Company Couscous

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
I've made as is, and it's fabulous. The second time I left out the cherry tomatoes and instead added small slices of chanterelle mushrooms instead. OMG amazing. Served with ratatouille on top and roasted chicken on the side for us meat-eaters.

I make this to use as an oil/butter substitute while baking. It's quite good! Also delicious on raisin, cinnamon toast :)

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
It was very good - everyone enjoyed their pepper! Definitely blanch the peppers first for better texture.

West Indian Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
Dish was alright - not a big hit with me, though the bf liked it. I did cut down on the bbq sauce a bit though. After reading some of the reviews I'd just like to add that West Indian refers to the West Indies aka the Caribbean. NOT India. And yes, West Indian food is a nice mixture of Indian, African, Chinese, Persian, Spanish, French and English cuisine. :)

Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
I've made this dozens of times (without the frosting) and it's wonderful! I've made a few changes of over time: the recipe scales back to 12 cupcakes well; brown sugar tastes better than white sugar; butter instead of shortening works well; a mix of butter and oil instead of shortening also yields a moist cake; using milk + vinegar works well; using plain milk works well; using almond milk was surprisingly delicious too! A super versatile recipe if you need to play around with it. 5 stars as is AND an extra 5 stars for also being a great base to work with!

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
I have no idea why I've never rated this recipe! It's been a staple in our home for about 4 years now. An amazing, easy salmon dish.

Orange Dream Cake

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
This cake was amazing. Seriously. It was moist, fluffy, the flavour was fabulous and both my bf and I adored it. I really like a more intense orange flavour, so I used the zest from a whole orange and added a orange juice/sugar glaze instead of the frosting. I also left out the lemon zest. Next time though, I will definitely cut down on the lemon juice as I found it left a biting aftertaste.

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
Made as written the first time and it was okay-good. Took JDowning's advice the second time I made this and started with pancetta and upped the vodka a bit - it made a huge delicious difference!

Kheer (Rice Pudding)

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
I really enjoyed this! The guys, however, did not and I was left to eat the entire pot of kheer. I think they just didn't like the flavour of cardamom (which is too bad, because it's delicious!).

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Probably one of the best wheat breads I've ever baked. I cut down on the honey, a fair bit - used just over 1/3 cup total and brushed the crust with a bit of thinned honey just before it was done baking. Dough holds up well to freezing.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
It was pretty good. I used only 2 tbs of butter and made 2 quiches. I froze one for future use and it held up well.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
Delicious! I used 1 large eggplant, 3 zucchinis, 1.5 onions, 1 pkg of sliced mushrooms, 1 green pepper, 1 red pepper, 1 yellow pepper, and 1 can of diced roma tomatoes. My zucchini and peppers slices were quite large and took about 1 hour to cook fully. Everything barely fit in a 9x13" baking dish. I covered for most of the baking, and uncovered for last 20 minutes or so to get rid of some liquid. Served with wild mushroom couscous and roasted chicken.

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I used this as a base for sausage and cheddar muffins. I did have to tweak it to adjust for savory, rather than sweet, muffins. I cut the sugar to 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and used just a splash more than 1/4 cup of oil (just to make sure it stayed moist). I used 1/2 cup of sausage and a full cup of shredded cheese. The mix was getting a bit too dry so I cut back to 1 3/4 cups of flour. I baked at 375 for about 18 min. The result was moist and tasty. The texture was also perfect for savory muffins - less cake-like and more bread-like. Would definitely try the recipe as is for sweet muffin recipes though :)

Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
Used slightly less sugar, maybe 1.5 tbs cornstarch, and 2 tbs whisky (at end of cooking) in place of the orange juice. Followed the rest of the directions and ended up with a LOVELY slightly tart raspberry-whisky sauce (whisky was very mild) that was the perfect compliment to the Flourless Chocolate Cake recipe.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
Decreased sugar to 1/2 cup, used 18 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and only 5 eggs. I did take some shortcuts. First, I added the chocolate chips to the saucepan of water, sugar, and salt so that it would melt thoroughly with it. I through in all of the butter at one time and stirred a lot until it melted. Removed all of this from low heat, tempered my 5 eggs with a little of the batter thus far and then slowly poured in the egg while my cake beater was on constantly. I used a spring form pan with parchment paper at the bottom and greased entire surface with butter. I did not use a water bath during the baking process. I did get distracted and let the cake cook for 49 minutes rather than 45. Was worried that it would be overdone, but it wasn't! Topped with powdered sugar (that disappeared too quickly) and raspberries with a raspberry-whisky sauce on the side. Highly recommend this cake for all important birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and other days that end in the letter "y".

Black Magic Cake

Amazingly delicious. Cut the recipe in half, baked in a 9" round pan, covered in chocolate frosting and garnished with strawberries. Very simple, quick, and wonderful. Thank you for posting the recipe!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
I thought these were the best thing ever until I ran out of peanut butter. I ended up having to use about 2-3 tbs of almond butter to make up the deficit and then threw in a handful of peanut butter chips as well. An amazing soft peanut-almond butter cookie. The guys and I ate the entire tray in 1 night.

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
In a word: fabulous. A very forgiving and versatile recipe. I've even used it to stuff small pork roasts along with provolone, red pepper and onion slices etc. Thank you for posting!
