Lamb L'Arabique

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
I am Heather Farah, the creator of this recipe. Thrilled that you all like it, but mine uses no heat whatsoever, certainly never a chile! (I have 4 kids, lol). Also, I've *always* used canned crushed & diced tomatoes (again, 4 kids, keeping it cheap). Everyone seems to modify it to their liking anyway, which is great! And yes, you can make a crock pot version, but it's best to do your caramelizing in a pan first and then let it all go in the crock; but I do prefer the higher heat of an oven. More flexibility.

Caramel Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2004
This frosting is incredibly delicious! It really has a TRUE caramel flavor. It was time consuming, and a little tricky to get to the right consistancy, due to my substituting half and half instead of the heavy cream. If you do that, allow for extra boil time to reduce the moisture level. This frosting has the texture of a thick glaze, so bear this in mind when spreading it. It's not going to look like butter cream on your cake. It will, however, be the most delicious stuff you've ever put on a cake!

Dark Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2004
This cake KICKS BUTT!!!! Oh my gosh was it MOIST!!! Soooo good! And I even messed it up: I went so far as to pour the batter in the pan and put it in the oven before realizing that I'd left out the coffee. It was only in for less than a minute, so I pulled it out, put it back in the mixer and added the coffee (which was cooling in the fridge, hence my forgetting it). I washed the pan, re-greased and floured it, poured the bater back in. I can't believe that in spite of that, it still turned out great! I HIGHLY recommend this recipe!!!

Pineapple Stuffing

Reviewed: May 30, 2004
This is really wonderful with ham. The contrast of salty ham and tangy sweet pineapple is just delicious! I think this recipe has a little too much sugar, however. I've had it before (made by someone else) and it was fruitier as opposed to sugary. Nonetheless, it's still worth making and serving with your next ham!

Christmas Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2004
Wow, was this a hit with my guests! I must confess, I had to make a substitution (Durkee French Fried onions for fresh...I just didn't have the time to chop them up). I didn't do mine the night before, so I baked it for 45 minutes, as the recipe stated, and it was fine. I served it with a dollop of sour cream on the side of each plate, as it reminded me so much of potato pancakes. This recipe is definitely going to remain in my repertoire; however, I'll have to pretend I never looked at the fat content in the nutritional information.....

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2004
Very good, very original dish, especially for breakfast with company. I made it recently for friends and it was a hit. However, I think 12 eggs were more than necessary. I used 9, and still had to add extra time and increase the heat to get the middle to set. The bread I used was 2 days old, and should have absorbed the eggs quite well. I think it would also be wonderful with substitute fruits, like strawberries or lingonberries. Word to the wise: get your guests to eat it all, because the it doesn't make for the best leftovers, due to the extremely eggy texture. Overall, though, I think it's a great recipe and will definitely serve it again.
