Peanut Butter Balls VIII

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
i gave these five stars but i must say i altered the recipe quite a bit. I blended together all-bran and old fashioned oats and in a coffee grinder I ground flax seeds (made about two cups total with all the dry ingredients together). i did not have dry milk so this is why i added the other dry ingredients (and to make it more healthy). In a bowl, I mixed together all dry ing. until mixed well, then added a little over two cups of chunky peanut butter and a little less than 1/2 c. of honey. I mixed well and used my hands, it was pretty sticky. I then rolled this mixture into balls between my hands and coated them with sweetened coconut flakes. I put wax paper on a cookie tray and they are setting in the fridge, will taste them in the morning. Orginially i was shooting for sugar free, gluten free but this recipe has both (the all-bran has wheat and the peanut butter was not sugar free and the coconut was sweetened). next time I'll get natural pb and use unsweetened coconut flakes.

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
I read through several other recipes and their reviews. I decided on this one because other recipes only called for 2 TB of lemon juice, and this one calls for well over 1/2 c. of lemon juice. I don't know about you, but I like my lemon bars to taste like lemon, thank you very much. Sure, they may be a little more tart than the 2 TB bars, but it's lemon...it's supposed to!! So here is my review of this particular recipe: i followed the suggestions of Jeannette's review, that being, reducing the butter by 2 TB and cutting away the edge of the lemon bars from the pan when taken from oven, which was a life saver as these bars are slightly sticky and gooey at first. I did not add the lemon zest to the crust as I did not have real lemon. i also dusted the top of the bars with the confectioner's sugar. Yes, these are tart and tangy. Yes, they are gooey. But they are pretty awesome. My sister loved them and my daughter who does not like lemon bars ate a couple of them. This is a repeat recipe. Thanks for uploading! :)

Carne Adovada

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
Excellent and easy recipe! My modifications: I used a little over 2 lbs of pork stew and thinly sliced pork meat (what I had on hand). As suggested by others, I used a little less than a teaspoon of salt. When making the sauce in the frying pan, I added 1/2 cup of water at a time, and only used 2 cups, not 2.5 as suggested in recipe. I did not have time to marinate, so after making the sauce in the frying pan, I poured it over the meat in the slow cooker; cooked on high for 3.5 hours and it was done. Everything else stayed the same. The true test for a repeat meal is if my daughter likes it...she LOVED it. Thank you Delilah!

Blueberry Coffee Cake I

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
I made this cake with a bundt pan and the presentation was beautiful. Because the icing was plentiful, I put about half on the bottom of the cake before cooking, and then heated up the rest and added it to the top of the cake after it had cooled. i then placed blueberries in the cake center's hole and all around the cake on a beautiful cake dish. I gave this to my mom for Mother's Day and she loved it! The taste was excellent, the blueberries a great compliment to the cake, and presented beautifully! THANK YOU!

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
wow, great recipe! fyi: i used marjoram instead of thyme because i didn't have any; you can lessen the salt in the recipe as you may find it too salty. definitely use skinless fillets and make sure your salmon is room temperature. i used a heavy iron frying pan and heated olive oil on high; buttered and seasoned one side and seared it and while it was searing i buttered and seasoned the other side. i flipped it over and after a couple of minutes, i turned it down to low heat to cook all the way through. excellent recipe!!

Baked Cornish Game Hens

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Awesome recipe. My daughter loved it. My modifications: I cut up more veggies, so they spilled out of the cavity. I basted it every 15 or 20 minutes. It came out so tender. Not dry at all. Delicious. And this was my first time ever making cornish hens! Thanks a million for this recipes!!!!

Fatoosh

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
i used chopped romaine lettuce out of the bag, one white/one red onion, and didn't have parsley. i've never been a big fan of sumac, so i cut back on that a bit. i cut up two pitas with a pizza cutter to make squares, drizzled them with olive oil, popped them in the oven for ten minutes, and added them after i had topped my veggies with the dressing to avoid the sogginess. my daughter and i both enjoyed this recipe, thanks!
