Cinnamon Cookies II

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2005
A very good cookie recipe. I replaced the white sugar with turbinado sugar and eliminated the molasses, and the result is even better than the original recipe. Much more cinnamony without that molasses taste.

Malooba

Reviewed: May 19, 2005
Wow is this ever good! I cheated and used a 10 pound turkey instead of a chicken (it's what I had) and doubled the rest of the ingredients, but it turned out delicious, probably better than with chicken.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2007
They were too sweet, not very flavourful, and stuck to the pan the first time I made them, so I made some changes to the recipe for the next batch. I reduced the white sugar to 1/3 cup and the butter to 5/8 cup, added 2 tablespoons of real maple syrup, omitted the vanilla, and doubled the amount of cinnamon. I also greased the baking pan well and baked the cookies at 350 degrees instead of 375. They came out wonderful!

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
An excellent recipe. I replaced the onions with 3 cloves garlic and it was still good. One minor quibble: it takes much, much longer to prepare this recipe than 30 minutes, since you have to let the quinoa cool after cooking. You should budget at least 3 hours, and preferably overnight.

Pumpkin Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
This worked well. I made my own pie crust (graham crackers - feh) and used homemade low-fat fromage blanc for the cream cheese and it still was flavourful and rich. Oh, and acorn squash for the pumpkin works well too - just bake it in halves, cool it, mash, and let sit overnight in the fridge in a cheesecloth-lined strainer. Handy when squash is dirt cheap!

Sweet Mustard Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
I made this with thighs. It turned out well, but I cut the butter waaaay down - one tablespoon of butter and one tablespoon of olive oil was more than enough. I also added some cayenne and a little bit of powdered ancho chili for flavour.

Swedish Cured Pork Loin

Reviewed: May 19, 2005
This was delicious! Not too sweet or too salty, and the flavour was out of this world. I wonder if previous reviewers remembered to completely rinse all the rub off the roast before baking, because that's the only way I can see the sugar or salt taste being strong enough to be disagreeable.

Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
I replaced the all-purpose and whole wheat flour with unbleached spelt flour. They turned out delicious and had perfect texture. Thank you for the recipe - it's going into the permanent collection!

Ash-e-jow (Iranian/Persian Barley Soup)

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
This was delicious! I don't know why I'm surprised - Persian food is always great - but wow! I would absolutely make this again! And it's perfect for a summer dinner.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
This is brilliant. I couldn't find leeks at a reasonable price ($5.29/lb is not reasonable) so I substituted garlic and celery, but even then it was delicious! Highly recommended.

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
I like this recipe, but I'd suggest using actual cheap fresh jalapeños rather than the massively, ridiculously mega-overpriced canned version. They're $3.29 for a tiny can here while fresh jalapenos are 49 cents a pound.

Jim's Pork Chorizo

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
Excellent once I realized the recipe called for American-style chili powder and not just ground chiles, and *Spanish* paprika instead of the normal Hungarian paprika. (We don't all live in the US, so specific instructions as to what kind of "chili powder" and "paprika" would have been nice - they do differ immensely from country to country).

Indian Spiced Rice

Reviewed: May 19, 2005
I replaced the lentils with quinoa and the peas with celery, and added 3 minced small green chilies. Very tasty!

Apple-Cran-Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 19, 2005
I increased the amount of cardamom to 1/2 tsp, replaced the cinnamon with 1/2 tsp allspice and 1/2 tsp nutmeg, added 1/2 cup extra flour, and let the mixture sit overnight in the fridge. (I added the extra flour because my homemade applesauce was a bit thin.) The cookies turned out very tasty and were a big hit. The cardamom really does make a difference; if you can't get it at your local supermarket, it can be ordered from online spice stores. It's really worth it. I'll probably make these again if I have kids coming over, but next time I'll chop the dried cherries and cranberries before adding them to make a more even mixture. I'll also bake the cookies at a slightly lower temperature for a longer period of time, since even with the extra flour they're still a bit soft.

Indian Naan II

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2005
These turned out quite well. The addition of yogurt to the mix gave the naans a tangy taste that other recipes don't have. I found that it was important to preheat the grill for at least 10 minutes before attempting to cook the breads, and not to use a silverstone-coated baking sheet (the intense heat may damage it). By the way, kalonji is known better in the West as nigella, but may also be found at German delis either as 'black caraway' or 'schwarzkummel', or in Jewish delis as 'charnushka'.

Baking Powder Biscuits II

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2006
These turned out quite nice - not flaky/greasy like southern US biscuits, but light and soft like Canadian biscuits. I ended up with 24 small biscuits.

Cajun Style Corn Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
I liked it, but not having a green and red bell pepper I used Hungarian and Anaheim peppers. I also replaced the water with whey because I had some to use up. Good stuff, though!
