Rice Pudding With Dates

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
I followed the recipe very close the first time, except using only 10 dates and 3 tbs of honey instead of sugar. It was good just when you blend the cooked rice and combine everything else its kind of clumpy. So the second time- this morning- I ground the rice before cooking it, then for about 1 cup of rice I used about 3 cups of milk and 1 cup of water. The rice absorbs the liquid easily so you can not hardly put too much liquids in it. I also sweetened it with honey and Iraqi date syrup. Very smooth and creamy and tasty now! Very good basic recipe. Thanks!

Mensaf (Jordanian Lamb Stew)

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
This recipe is very good, but my Husband who was born in Kuwait, raised in Iraq and lived in Jordan for 6 years said they serve this dish with more lamb milk broth then this. Also you should have made clear that you do not use a flat platter but rather a bowl shaped dish, so the Pita bread soaks up lamb milk broth. But I was absolutely thrilled to find this recipe as it is hard to find arabic recipes online. Thanks so much. :)

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
These were fabulous! I am not a fan of just white flour, so I did a 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour and a 1/2 cup of white flour. They were still amazingly light and fluffy! Wow I will never use another pancake recipe!

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
I am not sure why but my dough was very sticky. I am thankful I have experience in pie making and was able to just add a few things here and there to make it the right consistency. Other then that I would say this recipe was very good! My friend loved the turn outs. :)

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
I love this soup, though I normally follow a recipe strictly the first time I use it, this one I didn't since I want spinach- I like to make a lot of soup one time and freeze the rest and didn't want gross looking spinach in the soup. Instead of vinegar I use lemon juice, but I followed everything else and all I can say is that I love it!

Potato and Cheddar Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
I followed this exactly as the recipe- excluding the ham- and I find that it is a good soup base. But I had to add some extra seasoning with it to make it to my taste. Thanks for sharing and I am intending to keep it as it is simple and quick and you can easily build off of it.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
This recipe is absolutely AMAZING! I didn't do the frosting as the brownies are tasty enough. This is now my TOP brownie recipe. Next time I want to try adding some chocolate chips and see how that will taste. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. :)

Hot Breakfast Couscous

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
Marrying an Arabic man, I have grown to love couscous. But since I am use to having it will a soup, I think this would maybe be really good with a fruit sauce on top. Next time I will also put the apricots, raisins and almonds in while waiting for the milk to boil.
