Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Boring flavour. Needs more zip and zing. Thank goodness I added chocolate chips. Will keep looking for an orange loaf recipe.

Jerre's Black Bean and Pork Tenderloin Slow Cooker Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
I used the recipe as inspiration for the ingredients I had on hand and it is super tasty. (My changes - generous amounts of mexican seasoning blend, and chili powder. A whooole lotta garlic, big fat cloves sliced up. Pinto beans with jalapenos. Fire roasted tomatoes with adobo seasoning. Chopped fresh pasilla pepper as well as the red pepper. Fresh chopped serrano peppers.) Will definitely do this again.

California Jalapeno Trout

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
I have served fresh mango salsa with other fish before - char, salmon - but this is the first time stuffing and baking. Turned out well. Saved some of the fresh salsa to serve on the side just in case. Good stuff. About 3 1/2 stars.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
The quinoa went mushy with this amount of liquid. Without the addition of other ingredients, this would have been pretty flavourless. Won't make again.

Rhubarb Margarita

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
I don't understand how Jeannine gets 3 cups of liquid from this recipe using 1/2 cup water and the natural juices of only 4 cups of rhubarb? (Her clarifications are posted under the reviews and she's obviously recommending making 2 margs at a time with 1/2 ingredients each time). Sigh. Okay, aside from that, I used freshly squeezed lime juice instead of water to cook my rhubarb, and agave syrup instead of sugar. Delicious. (I shouldn't rate it 'cause I changed it, but it's better than giving it no stars.)

Teriyaki Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
I couldn't find my sake so I used all mirin like someone suggested. It tasted great like that. But I also listened to other reviews and added fresh ginger, crushed garlic and dried chili peppers. Very tasty, will make again. Look forward to finding my sake! Edit: I marinated my cooked meatballs in this and they were a disaster. We ate some because we were hungry, but threw the rest out. Tasted awful. Next time I'll use the sake and not leave the meatballs in the sauce.

Maple Teriyaki Salmon Barbeque

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
I made this, adding fresh ginger, and as a marinade it was still pretty subtle. Not the fullest flavour for the buck. HOWEVER once the salmon was grilling I boiled the marinade for about 10 minutes or so and served it as a sauce at the table. The sauce was a hit. The boiling brought out and concentrated the flavours, so I would recommend serving it that way. Everyone had seconds.

Blueberry Lemon Loaf

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
My lemon was monstrous, so I had enough zest, but probably too much juice. It took an hour and 20 to bake and is very dense, maybe because of the extra liquid factor. Delicious though. I had to change the recipe because I don't eat wheat or cow dairy, so I used a mix of brown rice flour and oat flour, as well as vanilla goat yogurt instead of sour cream. I'll probably make this again because it's so flavourful, even though I expected it to be a lighter texture. Edit: Okay, with only two slices left in the loaf, I have changed my rating to 5 stars from 4 and will say absolutely will make again. The flavour is fantastic. I think the vanilla in the goat yogurt adds some extra goodness. Tonight I have made the same recipe with raspberries. It's in the oven now...

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
I won't make this again. Like another reviewer said, soggy and greasy. It looked unappealing with the butter slick on it, and was mushy. AND it was way too sweet. I followed the recipe exactly. Too bad, it was truly easy to put together. Sigh.

Raspberry Lemon Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
I thought they were really good fresh, but didn't stay fresh tasting very long - the berries made the cake around them kinda mushy, and they didn't taste that great out of the freezer for the same reason.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
I've made this a coupla times now and think it's great. I use fresh garlic cloves instead of garlic salt, and chipotle salsa instead of tomato sauce for extra flavour.

Habanero Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
I did not remove the heat - why use habs then? - and oh my gosh, that's a hot little recipe. Used 10 largish habaneros with seeds removed, and raw sugar, because that's what I had. Compellingly fiery and sweet. But holy tamoley, they've got a kick. Not for the faint of heart or stomach in their unaltered state.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
I didn't think they had much flavour, were pretty bland as is. Also, personal taste, I don't like a soft cookie and that's what these are. I was just desperate for a banana recipe that wasn't bread, so I made them. They did not travel well, as stated, but were crumbly, soft and fell apart. Not a great cookie to eat while you're driving! But outside of personal taste, I still can't give them more than 3 stars without playing with the recipe. Back to the drawing board.....

Best Beef Dip Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
It was okay. I used all beef broth instead of water to increase the flavour, but it was still just okay. Next time I'll use some of the suggestions to bump up the taste, but I'm not in a hurry to make it again the same way.

Grilled Cilantro Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
Not sure what the whole 5 star fuss is about. I made it exactly except marinated it for about an hour before putting it on the BBQ. The taste was just okay, subtle. Honey is expensive and I didn't get a lot of bang for my buck. It was boring. I'm not going to make it again.

Seven-Minute Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
I was a little loosey-goosey with measuring the corn starch, plus I was using rice milk which is thin like skim milk, so it didn't set up thick like pudding. Oh well. However, it was delicious. I added nutmeg and a wee bit of cinnamon while cooking. I used a suggestion and whirred all the ingredients in a blender and then heated it on the stovetop. I served it like a parfait, in a wine glass, with banana slices in the middle. On top I put some Dinette cake from this site, added more pudding and topped it with chocolate sauce. OMG! Good! The pudding had just cooled to room temperature, and I warmed the cake a little just before putting it in. I'll make the parfaits again, next time with berries.....mmmmm

Dinette Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I've made this twice now and it's a good recipe. Fast, easy and tasty. I used raw sugar because that's what I had and along with vanilla, it made the cake taste and look delicious. A nice golden colour. I also used butter instead of shortening. Served it with warm, 'from scratch' lemon pie filling spooned over top and fresh strawberries and blueberries. It was a hit. Edit: Have made it 3 times now. Love it with the raw sugar and butter. This time I made the Seven Minute Pudding from this site, and served the pudding with sliced bananas and this cake, topped with chocolate sauce, parfait-style. Good stuff!! I love this recipe. So easy and versatile. This is a coarse-crumbed cake, like others have mentioned who didn't like it. So if you're looking for a finely textured cake, this wouldn't be it. I think of it as sort of the peasant version of cake. But mine have all been moist.

Oriental Cold Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
It was good. I followed the recipe exactly. The dressing was flavourful, but the salad itself was kind of boring. Next time I make it I'll add broccoli florets and....things. Peppers? Frozen peas? Not sure what. But I want the noodle to veg ration to be more interesting. Then maybe it gets more stars!

Stuffed Hot Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
I thought the dish is tasty but loaded with the meat and cheese it's quite rich and heavy. I used a homemade mexican chorizo and even with the oil drained I thought it was a bit oily tasting. I served it with a mixed grain rice, corn and black bean side and homemade salsa, which helped cut the cheesy meatiness of it all. Don't think I'll make it again.
