The Original Donair From the East Coast of Canada

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
I thought this was pretty good although a bit hot for our taste. I was able to let the uncooked mixture sit for a few hours only rather than overnight as the recipe suggests. The sauce was a bit thinner than I had expected but perhaps was due to my method of mixing. I thought the taste, sweet/sour was a nice combination with the spicy meat slices. Thank you very much for taking the time to share your recipe with us. I will make this again but will decrease the cayenne a touch, and I might try it with ground pork.

Japanese Sesame Steak Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
I am sorry but I just didn't care for this sauce as written. I found that, for me, it was very strongly tahini flavoured and a bit gritty in texture. But, I kept adding quite a bit of mayonnaise, about 1 tsp sesame oil, more garlic, and about 1 Tbsp very finely minced fresh ginger. So, in the end, I am afraid I completely changed the recipe but made it more appropriate for our tastes. I used it as a dip for toasted ravioli which is also on this site, and it was a nice compliment. Thank you, Laurieloo for posting this recipe.

Breaded Toasted Ravioli

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
I made these essentially as directed, but eliminated the oregano and basil (just personal preference),and added garlic powder and black pepper. I used homemade breadcrumbs, and a bit extra parmesan cheese. I served them with a sesame mayonnaise-based dip. We preferred them right from the oven. Thank you chefspecialty for taking the time to post this recipe. We will certainly be making them again.

Chicken Kokkinisto with Orzo

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
I am giving this recipe 4 stars for potential and ease of preparation, and perhaps 3 stars for taste as written. I halved the recipe and used 4 chicken thighs. Having tasted the mixture before serving and finding it pretty bland, I added about 1 tsp dried oregano, about 1/2 tsp dried mint, about 1/2 tsp chili flakes, a good shake of spicy herbamare which is a spicy salt mixture-probably not really needed. I let the dish simmer for a few extra minutes at this point. I also minced 3 more cloves of garlic and added just before serving. I had used one standard (about 375mls) can of plain tomato sauce, about half a can of water, then added about 3/4 cup of long grain rice as I did not have orzo on hand. Also next time I make this I will certainly take the skin off of the chicken either after browning, or before starting the recipe. So, I did change the recipe quite a bit and of course this is only due to personal taste but I do appreciate having the chance to try it out. We will be making it again as it is a relatively fast meal. Thank you for posting this dimitra.

Greek Egg Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
I thought these were very good, not too sweet, and easy to make. I might decrease the baking powder a touch the next time as the cookies might be a bit more dense (personal preference only), but even as written they certainly were very good. Thank you, Nico, for taking the time to share this recipe.

Kecap Manis (Sweet Soy Sauce)

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
**Updated review with changes. I have made this recipe twice, first time as written, second time using brown sugar and *not* browning prior to adding the remainder of the ingredients. I found the white sugar difficult to use (see my initial review at the end of this review) but using the brown solved the problems I had had. Also, I brought the sauce to a boil, then simmered for about 5 minutes only as I was worried it would burn. I used dried curry leaves and star anise found in my local Asian grocery. I now rate this as a "4" star (a recipe has to be really remarkable for a "5" from this reviewer). The taste is very good, and the consistency is just thick enough. I do hope people will try this as it adds an interesting salty/sweet taste to rice, noodles etc. Thanks again, Rocky. The following is my initial review left attached as it might provide a few hints about the recipe: This is an interesting recipe. I did have some difficulty with the first step which was browning the sugar, then adding the soy sauce. The sugar clumped quite badly and then when the sauce was added, it was nearly impossible to dissolve. I carried on, adding the water and seasonings, and brought the mixture to a boil. I thought at this point the sugar might dissolve and kept it at a slow boil for a few minutes but thought I could smell a bit of burning so took it off the heat. After it had cooled I strained it and tasted. I couldn't discern any burnt flavour. All in all, it tastes prett

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
We both liked this recipe. Made as written, and altered for 2 servings, it is quite delicate in flavour and made enough for breakfast with leftovers. I might be tempted to alter some of the spices next time to increase the flavour, perhaps a little more sage, a bit of nutmeg as another reviewer suggested and maybe a little bit of grated onion. Thank you for taking the time to submit this recipe Lee Fogle, we will certainly be making it again.

Sandy's Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
So sorry, we really didn't care for this recipe. I couldn't get past the taste of the canned soup. However, the texture was very nice, creamy, and I liked the short preparation time. I poached a couple of chicken breasts rather than using the canned version and as I was out of milk, I used cereal cream thinned a bit. I do think if I can come up with an alternative ingredient for the soup it would be a terrific quick-to-make dinner. Thank you for posting it.

Spicy Smoked Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
I thought this was very good, mildly spicy, and easy to make. I used turkey thigh (skin off) from our local German market, yellow pepper because that was what I had on hand, and Pace picante sauce, medium heat. It is an excellent basic recipe which I will make again. Thank you, Ross B.

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
I thought this was an interesting recipe, different for our normal style of meal as we don't tend to eat very much corn. But, I was serving a spicy meat dish, was browsing on the site and thought this would be a good on the side. I knew that, for our tastes, it would be too sweet, so decreased the sugar to about 2 TBSP and followed rest of the recipe as written. I agree about letting the dish sit for a few minutes as I thought it did change the texture for the better. The taste was quite good. Thank you, Lee Ann Clarke.

Bangers and Mash

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
I am sorry but I wasn't taken with this recipe. I made it as written with the exception of having slightly more onion and used 3 large russet potatoes. I very much agree with the last reviewer who felt that the better the gravy, the better the dish. I am sure if it were made with homemade gravy or a top quality premade type it would improve the dish for my own taste. I used a package of McCormick brown gravy mix and really didn't care for the taste of the sauce. I also think also that the quality of sausage, even between beef sausages, will of course make a difference. I used very plain unspiced beef sausage and wonder if something with a bit of heat wouldn't be an improvement. But, Amanda Fair, I do appreciate your taking the time to share your grandmother's recipe. I may try this again with the above changes. Thank you.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
I am not sure if one more review is needed for this very tasty recipe! I made the sauce with slight alterations due to ingredients on hand: I used almost all Dijon mustard but had to supplement with a bit of German Hot Mustard, I didn't have chicken breasts but used thighs, bone in and skin on. I probably added a bit more mayo and used HP sauce instead of steak sauce. There was more than enough sauce for four chicken thighs, so before I mixed it with the chicken, I put about half of it into a container with two small pork boneless steaks, still frozen, for supper the next night. I ended up roasting the chicken for about 40 minutes at 350 and didn't feel the need to baste. It was tender and delicious, and I do think would have been even better if cooked on the BBQ. Also, the sauce by itself is terrific and would be great as a dip or as a spread in a sandwich. It was also very good with the pork which was BBQ'd. Definitely to be made again in our house. Thank you tahoegirl.

My Favorite Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
I thought this was quite good but must admit I did not follow the recipe as written. I used soy sauce, as I didn't have tamari sauce on hand, used whole wheat pasta, and, as I wasn't paying proper attention to the recipe, added the toasted sesame seeds to the mixture rather than garnishing before serving. I followed the additional suggestions by the author and used fresh ginger, and let the dish stand for a couple of hours before serving (one hour of the time refrigerated). I think that if this were served with regular pasta, as listed, I would give it a "5" rating, and I do look forward to making again. It needs a touch of something to be served with the stronger flavoured whole wheat pasta, perhaps a bit of cilentro, if that is your preference. This said, my husband loved it . Thank you very much kelcampbell. I look forward to trying other recipes in your collection.
