Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2014
Great! I had everything except for cilantro. I love curry. I love quinoa. This is a no-fail side or main!

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2013
Love this soup! I'm just sitting down with my second bowlful :) The only addition/change I did was to add one sweet potato in chunks. I'm so very warmed up by this soup! EXCELLENT!

Excellent and Healthy Cornbread

Reviewed: May 16, 2013
This was pretty good when still warm and when you're eating with a good chili. It got dry quickly after that, so eat fresh! I added a cup of corn too. If I had jalopeno I would have chopped it up and added that too.

Guacamole

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
Mmmm! Great flavour, texture (like it chunky), super fast to toss together and the flavour was GREAT. I didn't even add the garlic this time. Cayenne is a great touch!! This was supposed to be an app for my dinner tonight ... but it is quickly becoming my whole dinner :)

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
Very good! Next time I might cut down the butter and soy (keep the brocc healthy!) and I added a little cornstarch to thicken up the sauce. A good one for "Cruciferous Vegetable Night" :)

Spiced Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
I like having this one in my baking repertoire. Found it was a little more special with the crumbled brown sugar on top before baking. Really good :)

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
Fantastic recipe. Had no idea pitas would be so easy. I used EVOO and will try honey instead of sugar next time as suggested by other reviews. Proofed my yeast first and didn't use a bread maker - turned out great!

Almond Maple Granola

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
I will definitely be making this again! Great with yogurt or milk in the morning! I didn't have sunflower seeds or the full amount of almonds so I did almonds, walnuts and pecans. On my second time around, I used coconut oil instead of veggie oil and it was good! And I think much healthier :)

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
Pretty good. Maybe my dijon was a little strong as it really overpowered the salmon but it was still good!

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
Really good! I didn't have wheat germ so I put in ground flax instead. I might try this one again subbing out the sugars for other sweeteners and an oil alternative and see how it turns out!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
Fantastic! The only things I didn't add were the walnuts and raisins. I put 1/2 pecans on top for decoration though. Yum! I wasn't keen on pouring in 3/4 cups oil and 1 1/2 cups white sugar so I may try this again with applesauce instead of oil and swap out some of the sugar for other less-refined sweeteners. But wow - the moisture content was great and the sweetness too. Mmmmm. Will definitely make again!!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
So good! I didn't add the full measure of sugar, and every time will add less and less sugar to see how little I can get away with and still have it taste as good!

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
I liked this recipe! It tastes better than it smells though - I brought it to a potluck and the whole car had this odd smell, took us a minute to figure out what it was! Honestly, I really liked it but the bowl wasn't exactly scraped clean at the family party, which I think is just because people just don't trust brussel sprouts!!

Harissa

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
I've never eaten Harissa before but need it for a number of recipes in a new cookbook I received for Christmas. I couldn't find the product ANYwhere, so I made it myself. It's pretty good! I don't know my way around hot peppers, but all I could find were Scotch Bonnet Peppers (my fingers still burn a little from chopping them up)! I also made the mistake of adding the full 1/2 cup of olive oil to the mix ... so the texture is obviously more fluid than a paste. In any case, I've made the first recipe that uses it and it tastes fantastic as the main source of flavour (with garlic). Oh, it also did not turn out red. More of a green ... perhaps because the ratio was off when I added all the olive oil?

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Dee-lish. I'm thinking this is around a 3.7 for what it is: a hearty bowl of goodness after a long and cold day's work. Due to my schedule, it cooked a little longer than 11 hours and the lentils had completely lost their shape (not sure if they were supposed to). This is a good introduction to a lentil based soup (for someone (me) who thought lentils were tasteless beans ... which they're not). This is a great base for any direction you want to go! I'll likely make this again in the winter this year :)

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
It seems like a good base for what could be a great soup. I read a lot of reviews that say it tastes even better the next day and I'm looking forward to that. I used canned chopped tomatoes and added the juice in (didn't want to waste it) and I'm glad I did, it definitely added to what would otherwise be a relatively plain broth. I think it's lacking in some dimension ... perhaps more veggies or another spice). That being said ... I'm sitting on my couch, wrapped in a blanket eating/drinking this soup with a box of tissues next to me and I already feel like it's giving my cold a run for it's money! I'm not tossing this soup out!

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
VERY GOOD!! I brought 2 dozen to a family thanksgiving dinner and the whole tray was demolished! So great with cream cheese icing. Good texture/moisture. Used a can of pumpkin pie filling. So good!

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
SO good! I was eating it out of the bowl after I had tossed the onions/butter/spices/bread together! Prepare all the night before and toss in the egg and broth the next morning and turn on the slow cooker! I definitely plan to make this again!
