Vegan Curried Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
Maybe it was just me but this recipe did not work out for me at all. The rice needed alot more h20 than called for and the flavors were totally overpowering. Maybe i will try this again to see if it was me or the recipe, but for now i don't think this is for me!

Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
I wish i had, had all the proper ingredients for this as i'm sure it would have turned out even more wonderful than the improvised version i used. For instance i had no tumeric in the house, so i left it out. Flattened and cut the chicken into one inch strips, as well as used only 1/2 a can of coconut milk, and added an extra tomato. After putting it all together i let it to simmer for a few minutes that way all the flavors melded together... This recipe turns out fantastically... at first i thought a few of the commbinations sounded odd, but trying it was definetly worth it..... so so yummy

Cajun Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
the chicken is great, pretty basic, but great none the less. I threw it on the grill, and saved the leftovers to throw on a salad later in the week! Thanks so much!

Coffee Icing

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
Wow! really great icing recipe! I added some cocoa powder in it to give it a deeper tone, made it as directed and it came out a bit thin, but that was perfect for what i was using it for... drizzled over chocolate filled crossionts, it makes a pretty presentation and looks like you did alot of work. Thanks for this, it's really yummy!

Cilantro Egg Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
Just made this... changed it alot though. Only used onion and none of the other veggies, i also didn't use the mustard or the citrus juices. I just threw in lots of cilantro, mayo, salt, pepper, and couple dashes of hot sauce. I guess what i'm saying is this was a great starter recipe to play around with!

Maharaja Curry

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
Really good curry. I made this vegetarian and served it over brown rice. It was healthy and good tasting. I had alot of leftover sauce so i used it the next day, added some chicken broth and made a soup out of it. It tunred out great. All things considered this was a really great recipe!

Meatballs with Raisins and Honey

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
This was okay, but like other reveiwers i felt like it was missing something. I tried adding some allspice and it seemed to just enhance the sweetness, maybe something to had a bit og spiciness to contrast with the sweet would work better. Play around with it, and it could be great.

This was pretty good. Only change i made was to add in some garlic powder. If you're looking for a quick, tasty recipe, this is it.

Gourmet Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
YUMMY! I'm always on the lookout for different takes on classics, and this is fantastic! Like alot of other reveiwers suggested I added bacon ( i think this really finished the recipe) and also becuase i didn't have any cheddar in the house i used colby-jack instead ( tasted great. Try this recipe, you won't be dissapointed!

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
Fantastic recipe. I took these to a BBQ and they were gone in minutes! Only change I made to the orginal, was to up the amount of cheese to 1 Cup ( as another reveiwer suggested) and subbed milk in place of the water, also added a few additional splashes of the milk, as i wasn't happy with the consistency of the dough, with the original amount of liquid. Though even with the changes i made, i'm sure this recipe is great as written! Try it, it's easy and good!

Fried Cabbage II

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
Really good cabbage recipe!! I misread the directions, well, more like didn't read the directions and after cooking the bacon, used a tab of butter to deglaze the pan and then continued to follow the recipe as written. Turned really yummy.

Grenadian Spice Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
This a GREAT recipe!Perfect for "cake" people and non "cake" people ( being one myself!) I made a few changes based on some other reveiws. Used evaporated milk in place of the reg. ( adds creaminess and moisture)and since i had no limes in the house had to use some bottled lime juice in place of the zest.Also upped the spices, by adding the amount written on the recipe and then adding an extra half of those amounts. I was going to make an icing or glaze to go with this, but once i tasted it with some powered sugar on top, it was all over... it was too good as is to mess with any further!! I LOVE this recipe!! Perfect!

Naan

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
This is SO good, and even though it's "indian flatbread" it goes great with a variety of meals!! Also despite the recipe calling for it to be cooked on a grill ( which is traditional, and i think adds to the flavor) it can so easily be made on a grill pan or i like to use and egg pan; makes the perfect size and shape! Sugesstion: alot of other reveiwers said that the recipe called for too much flour, first time i made this i cut it down to 3 cups,that was not enough flour, the dough came out really wet, 3 and half cup seems to work perfect!

Irish Champ

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
This is a classic irish champ recipe. Half my family is irish and it tasted just like any champ i've ever had. I think it's important for people to remember when they make these recipes, that classic irish fare usually consists of basic, and usually very inexpensive ingredients. It's not supposed to come out tasting like something you ordered at a 5 star resturant... it's pub food!

Broccoli Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
This was good... not great... but good. This is the perfect recipe for when you have ingredients to use up or limited ingredients in the house. I like it alot, but wasn't blown away.

Bissara

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This is so good, and very versitile,as alot of other reveiwers mentioned if you let this thicken to a pasted it's a great spread, really tastes good on toasted pitas with some feta. But as a soup it's equally amazing. The only reason i'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because instead of water chicken broth is really essentail, it emboldens the flavors, and gives it a finished taste. Other than that this soup is perfect as is!

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
SO GOOD!!! I had to change it up a bit due to what i had in the house. I didn't have any sour cream so i followed all the other directions and subsituted a little evaporated milk and a drop of sherry for the sour cream, it turned out great. This soup really does give the warmth and heartiness of eastern european cooking...delish! I can't wait to make this again, i'm thinking subbing creme fraiche for the sour cream will give it an even more authentic euro flavor.

Savory Cheddar Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
Not bad however I will double the spices in it to give a bit stronger flavor, also I think the addition of garlic salt would be a nice touch.
