Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
Added cucumbers as the most helpful reviews suggested. One of the times I made it I also put in some fresh mint leaves I had on hand.

Healthy General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Really tasty. I first made this with just the breaded chicken, and used it in a stir fry with some bottled sauce to save time. It was good. The second time I made the sauce as well and it was even better. This gets better every time I make it. Tastes fine without the MSG. I always make it with broccoli.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
These pancakes are awesome. Literally the best pancakes I have ever eaten. I make extra because even without syrup, they are yummy to nibble on later. This is one of those recipes where you have to follow the directions exactly. For instance, if you don't cook them on medium high heat, they don't fluff up as nicely.

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
I only made the chicken (I used a different tzatziki recipe). I was a little dubious that something so simple could turn out good, but in fact it was delicious. I added a couple cloves of garlic and an onion; I cooked it in a saucepan and included the marinade which I let cook down to a thick sauce/coating on the chicken.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
I didn't think it would be this easy to replicate spring rolls. Delicious! I left out the shrimp and basil and added cucumbers; I used buckwheat vermicelli in place of the rice vermicelli. I didn't have chili sauce so I substituted white vinegar (not as much of a stretch as you might think - chili sauce is basically tomato sauce, vinegar, sugar and spices.) The sauce came out really thin so in the future I think I will mix some corn starch into the water before mixing with the rest of the ingredients. My wife said I should make them again. She's been saying that a lot recently, thanks allrecipes :P

Indian Style Sheekh Kabab

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
I left out 3/4ths of the spices because I was going from memory. I was shocked, SHOCKED! when it came out a little bland. Actually it wasn't bad considering. I bet this recipe is awesome when in full force.

Traditional Gyro Meat

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
I am not from Greece, but I visited there once. The meat they use in the gyros there is rather dissimilar to what we get here in the US; basically simple, flame broiled pork. Also they put french fries on their gyros. All that has nothing to do with this recipe, which was delicious and tasted just like US restaurant gyro meat. I followed the recipe just as described and it was worth the effort.

Green Eggs and Ham Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
Green eggs and ham came out all runny. I do not like them Moneypenny. I would not eat them with some changes. I would not eat them cooked on ranges. I would not eat them with thyme or garlic. Never mind that yucky Bisquick. The thought of this fills me with dread. Try the Spinach Quiche instead.

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
I used only the marinade part of the recipe. It knocked my socks off. I found one but I'm still looking for the other... It may have joined its brethren departed from the clothes dryer. My wife liked it too, as did our unborn child. Thanks to the recipe author for a wonderful evening.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
This is very similar to the sloppy joe recipe I cobbled together from various other recipes. The only differences are that I add some Worcestershire sauce, and I use tomato paste instead of ketchup. It's delicious.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
It was my wife's birthday so I asked her what kind of frosting she wanted on her cake. I read off a few reviews to help her choose. She told me "make me that one with the husband who wants a bucket full," so I did. She ate half of it before I had a chance to put it on her cake.

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
I did not make this recipe. However, somehow just reading it inspired me to make the best potato salad of my life, despite using the same old recipe as I always have. I'm not sure if it reached back into the space-time continuum to retroactively make my recipe better, or if I used the same ingredients but slightly altered instructions (e.g. mix some chopped egg into the salad, as well as putting some sliced egg on top.) Either way, for the inspiration, I give five stars!
