Spicy Black Bean Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
this was good, but i wasn't blown away. a nice change from ordinary salad; i'll probably do it again. i was afraid there might be too much mayo, and cut it down, but i was wrong and i'll definetly use the full amount next time.

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
simple and flavorful. i got compliments all around. hint: don't leave the shrimp in the fridge for longer than an hour. also, i used dijon mustard instead of plain brown.

Brown Sugar-Rum Pound Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
this just wasn't nearly as good as the more "traditional" pound cake i've made. it was too light to feel like pound cake, and too brown sugary to taste like it. also, the "glaze", once cooled, wound up like candy-caramel topping, so hard and sticky that i had to cut off the top of the cake so people could eat it. the 9 year olds in my family never turn down cake. if you try this recipe, DONT ADD THE GLAZE. as for me, i won't make it again.

Texas New Potato Salad with Grilled Red Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
this is original and makes a great change of pace from "creamy" potato salad. of course, i live in houston, and have never had much intertest in cafe annie since they're rumored to have been on the decline recently. but i got lots of compliments from family at yesterday's bar-b-q. 4 stars because you really have to serve this fresh and warm; i had mine in the fridge for 8 hours or so and it really lacked the kick it had when i first made it.

Best Ever Sausage with Peppers, Onions, and Beer!

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2006
make sure you really do use a big big skillet or pan. i didn't have room for the other onion! didn't matter though, my husband loved it. next time i'll use a better beer, though, for extra kick.

Pineapple, Lime, and Ginger Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2006
oooooo a challenge. so here's what i did. i put the pepper, pineapple, ginger, cilantro, and lime in the blender. i used coconut milk instead of water and pureed it all. then i warmed the oil in a pot and added the soup; then added two teaspoons roasted red pepper chili paste and two tablespoons peanut butter, and heated until melted. i actually am sick, and had been looking forward to trying this recipe. i'm giving four stars because of all the modifications, but i know i'll make this again. this time i threw in some crab, but next time i'll probably add some tofu. i really agree with all the other reviews -- give this a try and modify to taste. it's worth it!

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2006
i baked these after rolling them into balls. they were still a little soft, but the taste totally reminded me of summer camp, when every year the israeli scouts would come for a week and make falafel. this is a great recipe (but i did use another tzatziki recipe!). thanks!

Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2006
i was so torn over how many stars to give this and i finally settled on 4 -- here's why: had i not read the reviews, i might have ended up with a really liquidy mess. i strained the yogurt and salted the cucumbers for about half an hour - i was admittedly in a hurry, and i'm sure it would have been even thicker if i had left the yogurt to drain even longer. i also added some mayo (also per another review)and mint, and used juice from the whole lemon, and added a bit more dill -- put all in the blender and processed. in the end, the dip was thick enough for veggies or chips or pita or anything else. tastes great, both cool and spicy. with modification, this is a great side (plus, with fat free yogurt and mayo, it's almost guilt free).

Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2006
i personally thought this smelled wonderful, and i did take a very small taste of the broth as it cooked, and thought it was awesome. my son ate up the chicken, and my husband said it was good, but never wanted seconds or leftovers, hence the 4 stars. i used chicken gravy, and more of it, and cream of chicken soup instead of celery. i also added carrots and celery and an extra potato. my hubby did say he thought it needed more salt ...

Berry Lemon Mousse Parfait

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2006
quick and easy and light. i thought it made about 3 servings. i didn't use the lemon extract and i thought it was lemon-y enough.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2006
i cannot rave enough! this bread was easy - and i'm qualified to say so, since i have to mix by hand. it's sweet, but has such a great "bread" taste too. it's light and fluffy and went perfect with our summer-fruit themed dinner. i might have to make this every few days!

Squash and Apple Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2006
this is delicious, and i don't think i'll ever make candied yams again. butternut squash is such a pain to deal with, but i sure do love it. i know i'll make this again for sure. thanks so much for the recipe!

Italian Confetti Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
i wouldn't call it the best, but it is really good. i didn't think it was too much mayo myself, and i used a little more than 2 cups dry pasta, which i also thought was just right. a good recipe overall, and a good recipe to play with.

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
these are only okay, absolutely nothing spectacular about them. if you use butter instead of oil, be aware that you will really taste the butter. not nearly chocolately enough for chocolate brownies. plus, this recipe is the same as several other recipes, and i was looking for something more unique. i'll stick to my own.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
these are just "okay" brownies, nothing spectacular. mine took a lot longer to cook, and i thought the buttery taste was way too noticeable. plus -- this recipe is the same as several others on this site, minus the frosting (which i didn't use; i guess i just think frosting id for cakes).

Empanadas

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2006
MAKE DOUBLE OR TRIPLE THE BATCH. there just isn't enough for how fast they will go. i used pumpkin filling (my husband's favorite)and had the dough in the fridge for 2 days before using it and it was easy to work with once i started rolling it out. i used a lot of flour in the process, as suggested, and had no problems with sticking. i think someone mentioned a bit of salt in the dough, which i might throw in next time, but just a pinch. the only problem? i wound up with only eleven empanadas and get this: right before baking, a crew of workers who were fixing a transformer in my backyard sat down outside to watch the world cup with my husband. not enough to go around! i'll do this a lot, i'm sure - thanks!
