Amish Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
I have a Zojirushi BBCCX20. I'm not very familiar with it yet so I didn't stop the cycle. I used the BASIC setting and LIGHT for the crust. I did not think this was going to work because I peaked through the machine's window several times and noticed that the dough looked very sticky. I let it go all the way and was pleasently surprised by the results. The crust was a tad crispy on the sides but not on the top, the inside of the bread is soft and delicious. I cut one slice to check on the bread and see if I could serve it with dinner and found myself slicing more and more... you know... to double and triple check it was safe to serve to others :o) I'll be making this one often.

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
I substituted cranberries for the raisins and skipped the almonds because I didn't have any. Would have loved it with the almonds too. I chopped the broccoli quite small and replaced some of the mayo with sour cream to make it taste lighter. Very good!

Rolled Flank Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
Great flavor and presentation. I had the flank steak butterflied by my butcher. I used all the ingredients listed and agree that bacon can be either reduced or eliminated. I used silicone bands to hold the meat together. One hour baking time gave me a nice steak that was cooked to medium in the middle.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
I skipped the salt on the marinade and only used 1 tsp of salt on the sauce. It was perfect. I've never had anything like this before and I'm in love!! Great stuff!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
Pretty decent considering the ease of this chili. It was missing salt though. Once I added about 2 tsp of salt it tasted better but not quite 5 stars. Served with tortilla chips, cornbread, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese.

Dessert Crepes

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
I really liked this crepe recipe because of it's consistency. It was easier to "spread" on the pan than other recipes I've used and it provides a larger batch which is great for me because I often go without any (after everyone wants seconds). I like my other recipes very much but this might be the one I do more often.

Cream Cheese Kolacky

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
I leave the butter and cream cheese out on my counter until they reach room temperature and then mix them up in a bowl with my hands (clean, of course), I then add the flour and also use my hands to blend it in. Instead of flouring my work surface, I use confectoner's sugar. I also add it to the dough if it is too sticky. Instead of cutting squares or rectangles, I use a round cookie cutter (an upside down cup or glass works well too) and spread the filling along the middle (the invisible diameter line) then bring both sides to the center to meet. It is not quite the tradional shape but it is very similar and easier to me than trying to cut squares that are all the same size. My favorite filling to use is the Solo brand apricot cake and pastry filling. They have a variety of flavors like strawberry, poppyseed, raspberry, blueberry, and nut fillings. Solo has the perfect consistency for kolacky fillings. After the kolachys cool down I sift confectioner's sugar on top.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
Excellent! I decided to use 2 (28oz) cans of crushed tomatoes rather than whole and more parmesan after reading the reviews. Very yummy!

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
Very tasty stuff! It's a little bit too sweet and it didn't quite set the way I was expecting but it is definitely worth trying again with less sugar and a longer bake time.

Authentic Enchiladas Verdes

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
The salsa verde is excellent!! (and so very easy to prepare). I boiled all 5 peppers but added only three to check on the heat and it was just perfect for me. My only issue was with the chicken. It wasn't very flavorful as is. Consider adding some cumin or other seasonings as you please. Otherwise, it will rely A LOT on whatever else you are serving the enchiladas with. I served them with pico de gallo, diced avocado, and sour cream on top. Very yummy.

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I made this exactly as written and it was DELICIOUS!! Not everybody likes cranberries because they are tart so consider that before making it. If the cranberries are an issue I'm sure blueberries would ROCK!! I will definitely try this cake with other berries in the near future. This cake is perfect!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
The taste of the condensed golden mushroom soup made it taste fake and artificial. Good if the only thing you want is to mitigate your hunger.

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
They lacked flavor but were moist. Cooking time needs to be considerably longer.

Horchata de Arroz (Rice Drink)

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
Hola a todos!! I submitted this recipe. Yes, Horchata is originally a Mexican drink. I'm PuertoRican, not the drink. I can't find where it says otherwise but apparently someone must have made a mistake. Talking about mistakes, Allrecipes edited the recipe I submitted and it doesn't quite makes sense the way it is written now. The amounts listed in the ingredients are right but they are wrong under the directions. Dilute the evaporated milk with the water and follow the idea... Sorry about that. I'll try to contact them about it. Anyways, enjoy the drink!!

It was missing something... not sure what. It was enjoyable but not "all that".

Apricot Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
This was edible but not great. I prepared the dish exactly as written. The flavor was too weird and artificial. The flavor basically gave away that I was feeling lazy that day and wanted to whip something up real quick to get it over with. Not good.

Seared Ahi Tuna Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
We loved this tuna. I had two frozen, individually wrapped ahi tuna steaks that I defrosted in the fridge overnight (what I'm trying to say is that the quality of my ahi tuna was not the best). Regardless, the flavor was amazing. I did not expect these results with such few and basic ingredients. I cooked my filets through because of the quality but I was still very happy with them. I used coarse ground black peppercorns instead of whole and it was great! Will definitely make again and serve to company.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
Only rice I had was medium grain but it worked very well. I liked this rice better than the rice I get at mexican restaurants. It was definitely more flavorful without taking away from the rest of the dish.
