Fresh Applesauce

Fresh Applesauce

I used Gravenstein apples, added 1 tsp. of nutmeg and used a handheld stick blender. Great, easy and reliable recipe! — cleverkt 8/17/2011
Chana Masala

Chana Masala

The author talks about cumin seeds or powdered cumin yet it is not listed as an ingredient and therefore we have no idea of how much to use. Cumin is very powerful spice, especially in seed form. I added only half a tsp of the powdered cumin and that was just right for this recipe. If you use cumin seed, you can remove it once you have fried it up or roast it in a pan by itself then blend it in a spice mill to get your own yummy powder. This recipe was great! 12/10/2010
Chocolate Ganache Sandwiches

Chocolate Ganache Sandwiches

Just made these super easy cookies for a holiday exchange party. They were a hit. They did not end up looking like the picture here but hey...it was chocolate on chocolate love so who cares what they look like right ? ;) I did let them sit overnight in the fridge and they were soft rather than crunchy. Every person at the party asked for the recipe! — kmhaslam 12/5/2010
Chile Verde (La Frontera Style)

Chile Verde (La Frontera Style)

Great recipe. I used chipotles instead of serrano and have used both shrimp and chicken instead of the pork. I pour this over the Chipotle Cilantro and Lime rice instead of the burrito. We also put a bit of sour cream on top. Honestly, each time I make it I do something different but the basic recipe is excellent. — MGrymme 12/5/2010
Orange Juice Cake

Orange Juice Cake

Easy recipe but you need to add nuts to your shopping list as they are not part of ingredients. Also the recipe stops short of plating the cake, I can see that the originator added a dusting of powdered sugar. I also reserved a small amount of the glaze and drizzled that on the completed cake prior to the powdered sugar. I too agree that adding lemon or orange zest to the cake mix compliments the flavor. 8/2/2010
