Onion Tart

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Very tasty but a more work than the recipe implies. Between frying the bacon, sauteeing the onions (you will want them almost carmelized, so it takes around 30 minutes), pre-baking the shell and everything, this recipe takes a few hours. The first time I made this, I took one of the previous reviwers suggestions and cut the pie crusts into little tartlets and pressed into muffin pans. If you do this, use non-stick spray, as 1/2 of mine broke apart trying to extract them from the pan. I also used one extra egg since mine were very small, but I think you should stick to 2 small eggs or the tart won't be flat enough. (It is not supposed to be fluffy like a quiche.) And I wasn't sure how much of the mixture to put in the shell either; I'm guessing 1/2 full. Also, if you don't want your pie shell to be too moist/soft, prick the shell on the sides and bottom before baking, and brush a light egg wash on before pre-cooking it. Finally, I suggest slicing your onions very thin, and use the sweet yellow variety.

Homemade Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
These taste like a lot of chewy nothing. You need to add some milk or you won't be able to get the mix to form a ball and roll. I had a terrible time getting the dough rolled out then enough (it kept re-compacting itself). When I added to soup, they puffed up twice the size. So I tossed orzo in my chicken soup instead, and it was much better.

Primo Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
OMG, this is fabulous--just like my Sicilian step-grandpa used to make. All my life I've been looking for a recipe that lives up to his sauce--and this is it! I used Newman's organic marinara instead of the tomatoes/paste, and more red (& green) peppers. Now THIS tastes authentic!

Thai Beef Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
One of my family's all-time favorites! I pound the meat very thin prior to sauteeing. My secret ingredient is roasted rice powder. You can make it yourself in minutes and sprinkle on just before serving for a delicious crunchy texture.
