Eggplant Au Gratin

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
This is FANTASTIC as a pasta sauce! I baked it in a small casserole dish, more than doubled the spaghetti sauce and used various white cheeses. Served over parpadelle pasta with a nice bottle of red and my hubby could NOT stop raving! He ranked it in one of my top ten dishes overall.

Sundried Tomato Tapenade

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Simply delicious! So easy to make and when used as a bruschetta topper, this is a quick and impressive party dish! I used fresh basil and let sit for 6 hours before spooning on top of lightly oiled bruschetta pieces that then baked at 350 for 6 minutes. Even my 4-year-olds were raving!

Wakula's First Attempt at Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
This was like a really hearty minestrone. I omitted the cabbage and celery but threw in a zucchini. A wonderful warming soup for a cold day!

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
FIVE STARS! Used boneless skinless chicken breast and put in the oven during the last 25 minutes. Real rosemary is crucial to the success of this dish. Used real crushed garlic as well. Delicious!

Cabbage and Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
If using soy sauce, as other suggest, omit the salt for seasoning as it makes it too salty. Yummy dish and so easy to make! I was confused about when the dumplings were ready but it took about five minutes in boiling water.

So right! These were the perfect blend of chewy and chocolate-y! I received huge compliments on these brownies.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
I think the sour milk gives these a bit of an "off" taste but they were still good. Next time I'll try just regular milk to see if that makes a difference. Made them as cupcakes and baked for 20 minutes. The sprinkled chocolate and walnuts on the tops makes a nice presentation.

Naan

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
Perfect recipe! Labor-intensive (as any bread is) but worth making extras. I used a griddle pan and it worked perfectly. To heat up the next day, just put in a lightly oiled frying pan at a med heat. Served with Butter Chickpea Curry from this site and it was great!

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
This is a fantastic mild curry recipe if you've never tried Indian food before. Start off with the recipe as is (but use coconut milk instead of reg milk and stewed tomatoes instead of soup) and then experiment with the spice factor to find the right "heat" for you. We like a bit of medium spice and will add medium curry spices the next time around. Added cauliflower and it was a nice addition. Great to heat up the next day -- just pour in some leftover coconut milk and put it on the stove to warm.

Sweet Maple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
Way too sweet for our liking. Followed the instructions of other reviewers and double-dipped the chops (oatmeal/cream mixture/oatmeal again) -- that worked really well. Also listened to others and reduced the cream and oil by more than half. I think next time I'd try half the maple syrup to see if that make it less sweet because pork chops should not taste like candy!!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
Don't know what the big fuss was about with people saying it would be too much work without a food processor! Just make sure to grate the butter like the recipe says and then it crumbles easily into a nice dough. I think it took me all of five seconds! Great base recipe -- can't wait to add some fresh fruit to this one.

Brunch Strata

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
Really great recipe! My (German and British) breakfast guests had never heard of a strata before and unfortunately, saw me mixing it all together while still in raw state...the looks on their faces were priceless and they both took "conservative" amounts once it was on the table. But they both came back for seconds and raved about how good it was!! Used extra peppers, onions and gouda instead of cheddar. Substituted sausage for the ham and it was wonderful. Also managed to fit it in one 9x13 pan with no problem (?).

Delightful Apple Spice Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
somewhat plain -- could be that I didn't have allspice and used cloves/nutmeg replacement. would be better with sugar sprinkled on top.

Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
**THANK YOU** Angela C. for the amazing suggestion of using this base recipe but omitting the cinnamon and adding white chocolate and craisins! I added 1 cup of craisins and 4 sq of chopped white chocolate and then sprinkled finely grated white chocolate and white sugar on top before the final bake. YUM YUM YUM!!!!

No-Bake Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
All in all, these are super yummy cookies. But I had to alter this recipe as there wasn't enough liquid and it was hardening before I could even get them spooned out. If you find this happens to you, just add a bit of warmed milk slowly until it's the right consistency. You want them to be sticky, not runny!

Sour Cream Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
Fab recipe! I used jarred pesto in lieu of spinach/parmesan and cut up b/s chicken breast into quarters. I was a little confused about how all these "layers" were suppose to work together but just make sure to not over-mash the potatoes and it works out well. You want to have small potato chunks as a base. My hubby was drooling from the aroma of the kitchen and thankfully, the taste lived up to it!
