Tabbouleh III

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
I used this recipe as a base and was glad about the warnings about the oil. I actually used more veggies than the recipe called for and used 2/3's of the oil. More than plenty. Things I changed: Used Whole Wheat cous cous in place of bulgar and added later after the rest of the mixture had been marinating for an hour to soak up the extra juices. I added a higher ratio of lemon for a brighter taste...lemon also cuts the "hotness" of any type of onion or garlic. Used a small shallot instead of garlic & green onion and added 3 large kale leaves chopped really fine to give this salad some sustenance. My family loved it! If you want to use kale, chop this ingredient and the shallots/onion or garlic first and let sit in the lemon. Raw kale is a hearty leaf and takes some time to soften; otherwise it can be a bit chewy. Great accompaniment to replace both veg and starch!

Guinataan Chicken Adobo

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
I used chicken thighs with the bones and skins but a lot of fat came out of the process before I added the coconut milk. I probably would try to extract the fat or use white meat. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out great! A crowd pleaser for both kids and adults.

Mom's Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
My hubby is a chef and I have 2 little ones so you know I'm cooking for a tough crowd. I was looking for ways to cook with lower fat and came across this recipe. I used the Trader Joe's multi-grain pancake mix...followed the recipe except a splash more milk (we like thinner pancakes and they cook faster), less cinnamon and a little bit of vanilla as someone else had suggested. If anyone has used multi-grain pancake mix before, the results tend to be dry and dense. The applesauce made these pancakes much lighter and moist...they were a big hit. It also added a little sweetness and I like the fact we are getting more fiber from the apples.
