Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
I just found this recipe 5 minutes ago, went strait to the kitchen to mix it up, and am enjoying it right now. Thank you!

Grandpa's Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Very yummy, though quite sweet. I wish I knew how to make it the same flavor but not quite as sweet... I've also used this recipe with brown sugar in place of white, and it makes for delicious caramel balls.

Veal Scaloppini with Lemon Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
This review is for the sauce only, which I served over pasta. In Italy last June I ate a delicious lemon cream pasta, and I've been wanting to know how to do it without curdling the cream. This recipe is pretty darn close, and will be exactly what I was looking for with some adjustments next time I make it. Thank you!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
Hmmm, I'm undecided. It's amazing that it actually works (although I had to leave them in the oven for 25 minutes total). The taste is good, but I still prefer the texture of classic flour peanut butter cookies. I'll give it another shot with creamy PB since I used crunchy this time.

Applesauce Doughnuts

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
Not really apple-flavored at all, was it supposed to be? I never had applesauce donuts before so I'm not sure how they should taste. Anyway, if I make them again, I will at least put more cinnamon and nutmeg to have the apple spices and pretend that it tastes like apple instead of just dough. =)

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
Very nice. Used pork instead of chicken and everyone seemed to like it. I had never made pot pie before, and I like the idea to make it from scratch more than buying a frozen one and putting it in the oven.

Taco Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
Worked well using the taco seasoning mix from this website. I could not find canned green chiles in my country, but I can imagine it tastes delicious!

Red Velvet Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
With all the suggested adjustments (oil, sugar, etc) it worked pretty well, though not as fluffy as what I was hoping for. Just a bit dense for my liking. The icing is totally new for me. Interesting, but I think I'll use cream cheese frosting after this (even if it's not traditional!!)

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
If I rated these last night when the muffins were warm and fresh, I would have said 4 stars. But 12 hours later, they were rubbery and flour-tasting. They were not any moister than regular milk muffins so I will not use sour cream anymore. Thanks for sharing anyway, win some and lose some.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
I cook for 20 people on a daily basis. My 18 year old assistant who didn't even know how to cut an onion two weeks ago was able to follow this recipe all by himself, and it was a big success with all.

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
Although I definately prefer the taste of classic pinto beans in tacos, this works well in our country where you can't get most Mexican ingredients, including pinto beans. Thanks for sharing the idea.

Raspberry Pain au Chocolat (Raspberry Chocolate Croissants)

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2008
Very good, will make again. Used half the pastry with the chocolate/raspberry filling, and half with feta cheese/ greek olives. Was happy with both the sweet and savory versions.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
really delicious. They even get soft again after freezing! I did not have any cloves, so used tea masala spice and the cookies were so scrumptious. Definately the best ginger cookies I've made. Easy too! Thank you so much!... A few years later: I STILL love this recipe, as is, no alterations necessary. I have found that subbing butter for margarine, part whole wheat flour, sea salt, and unrefined cane sugar yield the same excellent taste and texture while being healthier for the body. THANK YOU!!!

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2008
Very nice, especially the flavor combo. The orange was not strong enough for me, even though I already added an extra tablespoon of OJ because of the texture. So I will add orange zest when I do this again. A year later: can I say again how much I love this recipe (now that I add orange zest every time, and top it with an orange icing)? It's definitely one of my favorite finds on allrecipes, so thank you again for sharing. I've made it so many times that people associate it with me, so I just thought I would pass the credit back to where it is due. Oh, and I've used dried cranberries and white chocolate in place of the semisweet chocolate which is also delicious! The only problem is that all my British friends say this is not actually a scone. Go figure! Haha!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
Wow, this makes a LOT! Good thing they are yummy and I have a party this weekend. It's a bit bland on the pumpkin-front, but still tasty with half butterschotch and half chocolate chips. I was afraid that the dough was too thin to keep it's shape as a cookie, so I only did half as drop cookies, and half as cookie-bars in a 9x13 pan. It ends up the drop cookies did fine after all! For the last pan, I added more nutmeg, chips, and some cloves. With the extra flavor-oomph, these are five-star.

Easy Indian Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
This has a good flavor, but tastes and looks nothing like I used to eat in Western India, nor like what my Butter Chicken masala package instructs (which I bought from India). Maybe it's a regional difference. Anyway, it is good, but I prefer the other way I make it with just a couple spoons of yogurt and no cream at all, with fresh tomato puree, and a spoon of peanut butter or cashew butter to thicken it up a bit. I have enough creamy-tomato-chicken Indian recipes so I don't think I'll make this anymore. Thanks though!

Dukkah

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
My Egyptian husband didn't know what I was talking about when i told him about "dukkah" and described the recipe. After he smelled the spice mixed, he did suddenly recognize it as something he grew up sprinking over his eggs. It's pronounced "da'a" since Egyptians leave the k silent. Anyway, I personally hate black pepper and cumin so I'm not a big fan of this stuff, but it makes hubby happy.

Spinach Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
Been meaning to try this for a long time. It is good, but definately needs more spices, as others have said. I don't like tofu so added cubed potatoes istead. Also thought it looked boring and unappealing at the end of cooking, so added some fresh chopped tomatoes which helped the appearance a lot. Hubby liked it so I will make again, but not sure if I would do it out of my own choosing just because I'm not a big fan of chick peas OR spinache, haha!
