Mock Chopped Liver

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
Given the number of times that I have made this recipe I'm shocked to find I have never reviewed it - it is an absolutely excellent attempt at a vegetarian version of liver pate, and I love to spread this on crackers, freshly-baked baguette, or toast. Fabulous partnered with a glass of red wine, too. The fiber content makes it very filling, but the texture and taste make it taste very decadent.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
This is my second time making this soup, and it is always amazing. My household is only made up for 2 people, but I always make enough for 8-10. We eat it for dinner (twice, since we always go back for seconds!) and save it for the next few days. I haven't yet included the apple because I've been discouraged by my partner, but I will sneak one in next time. The only other change I make is to add 1/2 cup french lentils and 1 teaspoon of cumin. I think the cumin is essential to get the real depth of flavour that this soup deserves. Delicious. UPDATED: Have now made this soup around 7 times. I added in the apple and my partner and I both LOVED it (and I really dislike cooked apples.) It does not make the soup taste sweet or sour, but provides a very unique, mild tartness to the soup that helps enhance all the other flavours, much the way adding cream does. Do not hesitate to use both the apples and the cream - they really, really do make a difference to the final product! Excellent dish!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
Great even without the sugary topping. Reduced calorie, too, especially if you use skim milk. Assuming you make 12 muffins, without the topping they are 173 calories each. Much less than the 383 calories advertised in the recipe!! Plus, I don't even like blueberries much and these were were flaky and tasty. Five stars.

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
This was great. I quartered the recipe to make only 6 servings, which means that you are only supposed to add 1/2 an egg. I took the risk of throwing a whole one in, and no surprise, it has the mildest taste of too much egg. It is still delicious bread though, and holds up to a heart multigrain flour, too, maintaining all its fluff and airiness. I will make this again for sure.

Hearty Multigrain Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
I'm going to have to give this bread only four stars because I made the MISTAKE of listening to other reviewers and adding two tablespoons of molasses instead of brown sugar. The bread is the perfect texture, is full of grains and fiber, and cooked beautifully - but tastes FAR too strongly of molasses. I definitely should have just followed the recipe as it was and listened to the original cook instead of the improvised additions. I am sure this would have been 5 stars had I followed the original recipe!

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
I was surprised to see how much I disliked this bread. To me the baguette tastes like flour and yeast, and is nothing close to the baguettes that I ate for years in Paris. This was really unpleasant to eat.

Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
I'm giving this four stars only because, as many users have indicated, the "rolls" are much more like biscuits than dinner rolls. The texture was almost cake-like because it was so airy; definitely not a dinner roll! That being said, as biscuits they are a very quick and easy recipe that I intend to make again. I added a tablespoon of rosemary, a tablespoon of dried onions, and a teaspoon of garlic powder and they turned out delicious.

Choice Apple and Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
I saw the bad ratings and decided to make it anyway, and was glad that I did. I made three changes: I added an egg, and a cup of sliced, frozen strawberries instead of the apple, and I added a teaspoon of all spice. For those complaining about the wet centre, there should be some wetness expected when you are using mashed bananas! They aren't going to solidify completely when baked, they remain moist and mushy. If you want to prevent some of the wetness, either cut down on the bananas or mix them extremely thoroughly so that you have no chunks (even small ones.) Personally, I loved being able to take a bite and finding a moist banana/strawberry mixture in the middle. Considering how low-fat AND low calorie this is, I give it four stars.

Egg Drop Soup (Better than Restaurant Quality!)

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
This was definitely too salty in its original format, and I even used low sodium soysauce, and only 3/4 of a teaspoon at that. I had to add 3/4 of a cup of water to it to sort it out. Adding chopped green onions is also an absolute requirement if you want to have the authentic Chinese taste. With my additions I would give it 4 stars, as it was better than most egg drop soup recipes, but definitely needs some tweaking. (FYI, sometimes I add a dash of cayenne pepper for an extra kick, but it's not necessary.)

Veggie Brown Rice Wraps

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
I didn't have brown rice so I used white. After filling the tortilla I added fresh chopped cilantro, a spritz of lemon, fresh chopped tomatoes instead of salsa, and chopped avocado. The cilantro and lemon gives an an added kick and an authentic Mexican feel . This recipe is extremely easy to make, takes very little time, and is definitely a keeper.
