Chickpea Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2003
Very good "outline". Must cut vinegar 'to taste' OR substitute fresh lemon or lime juice. MUST add minced onion, garlic and parsley. YUM!

Goat Cheese and Tomato Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2003
Nice pie, Jenn! IMHO, however, sub FRESH basil for Italian seasoning and FRESH garlic and sea/kosher salt for garlic salt. Maybe cut back on olive oil by half (tough call, I love EVOO).

Artichokes

Reviewed: May 9, 2003
Pretty good. Like most other reviewers I needed considerably more water and fresh lemon juice (throw in the peel too) is quite good. BUT DON'T CUT OFF THE STEM, IT'S JUST THE END OF THE HEART!!! Just trim of the end (like you would cut flowers before placing in a vase). It also gives you a way to test for doneness. Pierce the stem with a knife,if it goes through easily, it's done. ALSO: try fresh lemon juice with salt, fresh ground pepper, fresh garlic and slowly beat in Extra Virgin Olive Oil for dipping. Ligh and velvety.

Tapenade

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
Great stuff. Pretty close to an imported French one my Mom used to buy. So many uses. Great on ham, poultry (even some firm oily fish) or just cheese (cheve?) sandwiches.Makes a great pasta sauce with parmesan, even a bit of cream. One drawback; my wife doesn't leave much for me! Also try some red pepper flakes and a good grade of fresh cracked pepper with it

Chicago-Style Hot Dog

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
Good dogs! Can't find poppy seed buns here in Central CA. Use French bagget type breads cut to size. They're better suited to standing up to all the "stuff". Not much on sweet relish. Peppers in question... I dunno. We use pepperonccini peppers. Also some kind of good cheese and maybe... chili!!!

Bulgur Pilaf with Lamb

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
Anlarm and JennPB. Actually, Anlarm, the broth is should be about in the middle. I like the raito of broth to bulgur at 2:1. It shouldn't be tender or mushy but firm and chewy. More so than say converted rice. BUT if you like it... GREAT! and Jenn, really, it needs the butter if not to brown the meat to give it that wonder full carmelization full of flavor and appearence then the butter flavor for the bulger (bughlur in Armenian). Again, however, if you like it that way... GREAT! It might be said now that bulgur is high in protien and bran and soooo yummo. My non-Armenian wife and Asian decent buddy live for this when I make it (my family recipe coming soon so look for it. Authentic and easily made in a rice cooker). Geddamame, I feel bad for you. This stuff is great no matter how you throw the dice. Tabbulli is GREAT! Good stuffing for roasted chicken with herbs, shallots, garlic etc.

Corned Beef Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
RE: CalliCo's review; you may well be right about the extra water leeching out the salt but a better way to do it would be to soak (changing every couple of hours) in water overnight in the fridge. To much water will still put you into the boiling catagory. I had a recipe for "roasted" corned beef but lost it. We've improvised and indeed, it is a bit salty. Soaking helps a lot. Aside from that this is a superior method. Esentially braising. I finish up with open roasting and/or broiling to carmelize the surface. Much more appealling than boiled.

Skinny Fries

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
Yeah, you must use olive oil. I started making these sometime back to cut down on "bad" fats. Cheap, fast and easy side too! I was trying to clone the garlic fries at Raider games. Try fresh finely minced garlic and finely minced fresh rosemary, S & P, paprika... whatever turns your crank. Even a topping of parmesan cheese.

Movie Star Popcorn

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
Great! Olive oil works well too and you don't really need the butter IF you use a high quality extra virgin olive oil.

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
MIKE FROM PA is spot on! I've also done this for some years. First learned of it from Alton Brown of "Good Eats"/ Food Network fame. My kids love it and really with a high grade ( doesn't mean expensive) EVOO, don't add butter. The EVOO is at least as good as butter and you won't miss it. Plus like MIKE says, it's good oil. I won't even buy theater popcorn anymore. Why settle for packaging materials when you can have a real treat. Yumm-O!

Gravy Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
Good quick recipe and loved by just about anyone. I too add; 'shrooms, onion, garlic, fresh cracked pepper, white wine or beer and... FRESH SAGE! My Mom actually did it from scratch but we don't have the time a 1960s mom did. Try searing off on a gas grill.

Basic Buttermilk Corn Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
This makes a great corn BREAD. If Marie Calendar's is waaaay to sweet this is the one for you. Even if you don't top with honey, jam, preserves, jelly or syrup it's quite good. This is the only one I've come across that doesn't doesn't have sugar and flour.

Armenian Lentils

Reviewed: May 28, 2011

Bamieh (Middle Eastern Okra Stew)

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
I am of Armenian desent and this is very similar to the way "We" make it. Even the name is similar. We don't use the spice that the Arabs do or in much less concentration. Great with rice pilaf and lots of bread and a veggie/pickle platter. Yumm-O!

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
I'd seriously consider adding sauted onion and garlic and you can also substitute cheap pork meat. Otherwise, reads Yumm-O!

Eggplant and Pepper Parmesan Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
Great sandwich and I LOVE meat. You won't miss it with this one, however. I like using yellow peppers for color and add; slab of good tart/sweet tomatoe, some grilled onion and lettuce or chard.Also chiabatta buns are a good bread sub. Yumm-O!

Grilled Lemon Yogurt Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
Outstanding. Greeks and Indians famous for using natural live yogurt for moisture and tenderization. Good flavors though I'd add onion. Sidebar: My Mother would use yogurt instead of buttermilk (We made our own yogurt) sometimes to marinate her chicken for frying Southern (OK, Southern Armenian) style. Worked like a charm. Another great one, Chef!

Honey Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
My Kids are too young/wild to use honey on top of buttered hot biscuits (LOL!!!) so I make honey butter. This is a really good mix. OHIOMOM1 has a good idea with beating it to make it fluffy. A little goes a long way. Try it on waffles with chopped walnuts or pecans or almonds. Kaye Lynn is spot on... kosher or sea salt will balance flavor but must use unsalted butter.
