Chickpea and Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2005
Bismillahir Rahman ir Rahim This was pretty good. I reduced the water to half and served over rice. Next time I would throw in some cumin, but this definitely was super-quick.

Spicy Potatoes and Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2005
bismillahirrahmanirrahim excellent -- made this for a group of guys yesterday morning and everyone loved it, although i also made a lot of changes, adding muenster cheese, using butter instead of oil, adding milk to the eggs to make them fluffier, and using seasoned salt on the potatoes instead of the other spices (just chili powder in the eggs). i also thought i'd be a purist and fry the potatoes but it was taking SO long i had to take them out of the pan and microwave them -- but using the microwave makes this recipe so quick and so easy that i made it again for myself even though i was feeling extremely lazy; it's really that easy and good.

Migas

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2005
BismillahirRahmanirRahim This was great! I left out the onion and ham, and added some pepperjack cheese and salsa and a dash of chili powder and it was nuts. Tossing in a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies is even better than salsa, if you plan ahead or are the kind of person who happens to have that kind of thing laying around.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2005
BismillahirRahmanirRahim -- An hour was a bit much for my oven and I felt the chicken came out overcooked, but I was shocked at how overwhelmingly enthusiastically this recipe was received. People were GUSHING about it. Seriously, the guys were so happy I thought they might start speaking in tongues. It was super-easy to make. I didn't have cornstarch so I used flour, which I discovered made a huge difference the next time I tried this with the cornstarch -- with flour the sauce was much thicker, and I recommend flour over cornstarch. Anyway, scrumptuous and easy. Thanks!!!

African Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
I was really stressed out today because i wanted to make a chicken curry but none of the recipies on this site got consistent reviews. In the end I improvised, basically making this recipie with fresh ginger. It turned out fantastic -- but I agree with the other reviewer who said hers was good because she was a good cook. The trick is you can't work with this particular recipie like a robot -- think of it more like friendly advice than engineering specifications. If it doesn't taste good it means you aren't done yet!!! For me the key was getting the salt right and adding lots and lots of extra garlic (I had garlic powder but fresh would have been better). The only thing I'd do differently is that next time I'd throw in some potatoes. And start cooking earlier than I did today.

Chicken Shawarma

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2007
This was absolutely incredible! Used rice vinegar instead of malt and only marinated for 15 min or so, but the combination of the tangy chicken with the yogurt sauce was unbelievable. Reminded me so much of NYC except this was FRESH.

Zippy Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
I made a huge bowl of mashed potatoes as a side dish last night and used the extra for this tonight, and that along with frozen chopped veggies and pre-grated cheese helped make this genuinely quick and easy. I used ground turkey, substituted flour for cornflour which always works in a pinch, and used 2 bouillon cubes with 2 cups of water instead of the broth. As-is the recipe is pretty good, some changes make it quick and easy; still experimenting to make it fantastic.

Muesli

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2007
I had muesli in Austria and *loved* it. I make this recipe with honey instead of sugar, sliced almonds instead of the other nuts, and golden raisins and mix it with a little less than an equal part yogurt before I go to bed, then mix in milk or soy milk (and honey) in the morning. Sometimes fresh fruit but I actually like it better without! This is so healthy; I don't like oatmeal and am so happy to have a good breakfast alternative to sugary, processed cereals or fatty egg dishes.

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2007
This turned out great. I used a small can of tomato paste and two or three of water in place of soup, and fiddled with the spices since I didn't have garam masala, using some cumin and cinnamon, a little black pepper, cayenne pepper, dash of vinegar, couple tbsp honey, even a few saffron threads. Obviously I'm comfortable winging it. Next time I might try adding some cauliflower and carrots. I considered running to the store to get TOFU -- it would have gone beautifully in this.

