Roasted Eggplant and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2014
Why ever would you peel the eggplant; the skin has such a lovely chewy texture! Also be sure and salt it like other reviews have suggested. Makes a huge difference in texture and taste of dish.

Thai Green Curry Prawns

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2014
I used this recipe as a base, but as others have mentioned it definitely needs fish sauce! Even tho I love coconut, I find I enjoy dish like this much better if I use less coconut milk and substitute some veggie broth. My veggies of choice are zucchini, red pepper and bean sprouts; but it's very versatile that way. Serve with noodles or rice in a big soup bowl, and relax about the thin consistency! There are some beautiful green curry pastes out there so often use that as a short cut.

Vegetarian Moussaka

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2014
8-10 servings? Are you kidding me?! 30 min prep time, are you kidding me?! Unless your veggies are mammoth there's no way this will make that many servings. That being said the end result was flavourful and family gave positive reviews. As many others have done I grilled (broiled) the veggies and found by the time they were slightly browned there were almost cooked so I knew they wouldn't have to be baked as long as recipe called for. I also cut my veggies, esp the eggplant and zucchini fairly thick as I wanted to be able to distinguish individual tastes and didn't want it too mushy. Basically I baked it for about 10 min while I was making the sauce, then added sauce and cooked till brown. The end result was nice and firm and tasty.

Carrot Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
Really good! Right up there with Uncle Sam's from this site. I used a different cream cheese icing without white chocolate (don't care for it) and I always add a bit of lemon juice to cream cheese icing, adds just a bit of tartness which is so good!!

Turkey Soup with Root Vegetables

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
I substituted fresh sage for parsley; sage and turkey go hand in hand! Also added some leftover turkey meat at the end. Yum

Salad in a Jar

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
If you make this for lunches, put the dressing in the jar first, then layer other veggies, making sure you put the greens in last, so they don't touch the dressing. Don't shake until ready to eat. It will keep a few days in the fridge this way; as long as the greens don't contact the dressing!

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
It's the dressing/sauce that's amazing! I've used this with prawns and pan fried fish tacos. A WINNER every time.

I did not care for this recipe. Way too sweet for my tastes.

Sour Cream Lemon Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2013
This dessert is delicious. The flour, sugar milk mixture was very thick before I coddled the egg yolks in, but the end result had wonderful flavour. The only change I made was to use natural yogurt instead of sour cream as that was what I had on hand. And a graham crust, for perference. Of course you could add more lemon and zest to suit your taste. Thank you for the wonderful recipe.

Kale and Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
What a tasty healthy salad! It seems the trick with kale is to cut it in thin ribbons, remove the woody white stalk first by just pulling the green leafy part off. I loved the idea of massaging it with sea salt, it turns it a lovely shiny green colour and softens it. The odour is a little off putting, a bit like alfalfa or mowed grass ( a nice enough smell...but to eat???). Anyway after the massage I put the dressing on and let it marinade for a bit then added the quinoa while it was still warm. I left off the feta as a matter of preference and used pumpkin and sunflower seeds (toasted in a frying pan first) instead of pecans. I think fresh fruit such as peach, orange or apple could be used instead of currants. A great recipe that I will use often!!

Super Summer Kale Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2013
I just about didn't make this salad as the amount of sugar called for was a real turn off. It really makes something quite healthy into not so healthy with all that sugar. No need for any sugar, the blueberries cranberries and carrots add enough sweetness! I've found that if you chop up the cranberries and let them soak it the oil/vinegar it really brings out the flavour of the dressing and the berries!

Mexican Chicken Soup

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
This is a good start but like most reviewers (not all) I changed it a fair bit. I seared the chicken in the taco seasoning first, and then let it simmer in the broth for a few hours. Added black beans and corn just before serving. Also used the taco seasoning recipe from this site. Delish. Served it for girls night out and everyone wanted the recipe!!

Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
This is so much better than the broccoli salads heavy with mayo and bacon! Exactly the same as Broccoli Salad 1 which is the most annoying thing about this website. Regardless a tangy and refreshing salad. I peeled an orange and squeezed a couple of segments for the juice, then cut up the rest for the salad, didn't add raisins. I love the broccoli and orange combination. Will be making this a lot, thank you for the great recipe.

Broccoli Salad I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
Our family really enjoyed this salad. Tangy and refreshing! A nice change from most of the broccoli salad recipes that are loaded with mayo and bacon. Since I had to peel an orange for the juice for dressing, I cut up the remaining segments and put into the salad. I left out the raisins just thought it would be weird with the orange... I loved the combination of orange and broccoli! Next time I'll make more to make sure there's leftovers. I also added toasted pumpkin seeds as well as sunflower. Healthy and delicious, thank you for the great recipe!

Pan-Fried Wild Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
This is my favourite way to cook salmon! I use rice bran oil (it tolerates higher heat than olive oil) and a little butter. Altho I sort of do it the opposite...cook skin side down for about 7 min. then turn it just to brown the top. Then you don't have to mess around taking the skin off to make "crackle". The crackle is delish!

Chicken with Quinoa and Veggies

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
The photo is so off-putting I almost didn't try the recipe! But the flavour is there, and vary the veggies to suit what's in the fridge.

Grilled Mustard Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2013
I made some modifications in the prep work, otherwise would give this 5 stars as the end result was delish and my family loved it. I didn't boil the potatoes at all (why dirty a pot ha ha) just baked them skins on on the bbq. Then cut them into a bowl and add the dressing (used olive oil)! Love it!
