Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2001
I was just looking for a quick fix for Saturday dinner, when I bumped into this recipe. I recommend this recipe to all my friends and relatives now. It is an absolutely fantastic food combination, very flavourful and quick to cook. If you had 10 stars rating, I would give it 12 :) Nothing to add.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
This is an absolutely perfect, easy-to-make, comfort food. I cooked my very first Thanksgiving feast - had to find good fail-proof recipes, and I decided to include this recipe in my TG dinner menu. It was an absolute hit, and everyone had seconds, and thirds, and carried some leftovers out with them. Highly recommend it, also because it is very easy to make.

Elegant Turkey Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
This stuffing sounded very tempting from the ingredient list. I have cooked it for my first Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone liked it very much. I would suggest less sausage - sausage overwhelms everything else, and it needs to be in balance with other flavours. Othewise, I am very pleased.

Sweet Potato Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
I agree with the above reviews in that the recipe is good, but leaves it wide open for variation. Spicing it up is always a good idea. My selections were lemon zest, cinnamon, ground ginger (just a pinch). I would add nutmeg if I had any. I think ground cardamom would work nicely in the crust to make it extra festive. I should try that next time. And there will be next time, I am sure. Baked for about 55 minutes over a water filled roasting pan. No issues, no cracks. As for the topping, I had to improvise because this cake goes to a school Thanksgiving feast, and they forbid nuts of any kind. I used 2 packages of fresh cranberries, sugar, 1 lemon juice, cooked them all together, and added a bit of butter and cream in the end to make it look silkier and not like jam. Great post, thanks!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
Excellent recipe. Regarding the serving sizes - I scaled back by 1/3, and still produced 15 5" pancakes. So beware of quantities. I also had to add a bit more milk (1/4 cup of so) after I mixed everything, because the mixture was a bit too thick and didn't spread evenly on the skillet. But that always differs based on flour quality. Thanks!

Carrot and Ginger Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Excellent flavor and thickness. I used coconut oil instead of olive oil, roasted pumpkin instead of butternut squash, and stock instead of water.

Fresh Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2003
Excellent flavour. However, way too much dressing. I used only half of the dressing I made, and it was too much also. You may want to cut the sugar in half - too sweet otherwise.
