Drunken Peachanero Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
Very good! I doubled the peaches (used only canned) and reduced the tequila & habanero, but it was not too spicy. Could use full amounts next time.

English Muffin Loaves

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
I used 5-1/4 cups of flour. Came out great.......lots of nooks and crannies! Good taste. Bland, but not in a bad way. Very easy to make.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
Excellent recipe! I followed it 99% exactly as written. The only thing I did differently was I did not add all of the dry ingredients at once. I added in 3 increments, just mixing in after each addition. I used a melon baller to scoop the dough with. The cookies came out light & puffy, not flat at all. More like little domes that are exactly as promised: crispy around the edges and chewy in the center. The flavor can't be beat!

Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
Excellent! I used sour cream because I bought the wrong yogurt (rats!). Also, used dried dill because I can not get fresh in Mexico. I added some chopped parsley for freshness. All in all, the flavor was very good.

Chipotle Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
Excellent! Even Alfonso liked it! Hurray!! I omitted the green bell as I did not have it. Which was OK because I'm thinking it may not taste that good in this dish.....not sure if I'd like the flavor with the chipotle. The cilantro was a nice touch. Also, it was very easy to make.

Taco Pizza

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
I really enjoyed this. Made this with leftover pizza dough I had on hand. Used my own beans and green salsa that I pureed. Used chorizo instead of beef that I simmered in a bit of water with chopped onion & jalapeno. Used a combo of cheeses - mozzarella and cheddar. Turned out great, although got a bit soggy after sitting. Next time I would prebake the crust and not mix the beans and salsa, but put on a layer of each. I did not have any Dorito's on hand, but will add them next time as I can just imagine how they would enhance the dish.

Chef John's Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
3-1/2 stars. Can not get buttermilk in Mexico so I subbed with yogurt. Chicken was quite moist and tender. But the flavor was not what I had hoped. I did add a few more spices but was not totally happy with the flavor. Needs to be fried at a lower temp as the breading browned too much and the chicken was not cooked through.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
Followed the recipe exactly as written and it came out well. But it did not have the flavor of good pita bread. Next time add just a touch of honey and use EVOO.

Orange Cake

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
Pretty good. The cake was a bit dry but had good flavor. May be somewhat my fault as I used regular flour in place of the cake flour (all I had at the time). The glaze also had a nice flavor. Would make again.

Traditional Gyro Meat

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
Not too bad, although a bit dry. I used ground pork in place of the lamb (Can not get lamb in Mexico). Tweaked the seasoning a bit by frying a small patty, tasting, adjusting. Did that twice til I was happy with the taste. By the time the sauce was added to the sandwich, it tasted great, just too dry.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
Pretty good. A bit too sweet and too thick for my taste. Next time, thin it out a bit and reduce honey by half. Maybe a bit more garlic too.

Grandma McAndrews' Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
3-1/2 stars. Dough was quite wet. Could be because I was short 1 cup of flour and substituted cake flour. Finished product is quite bland and a bit dry.

Peppermint Meringues

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
Very Good, but difficult to maintain temperature, which is key, in my Mexican oven. Browned slightly which gave them a different flavor. Very sweet, but don't know if reducing sugar is a good idea.

Awesome Egg Salad with a Kick

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
Very good! I halved the amount of dijon & horse radish to suit Alfonso's taste. Also added half of a large jalapeno, seeded and diced fine.

Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
Pretty good. I used mozzarella (all I had on hand) and it was still good. I bet cheddar would be awesome. For the bread I used English Muffin Loaves from this site.

Easy Cheese and Garlic Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
As others noted, these are more like biscuits in texture. Flavor was OK. But I think I prefer the knock-off recipe for Red Lobster Biscuits.

Souvlaki

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
3 1/2 Stars. Did not have the traditional Souvlaki flavor. Not sure what was off......maybe the soy sauce?

Mom's Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
So So. Doesn't make much frosting. And it was very loose. I added cream cheese to bump up the flavor and quantity and to thicken.
