Spice Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
These were yummy. They are light and fluffy inside, crispy outside- almost like cake doughnut holes, but not quite. Very easy, minimal mess. I gently rolled the dough between my palms to give them better texture, and they still puffed up beautifully and held together nicely. Next time I will use a little less mace since it tends to be overpowering. The sugar coating would make these REALLY delicious with less cinnamon and a little cardamom added to it.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
Excellent. It turned out just as I was hoping it would. I used linguine, left out the chopped peanuts, and topped it with Asian Tuna Patties. The noodles tasted like they came from a restaurant. Quick, easy and cheap.

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
We loved this! I ommitted the cornmeal and black pepper, and added ground ginger and a tsp of chili sauce. I also added an extra egg white and formed much smaller patties, so that I got about 14 from the recipe. I took other suggestions and served with Amy's Peanut Butter Noodles. Delish.

Cranberry Puffs

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
This is a great recipe. I made it for Thanksgiving, and we loved it. The flavor combination is so interesting. Next time I make this I will add more cranberries, and might bake them in puff pastry instead so they don't have to be served immediately.

Orange-Chip Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2006
This is a nice, light bread. This is a large recipe, so I halved it and baked it in an 8x8 pan. 25 minutes was perfect. I didn't have buttermilk so I soured milk with orange juice concentrate. Next time I make this I will add orange extract to the bread and glaze to give it more of an orange flavor. Other than that, this was a great recipe.

BBQ Tuna Fritters

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
Cool recipe. I used what I had on hand so no green onion, hot sauce or savory- instead chopped yellow onion, garlic, and thyme. An extra egg white helped the cakes stick together perfectly. This recipe is very variable, cheap, and easy to make.

Buckeye Balls II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
Mmmmmmmm! I took another cook's suggestion and added 2/3 c. Rice Crispies. I used over a pound of chocolate, half semi-sweet and half milk. The filling needed about 2 1/2 c. sugar. Then, I couldn't get the buckeyes to come out looking quite the way I wanted, so after the first dip dried I coated the tops. They came out looking phenomenal and I ended up with about 80. Time consuming but worth it.

Oreo™ Cookie Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
Yummy, easy and pretty, but a little expensive. I made mine like the pic and sprinkled with red and green sugar to go with my Christmas tins. I don't mind the crumbs mixed in, it looks just like cookies and cream should look.

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
Yummy. I creamed vanilla with the butter. These cookies are pretty fragile so I let them cool on the sheet. They were better the next day after they had time to set.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
Easy truffle recipe. I also cut the sugar and chocolate down to two cups each, and they came out great. I used vanilla, brandy, orange, and almond extracts and put them in bon bon cups to go with my Christmas cookies.

Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
I added soaked raisins, nutmeg and cinnamon to the pudding, and brandy extract to the sauce. I used about 3/4 loaf of fresh french bread and split the pudding into two smaller dishes, and it was perfect- not soggy at all, just soft. The end product was DELICIOUS, warm and comforting. I will definitely be making this again.

Lubia Polo (Green Bean Rice)

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2005
This is a great recipe. I substituted turmeric for the curry and used red pepper flakes instead of the pepper for spice and added garlic with the onion. This recipe makes A LOT of food, which is good because it goes fast. Edit: Don't skip the tadiq (the fried rice at the bottom). That's what we Persians fight over!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2005
I used this recipe to make muffins, adding vanilla, pumpkin pie spice and baking powder. They came out great and disappeared fast. This is a very versatile recipe- you can add so many different ingredients to jazz it up.
