Mexican Steak Torta

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
These were delicious. I was skeptical about frying a roll with mayo on it and I nearly skipped that step but I am glad I didn't...the warm toasted creaminess = yum! I have since toasted bread/mayo like this for other sandwiches too. We'll have these again and again.

Spicy Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
I would have given this 3 stars; my Indian husband would have given it 5. Be careful adding salt...some tomato sauces have salt added already. I used half the sugar and chili powder (I buy cp from the Indian grocery..it is hotter) called for in the recipe. I blended the soup with a hand blender and added leftover cooked basmati rice and chopped cilantro. Next time I think I'll leave out the cream and serve it with a dollup of yogurt and sprinkle with chopped cilantro in the style of our fav mulligatawny recipe. I might also try this with coconut milk instead of cream. Even with half the chili powder, my kids thought it was too spicy, but again my Indian husband loved it. We'll make it again with adjustments.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
original recipe is great...second time I made the following changes....replaced tom. sauce with 2 large cans crushed tomatoes and added 2 entire pkgs chili seasoning mix. Chili is so forgiving and personal...I think the key to this recipe is the salsa. I love it, this is my new go to recipe.

Chutney Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
Delicious! I used Miracle Whip instead of Mayo to cut down on fat/cal. I didn't add the chutney, instead I served it with different chutneys on the side and let everyone add their fav chutney. My favorite chutney for this was mint chutney. I also tried it with Spicy Tomato Chutney from this site. That was good. This recipe is also good without any chutney at all.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
yum! I used crumbled club crackers instead of bread crumbs. The adults loved it but not the kids.

Lumpia (Shanghai version)

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
Great! Very easy to make. I've made them twice. The first time I followed the recipe and loved them. Second time I used ground chicken instead of pork/beef and less salt. Even thought I was using low sodium soy sauce I still thought the original recipe is too salty. I loved it with ground chicken and even added the extra meat filling to Pancit...yum! My local Asian market carries frozen Lumpia wrappers so I used those instead of egg roll wrappers....I am not sure if there is a flavor difference between the two. Another variation...I did brown my ground meat before adding the other ingredients.

Masala Chai Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
This brownie recipe is great! The Chai flavor is as promised, subtle. I love the coconut too. My kids loved it but my Chai loving South Indian husband hated it. Still I give it 5 stars :)

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
Great! Too much sugar however. 1 cup of sugar was plenty! Second time around I used 1/2 tsp cardamom...personal preference.

Moroccan Potato Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
Very flavorful. We love spicy food but were happy with the recipe without the cayenne. In addition to the kidney beans and potato, I added a can of garbanzo beans and some steamed cauliflower & skipped the potato flakes b/c I didn't have any. It was a good recipe, I'll make it again with modifications.

Rum Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
yummy! I changed the glaze recipe a bit....1/2 stick of butter and only 1/4 cup rum. Poured it down the size of the cake pan while the case was still in it....after about an hour flip it on to a serving dish.

Runzas (Bierocks)

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
Loved the idea of these....meat and cheese in a neat little package. This recipe is pretty bland for my taste but it's easy to customize. Maybe next time I'll try pepper jack cheese or adding peppers to the mixture. I look forward to making them again.

Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
I wanted to like them but to me they were bland tasted like a hot dog wrapped in bacon, the brown sugar didn't do much for it - not worth the fat and calories!

Curried Popcorn

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
Fantastic! I used 1/4tsp chili powder instead of hot sauce. Everyone gobbled it up. I will make this on a regular basis. We call it Masala Popcorn.

Spicy Hot Chicken Legs

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
These were good. After baking I served them with the leftover sauce from the slow cooker and ranch dressing on the side. I was able to get 12 legs into my slow cooker by putting them in vertically - meaty side down. I'll make this again.

Chip Chicken Lollipops

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
Not that great. I expected crunchy but it really wasn't. Not much flavor from the chip came through; I used Lays BBQ. It's so easy to make I'll probably give it another try with a different chip, maybe Jay's HOT BBQ. Here's a tip - squeeze the chips on to the chicken it helps more chips stick to the chicken and that means more chip flavor.

Corn Dog Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
This was not a hit with my kids. I used Ballpark turkey dogs and I think they expanded too much...then later contracted leaving large gaps in the muffins. Maybe cheaper hot dogs cut up into smaller pieces would have worked better. If I were to ever make this again, in addition to the changes mentioned above, I would add honey to the batter.

Buffalo Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
I was surprised that the cheese melted smoothly. I did use less than called for. I boiled frozen chicken breasts and used that broth instead of water in the soup. Next time I will add the bouillon last after a taste test. I also think I might like it better if I blended everything before adding the chicken.

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
great dough! probably the first time ever that every one ate up all of the crusty outer pieces first! I proofed the yeast with the warm water and a couple pinches of sugar before adding - and I did let it rise a bit on top of the stove while the oven was warming.
