Shish Tawook Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
Loved this! Very simple to prepare and very tasty, plus it was so tender. I did use low fat mayo in the dipping sauce, fresh garlic in the marinade, no allspice or cinnamon. I highly recommend not skipping the sauce, as it is pairs perfectly with the chicken, it's what makes the dish. I left the oil out too, to save on calories

Eggplant with Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
Loved this! Used fresh garlic and much less sugar (about 1 teaspoon) and it was great.

Moroccan Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
Really good. I did double the spices (except the cumin) and added more cayenne pepper and quite a bit of salt. Celery is hard to find in Turkey so left that out. My husband went back for seconds and told me to make it again. It was very easy to make, healthy, filling and I like that there are no odd/ expensive ingredients in it.

Walnut Chicken Spread

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
This is ok, but I prefer it the way my mother-in-law makes it, using yoghurt instead of mayonnaise, and shredded chicken. It is quite a popular side dish in Turkey. I also add salt to taste, I probably don't add the full teaspoon. We also sometimes don't bother with the celery as it is hard to find here.

Farmer's Market Vegetarian Quesadillas

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
Loved these! What a great idea. Was exactly what I was looking for when I searched for quesadillas. I followed the submitters advice and just used whatever fresh ingredients I had and sauteed with some garlic, salt, and added a tiny bit of sweet chilli sauce. I ended up cooking them in our sandwich press. Husband has been raving about them all night. Thanks for this idea!

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
This was exactly what I was looking for. I added an extra clove of garlic, some cayenne pepper, and the lemon juice to the marinade and left it overnight. I served as suggested on warmed (almost crisp) tortillas with salsa on the side. Husband told me it is the best chicken dish I have made so far, and it was so easy and quick. Thanks so much for sharing.

Erin's Indonesian Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
This was wonderful, and something different for us. I skipped the green beans (didn't have any) and added half a sauteed onion and red pepper to the sauces. I also didn't have the chile paste so substituted a bit of hot sauce instead. My husband doesn't even like peanut butter but said this was the best chicken dish I have made so far. I will make this regularly. Thank you!

Ciabatta

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
At first, I thought this was too soft for what I wanted, but perhaps I should have baked it a little longer. Toasted, and topped with fresh tomato, salt and pepper, fresh basil and drizzled with olive oil and it was sensational! I made it into one big loaf and it was the size I wanted. My husband said it was better than anything we could buy here. I made it again using half ww flour, and it still turned out perfectly, a little heavier, which is probably more what I wanted. The dough is very sticky (ciabatta dough is supposed to be), but I added just enough extra flour to make it workable. I find it quite easy to make the starter, put it in the fridge and forget about it for about a day. I am already being asked when I'm making that delicious bread again!

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
I think the key to getting the pocket is to be careful about the second rise before baking- they should start to puff up quite a bit. I don't bother doing this on the countertop- I do it straight on the cookie rack I cook them on so I am handling them less. If you do it on the countertop, the 'puff' is lost with the transfer. I roll them out pretty thin, and I also mix up the flour, using at least 1 cup of wholemeal as I prefer the flavour.

Coconut Walnut Tart

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Personally I don't think it needs to be baked in a crust. It is a nice variation of impossible pie, and I love the walnut coconut combination. I used under a cup of sugar and it was more than sweet enough, and next time I would make it with even less sugar,I think, and no crust. 5 stars as it is very very easy to make and great tasting.

Peanut Butter Cookies IV

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
5 stars as they were so easy to make, and quite tasty. From reading the list of ingredients to putting the first hot cookie in my mouth was a total of 30 minutes! Incredibly quick and easy to make, and liked the flavour- if you like a strong peanut butter taste I recommend adding extra. They are lovely and soft, and very more-ish. If you want a crispy cookie, this is probably not for you. I recommend not tasting the batter, as it becomes difficult to stop eating it. The cooking time was a mystery to me- most reviewers say 12 minutes is too long, but I left mine in for about 14 and they were perfect. Could be because I use a mini oven, though.

Lemon Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
Loved this! So easy to prepare and tasty. The sauce came out at just the right consistency and balance of flavours. I was in such a rush to eat it I forgot the parsley!? Oops. Tasted great anyway. Thanks for this awesome recipe

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
I recommend adding some cinnamon! As others have said they are a soft cookie, but with the dates and banana they are naturally sweet and a healthy treat. I used olive oil and would probably use a little less next time, or try them with applesauce.

Zucchini Slice

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
In Australia we eat zucchini slice often, and mum always added some cooked bacon. I also use slightly less oil and salt and pepper are a must to add flavour. I usually also add in some corn and sometimes a grated carrot, depending what I am trying to use up, and I use cheddar cheese as it is cheaper. This is a good, basic recipe that can be adapted to suit different tastes.

Creamy Italian White Bean Soup

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
A great soup as is or with some alterations. I always add fresh parsley as one reviewer suggested and it really makes a difference. My husband prefers it without the lemon but I think the lemon gives it a nice tang. I add the lemon just before serving. I also add a little milk and next time I might try a mix of chickpeas and white kidney beans. It is not difficult to make and it's healthy and tasty. Try it!

Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I make this without a crust, and it is perfect every time. This recipe is great as it is, or with additional veggies added. I add some crumbled feta and cherry tomatoes, and I saute the onion first then the spinach until it is wilted (I use fresh). I have also used mushrooms before, cooking them with the onion. You can essentially add whatever extra vegetables you like! Love it!
