Walnut Pear Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
Very good coffee cake. After reading the other reviews, I decided to make it in my 10 inch pan and am glad I did, because it still took almost an hour to cook. I reduced the sugar in the cake to 1/2 cup, but other than that followed the recipe. Will definitely make this again. Great flavour and texture. I think it would also be good with different fruit and nut combinations. Hmmm... red currants and almonds, perhaps? Rhubarb instead of pears? Apple and pecan??

Coconut Cream Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Good but too sweet for my tastes. Will cut back the sugar next time.

Graham Cracker Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This came out fairly crumbly for me. It didn't stay together very well when I served the pie. It tasted good, though.

Almond Jelly

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Very nice and light. so easy to make. Served with fresh fruit salad. As per other reviews, I reduced the sugar to only 1/2 cup and it was sweet enough. I might use more gelatin next time.

Bengali Dhal

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
This was really easy to throw together. I made it on a whim and I had all of the ingredients at home already. It seems like quite a simple dish, but the caramelized onions and fresh coriander really give the dish something extra so don't leave those out! I will probably double the caramelized onions next time. I increased the turmeric, as per another reviewer's suggestion. And... I had to use up some butternut squash in the fridge, so I grated about a cup of that and threw it into the pot with the tomatoes. I don't think it really affected the flavour or texture of the dish at all. Not 'authentic,' I know, but it DID make this dish even healthier. I still prefer spicier curries to dhal, but this recipe is still a keeper due to it's simplicity. Thanks for sharing!

Paneer (Home Made)

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
Great recipe. I used vinegar instead of lemon juice. I doubled it and got over 300g (about 3/4 of a lb) of cheese from 2L of whole milk. I pressed my paneer under a heavy pan and some cookbooks. I experimented with the paneer when cooking it. I'd seen other recipes that said to fry it before adding it to curries, so I fried half before adding it to my curry and added the other half as is. The frying definitely gave it a chewier texture and helped it keep it's shape better. The cheese was equally tasty both ways. I've also read that the whey can be used in soups and also for making bread, roti or chapatti. Will definitely be making this again. Where I live, paneer isn't available, so I'm very happy to have found this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

German Brotchen Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
The inside texture was good, but I think I'll need to tweak the baking instructions to suit my old temperamental gas oven in order to get the crunchy golden crust.

Maltese Rabbit Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Good. Was the first time preparing rabbit for me. Didn't have a dutch oven big enough, so I browned the pieces in a skillet and put them in a roaster. After browning the meat, I poured the red wine in the pan to get all of the brown bits off then added that to the roaster along with all of the other ingredients (plus a little water). Roasted it for an hour and it came out great.

Kalamata Olive Tapenade

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
Made this and the Sundried Tomato Tapenade (also from here) for a party. The general comment was "This is good - if you really like olives." It's quite rich, and nobody had more than one or two servings. So... this is good, but I'd only recommend it for olive lovers.

Sundried Tomato Tapenade

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
I made this one and the Kalamata Olive Tapenade (also AR) for a party. This was hands-down the favourite. Everybody love it. Served it with slices of white and whole-grain baguettes.

Hungarian Braided White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
A really beautiful white bread with a tender crumb. Any chance the ingredients should read '2 egg yolks, 1 egg'? Just wondering because in the directions it says 'egg' and 'egg yolks.' My dough was still really sticky after all 5 cups of flour were in so I had to add more (1 cup or so). Could have been that the eggs I used were really large or the type of flour I used. I made 2 loaves instead of 1 and they were still a decent size. I used a shorter baking time, as so many before have recommended. Thank you for sharing!

Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
This was good. I cut the sugar by half. As another reviewer mentioned, the amount of sugar you use can depend on the sweetness of the apples and personal preference. It will be nice to have this in the freezer ready to use.

Vibrant Vegetarian Purple Borscht

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I didn't add as much water as called for, also didn't read the directions carefully enough and chucked out the beet water AND the kidney bean juice. It still turned out deliciously purple. Very hearty and a great way to use up the veggies coming out of the garden right now. I didn't have cabbage, so I substituted kale. This recipe could easily be made vegan by using vegetable oil instead of butter and using a vegan sour cream substitute. UPDATE 14.7.2012 - my beet greens were still nice, so I threw those in too at the end with the kale. Everything was fresh from the garden except the mushrooms and beans, so no bouillion cube needed :)

Savory Onion Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Tasty and easy. Would be very easy to try different cheeses, add different herbs/spices etc. Will be making this more often.

Homemade Fresh Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
Really easy to do and tasty! UPDATE: While doing a little cheese making research on the internet, it came to my attention that this is probably closer to 'queso blanco' (acid used is vinegar or lemon juice) than 'queso fresco' (made with rennet).

Red Currant Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
This is good. It's a great use for red currants. If you skip the dough chilling/resting and press it into the pan instead of rolling it out, it's pretty quick and easy too.

Absolutely the BEST Rich and Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing Ever!

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
Good. Didn't have buttermilk in the house, so subbed with yogurt. Still nice and creamy. The vinegar gave it enough tang.
