Beef and Roasted Red Pepper Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2005
Torpedo rolls are rolls... shaped like a torpedo. I tend to prefer doing this kind of sandwich on baguettes -- better stuff-to-bread ratio, and, well, I love their crustiness. If your cheese isn't melting, try leaving it out on the counter for a while so it starts at room temperature. If your slices (of any cheese) start out too cold sometimes you can have the edges altogether melted while the middles aren't even soft. Also, this kind of provalone may or may not get gooey when it's melted -- that's mozzarella's job, after all. This cheese should be warm and soft, ideally. (Unrated because I didn't actually make this, but if I DID make it I'd probably add a bit oregano.)

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2004
Wonderful recipe! Very easy (especially with a food processor for the chopping) and very, very tasty. I was almost afraid to put the cream in at the end because it already tasted so good!

Manicotti Pancakes I

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2003
I had to add a little more water to get them thin enough, but after that they worked fine.

Vietnamese Beef Pho

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
Although since I've never had it before I can't vouch for the authenticity, everyone /loved/ it. I was very pleased with the effect of the lemon and curly purple (anise flavoured, kind of) basels, they work very well with this. I was a little paranoid about cooking the meat -- it looked really quite uncooked after I poured over the broth, but it really is great that way -- I cheated and put the leftover meat into the broth and it wasn't as good afterwards, so now I know to do it right the next time.

Gnocchi I

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2003
Mom says it might be the best gnocchi she ever had. They do turn out exactly like you want gnocchi to be: chewy and dense. Yum. When I made them, the dough was very stretchy and a little sticky, but I thought a test piece seemed dense enough and I didn't want to add any more flour... rolling out the 'worms' was almost impossible but it was easy enough just to cut a lump of it into strips, and then into little pieces.

Philly Steak Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2003
Nice combination of spices (I don't usually cook with thyme and marjoram). The meat seems a little more authentic if you cut out the chili powder in the rub and serve with hot sauce instead, but good in either case. I added a little meat tenderiser, too, since I used sirloin and that can be a little tough cooked like this.

Funnel Cakes II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2003
Obscure measurements (3/4 teaspoon? on three different measuring spoon rings, no 3/4 teaspoon here...) were slightly annoying, and I needed to add almost twice as much milk to even have a chance at getting the batter through a funnel were acceptable faults if the recipe turned out really good... which it didn't. The texture is all wrong, not nearly chewy and spongey enough. I added a bit of baking powder and that helped -- much more like what I get at the amusement park, but I think next time I've a taste for funnel cakes I'll still try a different recipe.

Tom Ka Gai (Coconut Chicken Soup)

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2003
Yum, very good. I added some more vegetables (sprouts, water chestnuts) for crunchiness and everyone was very happy with this. I've made it twice, and the second time my boyfriend ate so much he had to lie around complaining... this stuff is utterly impossible to leave alone until it's gone.

Lemon Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2003
I thought the taste was awful when it was warm -- all sweet, no lemon, more like caramel than anything else, so I added another lemon's worth of juice. No help, so I gave up and refrigerated it, which somehow brought the lemon flavour out. I still don't like it much, but mom says the flavour is "very good but too strong to eat much of." Still more sweet than I'd like... if I make this again I'll go ahead and use lots of extra lemon juice, since it set up well.

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2003
Fantastic! A wonderful flavourful dish made with the commonest ingredients (well, ok, I left out the peanut oil since I didn't have any, and it still turned out great) that prompted my mom to say, "I never want to go to a restaurant again!" The marinade is excellent, the peanut dipping sauce is wonderful ("I'd eat this by itself on white rice") and the recipe is easy-easy and quick-quick.

Mom's Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2002
I'm not a fan of ginger snaps, but these seemed easy to make, smelled good, and looked wonderful. For me, they came out so hard and crispy all the way through they almost chimed -- family likes them.

Arabic Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2002
Yummy cookie; after reading previous reviews I used too much coconut and they turned out excellent. Nice nutty taste, and the lack of eggs in the dough means I can snack on it while baking cookies. Safely. (Update: Makes really good bar cookies with melted chocolate chip icing; just spread out semi sweet chocolate chips on it when you take it out of the oven, then smear 'em around.)
