Summerly Squash

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
Terrific! I didn't use the bay leaf because I fogot to, and used lots of fresh basil instead of dried. Perfect! Nothing beats the old tomato-garlic-basil combo. Very nice, highly recommended.

California Style Israeli Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
The taste was good, but as an Israeli girl I must say- NOT very authentic! We don't even have jicama in Israel! Let alone English cucumbers! The usual salad spices are black pepper, salt, lots of freshly squeezed lemon juice, and maybe chopped green onion or parsley. I recomment adding a couple of grated carrots.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
Substituted cranberries for blueberries. Came out very butter-flavored, that's what i didn't like about it. The cake itself is fine, moist and nice. Apart from the cranberries, it has a very plain, almost childish flavor (of butter!). The pecan and cinnamon mixture blended too much with the cake batter, so it didn't stand out and give a "kick" to the cake. All in all, nothing to write home about.

Chocolate Cut Out Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2006
These were nice enough for 5 year-old birthday party. They're easy to roll and cut, the flavor is very agreeable. Nothing gourmet about it, though, so will stick to making cute chocolate ducks for kids.

Great Nana's Secret Ingredient Date Nut Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2006
The cake was extremely temperamental. It seemed like there was too much liquid to be absorbed, so instead of using the whole 1 3/4 cups of coffee, only used one. It was still very liquidy. Instead of baking it for an hour, I soon realized the cakes were browning way too fast, and had to shorten the time to 40 minutes, at 150 C. The taste was similar to the tradiotional Jewish honey-cake. Since I don't like that cake, I didn't like this cake either. I presume date-lovers will love it, since I was very moist and sweet, but overall- I wouldn't make it again.

Chocolate Revel Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
These were quite nice. I thought they were pretty bland, though my mom and her friends thought they were awesome. I think the 9X13 pan is too small, and the bottom layer of the dough came out too thick for my liking.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
GREAT! Left out the white sugar the second time I baked them (exactly one day after the first batch), because I thought they were a little too sweet. A winner.

Mushroom Soup Without Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
Made this soup with plenty of variation... Didn't have leeks so used red onions instead. Also didn't have carrots, so replaced them with colorabi. Didn't use thyme, either. Used portabella and forest mushrooms, not button. Came out GREAT! Served it with wild rice, as recommended. Was really wonderful, full of flavor like no other soup. Great for weight watchers who're looking fora light, cream-less mushroom soup.

Apricot-Coconut Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
I got some very ambivalent reviews for this recipe... Some loved it, others hated it. Personally, I found the flavor of the coconut combined with the apricots and walnuts too sickeningly sweet and unpleasant. Also, the SUPER crunchy crust was in contrast with the soft, mushy filling wasn't pleasant. Will definitely not make this again.

Banana Oatmeal Crumb Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2005
The cake is great! I used a bigger baking pan so shortened the baking time. Also, I used 3 large bananas and will use 4-5 next time. Other than that, people told me it was the best cake they had ever eaten!
