    Reviewed Lebanese Spinach and Lentil Soup

    Wednesday, Jan 28, 2015 on

    This was delicious -- perfect soup for a snowy day here in "Downeast" Maine! As one reviewer suggested, I added a little extra cumin as well as 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne to give it a bit of heat. The technique of sauteing the spinach until almost brown and then adding it at the end was really different and definitely added to the flavor. I will ...

    Reviewed Moroccan Meatball Stew

    Friday, Jan 16, 2015 on

    Fabulous stew -- and as wonderful as it was the first night, it was infinitely better the second; I think next time I may make it the day before and reheat! A friend to whom I gave some leftovers opined that it was one of the best meals that she';d *ever* eaten; that';s saying something, because she';s a fine cook in her own right. ...

    Wednesday, Dec 24, 2014 on

    This was lovely -- and, I suspect, will be even more tasty tomorrow! Since there are only two of us, I cut the recipe in half, and used a combination of prunes and apricots. Served with brisket and latkes to celebrate the final day of Hannukah."

    Shared Recipe Greek Lamb Stew

    Sunday, Nov 16, 2014 on

    "Reminds me of a dish I used to eat at an inexpensive Greek restaurant in "Hell's Kitchen" 30 years ago (only I think that was braised rather than stewed). I served it over rice (the original recipe suggested either that or orzo). Great flavors! From"

    Reviewed La Madeleine's Tomato-Basil Soup

    Friday, Nov 14, 2014 on

    I have to admit that I decided to make this recipe on the spur of the moment (at the supermarket) and, having to reconstruct it in my head, grabbed a container of half-and-half rather than heavy cream. Other than that, I followed the rest of the recipe to a "T" (3 cups tomato juice, 1 cup vegetable broth in my case) and it was delicious! I do..."

    Shared Recipe One Bowl Apple Cake

    Saturday, Nov 1, 2014 on

    "I found this recipe on Epicurious, but I've cut back dramatically on the sugar (from 1-3/4 cup to 1 cup), and substituted maple syrup for the sugar (2/3 cup maple syrup = 1 cup sugar). I also used 3 Granny Smith apples and 3 Gala apples rather than all Galas, making for a more complex flavor and texture. I don't do much baking, but this is easy a..."

    I';ve really been getting into the spice combinations of the Middle East and North Africa, so this recipe was right up my alley! I think a little cayenne (maybe 1/4 tasp?) would be a nice addition. I may have had the heat up too high, though, because it got a bit dry at the end and I had to add some water -- or should the skillet have been ...

    Sunday, Jul 13, 2014 on

    This recipe has all of the right bells and whistles, but it';s a little dry; I think I';d increase the dressing by at least half (if not doubling it) for next time. And there definitely *will* be a next time!"

    "A cold pureed soup that's an interesting change from gazpacho. Found on, an interenational soup recipes site."

    Tuesday, Jul 8, 2014 on

    This was very tasty -- my husband suggested it was like ceviche without the fish! And, like ceviche, it';s a perfect recipe for a hot, steamy day. However, I made a couple of modifications and a couple of suggestions: First the modifications:
    1. I increased the dressing by half, thinking that it might be too dry otherwise; I bel...

    Simply delicious and so easy! I';d definitely recommend using fresh mint if you can get it; fortunately we have some spearmint growing in our garden. Perfect dish for a steamy summer day."

    Reviewed Two-Step Artichoke Tapenade

    Saturday, May 31, 2014 on

    I thought (and the friends who tasted it at the pot luck that I brought it to agreed) that the taste was delicious but it was a little soupy. I think I';ll cut back the olive oil next time to at least under 1/4 cup -- maybe less."

    Sunday, Mar 16, 2014 on

    "I was deputed to make a salad for a small St. Patrick's Day celebration and found the following through a google search. It has nothing whatsoever to do with Ireland -- other than being the right color scheme -- but it was a big hit! Nice combination of textures and flavors."

    Shared Recipe Beans and Greens

    Friday, Feb 28, 2014 on

    "This is a modification of a recipe that I found right here on (#31988). An Italian friend from Brooklyn told me about starting with anchovies; I figured out how much tomato paste to add. Sometimes I throw in a handful of small whole-grain macaroni, if I can't find any decent bread (we live in a small town, and I'm not one for baking)."

    Shared Recipe Spicy Sausage Borscht

    Saturday, Feb 15, 2014 on

    "A friend traded me this recipe for my oxtail split-pea soup. I've got to say, for a quick and easy recipe (less than an hour to table), it really packs a wallop! The use of spicy sausage is key here, as well as the fennel seed, dill seed, and fresh dill, and using canned beets makes it *so* much less work than it would be otherwise. I think mayb..."

    Sunday, Dec 15, 2013 on

    "Usually this dish is made with pork, but here's a nice variation on the theme from a rather unlikely place -- *Better Homes and Gardens' Mexican Cooking*. I added one morita/chipotle pepper to the beef/onion stage for some extra heat, and I would definitely include cilantro and lime quarters in with the other toppings!"

    Sunday, Nov 17, 2013 on

    Not your typical carrot soup, for sure! Loved the citrus notes combined with the earthiness of the coriander and cumin. Have to admit I didn';t bother with the twists, and I didn';t have rice flour so used regular flour instead. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly, even to the crushing of the coriander seed. It was well wor...

    These were really tasty! Didn';t cook mine quite enough; will do better next time. However, the combination of the vinegar and the coriander and caraway seed was definitely a treat. I';m constantly amazed by the way spices are combined in the Islamic world of Northern Africa and the Middle East; this is one more illustration."

    Wednesday, Oct 16, 2013 on

    These are wonderful! A friend gave me some rather large cucumbers, so I cut them into spears rather than leaving them whole; otherwise, I followed the recipe. What a marvelous earthy flavor and so easy to prepare! I';m thinking that brine would be marvelous with carrots -- hoping to try that next. Thanks so much for posting."

    Reviewed Lemon Chicken Soup With Quinoa

    Sunday, Sep 29, 2013 on

    Delicious! And no, you don';t need to add any (or at least not much) salt, because the lemon juice takes care of everything. We used the better part of a roasted chicken, which we put in only a few minutes prior to adding the spinach so that it would be warmed. We';re delighted to have leftovers."

    Saturday, Sep 14, 2013 on

    "A quick, easy, and tasty supper. It's very forgiving, so you can adjust the proportions to your taste; I'd definitely add more olive oil and sage than called for. If you can't find/afford Fontina, substitute Monterrey Jack. From Martha Stewart's Everyday Food."

    My spouse (who has diabetes) prefers -- both for health and taste reasons -- tagines that don';t have any sweetness (honey and/or dried fruits) in them. We both liked this recipe a lot. It also has the virtue of coming together very quickly; most of the work is just assembling all the spices! I made one slight modification, which was to use...

    Friday, Aug 16, 2013 on

    I really like the idea of this, but I think the proportions need to be altered slightly to get more of that wonderful flavor -- either less pasta or more of everything else! I *will* make it again, however, with those adjustments."

    Well, this was lovely, but as some have already written, not really enough for 4; perfect for the two of us, served with poached fish. Our garden';s tomatoes aren';t ready yet (the beans were), so I used the better part of a can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes instead. Can';t wait to try it again when our tomatoes ripen!"
