123 Green Tea Ice Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
I was skeptical about this, especially since I got "green tea powder", not "matcha" at a chinese grocery store. But it worked out reeeeeally well.

Basil-Lime Sorbet

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
This reaches a really nice consistency in the blender, just like sorbet. However it was waaaay too sweet for me. So I blended in some more water, lime and basil (everything but the sugar). This way you can modify it to your taste. Very refreshing. Would give it 5 stars if it wasn't so sweet right off the bat.

Halloween Popcorn Pumpkins

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
There were great to look at but I personally thought the flavor was only ok. I added caramels like another reviewer said to do and I think that probably made them better. Perhaps using rice krispies and making orange rice krispie balls would be a better plan.

Moist Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Made this with a premade pie shell crust and halved the recipe, it was a perfect amount. However it didn't come out like my mom's which is almost exactly the same recipe so I don't know what happened. It wasn't really cheesy or lemony enough. Maybe I overwhipped the evaporated milk or didn't use exactly half the jello pack, who knows. Was a bit runny as well. Served with frozen berries boiled with sugar, water and cornstarch.

Double Chocolate Chip Macadamia Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This was an easy recipe and really good! Everyone said they tasted like Subway cookies. I used salted butter and halved the amount of salt I used. I also substituted walnuts for macadamia nuts because they're so expensive! Cooked for 12 minutes but I rolled somewhat large cookies and I think 10 to 11 may have been a bit better.

Absolutely Perfect Palak Paneer

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Used swiss chard instead of spinach (couldn't tell the difference). I also used about 2 pounds of it, and I could have used the full 3 if I had it. I also used paneer since I found it, and just threw it in without frying as I don't think it needs it. Next time I would substitute yogurt for the sour cream and see how it turns out.

Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
I usually make my popcorn in the oven and over the stove and it is a lot of effort. This worked out really well. I don't have an air popper so I put half a cup of kernels in a large glass bowl with a dish towel on top and microwaved for 4 minutes. I added pecans to my popcorn and made half of the caramel topping. I agree with others about your microwave, I did my caramel at 30 second intervals and it needed only 2 minutes. I also used butter instead of margarine and pancake syrup instead of corn syrup. I also accidentally put in baking powder, and then put in the baking soda since I knew it was supposed to get foamy. My messup didn't seem to affect the outcome. I then tossed it about in bowls and followed the re-microwave for 1:10 instructions. Unfortunately one of my bowls burned a little in the middle, so again, that was too long. It's crunchy, not chewy, which is fine with me for the amount of effort put in.

Om Ali

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
This thickened up more after sitting in the fridge overnight. I don't know what this is supposed to taste like but it was good, just waaaaay too much sugar. I think you could safely halve it.

Simple Salmon and Spinach Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
I made this and really didn't like it. I think with mayo it would be good but the salmon with thousand island made it sweet and fishy which I didn't like. However my boyfriend loved his so I guess it's a matter of taste.

Spicy Indian Dahl

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Made this with 2 cans of tomatoes instead of fresh. Other than that, I added A LOT of salt, plus turmeric and the other spices because as it was cooking it seemed to have no flavor. It does get better with age and it was quite good when it was finished. Only change I would say is to use less onion.

Cream of Celery Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
I love this recipe! I leave the vegetables in and use the immersion blender in the pot.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
These didn't turn out as easily as I thought. I used balsamic vinegar instead of white and added a teaspoon of vanilla. The taste was fine, but as some other reviewers said, the dough becomes really bubbly and foamy like bread and it's impossible to pour. So I added a little more milk and stirred until it became liquidy. This meant that they weren't as "fluffy" as they could have been but I have no idea how else you can pour them into the pan. I wouldn't make them again.

Quick and Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
I made some of the changes that other reviewers recommended. I added about 4 cloves of garlic, a cup of milk, some fried mushrooms and I fried the onions and because I don't like peas, I used corn. I also put it all in an ungreased casserole dish with mozzarella and breadcrumbs on top and baked at 375 for 20 minutes. It was pretty good, first time I've ever had tuna casserole but something was missing. It wasn't very flavorful, I really felt it needed maybe some celery salt or who knows. If you can get the right spices in here, it would be good. Perhaps if I did this again, I would do one can of mushroom and one can of celery soup.

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
I read the reviews first and made with the following changes. Doubled the carrot, halved the pasta (cooked it first), and used half beef and half chicken broth. I also browned the meatballs in a pan first. It was quite good, needed a bit of salt and could use more broth. However I used penne pasta, couldn't find orzo, and I used 1.5 cups (recipe would have been 3 cups) and this was quite a bit of pasta, I could have used less but the shape of penne takes a lot of room. I also used a third of a pack of frozen spinach, which was perfect.

Easy Raspberry Sorbet

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
This was very easy, a bit pricey though and hard to calculate for a Canadian. Just so others know, in Canada, our cool whip tub comes in 1L, this means you need to use 3 cups of it for this recipe, not the whole thing. Also if you get a regular can of lemonade, it's 12 ounces, so you need to use half of it. I would not make this again as I feel guilty about eating whipped oil/fructose corn syrup products, but if you are allergic to dairy, it's a great option. More lemon would be nice, maybe giving it a kick with some rind or juice, you can always taste it before you freeze it :)

Puttanesca or Kalamata Kwik Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I would rate this 5 stars except it was a bit too spicy for me. Next time I will halve the amount of crushed red pepper. My nose and eyes were running! I felt bad feeding this to my mother who has trouble with spicy foods. But the flavor was great and the ingredients are all on hand so I will try again. It didn't look like this would be enough for 4, but it really was. Alongside I cooked an entire box of whole wheat penne (also for 4) and the amounts were perfect.

Tomato and Basil Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
I made these with sundried tomatoes (8 of them). It wasn't bad but I felt it was lacking flavor a little. I like the spinach quiche recipe on here better.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
Made half of this with one pack of udon, it was more than enough sauce. I didn't add the ginger since I didn't have any. It was a bit too salty, next time I would put less soy sauce in. It was excellent though.
