Cuban Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I was looking for something a little different and this was a great choice. It's very flavorful and satisfying. My alterations were to double the meat, onions and tomato sauce, and add a 7 oz can of diced green chiles. I also browned the meat first and then sauteed the onions on top of all the browned bits from the meat and deglazed with the sherry. This all helped to make a thick, dark gravy.

Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
These fish tacos were really tasty! The tangy jicama salsa really makes them great. I oven-fried the fish instead of grilling. Dilute some mayo with a little water until yougurty. Add spices. Dip fish in seasoned mayo and then Panko breadcrumbs. Bake on a lightly oiled baking sheet at 500 degrees for ~ 10 minutes.

Birthday Bones

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
I made these cookies for my cousin's dog Vida. When the box arrived in the mail, Vida went right over and started licking the box. Instead of milk, I used a mashed apple that I cooked in the microwave and water. I also added 1/2 cup of chopped fresh cilantro. After the initial baking time of 20 min at 375, I let them go an additional ~ 30 min at 250 to dry out more.

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
I only had regular rolled oats so I blitzed them in my spice mill. Also had no buttermilk so I used 1/2 cup milk plus 1/4 cup yogurt. Left out the sugar. The recipe made three 7-inch pancakes. They were great with some apricot jam.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
Great brownies! The batter/dough is kinda like chocolate mortar. Use a fine grater for the zucchini and don't pack it into the measuring cup. I also like to mix the salt with the grated zucchini to extract it's moisture, then mix the wet mess in with the other ingredients.

Ultimate Irresistible Granola

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
This is a great granola. Currently I use 7 cups oats, 2 cups raisins/craisins, 3-4 cups assorted nuts/seeds, 1/3 cup oil, 1/2 cup honey, and 2 tsp cinnamon. This is considerably less sweet than the original but that's how I like it. Healthy walnut oil is a bit expensive but gives a nice flavor.

Indian Dahl with Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
My family enjoyed this recipe. To reduce it to one pot, I fried the mustard seeds in butter, then added the onions. Once the onions were softened, I mixed in all the other spices (doubled the cumin). Then in went the water, drained lentils, spinach (two 10-oz packages, squeezed semi-dry), and 1 tsp salt. Once the lentils were done, I added light coconut milk. To make it more spicy, you can substitute cayenne pepper for the chili powder.

Chicken Biryani, Hyderabadi Style

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
This was very good. The flavors were subtle but distinctive even without the curry leaves. I halved the recipe and used one large chicken breast, which shortened the cooking time. It goes well with "Indian Dal with Spinach" also from this site.

Acorn Squash Gnocchi with Parmesan Sage Beurre Blanc

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
These tasted good and were an interesting change of pace. Unfortunately, the whole wheat flour completely overpowered the squash. Semolina flour might be a better choice for letting the squash flavor come through.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
We enjoyed this soup very much, and it is indeed much better on the 2nd day. I added much more garlic, twice the paprika, and also used some cumin and hot chile sauce. We skipped the parmesan cheese, and served it instead with a curried fried egg on top.

Sicilian Homemade Ricotta Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
This was really fun and produced some yummy cheese. Real ricotta is made from the whey leftover from making hard cheese. This cheese method is more similar to queso blanco or paneer.

Cabbage Goulash

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2007
Even as someone who just recently decided that cabbage is edible, I thought this dish was quite tasty. The cabbage lightens up the meat very nicely. I added 2 tsp ground cumin and 1 tsp caraway seeds, and served it with gold potatoes. I'll definitely make it again.

Alan's Ultimate Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2007
I love these muffins, but they're even better with nuts. The only problems I encounter are that they stick to my pans and I always have to cook them for at least 30 minutes.
