Basic Fondue

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
Yum! tastes just like the melting pot's! i half the recipe so it will all fir in my fondue pot. i also substitute a cup of beer for the milk. I serve it with apples and panera sourdough bread. it is also good with broccoli and carrots. I also usually add 2 small cloves of garlic, but i love garlic.

Amaretto Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
i combine this recipe with the almond sauce chicken breast recipe also found on this site. i follow the first three steps of the almond chicken recipe. i dredge the chicken in an egg and almond mixture. then i saute in butter over the stove top. then i start at step three on this recipe and put the sauce over the chicken and heat in the oven. i serve it with linguine. not the most healthy, but very yummy and tasty.

Chocolate Bar Fondue

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
i have made this many times in order to mimic the melting pot's fondue. it always turns out fantastic. i substitute a liquor such as amaretto for the instant coffee. it goes well with basic fondue recipe room this site (i half the recipe and subtitute beer for the milk). i also always make the cream cheese pound cake I recipe from the site to dip in the chocolate fondue. mm, heaven!

Baklava

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
Yum! i have used walnuts, or pecans (much more expensive) the last time i made it i put a zest of a whole orange in the honey sauce and used all pecans. my whole family loved it. it is easy, but time consuming. the hardest part is cutting it. it always hurts my wrist. it's worth the pain though!

Rosemary Corn Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
i made this soup as the first course of a birthday dinner for a friend. after i saw on another webpage the exact same recipe and i was by bon appetit, i decided on this recipe. the only difference in recipes was this one calles for 2 garlic cloves and fresh herbs. i used the fresh herbs, but roasted a whole garlic head and added that in. i also used a homemade vegetarian stock since my friend is a vegetarian and it is low in sodium but tasty. this soup was a big hit, and after making to-go bowls, there wasn't any left. i made it again for my grandma and family during the holidays and again they loved it. also i used an immersion blender rather than blending it. it was a good soup. i prefer it with crackers than a crusty bread. if you like corn (and who doesn't), this soup will be a hit.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2007
these turned out wonderful. first, i combined the wet ingredients in one bowl and the dry in another and slowly added the dry to the wet. i also followed the advice of others and rolled them into small balls, and flattened them on the cookie sheet. the minimum baking time was perfect. i only got 2 dozen cookies instead of 3 dozen, but i guess i just made mine larger. these came out perfect!

Tofu and Veggies in Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2007
this was pretty yummy! changes i made: i used rice vinegar, i omitted the mushrooms and added a sweet onion, i used pure peanutbutter (no salt or sugar added), i added the juice of a lime, i added 1 tbsp of ginger, i sauteed the tofu in the oil first until browned then added the veggies, i added 1/2 cup of crushed peanuts at the end, i served this with white rice and added some salt, next time i would add some fresh cilantro. since my peanutbutter didnt have any sugar in it, i added the full amount of molasses and it was not too sweet. Thanks for this scrumptious and easy recipe!

Caramel Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2007
These were sooo yummy! maybe next time i wont add soo much caramel. i substituted pecans for walnuts. i did not add any pecans to the brownie batter, just in the middle with the caramel. thank you! i am glad i found a from scratch recipe and not one using cake mix!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
These are just what i was craving. i didn't add the bacon (i don't like bacon), and i added oregano to the mixture. the oregano complimented the cheese, butter, and sour cream well. i also added some grated parm cheese on top to help brown. I prefer these to the ones at Fresh Market, they just need a little preparation time. i did have to bake them 30-45 minutes longer initally so they would be soft enough to scoop the flesh out.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
this is a delicious and authentic recipe. i also added cumin (1 tbsp i think) and a whole head of roasted garlic instead of the fresh garlic. i used extra olive oil and water to thin it down. lemon juice, tahini, roasted garlic, and cumin make the best flavor combination!

Eggplant Snack Sticks

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
these turned out really well. i love the wheat germ, it tastes just like bread crumbs! i had a lot of eggwhites laying around so i used that instead of egg substitute. a great afternoon snack!

Grandma's Hash Browns

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
mmm, after eating these fresh hashbrowns, i rarely go back to the frozen kind. i esp like to add 1/2 tsp tumeric, 1/2 tsp coriander, and 1/4 tsp cayenne to sauteed onions and garlic, and then add the grated potatoes. it is scrumptious!

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
This was soo good. i love apricots. they really added a nice sweet flavor to the lentils! to make it vegetarian, i used homemade veggie stock instead of chicken. these with veggie samosas and a selection of chutneys makes a great dinner!
