Ceviche Peruano

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
I laughed so hard when I read that a reviewer sauteed this!! Ceviche is ONLY "cooked" in the lime juice and is not placed over heat of any kind. I've never seen white potato served in a cevicheria...but the sweet potato is a must. The onion should be sliced and this should NOT be eaten over crackers if you want authentic. Usually it is either plain fish (bass is more common than tilapia) or a lot of mixed sea creatures you won't find for sale in the States. Like a lot of Peruvians, I prefer the pure fish version.

Strawberry Pineapple Chicken Bites

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
Expected to love it...it was "okay." Served as main dish on rice. Don't sell "chili sauce" here but used tomato sauce and added garlic and vinegar as substitute. Might depend a lot on the quality of your preserves and chili sauce.

Easy Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
I've made this several times and they're very yummy. Cut leavening agent in half for high altitude (10,000ft) and it works fine.

Blue Cheese Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
I have made this nearly a dozen times now... I've tried it the way the recipe describes but prefer it served warm without sour cream or veggies on top. It's so good warm on crackers or bread. It's a perfect easy bake and take for parties, and I have been asked for this recipes so many times!

Spiced Apple-Carrot Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
I never buy apples or carrots, generally, but when I accidently ended up with both in my produce drawer, I went looking for a recipe to deal with them before they spoiled. This was great! I double the spices and sugar, added cinnamon, and drizzled honey and molasses before baking so it was super rich and yummy. More like sweet potatoes than like carrots.

Baby Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
I had never tried spinach with nutmeg so when I found baby spinach at my grocery store (I live in a country where it is rarely available) I was excited to try this--very yummy. I must say that I skimped on the spinach because a cup seemed like too much but then wished I'd put more. I did wilt the spinach with some onion before mixing it in (no onion powder and I was afraid the spinach would not soften enough) and I did a 1 egg, 3 whites combination to cut the fat. Yummy!

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
This recipe has potential but HOW you cook it matters a lot. Since the batter is thin (depending upon the consistency of your cottage cheese), make sure you make very small pancakes. It is impossible to flip these if they are large since they stay custardy in the middle. It is also important to use medium, not high, heat. I used applesauce instead of oil and added a little sugar to the second batch.They are good without it but not sweet at all--reminded me of potato pancakes and were yummy served with applesauce and not syrup.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
I've made this twice. Once at sea level where it came together perfectly and easily and looked and served great. Everyone was impressed. The 2nd time I tried it at an altitude of 10000ft. No cake mixes here so I tried a high altitude white cake recipe and that worked fine. Not perfectly flat layers but close enough. THe marscaone mixture tirned to liquird as soon as I mized it though, and it realy didn't work for filling. I had to add cream cheese to bulk it up. Less flavor. Also, the icing, when I added the mascarpone mixture, totally fell flat so I had to start over and add very little of the cheese to the whipped cream. It worked okay, the cake fell apart when served but high altitude complicates things so I don't blame the recipe. I would just warn be careful what mascarpone you buy--not all will stay solid enough to fill a cake.

Almond Chocolate Coconut Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
I must make Toll House CC more than most. It is double that recipe (and double the normal output of a cookie recipe). I had to adjust for 9,000 ft altitude so I halved the baking powder, added extra 1/2 cup flour, doubled the vanilla, and added 3 tbls milk. They maintained their chewyness about as well as Toll House (I can make perfect Toll House at sea level so I trust these would work well too). I can't buy here in Peru, but strongly recommend almond AND Coconut extracts if you want their flavor and not just their textures. I love chocolate but if you want this to be different from CC cookies, use fewer CCs.

Chocolate Cappuccino Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2004
We made this for a Christmas party, and got a little ways into the recipe before realizing the time committment we had made! It was fun to make though, and turned out well. The texture on the cheesecake was a 9 out of a 10 on a cheesecake expert's scale. The flavors went well together, SO rich. I think I'd make the chocolate layer thinner nexttime cause it was almost too much. Definitely worth the work if you love chocolate and coffee. One note: don't the mistake my fellow inexperienced chef almost made...if you use chocolate chips and not blocks of baking chocolate you don't have to chop them before melting =) ooh, and "chocolate cookie crumbs" was a little vague so I'm curious as to what everyone used! I ended up using vanilla wafers and teh texture was great and it was still chocolaty enough for this chocoholic.

German Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
I wanted to like it! I used honey BBQ as others advised. Not even mashed potatoes could save it. I guess I don't like the combo with sauerkraut.

Pear Walnut Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
This was good overall. I also used sweetened apple juice (all I had) so it was necessary to reduce the sugar. After I tried it I thought it was still too sweet so I added more soy sauce. The only thing I didn't have was parsley which I don't care for anyway but I ended up adding some oregano which complemented well and added flavor. Also added a little cayenne to offsetthe sweet. With these adjustments it was just as fast and really tasty. I would cut the sugar completely out the next time even though I like sweet, pear and apple juice was enough.
