Mangu

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
I wish the recipe could be altered to include the color of the plantain you should buy - it should be a green plantain because it is most starchy then, and works best in mangu. a yellow plantain is sweet, and you'd probably have to add much spice to alter the sweet taste. Ive never seen the pepper added within the plantain, but theres a first time for everything. Sometimes on top of mangu goes ‘Escabeche’- it is an onion/pepper gravy made with vinegar and oil. In the west indies there is a similar gravy (onion, peppers, pimento seed, ginger) they put on top of fish ans it is called escovitch, it is the same kind of delcious!

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
This is a great salad - just an FYI if you are using plain mayo, youll need the full sugar amount - using Miracle whip - especially the no fat - you'll definitely have to cut the sugar way down. MW fat free is loaded with it! Take a look at the sugar in your dressing before adding extra. I didnt use celery, but I did add green pepper to the Red peppper wow what a looker (and taster!) Sometimes a little shredded carrot on top is also a great addition. If you dont have to, try not to skip the celery seed - it adds a little something. This is definitely a fantastic summer addition!

Molly's Mouthwatering Tzatziki Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
This sauce is wonderful - I used a 2% greek yogurt, grated my cucumber by hand, strained it by wrapping the pulp in a simple paper towel squeezing a little. Used a little less garlic, but everything came out really well. It good with the falafel, and would make a great gyro sauce too!

Restaurant Style Chicken Nachos

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
I crisped up the chips a bit more as some of the reviews suggested. I used a store bought chicken and after shredding it, sauteed it with onions, garlic and peppers before adding the salsa, then i just followed the recipe on out, cuting down on some of the cheese. My family enjoyed it, will definitely make it again, not bad for my first crack at nachos. (I thought it tasted even better the next day)

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
I first halved the recipe, and then I substituted 1/4 cup of applesauce for 1/4 cup of the butter, and I added more vanilla along with cinnamon and nutmeg and just 3/4 of a cup of sugar. It was moist and tasted like a fine sweet potato pudding (like bread pudding, not the stuff in a cup). No icing needed - it was delicious. Add the "sweet spices" they really kick up the flavor!

Mini Ham And Cheese Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I added a little sauerkraut/miracle whip light/Mustard "Dressing" (just about a teaspoon) to the bottom of the bread, and then set the cheese and turkey (family doesnt eat ham) on top. I didnt melt the butter all the way, just softened it completely, so the butter, onion and poppyseeds made a spread, then I just put a dallop of it on top of the bread and baked it for 20 minutes. It melted well without a mess, and tasted great!

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
I only made the "crisp" part of this dish maninly because I have my own sure fire recipe for cooked apples that avoid the watered down soupiness that can sometimes occur. For that problem I would reccommend adding a tsp or two of flour or cornstarch to the apples and cinnamon. As for the crisp, I added some nutmeg and cinnamon to it too and it came out great.

Quick and Easy Lemon Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2007
Ive made this pie every summer for the past two years, and I love it. It's like having a cool refreshing slice of lemon-like cheesecake. Yum!

Perfect Party Punch

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
What a wonderful tasting punch. It reminded me of the punch I used to have a church socials as a child. I omitted the Bananas and froze half of the pinapples and strawberies, it came out yum! I must also say that I appreciated the leeway left to the cook to alter the recipe in the way they saw fit, I think a part of growing as a chef is learning to incorporate your own flair. I could use sprite, and someone else would use 7up, and they are both correct to the punch, just made our own way (both delicious too!). Way to go, great recipe!

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2006
This is a very good recipe, I found I didnt even need to frost them. They were good just on their own. I felt if I frosted them they might be too sweet. Very good recipe!

T's Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: May 31, 2006
I tried these last Sunday, and they turned out very well. I omitted the lemon pepper and added a teaspoon of zesty italian (liquid) dressing. Delicious. These fries do not get crispy but they do keep their shape very well. Thank You!
