Basque Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
This was indeed truly something different. I read previous reviews and decided to add a generous dose of Almond extract to the custard--without this I feel the flavor would have been bland. I would also try lemon extract but my family prefers almond. I'm not much of a baker and I was very proud of myself for the way it turned out. Other than the almond extract, I followed this step by step and it turned out great! tastes wonderful with coffee. What I like most about this recipe is that it only needs a few basic ingredients, you can whip this up without having to go to the grocery store.

Herbed Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
I've used this recipe a few times-- it's fantastic! I make it with "chicken and dumplings II" from allrecipes.com. I accidentally used 3 teaspoons instead of 3 tablespoons tonight and it still turned out great! This is a keeper.

Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
This was very good, tasted more like dessert to me (I made it intended for a side dish) but my husband liked it so much he had thirds! Per others suggestions I also used 1/2 c white sugar and 1/2 c brown sugar....I would do that again. I accidentally forgot the powdered sugar on top and it still had nice presentation, this dish is already so sweet I would make sure to very lightly dust with powdered sugar next time--it doesn't need a y help in the sweetness department! Overall, very good dish!

Candied Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
This was incredible! Per previous review I skipped the breadcrumb mixture and just floured the chicken breasts, then browned them. I also lowered the brown sugar slightly and thought it was still sweet enough. I would make this for company - it can have really nice presentation if you choose to do so! Thanks Judi Ann!!

Moist Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
I make these all the time! I love them!p @Merchant_M : you can't give these an accurate rating because you left out the chocolate chips, one of the key ingredients! Of course it wasn't chocolatey enough, you didn't add the chocolate chips!! Shame on you.

Chicken Tagine with Couscous

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2013
I couldn't eat this, my husband could. I think it's too many spices/herbs put together which produces an unpleasant taste. I really wanted to like this. I had to add about 1/4 cup of honey when it was done just so my husband could eat it, that seemed to cut down on some of the odd pepperiness. Thank god I didn't add the cayenne or curry, then the wild dogs outside probably wouldn't of eaten it. Save your time, don't make this.

Dried Cherry Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2013
I won't be making this again. The sour cherries didn't taste good with the cake...

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
Great flavor, very healthy but HOW ON EARTH did anyone fit ALL of these ingredients into what the recipe calls for....a 1 11/2 casserole dish?! I couldn't use all my veggies because there was way too much. Not sure if I will make this again.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
This soup was delicious, I think it would be a good side dish with a Steak. However, if you're making this soup as the MEAL-- double it!! This soup only made two large bowls. Definitely not enough for more than 2 or 3 people as a meal. You won't have leftovers!!

Cream Of Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2013
Delicious! I will make this again! I didn't have access to cream so I substituted 3/4 cup of milk with 1/3 cup of butter. Based on other reviews I also doubled the recipe. My husband can't handle too much spice so I halved the curry.

Ricotta Cookies III

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
10 min baking wasn't long enough, I live in N Africa and my oven usually cooks twice as fast as my oven back in the USA, I cooked these cookies for 10 minutes and they were still gooey inside. After I frosted them I decided to take a risk and put them back in the oven for a few additional minutes, glad I did...

Sambusaks (Sumboosaks) with Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
This dough was so dry my sambasks fell apart while frying. I tried using water/olive oil to help seal the edges, then I used the fork again to crimp. I'm so disappointed. I think the dough definitely needs more than 1/3 c water....

Turkish Red Lentil 'Bride' Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2014
This is the best lentil soup EVER! My spouse is middle eastern so I've had my fair share of lentil soups. This is the best! I love that it's a 1 pot meal too- no blender required. I left out the cayenne pepper because I didn't have any, I used a couple dashes of chili pepper instead. Even my fussy 16 month old baby liked it! I will be making this again! Thank you Genevia!!

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
Pretty good, not "wow" I followed this exactly as written. It was good, but not amazing. I would try another recipe before making this again. It is quick and easy though which is a plus.

French Breakfast Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
These muffins were fantastic! One of my new fav recipes from allrecipes.com!! With that said, I only got 7 recipes out of this, did anybody really get 12?! The recipe just says to fill the muffin tins with the batter, it doesn't say 1/2 full or 3/4...I did about 3/4 and got 7. Next time I will double this!

Grandma's Hash Browns

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
I love hash towns but could never get them like you do in a diner or Coney Island-- mine were always mushy/gooey. NOT ANYMORE! The magic of putting these in the drive overnight, or 6 hours in the day like I did, makes these just as good as your local diner!

Basic Microwave Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2014
I love onions and this was too overpowering with the onion flavor. I would sauté the onion first next time I make this. Other than that it was great.

Honey Mustard Chicken Bites

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2014
I loved this recipe! So easy and delicious! My only complaint is that I marinated my chicken in the dressing for over an hour and still couldn't taste the dressing which I made from scratch. I will marinade longer next time.
