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

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
i used yukon golds and did cut them into wedges, used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, and added garlic powder. they came out perfectly.

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.

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
this is just as it says -- tasty, easy, and fast. i even used lactose-free sour cream, and it was awesome. this is going to become a regular. thanks for the recipe!

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2007
as per the suggestions of others, i added applesauce and doubled the spices. i thought it was wonderful, very moist and flavorful -- i can't imagine this recipe without the doubled spices at least, since it seems to me it would have been very bland without them, perhaps accounting for the "too molassesy" comments. my 4-year-old son helped me make it, and gobbled it up. i will make this again.

Pepperoni Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
used pillbury french bread loaf -- makes it easy because you can unroll the loaf. the kids and adults loved this; i also made one with soy cheese and meatless pepperoni and it was just as successful. i don't think you need the egg. but i think using pizza or marinara sauce as a dip is a great idea because it was dry. a fast, easy, and fun treat.

White Chocolate Amaretto Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
very moist, dense and delicious. i boiled the glaze for ten minutes and what i got wasn't glaze, but toffee. it looked nice and tasted great but was essentially like coating the cake in candy. needless to say, i didn't add frosting or almonds. i think the cake would have been much better with the frosting drizzled on and almonds added; or with a much smoother glaze and the almonds. any vanilla frosting would surely be overkill. everyone loved it, but if i make it again, i'd definitely tinker with the topping.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
i've learned to try to save 5 star ratings for truly remarkable recipes. this was good, and everyone enjoyed it -- but from my husband i got "too tomatoey" and "it was okay". i thought it was tasty but not particularly memorable. simple though. i used one can of whole tomatoes and two diced. this recipe and a whole box of pasta was enough for 4 adults and 2 kids, plus leftovers.

Tofu Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
i used soy cheese and added zuchinni and mushrooms, and also doubled the sauce. it definitely needs the veggies for substance. i thought this was fantastic, but got only "it was okay" from my family, hence the 4 stars. i would make this again, and continue to tweak it.

Vegetable and Feta Latkes

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
i eyeballed the amounts of zuchinni and potatoes and carrots, and probably used more zuchinni. i also added a bit of mrs dash to spice it up and used mediterranean feta. be sure and drain the veggies well, and fry them until crispy, otherwise you'll have soggy latkes. i got absolutely rave reviews from my family, and i'm sure these will be a yearly request. thanks for the great recipe!

Grandma's Corn Bread Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
i made this without onion, since i can't handle them, vegetable broth, and added green bell pepper. as per other reviewers, do not use a conbread mix with sugar in it (or make your own cornbread to avoid the chance; besides, it's fun)! also, use broth that's low sodium or omit the added salt. my husband loved this so much i made it again for him 2 days later. this is a great dressing recipe!

Tofu Turkey II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
i wish i could give this a higher rating. i was thankful for other reviewers, since it at least gave me a good place to start. i added poultry seasoning as well as thyme, sea salt, and pepper to the tofu; i actually made this twice, on thanksgiving and a few days later. both times i had to use firm tofu, and i'm not sure xtra firm would have made a difference. the mold worked very well, but i'd recommend leaving it to chill for as long as you can; two hours was just enough the first time and not quite enough the second time. the first time i used my cranberry sauce as glaze and the second time i used the bar-b-q sauce mix; the cranberry tasted better but the bar-b-q sauce looked better. i made my own stuffing as well, so that wasn't an issue. both times there were not leftovers, but i attribute that more to the flavor lended by the stuffing. the tofu itself was mushy and not very tasty (like i said, i spiced it up as much as i could, but was afraid to go too far and wreck the blending of flavors) and didn't look very appealing on the plate. the concept here is good, but falls flat in actuality.
