Snow on the Mountain Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2014
The lemon with the beans gives a wonderful flavour. I sauteed white onions and fresh garlic and added them to the mix. Very yummy and super healthy -- you can make double and reheat the next day.

Butternut Squash Risotto

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2014
I loved this recipe! I didn't mash my butternut squash, I boiled it and then diced it into small pieces. Added scallions, white onions and fresh chives from my garden. The white wine is the secret ingredient for this recipe. I'll try it again for sure!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
I'm giving this five stars because it is such a classic, no-fail recipe. Don't bother making this in advance if you are serving company -- the mushrooms are best if just cooked right before serving so that they have the right firmness. Very yummy! Best served with white wine -- because of the cooking sherry and marsala wine as ingredients I find you need something a little lighter than red wine to pair it with.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
These came out nicely. I would use a bit less cocoa next time.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
These turned out perfectly. I don't flatten them, added choco chips and coconut (1/4 cup). No cinnamon, extra vanilla. Perfection.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
These were excellent. I was out of brown sugar and had to use yellow golden sugar in its place, but they still turned out. I rolled the dough into smallish balls and didn't flatten them -- so the centre stays soft. I recommend these ones for sure.

Fettuccini Tomato Rustica II

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
This was amazing. I added 1 cup of red pepper tomato sauce and some (about 10) tiny baby pearl red onions to the chicken. I used goat cheese instead of feta and lemon pepper fresh linguini. Such a yummy combo. Dinner guests loved it up! Cook the chicken a day before so meal prep will be extra speedy if you have guests.

Fourteen Carat Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
This made a really nice birthday cake for my daughter. I made it with vanilla cream cheese frosting. She loved it. I used my convection oven and needed an extra 15 minutes to cook through. I used a bundt pan.

Curried Zucchini Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
Zucchini Soup has an amazing consistency and texture about it. It isn't grainy like potato-based soups can be. I find using a white onion is a must and I replaced the curry powder with thyme. My daughter is crazy about it. I add grated cheddar for her. This is a really nice soup. Some reviews suggest adding cream or milk but I prefer it as recommended. It freezes better this way.

Zucchini Risotto

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
I've tried many types of risotto but I hadn't thought of doing it with zucchini. This is great as a side dish with chicken breast. I served this with tomato chutney. Added two tablespoons of hot chilies to the recipe.

Thai Green Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
I don't include flour or soy sauce when making these curries. I like the lighter taste you get that way. I doubled the green curry. This dish is super easy to make and great if you don't have a lot of time.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
So this is the best banana bread I've ever had! I think it must be the cocoa and sour cream that make the difference. It came out beautifully. If you only want a small loaf that will keep fresh, I'd recommend cutting the recipe in half. I like that this called for so many bananas, in case you have a bunch that are over-ripe.

Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
This sounded like a good idea and I had lots of ripe avos to use. I added 1/2 cup of feta cheese, 1 cup of diced chicken breast, 10 strawberries, 3 chopped scallions, on chopped Fijian apple and some grapes. Served it as a meal on top of fresh spring lettuce. Very tasty. The avo becomes like a creamy dressing when you stir the salad.

Cowboy Cookies III

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
I should have read the other reviews before cooking these. I found the first batch flat so I added a tsp of baking powder and some shredded coconut. They tasted great, but I'd look for other recipes before using this one again.
