Horseradish Cream Cheese Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2014
I really liked this - it has a nice creaminess which the horseradish counterbalances. I'll add a little more horseradish and a pinch of salt next time, out of personal taste. It's a nice variant of the devilled egg!

Shakshuka Middle Eastern Breakfast Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2014
I followed the author's suggestion and added some spices to this - dry roasted cumin and paprika before adding the onions. It turned out to be a wonderfully tasty, fragrant dish. As written, it's excellent, but it's also delicious finished under the broiler with some mozzarella on top, and if you don't have zucchini, finely diced eggplant works well, too. A beautiful and simple recipe, thanks for posting!

Lemon Garlic Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
I loved this recipe. I'm a hummus lover to start with, but the extra lemon adds a lightness & freshness to the usual flavour. Definitely a keeper.

Baked Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
Wow! I loved this! I nearly skipped the toasting of the sesame seeds out of sheer laziness, but very glad I didn't! This was so flavoursome & the meat stayed really moist. The only thing I did differently was to add a bit of chilli powder to the sesame/flour mix... Just because I have to, with this chilli addiction I have. It's still really tasty without!

Paleo Lemon Tarts

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2013
Wow, these are tart! I don't mind wincing a bit when eating a lemon tart, so they were OK. However, I think I could have cut back on the lemon rind just to reign it in a little bit. I added a little agave to balance things out. As for the crust - I read that clarified butter is cleared on the paleo list, so I did substitute 1 tablespoon for one of the tablespoons of lemon juice to avoid it being too tough. Turns out, it's lovely! I'll keep experimenting with the filling - it's almost there! Thanks for posting :)

Marinated Black-Eyed Pea Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2013
Healthy, simple, vinegary, and delicious. I doubled the cumin because I love it so much & dry roasted it in a pan before adding it to the salad to release a bit more flavour. A great side dish, or a healthy lunch. Thanks for posting!

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
Wow, this is a good 'un! I was looking for recipes that were lower GI & this fit the bill - you can even trade out that tiny teaspoon of sugar for agave. Not only is it healthy, but uber tasty, too. Nice & spicy!

Lebanese-Style Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2013
I really liked this. I dry-roasted the spices in a pan before adding them, just to release a bit more flavour. Also, I'd add the lemon juice to taste, as the lemons we get here in my neck of the woods are very acidic/bitter - I'd go gradually! Wonderful recipe, thanks!

Vietnamese Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
I loved this recipe! The dressing is delicious - I did reduce the amount of fish sauce & increase the sesame oil however, as a matter of personal taste. That was the only change & I guess some would prefer it with a stronger, salty fish sauce flavour. Better to just play around with it, & taste it before you mix it all in! Lovely recipe, will make this again.

Brown and Wild Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
Nice recipe. Made just as it is, it's a sweet, tasty salad. I might cut back on the cranberries next time, if I want something a little less sweet, but as a side dish, it's fine as is. I used balsamic vinegar in place of raspberry, which worked really well.

Creamy Beet With Dill Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
Love the dill/beet/caraway flavours! Don't skip toasting the caraway seeds - makes a bit difference to the flavour. Used chevre instead of a boiled egg for garnish. Wonderful soup!

Creamy Corn Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Wow! I steamed a couple of large crab claws & added them (broken up) at the end, rather than the chicken suggested in the recipe header. I also prefer a smoother texture, I blended most of the soup as other reviewers suggested (before adding the crab). So creamy & filling, with loads of flavour. Wonderful!

Fresh Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
Really delicious, nice chewy texture. Next time I could even add more ginger for a really zingy cookie!

Carrot Apple Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
Wonderful soup of you're after something filling & healthy. I agree with other reviewers though, the flavours were a bit understated for me. I doubled the onions & added a tablespoon of fresh, grated ginger towards the end of cooking, which gave it a little bit of heat! Overall, I liked it enough to make it again with the changes.

Pumpkin Cheesecake in a Gingersnap Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
This is a perfect recipe. One of the best things I've ever eaten! I added a tablespoon of grated, fresh ginger to the cheesecake mixture, which works if you're cooking for those who love ginger :)

Dana's Cream Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
At first I thought this was a bit bland, but the basil flavor really developed after a few hours in the fridge. I'll make it in advance next time. Nice recipe, thanks :)

Creamy Crab and Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
I must say I was looking for a dip that used crab, not imitation crab (I'm not really sure what that is, actually!). So I used the same quantity of canned crab lump meat. I thought it might be a bit acidic with all that artichoke, so I cut back on it a little. Other than that, the only thing I changed was the addition of a tablespoon of seeded mustard & it was delicious. Very creamy & crabby, with enough zing to make it really more-ish!

Octoberfest Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
This is fantastic! I made this almost exactly as written - just added a little more mustard to avoid too much sweetness, and left out the beef stock (put in more beer for more liquid). With a dark ale this tastes rich & hearty, with the mustard really lifting the flavour... And the gravy! Pshew! Yum.

Honey Mustard BBQ Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
Great recipe! In place of fresh tarragon I used tarragon dijon, which worked fine. Other than that, I doubled the wine and slow baked the chops (rather than grill). A really nice combination of flavors. SO delicious!

Lemon Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
A nice, easy cheesecake recipe - I especially like the light texture. I didn't have lemon yoghurt, so added more lemon juice & about a tsp zest, plus two eggs, rather than egg replacement. It was really tangy & lemony! I would double the quantity for a homemade crust in a 9" pan for a higher cheesecake. Thanks for posting :)
