Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
i followed it just as written, and it was wonderful. i used pumpkin spice soy milk to make the icing, and it was a nice touch. even my ultra picky husband loved them. a keeper for sure.

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
i made this as the recipe reads, and then made changes. therefore the 4 stars, because the changes as suggested make all the difference. i did use coconut milk, added garlic (which should definitly be sauteed in the butter) and a bit of onion powder, ginger, and cloves. we made some fresh bread and had a hearty meal for 4! very tasty, and a wonderful way to get into the season.

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
do not add the cream or butter! this soup simply does not need it. i cautiously added about a 1/4 cup of cream and 2 tbs of butter, and i agree whole-heartedly with previous reviews. the cream and butter completely supresses the basil and tomatoes. i also added a large clove of garlic, 1/2 tsp of both lemon juice and balsalmic vinegar -- and for protien, i added some shrimp sauteed in a bit of butter, garlic, salt, and balsalmic. i only added the shrimp for those who wanted it, after the soup was done, since not everyone is a fan of shrimp at my house :). i did seed the tomatoes, which doesn't take too long, and i used 5 tomatoes off-the-vine. after throwing everything in the food processor, the soup was very smooth -- but after adding the butter and cream i added a can of chopped tomatoes to both add chunks and reclaim the tomato flavor. i would make this again, but without butter or cream. we did really enjoy this! served with homemade french baguettes.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2007
the only reason here i can see as to why these might have tasted differently is because i used margarine (but good stuff) instead of butter (and it was all i had). these tasted funny. not much like pancakes, and it's rare when i disagree so strongly with a highly rated recipe. i normally make buttermilk pancakes, but i was, again, using what was on hand. the splash of vanilla may have been what threw them off, so i don't recommend that. my husband said they were "all right" and ate them, but my 5 year old, who will eat pancakes for any meal, wouldn't touch them. i'll not make this again. 3 stars for the butter substitute, otherwise it would have been less.

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
i had to mess with the amounts of everything here since i had just over a quarter cup of cocoa and not a lot to frost anyway. so i tried to adjust the best i could, and it still came out great. very smooth and sweet and chocolatey. we used margarine and soy milk, too.

Cheese Blintzes

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
these are yummy, but reminded me very little of blinzes, which involves crepes. my son was in charge of pounding the bread flat, and i have to say he did a good job. but even then, bread just isn't super flat! i didn't think this was a very messy job at all; in fact, it was quick and easy. i used 8 oz lactose-free cream cheese, with a splash of vanilla. avoided additional sugar, since we have blintes for breaking the yom kippur fast at dinner. we brushed a few tablespoons of butter on them before baking and did not cut them in half (and did have to bake them a little longer than suggested). i thought they were tasty, and fun to eat, and my son loved them. we might make them again for fun, but i think next yom kippur i will go ahead and make traditional blintzes.

Easy Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
i used lactose-free sour cream. the batter was so thick, i had to add a little water just to get it into the pan! and the amount of sliced apples seemed way, way, too much, so i sliced up only a few apples and added all of the nut mixture to this layer in the middle of the cake. nevertheless, it was a huge hit at rosh hashunah. i will probably make it next year, too.

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
so good, even my ULTRA picky husband ate it up. i will do this again many times -- the crust is actually the best part. finally, a bread you can taste the wheat AND the honey in!

White Bread For The Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
better so far than a few other white bread recipes for my new bread machine, but still not as good as what i have traditionally made by hand.

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
i'll admit, i never actually got to eat one of these, but that should say something about how much everyone enjoyed them -- and yes, my family is jewish, with half of us from new york. i put poppy seeds and sesame seeds on top, and will do the onion/garlic thing next time. i will make these often. thanks for the great recipe!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
these were good but by no means spectacular. we enjoyed them, but only made this recipe when we discovered we had forgotten to buy key ingrediants to make the "other" shrimp... tasty with a nice kick, but not memorable enough to make over and over.

Pita Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
we used mini-pita pockets. this has a great flavor, and spiced up the little pitas perfectly for dipping into hummus. i will do this again. thanks!

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
i would have rated this 3 and half stars. there just wasn't enough flavor, but the cashews competed the taste enough to be good -- but not great. also, the liquid really should be 2 and a half cups. the noodle are interesting, but i wonder if they are necessary, since they added nothing to the flavor. this might be better with orzo rice.

Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
everyone enjoyed this dish, but it made sooooooo much; enough for two nights of leftovers. i only added one can of chickpeas (the bowl was full already!).
