Baked Eggplant with Cashews

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2006
I was skeptical, because 1/2 an hour in the oven didnt seem like enough time to cook everything, but it sounded good, and the other reviewers convinced me. It wasn't enough! After an hour (hour and a half?), we gave up. The bottom layer was soft, and cooked, the top was hard and raw...along with all the onions. If you attempt this, be sure to cook everything thoroughly, then put it in the oven to heat through. But I'm not sure it's worth the effort.

Colcannon

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
I was a bit scared of this, because although I had heard it was great and was very curious, it just seemed odd. Slimey cabbage mucking up mashed potatoes? However, I had nothing to fear, it was delicious. I used red cabbage as I had it on hand, and wow! The colors were crazy the night I made it, leftover seemed to intensify! (I'll try and post a photo.) Anyway, it's a flexible recipe, and I'm sure I'll be using it again and again.

Cholay (Curried Chickpeas)

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2005
Maybe I did something wrong, though I can't figure out what...even with all the spices, I found it really bland. Added some Chana Masala, though, and everything was yummy...

Crispy Turnip 'Fries'

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
Maybe I did something wrong, but these were nothing like fries. They were solid and almost juicy inside, and not crunchy outside. Almost roasted? I won't be repeating the recipe.

Spicy Yogurt Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
It does have just a bit of spice, as advertised. I used it on a broccoli-carrot slaw, and it was good, but really thick (I used greek yogurt). It is a good baseline, and there's plenty of room to spice it up more.

Jam Kolaches

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
The cookie part of this is terrific! I wanted to use up some jam (not a fan of it on toast), so I made these. They were really easy and quick, although I need to work on presentation. I'll make them again.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2005
I didn't care for this at all! It tasted like a nice, moist, and way too sweet cake. There wasn't enought zucchini to make it taste significantly like zucchini bread.

Greek Pasta Salad with Roasted Vegetables and Feta

Reviewed: May 22, 2005
I just wasn't impressed. It did inspire me to try some new combos--I kept thinking things like, "parmesan, not feta. Add some mushrooms, roast the garlic, lots more greens, olives!" But it just screamed out for so many changes. I didn't find a cohesive taste, the veggies were soggy the next day, and the feta just seemed terribly misplaced.

Messy Taco Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2004
Good, although I only used about half the dressing, and thought it was too much. I used 3/4 the cheese, and half the chips, as well, and thought they were fine. However, I didn't use meat. Next time, I'll probably try it with the Catalina dressing, or find out what my mom uses.

Garlic Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2004
Awesome basic recipe for the oven...I added salt, pepper, garlie powder, butter, and couldn't say no to just one!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
I didn't care for this. WAY too sweet for my taste (I did use red apples, but I cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup white and brown). It also left a lot of liquid behind. I don't think the water is necessary.

Pea 'n' Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Let me start by saying I probably should have known better than to make this. I don't eat a lot of mayo-based salads. And this was mayo-drenched! It also didn't have much stand-out flavor. I'll probably add a potato and some sriracha to soak up the mayo and give it some umph. Just not my thing.

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2005
Hmmm...after a day in the fridge, mine turned the most unappetizing deep grey color! Otherwise, it's good...different, but it'd make a great sandwich filling...not as crazy about it as a dip, as I'm used to, but not a total loss...it's similar to all other recipes I have, so it's probably just me!

Easy Fried Eggplant

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2004
Kind of plain on it's own, but a great base for eggplant parmesan. I froze these, and took out a few at a time for a quick meal--throw on a slice of mozzarella, and pour on some store-bought tomato sauce. Great!

Naan

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
I made this as written. I found it too sweet, so next time I will reduce the sugar. It seemed too dry with the amount of flour, but came out okay. I will probably reduce the flour a little next time, just to see. And, I will probably experiment with the baking soda suggestions, to see how that works.

Vegetable Lo Mein

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
Loved it, though I cut the honey in half, next time I'd omit it altogether. I'd also increase the cayenne, but that's just me.

Emily's Excellent Taco Casserole

Very American, and tasty, but not really my thing.

Summer Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2005
So...a couple changes: First, I only used one and a half onions, no butter, and mixed half a cup of extra sharp cheddar into the soup mixture. Also used low fat soup and sour cream, and fat free croutons. Topped it with hazelnut meal, since that's what I had. Given this, the recipe is tasty. It's a little odd looking and tastes very comforting, nothing fancy enough for guests, but I would make it again--which is always the ultimate test.

Barbecue Tofu Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2005
It's not bad--a great way to cook tofu, but I might try marinating it in the sauce for a few hours, first. Otherwise, the sauce was just overpowering...

Spinach Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2004
Yes, BLAND! I will not make this recipe again. I tried adding a sauce, but it was too greasy. Not inedible, but I'd rather spend my calories elsewhere.
