Make-Ahead Pizza Meat Loaves

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
This turned out to be a hit. It's a wonderful recipe for little ones who can be picky eaters, and you can modify the recipe to sneak some veggies in for them. My husband also called this the best meatloaf he's ever had...and he's a tough customer. I did make some important changes: I used a whole container of tomato sauce, rather than just 2/3 - to make it extra moist. I also used 1 extra egg. For more flavor kick and nutrition, I added chopped brocolli, and a1/2 cup of chopped garlic, as well as minced garlic. Also great served with some hot sauce for the grown ups.

Passover Zucchini-Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
I made this last night for our seder and it turned out better than expected. It was my first time buying kosher chicken, since it was the only chicken at my supermarket with the skin on. A bit on the pricey side ($7.50 for 2 large breasts), but really huge and good quality/ value for the money. I didnt vary the recipe too much. OK, maybe I did..on second thought;-) 1. I couldnt find matzoh farel, though I went to 2 supermarkets in a jewish neighborhood, and searched in the kosher section the day before passover. But for all of you worried that you dont have this ingredient, you can save money & make your own matzoh farfel at home by simply crushing about 6 pieces of seasoned matzoh (I used the egg/ onion flavored) into small pieces (about 1" each) in a zip lock bag to make 3 cups. It turned out just as good. 2. I omitted the onion powder because I didnt have any. And I added paprika for some extra spice. 3. After I put the stuffing under the skin, the chicken looked a little bland going into the oven, so I brushed HP sauce on top of each one. I think this really saved the recipe cause it came out very flavorful with the right level of moisture. I also served it with Swiss Chalet gravy (all the Canadians will know what I'm talkin' bout..) but any good gravy will do. It turned out great. I will definitely put it in my passover file for next year.

Persimmon Brunch Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
I made this tonight and it was a big hit. Makes a lovely, spicey sweet cake which is a perfect treat around the holidays. I made a few modifications. First - I doubled the amount of persimmons and used a little more butter (closer to 3/4 of a cup). So it made my cake turn out very moist but still light. I also added raisins instead of the nuts, which added to the sweetness. Will definitely make it again, and want to try it in muffin format.

Mustardy Deep Sea Perch Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2007
The bananas, I didnt mind. But the mustard sauce with the raisins was gross...too thick and ruined the fish. I threw everything out.

Haroset for Passover

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
Its a good recipe but way too much for 6 people after a big passover meal! Next time I wouls make 1/3 this amount and use 2 apples instead of 5. I added raisins and dates to this for extra flavor but it made it very sweet.

Bananas Foster Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I tried this recipe this morning and it was delicious. One warning though...it is one of those sweet, heavy breakfasts that puts you straight to sleep after. My husband, baby and I were knocked out for 2 hours after eating this. Good thing it is the long weekend. A couple substitutions I made in the syrup: I used blueberry juice instead of rum extract (as I hate the taste of rum), and maple syrup instead of the Mrs. Butterworths, and omitted the nuts. I also skipped on the whipped cream, and used Breyers double churned cookies and cream ice cream instead.

Roasted Spicy Mustard Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
Just made this tonight and it was delicious! Crispy and spicey, but not too hot. My fiance and I really enjoyed it, especially with sour cream on the side to cool the spice. I agree with the other reviewer that these do turn out hard, even after an hour baking in the oven. So we had to put them in the microwave for a couple minutes at the end to soften them up.

Asparagus and Cashews

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2007
This was great! Only thing I would add is dont let the asparagus sit too long in the oil before serving. Mine got a little greasy and soggy. But was still really good. Next time I wont use as much oil.

Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
I made this tonight and got rave reviews. I had always loathed the idea of fish tacos...dont know why, maybe I pictured a fish - head still on sticking out of a hard taco shell... Anyhow, this recipe was great and very quick and easy to prepare. We'll definitely put it into our dinner rotation.

Chocolate Chip Apple Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
It's a tasty cake, but if youre not an expert baker, I would advise making it in cupcake tins, versus the cake ring. Because its a heavy cake, this makes it alot easier to serve and consume. My cake ring also fell apart and pieces of the cake stuck to the pan. Some modifications: I also doubled the qty of apples. added brown sugar and used white chocolate chips instead of brown.

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
Thhis was great. I used red lentils, Uncle Bens tomatoe flavored rice, and also added lots of cumin. I also grilled up some cut up turkey sausage to make this more of an entree. It is definitely great with some plain yogurt mixed in.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
Made two batches in muffin form.. THe first - followed the recipe and turned out a bit dry and bland, but ok. The second, followed the suggestions of another reviewer here who recommended adding applesauce to supplement the bananas. I also added cinnamon, vanilla extract and white chocolate chips. The real stroke of genius is the apple sauce. I also stirred a little less with my electric mixer. Muffins cames out moist, banana-y, chocolatey and and delicious with the 2nd version!

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
This is a good recipe, but it lacked tang and flavor. I added shrimp, tripled the amount of ginger and added more garlic for some extra tang. Next time I will also use the regular soya sauce instead of the reduced sodium one.

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
We really enjoyed this even though we dont usually like creamy dressings. I couldnt find anchovies in the supermarket, so I used minced sardines and it turned out great. I omitted the croutons but will try them next time.
