Citrus Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
After reading the reviews about the recipe being bland, yet having all the ingredients in the house, I decided to cut the chicken into strips and marinate in orange juice and crushed garlic while I gathered all the other ingredients. After browning the chicken, I sauteed the onion with some garlic before adding the broth, juice and rice. Two simple changes really added a lot of flavor! I'll make this again.

Passover Apple Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
I made this to practice the dessert for Seder night, and I was skeptical when I making this recipe. I had to press the "bottom" part of the batter into the pan, it was so thick! And when I took it out of the oven, it was very oily (what appeared like oil). I let it cool for a few hours, and when the boyfriend tasted it, he said it didn't taste like Pesach and he would've believed me if I had told him it wasn't! That's the highest compliment, seeing as he dreads Passover food. Thank you!

Foolproof Potato Latkes

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Phenomenal recipe! My first time making latkes on my own and all my guests were raving. I don't own a food processor so I peeled and grated the potatoes and onion. I added a couple of dashes of pepper and garlic powder. The recipe made a lot, depending on how big your latkes are. I even sent someone home with the recipe. This is a holiday staple recipe for us now.

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Simple recipe, but WAY too much salt. I think it would be perfect with about half of the salt.

Ginger and Spice Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Delicious and simple, these came out better than I expected! I pressed them down a little bit and them came out with a crispy shell and soft inside. Even the bf, who doesn't like sweets and only crunchy cookies, declared these his new favorite. I sprayed the measuring cup with Pam before measuring the molasses so it wouldn't stick. Thanks!

Chocolate Mousse Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
This was phenomenal! I made this for the Passover seder we went to (with a special crust) and it was devoured! The coffee really makes the flavor of the chocolate. It was phenomenal! Definitely chill overnight. Thanks for the great recipe!

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
Delicious and took barely any time to prep! 30 min on the stovetop (put on a timer) and we had a delicious satiating meal. I didn't have any 5-spice powder, and I doubt they sell it here in Israel. I was out of red pepper flakes, so I threw in two shakes of cayenne pepper. No need for thickening the sauce afterwards, it reduced to the perfect amount. A1so, I only realized after prepping the sauce that I was short two chicken breasts (which was fine since it's the two of us), and the sauce amt was just right anyway, so I recommend doubling the sauce. Add a veggie as a side, and this meal is a keeper!

Nutmeg Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
This delicious cake has a very dense crumb which made it easy to decorate. I made a double layer cake with a crumb coating, and it was beautiful and scrumptious. I enjoyed it a lot - Thank you! Followed the recipe exactly.

Easy Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Fabulous! A cinch to put together - I was able to study and check on the sauce in intervals. I made the stated serving size amount and froze it in quart size zip lock bags for when we don't feel like cooking during the week. To my amazement it reheated with the same flavor and texture as the day I made it! Highly recommended. Thanks for the recipe!

Broccoli in Roast Chicken Drippings

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
This was convenient and very easy! I cooked the broccoli for 10 min in the drippings from my roast chicken. Next time I will degrease the juices first to cut down on fat. Thank you for a great idea!

Lemon Filling

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
This filling is great! I use it every time I make a yellow cake, and I have no problem with it going out the sides of the cake. A trick I use is to make a "barrier" around the edge of the bottom layer with butter cream, and only put filling in to the edge of the butter cream ring, not over. Happy Baking! Thanks for a great recipe!

Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
The pumpkin flavor I have been looking for! I used instant vanilla pudding because that's what I had and doubled the pumpkin pie spices and it came out moist with a delicious pumpkin flavor! Perfect cake for autumn, I'm enjoying it now with some hot tea for breakfast. It was done after exactly 55 min for me in a silicone bundt pan. I love how easy it was to throw together. This will be making an appearance at my Thanksgiving table!

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
This was delicious and very simple to throw together. I had it warm for dinner and my boyfriend and I both enjoyed it. I was a bit worried about adding the chili sauce but its the perfect amount to add flavor and not too much bite (I don't like spicy food). I look forward to having it tomorrow cold! Thanks for a great recipe.

Chili con Carne II

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
This was my first venture into making chili and it came out very well! I was light handed with the paprika because i figured I could always add more. The cinnamon really adds a special flavor to it. I did halve the cloves because my bf hates them :) We made a TON and we are looking forward to freezing and reheating it for the next few weeks.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
Next time I would put much less dried spices, it felt like too much for the amount of veggies. Other than that, it was what it was supposed to be. A great accompaniment to chicken, thank you!

Spinach Lasagna III

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
This was my first go at lasagna and it was the best I have ever tasted! Granted, I unfortunately have not have lasagna that often because I do not mix meat and dairy together. I watched the video on AR of this recipe and it really helped me. It cut beautifully after letting it rest for 15 min and provided us leftovers for the whole week (and we had guests). This will become a staple in our home. Thank you!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Delicious and moist with a great corn flavor! Made to go with chili con carne tonight and this came out as a great accompaniment. Not too sweet, nor too heavy; a perfect light crumb. The first time my boyfriend had cornbread and he loved it! Thanks Willow's Mom!

Cold Tuna Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
This was delish, reminds me of the pasta salad my Grandma makes. I didnt have any Italian dressing in the house, so I used "Italian Dressing Mix" from this site and it came out great! Very flavorful. I also threw in a diced cucumber for something extra. Thank you for a yummy salad. My bf couldn't stop eating it!

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
A phenomenal quiche! Simple to put together, easy to alter (I added tomatoes to the egg mixture for some color) and absolutely delectable! I made these in a cupcake tin for bite size quiches for a brunch, with no problems. Made 21 individual ones in a 12-muffin tin.

Viva Madrid Spanish Chicken

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
This would be 5 stars all the way if you halve the amount of chili. I didn't, and therefore it has a star deducted. We could tell that underneath the overwhelming spiceness, there was a delicious recipe. The dates truly add to the dish! Don't skimp out on them. It really made this a special dish, and one we will make again.
