Eggplant and Ground Beef Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
Outstanding recipe with or without the lasagne noodles.Eggplant and mushrooms are a wonderful taste combination. I used Cheddar and Asiago cheese because that's what was handy.

Creamy Kale Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
Great recipe. I 'massaged' the torn kale in a bowl with a dash of kosher salt for 2-3 minutes to break down the fibres and make it more toothsome. I also added 1 Tbsp. of tahini to the dressing for an even creamier version and added dried cranberries. Thank you for an inspirational recipe!

Sweet and Savory Kale

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
I made this recipe with beautiful late harvest organically grown kale. The marriage of mustard, broth, and cider vinegar is inspired and the dried cranberries and nuts further elevate this succulent side dish. I could eat this often. This is an ace recipe!

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
Good basic recipe. I like to make my own sauce and sometimes add a can of tomato soup if I need more. I find rolls are best baked with lid on for most of the baking. Since I like sweet and sour flavours, I add brown sugar and fresh lemon juice, to taste. Ground beef and ground pork or ham make a good combination for stuffing with cooked rice. I shred the smallest leaves and use to line the bottom of the roaster and top the rolls with the larger, tough leaves, which prevents burning (as mentioned by another contributor). Cabbage rollls always taste best if made the day before or two days before!

Old Fashioned Scalloped Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
Nursery comfort food at its very best. I never use dried parsley bercause it has no taste. (Dried basil is another herb that doesn't dry successfully). I used fresh parsley but it can be omitted and dish won't suffer. Sometimes I use crackers and sometimes, cubed crusty bread, day-old. Butter should be left out for kid-friendly and heart-friendly recipe though a daub is fine. I love this food in the winter served hot and cold in the summer.

Succotash

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
I'd give this recipe four stars but there is way too much butter. I used 2 Tbsp. butter and 2 Tbsp. soft margarine which is enough for a buttery taste but butter could be omitted entirely as suggested by another reviewer. Great combo of vegetables. What's not to love?

Summer Time Cucumber Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I make these sandwiches on those tidy little sandwich squares of rye bread, my favourite. I don't, however add the dried ranch dressing - not to my taste. Great summer tidbit.

Grilled Steak Salad with Asian Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
Perfect summer salad that can be a way to use up leftover grilled (or otherwise prepared) steak. Arugula leaves can be used instead of romaine. They contrast nicely with the steak and Asian dressing. I only used a pinch of sugar in the dressing.

Chicken Katsu

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
A classic katsu recipe. I usually use pork cutlets but chicken is fantastic this way. Ton katsu sauce is a must as an accompaniment.

Lucy's Quick Tonkatsu Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
Lucy you hit the ball out of the park with this ton katsu sauce - better than the rather expensive Japanese bottled version. Thanks!

Cheesy Chicken Asparagus Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2012
This is a good 'foundation' recipe, easy and delicious. I substituted cream of mushroom soup for asparagus and added some lightly sauteed fresh mushrooms to add taste and interest. Top with chopped browned almonds or crushed potato chips if you want to be really retro.

Spinach Salad Supreme

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
I love this recipe especially since the dressing isn't loaded with sugar yet it's really complementary to the spinach. I sometimes toss in thinly sliced radishes if I have them and substitute a handful of cooked shrimp for the bacon - or use both ingredients if you wish. Thanks for this basic and tasty recipe.

Perfecto. As already suggested, I like the onion minced.

Easy Irish Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2012
Kind of bland but then Colcannon is that way. It's meant as a neutral side to a meat entree. That said, I don't like cheese or bacon mixed into the dish.

Favorite Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
I blanched the broccoli and cauliflower before combining into salad. I also omitted bacon (for vegetarians' pleasure), used red peppers not tomatoes. Used a few tablespoons of brown sugar and rice vinegar. Good recipe for expanding to cook's taste. Thanks.

Pomegranate Molasses Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
Inspired combination. It's now a house favourite. This sauce is 'ace' on pork chops or pork tenderloin, roasted in the oven. As Axel Steenberg warns, this sauce can burn after 30-45 minutes so watch closely. I'm a great fan of pomegranate molasses. I picked it up 'on spec' at the neighbourhood Middle Eastern grocery.

Tofu Stroganoff

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
Recipe needs tweeking. Key to a non-goo texture is browning the tofu well on all sides and not over-stirring the stroganoff while it cooks. I used only sour cream, no beef stock but a dash of worchestershire sauce which lends a 'meaty' flavour to a recipe. There's the bones of a good recipe but as reviewers indicate, everyone will probably have their own 'take'.

Curried Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
Fantastic recipe but I left out the pineapple - it dilutes the mayo and produces a runny salad. I served fresh pineapple slices on the side - yummy!

Healthier Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
3/4 cup of ketchup really ups the sugar content in this healthier version. I subbed 3/4 cup tomato sauce and a dash of Splenda. Still sweet but less sugar.

Copia's Penne Pasta and Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
Good combo of flavours. I substituted condensed milk for the heavy cream and it was still luscious.
