Maple Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I used low-fat cream cheese with great success. I will also explore ways to minimize cracking (which is covered by sauce, which is nice) next time, but for a first-time effort, I was pleased. Ran out of graham cracker crumbs so substituted plain "vanilla" type cookies. Worked great.

Orange Pumpkin Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I don't really "appreciate" sweet, quick breads - but this one is a winner! I doubled the recipe and used three mandarine oranges (311 grams total). Excellent. It made one regular loaf as well as five "mini" loaves. I put chocolate chips in some and dried cranberries in others - very happy!

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2006
Excellent. I've made this recipe twice so far in one week, and both times I've used half whole wheat/half white flour with great success. The first time I rolled out the balls per instructions. The result was great - but I prefer a "breadier," thicker pita. So last night I used the same number of balls - just rolled them out only to the size that I desired. Fantastic! I also decided to roll them out and pop them right in the oven, without waiting the prescribed 30 minutes. Worked like a charm. Couldn't be more pleased. I'll try increasing the wheat flour next as another experiment.

Aunt Mary's Eggplant Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
I eliminated the olive oil, opting for non-stick spray and a non-stick pan. Used food processor to grate the eggplant (used the long, slender Japanese eggplants). Very pleased with the results. Will definitely make these again.

Irish Cream Truffle Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2005
Fantastic. Followed the directions exactly except left out the nuts. Makes a TON of very thick fudge. When I make it again, I'll either half the basic recipe (and leave the topping the same), or use a bigger pan.

Bread Machine Cardamom Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2005
Excellent bread. Only change I made was baked for 30 minutes instead of the 40-45 in the recipe as the top was already past a desirable browned point. I might add more cardamom next time if I intend to use it as a "sweet" bread. The way it is, it will be perfect for salads---or French toast, as noted in the recipe.

Vegetarian Four Cheese Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2004
Absolutely fantastic! I used 1/2 (250 g.) the ricotta; basil pesto,; 1 egg; 1 26-ounce (737 g) pre-made pasta sauce in place of the tomato sauce; and no-pre-cooking-required lasagna noodles. I cut the pan into 12 squares, and each 12th was a generous serving. I might eliminate the eggs entirely next time. I sprayed the eggplant slices with non-stick before grilling---worked great! I also cut the tomatoes into several thick slices instead of just in half. With my variations, ended up being 7 WW points for one slice (15 for two).

Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2004
Very nice. I cut the oil back to 1 Tbsp, and next time I'll do the same---but use a non-stick pan. I didn't have jalapenos or cilantro---turned out fantastic nonetheless. I followed another reviewer's suggestion to use minced garlic and fresh ginger in place of the ginger/garlic paste. Very pleased with the results.

Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2004
Don't be put off by the flavor of the dough. It was after a taste of the dough that my husband indicated extreme disappointment that I'd use butterscotch chips to make anything but Oatmeal Scotchies.... but he quickly changed his tune upon tasting the finished product. Excellent!

Sweet 'n' Hot Glazed Salmon

Reviewed: May 12, 2004
Made this first in 2004 (I always make notes on my recipes :) and followed the directions exactly --- and loved it. Just made it again last night. Rather than broil/baste, I decided to pour all the sauce on the filets (which I had in a small baking dish) and bake for about 20 minutes. Less fuss - and just as great.

Naan

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2004
Incredible! I was doubtful it would turn out, but we enjoy Indian food so much that I decided to give it a try. I followed another poster's suggestion to use the breadmaker on the dough setting up to the point where you roll the dough into uniformly sized balls and let them rise again. Worked perfectly. I surprise absolutely everyone when I tell them I made naan.....on the grill!!

Lemon Macaroon Tartlets

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2004
Not quite as lemony as I was hoping. Not one of those "can't-stop-eating-'em" desserts but quite good nonetheless. Next time I think I'll try white chocolate or regular chocolate pudding instead---I think they'd be a nice option in the macaroon "shells."
