Gefilte Fish

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
The technique worked just fine, and I'm glad to have a basis for making gefilte fish in the future. However, there were a couple of problems with this recipe, and I would not make it again for the following reasons: 1) very very bland. It tastes just barely decent with a good dose of horseradish, but it needed more salt and/or flavor. Next time I would try some marjoram or cinnamon, even if that departs with tradition. 2) far more problematic, the amounts are WAY off, unless by '8 servings' they meant '32 pieces of gefilte fish.' I bought appr. 4 pounds of ground fish, and it made about 40 servings. Certainly not 8. I would have made only half the recipe had I known!

Chicken, Fennel and Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Not a fan, the chicken was too dry. Otherwise the flavor was good, but if I were to try this recipe again I would use dark meat and not breasts.

Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I'm not Indian, so I can't attest to authenticity, but it was delicious. However, as a time-saver, I baked the eggplant already cut into cubes, and left skin on. It was just as good, and much much less time and labor.

Dilled Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
Excellent basic barley soup recipe. The (small) changes I made were to add some squash, no turkey, and red wine instead of wine. Seems to be a very forgiving recipe.

Black Cherry JELL-O Poke Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
I don't know what I did wrong, but I ended up with cake topped with Jello, nothing like the picture.

Middle Eastern Kibbeh

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
The taste was good, but I had a very hard time getting them to not fall apart while cooking. Some egg might be useful.

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
Also made a couple of changes, but nothing major. Made it vegetarian, and added some chickpeas to make it more hearty. Also was out of red onion, so used regular onion instead. Excellent flavor, enjoyed this recipe a lot.

Jenny's Black Forest Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
Decent, but nothing to write home about. Its a very good basic chocolate cake recipe (and works fine with soy milk) but other than being an extremely aesthetic dessert, I was not overly wowed by the flavors.
