Turkey Mercedes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I've made this turkey almost every Thanksgiving since I heard about it a few years ago. The only thing I change is to use just two heads of garlic and only stuff one head in the holes. I tried it with three the first time, and although I enjoyed the roasted garlic flavor, some of my guests didn't. For those who don't care for the citrusy gravy it produces, you can do what I do and make a plain turkey gravy to serve on the side using the reserved neck and giblets.

Armenian Lentils

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
I had my doubts about this dish up until the final taste test before serving it, but the lemon and scallions really work wonders and complete the dish nicely. I added a carrot cooked with the onions and put some chicken bouillon cubes in the water instead of adding salt. And instead of plain yogurt, I whipped up a garlic-mint-cucumber yogurt sauce (like tzatziki)

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
I was skeptical of this method, but it really works. Will definitely make again, although with less sugar--I didn't even use a full half cup and it was a bit sweet for me.

African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
This recipe was not bad, and definitely inspired me. However, with the spices as listed, it's too bland for my taste. I added more of everything, plus a little ginger. I also added a carrot and a can of chopped tomatoes, and substituted vegetable broth for the water, adding a little extra as per reader recommendations. I used standard, processed PB since I can't get the natural variety. It still seemed to lack something, though. I think a cilantro garnish would make a big difference, but I didn't have any. I'll see how it tastes after it's sat for a while.
