Orange Roughy with Citrus Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
This was wonderful. Few mods to serve own palate were that I added a 2 tbsp of sweet chili sauce, after following instructions by others to reduce lemon and lime and increase orange. Sensational result, work with it, served over couscous, excellent

Pasta Carbonara I

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
This is a great carbonara recipe, kids and adults love, and so simple to make. I added onions to fry up with the bacon, just because I like it.

Skillet Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
This dish was great, made boring old green beans tasty. I used fresh beans, quick cooked, and added some bacon and fresh mushrooms to the onions. Used plain greek yogourt instead of sour cream...better for you, exact same taste. Was wonderful, hubby loved it too. Will definately make again and again.

Spanish-Style Oxtail Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
This is a fantastic beef stew. I like meat, and frequently find that oxtail doesn't provide enough meat for me...so I substitute with 1kg of osso bucco, which was absolutely awesome. During the last hour, I added 1 cup of barley, and a large sweet potato instead of the the two carrots. I also added a couple of tablespoons of corn flour to thicken up the broth. The results were stunning, it's the best stew of this type I've ever had I think. Will make again and again, and ensure I have cheaper white wine on hand next time (takes a whole bottle!). Was fantastic!

Ma Po Tofu

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
This recipe reminds me of some of the best ma po tofu dishes served in restaurants in Singapore. It's quite spicy though,so better to go with less cayenne pepper, and add more to your taste as it's simmering. We loved it, kids thought it a bit too spicey. Served over rice, awesome.

Chinese Style Ground Pork and Tofu

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
I've modified this dish to make a MaPau Pork/Tofu dish which I loved from restaurants in Singapore. Came out well. Doubled quantity of black bean sauce, used beer instead of sherry, added an equal amount of Japanese Rice Wine, used one regular minced onion, some mushrooms and voila! It was awesome.

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
This rice recipe is absolutely delicious all on it's own - it's truly ASIAN coconut rice. It's not suppose to taste like a pina colada, it's meant to have the subtle flavour of coconut. The other reviews ensured I alternate plans, but when I tasted it, it was heavenly and perfect, just as is...real Asian, not American Chinese.

Baked Beef Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
Followed suggestions of others, used slow cooker, floured the beef instead of using tapioca or corn starch, doubled the vegetables. I was a little concerned that the veg were sitting two inches above the liquid line, so I also added a small tin of V8 Juice and 1/4 cup of red wine....left it for the day. After 8 hours on 'combined high/low' setting, we had a wonderful enjoyable meal, in a bowl, served with garlic bread...yummm.

Mandarin Pork Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
The glaze on this pork is wonderful, everyone raved. For high quality pork, buy boneless and reduce cooking time. For low quality pork, use a slow cooker and enjoy pork that falls apart, with the sauce over rice....mmmmm. As the dish is quite rich, suggest serving with french beans, broccoli, baked potatoes or other 'unadorned' vegetables rather than creamy scalloped potatoes, as I did...made for a very rich dinner.

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
So simple, so awesome. 2 minutes preparation time means you can turn it on before you leave for work in the morning, and come home to the best smelling house. It literally falls apart in your month. I used less brown sugar and it was still incredible, we even had some for breakfast the following morning.

Appetizer Mussels

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
This dish is awesome - with modifications, as a main course. I steamed the mussels separately, while the sauce was reducing. To bulk up the sauce, I added cherry tomatoes and mushrooms (both halved), some cayenne pepper and more garlic. Once the mussels were done, I drained them and poured the sauce over the top. It was absolutely amazing and is now tops on my list for mussels. Didn't even need bread, it was substantial and yummy on it's own.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
I love chili, have tried lots of recipes. This one is really good. Made some changes. Like many others, I like my chili hearty and thick, so I substituted diced tomato cans, and fresh tomatoes for the tomato juice...it worked a trick. I also fried up the onions in advance in a little olive oil, then added the meat, rather than just adding raw onions. Nice, easy, makes loads for a busy family...leftover for lunches, great served over basmati rice.

Haddock Au Gratin

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
My kids LOVE this recipe, as do I. We all tend to eat much more in terms of quantity when we have it, by comparison to other fish recipes....fish and dairy, who'da thought it?

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
This recipe is excellent and super easy to make. Kids loved it to. Variations: I didn't have any chicken broth, so I used vegetable broth. Instead of spinach, I used asparagus, and just left covered for another 15 minutes after simmering time expired. After I drained the pasta, I put in back in the hot cooking pot, added cheese, sauce, stirred and left covered for 15 minutes until we were ready to eat. Awesome.

Moussaka

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
I LOVE this recipe, been to Greece a few times and I think this recipe is amongst the best I've tried. I love rich food and the original recipe is awesome - but for those trying to cut down on the calories or richness: 1) the olive oil can easily be halved when frying eggplant, or elimated altogether in favor of olive oil cooking spray, done under the broiler, 2)the bechamel sauce can also be reduced by at least a third, as there is more than is reasonably required, and 3) the cheese can be cut down to 1 cup total, and any kind of cheese works well, I've tried with Mozz, Cheddar...it's all good! Guaranteed to be a favorite for adults and kids alike.

Mussels in Curry Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
This was good, though I used half and half cream, not full cream. Very nice flavour.

Golden Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
I followed what other reviewers had suggested. browned an onion, some garlic together with mushrooms, then added condensed soup (and can of milk), set the sauce aside. Then quickly browned chops in bit of olive oil, covered in sauce and slammed in the oven. Had it over rice, was pretty good.
