Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2014
Pure goodness and simplicity. This sauce came out beautifully Exactly as it was written, with the one exception that I blended it---which is really a matter of personal preference: chunky or smooth. I served my tomato cream over slightly baked hot Italian sausage pieces which I quickly caramelized in a hot pan (we like the crispy edges). Turning down the heat, I added big chunks of green, red, yellow and jalapeno peppers. When the vegetables were cooked to just under crisp, I added the sauce and let everything simmer together for a few minutes. My husband and I cleaned our plates, and there is None of this left in the fridge---all the leftovers were quickly snatched up! This was a winner for my household.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
Was Excellent---and shamefully simple to make! My fiance and I devoured half the recipe with steaks and salad, and the other half was gone at breakfast the following day! This was my first cornbread, so I was cautiously optimistic. The buttermilk was JUST the right ingredient, it adds a fragrance and 'grannie-made' taste that is wonderful. The only thing I would recommend is to bake it for only about 30 min and watch it if you're oven tends to hot. GL! It was superb.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
Marvelous 'base' recipe. The corrections advised by several other commentors were exactly right. I doubled the amount of garlic and ginger paste. I added 1/2 tsp Fenugreek seeds and 1/2 tsp Coriander seeds (toasted lightly in a pan before grinding very fine) to the dry spices and used ground cashews to thicken as opposed to cornstarch. Add whole cashews to your blender, pulse them into 'meal', then add the entire sauce into the cashews in the blender. This produces a smooth and velvet sauce which is a complete success. HEED the corrections! With these minor fixes, this recipe exceeds all expectations.

Dash's Donair

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
We're ex-pats from Nova Scotia to Alberta---and BOY do we ever crave 'real' donairs!! This recipe is spot on! I use red chili flakes in mine, and white pepper as well as black. We like spicy in our house. I often double (or triple) the recipe and freeze the raw loaves for my sweetheart to bake when needed. Also--for something different, I sometimes add 1tsp of "Bay spice" which is equal amounts of Ground bay leaves, coriander and fennel seed. This adds a bit of 'sausage-like' flavour which we also enjoy. Just a little change for a some variety. Thanks Dash!!

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
Made this is Cod filets--a meaty white fish. The whole thing made us think we were back ont he beach in Mexico. Its lovely lime-scented, chipotle aroma was great. We added a bit of sour-cream to the tacos upon serving. FYI--I found there was a bit more fluid produced after cooking the fish, so I simply poured it off before serving to make a drier taco. Otherwise you'd have really messy tacos! IMO.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2014
Made these today. I followed the recipe exactly EXCEPT I omitted the cinnamon/sugar topping which I think is unnecessary and also hides the taste of the blueberries. In central Alberta, or at high elevation, either reduce the amount of flour you use, or add more milk--your choice. I do not think these muffins will last either in the house, or at work tomorrow!

Tantalizingly Tangy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
Okay, this is a nice recipe, but it definitely needs some help. First, add salt and pepper to the ground meat. There's none indicated in the orig. recipe. Also, season the beef appropriately, it needs a little ( 1/4 cup) fresh minced onion, plus a dash paprika, some minced fresh parsley, and if you're game, add your own spice blend to the beef. I added 1/2 ground chicken, 1/2 ground beef for the protein. Then I seasoned it as I desired. The saving grace for this recipe is the glaze. DO puree a 14oz can of pineapple tidbits, add the ketchup, add the sugar, add the wortcheshire and blend it up til it's still a bit chunky. season to taste with SnP. Coat as prescibed at about 20 min before you remove from the oven. with these corrections, this recipe is a hit for your hungry husband. enjoy. ~EMB

I did not care for this recipe. The vinegar was over-powering.
