Russian Eggplant

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2014
More eggplant less onion. I would suggest 1 onion if you choose not to add extra eggplant. The 3 rating is for the overpowering onion. Need more of a eggplant presence versus onion. I used diced tomatoes for the tomato layer and added fresh tomatoes on top. I would not change this for next time. Leaving the extra tomato and reducing the onion would make this better tasting. Add dill too.

Indian Shrimp Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2014
Made it as is. I really wanted more warmth and a bit of heat. It made a sauce, which should have been thicker, that ran rather bland. Might try kicking up the spices next time. Disappointed.

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
Very nice. One of the best Russian tea cookies I have eaten. I did take the advice of the reviewer who suggested that the butter be warmer than room temp. I softened my room temp bars in the microwave for 20 sec at 50%. Did just fine. I also used disposable food prep gloves to kneed the dough before making the balls. Worked great. Next time I might use a pinch less flour to see if it makes a difference, as it was a bit dry in the middle bite. However, overall, I am delighted to have made these myself!

Ukrainian Red Borscht Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
Love this recipe. Very hearty and reheats well. I eliminated the sausage (allergic to pork) and sugar. To me, the sugar didn't really add anything. The only other sub was that I used garlic cubes, which i had on hand, versus garlic cloves. I love and fix a lot of Russian/Ukrainian/Eastern European items and this recipe is a keeper.
