  • I used ground turkey in place of the lamb. This was delicious and so easy. The peppers were perfectly cooked as well as the filling. The sauce is very tasty with the peppers. I would definitely make this again but use the recommended amount of feta since I added a bit more and the filling became a little salty.

  • This is good chili. It is definitely more of a Wendy's chili than a thick and chunky stew-type chili. I don't know if I would make it again because it was pretty time consuming. There were a lot of dirty dishes and multiple steps involving stovetop cooking that sort of negate the ease of using a pressure cooker. On a positive note, this was my first time cooking dried beans and I think it turned out well.

  • Delicious! Very rich. The whipped cream topping really makes it. It cuts through the sweetness from the condensed milk and tartness from the key limes. The cook times were exactly right.

  • These were pretty good. I probably used too much ginger in the meatballs and added quite a bit of broth. This turned into more of a soup, but it wasn't bad. Added rice noodles to the soup.

  • Does not look like the picture at all. The sauce was alright, but a bit too sweet for me. We had to cook it a bit longer for the sauce to thicken. I might make this again with a bit more vinegar or something to offset the sweetness. I also added a chopped bell pepper and would definitely add more vegetables next time.

  • Tasty corn! Not a light dish by any means...a little scoop is more than enough. I thought the miso would be overshadowed by the dairy, but it was a nice addition.

  • Love the dressing! Perfect with the tomatoes and bacon.

  • Delicious soup. Served with parmesan crisps and garlic bread.

  • Delicious! Served with rice and naan. Added the juice from one lime after cooking. Used jalapeno in place of the Fresno pepper since there are never red chilies around here.

  • Tasty soup! I thought the amount of cardamom would be too much, but it was fine. I threw the radish and cabbage in the pot for the second day and it worked well. I served with a scoop of rice in the bowl. Chili sauce is very spicy (should seed the peppers next time). Use sparingly.
    about Somali chicken soup from Milk Street Tuesday Nights added on July 14, 2019

  • This was delicious! I was hesitant about adding the sage because is tends to overpower everything, but it worked in this recipe. I may have pureed too many of the beans, resulting in more of a soup, but it was very tasty. Will definitely make again. Served with rice, scallion, and a few splashes of Crystal hot sauce.

  • Pretty tasty! Served with rice.
    about Kung pao roasted broccoli from Cravings added on June 27, 2019

  • Took much longer to cook and doesn't look at all like the picture. The chicken was very bland and sweet. The onion mixture didn't cook down at all. Chicken skin was flabby. Ugghh! Do not make again! I wasted a jar of homemade apricot jam on this mess of a meal.

  • Delicious! Had to use a bit of seasoned rice vinegar because I was out of unseasoned. Very tasty!

  • Love these cookies! I make these probably more than any other cookie. They are delicious and different than your standard chocolate chip cookie. I always forget to take a picture.

  • I made the fast version. We botched the recipe and forgot to slice the pork into pieces before marinading it, but it turned out okay. We had to cook the pork longer than the recommended time (maybe 10 minutes more) to get it crispier. Also, I think next time I might reduce the amount of Chinese five spice. It was too cinnamon forward for me.

  • Good salad. Enjoyed the black vinegar. I would probably cut the cucumber into smaller pieces since I used an English cucumber.

  • Great recipe. Cooked on the bbq. I was only able to marinate the chicken for about 2 hours, but might try longer marinade next time.

  • Tasty eggs. I would try less hard boiled next time. I used Gochugaru for the chili flake and it was detectable in the final product.

  • Very fluffy with an excellent flavor. Need to fine tune the cooking as they all came out a bit too dark. Definitely will make again. Used TJs reduced fat buttermilk.
    about Ridiculously good buttermilk pancakes from Heartlandia added on June 03, 2019

  • There was far too much buttermilk in this recipe. The pitas turned to gloop very quickly and made the fattoush unappealing. I wouldn't make this again.
    about Na'ama's fattoush from Jerusalem added on May 30, 2019

  • This was tasty. I couldn't find a butternut squash , but used sweet potatoes instead. They were okay, but the butternut would have been better. I was wary of the tahini sauce since I'm not a huge fan, but it turned out well. Also, the pine nut garnish was delicious. They tasted like salted popcorn. Yum!

  • These were good. Probably should have made them a bit crispier since the burger texture is kind of mushy.

  • I didn't have a perforated grill pan, so I used foil. I would watch this more closely next time, as 3/4 of the onions were burnt to a crisp and inedible. This is a good dip, but very rich. Far too rich to serve with potato chips...maybe use as a veggie dip next time.

  • So good! Used panko with butter, garlic, and parsley for the breadcrumb topping.
