Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
I really like this a lot. It's the only meatloaf my boyfriend will eat! I substituted the onion with onion powder (I love onions, my boyfriend does *not*) and added garlic powder and a little salsa.

Dirt Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
I was kind of disappointed with this dish which was probably my fault. All the stellar reviews got my expectations pretty high. I omitted the butter and reduced the whipped cream slightly. It was definitely a little too sweet for my taste and my boyfriend's and next time I make it I'd omit the sugar as well and add more cream cheese.

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
I thought it was ok. My boyfriend really didn't like it at all. I thought the flavors needed more depth, it was hot but there was no layering of flavors. If I made it again I'd add a tablespoon of sugar, potatoes, and some meat to make it more interesting.

Kelsey's Cheesy Bacon Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
This was good, more man food than chick food if you'll allow me to stereotype. Very filling and hearty. Watch the chicken though, it really should be cooked through after twenty minutes. Also, wait till the last 10 minutes to add the cheese.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
Pretty good, the sauce was a bit too thin and tart to do much for me. I got the feeling that this would be a good "base" recipe. I'd definitely recommend adding garlic and increasing the amount of seasonings if you're fond of more flavorful food.

Rava Laddu

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
I love Middle Eastern sweets as they're what I grew up on but I wasn't big on this dessert. Extremely sweet with no other flavors....a kind of sticky sugary mess.

Milk Pie, Galatoboureko

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
Wonderful, really authentic in flavor. Increase the sugar though for more Western tastes, I'd say increase it to 1 3/4 cups to 2 cups sugar if you plan on feeding it to people who didn't grow up eating it.

Khoresht Fesenjaan (Chicken with Pomegranate Sauce)

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
I wasn't sure if I liked this at first but it does grow on you as you eat it. It has an unusual taste. I replaced the pomegranate juice with a tablespoon of pomegranate molasses. I omitted the squash (didn't have any) and it still tasted very good.

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
Ok....for chocolate chip CAKE. I was looking for cookies. I omitted the white chocolate chips and cut the recipe in half. It was a little dry and definitely a cake.

Polynesian Sausage Supper

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
It was good and filling...not exceptional. The sauce was nice and thick but needed a little more flavor. I'd recommend adding some spices for flavor. I omitted the tomatoes, substituting a little tomato paste. I also replaced the smoked sausage with mild Italian sausage.

Dorothy's Stefado

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
Personally I found it was too oniony for my taste. My boyfriend thought it was to die for though, ate it cold. I replaced the cinnamon stick with several tablespoons of cinnamon.

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
This was phenomenal but I did change a few things. I replaced the ricotta with additional feta and reduced the parsley by half. I also added a dash of lemon juice and a tablespoon of fresh chopped dill.

Wonderful in taste and very filling. I added some dried basil, parsley, cilantro, and a dash of crushed red pepper for flavor though.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
I replaced the 3/4 cup mayonnaise with 1/2 cup mayo, half cup fat free Miracle Whip mixture. I also added a little sour cream, and a tablespoon each of mustard, horseradish sauce, and lemon juice. A really EXTREMELY good and easy to make dinner.

Reuben Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
PERFECT way to use up a leftover corned beef dinner. I replaced the sauerkraut with chopped cooked cabbage , then drizzled it with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Then everything else as written and it was SO good.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
I added cinnamon, vanilla, and a little oil and water because the batter was initially too thick. The color and appearance wasn't very attractive and I would've increased the sugar another 1/2 cup. But it had a nice moist tender texture and definite strong banana taste. Definitely an unbeatable base recipe.
