Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2015
Worked out great, but was grateful to previous reviewers for healthier suggestions. . . used half and half instead of heavy cream, and slightly lowered garlic content (for husband, not me!!!) I did thicken the sauce with corn flour, as well. Realised too late that my mushrooms were no longer possible (what a waste!) but added fresh spinach to make up for (a really good addition, in my humble opinion).

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2015
Great recipe!!!! Must try with spinach but FANTASTIC with just kale: easy, tasty, and interesting. My teen (who hates all greens) made a face when she saw it and came back for more. You star, Dawn!!!!

Fast and Easy Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2014
Used sour cream as did another reviewer: loved it!! I do think that without it the creaminess might be overpowering, though.

Mexican Bean and Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
GREAT combination of flavours, unluckily out of corn and lime, so substituted lemon. Added red wine vinegar as someone proposed and a little extra virgin olive oil. Thanks!!!

Very much recommended!!! As others suggested, added perhaps a half-cup of white wine, which one could taste. Great starter for any meal!

I also used cashews instead of almonds--but either would work, I'm sure.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2014
Really really disappointing. Love all the ingredients (except for ketchup--with Chinese?? And vegetable oil is also a no-no, used peanut oil, as is normal, with Chinese. Should have taken these mistakes as a warning sign!!!) Other than those two (accepted the ketchup with doubts, corrected the oil) I meticulously followed the recipe (well, it IS hugely well-rated!!) This was a deeply disappointing set of non-flavours.

Baby Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
V. good recipe as it is, though I admit I didn't have any nutmeg so I can add nothing to the great nutmeg controversy. I love spinach!--probably added double the Parmesan though, and more black pepper than most people. . .

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
Made up my own Alfredo, and had to use Parmesan (no Romano). Still tasted great, especially as I felt guilty due to the sauce so I shoved in some spinach. A great hit with the family!!
