Greek Salad III

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
Wow...simple, easy, yummy. Normally we order Greek salad, this was my first time making it. I added a slightly bit more lemon juice and red wine vinegar... and we used kalamata olives which we had on hand. I also added a few leaves of romaine that we wanted to use up. So simple and yummy. Great recipe. Don't forget to add salt and pepper to your dressing...and taste it first. Makes all of the difference. :)

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
This was awesome. I used the suggestion of the chicken bouillion cube and cumin. Great, fast, and easy. You can also add cooked pasta and a garlicy vinegar tomato sauce for the Egyptian dish koshary.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
Absolutely delicious... made this with leftover rotisserie chicken and croissant dough (Pillsbury) as a top. Followed everything else almost exactly, although I did sautee the celery w/ the onions in the butter (by mistake--but it was a good mistake.) I threw the chopped up leftover chicken into the broth cooking the carrots/peas near the end to warm it up. Really good. Baked it at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. Best chicken pot pie I've ever had.

Applesauce Doughnuts

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
These were so easy and so delicious. We put cinnamon sugar in a brown paper bag, and the kids had great fun shaking the donuts as they came out.

Seven Minute Frosting I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
I wasn't sure if two egg whites would give me enough frosting for a 9 x 13 cake. It gave me plenty--plus left overs. This was an easy, good frosting--which is not too sweet. The only thing I'd do differently is start with 1/2 tsp of vanilla first, as with a full teaspoon it tasted a bit to alcohol-y from the extract. This is not as sweet as other 7-minute frostings, which was a good pairing with my super sweet, rich strawberry cake. I'll definitely make this again. It's great as it doesn't require confectioner's sugar, which I usually don't have on hand.

Strawberry Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
Good, but not as great as I expected from all the reviews. I followed the directions exactly--although used a different frosting (seven minute frosting). I wonder if the cake really needs 4 eggs and 1 cup of oil as well--seemed a bit excessive. Still, it came out of the pan easily for decorating. Not sure I'd make it again though.

The Original Donair From the East Coast of Canada

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
I've never been to Halifax, but I have to say, this was mighty tasty. I was craving Turkish Doner...and used the meat recipe to satisfy that craving. Would use 1/2 the cayenne next time--but other than that, great. Didn't have any evap. milk--so made tzatziki sauce. So good and easy. A lot healthier too than typical doner, as I used 93% lean ground beef. Thanks!

White Texas Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
This was incredible. I followed the recipe almost exactly. The only differences were that I added 1 tsp of almond extract to the frosting, and also mixed in toasted almonds and coconut rather than pecans. This is such a wonderful, moist cake--incredible. I will definitely be making this again and again. Kids loved it too!

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
This was delicious. I followed the recipe as written, except that I didn't have any pumpkin pie spice so just used cinnamon. I used the Heart-Smart Bisquick. I don't own a crock-pot, so I baked the pudding in the oven at 350 for about an hour. I put it in a Pyrex bowl sprayed with Pam...and put that in a water bath. Worked great. Tastes like pumpkin pie without the crust. Served it with whipped cream. Pudding was gobbled up that same day.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
These were easy and yummy. I didn't have any quick-cooking oats, so used old fashioned and they still turned out great. My guess is that they were more chewy because of the old fashioned oats. I soaked the oats 15 minutes and followed the recipe except for the fact I added a splash of vanilla to the oatmeal/milk/egg/oil mixture (because I do this with all baked goods.) I also left off the brown sugar topping to save some calories. Delicious. My kids loved them as well.

Applesauce Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
Absolutely delicious. I followed the recipe exactly except I added an egg by mistake and purposely added a tsp of vanilla extract instead of the cloves. I dusted the top with powdered sugar as another reviewer suggested. This cake didn't last one night. My husband ate more than half, and myself and the kids finished it off. So moist and delicious. Heck, even the batter tasted great. :)

Aggression ( Oatmeal ) Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
These were super easy, super yummy. I took the recipe down to 15 servings (1 cup oats, 1/2 cup everything else.) and added a splash of vanilla. At first, I had the kids mix them in a ziploc baggie--but I ended up having to put the stuff in a bowl to get it really mixed well. Can't believe how simple and good they were. Like lace cookies.

Cinnamon Almond Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
This was really easy and yummy. It's a great way to use up leftover rice--and would make a great breakfast too. I didn't have any honey, but added 1 T of sugar. I added it to the milk/rice mixture before I nuked it. I think a splash of vanilla would also be great. So happy I stumbled across this recipe.

Peach Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
Excellent. I cut the recipe in half so it would fit into my Cuisinart Ice Cream maker. Still had some left-over, so I let the kids make "ice cream in a bag" (put the ice cream mixture in a ziploc, and then put that inside a ziploc with ice/salt mixture...shake). I liked that I didn't have to make a custard on the stove... so this was so much easier. I think next time I'll use 1-1/2 cups of sugar vs. 1-3/4 cups (half recipe), as it was a little too sweet. Delicious nonetheless! Perfect summertime treat.

Ground Beef Curly Noodle

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
This was very easy and surprisingly yummy. I browned a whole onion with the ground beef..and added salt, pepper, and Worcestershire Sauce. I used two packaged of Ramen noodles, but only one seasoning pack. I also added a cup of water with the noodles as there didn't seem to be enough liquid. Delicious. :)

Fava Bean Breakfast Spread

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
My husband is Egyptian and we make this (ful) at least once per week. Usually, we sautee the onion and tomato in some olive oil first... then add the garlic... then add in the rinsed, canned beans. Mash them with a fork. And let cook. Add salt & pepper, cumin, and 1 T or so of tahini. A little lemon and parsley to finish. Divine. Really good served with eggs too... hard boiled are more traditional, but we also do sunny-side up and poached. The yolky-bean mixture is yummy.

Fried Apple Pies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
Super easy and yummy. I first made these two or so years ago. I followed the recipe and made the pie dough, using butter. They were yummy--even though I had never made pie dough before. This time I followed the suggestion of using Grand's biscuits. Just be sure to pat/roll them as thin as possible..as well as prick with a fork. They puff up bigtime if you don't. I dusted with cinnamon/sugar and they were wonderful. So easy to put together using the Grand's.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
I love the original. I made a lower-carb version as well by substituting 6 packets of Splenda for half of the sugar and 1/4 cup of almond meal (ground almonds) for the all purpose flour. Still quite delish. Oh.. if you can't find your 1/3 cup measuring cup... it's 5-1/3 tablespoons of cocoa powder. :)

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
This was incredibly delicious. I followed the recipe almost exactly... except I cooked the potatoes in 3 cups of water, 2 large bouillon cubes. Once they were almost cooked, I added in a box of frozen mixed veggies. This made a lot of filling, so instead of a pie pan, I used a deep square pyrex dish... the premade pie crust worked fine it it.

Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
Wow! These are really delicious, tender cookies. Not at all what I expected from a recipe that used 100% whole wheat flour. I followed the recipe to the letter except I doubled the vanilla extract (always do). Only complaint was that mine didn't have that cracked top look like some snickerdoodles--still delicious, though.
