Tahini-Battered Tofu

Reviewed: May 6, 2002
I had my doubts about this recipe, but I had some tahini and about-to-expire tofu that I wanted to use up. I should've trusted my instincts because this was AWFUL!!! (Sorry "Queenie") It was, in fact, inedible. I chose to bake it; maybe frying would have been better but I won't be giving this one another chance.

Cornish Finnish Michigan Pasties

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2002
My mother-in-law is a Finn from upper Michigan where pasties are practically an art form, so I had big shoes to fill! I decided on this recipe for my first attempt and they turned out GREAT!! I substituted onion powder for the chopped onions and omitted the MSG (allergies). The only snag that I ran into was due to the size of the dough rectangles. In my opinion, 6"x8" is too small and made for difficult sealing. I ended up making larger but fewer pasties than the recipe called for. They freeze beautifully! I just cooked 'em, cooled 'em, threw 'em into Ziploc baggies and tossed them in the freezer. This recipe is a definite keeper!! (Btw, my husband informs me that the only proper way to eat a pasty is with ketchup. He HATES it when my son and I use BBQ sauce!)

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
Very good! Relatively easy to make, though a *little* time consuming. I added 1 cup whole wheat flour and cut the all purpose flour to 2 cups. They were tasty and puffed up nicely. My kids love 'em so this is a keeper!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
I'm a hummus fanatic and this is one of the best I've found. It's now a regular around our kitchen. The only thing I do differently is to use roasted minced garlic from a jar and add 1/2 t. of cumin. Reserve the liquid from the garbanzo beans and add a little to the puree if it seems to be too thick. Pair this with Peppy's Pita Bread and you can't go wrong!

Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
I was looking for a way to get carrots into my toddler's diet and she (and daddy) really liked these. However, they weren't as big a hit with me and my older son. The molasses is a little overpowering for my taste (and I like molasses!) so I'll probably use less next time. I also substituted cardamom for the allspice and topped 'em with a basic cream cheese frosting.

Awesome Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2003
Good recipe! I've got a very anti-veggie toddler but she LOVES these muffins, and everyone else likes them too. I chose to substitute applesauce for half of the oil and instead of frosting them I simply sprinkled a little granulated sugar on top before baking. It added just the right amount of sweetness for our tastes.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2004
Very good, easy to prepare. I added minced garlic and used dehydrated onions and basil (I was out of onions and marjoram). Leftover soup became VERY thick, so I thinned it out with either milk or chicken broth. Will definitely make this again.

Cooking Light magazine's Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2004
Very good tabbouleh recipe! Gave some to my friend (who'd never had it before), she and her hubby raved about it and asked for the recipe. My only change was to add 1/2 of a seeded and chopped cucumber. And this really should be eaten within a day or two as it will tend to get soggy. Thanks!

Mango Shortbread Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2004
Wow! Very rich, wonderful taste. Gave some to my neighbor and she immediately wanted the recipe, as did her daughter. My only change was to substitute whole wheat flour for one of the three cups of all purpose, and I used cardamom instead of cinnamon. Slicing fresh mango is a messy affair (I used 3 large ones), so next time I may use canned mango (find it at an asian food mkt. or in the ethnic aisle at the store).

Candied Kielbasa

Reviewed: May 3, 2004
Easy and tasty, though sweet. I served it over brown rice, to mixed reviews. I substituted bbq sauce for half of the ketchup. Think I'll try it next time with little hot links and maybe add more horseradish for some extra kick.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2004
This recipe is tasty and the fish stays very moist. However, it completely overpowers the delicate flavor of the tilapia. My son really likes this one so it's going into my recipe box.

Spam Musubi

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
I've been making spam musubi like this for years, except that I omit the oyster sauce, add a little ginger, bake the marinated spam at 350 deg F for 8-10 minutes, and sprinkle toasted black and white sesame seeds onto the molded rice. Here's a tip: use the spam can as a mold by CAREFULLY cutting the bottom out of it with an x-acto knife. Also, it helps if you use "pre-toasted" nori sheets. Untoasted nori can be tough. Another tip to keep the rice from sticking to your hands; have a bowl of water handy to wet your hands and the musubi mold.

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
Well, Jessica, I don't know whether to thank you or curse you! These are amazingly easy and WAY better than store bought chips. Which means I can now satisfy my crunchy/salty carb cravings whenever they strike; not necessarily a good thing for my waistline.=^(

Pizza Dough II

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
Excellent! I added some garlic powder and oregano for a little extra flavor. The dough that I froze cooked up just as well as the fresh. Upon tasting a pizza I made using this dough recipe my neighbor said "your pizza rocks!".

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
Very good. I didn't have cream or red wine vinegar on hand, so I used whole milk and balsamic vinegar. I think it really needs the cream. Will definitely make again.

Chicken Pot Pie VIII

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
To save time I used refrigerated pie crusts. I added some minced garlic, dried dill and poultry seasoning because the sauce seemed bland. Also, the first time I made this the sauce was too thin and I had way more than I needed to fill the pie. The second time I cut the broth to 2 cups, which worked out better. I also let the pie rest for about 20 minutes after baking which makes it firmer and easier to serve. My family and friends really like this recipe.

Rice with Lemon and Spinach

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
Good flavor, but I ended up adding way more lemon juice than was called for because it was so dry. I also used feta with herbs and added more of that also.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
We're fans of the fish tacos from Rubio's and this is the only recipe I've found that comes close. The sauce (I made it without capers) was especially tasty. I've also made this using tilapia and it works just fine.

Roasted Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
A nice alternative to chips and such, but a little bland. I'll definitely kick up the spices a bit next time. Like previous comments, I baked them at 350 deg for awhile, then turned it up to 400 for the last several minutes. Watch it closely; these can burn quickly.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
Very good! I only had half the amount of mushrooms needed so I subbed shredded green cabbage for the other half. My teenage son really like it as did I. Thanks!
