Roasted Okra

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2014
Fantastic. Tastes remarkably like French fries! I'm an okra hater from way back, so this was a revelation. Make sure to cut both ends off the okra and dry thoroughly after rinsing. I also made a few minor changes to ensure there was no slime: I wiped the foil pan lining with oil as if greasing a cake pan, drizzled the okra with oil, tossed them around to make sure all were coated, sprinkled them with Adobo seasoning, garlic powder and pepper. I placed them on the center rack of the oven and roasted them for 35 minutes rather than the 10 - 15 in the recipe. They get brown and crispy but still soft on the inside and NO SLIME. Be advised, though- they shrink in size by half, so make sure you cook enough. My kids love them cooked this way and ask for them often.

Italian Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
They should be made with anise, not vanilla. The ones I remember were not this bland or dry. These taste more like dry drop biscuits with frosting.
