Persimmon Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Nice recipe. Often I will reduce the sugar in breads and cakes, because they're too sweet for friends and family here in Japan. This recipe is an exception. Cutting back on the sugar, if anyone else is thinking about it, may not be the best idea. I made two versions and it was definitely better with the full amount. That said, I like that it has a real bread flavor (as opposed to cake). I gave it a 4, because I think it could have used some more of the spices. It was a little bland. Next time, I think I'll add a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice as well. All in all, pretty good. Thank you for the recipe!

Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
These were really excellent cookies! I didn't have lemon extract, but it wasn't a problem to just leave it out. Nutmeg would probably be a nice touch. I will try that next time. Also I didn't have the puffiness issue some reviewers talked about. My cutouts came out just fine. As always I'm using my trusty toaster oven. 750 watts for 7 minutes if anyone else is in this situation! On top I used cinnamon sugar on some and colored sugar on others. Thanks for the recipe!

Bruschetta I

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
This a good basic bruschetta. If you're new to bruschetta, or have just started to cook, you can't really go wrong with this one. I would advise putting only one clove of garlic in at first and then adjusting as needed. One was more than enough for us, and we're garlic lovers in this house.

Salmon Deviled Eggs with Homemade Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
This was my first try at mayonnaise and it came out beautifully. Thank you for the recipe! BTW this CAN be mixed up with just a fork and a bowl if anyone is wondering...just put on youtube or something for entertainment because it takes a while! If you're patient though it will come out great.

Updated Mulled Cider

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
This was really good! It made the kitchen smell wonderful too! Not having cinnamon sticks on hand, I combined ground cinnamon from the jar with the cloves and put the mixture into a coffee filter and tied it shut (like a little boquet garni), then put it in the pot. The flavors diffused nicely with no problems! Only concern...has anyone else noticed that the recipe has a mistake(?) in the amount of cloves? Personally, I used about 20, per another reviewer's advice. Thanks for the recipe. Yum!

Green Eggs and Ham Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Yum! Thanks for the recipe! It's great as is AND... it's also good with the Oil Pie Crust from this site. Leave out the baking mix and cut way back on the milk if you choose to do it that way. Very forgiving recipe. You can play around with it a lot!

Beefy Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
Thanks! Very easy and decent recipe. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I think it's a great base for experimenting with your own favorite ingredients, but as written is a a little too bland. (Probably a fantastic recipe for small children.) Per the suggestion of another reviewer, I added chili powder and cumin and it helped the flavor tremendously. ** I think this would be a great filling for lettuce wraps. (Napa lettuce leaf (hakusai), this as filling, and maybe some Korean spicy miso paste (gochujang)...mmm...)

Summertime Sweet Pickles

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
We loved these! I'm sure it would have been great as written, but I can't get mustard seed where I'm at (at least not without some work), so I left it out. I also added some dried dill. These are actually good to go in about 5 hours if you're in a bit of a hurry. Thanks for the recipe! I'll be making these regularly!

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
The whole family (including the dog!) loved this recipe! The instructions seem strange for mashed potatoes, but it really does come out fantastic just exactly as written. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!! (cooking time for mine was closer to 40 min... but that was the only difference from the recipe)

French Breakfast Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
Nice recipe! I'm always looking for make-ahead breakfast items for the workweek. These are perfect. They're light and fluffy (stir as little as possible and they'll come out this way) and they don't crumble too much, so they're easy to transport on the go. As other reviewers have said, they NEED the cinnamon/sugar mix on the top though if you make the recipe as written. These take about 20 minutes in the toaster oven on 750W.

English Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
When I tried baking these in the pan, I came out with hockey pucks... My pan baking technique was poor perhaps? At any rate, the next morning as I was considering whether or not to toss the remainder of the dough, (life happened as it sometimes does and the remaining dough was left under the towel on the table...yes, yes bacteria I know...but nobody but me is eating them, so eh, whatever)...as I was about to toss the dough, I stuck a couple of the rounds into the toaster oven...and they puffed up and were delicious! Go figure... VERY forgiving recipe apparently. :) The flavor was good, but not "wow" therefore 4 stars. These have gotten such great reviews from others...I will try them again soon and see if they come out better.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
This was really yummy!! I felt like I was in my granny's kitchen again as a little girl. Thanks for the recipe! I made mine in a 9" round pan in the toaster oven. If you go that route, use the full amount of time for the peaches and sugar mix and then 1/2 the time (15 minutes or less) turning the pan one time halfway through after the topping is added. The only ingredient change I made was to reduce the amount of butter. 4Tbsp. was more than enough. (Thanks too to the reviewer who added the note about how to get the peels off nicely, that's a great trick.) :)

Avocado and Tuna Tapas

Reviewed: May 8, 2009
This is sooooo good! My boyfriend and I made these to have with dinner, but ended up eating them in the kitchen before the meal because after we took a taste we couldn't put them down! Thanks for posting!

Pumpkin Spiced Latte

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2012
Yay! Zippy I love you for putting up this recipe! Starbucks doesn't have Pumpkin Spice Latte in Japan...I (and I think many, many of the foreign people here!) have been really, really wanting one with the weather getting cooler. This recipe isn't exactly like the Starbucks one, but truth be told, I like it better. I used a kilimanjaro coffee and skipped the whipped topping...the milk was frothy enough that it wasn't necessary. Sprinkled some extra sugar on top with the pumpkin pie spice and it was perfect.

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
I made this almost exactly as written. (with the updates) The only difference being that I had lime juice on hand, but no lemons and substituted that in. Personally I'm not a huge garlic fan, so I will cut back to the original 1 clove when I make this again, but that's just preference. Great recipe!

Chole Saag

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
This is a really nice everyday dish. It can be thrown together surprisingly quickly...and is wonderful vegetarian comfort food if you sub. out the chicken broth for veggie broth! Planned to give this one 4 stars, but after letting it rest for a while in the pot, it got even better, so it got a promotion! I made it exactly as the recipe states at first, but the flavor wasn't quite strong enough for my tastes, so added another generous amount of curry powder and it was perfect!

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
This was so easy!! In about 5 minutes I had perfect frosting! Note: I added the butter last...and to be honest, I think you could cut back quite a bit on the amount and still have it come out well. Also, I used another reviewer's tip to substitute plain milk for the evaporated milk. Worked just fine. Thanks!

Oil Pie Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Thank you!! This was light, flaky, and had a nice flavor. It will be my go-to for savory pie crusts from now on. I followed the advice of other reviewers and rolled the crust out between two sheets of plastic wrap instead of flouring the table like usual and tried to handle it as little as possible. No problems at all. It came out like a dream. :)

Green Bean Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
This was a big hit at Thanksgiving this year! Thanks for the recipe! I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars because to me, it would have been better without the sugar, but still a good recipe.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Simple and delicious! Thanks for the recipe. When I made it, I cut the recipe in half, poured the batter into a 9in round pan and put it in the toaster oven on 1000W for 15 minutes... then brought the temperature down to 500W and cooked for another 10 minutes. It came out perfect. So good!
