Dishpan Cookies II

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2002
i was disappointed in the chewiness everyone mentioned. i thought these came out dry. the chewiness must just be from the cereals and coconut vs the moisture retention. i cut the recipe in half and it filled my mixing bowl, so if you do the full recipe, you will need a huge bowl and strength to mix all the ingredients. you can't really use a power mixer when adding the final ingredients: cereals, chips and coconut.

Lemon Posset

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
Super easy and delicious. I added lemon zest and I would reduce the sugar next time. Too sweet. But otherwise - awesome!

Leyley's Spicy Chicken Adobo Wings

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2005
I grew up on chicken adobo and hoped that the jalapenos would add some zip. Didn't reall. Also, I always find chicken gets pretty dried out with the excessive cooking times required. Need to find an adobo recipe that keeps the great flavor without drying out the chicken.

Candied Citrus Peel

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
This was easy. After they dried I tossed them in granulated sugar. A tip to make the removal of the pith super easy - use a Pampered Chef grapefruit knife. You'll be done in a jiffy.

Spiced Beef Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
Very disappointing. Bland and very beery tasting. Also seemed like something was missing. Didn't like using canned veggies either.

Mamool or Ma'amoul

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
I didn't like the dough in this version. It lacked flavor and the texture could have been better (even with the semolina). I've searched the internet and there are some others that I think the dough would accomplish that. At the point where it says to add the hot water, I would do so gradually. I added the whole cup and the dough was too soft. It also says to let the dough sit. It probably should say to put it in the frig to stiffen it. Could be a great recipe with those kind of changes.

Watermelon Harvest Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2005
i eat a lot of melon and thought it would be a good way to use the rind. this is definitely different and not bad. you have to like a crunchy type pie with the rind, nuts, and dried cranberries. flavor is good, just didn't care for the texture. i would chop the rind even smaller and less nuts if i made it again.

Candied Grapefruit Peel

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
I give it four stars because it is time consuming, but the end result is excellent!

Egyptian Rose Leaves

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
I was disappointed in the overall look and texture of these cookies. And you must be a fan of rosewater (or maybe I put TOO much in). Anyway, I use rosewater in my strawberry rosewater ice cream (posted on allrecipes) and love it. But maybe I like it better there because it is complimentary to the berries. Not a keeper recipe for me.

Lemon Souffle

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
After I removed the ramekins from the oven and waited the 5 min. cool time, they cracked and started to fall. The lemon curd I thought was essential as the souffle itself was light and boring.

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2004
I've been trying a number of recipes here to find the one I like best and this is it. Moist with good banana flavor. I add chocolate chips and once even added some kahlua.

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2004
Although good, I found the bread heavier and the texture not as moist and without the same "mouth feel" as others. Sorry I can't think of a better description. Also, not much banana flavor and I used three very ripe/soft bananas. I think I will try it again, but will add a 1/2 cup of oil and maybe even more banana.

Flan de Coco (Coconut Flan)

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Very good. I liked that it had a mix of evaporated and sweetened condensed milks. I did not add sugar to the egg mixture, agreeing that the caramel sauce would add enough sweetness.

Washabinaros Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
The flavors really do blend together and mellow out. I had reduced the chilis in fear of it being hot, but should have left them in. I used 2 cans pintos as well.

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
DOUBLE THE RECIPE! I followed it as is and it only filled half of my 9" square - unless they are supposed to be REALLY thin. Also a little on the bland side. I'll put more dried fruit in next time.

Baklava

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
I read all of the tips and did make the sauce ahead of time. I added 2 t. of rosewater to the nut mixture to give it more Mideastern flavor. Unfortunately the phyllo sheets were just a tad too large for my pans and trimming after the fact was not good. So I definitely recommend that you check the phyllo to your pan to make sure it lies in nicely and trim, if necessary, BEFORE you start assembly. I've also recently seen some baklava being sold with chocolate. So I took half the pan and drizzled melted chocolate just on the top. I think too much chocolate is overpowering.
