Oma's Rhubarb Cake

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Easy, simple and delicious! I didn't have sour cream on hand so I substituted plain yogurt. I used 3/4 cup of packed brown sugar instead of white sugar (personal taste preference) and also added 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts to the topping. I'll make this again. UPDATE May 8, 2011: If anyone is interested in cutting back calories - I've made this using 3/4 cup sugar in the cake and only half the topping. Still delicious with a crusty crunchy top. This may depend on how sour your rhubarb is. Also, try using a cup of red currants in place of 1 cup of rhubarb.

Cucumber Raita

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
The subtle flavours in this raita give a nice cooling balance to spicy meals. Served it with veggie samosas, Spicy Tomato Chutney (from this site) Chicken Jalfrezi (from this site) and naan bread. Everyone enjoyed it. It would also make a nice salad dressing or veggie dip.

Spicy Tomato Chutney

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
This makes a really nice chutney. I made half a recipe and it still made a huge amount (1 litre). I only had Thai curry paste, so I substituted 1 tsp of garam masala. No mixed spice either, so used the spices recommended in the editor's note. It went very well with the veggie samosas we ate. Everyone enjoyed it.

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
I used my own tzatziki recipe, but the chicken was really tasty. Be careful - balsamic vinaigrette is NOT the same as balsamic vinegar! You can make your own - there are some recipes on this website. I used the Syrian Bread recipe from this site for the bread. Excellent!

Traditional Gyro Meat

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Tasty. I don't have a loaf pan, so I just formed the meat into a log and baked it. It got good reviews.

Syrian Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
I was quite satisfied with the results. Not all of the pitas puffed up uniformly, but that's error on my part, not the recipe's. I made the dough by hand as I don't have a bread machine. UPDATE: Made them again, every one of them puffed up. 5 stars!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Great recipe. I only added a teaspoon of vanilla. Also - one thing I've noticed that helps my pancakes stay light and fluffy is to NOT beat the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until smooth. Just mix until the dry ingredients are wet. It doesn't matter if the mixture is still a little lumpy.

Spicy Korean Red Pepper Cucumbers

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I was looking for another side dish recipe for a Korean meal and this was perfect. Great recipe! I followed it almost exactly - I used apple cider vinegar and added a bit of sugar. I'd recommend either halving the sauce ingredients, or adding another cucumber, as this is quite saucy.

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
Really nice, quick recipe. I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon over the jam before adding the crumb topping. I didn't bother lining the pan with foil and I had no problems removing the bars.

Irish Tea Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Lovely! Nice light, buttery taste with a crisp outer crust and a soft moist crumb inside. Goes well with a cup of tea or coffee.

Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
This was okay, but it didn't wow me. It would be better with fresh garlic and fresh salmon (as others have done and suggested). Also, cut down on the cheese or serve it on the side.

Monster Cookies VI

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
These were okay but overly sweet for my tastes. The cookies were also a bit dry. That being said, everyone else absolutely loves them. UPDATE: I've made these again several times, reducing both sugars by half. They are still plenty sweet and the texture doesn't seem to suffer. The 'slice of bread in the bag' trick seems to keep them from drying out after the first day.

Raspberry Crunch Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
Like others, I added the raspberry jam directly to the batter. I used two whole eggs instead of four whites as I wasn't so concerned about cutting down on fat. I made the brownies in a muffin tin instead of a 9x9. They came out a little cakey and not as dense as I'd have liked, but were probably in the oven too long. Still delicious! A nice raspberry chocolate flavour and fragrance. No Grape Nuts on hand, so I'll be topping them with walnuts and a chocolate glaze. Good recipe :)

Teriyaki Marinade with Ginger and Garlic

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
A tasty, quick to throw together recipe. The only thing I did differently was substitute brown sugar for honey. I used it on beef, sliced up for stir fry. On the side I added some cornstarch to the marinade, cooked it, and added it to the stir fry beef and veg. The marinade was good with the beef, when thickened, made a good stir fry sauce. I like the Baked Teriyaki Chicken recipe from this site for chicken.

Tomato Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
Really good smooth tomato vegetable flavour. I followed the recipe almost exactly and added some soya protein to make it more of a 'hamburger' soup. Very good. Will make it again.

Carol's Arroz Con Pollo

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
Good base recipe but not spicy enough for my liking so I took the suggestions of others and added chili powder, cumin, and hot pepper sauce to give it more kick. I also added some frozen peas and some lime juice. I made it all in one pot and kept adding ingredients as suggested by other reviewers. I used brown basimati rice, so doubled the cooking time. I'll make this again with the modifications and will either use less liquid or add more rice to make it a little drier. Easy one pot meal.

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
This is a nice warming vegetarian soup with some substance to it. I followed some of the suggestions of Serena from a previous review (used mostly brown lentils, omitted cardamom). I used her recipe for the Ras El Hanout spice mix and substituted that for the garam masala. I didn't bother pureeing half of the soup in the blender. It was thick enough as is - more of a stew than a soup. I will make this again.

Bigos (Hunter's Stew)

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
Good recipe. A previous roommate of mine was Polish and made a variation of this often. Great on cold winter days with fresh bread.

Canadian Butter Tarts

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
Not quite the butter tart I was expecting, but still good. I used my own pastry recipe as I thought this one was a little heavy on the shortening for my taste.
