"Excellent raita. For the person who can not use cucumbers, try Armenian "cucumber" (Cucumis melo var. flexuosus.) This actually a variety of muskmelon. I grow them in my garden and use them in any cucumber recipe -- including pickles. They're easier to grow and never get bitter."
"I leave milk out on the counter for a few days to sour as my Irish gradnma did, rather than use buttermilk. I checked with a few bakers I know who were raised "on the other side" and this is also their method. I liked it with the buttermilk, but the sour milk works and tastes better to me. Ah, well -- to each his own.
To the person looking for"
"to kissmekate322 - just an fyi: I bake at least a half dozen potatoes per week, and have for the past 30+ years. I bake different kinds of potatoes, at different and sometimes differing temps (depending on what else is going on in the oven). I rarely pierce the skin. I have never had a single potato explode. Maybe I'm just lucky, but the amou"
"My family went nuts when they saw this on the show. I didn't have walnuts or enough sour cream, but ... I used pecans and about 1/4 cup sour cream and 1/4 whole milk yogurt. Perhaps I shouldn't review because of the substitutions, but it was FABULOUS!!! A++++. Made it last night, I had one small piece. The other two members of my family demoli"
"Great! First time I made according to the recipes. Second time I added a drop of vanilla and a tiny drop of PURE almond extract -- exquisite. The next batch of mix I made I added 4-1/2 TBSP. buttermilk mix (SACO brand 4TBSP mix +1 cup water = 1 cup buttermilk) , and used water instead of milk when mixing the pancakes. Everyone went NUTS!! I"
"1. The baby artichokes MUST be very fresh and young* or they will be woody/stringy.
2. I always have sour salt in my spice cabinet. You can use this instead of the vitamin C capsules. It is powdered vitamin C. It keeps forever and you can use it anytime you need acidulated water (atrichokes, apples, pears, etc.).
* Baby artichokes are not the"
"Excellent, pretty much the traditional recipe I've used for aeons. After all the meat is gone, let the fat sit and solidify. Saute onions, cook eggs, whatever. Cook eggs and add the sofrito... There are zillions of uses for everything in the pot. The rice is also very similar to the rice I make, but had no olives. I added some roughly chopped"

"I agree with the other reviewers, excellent recipe! Although the initial $ investment is quite a bit, it makes so much, it's really not expensive per serving. If you'd like to save a bit more, two suggestions:
1. Instead of pancetta, dice some supermarked bacon, blanch it and then proceed as if it were the pancetta. I did this once when pan"
"The Lemonade pie is great. Inspred the review by pmmelton_12923889(copy or review follows this text) I made the limeade -great. The next time I went to make it, I had loads of leftover egg whites, so I baked off some meringues and placed them on each slice as I served them I kept the meringues in a sealed tin until ready to serve - added fruit a"
