Hummus III

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
I love love love this recipe. I make it on a weekly basis starting with garbanzo beans that I buy in the bulk section at my health food store and then soak overnight and then cook up the next day. It's much healthier more economical that way so I can buy the tahini brand I want. This recipe is very tweak friendly and I have enjoyed try different spices like cumin to give it a different flavor depending on what I'm craving. Next time I'm going to try a red bell pepper version. One thing I ALWAYS do is drizzle good olive oil in the food processor as it's blending and I also add plenty of my bean juice from cooking. You do need to add some form of liquid or it will be much to dry. Thanks for the recipe RC2STEP! It's GREAT!!!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Hey this is pretty yummy. I'm kinda pricky when it comes to my sloppy joes. My mom cans a sweet onion sauce that I grew up with in her famous sloppy joes, so this recipe has some pretty tough competion. With all that said this recipe all in all was a real good and really easy to make. Thanks for the great recipe.

Steakhouse Wheat Bread for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
Really good sweet dark bread, the coffee and chocolate undertones are wonderful. I made this with my bread maker, aka 'my new best friend'. I weigh out all my flours when making bread. This may be why some people report problems with bread recipies. You can convert recipies to metric at the servings tab on top of the recipe and then use a kitchen scale to help get the correct amounts of flour. Thanks for the great recipe!

This was really good. Next time I think I will add in more honey for a sweeter taste. This was very good as the recipe goes. Thank you for the yummy recipe.

Zesty Chicken Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
Yummy! My husband and I really like this recipe. I don't add anything else to it but I'm sure you could add some red, orange or yellow peppers with a bit of onion if you had extra of to use. I don't add the sour cream on at the end, just don't think it needs it. I do mix the cheddar in though instead of on top at end. Thank you for the wonderful easy to make recipe.

Goulash Supreme

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
Yummy! Thanks this is a good one. Will add to my rotation. Added marinaria sauce instead of stewed tomatoes because that is what was on hand. Also added red and yellow peppers to make it more like what mom did as a kid. Really good hearty dinner. Hubby like it a lot. Good seasoning and flavor.

Shrimp and Crab Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
Liked this a lot. I used a lime green enchilada sauce which was nice cause it added a slight citrus flavor that complimented the shrimp and crab. I did add a bit more sauce to make sure it was not dry. Clean and simple flavors. Was a bit surprised that with few ingredients how good it was. Thanks for the recipe.

Eric's Best New York Style Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
WOW!! This was a great recipe. This was my first attempt at a cheesecake and it was a huge success. I made it for Chrismas with my family and everyone loved it. I did omit the liqueur and vanilla as I wanted a taste as true to NY style as possible, and it was. I didn't have any cracks or problems with the firmness of the cake. I did read the cheesecake tips given here and found them very helpful. Some of the things I did were: 1. all ingreds at room temp., I actually worked the day I make the cheesecake and let the ingreds. sit out for 6 hours prior. 2. I lined my springform pan with parchment paper, I think this helped with the final look and cleanliness. 3. After I foiled the bottom of my springform pan I also placed it in an oversized roasting bag before filling the pan with batter and placing it into a large aluminum roasting pan in a water bath. I purchased a large disposable aluminum roasting pan from walmart for about $2. In addition to these step I did also follow the tips for chessecakes listed here on the recipe page. For my topping, I made a cherry topping from scratch found on Epicurious. Hope this helps and you come out with a fantasitc cheesecake also! Thanks Eric for the recipe, I'm sure it will be made again and again!
