Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2015
This is the first time I roasted a whole chicken. I was worried a bit about the spices, the sugar and the reviewers saying it tasted like pie. My chicken cooked perfectly, tasted great, no overpowering by the cinnamon, nutmeg and such, and was moist and delicious. I also doubled the amount of spices (not the salt and sugar) and added rosemary, black pepper and turmeric. This will be my go to recipe for roasting a whole chicken and I will be cooking that often.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2015
I used boneless, skinless chicken breast. The sauce did caramelize for me without cooking it on the stove top, but with 2 tbsp. potato starch (that is what I have, but corn starch should work just as well). As suggested by others, I baked the chicken in the over at 400F until almost done (maybe 20-30 min.), then poured the sauce on it and placed back in the oven. In about 10 min. the sauce had thickened. I mixed the chicken to coat it well and placed back for maybe 5 min. It is delicious and much better than a store bought sauce.

Baked Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2013
This is the first time I cook eggplant at all. This recipe was simple and delicious. My picky preschooler liked it, also my toddler: that is a testimony enough. Because I was not sure how they'd react to an eggplant dish, which is not typically on our menu, and I only had one eggplant, I added some pasta to it. I boiled some whole wheat rotini (about half of a box) and layered sauce, pasta, cheese, then sauce, eggplant and cheese. I had some leftover from the bread crumbs and Parmesan mixture and I sprinkled that on top. It was delicious fresh, and the next day as leftovers too.

Carrot Cake

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
I do not like carrot cake: I just do not like vegetables in my desert. I made this for my husband's birthday, because it is his second favourite cake (the first being prune cake). And he loved it, his family loved it, and even I liked it a lot. The cake is moist and has nice flavour. I did the frosting as suggested in this recipe, because I preferred to use cream rather than butter. I used almost 1/2 cup heavy cream and one 8oz package of cream cheese. It gave me just enough frosting for a two-tier 9in cake. An excellent recipe - thank you!

Swiss Chard with Garbanzo Beans and Fresh Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
I had never cooked Swiss chard before and was looking for a simple, yet delicious recipe. This is the one. I wanted to use this as a main course, and I am not big on eating just greens. So, I used a whole can of Garbanzo beans, as others suggested, a can of diced tomatoes, 2 small cloves of garlic, and added rice to the mixture. It came out very tasty. My 2-year-old and my husband liked it, too. Next time, I will try it with orzo, instead of rice. Thank you for a delicious recipe!

Quiche Lorraine II

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
The best quiche I have tasted. My husband and 2-year-old son loved it, too. I used ready deep dish pie crust, leftover ham instead of bacon, and added spinach. Since the ham was salty and there is lots of cheese in it, I skipped the salt altogether. Turned out great. I cooked at 350F for an hour. Thank you for a great recipe. I will make this often.
