Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
Wish it made more. Really good though once I increased the spice.

Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
Oh my goodness this was tasty. So simple, if I had known sooner mousse could be this easy I would have been making all the time. Next batch I will mix in mint flavouring (or mint booze) to take it up a notch.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
Another husband fave. First attempt too greasy. Second, used a griddle with no extra oil/butter (cheese provided enough) but was too soggy. Third try NAILED IT! Squeez the zucchini as dry as possible and cook the patties in a dry pan. Comes out nice and crispy. Great to play with spices too.

Mexican Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
Husband LOVES these and I have to admit they are darn tasty. Heavy though and I meant weight, not feeling in the tummy. Didn't need buns and topped with guac.... yum. Despite the jarred salsa, it didn't taste salty at all, which I was afraid of.

French Leek Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
Have to double the leeks, otherwise it is like a week quiche than leek pie. Better next day. Would do again but need to ramp up leeks and spicing

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
Okay, followed the directions yet mine came out dark brown not the pretty golden colour like the pics! Regardless, the taste was odd and lacking something so not going to be making this again.

Carrot Ginger Creme

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
Who forgot to invite the flavour? I doubled the ginger and bland as bland can be. Was looking promising until I added the half-and-half and any flavour from the carrots/ginger disappeared. I even added nutmeg and it did nothing! Too bad. At least it was really easy to make.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
Torn on giving a 4 or 5 star rating. I will definitely make this again but a couple missing tips made me go with 4. My first comment is use DEEP DISH pie crusts, it's a lot of filling for a regular one. Even the deep dish was overflowing (could get 2 pies with regular crusts). Are the pie crusts to be frozen or thawed, went by Tenderflake instructions but they didn't turn out quite right. For the stock/flour mix... how thick? Coat the spoon thick or pudding thick? Can make a big difference. Could have a lot of variation just by mixing up the spices which is great!

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I am just about to do the final 20 minutes of cooking and all I have to say is that even if this is the best tasting soup to ever cross my lips it will never be made again. It was far too much work and the measurements too vague... what size carrot/celery/onion (1 cup worth, 2 cups??????) Plus, I shouldn't need a slow cooker AND giant stock pot to make a soup. Wow, took a quick taste test for salt and pepper, totally overwhelmed by tomatoe now I see why the sugar! Sorry.

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
What did I do wrong? Sure, I didn't do the streusel top (not a fan of the stuff) but the blue marvels that came out of the oven were HILARIOUS! They looked like blue smurf hats. One actually looked like a little blue elephant seal. HAHAHAHAHAHA. As for taste, I agree with other, it needs more sugar. I was looking for a low sugar muffin as I need a carb treat without a sugar crash. Taste just like pancakes! Would I make again.... hmmmmmmmmm... sure. They weren't that bad overall. Best was seeing what they looked like, wonder what the next batch will be.... made me giggle

Banana Bread V

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Nice and dense. No overpowering banana taste and not too sweet considering the amount of sugar. Will possibly replace my normal recipe (too much oil).

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Much tastier than the canned stuff. Was concerned at first that the water wouldn't absorb but at the 6 hour mark, things really started to thicken. Best part was as it cooled, there was none of the congealed gunk that is normal in canned beans. Will make again, maybe toss in a can of green chili.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Didn't wait until the rice puffed, lightly browned was good enough. Got the feeling, any longer would have burned the rice before puffing it. Was pretty good, I'd make again but use a better pasta sauce to have a fuller flavour.

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Sadly, this was quite bland. Needed so much more spicing. Not a recipe I will use again. The canned stuff if good enough for the 2 times a year I need it.

Empanadas

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Wow, I was really surprised by this. Once cooked, any hint of cream cheese was gone. People actually said it was like a butter cookie crust. Will definitely keep this in mind for other recipes.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Nice blend of flavours. Nothing overpowered another taste. One bite is a bit more garlic, another is lime, something different every bite

Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Other than spice on the chicken there was no taste to the recipe. Thought coconut milk would add some flavour but there was no hint of it at all. A lot of work for such a bland dish. Tempted to delete from my recipe box.

Poblano Chile Enchiladas a la Gringa

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Already made it twice in two weeks. Think the hubby is addicted to this. First recipe I've ever done with poblano. Really easy even if the recipe seems labour intensive. In an hour dinner is ready, quite reasonable in my opinion. Can be prep'd the night before.
