Plum Clafouti

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
I was intrigued to see how this would turn out. It's like a big fruit popover. Very similar to a Dutch baby or a German pancake. Maybe a bit cakier. I wasn't a huge fan of the lemon flavour from the lemon zest, but that's just a personal preference. This is a nice use for fresh plums and very easy to make.

French Onion Soup with Celeriac

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
This is a nice soup and the celeriac adds a nice fresh flavour to it. The onions and celeriac need to be cooked for at least 30 minutes or longer to get them nice and golden.

Spiced Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Moist, dense and quick, but other than that I wasn't overwhelmed by this bread. I didn't use all of the sugar (and am glad I didn't) because 1 cup seemed like way too much . Fragrant while baking, but the flavour in the final product wasn't that spectacular. It needs more spice. As is, this just didn't appeal to my tastes.

Creme Anglaise II

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Good directions. I made it 2 ways. For both I cut down the sugar to 1/4 cup. For the first sauce, I used 1 tsp of vanilla extract instead of a vanilla bean. For the second sauce I used the zest of one lemon instead of the vanilla bean. After the sauce was cooked, I strained out the zest. Farm eggs gave both sauces a beautiful golden colour. They were delicious served over fresh berries.

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
This was great with salmon and a side salad with homemade lemon dill yogurt dressing. Yum! I might cut back the salt to 1 tsp next time. I followed one suggestion to rub oil on the fillets instead of the melted butter. I used 1/2 oil, 1/2 butter in the frying pan. I only did 2 fillets, so I had some seasoning mix left over. I added about 2 tsps of the seasoning mix to some cubed leftover boiled potatoes, tossed everything to coat the potatoes and fried them. Excellent spicy hashbrowns! This spice mix would probably be really good on oven fries as well. Just adjust the chili powder amount to suit your heat tolerance.

Kofta Kebabs

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
Pretty tasty. I made mine half and half with ground beef and ground pork and doubled the recipe. I was worried that the spices might be overwhelming, but they weren't. I didn't bother shaping the meat into 28 (or 56!) round balls, I just formed cylinders (about 4" by 1.5") around the skewers. The double recipe made 10 portions this way. The meat was nice and moist after grilling. They were great grilled and served with pita bread, tomatoes, cucumbers and tzatziki.

Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
This was really good with just one addition. As many others before me have suggested, I added about 1/2 of a seeded and grated long English cucumber. Definitely let this sit in the fridge for a bit to let the flavours come together.

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.
