Pumpkin Kaya

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
My Malaysian family was initially turned off by the pumpkin colour (they are used to seeing the green version), but overall gave this kaya a good rating. The pandan flavour came through and was very tasty. Pandan is also known as screwpine and apparently as "bay thoy leaf" and can often be found in the frozen foods section of your typical asian grocery.

Brown Sugar Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
Although it took a long time to set (left it overnight), it turned out just right. Had to give it a lower rating though because everyone thought it was just TOO sweet! After eating an eighth my hands are shaking and my mind is going into hyper-drive! Could try a little more vanilla, mix in a little maple syrup or walnuts next time.

Half-hour Pudding Cake (Montreal Pudding)

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
I would say this tasted just the way it's supposed to. It's a Canadian classic. Great served warm with vanilla ice cream.

Maple Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Contrary to other reviewers my cookies turned out more crunchy, less chewy. No problem though as they're still tasty! Like others have already stated, they were also not too maple-y, but a subtle flavour comes through nonetheless. These went over great at work, but I think the guys I work with would be pleased with just about anything!

Maple Meringues

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
Turned out nice and crispy outside and soft and chewy inside, although a little hollow. Tasty though.

Maple Syrup Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
While delicious, it still turns out to be more of a cake than a pudding. No drippy maple syrup at the bottom. Delicious nonetheless. I think mixing in chopped walnuts would be good as well.

French Canadian Tourtiere

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
I'm afraid I have to give this recipe only 3 stars as I think some of the other tourtiere recipes on this site are better. Some use mashed potato and I think that would help bind the meat better. Otherwise it's a bit crumbly. The combination of spices is good, but might add more next time. I didn't think the salt was overwhelming, but could cut it down if you're worried about sodium intake.

French Onion Soup V

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
I had to knock this down a notch because almost everyone who wrote a review has changed the recipe a bit from the way it's written. I tried making it before reading the reviews and found it tasty, but lacking something Next time I'll try carmelizing the onions and do something to make the soup darker.

Nova Scotian Hodge Podge

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
As I understand it, wax beans are simply yellow beans. In any case this is such a fantastic recipe. Very tasty!

New Brunswick Lobster Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
Lobster is so darned expensive here in southern Ontario I couldn't bring myself to use it in a casserole. Instead I substituted with only slightly less expensive crab. Here's a hint: stay away from Philipps brand crab meat (product of Indonesia) - unless you like tiny pieces of shell in every bite. Other than that this is a great seafood casserole. Might try it using mixed seafoods (scallops, calamari, etc.).

Pork and Wild Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
As written this casserole makes a lot! At 2-3 times a day, this pretty much lasted me all week. But it's good. I used regular ground pork. Would have been even better if I had preseasoned it as suggested. Italian sausage would have been amazing.

Carne Con Papas

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
A good old meat and potatoes stew. Taste was excellent, but I did cut the water out almost completely. Served over rice. The local Asian grocery store had the achiote, although I had to grind the seeds myself. Its sold in a yellow package under the brand name "D&D Gold Products Corp." Santa Ana, California.

Caribbean-Style Sofrito

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
Not bad but as written makes a lot. Perhaps cut in half? Adding lime and salt also really helped spruce up this dish. Makes a tasty addition to seafood, meat, etc.

Arroz con Pollo II

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
There's something wrong with the way this recipe is written. I would suggest making the rice on the side then adding it to the chicken/veg mixture. Or add more liquid, cover and steam the rice until done.

Arroz con Leche

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Absolutely delicious. I like my rice pudding thick, so I reduced it a little more than normal. Don't worry if it looks too watery at first, the rice will soak it all up. As for the comment regarding condensed milk. Use it (one can should be enough)! Rich and sweet is what rice pudding should be.

Quebec Sugar Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
What can I say? Sugar + cream. How can you go wrong with ingredients like that? The walnuts are the only thing that makes this one different than any other sugar pie. Also, no problem solidifying after a night in the fridge.
