Easy Greek Yogurt Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
Good recipe that I have made a couple of times. I made it last night to serve with the Kofta Kebabs and it was excellent. I added a second clove of garlic and did not have a cucumber so I just skipped it. Personally, I prefer the consistency without the cucumber which tends to make it watery. Really good authentic flavor, cucumber or not!

Kofta Kebabs

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
Loved this, served with Tzatziki sauce. Followed recipe exactly, but I did alter the cooking method since it was 10 degrees here and I didn't want to fire up the grill. I made them into four hand formed loafs (4 ounces each) placed them in a baking pan and baked them at 350 for 20 minutes. Served with the Tzatziki (also from Allrecipes) and a fennel salad with red peppers, mandarin orange, red onion with a light apple cider vinaigrette.

Grandma Randolph's Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
I made these for Thanksgiving this year, my dad's wife asked me to bring noodles. Historically, I have not had great luck with noodles - ask me to bring Pork Tenderloin en Croute, no problem, but noodles defied me. These turned out great, and I think I figured out what I had done wrong in the past - not enough flour. They were terribly sticky initially, and I thought they were done for, I added a tad more flour a Tablespoon at at time and they turned out great! I rolled them out on the counter-top with plenty of flour top and bottom, and covered them with a tea towel and let them sit for a hour before cutting with a pizza cutter. I tossed the cut noodles in the leftover flour and popped them into a baggie and frozen them for the next day. I left them frozen until I popped them into the boiling water. We served them naked so folks could put gravy or butter on them. Very good, I will make them again. Oh, one comment, I used freshly ground black pepper - I LOVE pepper, and they were almost too peppery - almost.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
I will make it again! I used Best Life Margarine instead of butter, 2% Milk instead of heavy cream and 2 cloves of garlic instead of one. I see some reviewers mentioned adding corn starch if they use milk the next time they make it. There is NO NEED to add corn starch, just cook it a little longer before and after the addition of the cheese while stirring constantly with a whisk. That's what I did and it turned out beautifully. As mentioned by a couple of reviewers, I used GRATED cheese and thought the texture was a bit grainy (and no, I didn't break my sauce!). As a couple other reviewers mentioned, I think I will use 1 cup Gruyère and 1/2 cup of a shredded Parm instead. I am not a huge fan of the Olive Garden Alfredo, it's a bit too salty for my taste, so I feel using the Gruyère will tame the salt a bit. (Then I can add some bacon or pancetta too!). Enjoy! This is a winner sauce. Thank you to it's author!

Habanero Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
Excellent Cookie! I made the batter a day ahead and refrigerated it so it was firm. I also keep it in the fridge when not scooping out cookies. The only variation I made was to reduce the butter by half and supplement with margarine, I like the cookie texture with margarine - I used Smart Balance. Per the supplemental instructions in the recipe, I soaked and rinsed the habaneros (once). Be extremely careful, wear gloves, glasses and a mask or bandanna over your nose and mouth would not be a bad idea either. I believe the baking temperature is incorrect at 325, my first batch took nearly 20 minutes, but that could have been because the dough was cold. Subsequent batches worked great at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes (until lightly golden).
