Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
This was pretty good. I used an emulsion blender to thicken it up a bit-- just put the blender stick in the pot and puree about a quarter or half of the soup to make it more "stewy". Lamb was nice and tender and it had a good flavor. It was definitely better as leftovers, so if you have time to make it ahead of time, I'd recommend that.

Baklava

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
This was really good-- but it made ALOT, so be prepared to give some away or eat it all! I tried freezing half, but it didn't come out of the freezer nearly as good as I'd hoped.

Basic Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
I've made this a few times and it's become my go-to chicken salad recipe. You can't mess it up and it's addictive. The flavor's best the next day, so make it ahead if you can... but it's good no matter what!

New York Cheesecake III

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
I made this for my husband for father's day and I'm about to make it again for his birthday. Follow the recipe exactly as written-- leave it in the oven for an hour and then fridge overnight. It was perfect! Honestly, I've made tons of cheesecakes through the years (it's my husband's favorite), and this was the best one I've ever made.

Easy Pie Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
I tried this out of desperation after I had mixed up a bowl of stuff for a pot pie and realized I didn't have any pie crusts. It was perfect- and so easy. I didn't find it too salty as other reviewers did, I think the salt in it would probably give a good counterbalance to a sweeter pie also (like pecan or a cream pie) and I plan to try it with one of those in the future.

Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
I've made this recipe exactly as written twice now and it's fantastic. Use this, print it and put it in your recipe box. You won't need another lamb recipe. Even family that aren't lamb lovers loved this leg of lamb.

Tzatziki

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
Made this as written and it was delicious. It still doesn't quite compare to what I've had at authentic Greek restaurants (in Greece or Europe), but it was as close as I've gotten in homemade. I might try some Greek seasoning next time. This was great as a dip with some warm pita bread and I used the leftovers to top turkey burgers-- which was delicious!

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
Made this exactly as written and it was delicious. It has a little (tiny) kick that adds great flavor, but if you have kids that can't take any heat, you may want to scale down or omit the crushed red pepper.
