Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
this stuff is fabulous! i made it the other day and threw it in the fridge, i just had a bowl and it is amazing! i followed the recommendations made by BANSREEPARIKH (thank you!) but used beef stock (what i had on hand) and the juice of a whole lime (i like things tart)---it came out great! i'll be making this time and time again

Chops in Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
this ticks all the boxes: stuff you have on hand, easy to make, quick to make, and delicious! my husband raved about the gravy...only thing i added extra was a bit of garlic powder---brilliant dish we'll definitely have again!!!

Asian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
oh my oh my, this is good!!! made only a few minor changes (used Splenda Brown instead of brown sugar, and onion powder when i discovered i'd forgotten to buy green onions), left it in its marinade for 4 days, and grilled it---it was brilliant! both my husband and i loved it, and it will be appearing on our dinner table again! thank you!!!

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
i really liked this---i made it specifically to use for fajitas, but i got sidelined and it ended up in the marinade in the fridge for 5 days! we grilled it last night and it was extremely moist, tender, and juicy (except the end bits that my husband, the grill-master, burnt)...i had stomach surgery 3 months ago and am not supposed to eat tough meats, but i had no problem whatsoever with this, and the flavour was lovely...next time i make it, i'll forget about it again and leave it to marinate for 5 days!!

Indian Tandoori Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
the search for a home tandoori marinade goes on: this was not "It"...authentic it might be, but i want it to taste like the tandoori chicken we used to get at our Balti takeaway place in England...the flavour of this marinade was far too mellow, altho the chicken was nice and moist...so the search continues

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
BEST HOMEMADE CHILI EVER!!! i have made this countless times, and passed the recipe on to dozens of people and everyone who had tasted it has made it their standard chili recipe...only things i change are: i use crushed tomatoes and diced tomatoes, and omit the sugar...i use a little extra cayenne just because i like stuff quite hot; this is a brilliant recipe!!! thank you!!

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
this came out very greasy---i love cheese, but this was a bit off-putting...for the second try, i substituted EggBeaters, used a combination of fat free cheddar and fat free Monterey Jack cheeses, more onion, and a bit of minced garlic---that came out great, and not greasy at all

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
the flavour of this hummus was pretty good---i added more lemon juice and more garlic to suit...the texture, however, was very dry, no matter how much i processed it; i should have saved some of the liquid from the chickpeas and used that---i'll know for next time

Easy Never Forgotten Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
nope, this wasn't it...i made this and it went bad sitting in the fridge because nobody liked it...i think it's because it's "authentic" guacamole---our unsophisticated NorthEastern palates want the stuff you find in Mexican chain restaurants, and this isn't it...i tried more salsa, some onion, some lime but nothing helped...sadly, the search for guacamole goes on

Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
fantastic!!! i used boneless/skinless chicken thighs and left them to marinate for 2 days (kind of forgot about them) and then did them on the grill---wonderful! my husband raved about them...i think next time i'll add a bit of citrus (lime or lemon), and more garlic and ginger as well as some heat from somewhere...these are going to be a staple at our house!!! thank you!

Cucumber Raita

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
wow this was good: really, really good! i have been craving Indian food since we moved from England to the US, and this was reminiscent of the raita we used to get at our local Indian take-out restaurant in England! i used fatfree yogurt and added some fat free sour cream for body, and used Splenda instead of sugar: this will become a staple "must have in the fridge" at our house! thank you!!!!

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
i had never made corned beef and cabbage before and was a little nervous at the start, but this turned out wonderfully! it needed quite a bit of salt and pepper at the table, but otherwise was perfect---i will definitely make this again!

Easiest Teriyaki Marinade Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Not overly impressed with this recipe...I used boneless pork loin chops and marinated them overnight, and they still didn't taste of anything---they weren't bad, they just weren't...well, teriyaki-y! Unfortunately, I've got chicken breasts in the freezer in this marinade, so it gets a second chance, but I don't think I'll use it again unless the chicken turns out spectacularly.

Broccoli Cheese Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
not bad, but not overly exciting, either...i seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper, and added a clove of crushed garlic to the soup/milk...the flavour wasn't as cheesy as i was expecting, so a little disappointing...the chicken breasts i used were HUGE, so i extended the cooking time to 50 minutes (not sure what size chicken breasts cook in 20 min)...overall, while my husband enjoyed it, i would say it was a bit bland and unexciting, but easy.

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
these were very good, a review only enhanced by the novelty of them! i find them a bit dense, but i don't mind that, and they improve the second day...i would, however, recommend sifting the cake mix as the lumps stay in the cooked muffin and are unappealing...these are lovely with butter, jam, or cream cheese!

Campbell's® Golden Chicken with Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
not bad, not bad at all: the sauce was delicious, if a bit thin, but it lacked a richness of flavour (not sure how to remedy that)...nice and tart, tho, and the chicken was amazingly tender...i added some salt (very little) and pepper (a good amount), and only used 4 breasts (just cooking for me and the hubby) so we ended up with tons of sauce---nice on leftover noodles!! it was a hit at our house, so i'll make this again!

Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I made these for a Christmas Eve dinner, and they went over HUGE---people loved them and couldn't believe they were so simple to make...I used Bob Evans breakfast sausage (1 lb) but next time I think I'll try the spicier sausage or add some salt and pepper...anyway, these were great!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
i can't decide how i feel about these cookies...the taste is lovely, but i'm unsure about the texture: they're a bit crumbly...but, hey, they're flourless, essentially sugarless (i used Splenda), and are disgracefully easy to make...i'll be using this recipe many more times!
