Pakistani Pot Roast Beef Fillets (Pasanday)

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2003
My husband and I dine at Indian/Pakistani restaurants frequently. I enjoy the cuisine, but my husband is a fanatic. I finally made this recipe after adding it to my recipe box almost a year ago. It was so easy to prepare...I've avoided making this food at home because most recipes I've seen are very complicated. I got all the spices needed and a large package af naan at an Indian grocery for only $8.00, much cheaper than a regular supermarket, IF you can even find all of them there. The only change I made was that I added flour and water right before serving to improve the consistency because the sauce was very thin. I also simmered it over medium to medium-low heat rather than low, because it just didn't seem to be cooking. I served it over a bed of steamed basmati rice. It turned out wonderful...very authentic and unbelievably easy. My husband couldn't stop raving, and he wants me to make it often. Superb!

Crab Stuffed Flounder

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2002
I made this recipe last night...I had purchased the crabmeat on a whim and happened to have flounder in the freezer. I did not have any green bell pepper or mustard powder. I used one tsp dijon mustard in it's place. It turned out very well, but a little bland. Definately needed more salt and I wish I had added some Old Bay, which I did have in my spice cabinet, but forgot about. My family enjoyed it, but agreed it needed just a little more pizazz. The mayo and egg yolk mixture on top was very good...reminded me of hollindaise sauce. It looked very nice on the plate, like something you'd get at a quality seafood restarant. I will definately make this again!

Spaghetti With Red Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2002
My family and I have been enjoying Angela's white clam sauce for a long time, so I decided it was time to try the red. I found it too salty, first of all. The canned tomatoes are salty enough. It was also to thick and pasty for clam sauce. I think it is hearty enough for meatballs or sausage. I find it interesting that the recipe got such high marks when the reviewers didn't even follow the recipe. Next time, I will add olive oil, and omit the tomato sauce. I will also add the clam juice during cooking, but reserve the clams until ready to serve...this way the acid in the tomato sauce won't have time to make the clams tough. I think with a little tweaking, this will be a better dish.

Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2001
I've been enjoying this recipe for a few months now and decided to take it a step further...I took a Boboli pizza shell and topped it with shredded mozzarella, then I spread 1/2 the baked dip over the cheese. Then I placed sliced roma tomatoes on top and baked according to the directions on the Boboli package. I sprinkled the pizza with a little romano cheese and served. It was out of this world! A truly gourmet pizza using this wonderful dip.

Dinah's Baked Scallops

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2001
I tried this recipe for my family last was good, but I'd like to change a couple things next time. First, the crumbs need something more than pepper and garlic powder...perhaps a little salt, or perhaps one small clove of garlic sauteed in the butter instead of the garlic powder. I may try bread crumbs next time. Instead of coating the entire scallop with the crumbs, I'll try just coating the tops only, because we found them a little too soggy. They need to be broiled the last couple minutes in order to brown well.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2001
This banana bread is wonderful...I add just a little extra brown sugar for a little extra sweetness. Also, I was short on bananas the second time I made it so I added two 6 oz. jars of pureed Beech-Nut baby bananas and a couple tablespoons of applesauce and it turned out even better. Now I keep a couple jars on hand because I never seem to have enough bananas...I also topped the loaf with chopped walnuts. Delicious!

Spaghetti with White Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2000
This recipe went over big at my house. My husband has instructed me never to buy canned clam sauce again. He made me make twice this week! I substituted one can of whole baby clams for one of the cans of minced clams...delicious!
