Never Fail Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
You don't need 2.5 lbs of beef, I used one and just most of the stuffing box (I used chicken flavour, it's all I had), and one egg. The stuffing gave a tremendous amount of flavor to this dish. I will def make this again!!!

Indian-Style Butter Chicken (Murgh Makhani)

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
This is not a bad place to start. I used 2 more tomatoes, less onion (half of one), 1 more garlic, and fresh fenugreek leaves. I skipped the yogurt and used fat free half and half. A pound of chicken is also a bit much. I used one good sized breast. Also, use whole caradmom/cloves/cinnamon. Where is the turmeric?

Mensaf (Jordanian Lamb Stew)

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
If you don't have goat's milk, use yogurt mixed with some whole milk to thin it out.

Umm Ali

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Eh. This was just OK. Considering the MANY wonderful desserts coming out of the Middle East, I should have known that this was too easy to give me the results I wanted. I'll stick to the all day, time consuming recipes my grandmothers taught me. The puff pastry doesn't absorb the milk at all, and even if you fill the dish with it, and then it gets crispy on top. The nuts suck in moisture and taste odd after they bake.

D'Amaretti Biscotti

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
Good basic recipe. It needed more flour though to keep the dough from being too sticky. I used margarine instead of butter. Also, I scored the dough first, AND I cut it before cooling it and I had little to no crumbling--but use a single-motion when cutting through, or you may pull out dough from the middle.

Chicken Satay with Homemade Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
Mine needed a bit of salt and I used 2/3 cup of smooth peanut butter. It was still really good..I even added a pinch of dried red pepper flakes and eliminated the seeded chiles and it was fine. I wish mine was a little more sour though. Still awesome!

Acini di Pepe Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
So good and so simple! Love it! Some changes I made: no marshmallows, and I used fruit cocktail instead of mandarin oranges. I didn't use marachino cherries, either, except on top. I also added 1/2 cup of walnuts and pecans (mixed, whatever I had on hand) and that was PERFECT!

Beef Curry Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2003
Excellent soup that is very easy to make. I suggest a tad bit more curry, and less onion, more like 1 and 1/2.

Cheese Bourekas

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2007
My husband loved this but I wasn't crazy about it. The pastry didn't cook all the way through and you couldn't taste and cheese or egg.

You could even skip the extracts, except vanilla, and get a great custard!!

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
Made this several times, have always wanted a good cream of mushroom soup. I think 5 cups of mushrooms is hard to follow, just use one package. Best part is, you can adjust the consistency to your taste.

Baked Brie with Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
I didn't bother caramelizing the onions, I just let the apples get very soft. Also left out the roasted garlic. This is an AMAZING recipe!!

Baked Rice (Ross Fil-Forn)

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
I added a lot more spice, and I used freshly roasted tomatoes. If you're not really careful the rice will not cook, so I recommend that you use a quicker cooking rice like Jasmine. It's also tastier.

Italian Creme Layer Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
This recipe didn't work for me, though I admit I was using an oven foreign to me. I am an experienced cake maker and this was NOT what I was looking for, at all.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2007
My batter turned out a little thick, so I thinned it, and I wish I had thinned it more---these were too thick to be called pancakes! Still...they were fluffy and delicious. I added a little vanilla to it, too.

Wild Rice Soup III

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
This really had no taste to it at all. It's only semi-creamy and I don't understand the point of the rice if all you will do is pour the liquid over it!
