Oriental Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
This recipe was nice enough for a change, especially as we've been eating a lot of asparagus lately. It's missing the 'wow' factor though and I probably won't make it again. I substituted coriander powder for cumin as I thought the inclusion of cumin was a little strange (no offence!), and vegetable oil for sesame oil and rice wine vinegar for vinegar on the advice of another reviewer. I only marinated this for 10 minutes though so maybe that was the issue. Overall it was ok and I appreciated the chance to try something new :)

Zucchini Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
These were nice, thanks. They were very sweet though - if I make them again I will half the amount of sugar. I added extra zucchini and carrot, and still felt there was too much batter / not enough filling (they tasted a bit 'wet' or oily), so would add even more veggies next time. But overall, really yummy... just a few alterations to make!

Southern Okra

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
This was great, thanks! It was the first time I'd cooked with okra and I was really happy with the outcome. I added a clove of garlic and a red chilli (with seeds) but otherwise followed the recipe. Next time I will slice the okra a bit thicker.
