Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2003
What a hit! I made this for the adults at my son's birthday party, and figured a few people would enjoy it. What an understatement. When it came out of the oven, I couldn't get anyone away from this dish! They all hovered over it until every last bite had been consumed. I toasted rye bread and cut them into quarters for dipping. I also used a combination of swiss and mozzarella cheese for the topping, as I knew not everyone was crazy about swiss cheese. It was fantastic and I know it will be a requested dish in the future.

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
This was outstanding! I took one of the other reviewers' tips, and so I added 3/4 cup of heavy cream and a little fresh nutmeg. I also doubled the amount of bacon. It was sinfully delicious and even my kids were going on and on about how the dinner 'rocked'! Definitely company worthy also. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Clam Sauce with Linguine

Reviewed: May 30, 2005
We all loved this. I did make a few changes though. Instead of 1/2 a cup of butter, I used 1/4 cup of butter, and a 1/4 cup of olive oil. I also doubled the garlic because we love it. I undercooked the pasta by a minute or two, and added some pasta water to the sauce, to thicken it up a bit. Then I added the pasta to the sauce and cooked it for a few minutes to absorb the sauce better. I would definitely make this again.

Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2003
We loved these! I used regular bacon, and it worked out fine. I also marinated the chicken and green onions separately from the mushrooms, and then used the mushroom marinade to baste the kebabs. I thought I had way too much food (I doubled the recipe), but there were no leftovers. The only thing I would do differently next time, would be to use fresh pineapple, rather than canned.

Corn and Zucchini Melody

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2003
What a wonderful sidedish this was! My whole family enjoyed it more than the pork roast I served it with. I was too lazy to use corn from a cob, so I just thawed some frozen corn, and I accidentally bought Colby cheese, but it tasted great. I also diced up the bacon before cooking it, as I find it easier than crumbling it afterwards. This will be a regular dish from now on.

Knedliky - Czech Dumpling with Sauerkraut (Zeli)

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
I can finally make my grandmother's dumplings! I followed another reviewer's advice, and left out the baking soda. I also only used 2 eggs. My grandmother always shaped her dumplings using her wet hands, so that's what I did and it worked out perfectly. As for the sauerkraut, I did my grandmother's. She always made hers with caraway seeds, chopped onions and brown sugar, so that's what I did. Made a pork roast in the slow cooker with the zeli and I had a childhood dinner I begged for! I don't have a dumpling slicer (but my grandmother is giving me hers), so I used thread to slice them. The leftover dumplings were cubed and I made another childhood favourite....egg dumplings. They were perfect!

Dave's Mocha Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2003
I'm so glad that I decided to try this, despite the fact that there was only one review. It was fantastic! I loved how the sauce thickened as it simmered, and it tasted great over rice. Next time I'll try this with chicken breasts, but I think it would be fabulous as a sauce for chicken wings, given how thick and caramelized the dish becomes. Thanks for sharing, Dave!

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2002
What a delicious soup. I used low sodium chicken broth, since I figured the bacon would lend enough salt to the recipe. I used half fat cream, and I think I could have easily used milk instead. I also used a hand blender to purée the potatoes, which made it thick and creamy. Served it with some homemade bread and it made for a wonderful rainy night supper.

Cheese Herb Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2002
A really delicious bread. I used fresh milk rather than the dry milk powder, and went with another reviewer's suggestion and used 3 tsp of Italian seasonings. It smelled wonderful when baking, and tasted great!

Passover Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2004
These are definitely for the chocolate lovers. Very fudgy! I did have trouble with the bake time. At 30 minutes, it was still really jiggly, and at 35 minutes, my knife came out totally batter coated. I ended up baking them for about 45 minutes. The insides were very moist, but the top and sides came out very hard and as a result, crumbled when I cut them. Nevertheless, they tasted great and the kids loved them.

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2002
This was a nice comfort meal, and I suspect it will be very nice during the cold weather. I added shredded sharp cheddar to the mashed potatoes, and then sprinkled some on top before baking. I also added some Worcestire sauce to the ground beef, for a little more flavour. The family enjoyed it.

Kalamata Olive and Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2003
I was rather skeptical while making this bread. It was extremely easy, but when I began kneading the dough, the entire filling burst through and all over my counter. I just managed the get the dough into a ball, pressed some of the filling onto the surface of the dough, and decided to try baking it anyways. It was wonderful! My husband, myself and our two young children polished off most of the loaf at dinner, and finished the rest for breakfast the next morning. Next time I make it (which will be soon), I'll just knead it altogether, and not worry about keeping the filling in the middle. Do try this delicious bread. We ate it with souvlaki and a Greek salad.

Passover Rolls I

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2004
These were pretty good. I thought they were rather difficult to work with, as the dough is very sticky. They had more like a cream puff shell consistency, but were still nice.

Zucchini Casserole II

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2003
This was very good. The only thing I might do next time, is to cook the onions a little before adding them to the casserole. I liked the taste, but for those who aren't wild about onions, it was a little strong. I also liked it a lot better the next day. A great sidedish, and a nice way of using up zucchini that threatens to take over your entire backyard!

Oatmeal Carmelitas

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
Wow! These are about as decadent as you can get. I had to leave out the walnuts due to allergies, so I used white chocolate chips in their place. I also doubled the recipe and baked them in a 9X13 pan. I baked the bottom crust an extra 5 minutes. Ooey, gooey and oh-so-delicious!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
This stuffing is so delicious! I had a 21 lb bird, so I doubled the recipe. I did add about ½ a cup extra of stock to make it a tad moister. Not only did it smell wonderful, but the taste is outstanding, and the cranberries added such a beautiful colour. This will become my standard recipe.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
This was fabulous! I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9X13 dish, which needed an extra 15 minutes of baking. It was devoured by everyone, and not one person didn't comment on how delicious it was. With the ingredients being so rich, it can't find it's way to our table on a weekly basis, but we'll definitely be thinking of excuses to make it on special occasions!

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2002
This was even better than I had expected. I used some of the other reviewers' suggestions. I used 2½ cups of low sodium chicken broth, ½ cup of white wine, sliced carrots, garlic and onions. Next time I might add sliced mushrooms and diced potatoes. My family just loved this! It was very filling, and I plan on making this on several cold, winter nights this year. Wonderful recipe!

Fragrant Chicken Curry

Reviewed: May 19, 2006
This was quite good and very easy to make. I added a slurry of cornstarch and water to the mix, so it would thicken up some more. I couldn't help but wonder what it might be missing.

Apple-Cinnamon Farfel Kugel

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2004
This was wonderful! The smell when it was baking, filled my entire house with cinnamon. It's so easy to make (if you have a food processor), and it was fantastic. I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9X13 pan for the same amount of time and it turned out fine. I wouldn't wait until Passover to make this dish again.
