    "Made for PAC Fall 2011. Today, one can buy all kinds of complex and flavored eggplant dips, but the Master Recipe for them all looks like this family recipe. Yes, it's simple and economical, but it also has the taste of comfort food and love. We made ours using a toaster oven, rather than the full oven, to roast the eggplant -- cut down on the hea..."

    "Made for PAC Fall 2011. I had to wait until were giving a dinner party before making this recipe. As Mustafa's Cook mentioned, many Middle Eastern recipes are designed to feed an extended family. We had several appetizers, two entrees (this and a fish dish), two vegetable side dishes and desert. The portion size (6) is quite accurate.

    "Made for PAC Fall 2011. Made this recipe exactly as described. I'd suggest if you have an Asian market nearby, you should purchase your sesame oil there: the cost was almost half compared to my local grocery.

    We made the marinade exactly as described and it did have the complex flavor desired: sour at first, morphing to the heat of the ho..."

    "Made for PAC Fall 2011. We followed the recipe exactly, although based on the earlier review, we used Kosher salt, which has less salt (by volume) than iodized salt ... and the degree of saltiness was perfect. If you have only iodized salt, try using 1/2-3/4 tsp and then adjust to taste.

    We also had no leftovers ... at a dinner party, thi..."

    "Made for PAC, Fall 2011. Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best: 3 ingredients and 20 minutes ... but what you get is so much better than the bottled kind or what comes from the deli. We made these for a Middle-Eastern themed dinner, but it could have been any Mediterranean or Italian dinner. The peppers were tender, with just a hint of carme..."

    "Reviewed for PAC Fall 2011. "Stuffed Peppers" is a familiar recipe throughout the eastern Mediterranean and Middle East, but Syrian cuisine is renowned for its subtle flavor and execution. I made the "smaller" version of this recipe, 6 peppers, and it was wonderful. Clearly, the ingredients go back to a simpler, slower time ... and the flavor in t..."

    "Outstanding, simple recipe -- thanks for posting and sharing. My GF and I were cooking for 7, including an 18 month old and 2 4 year olds. Everyone loved the potatoes, no left overs!

    We modified the recipe slightly: fresh parsley, thyme and rosemary sprigs on the potatoes (eaxy to remove once the cooking was done), skipped the cayenne (ky..."

    "Wonderful recipe ... everyone from the 18 month old to the grandparents loved it & requested recipe. Easy to scale up (I ended up using 2 chickens, just took longer to brown and needed bigger pot for braising). This is quick enough to be a weekday meal, but can be served elegantly for a more formal dinner party.

    Advantages: short prep tim..."

    "Easy recipe, great flavor. Especially nice that everything just goes in together and the mix is really easy to work with, so making the meatballs is a really quick process. My DW is trying to lose weight but loves Italian, so a recipe without oil for frying and no eggs fits into her "400 Calorie Diet" plan. Our 18 month old GS is a meatball fanati..."

    "Excellent recipe and directions. Made it exactly as described (I have several Asian groceries nearby, so ingredients weren't a problem) and not only did I love it, but my GF (soon to be DW), a very picky eater not particularly fond of most Asian cuisine, loved it also .... to the point of asking me to make it again."
