Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
I only used 8 cups of water, added black pepper and some curry powder, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was great! I used smoked Polish sausage. It was nice and spicy and added much flavor to the soup. Boyfriend loved it!

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly, and overall, it was good. It came out a little tough and dry though. Maybe I worked the dough too much?

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
mmmm. I love these!! They're so delicious and so easy to make. I use dried cranberries instead of raisins, and double up the quantity! Sometimes I add a couple of drops of orange extract too. My friends ask me to make these all the time for a "special breakfast treat"!

Chicken Korma

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
"Authentic" korma or not, I thought this was delicious! I wasn't sure if I was supposed to leave the whole spices in the oil during the whole cooking time, or take them out before adding onion. But I left them in the whole time, taking them out just before serving. And my dish had some serious kick! I doubled everything in the recipe, except the chicken, cause I like "saucy" dishes. I served this with steamed broccoli and it was delicious! I brought some to work today for lunch and I can't wait to heat it up. I've never cooked with buttermilk before, but now it's definitely a favorite! Thank you for sharin!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2007
I've never made hummus before, but this was delicious! I'm on the South Beach Diet, so this is a great snack, with some celery to dip. I doubled the garlic. Next time I will add less tahini. Thank you for this recipe! I love the consitency as well!

Gourmet White Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
Being from Europe, I always found American pizzas to be very greasy and too cheesy. This was an interesting recipe, using feta cheese instead of traditional mozzarella, definitely favored my personal taste. The alfredo sauce combined with the pesto was delicious, and not as saggy as I had expected! I had some leftover tandoori chicken, which worked excellent on this. I used Jay's Signature Pizza Crust from this site and it turned out to be a weekend favorite! No more ordering in!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
DELICIOUS! It was a little "much" dough for a 12" pizza, but it DOES say "giant pizza crust". Excellent taste. I topped mine with chicken, alfredo sauce, plum tomatoes, and feta cheese. Crust was a breeze to make in the bread machine. THANK YOU!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
I'm not a beef person, chicken is my thing, but this stew was DELICIOUS! I just bought a slow cooker and this was my first go at it. Came out perfect, I wouldn't change a thing! I let it cook for 10 hours. This might be a stupid question, but can I double the recipe without increasing the time? THANK YOU!

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
I eliminated all the salt in the recipe, and this came out fantastic! Next time I'll make it, I will double or even triple the recipe. This is perfect to bring to lunch and be the envy of all co-workers. I love Indian food, and although this tasted similar to my favorite restaurant's, I think I actually like this better! Thank you soooo much for this recipe. I served it with jasmine saffron rice and a green salad and it was a hit! Oh, and I also broiled the chicken on their skewers instead of grilling it. And I let it marinate for 24 hours. I also didn't have any jalapeno, so I used scotch bonnet peppers (Jamaican hot peppers) and it was super spicy - JUST how I love it!

Jay's Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2006
Although time consuming, this recipe was well worth the efforts. And I had all of the ingredients at home! I followed the recipe EXACTLY and marinated chicken thighs (with skin) to be baked in the oven. I wish it was a little spicer, so next time I will add another jalapeno. As I was making the marinade, it didn't resemble the jerk seasonings that I'm used to. The marinade was thinner and it covered a LOT of chicken. The jerk that I'm used to is more pasty, like a rub. But this was great! I will make this again tonight!

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2005
WOW! I'm a BIG fan of Mediterranean food, and I've been buying the falafel mix in the supermarket for years. NO MORE! This recipe is easy AND delicious. I'm a beginner cook, and this was really fun to make! I followed the recipe to a tee, and it was perfect! I served it in whole wheat pitas with lettuce and tomato. I make my own sauce by combining shredded seedless cucumbers, drained yogurt (using a cheesecloth), dill weed, lemon juice, garlic and chopped onions. But Sean's sauce is similar to mine, so I'm sure it's just as great tasting as the falafels! Thanks Sean!

Classic Minestrone

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2004
Mmm, I added squash to the veggie mix. I also used chicken stock instead of vegetable stock, and used whole wheat pasta (more than called for). I wish I had put more carrots in the soup. I used crushed tomtoes (canned) instead of chopped. It worked great! I used pink kidney beans and great northern bean. I'm not a big soup OR tomato fan, but I will definitely make this again. Makes a great lunch to bring to work. And now I have enough soup for a week! Thanx!

Key Lime Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2004
At first, I wasn't going to make these cookies because of the "wet dough" reviews. I'm a beginner baker, and I just HATE sticky, wet dough. But I was craving for lime and sweetness. I used regular lime, and omitted the extra egg yolk. I used a ziploc bag with a cut corner to "spritz" the dough onto the cookie sheet. The powdered sugar made a big difference. They came out fantastic! They were a big hit, and disappeared in no time! Thanks for sharing!!!
