Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Very good recipe for beginners. I use my kitchen center to knead the dough. Anyone has experience hand kneading this recipe will work for them too. I have tried using the following combinations: 1) all unbleached flour; 2) 1 cup whole wheat + 2 cups unbleached; 3) 1.5 cups whole wheat + 1.5 cups unbleached. They all worked out very well. Depends on the type of flour I use, I adjust the amount of water in the recipe. I like to make the dough a bit softer than that for regular sandwich loaf. Once the dough is doubled, I punch down, divide the dough into equal parts. It's very important to let the dough pieces relax for 5 - 10 minutes before rolling them out or they will resist the stretch and keep pulling back. I like my pita pockets thin so I roll them as thin as possible. Then I dust the flat dough rounds with a bit extra flour, lift the piece and, at the same time, stretch around the edge before flipping it over, then dust more flour on top. Dusting the dough goes a long way. It makes handling the final dough a much easier task. Since I make my dough a bit softer than my regular loaf, using a bit flour for dusting doesn't make the dough dry, and I never have problems moving them onto a cooling rack for baking. I covered my rounds and let sit for 30 minutes (they don't rise a lot) then bake them at 500 for 4 minutes only. Turns out perfectly every time.

Veggie Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I halved the recipe; skipped the salt and used less ranch dressing mix. I used a lot of shredded veggies and grated cheddar cheese so next time I will make more sour cream & cream cheese mixture. I made the pizza the night before the Super Bowl party. It was pretty good but was not a big hit. Kept it in the fridge for another night. They tasted even better on the third day. Amazing!

Vegetarian Cottage Cheese Patties

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
This is a good basic recipe. Once you get a hang of the dry to wet ingredients ratio you can really play it to your likings. I like to use different herbs and spices to come up with different flavors. BBQ is always a big hit in our family. I just pan fry the patties and they always turn out great. Thanks for sharing.

Chicken and Corn Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
made it in my slow cooker. My husband preferred chunky over shredded chicken. Our son said it was "all right". I liked it so will give it 4 stars.

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Very good wings! I made some for our Super Bowl "Pre Game" meal aka lunch. I took the advice from other reviewers; instead of frying the wings I baked them. Marinated wings with salt & pepper the night before. This morning, I dusted the wings with min. amount of flour, sprayed with PAM then baked at 400F for 40 minutes, turned once. Cooked the sauce in a sauce pan, using the ingredients suggested plus 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, until thickened. Used a pastry brush to apply the sauce on both sides of wings. Baked at 400F and basted every 8 - 10 minutes for a total of 35 minutes. Just had enough sauce for that purpose. The wings were sticky but not messy. My husband and our son loved them. Thanks for the recipe! Definitely will make them again.

Sugar Spiced Almonds

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
Definitely use egg white and water for better coating. I didn't have any chili powder so I used Tex Mex instead. It still turned out good. My husband loved it. Thanks!

Waffles II

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
The first time I tried this recipe I followed it to a teeT; it turned out all right but not great. Tried it again this morning. Took the advice of other reviewers to add more sugar, cinnamon, vanilla. Definitely more milk because the batter was a bit thick. This time it turned out excellent. My husband and our 7-year-old loved it.
