Crisp Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2004
They're crispy and light! Delicious as is. I also tried them with 0.5 tsp cinnamon. Also good. Helps to press them flat with a wet fork before baking.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2004
Easy and quick! Good flavor, too. Despite a well-greased aluminum pan, it sticks a bit.

Oatmeal Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2004
hot and steamy rolls, but very moist dough, needing 1/2 to 1 cup additional flour. I used bread flour. Had a strong yeasty flavor that might benefit from the addition of herbs. But otherwise, a good bread to go along with traditional American cuisine.

Kulfi

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
Yummy. Being a food snob, I didn't like the idea of using "whipped topping," but it's great in this. I didn't have cardomom powder, but used cardomom seeds by simmering them along with a bit of cinnamon stick and a couple of cloves in the evaporated milk, then strained them out.

Cheesy Ranch New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
Simple and delicious. Kids like it. But difficult to find potatoes small enough to make these truly bite-size.

Caramel Popcorn

BEWARE! You'll not be able to stop eating these. Horrible for the waistline.

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
Worth the effort! I've made this several times, adding okra and rice on occasion. I've substitued canned tomatoes when I didn't have fresh. No change. If you're adding rice, reduce the flour some so you don't end up with a solid mass.

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
I fold these into appetizers (like little paper footballs). Always a big hit with the guests who can't believe I made these myself. They freeze well for months!

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2005
Delicious right out of the oven. I brushed on the soda/water solution and baked them on a Silpat mat. No sticking at all! It takes some patience to roll these out to the right thickness. I thought I had, but they puffed up in the oven and looked more like pretzel rolls. The thinner ones definitely had the better texture. I'd make these again.

Mandarin Almond Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2005
I've made this many times with whatever type of lettuce I have on hand (but never iceberg!) and it's always good. Advice on the sugared almonds: Let the sugar start carmelizing just a bit before you add the almonds. Adding the nuts too early can make them toast too brown before the sugar carmelizes. Adding the nuts too late will mean the sugar browns before the nuts get toasted. You'll have to experiment a little to get this just right, but it's worth it! I've use chopped walnuts, too. Very delicious! My guests loved it, too.

Deb's Scallops Florentine

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2005
A very classic flavor and look! But alas, it's a heart attack on a plate. I wouldn't have it too often, but as a special treat for guests, it truly looks nice. I'd like to sauce to be just a bit lighter.

Scallop Scampi

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2005
I used olive oil in place of margarine. It's a simple recipe that's quick and good to eat. It's worth making again.

Mandarin Orange Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2005
Being a kitchen snob, I didn't think I'd every use whipped topping, cake mix, or instant vanilla pudding, but this recipe has converted me to the conveniences of modern cooking! My kids loved it and frankly, I did, too. It sure beats making cakes from scratch.

Perfect Pressure Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2005
My family liked it a lot. I added a couple of potatoes and carrots halfway through the cook time so they wouldn't get too mushy. Worked fine. I also substituted 2 cups of water and a bouillon cube in place of the beef broth. With the extra vegies, it didn't seem too salty. It's a good and quick recipe for those days when there just isn't much time. All in all, a fine recipe for an American classic.

Michelle's Peanut Butter Marbled Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2005
I cheated and made these with a mix - using the added chips and the peanut butter and cream cheese filling. They came out great! Next time, I'll try using Michelle's complete recipe, but I have to admit that they were pretty darn good and quick with the mix.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2005
Made it with orange cauliflower. Very nice color! Freshly grated peccorino romano adds some nice zip. Maybe my head of cauliflower was too big because I didn't really taste the garlic. I doubled the cheese, but not the garlic. I'll try it with more garlic next time. Definitely a good recipe for guests.

Naan

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
Very tasty bread. Who doesn't like warm bread of any type? It's not quite like the naan in restaurants, but it's good and the kids love it. I rolled them out a thin as possible, but they still seem too thick for naan. It's a keeper recipe anyway.

Empanadas

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
The dough is wonderful! But it was really difficult to seal these up well. I had oozing jam everywhere. I didn't even put in that much based upon another's recommendation. Next time, maybe I'll try making these savory with a curry meat inside. I bet that would be wonderful!

Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2005
I used boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts (we're a dark meat family) and loved the tenderness of the chicken pieces. My kids didn't quite go for the curry flavor, but my husband and I thought it was quite good. . . .especially served up with some homemade naan.
