Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
Delicious. The recipe made a 9x5 loaf pan and a 7x11 baking dish (which I will cover with lemon icing and take to work). I made quite a few changes to make it better/more nutritious. I replaced all 3 cups of sugar with 2 cups of honey, used white whole wheat flour, milk instead of water, added walnuts. I halved the oil and was going to add applesauce but was out, so I threw in some greek yogurt I had left. My alterations have made this an incredibly healthy AND delicious treat!

Crabmeat Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
I'm not so sure about the cooking instructions on this recipe. After pre-baking my crust for 5 minutes, I had to leave my quiche in the oven at least 35-40 minutes. I don't know why but the crust on the bottom didn't look cooked through. The quiche tastes good, but it's a bit moist. I cut out the bell peppers, used canned lump crab, and didn't add the wine since I didn't have a bottle open. Instead of swiss I used a mexican blend and a bit of shredded parmesan on top - definitely had to use 1 cup or more. I might make this again with some changes.

Green Hot Sauce (Salsa Verde)

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
Pretty good recipe but poor instructions. This recipe does not say to drain the water, which you have to do before you put the cooked veggies in the blender. I sauteed the garlic separately since I knew I wouldn't be able to strain it out of the water. As another reviewer suggested, I added lime and some cilantro to mine once everything else is in the blender. Lime makes everything better. I probably used 3/4 of the salt. This salsa is very spicy, in fact I don't think I've ever made one this hot. I'm a bit disappointed since I made this for a party and it might be too much for some people. I used 16 tomatillos, 1 1/2 onions, and 8 serranos, and it was still very, very hot. Next time I would only use 4-5 serranos, but I like my verde salsa relatively mild to medium.

Portuguese Custard Tarts - Pasteis de Nata

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
The pastries taste good but the dough is really underbaked. Also the instructions for this recipe are poor - the recipe doesn't indicate the temperature for making the stovetop custard.

Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
Wow! I'm impressed with how well these turned out, considering they don't have any white flour in them. They are delicious! I added almost a teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter - definitely essential if you want a flavorful cookie. They are pretty sweet so the sugar could be reduced.
