Babi's Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
As usual I did my share of substitutions for what I had on hand. Lime for lemon, dried parsley for fresh, cumin for coriander, and Equal for brown sugar. I was happy to put to use the mint growing in the yard. Bean salad of any variety is great in the summer!

Leftover Ham and Vegetable Medley

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2005
I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. It ended up disappearing so it must have been good. A great way to use up the leftover ham and get the family to eat more veggies. I plan on making it again.

Instead of tossing some stale hamburger buns, I decided to turn them into croutons. I knew they would be easy to make but rarely have taken the time. It is so easy to just log on to All Recipes and get a quick recipe and all the advice that goes with other reviews. Thank you for providing this service. Good croutons by the way and no more wasted bread. :-)

Drunk German

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2004
Jagermeister, meaning hunt master is a German bitter liqueur. Dating from the seventh century it is made of a complex blend of 56 herbs, fruits and spices. In my study of German, this was enjoyable research. I had never heard of this liqueur but it was easy to find. Very relaxing beverage. I plan on sharing this with others.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2004
Lots to read on this one! Here's a review of the reviews. Use fresh lemon juice. Save bean liquid if thinning necessary. Some like less Tahini - 2T works. Cumin, tobasco or red pepper adds flavor. Roasting the garlic mellows it. Some add more cloves. Make it the night before serving so all the flavors meld. Indian or pita bread brushed w/olive oil, topped w/parmesan cheese, toasted in the oven and cut in wedges works well for dipping as does bagel and other chips, or crackers. Tahini can be hard to find - some grocers carry it on the peanut butter aisle. I go to a fun health food store called Manna Mills that carries it. Hummus is heart healthy and earth friendly. I disliked chickpeas as a child & recently learned to enjoy them (read the classic 'The Yearling').

German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2004
Authentic German flavor. I substituted red onion which I briefly cooked before adding. Agree that potato salad with mayo is not as good as this recipe. Deutsch Kartoffel Salat - sehr gut.

Mini Parmesan Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2004
Use the same recipe but a little less liquid and make drop scones (like the previous reviewer also) – it’s less work. Self-rising flour was not on my shelf so I looked in a cookbook for another scone recipe – it required 2t. baking powder so that is what I used before looking at the previous reviews on this recipe. When I bake these again I’ll use 3t. baking powder and more parmesan. Sprinkling a bit of the cheese on top sounds like a good idea too. We thought the salt was just right but I used kosher salt and quality parmesan - don't know if that made the difference.

German Cut-Out Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2004
I needed a cut-out cookie recipe and this one caught my eye since I am learning a little German too. Most cut-out cookie dough requires refrigeration but this one doesn't. The brown sugar gives them good flavor and texture. For Easter we made doves, angels and crosses. Excellent.
