved this. Would be even better with white rice next to the dish. Already had some chopped frozen bell pepper in the freezer. I tripled the sauce & added low sodium soy sauce.I fried the chicken in a mixture of sesame oil & veg. oil. Since I didn't have Chinese five spice powder, I googled what it consisted of & there seemed to be slight variations among the results so I stuck with the one that I had all the ingredients I had in my spice cabinet. My "five spice powder" had black pepper, cinnamon, anise seed, ground cloves & ginger. Turned out wonderful but if I ever get my bands on real Chinese five spice powder, I'd like to try it to see the difference.

Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
This wasn't great. I followed the recipe exactly. My friend told me it reminded her of "hamburger helper".
