Gnocchi I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
Better than store-bought gnocchi. I followed what another reviewer suggested: added more flour until the dough is dry to touch but doesn't crumble. I also used whole wheat flour and it was still good!

Leg o' Lamb with Lemon and Rosemary

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
I was really intrigued by the combination of lemonade concentrate and dry onion soup mix and decided to try this recipe along with the Easter Leg of Lamb for overnight marination (from allrecipes as well). The lamb turned out really tender, but I'm not sure if I really like the dressing. To me there was something missing. I personally prefer the Holiday Leg of Lamb recipe (allrecipes), but my boyfriend prefers this because of the lemony flavour.

Greek Salad I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
I followed this recipe exactly. Good salad, but not memorable on its own. I was expecting the "restaurant style" Greek salad, but this is not it. It seems to be missing something. I think for next time I will add a splash of vinegar as another reviewer suggested.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2012
This is such a simple recipe, and that's why I like it more than the others. Because I usually have applesauce with some form of bread - I cut down the sugar to half. If you want thicker applesauce then cut down on the water, if you want it runny add more.

Fast and Easy Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2012
More often, I prefer pancakes on the "flatter" side than super fluffy ones. Admittedly, I like McDonald's pancakes - and this recipe resembles that, but better. The only change I make in this recipe is the sugar. I find that even with half the sugar, the pancakes are too sweet for any syrup or toppings. So if you want to eat the pancakes as is, then maybe cut the sugar in half. I have to have syrup with my pancakes, so I use anywhere from 1/4 to 1/3 of the cup (depending on what syrup I have at home). This is such a basic recipe that you definitely customize. I have used sesame oil before to add a "nutty" flavour - and hints of spices.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2012
Better and healthier than those bottled ranch! I don't think it's really a huge inconvenience to make this, and it's definitely worth the extra 10 minutes to prepare. I didn't have all the ingredients, so I substituted where I had to. Plain yogurt for the sour cream. Fresh parsley for the dried. Grated real garlic instead of powdered. I omitted the chives and powdered onion since I didn't have any. I prepared the dressing at least 1 hour before serving so the flavours can all blend together.

Grant's Special Mardi Gras Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
Very easy pasta dish! I didn't have many of the ingredients so I substituted where I had to, and used this recipe as a base. I didn't have sausage or shrimp, so I just used bacon. I didn't have white wine, so I substituted equal amount of lemon juice. I also used 1% milk instead of heavy cream. To balance the flavour I lack, I added fresh rosemary and parmesan cheese along with the cold butter. The result was still very good and satisfying dish - I can't wait to make this again when I have all the ingredients.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
Certainly easy, but very much satisfying! I have made this batter so many times; for breakfast, dessert or for a snack. I definitely liked it best with mixed berries, frozen and/or fresh. Also good with either whole wheat or white flour, whole milk or skim. You can also get away with using less butter and sugar. Sometimes I use just 2 tablespoon of butter, and 1/2 cup of sugar and leave out the sugar on top - and the batter is still good. Other times I used more or less fruit, and/or add a splash of vanilla or other spice. I love "flexible" recipes like this one. Since the recipe is easy, and the ingredients are all easily available - I suggest following the recipe exactly for the first time. Then next time, you can just adjust the ingredients according to your liking.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
Very yummy. I followed what other reviewers suggested: used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 butter instead of margarine; used only 1 cup of sugar, and 3 tablespoon of coffee in 2 tablespoon of water. My only regret is that 3 tablespoons of coffee kind of over-powers the banana. Will definitely make again, but with 2 tablespoon of coffee.

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
This is the most memorable home-made chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted. It is that good. I did follow a suggestion made by a reviewer to bake the cookies in 300 degrees C. This recipe is also forgiving, I made a few changes according to what I have at home: 1.) I used whole wheat flour 2.) Used 3/4 cup demerara sugar instead of 1 cup brown sugar 3.) I increased the vanilla to 1 Tablespoon. 4.) Used 1 Tablespoon of instant coffee since I didn't have espresso coffee powder. Lastly, since I generally prefer larger cookies, I prepared the dough by 1/4 cup and baked for about 25 min. The cookies turned out perfectly: just the right chewiness, just the right sweetness with just the right hint of salt and coffee.

Easy Shake and Bake Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
Easy but satisfying dish! When we crave for a healthy alternative to KFC, we make this. My modifications are as follows > 1. I substitute chili powder for paprika, and thyme for sage, since I have neither. > 2. I double spices (thyme and pepper), and add equal amount of celery seeds. > 3. I substitute oil for the butter since I do not usually keep some butter. This is a very good base recipe.

Limehouse Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
Interesting blend of ingredients! I wanted to use my mint leaves before they begin to rot, and found this recipe. I modified the recipe by > 1. I didnt bother frying the chicken. Instead, I marinated the chicken in chili powder + celery seeds + dried thyme + salt and pepper, while I prepared the rest of the ingredients. > 2. I omitted the both the wine and broth since I didnt have any. Instead, I baked the chicken in my own broth (1 cup water, 1 cup carrots, 3/4 cup celery, red onions, some thyme, and dashes of lemon pepper) > 3. I added generous amount of mint. Even with my "lazified" version, we enjoyed the dish, and I give credit to this recipe for the idea.
