Paneer Makhani

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
This is my first time cooking Indian food. I made homemade paneer last night. I chose this recipe to use the paneer. I was really impressed with how fresh and delicious this recipe is. The ginger and lemon make it very special. I also like that it didn't need salt. I substituted whole milk for half and half. It was still very delicious. I plan to make this again soon! Note: I've made this two more times since my initial review. It's become one of our favorite recipes. I can't eat half and half in more than very small quantities. (Oddly something in it hurts my stomach.) For this recipe the solution that I've devised is using skim milk or water to make the gravy. At the end I add a small amount of Nestle Media Crema (shelf stable cream that is inexpensive and packaged in small quantities). It tasted good with milk but is much better with even a small amount of cream.

Cauliflower and Tofu Masala

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
This is a very good dish. I used only 2 serranos and it was plenty hot for us. We can't eat large quantities of rich dairy. I used skim milk and added a few tablespoons of Nestle Media Crema (shelf stable cream). Thanks for sharing this recipe we enjoyed eating this!

Indian Eggplant - Bhurtha

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
When I first made this dish I thought it was ok but wasn't jazzed about it. My better half came home late so the dish sat in the fridge for a few hours. When I reheated the dish and served it with chappatis I found I liked it much more. He liked it as well. He thought the tomatoes made it quite good. Thanks to the author for sharing.

Raspberry Oat Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
I can only speak to the crumble part since I made my own apricot filling (1 can drained apricots mashed and cooked with 1/4 c. apricot preserves and 1 T. sugar). I liked this recipe a lot. I added 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon, substituted 1/2 c. whole wheat flour for 1/2 c. of the all purpose flour and omitted the salt. I baked them in a glass pan for 30 minutes at 375. The cookies were delicious. I will definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

World's Best Oreo® Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
This didn't turn out well for me. I haven't made fudge in a long time. I've only made it a few times. But I've never had a marshmallow fudge not turn out. Still, I'm sure my lack of expertise in fudge making is to blame for this recipe's failure. It came out a little soft. My boyfriend and I both thought it had way too much butter. It made it seem a bit imbalanced. Like it was too rich in a bad way. I also made the mistake of using salted butter. The oreo and vanilla flavors worked well though. I would try this again with a recipe using less butter.

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
This is a delicious, fun and easy candy to make. It smells great when it's cooking and tastes even better when it's done. We're sending this candy to relatives this year for Christmas. I used white bark instead of chocolate and mixed butter and margarine in some of the batches. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2012
I made 3/4 of the recipe and used a can of cherry pie filling (in a large glass pie plate) for cherry cobbler. I thought it was a bit too buttery. My boyfriend loved it! I made the recipe the same way again today for him. Thanks for sharing. :)

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
This is a great sauce. We eat mostly vegetarian. I made this sauce to use with broccoli and seitan in a stir fry. It's really yummy. I added quite a bit more garlic, ginger and green onion to suit our taste. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe.

Lavash Cracker Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
I enjoyed making this. We all enjoyed eating it. The bread has a delightful crunch. Mine didn't look like the picture but it was still quite good. It's a tiny bit tedious to make. But I probably will make it again because it's yummy. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
This is the first time I have ever made falafel with canned chick peas. We really didn't care for it. Falafel made with soaked dried chickpeas are crunchy around the edges and soft in the middle. These were just soft. The flavor was decent but the texture really fell short. I tried this recipe because grinding chickpeas in my 3 cup capacity chopper isn't too fun lol. But after eating "real" falafel we just can't make it this way. This is better than using a dry mix though. Thanks for sharing.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
After trying this recipe I stopped buying pancake mix. These taste better than pancakes made from mix, are just as easy to make and are more economical. Thanks for sharing it.

Danish Christmas Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
I've never had hot cabbage with sugar and vinegar. This was also the first time I've ever eaten red cabbage cooked. It was delicious! This dish is good hot or cold! It's simple but is nicely crisp and flavorful. We served it with homemade macaroni and cheese. It was a great dinner. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Sweet and Sour Sauce I

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
We eat sweet and sour sauce over tofu with vegetables a lot. I like to try new sweet and sour sauces. We had this one tonight. This is a good one. It's a little plain. Simplicity is a good thing in this case though. I made a double batch and refrigerated more than half. We look forward to having it again soon. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
This recipe had way too much salt for me. Half a teaspoon per piece of fish is just way too much for my household. It says four salmon fillets but doesn't say what size. I used quarter pound fillets. Maybe that was the problem. The salt really obscured the flavor of the fish. I'd try this again but with much less salt, like 1 tsp. As they say, you can always add salt but once you've ruined your dish you can't take it away.

These taste exactly the way snickerdoodles should. I found the dough didn't need the entire amount of flour. Thanks for sharing a yummy recipe.
