Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
This came out really well. I modified a few things based on the suggestions from the reviews such as adding tomatoes, adding some curry powder, and using half the cayenne (it was still spicy, but much more tolerable for my taste). I let it simmer for about 20 minutes so the chickpeas would be really tender and the liquid could reduce and thicken a bit and then I thickened it a little bit further using a cornstarch slurry so the sauce wouldn't be so watery. As a few others suggested, I prepared the chickpeas tonight to be served tomorrow. If it's yummy today, it will be awesome tomorrow. If you like exotic spices and flavors, then you should definitely give this a try.

Buttermilk Cinnamon Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I made these last night to give out as gifts around the office. They were very easy to make and they turned out delicious! I got a yield of 4 mini loaves per batch. On one batch, I made 2 mini's and 1 large loaf, and the portion turned out perfectly. I wrapped each mini loaf in Christmas cellophane bags and tied them with ribbon. I'll post a pic for everyone to see. (=

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
I made these last night for a party and they were delicious. I cheated for the sake of time and used frozen meatballs, but I made the sauce just as the recipe called for and it turned out very well. I took Jenn's suggestion and added a splash of Worcestire, but it would have been fine without it, too. I'm making them again for another party this week. I can't believe something this tasty is so effortless.

Arroz con Leche

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
Mmmm... Que RICO!!! This rice pudding was creamy, delicious, and simple. I omitted the lemon and anise because I didn't have any. I also swapped evaporated milk for regular milk and it still turned out great. Yummy!!

Salsa Biscuit Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2006
This was very tasty. I added half a packet of taco seasoning to give it some zip. I had enough mixture left over to make another meal.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2006
This dip was fantastic and very easy to prepare. I served it a party and everyone was asking me for the recipe. I kept the recipe the same for the most part, but since I'm in Mexico, I had to use ingredients that are locally available. Instead of mozzarella cheese, I used Manchego cheese and I couldn't find plain alfredo sauce, so I used a sun-dried tomato alfredo sauce that was available, instead. The only thing I'll do differently next time is to put the spinach and artichokes into a food processor first so that the dip has a smoother texture. Great dip, thanks for sharing it with us.

Three Bean Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
This salad is sitting in the fridge right now and I can barely wait until tomorrow to serve it at a party. It was delicious even when it was still warm! I even got my finicky little sister to eat it and she loved it (great way to get kids to eat veggies). Since I'm out of town, and don't have access to the same goodies we have in the states, I had to adjust a couple things. I added a can of corn and pinto beans. I didn't have wax beans,dry mustard or tarragon, but I did use fresh cilantro and Badia Sazon Completa, and it tastes fantastic. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Thai Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
It turned out very tasty, but I had to make a couple modifications. Try using room temperature pb and add about 3/4 cups of water to the peanut sauce or it will clump and stick to the pan. If possible, prepare the sauce separately and then add it to the chicken.
