Colombian Lentils

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
Very good recipe.. I love cumin so it was up my alley.. added a bit of garlic, pepper, and pinch of chili flakes to "up it". It needed extra water as many have commented just to keep from going dry. Also, around my house this was only a healthy ONE serving.. not three.. LOL..(I did use it as the "main" dish with a bit of yogurt) Keep up the good work. I used sweet potatoes instead of yellow just because I needed to use it. A good, easy, quick dish.

Kielbasa and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
I enjoyed this dish, but admit I did not have caraway seed, so didn't add that part. Otherwise it was fine... perhaps a bit bland. If I didn't it again I'd surely brown the meat seperately and add near the end. I did shred rather than "wedge" my cabbage. I like my cabbage "crispier", but I'm sure many people grew up with a version of this and it has a home in their hearts. Maybe I'll try it again if I decide to pick up some caraway.

Skillet Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
I tried this today.. it was quite a "shock" to my taste as I don't think I've ever had cabbage with cream cheese. It tasted fine, if a bit bland. Those who don't particularly like cabbage should find this fine as it doesn't taste "cabbagy". It was VERY filling also.. the cream cheese and butter make it quite rich. Not my favorite cabbage recipe, but I could see myself making it again. Thanks.

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I enjoy near-Eastern dishes and flavors. I have a mixed review .. Hot, I find this dish be 3 star without anything exceptional about it, but at room temperature it's great (4+ star) with a good aroma and a complex mix of flavors and hearty "umami" lentil taste. I served it with my own home made plain yogurt and pita bread. As someone else pointed out, starting the onions cooking at the same time as the lentils, etc is advised. Since I used brown rice instead of more traditional forms I started it in the lentils at the same time as it takes considerably longer to cook than "standard" white rice. From the reviews this seems "comfort food" that comes from growing up with it. I did use 1 Tbs cummin and 1/4 tsp of cinnamon with it. To my taste I would only serve this dish at room temp, and BEST make it at least a few hours ahead so the flavors can meld.. then it's beautiful.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
These are fine cookies.. like some others, I too think next time I'll double the oatmeal and reduce the sugar and salt to suit my particular tastes, but they do work as they are. I did use whole wheat flour so I added about a Tbs of milk to the mix to account for the extra moisture absorbtion

Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
Nice basic recipe.. I would only have a few comments (NOTE: I made 1/2 the recipe with fresh broccoli flowerettes instead of frozen if anyone wants to note that) 1. This is a bit bland for my taste but this is not bad.. always easier to add than delete.. :) I approximately doubled the seasoning plus a spot of ground hot peppers for the zip and the capsasin ) If served cold of course it would need even more seasoning (and it is good cold!) 2. The potatoe taste is very prominent 3. I feel the soup needs a finish.. I used plain yogert "mushed in" just at serving.. significant improvement in my opinion.. suppressed the potatoe and added a TANG that zipped up the recipe a bit.. cream or even butter or olive oil might also be good.. I didn't try those. Still.. a good recipe! Thanks
