Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
What can I say with all the reviews? But this was a great dish, albeit a few changes were made. I had 1 cup canned, diced tomatoes in place of the tomato sauce, and I used 2 cans coconut milk in place of the yogurt. It was really wonderful - I added some hot red chili to kick it up, but it was still good without it.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: May 14, 2004
To make it thicken the way the packet seasoning does, add 1/4 cup of corn flour or fine cornmeal to the mix. And to make it authentic, use Mexican Oregano - a spice that is available usually in small packets in the Mexican section of the grocery store.

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: May 5, 2004
These are wonderful when subsituting different kinds of nuts. I used my mother's favorite - pistachios - for Mother's Day. The cookies had a beautiful light green hue. I've also subsituted macadamias with great results.

Khoresht Fesenjaan (Chicken with Pomegranate Sauce)

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2004
A very kind friend made this dish for me as a gift. It has an extremely "exotic" flavor, brought about surely by the cardamom, so I wouldn't recommend this for kids or picky eaters. However, the chicken was tender and the sauce (although a horrible drab brown color) was bursting with flavors. I probably wouldn't make this myself again, but enjoyed having it made for me.

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2004
I've made this cake twice and both times it was moist, dense (like banana bread) and turned out perfectly.Beware: the cake by itself is very sweet! I found two of my guests scraping off the frosting, and my husband complained it was too sweet for him. On the same note - I had another guest eating all the extra frosting with a spoon! (the frosting is divine...)Next time I make it, I will subract about 1/2 cup of sugar from the cake portion of the recipe to compensate. (2 1/8ths cups of sugar is outrageous for a cake recipe)

Tomato Bacon Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2003
Very easy recipe. Mix some dijon mustard with the mayonaisse to give it more of a kick and use any type of cheese that is your favorite. Chopped scallions make a nice garnish.

Sweet Corn Tomalito

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2003
I was THRILLED to find this, as I loved the tomalito served at Chevy's but couldn't find a recipe that matched it in flavor. This has the same sweetness and texture as the tomalito served at Chevy's. Thank you for posting!!

Bean Potato Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2003
The flavor of potatoes in Mexican food is actually not as unusual as it sounds. Some traditional Mexican foods have potatoes in the ingredients...just usually not mashed with milk. I recommend microwaving them whole and then cubing them & sauteing with the other ingredients. (skipping the milk of course) This provides a little more texture to the enchiladas. The only other thing I added was a few roasted, chopped green chiles that I had leftover from another recipe. These enchiladas would be great for vegetarians, but my husband (the avid meat eater) liked them too!

Easy Pineapple Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2003
This recipe has no oil in it, which is the reason for the "tough, chewy, bar-like texture" and the no-rise problems that the other reviewers talk about. A cake usually needs some fat (more than what's just in the eggs) to provide moisture, flavor, and stability to the cake structure. Fat is an essential part of any cake. I wonder if the author simply forgot to add the oil to the recipe?
