Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Wonderful recipe...very similar to my grandma's. I would recommend using unseasoned stuffing mix or omitting Italian seasoning...it can be a bit overpowering. Great way to get kids to eat spinach, my 5yr old loves them. Also great for vegetarians...use as a replacement for meatballs in spaghetti :)

Vaselopita - Greek New Years Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
It was fantastic, although I did add almond extract to the batter for a more almond-y flavor. It was a big hit at the New Years party! I did substitute a whole almond for the coin due to excessive drinking on New Years :) I originally put it in a springform pan but it started to leak in my oven! In a pinch I put it in a bundt pan, which turned out just fine. Excellent cake, not too sweet, needs no icing but would be good with an almond flavored glaze. Happy baking, and eating! :)

Baked Stuffed Pears

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
I used this as a skeleton recipe and used several of the reviewer's tips. I omitted lemon, made a filling of oatmeal, dates, honey, brown sugar, and almonds. I had no apple juice so I used a Riesling wine. Amazing flavor! 3 pears filled a 9X13 pan. Baked for 40 mins.

Koshary

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I made this dish with a side of naan bread. It was wonderful! I did make some adjustments - omitted pasta, butter and fried onions, used red lentils instead of brown, increased vinegar to 1/2 cup, increased spices, added chickpeas to tomato mix and simmered together, used vegetable stock instead of chicken stock, seasoned rice and lentils with cumin and red pepper flakes. Fantastic vegetarian dish!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
These cookies are fantastic! I used white chocolate and peanut butter chips, as well. I didn't have unsalted butter, salted worked just fine. Mine were also a bit smaller - golf ball sized.
