Glazed Apple Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
This pie is amazing. I used half brown sugar and 3 apples and I used a single pie crust and put the glaze over the apples. The creamy filling is so tasty and elegant. The pie is unusual and delicious. I will use this recipe again and again.

Alfajores Argentinean Style

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
These cookies were amazing. I used 1 egg and 2 yolks, white rum and I needed just 1/2 can dulce de leche for my cookies. The taste was fantastic, they look festive too (I sprinkled with confectioners` sugar) and I will use this recipe again and again.

Cranberry Orange Tea Ring

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
This was very good, we really loved. I didn`t have orange marmelade, so used orange juice instead, and I found I had to add sugar. Don`t roll the rectangle very thin, the filling may be a little runny the first minutes in the oven. The filling was amazing, I used only 1 1/3 cups cranberries, so used apple too. The dough was very soft and tasty. The presentasion is great too.

Chicken Biryani

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This was my first chicken biryani. The taste was delicious, if you make this recipe without rice, you will get a great chicken dish. My only complaint was that the oven makes the dish, especially rice a little dry, and we didn't like this step so much. When you make the chicken, you have plenty of liquid, but after oven all the liquid was evaporated and, in my opinion, oven a little "kills" the flavor. So the next time to make this biryani I will make this recipe without putting in the oven or will put in the oven just for 15-20 min.

Mocha Cigars with Coffee Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I have a trouble to rate this recipe, because this is a recipe with a different reaction in my family. This recipe was a completely new thing for me to make, so I want to write some tips. The recipe is not so difficult as seems. When you make the dough it will have a creamy consistency. Don`t be afraid, it must be creamy. It will become thick after refrigerating (I refrigerated for 3 hours). I made stencils (rounds) on a parchment paper with a pencil using a plate (10 centimeter). Then turn your parchment paper upside down, otherwise the trace of the pencil can be on your baked cigar. Be sure to make a thin layer, your cigars will look more beautiful and you will be able to put more filling inside. I baked the dough for 5 min and I think to rotate the baking sheet is useless. I rolled the dough without any problem, tearing or sticking. I tried to use a wooden spoon, but my cigar sticked to the spoon, so I rolled just using my fingers. Believe me, it is easy to roll. The filling was very tasty, I use only 2 cups whipped cream. But we didn`t like the dough so much. I expected the cigars will be dry like waffles for ice cream, but the dough was soft, similar to roulade dough. And I had a trouble to fill the cigar with the cream completely. I didn`t use grated chocolate to dip the ends. Overall, the recipe is unusual, but, in my opinion, doesn`t deserve a time and ingrediends wasted on it.

Eggnog from Scratch

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
I used this recipe because I needed to utilize 6 egg yolks from a dessert I made. It was my first eggnog, I have made coquito before (and realized I love it more), but this recipe is different from coquito. The texture was creamy and milky. I used less sugar and less rum (white rum), but I think spirit gives an extra kick and makes the eggnog tastier. In my opinion, this eggnog needs more spices, so I added cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg in the bottle. Overall, this is a delicious eggnog and easy to make too.

Codfish with Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
We liked this. This dish turns out like fish pie or lasagna. The flavor is creamy, not very salty and the combination of potato/cheese/fish/sauce is great.

Favorite Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Sorry to say, but we didn`t like these cookies. They tasted like baking cocoa and neither chips nor raisin (I used instead of nuts) saved the flavor. We didn`t like like the main chocolate flavor. I don`t know maybe with this recipe I realized I am not a chocolate cookie lover, because I baked chocolate cookies before and we weren`t satisfied with the result too. Maybe just a personal preference, but these cookies were just nothing especial for us.

Punjabi Sukha Urad Dal

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
This was very good and flavorful, though I found 4 chilies were hot enough for us. So next time I will use 2 or 3 chilies instead. Thanks for your wonderful Indian dishes, Susmita.

Homemade Manti (Traditional Turkish Dumplings)

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
This recipe is very close to the recipe that my family makes for years just without these sauces. I think 2 eggs is too much, so I use 1 egg and more water instead. The dough comes out great. I used beef and added a little cream to the filling. Then I froze the dumplings for at least an hour. We always do it, I don`t know does it make the difference, but I think it prevents from tearing when you boil the dumplings. The yogurt sauce is great for the dumplings, although we didn`t like the pepper oil (not hot and a little oily). Overall this is a great recipe.

Kheema Malai Kofta

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
This was very very delicious and very easy to make too. I didn`t have fenugreek leaves, so used seeds instead. Great recipe to make meatballs with Indian flavor.

Bacalao a la Vizcaina (Basque Style Codfish Stew)

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
This dish was spectacular. I can`t believe salted cod can be so good. I didn`t have capers, so used more green olives and used rose wine instead. And I roasted peppers in my oven. Very good.

Country Oat Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
These were very good. I followed the recipe exactly, just omitted honey, because my family don`t like sweet bread. Great texture and taste.

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
I don`t know what exactly but something was wrong with this recipe for me. I have made it for two times and I had the same problem. When I poured the milk mixture over the cake ( I poked the cake before), the cake absorbed only half of this mixture, but half just layed on the top. The cake inside wasn`t moist at all. It was absolutely dry. I guess the dough is very heavy and thick here to absorb the milk mixture. I made Brazilian style moist coconut cake from this site (it is the same way moist cake and I made it perfect thanks to suggestions) and this cake always turn out really moist. That dough is more fluffy and absorbs the liquid perfectly. I read reviews, many people loved this cake and it turned out for them, but after two attempts I can give only this rating.

Fig Smoothie

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
Actually I give 3,5 stars. I don`t know maybe it were my figs or orange juice, but this smoothie was very very sweet. This is the reason we didn`t enjoyed it so much. Great idea and figs go great with orange, but the sweeteness really overwhelmed here.

A Lot More Than Plain Spinach Pie (Greek Batsaria)

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
The whole family agreed, that this was the best spinach pie. I didn`t make the topping and used only 1/2 cup olive oil, or even less. Very delicious, thanks.

Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
This is a great dressing, but it was too hot for our tastes. I used it for salad, maybe for meat it would be totally great. Next time I will reduce jalapeno.

Harvest Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
We liked this salad, although I made it with another dressing. This is the best spinach salad I`ve tasted. I used raw walnuts.