Chicken Riggies I

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
I totally made this mine but here are some ideas you may like to use: instead of alfredo i used a cup and a half of lowfat milk and maybe a third cup fresh grated parmesan. Skipped onion mushroom and peppers because none around, so just used half a bag of frozen veggies. Garlic powder instead of garlic. In the end I added some black pepper and cumin to give it a little extra kick.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
I made this almost exactly according to the recipe and was really disappointed. Way too vinegary, but also kinda too sweet -- and you can't just throw a couple tablespoons of tamarind paste in a dish, it's supposed to be soaked in water and you only use the water. I used peanut oil and added chicken, no tofu. It was edible but I wasn't proud. I don't know how it could be improved and wouldn't make this recipe again.

Peanut-Tamarind Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
This turned out awesome, but I totally modified it almost beyond recognition based on what I had on hand. I omitted chile pepper and ginger, and substituted szechuan for hoisin, 2% milk for coconut milk, and garlic powder for fresh garlic. I used half the amount of peanut butter (smooth) and then threw in some crushed peanuts. It turned out awesome though!!!

Tzatziki Sauce (Yogurt and Cucumber Dip)

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
I was looking for a low-calorie alternative to mayo and this worked out great. I also did the coffee-filter thing and only drained an hour, plus omitted parsley and mint and it was still much tastier than the fat-free mayo they sell at the store.

Seafood Pasta Delight

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
This was super quick, easy and delicious. Next time I would add a lot more garlic and maybe even a tablespoon or two of fish oil. I just used mixed asian veggies I had on hand in the freezer, and chicken bouillon in place of wine and broth, but my bf loved it and it really was amazingly quick and easy. i omitted all oils and just sprayed the pan with cooking spray to make this a very low calorie dish. best recipe i've found for scallops yet.

Keligun Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I only had about a quarter cup of soy sauce so used that with the vinegar, about 1/2 c water, a few tbsp teriyaki sauce and a tblsp fish oil, a generous dash of powdered garlic, ginger and pepper. Cut chicken in pieces and cooked on the stovetop with the liquid, added about a tbsp of flour at the end to thicken. Then added sweetened coconut (forgot the lemon). It was intense but delicious -- it would have been great if we'd had jasmine rice to go with it to calm it down a bit. I probably won't make it again because coconut is so fattening, but it was quite delicious.

Cajun Seafood Pasta

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
We halved the pepper as others suggested, and cooked the seafood separately in 1 tbsp olive oil with 1 tbsp cajun seasoning and then added it at the end. It was still on the outer limits of spicy. We decided to splurge and use the heavy cream, but it was so rich I think we would have enjoyed it more if we'd used half heavy cream and half milk. It wasn't bad, but I doubt I'll make it again, which is too bad because it sounded really amazing!

Ma Ma's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
Very easy and yummy. Like others I used butter rather than shortening but I thought it was great. I also used whole wheat pastry flour and added 1 tbsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt (actually sea salt) as recommended. Didn't roll out the dough (lazy) but rolled into balls and pressed with bottom of sugared cup as recommended. Rock n roll.

Tamale Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
I agree that the consistency was a bit unusual, but thought it tasted great. Next time I would throw in some onion and garlic with the "meat" (I actually used a vegetarian meat substitute). Or maybe use shredded chicken instead -- that could help a lot with the consistency. The other flavor I think this was missing is sour cream! I am very sensitive to spicy but didn't think the jalapeno was too much at all. I will probably make it again for myself but am glad there were no kids around today, as I can't imagine they would have gone for something so unfamiliar.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
This was very good, but not quite as luxurious as I'd hoped. A similar recipe in one of my cookbooks adds 2 eggs and says they can be omitted but recommends increasing the cornstarch to 5 tbsp. I don't have a microwave where I'm staying so had to do it stovetop and that definitely was not a "hasty" way to do it. I will play with the recipe -- maybe try adding an egg next time, and a touch more cocoa for a really rich flavor -- and when I get it perfect will serve for guests with fresh raspberries on top for a very elegant dessert.

Mulligatawny Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
I made this into a basic lentil soup by omitting coconut milk, apple and tamarind (though it sounds amazing) and didn't puree. Added a pinch of saffron, fiddled a bit with spices. I'll definitely come back to make this closer to recipe (though I may omit lemon and sub 2% milk for coconut milk to keep fat down).
