Abbey's White Chocolate Latte

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
I'm not a big coffee fan, but WoW! So rich and smooth. And I didn't even follow the directions to a T. I subbed Silk brand vanilla soy milk + heavy cream and Nescafe instant coffee. Yummers ;)

Garlic-Cilantro Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
Whoa. So yummy!! and a tasty spin on salt & pepper-seasoned scrambled eggs. I used cilantro/parsley mix, garlic/parsley butter, and left out the milk because it doesn't agree with me (though sour cream is fine), and crema agria (mexican sour cream) + powdered parm (kind used for spaghetti). So delicious!!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
Incredible! Just the texture/flavor I was looking for but better. I halved the recipe, subbed 1/2 mashed banana for the egg since I was out, used 1/2 c. brown sugar + 1/4 c. white sugar, and left out the cocoa powder and walnuts. Yum yum :)

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
Oh..my..goodness!!!! I used 4 eggs, 3/4 each of sugars, shredded carrots (leftover from juicing), and added shredded coconut and raisins; omitted glaze as it was already perfectly sweetened. The Result: A flavorful, dense, moist cake. Served hot with tea, so perfect for a cold, rainy day.

Beer Batter Fish Made Great

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Very satisfying and so easy! Used spices mentioned + Old Bay, from user suggestion. Cut out the beer/flour and used whipped eggs/crushed saltines instead-I highly recommend it. The saltines create a crunchy texture and very little waste, compared to using flour for the batter/dredging.

Viva Madrid Spanish Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
Simple and delicious! I halved the recipe and used 4 dates and 4 slices of bacon. I found the bacon flavor to be overhwelming, so I would use 4 bacon slices and 4 dates for the entire dish. The sauce was also very sweet, so I added balsalmic vinegar which balanced the flavors. Also, I subbed oregano, cilantro/parsley for the thyme. And finally, I paired with simple saffron rice which soaked up the strong flavors. Yummy!

Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
Not a homerun, but could have been due to using too much clove powder when I doubled the recipe. I was also out of nutmeg, so I used pumpkin spice. I made a gravy from blending the cooked onion with the drippings = delicious.

Creamy Apple Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
To get it creamy, blend the oats before or after cooking. I didn't have milk and it doesn't agree with me anyway, so I did this. Also, I didn't follow this recipe closely. The blending part is what did it for me.

Mediterranean Chicken with Eggplant

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
Very tasty. I enhanced the flavor with 3 large garlic cloves, dried whole leaf oregano (better flavor) and balsamic vinegar marinade for the chicken-per recommendations. I served with sticky white rice, and get this, melted monterey jack cheese on top of chicken/vegetables. Perfect! Overall good recipe made better with addt'l ingredients to enhance flavor.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
I usually make guac by mixing avocado with store bought salsa, but omg, I'll NEVER do that again after having tried this recipe. Everything is in perfect, delicious proportion. Substitute organic ingredients and My oh my, I could eat a whole bowl of this alone!

Oatmeal Craisin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
Great recipe :) Chewy and soft. I added ~1/2c. walnuts, and 1tsp. cinnamon powder. Made all the difference! Using white chocolate chips would be perfect too. The only recipe tweak I would make is to use 3/4c. white sugar instead of 1c. I thought the cookies were a little on the sweet side, but overall, very yummy.

Chicken Hurry

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
Never used ketchup as a sauce base, but this was good. I added crushed garlic cloves and parsley. I also doubled the recipe according to other reviewer's suggestions. Overall a good, easy, and quick recipe for a weeknight.

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
Perfect melt in your mouth cookies! Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. I didn't have baking soda, so I used baking powder. I also switched the measurements for the ground ginger and cinnamon (I prefer cinnamon flavor to the ginger), and everything came out delicious with a distinct ginger taste. The only change: don't use granulated cinn/sugar mix. It made the texture too grainy for me.

Lebanese Baked Eggplant

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
Delicious! I used 1 can crushed tomatoes, 1 can stewed. I also used halal veal chunks (ribs, roast, etc) and baby eggplant (sliced). So good! The only suggestion is it needs more flavor, so I threw in a few whole cloves of garlic. This made all the difference.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
AWESOMEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Such a deliciously, cheesy, creamy, comforting recipe. I used red potatoes b/c they're starchier and soft and creamy when cooked. Didn't have mayo, used a pkg. cheddar/jack cheese, and used beef bouillon-practically what I had on hand. Otherwise, followed the recipe. AMAZING!!!!

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2007
Fantastic! I even burned the "toasted" coconut (dried) and it was still delish. I did make some changes though: ghee for butter b/c I had none on hand and 1 tsp. coconut extract and 1/2 tsp. almond extract. I also refrigerated for 15 minutes. The only problem is I didn't make enough. Great suggestions guys!! :D

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
I know this recipe was featured in the cookbook, but I thought it was average. The dough needs more flour or the cookie crumbles. Also, I would lessen the sugar. I do love the amount of butter as it makes the cookies chewy in the middle and crispy on the edges. Add more cinnamon too or the flavor is a bit bland.

Veal Scallopini

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
This was quick and easy. I used thin eye round steak instead of veal, sprinkled on meat tenderizer, and pounded them a bit. I also sauteed garlic in the oil/butter mixture, and sprinkled the meat with onion powder before flouring. Simply delish :D

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
I made these when I was having a sweet craving, but I only had 3/4c. flour. Don't trust the conversions b/c when the recipe is halved (for 10 not 20) the batter comes out too buttery (butter actually boiled out during baking) and eggy (in a firm way). And I used Stevia not sugar, though it should'nt have mattered. Overall though, the mixture smelled yummy, and after dipping the mini brownies in caramel sauce, they were decent enough to satisfy my craving.

Maple Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
Wow My husband woke up this morning and had a craving for pancakes, so I found this recipe. It was delicious! I wasn't prepared for how good they were as I seldom eat pancakes. I did make one modification though: 2 tbsp. coconut oil instead of vegetable oil and I cooked them in butter.
