Garithes Yiouvetsi

Reviewed: May 1, 2006
My husband and I love this recipe. Very flavorful and rich. I suggests doubling the sauce and feta though. Great find though!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
This was exactly the kind of recipe I was looking for. There are thousands of ways to make cornbread and this is the way I like it. I did however 1/2 the amount of sugar and cook it in a hot, oiled iron skillet for a crispy crust.

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
This soup was YUMMY!!!! My super picky husband actually fought me for the leftovers. I only changed it a small bit. I put two cans of beans and added a few cut up carrots. Also, I substituted Herbs de Provence (with an extra pinch of rosemary) for italian season... its sounds subtle but makes a world of difference. Also I didn't put quite as much garlic. Really good with cornbread.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
This is a nice basic recipe. I love to eat it for snacks during the week. I did make a few changes. I used applesauce instead of oil and added some nutmeg to spice it up a bit. I also sift the flour before I measure it so that it won't turn out dry.

Malooba

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
My Jordanian husband makes this all the time. I don't care for the chicken with bones so he uses boneless skinless chicken breast and just reduces the boiling time. He also uses a pinch of saffron while soaking the rice... it gives it a nice flavor.

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2006
This recipe was REALLY yummy. I recommend using Muir Glen roasted tomato in the sauce. It gives it a great flavor.

Pasta, Broccoli and Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2006
This was really a pretty good recipe. I did make a few changes: I added about 3/4 c of half and half to the olive oil and reduced it a bit before adding the pesto... this gave the sauce a little creaminess. Also I seasoned the chicken with rosemary (2-3 pinches) and thyme. A keeper for sure.

Indian Rice (Pulao)

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
This recipe got RAVE reviews from my middle eastern husband. After dinner he was eating it directly from the pot. It's the real thing for sure. I didn't have shortening so I used butter and a touch of olive oil. I was really unsure about the cloth bit but I just tried it with a doubled tea towl under the lid. I'm glad I did.

Angie's Dad's Best Cabbage Coleslaw

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
This was REALLY good. I did, however, make a number of modifications. I used less onion (about 2/3 med. onion). I used rice vinager. I like my coleslaw a tad creamy so I used about 1/4 cup mayo and 1/4 cup veg oil (this actually reduces cals/ fat from original recipe). Also, I only used about 1/4 cup of sugar.

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
This recipe was perfectly spiced. I just made a few changes. I used 4 cups veggie broth and 2 cups water for a little extra flavor. Also added salt and pepper to taste. Mopped it up with warm pita bread and it made for a nice, hearty meal.

Cheesy Macaroni and Beef Casserole with Thyme

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
I really liked this recipe. It was very flavorful and hearty... makes great leftovers too. I made very few changes to the original recipe (unusual for me)... I just reduced the amount of cheese by 1/2 a cup. Next time I will double the amount of fresh thyme. Really good though!!!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
Great recipe... I used butter instead of shortening. I reduced the sugar to 1 cup and used natural peanut butter (less sugar) I also added dried cranberries to 1/2 the batch to add a little sweetness.

Basil Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: May 5, 2006
My husband loved this recipe. The only thing I did differently was to add some swiss cheese I had in the fridge. He asked me to make it every week. I had to tell him no though because I feared for his life (and mine) if he ate cream, butter, and cheese every week. Maybe next time I'll try half and half instead of heavy cream.

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2006
This was good... but I made a few changes. I cup up some celery and carrots in small cubes and cooked with the chicken. I also added one green onion (with top). Also, I put 2 cans of creamed corn instead of 1/2 of one.

Raita

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
This recipe was good after I changed several components. First I just used the full fat plain yogurt and left out the sour cream. Next, I use persian cucumbers so there is no need to seed. Also, it is best if you chop the tomato and cucumber into tiny, tiny peices rather than leaving large chunks. I leave out the garlic and 1/2 the amount of cumin. I also add some water to give it a thinner consistency which is closer to what you would get at an indian restaurant.
