Butter Mochi Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2015
Another variation on this recipe is to mix the red bean paste right into the batter. The cake will be colored by it, and equally delicious! Loved the suggestion to use a water bath when baking; that would simulate cooking the cake in a steamer.

The Best Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2015
Anytime I see someone use dried chilis in a recipe I know it is going to be more Mexican and less "Taco Bell". Authentic Mexican food is not sweet, and usually has more chilis and less tomato than Americans would think. I think this is a nice enchilada sauce. The dried anchos are integral. If you can't find a Mexican tiendita or a food store that sells them, it might be worth it to purchase them on line. They are dried, and last almost indefinitely in a sealed storage bag. Buen provecho!

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
This recipe is pretty basic and authentic; i have been making cabbage rolls (Halupki) for at least 40 years and learned from my Slovak father. Salt pork topped the pot! Tomato soup is very authentic; i have a Slovak cookbook from 1952 and those halupki recipes all call for tomato soup. My mother used to use Hunt's Tomato Sauce for hers, and so i like it better that way personally. A couple of suggestions to make it easier: take the cabbage and cut around the core; straight down, to cut where the leaves attach to the core. Put the cabbage in a pot, fill with water and bring to boil. You will see the cabbage start to turn a brighter color, you can then cut the leaves off the core and pull them off with a fork, as you use them, allow the cabbage head to sit in simmering water for more leaves to soften. As for the rice, we boiled water, added the rice, turned of the heat and let it sit for 3-5 min. then drain. Now it is par-boiled and you can add it directly to the raw meat, with a little tomato sauce, a LOT of salt and pepper and if you like, some onion and/or garlic powder. Two final suggestions; put about a half cut of water in the pot with the stuffed leaves, so that they do not scorch, and finally, add a few capfuls of vinegar to the finished product. The vinegar helps prevent "gas" from the cabbage, and also adds a little flavor. My family sometimes cooked any extra cabbage; when we ate it, we would use some of the pot sauce, a dab of butter(no saltpork) and more vinegar.

Bacon-y Bok Choy

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
This was pretty good! It IS spicy since you "bloom" the red pepper flakes in the oil, and then cook everything else in that oil; therefore it has an authentic taste. Is good with just rice or as a side dish for a meat entree. Thanks for posting this recipe!!

Green Goddess Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
5 stars, because it is delicious and also...if you don't want to eat anchovies; don't make this dressing. OR you could be a vegetarian, and JUST leave out the anchovies.

Wedge Salad with Elegant Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
I just made this dressing, and it is yummy! It's a lot different than bottled; which is a great thing! I used 4 oz. of blue cheese b/c that was all i had on hand. But i think if i had it, i'd add another 4 oz.! Because i am diabetic, i only added 2 teaspoons of sugar. Also cooked up some bacon to crumble over the wedge. Love the chopped tomatoes; esp. now when they come out of the garden. For convenience, I used an old mayonnaise jar to shake everything together; first everything but the cheese; after a few shakes added the cheese and gave it a couple more shakes! Great salad cabanagrl!! I will eating this often!!

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2013
I followed the proportions, per the recipe and it came out perfect! My regular family recipe uses mayo, and in place of bacon we use pickle. I LOVE this recipe!! Use all the mayo, if you are a mayo fan, because, as you mix it, it becomes creamy from the breakdown of the potatoes, which should be tender enough that they slip off a fork easily when pierced. I didn't chill the potatoes or eggs, but when they were about room-temperature, i mixed everything together. I sprinkled a little smoked paprika on top as decoration. THANKS for a GREAT potato salad recipe!! This is definitely a keeper!! :)

Simon and Garfunkel Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2012
No, Heinz gravy in a jar is not home-made, but it comes close! Now add a big chunk of beef and slow cook it in the gravy with spices, and that gravy is a whole lot more homemade! I think this is a good recipe for a crock pot, which doesn't necessitate making gravy as an additional step. Love the flavors. Use of spices is your judgement call. Why not mix everything in a small bowl and then decide how much you want to add? I liked the idea of coating the meat with the spices and then browning, i think it added a dimension of flavor! But then again, it was another step of work!! Either way, this is a delicious, EASY roast dinner with gravy, that cooks while you do something else!! Good work Desimone!! I love it and will make this again for sure!!

Broken Spaghetti Risotto

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
Oh Yes Chef John!! This was delicious!! You can find a product called Fideo in the Latin section, which is small packages (8 oz.) of broken spaghetti, if you don't want the mess of breaking spaghetti into pieces. You can also add some chopped onion when browning the pasta, and a can of diced tomatoes with the broth to get a totally different flavor. Either way, you will be tempted to eat the whole pan yourself!! Thanks!!

Ronaldo's Beef Carnitas

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
EXCELLENT! Just finished making this. I used 4 oz. can of Ortega diced jalepenos in place of green chili peppers, baked for 4 hours for 4 lbs., and it came out excellent. I can see where you could double the other spices if you like a more intense flavor, but as is, it is authentic. Usually, a chili based salsa is offered to add more flavor/spice/heat at the table. I developed my own recipe after eating tacos in Mexico and here in mexican homes, using a different cooking technique. This beef is easier to cook, requires no attention once you put it into the oven, and is very flavorful. Highly recommend this recipe!! Serve with finely chopped onion, cilantro, avocado and sour cream. Some even add matchstick-sliced radishes to add. Offer soft hot corn tortillas and chili salsa to garnish as desired. Thank you Ronaldo!!

SPICY Enchiladas Verdes de Queso

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
Thanks for an authentic recipe, and for not altering it; otherwise it would not be authentic; that's the problem with most "Mexican" recipes; well-meaning souls try to dumb it down for Americans, and lose the authentic flavor. Very good!!

Hobo Beef and Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
This is hands down the best soup recipe i have ever gotten off this site. It is delicious, nutritious, easy, filling and pretty good calorically. I added about 28 ounces of water to the 32 ounces of broth to make it a little soupier, along with a tsp. of salt and 1/2 tsp. black pepper. I have made it many, many times, and usually add a jalepeno pepper (left whole but with 2 slits cut in it) when browning the onions, etc. And then remove the jalepeno before adding the potatoes, etc.. It gives the soup a nice flavor.
