Butter Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2003
I just wanted to make simple cookies that didn't require any ingredients that I didn't have in my house everyday. These were WONDERFUL, I'm extremely pleased.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2004
I think these are the best cookies I've ever made. I coated them with a simple icing made from confectioner's sugar dissolved in milk with a little vanilla. My boyfriend didn't want me to share them.

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2004
This is a great basic pesto recipe- I use pine nuts and possibly any other nuts I have around (pecans). I also add parmesan cheese as I'm a big cheese fan. You can substitute water for some of the oil if you'd like a lower-fat version. Very versatile recipe!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2004
Used dried cranberries instead of raisins... cookies tasted fabulous right out of oven but were a bit hard and disappointing the next day.

Krusczyki

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2004
I was excited by this recipe, but unfortunately it was very bland and I had a really hard time cooking the dough all the way through in the oil. Also, make sure in the first step where it says 'Combine all ingredients', do not include the shortening! This was tricky. Also, maybe I am inept, but I couldn't make anything that looked like a 'bow' from the strips that I cut. All-around awkward.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2005
This was excellent, but doesn't taste like the tikka masala I get at my favorite Indian restaurant. Not too surprising since it doesn't include many Indian spices (garam masala in particular). It's really super for what it is, though, esp if you don't have special Indian spices on hand.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
You only need about half of the dressing (unless you like oil). Much better after sitting overnight in the refrigerator- noodles had a chance to soak up the dressing.

Zucchini Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
I had high hopes for this one but I couldn't eat it without cringing. Zucchini do not bake the way apples do- you just wind up with a pie with stringy vegetables inside. I don't think the zucchini flavor is masked sufficiently by the spices. This one didn't fool me.

Arancini

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2005
The obscenities flew out of my mouth while making these balls, but boy did they fly into the mouths of my dinner guests! This dish is for a patient chef- allow 3-4 hours to make these. However, these are exceptional. Truly restaurant-quality. I eliminated the peas and didn't miss them (this probably makes it easier to shape the balls). Don't be concerned about the overwhelming flavor of the parmesan-risotto mixture, it's just right once the balls are battered and cooked. The oil I used to cook the balls didn't cover them, so I fried them for about 3-4 minutes on one side and then flipped. The less handling, the better. And they reheat beautifully in the oven to boot!

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2005
This is a really tasty recipe. Cauliflower is a good substitute for the potatoes, and really cuts the cooking time. Added zucchini for some green. Thanks!

Swedish Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
These are great cookies that I've been making for years. I think the recipe should say 'roll to 1/8th of an inch in thickness' as opposed to 1/2 (which would give you really thick cookies). Sometimes the dough is too dry to roll easily- feel free to add as much cream as necessary to get a dough of good rolling consistency- otherwise, the cookies will have a tough texture. Also, MAKE SURE to prick the cookies! One time I didn't, and they blew up like balloons.

Cocoa Rum Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
I made these for a Christmas party... either people loved them or hated them. I personally thought they were too strong.

Raisin Buttermilk Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2007
Easy to make and tasty. I didn't have nuts, but the topping was fine without it. I also substituted dried cranberries for the raisins.

Potato Latkes I

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2007
I added grated carrots and some parsley for some added color. Reviews had suggested using matzo meal in place of flour, I didn't have any so I though I'd use 2 Tbsp. falafel mix I had on hand (hey, it's Middle Eastern, right?)... actually turned out super tasty. Loved them.

Honeyed Chicken

Reviewed: May 1, 2007
Sounds strange, but it's really good. Great over rice if you make some extra sauce. I cooked the chicken for 20-25 minutes at 450F.

Italian Buttercream

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
This was alright. The only change I made was to use only 1/2 c. of shortening. This very well may taste like a proper buttercream, but I found it pretty tasteless. I don't like the overly sweetened icings, but this needs more sugar.

White Cake Frosting I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
I like my icing only moderately sweet, not super sweet. Because of this, I only use 2.5-3 c. of confectioner's sugar; alternatively, you can use the recommended amount of sugar and keep adding shortening until the icing is palatable. Better than buttercream in a fraction of the time!

Carrot Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
I liked them; my husband did not. They become more 'burger-like' as leftovers because they have the chance to firm up in the refrigerator. Because of this, I recommend making them ahead of time and then reheating gently.

Mediterranean Barley Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
Diced green pepper and red onion made great additions to this recipe. Better after 1 day once the flavors meld.
