Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
Added about a 1/4 cup cream and 1/4 cup chopped sundried tomatoes along with the pasta and feta. Next time, use more spinach and reserve some feta to garnish before serving (my feta melted which was delicious but it would be nice to have pieces of feta in there as well). I served with shrimp roasted in olive oil at 400F for 5-7 minutes. Very good and super fast & easy!!!

Fettuccine Primavera

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
Great recipe to use leftover veggies! Increased the amount of lemon zest (1 tbps) as per other suggestions as well as sundried tomatoes. Modified the sauce to use milk (did not have sour cream). Omitted the chicken to make a vegetarian version. It turned out great, the lemon zest gives it a nice zing! I especially like how quick and easy it was to make. Will definitely play around with this recipe again in the future. If you plan to refrigerate the leftovers, store and reheat the pasta and the sauce separately and toss just before serving. Otherwise, the pasta will absorb all the liquid.

Asparagus and Mushroom Puff Pastry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
Served in phyllo baskets but would be good served over vol-au-vent pastry. Made hollandaise from scratch -- delicious!

Gramma's Date Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
I felt there was too much sugar in the crumble for my taste. Will make this recipe again but will cut the sugar in the crumble by a third or half.

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
Left out the tomatoes and salsa to prevent the pie from getting soggy in the fridge. Also prebaked the tortilla as others suggested. Fried some onions and jalapeno as well as the pinto and black into a thick mush adding a package of spicy taco seasoning and a cup of water. Mashed the beans and cooked the mixture until it was nice and thick. Served the pie with guacamole, sour cream, and salsa as well as with a tossed side green salad. The pie tasted great, even reheated.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
I substituted red wine vinegar for balsamic (so that my salad wouldn't be brown like others mentioned) and sunflower seeds for pine nuts (more affordable ;) and added sundried tomatoes. Instead of combining all the ingredients at once, I only combined the cooked orzo, sundried tomatoes, red onion, basil, pepper, oil and vinegar to marinate in the fridge. And, every time I wanted a serving, I would toss the marinated orzo with fresh spinach, crumbled feta, and sunflower seeds. Every serving of the salad was crunchy and flavourful, even days later. I served with pita, hummus and kalamata olives.

Summer Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
Made this during the harsh Canadian winter of 2010 and it was great! Used 2 cups stewed tomatoes instead of fresh. For the liquid I used 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup Cabernet Sauvignon, 1/2 cup flat beer. Also added 1 fresh green chile minced. Served over rice and topped with grated cheddar.

Fruit Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Tried leaving out the sugar like another reviwer suggested but ended up sprinkling about a quarter cup on the salad after it was made. Sugar should definitely not be left out unless you like a tart fruit salad. Might depend on the fruits you use... I used cantaloupe, kiwi, red seedless grapes, blueberries, canned pineapple tidbits, and orange. I also added poppy seeds as well as 1 tsp. lime and 1 tsp. orange zest. Used peach nectar instead of orange juice concentrate. Definitely yields way more than the serving size suggests. I only used about 2/3 of the dressing for about 8 cups of fruit.

Cheese Filled Triangles

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
Brought them to a potluck and everyone asked for the recipe. I added about 1/3 cup asiago and a little more feta than suggested. I also used Olive Oil Pam instead of butter to grease the phyllo sheets. Delish!!

Used 3/4 cup barley, 1/2 cup small pasta, leek instead of onion, a 28 oz can diced tomatoes for extra liquid, 2 fresh garlic cloves instead of powder, chili powder instead of curry and paprika. Added thyme, crushed red pepper, and turnip. This recipe is very adaptable. Yummy.

Creamy Spinach Tortellini

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
I don't drink milk so I almost never had it on hand. I replace the milk with left over bruschetta and it tasted great! Would probably work well with diced tomatoes and seasoning.

Unsloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Used italian seasoning vinegar instead of white vinegar and increased it a bit. I didn't have tomato paste so I used same amount of tomato sauce. Simmered uncovered to reduce the amount of liquid. Turned out great, would recommend adding cheese as another reviewer suggested.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Prepared the sauce and noodles/veggies/egg/tofu separately for easy freezing (rescaled recipe to 4 servings). Sauce: Combined all sauce ingredients including brown sugar (instead of white), rice vinegar (instead of white), fish & soy sauce (instead of just soy), tamarind soup base paste (could not find pulp), garlic, salt, peanut butter (about 1-1/2 tbsp), fresh daikon (about 1-1/2 tbsp), fresh red chili finely chopped (instead of paprika), and juice of 1/2 lime in a sauce pan. Brought to a boil and simmered until sauce was homogeneous. Divided sauce into ice cube tray and froze. Noodles/veggies: Cooked noodles according to package directions and divided into individual portions and put in freezer bags. Cooked egg and tofu, added to divided noodles. Added portions of sliced carrot, strips of red bell pepper, and bean sprouts to the freezer bags. Added one sauce cube to each bag. To serve: ground peanuts, fresh cilantro leaves (instead of chives), fresh chopped daikon, lime wedge. Next time: Will use fried tofu and make 1.5 times more sauce. Yummy!
