Authentic Middle Eastern Hummus (Chummus)

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
Delicious!!! For the Americans who can't do without garlic here is another way to add it without overpowering your hummus with it: In the last 5 minutes of your boiling water with beans add some whole cloves of garlic in the water and let them boil with your beans. Add them in the blender with the rest of your ingredients, and bon appetit!

Japanese Zucchini and Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
What a great idea! Make sure you are adding just enough soy sauce though, cause it may turn out too salty. In any case taste before you add. Thanks for this fabulous recipe!

Hearty Baked Rigatoni

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
Very tasty! Can be done without ricotta cheese, but it's going to be less moist. I've done it before, adding about 1/4-1/2 cup milk in the place of ricotta.

Honey Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
Very tasty cake! It turned out great, pretty moist too. I didn't add the orange zest as I didn't have any. Also, I forgot about the oil, and just remembered to add it in the last minute, just before baking (it was corn oil btw)--still turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!

Cajun Compromise Catfish

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
This was awsome! We totally devoured it! You do need to double the recipe for the coating. BTW, I didn't have time to let them sit in the fridge, so I just started frying them as soon as I had them all prepared. It worked just fine, no problems whatsoever! Thanks for the recipe!

Fruitcake Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Delicious! Very good recipe, and quite versatile! I have to start with a "sorry" to the submitter of the recipe for substituting half butter for margarine; thankfully it worked very well for me. They turned up crispy on the edges and nice and chewy in the center (see photo). I used a combination of nuts, dried and candied fruit to a total of 3 cups (dried figs, almonds, walnuts, candied citrus peel, raisins), and added a pinch of ground clove. The dough was chunky and non-smooth but the cookies turned out beautiful! Thanks for a great recipe!

Barbecued Beef Liver

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2006
Never had liver like that before and I was surprized how tender a cooked liver can be! I put it in a pita bread and ate it like a hamburger, it was delicious. Oh! and super easy to make! Thanks:)

Briam (Greek Mixed Vegetables in Tomato Sauce)

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
Delicious! If you are using 1/2 cup olive oil, you don't need to add water, just cover the pan with aluminum foil. It should be done in about 1 hour or less at 400F. Serve with freshly baked bread! Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

Vinegar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Let cool completely before removing from pan. Use parchment paper for easier removal. I omitted the nuts because I didn't have any. They turned out delicious and my family/friends enjoyed them immensely! I wonder if baking powder would substitute the baking soda-vinegar ingredients, since these came out flat anyways. The dough is very dry, so don't get discouraged, they will flat out and turn out beautifully! thanks for the recipe!

Pudding Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
If it takes long for it to thicken increase heat to medium, it thickens immediately after it starts boiling. I added the vanilla and butter from the beginning (misread the directions), and it still turned out delicious. It really has the consistency of a pudding, so you could use it for filling a cake too, not only for icing. Unlike other commenters, my husband found this to be a bit on the sweet side, so I would adjust sugar to your liking. Thanks for the recipe!

Ukrainian Dill and Garlic Pickles

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
These are very aromatic and delicious! Thanks for the recipe! My problem was that they come out too salty. I'm wondering if it's because I scaled down the recipe and the ingredients are not supposed to be scaled down. I will try with 5 pounds of cucumbers next time. Make sure you are not using a plastic container for these, but a glass or ceramic one as the recipe specifies; it does make a difference. If yours come out too salty like mine did, here is how I saved them: Pour the liquid out, and wash the cucumbers with running water (if too salty, soak them in water for some time). Return them in the container with the spices. Boil 1 part vinegar, with 1.5 part water, and 1/4 part sugar. Pour the boiling liquid on top of the cucumbers, seal and store in refrigerator. Good luck!

Raisin Spice Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
This was absolutely delicious! The boiling the raisins step did make a big difference in taste for the better. I substituted butter for shortening as I didn't have any on hand. The texture of the crust was very presentable! Thank you for this recipe!

Almond Cherry Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Very good! I formed 1 big rectangle instead of two. While baking it flattened a lot. But the final result is delicious.

Easy Swedish Apple Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
Not bad, but just like somebody else said: this is apples with a giant cookie on top. I reduced the sugar in half and it still was pretty sweet. Although, I didn't use granny smiths.

Microwave Bread and Butter Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
These were very easy to make, hence the good rating. Nevertheless, they did come out a little too vinegary for us and needed a little more flavor. I will use this method again with another vinegar and spice combination. Thanks for the recipe!

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
I used quick cooking oats and these turned out not cookie like, but more like a health bar. It was pretty good considering it is health food. I found them pretty sweet despite that they didn't have any sugar. Instead of 1 cup chopped dates, I used 1 cup of a mix of dried chopped dates, pineapple, raisins, and figs.

Delicious, crunchy and very easy! My husband, who is not a huge fun of pickles and vinegar in general, loved these!

Southern-Style Neck Bones

First time making neck-bones and I found this recipe to be simple and delicious. Just basic ingredients that add up to a tasty, fall-of-the-bone meal :) Thank you for the recipe!

Chicken Dilly

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Good but not perfect. Something misses that will make the taste even better. Also, next time I might substitute dill for oregano, or for basil, as dill was not very complementary to the eggplant/tomato.

Corn Tortillas

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
That was my first time making tortillas ever; they were delicious!!!!! The dough texture seemed weird (pretty flaky) at first but I gave them a try anyway. Btw, I used 2 cups of maseca and 1 and a half cup water approximately. Make sure after you uncover the dough to keep it moist, away from drying sources. I rolled the dough between two pieces of parchment paper, and had no problems with stickyness. I couldn't quite make them round, so after rolling and before putting them in the pan I cut them in rectangular, triangular, etc pieces and sticked them in the pan. The most important thing in this process is to not forget to cover them after you take them out of the pan. I put them in a plastic bowl with lid. When I took them out of the pan they were hard, but after taking them out of the bowl they were soft and delicious! Good luck!
