White Sauce
This sauce is wonderful! It is a great base :) I added a crushed garlic clove, basil, parsley, pepper, salt, and a bit of parmesean cheese, like suggested. I then mixed it with pasta and it was a wonderfully cheesy dinner! I also use this basic recipe with margarine instead of butter and soy milk- 1/2 as much) as a substitute for cheese in quiches when I cook non-dairy; i just cook it down until it is a thick consistency. It tastes amazing and has wonderful texture.

Trinidad Stewed Chicken
great recipe! a couple suggestions: 1) I could not get my brown syrup/oil mixture to turn syrupy, so after a few frustrating tries, i added a bit (about 2 TBS of hot water and it worked beautifully. 2) I added olive oil to the garlic/onion/cilantro marinade so it was a bit wetter when marinating. 3) the coconut milk and red pepper flakes are not optional! they make the dish amazing! 4) serve with rice. It is a wonderful complement to the dish.

Easy Hamantaschen
These were great, but I have a couple of recommendations that I plan to use next time I make them. They puff up quite a bit, so I suggest either making them a bit thinner or putting in about 1 tsp (instead of two) of fruit preserves, to prevent any running. It also was a bit bland, so I would add a bit of orange or lemon zest next time to bring out a different flavor. I also substituted margarine for 1/4 cup of the oil to give it a bit more body, and my dough rolled out beautifully after refrigerating overnight. I also had to bake about 20 minutes, but that just may be my oven. I want to use this recipe as another cookie base and can't wait to experiment!
