Recipe Reviews 5 reviews
I was looking for an easy recipe to use up the phyllo dough in my freezer, and this caught my eye. I had never made baklava before and was very wary, but it turned out amazingly! Since my little brother is allergic to walnuts, I used pistachios and pecans, and I added some orange zest to the honey mixture. We were all blown away by the result. Really simple to make, and fancy enough to serve anywhere. This one is definitely going in my recipe box!

Chocolate Cakes with Liquid Centers
This was an incredible recipe! I had no bittersweet chocolate, so I used two squares of unsweetened and two of semisweet, and the result was heavenly. Also, I followed the other suggestions and cooked it for 11 minutes, which resulted in a wonderful contrast between moist, cakey outside and gooey chocolate center. Very easy, very quick, and an amazing presentation. This is definitely going to become a staple dessert recipe!

Tofu and Noodle Coconut-Curry Soup
This recipe was amazing, and I don't say that lightly. However, I used only 2 tsp. each coriander and cumin, and 2 tsp. turmeric and ginger. I also cut the curry powder down a little, though not by much. The only other change I made was using 6 oz. coconut milk instead of evaporated milk and coconut extract. My family loved this, and I'll definitely be making it again. Tastes even better served with a pot of coconut rice!
