Thai Charred Eggplant with Tofu

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
I made some changes (used 1 eggplant, no cilantro and less basil, fried the eggplant slices, sprinkled some soy sauce on the tofu, and used red peppers instead of chile). It was excellent and very flavourful. I served the dish with white basmati rice cooked in vegetable stock. Will definitly make it again!

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2007
Wonderful! I did half the recipe using a 3.5 oz bag of plain microwave popped corn and it was wonderful. It sounds tricky, but it's very easy.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
My husband loved it, I didn't use butter in the pie, and only used 1 cup of sugar. I used grandma's secret pie crust from allrecipes. I did make 4 little hole on the top crust before baking, because I was afraid it would be soggy if I didn't. Thanks!

Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch

Reviewed: May 30, 2006
I divided the recipe in 2, baked it in a 8*8 square dish, and added a bit of cinnamon to the topping. This aside, I didn't change a thing and my husband loved it! Thanks!

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
Delicious. I did skip the onions though, and layered the ingredients on a large serving plate. Thanks!

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
Great! I used red peppers instead of green, and basmati rice instead of arborio. Will certainly make it again. Thanks :)

Four Cheese Macaroni Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
Delicious and easy! I followed the exact recipe, but used fresh tomatoes instead of canned. I once even baked it on the (covered) gas grill outside, and it was great. Thanks!

Classic Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
Delicious corn. I used to make Amish Caramel Corn from this site, until I ran out of light corn syrup. This recipe used dark corn syrup so I tried it out, and it was great. I popped a generous 1/3 cup corn, and it was great. The liquid foams a bit in the oven, which really helps with coating the popcorn. Also, dark corn syrup doesn't have the high fructose syrup light corn syrup has.

Favorite Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2004
I won't rate because I made quite a few changes. First of all, I sauteed the onions with paprika and a crushed garlic clove in olive oil. After 10 minutes, I added them to the lentils and covered with water in a normal saucepan. I checked often to add more water, and simmered 15 minutes on low/med heat. Then I added the onion mix with 1 1/2 cup of water, & simmered 10 mn. I served with toasted bread and cubed cheddar. I didn't put any lemon.

Wilderness Place Lodge Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2005
This cookies are SO good. They are just perfect. Don't cook more than 12 mn. They will still be soft when out of the oven, but will become harder when cooling down. They don't spread a lot, so you can bake a lot at once.

Molten Chocolate Cakes With Sugar-Coated Raspberries

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
These cakes were delicious and easy to make. I made them for Valentine's day, and since I had already baked dinner, we didn't have to wait for the oven to warm up, so it was really fast! I baked them 10 mn, I think that next time I will bake them 2 mn more, making sure I wont overcook them...

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
Delicious, but it's more a cake than a brownie. My husband thought that it was too much choc. with the frosting, and that a cream cheese frosting would have been better. I froze half and we'll see if it's good after it's thawed. Thanks! UPDATE: I made it again and we could see the zucchini! I would suggest soaking the shredded zucchini in the oil first to get it really moist, and then continue with the recipe. It's the only thing different I did the first time...

Apple Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
My DH loved it! The only difference I made was to use brown sugar to coat the apples and half white half brown sugar in the batter. I also poured half the batter before adding the apples, and then the other half (instead of thirds). Thanks!

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
I cannot believe I did rate this recipe. Everyone loved it. My aunt made it with walnuts and she said it was delicious. I didn't change anything in the recipe, and it was great. My husband did ask for a little more cranberries next time though. I always wrap the springform pan in alum. paper and set it on a pan. I also found that putting a square of parchment paper at the bottom of the pan (bigger so that the edges are outside the pan in between the bottom and the round) prevent any leakage.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
They rock, what more can I say =) I used half normal olive oil half canola, because I dont buy light olive oil. Also, 1 cup nuts 1 cup cranberries. I kept them a bit longer in the oven to dry out, just with the heat off and the door slightly open. Delicious! I might try the version with orange extract too.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2005
Mmm... A very nice change from the basic/boring bean burrito! Will certainly make it again. Thank you for that different and tasty recipe! Changes: I saute the onions, and then blend everything (1 14oz can red beans 1 14 oz can sweet potatoes, rinsed). Top with cheese, roll in a tortilla, and lightly fry on both sides (or use no oil in a nonstick saucepan).

Olive and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
My husband and I thought it was absolutely delicious. I sauteed the zucchini with the mushrooms in olive oil, and added the garlic only when the veggies were almost ready so as to keep the flavor and not burn it. We also added a lot more feta, cut into small cubes (about 1-2 oz for half the recipe). Next time, we might add a diced fresh tomato. Thanks!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
I asked my husband how many stars I should give, and he said "as many as there are!". I used half brown half white sugar instead of all white. I made 12 cookies out of the whole batter, and they took 18 minutes to cook perfectly. Thank you!
