Spinach Pancakes

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
If you find they're not crispy enough, it's because you didn't drain the spinach well. I enjoyed mine very much. I seasoned with celery salt and garlic powder, in addition to the salt, pepper, and paprika already called for. I ate them with tzatziki sauce.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
These are always a huge hit. I like to crush some starlight mints or candy canes into the mixture, nice and fine. It gives it a perfect wintry bite. These are ridiculously simple and amazingly decadent.

Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
My only change would be to add more sugar to the dry mix. I'd prefer it a bit sweeter. Would also consider dusting it with confectioner's.

Carrot Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
Always a hit when I make it and goes well with sweet mains. Allow me to suggest the following pairing: Pineapple chicken tenders (search it on allrecipes.com) I used the marinade (boiled, of course) on top of the rice and it was wonderful. This is the sauce: 1 cup pineapple juice 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1/3 cup light soy sauce Just boil that and pour it on. I also add garlic and ginger - whatever you like.

Chocolate Earthquake Cake I

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
It was very difficult to sit there and watch this beauty bake, it was just so tempting. I cut the sugar in half, as others suggested and also swirled the cream cheese/butter/sugar mixture through the chocolate. I might consider dusting my bundt pan for this one next time, as just a few bits stuck to the pan (although I did enjoy eating those). Really a wonderful cake. Can't wait to share it with others.

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
This has become one of our favorite recipes. To maximize the flavors and contrast in textures, here is what I do. 1) In grilling the chicken (which I do on an indoor grill), I start at a low heat, then when the chicken is pretty much cooked, I fire the heat up to get a nice crunch and some grill marks. This helps caramelize the balsamic vinegar, which is important to me because I don't like things that are doused in balsamic. Also by cooking primarily at low heat the chicken is more moist. 2) For the tzatziki (which to me is the highlight of the dish), I add more garlic, at least doubling it. (This was the recommendation of a few Greek coworkers of mine). I find the tzatziki to be outrageously good, I love it. Also, if you keep a kosher home or are lactose intolerant, use the Tofutti brand sour cream and omit yogurt (this is what I do). You won't be disappointed, but you might be amazed at how good it is!

Nina's Hearty Bean Bonanza Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Don't be turned off by the amount of ingredients. It's well worth the effort.

Rocky Road Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
I haven't eaten them yet but they look great. Let me make a suggestion, please. Having never made caramel apples before, I didn't realize this, but I'm glad I learned and can share with others. When you drop the apples in the boiling water ever so briefly, you really have to dry them immediately. Here is what happened to me. I dropped an apple at a time into the boiling water. Then I pulled each one out and let it sit on the towel. However, by the time I went to dry all 6 (after all were dipped) the wax was still there. So I put them all back in and made the mistake of leaving them in too long. The boiling water changed the color and consistency. It started the cooking process very quickly. Be careful.

Best Bourbon Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
Very good. I didn't use soy sauce and didn't have enough brown sugar, so I substituted a cup of brown sugar and 2 tbsp of molasses. The sauce was pretty sweet, but I also didn't have crushed red pepper flakes. Some spicy Mrs. Dash at the end didn't punch it up enough, but I am sure some spice will cut the sweetness nicely. My own personal twist: with about 5 minutes of cook time left, I diced a peach into fairly large chunks and threw them in. They came out soft and delicious. Served over rice.
