Tabbouleh III

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
I made this salad for a party and got several compliments for it. I used couscous (the large-grained Israeli type from Trader Joe's) instead of bulgur because I couldn't find bulgur. I prepared the couscous according to the directions on the package and didn't have any problems with it being too wet like some people did with bulgur. I did remove the seeds from both the tomatoes and the cucumbers, though, so that probably helped, too. I only used 1/2 cup of olive oil and I believe the salad would have still been good had I used even less. I agree with some of the other reviewers that the salad was a little bland at first. I ended up using more salt, parsley, and mint than the recipe called for, and I also added black pepper and a tiny bit of jalapeno - not enough to make it spicy but just enough to add some flavor. With these changes, I was really happy with the salad. Goes great with pita bread.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
I have been making these brownies for years and they're my go-to recipe every time. They're super quick and everyone seems to love them. The only thing I have changed is that I don't make the frosting, and instead I put some chopped chocolate in the dough before baking. I like milk chocolate such as Cadbury, but have used different types in the past.
