Citrus Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2013
Made this cheese cake for my husband who loves cheese cake. I used finely crushed shortbread cookies as the market here does not carry graham crackers. I followed the recipe otherwise but added slightly more lemon juice to the marmalade to offset the sweetness. I was careful not to stir the cream cheese filling too much and I cooked the cake in a water bath. The cake came out beautifully. I can't wait to surprise my husband.

Sue's Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
Great recipe but lacks the suble flavor of roasted garlic, fresh cracked pepper and white vinegar. We thoroughly wash the eggplant but never discard the skins. Blended, with olive oil on top.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
I liked these pretzels right out of the oven, but they got hard afterward.

Chef John's Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
This was a nice recipe that my husband liked too. I think next time we will try it with lamb. We used mixed fresh vegetables that we sauteed in butter. Our mixed vegetables were garlic, spoon-sized onions, baby carrots, chopped celery, and mushrooms. In the ground beef we used a dash of garlic powder and worcestershire sauce. Once the beef and vegetables were in the pan, I used a half can of cream of celery soup (and a little water) to spinkle over the beef and vegetables to keep the pie from being too dry. We used lebnah in the mashed potatoes as we were unable to find sour cream. We sprinkled sharp cheddar cheese on top and ate the meal with a hearty wheat bread and some fresh garden rocket. Will make this recipe again.

Building Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
I never made a gingerbread house before and wanted to try it. Molasses can be difficult to find in Qatar, so I used dark karo syrup and brown sugar. True the recipe was crumbly but did work when it was warmed in the microwave. Used templates and cut the dough with a pizza cutter. Gingerbread dough baked in the time provided and were cooled overnight. Instead of using Royal Icing to put the house together I used heated sugar syrup - 4 cups of sugar plus pasturized egg whites. The glue was great and assembly went quickly. I decorated the house with candy common to Qatar. Really enjoyed the experience of making a ginger bread house. The dough did not spread that much and the walls and roof were sturdy.

Coconut-Lime Cheesecake with Mango Coulis

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
This is a pretty good recipe, but I did change the ingredients where I could not find the items in the recipe. There are no gingersnaps that I can find in Qatar, so I used a brand of scottish shortbread cookies for the crust, with coconut and 2 teaspoons of sugar. The crust came out just fine. I could not find any coconut extract, but I did find coconut milk. I used heavy cream with the cream cheese to lighten it up a little. Real limes and zest. I wanted a smoother texture to the mangos, and added slightly more sugar. I used two ripe yellow mangos. The recipe tastes pretty good. If I had to improve it, I would double the cream cheese. I would use slightly more coconut milk. The lime was ok, but not enough for my taste.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2012
Loved how easy this pizza dough was made. I pre-cooked the dough before making the pizza, but next time, I might try the recipe without the pre-cook.
