Indian Spiced Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2002
Very, very nice and hearty! This makes 4 really large servings. I used basmati rice, and omitted the butter at the end. I felt this could use a little more "heat", so next time I'll add some red chili powder as well. Thanks for posting this!

Vegetable Fried Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2002
This was nice, though I felt it was lacking flavour. Maybe it needs more herbs and spices. The only change I made was in not adding the sesame oil in the end, because I didn't think the dish needed any more oil! This recipe would make 4 main dish servings.

Carrot Dill Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2002
Outstanding! I used garlic powder, water (instead of chicken stock) and whole milk. I also had to use dried herbs but even so the flavour of this soup was fantastic, and it's texture... velvety! This tastes wonderful with warm garlic bread.

Curried Peas

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2002
Really lovely! I had to use vegetable oil because I didn't have ginger oil, and frozen peas. I also reduced the chili to 1/8 teaspoon (after scaling down to 1 serving). This was fantastic with chappatis!

Chickpea and Couscous Delight

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2002
Wonderfully easy and tasty! I peppered this nicely, and didn't add any extra salt. Next time I'll try lemon juice instead of vinegar for more flavour. Thanks for this one!

Depression Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2002
Wonderful taste, though it refused to get out of the pan! I cut this cake into brownie-like pieces and removed them individually from the pan... made for a messy job, but I didn't mind... all the more crumbs to pick at! :-) Next time I'll use less sugar and raisins, and probably omit the allspice, because I prefer a more intense coffee flavour, and I found this to be rather sweet! Nevertheless, great recipe, and I WILL be making this again! Thanks!

Pasta Primavera Sauce

Reviewed: May 22, 2002
Fabulous! Takes a lot of chopping, but worth every bit of effort.

Spiced Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2002
I really liked these muffins, though I made a few changes. I used whole-wheat flour and omitted the anise seeds and ginger, which I don't like. I halved the recipe and it made 6 small muffins that tasted really good! I'll make these again, but next time with baking soda to make them a little less dense.

Mexican Vegetable Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2002
This was great! Very fresh tasting, and is best served hot. I used fresh veggies, omitted the garlic, and used water for the vegetable stock. I had this with yogurt for a lovely lunch.

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2002
Fantastic taste! I roasted the cashews though, since using them raw makes them hard to digest. I had this with broccoli for the asparagus. Note: While scaling down the recipe, take care for the amount of butter you use. You will need a lot less than the recipe calls for if you scale down the recipe.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2002
The best muffins I've had, period!!! They were fantastic fresh from the oven and are perfect for breakfast. I substituted applesauce for the oil, omitted the egg, used brown sugar, and it still turned out great!

Oatmeal Whole Wheat Quick Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2002
This was great! The honey is nearly imperceptible, but I don't need my bread sweet, so this recipe fit the bill! Yeild is one really small loaf, so next time I'll double the recipe to make proper-sized bread slices. I baked for 40 minutes.

Granny's Corn Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2002
This tasted great, but I had to add a whole lot more water to hold it together, and it was still very brittle and dry when I rolled it out, and cracked a lot at the edges. It was more 'crisp' than tortilla-like, but I think with practice, I'll get this one right.

Cavatappi with Spinach, Garbanzo Beans, and Feta

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2002
Nice enough, but a little too garlicky for me. I substituted garbanzo beans with soybeans, and feta cheese with chedder, since that's all I had on hand, and maybe that's why I wasn't very thrilled with it. Nutritious and filling, otherwise.

Cornmeal Mush

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2001
Not bad, but extremely bland... I suppose that's how mush is supposed to be! I used it as cereal, with cold milk and no sugar, so maybe that's why I wasn't particularly thrilled with it. Very filling as breakfast though.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2001
Very good recipe; the crust is as flaky as it promises to be. I doubled the recipe for a lattice top as well, but needed to add 1/3 cup more water to make the dough ball-able. I froze the dough for a little over an hour, and although it cracked a bit while rolling, it turned out very managable and sturdy. Thanks!

Apple Pie III

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2001
My first pie ever, and it turned out almost perfect! I probably baked it a tad too long though, and the filling became a bit mushy, but it was a great tasting pie nevertheless! I sprinked extra cinnamon while filling the crust with the apple mixture, and I didn't need to refrigerate the filling overnight either. The sugar was just right for me, and I don't think I'll be looking for any other apple pie recipe ever!

Absolutely marvellous recipe! It's hearty enough to suffice as a meal, accompanied with fruit or yogurt.

Johnnycakes

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2001
I love the flavour of cornmeal, it makes all the difference. The pancakes were bit on the buttery side, but taste perfectly wonderful! I had to add quite a bit more water to make the batter manageable though. It was a bit of a problem getting them onto the griddle without making a mess!

Amazing recipe... can never get enough of the simple tomato pastas, and this one stands out as one of the best I've seen!
