Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
Very nice. Used a flaky pie crust (from this website), think will use a smooth pie crust next time. Pretty easy recipe, needs cinnamon and more spices next time, but will make this again for sure.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
As delicious as it is easy. That is, VERY. SO simple and quick, and the taste is amazing! Followed the recipe and didn't add the other user's suggestions, came out beautiful.

Moussaka

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Good. No need to add an egg to the beef mixture, for sure. Red wine- very important, for too much tomato flavor causes the meat part to taste more like bolognese than moussaka. Loved the bechamel sauce, will definitely make this again with lots more of the spices (cinnamon and nutmeg).

Washabinaros Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
Very good recipe! Unfortunately, didn't have a lot of the ingredients here in Israel, so I made this one with plenty of changes, e.g. only 1 can of red beans instead of 3 cans kidney beans. Couldn't find wasabi- though next time I'll make sure I have since I bet this makes up the whole dish- nor any of the fresh chili peppers, so used only chili powder and black pepper. Didn't use beef broth but increased the amount of beer... All in all, loved it, family loved it, will definitely make this again and I think it's a good recipe to experiment with. Thanks!

Texas Sheet Cake VI

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
I think there's a very big palate difference between the states and Israel, for there is not other way to explain why this is rated 5 stars and I thought it was awful. The frosting is gritty and feels artificial, and the cake itself tastes like imitation chocolate cake. Will not make this again.

Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
Very good recipe. I halved the recipe, and therefore shortened the baking time by half an hour. If I ever half it again (which I won't, because it's a great recipe and I would want to make a big portion), I would decrease it by a further half an hour, just so it would stay moist. It tasted very good and homey, and I would definitely make this again and again. Unlike another user, I didn't find this time consuming cooking-wise, it was pretty simple. I made it for dinner with my boyfriend, and when he came back for seconds, the portion was bigger than the first one! We also drank the wine I used for the cooking. I highly recommend this, and thank you for sharing!

Not worth the effort of making them.

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
Taste-wise, pretty good. Didn't like the coffee flavor so will not use that again. But I was very disappointed and felt kind of tricked- this is a BROWNIES batter, no matter how you shape it. So if you like your brownies cookie-shaped, go ahead. But to me, these are not real cookies.

Feta and Olive Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
Very good meatballs. Forgot to buy olives and didn't have italian seasoning (they don't stock that in Israel), so didn't use these ingredients. However, I did add some fresh chopped basil. I think two eggs are a bit too much, so next time I'll use only one. Also, used both ground turkey and ground beef. Finally, I baked it in the over and it came out very good! Loved the idea of the feta cheese. Will definitely do this again, this time will try to remember to buy olives.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2007
For people not familiar with ginger cookies (like Israelis, for example), this was a very strange experience. Their texture is good, they're interesting, but they didn't wow us.

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I only gave this recipe four stars and not five because I think the while sugar can be omitted. It was too sweet for both my mother's and my liking. But other than that, this is amazing! So unbelievably easy to make, and the end result is delicious. Great recipe.

Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
Thinking I knew better, I didn't space the cookies enough. SPACE THEM! Other than that, they're great. Israel's supermarkets do not offer corn syrup, so I used honey instead. Thought the orange peel really added something extra. V. good recipe.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
Everyone said it was very good. This was my first lasagna after 4 years of not eating meat, so I don't really have something to compare it to, but I liked it a lot. However, since I live in Israel and Italian sausage isn't readily available, I used a French sausage, diced. Next time I'll chop it maybe...

Glazed Apple Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
They taste great, but I think I must have under-baked them, because they're way too soft. I also didn't glaze them because I have frosting of all kinds. They're very well spiced, warm and tasty.

Ali's Greek Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2006
Great recipe. I followed it exactly, apart from the tortellini pasta. My supermarket didn't offer them, so I used raviolli instead. Incredible! Great summer salad.

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
Tastes good and homey. I substituted vegetable oil for butter, used more honey instead of sugar, and subbed 1 cup each of raising and almonds/walnuts for chocolate chips. I also used half the amount of flour lister, and processed some 2-3 cups of branflakes and quaker squars in the blender, instead of some of the oatmeal. All in all, turned out more like dense oatmeal cookies, rather than granola bars. Still good though, even if it's too sweet and heavy for my idea of a bar. Good recipe, will make it again with some more alterations.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2006
VERY good! The batter was extremely liquidy, I thought I may have not put enough flour. But it baked just fine into a lovely, moist, flavorful loaf of pumpkin bread. All the spices really add flavor. It reminds me of our old house keeper's zuccini patties, because of the sweet spices and veggie combo. In short: delicious!

Vegan Split Pea Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
This is EXCELLENT! Tons of flavor. However, after 3 hours of cooking the split peas were still not tender enough. So will add more water and continue to cook it tomorrow morning. Otherwise, this is great! Thanks for sharing.
