Fabulous French Loaves

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
this is bread, and it isn't bad, but it's nothing special and doesn't seem much like traditional french bread. i won't make this again, i think i'll keep looking.

Shrimp and Crab Bisque

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
i used soy half-n-half and crab only. i added some old bay, paprika, and cayenne -- also browned 2 cloves of garlic in the butter as recommended. left out the chicken bouillon. this recipe is simple and yummy but i feel it still lacks something. i will definitly make it again, and continue to experiment. thank goodness for soy rpoducts so that i can enjoy this kind of food again!

Viva Madrid Spanish Chicken

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
i also left out the dates. My husband and son both really enjoyed this dish, except that my husband isn't a big fan of all the bacon and onion bits in the end (he has texture issues). Next time, I will complete the sauce, strain it, and then add the chicken again for his sake. I also added a bit of cornstarch to thicken the sauce. I have no idea why people said this would take so long, it didn't take me any time at all.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
i'm vegetarian, and i used imitation beef crumble for this; it was delicious. easy to make and fun to eat -- i made this site's cilantro peanut dip to go with it and it was a hit. i will make this again. thanks!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
these are really good and fun to make. i would not recommend using "candy melt" chocolate, since it's very waxy. i used dark chocolate chips, but next time i will have more on hand, since the whole package wasn't quite enough to make 12. i would also recommend making the bottoms thicker than the tops, just because it makes it easier to get them out (i also just put them right in without paper cups) . i used chunky peanut butter, but then had to add some creamy to make the sugar/pb mixture. either way, it was delicious. when you're adding the pb mixture, make sure you leave room around the edges so that when you pour chocolate on top it will touch the bottom layer, and not leave any holes. i will definitly make these again.

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: May 4, 2007
i would have given this 3 starts except that my husband liked it and he's sooo picky. not very flavorful in my opinion. cilantro is a good addition. you must use jasmine rice or other asian variaties. don't use plain long grain white.

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2007
i also used about 3/4 c of peanut butter, reversed the white and brown sugars, and didn't add salt. baked at 300 degrees for about 35 minutes. they are a bit crumbly rather than chewy, and a bit dry. next time i will add an extra egg. frosted with a light chocolate frosting. these are good, and with some adjustments, i will make them again;******* made these again wihout any changes, and added erin's frosting suggestion. i even made them without the benefit of an electric mixer, AND while holding my ten-month-old son. my husband, who begs for a great pb bar, loved these. 5 stars, and added to my permenant collection ... :)

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
i wish i could rate this 3 1/2 stars. i just can't give it 4. this was really sweet, way too sweet for breakfast for us, mainly because the sauce practically WAS candy. i turned the bread over during it's soak in the fridge and when baking and it still stuck a bit to the pan. it also looked very unappealing. i was the only one who ate it. it tasted good, but nothing new or exciting. sorry!

Easy Paella

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
i used saffron rice as well, and green bell pepper. i substitued some cayenne pepper for the red pepper flakes (maybe only 1/2 tsp), omitted the shrimp, and added tomato. it was a huge hit -- my best friend, for the first time, asked for the recipe, and she's not a big cook. this was an easy, flavorful dish.

Special Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
no one really ate them. i also made margaret sanders' recipe from this site, and those were a big hit. i thought these were too runny because of the 1/4 cup of mayo, and the sweet relish was overpowering. if you make them, i'd advise less of both.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
i can't not give this 5 stars because i'm a choco-holic, and everyone knows the candies and cakes are the best things about passover :) this is RICH and thick, very like fudge, almost. but it's sooooo good. i used a springform pan, which made it easy, and when baking i only had water up an inch or two on the side of the pan. this would be great with raspberry sauce, as others suggested; next time i might add a little almond or hazelnut extract. i made most of the sedar meal -- it was all a big hit, but the cake by far got the most rave reviews.

Bella's Rosemary Red Potatoes

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
not spectacular, but awfully good. i used 1 1/2 pounds of carrots since i was feeding a crowd, and since many people had said it was too much sauce, i didn't increase the recipe -- but then had to later. so i can't imagine that it was too much to start with. i also added a few splashes of basalmic vinegar, i'm sure i'll make this again.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
this was just a disappointment. someone else mentioned that when they bake a cake from scratch, it should taste like it, and i agree. this didn't even really taste like a cake mix; it lacked a rich flavor and had a very spongy texture. i even took the cake from my house to my parents, and in the end, we just threw it away with 3/4 of it left. i consider myself a good cook, and i am pretty surprised so many people have enjoyed it, honestly. i won't make this again.
