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.

Canadian Butter Tarts

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
Sweet and delicious. The coconut and walnuts add a but of crunchiness to the filling. Best butter tart recipe yet.

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
Cheese and potatoes - how can one go wrong? Made this recipe exactly as written and turned out fantastic. Less liquid than regular scalloped potatoes, but delicious nonetheless.

Newfoundland Jigg's Dinner

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
Should have read the reviews before trying to make this one. Although corned beef is completely different than salt beef, it's also completely tasty and can be used in the dinner instead if desired, although this makes it more English/Irish than Newfoundlander. I also had a hard time even finding corned beef, but eventually I did find some at a specialty meat market.

Chalau

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
I thought this was fantastic! Made it with full oil too. Great as is, but may try the tomatoes and even potatoes as suggested in other comments for a different taste. Also, might want to pump up the cayenne as it wasn't very spicy dish at all.

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
Best Tourtiere recipe yet! Very tasty combination of spices, strong, but not strange or anything. Excellent instructions.

Vegetarian Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
I don't know what the previous reviewer did, but I had no problem with the amount of batter. Just enough for one cake. The cake is fairly dense, but not incredibly so. This isn't really a desert though you could westernize it with icing if you wanted to turn it into one.

Sherry Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
The peanut butter is the secret ingredient in this recipe. Coconut milk is very fatty and can be substituted with milk or yogourt but definately tastes best with coconut.

Awesome Rhubarb-Strawberry Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
This pudding was a hit at a pot luck I attended recently. I couldn't find fresh rhubarb, so I ended up using rhubarb pie filling, which did the trick.

Honey-Garlic Moose Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
Moose is impossible to get unless you know someone who hunts. If anyone knows of a game farm that raises moose meat for commercial sale, please let us know! Had to substitute ground elk instead. Unfortunately, my sauce turned out far too thick to pour evenly over the meatballs. Very tasty though!

Jambon au Sirop D'Erable

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This recipe is really great! I couldn't find smoked pork shoulder, so I settled for the un-smoked variety, although a local butcher offered to make some for me. After 2.5 hours of boiling the pork was so tender it was falling apart with my fork. The maple taste is subtle. I'm kind of unsure what to do with the broth since it tastes fantastic as well - maybe I can turn it into some kind of soup. ** UPDATE: My wife found the broth WAY too sweet for her liking.**

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.

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.

Durian Puree Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
The durian flavour comes out well! Although my Malaysian wife and her family were quite repelled at the idea of durian in a cheesecake, I thought it tasted not bad at all. Durian is definitely an acquired taste and this is a good way to try it. Mine also didn't turn out quite as yellow as the picture submitted with the recipe.

Apple Coffee Cake With Brown Sugar Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
I cooked mine for the full 1.5hrs at 375 and it turned out quite dark (should have read the reviews beforehand - see picture). In the end though, the cake turned out very tasty. Not too dense, but not light either. Haven't tried the brown sugar sauce yet, but it sounds like a winner.

Brown Sugar Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
Makes a thick sauce perfect with the Apple Coffee Cake recipe also on this site. Perhaps I'll half the brandy next time as it was a bit strong and aromatic. I wouldn't want to cut it out though as it really adds a distinctive flavour to the sauce.
