Grilled Salmon II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2004
This recipe is fantastic! So flavourful! I omitted the peanut oil, and salt, and used chili paste (about 2-3tsp.) instead of the red pepper flakes, but otherwise followed the recipe. It was raining, so we couldn't barbecue, but it turned out beautifully using the grill functon in the oven. Oh, and I saved the marinade, added some water, and boiled it to make a sauce (though the fish doesn't really need it). Thanks for a wonderful recipe that will be made for many occasions!

Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2004
This makes a nice moist, light but hearty muffin. I used about 1 1/2 cups of frozen blueberries (didn't even thaw them and they turned out fine). I also used only 1/8 cup of oil and replaced the other 1/8 a cup of oil with yogurt. Oh, and I added about a Tbsp of dried candied ginger. This gives a nice contrast with the sweetness of the blueberries. A great recipe. Thanks!

Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2004
This recipe is fantastic! I made some modifications though...Used half whole wheat flour and half white, only used a 1/2 cup of sugar ( lots of natural sugar in the pumpkin and dried cranberries), and used only 1/4 cup of oil and replaced the other 1/4 cup with yogurt. Oh, and these are good with raisins if you don't have cranberries. Thanks for sharing this delicous recipe with us!

Apple Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2004
These are so tasty and moist! I added a bit of powdered ginger just because I like ginger. The natural sugar in the carrots and raisins adds a lot of sweetness, so I cut the sugar back to 1/3 cup and these were still sweet enough for my husband and me! (We live in Japan and have become accustomed to not-so-sweet sweets.) I've passed this recipe on to friends and they love it too! Thanks for sharing.

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2004
These are so good! And easy, too. I use 1 cup of white flour and 1 cup of whole wheat, and cut the sugar back to 1/2 cup, and they are still nicely sweet. I make these with blueberries and ginger powder...a nice combination. May try them with chocolate chips next time!

Brownie Biscotti

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2004
Excellent! Such wonderful chocolate taste. I cut the sugar in half to 1/3 cup since I don't like cookies too sweet, and the people at work raved about them. Thanks for sharing!

The name says it all - these are the best! So fast and easy. Great with jam if you don't have maple syrup. Thanks!

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2004
This bread was a big hit. I cut the sugar to 1/4 cup and used one cup of raisins and one cup of sweetened dried cranberries. I also omitted the caraway seeds and used half whole wheat flour for a little more fibre. It was still really moist yet dense. Great for breakfast! Thanks for sharing.

Shieldzini

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
A nice dish. I didn't put in the oil and it wasn't missed. I'll try adding a pinch of dried pepperoncini next time for some zing.

Spinach and Goat Cheese Salad with Beetroot Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
This salad is FANTASTIC! I didn't have boullion mix, so omitted it. I didn't have the walnuts either, so I just added some toasted pine nuts and sunflower seeds, and for sweetness added a bit of chopped mango. I'll try it with the walnuts next time, but the substitutions were great. Thanks!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2003
The name of this recipe says it all. They were fantastic and got gobbled up instantly. I made them without the frosting and just sprinkled icing sugar on top. Thanks!

Black Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2003
This cake was absolutely delectable! And black just as the name says. I made a couple of modifications: I used 1/3 a cup of canola oil and 1/3 of a cup of low-fat yogurt to cut back on fat, and it was still incredibly moist. I also cut back the sugar to 1 1/2 cups. I made a glaze with 1 cup of chocolate chips, 1 cup of whipping cream and 2 tsp of vanilla. There were raves all around when I served it. Thanks for a fantastic recipe that I'm planning to use very often!

Delicious! Just like the tourtiere my aunt makes for our Ukranian Christmas celebration. I wouldn't change anything about this recipe.

Drew's World Famous Triple Rush Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2003
Delicious! The cinnamon adds a really nice flavour and the chili gives just a subtle "kick". Very rich and great on a cold, snowy house-bound day! Thanks for sharing this, Drew.

Tofu and Red Pepper Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2003
I was intrigued by the ingredients in this recipe. I made it as per the instructions, but it didn't turn out well at all. It was very bland and too runny. I'm not sure what happened, but I don't think I'll make it again.

Bean Dip Athenos

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2003
I made this for a Mediterranean-themed dinner party and it was well-received. I halved the recipe, used yogurt instead of sour cream, and cut back the sun-dried tomatoes by half. The tomatoes gave it a nice flavour. I'll definitely be making this again.

Cream of Broccoli Soup III

Absolutely delicious, and low-fat too! And it was so quick and easy to make. I didn't have any celery, but otherwise followed the recipe, and it was great. Everyone asked for more! Thanks for sharing this.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2003
Great recipe! As good as my grandfather's recipe, and his is an all-time favourite! The only modifications I made were to use 1/3 a cup of sugar in the apple mixture and I increased the cinnamon to 2 teaspoons. I thought the topping would be sweet enough, so that's why I cut back on the sugar with the apples. This is a keeper. Thanks!

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2003
This dish is a winner! I cut the butter in half because I like to cut the fat content whenever I can. I also used Japanese (sticky) rice because that's all we can get in Japan and despite being a little worried about how it would turn out, it was great. Will definitely make this again and experiement, as other readers have mentioned, with different pasta and veggies. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
