Roasted Radishes

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
Have tried this recipe using white radish but it was so-so. Don't think white radish tastes good oven baked unfortunately - found it to be somewhat lacking in flavour... will have to find another way of cooking white radish...

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: May 10, 2013
I must admit I didn't follow all the instructions. As we have a TONNE of yellow lentils to use up, I put in just over double the amount in. Also we had no celery so put in extra carrot. It turned out more mushy than soupy. I think lentil recipes can also vary depending on the type of lentils put in, and putting a mix of lentils may have improved things...

Nice soup - made it as described except used light milk - easy to make, tastes good. Next time I think I will try adding more herbs.

Watermelon Salsa

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
Very simple recipe. Hubby was giving me weird looks as I told him the ingredients to add, but then after tasting, couldn't stop him finishing the whole bowl!! Tastes very refreshing! I think some cucumber and coriander would go well as well. Will be making this again.

Grilled Rosemary Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
Very simple recipe - I just reduced the soy sauce by a tiny bit and even so found it a bit too salty for my taste. Otherwise tastes good. Have heaps of marinade left over - could've marinated twice the amount of pork chops with it... Next time will add more fresh herbs than just rosemary.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
Agree with most of the reviews - this is a delicious recipe. We added spicy italian sausage and it added a zing to the dish! Also added in some left-over vegies - in future I will add more in, as I like a meal to be balanced with not too much meat. Also will omit the sugar - really isn't necessary but guess it all depends on one's taste buds. Yum Yum! Will make again!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
Fantastic soup recipe - definitely a keeper. Tastes so healthy and delicious. I didn't have much tomato sauce but instead added 4 cans of diced tomatos without problem. Yum Yum!

Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
Sorry to say but this recipe didn't cut it with me despite all the rave reviews. I was surprised to find that the recipe didn't require the broccoli or cauliflower to be cooked at least a little bit, I mean seriously who eats these vegetables raw? Anyway I ended up steaming in some water for a few minutes until they were slightly cooked though still retaining the crunch thus making it edible. Now for the sauce... it was bad sorry! After reading the reviews, we halved the amount and used low fat Mayo BUT it was still SO SUPER SWEET and ended up STILL BEING WAY TO MUCH!!! I ended up adding some wholegrain honey mustard and it was much better. We let each person help themselves to the sauce and at the end there is still heaps left over. The taste of this combination overall was a bit strange as well - my tastebuds were looking for potatoes as this would've been good with some potatos yet there weren't any... Sorry but won't be making this one again.

Seared Salmon with Indian-Inspired Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
Interesting combination, yet it works! We had a lot of mushrooms and celery so added about 3x the amount and so ended up with less liquid in the sauce but the taste was still great! Will consider making again...

Bouillabaisse

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Oh my GOD!!! This is SUCH a fantastic dish!!!!! I couldn't get over the flavours it produced!! I added more fennel leaf and thyme as had heaps to use in the garden. Otherwise pretty much stuck to the recipe. Only thing was I found cleaning and debearding those mussels a bit time consuming but this was my first time, so hopefully get faster at it next time! Hubby couldn't believe I'd made such an amazing dish! lol! I will definitely make this dish again.

Chef John's Quiche Lorraine

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
Fantastic recipe! I didn't follow it to the T, as I have a bad habit of speed reading and not necessarily catching all the details. I substituted onion for spring onion as had a lot of the latter growing in the garden. Then mixed the bacon together with the onion-leek mix which turned out fine. We didn't fill the mixture to the top of the dish as we were afraid it would overflow, but now realised we should've as the centre mix will sink a bit as it cools, so next time we will make sure to fill it right to the top. We also made the pie dough and for a first timer, who wasn't too fussed with specific weights/measurements, it turned out fine. I was actually quite surprised how well it turned out and am sure will be making more pie crusts in future instead of going to the supermarket. Highly recommended - I would make this dish again!

Egg Scramble

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Fantastic recipe - easy to make and tastes great. Like others I also added some bacon pieces which tasted good. I tripled the amount of spinach which went well, but as I like more greens, will be adding even more next time. Will definitely be making this again!

Avocado-Shrimp Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
Fantastic recipe - so easy to make and healthy to eat. Also added some red capsicum. Found the onion bit too overpowering, so next time will cook it lightly before adding. Otherwise great recipe - will be making again.

Cauliflower-Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
Made exactly according to recipe and it was absolutely delicious! Used lite milk instead of full-cream for a healthy version and still ended up thick and creamy and full of taste. Definitely a keeper.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Instead of flour, I coated the chicken breasts in whisked egg and then breadcrumbs, otherwise followed the recipe as stated. Came out quite yummy! Chicken was tender, sauce was very tasty. I must say our sauce turned out somewhat brown after we added it to the saucepan after cooking the chicken (I hope this was what we were supposed to do!) and I note on the picture the sauce appears white? Or are we meant to cook the sauce in a separate pan?

Pumpkin Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
Nice warm hearty meal. All the ingredients soften adequately as per the receipe. We added other vegies we had including potatos, sweet potatos, turnips. Then right at the end we added brocolli and zucchini. Great meal - easy to make and very filling - will make it again.

Cabbage and Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
Made the recipe incorrectly as we got confused about the flour and water bit - only later did we realise the boiled water and the water to add to the dumplings were different. I boiled up some chicken stock - then just added the flour directly into the boiling water and wondered why we couldn't get a dough-like consistency doh! Anyway we were still able to make small balls and drop them into the boiling water to boil. Taste was as other reviewers reported, a bit bland, but this is good in that you can still add things - I added chinese sausage to the mix and it tasted good with it. Will also reduce the amount of butter added too, as it became greasy after a while. Reckon I'll make this again.

Fennel Risotto

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
Wonderful vegetarian recipe! Just a few minor changes - I used light thick cream and also added some fresh mushrooms as well. Also used fresh parsley which I think gives it a bit more flavour than dried. Tasted quite yummy with some white wine! We were meant to have it as entrees before the roast turkey but hubby went back for a second plate in lieu of the main course...! Definitely a keeper!
