Iced Coffee Slush

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
WOW - this deserves ten stars. Here in Israel, all the cafes sell this amazing iced coffee that has a Slurpee consistency. For years I've been trying to replicate it at home, but with no success. With this recipe, I can do it. Make the coffee according to the directions, but cut the sugar to 1 c. Freeze. Half an hour before you need it, take it out of the freezer. Once it's softened just a tad, use a spoon or knife to break half of the mixture into chunks. Put them into a blender. Add 1 cup of milk and 2 heaping tablespoons chocolate milk powder (or sugar if you're a coffee purist). For an adult only crowd, you can use a good swig of chocolate and/or coffee liquor. Blend until no chunks remain. You will get the smoothest, frostiest, most incredible iced coffee that you can eat with a spoon. My entire family went nuts over this one!!! Thanks Iola - I'll be making this all summer.

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
I don't think I would call this neat (you should see my kids' clothing) but it sure is good. I used ground chicken, and instead of canned soup used 5 ounces of tomato paste and 5 ounces of water. I served it on buns and the kids gobbled it up.

Roasted Cinnamon Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2015
This was fabulous! I cut the maple syrup down to 2/3 cup - no more was needed - and rather than use chili peppers, which I felt would be too hot for the kids, I used a shake of red pepper flakes. This came out super flavorful, and created lot of gravy, which went wonderfully over couscous.

Jenn's Out Of This World Spaghetti and Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
This is excellent - with a few changes. 1. Cut the tomato paste to two cans (12 ounces) 2. Use 2 cups of liquid, substituting some of the water with wine (I used 1/2 c. wine, 1 1/2 c. water) 3. cut the sugar to just 2 T. 4. add 1 tsp each of seasoned salt and Cajun. With these changes, this was a hit. For the meatballs I used ground chicken and omitted the cheese. I served them over rice. The kids wanted triples.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Excellent - light and fluffy. To make this non-dairy, I used margarine instead of butter and soy milk instead of regular. We made cupcakes and the tops came out deliciously crusty while the inside was so soft. A double recipe made 24 cupcakes.

Orzo with Mushrooms and Walnuts

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
This orzo is excellent - easy yet elegant. It can be a tad bland though, so I was heavy-handed with the salt, and also added garlic powder and parsley. I over-toasted the walnuts by mistake (about 15 minutes) and they were actually wonderfully crunchy.

Garlic and Herb Pull Apart Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2015
AMAZING!! This bread is so incredible — moist, fragrant, soft, and so flavorful. I didn't have biscuit dough so I used fresh bread dough (challah dough to be exact). We aren't rosemary fans, so I subbed oregano. And to keep it dairy free I used olive oil instead of butter. I served it with a big Greek salad and my entire family was raving.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2015
Wow - I see why this has so many great reviews. It's fabulous. I sauteed the onion (and two heads of garlic) until translucent, then added ground chicken (healthier than meat, and with the sauce, no one noticed) and red pepper, then the seasoning. It was as easy as it was tasty.

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
Fantastic! My husband (who dislikes mustard), my kids and my guests were wild over this. Makes far too much dressing however, cut the amounts.

Old Fashioned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
Double the spices and then this is really good. I used pickles instead of celery and omitted the onion. A real classic.

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Fabulous!! We already had a favorite recipe (Dad's whole grain pancakes - also from this site) but I wanted to try something new. I think these were even better. I used 3 T. oil instead of the butter, and used milk miked with 1 T. vinegar per cup for the buttermilk. The kids loved these.

Grandad's Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2015
Wow! These are great. I make pancakes every week and have tried many recipes on this site. This is one of the best yet! Because people complained of the pancakes being too liquidy, I used a bit less milk. This recipe yields very little; I got only 7 smallish pancakes from a single recipe - which is a lot less than 4 servings in this house particularly with pancaked so delicious.

Kristen's Awesome Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
Perfect texture - crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside. I used oil (a bit more than 1/2 a cup) instead of shortening, threw in about 1/2 cup of raisins, and baked them as bars. My family loved them, particularly fresh from the over with cold milk.

Roasted Roma Tomatoes and Garlic

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2013
Yum! These are so easy and so delicious. I served it as a side dish with chicken and rice and it was just the burst of color and flavor we needed. I used crushed garlic which I rubbed into the tomatoes, and dried basil.

Jimmbo's Garlic Knots

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
Whoa!! These things are out of this world! I used challah dough (any homemade white bread dough will do). I put all the ingredients (except for the cheese because I wanted this dairy free) in a big bowl and rolled the hot rolls around the bowl. Then I set them on a tray to dry. I served this with a big Greek salad and my family was raving!

Fabulous Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
I had some cabbage that I needed to use up and decided to try this. Wow! What a hit. The kids all had seconds and would have thirds if I had had more. I used canola oil and sauteed an onion first before adding the broth and cabbage. Thanks for a winner.

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
Yum! This pie was fabulous. I made it in a cookie crumb crust. Like others, I used a can of cocoanut milk as part of the 3 cups of liquid, and used soy milk for the remainder. I also used 3 egg yolks instead of two eggs, and replaced half the flour with cornstarch. My family loved it!

Pesto Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
YUM!!!! We keep kosher so the shrimp was out. And since people complained that the tomatoes made things too watery, I swapped them with broccoli. I cooked the pasta, then used 1 T. olive oil (no more is needed) to saute the onion, then added the mushrooms, garlic, and broccoli. In another pot, I used 1/4 cup butter (not half a cup) and flour to make a roux, added the milk and spices, let it thicken, then added in pesto and cheese. Once I had a creamy sauce (it took a little more than 4 minutes), I stirred in the veggies and poured the sauce over the pasta. It tasted like a high-end restaurant dish!
