Golompke (Beef and Cabbage Casserole)

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
This is a good base recipe but, and I know how everyone hates this, I had to change a few things. First of all, I had a head of cabbage left over so I cut that up and sauteed it with olive oil, 1 chopped onion and 3 cloves of garlic, minced. I used 2 lbs. ground chuck which I browned and drained. Then I made 2 c. of white rice in a large stock pot. Added the cabbage mixture, ground beef, 2 cans of soup, 1 can water, and 1 can of tomato sauce with the herbs and such already in there. and 1 envelope of dried onion soup mix. I mixed it all together and let the cabbage soften a little more with the lid on. It DISAPPEARED! My husband and brother added a few dashes of hot sauce to theirs. Definitely a winner and much, much easier than traditional cabbage rolls.

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
Delish! I did as others suggested and baked them. Husband is a huge falafel fan and claimed they were better than the ones at the authentic local joints. Some said the recipe was time-consuming but honestly it doesn't take any more time than the average meatloaf! :)

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
These are delicious! I'm mad at myself for stumbling upon such an easy recipe for brownies. Now I can't stop making or eating them!! I did change 1 thing the second time I made them, I only used 1 egg b/c I wanted a less cake-like brownie and they turned out perfect. A handful of chocolate chips thrown in also makes them even more delectable. Thanks for such a wonderful, easy recipe!!

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
I'd rate it higher but I made some changes that I think made these especially good. I know how people hate when others tweak recipes but I just couldn't bring myself to use the shortening. Instead, I subbed 1/2 c. peanut butter and 1/4 c. butter. Rather than using 1 c. of white sugar, I used 1/2 c. brown sugar and 1/2 c. white sugar. I also added 3/4 c. chocolate chips and omitted the nuts. These were amazing! It's a cookie that is somewhat healthier than the standard chocolate chip but is just as delicious! Next time I may try using agave nectar instead of sugar to make it even healthier. Thanks for providing a yummy alternative to a regular oatmeal raisin cookie. :)

Oatmeal Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
I'd like to give this five stars but I couldn't bring myself to use the shortening called for in the cream recipe. The cookie made as directed is delicious. Others advised cooking for only 9 minutes but I had to cook for a total of 11, must have been the difference in my oven. I recommend flattening them before baking so they're easier to eat later. I also added a tad of molasses to the cookie batter. I cut the recipe by 3/4 so I came away with 9 cookies and made the following cream mix: 2 tbs. butter, 3/4 c. marshmallow fluff, 1 tbs. cream cheese. YUM!

Bob's Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
Awesome. I omitted the artichokes but basically used the recipe for the dressing. I added a little more balsamic but it was delish. I also sauteed the peppers, onion, garlic and zucchini before adding it. This will definitely be a staple in our house.

Quick Cheeseburger Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
This was okay as written. I felt it needed ketchup and mustard and a little mayo to make it a true cheeseburger pie. Mind you, these are things I like on my cheeseburger so that's why I added them. I also added some diced tomatoes which made it very good. I do wish I had some dill pickles to add into the mixture b/c I think it would've taken it over the top but unfortunately all I had were bread and butter and I didn't think that would bode well with the mixture. Definitely a good weeknight option though which I will probably make again.

Praline Pumpkin Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
OMG, this is delicious. I didn't have light cream so I used 3/4 c. of heavy cream and 1/4 c. skim milk and it worked fine. Also didn't have mace so I just omitted it. I had no probs with it firming up and the added praline mixture on the bottom is to die for. I don't think I'll make a traditional pumpkin pie again. Thanks for such a delicious recipe!!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
I don't think you could fairly call this spicy, at least not in my book. I added jalapenos, onions, and crushed red pepper and it still wasn't as hot as I had hoped. It is definitely sweet and sticky. It has a flavor reminiscent of teriyaki chicken. It's good and I'll probably make it again for my husband. He loved it but it was a tad too sweet for me.

Scrumptious Frosted Fudgy Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
Wow!! Celeste gave me this recipe on the exchange well before it was published but I was secretly terrified of it, thinking I'd burn the chocolate and make an utter mess. Why, oh, why did I not make these months ago?!? They are too die for and my idiot self even only added 1/2 a c. of butter to the batter instead of a full cup. I can only imagine how good they'd be with a full cup. Make sure you follow the directions with the icing. The icing alone tastes like a delicious rich brownie batter. I'll be making these for years to come. Thanks for a real winner, Celeste!!

Caribbean Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
Delish and I'm sure it will even better when I get rid of this cold and can taste it more. LOL. I did have to use 3 cups of all purpose flour b/c I didn't have any whole wheat but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I'm wondering has anyone tried using a cup of the pineapple sauce they make instead of applesauce? That may make it taste more like a pina coloda. Yum!!

'Chinese Buffet' Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
As written pretty good but I added a couple of things to make them more like the green beans at the local buffet. Definitely use the sugar, it cuts the saltiness. I also added a couple splashes of white wine and balsamic vinegar. It makes them delish!!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
This is delish. It was good as written but I did take other reviewers' advice and had some extra chicken stock on hand. I also added a bit of garlic powder, wanted to use fresh but didn't have any on hand, and some chopped sun-dried tomatoes. Yummy!!

Easter Bread Ring

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
I'll give this three b/c it did turn out as a bread. However, I can't give it more than that b/c I didn't follow the recipe. I didn't add the dried fruit or anise seed or colored eggs; instead I added anise extract and it still wasn't enough for my tastes. I was hoping this would be like my Sicilian grandma's Pigna but it didn't come close. If you're not Italian and not used to authentic Pigna then this may satisfy your needs but it just didn't do it for me. I crumbled it up and gave it to the birds.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
Very good option for healthy brownies. Wal-Mart only had 1 zucchini left so I pureed that and used 1 egg. The brownies were a bit cake-like but I didn't want them to be too dry with only 1 c. of pureed zucchini. They were tasty but even better with frosting. I didn't have powdered sugar so I just bought a container of chocolate buttercream frosting. YUM!! These were really good and the little guy LOVED them!!

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
This is my go-to BBQ sauce!! It's delicious on everything, chicken, ribs, pork BBQ. I've used it as the sauce for a barbecue chicken pizza and it was awesome. I just can't get enough of it. I do leave out the celery seed simply b/c I never have it onhand but I really don't miss it. Thanks Big Al for a super BBQ sauce.
