Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2007
This lamb roast was delicious. I put garlic cloves inside the roast to help add to the flavor of the meat. I initially roasted it at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, then at 350 minutes for the rest of the time. A 145 degree internal temperature is too low, the roast was very pink(almost red)through out. I will try an internal temperature of 160 degrees next time I make this recipe. Also I will add water to the bottom of the pan to help prevent the sauce from burning up on the bottom of the pan.

Real N'awlins Muffuletta

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2002
I am a New Orlean's Central Grocery Muffeletta fan. This recipe was great!! Almost as terrific as Central Grocery's version. Maybe better, because I made it fresh!! My husband and I savored every bite. My daughter liked it on a Hawaiin Bread Roll, with a sweetness to it. My son is not an olive fan. That's o.k., more for me to eat!! Will definitely make this again.

Crispy Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
This was the first time I have made sole fish, it was great, a very mild tasting fish. I used bread crumbs instead of potato flakes(didn't have it), dijon mustard(1 Tbspn) instead of yellow mustard. I also added spices to the bread crumbs - garlic powder and minced dried onions. I will definitely make this again and add oregano to bread crumbs too.

German Apple Pancake

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
Very good, easy recipe. My family liked it very much. I did add extra cinammon as suggested, about 1 1/4 teaspoon. I didn't have time to let the batter sit overnight or for a few hours. It sat for about 10 minutes and turned out fine. I found it easier to remove the pancake from the baking pan by placing a serving dish on top of it and turning it upside down. Thought it looked quite nice that way too.

Fried Soft-Shell Crab

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
This was a very simple recipe to which I made a few changes. My son & I enjoyed the soft shelled crab, wishing I had bought more to prepare. I added salt, garlic powder, and oregano to flour mixture. Used 2 Tbspn of oil to fry 2 soft-shell crabs. Didn't use milk, only beaten egg before dipping into flour mixture. Will definitely use this recipe again.

Summer Pasta D'lite

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2002
My family liked the recipe very much. I added extra oil/vinegar to flavor all the pasta. I used "wagon wheel" pasta instead of angel hair.

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
Amazing! The key is broiling the eggplant in the oven 30-40 minutes, turning every 5 minutes, until cooked well and the skin is charred all over. Scoop out the eggplant, put in a bowl and let the water drain out. Dispose of water. I used 1 small-medium sized eggplant, 1 clove garlic, 1 1/2 tsp tehina and 1 1/2 tspn lemon, salt and pepper to taste. I'll be making this again soon!

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
With a few changes this is a delicious, easy way to make a casserole that tastes like stuffed cabbage rolls. First, I pan fried the onions with 3-4 cloves of garlic, for extra flavor. I added about 1/4 cup basalmic vinegar, 1/4 cup sugar(brown and white) to have the sweet and sour taste we like. I didn't have enough tomato sauce so I added 1- 14 oz can of diced tomatoes with jalepeno(optional). I precooked the brown rice before adding it to the casserole for baking. I baked it covered for 1- 1 1/2 hours so the cabbage was well cooked.

Ambrosia Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I liked this recipe very much. I used only fruit cocktail, marshmallows, and cool whip, since that was what I had in the house. I also added chopped walnuts for additional texture. I didn't used cinnamon or nutmeg, since I wasn't sure I wanted that flavoring in this fruit salad.

Thai Spiced Barbecue Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2006
These were great, my family liked them very much. Very easy to prepare and cook. Used curry powder instead of paste as that was what I had in my kitchen. Serve with rice or noodle side dish.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
This was a delicious key lime pie with a nice lime flavor, sweet and rich. I used fresh squeezed limes and followed the original recipe, rather than doubling it as other reviewers did. Therefore I used a smaller store bought graham cracker pie crust. I used the 5 egg whites to make a meringue topping, baking 10 minutes without the merinque(to cook the filling) and another 10 minutes with the meringue topping. The meringue topping made the pie look beautiful as well as taste great. I'll definitely make this pie again when I have a group to bake for.

African-Style Oxtail Stew

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
This recipe tasted good, and my family ate it. I didn't use kidney beans or peppercorns. I'm not a fan of oxtails, so I won't make this again.

Poppy Seed Bread

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
My husband, son and I enjoyed this poppy seed bread very much. I used plain soy milk instead of regular milk to make the recipe lactose free. I cut down the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and used twice as much poppy seed, as recommended. Instead of butter flavor I used lemon extract. I'll definitely make this recipe again.

Chicken Vesuvio

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
My family liked this recipe. I used regular yellow onions and didn't use rosemary. I added more garlic and doubled the amount of gravy next time. I needed to add 1/4 cup of chicken broth toward the end of baking because the gravy was baking away. Next time I will try making it with 1 tsp of dried rosemary. I baked it at 375 degrees for 45 - 60 minutes, basting every 10 minutes.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
Delicious, quick and easy to make. I didn't add any shortening and the dipping went fine without it. I microwaved the chips in a small deep bowl for 2 minutes, checking every 30 seconds to see if the chips were melting and give them a stir. I put the dipped strawberries on parchment paper to cool the chocolate before putting them in the refrigerator to harden. I made a batch with 6 oz of semi sweet choco chips and a 2 oz batch with 60% cacao choco chips, which my husband likes.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Very good soup and easy recipie. I added leftover turkey leg meat that my husband and son wouldn't eat. A good use of leftovers. I didn't add cheese, as I am lactose intolerant.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
This soup was enjoyed by everyone during our Thanksgiving meal. It was easy and quick to make, once I had homemade chicken broth prepared. I didn't have time to blenderize the soup, so instead I just mashed it with a potato masher. Everyone liked the texture of the soup instead of a thick liquid from the blender. I added a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg, which added a nice fall flavor. I'll definitely make this recipe again.

Beet Salad with Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
My husband, daughter and I liked this salad very much. It is a nice light tasting dressing, great for the summer time. I cut the beets in small chunks in order for them to cook quicker. I substituted fresh squeezed orange and sliced almonds since that was what I had in my kitchen.
