French Crepes

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Yummy! I added a little more sugar as we like our crepes really sweet. The consistancy of the batter was just right!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
This is a great recipe base. For my taste though, it is a bit bland. To zip things up, I added cayene pepper, cracked black pepper, and 3 cloves of garlic. Also, instead of pureeing the whole soup, I picked out most of the florettes and pureed what was left- the onions and garlic. The end result is both tasty and appealing to the eye.

Calamari Steaks Parmigiano

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
I'm only giving 2 stars because I may have done something wrong. I don't know what but maybe it was me. The breading just dissipated into the oil. It was a mess. Good thing calamari steaks are so cheap. This was so ugly it never even made it to the table.

Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
This is a great base recipe. If you have never made tzatziki, this is a good start. The garlic may be a bit much for some, but for me and my family- we love it! My suggestion- spend a little more and get the authentic style Greek yougart. Most other kinds of yougart will produce a really watery tzatziki. If you can't find Greek yougart, you can fake it by straining it. Take 2 or 3 paper towels and tape it or rubber band it securely to a container. The perfect container would be a recycled 16oz yougart tub- then you have a lid too. Scoop the yougart on the paper towel, cover and place in the fridge. If you can, leave it overnight. You will be surprised at the water that is rendered. Then just follow the recipe.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
I made this last night for a party and it was a big hit. I gave it 4 stars because, as written, it would have been too mild for the crowd I run with. Here are the modifications I made. After reading that this dish can come out runny, I cut back on the salsa to about 3/4 of what was called for. Also, I used roma tomatoes- I cut out the seeds and only used the flesh. For the sour cream and cream cheese mix, I added cayene pepper and a splash of lemon juice for a little extra zip. I also used diced fresh jalepenos as we Texans like the heat! I too omitted the letuce for fear that if it were sitting out for too long, it would wilt. I will definately be making this again!

Simple Garlic and Basil Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
This is a great recipe just thought there was a bit too much oil. I cut back on oil and only used pinenuts- came out great.

Vanilla Crepes

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
I made these for a dinner party I had last weekend- huge hit! I made the crepe batter before hand and after dinner I made a show of making the crepes. I then served them with my guests' choice of shaved chocoalte, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, powdered sugar, or cherries- which I served FLAMBE! SO MUCH FUN! And everyone commented on the vanilla aroma! This one is a keeper. Just a note though- when making crepes you must have the right pan and spatula. The pan must be very wide and thin and the spatula must be as wide as you can find it.

Mountain Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
They came out well but I did make some adjustments. I upped the flour to 3/4 a cup and only used 1 cup of walnuts. 2 cups of walnuts would have been like having a little cookie with my nuts.

Chicken Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2007
I too have NO idea what browning sauce is BUT... I tried this one with 1/2 the flour for dredging and smoked paprika, just for the fun of it. What came out was great. I will definately add this to my menu.

Unbelievable Spinach Calzones

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
I used pie dough but it worked out well. I also used only shredded chicken, spinach, riccota, and a touch of evo, as traditional calzones do not have sauce inside. I will try again but next time with a different dough.

Navajo Fry Bread II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
This recipe cannot work as written- flat out! I'm so glad I read the reviews before trying this one. It comes out WAAAAY too wet, would be very bland, and the salt is too much. After making several modifications it came out great. I upped the flour, decreased the salt, added garlic and thyme, and for the milk, I was short on milk so I used 1/2 the portion of milk and the other 1/2 was vanilla yougurt. My husband loved it (he ate 3 pieces alone) and my 3 year old also enjoyed it.

Chicken Curry I

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2006
The best curry I ever made. I did make a few changes though. I ommited the cayenne because I used hot curry powder and I also added a table spoon of cumin and a 1/2 c of plain yogurt. I also, took the tip from another reviewer and thickened it up with corn starch. I then put this in the oven and cooked at 200F for 3 hours. It came out so tender and flavorful. This is my new curry recipe from here on out!

St. Louis Toasted Ravioli

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2004
Be sure that the ravioli is good and frozen when making this dish. I did as another reviewer did and added ground garlic and a bit of creole seasoning. Also, better the quality the ravioli is the better these come out.

Championship Chocolate Chip Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2003
These taste great but they made a mess of my pan. They were very difficult to get out and didn't look so great when I did get them out. My boyfriend loves them regardless.

Creole Cornbread Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2003
This was a huge hit at Thanksgiving. Most of my guests had never had stuffing- not typical in Holland, and they loved it. I cheated a bit though- I used Jiffy mix as my base. Sorry but who has time at Thanksgiving to make everything completely from scratch?

Emily's Famous Marshmallows

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2003
This was a simple but time consuming recipe. Marshmallows are almost impossible to find in Holland so I didn't have a choice but to make them. It really impressed my American friends and taste just like the real thing. Next time I will have to work on the presentation though.
