I followed the recipe as is and it had great flavor. Serve on a bed of rice and a side salad for a great quick meal.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
This was an excellent bread. I toasted the pecans sprinkled with cinnamon for a few minutes to bring out their flavor and had to cook it an hour before it was done. I liked the reviewer who said they used applesauce to cut the oil down. I would have done the same, but was out of applesauce.

Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2005
This was very good. I prefer to add chopped cukecumbers to the sauce and mix for a few pulses in the food processor and serve with Gyros

Gyros Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2005
Thespices and combination of lamb and beef made these taste almost like our Greek Community Tarpon Spring's finest. Making them thin is also good advice. I used a Tzatziki sauce found at this site too and served Roditis dry rose (also Greek). It was great! Thanks for saving me a trip to Tarpon Springs.

Tiramisu Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2005
This is a fabulous recipe. I followed the advice of others and added more coffee liquor to the recipe and brushed the crust with coffee liquor before adding the cheese cake mixture. Also I baked it in a hot water bath from the advice section of this website cooked for 45 minutes at 350 and turned off the oven and left door ajar for about an hour before removing. It looks and tastes perfect. By the way, this is the first time I've made cheesecake! I had to share with the neighbors!

The Best Chicken Salad Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2004
I used mayo because I'm not a fan of miracle whip and added sour cream and toasted almonds. Very delicious

Christmas Turtle Candies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2003
These turned out great. I toasted the pecans for about 5 minutes before starting, and used a 300 degree oven as someone suggested. The caramel melted fine. I used the microwave to melt the chocolate 3 minutes at 40% power. Sinfully easy. The hardest part is unwrapping the candies.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2003
These are great. I noticed several reviews said too many pistacios and I looked at the amount and agreed. I think it was a typo with 2 ones so it became 1 1/2 cups instead of what I used... just a 1/2 cup. Also, when I recooked them 8-10 minutes after slicing I thought they still too soft so I left them in the oven about 10 more minutes. Perfect. I'll make it again, and will double the recipe for gift giving. Looks festive for Christmas.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2003
Excellent taste and they make a pleasing presentation with the colorful filling. I did have trouble making the rolls tight and uniform at first, but will practice more. I had one left over and saved it in waxed paper overnight in the fridge. It was even better. Not mushy at all.

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2003
These are tasty and a nice appetiser for a crowd. Next time I will use fresh lump crab not canned crab. I think that would improve the texture.

Sausage Flowers

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2003
THis was a little disappointing. Even with the sausage it was little bland, and the wonton wrappers were a little soggy. I liked the idea, though, and they looked pretty. I will try it again sometime, but will use ground beef and kick it up with more of a queso cheese sauce. Maybe precook the wontons a little to crisp them up a bit.

Pasta With Tuna Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2003
This was really simple and tasty! I would make it for company. I used fresh tomatoes because I had some that needed using, but otherwise followed the recipe. I have also made it using a can of rotel for the tomatoes. That kicks it up. A keeper.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2003
This got lots of positive comments at Christmas time get togethers. I like a darker chocolate fudge, so I used bittersweet (not unsweetened) chocolate, and Baker's German Sweet Chocolate. Also, if you lightly toast the nuts (pecans in my case) before adding to the mix,it gives them a richer nuttier flavor.

Cioppino

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2003
I hesitated between 4 - 5 stars because this is a really inspired recipe, but I did have a couple of suggestions. I agree with other reviewers that additional fish stock would give it more depth of flavor and I too blanched at all the butter. So used used olive oil, and just a couple tablespoons of butter. Also, if you are using fresh mussels and clams (as I did), they need to go in about 10 minutes ahead of the other fish, because the shrimp, scallops, fish, and crab will cook in about 5 minutes. I'd wait until the clams and mussels start to open before adding the rest. I also added a about a 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes for a little more zest. I'll definitely make this again.

Baked Fried Eggplant

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2002
This is a great replacement for oily fried eggplant. I have tried baking them before, but they weren't nearly as crispy and tasty. I did substitute reduced fat sour cream and increased the oven temp to 350. Definitely a keeper!
