Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
I used 3/4 of a cup of quinoa and got 8 regular sized patties, but I actually think 1/2 cup of quinoa is enough. I put them in the oven at 400 for 30 min. and they came out crunchy and tasty. I did not have yellow bell pepper so I used tomato, and garlic powder since I did not have garlic either. This recipe is very forgiving in terms of ingredients.

Quick and Easy Chicken and Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
You can't give this recipe less than 5 stars! I can't believe it turned out this good. I changed the quantities a bit just based on what I needed and added oregano, wine and garlic. I did not even need the parmesan. This one is a keeper.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
It turned out chunky and full of flavor and moderately spicy. You can start this just like a regular chicken soup w/o the broth. I had the breast bones, so I added them along with a cube of chicken bouillon to get the flavor, and also added two cups more of water. Other than that, it was no sweat to make it, but to eat it :-). We never had this soup before -only heard about it in the soup nazi episode of Seinfeld- so I think that was an advantage.

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
1 cup of water was sufficient to get the consistency I wanted. Easy and tasty. This one is a keeper.

Peruvian Alfajores

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
I replaced the shortening with butter and it turned out perfectly. If you don't want the dough to stick to the surface, spread some flour on the surface, and also on your rolling pin. don't roll the pin from one extreme of the dough to the other, but roll in short intervals. You can add some shredded coconut for gasnish after the alfajores are done.

Bolivian Saltenas

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
I bought the dough discs ready from the market and it worked, though the saltenas were smaller. I used beef chunks -which I diced- instead of ground beef, and cilantro instead of parsley. These saltenas do not taste quite like the ones I used to have in the South of Peru -and of course, they taste differently in different places- but they turned out really good. I Will make this recipe often since it was easy to follow and not really hard to make. Thanks for the recipe.

Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2013
Loved it! I Marinated the chicken overnight. The sauce was easy to make. I added veggie kebabs and couscous which only added a few minutes to the cooking time. A complete meal on a budget.

Zucchini and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
The easiest and most rewarding meal I have ever made. It also works as a side dish with pretty much everything. I added some carrots and yellow squash for a more colorful presentation and oregano which improved the aroma.

Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
It did not turn out very well. It did not have the right texture or flavor. If I may recommend an equally easy but rather tasty recipe, see Peach cobbler VI. You'll see the difference.

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
It was so simple to make that I still cannot believe it. Yeah, the dough was a little sticky but I could still work with it. I put it all in a baking pan and used a knife to make cuts to get individual rolls. I even received kudos from my wife, who is not a fan of bread.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I made the recipe as indicated and it turned out pretty good. The second time it was even better than the first one. It was easy to make, took no time, it had a nice taste and texture and it will be a great addition to your breakfast, lunch, or dinner table.

Coconut Milk Flan

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
This recipe is great. I didn't need to make any changes. I used creamy coconut milk, though. By the way, if you can't find 4 oz. ramekins, don't worry. You'll need the regular ones (7 oz.).

Braided Easter Egg Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
Very easy to make. Of all the recipes I use for bread so far, this is the more satisfying in terms of taste and texture. It did not take long to make either, 40 minutes in the oven, Great recipe. My wife, who is not a big bread fan, ate most of it.

Fabulous French Loaves

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
I always thought making bread was difficult. Not anymore! I even used all purpose flour and it turned out pretty good. I used half of the ingredients and it was no sweat. We will make it every week, if possible.

Dave's Low Country Boil

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
We just made this, but used dry crab boil. It was really good. We added 1/2 chopped onion and 2 garlic cloves. We also removed the potatoes, corn and sausage -after cooked- and some of the onion and garlic into a fry pan and gave them a stir over 1 tbsp of butter for 2 minutes. This made the taste even better.

Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
The right consistency. Too much salt, though. Sifting the flour is a great tip for newbies like me.

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
It was very easy to make, but the baking part is lacking proper instructions. I ended up baking 40 minutes and still the dough would not cook completely. Next time I am pre-baking the dough for about 10 min. maybe. Will update my review then according to the results.

Key Lime Pie IX

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
I followed the recipe very closely and it tasted good, but the meringue broke up a little bit and there was still liquid comming out of the filling when I cut it after chilled overnight. I am affraid even the 20 minutes I baked it is a short time. Maybe I can do it better next time.

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
I really tried to make this recipe work, but in the end it didn't turn out the way I expected. Maybe next time.
