Vegan Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
These were wonderful, moist and certainly didn't leave anyone wanting for dairy or eggs. I topped these with fresh beries and glazed with apricot allfruit jam. They were a hug hit in the office!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
WOW! Didn't have enough sour cream so substituted 1/3 cup buttermilk to make up the difference. Used currants instead of raisins and before baking, brushed with butter and sprinkled raw sugar on top for a little crunch. I patted this into 2 rounds instead of one, cut each into eights to make 16 instead of 8 scones. Delicious! Can't wait to try with dried cranberries!

The Whole Jar of Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
great recipe..I made these 2 days ago and they ate still crisp chewy. My personal secret is the always turn my cookie sheets front to back and top to bottom half way thru the baking time. I rolled these in sprinkles before pressing them out with a fork for some holiday color and they turned out beautiful and delicious. I forgot to frige the dough but still worked great.Thanks!

Moroccan Lentil Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
Wow was this good! The fresh Cilantro was really the star and really brightened the flavor. And the lime just pulled it all together. I made a couple changes because I forgot to buy some ingredients or they were not available. I substituted some sweet onion for the green onion- a red one would have been fine too. Also it's January so there are no real tomatoes on the east coast right now so I used canned tomatoes with jalapeno peppers (well drained) in place of the tomatoes and hot peppers- gave it the perfect amount of heat. This is a definite do again! Thanks for a terrific recipe!

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: May 8, 2006
This was amazing! The only problem I had making this was that my dogs ate my lady fingers! This was 10:30 at night and I was too tired to make my own and no stores were open to get more. I make my marcapone cream mixture and fridged it overnight. I also halved my Kahlua with expresso. The next day it all came together easy as could be! I allowed this to marry overnight and got rave reviews. Thanks so much for a fabulous recipe!

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
I was a little sceptical because the batter was so dense but it may have been cold because I used frozen berries. I doubled the recipe and baked in a 5 x 13" pan. It baked up beautifully but I did need to increase the baking time by about 20 minutes. For the crumb topping I used cold butter instead of soft and used a pastry mixer to cut it into the flour and sugar. This worked well and created nice crumbs. My cake came out perfect with a moist dense crumb and lucious blueberries throughout. A+ Thanks for such a great recipe!

Cuban Water Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2006
I was very sceptical as to how this would turn out...I rushed thru the recipe and I think I used 1 cup too much flour. I ended up adding 1/2 cup add'l water and my bread dough (before the first rise) resembled brains more than bread. Once it rose, it kneaded out nice and smooth and rose again to make 2 lovely loaves. I used a pan of hot H2O in the oven. Good crust, great texture-nice and dense. Yummy with butter and jam. Thank you very much!

Grilled Eggplant Moussaka

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
Oh WOW! This was delicious. Time consuming but well worth the effort! I used my grill pan for the veggies. Had a small round seedless eggplant and yukon gold potatoes but omitted the zucchini-didn't have any. Also used about jarred spaghetti sauce instead of tomatoes 'cause I didn't have them either. Turned out great! Next time I'm gonna try this with ground lamb. Thanks Constantina!

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2006
Thses are a lot of effort to make but to quote my hubby "oh my God, these are the best I've ever had!" They are wonderful. I made them up ahead of time and just kept them fridged til I was ready to fry they, A MUST TRY!

Blueberry Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2005
This turned out delicious. When I brought it to the picnic, they wanted to cut it and eat it before the burgers and dogs! I switched out the sugar in the pie for splenda but kept the topping the same. You may need to adjust sweetening to the blueberries. Mine were early in the season and a bit tart, though the hubby prefers it that way. Easily doubled too! Thank you!

New Years Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
I never ate black eyed peas before but wanted to start the year with good luck. I had to omit the bell pepper. I substituted diced leftover Christmas ham for the smoked sausage and a smoked pork neck bone for the hog jowl, I also added a bay leaf. Last, I used chicken broth instead of the water and brown rice instead of white. My husband and both agreed this "was perfect". I realize I made a lot of changes from the original recipe but without the original, I never could have made this wonderful dish. Thank you I. Tucker.

Tostones (Fried Plantains)

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2006
these taste just like the ones I had at cuban restaurant. I served these with the mojo marinade for "grilled mojo chicken with asparagus" on this site. The mojo makes a great dipping sauce.

Roasted Tomatillo and Garlic Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
OMG. This was my first year to grow tomatillos and I will be sure to grow them again next year just so I can make this. I used only 2 jalapenos and added lime juice at the end. I then simmered it with some precooked shredded chicken, rolled it all in some tortillas topped with more salsa and some shredded cheese. This recipe is a HOME RUN!

Beignets

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
I've never been to New Orleans so I have nothing to compare these with. That being said, how can you go wrong??? It's fried dough! I was looking for something to meet the "fried in oil" tradition of Hanukkah without my inlaws tradition of Dunkin' Donuts; hence the beignets. The dough was very easy to work with and I rolled these out and had them cut up and ready to go hours before dessert. That way they were fresh and hot and oh so yummy when were were ready for dessert. I made these last night dusted with powdered sugar but had way too much dough for our small family so I covered and fridged the rest for the next day (if you do this, make sure they are well dusted top and bottom with flour so they don't stick). Today I fried up some more (they puffed up just as lovely as yesterday) and sprinkled them with granulated sugar, perhaps tomorrow I'll try cinnamon sugar. My hubby who misses his traditional D.D. jelly donut put jelly in the middle of 1 uncooked piece of beinet dough and topped with another piece of dough and pinched it all the way around and fried it up, then dredged in sugar. YUMMY! My son just came in from college class and threw in a few to fry for a snack and he concurs, 5 stars!!We have definitely left beignet tradition but I love a recipe that I can play with and create my own twist. Thanks Regina, my who family enjoyed playing with this!

Sweet and Nutty Moroccan Couscous

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
I took the suggestion of a few and halved the cinnamon, using 1.5 tbsp. This was fine for my tastes. My husband who likes cinnamon less thought it was too much. I also used chicken broth because I didn't have veggie broth and that worked out fine. Recipe is dry and I needed to add some more stock and butter but overall it was delicious but seems to lend itself more for breakfast. And I certainly plan to enjoy it that way tomorrow! I would rate a 5 by the taste but but gave up a point because I needed to doctor the recipe.
