Cod Fish Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
this recipe was good. very good, but it needed some small changes. when I made this, it was way too soft and sticky to form into patties, so I added some bread crumbs. A few small changes that were more on a personal basis were substituting cilantro for parsley, adding salt and ground red pepper, and using less oil to fry in. I also make a spicy chipotle mayo sauce that went great with these cakes, gave them just the right amount of kick!

Chicken and Lentils

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
The flavor of this recipe was pretty good, but i think that the tomato sauce wasnt really necessary. I tasted the mixture before the tomato sauce was added, and it was delicious as-is. Also, i had to cook my lentils for over an hour, so if i do make this one again, i will be soaking the lentils first and i will definitely omit the tomato sauce

Crisp Little Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
quick, simple, and tasty. I made a few changes, simply for personal taste... I used corn flakes instead of crisp rice, for crunch. Also about 1/2 way thru cooking, i noticed they were turning out to be really fluffy soft cookies. I prefer more crunchy (crunchy, not burnt), so I gave them a little press with a spoon and a little sprinkle of raw sugar on top. turned out fantastic!

Lebanese Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
it was good. i love lemon-flavored dishes. i didn't cut the lemon at all. i think next time i will add some sliced onion for a little extra flavor, though.

Simple Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
this was an amazing recipe! the only changes I made were to, after browning meat, add to crock pot and cook on high for five hours (after which, the meat literally fell off the bones! yum!) and I quadrupled the recipe amount... and had just enough for 4 people! I used some of the liquid to make a great gravy and the remaining liquid i used the next day for a french onion soup. Just add croutons and some swiss and provolone and broil till browned. All in all, a great tasting and No-waste meal, just be sure to adjust for how many people will be eating, and it's perfect.

Strawberry Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I followed the recipe exactly as stated, only adding about a 1/4 cup of chocolate syrup to the mix.. came out amazing. crispy on top, soft and moist underneath with bits of sweet strawberry. As a side note, i had to cook mine for close to 43 mins to get it to the right consistency using an 8x8 square glass pan

Orangey Turkey Legs

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
As I didn't have any mandarin oranges on hand, i used the OJ and marmalade substitute, as others recommended. As for the reviews that claim it was "bland", these are also the ones that left out the oil!! of course it was bland!! as with ANY marinade, it MUST have some form of fat... the fat is what carries the FLAVOR! you mustn't change a recipe, then claim the recipe is no good. Mine came out spectacularly.
