Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
Awesome recipe. I didn't have whole cloves so I used 1/2 tsp of ground cloves instead. Still works...yum!

This dough is very tasty, but its also gooey. I allowed the dough to chill in my fridge for about 4.5-5 hours, but it was still too gooey to roll out. I ended up making small balls and smashing them flat with my hands. My oven is strange and small so I had to make my Hamantashen in about 4 or 5 different bakings; this allowed me to experiment with baking temperatures, times, and sizes of the actual Hamantashen. I found that the dough expanded at an alarming rate and only when I made tiny (about half the size I would normally make) Hamentashen did they actually cook to become a normal size. Also, I increased the temperature from 190C to 200C and baked them for 16 mins. After they are baked they are still quite gooey, but the fridge hardens them without losing the chewiness/softness. Not bad :) That being said, you should know the dough is very sweet as well. I can eat a few at a time, but not too many because I start to feel sick from the sweetness. I guess thats good though cos they'll last longer! :)

Cream Of Garlic Soup

Reviewed: May 16, 2007
This was so good. I went on a cruise last week and had some so I knew I had to find a recipe for me to be able to make it at home. I followed the recipe almost exactly except I did add more potato because I didn't want to throw out the excess. I used two bulbs (not cloves) of garlic and one large russet potato. Be careful when you puree the soup because the whipping cream expands. I would advise doing half and then the other half. My roommate has been raving about how great it is, but it is VERY garlic-y so if you don't like garlic, keep away. Our apartment smells great. Very easy recipe. Most of the time is just waiting around for things to simmer, so it did take longer then I expected, but was worth it. Will definitely make again.

very simple to make and good (and colourful) to eat even if the sauce smells kinda funny while cooking

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: May 24, 2006
This was excellent. My roommate never likes when I cook and he loved this one. He's never had it before and already wants to know how long it took to make (1:30-2)...I think I need to make it again! LadyJayPee was very helpful! 1)Didn't use the parsley 2)added 2tbsp dill weed 3)4 flat layers of phyllo and then 4 overhanging layers before pouring HALF the mixture in. Tuck in over filling and use 4 more overhanging layers and pour in the rest of the filling. Tuck over filling. Top with 4 layers and tuck into pan 4)4 cloves of garlic, 1 bunch of green onions and 2 4oz pacakages of feta (the tomato and basil one was very tasty!) Great recipe...I feel like I'm back in Athens...yummy! Will definetly make again.
