Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
I made this last week for a co-worker's birthday and everyone was fighting over the last piece! It was so moist and delicious. I followed the instructions exacly, but needed to reduce the baking time to 45 minutes. I topped the cake with the Satiny Chocolate Glaze (from this site), chopped walnuts, and more chocolate chips. I'm making another one tonight! Thank you for the recipe!

Armenian Lentils

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
This recipe just proves that the simplest of ingredients can produce wonderful results. Absolutely delicious! I didn’t know I liked lentils so much! I served this as a side dish to the “Lahmahjoon (Armenian Pizza)” recipe. I had some lamb bones left from that recipe, which I used to make a stock to substitute for the water in this recipe. I also added a little bit of cucumber and mint to the yogurt sauce, just because I had them on hand. It was delicious. The ingredients list calls for a lemon wedge, but the directions indicate lime. Either would be delicious, but we used lime. My kids gobbled this up and asked for more. I can’t wait to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Thank you so much for a recipe we will make over and over!

Lahmahjoon (Armenian Pizza)

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
I planned an “Armenian Feast” for my husband whose family is Armenian. Not only was this recipe simple and easy, it was absolutely delicious. My grocery store doesn’t carry ground lamb, so I bought a pair of lamb chops, cut them up, and pulsed the meat in a food processor for a couple seconds. It worked wonderfully. I used the bones to make a stock for the “Armenian Lentils” recipe also found on this site. I debated on making some flatbread from scratch, but opted instead for whole wheat tortillas. The tortillas were on the small side, so it worked best when we just folded them over like a taco as opposed to stacking them and slicing like a pizza. The hubby was very impressed; and my children, ages 7, 3, and 2 asked if I would make this for dinner every night. That’s a keeper!

Two Layer Greek Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
This dip rocks! My friend brought it over last year, and I've been addicted since...You really should drain the yogurt to make "yogurt cheese"; otherwise the dip will be runny. I line a strainer with cheesecloth and place in a bowl. Pour the yogurt in and let drain for about an hour. You can substitute sour cream for the yogurt, but you won't get as much of an authentic taste. Also good with red onion (or any veggies for that matter!) Thanks for the great recipe!

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
This recipe is not right. I ended up with burnt edges and gooey center. I made this 3 times, and even lowered the temp. The only thing that worked for me was splitting the cake between two pans and lowering temp to 375. Obviously it cooked much faster than the recipe calls for. I do have to say that the parts of the cake that weren't gooey or burnt tasted really good. I'm sure with some more tweaking, this could be a great recipe.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
These did not turn out so well. Don't get me wrong-they were good, just not great. They didn't flatten out during baking, so I ended up with thick cookies that were done on the outside, but gooey on the inside. Probably will not make these again.

Tarragon Lover's Scallops

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
This dish was amazing! I didn't wipe the pan out after searing the scallops, so I had yummy browned bits in the sauce. Served with a wild rice pilaf and fresh greens. I was so proud of this dish, I took pictures and showed all my friends. They made me promise I would make it for them!

Sweet and Sour Sauce II

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
This is so quick and easy! I use the pineapple juice from the tidbits and add water to make 2 cups. (sometimes I half the recipe as it makes quite a bit) I also use ketchup in place of the tomato paste, it adds an extra zing. While the sauce is cooking, I bake some breaded chicken pieces and sautee some bell peppers and onions. Mix it all together and serve over hot rice for a "20 minute meal".

Jan's Fresh Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
This is everyone's new favorite summer pie! People actually ask me to make this for their birthday present! I like to use a homemade pre-baked pie crust and top with fresh whipped cream and lemon slices (or zest). I have also used individual sized tart crusts for potlucks, and they were a hit!

Pasta with Gorgonzola and Sweet Onion

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2004
This recipe was quick, easy, and best of all--delicious! My whole family loved it, even my 3 year old! My husband took the leftovers to work and said it was even better the next day. I didn't have "sweet" onions, so I added a touch of brown sugar to mine. Also I drizzled extra balsamic vinegar on top. I will be making this again--soon!
