Emily's Famous Tiramisu

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
This recipe worked out for me with a few modifications due to necessity. I would like to try making it to the T next time. I didn't have a coffee maker or regular coffee so I brewed up my hazelnut coffee in a coffee press which made for some really strong coffee. I also reduced the water in half. I couldn't find Mascarpone cheese in my local grocery store (I live in a primarily Latino neighborhood in Los Angeles and they were like "Que es eso?"). I substituted the Mascarpone with 8 oz of cream cheese and 3 tablespoons of sour cream. Poured in heavy whipping cream a little at a time. This was totally worth it. The most time consuming part of it but overall the texture and taste was well worth the effort. My whole family loved it. Next time I will soak the ladyfingers more. I followed the recipe here to the T and it turned out amazing. I am already imagining what else I can make with ladyfingers :). Thanks for this recipe. I will surely make it again for Thanksgiving.

Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
I made some modifications: Instead of green chile I used green bell pepper. Chopped up some cilantro and threw it in the mix. I don't know what tempeh is (nor is it available at my local food 4 less since I live in a predominantly Latino community) - replaced it with cotija cheese (it's a Mexican dry cheese and it's sold already crumbled in my local store). Boiled up a whole chicken with some garlic cloves and a bay leaf, let it cool, and shredded it. Added it to the layers. Instead of cheddar - used colby jack (the one that is mixed between Monterrey and the yellow kind). Last, I made it the night before the actual party and kept it in the fridge. Let them sit out of the fridge for about 20 minutes before popping in the oven the day of the event. Made the day go by smoothly and allowed me to focus on making fresh rice to go with it. It was a huge hit at my son's party last year and it has been requested again this year and I have given this recipe to a few friends already (Ohh my mother-in-law made it for family in Mexico and they raved about it too!). It's extremely easy and delicious. It can be made in large quantities and goes a long way (I made two large casseroles for 40 people each casserole)!

Michelle's Coconut Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2013
For my first time trying to make curry this is a great start. It did need some additional spices so I had to add about a teaspoon of chicken bouillon as this was my first time making curry I was scared to overwhelm the recipe. I did substitute the cauliflower with potato and carrots as well. Next time I will most definitely try some of the suggestions from the comments as they all sound so delicious.
